Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
hey tiny lesson time. ok yeah here in the UK ‘spastic’ and ‘spaz’ are derogatory. it happened after a charity was set up for people with cerebral palsy was called “the spastic society” and then people started using it as a term to mean stupid/inept/dumb and other things. and then it really took off when some guy was on blue peter in the 80s w/ cerebral palsy, they used the term spasticated to describe him and kids being the little shits they are started calling friends spastics when they did something stupid. the bbc did a ‘worst word vote' thing like 10 years ago and spastic came in second after retard.
so yeah him apologising for that’s pretty awesome.
Yeah all this, I also affirm that the US use of “spastic” is not at all the UK use, so I echo pretty much everything people have already said on here.
Wow I did NOT know that- that’s horrible but at the same time really interesting? It makes me wonder if there are words in the US that we find offensive that aren’t in the UK? or that sort of thing?

then where the hell tHAT BITCH GOING
I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.
and such is the way of bunnies and weaponry.
