Gawker Sez: Tila Tequila is World’s Worst Person

January 7, 2010

Gawker, now you jumpin’ on my hatin’ bandwagon! The media gossip site just printed a SCATHING critique of shameless media whore Tila Tequila (nee Tila Nguyen), who is now using the death of her “fiancee,” drug addled socialite Casey Johnson, to try to stay in the spotlight (read it here). It’s entitled “Tila Tequila: Disgusting Little Girl” and is basically EXACTLY what we would have written. In fact, we were thinking today “should we write about this disgusting Tila person? Nah, everyone’s gonna be all over it and it will be played to death.” But Gawker has paid your WorstPeople bloggers the GREATEST compliment of all. In fact, the thrust of the piece: “Tila Tequila is the world’s worst person.” Oh, snaps, now they steal our lines! Actually, it’s OK, Gawker, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and we all flattered and shit!

The analysis of why we should not care about or pay attention to Tequila is spot on and in-depth.  A great excerpt:

Casually tossing words like “worst” around is one of the unfortunate clichés of the current talky-head, bloggy media culture. But Tila Tequila, through her desperate attempts to latch onto and enable an heiress who was dealing with some serious addiction and psychological problems, has done enough for her to secure legitimate claim to the title in some category. Internet creation? Famewhore? Person in the World?

I don’t know if we need to spend much time further investigating this story. Though, one thing interesting to ponder: why is Tila like this? First, she saw the opportunity to make a “career” from doing nothing in our new reality/entertainment/famous for being famous media world. Also, her background says a lot. Child of immigrants who didn’t assimilate in to U.S. culture. From a poor background. Short of stature. Adolescence spent going off the rails on sex and substances. Lack of formal education. An Asian in a “modeling” world where 5-foot-tall FOBs are not exactly a hot commodity. What does this all say? LOW SELF-ESTEEM. Of course, someone with zero self-esteem like Tila is going to seek as much negative attention as possible. Classic psychology.

Anyway, being a basket case whack-job doesn’t absolve her. I think all the votes are in. Tila Tequila, the talentless trainwreck who helped to wreck the life of a tragic person, is officially the WORST PERSON in the WORLD.

It’s Official: Chinese Declared ‘Worst People in the World’

December 19, 2009

Have you been following the news of the follies in Copenhagen? Seems the whole thing is a clusterfuck. Anytime the U.S. and other developed nations want to do anything, the third-worlders from China, et al do some diplomatic cock-blocking. The Chinese premier Wen Jiabao even stood Obama up at some things, the Chinese have been boycotting meetings and sending underlings to attend. It’s all a huge mess.

Of course, our uncouth barbarian friends from China have only done their best to make things WORSE:

Channeled by Gawker (from like every news source):

“The Christian Science Monitor‘s Linda Feldmann sets the scene in her pool report:

Pool spray pre-bilateral between Obama and Wen is a mess

The Chinese press corps shoved their way into the small room where POTUS and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao were about to meet, preventing most of the American press pool from entering.

Robert Gibbs said something to the effect of “my people” (meaning American press corps) have to get into the room, “or we’re leaving.” A few American media were able to get in, but your pooler and other non-broadcast reporters could not get in.

This photo of Wen’s goons muscling our first amendment heroes is positively chilling. Still, we have to admire Robert Gibb’s courage, here, standing up for the rights of people he is paid to lie to constantly.

According to Helene Cooper of the New York Times, who managed to actually make it into the meeting for the photo spray and file to the pool: “White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs and NSC chief of staff Denis McDonough both got roughed up a bit trying to get into the room.”

So, there you have it. We always knew the average mainland Chinese peasant had no idea about proper human behavior in public. And, we really don’t mind all that much as they usually keep their behavior in their swamp-hole home country. On rare occasions we are subjected to their neanderthal-like behavior in our local Chinatown or tourist areas popular with the Chinese hordes. HOWEVER, this was a UN MEETING on the highest reaches of the international world stage. These are meetings attended by presidents and other heads of state. A retarded person would know that you send your best-behaved professionals — those with lots of knowledge and experience with protocol and diplomatic settings — to attend, work at, cover, etc. this kind of high-level event.

Perhaps these WERE China’s top, sophisticated media and diplomatic professionals? Maybe they are still such a third-world, undeveloped country that is this the BEST THEY HAVE. We should assume that since China’s leaders probably are at least at the level of a retarded person, that in fact, this is the best representation their country has to offer.

So, since the Chinese would only send their best people to such an important event, we can conclude that their best people are actually the WORST PEOPLE. In a setting like this at Copenhagen, they push and shove, give no respect to heads of state and cause violence and chaos. No other country at the conference was doing this. So we can then conclude that even China’s best are the WORST. According to the media reports and their behavior at this UN conference, Chinese are the WORST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

Chinese boss is one of the worst people

December 5, 2009

Andrew Tong is PISSED OFF (and pissed on)

Gawker, one of our favorite blogs, has a fantastic story about a really sick dude, possibly one of the worst dudes out there (read it here). Seems this guy, Ping Jiang (I’m not making that up, it’s a real name), abused the shit out of this DUDE who worked for him, Andrew Tong. Jiang forced Tong “to perform oral sex (in once case as a condition of being allowed to trade); made to take female hormones and dress in feminine attire; and violated in various other ways:

“As part of his “training program, Mr. Jiang set about to systematically bully and control Mr. Tong through obscene sexual ultimatums and physical brutality. By way of example, the following tortious and criminal acts were perpetrated by Mr. Jiang against Mr. Tong at SAC’s very own offices: (a) in or about the beginning of February 2006, Mr. Jiang forced Mr. Tong to perform oral sodomy; (b) in or about the beginning of March 2006, Mr. Jiang committed assault and battery, as well as false imprisonment upon Mr. Tong by restraining him with ropes and forcibly introducing certain foreign objects into Mr. Tong’s rectum; and (c) in or about mid-March 2006, Mr. Jiang again restrained Mr. Tong with ropes and forcibly urinated into his mouth.”

