Yes. Frat movies staring guys like Seth Rogan drove the @ss to kill 6 people.In short, racist, sexist white guys caused this by putting out crappy T&A flicks.
Indeed, as important as it is to understand Rodger’s actions within the context of the mental illness he clearly suffered, it’s just as clear that his delusions were inflated, if not created, by the entertainment industry he grew up in.
How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like “Neighbors” and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of “sex and fun and pleasure”? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, “It’s not fair”?
There was a piece a bit back about someone complaining that the TV show 'Friends' gave an unrealistic view of life. If this piece of fishwrap is true, the the current generation cannot differentiate between reality and television. We are doomed as a nation.
