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.

^^^^^


Oooooooohhh! I was trying to figure out why it was a problem. Yeh, here in the US calling someone a spazz or spastic basically just means they are hyper and wacky… As far as I know anyway. One of my favorite video games as a kid had a character named Spaz. Thanks for enlightening me, tumblr. You’re cool sometimes.

ok sorry, I keep seeing this come up on my dash so I thought I’d put in my two cents

heres the thing that i wanna say about the recent abbysucks debacle

yes we need more variety. but we need it in tv. in the media. making fun of young people on tumblr?? yes good obviously that will help(it wont). of course they are going to copy styles they are young and impressionable and there is nothing wrong with that.

and oh they also see that ____ type of character doesn’t exist in the media, so they are going to fill in that niche and make that character as an OC! maybe they don’t have much background. it’s just an OC, it’s a thing someone decided to draw because they wanted to see it drawn. and that is ok! it’s good! yes there will be some copying. you might end up with samey characters. that’s alright. the young artists will grow out of it and come up with their own art styles eventually, and the samey characters will evolve to be really cool well thought out characters, with loads of different backgrounds (and good representation!)

but for now lets just get along and let people make chubby black lesbian punk OCs. its not hurting anyone. just like drawing people with colored noses back in ‘11 didn’t hurt anyone. and in this case, they have a legitimate reason to do it besides copying the latest trend! (and it’s still better than the deviantart trend of drawing nothing but pale anorexic kids, something i have tried to break out of myself because wow one body type, you need so much artistic skill to draw one body type and nothing else, wow many skill, very accomplish artist)

tldr dont yell at kids for drawing things that make them happy how about that yes
