I think celebrities are ruining Kickstarter for the small people- they are co-opting it and making it their own - I am so against it- they take everything- they have money and want more and take it from everyone-
they are completely selfish and not about seeing the small people come up - investments in film have always been risky and sexy and a celeb with a name will get more because people will be excited to be near it-
Kickstarter is now destroyed in my opinion- so tired of rich people and celebs taking everything- where does narcissism and greed end with them?
