Does Angelina Jolie's passive-aggressive tweet re the Paris attacks tick you off, too?


As the world reacts in horror, sadness and anger over the Paris attacks, Jolie tweeted, "Whilst everyone talks about #Paris no one mentions the #ISIS attack in #Lebanon yesterday. I pray for both countries." So . . . what? As an American, am I supposed to feel bad about feeling bad for the attack on an iconic city and a long-time ally with whom we share much culture? Yeah, shame on me "whilst" Jolie gets her more inclusive grief just right.

    " I think that it's much easier for us in the west to relate to the Paris attacks because it's a popular tourist destination."

    - Absolutely!

    Paris is known for good food, romance, fashion, & culture. Most Americans have no interest in Lebanon.

    Well said. To intimate that the U.S.A. does not care about the Lebanese people is to try to deny the fact that American aid dollars going there are incredible.

    I felt she was trying to shame those who were upset by the Paris Attacks for feeling extreme emotion when they didn't feel that way about the attacks in Lebanon. Is feeling more upset about Paris racist?
