I’ll be honest, this Jameis Winston blowback caught me completely off guard. Like I know that it shouldn’t, I know that it’s 2014 and people eat, sleep and breathe outrage and basically wake up in the morning with the sole purpose of getting super mad about something. I know that people can’t rest at night until they’ve taken someone down on Twitter or voiced a strong opinion on their Facebook. But a college kid yelling the most popular internet meme of the year with his friends on a college campus getting thoroughly bashed by the media, benched for a half of football and forced to give a press conference apologizing on ESPN? Holy shit, that one I did not see coming.
Like all these people that tweeted about Jameis yelling “fuck her right in the pussy” on the table in the middle of the union, you know why they did it? Because they thought it was hilarious. They said it was the funniest thing ever and put tons of those crying laughing face emojis. Said it was #epic and made their day.
Probably never thought in a million years journalists and administrators and coaches with no idea what the internet is or how it works would latch onto it and say it was a misogynistic lewd offensive outburst against women and get their star QB suspended for a big game. Cut em some slack and focus your anger at the people who deserve it, the morons who thought rape allegations and theft were totally fine so long as there were no curse words uttered during it.
