10. 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 all the members of this list have 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 so called great wrongdoing? In her case, simply going for a cheap laugh via posting this image to her official Twitter page.
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.” (This apparently not being the case just a few years earlier when she happily filmed a Celebrity Apprentice related segment for her show with him.) Sadly for Ellen, neither her Anti-Trump pandering or even her long history as a gay rights activist was enough to protect her from the SJW outrage machine.
At first she 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 needed stating.
09. Extremely Bad Sexist Steve Martin
At the end of 2016 actress Carrie Fisher, known to most as Princess Leia passed away. Like many celebrities at the time, actor Steve Martin took to Twitter to express a small message regarding her passing. What the famous comedian probably did not expect was that his funny little joke complimenting the departed star would have him labeled as a sexist almost immediately. In fact the above tweet was considered so bad, it even earned the ire of mainstream press outlet New York Magazine. Who published through their online blog The Cut a piece originally titled, “Steve Martin, This Is a Bad Tribute to Carrie Fisher.” The piece can be seen here, though it’s since been renamed “Carrie Fisher Struggled Against Being a Nerd-Boy Sex Object Her Whole Life”. It’s author even attacked Steve Martin on Twitter himself, as a tool to promote his story.Sadly both Martin’s original tweet, along with the thousands of outraged feminist responses to it are now lost to time. As the actor soon gave into the mob and deleted it. We do know, however, from a few sources that reported on it that it elicited reactions like, “I think she aspired to be something higher than just being pretty” and “How do you want to be remembered?” While compared to some of the other celebrities on this list, the backlash against Martin was somewhat tame all things considered. The tweet though and its subsequent removal actually led directly into another comedian facing a much larger backlash all his own.
08. Trump Voting GamerGater Patton Oswalt
In the wake of Steve Martin pulling down his tweet about Carrie, vocal liberal and Trump bashing comedian Patton Oswalt sent out the following.
Almost instantly Patton’s own highly liberal fan base was up in arms.
The use of the term SJW in particular seeming to trigger a large number of his followers, even causing the dreaded GamerGate label to be tossed in his direction.
To the comedians credit, he’s a rare example that didn’t bow to public pressure and take down the offence which can still be seen here.
07. 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 Mr. Chappelle came back, with the same liberal slanted humor that got him so many laughs a decade ago. He must have been surprised when this time he was greeted with news articles like the following.
The outrage reached Twitter as well of course.
Some went as far as to suggest that merely watching his special was 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 Trump 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 we give a new President the benefit of the doubt initially was seemingly the final straw for his fans. Causing the comedian to predictably backtrack on his former statement.
06. Anti-Islamic Women Hating White Supremacist Richard Dawkins
Taking a sharp turn from comedians we move now to one of the most famous scientists and atheists in the world, Richard Dawkins. Who despite the fact has gone on record many times as describing his own political views as left-leaning. Has managed now multiple times to find himself in hot water with the more regressive elements of his party.
This keeps happening to Dawkins because unlike most younger modern progressives, he remains committed to many classical liberal ideals such as the importance of free speech. This was evident when the famed scientist found himself in particular hot water for posting the following to Twitter. While the image, a parody of Dawkins own famous book The God Delusion, drew the usual SJW outrage all on its own. Things took a turn for the worst when, it was revealed the QR code listed in the image led to the Neo-Nazi slogan The Fourteen Words. While obviously Dawkins was not aware of this and took the post down after being informed, this was not enough for some people. Many then accusing Dawkins of sharing a Nazi sense of humor.
Other’s were still busy being outraged over the parody book itself.
It’s worth noting that Dawkins has made far more serious enemies for his comments over the years than just a few keyboard warriors. With his criticism of both radical Feminism and Islam over the years having earned him lots of bad press from certain circles. Including being named the third most sexist man of the year by the Violence Against Women Organization.
In fact he was recently removed as the keynote speaker for the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism, when he retweeted the following video along with the words. “Obviously doesn’t apply to vast majority of feminists, among whom I consider myself. But the minority are pernicious.”
