Look, if you record and throw a sad ballad about how you did not know that your friend, friend Harvey Weinstein, was also an authoritative creature who harassed and sexually assaulted numerous women over a period of decades, you must accept to open up to some criticism. And if the song is called "I Should See Known" and includes the tortured lyrics: "We were friends, we were friends / we talked for hours on end / about their latest story / how the deal was fame and glory / all the girls who were affectionate / cared for each one of their whims / nothing they could lose / all they had to do was choose ", a completely reasonable reaction to that song would be: What the fuck?
And if you, the man who wrote and recorded that song and then He released it to the general public.If he were also the owner of a massive sports conglomerate with his own public sexual harassment agreement and a huge 11.6 million dollars in the not too distant past, he would have to be a real fool to think that no one would call his attention to music. -Flagelation as, at least, hypocritical moans.
The moaning hypocrite and the absolute drug in question here is the owner of the New York Knicks and CEO of Madison Square Garden, James Dolan, who launched "I should have known" in August. WFAN anchor Maggie Gray called Dolan both for the tone of her song and for the fact that her company filed a lawsuit and subsequently settled for Anucha Browne Sanders, a former MSG executive who was fired after she He talked about the sexual advances of former Knicks coach Isiah Thomas. (Later, Dolan put Thomas in charge of the New York Liberty, the WNBA team he owns.) Due to Gray's inaccurate but inaccurate comments, Dolan has banned anyone related to his business, including the players from the Knicks and the Rangers, to appear in any Entercom. radio stations owned, including WFAN. This is what Gray said in August, through the New York Post:
"I can not believe James Dolan thinks we're so stupid," Gray said. "I can not believe it's been 11 years, 11 years, how long has it been since the case of Anucha Browne Sanders? Forgive me ?! Someone who can not even understand or admit what happened in their own building now has some BS A song about how I should have known about Harvey Weinstein?
"What the hell was going on in your own building? How about a case of sexual harassment you had to solve for $ 11.6 million against The Garden? Give me a break, James Dolan. You're so hypocritical."
"You're a piece of vile garbage," Gray said of Dolan, 63. "You let Isiah Thomas call this woman the word b so many times that she sued your ass and won! And then what did you do? In 2015, you brought Isiah Thomas back to the building to execute the Freedom of the WNBA. You are a human incarnation of an online troll. The people on Twitter could not even think of something so stupid …
"I may never go back into The Garden, even with a press pass, after this, and I do not give a shit, I'd rather not go into that building that is owned by this hypocrite and this disgusting and disgusting human. You should have known, you knew, I forgot for 30 seconds how shameful James Dolan is, never again, take your stupid song and everything you represent, and push it into your colossal butt, I'm done with the Knicks. "
Apparently, Dolan, 63, has been thinking about the few minutes of sports radio at noon for months, waiting for the right moment to get his revenge extremely insignificant. the Submit wrote:
According to the officials involved in the decision, Dolan MSG ordered all of its companies across the country to shut down the work with Entercom and banned Knicks and Rangers players, as well as broadcasters and staff. MSG, participate in the station.
Although Gray apologized for his insults last week, he did not apologize for the content of what he said. People in general do not apologize for saying true things. Petty-ass Dolan, however, was out by blood. MSG spokeswoman Kim Kerns told the Submit:
"Entercom issued a diatribe full of hatred towards MSG, its employees and its Executive President in August of this year, and they chose not to take any action to remedy this until the beginning of this season, only after learning that they would not receive special access. to the players and coaches, they chose to offer a sincere apology, we do not wish them ill will, however, we refuse to maintain a commercial relationship, we will continue to have exclusive access to the Entercom league. "
That Dolan has cultivated this little resentment for months instead of letting it go (or listening to what Gray had to say) is a perfect and perfectly ridiculous embodiment of how people with rights and with adult wealth process the world.
