The world of the internet is full of mind boggling traps that one mistake, one false move and herds of angry jackasses will hunt you down and the media is backing it up for their own selfish cause. Think for example “comedian” Stephen Colbert post a short comment on his twitter account denigrating Asians as “I am willing to show the #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching Chong Ding Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” The comment has since been deleted but the damage was already too late since groups wanting his head, I mean, his show being cancelled and his reputation (if he has one) goes seven feet under.
Another story involves a so-called Editor of Self Magazine who from the shallow of her black and inconsiderate heart post a tasteful comment in her magazine to a cancer survivor who was running in a marathon. The girl Monica Allen is a cancer survivor since two years ago was dressed as wonder woman and she’s the founder of her business Glam Runners. The quote “A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC’s Central Park, and it’s all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it.” The comment from this magazine which is surely a waste of time reading it, got a lot of anger from readers and subscribers many were cancer survivors who demanded not just her apology but her firing as well.
Third and last is the bubble head Gwyneth Paltrow who not only created the words “conscious uncoupling” to her split to “musician” Chris Martin but her sarcastic views of comparing her acting career to struggling working moms drew the ire of working mothers in the US. This person who thinks she’s god’s best gift to “mankind” is turning into one of the clueless, offensive celebrities of 2014. Many working and struggling moms went haywire and one person wrote how she felt by her bull. By saying “I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set,” many fans who watched her movies were haywire and up in arms with it. Maybe Gwyneth should stick to acting and not commenting insensitive, offensive comments.
So the thing over the internet is simple. Keep your mouth shut if you’re going to comment something that people might not like it. Your reputation depends on it.
