The Most Hilarious Woke Pop Culture Fails Of 2021
This list represents just a small cache of the outrageousness that took place last year, but they're some of the best, by far.
2021 was a year of sheer madness and rampant insanity – much of it humorous, albeit frustrating. As the year has come and gone, we have 2022 to look forward to, and with it, a chance to start steering the ship back to a semblance of sanity and common sense.
In the meantime, it’s cathartic to go back and explore some of the most hilarious woke fails of 2021, in all their self-defeating glory. Some of these antics ended up doing more harm for thewWoke cause, while others backfired in glorious fashion.
These represent just a small cache of the outrageousness that took place last year, but they’re some of the best, by far. It’s a window into the kind of bizarre demagoguery that has turned the country upside down, even as it proceeds to burn itself out.
If nothing else, it’s a documentation of the lunacy that has infected our popular culture like a disease, and something future generations will look back on with a mixture of astonishment, and disappointment.
Wil Wheaton Hates White People
Extreme-radical far-leftist Wil Wheaton decided to kick 2021 off with a bombshell by labeling himself a “domestic terrorist insurgent.” Wheaton, who is white, labeled the entire white populace with this moniker, prompting the sane and rational to bounce back and forth between confusion, and laughter.
The rationale behind his ire was in response to the January 6th riots on Capitol Hill, of which not a single Republican in Congress condoned.
Naturally, Wheaton had next-to-nothing to say about the mass rioting of 2020, which took place over the course of a long, grueling four months, and ended with $5 billion dollars in estimated property damage, dozens wounded or dead (including black police officers), and countless minority-owned businesses burnt to the ground.

Nor did he have much to say about the overwhelming majority of Democrats in Congress who openly cheered it, supported it, and in some cases like Vice President Kamala Harris, helped bail out violent rioters with rap sheets a mile long. In the end, those who were aware of Wheaton’s unhinged past thought little of his latest rant.
Gina Carano Gets The Chop, Then Makes A Stunning Return
Hollywood hypocrisy reared its ugly head early on in 2021, fresh off a remarkably successful second season of Disney’s The Mandalorian. Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune on the show, was promptly fired by Disney after a series of tweets that questioned the efficacy of masks, the fascism of the ultra-Left transgender movement, and the dehumanization of political opponents, which was akin to the era of the Third Reich.
Meanwhile, fellow Mandalorian co-star Pedro Pascal was allowed to keep his job, after equating literally half of the United States to Hitler’s Nazi Party. The blowback was extreme, and the Star Wars brand took a huge knock as a result.
For her part, Gina Carano came soaring back with a new movie deal, courtesy of popular Conservative outlet The Daily Wire. She now stands as an advocate for personal freedom, alternative non-Woke entertainment, and human compassion.
It’s safe to say that the much-maligned Batwoman TV series was destined to failure, even before the first episode aired. Things only got worse when lead actress Ruby Rose abruptly exited the show, forcing a recast of the titular heroine.
It was the final nail in the coffin for the series, with viewership plunging to historical lows. Naturally, the typical crop of radicals blamed everyone for the show’s poor reception, particularly (of course) men.
The show started off with a nominal 1.86 million average viewers before shedding the bulk, and faceplanting with an abysmal 0.45 million average, as of November 2021.
Batwoman was mired in controversy throughout the entire year, particularly when Ruby Rose engaged in a tit-for-tat series of accusations with the show’s creators, citing on-set tensions and a poor working environment. While the far-leftists involved in the show devoured each other like rabid hyenas, regular folks sat back and nodded; their suspicions proven right.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Fibs About January 6th
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has turned herself into a pop culture icon, and with that comes an open invitation for ridicule whenever she does something stupid, which is essentially all of the time. AOC ended 2021 by vacationing in Florida, a state she purports to hate from top to bottom, particularly because of Governor Ron DeSantis, who is rumored to make a Presidential run in 2024.
However, AOC thought it would also be a good idea to lie openly about her presence during the January 6th riots, by making it sound as if she was mere inches away from being sexually assaulted, or murdered.
