NOTE: This one was requested by Gabgaberox.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

It was already suggested.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

It was already suggested.

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Yeah. I know that, but it wasn't added yet. That's why decided to reupload the suggestion.

Seewater514 (talkcontribs)

Actually she is on the list, at #30.

Anyways here's two suggestions of mine that went unnoticed:

Kendrick Lamar (rapper): Although he showed support to Obama, he chooses to remain apolitical since he believes his vote doesn't matter.

Arnold Schwarzenegger (the Terminator from the Terminator franchise): Stated that climate change should be dealt with immediately instead of politicizing the topic. Has no problem with people supporting candidates of the opposite party, stating that it is "not only acceptable to choose your country over your party – it is your duty.”

Stephenfisher2001 (talkcontribs)

Happy to hear that Arnold Schwarzenegger did it right!  :)

EijiZeBoi (talkcontribs)

Arnold Schwarzenegger is now Greta Thunbos approved.

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Ok, then.

Edunk5 (talkcontribs)

Jim Jarmusch (film director): His films are known for featuring characters from various backgrounds for which he has created, most notably in Mystery Train whose main characters include a Japanese couple, an Italian woman, and an English man. David Gordon Green (film director): Just like Jarmusch, his films are known for featuring characters from various backgrounds for which he has created, most notably in George Washington which has a mostly black cast.

NintenDylan64 (talkcontribs)

Marjane Satrapi (author of Persepolis): Her book Persepolis, is highly politically incorrect, as it tackles her life during the time of the Islamic Revolution, showing some highly political subjects such as classism, Marxism, communism, etc. It also depicts violence, brutal torture, bombing of countries, religious extremism, uses profanity, and has dark humor.

I see our suggestions were not added

Jessenator2 (talkcontribs)

Bradley Cooper (Chris Kyle from American Sniper and Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel movies): Has denied that American Sniper was a political movie, preferring it to be “about a man - a character study.”

Dennis Quaid (Tuck Pendleton from Innerspace): Is politically independent, has voted for both Democrats and Republicans and is open to different points of view.

Ang Lee (director of Brokeback Mountain, Gemini Man, Hulk (2003), Life of Pi and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon): Said China’s boycott of Taiwan awards show a loss no matter the red carpet or the films and politics are an aspect we don’t want to see, but we have to face it because we live in this world.

Seewater514’s suggestions:

Removal suggestion:

Ron Perlman: On the opposite list with a stronger reason. He's at #32

Stephen King (author of many books such as Misery, It, and The Shining): Despite being very left leaning, he believes that quality is far more important than diversity in art, stating the following: "I would never consider diversity in the matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong."


Batman129’s suggestion:

Removal suggestion:

Ethan Klein (59): Supports the Leaving Neverland documentary and labeled Michael Jackson as a child molester in addition to praising Oprah Winfrey’s approach on the topic and calling the backlash against against Oprah, Wade Robinson, and James Safechuck “horrifying”.

Gabgaberox’s suggestion:

Gabrielle Union (Former America's Got Talent judge): Has exposed the racist and toxic culture of NBC and America's Got Talent.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Bradley Cooper was also Jackson "Jack" Maine in the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Also Batman129, you repeated against twice and it's Robson not Robinson.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Gabrielle also exposed NBC and AGT's lack of diversity.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Can you tell more about this supposed racism and toxicity Gabrielle Union exposed? Because the pointer as it is currently written doesn't say much.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

The racism thing that Gabrielle exposed like a white male contestant imitated Beyoncé and painting their hands black. Has expressed concerns about Jay Leno's joke of Koreans eating dogs (referring to a painting about Simon Cowell and his dogs).

Batman129 (talkcontribs)

Jay Leno joking about Koreans eating dogs Isn’t a example of racist or toxic culture.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Anything else?

