A few years back sports talk chicks Sarah Spain and Julie Dicaro were praised for being brave and stunning because they had some actors read mean tweets directed at them and tried not to cry. Pretty cringe.
The mainstream media ate this bullshit up because they love to present women as weak minded simpletons who are always being victimized. Meanwhile these are influential people on major media networks, they have hundreds of thousands of social media followers and the blue checkmark legitimizing them. If you’re in the spotlight then that then mean tweets come with the territory. Anyone who wants to whine about it has no business being in the public eye. Twitter has a block function. Try using it and shut the fuck up because no one cares about mean things that trolls write on social media.
I thought the segment was especially hilarious considering the fact that I get much, much worse than that on a daily basis, despite having a smaller following. But do you see me whining about how hard men have it online? Nope. Because I refuse to play the victim when I’m not one. To test this theory out I went through my inbox on ONE Facebook page, screenshotted a handful of mean messages and had three turtle riders come on the live show to read them to me. Could they make me cry? Watch for yourself.
Here’s some of the messages they read for your viewing enjoyment. Remember, mean messages from people who don’t matter only has an effect on you if you let it affect you. The Internet is an ugly place. If you’re not built to deal with shit like this then you’re not ready for the Internet.
Remember, this was just from one account. We’ve had dozens of Turtleboy accounts. It happens every day, and it’s really not a big deal. Anyone who whines about mean tweets is an attention seeking asshole.
