Stoopid, Part 2
This is a viral video made and uploaded to YouTube by a 14-year old boy living in Ottawa. The backlash has been predictably ferocious: publication of his name, address and other personal info, death threats, the family had to change their phone number, etc.. You know the drill.
I just wanted to add this clip to my list of stoopid people, this one belonging to the category of morons caught spouting racist rants and getting all surprised and devastated when the bomb they set explodes in their face. I know, I know, he's only 14 years old. There was also that 18 year old girl in the States who made a viral video ranting against Orientals ("ching chong", she said to imitate them. Classy, right?). I wonder how many more of shitstorms like this before people - young and old - realize that if you don't want your life to become a living hell, YOU DON'T MAKE A VIDEO OF YOURSELF BEING AN ASSHOLE AND PUBLICIZE IT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW!!
