Celebrities who deserve firing: Kristen Doute and many more
With the tragic death of George Floyd and the following protests, many new conversations are being started about race and how to treat people. With callouts coming out into the open, more celebrities have been facing some heat online.
Stories of racist actions and other atrocious behavior have surfaced about a number of celebrities. Many extremely popular celebrities have now been ousted, forced to deal with the repercussions. These celebrities should be recognized for their ugly nature and deserve to be fired for their outrageous behavior.
Kristin Doute & Stassi Schroeder
Kristin Doute & Stassi Schroeder have recently been fired from Vanderpump Rules due to their racist actions towards Faith Stowers, a sporadic guest on the show. Stowers spoke up about the 2018 incident, explaining how Schroeder & Doute called the police to report her for crimes that she didn’t commit. Stowers writes:
“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people. And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview.”
Clearly think that this was some kind of humorous stunt, Doute tweeted, “hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar? someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there.” While Doute & Schroeder issued apologies for their actions, their despicably racist actions made them lose their jobs. Good riddance.
Now a popular icon from her overwhelmingly successful Harry Potter series, JK Rowling needs to step down. It’s clear she loves to be in the limelight, spouting her fake, basic white feminist perspective. It’s hard to keep track of everything she’s done wrong at this point but here’s a summary.
Rowling has insisted on inserting marginalized identities into her novels that weren’t there when they first came out. She has supported transphobic tweets, alluding that she could be a turf. Not to mention, her newest additions to the Harry Potter universe in America demonstrate cultural theft & misrepresentation of Native American religion.
If she could be fired from being a writer she should be. Publishers should be rejecting her at this point. It’s okay to like Harry Potter – but recognize the wrongs. Rowling has lost her touch and has let down many of her fans.
Lea Michele, Rachel Berry on Glee, has been facing quite a bit of heat lately for her record of being a complete monster to work with – or even to meet. People have been calling her out on twitter, reciting incidents when Michele had been racist, transphobic, & a total nightmare.
Samantha Ware, the actress who played Jane Hayward on Glee’s final season shared her terrible experience with Lea Michele, saying that Michele told her she’d “sh!* in [her] wig” and was guilty of other “traumatic microaggressions.” Similarly, trans model Plastic Martyr said that Michele openly shamed her for being in a woman’s bathroom at an Emmys ceremony.
There are countless more stories popping up about Michele, accusing her of being a complete diva – one even said she was a “cancer on humanity.” Even her Glee costar Heather Morris spoke out about her saying she was very “unpleasant to work with.” Not sure if there’s a way to really “fire” Michele because at this point, her career is pretty much over already.
Famous singer & songwriter, John Mayer is actually the scum of this earth. Not only has he made some really sketchy comments about race, he’s also flippant about how many women he’s slept with.
Mayer has claimed black people love him and that he has a “hood pass.” He even called his dick a “white supremacist.” Just listen to how despicable he sounds: “Someone asked me the other day, ‘What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” Mayer goes on to explain more about a “hood pass” saying, “… it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n—-r pass.”
A vicious braggart, Mayer speaks about all the women he slept with since breaking up with Jennifer Aniston, saying “four or five. No more. But even if I said 12, that’s a reasonable number. So is 15. Here’s the thing: I get less ass now than I did when I was in a local band. Because now I don’t like jumping through hoops.” Later, Mayer continues, saying “there have probably been days when I saw 300 vaginas before I got out of bed.”
Why isn’t Mayer getting banned right now? More people should be flaming about how awful he is. Sexist & racist, there should be a boycott on John Mayer’s music.
MJ is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. But he’s also an awful person. Jordan has been accused of belittling & assaulting teammates, intimidating his coach, & more. In fact, his coach, Charles Barkley told a story on Oprah about Jordan being mean to a homeless man.
Barkley said when he & Jordan came across a homeless man begging for change, Jordan stopped Barkley from giving money to the man and said, “If he’s able to say ‘Can I have $10?’ he can say ‘Welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order?’”
Despite being right next to Barkley when he said this, Jordan doesn’t deny his actions. This viciously mean and classist remark should have destroyed his career right there. Jordan is walking around with millions and won’t give anything to a man in need? We don’t care how talented he is, Jordan shouldn’t be an icon if he’s this much of an asshole.
