A lot of people are asking what exactly Jared and Aisha said and I am literally too angry to want to retype it all but I just tweeted about it, so here:
And that’s basically the summary of it, there was more but I was a bit distracted by rage to catch all…
I wanna defend Aisha Tyler so bad because I love her but I think she chose a very very poor choice in words. And unfortunately, these aren’t things that can easily be overlooked. You don’t just say you’re glad women aren’t on a show or that any group isn’t on a show. I feel like she wanted to suggest that spn demonstrates the emotional relationships of men and that such is rare on TV (which it is) but man man man I just can’t defend that. I hope she apologizes or shows some kind of acknowledgement that what she said was worded horribly. (I really really think she meant that she’s glad about it giving emotional light to men and not that women were excluded but I 100% grasp why it just comes off so offensive. Especially given Jared’s statements)
As for Jared Padelecki, he’s been saying flippant crap for years. From the one time he completely brushed off someone’s question about PETA and whether or not he supported the killing of animals that they deemed unreleasable, to when he was posting everything about Justin Bieber- he’s just kind of always saying something when he doesn’t need to be and all that commentary was just another extra thing he’s been doing.
It’s unbelievable sometimes what people will say, regardless of celebrity status, just because they feel as though they’re too loved to get called out for it.
