"omg guys nash grier apologized forgive him already stop being so sensitive"
one of nash grier’s “apologies” for a homophobic tweet he made was “my friend took my phone”
every other time was “sorry if i offended you” which isn’t an apology he’s just mad he caught called out on his sexism, racism, and homophobia
and to my knowledge he has yet to apologize for his racist vine towards the asain community (the one where he dropped a spoon and said it was the name of an asain person)
maybe instead of saying “stop being so sensitive” you should learn why minority communities are offended by his “jokes,” and instead of saying “he already apologized” you should learn what a real apology looks like
art buddies are sO IMPORTANT
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
We had an intense game of fetch today.
He was huffing and puffing and I had to take a photo!
