"You. What are your thoughts. Well scarlett johansson is tied to the character of black widow and moving forward. There were great opportunities. i think it's to alienate someone so like talent so publicly. Seems like something that you shouldn't do if you are the head of entertainment industry or company or corporation. I don't from the first day that the lawsuit was dropped. The i just didn't understand why this was being done publicly. And so if it is true that they've cut all ties than while. I don't know how. I don't know how either moves forward. I don't know how disney attracts talent without everyone knowing that there is a dagger behind that is ready to pounce at a moment's notice and i don't know how like so basically what he's looking at the only thing comparable that i have is John boyega from a or the sequel trilogy in terms of. Oh you're not going to disney plus me and being rather vocal about his involvement is finn and minimization of the character. Like at least that was an interesting thing and that seemed like john roy sort sorta punching up and saying no. I didn't like it either. Which i was like. Oh you're playing with fire. And now with scarlett johansson literally holding a flame thrower and disney saying. You don't do that to disney. It just seems like a rift. It seems like a rift. That if i were in an actor or actresses position than i would be. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure i don't really care how much you pay me because at a moment's notice the Sort of damocles could drop on me because you don't pay me like if i lend you fifty bucks and then you say i'm not gonna pay you back and then i say okay. I'm going to sue you for fifty bucks they say this ungrateful individual. I guess like if if you if we interim so if you're the talent and you enter into a contract is what disney saying if you enter into a contract with us and we renege on that contract you can count on us for publicly shaming you and also posting your your salary in on our twitter page and using it as a blunt instrument to to to bang over the head with a horrible horrible. Pr horrible way to run a company just in general but even worse optically the optics of this are just horrible because anybody can look at this situation. Say look dude. You guys had a contract. You broke the contract. You're in breach. She had every right to do exactly what she did. And johannes van and i think to take it out on her on other doesn't make any sense to me.

"This isn't my talk dirt alert. Everything you need to know from the world of entertainment and pop culture at the top of every hour on my talk 1071 Now tell us everything. Everything. Everything Well. John Boyega rips Disney, saying his role as the black lead character in the Star Wars franchise was pushed aside. While he says he always defends J. J. Abrams, who directed two of the more recent Flix, he says the studio itself screwed the pooch and misled both him and the fan base about Finn's character who and I'm a Star Wars fan, and I'd have to agree. I mean in the force awakens, which is the first of the 313 more recent ones. He was a huge role, and then all of a sudden he did just dwindle away. And it was. He wasn't the only person of color who story was sidelined in that third. They even had a love story with him and another character and both of them. Yeah, it's Definitely something safer, He said. It quite bluntly. I would say to Disney don't bring out a black character market them to be much more important in the franchise than they are. And then have them pushed aside. Yes. So I'm I'm always glad he's speaking out. Me too. That's necessary. Yeah, and I thought that I mean, before he even spoke out. I as a fan was like whatever happened to his oId. This is a fun story. Tyler Perry is officially a billionaire. Now it's a really life rags to riches story. You may know that he was once homeless and now is officially a billionaire, according to Forbes. That's like that is amazing, and it is a true rags to riches story. Um, I just want to say billion air. Yeah, that's a billionaire. Sorry, but but the bailing pavilions Yeah, it's a lot of media mogul has earned 1.4 billion pretax income since 2005. I just say, I'm actually surprised that that it's just that it took this long. It's you know, he just is so Everywhere. I'm shocked that he wasn't already. Well, what? I'm glad he is. Yeah, I read that. It was He just recently did like a $250 million deal with through 2025 or something like that. I think that that's kind of what propelled him into that next level. So amazing. Yeah.