In truth, she was never in the vicinity of the riots, nor did any of the perpetrators in question ever go anywhere near the building she was in. It was typical of a disingenuous politician who went down to the southern border during the Trump administration, in order to take a photo of herself crying in front of an empty parking lot.
Joss Whedon Goes Down In Flames
Hollywood loves to virtue signal and talk down to everyone else about how they should change their attitude, and adopt their particular line of reasoning. Yet, it seems that the most despicable people lie within their own ranks, and that includes prolific writer/director Joss Whedon.
His career effectively came to an end in 2021 after numerous stars accused him of abusive behavior on set.
The smoke was too volumetric to ignore, with celebrities like the DCEU’s Ray Fisher, and former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Charisma Carpenter all raking Whedon over the coals. Fans watching from the sidelines immediately thought of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, where this type of behavior went on for years, and everyone knew about it, yet did nothing.
In their quest to banish Whedon into the Phantom Zone, Hollywood once again exposed its own corruption and hypocrisy.
Woka-Cola Reaps The Whirlwind
Popular soft drink maker Coca-Cola decided it would be a great idea to emulate Gillette’s disastrous business model by jumping on the Woke corporate bandwagon. The company announced that it would be pushing diversity training, and forcing employees to be “less white,” an idea which was already losing popularity with the majority of the country, due to virtue-signaling and false narratives.
Things got worse when it was revealed that Coca-Cola lobbied against a bill that would have banned all products created in China’s Xinjiang province, which utilizes forced human slave labor.
The resulting blowback was instantaneous, and it didn’t take long for the company to realize that they’d stepped on a particularly massive rake. Coca-Cola failed to factor in how easy it was for consumers to switch to Pepsi, with no change, aside from a different colored bottle.
The Left Triples Down On Racism
2021 was stuffed to the brim with gaffes from Leftists who claimed to be fighting for racial equality, yet spouted some of the most vitriolic racism imaginable. The Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture put out a chart which claimed that individualism, a healthy family structure, a focus on the scientific method, a strong work ethic, punctuality, and politeness were all aspects of “white culture” in the United States.
Next, U.S. President Joe Biden, who has a history of saying extremely racist things, claimed that black people were too stupid to know how to use the internet, and couldn’t hire lawyers or accountants. Next, Leftists in academia boldly proclaimed that mathematics were inherently racist, and standards should be lowered so that people of color could get a passing grade.
These insinuations are all part and parcel of the Left’s inherent soft bigotry of low expectations, which is rabidly racist, to the core.
Dr. Seuss Books Get Canceled
Apparently, 2021 was the year when the Left could no longer tolerate books written by Dr. Seuss, which nobody had complained about up to that point. The decision by the company to strike several of the popular children’s author’s works from publication was met with immediate, overwhelming backlash by anyone who still possessed basic reasoning skills.
The goal here was twofold – to cancel yet another part of traditional American culture, while simultaneously replacing it with Woke propaganda. This would play out later in the year when a massive education sector scandal broke out, where parents were outraged to find out that pornography was readily accessible in children’s schools.
Bill Maher Wakes Up From Wokeness
Bill Maher has always been a difficult celebrity to pin down when it comes to his opinions, but he clearly has no love for the Church of Woke, or its ideological zealots. In 2021, the popular comedian and talk show host began railing against the pervasive and toxic Wokeness that had infected – and hijacked – his own side of the political sphere.
The Right considered this a major cultural victory, especially given the fact that Maher is brave enough to have roundtable discussions with conservative voices on his own show. This kind of open dialogue terrifies the radical Left, and must be shut down at all costs.
Maher, for his part, doesn’t seem willing to let up, and his extensive reach has probably opened quite a few Left of Center eyes over the past 12 months.
Marvel And DC Propagandize Their Superheroes
Both Marvel and DC Comics decided to further alienate their fan base, and pave the way for anime’s continued market dominance, by rebranding their popular superheroes as Woke icons. Both companies took two of their signature heroes, Captain America and Superman, and decided to make them homosexual, because this is now the world we live in.
