Trench on the Aurora shooting Part 2: Celebrities

dkrbat

Just a little something I left out of my last rant about Aurora.

Why is the media insistent on interviewing the entire cast and crew of Dark Knight Rises about the shooting? Have we become so shallow and celebrity-obsessed in this country that we have to hang on every word that they utter?

While Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway may be talented in their respective field unless they have actually something to contribute to the conversation on Aurora I don’t care what they have to say about it. They weren’t there, they’re just actors, they have nothing to do with this tragedy other than being shown on a screen when it happened.

I’m not saying that they don’t have the right to offer their opinion on the tragedy, I’m saying that in a time like this the last people we or the media should be looking to are actors.
