Celebrity Apartheid Week: the Beginning

Or some such clichéd title.

But that’s Hollywood and professional celeb-dom all over, isn’t it? A manufactured veneer of self-importance so absurd that when one steps back to look at it, one cannot help but laugh.

The joke, however, is on the viewer for who else could hold with such esteem an administration so petty and narcissistic that parallels of banana republics and rogue dictatorships spring up like activated mouse traps? Who could forgive the verbally bellicose celebrities’ admiration of dictators? Who will not see the great financial disparity of those who pretend to be the Common Man but are in truth anything but?

That the viewer is the butt of this joke and does not yet get it is more pathetic than humourous.
