stupid & senseless: uncle terry crews strikes again

I keep forgetting that I have a whole series dedicated to general stupidity (usually by ‘celebrities’.

Anyway.


…that was the first stupid tweet he posted.

Along with the following tweet:

he doubled down three weeks later with this

….OKAY, BUT WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ASKED HIM?

Who wakes up in the morning and thinks, I wonder what Terry Crews thinks about blacklivesmatter? 

Nobody.

terry crews takes offence to being an uncle tom, but…

Uncle Tom
/ʌŋkl ˈtɒm/

noun

OFFENSIVENORTH AMERICAN
  1. a black man considered to be excessively obedient or servile to white people.
    • a person regarded as betraying their cultural or social allegiance.

…if the shoe fits!

When asked about the backlash (and I don’t know why they even bothered) he doubled down:

“I didn’t go on ABC or NBC to do this. This is my Twitter, this is my private network! And I’m being told to shut up, be quiet, don’t say anything, just keep it shut. You’re a coon, don’t say anything.”

“And this is the thing, it’s really weird because I realize, some Black lives matter more than others because they don’t want me as a Black man to talk, because with anything it’s like ‘You gon make us look bad’ but the deal is, I don’t care about how we look, I care about how we are,” he added. “We have to really examine these things within each other. There’s colorism going on, there’s still the light skin, dark skin thing happening…”

Seriously, is this really necessary? If he’s worried about losing his various jobs, all he needs to do is do what he did to Gabrielle Union – act like he didn’t see shit.

Uncle Terry, nobody has silenced you. Nobody wants you, as a black man, to not have your say. The problem is that you WON’T SHUT THE FUCK UP and consider any viewpoints but your own.

I don’t care about Terry Crews making black people look bad – he’s not anyone’s spokesperson (although, he seems to have missed that memo).

He mentions colorism, which is a major issue in the black community, but it has nothing to do with equality amongst white people.

Now, Uncle Terry is entitled to his opinion – but notice how EACH time, he comes for #blacklivesmatter. It’s not just, ‘I love everybody equally’ it’s, ‘I love everybody equally and I don’t think we should say black lives matter because it might turn into black lives better’.

Allow me to link y’all to this post I wrote – NEWSFLASH – people already see things that way.

So, now what Terry? Do we stop fighting for equality? Do we sit down and say, ‘no our lives aren’t better, and they don’t matter’?

Do we live with discrimination? With knowing that we’ll always have a black mark against us because of the colour of skin? Do we tell young black children that yes, their lives matter, but they must not be better than their white counterparts?

Like…?

Terry Crews is not the only black person to think this way – but they all need to shut the fuck up. When we’re treated equally, they can come and have their say.

Until then, BYE.

ETA: WHY WON’T HE GO AWAY?

I’M TIRED.

‘forget what you’ve lost’ – so should Breonna Taylor’s family forget what they lost? A young woman with a promising future ahead of her. Not to mention anyone else who’s lost a loved one due to racism….

The man clearly has more muscles than sense.

And he needs to shut the fuck up.


The grammar and capitalisation are off in this post, but…I don’t even care to edit it further. Just ugh.

stupid and senseless: covid-19 edition

(…and before anyone calls me insensitive, I’m here to complain about other people’s insensitivity – stupid & senseless so happens to be the perfect way to do it).

Something worse than Supernatural (post season 5) is upon us – COVID-19 – a globe trotting virus that simply doesn’t give a fuck.

In usual fashion, people have taken this opportunity to show us how much they suck.

I’ve decided to give you a nice little round up.

First up we have the UK government whose plan for the virus has to be the most insane thing I’ve ever heard – until I realised that there’s basically no money.  They’re not testing every case because they can’t afford to and they simply don’t have the means to either. How could they when the same government have been cutting service for the past ten years? So they’re basically like, ‘if you catch it, you’re on your own and hey, maybe you’ll be immune?’.

God save us all. Continue reading “stupid and senseless: covid-19 edition”

stupid and senseless: dear assholes, jeffrey dean morgan has a message for you

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.

I love that the swear words are edited out lol 

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

Full story here

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.

stupid and senseless: aaron carter (na na na na na na na na)

Oh, Aaron, what are we going to do with you? That video is still one of the most embarrassing things I’ve ever seen, lol.

Anyway!

