Irony and Hypocrisy

A little while back i put up a post about irony.

I wanted to follow this up by pointing out the difference between Irony, and Hypocrisy.

For example, to utter the phrase “homophobia is so gay”, that’s irony.

However, saying something like, “Adele’s songs are over performed and people should stop because it’s ruining them,” not even a week after performing not one but two of them yourself, that’s hypocrisy.

These two often get mixed up, with people citing their actions as ironic in order the escape sounding like an asshole.
