I already mentioned in another thread I have -0 interest in plays or movies that reimagine historical figures as POC. Whatever floats your boat I say .I'm no fan of Duran Duran either so it's just a preference on my oart. But I do think it's in poor taste to use other people's time and money -- the paying customers at the Hamilton play -- to virtue signal and rant at an elected official from the stage. Had I been there and paid several hundred dollars to see the play I would have demanded a refund.

Now the moron actor has been Twitterized by his own misogyny and racism. He is clearly, by his own words and implied deeds, in no position to lecture any single human being on the subject of respect and prejudice. I truly hope this guy gets sued by about a dozen "ho's" for getting them drunk and raping them.

I don't have to like Mike Pence to hate this dumb fuck.

I'm not sure whether it is ok to rant against (1) unelected officials or (2) persons who aren't officials.

Sullivan v. NY Times (1964) -- anyone who becomes a public FIGURE through voluntary action loses much of the protection afforded victims of slander and libel. So yep, rip into both of 'em.

He should have said "we are the diverse (and somewhat rapey) America" in his little speech.

Also, why is this still news? Obama got heckled during the state of the union by a congressman, but this is a breach of etiquette? Theater isn't a safe space. (I wish that was a lulz-tweet, but alas, we have no troller-in-chief.)

I just want to jump in and say I can't wait to see Hamilton, it will probably be the most amazing performance I've ever seen, the re-imagined cast is cool, and I found a way to get around the $400 ticket price.

He got banned? That's like a ray of light in a dark, dark world.

Oh, not rapey. But certainly objectifying. "I hear a comment I don't like, I am gonna bang a white woman as payback?" That's the thought process of the enlightened?

He did not, I don't think. Just stopped posting after he got "unjustly" suspended for cp and asking if it was acceptable. In the moderation thread. Because, like, it's Gary.

Note the careful insulation offered. He's heard that 'fake news' is a thing now, so he's trying to protect himself by saying it doesn't matter whether it's bullshit because... the MSM sucks, I guess?

I'm still confused. Does it have something to do with karma? And, do you have to be down with it like OPP?

If I'd remembered myself I'd tell you, dunno why they're being coy, unless it's like Fight club.

Has nothing to do with the OP though.
