i find this situation frustrating. there’s a lot of talk about ‘giving people space to grow and change’, but also he is 51 years old currently, and his estimated net worth is $40million. i really find it hard to care about him being fired, even in wildly disingenuous circumstances.
people talk as if 10 years ago is ancient history, but he was 41 and making rape jokes and AIDS jokes in a public forum (content warning for exactly what it says). it sucks that a bad faith right wing campaign is what took him down, but also, maybe, he should, fuck off, actually? this is not someone’s high school tweets being dredged up, this is a full-grown adult being held accountable for his words and actions.
