Let’s talk about ‘modet’ working with Woody Allen then donating the salary to #Timesup.
What logic are those people using because I’m so curious to be honest? Works with a rapist and abuser, makes him more powerful, thus he abuses his power and assaults/rapes more women, then they be like, you know what imma donate some money to sexual assault and rape victims…
Selena Gomez did that but did not bother release a statement about the issue, could she be anymore problematic???? Timothee Chalamet too, at the start of his career, and people actually glorified his act. Seriously, why? Is the problem with working with alleged abusers/rapists about the money? Definitely not.
Believe it or not them working with him actually contributed to the problem because it
normalized and ignored his actions even more. The power imbalance is the cause of the
whole issue so guess what, him producing movies and making more money is in fact making him more powerful. Honestly this is the most obvious thing ever. Plus baa what for me is the actual moseeba is that this is what’s public, this is what everyone worldwide is seeing, this is not the whole story. When what’s known is THAT horrible I can’t imagine what more shit is going on…
And personally although I’ve always wholeheartedly hated the idea of celebrities being role models and examples of what we should be because they’re normal people just like us, it is a simple obvious fact that PUBLICLY NORMALIZING rape in the media will lead to
normalizing rape everywhere, not because we are stupid people who copy what’s on TV but because it turns into the norm that the vast majority is being programmed to do.
So honestly it’s never gonna be over with us ‘separating art from people’s actions’. I
personally have always loved Annie Hall before knowing all Woody Allen’s shit, and yes I
never watched it since. And yes I was always a crazy James Franco fan (w my friends
yeshhado) but my opinion about him changed, although his responses to the accusations
were pretty good, but he still took advantage of his 17 year old student so we can’t justify his actions because we like his art.
And you know what, House of Cards was always on my list of series i wanna watch but I’m not planning to do so because Kevin Spacey is a fucking pedophile. Mario Testino too, who’s a very famous fashion photographer was always one of my favorites but now whenever I read his name I feel disgusted and angry. Aziz Ansari who is solid proof of how nice guys are not actually that nice because society’s shit is ingrained in them too, and you guessed that i’m not a fan of him anymore! You are responsible too, liking a photo, sharing a message, watching the movie/series/ad/whatever – you essentially become a part of it.
