I wish I were excited for Muppet’s Most Wanted

Ricky GervaisSo, this post has been started and stopped over the past few days, especially after the fierce Superbowl Muppet commercials.  I’m taking up a challenge by Disney Donna Kay to blog today.  I don’t usually put disclaimers like this one up, but this might be a good post to skip if you’re triggered by ableism or people being buttholes.

I love the Muppets and loved the The Muppets.  However, Muppets Most Wanted has been doing nothing for me.  I don’t care for Tina Fey; however, Ricky Gervais bugs me.  I first heard of him during his ableist slur* gate.  He’s apologized, but honestly, I ain’t got time for people who think saying stuff like that is ok.  But Hedy, you argue, plenty of people who say messed-up stuff all the time.  I reply, absolutely (I also don’t believe that intentions matter), but I can choose not to support someone who is a jerk.

Are you excited?  Am I off base? Let me know  in the comments,  or on  TwitterGoogle Plus,  FacebookRSS Feed, or  newsletter!

*I’m not posting it here, but it’s a shortened version referring to folks with Down Syndrome which has essentially been used as a replacement r-word.

  2. Donna Kay says:

    I can’t say that I am excited either, but to be honest I have never been a huge Muppet fan or a Tina Fey fan. Ricky Gervias just gets on nerves – his style of comedy doesn’t appeal to me. So you’re not alone Hedy, I’m right there with you.

  3. I can’t wait to see The Muppets Most Wanted. From the trailers I’ve watched it looks like the ole gang is back on another zany adventure.
