Stupid Celebrity Tricks

Celebrities are generally uneducated and are largely unintelligent. Most celebrities did not arrive where they are due to their intellects, and looking good in front of a camera does not require that one have but half a brain. Therefore, celebrities should limit their public comments to the realm of that which they know – their latest movies, albums, or other performances.

Tom Cruise, in televised remarks, called psychiatry a “pseudo science” and disputed the value of antidepressant drugs. Remind me again from which university Cruise received his psychiatry degree.

Margaret Cho named her dog after a terrorist, and she said terrorism was “chic.” Cho is no longer funny when she brags about such an asinine, tasteless stunt as naming her mutt after a terrorist. No, murder is not chic, and adulating terrorists is decidedly not admirable.

These are but a few of the more recent examples of celebrities who speak tactlessly about something on which they have no knowledge. I try to refrain from making statements that would be offensive, that would make me look stupid, or that could come back to bite me in the arse. And I do not even have an audience of millions, as our worthless celebrities do have.
