    If he was just describing his experience that would be one thing and he is entitled to that. However, he is starting to venture into a "disinformation" campaign and he is not entitled to that.

    If someone can't stand the heat, they should stay out of the fire. If you start throwing out hand grenades you should expect a little blowback from those with opposing perspectives. I hardly consider that trolling.

    Sorry to call you out, but a virologist would play a PRS.

    Is OP triggered by fruitcake?

    We need explanations.

    I suppose that could depend on how gleefully someone is waiting for that blowback.

    The only sure way to detect trolling is to observe the poster after submitting the original post.

    Who knows? Some may really want that for whatever reasons. They may love self inflicted pain or just don't care.

    So you're saying Weinstein himself was the academy? Come on, re-read the OP. It sounds like this Fiona Apple was saying "The VMA's are BS, this industry is awful" while at the podium accepting their award (that gave her some publicity.) Then did basically the same for the Grammy's only she didn't win so she had no podium.

    Didn't the Sex Pistols refuse to show up for their nomination cause they don't give two sh!ts about the industry? That's the way to do it. Apple got paid to be there and protest, gimme a break.

    The main issue here is that people keep consuming this inauthentic nonsense.

    From her early beginnings, I never got the sense that she was that much of a team player. She had a lot of attention at first, but I don't have a clue where that is today.

    The VMA thing was 1997...

    The remark about the Grammy’s was made during an interview with the Guardian magazine. Not AT the Grammy Awards night. Suggesting she would have made it a “Podium” issue 24 years later based on 1997 behavior is pure speculation.

    You can keep your monopoly money ;) She's the one who's outraged, I'm just amazed anyone is listening to her anymore.
