Man fired for making the OK sign

Post by rclark » 4 months ago

This guy dressed up as a cartoon character for Disney World. This is in Orlando Florida in March,
when the temperatures get extremely hot.

He is an actor who works for Disney, and dressed up as Gru, who is a cartoon movie
villian for young kids. He is the tall guy in the background. You can see him taking a photo.

I've actually watch Despicable me with my kids, when they were younger. Gru is a major bad guy,
but ends up adopting an orphan.

Personally I think the guy might of had a hard time moving in a full body costume.

What do other people think?

Didn't Brenton Tarrent (Christchurch attacker) make this sign too, or something similar?

You're right. The man from New Zealand did make that sign. I never knew that was a white power sign.

Even Mashable acknowledge the madness of this. Fox News is also just as ridiculous:

“It’s more than the "OK" sign,” Richard Zinger said. “A lot of people don’t understand what that sign means.” They just end it at that.

If a lot of people don't understand what it apparently "means", then maybe people don't understand what it means when they do a universally accepted hand sign? Thumbs up will be next, and I don't even mean that sarcastically, if 4chan trolls managed to twist it a certain way at a pivotal time, the mainstream media would do the rest.

To explain this, Trump does this mannerism when he punctuates:

And 4chan trolls pushed it as this, and reported to the mainstream media:

Dog whistling to the white supremacists, and everyone bought it, fantastic.

Something more recent is this, the new "it's okay to be white":

Which is a statement when presented can't be argued by the left, but the connotations that are implied by the words make an SJW's head spin out of control, and to me it's peak genius, out of any of the various stunts pulled by internet trolls.

It pulls together so many disjointed and directly conflicting thoughts.

People can and will use their judgement to infer what people mean. It's similar to how the same word can have a different meaning in different contexts. The word "date" for example can refer to a fruit, a day on the calendar, a romantic gathering, etc. The same applies to hand gestures.

We can't speak to the details of the Disney guy, obviously, but the people who knew him used their judgment.

I had a hair transplant operation with the clinic of Dr. Emrah Cinik in Istanbul, with 2750 grafts being mostly placed in the front. It was a success both for general aesthetics and general well-being, and I encourage others to do the same.

This is just invaluable info tnx Afro I'll keep it in mind.

How the fuck you made such a connection is mind boggling, in genius ways that a simpleton like me could never understand. I can and will infer that your posts are fucking retarded.

I never even knew that was a sign for white power until someone pointed that
out to me. This has definitely been an eye opener for me (the guy from New
Zealand).
