R3 not intending this to sound as shady as it will but he’s so good at keeping in touch and responsive to both famous and not as famous friends. It’s a really good trait and clear why so many actors who blow up (Georgie, Emily, even Isabella) stay so fond of him.

Re the stylist: if she offered to pull some pieces for him and said “the only thing is you have to tag me and the designers” it’s not that unusual. As someone above said he flew in last minute, but also if he really wanted to deliver on the theme that was probably a worthwhile trade off. Bash said “outrageous glamour” and with no insult to Kit, Will, or Tobie, because they still looked good and are generally pretty low key dressers, Joe was one of the only men who followed through - probably thanks in part to Holly suggesting things; I doubt pulling velvet womenswear would’ve occurred to him. Holly and Joe seem to have a pretty close relationship (she and Bash also follow and comment on one another) so even if she just helped him find and pick pieces he’d give her s shout out.

by Anonymousreply 40December 22, 2022 1:35 PM

R35 you can always check his twitter. I think the wedding post is the same. Don't really think he'd care about archiving one specific picture when Joe's all over his IG. I do remember some pictures of him and Joe at the wedding, but that might have just been a story or on Joe's account

I'm glad he got over the need to only have 50 posts up on IG. Growth

R39 wasn’t actually referencing you; I only posted after everyone’s favourite poster with a weird fixation on hating Joe decided it was yet more proof of him being a terrible boyfriend. That said I think chances are high the styling happened pretty organically; I doubt Joe is at the level of thinking himself famous to ask her to dress him for a party. Guessing it wasn’t him going “I’m hiring you for this”; more likely during Emmys prep or something he just mentioned bash’s birthday theme and she went “actually I can probably pull some designer pieces for you, you just need to tag me and the designers”

Yes, same. I just thought it was quite funny! I’m pretty surprised he’s posted at all to be honest. I thought the days of posting his private life were done.

R103 agreed. To be honest (ignoring the queerbaiter and “ugly” people Who have tormented Kit and Joe, obviously they’re awful but focusing on the actual fandom), while obviously it’s horrible for Bash and to a degree Joe who get shit nonstop, it sucks even for the “golden boys/girls” (primarily Kit and Yaz) who the fandom insists can do no wrong or are perfect. They’ve seen how absolutely batshit they are about their less famous costar (Bash); they must anticipate that any minor wrong which to these lunatics includes following a US president on Twitter means they would be “cancelled” and screeched at by these insane hordes

Didn't Kit mention something about thinking that they think they could do nothing right online? Even if they don't get attacked they know it's only a matter of time before they do.

And the main thing people shit on Bash lately is for being rich and that his family acted 200 years ago. It's true, so not much he can do about it. They also randomly tried to start some shit about him dating Joe when Joe was 17 again, but they never catches on much since people would have to admit the obvious and it's stupid even for them.

R105 I think the age gap stuff is also helped to not be an issue because Nick is explicitly written to be 18 months older than Charlie. It’s stretching believability even for the psychos who hate bash to adore that couple who met at 16 and 14 (arguably a more “serious” age gap) and think 19 and 17 is predatory. It is funny seeing the nepotism stuff, especially given a commercial featuring kit (his first role) has been all over Twitter this week and he’s gotten no nepotism labelling even though his mums literal job is directing or producing TV commercials. To be clear I don’t think he’s a nepo baby either; he’s really talented and doing commercials didn’t land him Elton John or Nick. But if 200 year old dead stage actors are enough surely that should be

by Anonymousreply 106January 4, 2023 11:43 PM

I'm surprised they don't make a bigger deal about a 14 year old and a 16 year old now actually. They say Kit is "freshly18" even if he's almost 19 and Joe was "barely 17" when he met Bash, even if he was almost 18. So a 14 year old is almost a 13 year old, which is barely a pre-teen which is almost a 12 year old according to their logic. Though they only bring up age when it's convenient. Like some Bash fans were saying he was sexy and some people got mad saying not to sexual the 21 year old adult man.

