Ben Barnes, part XXIV

Working with GDT? Is he finally growing up? Becoming an adult? At 40?

Probably not?

Anyway *slightly* more serious matters. . . this comes with the context of I have never watched a thirst video cause it feels 110% cringe to me personally. But am I out of line thinking this campaign feels like the equivalent of a construction worker catcalling a woman and demanding that she smile for them? Isn't this supposed to be an insulting thing society should move past? Are there people that genuinely enjoy reading the over the top NSFW comments they're tagged in? Do they ever campaign for/ask actresses or is it only actors? Why is this in general an okay thing to do? Am I just missing the whole point or something or am I just old?

Very off topic, but does anyone else think Rob was blacklisted after supporting Chloe re: the abuse she endured while she was with Chris Hardwick? He’s barely done anything significant in several years now, which is weird considering he was in a few major movies and had his own show not too long ago.

[quote]yes we have a waterdown version of BB now even though his audience in latter years have been the opposite, with exception of S&B, boring overscripted analytical word salad interviews.

R47 Yes but Ben is well established in the lane of "avoiding conflict at all costs." Which means be as silent and bland and boring as possible to be as uncontroversial as possible so you don't ever alienate or offend anyone. It keeps your potential fanbase as large as possible but doesn't specifically draw anyone into it. Well, except for teenaged fangirls who think he's really hot and very eagerly send him. . . thirst tweets. . . .

Plus you'd have to demonstrate that you have your own properly held views and opinions and principles and confident personality and all we've gotten from Ben lately is that he wants to surround himself with love and kindness 100% of the time. Well that and that he loves music and unabashedly spends most of his free time sitting at home watching movies and TV. He's a riveting angel on Earth to both the New Age bunch and the unemployed block.

Plus the analytical word salad satisfies his elitist half as it keeps him able to be taken seriously by the higher class educated folks.

Laarrrrrrggggggeeeeee potential fanbase.. He knows what he's doing. Well either that or he truly does lack any and all substance and there's a reason he's still single. *shrug* At least he's still pretty with the filters on..

R48 Yes I’ve wondered that, but people have to know who you are in order to blacklist you and I don’t think either he or Chloe are well known enough to really be blacklisted. Plus Chloe’s dad seems well connected enough that he could help rectify that if they were the case. I hope Rob gets a break soon though I think he deserves to be working more than he has

R48 It seems from what was reported by Chloe and Rob that Chloe was backlisted which Rob verified and as Rob stood up for Chloe at the time as advocate and boyfriend of Chloe then it seems to me that he was/is blacklisted too which I would think he was prepared for to speak out so openly about what happened to Chloe.

It also brought up Robs own dirty laundry which he had to publically address and apologise for, past issues with mis-treating women.

by Anonymousreply 56September 5, 2021 11:28 AM

R50 I don’t think you have to be well-known to be blacklisted, someone powerful has to have a grudge against you. Rob called Hardwick out directly on Twitter several times at the height of it in 2018, which I doubt went down well, considering Chris has a good amount of pull in the nerd corner of the industry. Plus, I don’t think a VFX god necessarily has any pull in the casting dept and with execs.

I do think it’s weird that Ben never really spoke up about Chloe’s claims, if I recall correctly he never commented on it or showed public support. I know we’re all inclined to believe that Ben didn't care, but I’m leaning towards, it’s hard to call out powerful people in any industry without facing major career repercussions. I could be completely wrong, of course.

by Anonymousreply 57September 5, 2021 1:26 PM

R56 I think you’re right, plus I do think there was mild naïveté on Chloe and Rob’s part. I did a deep dive this past week (bored + curious) and I don’t think Rob considered how much that previous allegation would harm him in the sphere of public opinion (him and Chloe got *a lot* of Twitter abuse at that time, with Rob’s past being a huge talking point for the Hardwick fans). I dove into a few Rob interviews (hoping to also find some Ben content, no dice), and in one podcast he said the woman he sent dick pics to was also sending him naked pictures of herself, but she managed to weaponize his against him 🤷 I do wonder if that aspect of his past coming to light also got studios to stop working with him.

I went off into this deep dive because I remembered Rob worked with Guillermo Del Torro in Pacific Rim. Here’s hoping Ben can put Rob’s name back in GDT’s ear?

by Anonymousreply 58September 5, 2021 1:37 PM

R57 and R58 well said and at the time of the allegations being public Hardwick was already married into a powerful media/publishing Hollywood Hearst family who backed Hardwick up and I believe would be the gears behind the blacklisting of Chloe and Rob.

They most likely dug up dirt on Rob and prob blackmailed Chloe as she stood down from taking the allegations further or speaking about it. Its the old trick in the book smear and dirt digging to discredit claims and shut down conversations. I like to think Rob would have been ready to talk about his past publicised indiscretions in the UK if he's publically speaking up against someone with deep connections in media who has done worse.

It is interesting to see what happens in these circumstances and the line people chose to cross when being public about a point of view or staying silent. There are different ways of supporting people and causes while minimising backlash and repercussions.

R59 in my morning brain fog, I COMPLETELY forgot about the Hearst connection, which absolutely made it a David and Goliath situation for anyone going up against Chris, which might hint at why Ben never spoke up.

A few years ago, my boss said something racist about a coworker of mine, and I told her HR would be hearing from me, and she threatened to make sure I was unemployable in my field. This is the medical field, and I knew she had very little clout in it, so I went ahead and reported her (of course HR took her side because that’s what HR does, but I’m still gainfully employed in the field, thankfully). I can’t imagine what it would’ve been like if I were dealing with much bigger fish, I honestly wouldn’t have spoken up out of fear. The whole system of money+power is pretty effed up

But he has obviously been scrutinising all their posts!

Can I just say what I don't like? Put all my grievances out? Is it ok? I’m still anxious when talkin to ppl online so sorry about that.

So I don’t like the kind of music Benny Boy is doing. It’s not my cup of tea just because and also cuz of my years long dislike of all Bublé like music. Seriously, at Christmas I just wish I could go back in time and prevent him from ever recording anything. Sure look I know some people like it but for me this kind of ventures are shallow, unimaginative and forgettable. And the instrumentals smell cheesy and have a nauseous effect on me.

As far as I'm aware EPs are cheaper and quicker to make and they gave the word out before the actual album, and the point of them is also that there's no need for making any concept or tell a story cuz it’s 5 tracks tops aka low effort. But for the love of all things spice, he said that music is his dream and now, the lack of real promotion and some more in depth (unless you count the inspo quotes?) comments about it seem to me as the EP is a product of a rich kid whose daddy paid for their weekends only pop star dream.

Still can’t get over the female pirate thing too. Can we expect the full LP to be nursery rhymes inspired? And I never expected him to make groundbreaking music but he gaves out bout that degree of his and how much shite he knows and what we get? So far all I can see is a white insta girl in early 20s who's also an industry plant wannabe (without the actual connections tho). But like he 40?

