A celebrity faux pas occurred on the red carpet of some self-important Hollywood red carpet event when Jerry Seinfeld refused a random hug from a scary fat blond fan who turned out to be Kesha. Seinfeld had no clue who the woman was, which speaks to everybody over thirty, over anybody with a college degree and male genitalia. Or either or.
Seinfeld long ago reached the status in career and money when he no longer had to fake hug other celebrities, let alone corpulent pop mimers with piercings. Seinfeld’s old school. If he’s going to huge a young chick he doesn’t know, it’s going to be part of a post-coital fake goodbye. Not to score sorority charm points.
Seinfeld reminds us that not all celebrities are created equal. Watching his Driving in Cars shorts, you can tell the mega successful comedian has genuine admiration for other talented performers and artists. Kesha is not Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Her claim to fame is standing in for the songs written and produced by a man she falsely claimed rape her. Also, once trying to get away with wearing a bikini and thinking people wouldn’t notice.
We’re asking the Muslims to call out the bad apples among their own kind. It’s time celebrities did the same, rather than the rote platitudes and compliments for anybody in their industry.
