Bret Easton Ellis apologizes to Katherine Bigelow

Awwww, come on Ellis, don't wuss out. Ellis is an internet troll [italic]par excellence.[/italic] He will find a little kernel - not even a kernel, a niblet - of truth in something, something that no one typically admits out loud - or will only admit anonymously on the internet - and he takes advantage of the vacuous nature of the blogosphere - the Warholian notion of something becoming important simply because a celebrity says it - to create a genuine media circus. It's like trolling as performance art. The stuff he says about Katherine Bigelow or Les Miserables or Matt Bomer or Glee isn't really out of line from the stuff I read on Datalounge, but when Ellis says it, it makes fifty online news and gossip sites. There's something almost perversely admirable about Ellis's twitter. I admire its purity. A survivor. Unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality. No, wait, that's Ash's speech about the xenomorph...
