‘Royal satirist’ Gary Janetti has been cleaning up his offensive Instagram

Embed from Getty Images

Some people sent me this tip yesterday and it was honestly the first time I’ve heard all of this. No, I’ll be honest – I’m pretty sure I’ve seen “Gary Janetti” pop up in comments and Twitter threads before, but the name didn’t mean anything to me and I tend to ignore a lot of this kind of stuff? Like, there are only so many misogynistic and/or racist royal-adjacent people I can really remember. They all start to blur together. Last night I read Pajiba’s excellent and thoughtful piece about Janetti and this controversy, and now I understand why it’s a thing and why people asked me to cover it.

Gary Janetti is actually an American writer/producer who worked on Family Guy. In January, HBO Max greenlighted an animated show pitched by Janetti, based off of the “character” he had been workshopping on Instagram. The character was… Prince George of Cambridge saying insulting, sexist and nasty sh-t about his relatives constantly. Janetti plans to voice Prince George, and he’s gotten lots of actors to voice the rest of the royal family (from Deadline): Orlando Bloom, Condola Rashad, Lucy Punch, Tom Hollander, Alan Cumming, Frances De La Tour and Iwan Rheon.

Since he got the show in January and since people have presumably been working on this sh-t all year, why is Janetti back in the news? Because royal/Janetti watchers have been keeping track of his Instagram, the same IG account where he used Prince George as a vessel to say insulting and offensive sh-t, mostly about the Duchess of Sussex, mostly under the thin veil of “satire.” It turns out that Janetti has been trying to do some housecleaning on his “popular” Instagram and he’s deleted some of the most offensive “jokes” about Meghan. He also posted a “blackout” IG for Black Lives Matter, like he hadn’t gotten a show based off how “funny” it would be to satirize a child’s imagined thoughts about his African-American aunt.

Kayleigh Donaldson at Pajiba has been keeping track of Janetti’s Instagram moves and you can see what he hasn’t deleted here at his IG.

    He is such an unfunny jerk. What I find rather depressing is how many a-b-c-d-celebrities have been following his insta leaving comments that, I bet, they’ve deleted now as well. How this pile of shit was greenlighted is a beyond me, it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    • Diplomanatee says:

      Wanna know something? A lot of royal relatives were liking his posts. Won’t say names but some you would recognize.

    • MA says:

      Call out the royal relatives and aristos.

      I don’t judge celebs who follow him as the industry is small and they have preexisting relationships. Mindy Kaling follows him but has never liked a post, also Patrick Adams. Celebrities who have liked the hateful and cruel posts include Jessica Alba (before Meghan have her charity a huge international boost, not sure since then), Sophie Turner (this one was so disappointing… also her SIL is Meghan’s friends uh), Sarah Michelle Geller, Jordana Brewster, Busy Phillips, trashy RH like Bethenny frankel, that Luann woman who calls herself a countess, Jill Kargman, Lisa Rinna, Chrissy Teigen. Olivia Palermo’s husband (Olivia was friends with Meghan), Jason Wu, Pete Som, and the Oscar de la renta designers (who Meghan has worn), The crazy rich asians author, Tina Craig, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Lea Michele, January Jones, kaley Cuoco, Katie couric, Kelly ripa, Katharine McPhee

      • Desert Lizard says:

        Katharine McPhee? Wow. She and Meghan were childhood friends and now, Katharine’s hubby, David Foster, is allegedly a father figure to Harry. If Katharine liked a post slamming Meghan, that says a lot to me about Kath.

  2. Mellie says:

    To be fair, he made fun of all the royals on there, including Will and Kate, except the kids…
    I don’t know if people in the comments made fun of the kids (probably, because you know, people), but he didn’t, I don’t think so anyway, of course I could have missed a post as I didn’t read ALL of them. He always made it seem as if the kids were superior and smarter than the adults actually, including Archie.

    One of my friends told me about this page awhile back and I was bored and scrolled through it one day and started following it.

