Does anyone else think the people who make such a big issue of things like this are the ones being racist if they see a monkey-like pokemon and instantly say that it looks like a person of color? And in all honesty, it took me several seconds to figure out why they were mad at this particular Pokémon episode. Why do people like this assume every reference to people and monkeys is directed at black people? It has always been interesting to me to see people draw the conclusion that anything that deals with a human imitating a monkey is somehow racist.
How are the creators of the episode comparing black people to ape-like Pokémon exactly?
The entire headline can be summed up in a single sentence: “You will like our movies or there will be “consequences.” Well, what can they possibly do? Stop making Star Wars movies? Make good Star Wars movies? Either way, we the fans win I suppose? This just highlights the fucken entitlement of Hollywood, you spent over 4 billion dollars on this franchise and expect to have several blockbusters per year by trying to milk fans like myself. That was not our choice that all falls on Hollywood and its own corporate greed.
Firstly let me get this off my chest, I am so “proud” of everyone whose social media activism helped make this happen. Thanks to all of you of bitched and complained about Scarlett Johansson portraying a trans man. Thanks to you millions of people will now never get to see a top Hollywood star portrayal of a transgender person. The movie in all likelihood will never be made now. Another huge “victory” for social justice! Let’s put this in perspective, they had one of the biggest actors in the world today.
Before I start a big shout out to Forbs and the writer Fruzsina Eordogh who wrote this trash. Actually calling this article trash would be overshooting it. Trash was at least useful at some point in it’s existence, the entire article basically amounts to character assassination and pure insensitivity. And aimed at a man who can no longer defend himself and a family grieving over the loss of a husband and a father. Fuck you Furzina and fuck Forbs for allowing this to be published, you are journalistic vultures, actually, wait to call you vultures would be an insult to actual vultures.
I have had my disagreement with John in the past and he has me blocked on Twitter. And yet it still saddens me to know that he is no longer with us, and I would not wish what he went through on my worst enemy. Having said that I have Total Biscuit to thank for my involvement in #GamerGate and making me aware of the movement, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
Remember our good friend Andrew Dobson? He is well known comic trip creator not for his talent or skills but for his deceitful propaganda. Dobson himself is practically irrelevant these days, and nowhere near as well known as he was a couple of years ago. The last few months some of Dobson’s strips have gone viral including how white nerds hate the Black Panther because they can’t identify with him based on his race. Giving him a new level of attention he hasn’t seen since his days on Deviant Art. This new found fame has served to fuel his already overinflated ego to extreme levels, and he has since started reposting some of his older comics with the intent to keep the focus on him and stir up more controversy. Well, he is at it again, this time having a go at Starwars fans:
