PRIVILEGE

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp personifies the hypocrisy and callousness of the rich. Posing as the perpetual hipster, Depp flew his Yorkshire terriers to Australia without going through the required quarantine procedures. In other words, he ignored Australian law. I am sure this will fall to some Depp minion, but my point remains that those with extreme wealth and celebrity do not really care about anyone else but their own kind. Not far from this posh pooch dispute, Burmese refugees are stranded off Thailand in boats. The simple fact that the Depp debacle rates coverage in international news alongside the plight of the impoverished says something terribly troubling about our human species.
