I honestly don't even know who Blake Lively is but I guess she's in trouble on the Internet for the crime of quoting Sir Mix A Lot while white, or "cultural appropriation" as the kids are calling it these days.
I don't want to waste a lot of time on this so let's do bullet points
- Quoting a decades-old, Grammy-winning, top ten hit is cultural appropriation? Of what, her grandfather's CD collection?
- Is hop hop supposed to be just for black people again? Didn't we get past that in the 80s? I'm pretty sure hip hop is a music genre, not a race. Or if we're talking appropriation, sure, hip hop is a culture, but that doesn't mean you have to be deep in it to salute it. If quoting hip hop lyrics is some sort of culturally insensitive act of colonization then call me Christopher Columbus.
- You know what I find more problematic, and a bigger sign a broken culture, than a white person quoting "LA face with the Oakland booty" on Twitter? Women posting pictures of their asses on Twitter.
- Obviously we all have too much goddamn free time. Let's get back to worrying about something important, like what genitals the stranger in the bathroom stall next to us had at birth. (JUST KIDDING HOLY SHIT THAT WAS SARCASM THIS BATHROOM SMOKESCREEN IS TRANSPHOBIC, SEXIST, AND ABSURD). There, now if my bus drives off the Richmond Bridge today the last thing I wrote is no longer celebrity Twitter shit. Have a nice day.
