Meh. The chances that her or 99% of the people at that event knew any of the history in 1999 is pretty remote. Not saying the event isn't bad and all the people running it aren't complicit but you grow up where you grow up and you're told what you're told, no one was talking about decolonizing beauty pageants in 1999. I'm all for burning down America, or at the very least taxing the rich, but she isn't the problem here.
Has she had anything to say on all this? Not going to be easy to navigate her way out unless she disses the event.

She could just shift the blame to some other child millionaire actor like Rooney Mara or Rose Leslie or anyone making pop music right now. "At least my dad didn't plan a genocide in the CIA" or something.

Controversial, but I just can't be pissed off at people born into money. It doesn't seem that far away from blaming poor people for being poor.
I agree, also from looking at that article it looks like most of the people tweeting about it are white middle class hipsters.


But then, this article could just be be 5 or 6 random tweets with a few random words thrown together and the reason Ellie Kemper hasn't made a statement is because no one actually really cares.

Absolutely, and I want to tax them in a completely impersonalized way as well. We want to tax them because they're rich not because they're bad.