Most recently Dawkins was De-Platformed by Berkeley California radio station KPFA, after they learned he had a history of offensives tweets about Islam. Boldly Dawkins responded to the cancelled interview with this statement,
“I have indeed strongly condemned the misogyny, homophobia, and violence of Islamism, of which Muslims — particularly Muslim women — are the prime victims. I make no apologies for denouncing those oppressive cruelties, and I will continue to do so.”
05. 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 Social Justice brigade from abandoning the Hunger Games star, when she dared to rub her butt on a rock. Yes, you read that right. Ms. Lawrence got in trouble for a butt rub gone wrong.
Apparently while on the set of a Hunger Games film and against the protests of some local Hawaiian crew members, the actress opted to rub her butt on a sacred rock. She shared the story herself 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, those 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 the perfect liberal Hollywood starlet, Ms. Lawrence soon took to Facebook herself to apologize for her inappropriate butt rubbings.
04. Old Fascist Alt-Right White Man William Shatner
When you say the name William Shatner most people picture this.
But to a Social Justice Warrior this is what the name brings to mind.
Last year Shatner took to Twitter and starting expressing his displeasure with modern day SJW types. The response was nothing short of shock and awe from the many who couldn’t wrap their heads around the idea, that the hero of the Federation wasn’t on their side. But Shatner, an old liberal activist from the 60’s was having none of it.
Keep in mind that this is the man who participated in the first on screen interracial kiss in TV history. A fact some tried to use against him even.
Possibly because unlike the other celebrities on this list, Shatner’s example of wrong-think was an intentional deed and never meant to be a harmless joke. Some of the harshest criticism on this list were made against the former Captain of the Enterprise. It would seem in these times that anyone who actually dares call out the anti free speech practices of the left, is almost always instantly branded a Nazi fascist for their efforts.
Entire hit piece articles were even published on popular websites like Gawker in response. With some even going so far as to use an image of Shatner dressed as a Nazi in Star Trek, to help make their 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. Still other articles 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 sexist content could be found on Reddit, is now being called a Nazi. All this, only because he has refused 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 ultimate crime of being an older white male.
03. Racist Cultural Appropriator Katy Perry
Next up we have Katy Perry, pop star extraordinaire and repeat offender at least according to the PC police. Such a repeat offender in fact, that self-described reporter and speaker on issues of Social Justice Derrick Clifton once described her as, “pop music’s worst cultural appropriator.”
As we don’t have the time to cover all her alleged offenses here, which could easily fill a top ten all their own. Let us instead focus on the few that created the biggest outrage. Like the time pictured below, where she appeared on stage with some rather sexy looking mummies.
These mummies however, were apparently a bit too much like a racist black female stereotype for some.
There was also that time Katy gave a Japanese Geisha inspired performance at the American Music Awards. Which earned her articles with headlines like “Yes, Katy Perry’s Sexy Geisha Performance Was Racist,” and comments like this on Twitter.
One might think that Ms. Perry would have learned her lesson from the previous two incidents, and played it safe going forward. Yet that didn’t appear to be the case when she posted this “current mood” picture to her Instagram, featuring an image of the Hindu Deity Kali.
The post which is still up, has received over 25,000 comments. A few examples of which are below.
“Respect her she is our goddess of hindu u can’t use it in this way, seriously u lost Respect in my eyes.”
“Are you serious? You’re using pics of our Goddesses as memes?
“Use of the image of Goddess is not right. It is not some random image there is huge history behind that image. Respect other people feelings, believes and it is your social responsibility.”
While Katy has earned lots of SJW ire in recent years, maybe she can at least take comfort in the fact it’s nothing compared to what’s been thrown at her long time rival and nemesis.
02. Privileged White Colonialist Blonde Nazi Barbie Taylor Swift
As so far we have focused primarily on the social media side of SJW culture. Let’s turn for a moment to the more official journalistic part of the regressive left hive mind. With the PC police having such a big presence online, and attacking famous celebrities with outlandish headlines always a great way to ensure high web traffic. It’s of little surprise stars of all types often end up on the receiving end of hit piece stories. One star though seems to consistently be a favorite target, and it’s easy to see why. As the Observer puts it, Taylor Swift “represents everything the social justice police resent: she’s white, she’s pretty, she’s talented, and she’s amazingly successful.”
