Dear Entertainment Industry…

You seem to be under the impression that we, the regular people with regular jobs and regular lives, care an awful lot about what you think.

We really don’t. We’re not stupid enough to believe that fame imbues some special insight or wisdom that we regular people are incapable of grasping.

Now don’t get me wrong. We like what you do. We know it’s not easy and we appreciate a job well done. We like to be entertained. We also know that you’re entitled to your opinions, as are we all.

But we don’t take kindly to hypocrisy or elitism. We’re not your followers, we’re your audience. If we follow your posts on twitter (or whatever the cool kids are using these days, I can’t keep up) it’s because we want to learn about your new projects because we like your work. It’s not because we believe you have some special grasp on social issues.

Enjoy your success. But as the Romans so artfully put it, “Memento mori.”