And a question. If it was discussed before then sorry again. It looks like the music is for his small fan circle specificaly right? The BIG ANNOUNCEMENT was on his birthday cuz there was bigger traffic expected and his fans were waiting. I can’t see anyone being interested in it unless they have been with him a while now? Plus he/his team are not doing anything to promote it outside the cult following I think? Yee it only adds to the rich kid's whim…

by Anonymousreply 96September 6, 2021 11:37 AM

R96 I agree, he seems to be relying only on himself and his contacts for this, not really trying to turn it into something more "pro". Maybe he himself doesn't believe too much in it, or he's somehow embarrassed or considers it just a vanity project. I don't think he believes he can have the same career in music. Rightly so, since how many actors became successful as singers later too? Maybe Jared Leto, but I think music and acting were more or less going at the same pace, so not the same situation. ScarJo made a couple of albums, but with what success? Vanity projects for her too.

R96 Privileged kid or not, I’m happy to let him have his fun. I’m not a huge fan of Bublé Style either but I can stomach a little at a time. I’m just hoping that (despite the 11:11 nonsense which we all know has got to have come from you-know-who) the music and the new grown-up project he’s currently working on can divert his attention permanently away from HoFace.

by Anonymousreply 98September 6, 2021 1:46 PM

The rich kid’s whim assessment is spot-on. He’s blown his wad on recording/producing this, plus the videos, so I think he has no more money for graphic design and definitely none for promotion. He’s hoping this goes viral.

by Anonymousreply 99September 6, 2021 2:08 PM

I think it would be so obnoxious if he was aggressively promoting it more than he already is I don’t know why people expected him to. And I’m sure many people would be complaining if he was doing more. He’s an actor first and foremost and this is just a passion project for him just like the many little passion projects that came out of the pandemic when some people were lucky enough to have some extra time to work on something they otherwise wouldn’t have done maybe. If his music does well then great but if not it will just be like any other movie or show that doesn’t manage to do great he will just move onto the next one. He’s not trying to make music his whole career or is primary source of income so pouring the money into it to self record and publish and make a good music video is already beyond what other cross over musicians might be expected to do. So where is this spoiled rich kid assessment coming from unless you have info we don’t about his parents funding it instead of him? It looks like he used his own money that he earned from a (so far) moderately successful acting career to fund a passion project while still prioritizing his acting career first. This doesn’t seem as controversial as some people are making it out to be here. And of course his music isn’t going to fit all music tastes so those people just shouldn’t listen to it just like any other song that doesn’t fit someone’s taste.

by Anonymousreply 100September 6, 2021 3:24 PM

Do we think that none of his fans or family told him that 11:11 was stupid or maybe some did and he's too dumb to understand how stupid that whole thing is?

R97 Ye it's just like he can't decide what he truly wants, but now with the S&B popularity it's time to try anyways?

R98 Honestly? The fallout thats gonna happen if the song/s are inspired by her is what I want to see. But at the same time I wish it ain’t gonna happen because beside all the wanky decisions he made lately I sometimes like to look at his bland ass in that little corner of the internet. And I love how the GDT show is called a grown-up project. Made my day.

R100 Imma pretty sure I never said his parents paid for this. (He wants a music career? He's gonna get it. That’s what a whim is and growing up I learned that it's a rich ppl privilege, usually paid by rich parents sooo I used it as an ?analogy? here cuz I found it appropriate. But it's just my opinion tho.) What I said was that I can’t see all of this passion or heart or whatever he claims he put into it. It’s just the one same statement in the few publications they made. And while I agree on the too aggressive promotion not doing any good, he does barely promote it to his established fans and them only? If the emojis were part of it, he ‘promoted’ it in a way that only the chosen ones did notice. Yet, his birthday post made it seem like a rather serious ‘little project’ and not something he will push to the back of the closet if it turns out mehh. That's what confuses me the most.

R96 welcome😊 good points especially about the limited spectrum of audience and efforts with promotions for his dream project, yes agreed I don't think its for a long term career but a one off (hopefully) personal project. I knew it would be a Bublèsque theme too unfortunately.

R99 I think BB has plenty of money in reserves hes just stingy with it for his 'dream' music project😏...and it shows too, barnacle stan's fan arts are better than the graphic design/photography intern promo photos and pics!

Before the release I did think he was going to do more stuff with music and behind the scenes TV and film but now after seeing the music project and effort of promotion that's a defo no. Stick to your day job BB. I'm still curious what he's collaborating on with Lisa Joy or is she next in line to direct a music video for him.

He said “follow my YouTube for more videos soon” like a little geriatric millennial influencer 😂😂 I’m sure he’s leaving the #11:11 broken hashtag just to remind everyone he’s not technologically advanced to manage expectations. His episode wraps the same day as his EP release but maybe he’s planning to release another music video before then. He should know from the Mt Wolf music video re-release about YouTube’s video premier features like live stream/chat before and during premiers so I wonder if he will do something similar or just randomly drop it without warning.

R151 I think he would still be in Toronto for rehearsals, fittings, screen tests, etc especially if this is the type of horror that requires any crazy VFX makeup or costumes. Netflix has some very strict covid protocols so I don’t think he would be traveling around anywhere else just to kill free time. He may want to be around for the other episodes even if he’s not in them yet, but some sets are closed to essential personnel only due to covid so that may be irrelevant

It’s possible his schedule doesn’t allow for an 11:11 post in his current time zone so he’s doing it when he can or scheduling it in pacific time as his “home” time zone. Reddit bought Dubsmash at the end of last year as they try to become the main rival to TikTok and has been pushing for the reputation of supporting a more diverse variety of underrepresented creators/influencers compared to the mostly white gen Zs on Tiktok so maybe they even had a deal with Ben to make that post using their original dub feature, in which case he would have likely been advised by professionals to schedule it, but that sounds too marketing savvy for Ben.

by Anonymousreply 160September 8, 2021 8:35 PM

R158 Yes you can schedule posts, and there's no doubt in my mind that's what he uses (otherwise, he's literally checking the clock ALL "morning" long to make sure he hits post at exactly the right *minute*).

