And you thought Spike Lee had established an unapproachable low point in celebrity, self-indulgent, arrogant irresponsibility by trying to tweet George Zimmerman’s address (all the better to get him killed), and inadvertently siccing the sickos on an elderly Florida couple who were minding their own business? How charmingly naive of you! For remember, no matter how ignorant and unethical a celebrity may be, there are always, always, bigger, more ethically clueless jerks and fools with an entry in Wikipedia and an itch to get back in the limelight.
A celebrity like…Roseanne Barr! She lapped Spike’s mean-spirited Twitter idiocy in his own chosen medium by…
- AFTER Lee’s well-publicized tweet and the negative reaction to them, tweeting the address of Zimmerman’s parents to her 100,000, presumably brain-dead and ethics-free Twitter followers…
- Saying later that she did it to let people know “that no one can hide anymore,” as if that’s some kind of a public service announcement, then
- Took down the tweet after the reaction from her fans was overwhelmingly negative, making some lame explanation that she didn’t understand that “it was private” (the address? Twitter?)
- Following this with a tweet saying that “vigilantism” killed Trayvon, and she doesn’t support that (Roseanne has no idea what killed Trayvon, other than a bullet), and then, this..
Yes, that makes sense, you pathetic attention addict…law enforcement should base its decisions on when to arrest on extortion and threats of violence from the enraged followers of a washed-up sitcom queen.
I’m not going to get fooled and declare this to be as low as Hollywood can go as it races to disgrace itself on this issue, just as I won’t declare that Rep. Bobby Rush wrapped up the irresponsible elected official title with his hoodie stunt on the House floor yesterday.
But I am going to have to stock up on Pepto Bismol while I wait for Roseanne’s challenger.
