Asshole and Hero of the Week
Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah Mclachlan. Okay, maybe not.
But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings.
So we have taken the task upon ourselves to bring back the epic binary of “good” versus “bad,” “right” versus “wrong,” and “virtuous versus “evil.”
We humbly present to you: Asshole and Hero of the week.
Asshole: 4Chan Hacker
After Emma Watson’s epic “HeForShe” speech she has been targeted by the anonymous 4Chan hacker responsible for the other celebrity nude leaks in the form of this creepy website.
We can assume that by being “next” Watson will be the next celebrity to have her nude photos leaked on 4Chan by this lonely neckbeard.
Why this person feels the need to engage in such pointless fuckery is beyond me. Is this a human who hates celebrities? Female celebrities? Women in power? Women in general? Does he have a thing against Hermione?
We will probably never know.
Hero: Charlo Greene
Charlo Greene is the reporter for Alaksa’s KTVA-TV who quit on air during her Sunday coverage of the Alaksa Cannabis Club, an organization which (unbeknownst to KTVA-TV) she is the owner of.
“Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” she said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
Greene maintains that her intention was not to offend: “I wanted to draw attention to this issue. And the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real … most patients didn’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get patients their medicine…If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made,” she said.
If you don’t know the benefits of medical marijuana and/or you believe this woman is just a crazy, THC-addled misfit, then well….I don’t know what to tell you. Greene’s move was an elegant, hilarious and effective means of activism.