I think Bash has talked about being privileged before and Kit has mentioned his family are in the business, but not the exact same business. So they are aware of it. And Joe has talked about feeling he couldn't compete with people like Kit and Bash for roles, didn't mention them by name obviously but those London kids who can do West End on the weekend and take acting lessons, etc.

Bash is either up at 3-4 am London time for the past 2 days (has liked things at that time both days) or more likely he’s in Atlanta with Joe.

Unrelated but both of them posted on their finstas within the past 2 days.

Given their prior history and Bash being obvious with his likes I'd guess he went with him, espeically if he's off for the weekend and just settling in.

Atlanta filming said 3 days ago Agatha hadn't begun filming and he would know a few days before they did and he hasn't updated yet, so maybe it doesn't start for a bit.

R133 I haven’t seen much of that recently either although I don’t exactly do deep dives into twitter to look. The constant harping on about how everyone hugs/ kisses/ holds hands/ spends two years joined at the hip with their platonic friends and cancelling anyone that suggests otherwise seems to have stopped at least in the higher profile accounts.

It felt like the brutality of the autumn attacks on Joe and Bash followed by Kit’s coming out and their subsequent wholesale retreat from social media and the twitter fanbase forced some vague sense of reality into their dysfunctional online world. Nothing too life changing but enough of a sense of unease to make them think in any brief flashes of self awareness that maybe just maybe they were the problem and should give it a rest.

Then after Brazil in particular it just became so ridiculous to deny the ratios got uncomfortable and they seemed to mostly give up or at least shut up

by Anonymousreply 139January 8, 2023 3:09 AM

R139 agreed. they were briefly rejuvenated by their purposeful misreading of the GQ article where Joe explicitly said “media making money off my love life speculations is gross” and decided fans saying “they’re a cute couple” Wes equally inappropriate. But that kind of died down again when Joe then proceeded to take bash as his plus one not only to the actual GQ event but also brazil and the Emmys (and now Atlanta). Now they’re just clinging to the fact that they have the right to dislike Bash (one of them hilariously is a trans person who named himself after joe which is puzzling). At some point asking people to ignore the obvious becomes too much even for them.

Bash is looking particularly attractive in these Atlanta pictures. I mean they both look great and relaxed, but Bash extra tousled, chilled and very happy. If I was a romantic I would say he was glowing.

Puts me in mind of what he said at New Year about wishing he could bottle 2022 in spite of all the shit the deranged fan element have put them through and why not? He has a very cute boyfriend who he is clearly madly in love with, they have both had an insanely successful year professionally and personally, and he’s presumably just had a great birthday and holiday season with loved ones.

It makes me happy to see two deserving young gay men so happy in life and together

R171 took me a minute to get that. How little of a shit the fandom gives about the lead actor is honestly a bit impressive.

I do think bash will probably say / do something, not even because of the backlash (though that doesn’t help) but because I think he’s a genuinely nice person who actually does care about trans rights.

Obviously his PR should draft it if he posts but Something like “I signed the contract and did the voice acting in 2020. I should have done more diligence on the author and whether profits would go to her at the time. Now that her blatant transphobia is public I am horrified and saddened, and sincerely apologize to everyone hurt by my participation. I have donated my earnings to XYZ Trans Org and encourage others to donate there. Trans rights are human rights” would not shock me

I don't think he'll say anything about it. HP is still a huge franchise and the game is getting a lot attention. It's expected to be one of the best selling games this year.

I don’t even want to look at twitter and sincerely hope neither Joe or Bash are.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if he says something about this. It is likely he did it quite a while ago before the extent of JK’s transphobia became known and genuinely isn’t comfortable with it now. At the same time he would have known this was coming and exactly what the reaction would be.

We know Bash is not a transphobe, anyone with any grasp of reality knows that, and life decisions are complex. But try telling the deranged twitter monsters who can finally smell blood and a sense of justification for their months of irrational hate. They can give a reason to themselves and others that avoids them admitting they are a bunch of chronically entitled homophobic bullies who have never forgiven Joe for falling in love with the wrong boy.

