Unfortunately, the collateral damage is never discussed. I have heard of at least 3 people just this week, who have lost their jobs, for no other
reason then their bosses caved in to the call for blood from social media.
Locally a real estate agent was terminated because one person was able to generate an army of people to post attacks against her on the company's web
page. The insane thing is that the agent had done nothing to most of them, they just decided to hate her and demand her job, because one person that
had a social media presence, convinced them to do so.
Before Rosanne's Twitter post, half of the people who claimed to be so outraged and offended, didn't even know who JV was. They claim outrage because
they were programmed to do so. I bet they still don't know who she is. I bet they never bothered to even research why the post was made or even what
the hell she meant.
I don't like Roseanne Barr. I never have. I always found her coarse, crass, and vulgar. Her humor does not appeal to me, but obviously she has a lot
of people that do like her and follow her. I guess there are a lot of people that are offended by what she does and what she says. I understand that,
and I am not saying one does not have the right to be offended. I just take exception with this new trend of punishing and whipping everyone into
submission because they don't think, feel, and behave, exactly the way the same way as someone else.
You see, the power of social media is being used as a weapon by those in control, and those playing along like good little minions, are clueless to
how they are being used. They won't realize it until those spears they are throwing, start to boomerang back and hit them in the ass.
