We know not to expect much enlightenment off-screen from Hollywood types who insert their political views into the national debate. And that conservative, America-loving actors are an endangered species — or at the very least, in hiding for their own career preservation.
That’s why I especially love Rob Lowe’s awesome response to entitled, bratty pop “star” Ariana Grande’s faux apology for her America-hating comments.
As reported by Huffington Post:
On Wednesday, pint-sized pop star and ponytail enthusiast Ariana Grande apologized for getting caught on camera saying that “I hate Americans” and “I hate America,” after she made the bizarre choice to lick donuts that she hadn’t purchased.
Grande claimed her comments were taken out of context and she was “upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole.” She then tried to make her case by citing child obesity rates, but at least one person out there isn’t buying it, and that guy is Robe Lowe. He’s calling her apology “#Lame.”
Don’t you just love, too, that Lowe quotes his grandpa in dissing Grande?Lowe went on to offer Ms. Grande some free career advice, recalling another pop star, America-bashing moment.
Other Twitterers piled onto #IActuallyLoveAmerica with some choice words of their own:
Couldn’t agree more, paulyballgame. But still have to ask, why has it become “cool” to hate America? As one Twitterer suggested, and we have suggested elsewhere, perhaps those who hate America should just leave. It is still a free country (for now), after all.
This last one sums up my feelings exactly:
