7. George Clooney Calls His Darfur Involvement ‘Greatest Failure of My Life’
George Clooney, best known for being an arrogant tool, is having a hard time dealing with his failure to end the genocide in Darfur. Seriously, he showed up at fundraisers, met with politicians, and traveled to Africa, all the while exuding his Awesome Clooneyness from every magnificent pore. And yet, the region remains a war torn hellhole. Where did he go wrong?
It would almost feel wrong to knock a guy who at least tries to use his celebrity to help people, but due to his phenomenal arrogance, we’re not losing any sleep. His Majesty shared his delusions of humanitarian grandeur in an interview with The Sun earlier this month:
George says: “I’ve been honoured to be able to lend my celebrity to help wherever I can, especially on behalf of the United Nations.
“But in the case of Darfur it’s been the greatest failure of my life.
“With other people, we’ve been able to get a lot of attention focused on the terrible situation there and nothing has changed. It’s very frustrating.”
Poor guy. We didn’t realize the situation in Sudan was all about him. If only he’d taken a little more time off between films to tell the ignorant masses about the violence and devastation. If only. Hopefully the leftist policies he supports will finally put an end to the genocide so he can sleep at night. But probably not – if his letter writing campaigns and op-eds didn’t end the civil war, what could?
