Hey, fellow Americans! Guess what?! Holier-than-thou actor and British homosexual Rupert Everett doesn’t like us!
Why? Because apparently we Yanks don’t stand up and fight for what’s right. Oh, and we all talk like Carrie Bradshaw.
Everett starts his rant on a global scale, griping about the world of “copy cats” who don’t stand up for what’s right. “We’re such a world of copycats. All the problems we have now, they’re all really about people not daring to stand up and say anything.” Apparently this complaint inspired something in him, because he then narrowed in on the States:
I’m totally off the States now. The reaction to 9/11 and then George Bush – really, they’ve got very blobby as a nation.
Now they [the Americans] are whiny victims whose language is entirely taken from two TV shows – Friends and Sex And The City – and there’s nothing sexy about them any more. And that kind of semi-blindness about the rest of the world, which was attractive when America was exciting, is really unattractive now.
Gross! Talk about “semi-blindness!” With whom has Everett been associating, ill-educated teenage twinks? Sure, there are some American who fit that description, but surely not every single citizen! There are, after all, millions of us. There’s only one Rupert Everett, though. And he sounds like a jerk.
