Billy Bob Thornton Slams Cupcake Wars, Competitive Nature of Reality TV

by at . Comments

Ever wonder what Billy Bob Thornton thinks of Cupcake Wars?

No? Well, listen up anyway! The actor makes some profound points in the following video.

Taken from his appearance on Oprah's Master Class Sunday, the Fargo Season 1 star uses reality television to explain his problem with humanity in general these days.

“We're living in a time that's just become judgmental and everybody wants to see failure," says the ex-husband of Angeline Jolie. "They want to see people knocked off the hill.

"You can't have a television show without a competition because they want to see who cries this week and who goes downhill, who gets kicked out."

Does Thornton think we need a series about cupcake recipes? No.

But, okay, fine, great. You wanna air one? No problem. HOWEVER...

"Does it have to be a f-cking competition? Do you have to have cupcake wars? And I'm sure people who have been in war kind of take offense to that because seriously, it's not that goddamn dangerous to make a cupcake."

The 58-year old makes some salient points, don't you think?

I guess I'm just really ready for people to kind of settle down and know each other again and root for each other as opposed to look for the faults in each other," he concludes, adding:

"There's a lot of great stuff in life from the top to the bottom and from the left to the right. Life is magical and I guess my thing is I wish that people wanted that magic."

We wonder what Thornton thinks of the following reality television shows:


Really? After his tantrums over Billy Bob the rockstar, flipping out if hes called an actor, some fool hired him and hes running his mouth like he rules TV. He is trash. Hind sight being 20/20, look at his creepy marriage to Jolie? To this day she is judged for that disgusting behavior. Look at her today, he is still a creep. I feel bad for judging her so harshly, no wonder she over compensates so much. I don't even remember how old she was, get this vile trash off TV. FX and he things he is all that. Its not even FOX though many think it is, lol. Headline a CBS show and then boast.