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Sharon Osburne called the show a "boys club" cause the women aren't as paid as the men and Howard Stern slammed Simon for being behind Gabrielle's and Julianne's infamous firing saying "He sets it up that the men stay no matter how old, fat, ugly and talentless they are". "But what he manages to do on all his shows is he constantly replaces the hot chicks with hotter and younger chicks, which is so obvious".

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Do I need to say more?

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Actually yes, I wish you could find some sources to confirm what these persons say. In the meantime she is still on the page but it would be better to find material so that we can make her statements more solid.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

I got the statements from the Youtube channel Spill.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Well AGT fired Gabrielle cause her hairstyles are "too black" for the viewers.

Batman129 (talkcontribs)

Thanks jessnator

it’s kinda sad to see someone who constantly criticized SJWs in his videos end up becoming one.

Jessenator2 (talkcontribs)

No problem.

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Ethan Klein is a removal and to be moved on the opposite list.

Jessenator2 (talkcontribs)
LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Batman129 (talkcontribs)

Removal Suggestion

Billie Eilish (131): Said the rap genre is nothing but “lying and posturing” which received a lot of criticism.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Well, an opinion about a musical genre is not something that deserves a removal.

Batman129 (talkcontribs)

whoops.

how about this?

John Cena (WWE star): Has done numerous charity work and granted more then 600 Make A Wish Foundation wishes.

Seewater514 (talkcontribs)

Rami Malek (actor): Aside from being openly against capitalism, he is mostly apolitical. Supports multiple charities that help fight severe health conditions such as HIV/AIDS.

Jaden628 (talkcontribs)

Danny DeVito: His comedic career is highly politically incorrect.

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Of course, Danny DeVito is better known as the Penguin from Batman Returns.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

I'd love to add him, if we could find something specific it would be better.

Jessenator2 (talkcontribs)

Kurt Vonnegut is dead.

Here are two suggestions that I came across:

5
LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, the Hobbit trilogy, King Kong (2005) and Braindead): The humor in his films (especially his early ones) is known for being extremely macabre and twisted, and as such, it makes fun of political correctness.

Forest Whitaker (Idi Amin from The Last King of Scotland, Zuri from Black Panther, Saw Guerrera from Star Wars and Colonel G. T. Weber from Arrival): Works with UNESCO as a Goodwill Ambassador to support and develop initiatives that empower youths and keep them from entering or remaining in cycles of violence. Founded the Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative (WPDI), a non-governmental organization in 2012, with the intention of implementing peace-building programs in conflict-affected communities in the different regions of the world, including Africa, Latin America and the United States.

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Stephen King (author of many books such as Misery, The Green Mile, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, The Mist, It and The Shining): Despite being very left leaning, he believes that quality is far more important than diversity in art, stating the following: "I would never consider diversity in the matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong".

Seewater514 (talkcontribs)

He has already been added, at #216.

Batman129 (talkcontribs)

Stephen King is already on the list

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

I didn't know it.

Seewater514 (talkcontribs)

Speaking of Stephen King, he should probably be moved back to the opposite list. Not only did he apologize for his statement about choosing art over diversity, he doubled down on his SJW catering by accusing the Academy Awards of being rigged for white men.

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Yikes.

Jessenator2 (talkcontribs)

Rosalía (Spanish singer): Despite making a [https://twitter.com/rosaliavt/status/1193978023084744704?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1193978023084744704&ref_url=https://www.elmundo.es/loc/famosos/2019/11/16/5dcd7c3e21efa0ac778b468a.html tweet] condemning a right wing nationalist party called VOX, when asked about her political views, [https://www.elperiodico.com/es/ocio-y-cultura/20191115/rosalia-politica-vox-grammy-7736986 she states that politics are a delicate issue and it’s not the place to talk about it since it requires a lot of time due to delicacy.]

Gabgaberox (talkcontribs)

Removal suggestion and to be moved on the opposite list:

Elton John: Called Michael Jackson "mentally ill" and a "disturbing person to be around" in his book "ME" in the wake of Leaving Neverland.