"John has been praised for doing the good work and protesting, but he's also been met with some. Just terrible comments on social media these are some of the comments. John has been getting on social one says quote. You are not even American as discussing sad and bad as it was George Floyd. You just using excuse to spout hate against white people. I don't even want to give any sort of light to a tweet that exists like that that is so. Far Gone Is. What what does it matter if he's America and I mean the fact that I want to point out that he even had to say I don't know if I'm going to have a career after this because I'm stepping up for people of Color. The fact that that is even thought that he has to feel like his in his brain. To contemplate is also part of the problem you know and I'm not gonNA lie, guys. I think that's a that's a thought. Everybody who is black has when you're thinking about employment because you think like. How far can I go because there are so many people that? Don't look like you. In a workforce and I think that's been a legitimate concern of a lot of black people is like Kim I advocate for people who look like me, and is it going to seem radical and it sucks that people even feel like that, so I completely understand why he made that statement. Because at some point you have to say, I have to do what feels right to my my soul, and spirit, and speaking up for yourself, and for your community should never look be looked down upon, but I have to tell you there are a lot of. Of people who would rather you be silent? There are a lot of jobs that would rather be silent than being advocate and I think that that tide is changing, but I completely understand why he said it, and I think it's important to really show these negative comments. Because as much as you can get that praise, there are just as many negative comments in your in your social media. People talking you know making comments and it's important to blast. Those people can see how absolutely ridiculous they look. Yeah and John Has Been Shutting Down Racist for. For a long time now on social media, how much do you engage with the hate? Is it good to shut them down in a very public way, or is it giving trolls too much power I? Think it really depends I really kinda. Try To pick and choose my battles with quote. Unquote haters I, think in this case. They're not really haters. They're definitely people who are racist so I. think that ultimately I feel like if there is a resolution that can be had, and there's a conversation that somebody can take something away from in A. A positive way to learn something I'm willing to engage in that, but if somebody's just so far gone, and they're thinking, I'm not gonNA waste my time. Getting upset over somebody that is is just completely out of their head on on matters that I completely disagree with them on. So I think that's something that you really do have to pick and choose. You can't give attention to people that just want US few. Hey, I think it depends i. think it depends on where you're at if you ask me Monday. I had time on Monday Monday. But Tuesday I might not you know what I mean? It depends on on on the men that I've. Is You know because there are there days where? My chops scene, and then there are days where I'm just blocking people. It just depends sunny because there are some days where you are more raised some days, you Martin Luther King Days Malcolm X. just depends. Yeah, I, know and it in it depends on who you want to highlight. Because sometimes these trolls online have like ten followers talking to himself, and you still hate at the end of the day and affects us, but then when we respond now we're highlighting it to more people to chime. Chime in so yeah, you definitely have to wisely choose you engage with but it is never okay to spew. Hey, because guess, what if you just on that one day we're GONNA fight back. Yeah, right this important sometimes to show people some of the ugly stuff because I think that there are some people who think that doesn't happen or they don't realize it's that bad and I think like. When I talked about my experiences of some of the things I was getting. People were shocked and. I, posted, a few of those in my idea in my story, and people were shocked that people felt the need to do. Some of the things they were saying sometimes I think it's important, even though it was uncomfortable to show it, because it gets ugly, does get ugly and people are exercising their freedom of speech. Maybe too much at times, actually Mark Zuckerberg is coming under fire after choosing to allow post from president. Donald trump to remain on facebook. The Post which was also shared on twitter said in part when the looting starts. This shooting starts twitter hit the post under a disclaimer saying it violated their rules about glorifying violence while facebook left it alone a choice sucker. Berg continues to defend facebook employees staged. Staged a virtual walkout over the decision and some have even resigned, should social media, platforms, police, comments, or should people be able to you know exercise the freedom of speech, no matter what I mean, I think people want you to be able to exercise freedom of speech analysis something that offends them right I mean there's so many people who were who were advocating for our constitutional rights three weeks ago when they wanted to open up their favor barbershop, but now the people are doing it and exercising a fundamental right to be able to protest peacefully. They don't like that, so I think. People like to pick and choose who gets the freedom of speech? WHO GETS THOSE FREEDOMS? So that's always interesting to me, but. I think that people have to be able to. Express themselves in a way. If it's legal, we are have every right to be able to do it. And I and I think on social media, especially, if violence that's that should be unacceptable violence being enacted inciting. Public groups to come at each other. That should never be acceptable. People are literally walking out on mark, Zuckerberg. Don't agree with him, and they are very adamant about them..