The attempt to push literally every single pop culture character into either homosexual, or at least bisexual territory is clichéd at this point, but the Left view sexual identity as a person’s sole defining characteristic.
There is a theory floating around that Leftist governments like the Democratic Party are subsidizing cultural Wokeness across the spectrum, and after watching the behavior of Marvel and DC, it’s a compelling argument.
The Grammys And Oscars Collapse
2021 was the year that broke popular American awards shows, and nobody tuned in, despite Covid-19 keeping most folks indoors. Both the Grammys and the Oscars met with abysmally nightmarish ratings, crashing headfirst into the concrete.
Naturally, Leftist pundits and apologists came out of the woodwork to sling every excuse they could think of, but the writing was already on the wall.
The decision to prioritize diversity and inclusion over talent and quality was bound to have an impact on our popular culture, and the poor ratings for both the Grammys and the Oscars proved that people were all-too-willing to tune out, and do something else. The backlash was felt across the board in 2021, even in popular sports leagues.
Activision Blizzard Goes Down In Flames
After kicking off the first quarter of 2021 by virtue-signaling about support for the Asian community, then banning a Hong Kong Hearthstone player who called out China for suppression and human rights abuses, Blizzard went from the frying pan, straight into the fire.
The company collapsed in on itself a few months later, after reports surfaced of awful work conditions, sexism and harassment going on behind its doors.
The company’s stock plunged badly as a result, which was exacerbated by poor fan reception to Diablo II Resurrected, various virtue-signaling changes to properties like World of Warcraft, and multiple resignations by prominent staffers.
Once again, the most vocal proponents of diversity, inclusion and equity continue to demonstrate their unwillingness to practice what they preach.
Ellen DeGeneres Cancelled
Popular comedian and far-Left activist Ellen DeGeneres built a personal brand that relied heavily on how nice a person she was. Indeed, her popular daytime show made this abundantly clear, but things weren’t so rosy behind the curtains.
Accusations from staffers regarding DeGeneres’ toxic and abusive attitude began to surface, and it wasn’t long before she was on the chopping block.
The show is reported to end in 2022, with DeGeneres claiming that it was “time” for her to move on. It’s patently obvious that the scandal has affected her brand image, and she’s preparing to make a carefully planned exit, in order to maintain a semblance of integrity.
How far that will fly with fans who felt cheated by her hypocrisy, remains to be seen.
LeBron James Cripples His Credibility
Temperamental NBA star LeBron James had trouble maintaining his credibility throughout 2021, thanks to a series of spectacular gaffes that had many longtime fans rethinking their impression of him.
James, a known race-baiter who once purportedly faked a hate crime involving his own residence, was quick to chime in on race relations via Twitter throughout the year, which led to a spectacular backlash.
Some of James’ most infamous blunders involved openly threatening a police officer who saved a young black girl from being knifed to death by another black girl, and his stance on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, of which he seemed astonishingly ignorant.
He kowtowed to the Chinese Communist Party, while ejecting fans from his games who were heckling him, which seemed juvenile, at the very least. Perhaps he was upset by the meteoric flop that was Space Jam 2.
YouTube Gives Itself A Free Speech Award
In one of the most spectacular and outrageous examples of Leftist denial and hypocrisy ever committed to history, YouTube decided it would be a great idea to give itself an award for, of all things…free speech.
Company CEO Susan Wojcicki praised herself and YouTube for its hard work in broadening the conversation, and allowing everyone to have an equal say, regardless of their opinion.
Naturally, this was met with mockery and laughter, right across the board. YouTube is one of the most censorious and dishonest media outlets of the modern age, and will routinely change its already vague rules in an attempt to silence and suppress anyone with a viewpoint it doesn’t like.
KFC’s Uber-Racist Faux Pas
Kentucky Fried Chicken’s Trinidad and Tobago locale made a huge boo-boo in May of 2021 when it ran with one of the most tone deaf and ill-conceived marketing campaigns in history.
The ad in question was a nod to domestic terrorist organization Black Lives Matter, a Marxist-trained ideological group with very little to say about black lives, and a lot more to say about ripping down capitalism, emptying all the jails, and destroying the nuclear family.
