yvonne_taco

I love that stallone is filming it!


TRIKKDADDY

For what film did he win this?


TaRaNRoD

It was an honorary award.


Saazkwat

He deserves it! Jackie Chan is the Chinese version of Steve Irwin


GobLoblawsLawBlog

In what sense?


Reddokkanbruddah

I think they mean like kindness and caring in a pretty egregious industry. Kind of along the lines of Keanu Reeves Edit: but apparently he has done some things I don't exactly agree with.


TuckerMcG

If so that couldn’t be farthest from the truth. He has a child out of wedlock that he refuses to recognize because she was the result of an affair and is a propagandist for the CCP. Edit: u/KillerTuxedo brings up additional points about how distasteful of a human he is in his off-screen life. The man is a brilliant actor and has unparalleled work ethic. But the problem with idolizing people is you’re never open to any criticism of them whatsoever, even if that criticism is wholly warranted and accurate and true. Edit 2: I don’t believe for one second that Jackie Chan - who has been a multi-millionaire A-list Hollywood actor since the 1980s - is **forced** to obey the CCP. He and his entire family could’ve safely defected to the US or Europe and been untouchable by the CCP for the rest of their lives. He hasn’t done that because he doesn’t want to, not because the Chinese government is stopping him from doing it. If that were the case, how come Chow Yun-Fat and his entire family aren’t dead??? Edit 3: [Jackie Chan wants to be part of the CCP. ](https://variety.com/2021/film/news/jackie-chan-join-communist-party-1235019781/) > “Abroad they often say, ‘proud to be Chinese.’ I’m very lucky to be a Chinese person, but I also am very jealous that you all are Party members. I just think the Chinese Communist Party is really so magnificent,” he said, according to video footage from official broadcaster CCTV. “What the Party says, what it promises, it doesn’t need 100 years to accomplish — it will definitely accomplish it in just a few decades. I want to be a Party member!” He’s not afraid of them. Stop it. Edit 3: Jack Ma could’ve left before he “disappeared” too. But he didn’t for the same reason Jackie hasn’t. Money. All of these counterpoints are the same and they’re all easily defeated.


deathbearer

If you were living in china you would too be a propagandist or else your ass would be jailed.


NeonFlame126

Damn, I hope someday he can make enough money to move. Maybe he'll make it to America one of these days


BasicallyAQueer

I think you’re being sarcastic, but even for Chinese people in the US, they can’t really just up and become anti CCP. Sure, they may never plan to go back to China, but they almost always still have family there. Someone as famous as Jacky, I’d bet you a lot of money they hold some nasty leverage over him, and he can’t really do anything about it. All it takes is one off comment and someone he loves has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Now idk if he’s being paid by the government there, or if some other nefarious shit is going on, but my point is that even if he is anti CCP, he really can’t voice it without some kind of repercussion. It’s utterly tragic, but that’s how it is.


the_loneliest_noodle

Plenty of Chinese celebrities just keep their mouth's shut. He actively supports the CCP. China doesn't dissapear you for shutting the fuck up.


MouthJob

It's also a stupid argument anyway. Plenty of rich Chinese just leave China if they have an issue with th government. Chan could get his whole family and everyone he cares about our of there. But he doesn't care to because he genuinely supports it.


Vox___Rationis

Chow Yun Fat lives in Hong Kong and have openly supported the protests there.


Rainyday156

When questioned on being blacklisted in China for supporting HK protests, he said, ["I'll just make less, then."](https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2khdm1/chow_yunfat_reportedly_blacklisted_from_working/) Badass on and off screen.


g0ldcd

Nah - Jackie has stepped up for CCP. Hong Kong doesn't like him too much any more. Doesn't mean I don't love his films though.


MrArtless

oh yeah does that explain why he is known in Hong Kong as their version of Harvey Weinstein? Does the CCP make him be a rapist too?


pikindaguy

Source?


KillerTuxedo

Not to mention being seen on a date with a young girl literally while his wife was giving birth, disowning his son for being caught with marijuana, drunk driving, admitted to hitting his kid, etc. I am a huge fan of Jackie Chan's work, and the dude certainly has the capacity to be a sweet guy, but he's also def not some wholesome fatherly type like Steve Irwin. He can be a pretty colossal dick.


