Re: PIC S1: Nepenthe

I don’t think Gooz’s comments are offensive because they are racist or mean-spirited, although one can interpret them as such.

Well-known critics like John Simon (theater and movie critic) and Rex Reed (movie critic who really took off on Mellisa McCarthy for being fat) who are otherwise intelligent say this stuff, rationalizing it by saying fatness, ugliness , etc., are imperfections in “art.” One could just as easily criticize the show for having young male actors who affect a moody dispostion with a scruffed, manscaped beard. Whatever.

I think all of these kinds of comments are made either for shock value (they are not shocking) or because the critic has nothing better or more intelligent to say. Often, the comment is mad,p, a predictable outrage follows, and the commenter can then claim what they really are seeking: “victim” status - victim of censorship or political correctness or what have you. It is a tired game, these people play. One wonders why they still bother
