Hollywood is awful, isn’t it? I mean the city, the culture, the people. Aside from Universal Studios, which is grossly overpriced, Hollywood sucks. What makes it even worse is the people that supposedly “represent the common man” that reside in and around the area. I’m sure you’ve heard of them: Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowen, Gwyneth Paltrow and the list goes on and on. We get it, you don’t like Trump. They’ve been beating that drum since November 2016. And no matter what Trump does, says, thinks about, or looks at, he’s immediately slammed for it. Trump could cure cancer, and liberals would talk about the pharmaceutical companies losing money and the way it would overpopulate the planet. There’s no way you can win with these guys. This isn’t about left v. right or Democrat v. republican because that’s an endless, age old battle. I’m not going to sit here and try to sway you either way. You can scroll my social media if you want my opinions on such things. What I will do is heap praise on someone not even from the good ol’ US of A. And that man is Ricky Gervais. I’m not even sure how he managed to walk around the stage with balls that big. But he took all the tea we threw in the harbor, mixed with the threads of his fallen Red Coat brethren and drank a protein shake that awakened the testosterone levels of a gorilla during mating season. If there is a visual description of absolutely not giving a fuck, it took place January 5, 2020. And the world needed to hear it. So did you. Because you’re probably a hippy too and think the world is solved by hugs, plants and cleansing crystals.
Ricky Gervais said what most people are thinking but what makes it so epic is that he said it directly to them. This wasn’t to a crowd of civilians/fans. This was a room full of the accused. And rightfully so. Leave it to one of their own to call them out for their bullshit. When you’re dealing with people of this “level” they answer to virtually no one. And egos only get bigger, they more floors you climb in the building. Think Whoopie Goldberg is arrogant? Try the CEO of ABC. So when your peer, takes your soapbox away before you can even stand on it, what do you do? You pretend it didn’t hurt you, and “the show must go on!”. It was too late. Ricky had put the nail in their coffin before they even had the chance to shed one fake tear for “humanity”. This coming from people who travel by private jet to events about combating climate change. Actresses celebrating their abortions like its a lifetime achievement award. Its all so stupid. What’s worse than these glorified clowns spewing the shit that comes out of their mouth is the people that actually listen/believe them.
If, at any point in time, you find yourself taking action because of something that a celebrity said, please take a moment to reconsider your life choices. I wouldn’t trust half those people to watch a port-a-potty and you got some people out here actually quoting their advice like its gospel. There aren’t enough words in the English language for me to even begin to try to properly convey how little I fucking care what Tom Hanks thinks about Middle East tension. The only knowledge Tom Hanks has about war is what he learned while filming “Saving Private Ryan” and when Woody oversaw the toy soldiers infiltration of Andy’s birthday party in “Toy Story”. These are not people who should use the platform they have, and don’t kid yourself, they have a platform, to try to create divide in a country that affords them the opportunity for said platform. Look, I’m not saying America is perfect. No where is. Not even that shit hole coffee shop you frequent where they know you by sight. Shits fucked up everywhere. But most places are way more fucked up than here. Don’t believe the hype about these “happiest people in the world”. Finland pays a 51.6% tax rate, has a population of 5.5 million, and averages 1.65 births per woman (2016). And let’s not even discuss its God awful weather. Finland is an entire country slightly larger than Los Angeles, they take more than half of their citizens wages and has more deaths per year than births. If the government can’t satisfy 5 million people while taking 51% of their earnings then they for damn sure can afford to produce a report stating their citizens are the “happiest in the world”. Besides, nothing is stopping you from picking up and moving there. I’m sure Sven, the White Walkers and the yeti from Matterhorn would love to have you. But let’s bring this full circle, I’m sure you have some strongly worded tweets to post.
Standing in front of “elites” in any forum is difficult. I don’t care if it’s Ricky Gervais or Ricky Bobby. It’s not easy to be in the spotlight of those just as capable, rich, famous and entitled as yourself. But to then take their own pathetic calls for “justice” and smash them in the back of their face with it is God-like. For that, hats of to Mr. Gervais, bad British dental hygiene and all things Brexit.
