So in case you have been too busy reading the news about world events, the election, weather catastrophes… you might have missed that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson! I know. I know. Important stuff here.
So this 22-year old girl cheated on her boyfriend with a married man. The director of her last film Snow White. This is pretty scandalous, not to mention tacky to be the other woman with a man who has two kids and wife…. But does this girl really owe the world a public apology for what she did?
I get that being a celebrity means that your life is on display as much as your work. We don’t just judge people’s talents, but also the personal brand they create for themselves. Their persona impacts their career just as much as their talent. This is the system she signed up for. But there is something absurd about tearing apart a young woman because of sexcapades… all adventurous women have them.
The thing that I find most alarming is that women/girls are the ones who are truly fuming. She is getting death threats on twitter by thousands of enraged chicks! Actual quote here
“Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert with her director…WTF! *loads and cocks gun* Imma kill that bitch :/”
Girls are losing their minds with fury that Kristen would do such a thing. But are they really mad at Kristen’s behavior, or just that she is with Rob at all? I think the true anger comes from the fact that they aren’t rich and famous with a rich famous boyfriend and hate Kristen for having not only dating Rob, but having the audacity to treat him like a *gasp* regular guy! How dare she!?
She wasn’t married with kids. That was his problem. She is a 22-year old with a boyfriend. Committed relationships are boring, especially when you are young. You want to be adventurous, take risks, and follow passion. I was never really a fan of Kristen, (mainly because she is way more successful than me – which makes me feel threatened and inadequate), but I feel like branding her with a scarlet letter is hypocritical.
People cheat, especially young beautiful insanely rich people. There are countless stories about men being cheaters, and most of them were married with children. Kobe, Jude, Tiger, Hugh, Eddie… Kristen didn’t ass rape anyone or illegally pay someone for sex. She got caught up with the director/actress affair fantasy. I hope that all the people sending her death threats on twitter will realize that what Kristen did is a feminist act! Women can be sexual predators too! This is progress Munch!
I think Munch totally has what it takes to one day, two-time guys
