Steve Martin Did A Bad Thing - Needed An Edumacation


Poor Steve Martin - the internet is becoming, like, The Hills Have Eyes or some shit for racism:


Then came dismay at the unwarranted betrayal - did Steve Martin ever have a Ghetto Pass? He plays the banjo, so I don't know. The banjo can make racism sound happy, like Martin famously said it could, for Nixon.

Big laugh.

 



O.K., Stevie, you're white, you're rich - you've used race, blacks and Indians (almost exclusively) for comedy before - what do you say? It's the Buddha calling, baby - Big Time. You know the New Age rules - you and Tina Fey made a movie about them:


BE HUMBLE!
Sorry about that. RT @illmami: I'm not totally offended but I don't want to be the one saying it. It was witty. But nawl. Not today.



Ooooh - EXCUUUUUUUUUUUSE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! 

Not. Humble. Enough. Steve. 

Too "sophisticated" for any American but the cocksucking French art lovers you're known to hang with now - try again:

I did apologize. But again, a second later I realized what an offensive thing I'd done. Deep bow.



Better - 12 Years of Cool - but know something: 

 You've been walking a very-thin cultural line, for a long time now, Mr. Mark Twain Award winner and - like blogging professors - we expect better of you. 

And we're very disappointed when you fail us. Believe it or not - we're counting on you. 

And it's important that we do.

Yeah, I learned that.


Good - so go hold up your end and keep helping with the others who can't:

And stay afloat, Holmes - we love you,...
