Guy Removed As Official Girl Scout Spokesman After People Found Out He Used To Be In A “Homo Punk” Band
(Source) The ex-front man of a ‘homo-punk’ band has been removed as the official Girl Scouts spokesman after outraged mothers complained. Risque videos from Joshua Ackley’s band The Dead Betties led to a flurry of complaints by parents who questioned whether he was the best person to represent the Girl Scout movement. Videos of the chief press spokesman’s old band, which were referred to as ‘homo punk’ by various media outlets showed a woman being stalked and a man writhing in newspaper. Mr Ackley had been the chief representative of the Scouts for several years, and also worked as a blogger for the organization, Breitbart reported.
He has been the main port of call for everything, from Girl Scouts wanting advice to parents concerned about changes in the movement. He was also sent in to soothe concerned mothers who claimed Planned Parenthood brochures were found at girls-only UN panel hosted by the group in 2011 Although the organization denied any knowledge of the brochure, the group has come under criticism in recent years for its distribution of funds from cookie sales and alleged support for abortion, the Washington Times reported. Parents singled out two Dead Bettie videos still available on YouTube, although the band’s account has been inactive for several years. In one, scenes of a woman being stalked and then strangled are cut in with footage of Mr Ackley, who performed under the name Joshua Starr, and the band playing.In another, a man is seen seemingly touching himself inappropriately while surrounded by newspapers to the band’s raw punk sound. Conservative campaign groups have been criticizing Mr Ackley’s role in the Girl Scout’s movement for more than a year. While he will no longer have as visible a profile within the organization, and his name has been removed from the press contact page, the Girl Scouts have said that he remains working in the press department. The Girl Scouts have not yet responded to a request for a comment from Mail Online.
I don’t care about Josh Ackley’s removal from chief Girl Scout whatever the fuck he is. It’s obviously bullshit to fire a guy for a band he was in 20 years ago. He didn’t commit a crime. He didn’t hurt anyone. He just made awful music videos where he stalked and strangled chicks and had a guy jerk off with a bunch of newspapers. There are far worse skeletons in many people’s closets.
What I do care about though is Josh Ackley having quite possibly the weirdest resume of all time. I mean I don’t know about everyone else but most people I know have basically the exact same resume. 4 year college and GPA no one gives a fuck about, meaningless entry level job out of college, one step above that in your mid 20′s, a few hobbies and a charity you give your time to. You look at 99.9% of the resumes in this world and they’ll look basically identical. But Josh Ackley, that guy is about to have some interesting interview conversations*. Homo Punk band to Chief Officer of a bunch of little girls that go door to door selling cookies. What a tremendous jump that was. What do you even say in an interview like that? Oh my strengths are strangling woman in fake punk videos and also inspiring little girls to be the best they can be at soliciting money from strangers? Josh Ackley better get his elevator pitch down pat because he is in for some interesting conversations.
I fundamentally don’t understand how this guy is not fat. I would have to assume there are cookies everywhere at Girl Scout Headquarters right? Has anyone ever seen a box of girl scout cookies and not eaten the entire thing immediately? If you put 1 million dollars and a box of Tagalongs on a table in front of me and said if I don’t touch a single cookie in the next 24 hours I would get the money, I honestly think I would fail.
*Just the thought of sitting in a job interview puts chills down my spine. Nothing worse.
