I don't get why people biatch when celebrities share their feelings and opinions on something like this, it's literally what we do all farking day on Fark. SO why do WE get to voice our opinions, but not celebrities? More double standards? Yeah, must be.

That.  Apparently, the opinions of an athlete or actor should just be dismissed out of hand, but the opinions a truck driver are automatically assumed to be valid.

That site won't let me take a screengrab, that's new....


Anyway I was going to clip out the quote of John Boyega saying he might not have a career after this. I thought he already gave Hollywood the middle finger?

I'd be a lot happier if writers, producers, and actors who make fawning movies & TV shows about the police would reconsider what they're doing.

Acting a lot better than most of them.

I just pray Kim Kardashian can weigh in!!!  Her and Kanye usually have the most thoughtful responses.

Double standard?
You might as well be saying the king should have an opinion too?
The king can eat a cock.
The subjects have the power.
The king is just some idiot that got lucky.
His opinions can rot in hell.
The king can be replaced with a gorilla or an orangutan according to Bill Maher.

Fight the power.
Power to the people.

It's considered poor form to smart your own posts.

Apply the same thought to the hollywoodians that cry about guns and gun violence then star in movies that glorify guns.  "BUT THEY'RE PLAYING A CHARACTER HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE THE DIFFERENCE."

They make what sells.
So that's on the public at large.
Also, the only market section they care about is mostly white and mostly establishment.

So you're saying fantasy shouldn't exist?
or are you saying depicting fantastical characters means you can't have a opinion different than the character?

WTF?

I'm fine with celebrities speaking out, as long as there is some thought and knowledge in what they say. Robert DeNero saying fark Trump at the academy awards didn't impress me. SA Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich gave his thoughts and showed knowledge of the topics he was discussing. That I can appreciate.

You're getting out the fiddle for the poor celebrity who can't express an opinion?  Seriously?  Dafuq?

The minute an actor or actress wants to say something about national policy, the media can't help fall over themselves to print such a statement.  Even if said person never held a normal regular job in their entire life and their only claim to fame is having some hit songs or being in a popular TV show.

You, me?  We want to express an opinion?  Who gives a fark?

There is no double standard.

What racists say: Celebrities should STFU

What they mean: Celebrities should STFU unless their views agree with my own

I think he's saying you can't play a rapist, without being one.

It happens because the Lame Ass Media Execs think that athletes will have some sway over our tiny ass little feelings and you will be more likely to listen to the Lame Athletic Man's Expressions written by the Lame Ass Media Execs than  Chrisy Cuomo or Rach Maddow.

Did you have a stroke or something? This makes less sense than "no" sense.

Like Hollywood is full of Klan members driving home with their cars festooned with MAGA and confederate flag stickers.

Bravery with Hollywood would be to be a social conservative.  Anti-abortion, roll back gay rights etc. That'd fark your career.

Personally, I don't want any more John Boyega because I just don't rate the guy. He's OK but he doesn't have great acting chops, nor does he have much screen presence.

Maybe it would help more if they made another compilation video singing a dumbass John Lennon song.  That is always useful. I reccomend "give peace a chance".  Because we just haven't considered peace yet.
