Mostly I don't want to live in a world where, if I or someone else makes an error in judgement and slips and says something that others happen to find
offensive, and based upon that single slip, lose their career or worse.
Not because they believe in doing anything to hurt anybody, not because they did hurt anybody, and not because they threatened to hurt anybody, but
because people decided that they "might" believe in hurting somebody, "might" hurt somebody, and decide to perceive what was said as a threat, because
of how they personally chose to interpret the statement.
You all aren't mind readers, not a single one of you personally knows the guy, and other than this single video, you have no real context to judge the
man as a genocidal maniac bent on culling the human population through a super virus. All you honestly CAN say for a fact is, he said something you
found offensive due to the subject matter.
So unless more can be gotten than this vid, something actually concrete besides, referencing a movie and describing a super virus as a possible means
of culling the human populace, please cut it with the demonizing of the man.
Do I think a super virus is a laughing matter? Not really no. But I'm not going to call for this guys head or make the assumption he's a cold
hearted megalomaniac because he made a poor joke once without knowing more about him personally.
I'm sorry I just... It saddens me how quick people are to label others off of so little information. Like anyone can claim to have not said
something stupid, embarrassing, or in poor taste in their lives.
Think of the worst thing you've ever said in your life. Now imagine others defining you by that one thing.
Not a very good picture of you is it?
I just, I'd like to believe I live in a world where people aren't so quick to judge and form negative opinions of others. Give the benefit of the
doubt more often.
Remember this, if you judge and persecute someone, and it turns out to be wrong, it is you who have wronged them.
If you do not, and they do wrong, it is they who have wronged.
So please tell me you give people more of a benefit of the doubt than this. I really don't want to live in a world where one wrong thing being said
is all it takes to be labelled a monster, because that's a scarey place to live.
