Cheron: 9 Celebrity hypocrites that Fox News doesn't like. You could only think of 9

/I'm rubber your glue... Fox News the whinny kid on the play ground


This is exactly what I take away from this slideshow, especially once I got to NPH.

Cletus C.: Paris Hilton failing to vote is not hypocrisy, it's public service.


Fox News could have used a more recent example: Nickie Minaj, who encouraged young people to vote despite not being registered to vote herself.

oh wait, she also endorsed Romney, she's not going to appear here.
 
2013-01-14 01:18:55 PM  
They shoulda just called it "gays and coloreds we don't like, with beautiful women who would never give us the time of day".

Dicks.

Oh, and including Lady Gaga is equal to going after low-hanging fruit. WAAAAY too easy.

I'm guessing you must argue with yourself a lot.

Paris Hilton? Doctor Phil? fox news sure has a liberal definition of the term "celebrity", doesn't it?

Of course, compared to such luminaries as ted nugent, chuck norris, and victoria jackson, I suppose Paris and Phil really are celebs.

EyeballKid: SUPPORTS THE MILITARY
[wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net image 625x417]
SHAT HIMSELF TO GET OUT OF 'NAM


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.

Wow, I thought I was reading Fark, but it turns out I was reading an old STAR magazine.


Thanks for the up-to-the-minute emptyheaded celebrity fluff piece!

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.
 
2013-01-14 02:04:02 PM  

fisker: 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.



Martin Sherman played the voice of Thomas the Tank Engine, but rumor has it that he's not actually a locomotive at all!  Damned hypocrite.

Al Gore
The former VP and clean energy enthusiast recently closed a deal to sell his Current TV network to fossil-fuel financed Al-Jazeera. How does that work?


Wow, so suddenly they're anti-oil?

I agree with the other posters, this list is nothing but derp. Hell, I've only made it to Gore, and I've figured this out. It IS just a list of some of the people Fox doesn't like.

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


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.

El_Frijole_Blanco: They also left out Meatloaf and Clint Eastwood


What did they do that was noteworthy? Did the Loaf publicly state the 2 out of 3 is actually bad?
 
2013-01-14 02:28:18 PM  

Brick-House: The thing is, Rush is the first person who will tell you he farked up and got treatment.


So you totally miss the point in style... Rush said that if they are breaking the law they should be 'committed and sent up the river'. What he DIDN'T say is that they should admit they farked up and get treatment. If he was pushing the idea of HELPING drug abusers, that would be different.

Mikey1969: El_Frijole_Blanco: They also left out Meatloaf and Clint Eastwood

He said that he would do anything for love, but wouldn't do that. Once you announce that you would do "anything", "that" has to be on the table. Hypocrisy!

Brick-House: MadAzza: Brick-House: jaytkay: Brick-House: The thing is, Rush is the first person who will tell you he farked up and got treatment.

Rush Limbaugh: - "if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."Limbaugh

Los Angeles Times - April 29, 2006 - "Limbaugh Deal Avoids Drug Prosecution, Defense Says"

MY GOD!!! Rush Limbaugh is the only person ever to avoid jail by making a deal to get treatment for drug abuse.

Hey, dumbass, see the bolded part up there? Yeah. That.

Damn, I already said you won. Now would you please be a good lib and go stand by some stairs... in fact, at the up of a upward moving escalator would be even better.


In other words, you're admitting that the actual facts are against you? You shouldn't be such a baby when you're called out for your idiocy. Instead, you should admit that you farked up and get treatment
 
2013-01-14 02:33:11 PM  

jst3p: Madbassist1: Brick-House: Celeb's on the other hand, think they're important and know more then us just because of their celebrity. So just shut up and do as they tell us not as we see them doing, they are celebrities after all worthy of our worship.

I honestly do not think this is true. I think it is part of the image that is conveyed to the idiot public that consumes celeb bull shiat (TMZ, ET,  etc.) but I do not think they themselves buy their own hype...usually.

I disagree, I think they do believe their own hype because generally the wealthy think that by virtue of their wealth they are better than most people. Celebs have the added bonus of millions of random strangers giving them attention. I


I think a lot of it has to do with the culture in and around Hollywood, CA, as well. (Just what I've heard.)

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.
 
2013-01-14 02:34:59 PM  

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!


I'm eagerly awaiting the faux-outrage over the hidden liberal plots in The Hobbit because the dragon's name rhymes with smog.

They are using social media to promote their professional lives. They have mentioned something ABOUT their personal life, but they are asking to quit getting hounded/attacked/stalked, etc when they are trying to live their private lives. Coming out is NOT the same as saying "Hey paparazzi! Come root through my garbage, ambush me outside the mall, and print lies about me.".

One that comes to mind that they missed is the pro-windpower people who nixed the offshore wind farm because it would spoil the view from their vacation homes.

Your level of potential hypocrisy is compounded by your level of celebrity...and celebrities tend to be bigger hypocrites than anyone else. Yes, even more than political commentators because at least they feel the need to be consistent. Celebrities justify everything they do under the guise of "It's jsut my job, I'm not really that way" kind of like nazi soldiers.

styckx: That list was awful.. Every point that made was derpy as hell.


Your full of it, some pretty good points were made and if this was any other news source besides Fox you have have no problem with the content of this article. (unless you're white-knighting Paris Hilton, if that case she's all yours stud)

Everybody is a hypocrite.

I have chosen to set reasonable limits to my professional hypocrisy, and choose not to cross those limits. When my limits have been pushed, I have chosen to change professions. Yes, I am fortunate, not everybody can make those decisions easily

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.
