Theres been a whole lot of news lately about some prominent entertainers getting accused of being total sex pests. Who knew that guys who become wealthy and famous would use their cultural cache to coerce people into having sex with them?

Its terrible, shocking stuff.

I think we should take some time out to consider the oft-forgottr victims in these ugly scenarios: The bros who now have to defend their fandom at bars and parties.

Consider for a moment the emotional toll it takes on a bro after hes shared a scathing missive by Russel Brand with his social network, only to awake in the morning to find that Mr. Brand is being accused of sexual assault.

The emotional toll this wreaks on the bro is not easily measured. It may cause them to act irrationally and erratically as they attempt to quell the pounding cognitive dissonance.

The Bro will be compelled to defend their opinion:

"Well maybe hes a creep but hes right about COVID". He'll say, forced to justify his deeply held beliefs in the face of unspeakable actions.

Consider for a moment the Bro whos recommended Joe Rogan to all of his coworkers as "a pretty smart guy" mere days before a YouTube megamix of Mr. Rogan saying the N-Word multiple times is released. Must this Bro now be maligned as a racist simply for finding the JRE compelling?

These Bros have been forced to shoulder unspeakable burdens as victims while the media plays and replays statements by the perpetrators. I cant imagine how soul crushing that is for these Bros, as they hold tight to their fandoms.

I think i'm kind of a jerk and not that bright, but i'd rather stick with that than wrapping my identity up with the welfare of any given celebrity, personality or brand.

viewed through another lens though my life is basically a katamari ball of stereotypes many of which revolve around having bought particular products or services. not trying to suggest i'm any better than these #brokenBros (i am, a lot) but i just don't get them at all.

I figure, if i'm this much of a dick and i'm just some rear end in a top hat, celebrities are probably real dicks. Maybe that's incorrectly holding people to my own low standard and actually they're all lovely people but I doubt it very much.

Well someone coming into this thread and claiming to be "better" than the victims of these mens actions wasnt at all what I expected but alas, here we are.

If you just accept every celebrity no matter how niche or small (yes even that one) is a sex pest or something like that then it's way easier to handle reality.

This is why you should make sure all your hero's are per-historic so it's very unlikely any new evidence will come forward to show their poo poo actually.

i think the real victims are all the bros who never managed to get famous, who would've been sex pest creeps if only their careers had elevated them to a level of authority and clout, but without it they're unable to coerce or groom anyone

Are the real victims, like the Real Ghostbusters, in that their the one without the cool Gorilla?

If so, i'd say just watch The Victims (1975) so you get to see a cool gorilla.

That's fine. I guess you're just losers then.

Every actor is a raging narcissist or they would never have tried to become an actor so sadly itís never surprising but Iím glad society now removes these people from pop culture

Edit these people should never be defended so if it happens just remove yourself from the conversation
