The List of “Problematic Roles” the Actors Need to Immediately Apologize For

Recently, sixteen Hollywood actors came out and said they regretted their “Problematic roles.”  Yes, they have actually apologized for something that was formerly known as “acting.”  The thing that we always thought was their job description –  getting a lot of money for impersonating someone who is not you.

Today, playing someone who is not you is the definition of “micro aggression.”  Gwyneth Paltrow wants to be paid 10 million dollars for playing a rich white liberal snob.  If I wanted to see that in a movie, I’d pay $15 bucks to my neighbor for having a “Black Lives Matter” sign on their front lawn.

Because I want to get my invitation to the next Hollywood cocktail party, I came up with a list of movies that I find very problematic, and I think that all the actors involved in these movies need to immediately apologize for their roles.

  • Dustin Hoffman needs to apologize for his role in Rain Man for the pain he caused to the autistic community.

 

  • He also needs to apologize to the transgender community for his role in Tootsie.

 

  • Antony Hopkins needs to apologize for his role in Silence of the Lambs.  That role could’ve been assigned to a real cannibal.

 

  • Tom Hanks needs to apologize for his role in Forrest Gump.   His portrayal trivialized the issue of low intelligence among the Hollywood elite.

 

  • Bruce Willis needs to apologize for playing a dead man in The Sixth Sense.  That role could have been given to someone who was actually dead.

 

  • Eddie Murphy needs to apologize for his role in Coming to America.  Eddie Murphy was not the real prince of Zamunda, and he owes an apology to everyone who believed that he was.

 

  • Robin Williams needs to posthumously apologize to the gay community for his’ role in Birdcage.  Robin Williams should have come out as gay before playing that role.  Even if he was not gay.

 

  • The actor who played Thing needs to apologize to “people with limb differences” for his role in Addams Family.  Especially to people that have no body parts other than a hand.  They were portrayed in the movie as “creepy and sinister”, and that was just plain offensive.

 

  • The little boy from Kindergarten Cop needs to apologize to the nonbinary people for promoting hateful stereotypes.

 

Here is the list of movies that did not have “Problematic roles”, and should be the golden standard for Hollywood in the woke era.

  • All Woody Allen movies. Woody Allen always casts himself as a short middle-aged weird Jewish guy – and that is who he is in real life. 
  • Dumb and dumber. The movie directors actually gave Jim Carey an IQ test to make sure he accurately represents the role he was playing.
  • Being John Malcovich. This is where John Malkovich literally plays himself. Brilliant.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. This just in – feet are making a case that hands got too much attention in this article and citing the movie role in My Left Foot.
    Hollywood is on an apology tour for ACTING! This would be great satire if it was not all so sadly indicative of how absurd “woke ” world has changed our cultural norms. I give it 3 months before half of those on the article’s list come out and apologize too.
