Irrelevant People

We watch the news, see the entertainment award shows, listen to interviews and hear politician, entertainers, news networks spew their opinions.

How many of those individual are irrelevant in your opinion?

Example: Barbra Streisand: I could careless about anything she comments on.
Colin Kaepernick: Clueless individual meaningless person and opinions.

People on TV or social media? Almost all of them.

Except for O, O, O, O'Reilley. I miss him.

If these people were irrelevant, you would not need to post about them. They clearly have you rattled.

Exactly.

One of the definitions of relevant is- "appropriate to the current time, period, or circumstances; of contemporary interest." While it may be a sign of society's decay, the people being mentioned are all of "contemporary interest."

Yep. People often mix up "I don't agree with this person and wish they would not tell the world what they think," with irrelevant.

There are different levels of interest to this "relevance", I think.

I'm guessing that the OP was referring to hyped people that create a bit of a bluster socially or culturally but have zero impact upon the way he lives his day-to-day life or forms his opinions on larger matters.


But I think you knew that already. Am I giving you too much credit ?

I could not care any less about all those self-indulgent narcissists: I don't do Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc....... never have; never will.

He was impacted enough to take the time out if his day to create a thread on a message board stating how irrelevant he thinks they are.

Irrelevant to me, or irrelevant to society as a whole? If it's to me - any talking head on cable news shows ; Stephen A Smith, Colin Cowherd, and Skip Bayless; evangelicals on television; Al Sharpton; posters on anonymous chat boards who deliberately spew untruths.

Instagram influencers
YouTubers

Unfortunately, these are the new ways to get "discovered." Whether it's for singing, acting, etc. more and more people are coming from social media platforms and becoming stars