    Agree that this guy is probably not nice…and a racist…but Meghan wasn’t the only victim of his meanness…

    • Sam says:

      Imagine being proud to announce you follow his Instagram.You should be ashamed of yourself.I scrolled through his page and 95% are about Meghan and the Meghan posts are the most demeaning and offensive.Calling her a slut,which he has since deleted,cheap,gold-digger etc.Even pedaling the conspiracy theory that she wasn’t pregnant and calling Archie a pillow,mocking when she admitted she wasn’t all right,mocking her weight after Archie,I could go on Mellie.
      Those are the posts that you and your friend see and like because you are “bored” but imagine if someone said this about you,would it be so funny? mellie

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ Sam

        Ditto. That man is a text book bully and racist. As you said, the vast majority of his posts were very derogatory commentary about Meghan, using a white male child. Fucking disgusting stuff.

        The relentless barrage of abuse (for profit) that she’s got for absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER, has been very difficult to stomach.

        I can see people making noises about starting a petition for HBO to drop this guy and his poisonous, exploitative material ASAP. I will sign on with gusto and hopefully most sensible, humane posters on this site will too.

      • manda says:

        I know! I looked at his stuff once and saw nothing but mean stuff. I don’t even get how it’s funny. That it’s supposed to be coming from a child?

      • Stacy Dresden says:

        It saddens me that people make and laugh at jokes like this. Crude and dishonorable.

    • hindulovegod says:

      He absolutely attacked Charlotte, specifically her weight. He’s a misogynist and yes, he included a young girl in his vile hatred of women.

      • Molly says:

        His “jokes” are pretending George is Stewie from Family Guy. That’s it. And it’s not impressive or creative.

        Though when Will and Kate pulled the budget plane stunt, the George character did point out what was happening.

        But a lot of the humor is racist and misogynistic. Fatshaming Charlotte is awful. Stunningly awful.

      • Mary says:

        @hindu, he has also implied, in several posts, that George is gay.

      • Nana says:

        Thank you @hindulovegod, was just going to reply the same thing – of course he attacked the kids, of course he enabled commenters to do the same. Click on the Pajiba link in the story and the screenshots are there. The article also involves a great discussion about satire and whether or not his posts qualified as satire (spoiler: they don’t).

    • Sofia says:

      He made fun of all the royals but he was borderline cruel to Meghan. He rarely slut shamed Kate to the level he did with Meghan. He also fatshamed Charlotte, a kid.

      If he had kept to making fun of all the royals, he probably would have never gotten his book deal or his HBO show. He got it due to being cruel and mean to Meghan.

      And the fact that he hasn’t posted anything since posting about blackouttuesday (and comments were shut off) and add the fact he’s deleting posts, tells me he knows he’s fucked up

    • Lila says:

      Mellie, so you admit that this guy is a jerk and a racist, but that’s okay, because he also makes fun of Charlotte (calling her fat) when he’s not saying Meghan is trash, a slut, faking her pregnancy and all of that?

    • S808 says:

      His following grew the most when he zeroed in Meghan. If his “jokes” were made equally of ALL the royals he wouldn’t be laying low now and slowly scrubbing his ig of his worst “jokes” about her. He posted that stupid black square for black out Tuesday with the comments turned off because he KNEW he’s a hypocrite after building the career off of his abuse of a black woman. His stupid show needs to be cancelled and you and everyone else should be ashamed for following him.

    • Jenn says:

      To be honest he started abusing Meghan and then when he was accused of racism, he started adding other royals. All the vitriol, the sexism, racism and masogyny he reserves for Meghan.
      And he does not spare the kids. The has attacked Prince Oscar of Sweden whose under 4. He has attacked Princess Charlotte and he has attacked Archie numerous times.

    • Becks1 says:

      He did make fun of all the royals, but his treatment of Meghan was especially cruel, and that’s what got him so many followers.

      I followed him for a while (I stopped a year or two ago) and I remember one time specifically he posted something making fun of Kate and the comments were along the lines of “Not funny, leave her alone” and “that’s over the line, only Meghan should be made fun of.”

