Mischa Barton Is A Fucking Idiot

In today’s installment of “Celebrities Being Fucking Clueless About Hot-Button Issues,” I bring to you: Mischa Barton. Get your Tylenol ready, kids, ‘cause this is some stupid of epic proportions.


Before I get into the idiocy, first, some background that I'm sure (I hope) you all know to begin with. On Tuesday in Louisiana, Alton Sterling, a black man, was tackled to the ground and shot by police officers. A bystander recorded it and the video made the rounds on social media. You know how this goes. We all kinda thought this would go the way of other similar police shootings…but then, yesterday, IT HAPPENED AGAIN. This time, Philando Castile—also black, also male—was shot and killed by police during a traffic stop, and the world was basically like, "Are you fucking kidding me?"

K so we all know how in times like these, people flock to social media to express their opinions, however ill-informed they may be. This time was no different. One such person who probably should’ve kept her fingers off the keyboard was none other than Marissa Cooper Mischa Barton. In light of these recent tragedies, Mischa had this to say:

Oh boy. Dis bitch.

A few things.

It’s great that you’re expressing solidarity and all, but do you really think a fucking boat—basically the visual depiction of "white people shit"—is the place to do it? While you’re holding a nice-looking wine glass filled with what appears to be rosé? Really? This is not the time to show the world how much of a basic white girl you are, Mischa. Two people have died! 

This picture says, “Look at me, I’m like, so deep. See how I’m surrounded by the ocean. Also please note that I'm hot and rich." Which would be fine for like, your post-vaca Instas, but not for trying to discuss WHITE PRIVILEGE and fucking racial disparities in America. Like....girl.

Now let’s get to the real idiocy at hand. You don’t waste any time! “Thank god the pigs get caught on camera now…”

…I actually hung my head in shame when I read this.

Bitch, are you stupid? Police have been caught on camera assaulting (and in some/many cases killing) black men since the fucking 90's. And do you think because these incidents get caught on camera, justice will be served? Yeah. Uh. Maybe you should fire up the ol’ Google machine and ask how that played out for Rodney King. Or Eric Garner. Or Tamir Rice. Or Walter Scott. I'll wait. You acting like this is new is making me embarrassed for you.

OK, also, it’s cute that you’re supporting gun control, but like, Mischa? When people (refuse to) talk about gun control, they're talking about gun control for civilians. These guys were killed by on-duty police officers. On-duty police officers are by literal, actual definition, NOT CIVILIANS. And if you don't believe me, you can look it up right here.

Again, appreciate the sentiment, but it’s irrelevant atm (kinda like your acting career tbh).

Anyway, Mischa, you tried your best, but sometimes your best just isn’t enough. You could try Sears, or like, a publicist who isn’t completely tone-deaf, or like, the goddamn internet.
