Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of Kristen Stewart’s acting capabilities, I don’t actively follow her on social networking sites, she’s of very little interest to me. However, I heard along the grapevine today that she’s been fired from starring in the second instalment of Snow White and the Huntsman, following the coming out of her affair with director Rupert Sanders.
Now Rupert Sanders, a husband and father of two, has escaped this punishment, and is still allowed to direct the second movie. Good old-fashioned sexism in it’s finest form, don’t you just love it? The woman in the affair is frowned upon and fired – yet the male gets by relatively easy in comparison.
Seriously, it makes no sense to punish solely Kirsten Stewart by axing her from the second movie. If anything, both of them should be treated the same amount – they’re guilty of the same thing. What’s the point, Hollywood? This whole double standard bullshit bugs the hell out of me. Discriminating Kristen because she’s a woman and ‘ladies don’t have affairs with married men’? It’s 2012, not 1950! After everything, you’d think we’d learn a thing or two from human behaviour and accept that this sexist bullshit is just that – bullshit!