      His treatment of Meghan was on a different level than his treatment of the others and I think he is directly responsible for so much of the online hate towards Meghan. He pushed theories about it being a “moon bump” etc.

      • manda says:

        It blows my mind that Kate has fans. She is the personification of banal!

      • Jen says:

        I also take issue with his focus on George’s sexuality. George is six. To make constant remarks about him being gay is just gross to me – not in a homophobic way, but just in a let kids be kids way.

    • taylor says:

      Tbh, you and your friend likely enjoyed and saw no offense in his posts because you have a latent disregard for/dislike of Meghan. If you care to, you may want to explore why that is.

    • Anna says:

      He made fun of the kids too, Charlotte for sure. I followed him for a couple of months maybe two years ago (or three? I think before the Sussex wedding), when some of his funnier snark got featured on wider sites. But I had to unfollow soon after because most of the posts were so nasty and meanspirited (mostly about Kate, actually), it left a bad taste in my mouth.

      • SomeChick says:

        Always easier to pick on girls. Picking on children is even more of a punch down.

        Pathetic attempt to copy “Suri’s Burn Book” which TBH also felt uncomfortable, but at least it was actually funny, and not punching down. Once Tom stopped being able to dress her in tiny heels and evening wear, it died down a lot.

      • Love says:

        He was defo. mean to ?Kate, but I wouldn’t say his intense vitriol was aimed at her. Meg was definitely his target… I’d say 80% of his posts…

    • It’s weird how various people saw all the misogynoir and xenophobic abuse that Meghan (and Harry by extension) received and they

      1. Didn’t speak up and/or
      2. Piled on

      Gary and Elizabeth Holmes are both guilty of this. They are trying to change the narrative because they know it’s messy AF to pose as BLM supporters while monetising misogynoir with various media projects.
      Their silence and decision to encourage nasty commenters’ racism is why people are holding them to account.

      The answer to their gross behavior isn’t well they attack the others too. People with integrity know the deal.

  3. S808 says:

    Sad attempt at Siri’s Burn Book.

  4. Ruby_Woo says:

    I’m surprised that they green-lit a cartoon about a real child (I know it’s a caricature but it can be seen as too close for the bone).

    But why is he scrubbing though? The internet is forever and his instagramme was massively popular so there’ll always be receipts. If you’re going to bother posting a black square for BLM, you might as well stand up and own what you said regardless of whether you think it’s racist or not.

    Hiding away and trying to delete things posted by YOU is exactly what anti-racism campaigners have been arguing against – the sheer passivity, gaslighting and taking no accountability.

    I know Elizabeth Holmes had some really nasty comments left by others about Meghan on her post. Was it the same for Gary? Because in that case, he knew what he was doing.

  5. Gina says:

    He’s actually the rudest about Camilla and Beatrice. The stuff about Meghan is tame in comparison.

    • Bailey says:

      Some of the ones he made about Meghan (and Archie) are very sinister….talking about wanting Archie gone. Deleting Meghan’s picture from the wedding photo of the kids with H&M and saying that it’s George’s favorite picture of his Uncle. And the one where he uses both Blue Ivy and George’s photo speaks to taking someone out/down and saying I hope you don’t like Suits.

    • Jenn says:

      No, you are not going to re write history. He was not “rudest” to Camilla and Beatrice. You will not minimise Meghan’s abuse for white women’s sympathy.

      • Gina says:

        @Jenn Excuse me?? Please don’t put that intent on me. I was simply pointing out that all of the posts about Camilla and Beatrice brutally make fun of their looks. They are quite nasty in comparison to his other posts.

      • Jenn says:

        No, I said what I said. Let’s be honest. You are centering white women. That account was and is dedicated to the humiliation of Meghan. It is offensive in this era of #BlackLivesMatter to dismiss her.

      • Nic919 says:

        95% of the posts were calling Meghan a gold digger and accusing her of faking her pregnancy. It is a lie to pretend he didn’t target Meghan over everyone else.

