Carson City, NV— A once-beloved real estate agent’s life has been turned upside down over recent tweets he made disparaging America’s Sweetheart, Sandra Bullock.
Clark Monroe’s girlfriend has left him, and he was fired from Thompson Realty after fourteen years, including three as “Top Lister” of the year, following tweets he posted on April 30 and May 1.
The first post appeared on his Twitter page at 10:13 pm on April 30 and read: “Finaly (sic) watched The Blind Side. Sandra Bullock won Oscar for THIS?? Really?”
That post was followed up at 10:22 with “I can understand maybe giving n (sic) Oscar to the make-up people for making her look decent!”
After several responses questioning Monroe’s motives behind the tweets and asking about his mental state, Monroe’s final tweet at 12:48 am on May 1 said, “Look, she just isn’t all that goodlooking (sic) or much of an actress. That’s all.” All the tweets have since been deleted from his page.
After the tweets were picked up by the Nevada Appeal’s website on May 1, his employer, Oliver Thompson, released a statement saying, “I have not spoken with Clark, so it is hard for me at this time to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments. The entire Thompson Realty organization is very proud of the roles Ms. Bullock has chosen and the films she has made, and we can only hope she continues to make quality films for years to come.”
But the very next day, Monroe was let go from Thompson Realty, and security escorted him from the premises.
His girlfriend of seven years, Marie Hollister, moved out of the apartment she and Monroe shared and back in with her mother about six miles away, and is still dumbstruck over the tweets.
“I always knew he didn’t love her movies,” Hollister said. “But to question her winning an Oscar, or to say she isn’t all that pretty…I’m sorry. I just never knew what a monster he could be.”
Hollister said she hasn’t been to work since the story broke, and has a hard time getting out of bed some days. “You think you know someone,” Hollister said. “You share all your secrets with them, and you see a life with them. But then to go and make statements like that. That’s not the man I fell in love with. I don’t know who that is.”
Monroe could not be reached for comment on this story, and has not tweeted since his earlier tweets were deleted.
