Roxane Gay in a Twitter fight with Yashar Ali!

Well.. sort of. Ali said something and Gay whinged about it. Then a whole lot of other people got involved to tell Roxane to stop "tone policing" haha. Gay is so obnoxious in this thread (and has already deleted some of her worst replies). Ali hasn't responded.

Basically, Ali was sad that Riley Keogh is still a Scientologist. This is NOT ok with Gay, who doesn't think this is an appropriate thing to say when Keogh is acting in a show written and directed by black people. When people don't fawn all over her, she gets prickly fast. Of course there is one girl, slobbering all over Gay: "one of the most important living American writers!" and it doesn't go well for her either.

Gay keeps telling people "you're missing my point!" but... uh... her point isn't very evident. I'm not sure I can work out what she means except: "don't question my right to scold other people for not thinking exactly the same way I do".

OP, you forgot "Dl Fave" in front of "Roxane Gay"!

by Anonymousreply 104/01/2021

Whoops, apologies R1, you're right. In fact, aren't the BOTH DL faves? Hahaha. They're both insufferable at least!

It's about fucking time someone told Roxane what for to her "face", so to speak:

[quote]no. believe it or not, being a famous writer does not give you the authority in a conversation about how the audience is allowed to consume and respond to media. again – i don't disagree with roxane, but defending the "bow before a famous person, commoner!" stance is not it.


[quote]i'm taking her comment exactly as she wrote it, roxane. unsurprisingly you'll brush it off because it is implied deference toward you, and i'm sure your response would be different if a fan of someone else said the exact same thing to you.

Roxane is so fucking arrogant, she claims having a difference of opinion with her is like: "bringing a knife to a gunfights". Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

I hope they swallow each other whole.

by Anonymousreply 304/01/2021

It's a possibility, R3!

by Anonymousreply 404/01/2021

And DL fav Jeremy O Harris is there, on the side of Roxane of course.

by Anonymousreply 504/01/2021

Most twatters are like, "Ugh, I know", but she will not NOT be EXHAUSTED!

by Anonymousreply 604/01/2021

Never heard of Jeremy O. Harris, R5 - looks like another DL fave to discover for me!

Hahaha R6, you can pry her exhaustion from her cold, dead hands!

by Anonymousreply 704/01/2021

Oh, so Jeremy O. Harris is one of the screenwriters for Zola. Makes sense now why he's defending Roxane.

I hate MAGAs but I hate the SJW Twitter Jockeys too.

Who gives a shit about their skin color. Jesus. She’s using race to shield herself. Dickhead.

This fucking movie sounds like a horrendous piece of shit. Of course it will get good reviews, otherwise.... RACISM!

Team Roxane on this one

by Anonymousreply 1204/01/2021

I can see that you may be right R11 if the response to any criticism, even criticism that has nothing to do with the movie isn't allowed due to who wrote and directed it.

For the "greatest living American writer", Roxane sure argues like a 5 year old.

They are two of the most annoying people on Twitter, but it doesn't seem like much of a "fight." I don't see where Yashar responded back to her. Can't stand the guy, but in this instance I don't blame him for not taking the bait.

More dyke drama.

All religions are cults. Is Yashar Ali a member of one, too? What gives him the right to criticize someone's religion? Fuck him and his ugly ass.

by Anonymousreply 2004/01/2021

Dear Roxane, your obsession with race is racist. Fuck off.

R20, most religions don’t go destroying your life if you dare leave, nor do they put you into slave labor or let rats eat you instead of letting you get medical attention. Scientology is dangerous.

by Anonymousreply 2404/01/2021

R22 - no. Would you be if you were them?

by Anonymousreply 2504/01/2021

R24... or bill you for thousands into the HUNDREDS of thousands to quote "learn about it, and practice it"....

UTTER PYRAMID scam is scientology, along with being a insidious evil abusive organization with mumbo jumbo self help nonsense all made up by a mentally ill pulp fiction writer!...

While all religions are cults, Scientology is just a cult. It is not a religion.

by Anonymousreply 2704/01/2021

name any religion that prohibits it's OWN members from moving up in it if they don't have enough money? and we are talking HUGE bucks!... never mind, "moving up"? in a religion?....

Roxane gay

Needs to stop going to the buffet

She’s going to explode in may

If she doesn’t stop eating all day

Hey I’m a poet!

by Anonymousreply 2904/01/2021

R22, I think their state of unhappiness must give them a real adrenaline hit, gets them all worked up and the endorphins running. It's such a horrible, negative space to be in. Kind of like an eternal teenager-hood.

by Anonymousreply 3004/01/2021

She must be happy today with the latest news...

R31, I’m team Roxane (in this case) how about you?

by Anonymousreply 3206/09/2021

She carries such impressive avoirdupois.

Maybe if her brother had joined the church, he'd still be alive?

Yeah, R32, if one must pick a side, I'd be on Roxane's.