Ooh Wee

Aaron was in the news recently for his DUI arrest and subsequent fifteen minutes of fame. He milked that arrest like it needed to be delivered the next morning. Damn. He called Nick out (this is all Aaron does when it comes to Nick, but that’s related to other shit), he said people were body shaming him. We didn’t know the truth. The truth would come out.

https://twitter.com/aaroncarter/status/886770174275268608

This statement had me rolllllllling. Arrested for being a celebrity? Oh and he wasn’t under the influence even though…

arresting officers witnessed the Aaron’s Party singer ‘driving all over the road and running into the median’ while operating a white Chevy Suburban with no tags

Alright, boo.

stupid and senseless: don’t pizza lecki off

It’s the General Election Day in the UK! Apparently the Conservatives are on course to win…

…and if they do I will probably join the circus. It was nice knowing you all!
It’s also Comey Testifies Day in the US! And World’s Oceans Day. And… World’s Brain Tumour Day (I didn’t know that!)

It’s also I need a break from politics and shitty life day.

So, I’m going to revisit my favourite person who I have neglected of late due to apathy and having better things to do.

Here’s a post about Jared Padalecki being stupid.

Now I want pizza

Long story short: Jared ordered food using Favor. It didn’t turn up. He got pissed, huffed and puffed and took his complaints to Twitter.

I have no idea what happened past that his food didn’t show up, and he was annoyed.

Somehow he got talking to customer service and this tweet happened:

Dearest @ Favor “Kobe” at customer support needs to be fired. I’m sure he’d land happily with @united.

First of all dearest? What is this a greeting card? A letter to a long list friend? How courtship began in the 1950s? How do you waste seven out of one hundred and forty characters on dearest? His Twitter game is all the way off. Personally, I would have gone for a succinct ‘Yo’ or ‘Oi’. There’s passive aggressiveness and then there’s concision. The latter is more important.

Also, why – why – is he posting this person’s name on Twitter? Hasn’t he learnt? Oh, that’s right. Dude doesn’t give a fuck.

The tweet was posted (and deleted) in April. I didn’t see it back then, although, I did hear about it. I didn’t realise he straight up said the dude needed to be fired. For something that’s probably not his fault. And the ‘land happily with @united‘. I can’t work out what that was.

He wants Kobe to be violently mishandled off or onto a plane or just in general?

Or he thinks Kobe will land a job at United due to his poor customer service skills?

Or he’s just an idiot who really didn’t need to bring up United at all?

Correct answer wins a prize.

I saw the Pada Defense Warrior League hard at work. They insisted that Jared would never wish violence on anyone and that he felt horrible about what happened to the man on that United plane. And that he was within his rights to complain, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Something tells me that Jared felt more vindicated than horrible* when he saw that video. He was probably thinking, “THIS IS HOW TERRIBLY THEY TREAT ME MINUS THE VIOLENCE AND STUFF!!!!!!!!!”.
Everyone on his contact list probably got that video plus an essay about his unfair treatment.

Dearest Friends, if you haven’t yet had an opportunity to see this disgraceful act, here you go. Much of this justifies my complaints over the years!!!!!! I mean, weather delays, being forced to check a bag and every other petty thing imaginable almost equals the severity of this video when you add them all up and take into account my pain and suffering!….

Jim Beaver was also going at it with some fan, claiming that Jared has a right to complain. People were surprised, but Jim Beaver is never the voice of reason. Ever. That dude has no sense. I know I should respect my elders but people like him make it hard

I’m sure Kobe is just fine, but I am truly disturbed (yet not surprised) that Jared has no problem belittling people in this way. I’m disturbed that so many people think this is okay.

He talks about treating people fairly and kindly but doesn’t do the same to people he deems unworthy. No one who works in customer service is paid enough to deal with the bullshit. Sometimes, there’s absolutely nothing they can do, and customers getting pushy won’t change that.

On the flip side, yes customer support workers can be flippant and they shouldn’t be, but I probably would be too. You’re basically listening to people complain all day long. Sometimes as a human being (who breathes oxygen), you have to consider that the other person is just doing their job and that job doesn’t involve kissing your ass.

Like I’ve said before, the common denominator in Jared’s bad customer service experiences is him.

Anyway, if it’s alright for Jared to do it, I’m going to tweet the CW** and demand that they fire Jared because he’s annoying.

Hopefully he lands happily @ somewhere far away from any television screen.

*I’m joking, wildly speculating, opinion, didn’t happen, please don’t sue, or leave abusive messages etc etc. 

