Netflix Is Facing A Boycott After Clips Resurface Of “Beef” Star David Choe Admitting To “Rapey Behavior”
Another day another resurfaced clip. At this point, you’d think celebs would have assistants with the sole purpose of scouring the internet for problematic videos/tweets and wiping them from existence before they fall into the hands of someone with actual morals. Artist, writer, and actor David Choe, one of the breakout stars from Netflix’s new hit show Beef, is being dragged after journalist Aura Bogado posted an old clip of David calling himself a “successful rapist” on his podcast DVDASA (stands for Double Vag, Double Anal, Sensitive Artist *eyeroll*). And now Netflix users are calling for a boycott against the show as David Choe tries to scrub the clip from the internet.
Keke Palmer famously did not recognize former Vice President Dick Cheney in a Vanity Fair lie-detector test that immediately became a meme and gave birth to the phrase“Sorry to this man” was born! But Keke actually doesn’t know lots of other people either. In a new VF segment promoting her Jordan Peele movie, Nope, which seems to be about aliens, Keke is clueless about the alien-investigation duo from the 90s, The X Files‘ Scully, and Mulder. “Sorry to this man,” it’s time to meet your new baby sibling: “And who the Hell are they?”
The memes are flying since W Magazine published its annual Best Performances issue featuring photographs taken by world-renowned photographer Juergen Teller, who, even though his aesthetic hasn’t really changed much since the 90s, has been getting roasted on Twitter for his crimes against glamour. But even though my arts education consists of one art history class taken at Laney Jr. College (B-, thank you very much. I know my columns), even I can tell that not just any asshole with an iPhone can be a great photographer. It takes a real visionary like Juergen to talk Robin Wright into squatting behind a tree in broad daylight. I mean, he did refuse to photograph Miley Cyrus so we know he has taste!