TuckerMcG

Yeah I had forgotten all the rest. Thanks for adding to the list. I didn’t care to look it up.


i_say_potato_

He admitted to throwing his infant child across the room and into a wall! Wrote about it in his autobiography.


Destiny_player6

Well if he doesn't bend to the CCP, he could actually maybe have the chance of him, his family, and his illegitimate daughter would all be axed out.


[deleted]

Not true, Chow Yun-fat stood up for the Hong Kong protests in 2020 and got banned from working in mainland China. It's about money not physical threats.


Taj_Mahole

Easy for you to call him a propagandist from you keyboard. Try being a Chinese National with international fame. Good luck speaking out against the CCP.


g0ldcd

I think you need to be brave to stand up to the CCP - but I think they're also quite happy with silence from you. Especially if you're Jackie Chan (the world's favourite chinese actor).


amanguupta53

Remember Jack Ma?


Lightbrand

Rip dada Ma


WillCommentAndPost

Yeah for as wholesome as people say he is, he is shit to his SO and kids, and supports Chinese propaganda and has damned anyone outside of it many times.


Lu232019

Except he’s secretly a douche bag…. He’s a CCP puppet, serial philanderer and a crap father. I mean he has made a lot of good movies and I won’t say he doesn’t deserve the Oscar but I wouldn’t say he has a reputation for being kind or caring….


fletchdeezle

He has a reputation for playing kind and caring characters when he’s acting lol

uracil

Jackie is a piece of shit. I used to be a huge fan too :(


GruffScottishGuy

He's notorious for sexually abusing the women on his movies too. Jackie was something of a hero to me as a young teen, it was a difficult pill to swallow when I learned of his real character.


uracil

He doesn't. Jackie Chan is a piece of shit human being. I grew up as a huge fan of his but my friend from Hong Kong opened my eyes.


lightspeedx

Nice try Chris Tucker


Rift_N_Space

What kinda of comparison is that.. Jackie Chan is not the Chinese version of anyone.. Jackie Chan is in a class of his own


prollyanalien

He deserves the award for his work, but don’t ever compare a human piece of garbage like Jackie Chan to Steve Irwin. Just take one look at how Chan treats his children and the city that gave him his career, he threw away all morals to ensure the CCP doesn’t interfere with his paychecks.


myth2988

Wait until you hear all the shit he has done to his kids and in favor of kowtow to the CCP


Xynic

No he isn’t. He’s an asshole to his family. He’s also a huge CCP supporter.


Hombre_flaco

Steve Irwin? Wtf? I never saw JChan catch a gator


rawrxs

Jackie Chan actually has a reputation of being a very terrible person in many ways unfortunately.


taws34

Steve Irwin wouldn't disown a child based on who they love. Jackie Chan did. Fuck that guy.


-Badger2-

Dude, read up on Jackie Chan. The guy's a massive piece of shit.


throwthrowandaway16

Not really, Jackie Chan is kinda shitty dude. Very pro China, anti hong Kong etc. Please don't compare to Irwin.


DeidaraJr

Jackie Chan is a huge piece of shit


christo334

they should call it something else. like a lifetime award or something because honorary make it seem like he doesn't deserve it or something.


SatiricalSmellyFarts

At that point we're just arguing semantics. Point is this dude revolutionized comedy action. His film credits are among the most extensive in the industry, and given how physically intensive and frankly dangerous his roles always are, he's one of the most revered in the industry. There isn't a single stunt-person that doesn't idolize Jackie. Anyone arguing anything less would struggle to convince me. I don't care if he gets an Emmy or a lifetime achievement ceremony, as long as he gets recognition for all his hard work.


christo334

pretty much what i mean. its really cool that he got an award and he definitively deserve it. you just know that some people read honorary and think participation or something.


MrInopportune

To be honest, Jackie probably doesn't care if people think that way or not.


sirwillups

Honorary to me says they are honoring him. Seems better than just winning for a single movie.


Cool-Miner

Yeah, he is special for winning it *not* associated with a movie.


[deleted]

[удалено]


BrasaEnviesado

It should be called 'oops, I guess you've deserved all this time' award Kubrick, Chaplin, Hitchcock all deserved oscars for direction, got this 'honorary' award instead


BelleAriel

…and well deserved too.


No_Organization5188

Shrek 5.


