HBO Show "Entourage" Sanctions Domestic Violence and Murder
As Susan Murphy Milano points out in her MurphyMilano Journal today, yes, this is a fictional television show. However, as we've seen in the past, so many viewers are adversly affected by what they watch on popular television. Not that we should censor, but could we at least have a little more class and decency back in our "entertainment?"
One comment left on the site is right when she says the domestic violence community should be outraged, especially coming up close to Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
I love this show and have a times on to tape because I work nights. Ari Golds character is a work hard play hard guy. In his world yea it would be nothing for him to wipe out his wife. Lots of men living in California with high powered jobs on wife #2,3,4 have thought the same thing. To put it out there though a bad vibe or the wrong message. In the real world men are killing the kids and wives over financial matters. The violence community should be outraged along with the enterainment media folks.
Every day there are several accounts in the news of men (and sometimes women) assassinating not only their spouse, but their children, too. Some say it's the economy, others feel differently, but no matter what, we are losing whole families to violence that has gotten out of hand.
To watch someone on a popular show have such a flippant attitude, and to know that many in real life do, towards life and especially the life of someone they vowed to love and honor, is more than tasteless, it's just fueling the fire.
