First things first…
I made that as a joke, but it’s now a very pleasant viewing experience. 😀
This isn’t really a specific post but more a round up of Jared’s douchey ways.
- Talking about accidentally hurting his kid at cons. WHY? I really don’t understand. They’re not cute stories, or ‘lulz, aw, what a shame’, they’re just ridiculous. I think the general gist was:
I put my sons head through the wall
OKAY? AND? SHUT THE FUUUUUUCK UP.
There was also something about him throwing a T-rex toy and hitting his kid in the face with it and feeling bad about it (perfect story to tell a bunch of strangers!). He sounds like a complete fucking idiot. And then you have fans squealing about this shit…I would say that I’m amazed at the foolishness but I’m not. They all need to shut the fuck up.
- I also hear that he’s peddling his sister’s book, which is something to do with the environment (Zzzz) and all of that we have to preserve the world for our children, blah, blah.
….meanwhile, Jared is complaining about airlines every other week. Uhm. I have must have missed it when they announced that air travel was 100% green. Oh, and I’m sure he walks everywhere too. I’m sure that recycling your wine bottles makes you a real fucking hero to your sheeple, Jared. So well done. #Padahypocrite #STFU
- He’s BFFs with Jep Robertson, star of Dick
From what I can tell, fandom was aware of this (I saw posts from waaay back with them squeeing over this, like it was so fucking awesome. #SPNLOGIC), but in light of revelations (I really could have told everyone that that family weren’t shit) about their views on Atheism (Atheists should be raped apparently) and homosexuality (which is just like bestiality, apparently), and this
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person,” Robertson is quoted in GQ. “Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
….and no doubt many other things, people are side-eyeing him.
Jep’s response to some of what was HIS father said was:
“We’re not quite as outspoken as my dad, but I’m definitely in line,” he said. “If somebody asks, I tell ’em what the Bible says.”
I would say that these people need Jesus but clearly that hasn’t worked out so well. They probably haven’t realised that there’s a New Testament. Too much reading involved, no doubt.
I recall there being tweets of Jared reading one of their books. And I should add that both Jared and Jensen have been pictured with this dude, but Jared appears to be actively hanging out with him. He went as far as posting a picture of Jep in one of his hideous ‘Always Keep Fighting’ shirts.
Fans aren’t happy about this for obvious reasons, but you know, Jared’s doing that whole thing where he ignores that and continues to shaft fandom out of money, on a false basis, IMO. Oh and it makes you wonder how legitimate his whole liberal persona is, doesn’t it? People will say, ‘oh, but he’s friends with Misha, who’s pretty liberal’. Yeah, well, he’s friends with this asshole too. Find a new rhetoric. Oh and yeah, we don’t all agree with our friends views and opinions but at the same time, decent people generally don’t surround themselves with jerks. To anyone who claims otherwise….
- Always Keep Fighting
I also heard that people have been banned from giving their stories regarding depression (because Jared’s an expert now, and totally qualified to be talking about it?!). On one hand, I kind of get the ban – at the end of the day, depression is awful and talking about it doesn’t exactly make for a good time at a convention, on other hand, if people are paying good money for the con and the shirts, they should be allowed to talk about it, right? If the fan testimonies are too deep, then, oh well. That is what happens when you start talking about this kind of thing in a wholly reckless manner and pretend to care about other people. Can we get someone with the right qualifications and common sense up in here?! Please.
- People are still defending his PSH comments
And why wouldn’t they when this idiot had the nerve to start a whole campaign about depression less than a year after his own callous, disgusting remarks…. With no acknowledgement of said remarks. Oh, but he’s raised a million dollars (I’d like to see those receipts) for charity so it doesn’t matter anymore.
There must be an alternate reality that I don’t know about called NeverOwnUpToYourShittopia.
Anyway. All hail Padajesus, here to save us all from ourselves, one precious dollar at a time. #NotReally #PrivateJetFund #LandOfDeuche #DropsMic