I hope they all cancel him and Joe once and for all and finally fuck the hell off and leave them alone

I felt compelled to have a look in the end and it was basically as expected. From everything apparently settling down we have now moved to complete cancellation even by the die hard Bash sympathisers among the big accounts. It feels final and I hope it is but after Joe’s cancellation they all turned again as if nothing had happened so who knows?

Interesting that it seems to have drawn the attention of some accounts with no connection to the Heartstopper fanbase who seem pretty horrified at the apparent irrational, disproportionate and unprovoked wave of hate against a young actor having no prior knowledge of how the fans conduct themselves and their vendetta against Bash.

There are a few trying to stand against the tide with futile defensive attempts at reason. It is a waste of time they need to just ignore until it eventually calms down.

It has reached the point where someone needs to tell them to just leave him alone if they hate him so much. According to them he is an abuser, abuse supporter, misogynist, racist, nepo baby, transphobe, anti semite, predator, hanger on and I am sure I have missed plenty more. If he is even half of those things why are they even engaging with the show? Why are they supporting the cast and creator who love and support him? If they love a monster why aren’t they calling them out like they call out anyone who supports Johnny Depp? Because that description sounds far worse than Johnny ever was.

It is so much hate and lies against a kind, well loved young gay man just because they cannot separate reality from fantasy. They have done everything entitled bullies can do to make him go away from Joe and Heartstopper and to his credit he has just carried on loving and living his life. Meanwhile in their rabbit holes they feed off the invented justification for their hate because they cannot possibly just be the baddies and the jealous, spiteful ones who are throwing a tantrum because he is messing with their parasocial fantasies

by Anonymousreply 189January 12, 2023 4:46 AM

At the end of the day Bash was never going to come out the other side of HS in a positive light in the HS fandom because he ruins their fantasy of Joe and Kit skipping off into the sunset and being the real life Nick and Charlie, whether they admit that's the reason or not. You only have to glance at other fandoms to see this isn't a new thing; anyone that even dares look at Harry or Louis is treated as though they have killed an orphanage. The quicker Bash can land new jobs and move away from the HS fandom the better.

100%. Same with YR. The hate Omar’s boyfriend gets is horrendous. And some of them have now turned on Omar because he had the audacity to block people leaving these shitty comments. And it’s all because it ruins their Omar & Edvin ship.

It’s sad though because I bet all of these actors can’t wait to get away from these shows that they personally love & have ultimately opened up a world of opportunity. Joe must be beyond grateful to HS & I assume would love to look back at the entire time fondly. But it’s tainted by the idiotic fans who have no clue how to behave. I think they’ll breathe a sigh of relief to leave it behind.

I don’t like JKR either, but they’re really dumb if they think the others won’t work with or do something “problematic” going forward. They’re already cancelling Joe for wiccan because he’s the wrong type of white; what happens to their fragile psyche if Kit takes a David O Russell or MeL Gibson filn role or something because their careers are more important than the feelings of unhinged fans?

by Anonymousreply 197January 12, 2023 2:10 PM

JKR also didn't have anything to do with the game. Her comments actually make it difficult for the people who are working on the game to have a livelihood. I've read some comments about how everyone pretty much hates her because they worry about her ruining the popularity of the game. Game development is notoriously hard work and people aren't treated well.

I'm more annoyed with some of the comments about how Bash is "only" supportive of cis gay men as if that's a horrible thing to do to support gay men, but there is the suggestion that he only cares about himself. But it's not even true. His charity work has always been about the whole LGBTQ umbrella, not just gay men. I don't care if people get upset about shit, get upset, but it's just they immediately go with the worst possible accusations with him. He gave a nuanced answer about Ben - he's a abuse apologist, he follows Trump - he's a Trump support, he works on a HP game - he's a TERF and anti-Semitic. Then they use all these weird ass leaps in logic to say he's always been problematic and is constantly doing horrible things.

Well, I did laugh at people calling him "nepo boyfriend" yesterday.

