It's like a thousand proud boy twitter bots cried out in joy.

Ellen seems like a really shiatty person. That's a shame.

Did someone make an insensitive joke? Sorry, I was too busy scraping the coronavirus out of my eyeballs while the President steals medical supplies for kickbacks. Didn't catch it.

This is what passes for offensive nowadays? Lighten the fark up, Francis.

I dunno, "everyone in here is gay" could be seen as a thinly-veiled prison rape joke.

Wait, you're telling me a professional comedian tried to make a joke but it wasn't all that funny? I've never seen that happen before.

There are a lot of reports out there that Ellen is a bigly SeeYouNextTuesday in real life, but this uproar is a bit much.

More like house arrest and some people have gilded cages, so work on it some more.
 
2020-04-09 4:51:13 AM  
Having spent a few days in jail myself, I really don't think anyone who spent more than a few months in jail would take any offense to this joke coming from a 130 lb white lesbian.

This is just another example of people taking offense on behalf of other people.

"Woke", a term that originally meant "aware of how invisible structural racism affects everyday life", has quickly morphed in the hands of right-wingers to "lefties complaining about racism", to "lefties complaining about any issue of privilege," to "lefties complaining about literally anything," to now, apparently, "anyone complaining about anything."

People making fun of a rich lady for whining about how tough her cushioned, gold-plated, mansion-dwelling life is? That's not "OMG WOKE", that's what people have been doing -- hell, that's what Fark's been doing -- since the first zero-self-awareness celebrity first opened their mouth to complain about how hard their life is in front of a microphone.

I mean... I think that most people can agree that her comparing waiting this out in her 20+ million dollar compound is probably just not comparable to prison. Am I offended? Nah, but I think it's a pretty stupid comparison.
 
2020-04-09 5:25:25 AM  
Ugh. I am just not wording well today.
 
2020-04-09 5:37:42 AM  
I thought she was a member of the *Can Do No Wrong, Protected Species*.

And thus unassailable.

I could see why people might have been a little miffed when she was palling around with GWB, but this is definitely not in that league.

Paul Hackett: When the "PC police" go after "liberal Hollywood elite", the world has indeed turned "upside down".


If you are pretty liberal , the liberal Hollywood elite are pretty ripe for complaints.  Hollywood liberals love democrats, abortion, gay rights, ACA, etc, but one thing they love above all that is money.  And the industry they work in and love is a mess.  The fricking US military is better racially integrated than Hollywood, the industry is full of people who do anything to not pay taxes and is a text book case of income inequality. Less than 10% of the actors make most of the money and the amount the top stars make in comparison to those who staff the food services on set would embarrass the average CEO.  And then there is the whole worship of rapists like Polanski an Weinstein.

Just wait till we get the riveting report about the tweets about the CNN report on the YouTube comments.  It's turtles all the way down from here.

CNN's website has more clickbait than actual news, they should be embarrassed.

For people who rape?  Yes
For those who enable them and cheer them on, maybe not cancel, but call them out on their BS.  I'll still see their movies, but please spare me from their bizarre moralizing.

What about the slippery rope. You know how those metoo liberalfascists call you rapist when you talk with women

It's tone deaf and stupid, but there are much worse things to be angry about right now.

Which illustrates the folly of the concept from the very first beginnings.

When you make everything about racism, sexism, or whateverism, this is the inevitable result.  You don't get to biatch and moan about other people biatching and moaning when your whole raison d'etre is biatching and moaning.

This is like a kid playing with matches, then claiming he only started a small fire in his bedroom so it's not his fault the house burned down.

"Liberal Hollywood" = "Liberal media"

Things that only exist in  right-wing fantasies.
 
2020-04-09 7:35:43 AM  
I keep getting update emails from my kids school and one said "hope you're enjoying your Corona-cation" which I think is much more offensive.

Not offended enough for me to respond to them about it, but it's still a pretty tacky thing to say.

My issue with Ellen is she looks miserable ALL the time, even when she's laughing.  Her eyes always look sad, and like she was just crying.  Not making a swipe at her appearance, just saying it's hard to enjoy her show when she doesn't look like SHE'S enjoying it

blame talk radio (of all political stripes) and the 24 hour news cycle.  When you have 24 hours to fill you have to talk about something and biatching is something that people love to do.
 
2020-04-09 7:47:57 AM  
Oh and another thing: Ellen is about the furthest one can be from whatever "woke" is being defined here. She's always been what they call a corporate team player, not a loud advocate for anything, one of the "good ones" The pre-murders O.J. Simpson  of the LGBT community.

Not really feeling like "duh, libs, of course we can't ever talk about racism, because otherwise people are mean to Ellen DeGeneres for complaining about being stuck in her mansion" is really the level-headed analysis you think it is.

======================================​================================

Youtube/Instagram/Facebook comments and random people on twitter do not count as real people.  Just like with literally everything else that has supposed 'outrage', you'll know when it's real.  Generally, it isn't.

All that drives the media these days is clicks and views and for whatever reason outrage over outrage is all the rage, so they dig it up wherever they can find it, no matter how manufactured.

On the other hand it's people like Ellen that get our foot in the door. The thin end of the wedge, as it were.

It was a joke. Not sure why that's so difficult for people to understand. She wasn't actually making a comparison, she was making a joke. The punchline is right there in the article.

Whether or not it's funny is a matter of taste, but there should be zero question about whether or not she was even a little bit serious, because the answer is obvious: it was a light-hearted quip and nothing more.

The only tone deaf people here are the ones complaining about this.
