what did Kanye do?

I hope you are simply uninformed and legit didn't know. To make a very long story short he went on a ton of antisemitic rants. I don't need to get into details.

nono I loveeeee Kanye, been a fan of him literally my whole life. I know pretty much every public detail ab him. I just meant like- I was wondering why that person specifically didn't like him

by Anonymous 8 months ago

Well that's why a lot of people don't like him including me

It's also fair to enjoy the work of an artist without having to know every detail of their private life.

Then you would have to feel the same about every and any person then. If you do, that's fine but I think most wouldn't see it that way.

I know this is a dumb edgy take, but... who cares? I've never met this celebrity, I'll never meet them, in what scenario would I possibly care what happens to them in their life?

This. I'm in entertainment (lighting tech/stage management) & have met plenty of very famous people. By and large, they're just like the rest of us - a cross section of the good, the bad, and the ugly. I've never pedestalized any of them. Most of them are pretty normal if you treat them like people & not be sucky-uppy or gushy. Some are more intense in their preferences & have clauses in their riders about how other players/production staff should/should not approach and/or address them. Some are just incredibly arrogant & to be avoided, if possible. To me, they aren't any more special than anyone else on the show. It's a team effort to make a great production. So, I'm with you. When the curtain falls, they're just people I work with.

I don't care. I pay taxes, which goes to much worse people's cars and luxuries probably. US citizens literally finance child abusers by their taxes. I don't think some bad person gaining 0.01 cent from you means anything in the grand scheme.

You're not wrong, that's exactly where your taxes go. The People need something to be angry at, though. Directing the anger of civilians at celebrities keeps the People from noticing the ways they're being screwed over every day. We've only got so much anger and emotional bandwidth, so give us something to be indignant about and we'll shut up about the atrocities that follow.

To a certain degree you are right. How someone treats people around them is a strong indicator of what type of character they have. A person who is abusive towards everyone (partner, children, co-workers, people they hired to take care of ) doesn't deserve anyone's support. A good indicator of this would be a person fires people at the drop of a hat or people don't want to work with this person and this includes other celebs. A person who has an assistant for a very long time or whose employees don't walk out on this generally has good character.

Is it fair to judge them only based off their public appearances?

by Anonymous 8 months ago

The reason it's not fair is not because one wishes to condone immoral behavior, but because you don't get an unbiased picture of what goes on in other people's lives, least of all celebrities. The human sewage who perpetuate the gossip industry have zero loyalty to the full finding of fact, or the portrayal of an unbiased narrative, which each party has an opportunity to defend themselves. I'm confident that if every person had to withstand the type of scrutiny directed at famous celebrities, they would fare no better than the ones you see featured on TMZ, quite the reverse. As the routine exposés of sanctimonious moral hectorers show, everyone has a dark side, we're all selfish, hypocritical, and depraved when the incentives and opportunities match our desires.

How is this unpopular? Part of being a celeb is that millions of people are constantly making judgements about your private life.

by Anonymous 8 months ago

Because they're human beings capable of human mistakes. When Jim Bob gets arrested for a DUI no one bat's an eye, but when a celebrity does it their are scum of the earth.

Who forms opinions about celebrities?

i really don't care what they do in their private life

"It's totally fair to form judgement on a celebrity based on the thing media tells you about them" FTFY

I enjoy Metallica. Theoretically, if one of the band members were outright Trump supporter, I would still listen to the music. Honestly, I can say the same about James Woods. I'm not a delicate pansy, like ex-Dixie Chicks fans. I can separate the art from artist. Same goes for other things, like Kevin Spacey movies. Or Ezra (Flash) Miller(?).

That's fine it's all preferce but also don't do it where it's against tho it's your opinion

by Anonymous 8 months ago

This is a mainstream opinion. Audiences will happily cancel celebrities based on misgivings in their private lives.

That's all fine, just don't attack me if I don't care

Counterpoint: Many celebrities have open relationships. They are incredibly wealthy and with their partners because they want to be (unlike many couples who have kids and literally can't afford to split up even if they wanted to). And they sometimes spend half the year or more apart from their spouses....But they can't say they're in an open relationship publicly if they are caught "Cheating"--Which is a term the media will use if they get pics or video. We may be getting close to a point where a celebrity couple can admit they're in an open relationship--but until now, its mainly been viewed as easier to just take the L and be called a cheater and apologize than to say "My wife gave me permission to have sex with her and sometimes my wife has sex with her too." My point here is you really don't know what's going on inside their private lives, even if they are interviewed about it.

Will Smith... Is that you?

by Anonymous 8 months ago

Maybe because they're good at what they do! There are extreme situations such as SA & Murder... But for the most part I couldn't disagree with you more... I don't have to align with an artist politically or morally necessarily to enjoy their talent. For the most part their private life is none of my business.

by Anonymous 8 months ago

If we avoided or discarded every artist or entertainer who's morals didn't align with ours, we'd be starving for entertainment and staring at a blank screen...

If they make portions of their life public, they're open to criticism just like anyone else. Don't want your private life talked about? Don't share it on social media.
