I personally enjoy entourage
But I’m surprised he would publicly endorse that show at the u of m
Huh? Fleck's Gopher football walks the corridor and enters the field to a Marilyn Manson song at home games.

A bunch of straight white dudes trying to sleep with hot chicks. So basically it's like celebrating the holocaust.
Lol I mean to some that is literally what they think.
So while I don’t agree with it, I don’t think I’d be tweeting about how great I think it is given the culture of the U of M and am honestly surprised there isn’t backlash

Hope there isn’t. It’s a funny show

99.9% of people in that stadium don’t know who the song is by

But you make a good point. It’s interesting Cosby show is off air but we still play Michael Jackson music

I haven't seen it. Is the show controversial?
I haven’t seen it either, but it is described as a group of NYC buddies that experience the glam life in LA. Lots of celebrity appearances. Here is the trailer, it looks good.

They are just trying to make a political message about supposed “anti-masculinity”

The show looks like it is a buddy show where they do stupid things and bail each other out of trouble. A common theme. Through in numerous celebrities and glamorous backgrounds and you have a hit.

I don’t agree that people should take heat for liking a tv show because someone else thinks the tv show is bad

But I’m honestly surprised he hasn’t. Entourage is pretty bro-ish

It's also loosely based on when Mark Walhberg and his buddies moved to LA.

I liked the show at the time, I was in my late teens/early 20s. I'm in the same relative age group as Ben, so maybe I'll give it a re-watch too.

Entourage has received TONS of criticism online. If you google "is Entourage problematic", the following show up:
  • Many TV shows wear out their welcome, but the backlash toward Entourage is particularly intense, especially because the show has stoked accusations of sexism, misogyny, and racism.
  • 'Entourage' Includes some Problematic Theses
  • Entourage Creator Blames "PC Culture" for His Show Aging
  • Entourage has Aged Even Worse Than You Expected
  • Entourage's Misogynistic Legacy "Hurts My Soul"
  • Unfortunately due to Entourage's superficial trappings, many of us overlooked the show's glaring issues. Rampant sexism, frequent homophobia and. . . and while it was easier to chock up Vince and the gang's behavior as "boys will be boys" shenanigans at the time, we're at a cultural moment where this toxic masculinity looks much worse in hindsight.

All of the major online hit piece type of things (gawker, ranker, daily beast, etc.) have found it to be very problematic.

It's literally white dudes in their 20s being friends and trying to hook with hot chicks.

For sure. That’s why I brought it up. Personally the show is funny but probably not as funny as I thought it was when I first watched it
