Ariana Grande's Manager Tells Little People He's Combatting Terrorism with "Laughter"...
In recognizable fashion, celebrities have shared thoughtless and ignoramus-coated posts on the Manchester bombing (see Katy Perry After Manchester Bombing, Wants to ‘Coexist without Borders and SAY WHAT?! BBC’s Katty Kay on Manchester: ‘Europe has to get used to this…’). Ariana Grande’s manager is no exception. This man has 4.1 million Twitter followers. I weep for humanity.
Tonight I got home and took my parents out to dinner. Korean bbq. We drank and ate and laughed with the tables next to us. I experienced joy— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495690523.0
I experienced joy for the first time in days. And I remembered...we r free. We are all different but we r free to enjoy eachother's company— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495690590.0
I will honor those that r lost by living each day full. Full of fun, full of laughter, full of joy. I welcome the differences of my neighbor— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495690735.0
the wish of terrorism is to take away that feeling of freedom and joy. No. That is my answer. No. We cant allow it. Fear cannot rule the day— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495690783.0

With extraordinary evil we must fight with extraordinary greatness. Fight on. Goodnight world. Tomorrow I live full.— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495691190.0
I will honor all of u by laughing loving and living. Living full for every wonderful innocent child whose life was taken too soon.— Scooter Braun (@Scooter Braun) 1495691370.0
Scooter is all about kicking it back with “Korean bbq” and some aged Yamazaki. Basking in the light of his not dead family. Don’t forget about his reference to Syrian children. Ten SJW brownie points for the diversity references. Seven points for vague platitudes about "standing strong" and "fighting back."

Aw, sounds so lovely. The best revenge, after all, is a "life well lived." Except Scooter's version of fighting back means returning to life as it was: laughing, having fun, managing multimillionaires, driving posh cars. How brave of him. He won't actually do anything to bring justice to those who died. He'll just pour another glass of expensive wine, probably in a house nestled safely and soundly in a gated community of his choosing. And when he goes out to manage his musical millionaires, he'll be comfortably surrounded by armed security.
Unlike those Scooter preached at with grammatically incompetent pomposity, Scooter can prance about safely. After all, more people die in car crashes than terrorist attacks. An irrelevant fact to organized groups murdering people in the name of Allah.
Perpetual safety provided by armed guards and security cleared safe spaces it not a luxury enjoyed by those who are being targeted by terrorists. Terrorists tend to pick helpless, easy targets. Not politicians and not celebrities. Exceptions to every rule, sure. But think back now. Who have often been the victims of terrorism? It's not the super wealthy. It's not the political elites safely ensconced in well protected ivory towers. It's "regular, little" people.
But please, celebrities and your managers, continue to lecture the rest of us on how to live our lives in the face of terrorism. After that, check your elitism.
Rich, protected celebrity ignorance never ends . . .
