When Multi-Millionaire’s Act Like Ass-Hats

Ode to the Low-Rent POS

asshat1Actors, musicians, and athletes have been put on a pedestal since the beginning of time. Some are modest, humble, gracious, and so very thankful and polite to everyone that they meet. But those aren’t the ones who make the headlines. The headlines are for the Ass-Hats – the haughty low-rent turds who believe that they are better than the rest – the one’s who believe that it’s ALL about them, ALL of the time. Their egos are mammoth, their heads are swelled, yet the world continues to embrace their most egregious stupidity.

The beautiful people have been making jerks out of themselves for eons, and in recent days, they did not disappoint.

US OPEN CLIJSTERS V WILLIAMS“If I could, I would take this (expletive) ball and shove it down your (expletive) throat. You better be (expletive) right! You don’t (expletive) know me!”

Ah…the sweet and loving words of tennis star Ms. Serena Williams, as she verbally abused and threatened an official during a match in this week’s US Open. Williams was called for a foot fault at a most crucial point in the match and launched a verbal tirade against a timid woman line judge who looked as if she thought Serena was about to get medieval on her ass. The official quickly ran to the dude in the lifeguard chair and the next thing you know, Williams is sent to the showers.

Tennis_Tantrums_01Australian tennis veteran Renae Stubbs said, “I don’t think people realize the amount of stress players are under.” What a bullshit comment, one that I personally took offense to. Can we imagine the stress the likes of Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Derek Jeter, and Eli Manning, have been under? All have acted like class acts and perfect gentlemen while performing on the biggest stage, at the highest levels humanly possibly. And of course US Open announcer John McEnroe, the biggest spoiled brat of them all, defended Williams, claiming that you can’t make a call of that nature in that situation. Johnny Mac may have been the biggest ass-hat of them all as he threw little-rich-boy temper tantrums during his hey day, and abused officials beyond reproach. The guy couldn’t stand losing and it turned my stomach to watch his infantile rants during high profile matches.

“Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”

Those were the poignant words of one Kanye West who grabbed the mic from Taylor Swift’s hands while she was about to give her heartfelt thanks to the audience, as she won the award for Best Female Performance. The young star looked in shock as West acted like what Sanford and Son’s Aunt Esther used to refer to as a “Fool’s idea of a fool.” I personally wish Esther was there to bitch-slap that ingrate upside the head as he so rudely made a bigger jackass of himself than Johnny Knoxville ever could.

ng south park 080409“I was excited to be onstage because I just won the award. And then I was excited that Kanye West was onstage. Then, I wasn’t excited anymore,” Swift said, afterwards. Thankfully, Radio City Music Hall security escorted the boisterous West out of the building where he walked 7th Ave looking for a place that served some “fishsticks.” (South Park reference for those in the know.)

513649429_fc3d18e8a4Low-rent multi-millionaires have forever been making a mockery of themselves for as long as I remember, yet we still attend their movies, listen to their music, and watch their ball games. Kid Rock likes to mix it up whenever he frequents his favorite Waffle House. Tommy Lee has been known to assault a person or two. Denis Rodman has performed britney-spears-bald-400a030207his freak show antics. Melissa Rivers showed her obnoxious, spoiled little rich-bitch side on the Apprentice. Rosie O’donnell has waved her man-hands in irate disgust. Terrell Owns, is well, he’s Terrell Owens, dammit. And Britney Spears has so eloquently proven that you can take the hillbilly trash from the trailer, but…

They are world famous, have zillions of dollars, and they are better than all of us. Yes they are, so they think. In reality, they are low-rent personalities who live in a high-rent economic client. They think their shit don’t stink, they travel in posses, they love their bling, and they truly believe that they are ‘all that.’

Ass-hats, every last one of ‘em.

Peace, out.
