You know, I’m all for voting yes to Laverne Cox, but if you insisted on voting against Jared Leto, and you didn’t insist on voting against this motherfucker, then you’re not a real activist. It’s as simple as that. Like, it makes me physically ill that you people spend more time demonizing people like Leto and Macklemore, and not the fucking dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. You people are pathetic and you all sicken me.
NNNNNooooooo?!?!??! The Time 100 is for the 100 most important, influential, or change causing people in the past year. Laverne Cox is important because she’s brilliantly advancing trans rights and awareness just by existing in the public spotlight, plus she’s amazingly outspoken about it to boot. Kim Jong Un is freaking important to the world at large this year; he keeps trying to start a war and is shooting missles off out his ass.
What did Leto or Macklemore do? Leto was grossly miscast in a movie about a trans woman that he had no business acting in, and Macklemore seemed to think he was the straight while rapping savior of the gays when really no one wanted to have anything to do with him. So yeah, Kim Jong Un and Laverne Cox should be on here, and hell no, Jared Leto and Macklemore should not.
Man I don’t think this dude should be in it. I don’t think leto and macklemore should be either, but this dude is like not only the worst as a person but is also the most idiotic and tantrumy five year old diaper wetter and if ur gonna put a dictator on a magazine at least put one on that isn’t a little bitch
Yeah but like, this little bitch is trying to start a war with South Korea and if he attacks them then the US retaliates and then China probably gets involved and everything spirals out of control very quickly. He might be a idiot but he’s a damn important one
Man see I’ve been worried about that but honestly I think he’s all talk. This kind of shit has been going on forever with him and his daddy.
I agree that the issues are very important because what if it isn’t just all talk, u know? But Time could easily bring awareness about the issues without putting this guy in a spotlight that he probably just wants to be in anyway
Well ok, but it’s not like he’s going to read the Time 100 and let the fame go to his head. And it’s not like the Time 100 is going to build him up as a great guy. I mean, he was in it last year and look what they said about him then: http://time100.time.com/2013/04/18/time-100/slide/kim-jong-un/ For those who don’t want to read the whole thing the first line is “North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un is the world’s youngest head of state - and behaves like it.” They go on to call him on his shit just like you did and call him a loser but also stress that he probably has nukes and that the world is on edge about that
Hell, Osama Bin Laden was in the Time 100 in 2007 and he was worse than Kim here. It’s not a list of good people doing good things, it’s a list of people to keep an eye on this year, for any reason.
