Did you hear about how awesome/terrible/funny/racist/sexist the Oscars was this year? OMG it was so great/annoying/not funny.
Wah wah wah. That’s all i hear from people who talk about award shows. Some people don’t realize the entire award show industry is self serving. And the ones that get pissed off at how self serving award shows are need to find a hobby or a blog.
Besides for all of the complaints about sexism and Seth Macfarlane, we had a Jew joke. Dear God a Jew joke.
The ADL came out with a statement that pretty much said (I’m paraphrasing):
Abe Foxman Jew. Abe Foxman no like talking teddy bear sketch. Jews not very powerful in Hollywood. So apologize to all Jews of Hollywood if you ever want to work again.
Or if you’re wondering what he really said:
While we have come to expect inappropriate “Jews control Hollywood” jokes from Seth MacFarlane, what he did at the Oscars was offensive and not remotely funny. It only reinforces stereotypes which legitimize anti-Semitism. It is sad and disheartening that the Oscars awards show sought to use anti-Jewish stereotypes for laughs.
For the insiders at the Oscars this kind of joke is obviously not taken seriously. But when one considers the global audience of the Oscars of upwards of two billion people, including many who know little or nothing about Hollywood or the falsity of such Jewish stereotypes, there’s a much higher potential for the ‘Jews control Hollywood’ myth to be accepted as fact.
We wish that Mr. MacFarlane and the Academy Awards producers had shown greater sensitivity and decided against airing a sketch that so reinforces the age-old canard about Jewish control of the film industry.”
A 9 year old girl was just a cunt and you pick to defend the Hollywood elites against the notion that Jews control Hollywood? Really.
Stop being such buzzkill buzzkillingtons. Does the ADL actually like anything? Do they like comedy at all? Is there a list of ADL approved jokes? I’m tired of seeing the ADL take control of a conversation. If someone wants to make a Hitler joke, let them. If someone wants to make a joke about Jews controlling Hollywood, go right ahead. Stop trying to kill everyone’s fun, Abe. We heard you hate Hollywood Jew jokes 100 years ago. You don’t need to keep reminding us every month.
