Sounds like YOU are the Trump fan, poisonivy, because you’re living in a fantasy world. The majority of members on this board do not support Trump. In fact, I’m suspended on Twitter today for a nasty tweet I posted in response to one of our treasonous POTUS’ heinous tweets. So, no, you don’t know me, nor do you get to speak for me.

Tony Kushner would never say something this idiotic. But that’s beside the point. Since you live in a fantasy world, I take it you missed the playwright I gave as an example who I’d respond to similarly,

Let’s put it this way: if you’re a playwright and you say things like this, I’ll think you’re an idiot. Whether you’re black, white, asian, hispanic, mixed, gay, straight, male, female, neutral, whatever. This is an idiotic statement I’m responding to, not his race. Just as I am now responding to your assumption and accusation that members on this board are biased based on their race.

So, please. Check your “woke” status and stop slinging accusations about people you don’t even know. I know that’s easy to do while hiding behind an avatar, but hey. Give it a rest.

"Sullivan and Paul* are exceptions bc they are both gay adjacent." (Gay adjacent??)


Wot?

The problem with calling this humor is that the doubling down negates the idea that this was all said in jest. Putting aside the subjectivity of humor, there's way too much pointed specificity for this to be a joke.

Well it took longer than usual, but it looks like this thread is now officially a dumpster fire.

I’d say he got the reaction he was looking for. Jeremy 1, BWW 0.

Jeremy might be one of the nicest people I have ever met in the theater industry, some people just don't get his personality, he is playing the game by saying FU to it at the same time, he is adiment about ticketing accessibility, creating space for more diverse audiences, calling for more diverse voices in theaterical criticism and supports his fellow writers at every turn on his platforms and honestly dude has a movie at Sundance and another project at Warner Bros already, I do really think he is about to jump of the playwrighting thing very quick tbh

Remove the sarcasm and your response is correct.

Is Twitter a format known for examples of profound thought?

Somebody said something goofy on a platform mostly used for vanity purposes (i.e., messages are rarely meant for any specific receiver(s). They're meant to draw attention to the sender from as many people as possible: Hear ME! Look at ME! Follow ME!)

Meh. Somebody tweeted something goofy (again). Just another day at the office.

This is exact reasons why social media is just ruining society. [...]"

Twitter is a catalyst. It can't ruin society. We are the society. We can choose whether/not we are ruined by a mere tool (see what I did there?) wink