SkinnyObelix

There are these small things that make me feel like he's a good dude, I don't know anything about him and if there's bad, please don't tell me. But things like this and the fact that he still has his turtles from the Rocky movie make me feel like he's a nice dude.


Like_a_

Dude. He sold his dog butkus because he was less than broke, just before he pitched the Rocky script. Broke his heart. He then finished the script, sold it, and with the fist paycheck he bought back the dog for like 4x the price. That's his dog butkus that stars in the movie rocky. The man is a superstar.


armylax20

Also turned down offers if they didn't want to cast him in it. That's balls while broke.


ccq10

Oh, then I suggest you don't read the comments in this thread. Edit: I thought you were talking about Jackie Chan


typed-talleane

Hes talking about stalone


HighFiveOhYeah

Everyone has flaws, but he’s generally a good dude.


Elastichedgehog

He's filming it like a proud dad at his kid's performance.


Independent_Pen6566

Sylvester Stallone is like sitting there recording on his phone like the proudest mother


Magister1995

Just want yall to know he somehow supports CCP.


AeroRandy

There is so much for him to lose if he didn't support the CCP. Don't pretend that you wouldn't do the same if you were him.


farnsworthfan

Right? Like, I get it, CCP is terrible, but it's really easy to say that when you have no skin in the game.


TraditionalSir1055

Whatever he does it's his own choice we can't do anything about that, but one thing for sure the amount of his contribution in a world of film industry is really awesome! imagine after 56 years he got his award. What a F**cking Legend !!


xMrSaltyx

If you are going to censor the word, why use it at all? 🤔


DragonboyZG

"What a Fucking Legend !!" See, it isn't that hard. I don't understand why people censor it. either write the whole thing or don't write it at all


radta

Or instead of that, we could just not concern ourselves with something so petty.


NotedStaff

finally the reasonable response


quantinuum

But muh feeling of superiority


redheadmomster666

This is not the Reddit way....


candlecrusher

For some reason the asterisks don't bother me, but sh!t drives me up the wall. Like, it's the same damn word with the 'i' upside down. It's not even censored! It's madness and we should all take a stand against it.


Azhaius

Tbh none of the partially censored cusses are actually at all censored. * Fucking * F*cking * F*****g All effectively the exact same thing. If you're not censoring the *entire* word, you're just typing it with one hand while clutching your pearls at yourself with the other.


ProphePsyed

Let people do what they want man


93sKuLz

Plus I didn’t know “fuucking” had two U’s lol


[deleted]

Chow Yun-Fat supported the Hong Kong protests in 2020 and got banned from working in mainland China. Jackie Chan supports the CCP because he gets to keep his money and prestige.


Deruji

Chow yun-fat is a legend


Alex_Keaton

a F**cking Legend


fezzuk

He was a multimillionaire in America, he chased CCP money. No need to.


calf

Like, no? I'm an Asian American immigrant and I have relatives in China. Chow-Yun Fat is a celebrity who exercised his moral conscience, so why exactly can't Jackie? Excusing the behavior of people who submit to and enable oppression, including Jackie Chan--who was born a citizen of Hong Kong--is not only logically wrong, it washes over and devalues every person who actually expressed dissent. And what's even more ironic is Jackie's own movies are largely about people choosing doing the right thing and standing up against strongmen villains.


dbx99

The CCP still confiscated his house in China (or was it Hong Kong) and some of his assets. Even after Jackie talked all kinds of shit about America being bad because freedom in the hands of people is bad. He really brown nosed the communist party above and beyond.


Mad_Murdock_0311

All the more reason to stay in their good graces. People in America have no idea how good we have it. Sure, there are major issues that we still need to resolve, this country is broken and needs a lot of work, but... If all these people complaining about Jackie lived in China, Afghanistan, Russia (homophobic as fuck), I think they'd shut their mouths. It's easy for us to sit at home, on our $1000 phones and complain about other people and countries. Try living in real strife for most of your life and then tell me how evil Jackie is. People need some real perspective.


greg19735

but jackie can live in America.


Knight_That_Said_Ni

He also basically disowned his daughter I think. I dunno the specifics, but saw somewhere she was homeless cause he disowned her cause she's a lesbian.


malabericus

This story is so twisted. He cheated on his wife and got a daughter. He's never had a relationship with her. The daughter ran away from her mom because her mom didn't agree with her lifestyle. She's now married to her wife. When asked Jackie didn't have a issue with her being a lesbian.


