It is no secret that we will put someone down. OK. Scratch that. It’s no secret that we will beat someone with our trunk sale Fendi’s for a laugh. But even we Dames draw the line at making jokes about people stricken with Cancer.
However, there are many heartless bitches in the world, from Canadian magazines to the New York Times, to prissy-ass Bill Paxton, who had no problem making Michael C. Hall (who wore a cap throughout the Golden Globes ceremony, no doubt because the actor is suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma) the butt of their jokes.
“On the live blog for Canadian magazine MacLeans, Brian D. Johnson didn’t have as much discretion and wrote, ‘Michael C. Hall wins best actor in a TV drama series for Dexter. He looks like a bit of a psycho cause he’s wearing a black toque. What’s up with that?”
Even the New York Times wasn’t immune. Check out the tweet from their The Moment blog: ‘Is Michael C. Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie? Don’t get the hat or what he’s hiding under it.’”
But the winner of poorest loser award this year goes to actor Bill Paxton who lost the Best Actor Drama Globe to Hall. When cameras panned to Bill, it looked as though he said, “I lost to the cancer card,” to those sitting with him.
Hey Bill, perhaps you lost to a better actor. Unfortunately for you, many of the voters remember a little movie you did called “Twister” and we’re still waiting for those two hours of our lives back. At least the Twitter offender admitted he was in poor taste. He later gave a lukewarm apology.
So sorry that Michael C. Hall has had cancer. Thanks for clarifying why he is wearing a knitted skull cap.
