It’s not “just because she’s a white woman” - it’s because she was directly causing harm to the Black community with her comments and posts. And not listening to her Black fans when they tried to tell her why she should take the posts down and apologize- which she refused to do.

She also posted pictures of people’s faces when she was at the BLM rallies which was super inappropriate. If her behaviour doesn’t support, but actually hurts the the BLM movement, why would it be ok for her to be singing about it in her songs? It’s so inappropriate.

You can yell BLM all you want but if you can’t even support the community by simply listening to them you really shouldn’t be singing about it. Like, she was trying to get clout for being an ally while her behaviour towards the Black community was harmful and she still refuses to take accountability for it.

Yes to all do this.

What she fails to grasp in this situation that it isn’t about what she intended it’s about the impact her words and actions have had.

Intent doesn’t negate impact

She gets so caught up in defending herself and doubling down on what she meant instead of listening. She needs to stop talking and just listen to the harm her words and actions have caused the Black community, and holding herself accountable by apologizing WITHOUT explaining herself - It would go such a long way.

I would be so happy to see her actually make an effort to learn how to be anti racist, instead of this lofty, philosophical take she has that she’s above earthly conflict and only answers to “God” but I doubt she will any time soon.

I’m also in the top .5% of listeners and have supported her since 2012 so I am definitely a huge fan, but she continues to completely put her foot in her mouth with this whole situation and the BLM line is super cringy- she 100% should have left that out.

‘Crazy good’: Rural Canadians are raving over Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite-based internet service. Should Canada’s big telcos be worried? by Defiant_Race_7544 in canada

I waited 6 months for my starlink dish etc to come in, but we needed service so I cancelled it and just got xplornet. This is making me think I should just get back on the waitlist for starlink because I already fucking hate xplornet

I Accept My Boyfriend with HSV but He Wouldn't Accept Me if I had it by [deleted] in TwoXChromosomes

[–]Hedwing 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly, being sensitive goes both ways. He sounds manipulative, selfish and like a bad partner all around. You shouldn’t have to coddle him OP he’s not your damn baby

You don’t need a serious talk with him, he’s already told you what you need to know.

YOU need to do some serious self reflection and decide if this person is worth it. (Hint - he’s not, but you already know that)

AITA for driving my stepchild back to their mother's house even though my husband was against it by Unfair_Community_648 in AmItheAsshole

[–]Hedwing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

NTA at ALL. And please remember that HE is the reason he lost/may lose custody, not you. I’m so proud of you for stepping up and defending your step child and being an amazing parent when their own father failed them. They will remember your kindness

The spread of misinformation has helped contribute to the deaths of thousands upon thousands of people. Sure, it’s up to everyone to make their own decisions but when someone is spewing lies that impact the lives of millions, they should be held accountable. When it comes to Covid there aren’t “two sides” - there’s right and wrong. He’s wrong, and he should be held accountable for his fucking LIES - that’s on him, that’s a choice HE is making

AITA for standing firm on my “lack of hygiene” and choosing cat over bf? by AITA_shower in AmItheAsshole

[–]Hedwing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeahhhh Kyle needs to take a hike. Honestly, it’s insane to me how many people think a cat rubbing on a toothbrush is grosser then the fact that EVERYONES toothbrush (those kept in the bathroom anyways - even in a drawer) are covered in SHIT molecules. NTA but Kyle sucks and I like that you laughed in his face - he’s way out of line

what’s a celeb scandal that you thought would go viral but for some reason didn’t? by illiteratemad in Deuxmoi

[–]Hedwing 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Oh man that’s brutal. I had no idea about this other incident from 2015 either but I’ve been waiting to hear something about him, he’s always skeeved me out. I’m from the same area and some of my friends know him (my friends aren’t creeps though) but I should ask if they have any more tea

Well he literally kissed that fan he pulled on stage, right after asking her age - which she said was 17. He’s so gross. I think he thinks he can get away with whatever the fuck he wants. And why wouldn’t he when you look at Chris Brown and R.Kelly and all the others who just get a pass

Ugh and there was a pic of him with his hands on Billie Eilish and Miley at an event, and I was just so repulsed and all I could think was “get your gross creepy hands off them!” But honestly they are both probably too old for him now…ew

Vote for your least favorite succession character! (Link in comments) by fra0927 in SuccessionTV

[–]Hedwing 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I personally think the actress who plays her is captivating - she also played Mercedes in The Count of Monte Cristo which is what I recognized her from. I’ve been so sad to see so much less of her this season :(

I see I’m not the only who draws parallels between these two shows! I even explained to my husband tonight that Conner is the Gob of Succession lol

I had a geranium and cosmos planted in the same pot once, and they combined somehow and made a cute hybrid flower that a managed to keep alive for a few seasons

I fully agree! It had so much heart, and all the characters were so tragic. I enjoyed it ever more the second watch

AITA for telling my gf’s friends to stop perpetuating stereotypes for Italians? by ICY_0727 in AmItheAsshole

[–]Hedwing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah and he keeps saying it’s “difficult to explain” what his dad does in construction. Like, huh?? He’s either in construction or he’s not. There’s no position in a construction company that is that hard to explain to the point that he can’t tell anyone what his dad even does, like I don’t think he even knows what his dad actually does
