Judd Apatow, director of overlong unfunny movies about the emotional plight of bored upper-crust immature white people, is trying to get more sponsors to pull out of Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News due to Carlson’s criticism of illegal immigration in the aftermath of caravan members breaching our southern border.
“Hey @pfizer – what does it say about your company and your moral positions if you advertise on @tuckercarlson’s show? He and @FoxNews get rich off of dividing our country and spewing lies and hate at immigrant communities who are just trying to survive. Maybe choose another show,” stated Apatow, the director of teen-targeted R-rated garbage like The 40-Year Old Virgin.
Carlson’s daughter was recently verbally attacked with filthy sexist language by a man at a country club. Tucker, an intellectual who brings real insight into television news commentary, does not contribute to the coarse degrading of our culture. Judd Apatow, on the other hand, does.
Judd Apatow’s movies are blatantly and ceaselessly misogynistic. Male characters portrayed by Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill and the like spew degrading filth about women — which Apatow apparently seems to think is a lot funnier than it comes across in its rambling improvisatory form.
Teenagers going to date movies are now shoveled absolute sexist trash from Apatow’s factory, which might be hilarious to the Hollywood frauds getting rich on it but is certainly confusing and problematic for fathers and daughters everywhere in this country.
Of course it was actress Katherine Heigl — female lead in one of Apatow’s gutter-minded borefests — who garnered industry criticism when she took Judd’s gang to task for the rampant sexism of his oeuvre.
Look at this passage from The Telegraph, which presents Heigl’s criticism of the Knocked Up female characters, followed by Apatow protege Seth Rogen’s catty assertion that he felt “betrayed” because Heigl spoke out about the dumb misogyny in his stupid worthless movie. Talk about gender-based power dynamics in Hollywood! Rogen acknowledges that Heigl’s comments “hurt her career” and suggests that Heigl’s comments were “stupid.”
What a creep.
“It paints the women as shrews, as humourless and uptight,” she told the magazine, “and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys.
“It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it on some days. I’m playing such a bitch. Why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women?”
Rogen addressed Heigl’s remarks on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show this week, saying: “As we were making the movie together, honestly, I was like ‘I would make a dozen movies with her. I would be whatever the s****y version of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan is.
“I thought ‘Oh, we have a great dynamic, we were funny together, I was having a very good time’ and then when I heard afterwards she didn’t like it – she didn’t seem to like the process or the end product either – your trust feels betrayed.
“I respect the fact that maybe she realises it has hurt her career. And I don’t want that to have happened to her at all. Because I’ve said a thousand stupid things, and I really like her…
