IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING NICE…. FOR PETE’S SAKE DON’T TWEET IT.

I am going to keep this one short – following in the widespread wake of the Roseanne Barr debacle…

It’s quite simple, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

Doesn’t matter who you are, how much ‘influence’ you hold, how much money you make or what you do for a living…. there is never any excuse for racism, prejudice or any other kind of ignorance.

It is no longer okay to ‘speak your mind’, if what your mind is spouting, is utterly abhorrent and most importantly – uncalled for and unnecessary.

Time is up.

We are coming into an era where we are now accountable for EVERYTHING. Our behaviour, our remarks, the way we treat colleagues and staff, how we handle people of different religions/ sexuality – even our sense of entitlement.

It’s no longer acceptable to be unaccepting. Period.
It’s no longer acceptable to be sleezy, or biased, or rude, or indifferent, or prejudiced.

It is always possible to be kind. It is ALWAYS possible to think nice thoughts about others but if you find it a struggle, it is ALWAYS possible to stay quiet.

It is NEVER okay to be nasty and ugly.

So, lesson learned at the cost of many careers and a whole lot of future. I feel very sorry for the cast and crew who lost so much over this.

Celebrities, everyone, it is time to stop using the internet as a dumping ground for your vitriol. If you wouldn’t say it someone’s face, keep it in your head and give yourself a virtual slap on the wrist.

Then go out and spread some kindness.

Ladies, please pass it on and on.