    • Becks1 says:

      He implies in one of his posts that he was behind the anthrax scare for Harry and Meghan.

      That’s worse than comparing Camilla to a horse, sorry.

      • Love says:

        Anthrax post was gross… He had a sick obsession with Meg’s hair, her knees, her weight… and he was obsessed with her dressing, implying it was awful.

        Whilst I don’t want to minimise Camilla’s torture at his hands, the true “target” of his “satire” was Meg. I almost think went after the others to take attention from his gross obsession

    • Sofia says:

      He called Meghan cheap, a slut and said she had a pillow stomach. But sure Camilla being called a horse is much worse

    • Nic919 says:

      He implied that Camilla Looked like a horse but was always calling Meghan a gold digging slut. One insult is way worse and he was focusing on Meghan way way more than the others. Let’s not miminize his attacks on Meghan to a pale attempt to say he did it to everyone. The facts show he targeted Meghan and threw in a few misogynist attacks on others so that people could pretend there wasn’t a huge racist element to his alleged satire. Trying to say it is equivalent is rewriting the facts.

    • MJM says:

      No Gina they are not. They are horrible and relentless. Meghan is his primary target.

  6. Ginger says:

    This isn’t satire, this is just mean and racist behavior. I hate how these people say it’s entertainment and satire when it isn’t. If his posts were just “satire” then why is he deleting them? I’m glad he is getting dragged for this. His time was coming. His post were not funny. At all.

    If you want actual satire, watch a Mel Brooks movie.

    • Molly says:

      He is VILE. He gets a pass because he’s a Sassy Gay, but the things he says, regardless of dragging a little into it, are disgusting. Kayleigh is absolutely correct. Sir, you are a 54 year old man. Shame on all the celebs who encourage him.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        A lot of of times men like him are enabled both by liberal straight men and adoring or supportive liberal women assuring him them that women of color crititicizing him are overreacting, that he’s in the right, and that he’s just being funny or dropping truth bombs. That fuels their belief that their oppression comes first, and what the woc criticizing them are talking about are just debates/disagreements that, as Jessica Mulroney put it, only matter if expressed “kindly”. So it’s good that he’s being called out. And at the same time, there has to be a reminder that he’d still be just as deserving of this call-out if the woc he’d targeted was less innocent or popular than Meghan Markle. Men like him shouldn’t have to choose perfect victims in order for their misogynoir to be addressed like it’s a serious matter.

  7. ziaaa says:

    I have never heard of this man and came across long threads on his racist, misogynistic, exploitative-of-children posts through the Pajiba article like Charlotte accused of having an eating disorder because she is too fat for her age, George being called gay because he played and chatted with another boy his age throughout Harry and Meghan’s wedding, newborn Archie’s doctored pictured with a dark-brown hand-print.

    Even if the royalists ignore all the $hit Janetti has spewed about Meghan since her engagement to Harry, they need to take account of the fact that this man is quite creepily problematic and shouldn’t be allowed to exploit children.

  8. Aurora says:

    His bread was buttered with his cruel Meghan posts. Megxiters regularly flocked to his posts. The comments are a cesspool of Meghan hate in which Gary himself engaged and encouraged.

    • taylor says:

      The comments were repulsive. It’s not satire if your audience takes your jokes seriously.

  9. Loretta says:

    Gary Janetti is disguisting and I side eye famous people like January Jones and Sophie Turner who follow him and also liked his awful posts.

    • molly says:

      Oooh, not Sophie Turner! Dang. I really liked her.

    • Pix says:

      I seem to recall Katie Couric “liked” quite a bit of his post. Made me side-eye her because of her Denzel remarks.

      • kathy williams says:

        Soledad O’Brien follows him too.

      • Sara says:

        Ugh, Katie Couric. She was awful on air. Always sounded snide and smug. One that sticks with me from years ago was her asking the dancer cast of Movin’ Out, “Don’t any of you eat anything? You’re sssso sssskinnyyyyyy.” Top notch journalism right there.