ColgateHour

So he’s not a homophobe he’s just a shitty father.


CubonesDeadMom

He’s a true believer dude. He’s not just doing it to protect himself


chocolatechoux

Ikr. There are so many celebrities in China with tonnes of money to lose and he's still one of the ones that stand out. Like, he has such a reputation for being a sycophant domestically why is it hard to acknowledge that.


SpookyTerrence

I think even more bizarre is Redditors refusal to accept that anyone that’s Chinese supports their government. Let’s ignore the fact that China isn’t disappearing celebrities — is it really hard to believe someone who spent their first twenty years in China likes their government? Think about how many Americans think we’re the freest people in the world despite that being obviously untrue.


GGABueno

Or how people defend or ignore the atrocities comitted by their own country.


Stormtalons

People had a lot to lose if they didn't support the Nazis, too.


cudipi

Yeah, and those people were still nazis, just as Chan is a propagandist for China. He could just shut up about it, but he really seems to like the CCP.


ProgrammingPants

Somewhere else in the world, in a country where America has murdered countless children with drone strikes or sanctioned into poverty, a clip of an American celeb talking about their family gets posted. And people respond "Remember guys, he somehow supports the American government". As though some random celebrity is responsible for the actions of their government. Or as though supporting your country means support of every horrible thing it's done and is doing.


[deleted]

You're under arrest for having more than half an ounce of nuanced perspective in a public forum — please unhand all of your sanity and assimilate to the population of people who just spout things off without considering their wider/deeper implications.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Devlin_McGregor

Exactly.


Bokai

That celeb has more likely criticized the US gov. Though there are ultranationalist jingoists in the US film industry, the complaints towards American celebs seem to be from the opposite direction, that they're not patriotic enough. To speak to this specific issue, Jackie Chan doesn't get criticism for just being like, "I like China." He makes rather silly and specific political comments that get pushback not just from the international community but by other Chinese citizens because even within the restricted platforms in China he doesn't have to go as hard as he does. https://www.vice.com/en/article/wxqkn5/heres-why-jackie-chan-is-really-unpopular-in-hong-kong If an American celeb endorses drone strikes or "backs the blue" yeah people are right to point out they're assholes who endorse terrible positions. And there are many examples of American celebs getting that treatment, from Kanye to Chris Pratt.


true4242

This so much. Completely different comparison.


Shujinco2

To be fair, we don't like people who brown nose the American government either. You pretend people here are worshiping people like Ted Nugent when in reality a lot of us think he's a gross person.


CrazedToCraze

I just have to look at the cult like worship of Trump to understand all I need to know about Americans brown nosing their government.


N7_Evers

This is a great point. It made me think a lot about it


GamerX44

Fucking THANK YOU ! Felt like I was going insane with these idiots everywhere not understand humans aren't black and white ffs.


Lightbrand

But you know Americans can and truly do love its country yet in the same breath shit on its government all day no matter the party in charge. Don't cockroaches have perennial higher approval rating than congress? The difference being here the Constitution allows for "shitters" to spout whatever they want without fear of government repercussion. Whereas in China from every dynasty to even now, an Emperor can interpret some obscure hidden criticism of him in some random work of art thus can have the artists' lineage executed without appeal. So the jarring difference really is American government is allowed to be ruthless towards everybody else, except its own citizens. At least not overtly. One thing's for sure, you won't see Jackie Chan pasting shit you see all the time on Reddit when it comes to China.


ponfriend

American actors who support deliberately killing children with drones should rightly be criticized. Jackie Chan is criticized for being a Hongkonger who supports China's National Security Law, not for supporting his government in general.


afonsoel

Yeah, I know, I hate CCP as well, but it's a movie award for a person who works with movies, and he's undeniably good at it. Stop trying to ostracize people for their political views, it only worsens the polarization that's been fucking our lives.


1pLysergic

This is legit the problem with cancel culture. Context.


Redeem123

Did Jackie Chan get cancelled and I missed it? Or are you just calling all criticism “cancel culture” because it’s a fun scapegoat?


DrMonkeyLove

Yeah, don't judge people based on their actions and beliefs! So, should we start talking about how great Roman Polanski is, or maybe what great things Harvey Weinstein did for the industry, or how much we loved the Cosby show?


