The sad thing is, I truly don’t believe Melissa and Jeremy feel bad about this. If they did this on camera, I can’t even imagine what has been said behind the scenes.
Jeremy’s first apology was all him. He thinks he’s the victim for being called out and saw nothing wrong with what he did. And I’m sure that’s how Melissa feels too.
His second one has PR written all over it.
And the fact that Melissa took part in it is what really gets me. Because I could just ignore Jeremy and not care about Winn at the end of the day.
But when the lead and the face of the show does something like that? You can’t erase that. I now know that a character that’s supposed to embody hope and acceptance has the face and is played by an actress that is perfectly okay with making a group of fans feel like shit.
And has yet to apologize.
At least Jeremy fucking tried.
I can never be able to separate character from actor that much for me to be able to ignore that. At least not on screen.
