Leslie Jones takes a ton of shit on social media because she’s a loud, large, unattractive, black woman. She also had to suffer through a hack of her website and iCloud and revealing photos of her or random headless assplay photos of other black women along with Jones’ personal IDs and private information were posted onto the front page of her website. That has to be extraordinarily sucky.
The straw man among socially tolerant bloggers is that nobody knows Twitter is loaded with vile racists and undersexed young men taunting the shit out of the likes of Leslie Jones after eight hours of loading luggage onto airplanes. Every piece written by the likes of this winded editorialist in the USA Today begins with the premise that nobody but me knows there’s gambling in Casablanca.
It’s time to start acknowledging that these flame-throwing trolls get something out of going after women online. And it’s not an issue of nostalgia, a negative review, free speech or the fault of the victim.
Thanks. Who’s spent five minutes on Twitter ever and not acknowledged this fact? The Islamists plotting their next beheading of children are among the most genteel frequenters to Twitter. It’s a fucking cesspool of stupidity wrapped in rage coated in sperm that will never find a woman. It’s a private social media outlet that is entirely voluntary to join. It’s unfortunate perhaps that it’s so super shitty, but there it is. Twitter couldn’t eliminate all the blatant tools on its site without washing away half of its daily visitors.
Are you spending your free time writing Leslie Jones as a gorilla memes or idolizing and re-Tweeting inspirational quotes from Khloe Kardashian? Either way you ought be cleaning up garbage along the highway. You’re also the typical Twitter user. You have something better to do with your time even if you can’t think of anything at the moment.