IskarJarak88

I'm guessing if you live in China you have to, just see what happened to jack ma after he spoke against CCP.


senorpuma

What happened to jack ma?


IskarJarak88

He disappeared for 3 months, I'm guessing CCP re-educated him mildly.


lolcory

JACK MA BALLS


physalisx

Ofc this is almost the top comment here. Fucking fuck off


51LV3R84CK

So what. You’d probably support greater evils for less.


Guffliepuff

Just because you would doesnt mean everyone else will..


rje946

Everyone's a hypocrite so nobody can be criticized!


TheTalkingCookie

Lmao isn’t there only one party In China? Didn’t the ccp bring many Chinese from poverty. If you’re American and support democrats or republicans don’t you support the murder of thousands of Arabs, coups , and civilians? So tell me who supports the real murderers?


true4242

He doesn't just support CPP, he supports their oppressive and anti-democracy stance openly.


carmel33

So does Disney and Reddit eats up Marvel movies like genocide was going out of style.


DrMonkeyLove

I say fuck Disney too and their bullshit pandering to China.


cudipi

It’s almost like we can do two things at once! “Oh you don’t like the CCP? You live in America!!“ -yeah and our government is fucking shit too. At least I can say that without being sent to a concentration camp.


TheOldAngryAnus

Yeaaaa I don’t care. I’m a big boy and can still like people even when we have different views and beliefs. You should try it!

And he is a piece of shit father.


kongdk9

Your country is in bed with the CCP fool. In case you don't know, individual people in power in almost all corporations and politicians have vested $$ interest. Must be nice to be so naive.


JaredLiwet

He's also a pretty shit father.


LokiArchetype

My dad always said "Son."


tb200

Mine always says that too.

Kiwifisch

My dad never did. Because we don't speak English at home.


heyimrick

"I am disappoint"


Ben_ji

Yeah. Once. >Son, I'm going out to get cigarettes.


Thebeginningofthe3nd

I'm not crying..You're crying. Okay, I know he's not the best person. That's already clear. But i grew up watching his movies with my dad. (It was our closest bond). So to see him get recognition like this after all these years, and him so humbly accepting feels good. Add to that, you know Stallone is damn proud of him too.


s604567

Wait, why is Jackie Chan not the best person? Can someone fill me in


Harudera

He's a fervent supporter of the CCP after they jailed his son. Idk how they can blame him for that though. I'd support whoever you want in order to keep my family safe.


dexmonic

He was an ardent supporter before his sons fiasco. But be assured the ccp likely made it clear their expectations before his son was even a twinkle in his Jackie's eye


Shiroi_Kage

Like anyone can be based in China and not be a massive supporter. They will make sure you're a massive supporter, especially if you're as huge and Jackie. I wouldn't put it past the CCP to erase the entire place he came from and the people in it as retaliation if he began saying anything against them.


Thebeginningofthe3nd

Supposedly he wasn't a good father/husband. He admits it. And although I don't feel he did well in those regards, there's definitely much shittier celebs out there. People always bring this up when Chan is brought up. https://radaronline.com/exclusives/2018/11/jackie-chan-memoir-sex-prostitutes-bad-father-husband/


TheIndigenousWaffle

Second, what did he do?


theycallmecrack

He doesn't want to piss off the CCP so he abandoned his kids and is leaving them nothing because of their views (and drugs) iirc That being said Chan was a terrible husband and fucked lots of prostitutes. Hypocrite and a coward.


Actual_Misanthrope

Mm yes, he sounds less than perfect. BURN HIM

Malamutewhisperer

Roughly all of them


heyodi

Uh oh. Care to elaborate?


Cutanea

> As Time points out, martial arts action movie star Jackie Chan is the latest celebrity to be named in the papers. > According to the magazine, the documents reveal that Chan owns at least six companies that are managed by Mossack Fonseca, the Panama law firm from which the papers originate. However, just because Chan is mentioned in the documents, it does not mean or imply that he is guilty of any wrongdoing. In fact, the ICIJ specifically wrote in its report that “there is no evidence that Chan used his companies for improper purposes.” > There’s nothing illegal about owning an offshore company or bank account, and it’s actually the recommended option in some cases. If the companies or accounts are being used to hide money or evade taxes, that’s where the trouble begins. https://consequence.net/2016/04/jackie-chan-named-in-panama-papers-leak/

Redditors will say soy slogans and post Winnie the Pooh memes and think they did something to China lmao


Actual_Misanthrope

I don't think it worked, try again


Greyteaser

It's surprising to learn in the comments, that he is a bad IRL person … I only know him through his movies, which I grow up with and really enjoy.


weirdsnake642

Nah dont trust all of it, he have flaw and kind normal level of jerk but nowhere near to the devil they painted


steam_pump

what Devil did they paint? The most common two criticisms of him are that he's an asshole to his offspring and he's a ccp shill. it's not demonizing him but fair criticism. you can take it for what it is.


