Well Hollywood, you should be hanging your head in shame. With all the recent rolling up of the red carpet to expose what has been swept under it, I just shake my head. This behaviour should have been eradicated decades ago when Hollywood icon Shirley Temple Black exposed the “trip to the casting couch” for many young actors (including herself). But what was the response? Friggin crickets.
Year after year I have sat through actors using the Academy Awards to vent about….decent roles for women…. decent roles for African Americans…. we hate our President….what about slaves…Jews…transgenders. This social bandwagon has got so bad the Academy Awards are no longer about the “best movie” but what social agenda they want to push each year.
In the last few weeks I have watched high profile actors and actresses ducking for cover over the sexual abuse accusations. One Hollywood icon said she had heard rumblings about it but didn’t act because it didn’t happen to her. Another called Weinstein “a god”. A few comedians have made “clever insinuating” jokes but no one has had the balls to confront it head on. All these teary Oscar acceptance speeches, gushing about how the industry has everyone’s backs and what a great collective group of talented people they are, just seems so hollow. Especially when one of the culprits is sitting in the audience.
Please don’t get me started on all the Hollywood child actors who have turned to drugs or have died young. God knows what lead them there.
Hypocritical Hollywood should take a long hard look at themselves before they start telling us how to think, feel and act!
PSST Dear god please don’t let them use this as their next Academy Awards theme! Considering they all turned a blind eye.
I am thinking in hindsight if you are going to get 10 years for holding up a bank with a water pistol you might as well have used the real thing. Just saying. In his defence though, he told the judge he used the water pistol to make sure nobody got hurt. Naw, lucky the cops didn’t open fire and blow him to smithereens.
OMG, are you that stupid?
Apparently we are not alone. One ex NASA scientiest believes the reason we haven’t spied a single damn alien is because they are living underwater on some planet out in deep space. Maybe even under a frozen ocean.
Their survival would be improved because they wouldn’t suffer all the nasty universe issues like exploding stars or space radiation.
He goes even further to suggest they are well protected under a big chunk of ice that makes it impossible for us to contact them. Yep, I’m hearing ya. Mobile phone coverage is a bitch!
The “fish like” aliens are evidently dumber than us because they can’t build fires. Oh well move on, nothing to see hear. Seriously, do we need any more dumbasses in the world?
Oh for the love of salmonella. When the Cardiff foodbank appealed for donations they were shocked to discover someone had given them a 46 year old can of Heinz kidney soup. The can was so old it still had the price in the old currency and had also been discontinued for over 35 years. The foodbank is now requesting people check dates before donating.
PSST It might still be OK?
What up nanny state? When a grandfather requested to have “The little bugger did his best” on his gravestone his grandson wasn’t expecting the council response. Evidently they deemed it inappropriate language. Boo. The grandson said it was his granddad’s dying wish but the English council are adamant it won’t be allowed. They fear a member of the public may get offended.
Thoughts and prayers to Las Vegas . Just a shocking event. A wicked waste of lives by a 64 year old. Words can’t express my outrage.
Why on earth is this poor sweet potato the only one left on the shelf. For the life of me…oh wait,
