Affected Empire Media now has an official sub-reddit!

“Stop making stupid people famous,” – It’s a phrase I have heard often when the topic of conversation turns to some pointless celebrity like Kim Kardashian. The concept of ‘celebrity’ has become so overblown that fame has now become synonymous with intelligence. The opinions of shallow celebs are now widely valued higher than that of professionals in the field. No topic is off limits for an uninformed, vacuous opinion. Numerous celebrities have donated two cents of their multi-million dollar salaries to everything from Trump to vaccinations. It is ridiculous that actors, whose job is to literally repeat someone else’s words in front of a camera, suddenly are the be all and end all of modern day political commentary.
