Just as Christ was a Superstar, you stupid, Star
They hail you then nail you, no matter who you are
Clever wordplay using the Andrew Lloyd Weber rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” to illustrate the point that our culture praises people and rewards them only to make them a target later. If this happened to Jesus it’ll happen to you, too.
