Neighbors 2: not a birthday post  
So I don't really want to spend a lot of time on this and I *really* hate giving this guy any attention (whatever his protestations, I think he loves it). But I feel like trying to preempt y'all clicking on the blinds that this surely will inspire.

A dumbass extra got fired. Why did the story get to TMZ even? Did the guy send it to them or did one of his friends in support of him? That's my best guess. Unfortunately if they were trying to make him look better, it just doesn't work. I don't think he was fired for one picture of fake weed (which, btw, was posted more than 3 weeks ago) or questioning Zac's sobriety. No, I think he was fired because he posted a lot of pics/set info and, frankly, his behavior in general was more attention-whore/fanboy than professional. You just don't do latter and especially don't do the former, especially when you have signed a non-disclosure agreement (which is standard for extras on sets).

Of course, the fucked up part of it is that this leads to TMZ making this about questioning Zac's sobriety. That's what pisses me off. Like when Zac does something questionable or fucks up, fine. I have said so many times over the past few years, Zac's made his bed and he's got to lie in it. And, of course, I continue to worry/hope that he maintains sobriety, as I think most people who care about him do. But this is just horseshit and caused by some other idiot doing something wrong, then trying to make 15 minutes or repair his rep off of it.

And I have no doubt that blind sites will use it to make up blinds. So this is the point of this: don't click on those stories. That could be your birthday present to Zac. TO NOT CLICK OR (RE)TWEET THIS GARBAGE. There, I kind of made it a birthday post, despite the title. Bottom line: don't give them hits ever (they'll only write more if you do because clicks make them money), but especially don't reward the many asshole idiots behind this particular set.

i don't know what jared does. i don't have any experience with 'report this user' but from my experience, the comment sections on jj are trash. he's fine with people saying whatever and stirring shit up because it means engagement which generates advertising revenue.

people are insulting each other and calling others names and saying how ugly they are, why would jared be ok with bullying of others and etc?
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on October 18th, 2015 06:55 pm (UTC)
i told you, it makes him money. says a lot about him, doesn't it? imo, if you are unhappy with people there, just don't comment there or, at least, don't reply to them, just ignore it.

kinda hard when people call you ugly and god awful names for no reason,

i also read this, who is this guy your talking about? tmz site? the actually extra who got fired or both?
Beejeezbee on October 18th, 2015 06:47 pm (UTC)
I kept thinking for weeks why nobody fired the guy yet. He has been violating his NDA since the beginning of filming. And the day he got sacked, he actually posted 2 pics from set which both crossed the line - one from the chairs in video village and one from extra payment forms from the production office (which that idiot also proudly tagged). He is also the person who put the "info" into the world that Selena was having a big role and was filming 1-2 months. He was trying to make himself look important by talking about set stuff permanently.

Anyway... it's annoying as fuck for this to make TMZ and even worse that they decided to make it about Zac's sobriety.

Thank you for this post, Cady. I've seen people defending this moron and all it boils down to is this: Hollywood/studios don't screw around when it comes to non-disclosure agreements. You violate it, you get fired. Period. I also can't help but wonder if it was this idiot or his "sister" feeding all the "on-set stories" to some fans via Twitter before the account was deleted.

It amazes me how many people believe blinds without questioning some of the info in them. So many of them (granted not all) could be disproven as BS if they would just THINK about it for a second.
laurenlipkinlip on October 18th, 2015 06:53 pm (UTC)
why do you always the need to shade fans on here without saying there name. i think i know who your talking about and im not gonna say it but there is no need to do that
The Writers Den: Cute Zacmusewriter on October 18th, 2015 07:03 pm (UTC)
For the record, I wasn't shading anyone. Just stating a fact. This fanbase (or should I say some fans) have a tendency to always believe the worst when it comes to Zac. Sometimes it's warranted, 99.9% of the time it's not.

And so we're clear, even if I really wanted to shade someone I have enough common sense and respect not to use their name.
laurenlipkinlip on October 18th, 2015 07:04 pm (UTC)
i know who your talking about and etc, im not that stupid. you apparently seem to have an issue with me over the years and not everyone in the fanbase is this dramatic and etc, its actually the opposite it seems.

Ok, that's enough of this thread for me today, lol.

musewriter was making an observation about fans online and it is one I agree with. Many people will believe anything they read online, good or bad. And it isn't just one person or in one fandom. It happens so much that there is a State Farm commercial about it, lol.

I understand you feel targeted but I don't believe she was trying to target you, she was encouraging everyone to think logically about sources.

like i love people who violate NDAs so i have set pics and know what's up, but you play with fire, you might get burnt. make a mistake? own it and move on. don't fucking sell out and hurt a guy who is nice enough to buy ice cream, coffee, etc. for all the set people as thank yous for hard work.
laurenlipkinlip on October 18th, 2015 07:09 pm (UTC)
i get that it's fake weed tho, nic who is the director of the movie posts fake weed but he's the director, how tmz word the article sounded like if u question or dare zac and his soberness your done, so what else was this guy posting where he didnt get canned weeks ago?
The Writers Den: Cute Zacmusewriter on October 18th, 2015 07:12 pm (UTC)
I agree. If people didn't violate NDA's we wouldn't have most of the stuff we do get. But doing it multiple times (and on such a public venue like Instagram) is bound to burn you. People must be really dense not to realize the studio/production usually monitors social media lol.

I just hate people who always look try to make themselves out to be superior. This idiot, that pap from Atlanta who tweets about all the celebs he sees and then deletes them), anyone who sells a story to TMZ. You get my point.

that papz hates zac b/c he doesn't want to play the game. i remember the one(s) from vancouver who hated zac because he'd walk/run backwards so the guy couldn't get shots. lol.

Who is the guy that was doing this? I'm a little bit curious
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on October 21st, 2015 03:32 am (UTC)
just a dumbass, i really don't want people to go find him or give him attention (positive or negative). but he's posted pics in costume and such on a lot of atlanta sets. i'm surprised he hasn't been kicked off of more projects though it does seem like maybe some agencies just refuse to use him (e.g. the one that did extras for dirty grandpa).
