i was talking to someone about “the devil’s wear prada” the other day.
meryl streep portrayed miranda priestly so iconically.
my friend said:
“I loved the movie and hate it at the same time.
The movie portrays everything wrong with corporate America.”
…and thats when i was slapped into reality.
when i sat down and really thought about it…
That movie was pretty fucked up.
…especially and allegedly being based on a real person.
miranda went from iconic to toxic in 2022.
even though these scenes have some good copypasta,
and gays love a dominant diva with good drags,
it was actually really abusive:
I have witnessed people,
not even just white vixens,
running past my desk in tears because their boss “read” them.
I said I would never cry at a job until I cried at my last job.
I’ll never forget a gay male version of “Miranda Priestly” treating his older assistant like trash.
He made her come into work during a snow day,
during a huge snowstorm,
because he wanted her to be in the office.
He wasn’t in the office but he demanded her to be.
She cried the next day when she told us.
i remember telling star fox how i hated andy leaving miranda in the end.
we couldn’t fathom why she would do this:
i was likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee:
“SHE LEFT THAT OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME!!!
YEAH NO ONE WOULD EVER BE THEM!!!
WHAT A DUMB BITCH ALL IN HER FEELINGS AND SHIT!!!
i fully get why she left.
her sanity meant much more.
not only that,
you see how fast the other assistant was replaced?
that would have been andy’s fate later on down the road.
I have seen some loyal workers be replaced without no question.
so even though miranda is still fly and i love her confidence,
she was still a raging cunt who needed to get laid 10 times a week.
people never understand situations until they experience them.
lowkey: the stories i have about working in corporate america,
the abuse i’ve seen,
the abuse i’ve taken…