Regardless, KFC decided to showcase the “Black Power Drumstick,” which was a piece of fried chicken that cast the shadow of the iconic clenched fist, a known BLM symbol.
Ironically, that iconic image was created by the Black Consciousness Movement, which was started by brave men like Steve Biko during the South African apartheid era, and was regarded as a non-racist symbol that preached MLK-style unity between races.
KFC’s decision to capitalize on a prevalent racial stereotype involving African Americans and fried chicken is one for the history books, and speaks volumes once again about the inherent racism and tone-deafness of the Left.
Naturally, many on the Left attempted to make excuses for the ad, claiming it was just the prevalent humor of Trinidad and Tobago, which further exposes their hypocritical double-standard.
John Cena Licks The CCP’s Boots
For a man with a neck as thick as a rainforest tree trunk, it’s a wonder how former WWE wrestler turned actor John Cena has a spine capable of supporting it. In 2021, Cena essentially got down on his hands and knees, and apologized to the Chinese Communist Party for “mistakenly” referring to Taiwan as an actual, independent country.
His posted apology video received instant backlash, with many claiming that Cena was both a coward, and a sellout to the human rights abuses of the Chinese Communist Party.
This came hot on the heels of a viral video showing a WHO member abruptly shutting off a video call with an investigator who asked him whether he acknowledged Taiwan’s existence, or not.
Leftist Educators Teach 1st Grade Children How To Masturbate Properly
If ever there was a case for private schooling, and a complete retooling of the U.S. public education system, this was it. The incident in question involved propaganda material being shown to 1st grade schoolchildren, which showed them how to masturbate properly.
This was part of a broader agenda on behalf of the Leftist-dominated education system to introduce children to pornography, and sexualize them from a young age.
There was a time when the Left said they would never, ever come for our children, but the mask is now off, and they’re doing it in plain sight. Coincidentally, this kind of radicalized sexuality and gender theory propaganda would score Republican Glenn Youngkin a massive victory in Virginia, and the ripple effects are still being felt across the country.
Kevin Smith Blows It
Several prominent Hollywood Leftists found themselves in the hot seat in 2021, but Kevin Smith was the guy who got a head start. His handling of the popular Masters of the Universe property for Netflix became a parody unto itself, with Smith getting caught in his own repeated lies about the nature of the show, his knowledge of the property, and how the story would progress.
Fan reaction (and backlash) was immediate, and Masters of the Universe tanked with viewers. The decision to kill off key characters (including He-Man) to pave the way for a half-shaved headed Teela as the new hero, was standard Hollywood fare up to that point.
What was truly unforgivable was how the show was initially marketed – as He-Man’s grand return. It was anything but, and Smith endured a meltdown over the scrutiny and fan backlash.
Marvel’s MCU Hit A Brick Wall
Avengers: Endgame signaled the end of a massive story arc for the MCU, and topping it was a near-impossible task. Kevin Feige and co. did little to make things easier on themselves, especially when they announced that Phase IV of the MCU would prioritize Wokeness over anything else, including, apparently, a good story and likeable characters.
The losses were staggering, and came one after the other. Black Widow came in well below expectations, Shang-Chi barely made back its budget and turned a minuscule profit, and The Eternals went down in searing flames. Things weren’t any better on Disney+, either.
Fans tuned out of Falcon & The Winter Soldier during the second episode, WandaVision failed to ignite any excitement, Loki bombed, and Hawkeye went straight into the dustbin. Only the earth-shattering success of the completely non-Woke Spider-Man: No Way Home managed to make waves, and it’s doubtful Disney, or Marvel will get the message.
Elderly Star Wars Memorablia Store Owner Takes On The Entire Left…And Wins
In August, news began surfacing about an elderly Star Wars memorablia shop owner who was doxxed, harassed and threatened by unhinged Leftist radicals, following an altercation with a biological male transgender activist. Rather than bend the knee and apologize, the comic book shop owner boldly stood his ground, giving a collective middle finger to the entirety of the Left.
