Great, John Stewart herpes edition.
To all the chicks who made this Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator famous? Fuck you!
What I’m saying is A LOT of people are prejudiced. Some with good reasons (war, slavery etc). Acting like people should be perfect and pure is crazy, because no one really is. All we can ask is that people keep their BS to themselves and make an effort to tolerate and get along. Mel was mostly doing just that. Private screaming matches with his girlfriend shouldn’t make him a pariah, if he wasn’t using those slurs against minorities in their presence he should be allowed to apologise and promise not to do it again.
We live in crazy climate of political correctness with eveyone over compensating when it’s not even needed. We destroy people now in the court of popular opinion so we can feel like we’re different and better.
* they’ve never said “Anything”………….. damn lack of edit function.
That’s a gross oversimplification of what he was talking about. Consequences for what? Whatever slurs Mel and Alec used they weren’t directed at black people or gays it’s unfortunate they used those words but people usually do reach for the most insulting thing they can think of when they’re very angry. Mels stuff wasn’t even public they were private spats with his mistress. How many people can say they’ve never said while drunk or angry that would look fucking terrible to someone else who wasn’t intended to hear it?
We can’t even say Merry Christmas anymore thanks to political correctness.
I agree with Gary Old man political correctness is out of control. Everyone is so afraid of appearing racist, misogynistic, homophobic that we have to turn people into pariahs to prove that we’re not like them. The problem is that eventually even satirists might have to stop making jokes if this continues at the rate it is. Everyone has become so sensitive that it’s becoming a nightmare, all someone has to do is complain about a movie, song, game being inappropriate and it’ll be changed and censored.