R163 I’m not saying he’s using it properly or consistently haha who knows what he’s doing. I’m just saying all of the tools available to schedule posts that I’ve ever seen have more scheduling flexibility than being limited or dictated by the time zone your device is in. Otherwise that would defeat the purpose of the tool especially for social media managers based in one country or time zone scheduling and monitoring content for audiences in other time zones or on unique content schedules. And the settings are independent of your core phone settings so even if you scheduled it in one time zone it wouldn’t necessarily change just because your device time zone changed between schedule and launch, unless it’s set to do that

by Anonymousreply 165September 8, 2021 8:52 PM

Unless he had to go to Vancouver for a work related reason I highly doubt he’s allowed to travel for leisure right now with how strict Netflix is. It depends on the production and country but even vaccinated people who aren’t the cast or zone A crew are required and paid an inventive stipend to get tested every 2-3 days. Cast and zone A crew are usually required to be vaccinated and also have very regular testing and can be required to self isolate with a series of negative tests required if they traveled from a high risk area or had verifiable contact with an infected person. Production timelines often don’t account for weekends or long holiday weekends like Labor Day, but I think he’s also professional enough not to risk this opportunity on a long weekend home in LA for no reason especially if he would have had to get special permission for it or was expected to be on call for pre-production work. I could be wrong of course but logistically it doesn’t seem likely this close to production with how things are operating in covid times. And some of the announcements made a big deal about the GTD project being a fully Toronto based production so I don’t think he would be going to Vancouver unless it was S&B related

His last IG story promoting 11:11 (the watch over his eye) was posted at 11:11 AM EST on Sunday (September 5) though, so that would be the correct time zone if he was still on the east coast (Toronto). I'm not sure where he is today, but those 2 things make it seem as though he was still in Toronto over the weekend.

R166 I at least didn't mean to suggest I thought he was traveling for leisure, it was my assumption that it was work related. I'm just wondering about the why, for which project and the to where.

R165 You basically hit the nail on the head. He would have to know how technology works to be able to avail himself of those options. And he's still hashtagging 11:11 like an idiot. Plus aren't those some rather ridiculous lengths he would have had to go to just to hide where he was?? Why?? Everyone knows you're filming in Toronto right now, why try to make people think differently if that still is the case?

I mean, the only possible explanation for purposefully posting an 11:11 reference in LA time verses where he actually is is to win back The Ho after she said she was breaking up with all the memories of past loves that let her down yesterday, right??? Obvi.

He posted his august 9 post at 11:11 LA time while he was in the UK and I think one of this bday posts too, so I think he knows how to post at different times outside his current time zone. If he didn’t fly into Toronto until August 30th his 11:11 east coast time post was also while he was not in that time zone yet, so he could just be switching it up or posting it when he has the time. I don’t think it means much. The fact that his Instagram and Twitter posts aren’t coordinated makes me think he’s not scheduling it

R174 Assuming I'm remembering correctly, recall that's the second of the recent vibrator stories she's posted. Wasn't it last week (or week before???) she had the story where she was literally laying on top of her "muscle" vibrator (it was under her abdominal area) and it kept on squirting out from beneath her (Yeah, I said squirted didn't I..)? I don't think it was the same jackhammer one from last night. I'm remembering it looked like a simple rectangular brick. Technically if we want to talk about The Ho using a vibrator on Insta, that was the video. Last night's leg video was G-rated in comparison!

R191 The first thing I noticed is the beard is gone. The second thing I noticed are the lighter bits in his hair as I immediately thought, "are those grey hairs?!?!?" Because it's not just at his temples, they're at the top too.

But on second thought, given how shoddy that shave is, I wondered if he had just gotten a cast done for future FX work. They cover most of your hair with a cap, but the edges stick out, which is exactly where you can see that "grey residue." It's a more likely answer than he suddenly grew a bunch of grey hairs over night, lol..

R204 Some more fun comments!

[quote] This is an incredibly damaging concept for a show. Activism isn't a 'game' and (when done properly) it's not and shouldn't be performative or something you can "win". Beyond that, the idea that activists will be working "against" each other is so dangerous, upholding the very oppression they are seeking to fight against. For so many people around the world it's incredible risky to even engage in activism, let alone to call yourself an activist for fear of retribution and repercussions. Measured in engagement and metrics? Turning activism into a performative, social-media support in a glamorous arena (with three judges at the helm who have absolutely no qualifications/credentials to be there) undermines everything that true activism is about and stands for. This show needs to be pulled.

[quote]How is this even remotely ok and being celebrated when the money being used for the production for this whole thing could just be given directly to the work being done...and then also without encouraging unnecessary competition for resources that we already have to face in real life? Really?!?! This ain't it.

[quote]This is the most ridiculous idea I've ever heard. "Oh sorry your dance video about child hunger didn't get enough likes so unfortunately, we won't be feeding the children. You're eliminated" so much cringe. I can't believe a studio said yes to this

Some more fun ones for you Ben!! But by all means, go post a BLM story to make up for it.

Oneninetynine and R240 absolutely it will be very interesting how this all moves forward. And this isn't something that can be commented on a woopsie from JH too. Racial/social equality accountability on SM now is very different to her initial blackface shit storm. JH won't get away with simply deleting comments as there are SOO many some from other blue check social/cultural influencers/social justice charities spokespeople which would add to the culturally and socially tone deaf/blind discord and denial of community justice responsibility. Some accounts have already spoken about being silenced for stating their opinion about the show on SM due to algorithms which defeats the purpose of the intentions of the show! Even bloody Deuxmoi the JH and BB protectors are speaking out against the show!

JH has been so focused on her hair extentions, BB emoji's, buying her bot farm, shopping for husband/meal ticket and selling cooter pounders. she didn't bother considering the ethical implications of what she is trying to 'influence' the public into engaging with on her new project. No JH you didn't read the room on this one.

This will air the 5 episodes then will be cancelled or will be cancelled altogether before it begins, CBS has had a big kick back from so many levels on media platforms it will generate a whole level of negative media coverage. Usher and Priyanka threw JH under the bus as they aren't promoting and not even mentioned it at all. Usher did do a 11:11 story instead tho so he's into the same whackadoodle crap as BB and JH or he's giving BB some free music advertising...doubtful!

Ah and then we have BB liking the one JH business/project because he's the "Woke" intellectual amoung his actor peers and thought now he can show up and be the good friend by supporting his whatever in a socially/culturally unethical human rights TV project. BB Barnacles can deflect to his beard all they want but the bigger landscape of social justice inequalities have a microscope on this project and everyone tied to it...he should be more worried about that! Oh BB your parents must be so proud...also fuck you to all the other celebrities who cheered this fuck show on!

R243 Lilly, I adore you.

I'd just like to take another moment to re-point out the wonder in R241. Ben's FANGIRLS are now calling him racist. It's no longer just randos on the internet taking him to task for his horrible choices. This is a prolific superfan. And she's now making memes saying Ben Barnes would only accept a purely white baby as his own. Not to mention the rest of her Twitter right now. Quick Ben, tweet out some darker skinned emojis to show your heartfelt support for the cause!

BTW.. I don't actually know the data, but I do now wonder.. This show is apparently airing on Paramount+. Which is yet another subscription service. So I wonder. . . what proportion of subscribers to this channel are non-white and/or non-rich? If it's really low, this show is then doubling down on literally being nothing more than performative elitist activism that'll be used to make said elitist white subscribers feel better about themselves as they cheer on their favorite activist with SM likes and retweets. Just like all good woke "activists," they've now done their part for the cause. Does anyone know any relevant demographic info about this channel?

