lol you guys are acting as if this is a deep friendship and kat has been signing her instagram posts with “heil hitler” and that billie should have known!!!11!!
this is like. a celebrity friendship. they probably hang out maybe once every couple years and it isn’t Immidiately Recognizable that kat is allegedly anti semitic
like, djsjdkd i’m a jewish person who is invested in social justice and i literally had no clue about these rumors, you think billie, a 45 year old man who didn’t know how to end his livestreams is googling “YFIP” before he hangs out or collabs with someone?
like as someone who has actually experienced antisemitism, and isn’t being performative with my moral outrage, it isn’t immidiately noticeable. like, you can be friends with someone for YEARS and then they’ll throw in a jew joke that comes out of left field.
AGAIN. Kat lives in LA and runs a makeup empire and her own tattoo shop and we all know billie is off doing a million things, do y'all really think they’re talking about anything slightly controversial? no, they’re probably talking about music, sobriety, tattoos, etc, the 1-2 times they hang out, like
i’m not excusing her and i don’t think that billie is perfect, but you guys are crazy if you think normal people google everyone they collaborate with to see if they’re problematic djsjkdkdsk
even IF billie knew (which. lmao) she “claims” that she didn’t actually send the picture that said “burn in hell jewbag” and that someone took one of her stock photos she gave out for autographs and made her look bad (i don’t believe that, but there ya go. but also. why would they talk about something from 2008 that wasn’t well publicized), the equating the slaughter of animals to the holocaust is fucked up, but AGAIN. it was 1 post that billie may or may not have seen and could be written off in his mind as her just being REALLY into animal rights. like, uh, the shoah is literally one of the worst things to happen in human history and i don’t blame people for not being fully able to connect people making comparisons of it to people being antisemetic.
but ANYWAYS that’s implying that billie was at any point fully invested in googling kat von d’s history to make sure she’s never said anything bad, which is a ridiculous expectation. she is not outwardly a nazi, at a surface glance she seems like a nice lady, and she definitely isn’t spitting racist rhetoric every time she opens her mouth, so how would he POSSIBLY know??
and lmao guys he isn’t perfect either, like i said. u think i believe the bs he says at concerts abt how we all love each other whether we’re liberal or conservative? must be easy to say that when you live in the Most Liberal Part of california!!!! i don’t like how he makes molestation jokes even though he probably thinks it’s okay because he’s always the butt of the jokes. i don’t like how he used the n-word in a song, even though he was “quoting a racist”.
your favs aren’t morally pure, YOU guys aren’t morally pure, you talk about not wanting to buy her product so you don’t seem like you’re supporting antisemitism when all your clothes are made from child laborers in sweatshops overseas. ever shop at urban outfitters/free people/anthropologie/zara? they’re like. VERY antisemetic, and that even shows through in some of their products, unlike kat’s line. ever eat/drink a nestle product? they give free samples of formula to women in africa so they stop making breast milk and are forced to buy their product, and then hike up the price. ever shop at walmart? they’ve been known to steal people’s passports from a shrimp processing plant in thailand and force them to work to get them back which can literally be considered human trafficking. not to mention how they treat their workers in the USA or the immigrants they hire and force to work 7 days a week or else they’ll deport them.
the world is fucked up!!!! if u are gonna be disappointed in anyone who even ASSOCIATES with someone or something that’s problematic u ain’t gonna have a fun time!! u can’t put billie on a pedestal and expect him to never associate with anything harmful ever!!!