But HS really can't end soon enough for me.

R198 I noticed that coming out as well from the usual suspects pushing the Bash has always been problematic narrative. They have tried misogyny and racism before and “isn’t it weird he doesn’t have many poc friends?” is now “it’s always been creepy how he only supports gay men” as proof he is a transphobe.

There is more than a little homophobia in it as there always has been underlying the Joe and Bash hate. It has been said before but they are largely a young, female, pretty sexless and uptight group who seem to quite openly view male sexuality as inherently gross, predatory and offensive. And Joe and Bash are both proudly gay men who have clearly been doing a lot more than just holding hands for a long time unlike their chaste play things Nick and Charlie.

For the fanbase of a story based around two boys falling in love they sure don’t like gay men being gay

by Anonymousreply 218January 12, 2023 6:54 PM

I doubt Joe and Bash would care about some semi-racy comments about them, which at worst is all people say here.

It's pretty obvious they don't mind if people like them together, even twitter weirdos who @ them embarrassing shit. They are much more bothered by hateful crap

R218 This place is the ideal sweet spot where no one is in denial about Joe and Bash being together and we're not overrun by weird fraus who fetishize them (except for one comment that read a little frauish yesterday, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt).

R216 A lot of the things on her CC are weird, but these two are...particularly weird, at least to me. Full caucasians? All men are vers?

I just think she wants to imagine Bash getting fucked. Nice dream, but....

But it's a typical progressive frau thing to think every man is vers. Like Alice thinks women came up with the terms top/bottom

R223 it’s genuinely funny. I read her CC exactly once and I’m pretty sure it was the fanfiction woman replying, saying people were stereotyping thinking that Joe is a bottom. She said she got the vers “statistic” from dating app data

I honestly would not want to be famous these days. You have to be perfect. You have to be versed on every single possible problematic thing about everything that exists. You’ve gotta be holier than Greta T and even then, there’ll be something you didn’t consider. You’ll eat a sandwich from Pret and be cancelled because how can you not know that Pret is killing independent cafes. Or you’ll wear something from Primark & OUTRAGE cos sweatshops.

by Anonymousreply 226January 12, 2023 8:24 PM

I’m not saying this in a “woe is him” way, but for all people are now accusing him of only caring about gay guys and not about trans people, he clearly really cares about the whole community. Even putting aside the hate and shit he’s getting for this, He probably independently doesn’t feel amazing about putting money in JKR’s pocket. That’s certainly not helped along by Twitter psychos.

by Anonymousreply 229January 13, 2023 2:45 AM

R229 they’ve turned the focus to anti-semitism now - I think because they’ve realized he actually did the game re her transphobic comments but they want an excuse to not “uncancel” him. I do think any of the cast would’ve gotten backlash for this announcement but aside from him and probably Joe, once people found out the timeline they would’ve cooled down a lot. Because it’s him it’s staying “unforgivable”

Not that I ever thought Pink News was the zenith of journalism but the 3 times they’ve tweeted that article today (one a seven tweet thread calling it problematic but never saying “it’s unknown when they recorded their dialogue”) shows they have no integrity at all

The Pink News Twitter account uses an auto-publisher that pushes out all of their stories multiple times, so it may not be the end of the Bash tweets.

The Pink News ratio is looking pretty bad for them I’ve had a read of the replies and they are almost all attacking them for setting Bash up for a kicking, outright bad journalism or making a fuss about nothing. It looks like some are Bash fans but there are others who are clearly older and not apparently Heartstopper related and some trans folk also taking offence at the article.

I don’t know what it has done for their engagement which was doubtless their main motivation but it doesn’t seem to have helped their popularity

Pink news really cut off their nose to spite their face. I don’t think they even believe that he is transphobic; they just know posting abt Heartstopper and more specifically what fans want to hear gets them clicks. Using a pic of him as Ben, citing only his name although Simon Pegg is way more famous, randomly mentioning anti semitism, saying nothing about the probable date of his casting - they know what they’re doing. The thing is a lot of their “credibility” (as they even said meeting Joe and bash last summer ironically) is from the cast RT and interacting with them. Aside from maybe some of the minor cast, no one else will now. Why would they when they know articles will be written and IG posts made about stupid minor Twitter scandals?

