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 at this time of writing. 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.)
