5. Disgusting and Racist Ellen DeGeneres
It’s hard to imagine a more sacred icon of the LGBT movement in Hollywood then Ellen. As one of the first celebrities to “come out”, she has been heralded for over two decades now, as inspiring young people worldwide to be comfortable with their sexual orientation.
You would think this alone would forever earn her a spot on the liberal approval list, but as Ellen and the others on this list learned the hard way it only ever takes the slightest bit of wrong-think, to have the mob turn on you.
So what was Ellen’s small mistake? In her case simply posting this badly photoshopped picture to her twitter page in hopes of a cheap laugh.
Keep in mind this is a women who has publicly stated the President is not welcome on her show as “He’s against everything that I stand for.” (Not that she had a problem years ago when she filmed a Celebrity Apprentice related segment for her show with him.) But all her Trump hate pandering and long history as an icon of social justice equality didn’t protect her from the outrage this one bad joke stirred up.
For a time Ellen tried to just ignore the controversy, but that only seemed to make things worse.
Which eventually led even an established liberal media darling like Ellen to feel the need to formally go on record as, not being a racist. Which of course anyone with even the slightest bit of common sense already knew, and should never have had needed stating.
4. Homophobic, Transphobic, Misogynistic Dave Chappelle
Recently comedian Dave Chappelle, attempted a comeback of sorts with a brand new special that premiered on Netflix. What Dave didn’t expect is that in the years since he stopped making his hit TV show, the SJW left had arisen and dictated that most things are now off limits in comedy. So when Dave came back, with the same liberal slanted humor that got him many laughs a decade ago. He must have been surprised when this time he was greeted with news articles like this.
The outrage reached twitter as well of course,
Some went as far as to suggest that merely watching his special is enough to instantly qualify you as a Transphobe.
Thus far Chappelle himself has not given into the mob and released a formal apology. But perhaps that was because he was too busy formally apologizing for his far greater sin. Daring to suggest on the eve of his inauguration that we should at least “TRY” and give the new President a chance. As part of an 11 minute monologue opening Saturday Night live, that also featured shout outs to groups like Black Lives Matter. The comedian dared to utter the following words, “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance, and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too. Thank you very much.”
While he has seemingly gotten a pass for now on the homophobic humor. Daring to suggest giving a new President the benefit of the doubt, was just too much for the left, who eventually forced the comedian to say,
3. Disgraceful Disrespectful Racist Brat Jennifer Lawrence
She has made political ads supporting Planned Parenthood, penned open letters for Hillary voters, and preached her support for all the general leftist causes. But none of that stopped the SJW’s from abandoning the Hunger Games star, when she dared to rub her butt on a rock. Once again, you just can’t make this stuff up.
While on the set of a Hunger Games film, against the protests of some local Hawaiian crew members, Ms. Lawrence opted to rub her butt on a sacred rock. Here below you can see her share the story on the Graham Norton show.
As soon as this video got out online though, the outrage machine was in full swing quickly.
Not wanting to be left out, the SJW’s on Facebook got in on the fun too.
Even actor Chris Pratt got some hate, merely for his apparent crime of being silent when his co-star shared her story.
Not wanting to risk her image as a stalwart liberal Hollywood starlet, Ms. Lawrence soon took to Facebook herself to apologize for her inappropriate butt rubbings.
2. White Cishet Gross Misogynistic Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans
We already mentioned Chris Pratt having caught some backlash just for being next to Jennifer Lawrence at the wrong moment. But let’s turn now to two of the actor’s fellow Marvel Super Hero Co-Stars. While on the promotional circuit for Captain America: Civil War, the Hawkeye and Captain America actor’s dared in a moment of relaxed levity to call their fellow female Avenger Black Widow a slut and whore.
When asked by a reporter who they thought the character should end up with Jeremy Renner stated “she’s a slut”, which immediately elicited huge laughs from Captain America himself. See the video for yourself below.
As ever the outrage police online were quick to respond.
Unsurprisingly, both actors of course soon issued formal apologies. In a statement released via Entertainment Weekly days later the pair said,
Evans: “Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”
Renner: “I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.”
However in a rare bit of sanity, it would appear that for Jeremy Renner at least, his apology might have just been forced onto him by his Disney-Marvel handlers. As following this written statement he actually appeared on the late night talk show Conan and indicated he was largely unapologetic. In fact he laughed at the fact he got in what he called “internet trouble.”
This too of course resulted in it’s own separate mini controversy with multiple publications calling for his head after Renner had the nerve to double down on the joke about a fictional character.
1. Old White Man Alt-Right Fascist William Shatner
When you say the name William Shatner most people picture this.
But to a Social Justice Warrior this is what image the name brings to mind.
I have opted to end this list with Mr. Shatner, as it’s important to remember not everyone, and not even every liberal always bend the knee to the regressive left. In fact a recurring theme in SJW outrage, is that they tend to clash with the older generation of liberals who aren’t really all that comfortable with their ban happy anti-free speech rhetoric. A prime example of this is William Shatner who has now gone on record multiple times directly calling out the toxic SJW elements on the left.
When Shatner took to twitter and started tweeting about SJW’s, the response was shock and awe from some. How could the hero of the Federation possibly be against social justice? But Shatner, an old actual liberal activist from the 60’s was having none of it.
Keep in mind that this is the man who stared on the first on screen interracial kiss in TV history. A fact some tried to use against him even.
Possibly because unlike the other celebrates on this list, Shatner’s example of wrong-think was an intentional deed and never meant to be a harmless joke. It was for this former Captain of the Enterprise the strongest possible accusations and labels were used against him. Because anyone who actually dares call out the anti free speech practices of the left directly, is almost always instantly branded a Nazi fascist.
Articles were even published on popular websites like Gawker which attempted to use an image of Shatner dressed as a Nazi in Star Trek, to help make his ridiculous point.
Other sites suggested that Shatner’s attack on the worst parts of the regressive left literally “ERASE” his legacy for positive change on Star Trek. Some articles also tried to throw the Alt-Right label at him
Let’s think for a moment how ridiculous it is that, the same man who just a few years ago was tweeting how he was worried by the amount of racist and sexism there was to be found on a site like Reddit, is now being called a Nazi. Just because he is refusing to fully buy into the SJW victim narrative.
Of course the real issue here might just be above all else, that Mr. Shatner has committed the crime of being an older white male.
They may have disowned Kirk, but at least the SJW’s will always have Sulu.
