Much as we love to gush about how our favorite celebrities are perfect, that's usually a hyperbole. People say shitty things, and that includes celebrities, who are on camera a much greater amount of time than the rest of us, and therefore have a much greater chance of being caught saying something racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc.
This blog is dedicated to documenting the stupid shit that celebrities have said, and calling out their apologists. None of us are perfect, but the least we can do is acknowledge that the people and things that we love are problematic sometimes.
