Screw Chick-Fil-A, I’m Boycotting Entertainment Tonight.
Poor Gabby Douglas.
People just won’t stop picking her apart.
First, there was hair-gate.
My reply to this was simply, “Yuck.”
And then I moved on, not thinking too much more about it.
But, last night, I hit play on my DVR to watch some trashy celebrity shit while I was falling asleep. I had completely forgotten about Mer’s comment…until the leading segment on Entertainment Tonight began.
The leading segment was all about the tremendous amount of debt Gabby’s mother was in. You know, debt she’s accumulated from sacrificing everything she had for her daughter’s dream. Like most mother’s would for their children.
They talked about how much she owed.
They pondered if Gabby’s new-found fame and money would be used to pay it all off.
They questioned whether any of Gabby’s new celebrity fans (Beyonce and Jennifer Garner) would come galloping in on their horses to help her poor, poor mother out.
They were so concerned about
their fucking ratings Gabby’s mother’s financial situation.
I laid in my bed, slack-jawed, at this bullshit ratings grabber. All I kept saying to my dogs was WHAT THE FUCK?
How about leading with a story on this talented young lady’s accomplishments? Or how her mother gave up so much of herself to support her daughter and help her realize her dream of being an Olympian…and how truly outstanding she is because of it.
No, this trashy television show went in the opposite direction, choosing to dissect her mother in the most personal way. And, all of this during such a spectacular and amazing time in this family’s life.
Will the rich people save this poor woman?
Will Gabby help her mother out or spend her money on a new hair stylist?
Stay tuned tomorrow while we talk about her deadbeat dad!
Simply disgusting, spinning such an awesome moment into something so negative, and ripping her apart, rather than lifting her up.
Shame on you, Entertainment Tonight! Way to be a proud American.
I’ve mentioned this show before, but I guess it wasn’t enough for me to turn off the channel.
This was enough.
And from now on, I think I’ll get my trashy celeb gossip somewhere else.
Quick! Someone start an Entertainment Tonight Appreciation Day!
