SOMETHING HAS BEEN BUGGING ME TODAY... His corpse is still warm, but people are already quick to piss on his grave. The exact same people are expecting compassion when they suffer a blow in life. I had it up to here with this bullshit.
Newsflash: I am collectively mourning a legendary creator, one of the last great fashion designers and visionairies of our time. It's impious to call him out on his shortcomings. A human being is not one dimensional, a human being has a character consisting of at least two poles.
One being his work/creation and input in society, the other his personal view of the world- his/her view on politics, ethics, his social background/ sexuality etc... A celebrity has an image, that is a distorted version of him/herself shared with the world. Judging someone by statements often twisted and taken out of context is dangerous and shallow.
None of us really knew him. Even if some of us did, it was just a limited version of the real persona. One can never know a person. There is always something mysterious or unspoken, a specific event or a fallout, misunderstanding that can distort our view on someone. Blindly following or adoring someones personality is sick too, because it takes away the healthy judgement. Putting him/her on a pedestal like saint is stupid too.
Everyone has demons, fears or shortcomings BUT to point it out to others on his day of passing, just to gain an edgy attitude,fishing for likes is tacky, impious and below any courtesy.
I blocked some 'friends', deleted others and wrote DM to those I cared about,but who have disappointed me today. It has happened last when Prince passed. Then I recall disgusting comments/memes when MJ died.
We don't have idols anymore. A world without idols/heroes is a grey world full of fear and confusion. I hope this time will pass, but we need to raise our voices and call out the bullshit,when we hear it.
If you agree, your a kindred soul. If you don't, just fuck off really. I don't have time for destructive/twisted folk.
