So I had a moment today where I stopped and asked myself, “Are we too harsh on people?” To be honest, I’ve had this moment a few times lately.
Websites like ours rely on several things, one of which being poking fun at celebrities and how incredibly ridiculous they all are.
An article was written not too long ago explaining how we decide who we’re going to make fun of. You were asked to pay attention to the fact that serious artists are noticeably absent from Dirt in a negative light—think Meryl Streep. We haven’t said one bad word about Meryl Streep.
So who DO we make fun of? I like going after the reality stars. I absolutely LOVE going after the reality stars. Why? For starters, they deserve it. But there’s a deeper reason, though. Look at it this way.
They would not EXIST if it weren’t for websites like this. People like Snooki and Heidi Montag rely on the negative publicity. Why? Because that’s mainly the only type of publicity they get. Without it, what are they? Nonexistent. Shouldn’t they be thanking us for keeping them in the spotlight? What are their crazy shenanigans if we’re not recording them?
Think about it. Why is there always some sort of hype surrounding Snooki? It’s people making fun of her hair. People making fun of her face. People making fun of her height. People making fun of the fact that she has the IQ of an amoeba.
I’d also like to throw out there that these people COULD choose to turn their lives around and keep their fame and fortune through better methods, but we all know that takes way too much work. It’s so much easier to become rich by acting like a total asshole.
I’d like to see what would happen if for one week, we all left the stars alone like they’re constantly requesting. They might not like being irrelevant as much as they think they would…