**Not actually going to do this. See above.

A Divalecki edition! Woo.. .

stupid and senseless: dean cain

So, there I was.

I was wondering what Dean Cain was up to. I discovered that he’s done a shit ton of Christmas movies and that…he was one of those ‘celebrities’ that voted for Trump. TRUMP!

His reasoning:

“I voted for Trump. He has my support. I wanted to change the system. I was not a fan of Hillary Clinton’s. I didn’t like her cadre of people around her, and I don’t like career politicians.”

Sounds legit. Continue reading “stupid and senseless: dean cain”

stupid and senseless: always keep fighting

First of all, Happy Christmas/Holidays/Can Anyone Be Bothered?, snarklings!

Onto the good stuff!

Recently I got a comment that claimed that the Supernatural fans are a family that comfort each other. They’re great people who are against bullying and they don’t offend anyone.

Perhaps that person can explain this 500+ word email that I received…

Name: UnimpressedAnon

Comment: OMG YOU NEED TO FUCK THE FUCK OFF. SHIT, I don’t think I have seen a more useless piece of garbage in my entire existence. I mean, who..what pathetic piece of shit would try start a blog for the sole purpose of badmouthing a television show.
I mean, seriously? Have people not told you this before, if you DON’T LIKE IT. STOP WATCHING IT. It’s that simple. Oh yeah, just try it, honey. God knows we don’t need any of you. The world doesn’t need any part of you. 
You have so much hatred and free useless time that you actually would take these thoughts and anger and use them against an actor or a show, and…I’m not even mad anymore. It’s just pathetic. And yeah..i should probably follow my own advice and leave it, but gosh, you have fucking compelled me to write this. ‘
SPN snark…stop encouraging this, you sick fuckup. This isn’t a huge global issue..like Donald Trump becoming President or the apparent rise in hate crimes, which I’m SURE don’t relate. BUt coming back to the topic on hand, People aren’t going to fall over and DIE because of this show, as far as I know, it’s a pretty good show ans the actors do a pretty damn good job of it, and this isn’t being said out of some blind devotion, or unyielding love. It’s the truth. And that’s my opinion and you have yours. There are things i don’t like either, know what the difference between you and me is, that I don’t have the stupidity or the audacity to actually start a hate blog about things I personally don’t like. So, guess what, suck it up and go do something positive with your life.(Some of the categories in your Other Stuff actually seem nice and sensible) and I don’t know for the life of me why those are included in the OTHER STUFF. You talk about distributing dignity, how is this, snarking, hating, getting together a community of haters to talk shit dignified or civil. IT’s not.
Do yourself a favour and just leave it, these actors/directors/writers do not care about your existence or rants. I doubt they even know you exist. They’re surrounded by love and care and they take that and they turn into good things, positive things. Campaigns,charities, Scavenger hunts. (Random Acts, Always Keep Fighting) 
But do you care about that, OH no ,because Jared’s twitter and Jensen’s fame and Misha’s popularity can only be used for trolling and stupid posts according to you. Look at them, actually look at them. They’ve made so much out of their lives, This particular show, infact has changed so many lives for the better. The entire SPN family has. How have you done that. How have your snark posts and hate comments changed any lives or transformed people. If they haven’t, It simply isn’t your place to talk shit about them.
Just help yourself, and stop encouraging this bullshit. And I obviously had a lot to say, you might not even read all of this . But if you do, I hope you can understand that this..THIS, isn’t just crap filled with sentences stating the perfection of the show fuelled by hormones or unwavering, blind love. Just advice.

I didn’t reply to UnimpressedAnon personally, but I have chosen to give them two things:

  • Their own stupid and senseless post.
  • The attention that Jared, Jensen and whoever will never give them.

Rapunzelecki is basically the Donald Trump of ‘Social Media Family’.

Not gonna mention any specific actor names but y’all know what I’m talking about. And also there’s a giant picture anyway which is making me question point of the lack of names, but whatever. Continue reading “Rapunzelecki is basically the Donald Trump of ‘Social Media Family’.”

stupid and senseless: when attention whoring goes awry

I was just browsing through the news and I came across this.

Tut, tut, Teen Wolf.

I’m not sure what’s worse: the video, the attention that said video has apparently received, that it’s somehow news or the textbook cookie cutter apology.

Either way, I’m guessing that it’s a slow news day when ‘idiot does idiotic thing’ is newsworthy. Actually, I think it’s a reflection of the fact that journalism/the news in general has gone to shit.