Totally nuts! It may also be interesting that these two and also the corporate counsel involved are all Chinese. Does it have any bearing here? I worked in Asia before and had a boss who was for sure one of the WORST PEOPLE. He was abusive (not in the “pee in your mouth” way, more just verbally) and also Asian. Is this a trend? As Americans, is this a sign of what’s to come with the rise of China? Will we all be working for sick, abusive masters who urinate in our mouths? In my case, I would rather opt for unemployment, but a couple of my pals in Chelsea may be interested in a position with such benefits! — rimshot!

Anyway, seems for sure that though Gawker simply calls this guy “the world’s most heinous (rhymes with anus, children!) boss,” he is also certainly one of the WORST PEOPLE.

The cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ are the worst people

December 4, 2009

"We're disgusting and oh, so proud of it!"

If you have seen the massive publicity, watched the clips, read the blogs or even (God help you) watched the show, you know that it is INDISPUTABLE that the cast of MTV’s new reality show “Jersey Shore” are the WORST PEOPLE. Are they the worst people in the world? I don’t know. They are possibly the WORST PEOPLE in the tri-state area (only one of them is from New Jersey). The premise of the show: a group of male and female “Italian-Americans” shack up in a beach house at the beach in New Jersey for the summer. These people are known as and call themselves “guidos.” Basically it means Italian-American white trash. This show – and the cast – have generated quite a shocking amount of hate and discourse online. I don’t know what the fuss is about, as: 1. We know that by nature, famewhores on reality shows are often really horrid people; 2. We know that white trash are often really bad people, and: 3. Put a WHOLE group of disgusting people together and you achieve WORST PEOPLE critical mass.

Read more about this show and watch clips at Jezebel . Also, great socio-/anthropological analysis here at Gawker. Be prepared for some nastiness. Some great quote from the show (thanks, Jezebel for pulling these):

‘”Go upstairs with your whores and have fun.” = Funny

“I will cut your hair while you’re sleeping.” = Funny

“If a girl’s a slut, she should be abused.” = Unforgivably sickening. Like this show, really.”

For now, the consensus seems to be that the cast of “Jersey Shore” are the WORST PEOPLE.

People who call everything ‘racism’ are the worst people

December 2, 2009

So MTV is starting up this new show called “Jersey Shore.” As with any reality show, the idea is to “document” a group or some lives and portray them in such a light that you a. Laugh at them and b. Feel superior. “Jersey Shore” focuses on a group of Italian American young people, often referred to as “guidos.” For those unfamiliar, guidos are a type of Italian white trash: envision an unintellectual people who spend too much time at the gym, dress poorly (and flashily), wear too much cologne, are overly concerned with their appearances, work in blue collar trades such as “contracting” and “law enforcement,” have unevolved cultural and racial views, etc.

So there’s this Italian-American advocacy group and they lodge complaints with MTV about this show, calling it “racist” (read here at Gawker ). The problems with that assertion are: 1. Being Italian or Italian-American is not the same as being the member of a racial group (what race? white?!), so you would think this advocacy group should buy a dictionary; 2. The claim is that the show is racist, the show features a group of people, so if anyone is being “racist” it would have to be that group of people. Do you follow here? There is no script, there is camera equipment, there is a TV network. They are not to blame. MTV didn’t point a gun at the folks portrayed and said “act racist, be a stereotype.” Reality TV is not slavery, they chose to participate. 3. The “cast” of the show has commented on this and see nothing wrong with what they portray. The “reality” is if a group of people are captured on tape acting in a “stereotypical” manner that the rest of us find amusing, this is not racist. It is no more racist than the rednecks who are always shown on “Cops” outside their house, drunk with no shirt on after smacking around their wives. Yes, it’s a “stereotype” and we are all predisposed to think “this is what rednecks do” and guess what, here is a TV show with a redneck doing EXACTLY what we believe they do. Don’t call it RACIST when someone acts the way we think they do.

In short, this is NOTHING CLOSE to racism. This “advocacy” group and all others should work on a different “problem.” Here’s one: how to get members of our ethnic group to behave themselves and not embarrass us when they are on reality TV shows? Because that’s the real issue, isn’t it? The group, UNICO, is embarrassed by the behavior of people they are lumped together with. This reminds me of the behavior of some of the Jewish “benevolent” groups run by German “establishment” Jews in New York in the late 1800s-early 1900s. The well-connected and assimilated Germans were ashamed and embarrassed by the plight and presence of the newer arrivals: the poorer slavic and eastern European Jews who were flooding the tenements. So groups were started by the ladies who lunch to “help” the new, poor Jews. This included sending the children off to the countryside (e.g. the Fresh Air fund, summer camps etc.) to get away from the cauldron of the slums. This also, conveniently, gave the rich Jews a break from seeing the urchins around the city, and reminding their gentile friends that Jews could be poor, unpresentable people. Read about Robert Moses and his background for more about this.

Anyway, self-haters are pretty bad people. But those who call everything racism are the WORST PEOPLE.
