Then there was that time that Tom Cruise was so in love with a newly-enslaved Katie Holmes that he almost murdered Oprah. Ah, it is to love. But even more offensive was when Tom spoke out against Brooke Shields’ use of anti-depressants to cope with her post-partum depression.
And as far as the Brooke Shields thing is, look. You gotta understand, I really care about Brooke Shields. I– I think here’s a– a– a wonderful and talented woman. And– I wanna see her do well. And I know that– psychiatry is– is a pseudo science.
Now, it’s not offensive to have a negative opinion about psychiatry, but to accuse Brooke Shields of buying into “pseudo science” when you’re also the face of a religion that worships the friggen saucer people is a bit much.
Dog the Bounty Hunter lost his show in the wake of racist comments he made on a tape acquired by The National Enquirer. Dog took issue with his son dating an African American girl. NOT because he dislikes other races or anything, but because he didn’t want the pressure of having to be careful not to say the ‘N’ word. That’s like the most racist defense of being not racist ever.
50 Cent caused outrage when he LOLed about the earthquake that decimated Japan. Cent tweeted, “Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing,” and “Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoes from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol.”
F*cked up stuff to say for sure, but I can’t help but be mostly offended by his use of LOL.
