Jules’ Undersea Lodge is an American hotel located in Key Largo, Florida and is the only underwater hotel in the United States. It is 30 feet (9 m) deep on the ocean floor and guests have to scuba dive to get to their rooms. The hotel is located at the bottom of the Emerald Lagoon and was opened in 1986. The hotel’s name comes from the novelist Jules Verne, author of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Scuba certification is required for entrance as the front door is located 21 feet (6.4 m) under water.

They talked about this place at length on an awesome episode of Planet Money.

We know why.

Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.

Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.

Michael Fassbender

Matthew Fox

John Lennon

Paul McCartney

Ringo too I’m pretty sure

Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Axl Rose

Vince Neil

Sean Penn

Charlie Sheen

Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend

Stephen Segal

Tommy Lee

Ozzy Osbourne

Mickey Rourke

Bill Murray

Gary Busey

Tom Sizemore

Christian Slater

James Caan

Josh Brolin

Edward Furlong

I could go on.

The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them.  The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it.  So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.

Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage. 

If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.

Adding more to the list:

Gary Oldman - hit ex-wife Donya Fiorentino repeatedly about the face with a telephone receiver in front of their two children.

Sean Connery - thinks an openhanded slap is justified if a woman is a “bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded.”

Josh Brolin - was arrested for abusing Diane Lane in 2004.

Glen Campbell - beat Tanya Tucker and on one occasion knocked her teeth out. Glen actually received a tribute at the 2012 Grammy Awards—the same year that Chris Brown received so much vitriol for performing.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers - was arrested in 2005 after he was accused of beating up his teenage girlfriend and throwing a cellphone at her. The 27-year-old actor later made a counter allegation that the 18-year-old girlfriend had assaulted him. The warring couple were both questioned at a London police station before being released on bail. He was also verbally abusive and threatening to a woman who tried to help him up off the floor during one of his drunken airport episodes. “Don’t you know who I am?” Yes dear, you’re the King of fucking England.

Harry Morgan - best known for his role as Col. Sherman Potter in the television series “MASH,” was accused in July 1996 of beating his wife.

Sean Bean - has been arrested for harassing an ex girlfriend and has been reported for domestic assault.

Tommy Lee -pleaded no contest in April 1998 to a felony charge of spousal battery against his wife, former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson. Lee received a three-year suspended prison sentence, was required to spend 180 days in jail and ordered to pay a total of $6,200 to a shelter for battered women. Anderson, who filed for divorce shortly after the incident, reportedly had hoped her husband would be spared jail time.

Roman Polanski - raped of a 13-year-old girl before fleeing the country.

Eminem - Wrote the song “Kim” about abusing his wife.

Here’s the lyrics: 

  • Kim: “Baby you’re so precious/Daddy’s so proud of you/Sit down bitch/If you move again I’ll beat the shit out of you”
  • Kim: “There’s a four year old boy lyin’ dead with a slit throat/In your living room, ha-ha/What you think I’m kiddin’ you?/You loved him didn’t you?”
  • Kim: “[sound of his wife choking] NOW BLEED! BITCH BLEED!/BLEED! BITCH BLEED! BLEED!”
  • Wrote a song, “‘97 Bonnie and Clyde,” about murdering his wife and disposing of his body in the presence of his child
  • '97 Bonnie and Clyde: “Oh where’s mama? She’s takin a little nap in the trunk/Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk”
  • '97 Bonnie and Clyde: “And mama said she wants to show how far she can float/And don’t worry about that little boo-boo on her throat/It’s just a little scratch - it don’t hurt, her was eatin/dinner while you were sweepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt”
  • '97 Bonnie and Clyde: “Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)/We’ll tie it to her footsie then we’ll roll her off the dock”

Made fun of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s domestic abuse case in “The Real Slim Shady”

Elvis Presley - According to "Elvis Presley. The Man. The Life. The Legend." written by Pamela Keogh. Elvis was immensely abusive towards Priscilla. He was stationed overseas during WWII where they met. He often lied to her parents to get her to spend the night. He would have sex with her, and would give her amphetamines. (The amphetamines were distributed by the Army to help him sleep, and he gave them to everybody.) When the war ended and he went home, he forced her to come with him. She was expected to sit at home while he had affairs. He didn’t even want to marry her, it was simply a publicity stunt. Elvis was immensely controlling. He made Priscilla dress the way he wanted (and would yell at and insult her when she wore something that he didn’t approve of), do her hair the way he wanted, and wear as much make up as he wanted her to. 

Mel Gibsonassaulted, struck with his fist and choked, his ex girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva while she was still holding her baby. He then went on towards the pool, screaming and yelling and then told Oksana to get the ‘fuck’ out, and went to get his gun. 


I haven’t fact checked all of these but since I know many of them to be true, the “wtf” remains.

Typical racist rhetoric:

The “oh, but you’re not like the rest of them” line.

Never forget

His fucking face in the third pic is like every white boy I’ve ever seen try to explain away his racist/sexist/homophobic comment.

When it’s actually the opposite. English settlers were the savages. Native Americans had running irrigation systems! They had beautiful and intricate cities and homes and communities. They were clean, and respectful of the environment, and even used a form of breath sweeteners! But no. You won’t learn any of that in American history classes. You won’t learn about the complete and utter genocide of a nation of people who originally inhabited this land. Nope.

Savages- lyrics

-Part 1- 
[Ratcliffe] 
What can you expect 
From filthy little heathens? 
Their whole disgusting race is like a curse 
Their skin’s a hellish red 
They’re only good when dead 
They’re vermin, as I said 
And worse 

[English Settlers] 
They’re savages! Savages! 