But the most deliciously ironic thing for me I saw from him today, was liking this post below. What's the over/under that Benny ever reads ANY criticism ANYONE makes of him anymore? *Ever*. The past 24 hours, especially this show, *definitely* The Ho, and to a lesser extent but entirely due to his arrogant out of touch ignorance, Ben, have been raked over the burning coals over this shitshow. Do we think Ben has actually read any of it? Cause he's surprisingly been very much all over SM today, culminating in liking a Hugh Laurie tweet that effectively praises having had other people do 99% of his thinking for him (which is one hell of a way to mock and subvert the virtues of "think for yourself," but leave it to rich white men to not want to question the common wisdom and social etiquette that keeps them at the very top of the power food chain). Did any of that SM time involve reading his mentions? Is reading criticism sexy too? Or is it just beneath him these days cause he only surrounds himself and fills his life with people and thoughts that genuinely love him for however he chooses to express himself. Always remember, it's not good or bad after all, it just is what it is.

R251 I just took a very quick Google about Paramount+ but could only find info about their rebranding and attempt to take their age demographic back -20 years or so from their previous 55+ preferred demo. They were said to be taking a deep dive into reality TV, though - well this new show is the deepest of deep dives, no?

Good Morning, I so love how she has announced it even beforehand as something she was so proud of - with the most filtered picture ever as well. She can never claim that this was a bad thing she has unwittingly been dragged into.

As for Ben, he will probably get away with just some fans being disappointed while most of them are still hoping they‘ll be blessed by his light one day.

R251 R253 wait LOL OMG I didn’t even realize it’s only airing on Paramount+ that’s even more embarrassing. This is just going to further water down their sad little attempt to enter the streaming wars against the big guns. Bless their little hearts they should just give up now.

I can see why JH did it she’s desperate, and I don’t know wtf Usher is up to he just seems to do what he wants now, but Priyanka is in the new Matrix movie it’s not like she’s desperate for work, and as a UNICEF ambassador it’s not a good look for her to be getting involved in this cheap fake activism BS especially after her recent statements that have caused some scandals. The whole project should just be canceled but if it’s on Paramount+ no one is going to see it anyways lol so maybe they think by not promoting it no one will even notice besides the brain dead Ho fans.

R251 omg WHY does he feel the need to follow and like things that say reading is sexy he’s so embarrassing. But also I appreciate that this and the recent beardless, plaster hair fiasco are the kind of exposure therapy my brain might need to finally release me from this hyperinterest in Ben so I can’t look away.

I'd just like to remind Ben, souls aren't real. But for the sake of his argument, let's proceed as if they were. Souls are not automatically benign, harmless, innocent creations. I'd argue that mostly stems from the fact that we humans have egos (some of us far more massive than others, right Ben?) which make us selfish. When those egos aren't checked and held accountable, our souls become corrupted. That's what sins are. That's what vices are. That's when we hurt people to benefit ourselves. When we sell our souls to the devil, which he knows all about, right Ben? That's when we fall prey to our baser, immoral, villainous ways and do evil things.

Truly wicked people have souls too. They're just as black as their hearts, something he knows all about, right Ben? At least he would if he didn't spend all his time learning solely from inspirational quotes and actually thought for himself about the real world and the people hurting in it once and a while.

Truly, it is literally unbelievable how immensely stupid he is sometimes.

R269 I’m sure they probably have. I don’t know much about Brooke, but Rob and Zelda (at least from their public personalities, I don’t know them personally) seem like very direct, no bullshit type people who would at least try. But if you have ever had a friend who even once or habitually falls for the wrong types of people you know how hard it can be to talk sense into them if they are in love or at least have some level of infatuation with them. That coupled with the fact that Ben prides himself on being the empathetic one friends can talk to and probably has an “I can fix them” mentality nurtured by his upbringing and parent’s professions, it might be impossible to get through to him.

by Anonymousreply 270September 11, 2021 9:06 PM

R269 I've been saying for many months that both Ben's friends AND family should have done whatever ever it took to set him on a better path. So the question becomes do any of his friends and family even think he just may be on a bad one. Or if they do, is Ben even capable of listening anymore. Maybe he's just a few inspirational quotes short of an accountability meal.

R272 Syl, I need to disagree with you on this occasion. That account actually told him off on a comment & @‘d him on the Ho’s post, as did quite a few of the fp’s. There have been several stories & posts high have lacked the usual slavish devotion.

And these story items IMO are similar to a Cardinal totally dissing the Pope. You would not usually hear a *peep* from them. All the way through all the ‘Gates’ - nada.

Finally the straw which broke the camel’s back. They’ve defended and battled trolls for him since April 2020 but now they’ve had enough. It might not be roundly damning him but it’s such a big step forward for them, frankly I’m amazed. Never thought I’d see the day.

I’m just curious to see the outrage on Instagram but not sure where to look to what you are referring to. It’s very prominent on Twitter especially with the Darklina crowd. I wonder if Ben even realizes how diverse and global his fan base is and considers how his actions are viewed by them and not just Americans or brits

by Anonymousreply 280September 11, 2021 10:41 PM

I believe many of his fans are at what I call DL syndrome stage. They have all the information we have including all the gates from Montana to Emoji. They have until now decided to interpret those in his favor. But, this new aspect may the proverbial drop that brings up the question ‚‘wait, who is this guy? Is he really this shallow?‘ - all the accumulated information starts to form an image. Yes, he has been friends with the Ho for ages, and yes, she is this dumb. He did go to Montana with her, if sexually or naught, he chose to be close to her. They all loved and andored his Covid posts. They will re-judge it now by the light of recent events. They are in doubt. Even A*** and Cindy (who is loving Alex from Vikings right now). As for many of us, it is that their image of intellectual, sensitive nerdy Ben, who we have admired because we ourselves felt somehow represented as nerdy, harmless intellectuals, is collapsing. And we understand: he is just a shallow actor.

Do you guys remember the days before Ben's ego took over? When he got called out for doing something problematic and he would actually correct the issue and offer a little apology for his oopsie? Cause that like is still attached to The Ho's post even now.

This is absolutely universal condemnation by even his absolute biggest fans. But he still considers himself above all the accountability even they're calling for. . . wow. . . .

R290 I think since he is rarely tagged he doesn‘t even notice how bad it is, because he does not bother to track his major fansites. There is still a lot of 11:11 noise by the naive and unknowing, and I guess he focuses on that.

It is the main problem of his, that he simply does not get the internet and thinks it‘s intellectual and special not to. But still wanting go get the best of it.