MaroonAndOrange

The ccp shill thing is true, but I would also fall in line to keep my family safe. Speaking out against the party will make you disappear.


PurpleSwampDonkey

Yeah, we all get it. The CCP is objectively bad. But what the hell is he supposed to do? Denounce the CCP and oops, be banned from China? Never see his family again? Lose his home(s)? People here are so stupid. He gains nothing from denouncing them but loses everything.


Sylphid_FC

He gains respect from armchair activists. Who cares about safety, money, family or anything. All you need is for Twitter mobs to praise you with love while you rot in reeducation camps.


MaroonAndOrange

Exactly.


LordTwinkie

All of fucking Hollywood is a CCP shill, shit so is the NBA and shoe manufacturers


coconutjuices

Redditors just love tearing people down. I think it makes them feel better about themselves.


varienus

I mean, we all are bad persons in the eye of others, he is human at the end, humans are not perfect. Has he killed anyone and acted as he never did? No. Then for me he is just another person with flaws of his own.


woopwoopwoopwooop

Bad for dodging taxes and pretending to agree with a government that will wipe you out if you don’t? Nah. Everyone in here would do the same. If that’s all he’s done then I wouldn’t call him anything close to bad.


Drewfus_

Dude is so humble. Makes me even happier for him.


Liimbo

Lol it astounds me how different the west views him opposed to his home country. I don’t get how he maintains a saint image here while being viewed as a massive POS in China.


BigbyBaner

So humble he decided to cheat on his pregnant wife and defend his actions cause he wanted to keep his "options" open as well as disowning his daughter. Such a humble human being


Fro_o

Didn't he publicly humiliate his son as well because he smoked marijuana?

dunnonemore18

Hard to believe this wasn’t made up


PlayerSalt

If Jackie Chan didnt qualify for an award and needed an honorary award they need a new catagory for something I dont know like absolute badass or something or physical performance or going above and beyond in a role ; he is absolutley the most deserving person in that room


omnomnomgnome

an honorary award is not lesser than a regular award


Audreygateau

Agreed. I hate how the Oscars value dramatic films over every other genre. As if being funny makes you a lesser actor. Or silliness is low brow. It's just a different artistic expression. Comedy is fucking hard and the best at it, really work on their material.


weaponizedpastry

I’m glad he’s happy but I have no idea what that prize is. 🤷🏼‍♀️😂


fscknuckle

That's an Oscar.


i_do_da_chacha

It’s from a burrito eating contest


JBCronic

*sorts by controversial*


Handy_Newman

He deserves the award for this scene in Drunken Master alone https://youtu.be/74OBuMA2qEk


_N4SH_

He really deserves it


Replaay

That's not his. That's property of the chinese government.


limitlessEXP

People mad because he’s a “shill” for the Chinese government, you’d have to hate and despise half of the American population for being “proud Americans” America is a really fucked up place too, don’t pretend like it’s not. Tons and tons of celebrities have done far far worse things and nothing good. Jackie has done a ton of good things for the world.


BextoMooseYT

My favorite part of this is "I break so many bones"


Turin_Inquisitor

oh well i guess it's time to rewatch the Drunken Master and Armour Of God movies again.

Reminder that Jackie Chan dodged taxes and let his daughter out of wedlock be homeless because she's gay


sinsquaretriangle

A reminder that people are not inherently 100% good esp celebrities but its sometimes ok to appreciate someone's craft without digging too deep into their family matters. What skeletons do you have in your closet?


hawaiianshirtday2

Unless you’re Keanu reeves level of celebrity perfection Reddit will drag you thru the mud.


JessicaBlackRose98

Can you link a article where said he against his daughter being gay since all I can find is from her perspective