  10. Penguin says:

    I called him out on his racism a couple years ago when he started going full throttle on Megan and when I followed his page. He said i was “taking it too seriously” and “that it’s Instagram there’s other things to worry about” then continued to block me after I mentioned he’s also a minority being a gay man and we should be more considerate

    • Otaku fairy says:

      I’m sorry about that, Penguin. That right there tells you so much about who he is as a person. For one thing, it’s disgusting that he feels that as long as other people are being treated worse, his own misogyny and racism shouldn’t be criticized. You were absolutely right to point out that as a gay man, he should give a fuck about not participating in misogynoir. His blocking you for calling all that out just shows what an abusive, entitled asshole he really is. This is a very real problem among marginalized men- the entitlement some of them feel to behave like this without criticism, the attitude of, “Don’t you dare expect me to take that just as seriously, little bitch.” As a gay white man, this guy benefits both from white privilege, and from how much the left cares when the young people getting hurt, damaged, and killed by traditional values can also be boys. How much the left doesn’t want to tone-police them, wants to assure them that what they see happening to other boys like them isn’t their fault, and that it’s time for change. And what does he choose to do with all that? Uses his platform to call a woc a sl*t, and silence women who criticize him for it.

    • Suz says:

      That is such a Chad remark. “Relaaaax. It’s just a joke.”

  11. Rae says:

    For anyone who is trying to defend him…he wouldn’t be scrubbing old posts if he had nothing to hide.

  12. Girl_ninja says:

    I called him out in his bullshit and he blocked me on Instagram.

    Let’s not forget the actresses like Sarah Michelle Gellar who egged that loser racist on.

    • The Other Sofia says:

      SMG liked and commented on so many of his posts. The Mean Girl is strong in that one.

  13. Sam says:

    I’ve realized the power of white male privilege with people with like Janetti. We may expect him to be sympathetic to others because he’s gay, but he still walks through like with white male privilege and a pass to profit off of racism and misogyny.

    • L4frimaire says:

      This. He may be gay but he is still a white male with a lot of privilege, and his calling card right now was denigrating a woman of color for daring to exist in a white space he thinks she has no right to be in. We’ve read the same kind of language whenever Black women are in spaces that people don’t think they don’t belong in, whether it be the White House, Senate, certain jobs or elite universities. They say they scammed their way in, are only there to profit off it, don’t care about the organization, are not good enough to be there and have an angle. Also, the constant slut shaming and use of the word cheap and vulgar, undermining and questioning her pregnancy and motherhood. How black women are constantly sexualized and commoditized has a very real very ugly history in this country, and it is deliberate. Janetti is just another person making money off Meghan by attacking and belittling her. To him and his fans, she doesn’t deserve dignity or respect because they think she stole the biggest prize, a real prince. This makes me so disgusted.

    • Heather says:

      My cousin is gay…but he’s a 59 year old white male, first and foremost. He is toxic, racist and misogynistic. Any time he gets called out on this, he calls people homophobic. It’s very frustrating because our family and friends have been nothing but supportive of him and everyone in the LGBTQ community.
      He even made fun of our trans (two-spirit) Ojibway niece, asking if we should refer to her as a “squ@w” now. {sickening}
      Gary Janetti does NOT get a pass for being racist because he’s gay.

  14. manda says:

    You know who probably has screen grabs of his awful stuff on her insta? Unless she deleted them? Emily Giffin. She posted a lot of this guy’s “jokes” which is how I first heard of him.

    • manda says:

      I was also going to say, but waited too long to edit–

      Emily giffin’s reposts of the janettie stuff is actually what made me discover how crazy venomous she was towards meghan.

      I just don’t get his stuff, it’s not funny at all. I feel like it also needs explaining, like it took me a while to understand why prince george was included in some of the shots. Had no IDEA it was supposed to be him speaking.

