And by the way, what’s so wrong with dog collars and tattoos and dyed hair and punk clothing as it is? Who is to say that the people you are attempting to persuade to buy your product in the first place don’t have these items of clothing (or makeup) on right now and are being offended by your stupid commercial? I am not one of them, no, but I used to sort of be—and even if I’m not, I certainly don’t want to do business with a company who deems one type of person more worthy or better than another person anyway.
Don't get me started on Steve Jones, the host. He was so unintentionally rude and curt that it was lovably hilarious. I partially watched just to see who he was going to interrupt, push off the stage or slyly insult. Now that Steve is out we'll probably get a self-absorbed, preening kiss-up like Ryan Seacrest. The two dragon judges stayed and two likeable judges, Paula and Nicole, are jobless.
This is just another nail in the X-factor coffin for me.
