Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Is it Fall 2017 already? I first started these Conservative Derangement / Trump Derangement Syndrome posts around January 2017.

In some cases, liberal celebrities don’t just bash Trump, they bash anyone who voted for Trump.

As fall melts into winter, I will edit this post to add any new anti-Trump or Conservative Derangement comments or behavior by celebrities.

Chrissy Tiegen | September 2017

All I know is that she is supposedly a celebrity, but I don’t know who she is. I’m not sure if she is an actress or a model or what.

Chrissy Tiegen makes it known that when she slams the president, she’s NOT just insulting Trump

Robert Redford (movie actor) | September 2017

Robert Redford to Esquire: Trump Is ‘Our Fault,’ Worse ‘Than Nixon’

by C Weaver, Sept 13, 2017

Starring in movies about politics allegedly gives celebrities a political background. At least, that’s what Robert Redford thought in his latest interview.

The actor spoke with Esquire’s Michael Hainey in an interview published on September 13, where he talked about Nixon, Trump, and Mitch McConnell. …

On the subject of Donald Trump, Redford said, “I just think he is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault — that’s how I see it.”

Since he starred in All the President’s Men, Redford decided that he had enough political credibility to be able to compare Nixon to Trump: “Whatever Nixon was, whatever his dark side, he was an accomplished politician … I think on the other side, there’s more ignorance.”

Danny Zucker (TV producer) | September 2017

WOW: Modern Family producer tweets ‘Dear Christians … f*ck you’ over DACA , deletes tweet

It seems like DACA has brought out the ugliest (and most hilarious) deleted tweets from our ‘friends’ on the Left. Suppose that’s what happens when your whole set of political ideals is based on emotion rather than fact or reality.

Like this winner from Danny Zuker, producer of Modern Family:

[Tweet said:]

@DunnyZucker

Dear Christians, if you support @realdonaldtrump’s decisin to end DACA your Christianity is bullshit. But on the other hand fuck you. 9/3/17, 10:13 PM

/// end Tweet

Guess Danny doesn’t think Christians watch his show? Or maybe he just doesn’t want them to.

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.”

Actor Jim Carrey to Face Trial Over Death of Ex-Girlfriend; Reports: Actor Allegedly Gave Sexually Transmitted Diseases to Ex

Actor Jim Carrey to Face Trial Over Death of Ex-Girlfriend; Reports: Actor Allegedly Gave Sexually Transmitted Diseases to Ex

This is another disappointment. I’ve seen Carrey in movies on cable TV for years. He always struck me as being nice enough, based on those films.

It’s hard to imagine him using this young lady for sex, giving her STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), then coldly breaking up with her, and calling her a whore and so on.

If all that is true, he’s definitely not as nice in real life as some of the characters he’s played in movies and is a total dirt-ball.

He’s also apparently going on trial in his ex-girlfriend’s death. She committed suicide by way of drugs he supposedly bought for her.

Jim Carrey‘s deceased ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, was suicidal because she had STDs she believed she contracted from Carrey … according to a lawsuit filed by White’s estranged husband.

Mark Burton amended the wrongful death suit which he filed against Carrey — and in the new docs he says Cathriona had a text conversation with Jim in Feb. 2013 … where she told him she thought she had contracted an STD.

In the docs, Burton says Cathriona got tested and discovered she had Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2 and Gonorrhea. He says Jim tried to pressure her to keep quiet about it, which she did.

From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert by Dennis Prager

From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert by Dennis Prager

From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert by Dennis Prager, May 9, 2017

Excerpts:

Whatever the Left dominates, it ruins.

….But more than anything, it [Stephen Colbert’s vulgar commentary on Trump on his late night TV show] exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify without any exaggeration as the unraveling of civil society.

To anyone, liberal or conservative, who grew up watching Johnny Carson on late night TV, the descent from Carson to Colbert is as breathtaking as it is heartbreaking.

Actor Chris O’Dowd is a Great Big Jerk – Not Adorable, Not Nice, and No, Not Sexy

Actor Chris O’Dowd is a Great Big Jerk

This post has been edited several times to add new links and commentary

And there’s an August 2017 follow-up here:

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

And another here:

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter


I will say from the start this is going to be one very long post, though there is a TLDR (Too Long Didn’t Read) intro below.

I’ve never had a talent for being concise. This is something you may want to bookmark and read the rest later.

In a 2012 interview with GQ, which you can read here, actor Chris O’Dowd says:

“I don’t know, maybe there is something in female writing that I’m attracted to.”

Well, then, he should really love my blog posts about him.

(As of April 2017, I edited my last post about O’Dowd and his terrible movie role choices to toss in a few other things about the guy which annoy me – most of the new content is towards the bottom of that post. Don’t forget the other post I did where I dissected his low-key variety of sexism.)

The movie ‘Bridesmaids’ was first shown in movie theaters in the year 2011, but I did  not see it until I caught it for the first time on cable TV in spring or summer of 2015.

Sad Face Emoji In this movie, actor Chris O’Dowd played a nice guy named “Nathan Rhodes” who worked as a cop (a state trooper, specifically), and Kristen Wiig, who ended up being his love interest, played down-on-her-luck “Annie Walker.”

Actor Jon Hamm played the sexist creep dirt bag “Ted,” who was using Annie for sex.

This movie was more than just a movie for me when I saw it on TV in 2015. I saw this movie at a very low point in my life, and it helped to cheer me up – for a time, at least.


TLDR

Too Long, Didn’t Read summary:

I saw the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie on cable TV after undergoing (and still undergoing) some very upsetting events in my life, including the death of my mother, who was a very loving person and who was also a Republican and a devout Christian.

I found the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie encouraging at a low point in my life.

I wanted to learn more about the movie, and the people who made it and acted in it, so I did research about it on the internet, including interviews with actor Chris O’Dowd, who played the nice guy in the film (the role of the cop, Rhodes).

From what I saw, in real life, O’Dowd insults and ridicules Republicans and people of faith and concepts they believe in (such as prayer) on his Twitter account and in some interviews he’s given.

O’Dowd is into kind of vulgar or slightly sexist humor in real life, as well, which is a turn off to me – I prefer men who behave like gentlemen and who treat women with respect.

I was stunned and saddened to discover that the guy who played such a friendly, pleasant guy in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie is, in real life, rather rude and condescending towards other people he doesn’t even know – specifically, he’s rude and insulting towards conservatives, Republicans, or theists.

One result of this is that I can no longer really enjoy watching the movie any more.

Aug 2017 update: I also predict, further below, that I wouldn’t be surprised if O’Dowd and his wife, Dawn, divorce in several years, because she’s basically living for weeks or months at a time like a single mother, raising their two sons alone, while he’s off jet-setting around the world filming movies and TV shows.


MY BACKGROUND

I’ll explain my background here, (and I’m sorry it’s going to be quite long), so you can understand my position better, before I state some of my grievances with O’Dowd much farther below, because my background plays a part in my disappointment with O’Dowd and some of the other people associated with this film.

MY MOM’S HEALTH

My mother died a few years before I saw the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie on television, and my mother’s death was the most painful and heart-breaking thing I’ve ever had to endure.