  15. Becks1 says:

    I cant believe people are defending him by saying “he made fun of all the royals.” He was laser focused on Meghan. The others were just there to make sure people could say exactly that – that he made fun of all the royals. He fatshamed Charlotte, Kate, AND Meghan, and he made fun of Camilla’s looks……but his treatment of Meghan was on a different level. He actively encouraged the hate against her in his comments.

    Kayleigh’s article at Pajiba was really good and I think really explains why he is so problematic. And not funny.

    • Sofia says:

      Yup. If you hate Meghan, fine, continue to ignore misogynistic and vile comments.

      But he fatshames a 5 year old. At least don’t ignore that.

    • Nic919 says:

      The Karens trying to centre the white royals are pretty unbelievable. Janetti focused his insults on Meghan, which attracted the haters and tossed in a few misogynist posts about the others, but even a casual observer could see it was clearly targeting Meghan. Trying to erase the racism and misogynoir against Meghan in Janetti’s work is an attempt to minimize his garbage work.

      I’m really surprised they haven’t shut down the show because using George, who is a child, as a character has got to cross some lines. George is a minor and not really a public figure in the same way as the adult royals.

      • bonobochick says:

        Nic, it is like the people who try to minimize the racism + misogyny towards Meghan by saying Kate had it bad too or “both duchesses”-ing acts of malevolence towards Meghan. It is gross and obvious.

  16. TeamAwesome says:

    I followed him for a hot minute because I kept seeing him referenced by others. George as a bitchy queen is the general vibe, but yes it could get absolutely hateful about all of the female royals.

  17. Annie says:

    He also makes fat shaming jokes about Charlotte, a 4 year old child. I really hate this brand of white gay man who is misogynistic, racist and classist. These guys are abundant in LA and they’re incredibly toxic people. The type who refused to join a BLM march but were congregating at restaurants at the same time. Or the type who wouldn’t join Trans BLM in Brooklyn but were sun tanning in a thong in Central Park. These guys are Karens in disguise. Racism by white gays is real. The gay community has a racism problem.

    I’ve had Twitter for over ten years. Back then Gary would post the most racist jokes. Not as bad as Megan Amran but definitely a little out there. Stuff like “awww you’re Harry Potter for Halloween? But he’s not Mexican”. I’m all for dark humor but can we stop with racism and sexism? It literally ruins lives. It’s not funny. He briefly tried to make Blue Ivy Prince George’s sidekick (to pretend he wasn’t being racist towards Meghan) but that didn’t last because not even he bought it I guess. The comments on his Instagram are disgusting and racist. He does nothing about it.

  18. Cee says:

    I always wondered why the Cambridges, or the Monarchy in general, never threatened to sue Janetti over the use of George’s image for the sole purpose of bullying, diminishing and the shaming of Meghan, Kate, Beatrice, Camilla, Charlotte and, even on occasion, The Queen herself.

    They threaten to sue over any little inconvenience so I’ve somehow believed they were somewhat OK with his attacking Meghan so consistently and relentlessly.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    So this cretin is covering his tracks? NOTHING goes away on the internet. Screengrabs will eventually surface.

  20. Grant says:

    He is AWFUL. His husband is Brad (can’t remember last name), Rachel Zoe’s old assistant. In the beginning of lockdown, Brad did this bit on his Instagram called “Bradbucks” where he pretends he is a barrista serving Janetti. The joke was supposed to be how meticulous Janetti was about how he wanted his coffee. It was supposed to be humorous but all I saw was another Karen who probably yells at barristas for putting one too many ice cubes in his coffee. Like, people are dying from COVID and you’re having anxiety over whether or not your coffee was sufficiently stirred to your satisfaction?! You’re not funny, you’re just an @$$hole.

  21. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I followed him for a hot second when it was just general royal satire about the George making fun of his family. But when Meghan came on the scene it took a really nasty dog-whistle turn and that really pissed me off. He’s like a lot of why gay men who think it’s okay to be racist and misogynist because they’re part of a marginalized group.

  22. Watson says:

    I too followed him for a bit. He just seemed like a catty gay man. They type id be friends with in real life TBH. Then things got really mean, his followers seemed extremely racist with comments unchecked and i unfollowed him. The more racist he got the more his followers increased. I had to check out of that for my own sanity.

