Then he issued some really long-winded non-apology(that didn't address his borderline racist and antisemitic comment BTW) about how he was just under stress due to the creative process of the show or some bullshit.
I don't agree that that apology was bullshit. I know that when I'm
tired and exhausted, I make vaguely racist comments all the time!
ETA: After reading the latest apology that poddroid
You know, when my father died a year ago, I spent the whole day alone in a shocked silence. The idea of taking to twitter the day he died and spamming his favorite actors to get them to trend his passing makes my stomach turn. And if any of my friends or family tried to do the same, Id be mortified.
Yes, because everybody deals with grief in the exact. same. way.
I get feeling like trying to turn someone's death into a twitter trend is tacky and disrespectful, but that does NOT give Matt the right to mock them the way he did (and yes, Matt, that was indeed mocking, despite your denial - do I need to buy you a dictionary?). Well, I guess it gives him the right to mock them, but it also gives me the right to think he's an asshole of the highest order. It's called empathy, you fucking dipshit.
And in true Ernesto fashion I did it in an irreverent way. My methods are certainly controversial, and If you follow me, and are a REAL fan, you’d know that.
God, he's like those comedians who justify their being offensive with "but that's ~comedy!" His bit about being a "REAL fan" cracks me up too. I'm familiar with his twitter, I know he says a lot of irreverent shit. But I still
thought his mocking tweet was beyond the pale. STFU, Matt.
And the person you’re referring to was indeed acting like an asshole. They said some outlandish things to me and I have no problem standing by what I said.
Right, outlandish things. Apparently "outlandish" means not simply accepting the crap that Julie was spewing and calling her and Matt out on their bullshit.
Melvin: Are you a racist? Ernesto: As far as I’m concerned we are all of the human race. We all bleed the same blood. So to answer your question, no.
I bet he doesn't "see" color, either. I bet he has a ton of black friends. I bet he doesn't care whether you're white or black or even purple! (Those darn purple people.)
He sounds like such a clueless white man in that tumblr post. (Probably because he is.) Not to mention a total piece of shit.