Ive not had a chance to catch up on all the Barnacles Stans comments on twitter it is so much so thanksnfor posting them everyone. I do agree that his stans are slowly coming around aptly put by 199-"DL syndrome stage" that description deserves a chapter in a psychology book.😂

R290 I do think that BB is aware of his sooper fansites, and he used to interect with them so much in the early days and even the newer ones he will like periodically. I think now he doesn't like to be "seen to be aware" of his presence on SM out of feeling obligated to be/feel accountable for his actions on SM a long time ago.

BB doesn't care hence his new spiritual awakening to numb the accountability away. We're in new phase of BB and it ain't golden..new age spiritual necklaces, ambiguous memes, symbolism, numerology pseudo social awareness to match his pseudo award he's in denial to claim amoung his actor peers...cheers R252 for double checking that😊

I think most of the major stans calling him out think they are being responsible fans by trying to hold him accountable and educating him and his other fans on his ignorance and maybe believing they can change him, but I don’t think they are actually going to not support him like a boycot of his music or something. I don’t think most are at the stage that some DLers are here where it’s a scorched earth irredeemable view of Ben that will cloud everything he does from now on. But I’m sure there will be a ton of chatter about the suspected relationship of his music to the Ho and all her faults once the single is released and this new development is only going to give it more fuel, which he probably isn’t happy with. If she hadn’t posted that “it’s time” story and 11:11 necklace I don’t think most people would be making the connection to her unless there’s some other obvious clues in the rest of the lyrics, so he should be furious at her for insisting she make it about herself publicly. But at this point unliking the post would just look like a sad coverup. It’s telling that even her close friends Aaron Paul and his wife who have their own activist endeavors didn’t like it and neither did her brother or her mom. They were either smart enough not to or saw the backlash before they got around to liking it

JH and PC don't care about the "process" JH grew up in this industry and was subjected to horrible circumstances as a child into adulthood. And has first hand experience of how children are objectified and used by adult entertainment corporations and seems to have made along with alot of other celebs her choice of choosing money, fame and power. If JH wanted to do go as an influencer she could create great projects working with children in dance entertainment industry serving to protect and raise awareness of children's rights and equal opportunities. she has the power, resources, political connections with her dad and networking with fellow peers but no she chooses to add to the exploitation of children masked as a good cause just like usher and PC for their own gains. And if people like Ben Barnes can't see the bigger issues regarding the show then they are also part of the problem of child/social/cultural exploitation in the society.

R338 yes, but when you have 2 Million Followers you get so many notifications you simply can‘t keep up. I sometimes have to monitor sponsored posts that have a fraction of his interaction and the reactions cone in so fast you can‘t keep up. I think he checks his tags on photos and sometimes the specific reactions to his own posts. Twitter has a better chance of reaching him.

R331 Just like I said at R311 then? I believe yesterday was originally when he was supposed to do that Calgary con he canceled. And yet, both yesterday and Friday he clearly spent MUCH more time online than you would expect if he's working right now. He's been reposting fanart, and liking tweets and posting stories and watching a bunch of tennis on tv AND LIKING IG POSTS all day Friday and Saturday. Literally speaking. since he's clearly had nothing but free time the past couple days that he's occupied A BUNCH with being online, *how* could he not be aware of any of it. LITERALLY how could he be *that* bad at life? I don't think that's possible at all considering his SM behavior is MUCH higher than usual and is completely trying to deflect all the criticism. "Search for the soul in everything" even though the road to Hell is paved with the best intentions. Look!! I still have fans, look at all this fanart I'm posting!!! Let me like this tweet about not thinking for yourself so I can convince you to just go along to get along in STILL liking and supporting me.

Has anyone checked his Youtube and Spotify in the past couple days? Cause if he is completely ignoring all his other social media over this shitstorm of accountability, maybe these folks should try getting his arrogant elitist attention there. What they're doing right now is clearly not having any impact on his behavior at the moment. But he's got something TO SELL on Spotify in less than a week. And maybe hitting him in the pocketbook is the only thing that will reach him through his dug in extreme arrogance.

R340 sorry, did not mean to say he noticed nothing. Just that it is hard to get through. And he will think it‘s just a few DLers again. I gather posting here is more effective, as is instatrolling with those placative stuff like the 11:11. just mentioning him is a lottery.

R341 Nah, Syl mentioned thinking he was completely unaware of everything. And while I agree that he is incredibly stupid so that's "easy to believe", I personally do not agree that he's unaware. I think he knows exactly what's going on everywhere and I think he doesn't care. At all. Because it's very, very clearly not just a few DL'ers this time. And it's not the whole fandom either, cause if you read more of what the fan complaints are, apparently Ben's white fans are calling out the proverbial 'BIPOC trolling' going on right now and the POC fans are clapping back at the obvious racism.

And Ben's just *desperately* trying to make it all go away by fanarting his way through lingo tennis matches like the utterly irresponsible coward that he is.

Been away fir a few days, catching up. Honestly, I think JH’s relational aggression post on IG emotionally manipulated him into showing support for the new gig that she was excited about. And just like emojigate, it’s blown up in his face. Eventually it’ll click for him how damaging his association with her is.

British people are insanely excited when British tennis players perform well at Grand Slam events. So as a noted tennis fan, his excitement re: Emma’s US Open victory was totally predictable. No controversy here, regardless of her age.

by Anonymousreply 344September 12, 2021 4:56 PM

He could be aware of the backlash he’s getting about the activist show, but if you are waiting for him to unlike that pic as a signal he’s aware I don’t think that’s realistic. Unliking it would probably just cause more controversy because it would look like a backpedaling coverup and continue to make it part of the narrative surrounding him rather than just letting it blow over. As much as it might make some people feel better about the situation the usual thing any PR person would advise is to not engage with the issue any more until the controversy dies down especially since it’s not his project and direct problem he’s just linked to it though that like. If she comes out making an apology or backing out of it (unlikely) maybe that would open the door for him to also support that

R380 What's worse is do they realize he has no idea what they actually look like? Their avis are all pictures of him, all they post is pics of him, if he knew who they were and what they looked like do they think he would show any interest in them for that? These twitter girls are so aggressively sexual towards him and something tells me they don't realize they'd never have a chance with him. Ah To be a delusional teenager again. That serotonin boost from him liking a tweet about himself is so strange. If he was liking a post about the person behind the account, I could understand why that would feel personal and exciting. But that isn't the case.

by Anonymousreply 383September 12, 2021 10:07 PM

What does their attractiveness have to do with it? If anything he’s liking their comments of support because any public figure should be grateful of their supportive fans. You don’t have to be attractive to be worthy of a like and a like from someone doesn’t mean they are hitting on you. If that’s what anyone thinks then social media must be very confusing for them lol

R383 Are you literally this obtuse or are you being purposefully stupid? He's doing this as a deflection. Let me sum it up for you with simple concepts. He was getting called out for his piss poor choices on SM by his fans. He's in danger of losing their support when he has something to sell them. So he goes so far above and beyond to get them back to being willing to buy his product by spending HOURS obsessively liking literally everything they're posting about his product as an alternative to actually facing what they're calling him out on.