They are kids. Maybe the 15 year old don't realize it since they probably think a 21 year old is a senior citizen, but they both are kids who are not going to perfect. Not that I think Bash did anything wrong here.

Also what really bothers these people is Bash remains unbothered. I've seen so many complaints about how he just ignores their concerns constantly. They want a reaction from him and want him to make a full on notes app apologies with explanations every time they get mad (which is twice monthly at least). They also keep bringing up Kit saying would never do anything wrong because he's perfect. Kit might work with someone questionable in his career, I'd guess he will one day since it's unavoidable in Hollywood. He also might just in general fuck up.

I saw Bash, Kit, Will and Joe at The Trials, Bash was wearing that stupid Yankees cap, which tbh just made him look like a toddler, minus the hat he is very attractive, I think he pretty much matches what you see on screen. Personally I'd say Will and Joe are on a par, both extremely handsome, very angular, if Joe photographed better I have no doubt he'd be a model, Will probably isn't far off what you see on screen, Joe looks like a different person in real life. Kit isn't my personal cup of tea, but, I can see what people see him in, I was surprised how young he looked, but aside from that pretty much photographs as he is in real life.

To my taste (as a gauge I’m a Kit stan) Bash is most attractive but Joe is very very VERY close. The harsh angles and asymmetry that don’t serve him well in photos don’t really stand out in person at all. I can’t stress enough just how pretty he is.

R300 Interesting! I hope one day I get to see him in person, even in passing. He also isn't the best poser at events - he tends to do this sort of awkward closed mouth half smile that juts his jaw out in a strange way. Like people say, he's much better looking in motion! I thought his attractiveness varied in Heartstopper - some angles and lightings didn't do him any favours and I wouldn't have described him as particularly attractive, but then in other scenes with softer lighting and certain angles, he was pretty good looking. But then I thought the same about Kit in the show - they've both really grown into their looks since then.

Just judging by Paul Bettany who was the male lead (and a title character) but wasn't nearly as important as Wanda obviously and was missing from large parts of episodes with half the screen time she had. He didn't have much more screentime than Agatha did.

He could have a lot of off time so I could see Bash sticking around since it's too far for Joe to really go home.

I know this will blow over and it is a tiny number of people involved however loud but the emboldenment is beyond anything I have seen on there before. It is disturbing staring in to the face of a hate fuelled mob like that who seem to have lost all touch with reality. Some are openly saying they want to end his career and destroy his life I haven’t seen anyone bold enough to say they want him dead but what I have seen suggests it is only a matter of time and they are saying it in private. The holier than thou moral purists are mocking his appearance something they call body shaming and is usually a cardinal sin to them but they are joining in and laughing like the unhinged children they are.

That Masons involvement is really shocking and he is deliberately targeting their arch enemy’s account and actively encouraging their personal harassment of Bash. Having done some research he is a relatively small time author in the same genre and target audience as Heartstopper trying to get someone to pick up his film adaptation. I can only assume he is bitter and vindictive against Heartstopper’s success or perhaps he asked some from the cast, most likely Bash by the focus of his hate, to join his project and they turned him down. The way he has moved into the mass of the most toxic fan accounts and knew exactly how to get their attention suggests he has been watching the twitter fanbase for a while. By the responses he also seems to be blocking anyone who challenges him including at least some trans people.

