We all really like Chris Traeger which has tricked us into thinking we like Rob Lowe. But Rob Lowe is no Chris Traeger. He’s made some truly questionable statements, because as soon as celebrities are in control of their own message rather than having messages filtered through professionals, we all get to learn that they are not very smart.
Oh, NOW France closes its borders. #Hollande— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) November 13, 2015
If you haven't seen 13 Hours, it's a perfect #MemorialDay movie. A reminder of everything we should never forget. Particularly in 2016.— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) May 30, 2016

Hold up. Is it true that a woman who eats cereal out of a bathtub gets to meet with the President and the Prime Minister of Isreal does not?— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) January 23, 2015

Dear @NFL Any player wants to boycott the anthem on 9/11 should be asked to remain in the locker room until kick off. It's not their moment.— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) September 11, 2016
Rob Lowe, master of etiquette and morality, once made a sex tape with two young women, one of whom was 16.
During his "heyday" @RobLowe did five things a day more deplorable than what Eric Garner et al were killed for. That's why they're kneeling.— Ian Karmel (@IanKarmel) September 11, 2016
Kate Upton, most famous for those nonstop Game of Thrones knock-off app commercials, also had thoughts. Thoughts of patriotism and dubious specificity.
This is unacceptable. You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other. https://t.co/qFozwaH9Bu— Kate Upton (@KateUpton) September 11, 2016
Protest&speak ur mind whenever u want but during the 120secs you should support the people who protect our freedom. https://t.co/qFozwaH9Bu— Kate Upton (@KateUpton) September 11, 2016
Yes, we lose 120 seconds of constitutional freedom every football game. This stacks up, which is why we have a constitutional leap year every 200 years or so.
Read my Instagram post. They have every right and SHOULD protest just not during those 2minutes on 9/11 https://t.co/ecBMmUifnw— Kate Upton (@KateUpton) September 12, 2016
This is all getting very specific, Kate.