  23. ClaireB says:

    Why does anyone think it’s okay to say anything like this?

  24. Lowrider says:

    This man was awarded a book deal and tv show for being a misogynistic , sexist, racist troll.

    • Nana says:

      So true.
      I just want this period in our history to pass quickly – where we reward this kind of vacuousness…. the narcissism and Kardashian/selfie era in general really.

  25. Vanessa says:

    Malcom X said it Best the most disrespected woman is the black woman everyone is quickly to said but what about the other royal woman he called names . People need to realize that just because someone is gay that doesn’t mean they can’t be racist at the end of the day he is white male with money and shame on anyone who thinks his brand of funny is ok he mean spirited racist bully who attack Meghan and her child relentlessly for years under the gist of humor . If he made a post of calling kate a whore or gold digger he would have lambasted by the royal reporters because kate is a perfect woman who is pure but the black woman is labeled a slut and gold digger .

  26. Anne Marie says:

    There is nothing funny about his pedophilia like obsession with George or his RACIST behaviour. The loser probably got a call from HBO after they were being tagged by squad members+ linking it to the BLM tag
    Does he think people dont have screenshots??? His career is about to be over and all those problematic people following him and liking his posts will have to answer questions soon! You have to be sick to not realise how his sick posts are encouraging the hateful comments under his posts. He even had one that practically gave voice to conspiracy theories calling Meghan’s baby bump a pillow😡

  27. Alyse says:

    I believe he’s the one who runs the insta “Comments By Celebs” and is bffs with / the reason why the Foster sisters & Lisa Rinna are so heavily featured

  28. ennie says:

    HBO just pulled a news/comedy show in my country area HBO Latinoamerica because the comediant was on twitter criticizing the son of the current president months ago, but his tweets were dug up but the president’s followers and they fired hm. HE is a heavy critic of the president, and all that, but how can he lose a comedy show and another person featuring a young kid and bullying is ok?
    My husband really wants his HBO, but they are unfair

  29. Elizabeth says:

    Alyse, Emma Diamond and Julie Kramer run Comments by Celebs. He must know celebrities through his work or something.

    Why is the side-by side of Meghan in the red dresses slut shaming? It seems like he didn’t add a caption.

    Gary Janetti isn’t the only one who has written nasty things under the guise of humour. Lainey’s blog was full of gross racist, homophobic and sexist commentary and believe me, it was not the norm to speak or write this way 10 years ago. She clearly held those views and so did her audience. And speaking of this blog, recognize these comments, Celebitchy?

    This was your headline & commentary on June 2, 2006:

    Easy nickname for Shiloh Pitt: Pile ‘O Shit
    “Thanks to the PopBitch e-mail newsletter for pointing this out. An easy nickname for Shiloh Pitt is Pile ‘O Shit!
    The poor girl is named after the place she was conceived and has a name that’s not only weird, but quite easily mocked.”

    That’s a pretty nasty thing to write about a newborn baby, no?

    Also this about Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen on March 25, 2011:

    Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s menopausal styles at the Met: hideous or typical?
    Part of the reason I liked Olivia Munn’s dress for the premiere of the latest opera at the Met was that I was looking at all of the photos from the event, and Olivia was clearly one of the better-dressed ladies. Case in point: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were also there. I mean… Jesus. They are 23 years old! And they look 50-something. Menopausal styling, menopausal fashion, menopausal faces.”

    Talk about being ageist! And there’s more where that came from but I think you get the idea…

    There’s been a lot of growth on this blog, and Lainey’s as well. But both blogs have had a mean streak not much different from Janetti’s. It would be good if all bloggers admit to this and own their past writing, even as they call out others. Glad to see Lainey did that, but haven’t seen others follow suit, and that’s disappointing as well as hypocritical.

    That guy showed his ass now trying to backtrack. I’m glad someone was keeping tabs, I never liked the way he depicted Meghan.
