Without any irony whatsoever, Harvey Weinstein and the makers of the documentary “Bully” stirred up a whole lot of PR for their film through an orchestrated public bullying campaign of the MPAA.
Unfortunately, that hasn’t yet translated to a whole lot of box office.
Enter Justin Bieber, who has donated a song to aid the bullies in their bullying anti-bully campaign:
The singer encourages fans to see the Weinstein Co.’s high-profile documentary, which now has a PG-13 rating.
Justin Bieber is lending his support in a big way to Lee Hirsch’s high-profile documentary Bully.The Weinstein Co. announced Monday that Bieber is allowing his song “Born to be Somebody” — written by Diane Warren — to be used in a new television ad for the film, which chronicles the bullying epidemic in America’s schools.
“My fans are always for supporting a great cause. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of as an entertainer,” Bieber said in a statement. “I hope they see Bully with their friends and help start the conversation so we can end bullying.”
And so the campaign to emasculate America into a bunch of victim-crybabies in need of Big Daddy Government marches on.
In other news, Justin Bieber is a guy.
In the end, the film hasn’t shaken the ratings system, hasn’t broken through at the box office and will set no precedents at the MPAA.
If just every once in a while someone in Hollywood would spend a little time in the real world, these things wouldn’t happen.
First off, having Harvey Weinsten as the face of an anti-bullying campaign is like having Justin Bieber as the national spokes-model for masculinity.
Secondly, we in the real world knows how to handle bullies on our own, thank you very much, and we don’t need a bunch publicity-seeking Hollywoodists telling us what to do.
We all know a cynical, phony cause celebre when we see one; we all know a hypocritical Trojan horse when we see one; and we all know that the only thing this campaign is truly interested in is making illegal speech liberals dislike and turning our boys into anything but men.
Want to end bullying? Teach kids how to stand up for themselves and fight back.
Want to criminalize free speech and emasculate America into a nation of crybaby victims who bully those who they disagree with using passive-aggressive anti-bullying campaigns? Make a film called “Bully.”
It’s extraordinary that the only “criminals” the Left doesn’t want to coddle are bullies.
Destroy Biff Tannen!
Keep your filthy hands off our kids, Hollywood.
Especially you bullying Polanski-supporters like Weinstein.
