Did you think Tom Cruise may have over-reacted when he flipped out on the crew of the new Mission: Impossible film for not following the COVID guidelines the film is operating under? I think he was right, but a lot of people online were not on his side. I think presumably because they already (rightly) think Tom Cruise is an asshole.

Just because Tom Cruise sucks doesn’t mean he was wrong, though.

George Clooney was on Howard Stern today and he told Howard “He didn’t overreact because it is a problem. I have a friend who’s an AD on another TV show who just had the almost exact same thing happen with not quite as far out a response.”

In fact, a lot of Hollywood celebrities felt the same way as Clooney. Whoopi Goldberg said she understood Cruise’s reaction on The View and Josh Gad tweeted that Tom Cruise was right.

And yeah, Tom Cruise was right. COVID is a serious thing and we need to take it seriously. We can’t all be screwing around like Kirk Cameron and organizing a Merry Christmas super spreader event.

That’s why so many other Hollywood stars were willing to stand up for Cruise; we’re not taking this as seriously as we should and that’s why things are getting so bad right now. They’re about to get worse because everyone is going to ignore all the warnings again and travel for Christmas, including the people who are giving the warnings in a lot of cases. It’s not an ideal situation.

Tom Cruise sucks and maybe you want him to be nicer but if people would follow the rules to begin with we wouldn’t be having this discussion.
