Celebrities are being called out every day for sexual harassment and assault, leaving the rest of us feeling hurt and betrayed by these people we felt like we knew. While some fans can't seem to handle the cognitive dissonance of learning that their beloved celebrities aren't who we thought they were, most most of us sadly take note, "Oh, no! Not him! I loved him!" we say as we move the latest celebrity creep out of the Love column and into the Creep column. Each day, it seems, another hero falls.
In this environment of celebrities falling from grace, Twitter user @BAKKOOONN started a new conversation.
BAKOAN asked the twitterverse to share stories of celebrities being nice. And the “nice allegations” started rolling in. It turns out, there are a lot of good people among the rich and famous.
People encounter celebrities every day in all sorts of situations.
Way to go Lou! When was the last time you thought of Lou Diamond Phillips? I’m glad to know that the guy I fell in love with after seeing 1987’s La Bamba is a nice guy.
The best is when you find out that a whole ensemble cast are really friends and funny people.
I know that this tweet didn’t say anything about them being friends, but in my head they totally are. Dax and Kristen’s kids will grow up with Ted Danson as a kindly, funny uncle figure.
Please, Ted Danson, don’t turn out to be a creep. Please say you’ve never succumbed to the lechery of so many of your peers!!
Here's one that will make your heart grow three sizes.
If there’s a celebrity we want to be able to continue to love, it’s Robin Williams. We all know how his story ends. Let’s hope his legacy, as plagued by demons as he was, continues to shine for his unique genius, comedic brilliance, and huge heartedness.
Pies are a terrific apology food.
Sure, he throws neighborhood disturbing parties. But, PIES! Way to go, Jared.
The “nice allegations” kept pouring in…
