Do you ever "harass" celebrities on Twitter?

Asked by J0E (13136points) November 9th, 2009

I keep giving George Lopez pointers on his comedy so his new show won’t suck. For example, I told him “being latin is not a joke by itself.” For some reason I don’t get replies…

No, but I probably would get a reply from Graham Linehan (creator of the brilliant UK Channel 4 sitcoms Father Ted and Black Books) if I asked him questions about comedy. I’m too shy!

I told Lopez “Please tell jokes that haven’t been told a million times before.” He replies “that won’t be a problem.”

Yeah right…

Could you please inform Carlos Mencia of the same thing? Thx.

@J0E Who gave that man a talk show anyway?

Capt_Bloth's avatar

Lurve to all; George Lopez and Carlos Mencia both suck! I think I’ll start using twitter just so I can harass them.
Maybe if we all harass them and give them pointers, they wouldn’t suck so bad. Then they might be justified in having TV shows. Might, I wouldn’t count on it.

Speaking of bad comedy, what’s the deal with Tyler Perry?

@J0E: You might mention that piece of good advice to some flutherers.

Um, why does he matter so much to you?

J0E's avatar

@asmonet TBS is the channel that I watch probably 90% of the time so I don’t like it when lame comedians get late night talk shows on it.

@J0E Truer words have never been spoken. GQ and GA’s @erichw1504, @proXXi , and @Capt_Bloth.

I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who despises Carlos Mencia and George Lopez. Bleh.

I want Dave Chappelle back!

@jsammons That would be amazing if Dave Chappelle came back!

Sarcasm's avatar

I try talking to them. It never works.

asmonet's avatar

@J0E: You could change the channel. I just don’t understand when people do stuff like that. You have no benefit to bitching at them, ‘correcting’ them based on your own opinion of comedy, I just don’t understand your payoff. It seems like the most useless thing you could possibly set your mind to.

jsammons's avatar

@erichw1504 Any idea what he’s up to now?

J0E's avatar

@asmonet You’re really over estimating how mad I am about this. I know it’s pointless, it’s just my way of complaining. Of course I’m not going to watch it, that’s not the point.

Don’t talk to me about useless activities, look what you’re doing.

asmonet's avatar

Fluthering? I’m not doing anything other than trying to understand your motivations. A far cry I think from your activities. This wasn’t meant to pick a fight, but you can take it that way if you’re really want to. I was just curious what would compel a grown man to complain about someone he’s unlikely to ever meet in two separate forums and get this upset about it. And by that I mean you’re invested enough in the behavior to get defensive and pissy about it to a stranger on the internet.

So if you’re not gonna watch it, they don’t affect your life, they’re not going to change anything about theirs and you know that… what exactly is your point?

I was only curious, darling. I don’t have to agree with you to comment and question.

erichw1504's avatar

@jsammons I actually just looked up his Wikipedia page and the latest thing is an interview he did in 2008. So, hopefully he’s doing well and may come back to the entertainment world soon.

Sarcasm's avatar

Dave Chappelle lives on a huge farm in Ohio and says he’s not moving away. Doubt companies will come to him.

J0E's avatar

I’m not complaining in two forums, I did not mean for this question to be about Lopez, he was just an example.

“So if you’re not gonna watch it, they don’t affect your life, they’re not going to change anything about theirs and you know that”

Thank you for telling me that! Now I can stop worrying about homeless people, children in third world countries, and everything else that doesn’t affect my life.

asmonet's avatar

That can affect your life, depending on your own character.
You’re clearly not interested in answering my very simple question, so I’m out. Save it for some other time.

J0E's avatar

I’m just complaining about something, there is no motivation behind it other than the fact that I am not a fan of George Lopez.

What, have you never complained about something?

jsammons's avatar

I wish he would come back, he is truly a funny and original comedian. I can listen to his stuff throughout the day and it doesn’t get any less funny. The black whit supremacist is one of my favorites.

Why harass anybody through Twitter? It seems a trollish thing to do.

erichw1504's avatar

@Darwin Well, what is @J0E supposed to do, call him? I doubt he has Lopez’s number or even e-mail.

Darwin's avatar

Why harass anybody? Surely folks have better things to do than bug other people they don’t even know personally.

It seems to me that changing the channel works pretty well. If Lopez doesn’t get the viewers he won’t be renewed.

erichw1504's avatar

@Darwin Surely folks have better things to do than bug other people they don’t even know personally.

Honestly, some people don’t. So, let’s just let them be. And yes, I agree that if you don’t like what you’re watching them change it! But, if you are emotional invested into something or someone, then maybe you should put in your two cents.

Darwin's avatar

If you do enough harassing, you become a stalker and have interesting people following you around. Expounding your beliefs about someone’s lack of talent is one thing, but reaching out to touch them is very different.

CMaz's avatar

I “harass” myself.

This way I know I will get a reply.

J0E's avatar

“Harass” is probably a strong word, I’m not really sending anything mean to him.

jeanna's avatar

why do some people never get it? methinks certain people have nothing better to do than to complain about other people complaining. seriously wtf? hypocritical much?

GQ and a few GA’s Joe; screw people who don’t get it. You have every right. Please do it to more assholes. Thanks.

MacBean's avatar

Are you… complaining about people complaining about people complaining? <HEAD EXPLODES>

jeanna's avatar

@MacBean yesssss! see, YOU get it. :D
