Sam Elliott, star of 1883, has issued an apology for his criticism of the “allusions to homosexuality” found in Jane Campion’s recent Western, The Power of the Dog.
Sam described the movie as a “piece of s*** Western” with “allusions of homosexuality”. He said about the film’s female New Zealander director, Campion: “What the f*** does this woman from down there know about the American West?“
I don’t agree with Sam’s criticism of Campion, but as the blue-haired mob insist on the authenticity of casting, he’s only playing by the rules of their game. The Hollywood luvvies literally play make-believe for a living. So demanding that actors, actresses and directors have to have experience in the projects they take on is ridiculous.
Do the hysterical blue hairs think Ridley Scott had the experience of fighting Xenomorphs before he took on Alien, or Zemekis had traveled back in time before delivering Back To The Future? What about Will Smith, did he have a secret tendency for violence before he took on the role of Ali? Don’t answer that!
Bowing To His Masters
Speaking during a promotion for his series 1883, Elliott has now bowed to the mob, swallowed his pride (snigger), got on all fours, and felt the Power Of The Doggystyle. He pleads:
“The gay community has been incredible to me my entire career, and I mean my entire career, from before I got started in this town. Friends on every level and every job description up until today… I’m sorry I hurt any of those friends and someone that I loved. And anyone else by the words that I used.”
In his apology, Elliot made sure to address Campion, who won the Oscar for directing the Western, and Cumberbatch who was nominated for his acting performance.
“I also told the WTF podcaster that I thought Jane Campion was a brilliant director, and I want to apologize to the cast of ‘The Power of the Dog,’ brilliant actors all,”
“And in particular Benedict Cumberbatch. I can only say that I’m sorry and I am. I am.”
As the saying goes:
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.”
Like Joe Rogan before him, what was once an alpha-male who stood by his convictions quickly took the knee as soon as the minority started screaming into their soy lattes. Reports that Sam Elliott will be seen in the sequel to Brokeback Mountain are unfounded at this time.