The irony is that this individual received massive, overwhelming support from the public, and it was enough to turn the tide back in his favor. The threats turned out to be meaningless, and the Left backed down when they realized that he would not budge. It’s a lesson to everyone in 2022 – the only person who can cancel you, is yourself.
George Takei Wishes Death On The Unvaccinated
Washed up Star Trek actor George Takei has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons over the last few years, becoming increasingly radical as the years go by. It all came to a culmination in 2021, when he decided to go full Wil Wheaton, and start advocating for death upon those he disagreed with politically.
The targets of his ire were the unvaccinated, who Takei claimed should not receive medical priority in hospitals if they get sick. This, of course, would force doctors and caregivers to turn their backs on the Hippocratic Oath.
Second, it isn’t clear what Takei’s stance is on people who overeat to the point of obesity, fornicate to the point of contracting AIDS, smoke to the point of lung cancer, or drink to the point of liver failure. Granted, consistency was never Takei’s strong suit.
Simu Liu Gets A Free Pass From Hollywood
If the Simu Liu debacle taught us anything, it’s that the hypocrites on the Left will always look the other way, as long as you’re useful to their ideology. Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo learned this the hard way, going from media darling and desired Presidential candidate, to a social pariah who became a liability to the Left, and the Democratic Party.
Enter Simu Liu, the star of the barely-made-it Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. In between virtue-signaling and attacking the fandom over Twitter, Liu forgot to purge his past Reddit comments, which resurfaced to bite him straight in the posterior.
Liu claimed that he was “sympathetic” to pedophiles, after playing one in a show, and claimed it was a “mutation in the genome, the same as homosexuality.” The account was deleted in a frenzy, but the posts were archived for the sake of posterity.
Nevertheless, Simu continues to be treated like a darling on the Left, despite his views about the LGBTQ community.
Dr. Fauci’s Documentary Gets Destroyed
Dr. Anthony Fauci has become synonymous with bureaucratic corruption over the last year, thanks in large part to a combination of elements.
He brazenly lied to Congress regarding the nature of gain-of-function research in China, he acknowledged openly that he continued wearing masks after being vaccinated, for the sake of political theater, and he has gotten every single possible thing wrong about the Covid-19 pandemic, since the start.
It was no wonder then, that public backlash would lead to his outrageous Magnolia Pictures documentary getting excoriated by practically everyone. The film currently sits at a 2% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is living, breathing proof that nobody takes the highest paid bureaucratic mouthpiece in Congress seriously, anymore.
Ben & Jerry’s Massive Backfire
Ice cream aficionados Ben & Jerry really stepped in it in 2021, thanks to an anti-semitic stance that soon betrayed its own hypocrisy. The company’s refusal to sell ice cream in Israel didn’t seem to faze a single person, seeing as how they could simply buy another brand.
Next, they railed against the supposed evils of “voter suppression” in Republican States, despite the fact that Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware has tougher voting laws than anything put on the books by Republicans in the last year.
Yet, Ben & Jerry’s believed it was doing real yeoman’s work for righteousness and truth. That is, until a disastrous Axios on HBO interview surfaced, showing the pair getting grilled by a journalist who wondered why the company was still selling ice cream in Georgia and Texas, due to voting and abortion laws.
The awkward silence was horrifying for the Left, and the resulting “I don’t know” was absolutely gob smacking.
The Dave Chappocalypse That Wasn’t
Dave Chappelle ruffled the feathers and earned the scathing ire of the radical Left when his Netflix special aired, showing him standing up for J.K. Rowling and “Team Terf,” a reference to the basic fact that biological gender is a reality, and not a social construct, as claimed by the Left.
Chappelle’s views were shared by the majority of the country (and the world, writ large) who understand that males and females actually exist, and nothing is going to change that.
The threats and the proclamations of justice and accountability came swift and hard from the Left, but in the end, they amounted to little more than a drop in the bucket.
Netflix refused to cave, the ensuing protests were microscopic in size, and threats of a mass walkout by Netflix employees went over with all the bombast and volume of a Simon’s Cat video on YouTube.
