Newsflash!  Human beings are generally complex and sometimes show seemingly contradictory behavior.  But it doesn't always mean they're full of shiat.

Neil Patrick Harris

The "How I Met Your Mother" star is just one of many celebs who puts out a statement via social media and then asks the media to respect his privacy. That's counter-intuitive, isn't it?


Yes, because announcing a major life event to your fans is exactly the same as having your children stalked by a pack of scuzzy paparazzi.

Yeah, I wanted to stick up for NPH as well. All he's asking is to cut out the middleman. He's got a twitter account. Anybody that wants a peek into his life can follow him.

When a wife and husband announce that they're having twins, does it have anything to do with them being straight?
 
2013-01-14 09:22:02 AM  
Oh, pointing to Al Gore and not asking what he did with the family fortune of Occidental Oil stock?

The rest of them were fairly low grade hypocrisies. High profile people can screw up operations for an airline, there's invasion of privacy versus what you share with the world, and PETA is a hypocrisy in and of itself.

The Jennifer Aniston and Dr. Phil ones had the beginnings of a point, but that was about it.

The Jamie Foxx one was the worst. Conservatives have this weird idea that acting in a movie means you 100% endorse every last thing in said movie. When Terrance Howard was in Hustle and Flow, they would ask "How can he talk about treating women with respect when he played a pimp?". In that same vein, Django Unchained doesn't "promote" gun violence.

No, and neither should this. But the entry on NPH was weak as hell. "OMG!! HE Wants PRIVACY but said something on TWITTER!!" is a bunch of weak bulllshiat, and given Fox News' leanings, there is only one reason why they would put NPH on that list. A guy, who by all accounts is a stand up guy and a great family man.

What? No. This isn't 1850. People who say they are having a kid (whether the couple is straight or not) could mean they are adopting as well, or having a surrogate.

But that's not my point anyway. Quit changing the subject

2013-01-14 09:53:25 AM  
I think this list proves that whoever wrote it doesn't comprehend the concept of moderation. Like, being an environmentalist does not ipso facto mean you want to get rid of oil entirely and you're tying yourself to trees in order to save them. Sting and John Travolta can zip around in their private jets and still be interested in curbing our oil dependency. Neil Patrick Harris probably wants to share a limited amount of information about his private life with his fans, but dislikes being stalked by the press. Jamie Foxx can want guns to be more strictly regulated, but still want them to be available. Lady Gaga can dislike the way our culture treats women's bodies and still want to exercise.

The one I will give them is Paris Hilton doing a "get out the vote" thing and not being registered to vote.

I mean come on, while I agree the NPH entry was a reach that was probably motivated by teh ghey, the rest of this is standard brain-dead MSM nonsense. And I'm not even sure this qualifies as manufactured outrage. No one is going to go out and commit violence based on this list. "Manufactured outrage" should be reserved for stuff like the numerous Reuters & co. anti-Israeli photoshopping or photostaging incidents.

When acting is your job, the character that you are playing does not always represent your personal beliefs and neither does the movie.

The problem is that Fox News knows that people are gullible enough to think that they do. People have a problem with separating fantasy from reality. They think Jamie Fox is going to come off the set of Django and start killing white people with guns.

THAT is the problem.

Yes. Oh what an asshole. I can't believe the nerve of someone daring to announce a big deal piece of news and ten expect the paparazzi to leave them alone.

Now, if his publicist would regularly call TMZ and tell them their scheduled Gymboree visits, that'd be one thing. Getting a birth announcement out of the way and asking for a little respect is totally different.

I support the military and believe it's a vital and necessary and honorable institution.

And I'd have done anything to dodge the draft that sent more than a half million Americans straight to their deaths ... all for nothing at all ... partially because of that reverence for the military.

A soldier takes personal responsibility for defending his freedom, and the rest of us benefit from that. When he is used by his leaders for any purpose other than national defense, it is an assault on his honor. Instead of being a willing and voluntary guardian of peace and freedom, he becomes a conscripted tool of conquest.

Sybarite: Neil Patrick Harris

The "How I Met Your Mother" star is just one of many celebs who puts out a statement via social media and then asks the media to respect his privacy. That's counter-intuitive, isn't it?

Yes, because announcing a major life event to your fans is exactly the same as having your children stalked by a pack of scuzzy paparazzi.


Well, its down to the point Jodie Foster made in her speech. She came out to the people in her life, and doesn't see why she should have to formally come out to the world. It's her life and her privacy.

If you're using social media to promote your personal and build your brand in order to profit from it, it's a bit contradictory to wine about privacy in the same matter in the same sentence.

Anyone got a source for this? I searched 'Eliza Dushku PETA', and found nothing but stories about them shiatting bricks about her bowhunting statement. I then searched 'Eliza Dushku poses PETA', and found nothing but normal stories of her posing for ics and stories about PETA shiatting bricks about her bowhunting statement. Is Fox making shiat up yet again?

As for the hunting thing, I guess PETA wants 1,000s of dead game animals each year succumbing to starvation, rather than a quick bullet or arrow. That sounds humane. Of course, when did PETA ever know what they were talking about? They've taken what is an actual good cause, and turned it into a joke. I see them as being 100% like the Tea Party: Good foundation with a bunch of ione-eyed gin soaked carpenters building the platform they use for the platform out of remnants from out in back of a housing complex that fell to shiat in the housing bubble burst.
 