I am not sure what impact this will have on his career plans but his behaviour beneath the cloak of being an offended non binary person is targeted, openly malicious and as unhinged as the teens he is now playing with who were themselves the ones largely responsible for driving Joe and Kit off of twitter. He is targeting a Netflix darling and by association the whole cast and show

by Anonymousreply 305January 15, 2023 1:42 PM

R305 to be fair re Mason, I think what’s more likely is 1. An element of legitimate offense but 2. Knowing the vast majority of their potential audience are the rabid Alice fans and trying to appeal to them. It’s definitely true they’re being over the top, I don’t know why they’re off on rants, but “pandering” by arguing with Fantasy Bliss for instance suggests less a Bash vendetta (though that is there too) and more knowing how to appeal to the Rabid hordes. That said I love the people who suggest that Mason being Alice’s “best friend” means Bash may be fired from s3. I also genuinely love the lack of irony from the fans tweeting “we feel so bad for Alice and understand she can’t cut him likely because she’s not in charge of that and it’s too late”… so they understand what contracts are and that you can’t just cut them loose till it comes to bash.

R311 He can be legitimately offended and not take it out on the 21 year old. His reply that actually 16 year old Bash should have already known what kind of person JK was is fucking stupid. 99% of people didn't fucking know until mid 2020's regardless of how much people try to rewrite history.

I’ve seen that guys books in bookstores. When I searched who he was, I recognized the cover. But I’ve never actually heard of anyone reading them. I read a lot and am usually pretty aware of what books are popular. He is trans and writes books with trans characters. He definitely wants all the Heartstopper fans to start buying his books.

R312 agreed that it’s more than the HS thread. Fwiw I’m a cis gay guy, but im 21 so right at the casts ages and more invested in them

by Anonymousreply 316January 15, 2023 2:41 PM

R314 I'm not saying he was right to attack Bash or to keep it going after the apology, he was an idiot for that, but I don't think the entire explanation here is that he was pandering to the HS fans to sell more books. You can tell he was feeding off of their energy because they were the ones paying attention to his tweets about Bash, amplifying and responding to his tirade. It turned into a feedback loop and went on for longer than it should have.

R313 I would agree, but sometimes we have the cringiest shit posted here about Joe and Bash as a couple, shit that reads like a gay romance novella written by a frau.

R310 I knew he was trans but being trans is not an excuse for being a shitty person and butt hurt feelings even if justified not an excuse for being a vindictive jerk.

The clear majority of Twitter responses have been supportive of Bash including a lot of trans people who some of whom challenged Mason themselves. Most of the outrage has been from non trans people speaking over them for moral superiority stars

by Anonymousreply 320January 15, 2023 2:53 PM

What baffles me is how these ridiculous idiots don’t see the harm they are causing to actual trans issues. There is already a lot of vitriol spewed at trans people. From the media, from the general public, even from the gay community. Bash isn’t the enemy. He’s locked into a contract he signed pre-JKs views became well known. Focusing on him being this enormous problem is ludicrous. Hes gay, he’s part of the community, he knows what it’s like to marginalised, bullied & belittled for who he is. Focus your anger on people & institutions who are actively awful to trans people. Focus on how to make the world better for all queer people. Do not hyper focus on a young adult who is openly queer & does so much for the queer community. He isn’t the problem.

by Anonymousreply 321January 15, 2023 4:12 PM

R321 I think that’s part of what’s annoying - DM covered it because it’s such a good setup for them. Young queer actor who raises money and advocates for these issues getting cancelled because he signed in pre JKR transphobia as a teen? Slam dunk as a way for them to shit on “cancel culture”, nothing makes them happier than the left cannibalizing their own

R331 the NY Post is not well regarded anywhere so doesn’t matter. Generally seen as semi right wing so the Twitter crazies can’t/won’t seize it as proof, and their general audience will be more upset he apologized at all than that he voiced the role.

3/4 of the trans cast hung out last night, it was one of their birthdays (a minor one, I don’t know his character name). It’s genuinely funny that despite everyone screeching and cancelling bash over this because apparently they’re SUCH trans advocates, I saw that pic posted a few times, Yaz’s selfies a tad more, and then white cis Kit posted EVERYWHERE by the same people

R336 It was such a non story to any normal person the minute it was known the contract pre dated her transphobic meltdown joining the list of all the other non events he has been attacked for.