Let me be absolutely clear for you. The commentary here has nothing to do with the fact that he's "simply" promoting his album. The complaining is because he's VERY CLEARLY NOT just simply promoting his album. Is your narrative capable of understanding that distinction?

by Anonymousreply 396September 12, 2021 10:39 PM

R396 LOL you are in no position to lecture anyone about being obtuse or having any kind of understanding about what’s going on if you think he was actually in danger of losing any material amount of support from liking another person’s post and if you actually think that’s the sole reason he did any of this you are just being delusional. The frenzy caused by his activity is something he has done before ahead of or around other projects and the reaction by the people who have been calling him out clearly shows they still support him because they are able to understand that calling him out on something and supporting him on something else is not mutually exclusive

by Anonymousreply 397September 12, 2021 10:46 PM

R384 I simply find it strange that posting a picture of Ben and having him like it could cause so much joy for someone, as it's *totally* impersonal. I don't understand the serotonin boost that would give a person who is sexually obsessed with Ben (as we've seen from many of his fans, especially the Billy Russo stans) since he's just liking images of himself. If they posted a picture of THEIR self and he liked it, that's another story.

Most of them are probably active in the fandom for the community around it not just for Ben, so I think the likes are also just as much or more about the camaraderie built around everyone’s reactions to receiving a like, not just the personal meaning of receiving a like. At least that’s what it seems like in the sub-community (pun intended lol) of the Darklinas within the Ben fandom. But then there are the extremes that seem way too personal like that person begging for and frustrated with not receiving a like on her tweezer diamond project.

by Anonymousreply 401September 12, 2021 11:02 PM

R401 That’s exactly what I was getting at (diamond tweezer girl) on R390. Some of them feel totally entitled to his attention and when they don’t get it, they throw a tantrum. Conversely, when they do get a like, some of them almost faint and cry uncontrollably (which we have witnessed). I also have it on good authority that when one gets a like and posts it on their story, some of their little buds are happy for them but not all are, totally ignoring it as if it never happened. And when they see him like something - boom! out comes a flurry of copycat posts/tweets to try and catch his eye. Definitely a competitive environment out there.

R392 TBH I was having a bit of a jokey snark at their and BB’s expense.

But no, I wasn’t misunderstanding the concept. A certain percentage of his fans (I wasn’t saying all of them) - according to an article I read recently - want to be in an actual real-life romantic relationship with him. Not just fantasising like most fans do. And another percentage of those have the possibility of becoming obsessive, leading to stalking.

“Dysfunctional and pathological trappings are likely to be arrayed on a continuum, from relatively benign or innocent fan activity to full-fledged obsession.“

The same article, interestingly enough, put a portion of the blame for this on the celebrity.

“Celebrities tend to be higher in narcissism than your average person, and are likely to enjoy and inculcate the adulation they receive.”

That’s life in the celebrity world for you, of course. Live in the limelight, hit like, encourage a potential bunny boiler. Quid pro quo.

by Anonymousreply 404September 13, 2021 1:25 AM

R397 Nope. Firstly, he has never gone this manic in his promotion. Never. Not even remotely close to this far above and beyond what most would consider the normal promotional interaction with fans lane. Today was unequivocally extreme. And I specifically said deflection because that absolutely is what this was, and the linked tweets at R391 R394 R395 and *especially* R403 show that even these girls know that. Everyone knows what went on today. Obviously he was not in real danger of actually losing all their support, but he absolutely did lose control of the narrative for a few days, which could have cost him something eventually. They weren't talking about his upcoming single anymore. They were talking about him being racist adjacent (and sometimes actually racist). So he cut off the sapling doubt *before* it grew roots and that was his *main* mission here with his obsession antics. Today's overproduced show reclaimed their attention back to where he wanted it, favorably talking about his attention to them. Favorably looking at him. Favorably looking at each other again amongst all the likes, instead of sniping at each other over what skin color they had.

This was an engineered hyper adrenaline rush to deflect from the issues his fans had with him. He didn't have to address the issues, he just had to pay attention to these girls for a while. But it's naturally that easy when most of the time he's nearly completely absent from SM. It's all now waning/over, and as R394 said, the mind is returning. But if Ben has succeeded, they'll forget all about their issues by tomorrow and let bygones be bygones, returning to stanning everything he does. It's a far easier path to walk than a principled one. If he hasn't succeeded, and they return to calling out his utterly deaf ears, they might return to being upset with him. But that's a far lonelier path no one has any actual hopes of seeing to it's completion. Maybe they need a legit activist. Those are the people that know how to sacrifice themselves in order to achieve their desired change. How ironic.

R422 I had to do a double take and look again as I thought initially it was a Stan doing a silly post grieving about his beard, but no. Really Ben...really! 👀👀👀Your GDT1st photo reveal opportunity and your shaving your pubes, plopping it next to the lovely leather embossed GDT folder for Barnacle thirst tweets and posting it online.🙃fuck me this is rough to watch!😂😂😂 this is a lower level of SM thirst posts than JH.

Oh well I'm taken by surprised so at least he's keeping me on my toes, who knows what we're gonna get next from BB maybe a BB gimp suit selfie on the eve of his EP drop...he needs to meet the needs of all his Barnacle stan demographic.😂🤷🏾‍♀️🤯

R429 I'm hoping he is on drugs having fun and its something strong to at least get him through this week of degrading himself on SM to bump up his album and merch presence after some of his fans calling him out. Doubling down like never before on SM for an album thirst...That's the 2nd thing in 2020/2021 lockdown that's been unprecedented. Ben have at it! 💃🏾and keep grafting as they say in England😘 Get JH to send you a crate of pishvine wine and get mortal!

It is making me question if it is actually him replying to the majority of the accounts and doing marathon likes (similar to JH on her insta) god his fans would hate that! has he finally hired a SM manager who's doing the thirst likes and interactions after the unfolding shitshow of liking that JH post. Just throwing it out there🤷🏾‍♀️

R437 Well the merch is ugly as fuck😖and I can't with his full name on the hoodies and the optical illusion of his floating head on a tshirt on his merch tshirt!!! is that intentional!?!?!😂😂😂 OMG he's created an ugly fashion BB army and will be making a bucket of cash too...JH will be livid!

I know a lot of you won’t agree as it’s totally self-inflicted, but I have a tiny sneaking bit of sympathy for our Benny Boy. If you think about it, since HoTwat’s European trip he’s been fighting a losing battle to keep everyone’s attention on his vanity project. It’s been pretty relentless: let’s review his ‘gates’…. I can’t guarantee I’ve got these in strict chronological order as there have been so many!

TittyGate, EmojiGate, HCTSgate, HoHCTSGate, FloGate, HoNecklaceGate, HoFairyLionGate, Ho’n’BL11:11Gate, HoActivistGate and finally Flo-HoMerchGate

Every time he’s played a ‘let’s get the fans back on side’ move, something to do with his problematic little buds flares up.