The following is just a small sample of the headlines that have been written against Ms. Swift by the online news media. Salon wrote a scathing piece revealing her to be just a, “privileged daughter of wealthy plutocrats.” Noted feminist Camille Paglia wrote for the Hollywood Reporter, that the stars, “twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth.” In the same piece Camille even directly refers to Taylor as an “Obnoxious Nazi Barbie”. Even infamous liberal media empire Gawker got in on the fun stating, there is “something opportunistic and sinister” about Swift and her friends group, maybe even something “evil”.
While so far these have just been generalized take-downs of Ms. Swift from popular SJW havens online, things have gotten far worse for the pop star in the moments when she actually has done something seemingly offensive. Case in point, the backlash over her Wildest Dreams music video which among other things was accused of “romanticizing white colonialism, and for using Africa as a backdrop for a story about white people.” The Daily Dot who wrote that the video, “wants to have its old-school Hollywood romance but ends up eating some old-school Hollywood racism, too” also took issue with her earlier Shake It Off video believing it to perpetuate black stereotypes.
The young pop star has also faced criticism for not going far enough to prove her Feminist and Anti-conservative credentials in leftist Hollywood. With blogs like TheDailyBeast running stories titled, “Taylor Swift’s Loud Election Silence—and Connection to Donald Trump” and “Taylor Swift’s Spineless Feminism.” In fact it was in this last article that author Amy Zimmerman brings up another reason why Taylor isn’t earning any love from SJW corners. Which is that she has yet to publicly condemn her more “problematic fans.” Amy writes, “the so-called Alt-right has crowned Swift as the Aryan prom queen of their burgeoning neo-Nazi movement.”
In a more recent article entitled, “It’s Time for Taylor Swift to Denounce Her Neo-Nazi Admirers”. She reminds readers that neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer once wrote, “Taylor Swift is a pure Aryan goddess, like something out of classical Greek poetry. It is also an established fact that Taylor Swift is secretly a Nazi and is simply waiting for the time when Donald Trump makes it safe for her to come out and announce her Aryan agenda to the world. Probably, she will be betrothed to Trump’s son, and they will be crowned American royalty.”While most would just laugh at the inherent silliness of these claims, SJW’s somehow seem to mange being legitimately bothered by them. A fact that has been noticed by those lovable troublemakers over at 4Chan. Who have taken to creating all sorts of fan-art depicting Taylor to be just the Nazi idol her critics keep declaring her. Some examples of which I have included in this section for your amusement.
01. White Cishet Gross Misogynistic Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans
We end this list with a two in one special, featuring nothing less than Captain America himself. We already mentioned this pairs fellow Marvel superhero Chris Pratt caught some backlash just for being next to Jennifer Lawrence at the wrong moment. But that is nothing compared to the outrage that came as a result of a promotional interview where the two actors in a moment relaxed levity, jokingly called call their fellow female Avenger Black Widow a slut and whore.
More specifically a reporter had asked the pair who they thought the character should end up with romantically, which led to Jeremy Renner declaring in no uncertain words “she’s a slut”. This response prompted huge laughter from Chris Evans who then doubled down on the sentiment stating, “she’s a complete whore.” See for yourself here in the video below.
Predictably the outraged response to the joke, was swift and severe online.
Unsurprisingly, both actors soon issued formal apologies. In a statement released via Entertainment Weekly the actors said respectively.
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 celebrity sanity, it would appear that for Jeremy Renner at least his apology was likely just an insincere bit of PR, forced upon him by his Disney-Marvel handlers. As shortly following his written statement, he appeared on the late night talk show Conan and indicated he was largely unapologetic. Going so far as to laugh at the fact he got in what he described as “internet trouble.”
This too of course resulted in it’s own separate mini controversy. With multiple publications calling for Renner’s head after he had the nerve to not feel bad about insulting a fictional character.
