Stephen King Savaged by ‘Woke’ Mob For Saying Art Should be Judged on Quality, Not “Diversity”

How dare he?

Published

Author Stephen King is facing potential cancellation from the ‘woke’ mob after he responded to the Oscar nominations by saying art should be judged on quality, not the “diversity” of its creators.

King was responding to controversy surrounding the Oscar nominations being too “white” and too “male”.

Vogue reported that the choices were “a pretty poor showing for…well, anyone other than straight white men,” complaining that no females were nominated for best director and “zero performers of color were nominated in the best supporting actor and best supporting actress categories.”

King responded on Twitter by daring to suggest that potential winners should be judged on their merits and not their genitalia or skin color.

“As a writer, I am allowed to nominate in just 3 categories: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Screenplay,” tweeted King.

“For me, the diversity issue–as it applies to individual actors and directors, anyway–did not come up. That said…I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong,” he added.

For daring to suggest that movies should be judged solely on whether they are good or not, King faced an immediate backlash from ‘woke’ Twitter users.

“When films created by people of color, irrespective of quality, constantly get overlooked by institutions that are predominately comprised of white men, there is an implicit bias at work here,” responded Morgan Jerkins.

“Sir, respectfully saying you as a white man can’t really say that. You had more advantages and opportunities than a person of color would have. They have been wrongfully held back in so many ways just because of their color skin,” tweeted David Weissman.

“With all due respect, I’m afraid that a meritocracy could work only if the game weren’t rigged,” responded Laura Lippman.

“That is like saying “I don’t see color” and as problematic,” lectured another user.

The backlash from the woke mob is particularly funny given that King panders to them 99% of the time with his endless anti-Trump diatribes.

But 99% is not enough – unless you show flawless devotion to the cult – you will be cancelled.

Ari Shaffir on Kobe Bryant’s Death: “Hollywood Liberals Enjoy Rooting For the Lakers More Than They Dislike Rape”

Comedian’s comments spark outrage.

Published

on

Comedian Ari Shaffir has stoked controversy after he reacted to the death of Kobe Bryant by tweeting, “Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape.”

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter were among nine people tragically killed when a helicopter crashed in California in foggy weather yesterday.

While most people responded by celebrating Bryant’s basketball career, Shaffir took to Twitter to call out “Hollywood liberals” for glamorizing Bryant despite allegations that he raped a 19-year-old girl.

The 19-year-old hotel employee claimed Bryant raped her in the summer of 2003 but the case was later dropped after the accuser refused to testify at the trial.

Bryant apologized to the girl but said he believed the encounter to be consensual and later settled with her in a separate civil lawsuit.

“Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late today,” tweeted Shaffir. “He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day! #Fuckthelakers.”

In a separate video, Shaffir stated, “A guy who got away with rape got his today, Kobe Bryant is gone!”

The comedian’s comments provoked the fury of others on Twitter.

“He’s got 4 kids man. It’s one thing to go dark if it’s genuinely funny, but this is just horrible. Like honestly how little empathy do you have?” asked one.

“That rape allegation never added up to anything, kinda like your shit comedy career,” added another.

“I’m a conservative, and this is too far, even for you. I hope you never get another gig. You’re a terrible person,” tweeted another.

However, Shaffir was by no means alone in the manner of his response. Numerous other prominent Twitter personalities and commentators reacted to Bryant’s death by bringing up the rape allegations against him.

Shaffir later claimed “I was hacked,” in what was obviously a sarcastic tweet.

Conor McGregor Attacked by ‘Woke’ Outrage Mob For Calling Trump “Phenomenal”

How dare he?

Published

on

Conor McGregor was savaged by the ‘woke’ Twitter outrage mob after he dared to say that President Trump was doing a “phenomenal” job.

“Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA (goat). Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible,” tweeted the MMA star.

Fresh off his 40 second victory over Donald Cerrone, McGregor faced significantly stiffer opposition from Twitter’s perpetually outraged army of witchfinder generals, who tore into him for, God forbid, expressing diversity of opinion.

“Just got off the McGregor bus, I was a huge fan until this tweet, I’m sure this will cost you more fans than any fight you lose,” tweeted one person with the user name ‘flush the orange turd’.

A deluge of other “Orange Man Bad!” simpletons weighed in with their own entirely predictable NPC comments.

“These are the words of a man who has been hit in the head many, many, many times,” said one blue check mark.

“Please tell me you got fookin hacked,” added another.

Another person accused both Trump and McGregor of being…wait for it…”racists”. An incredibly novel insight, I’m sure you’ll agree.

“Told y’all this guy Conor was a racist during the Mayweather promotion tour,” tweeted another. “Those monkey comments came from his soul/core!”

Despite the criticism, there were many other tweets in praise of McGregor.
