There are a lot of douchbags in the entertainment industry. There are a lot of douchbags everywhere frankly, but specifically in show biz....douchbaggary is rampid.
Now let me give a shout out to the incredible, funny, awesome, chill, "non douchey" pure of heart people that are also in the entertainment industry. You are the reason we all love what we do. I celebrate you
But this blog isn't about you. There is a need to celebrate you but there is more of a need to expel the opposite of you. And that's what this blog is about. The energy suckers, the malicious, dark, viciously competitive people...the douchebaggery. We need to talk about how we can weed out the pricks and find the “transparency of the douchebaggary” in this biz we call show.
First step is to identify them and call them out. I find this isn't done enough. Example: in my own life it took me years to get the balls to call out people who treated me like douchebags. And when I did, do you think they came back and said "Omg! I'm so sorry. I totally walked over people, slept with so in so to guarantee me the role. I shouldn’t have done that “ Nope. They are douchebags let's not forget. Douchebags don't think they are ever wrong and they lie, cheat, and find a way to make everything work in their favor.
Seems like the world we live in sometimes right?
Why do we need to weed them out out of the business? Because the entertainment industry is SO nice when they aren’t around. It’s hard to watch douchebags succeed. It’s so hard to watch those people whom you know have cheated, lied, harassed, their way to the top get celebrated by fans.
Wouldn’t it be so nice if they are all called out and carted away?
Is there a point to all this post? I thought there was but not really. Just a rant about wishing everyone who was good and decent were celebrated profusely, and the douchebags were called out.
Point made 🙌🏻
