Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

August 30, 2017

I think that O’Dowd needs to take personal responsibility for his public comments and actions – whether in interviews and social media or where ever else – as even the cop character he played in the film “Bridesmaids” was telling another character in one scene she ought to do, but he seems happier to brush off or ignore criticisms in real life.

The picture I’m getting is that O’Dowd does not want to accept personal responsibility for any offensive or terrible things he Tweets or has said in interviews (he has insulted people of faith in interviews, insulted all religion in general, and periodically insults conservatives or Republicans on his Twitter account).

I found out today I was blocked by O’Dowd on Twitter. I suppose he blocked me either yesterday or today – probably today, though I’m not sure.

O’Dowd is apparently not as nice and friendly as the media keep saying he is.

However, that is something I’ve come to discern over the last year or two after reading more of his interviews, which came as a surprise at first, because I was expecting him to be as nice in real life as the character he played in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie.

I’m not sure exactly which tweet of mine set O’Dowd off that caused him to block me. Or, maybe it was a combination Tweets?

(Maybe it was this Aug 24 Tweet where I said I had no plans of watching his “Get Shorty” show, as he slams conservatives on his Twitter page and is an anti-theist?)

I’ve only blogged about O’Dowd a few times on my blog. I’ve never tweeted to him or at him, however. I’ve never threatened him or harassed him. I’m harmless. I’m just a person with a blog and some opinions.

Even though O’Dowd has blocked me, by logging out of Twitter, I can still go back to his page and read it, if I so choose.

I didn’t have plans of visiting O’Dowd’s Twitter page on a regular basis, only to check back over this next week or so to see if he’s done any charity work on behalf of Texans displaced by Hurricane Harvey, but no, he has not.

I would guess O’Dowd periodically checks for his name on Twitter, under the hash tag system – because I was hash tagging his name to the Tweets I made where I linked to my few blog posts about him?

I’ve only blogged about this guy a handful of times on my blog here.

I have never used O’Dowd’s Twitter handle to talk to him personally or to leave him comments.  (Until today, when I sub-tweeted his Melania Trump bashing tweet here, but this was after he blocked me.)

(By the way, even though O’Dowd blocked me, I did not block him.)

Actor Chris O’Dowd Silent on Hurricane Harvey Victims but Not Islamic Migrants

Actor Chris O’Dowd Silent on Hurricane Harvey Victims but Not Islamic Migrants – Also: Would O’Dowd Mock Singer Beyonce For Her Religious Beliefs and Practices?


Where to Donate to (Hurricane) Harvey Victims (and How to Avoid Scams) – New York Times

And, update, August 30, 2017: I can only guess it was this very post that motivated O’Dowd to Block me on Twitter?


A year of more ago, actor Chris O’Dowd and his wife, Dawn O’Porter, were using their social media to promote charities related to Islamic migrants – they were trying to raise funds to help Muslims who were migrating to Europe.

Like most all liberals, they are too politically correct to notice or admit that a percentage of these migrants consist of young, single men, and ones who, when they arrive at their destinations, rape or grope European women or little boys.

See these links (you can find more examples than this if you google for them):

–   ‘Just wait…’ Islamic State reveals it has smuggled THOUSANDS of extremists into Europe

–   Germany’s Migrant Rape Crisis Spirals out of Control

–  ‘Easy Meat.’ Britain’s Muslim Rape Gang Cover-Up

 (Muslim) Migrant who admitted raping a 10-year-old boy at an Austrian swimming pool because of a ‘sexual emergency’ has his sentence cut and will soon be free

O’Dowd’s favorite atheist, Richard Dawkins, got in trouble some time ago for making critical comments about Islam, by the way:

New Atheist Richard Dawkins Dis-Invited to Speak by Liberal Berkeley Radio Station for Criticizing Islam

As much as I dislike Dawkins (specifically, his manner of promoting his atheism, which tends to be arrogant and obnoxious), I do believe Dawkins is at least correct in mentioning the dangers posed by extremist Islam, which is more than I can say for O’Dowd and a majority of liberals and anti- Trump Republicans, who remain in denial about it (or silence, due to political correctness).

Contrary to what O’Dowd seems to believe (from what I saw of his Tweets on the subject), Muslim migrants to Europe or the U.S.A. are not the same thing as 20th century Irish immigrants to the United States, as I discussed in another post earlier (under the section about Pence).

At any rate, O’Dowd’s wife, O’Porter, kept tweeting links and things a year or more ago, asking readers to donate funds to help buy food or supplies for Islamic migrants coming into Europe. At that time, O’Dowd re-tweeted a few of his wife’s Tweets about charity efforts for Islamic migrants.

