This reminds me of an excellent article I read recently by Jon Ronson. Best known to me as the book writer from whence came the movie “The Men Who Stare at Goats”
Which I would just do as a link, but still new to medium and figuring it out
This article is about the kinds of people who make Aids jokes on twitter and have their whole life shattered. In the case you mention, it’s a little vapid selfie action. And when you dig, as you did, you see it’s maybe a little bit more.
We’ve become very unforgiving. Thanks for the reminder.
