(Source) — So I apologize in advance if this stirs the pot more but I was reading the comments and really wanted to weigh in. [Person who originally posted], you basically said everything I’ve been wanting to say for a long time but have been too chicken shit to say because I didn’t want to offend anyone. Most of the time, getting a job purely because you’re a little person (in my opinion) is not a good thing. It is further fulfilling society’s idea that we are something to laugh at; that our value is simply to shock. We can all agree that right now all Miley Cyrus wants to do is make society’s jaw drop. So what’s more “weird” or “freaky” than having little people parading around in your show? As someone who is trying to make it as a serious actress in this industry, not just trying to “be famous” or make money, there is nothing more frustrating than this stigma. The longer little people agree to be used as shock value, the longer it is going to take for us to be taken seriously. I was a bear in Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance and it was my first time doing anything like that…anything where I was being used because of my height, not because of my talent. And I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do. I realize not everyone shares my opinion and I might just be young and naive, but I feel like the acceptance of this kind of treatment has got to stop.
Know how I know that Miley is on top of pop culture right now? People are paying attention to her pet midget. They actually care about her opinions and they’re reporting them. That’s the kind of juice Miley has right now. Because this is such a clear-cut case of “Oh, might as well hop in the spotlight!” from this midge. The sentence “it was my first time doing anything like that… anything where I was used because of my height, not my talent” is the most outrageous sentences ever typed. Honey, every time someone hires you it’s because of your height. I’m not trying to be a dick, that’s just a fact. You could be the best actress in history but whenever that phone rings and there’s a director on the other end, they ain’t calling you to play Helen of Troy, they’re calling you to play the midget in the background. That’s just the way it is. So you can embrace that and be WeeMan or Vern Troyer, or you can be the midget who bitches about being used as a midget and never got another gig in her life. Your call.
Editors Note – Looks like I was dead on about this midget. I knew she thought she looked good for a full grown person. Knew it!
