I’m not sure how much of it is stupidity and how much of it is just a lack of empathy or sensitivity. I have a theory that may apply here, if I may be so bold.
I was just talking to my son about how the majority of people seem to forget (or not care) that their actions affect other people. I’m sure many of these people are perfectly intelligent in conversation, but you release them into the wild and they appear stupid because their actions make no sense to people who do have common courtesy. If my theory is true, then one could even say that this is probably the major problem with the world today.
Everyone is going have their own a opinion. But let me guess, BECAUSE he’s a celebrity his opinion matters?! There’s a whole blog dedicated to hating on the Japanese and saying it’s their karma. THIS ISN’T NEWS! Who cares what this one man with money and lack of acting skills has to say.
Actually, this is worthy of mentioning because he got fired from a high-profile job for being an idiot and saying edgy things about Japan. Had he not gotten fired, we would’ve ignored it. But because he did, it’s news (sorta).

Since then, she and others have been sleeping on the floor at a school in the city of Iwaki. She and other residents of Narahama are among the 200,000 people who have been forced from their homes by the situation at Fukushima. The town had no plan for anything like this and was caught off-guard. That’s because the reactor was made to withstand a quake, but not a tsunami. source (via • follow)
The situation here is just beyond belief, almost everything has been flattened. The government is saying that 9,500 people, more than half of the population, could have died and I do fear the worst.International Red Cross Federation official Patrick Fuller • Describing the situation in Otsuchi, just one of the many towns hit by the earthquake in Japan. Death toll estimates are expected to far exceed 10,000 people, and thousands of bodies have already been found. Remember how we gave that warning about early death toll estimates? This was why. source (via • follow)