Here we are days after Hurricane Harvey hit the south east region of Texas, causing loss of life and a lot of damage, and I don’t see anything at all by O’Dowd or his wife, O’Porter, on their respective Twitter pages or Instagram.

As of today, Aug 29, 2017 (Tuesday), the last tweet I see by O’Dowd is some jovial, goofy animated GIF of him, and that Tweet is dated August 24.

Edit: As of today, August 30, the latest Tweet I see by O’Dowd is this August 29 Tweet, (see screen capture below) where he is making fun of first lady, Melania Trump, for the clothing she is wearing. He makes no mention in that Tweet or any other ones of how people can send money to charities that are helping people hurt by the hurricane and flooding.

Above: August 30, 2017 screen capture taken of an Aug 29, 2017 Tweet by actor Chris O’Dowd mocking first lady Melania Trump for her clothing, as she travels to Texas during the aftermath or Hurricane Harvey. This is the only mention or allusion to Hurricane Harvey this actor has made on his Twitter account to date. (When other celebrities, such as Kevin Hart and Sandra Bullock, are using their celebrity to raise money or send money to hurricane victims)

As of today, Aug 29, O’Dowd’s wife has tweeted several jokey tweets (example, example, example, and here is her first Tweet from Aug 25), but no mention of asking readers to send money to the Red Cross or any other charities, to help Texans who have been misplaced or lost their homes due to the storm.

And (edit here), as of August 30, O’Dowd’s wife, who was so keen to help Islamic migrants to Europe, has also not Tweeted anything in response to Hurricane Harvey, like asking her followers to donate funds to Red Cross or anything.  Today, she made this tweet where she seems to be promoting a book she wrote (or a book by one of her friends?).

Scrolling through O’Porter’s Twitter timeline, looking down Tweets she has made since August 24 and on-wards, I don’t see any mention of Hurricane Harvey at all.

Political Correctness Run Amok: Liberal Columnist Wants Gone With the Wind Movie Banned from Movie Theaters, and One Theater Pulled the Film

Political Correctness Run Amok: Liberal Columnist Wants Gone With the Wind Movie Banned from Movie Theaters, and One Theater Pulled the Film

Political correctness and hysteria by liberals over anything Civil War related as of late has really gone off the deep end.  Now some of them are wanting ‘Gone With the Wind’ to be banned, and one theater already pulled it.

Liberals really do over-react.

The movie was predominantly about Scarlett O’Hara’s ordeals – how her life was up-ended by the American Civil War, and secondly, it was about her stormy relationship with Rhett Butler.

The movie happened to be set during a time when slavery was legal, but the slavery aspect was incidental to the main plot. Even so, slavery was in fact legal in the 19th century, so if a movie set in that era in the southern United States totally omits it, that would be strange.

Personally, I find some aspects of O’Hara’s relationship with Butler to be quite sexist – there’s a part in the book, which is implied in the movie, where Butler rapes his own wife, and I find marital rape pretty loathsome.

Even so, I am not asking or demanding that the movie or book be pulled, banned, or only be available in museums due to sexism, Jiminy cricket.

Theater showings of ‘Gone With the Wind’ are cancelled. You already know why.

Orpheum theater won’t show ‘Gone With the Wind,’ calling film ‘insensitive’

Theater Cancels Gone with the Wind Screening After Receiving Complaints that the Film Is ‘Insensitive’

Gone With the Wind is now gone from The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, Tennessee. The theater’s board deemed the 1939 film “insensitive” to their larger audience after receiving “numerous comments” that stemmed from a screening on Aug. 11. As such, the title has been dropped from next year’s planned summer movie series.

The Inconsistency of Actor Chris O’Dowd Regarding Religion – His 2017 Comments

The Inconsistency of Actor Chris O’Dowd Regarding Religion – His 2017 Comments

(This post has been edited to add additional links or commentary)

One of my previous posts, out of several, critical of actor Chris O’Dowd, is already fifty feet long.

Rather than add more commentary to that post, making it even longer, I thought I’d make a new post, so here we are.

At this point, I guess you could say I am “hate-watching” O’Dowd’s career.  I am not following his career out of fondness, no.

Sometimes news about O’Dowd comes across my radar. I was on one of my social media accounts yesterday, and there was a headline saying that his “Get Shorty” cable TV show has been renewed for a season two.

So, I sometimes don’t go looking for stuff on O’Dowd, it crosses my path.

I started out sort of liking the guy.

