Nick Laparra — Action Is The The Most Important Thing, Not Awareness

Nick Laparra — Action Is The The Most Important Thing, Not Awareness

Let's talk about the Oscars. Many actors and artists used their stage time to share their thoughts on what is happening in society and in politics.

Let's talk about the Oscars. Many actors and artists used their stage time to share their thoughts on what is happening in society and in politics. Which, for the record, I’m 100% OK with. In fact, I applaud it! Entertainers throughout history have used their art form and platform to speak out against injustices happening around them. The notion that athletes should stick to playing sports or that actor should stick to acting or that musicians should stick to music and not speak up is ludicrous. It’s bullshit.


So, let's talk about Joaquin Phoenix. Let's talk about Jane Fonda. Let's talk about awareness and activism. Let's talk about cancel culture.