That's pretty that I think even Taylor Swift herself would find funny Absolu- waste of time right, but hey. It's you know I didn't know about Shit when I was a certain age Abe. Shame on you. If you over seventeen years old and you're doing this shit to come on. Get get your fucking life together. Honestly I. Don't know why AM I. had my shit together and seventeen. Five fucking didn't the second I became an adult I. Suddenly was responsible and that's not true. John Boyega is trending. Because he like I was wondering how what he said is controversial. He came out as anti-racists. He tweeted thing. You made the point. Yeah, he meeting yesterday. Basically somebody the fact like I. Hate fucking racists fuck racists I fucking hate them. Obviously because there's you know, look the the the news. And under like all the reply. There is a lot of replies. A mixture of people completely understanding the on the same page is him understand you're saying then you have like these people would. Their dumb takes trying to make his you know stance against racism, somehow about them, and then trying to argue like what racism is, and you can only imagine what a man of color who was in a star wars films mentions look like when you put out a full on like anti-racists, stance, tweet and they. You pointing that out made me realize Oh. Yeah, he was in star. Got To be right there like it's just such as. For me the globe that like you're GONNA get some. Very. Yeah. I'm sure the overlap of who are just like vitriolic frothing at the mouth. Misogynists are also you know really up on like racial dynamics in the disparities in this country and. Across the world, always inside of oppressed group. Star Wars there is something specifically misogynistic about the Star Wars Fan base, or is it just such a fan base that it's? Inevitably going to include a misogynist because I think about A. The Real Star Wars fans I know they are namath. Yes, they are. They are rally in on the lore of like balance of power. You know what I mean like they're they're. They're into those themes and are probably at the same time. You're like. Yeah. The film may be could have done some female characters a lot better than they did. Yes, but I think it's the fan base is so. So big, it's like it gets so big and broad you just you're just GONNA have a ton of different opinions on one thing, so yeah I do wonder because the original movies like you just have this implicit sort of. It's implied that women can't be jet is and like without people, necessarily like overtly being like well I'm a sexist and I. Therefore like Star Wars, I could see how like. Like the Orig- Ttrij, could you know the the most notable woman is somebody who is like you know roughed up into a romantic relationship in the case of Lia with Han and then you know she's has the like the real sexy image that everybody refers to is slave. Lay US alike. I. Can I can see where like some of that might lineup, but sure I think it's like anything that. That, you'd like watch something when you're young. You don't fuck you. Don't get your like yeah, right? Yeah men better women damsels save them week like it's yeah, you know, but but I. don't know it would be hilarious if there were like these massage like red pill dues were like y'all man, you Focus Star Wars, though all. That's what I'm talking about What I'm yeah, anyway then. Sort of become like a Gamer Gate light type mission because I think like you know, there are pockets of nerd culture that still just hold onto these toxic toxic a ideals. But the thing is Boyega, then went on like instagram. Because you just let me say it louder for people in the back Buck White Racist people because let me tell you there is a lot of pain for people right now. not just black with you really disturbed by the lack of justice in this country. It's really disheartening to see what's going on. Especially when you see the fallout in Minneapolis where people are protesting, but the police are shooting gas cannisters like these people were armed to the teeth like the white people at the Michigan State. House the capital. But again we've talked about this disparity long enough, but. Were not armed at all. Right? No sts especially not. It's I mean just look at the juxtaposition. Guys ski masks and tag gear with a full on assault weapons. Standing there and you have children who are like wearing surgical masks with signs say like my life matters and you're like. Oh, we better. They're shooting them with, but again this is this is the reality we live in, and that's the hurt that a lot of black people people of color, any oppressed person living in this country can identify with, and so he just let it be known on I G and a lot and I think a lot of people on twitter. Yes, go off, John Boyega like exactly val. A lot of people are like fuck racism in like fuck all of this shit. Yes. So, yeah, that's so that got that got trending. Yeah.