Poor Benny. All he wants to do is dream his dreams and sing his songs but he keeps getting swept up in a ItTakesTwoHo’sToTango frenetic dance. Visions of a dizzy Benny clutching his head in distress. Yes, it’s happened *again* with only 4 days to go.

Well, Benny - if you hadn’t set the music playing in the first place….

Better get that Liking/Replying finger back up to speed.

by Anonymousreply 489September 14, 2021 1:55 AM

R489 I agree with you and also have some sympathy. I think most people have probably dated someone that wasn’t good for them and/or adversely impacted their work/life priorities or another relationship at least for a time and it would suck to have that amplified to the point of impacting one of your dream projects in a very public way (although he continues to bring it on himself by continuing to have any contact with her). But I also am not 100% convinced all this liking and fan engagement and silly comments are a form of deflection as some others believe. I think he could actually just be really elated to be working again after a year and a half and on an awesome, reputable GDT project while at the same time realizing one of his dreams of releasing his own music and so he just really likes to see and rile up the fan excitement because he’s excited. He always said he loved filming Westworld because it was just a care free, fun time on a great project or something like that and he’s had a similar goofy and erratic social media presence as Logan era the last few days. It could be a form of deflection in the sense that he’s not going to let anything get him down right now (not saying I agree with that) or it could be more pessimistic as others believe. It’s impossible to tell what’s really going on of course

by Anonymousreply 490September 14, 2021 2:27 AM

R490 I think it’s probably a combination of both. Excited and depressed at the same time due to the music/new project but knows the fans have been unhappy. I think he must’ve been aware at the time of all the original hating on Flo (2016 was it?) and - rightly or wrongly - there was also a lot of dislike mixed in along with it for her character in the show, but he naively thought that all that had probably gone away. Same as with HoBlackFace. Uh no, Ben.

by Anonymousreply 491September 14, 2021 3:44 AM

I had a vision of the stirring video for rise up, half in color, half in black and white, with Flo as a struggling woman in her beautiful beachfront house and walking alone by the ocean and B singing alone by the ocean, and too bad Ben could not afford the helicopter he certainly felt entitled to.

Seriously, he is really overdoing it - for my taste - for somebody who has never published music, with the Meat Loaf style videos and the K-Pop merchandise.

by Anonymousreply 492September 14, 2021 8:31 AM

Is the helicopter based on a teaser I missed or just a vision? If it doesn’t have FL’s Belly the three legged smiling dog in it it’s already not worth watching IMO. And now that Ben has gone so extremely public with his cat person personality the Belly snub will be even more painful to come to terms with. Maybe Chris Evans will make an appearance

by Anonymousreply 493September 14, 2021 8:43 AM

R493 just a vision. But I‘m sure he would have wanted one. Probably fantasized about Slash standing on a cliff playing the rousing guitar solo. I know I did when I was Ben‘s mental age. Chris Evans could be in it, as Flos love interest, then it would get the Jon Bon Jovi Always vibe.

True. I too would like to struggle in a beautiful beach front house while thinking about the helicopter I’m entitled to. Sounds nicer than struggling to stay up all night working, partly due to my procrastination from the mental energy I’ve spent on Ben Twitter and DL today. Ben does not have enough big dick energy to stand on a cliff playing a guitar. That’s something a dog person would do. Now he’s just an old cat person with a piano and some amateur tshirts for sale.

Julianne Fucking Hough just did what Ben Barnes and his miniature dick have been too arrogant and utterly and absolutely cowardly to do for Eight. Fucking. Months. Did it even take her eight days?

It doesn't even matter whether I or anyone else believes the words in her statement, it's just that it was done. A wrong was properly acknowledged. With it, at least there's a chance that there's hope for a future change in thought/behavior. She chooses whether to live up to the words, and others get to try to hold her accountable to them going forward. That's how a rational *society* moves forward in a better direction, which is all anyone can and should hope for. This was at least a good thing for today.

He liked it. Also just saying you “shared your concerns with the powers that be” is such a cop out this is just damage control while still ensuring she gets paid. She should refuse to be a judge for the rest of the show

by Anonymousreply 514September 14, 2021 10:45 PM

She had no other choice than to face it, acknowledge it and open a conversation about it. The statement was done well enough and in a timely manner. She was left high and dry by CBS, Global Citizen, Usher, Priya and everyone else associated to the project as she was the only one who had a post up and got the full wrath of the world. She ended up being scapegoated.

She made a choice tho, it was the wrong one but she did her part for taking accountability for her actions. Well done to JH and let's hope you stay in the conversation JH and be a positive proactive advocate for change and social issues. Now this is your 2nd opportunity to learn from your social awareness misteps and let's make it your last. The next time will be hard to forgive. If this experience can't humble you then your lost.

As for the other people attached to the project shame on you for running of and hiding and saying doing/nothing. BB your literally a Ken doll with no dick! of course you would like her post and I'm sure you were right there for JH offering your psuedo psychobabble and devoted puppy to stay on the rightside. Regardless of her apologising she will still want to be paid. She's still not found a husband yet.

by Anonymousreply 515September 14, 2021 10:54 PM

R515 Totally agree. At least she made an effort to answer the controversy (even although she wouldn’t have written one word of that). I’m glad she also addressed the Blackface issue because if she hadn’t, that would have been such an oversight. And of course she still wants her pay packet and new husband, so while I do genuinely applaud her for putting this out, let’s not lose sight of who she is.

And yes, of course Benny liked it. I wouldn’t have expected otherwise.

R516 I agree with you she didn't write any of it but that's celebrity life, at least the statement hit all of the points written about the show and her.

Just read some of the comments on the post from her followers. Wow her followers are racists a large majority of them don't acknowledge white privilege, that there was nothing wrong with her blackface, people who called her out were overreacting and having a hiss fit about nothing and believe she should not have apologised. Then there were a portion of them that didn't know what the fuck happened and completely missed the whole situation 🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️😒

[quote]And yes, of course Benny liked it. I wouldn’t have expected otherwise.

R516 Actually I did expect otherwise this time. Because she unquestionably showed up his chicken shit ass today. She did the right, responsible "first step" today. She was an adult today. Ben has never done that. He tried to cover up Montanagate and made a video telling the people calling him out to buzz off. This current fiasco in question literally caused a mini racewar amongst *his* fans LAST WEEK. His response was to OBSESSIVELY deflect and distract from the storm of criticism so he didn't have to address it AGAIN. (Have you noticed the difference yesterday and today? He's still liking things throughout the day and posting promos, but he is No. Where. Near. as MANIC as he was Sunday when this originally came to a head. Today is normal, Sunday obviously had ulterior motives) So either he's so incredibly fucking stupid that he doesn't even realize she's making him look like the fucking asshole that he is and he's perfectly happy to be her cuck for life, or he's so incredibly arrogant that he thinks she did owe the world an apology but he doesn't owe anyone else shit. Honestly, it's a toss up for me.