Santa Inc. Buried In An Avalanche
Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman decided it would be a great idea to create the most un-funny show in history, all in an attempt to troll anyone who isn’t a rabid, radical Leftist. It ended as one would expect – with the execrable Santa Inc. getting savaged by audiences, while critics refused to touch it with a ten foot pole.
Naturally, it was an excuse for Seth Rogen (who insists that watching your car get broken into 15 times is normal), to go on a manufactured outrage crusade.
It was yet another example of how radical Wokeness completely nullifies and destroys the concept of comedy, much like Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake venom obliterates red blood cells.
Sarah Silverman seems to have jumped off the sinking ship completely, but Rogen held out for a bit longer, at least until the humor of watching Santa Inc. implode on itself like a dwarf star had lost its allure, and everyone moved on.
Jussie Smollett Faces The Music
Ex-Empire and Alien: Covenant actor Jussie Smollett finally got his just desserts in 2021 when a jury found him guilty on 5 out of 6 counts for perpetrating a racial hate crime hoax in Chicago.
The entire tale was preposterous from day one, yet maniacal and delusional Leftist fake news outlets, and prominent Democrats in Congress pounced on the story, in order to propagate the false narrative of systemic racism in America.
The Smollett hoax was living proof that the demand for racism on the part of the Left far exceeds available supply, by an astronomical margin. Smollett faked the hate crime in order to gain political and social clout, which he hoped would lead to a bigger paycheck.
This was part and parcel of a larger Leftist grifting scheme in America, perpetrated by race hustlers like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Ibram Kendi, Derrick Bell, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Robin D’Angelo. Fake racism is still a highly lucrative business in America, though Smollett’s story was so asinine that even Michelle Obama couldn’t undo the damage.
Steven Spielberg Gets Woke, And Goes Broke
Besides remaking a movie that nobody asked for, Steven Spielberg decided it would be a great idea to embrace Hollywood Wokeness in an attempt to gain political clout. As such, he refused to subtitle non-English dialogue in his remake of West Side Story, which left many people scratching their heads in confusion.
Needless to say, it didn’t do a lot for the film’s box office numbers. West Side Story cratered with a $40 million dollar worldwide take, versus a $100 million dollar budget.
It failed to gain any traction with the Latino/Latina community, either. Spielberg’s use of the “Latinx,” which is a racist and offensive label, did little to change that.
In the end, Spielberg became yet another example of a Hollywood elite who pandered to Wokeness in order to feel virtuous, only for it to backfire in spectacular fashion.
Mark Ruffalo Cozies Up To Pedophiles, And Dunks On Tornado Victims
Few Hollywood stars are as brazenly offensive, intellectually deficient, and morally bankrupt as MCU star Mark Ruffalo. His Twitter feed is littered with every conceivable social faux pas imaginable, and some that we can’t imagine, even on our best day.
It was no surprise then, that he fawned over Joseph Rosenbaum, a convicted child rapist who used the racial N-word slur on the night of his death in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Ruffalo referred to Rosenbaum as “Jo-Jo,” a term of endearment, while excoriating Kyle Rittenhouse, Rosenbaum’s intended murder victim. It wasn’t the last time Ruffalo would stick his foot in his own mouth.
The recent Kentucky tornado that killed more than 80 people was a perfect excuse for Ruffalo to dunk on the dead, tweeting out a ridiculous insinuation that the tornado could have been avoided, if only radical climate change activists were put in charge of everything.
This kind of grandstanding in the wake of a horrific tragedy is nothing new to the Left, who believe that dead corpses always make for a convenient soapbox.
LeVar Burton Goes Full Racist
Nothing says “anti-racism” quite like admitting you’re a full-blown racist, which is exactly what LeVar Burton decided to do in 2021. In one particularly shocking tweet, LeVar claimed that he assumed the worst about white people, because, in his opinion, they assumed the worst about him.
It’s the ultimate antithesis to how human beings are supposed to treat each other, yet here we are. One has to wonder what was going through LeVar’s head at the time. This was not what racial unifiers like Martin Luther King Jr. and Steve Biko fought for, nor is it how anyone is supposed to treat another human being.
