Jeremy Irony Lights Up Controversy (Again)

April 4, 2011

The star of Showtime’s newest historically inaccurate hitBorgiasbelieves smokers deserve the same protections as disabled folks, which, of course, is nothing but foolishness. Jeremy, why are you constantly bananas? Here’s a suggestion: QUIT SMOKING OR QUIT BITCHING. Just sayin’. Trust me; I’m doing the legwork.

Mr Irons, who was in New York to guest-star in an episode of Law & Order, a television series, described the measures as “ludicrous and a terrible bullying of a minority that cannot speak back.” Smokers should be protected like “handicapped people and children”, he told an interviewer for New York magazine, who said the 62-year-old’s teeth were “a testament to a life of indulgences.”

Do I really need to unpack all the problematic hot messery in Irons’ statements are has he done all the work for me?

    Putting smokers in the same basket as disabled children. That’s class – or, in this case, klarse.

    He is always good for a fatuous statement. Actually this seems rather tame for him, though it’s still within his usual range of tactlessness and bad taste.

    SMH. I didn’t know Irons was prone to saying wackadoo things; he’s said worse?!

    I don’t normally approve of people making fun of others’ dental situation, but in this case, Irons deserves it.

    Also not a fan of Irons equating disabled folks with children.