R517 Oh so JH has the exact same obsequious fanatics that Ben does? They're overreacting, this wasn't a big deal.. you did nothing wrong and shouldn't apologize for anything.. There are cult members everywhere.. *sigh*

by Anonymousreply 519September 15, 2021 1:20 AM

R519 Yes, you have a point but the minute I read it, I thought oh yeah he’s gonna like that. In fact I wondered if he’d maybe penned some of it.

I think *he thinks* that by liking her ‘conversation’ post, that erases the fact that he liked the original post too. I do give her a kudo for posting it but she’s still not off my hook and never will be. But, yeah - we’ll never see that from Ben.

If I was him, I’d’ve quietly unliked the original post once she’d posted her ‘conversation’ piece as I was liking the new one. People would probably not notice now.

by Anonymousreply 520September 15, 2021 1:57 AM

R518 I hear you Syl, and half of me agrees. But the other half remembers that Ben still thinks and behaves like a child the overwhelming majority of the time. He literally collects inspirational quotes like he's heading off to college. He says he spends all his free time watching movies and tv and hanging with his friends at parties like an unemployed college student. He's all about spreading love and kindness like a teenaged girl because life is nothing more than sunshine and rainbows and sparkles and we should all go out and celebrate every day we're alive. He majored in children's literature in college for Christ's sake. He's seemingly a permanent resident of Neverland.

As you well know, normal men outgrow those naive notions long before 40. Ben is still obsessed with them. It's the reason we're always referring to him as a man-child. Maybe we should call him a helplessly infantile adult instead.

R520 But if he did pen some of it, it would prove that he knows how and when to apologize, but always chooses not to when it's his pride on the line. Really bad look! (and also again, not the mark of an adult, but a petulant child) But funnily enough, the very first thing I did when I saw that he liked the apology was check if he unliked the announcement post. Maybe he's moved beyond the "rely on a cover up to erase your mistakes" portion of his life???

by Anonymousreply 521September 15, 2021 2:47 AM

Well I have predicted this statement early on. It was the only thing she could do to pull her neck out and this does concern her livelihood and businesses. Anyway, it was hopefully a wake up call to her.

Ben just likes stuff without thinking. First the one, now the other, plus every 11:11 tweet there is, the darklinas are playing *catch the old man* like Bingo, knowing full well he reacts to the most ludicrous adoration and using it to their advantage. Ah well. The rest may just be heaven …

by Anonymousreply 522September 15, 2021 6:44 AM

An afterthought … Some of Ben‘s fans think it is call-out-worthy for him to like a post by a friend (as in tip with finger). They are the POCs. Because it regards them. They have tweeted and tweeted about it and made memes. And it was just one little like. When someone who is immunocompromised like Ross gets pissed after Covid travel, he is called a maniac. I guess it‘s the perspective. If Covid killed mostly 18 year olds, I‘d like to see them go.

by Anonymousreply 523September 15, 2021 7:23 AM

BB doesn't have the backbone to unlike the post coz that would mean he was wrong. Also JH hired a professional to write this not BB "child lit. I won an award at college" manchild ken doll. No like the last racial disaster JH got someone to write a statement then someone (damage control professional agent) also spoke on her behave.

519 Yes BB has camed down a bit, maybe his anxiety levels have dropped now that JH has done a statement which he thinks is also on his behave too, or he's stopped popping party pills and has passed out from the thirst tweetathon.

R521 110% that Ben is a man child, but nonetheless he's a legal adult and doesn't need to be #Freed. Or in other words, his stans are showing their flaming hypocrisy once again. They all undoubtedly think of themselves as feminists, but what are they doing?

Blaming the woman. Creating an "evil whore" narrative around JH that not only puts all of the blame on her, but also removes Ben's agency (as the kids these days say.) He was not kidnapped, dragged to Montana against his will, and raped.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here. If I have free time later I'll take my tirade to Twitter.

I thought her apology was a bunch of word salad fake accountability coz at the same time she's still accepting the paycheque and going to do the show. Evil whore indeed. Add manipulative to the list.

I really don't think Ben's in a relationship with her and I don't think they were anything more than friends. I know that's an unpopular opinion but at this point it seems like they've barely been in the same country or state for any period of time.

by Anonymousreply 530September 15, 2021 4:02 PM

R530 I used the word relationship in the more general sense. I agree with everything you say, in my prediction of her statement I claimed she was going to go on about how she‘d say she‘d be LEARNING and right I was. My new thing is to say that I am *deeply listening*.

She grew up and lives in such a different reality (we know certainly not a healthy one), to really understand what the criticism was about. As do the people who are now popping up in her comments. The prototypical white republican American. They don‘t even know how much damage they do.

Otherwise, it would bother them when he messes up and they wouldn't spend all their time making clickbait posts to get him to like them best.

Also, the Ho‘s apology is all about her own growth again. About the woman she is becoming. She is so self-centered, she does not get it‘s not about her! She doesn‘t get that by evolving her spiritual being it changes nothing from the fact that she is privileged no matter how she listens and learns. You have to look away from yourself and change structures. And it‘s hard not to use privilege. When I was young and I needed something important (a flat, a car, a credit card), I used to ask my dad to come along, because he is the prototype of the white old man. You have to vote for and advocate for laws and structures that disable these privileges, not on a personal, but on a societal level. Otherwise there will always be me bringing my dad along and the realtor/bank manager will give him the nod.

R550 No harm done. It also proved some of my points, that he'd never give any of these rabid messes the time of day in real life. These OTT sexually aggressive posts are so odd directed at someone who has IMO very little sex appeal in spite of his objective beauty. He's decidedly non-sexual (I've said in the past I find his sex scenes extremely awkward and not believable) and the level of projection onto him is frankly bizarre.

Whoever said these girls are doing this more for the sense of community it gives them and the occassional like from Ben is probably correct. He gives us nothing to work with so they really have to dig deep into their imaginations to be this level of obsessed.

R553 also the S2 punisher Russo character gave a glimpse of BB as an alpha male type and they've just stuck to that like a Barnacle! literally!!

R555 As usual Lilly we are in sync! Regarding your last point, that has to be it. I thought his acting was good as S2 Billy (although S1 suited him much better in every possible way) but I still could never believe him as an alpha male. Everything about him screams beta. Even as S2 Billy, he was always crying and having nervous breakdowns and throwing tantrums. I just *so* don't get where this BDSM version of him comes into play. He's never played that in any of his roles imo, and even when he tried or came close, it wasn't believable. He's simply too delicate, catlike, graceful and sensitive.

I personally don’t hate it, I do think he has a beautiful voice but I can’t enjoy it because of about who that song is
