Self-Doubt’s Rant

So I’ve been hearing a lot about this guy living in Los Angeles. This kid named Edward Hong who says he wants to be an actor and a social justice activist. In fact, that’s how he introduces himself to almost every new person he meets.

He described himself as an actor and social justice activist and I hear he says this with a self-important smug look on his face that makes you sick to your stomach and throw up your Big Mac burger dinner into his face.

He wants to be an actor? He wants to be a social justice ACTIVIST? That’s hilarious. Just knowing what he looks like, he’s another talentless Asian kid with mediocre looks. I mean, have you seen this guy? This guy’s pretty fucking ugly.

What I do know about this little shithead is that he talks a LOT. He spends all of his time on Facebook spouting off his activisty views, and making himself look all self-righteous with his progressive perspectives that don’t mean absolute shit. Yet somehow he has this knack for pissing off his own Asian community and making his own people dislike him. They call him unstable and a punk-ass and I don’t blame them, he doesn’t know the difference between his face from his own ass. So here’s something I want to say to this Edward Hong:

SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY.
STOP FUCKING COMPLAINING.
YOU’RE NOT THAT IMPORTANT.
YOU’RE GETTING ON ALL OUR NERVES.

Jesus Fucking Christ.

But here’s the part that’s just unbelievable.

He says he came to Los Angeles to pursue these paths because of, wait for it, the VA Tech shooting. Apparently it changed his life around because he somehow related to the Korean shooter.

Hold on one second.

Are you kidding me? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

This little punk became an activist because of some Asian guy who killed 32 people? This motherfucker thinks he can change the world just because he had some severe daddy and racial issues that prompted him to feel connected with the shooter and had a grand self-discovery journey as a result? That’s some sick fucked up shit.

So he was made fun of because he’s Asian. So he had daddy issues where his daddy beat him up. Who the fuck cares? We all got made fun of when we were kids. We all got beat up by our daddies. Grow the fuck up and deal with it. But don’t deal with it by declaring that you’re a holier-than-thou activist and trying to spread your message of One Love to people who don’t give a shit about you.

Yet what absolutely amazes me is that I think this kid is aware about all the shit people are saying about him. He knows this and yet he continues to fight. A 23 year old Asian kid who has an extraordinary amount of energy to doing what he believes is the right thing. He has better things to spend his energy on, rather than his own Asian community who he knows don’t like him that much but yet he continues to support them anyway.

What a fucking dumbass.

I admire his spirit, though.

    It was good meeting you the other night. You’ve got one Hell of an inner critic reverbing through your work, but then I guess you’re keeping honest (often brutally so). I’m gonna parrot Edren in saying it’s a good start. Keep it up.
