Darlings, the people that God has chosen to be better than us all (i.e., celebrities) occasionally let us down with their less-than-perfect behavior and their refusal to be moral paragons. This week, the two big celebrity disappointment stories are Ryan Lochte’s yeoman-like efforts to keep the “Ugly American” stereotype alive and well in Rio, and Amy Schumer’s absolutely shitty method of dealing with bad press or a controversy that pops up in her orbit. Neither of them get defended by us, but we tried to shade each situation with a little bit of nuance – mainly: he’s too dumb to know better and she’s the last gal you should be asking to take a hard stand on a social issue.
After we get done yelling at famous people, we do a quick rundown on Netflix’s The Little Prince, season 2 of UNreal, and a bunch of things we didn’t get (or forgot) to say in our Mr. Robot and The Get Down reviews.
Opinions galore, darlings! Dive right in! The water’s fine.
