Now please stop telling young woman to dress like sluts because it is their right.
Stupid tumblr children with your immature delusions of society. Going to get people killed one day.
Now please stop telling young woman to dress like sluts because it is their right.
STOP EXPLOITING TRAGEDY FOR PERSONAL GAIN!
(WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTO & OPEN LETTER)
Dear Jesus Daily and Dr. Aaron Tabor,
I am writing to let you know that I am deeply troubled by your daily doses of tragedy-porn and “like-whoring” efforts. Most recently, the attached (very graphic) image of a poor baby boy his chest cavity open for all to see.
I have no problem with people praying. I have no problem with pages asking for ‘likes’. What I have a problem with is when you use the shock-and-awe of other people’s tragedies for your own benefit. And, please don’t lie to me - these ‘likes” aren’t for this poor baby, they are for your page, your content, and your celebrity status in this sick & twisted new genre of tragedy porn that helps perpetuate delusional narcissism.
ONE RECYCLED HOAX = ONE MILLION LIKES!
Most of all: why are you sharing this image in the first place? This image has already been used in a number of tragedy-porn hoaxes over the last few years, meant to gain “likes” from naive, well-meaning people! (Don’t believe me? Here’s a quick image search: http://bit.ly/19Mbhpo) Some of these previously recycled hoaxes even went as far as to say that “1 share = 1 dollar” donation. How dare you take advantage of your fans in this way! You have gained over 23,000,000 fans because they trust you, yet - you betray this trust by recycling emotion-fllled hoaxes. Shame on you, your trusting fans deserve better!
1 LIKE = 1 PRAYER? 1 SHARE = 2 PRAYERS? SAYS WHO?
(Why not just, well, you know… PRAY?) I’m not saying that this poor child didn’t deserve ALL the help he could get. If I could give $50 to his medical fund, I would. But - I can’t, because you provide absolutely no information about the child or his condition - because all you appear to really be worried about is getting your fans to “like” the post, so more of their friends see it and “like” the page, “like” the post, and so on, and so on…
JESUS SAID, “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.” Matthew 6:5
Now sure, you can claim that you are a victim in all of this, that some anonymous fan sent you the image, and you just ‘fell for it” like the rest of your poor fans. However, as I browse through your timeline, I see a lot of evidence of recycling old images - complete with brand new stories. (But, I get it - you’ve been very smart about your wording with these posts - keep the details just vague enough and nobody can call you a liar, right?) Brilliant marketing!
Well - I don’t “like” your post, Jesus Daily. In fact, I am absolutely disgusted by it. Even in my many years of full time ministry, I found these types of guilt-and-shame tactics to be abhorrent.. Our page has had many images banned/blocked because they quote actual Bible verses that make people uncomfortable. Yet, you use these tragic images of people’s pain and suffering every day for your own benefit? SHAME ON YOU!
TO JESUS DAILY FANS: I love you. I’m sure many of you do pray for this poor anonymous child. Do so! However, you may do so without becoming a willing participant in tragedy porn that traumatizes other viewers who have had terrifying losses of their own. You can do you research to find that this image has been used over and over again. You can think for yourself and not play into the promotion of this tabloid-level smut. STOP ENCOURAGING THIS!
And, before somebody tries to tell me, “Oh, but this is just a tiny group of odd Christians who…” Nonsense! The page has over 23 MILLION fans of this bizarre content. This is a problem! A Jersey-Shore-Meets-Relgious-Grandstanding sort of problem. An “I’m doing my part in this world by clicking ‘like” instead of engaging in the real world,” kind of problem.
I wish this poor anonymous child nothing but the best in life. I hope that he had the best medical attention available to him and was able to get a fighting chance in this beautiful world. I hope that his family was able to find some sort of peace in the middle of a living nightmare. But, most of all - I hope they aren’t further traumatized years later to find their poor child’s broken body has been put on display for you to get a few more ‘likes’ for your page.
At the end of the day, one “like” doesn’t equal one prayer. It equals one nod of agreement from people who are addicted to seeing this type of content, so they feel like something, anything they do has a purpose. You have simply become one of the grand masters of exploiting this very human trait. If this image is years old (as we’ve proven), can’t you just admit that one like = one stroke of your ego?
Please, Jesus Daily - I just ask that use a little discretion!
But, congratulations on your 23,000,000 fans and your 500,000 likes for this latest instance of manipulative tragedy porn. You must be so proud!
(SIDE DISCLAIMER: In addition to losing one child at this age, I have another who suffers from lifelong disabilities that require traumatic surgeries from time to time. If someone were to use either of these tragedies for the own likewhoring, I would hunt them down. I thought of leaving the image unedited to give a stronger impact, but - nobody should ever have to accidentally stumble across this sort of thing.)
Row row row - dlae
my pal did this. stoked he’s finally getting some attention for his little doodle!
Debate over the value of online activism has risen again in the wake of the highly visible Human Rights Campaign marriage equality campaign, which urged Facebook users to replace their profile photographsâ¦
'it's okay because we raised money and we know it's racist and i'm not in it'
you are a motherfucking professor at a university and teacher in high school…and you honestly thought that logic was okay?
UPDATE: I got a message from her daughter saying
Did either one of you start a tweet about that picture with 6700 comments? Are you trying to get a teacher, who I know had impacts on both of you, fired!? The principal addressed my mother that there were accusations on twitter calling her racist and saying she needs to be fired??? Idk if either of you did this. And certainly you’re entitled to your opinion. And if the act of painting a face black is racist so be it. But Robin, the most accepting and liberal person I know, is not racist. She has been in tears all day. I would ask you of either if you started this tweet to take it down. And think about who you’re hurting here. My mother is not racist. And she loves her job and teaching others. She even loved teaching the both of you. So once again, think twice about your accusations.
this was posted on her timeline.
and here is a video of everyone who did blackface and their names are on the end.
She never issued an apology. She also told me and another girl to shut our liberal mouths and that everything wasn’t an issue. She backed out and started saying ‘it wasn’t a mockery.’ and that they did ‘hard work…to help others, not capitalize.’
Boost the fuck out of this. Do not let a woman who openly defends black face educate students.
I have screenshots of further comments before she deleted but they’re on my phone.
Signal Boost Granted!!! you go Victoria.
Whats the twitter linked to this
White people. This is why nobody likes you.
God I hope none of these people have jobs in the near future.
Everyone who tried to get these people fired is an immature hypocrite. You know you all laugh at shit similar to this in context in your day to day lives. But on tumblr and twitter you start to feel all self important, like you’re actually doing good in the world. Keyboard warrior losers. Get off your fat pimply asses and go volunteer somewhere you fucking lazy children. Too hard to tear yourselves away from your desks? Well that just proves my point you drop kicks.
Young people have no fucking idea of the concept of a worthy cause. Yeah try and get this woman fired while the homeless man 10 ft outside your door freezes to death and you feel NOTHING.
The only boost happening here is the boost to your own egos. You stupid little tumblr cunts.
this makes me feel better about my bad dates
The movie version…not sure who stole from who…
LOVE this. :)
