>>735 I don't want him having a breakdown or anything terrible like that either. I don't think all this warrants such a severe reaction. He's dating a manipulative woman who is fine with coded racism and slut shaming when it furthers her agenda. He is putting on a public spectacle with this relationship because it's something he's wants so he can be famous in the mainstream. Too bad the blowback was spectacular.
I do believe his entitlement and privilege blind him to how problematic coded racism is. I think he knows what a mess this is (he looks too stiff and dead eyed for me to believe he doesn't know something is off) but he's too stubborn and egotistical to accept that yet and he'll continue until she kicks him to the curb or he reaches his wits end.
Btw, I don't believe there's a contract. Maybe an NDA of sorts but nothing like what some of the deep in denial fans are thinking. Shit will really hit the fan if the two attend the Emmy's together and make their red carpet debut there. I don't know if that'll happen but his terrible culture of celebrity answer makes me think it's going to happen. Tommy wants to be famous and dammit he's going to the Emmy's where he's been nominated with his very famous singer girlfriend on his arm.
