Goddamnit I love Japan.
You know I’ve seen this photo many times before I decided to reblog it yesterday, because I had forgotten yesterday that I always had a reason for not reblogging it (which I’m going to FURIOUSLY point out in a moment). But I was having harsh Dan feels yesterday and it was relevant so, I reblogged it. Last night after I’d gone to bed, I was thinking about that dumbass anon and this photo, and then I realized something: I could remember everyone else’s tag, but not Garrett’s. And then I realized that THAT was why I’d never reblogged it before….
Here’s the original photo. Notice anything missing when compared with the photo above?
If you can’t figure it out, let me break it down for you: In picture 1, Garrett Morris is nowhere to be found. And Garrett isn’t just cropped out. I mean to crop a photo it takes less than a second; it’s practically effortless, especially because he’s on the end so you can just use the rectangle tool. BUT NO. Garrett wasn’t even cropped out. He was ERASED out. Someone actually took the time to carefully erase Garrett from the photo, because in the original, his head is resting on Jane’s shoulder. SOME FUCKING ASSHOLE WHO I’D HAVE LOVED TO CALL MY FRIEND FOR ALSO REFERRING TO DAN AS THE LOVE OF THEIR LIFE FUCKING TOOK THEIR TIME TO ERASE GARRETT FROM THIS. Why? What’s wrong with Garrett? There’s nothing you could think of to call him? Not something like “voice of an angel” in regards to the incredible singing he’d done on multiple occasions? I mean….Garrett Morris was with the show frOM DAY ONE. He was on there longer than Bill Murray was, yet you didn’t crop out Bill. And how about Laraine Newman? Laraine is almost always forgotten about as well, but you remembered HER.
Can we please discuss how TERRIBLY fucked up this is? This is just like fucking Ghostbusters when everyone decides to conveniently forget about Zeddemore, AKA the Ghostbuster who SAVED THE LIVES of the two most important Ghostbusters FROM BURNING ALIVE IN A CHEMICAL FIRE.
SO. Instead of bitching about how it’s harsh to call John Belushi a sexist, HOW ABOUT WE ADDRESS THE FACT THAT GARRETT MORRIS ISN’T EVEN ON HERE?