The cancer of Woke Leftism has turned another Star Trek alum into an acolyte for hatred and division, and it’s hard to watch.
The Matrix Resurrections Dies On Arrival
While Spider-Man: No Way Home was busy burning up the box office, another mega-popular franchise made a return. The Matrix Resurrections was touted by director Lana Wachowski as both a return to form, and a vehicle for “change,” though the irony might have been lost along the way.
The film cratered immediately upon debut, barely able to muster $68 million worldwide, after almost a half-month.
The film was not the Woke monstrosity many had feared, but it was a far cry even from The Matrix Revolutions, previously the least-liked entry in the series.
The team behind the film went on the attack, making absurd claims that they were going to reclaim the term “Red-Pill” due to its insinuation as a trans allegory (which nobody buys), but the real travesty was just how bland, boring, and soulless the film actually was.
Demi Lovato Goes Off The Deep End
Demi Lovato is widely regarded as one of the most unstable celebrities in the world of mainstream music, and it doesn’t help when she starts attaching herself to projects that are parodies unto themselves. Her new documentary series Unidentified With Demi Lovato features the unhinged singer supposedly speaking to the dead, which is about as certifiable as it gets.
In one cringeworthy scene, she sings to the ghost in her usual fare, then proclaims that she got a “standing ovation” at the end. It’s truly beyond the pale, and laughable to the core, but it’s disappointing to know that there are people out there who will watch the show, believe in it, and refuse to admit that Demi Lovato is in need of a straight-jacket and a padded cell.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Gets The Ultimate Snub
Paul Feig was appalled when he learned that the upcoming Ghostbusters box set collection would not feature his universally loathed 2016 feminist remake. The response from Feig was as expected, and Sony eventually caved to the outrage, but with one small, and quite humorous caveat.
It turns out that the film will be included in the collection…as a digital download. This is counterproductive in so many ways, particularly because it shines a light on just how ostracized the 2016 version has become in comparison to the main universe films. Whether Feig thinks it’s a victory, or a defeat, is anyone’s guess.
Woke Climate Change Allegory Bombs, And Even Critics Hate It
Leonardo DiCaprio recently starred in the disastrous Don’t Look Up, an allegory for climate change involving a comet destined to strike Earth, whilst the populace pretends to ignore it. It was so awful that even critics and the mainstream Leftist media hated it, which was about as terrible a predicament as could be expected for the lead star, and the director.
The film was written by David Sirota, former speechwriter for Bernie Sanders, a man who never met a Communist dictatorship he didn’t love. What is more surprising is just how ill-received the film was within elitist circles.
Only 55% of critics liked the film, which is an abysmal turnout for a film with such a politically convenient message as this one. Naturally, the excuse was a predictable one – if you don’t like it, it’s because you’re stupid.
J.K. Rowling Voted Person Of The Year
In an act of spectacular irony, the British newspaper The Guardian decided to run an online poll asking people to vote for their Person of the Year award. The Guardian, a known radical far-Left outlet, could not have predicted on their best day that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling would win the award, by an epic landslide.
Rather than follow through with fans’ wishes, the Guardian abruptly canceled the entire voting form, leaving a message that read “This form has been deactivated and is closed to any further submissions.”
It was a monumental way to close off 2021, by signaling just how hypocritical and self-destructive the Left’s campaign of cancel culture and censorship really is.
Bill S. Preston, Woketard
On a sadder note, 2021 ended with Bill & Ted actor Alex Winter acting like an entitled, out of touch, elitist snob, by suggesting that anyone who disagrees with a movie critic is doing so because of a lack of education, and a low I.Q.
This is standard-fare Leftism – insult anyone who disagrees with you, rather than engage them in open debate. It’s also why the backlash against the Left will continue to accelerate, going into 2022.
Nevertheless, watching Bill Preston spout this kind of pointless, self-defeating, childish nonsense is NON, NON-NON…NON…HEINOUS, to say the least. Let’s hope fan favorite Bill & Ted star Keanu Reeves continues to stay the course, and refuse to insult the fans who continue to enjoy his work.