I assumed (oh so very wrongly) that O’Dowd must be as nice and considerate in real life as the nice cop character he played in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie, which is why I googled him a few months after I first saw the movie on cable TV in 2015.

I thought around that time, well, if he’s as nice in real life and has played similar characters in other movies or shows, I may follow his career from here on out.

But the more I read about O’Dowd, the more disappointed I became.

If the Nathan Rhodes Character Acted in the Bridesmaids Movie the Way Actor Chris O’Dowd Does In Real Life, Most Women Audience Members Would’ve Hated the Character

If the Nathan Rhodes Character Acted in the Bridesmaids Movie the Way Actor Chris O’Dowd Does In Real Life, Most Women Audience Members Would’ve Hated the Character

I will use this blog post to copy and paste any comments I made about O’Dowd on other sites. If I make any more. So far, there’s just the one.


I posted the following comment at a British site under an article about Chris O’Dowd.

O’Dowd just annoys me (ever since I found out he’s kind of jerky in real life), and it bothers me that there’s this perception of him as being a “Really Nice Guy” when he really is not one.

Months ago, when I first looked up info on O’Dowd (after having seen him in ‘Bridesmaids’), I came across some survey taken among British or Irish readers who were asked “out of everyone (or all Irish entertainers) you had to be stuck on a long car trip with, who would you choose.”

And I think O’Dowd was number one on the list, or in the top five.

For some reason, a lot of Europeans seem to be under the faulty impression that O’Dowd is this really great, nice guy who it would be enjoyable to spend time with.

Then, about a month ago, actor Jon Hamm said in some article that Chris O’Dowd is “one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.” I’m sure in person, O’Dowd is probably polite or rather friendly. I won’t dispute that.

However, I don’t think anyone who is truly “nice” – especially someone who is a celebrity with a large platform, such as television appearances and magazine interviews -would go around unnecessarily bashing religious people or right wingers, as O’Dowd has done and continues to do.

The comments you see below were originally placed at the bottom of this page:

Kent Online has this commenting policy in place:

I did leave some critical comments on their page, but nothing rude or hateful. In case the people at Kent Online disagree, however, I have copied my comments here:

My Comments on Kent Online, Aug 3, 2017:

What I have to say here is critical, but I don’t consider it “abusive,” so I hope this comment is not scrubbed from this page.

Had O’Dowd’s “Nathan Rhodes” character in the 2011 ‘Bridesmaids’ movie done or said some of the things O’Dowd has said and done in real life-

(such as, but not limited to, condescendingly and smugly insulting people for believing in a deity, or being politically right wing) –

-women audience members would have detested that Rhodes character, and much more so than the “jerk” character, “Ted,” played by actor Jon Hamm. I don’t think O’Dowd appreciates this fact at all.

I have no desire to watch O’Dowd in any future movies or TV shows, after having learned more about him online.

I really thought the character O’Dowd played in 2011’s “Bridesmaids” movie, the cop named Rhodes, was very sweet, so I was assuming (when I looked him up online after having seen the film) that he would be much the same way, but I was very wrong, and it was disappointing.

Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Like Trash – The Mean Stars Site

Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Like Trash – The Mean Stars Site

In my opinion, it’s always so disappointing to find out that a celebrity you’ve seen in concert, or on a TV show, or in a movie or where ever else, turns out to be a pervert, jerk, snob, or weirdo in real life, especially when their screen or stage persona seems so friendly and kind – such as Bill Cosby or Chris O’Dowd (as of 2017, O’Dowd is arguably best known for playing the nice cop character, Rhodes, in the movie “Bridesmaids“).

I found out about the “Mean Stars” site through an article called “Celebrities who treat their fans like trash”

First, here is a link to the Mean Stars site:

Celebrities who treat their fans like trash -by Nicki Swift

Excerpts:

When you’re rich and famous, it’s not hard to lose sight of the little people. While it can’t be easy to be the center of attention, celebrities have the choice to either be cool about their fans’ overzealous adulation or to be a total celebri-jerk about it. Here are some stars who, allegedly, have done some pretty terrible things to us pathetic, regular people.

Rihanna

Rihanna is a rude girl, at least to some fans. “My coworker won free tickets and backstage passes to see Rihanna about a year after they were first playing ‘Umbrella’ on the radio,” a former fan told Thought Catalog.

“When her kids finally got the chance to go meet Rihanna, she was sitting at her makeup booth and refused to face them, or even look at them. When they asked for her autograph, she told the closest backup dancer to forge it for them and shooed them away.”
