Your carnivore pet is not “vegan” just because you feed it vegetables
We have a word for that already, it’s called “animal abuse”
I get so freaking angry at people who feed dogs and cats on veggies and always hope that one day these pets will maul their idiotic owners, hide the evidence and go and move in with the nice meat eaters down the road.
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence was told to diet or risk her career in Hollywood, the Hunger Games star has revealed.
Interviewed in Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lawrence said she was labelled “fat” and encouraged to lose weight by producers.
"It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through," said the 23-year-old winner of this year’s Oscar for best actress. "Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.
"They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me."
Lawrence said she had developed a technique for dealing with such issues after Academy recognition for her role in David O Russell comedy drama Silver Linings Playbook and box office glory for last year’s The Hunger Games. “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself,” she said.
Nintendo’s announcement (and YouTube’s acquiescence) is a disaster. It hurts Nintendo, and it hurts the independent creators who through their Let’s Play videos create a unique and valuable experience of a game.
I completely agree. Nintendo is being greedy, stupid, and shortsighted. Nintendo makes money by making great games and systems to play them. YouTube makes money by selling advertising and nurturing an environment where creators can share their creations.
Nintendo is, surprisingly, grabbing a small amount of money (relative to their earnings) and alienating countless customers.
YouTube is, unsurprisingly, being cowardly and not supporting the content creators who have made it worth billions. YouTube is, once again, on the wrong side of an issue with regard to its content creators.
Precisely this - Nintendo are also destroying a valid and popular form of un-looked for advertising, numerous recent, obscure Nintendo games have found their way on to my shelf because of Let’s Play videos and now knowing that Ninty are making a money grab I will not be searching for such things again, or if i do…. Adblock gets turned back on so the creator gets the views, likes and possible sub - but no money for ninty.
