2016 wasn’t a particularly good year for celebrities. A number of them passed away, some at relatively young ages, including of course, Carrie Fisher.
Social justice warriors pounced on another celebrity, Steve Martin, who tweeted out a heartfelt tribute to the dearly departed Princess Leia, saying:
“When I was a young man, Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. She turned out to be witty and bright as well.”
Martin nailed it. Fisher was an attractive woman, but for those wild and crazy SJWs, he earned a world of hurt for referring to Fisher as a "beautiful creature."
SJWs descended upon Martin on social media, blasting him for insensitivity and sexism.
Then, Martin did the worst thing possible when dealing with Generation Snowflake: he capitulated to their outrage by deleting his tweet.
Moving forward in 2017, can we all stop apologizing to these odious soldiers of political correctness? Let’s make 2017 the year in which surrender is not an option.
If you really want to hit these twerps where it hurts, either ignore them or laugh at them. If you acquiesce to their demands with an apology or the removal of a tweet or a Facebook posting or agreeing to sensitivity training, this only empowers them. No matter what you do to try to appease them, it’s never enough: they’ll still hate you.
Stand up for free speech or continue to apologize to a confederacy of idiots who seemingly exist only to take offence about something.
