The Internet has made insulting, abusing and hurting other people to their face pretty easy. Take for example some of the things that people -- sorry, cowards -- have been saying to Rebecca Black, the sensation-of-the-day with her painfully addictive Friday.
But, says Charlie Brooker in The Guardian, just because you can call her a "whore," "bitch" or urge her to commit suicide, doesn't mean you should. Especially when you consider that 13-year-old Rebecca donated every single penny that she made out of Friday to the Japan relief effort. What have you done lately?
God knows I enjoy a helping of bile. But only when it's crafted with flair. One of the most disappointing things about the slew of online Rebecca Black abuse is the sheer poverty of language involved. If you are complaining about a banal pop song but can't muster a more inventive way to express yourself than typing "OMFG BITCH YOU SUCK", then you really ought to consider folding your laptop shut and sitting quietly in the corner until that fallow lifespan of yours eventually reaches its conclusion.
If you seriously think Rebecca is that crappy to be worth being wished she was dead, please be sure to post a link to your YouTube music video. It better be awesome. Or help you God.
