“What it all means.”
When you listen to people who have been blackballed in Hollywood, there is this same saying over and over again, “They’re difficult.” And to me, I have always wondered, what does that mean. We keep hearing this word, but no one seems to explain what is meant by being difficult. Can anyone name an instance?
Or could it be that the person or people calling you difficult says so and is not used to explaining why.
In an environment that prides itself on being so inclusion and so open, it is also a place where no one really tells the truth about anything. And for those who have decided to speak out, what is it about them that sets them aside from the rest that don’t talk. Do they possess a certain moral judgement or do they now have nothing to lose?
Recently comedian Monique’s name has been brought up again due to her receiving such a low deal from Netflix. She has been a person who has been accused of being difficult, but no one can explain difficult moments. Which prompts you to ask a lot of questions.
When you look at the demands of certain celebrities who are considered difficult you come to a consensus. Difficult is wanting anything that is an inch more out of a mile that could contribute to your overall happiness that a boss is not willing to give. You would think it is something major, but a minor issue is made into a major problem to keep everything and everyone in check.
Another example of difficulty is existing in an environment having anything to say that does align itself with the overall mood of what everyone else is pushing. So if you are conservative in a room full of liberals keep quiet. Your views could get you hurt. Because other than the two examples above, no one can explain what is difficult.
With what has been said about the celebs who are blackballed, it only makes the Me Too and Times Up movements appear weak. Because the same way that people in entertainment stand behind the machine to push against the blackballed Monique is the same reason Harvey Weinstein stayed on top so long. And all it does it show people in society that business as usual still exist.
