Today it was reported by E! Online (I was linked there from IMDB, I swear!) that Glee Creator Ryan Murphy ranted about the Kings of Leon, calling them a bunch of self-centred assholes (he is American, so don’t call me out on the Americanism – though, having said that, IMDB doesn’t list his birth place, which it usually does. It’s like reading the Splinter Cell manual; everyone’s birthplace is listed except for Sam’s. Is Ryan Murphy a member of Third Echelon? The answer, quite simply, is ‘no’). The reason for this outburst, apparently, is that the Kings of Leon were asked by Murphy to allow him to use one of their songs in the show ‘Glee’, and they refused, basically likening it to “selling out”. Murphy responded with his tirade on the grounds that a band who refuse to sell out in order to promote a crappy TV show must be sick, and incredibly anti-arts education. His full tirade went as follows:
"Fuck you, Kings of Leon! They're self-centred assholes and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It's like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."
Yes, Murphy, because seeing a 23 year old actress dressed as a schoolgirl poorly mimicking a song by a, let’s face it, not that great band, is really what “arts education” is all about.
Well, it's certainly an education. Of sorts...
Also, I’m going to start calling you Ryan so people don’t think I’m talking to Robocop.
Am I the only one who thinks these two look disturbingly similar?
Within minutes of the article being published on E!, hundreds of people had commented, expressing their outrage at what a self-centred asshole Ryan Murphy is for thinking his show is the one great source of education for kids, and that listening to the original tracks by the bands who wrote the songs is somehow criminal, and that all bands need to sell out to help educate the children. Aside from the odd troll, and a Glee fan who is so dumb they actually wrote the word “then” when they meant to say “than” and put in. Lots of unnecessary. Full Stops. It seems that pretty well everyone now considers Ryan Murphy to be a douchebag (which reminds me, can you believe they’re making a UK version of Jersey Shore called ‘Geordie Shore’? I mean, come on, that’s practically going to be an advert for ethnic cleansing!) who needs to take his head out of his own self-righteous arse. However, before you start thinking you’ve accidentally clicked on perezhilton.com, I feel it is my duty to inform you that this is not the first time Ryan has come out with an offensive rant against a group of individuals and tried to pass it off as being a moral argument, and some of these totally legitimate quotes I have acquired from his ex-publicist show that there is a far, far darker side to Ryan Murphy than any Glee fan would believe...
RYAN MURPHY ON...
"Fuck ‘The Situation’. That self-centred Douchebag gets about 12 girls’ numbers in a night, then just chucks out the numbers of the girls he doesn’t want to see again. He’s missed that guys like me spend night after night in the club, and never get a single girl’s number, and that we would literally pay good money to buy girls’ numbers off him, so we can call them at night and find out what they’re wearing. It’s like, OK, hate on a playa when you should be hating on The Game. Which you just lost.”
On Social Healthcare
"Fuck you, Barrack Obama! You’re a socialist bastard in a country where for some reason calling someone a socialist is considered a bad thing, and you missed the big picture. You missed that a 7-year-old kid who gets cancer probably did something to anger Jesus, which resulted in him getting Leukaemia when he doesn’t have any health insurance to cover the treatment, so doesn’t deserve our pity. It's like, OK, hate on America. You can make fun of Capitalism all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is
On the Anti-Creationism Movement
"Fuck you, Stephen Hawking! You’re a self-centred Spacker and you missed the big picture. It doesn’t matter if you’re good at science – you’re in a fucking Wheelchair and you sound like a robot. It’s like, OK, you’re the smartest man in the world. Big deal. You can solve all the physics problems you want, but at the end of the day the only physical activity you’ll ever beat me in is a drooling contest. If I ever see you in person, I’m going to push you down a flight of stairs, you Special Olympics-competing mother fucker!"
Fuck this guy too.
"Fuck you, Nelson Mandela! You ANC terrorist bastard! You missed that guys like me don’t want to have to catch a bus full of smelly black people when we’re trying to get to a World Cup Match. It’s like, OK, hate on White People just because you’re not as good as us. You can eat all the Chicken and Watermelon you want, but keep all your dirty African friends away from me so I don’t get robbed!"
On The Liberalisation of the Education System
"Fuck you, Liberals! You’re all child corrupting scumbags! Why are school children bombarded with homosexual references in maths, geography and science lessons as part of a Government-backed drive to promote the gay agenda? It’s like, OK, bring in a gay curriculum like it’s no laughing matter. You can make fun of the Űber-right wing fascist parties all you want, but at the end of the day, they’re the ones who are going to survive when the rest of the world turns gay and stops making babies. Which is blatantly what will happen if you teach school children about seahorses and emperor penguins and other faggy animals. We should teach kids more important things. Like Fuckin' Magnets - How do they work???"
I hope Fox takes note and pulls Glee from the air as a result of these statements. Then again, the last 2 quotes are probably going to land Ryan Murphy his own show on FOX News where he calls out Glenn Beck for being such a democrat-enabler, so maybe we don’t want Fox to get wind of this? Whatever the final result, Ryan Murphy is an angry, angry man, and should not be trusted...
He's just murdered someone with that award. You can tell from the cold, dead look in his eyes...
