Hollywood's Most Despised Satirist Plied Away By Cold Hard Cash.

Threatened with both lawsuits and death threats through the years, Jurgen's opinions on celebrity and media culture and how it elevates the worst in America, is a voice often overlooked in these highly political times.

The man responsible for over 8,000 no holds-barred takedowns on the privileged entertainment class is departing his long time roost. Lex Jurgen's satirical daily ribbings of celebrity and media elite on WWTDD were often cited in outlets such as Fox News, The New York Times, and The Huffington Post. Hollywood might be breathing a sigh of relief for their hypocrisy saved. However, Jurgen assures the world at large his megaphone will only grow stronger with offers to write a sequel to his 2017 book, Man Rules, national radio appearances and a continuation of his successful podcast, Last Men on Earth.

Norman Spantz, owner of multiple edgy news commentary sites, wooed Jurgen away from WWTDD with what he refers to as a package the edgy muckraker could not refuse:

"I've been a huge fan of Jurgen's since forever. How many thoughtful people in this country are truly and unequivocally anti-establishment any more? He makes me laugh every day. More importantly, he makes me think. So I offered to double his salary to launch TerribleWords.com. It will be the new destination for non-partisan, painful truth on the web."

Threatened with both lawsuits and death threats through the years, Jurgen's opinions on celebrity and media culture and how it elevates the worst in America, is a voice often overlooked in these highly political times. In his first week with TerribleWords, Jurgen has already written scathing opinion pieces on the privileged rich white-washing of the Time' Up movement and why nobody bothered to pay attention to Bella Thorne's announcement that she had been sexually assaulted all through her young child acting years. This is not your People magazine looking to be buddy buddy with the subjects of stories. Jurgen expresses a desire for the whole, painful truth.

An excerpt from his opening essay for TerribleWords, reveals Jurgen's thoughts on the importance of the written word, no matter how terrible, no matter the cost in today's politically correct maelstrom and rampant social media backlash:

"People who fear words are less intelligent, less interesting, and less informed than those who embrace words. If words are terrible, then terrible words have tremendous power. A tool to reclaim the world from the censors, reflexive rebukers, and nervous pumpkin-heads of failed Utopias past. Be the ape that embraces the Spacey Odyssey monolith. Evolve. Swim in terrible words."

This sounds like a rallying cry from a man unafraid to hurt people's feelings. That kind of editorial threat should keep much of powerful Los Angeles and New York up at night. There's no gatekeepers to pay off on the Internet.