In fact someone should make a list of everything he and Joe have been cancelled for if only for the black comedy of it if the rest of the world saw it that whole group of fans would be sectioned. Their inability to grasp reality or control their vindictiveness is really something to behold

R343 trying to cover their own asses too by conveniently not posting any context that shows he almost certainly couldn’t have known about her views 3 years ago, Just reiterating “ Rowling has campaigned tirelessly against trans inclusion in single-sex spaces, and she has emerged as one of Scotland’s most prominent opponents to gender recognition reform.” even cast members who may be genuinely annoyed at Bash (don’t know that there are any but devil’s advocate) are unlikely to fuck with Pink News after this, and Netflix and the show will not be pleased they linked the show to this drama. Also using a pic of him in costume as Ben is shitty. Talk about fucking up a good thing with the HS team to pander to a small portion of insane fans

by Anonymousreply 347January 17, 2023 7:29 PM

R346 good article, especially given it’s by someone trans boycotting the game - so the strongest opinion you can have on the subject. Especially liked this like: “ Those who do a lot are always expected to do more, and those who do nothing get a free ride.”

Will also note that aside from the flights of fancy people have about how easy it would be to escape the contract, the number of bridges he’d burn, especially given he was NOT famous signing on or doing the vast majority of the voicework (HS came out two and a half years or so after he signed the contract, would be insane). Everyone scoffs that it’s a video game, and just burning the JKR bridge is no big deal. WB is involved in making it. His agents and PR were involved in these contracts. The chances his agents would drop him, impeding his ability to get any future work, is higher than people think; WB is a massive studio. People point out that he’s wealthy and didn’t need the money, that he purports to care w lot about these issues and “made a platform” from it, and that this happened ages ago. instead of drawing the logical conclusion that given all that, the contract must have been QUITE onerous and the consequences very high for him to not break it; they’ve decided he’s a fake ass ally.

R349 Normally I wouldn't guess this as it would be fairly unprofessional but given the way the whole magazine is run, I genuinely would not be surprised if the Pink News CEO reached out to Bash with something conciliatory or nice after the first article, just given he follows him, Joe, and Doulla and met them in person. Partially because Joe's block made them freak out a bit and partially because they really did lead to a lot of the hate (don't know Mason Deaver would have noticed otherwise). Obviously no basis for that theory, but it seems possible.

by Anonymousreply 352January 17, 2023 10:57 PM

R297 very delayed reply, but have seen Bash and Joe in person (can't speak to Will or Kit). Reiterating what the others said - Bash is very handsome but looks like he does in photos and on screen. Good looking, great skin, around 6 foot I would guess. Joe is shockingly attractive. I never thought he was ugly, thought he was a cute kid who would age well after seeing him in S1, but wasn't necessarily wowed. In person, I definitely was - fantastic bone structure, great smile, really really striking looking. The LA person describing him as pretty is fairly spot on; he is not feminine or androgynous per se but has something really gentle about him despite the strong bone structure, very hard to look away from. Also, great lips. Think each individually would be the most attractive person in most rooms they walked into, and they're definitely a really good looking couple.

Honestly I’m glad the trades are keeping the anti Semitism part out of it. It’s not that I don’t fully understand the critiques that the game is anti Semitic; it’s that that was genuinely not a part of public discourse until AFTER she’d shown she was a transphobe and, from the people who despise him on Twitter, was hastily tacked on after they realized he probably signed on for the game before her transfer Beck tweets. It was just a way to say “well she’s always been antisemitic racist etc. so you’re still in the wrong”. adding it in gives a false illusion that that was broadly discussed before recently.

The anti Semitism complaints were frankly goal post moving so they can still be mad at him. Same thing with some of the biggest Bash haters who ranted about him still supporting Harry Potter, which they say is fine since they aren't working for JK and making her money. If HP is full of racism and anti Semitism at it's core, you shouldn't support it at all

In less shitty news, Bash added a couple more playlists on Spotify yesterday. Discussed in the HS thread yesterday, but he made the other one he had up private, though I guess made a few for fans. His profile is just his name