2013-01-14 02:17:11 PM  

mahuika: I think this list proves that whoever wrote it doesn't comprehend the concept of moderation. Like, being an environmentalist does not ipso facto mean you want to get rid of oil entirely and you're tying yourself to trees in order to save them. Sting and John Travolta can zip around in their private jets and still be interested in curbing our oil dependency. Neil Patrick Harris probably wants to share a limited amount of information about his private life with his fans, but dislikes being stalked by the press. Jamie Foxx can want guns to be more strictly regulated, but still want them to be available. Lady Gaga can dislike the way our culture treats women's bodies and still want to exercise.

The one I will give them is Paris Hilton doing a "get out the vote" thing and not being registered to vote.


I'm not clicking the link but if they have Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon on there for lecturing us on how the US needs to take in Haitian AIDS patients and then later protested a hospital from being built to close to their precious estate, then well, stopped clock being right twice a day and all that.

They are using social media to promote their professional lives.

I think if you make a living portraying gun violence in cinema, then you really should STFU about gun violence. Your not part of the solution! Set some boundaries on your hypocrisy and follow them. Jamie Foxx and choose roles that do not portray gun violence where lots of white people get killed if he truly has a problem with gun violence.

/The commercial references is clearly anti-gun
//second amendment supporter
///thinks the NRA are hypocrites too


telling someone who plays pretend for a living not to play pretend is stupid. So is blaming fiction for gun violence instead of...guns.

Well, yes, but the word hypocrite actually comes from an ancient Greek word for 'actor.'

Eliza Dushku
Lots of celebs pose for PETA, but few of them do so and then admit to hunting and eating animals!

I think animals should be treated ethically. I'm also an unapologetic carnivore.
Does that make me a hypocrite?


Came here to say this. Unless PETA is also a vegetarian orgnaizaton, I see no reason why hunting and eating animals can't be done ethically.

Celebrities supporting green issues are normally the best. You can read someone complaining about building an airport because it will increase the amount of CO2, then you search for their name on Google News and realise they've run up 10,000 air miles in the past month.

Conservatives hate Hollywood because it's chocked full of liberals. It is chocked full of liberals because there are so few creative conservatives. There's Jon Voight, Dennis Miller, Glenn Beck, and that's about it.

Manufactured outrage.


Manufactured outrage is how Rupert makes his money. The man more or less said he wanted Obama to get a second term because it would mean better ratings for Fox.
 
2013-01-14 05:45:30 PM  
My two favorites were the Al Gore one and Lady Gaga. Gore's a hypocrite because he sold his network to Al-Jazeera? REALLY? Aren't there like documented cases of how big his house is, or the fact that he uses a private jet to get to places to lecture about the environment?

And Lady Gaga is a hypocrite because she doesn't have body issues, but the magazines that take her picture MIGHT photoshop her and Fox News THINKS she could stop it if she wanted to....

This one is akin to me being a hypocrite if I say that I don't condone murder, and someone else commits murder. I'm not a hypocrite just because you think I could have stopped someone else from doing something.

Unless the electricity was generated from biomass.

On economic and defense issues, many Hollywood producers and studio heads are fairly conservative and, up until 20 to 30 years ago, were habitual supporters of the GOP. However, because the religious right is now such a big part of the conservative movement and the Republican Party, the strategy has been to cater to these voters by depicting Hollywood as a godless anti-American Sodom and Gomorrah that exists solely corrupt our youth into thinking dirty thoughts and even (gasp) voting Democratic. As a result, many former Hollywood Republicans have either become independents or switched to the Democratic Party simply because they strongly dislike the modern GOP's stances on gays and other social issues.

MadAzza: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: kronicfeld: yeegrek: The Jamie Foxx one was the worst. Conservatives have this weird idea that acting in a movie means you 100% endorse every last thing in said movie. When Terrance Howard was in Hustle and Flow, they would ask "How can he talk about treating women with respect when he played a pimp?". In that same vein, Django Unchained doesn't "promote" gun violence.

Remember when Jewish director Steven Spielberg made that movie promoting the genocide of Jews? What a hypocrite!

You know how I know you never saw Schindler's List?

How can so many people in one thread misinterpret so many simple posts?

First the guy who misinterpreted the NPH comment, and now this. Drink some coffee or something, guys.


THIS! I was amazed when I saw both. Really, dial down the knee-jerking a bit and read. All y'all are on the same side. The only thread-shiatter is Brick-ForBrains and he's gone now.

babysealclubber: No, and neither should this. But the entry on NPH was weak as hell. "OMG!! HE Wants PRIVACY but said something on TWITTER!!" is a bunch of weak bullshiat, and given Fox News' leanings, there is only one reason why they would put NPH on that list. A guy, who by all accounts is a stand up guy and a great family man.


That's why it drives them crazy. He conducts his life like a perfectly normal person, and they need something good. Like how often he has sex, and whether he's the groom or the bride, and who breastfed the kids. Something lurid, so they can nod their heads and say, Yes, yes, we knew it.

Well, they're doing a lot more than recycling.

SpiderQueenDemon: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: I think animals should be treated ethically. I'm also an unapologetic carnivore.
Does that make me a hypocrite?

Nope. The only reason why I don't hunt delicious deer is because I am too poor a shot to ensure they die quickly and with a minimum of pain. You can respect the animal's life and still eat it, use every feasible part of its' body and then in return arrange for your remains to feed other animals. That's an American value that precedes European settlement, in fact.


That's why The Lord invented fishing.

Thats so funny. You do realize that humans are (currently) the top of the food chain, don't you? You also know that humans eat meat because a vegetarian diet alone is not adequate to provide a health amount of energy to power a human brain, don't you? Oh you don't? Well carry on then.

I must be a hypocrite because I claim to be concerned about the environment even though my main mode of transport is a motorcycle. Due to less strict emissions standards, motorcycles spew more pollutants per mile than cars despite consuming less fuel per mile.
