More people cared about Stan Lee’s death than care about Bill Maher alive.
Three guys I admire - Neil Gaiman, Bill Maher, and Stan Lee - don't agree with each other? How terrible!
They're all in the entertainment industry and, while I've enjoyed all of their contributions, they've contributed nothing of lasting value to society. I'd trade the lot of them for one Elon Musk or Steve Jobs.
Triggered much, lol.
I didn't care about Stan Lee when he was alive. I don't care about Stan Lee now that he is dead.
Frankly, I kind of lean towards Bill on this. Childish things are for children. But I won't go ALL the way there because, to each his or her own. There are worse things to become fixated on than superheroes. Like . . . Religion?
The whole thing is reminiscant of when Steve Jobs kicked the bucket. Praise the brains behind the inventor of the toys we all love. The fact that he (and Lee) tended to behave monopolisticly . . . Yeah, let's leave that out.
Oh, Bill. he pisses me off sometimes. He pushes it sometimes. He has given me fits over jokes about women. He is a very intelligent and funny attention whore. Many children that would not read, read graphic novels. Many smart but lonely children read them too. Stan was a story man for the well-loved Spiderman and many others. People in art should me celebrated. I think the stereotyping of smart people buying comic books as kids has a grain of truth.
Why mock a dead man, his work and his fans when he did nothing to harm anyone and brought joy to so many? I wonder who Mahr thinks he is and how important he must perceive his talk show host status that he's throwing rocks at Stan Lee.
I've seen Mahr maybe twice while at other people's houses, I've been enjoying Stan Lee's creations consistently since I was four years old. This was simply a dick move against a dead man who did nothing to deserve it.
