Another week, and another Supernatural actor doing something douchey. Sorry, I mean ‘deuchey’.
The drama started when JDM posted a picture of himself in a shirt with ‘Blue Lives Matter’ on it.
Blue Lives Matter = a countermovement in response to Black Lives Matter in the United States.
Needless to say, he got a negative reaction. And this is how he responded.
‘All lives matter‘
My favourite part is ‘I’m so tired of mean people‘ lol, who was mean to you before this, though? Isn’t he currently getting his ass kissed over his TWD role?
Anyway, after the bad press he ‘apologised’.
Hey folks, I’m gonna delete this thing. God knows it’s out there anyway. I stand behind the sentiment… but, what was meant as one thing has been taken as another.
I understand those that are upset… and to those people I apologize. Of course black lives matter. I stand behind that. Always have. My point.. Calling me a nazi for wearing this shirt, that was given to me by a cops grieving mother at a con? She wasn’t trying to undercut BLM. Nor was I when I put it on… that’s a promise.This country means the world to me. The good people in it mean the world to me… the ones looking for a fight around every corner? Racists? Bullies? They don’t.We are a country divided and its getting scarier everyday. Everyone means something.
Good people are needed. Now more than ever. I shall take better care in wording when posting opinions… but opinions? We all have em, and are entitled to them. I appreciate the ones on here that have been thoughtful responses… the ones that are filled with more hate…. let’s block each other forever shall we?
It’s gotten very tricky to say things that are politically correct that everyone agrees on. We can be offended by thoughts or opinions that we weren’t offended by yesterday. So again, my apologies to you. Ok, let me navigate this mine field a bit before I try again. All my best. Jd

‘Of course black lives matter. I stand behind that. Always have.’
Where’s the evidence? I haven’t seen him talking about black lives matter or racism or the disproportionate number of black people killed by the US police.
That the woman who gave it to him is black has to be the flimsiest defence ever. Like what goes for one black person should go for everyone. Where have I heard that before?
‘She wasn’t trying to undercut BLM’ – maybe not but the Blue Lives Matter movement was created to undercut Black Lives Matter. A simple Google search will tell him this.
I don’t think people should have called him a Nazi but I don’t have any sympathy for him either. If he’s bold enough to post the pic, he should be bold enough to expect and subsequently deal with the response that came. Has he been living in a cloud for the past couple of years?
His apology was a classic rambling non-apology. I’m sure his fans will say he’s liberal, anti-Trump etc etc. I’m sure he is. He’s just an ignorant asshole as well.
Colour me shocked.
