I generally don’t do “celebrity says something stupid about something bad happening” stories, because there are too many stupid things to chose from after something bad happens. Man’s gotta do more than document celebrity stupidity, know what I mean? Plus, a lot of them I’m sure just see everyone else saying something. Then just feel like they should say something, too. Originality isn’t much of a thing in celebrity world of ditz and glam.
But this Ariana Grande tweet stood out. See if you can spot the problem.
My heart is breaking for Las Vegas. We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism.
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) October 2, 2017
Why does Ariana think she’s an expert on terrorism? She had a concert that was used for an actual terrorist attack (see ISIS Claims Credit for Manchester Attack. Leftists Worry About… Islamophobia and Manchester Bomber’s FAMILY Has Terrorist Ties). This essentially makes her Claire Danes’ character in Homeland.
Also, from what I can tell, ARIANA NEVER CALLED THE MANCHESTER CONCERT ATTACK “TERRORISM.” I just spent some time on the Google machine, and nothing came up. So.
The closest Ariana came to labeling of the Manchester Terrorist Attack as a “terrorist attack” was Grande’s manager. After someone set off a bomb at a concert in the name of Islam, her manager said he was going to fight back with laughter. That’ll show ’em.
What happened in Las Vegas was a horrific act of human evil. At the writing of this post, the motive is still unknown. So it could turn out to be terrorism (must have a political/religious motivation), we still don’t know.
It’s hard to take a leftist calling it terrorism seriously when she refuses to call actual terrorism…terrorism. Then conveniently ties in her demands for gun control in the same breath. Maybe she should stick to what she knows and leave the big thoughts to the adults.
