I am upset, in my opinion. It proves my point that Hellyweird will always protect their own. If you don't tow the line, Hellyweird will tar and feather you non-stop.
Hellyweird felt Kevin Hart's tweets were very offensive (I didn't find them offensive, in contrast to James Gunn's tweets), but completely ignored similar tweets from Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, and Chelsea Handler.
I guess the MAGA SHites' seething hatred of Liberal Hollyweird is balanced out with STeVE's shameless fawning and ass-kissing of any and all bit players, accountants and technicians who hustled their way into the glamorous industry of Tinseltown.
I grew up on 1970s hockey, and enjoyed the rough and tough physical style of play back then. The game was about intimidation and almost every team had a few players who could handle the rough stuff. If someone took a cheap shot or sticked someone, they would have to answer for it and if need be, the benches would empty. The game now has become European hockey - helmets, face shields, incessant dirty stick work, advertising along the boards, etc. As John Davidson told me once, its about as exciting as watching two guys fish. In the 70s, I watched hockey 7 nights a week, either in person or on television. Friday nights, there weren't any local NHL games so my friends and I would drive to see either WHA or AHL games. Now, I can't watch five minutes without getting bored. They've completely wrecked the sport, IMO.

I just read this today. Will a 90 minute classic eventually whittle down to 60 minutes & down to 30 minutes because something is considered socially unacceptable each year? Movies, TV shows, books & music should be exempt from such editing because they represent the times they were made! My opinion. Toy Story 2 Censored Scene
Certain groups, with a certain mindset and a desperate need to be offended, or at least demonstrate how virtuous they are by showcasing their outrage, have been pressing the right people and changing the right minds to the point of censorship as you describe. There is a term use to describe such actions.
The part I find dubious is what they allow without batting an eye, while being offended at many things that are blatant jokes, satire, or other methods of humor.
Certain groups, with a certain mindset and a desperate need to be offensive, or at least demonstrate how victimized they feel by showcasing their outrage, have been pressing the right people and changing the right minds to the point of gaslighting the population at large.
Pathetic! I remember this joke. I thought absolutely nothing of it. It remains harmless in my eyes today.
And THIS is why I never have been and never will be in support of a certain you-know-what movement.
this is only the beginning and will get worse...happens when you give nutjobs control...ppl need to grow a pair and put a stop to this sickness...sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me...remember that one? now names/words will not only hurt me they will ruin/destroy my life...
This is going to be one of those situations where I'm not sure what's going to be funnier, the fact that someone felt that scene had to be cut or all the people declaring the end of the world because the scene was cut. Should be a good one either way though :laugh:
I know a guy that flirts with the ladies like that. Every one of those ladies were never offended & found it humorous! Some of them flirted back because they wanted to join in on the fun. They've even thanked him for enlightening their day! The scene was put in as part of a film & has been part of the film for many years. Leave it in & leave it alone!!! People need to get back to reality! Film, books & music represent a time & place in history so it should not be tampered with. My opinion.
It is the equivalent of book burning.
The past should not be judged by new contemporary standards.
We shouldn't forget or edit the past, we must examine and learn from it.
It's a terrible, terrible trend that I don't think is going to end anytime soon. Corporations are at the mercy now of online mobs and have begun censoring any material that violates certain worldviews.
Most troubling was the Simpsons' producers completely removing the Michael Jackson episode from circulation, long after the man is dead. It was the most reactionary response possible to the HBO documentary.
It's one reason why I hold on to physical media.
I’m tired of the hypersensitivity. Here’s how I see it:
In the 60s, we “hated” something.
In the 80s, we “weren’t happy” with something
In the 90s we felt “challenged” by something
In the New Millennium, we’re “allergic” to everything.

It's good that people do freak out about such censorship though; otherwise it just further emboldens the neo-bluehairs.
Next step: updated PC versions of the Toy Story films with new, "modern" tint for Woody and Buzz
This kind of crap had been going on for a while. Many cartoon dvd's have been edited to protect the delicate sensibilities of a bunch of crybabies. Didn't Disney edit out Pecos Bill's cigarette a few years back? I believe the dvd's of Tom and Jerry have been edited for PC reasons as well.
Howcum we have a PG movie rating...but, we don't have a PC...? :mad:
That scene is creepy, somethings wrong if you don't feel queasy and to stick with it gives tacit approval to such behaviour.

Something wrong if that scene on its own makes you feel queasy and any adult should know that to depict something is not to endorse it.

First they came for the sexual harassers, and I did not speak out, because I was not a sexual harasser.
Then they came for the Beatles.
No doubt The Beatles : Abbey Road cigarette will be airbrushed out of the cover for this years 50th Anniversary.
And woe to "Run For Your Life" from Rubber Soul in some distant future.
For I Want to Hold Your Hand's 20th anniversary in 1984, a ciggie was airbrushed out of Paul's hand by Capitol.
IIRC Capitol wanted wanted to airbrush the cigarette from the cover of the release of Nat King Cole's Just One Of Those Things that our host worked on, but they successfully argued against it.
There is a 1987 CD pressing out there with the cigarette airbrushed out so they've been thinking of stuff like this so they've been thinking of this for quite some time.
Hmmm.. I watched that scene I laughed a lot.. Good luck trying erase that now that it's been brought up to everybody s attention.. real smart..:crazy::laugh: I can buy used copy of toy story original release on ebay or thrift store
That scene made me queasy 20 years ago. Post-Weinstein, etc., who can blame them for wanting to delete it. They're in the business of making money, not in the business of providing cheap laughs to dirty old men.
