I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Aziz Ansari is the latest celebrity to be accused of ‘respecting women’ a little TOO hard. Cue the backlash and rather surprising counter backlash. Turns out Aziz may have finally been a bridge too far, but the complaints don’t centre on the paper thin accusations ‑its all about that race baby.
To quote Caitlin Flanagan of The Atlantic:
“I thought it would take a little longer for the hit squad of privileged young white women to open fire on brown-skinned men. I had assumed that on the basis of intersectionality and all that, they’d stay laser focused on college-educated white men for another few months.”
I feel sorry for Aziz, I really do, and in the spirit of things I wrote him a heartfelt poem:
Please don’t slander my ally Pajeet, don’t drag his name through the shitting street. He just wanted to see your pretty bobs, #MeToo is meant for white-skinned slobs. Your vagana too he may have grabbed, but you’re far too privileged to have blabbed.