[Ratcliffe] 
Barely even human 

[English Settlers] 
Savages! Savages! 

[Ratcliffe] 
Drive them from our shore! 
They’re not like you and me 
Which means they must be evil 
We must sound the drums of war! 

[Ratcliffe+English Settlers] 
They’re savages! Savages! 
Dirty redskin devils! 
Now we sound the drums of war! 

[Powhatan] 
This is what we feared 
The paleface is a demon 
The only thing they feel at all is greed 

[Kekata] 
Beneath that milky hide 
There’s emptiness inside 

[Native American] 
I wonder if they even bleed 

[Native Americans] 
They’re savages! Savages! 
Barely even human 
Savages! Savages! 

[Powhatan] 
Killers at the core 

[Kekata] 
They’re different from us 
Which means they can’t be trusted 

[Powhatan] 
We must sound the drums of war 

[Native Americans] 
They’re savages! Savages! 
First we deal with this one 
Then we sound the drums of war 

[English Settlers] 
Savages! Savages! 

[Ben] 
Let’s go kill a few, men! 

[Native Americans] 
Savages! Savages! 

[Ratcliffe] 
Now it’s up to you, men! 

[All] 
Savages! Savages! 
Barely even human! 
Now we sound the drums of war! 

-Part 2- 
[Pocahontas] 
Is there nothing I can do? 
Will this really be the end? 
Is it only death that waits 
Just around the riverbend? 

[Ratcliffe] 
This will be the day … 
(Let’s go men!) 

[Powhatan] 
This will be the morning … 
(Bring out the prisoner) 

[English Settlers and Native Americans] 
We will see them dying in the dust 

[Pocahontas] 
I don’t know what I can do 
Still, I know I’ve got to try 

[English Settlers] 
Now we make ‘em pay 

[Pocahontas] 
Eagle, help my feet to fly 

[Native Americans] 
Now without a warning … 

[Pocahontas] 
Mountain, help my heart be great 

[English Settlers and Native Americans] 
Now we leave ‘em blood and bone and rust 

[Pocahontas] 
Spirits of the earth and sky … 

[English Settlers and Native Americans] 
It’s them or us 

[Pocahontas] 
Please don’t let it be to late … 

[English Settlers and Native Americans] 
They’re just a bunch of 
Filthy, stinking 

[English Settlers] 
Savages! 

[Native Americans] 
Savages! 

[English Settlers] 
Demons! 

[Native Americans] 
Devils! 

[Ratcliffe] 
Kill them! 

[Native Americans] 
Savages! 

[English Settlers] 
Savages! 

[Ratcliffe+English Settlers] 
What are we waiting for? 

[All] 
Destroy their evil race 
Until there’s not a trace left 

[Pocahontas] 
How loud are the drums of war 

[English Settlers and Native Americans] 
We will sound the drums of war 
(Savages! Savages!) 
Now, we sound the drums of war 
(Savages! Savages!) 

[Ratcliffe] 
Now we see what comes 
Of trying to be chums 

[Native Americans] 
Now we sound the drums … of … war! 

[English Settlers] 
Of course it means the drums … of … war! 

[Pocahontas] 
Is the death of all I love 
Carried in the drumming of war?

This basically says both parties had a hand in the racism

Wow. Wooooow. I really hope I misinterpreted your post. Because if it’s saying what I think it does… wow. Just when I thought people on tumblr couldn’t get any worse…

Not only did you paste way too much text onto my post with annoying formatting… you actually are using Disney lyrics as a source to express your hilariously misinformed and completely shitty opinion that Native Americans and white settlers BOTH had a hand in the racism.

Wow. I’m truly amazed rn.

Since the entire story of Pocahontas was made up by John Smith to impress his white friends, your argument is invalid abbydevil15.

"The truth of the matter is that the first time John Smith told the story about this rescue was 17 years after it happened, and it was but one of three reported by the pretentious Smith that he was saved from death by a prominent woman.

Yet in an account Smith wrote after his winter stay with Powhatan’s people, he never mentioned such an incident. In fact, the starving adventurer reported he had been kept comfortable and treated in a friendly fashion as an honored guest of Powhatan and Powhatan’s brothers. Most scholars think the “Pocahontas incident” would have been highly unlikely, especially since it was part of a longer account used as justification to wage war on Powhatan’s Nation.

Euro-Americans must ask themselves why it has been so important to elevate Smith’s fibbing to status as a national myth worthy of being recycled again by Disney. Disney even improves upon it by changing Pocahontas from a little girl into a young woman.

The true Pocahontas story has a sad ending. In 1612, at the age of 17, Pocahontas was treacherously taken prisoner by the English while she was on a social visit, and was held hostage at Jamestown for over a year.

During her captivity, a 28-year-old widower named John Rolfe took a “special interest” in the attractive young prisoner. As a condition of her release, she agreed to marry Rolfe, who the world can thank for commercializing tobacco.”

Tell me again how both parties were “savages?”

OH, and this is how the article begins:

"In 1995, Roy Disney decided to release an animated movie about a Powhatan woman known as "Pocahontas". In answer to a complaint by the Powhatan Nation, he claims the film is "responsible, accurate, and respectful."

We of the Powhatan Nation disagree. The film distorts history beyond recognition. Our offers to assist Disney with cultural and historical accuracy were rejected. Our efforts urging him to reconsider his misguided mission were spurred”
