All Or Nothing: DEADLINE's Cynical Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott Take-Down Targets The Wrong Enemy Comments (0)

Sultan-of-bruneiThe Sultan of Brunei is far right...literally and figuratively.

Daphne Richards, once a full-time manager at Chik-fil-A, was demoted and took a pay cut after a leave for a double mastectomy. The company defended its decision by saying they actually punished her for “poor performance and out of concern she wouldn't be able to handle the work load.”

Maybe not necessarily in that order, huh?

So if you didn't already hate patronizing Chik-fil-A for its corporate anti-gay stance or its ultra-conservative deference to the Bible, you might be forgiven if you decided not to eat there after hearing about this unfair action.

But you wouldn't be forgiven by Deadline. According to the popular movie-biz site, you'd just be a wide-eyed optimist at best or a hypocritical “shillbilly” at worst if you boycotted Chik-fil-A but still ate at a restaurant that has also potentially or demonstrably done something with which you disagree: Deadline has taken the stance that boycotting the Beverly Hills Hotel due to its ownership by the Sultan of Brunei—who has announced the death penalty for homosexuality in his country beginning in 2016—is logically indefensible, and rather than stopping there, an article on the site goes on to personally attack some of the boycott's most high-profile proponents as hypocrites.

In the piece by David L. Robb, entitled “Beverly Shillbillies: Hollywood Hypocrites Shun Hotels While Hawking Wares To Rights Abusers,” a laundry list of instances is provided to show how some of the famous faces involved in the boycott of the hotel are happily doing business with other, similarly despicable entities:

Lady Gaga's open letter to Kelly Osbourne is pretty sanctimonious; I don't think I can handle adults referring to bullying as it pertains to other adults anymore. Even if I accept that adults can bully adults, Gaga says she's against it but engages in it, and in fact is engaging in it by Kelly-osbourne-skinny-but-still-called-fat-fabulous-ukwriting an open letter to Kelly Osbourne, who is a paean compared to Gaga with her gigantic following.

I do not like Sharon Osbourne. I'm not exactly wild about Kelly, either. And I think it's fair to point out that all these fashion shows are just grown-up versions of bullying, which must be an odd message that kids receive when told it's always wrong to act that way, and then seeing stuff like this.

But Gaga's approach is all wrong, unnecessarily public and smacks of a Christ complex.

I haven't written her off or anything, I'm just turned off by this letter, as I was by her bizarre melt-down letter of a few months back.

It's so ironic that the slogan of the new talk show The Talk is "Keeping it Real" considering this badly PhotoShopped ad that appears to consist of put-together, brusquely retouched women, a few of whom have retouched themselves with scalpels and needles.

The (Not A) Thin Man Comments (0)

Untitled4
From People (March 22, 2010), Cyndi Lauper partly redeems herself in my eyes for competing on Celebrity Apprentice (does anyone doubt Sharon Osbourne is the preordained winner?) by saying of Donald Trump's fat-fueled feud with Rosie O'Donnell: 

"He himself is not a thin man."

Any other negative things she can say about Trump or mayhem she can cause to that abysmal man/show would be much appreciate.
