Sherri Shepherd and Online Bullying
Online bullying is the crisis du jour in American culture, and what we certainly need, is another slactivist celebrity to raise “awareness” about the issue. Enter The View co-host Sherri Shepherd.
Sherri got the opportunity to pontificate on this subject when she received the following tweet on June 6:
“@DaCloneKiller: somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you.”
Apparently, Sherri wasn’t as charmed and impressed by the profundity of that pithy comment as I was.
She responded with the following tweet:
“We cannot let this bullying of our children……we have got to stand up to bullies – even online bullies. Online bullying needs 2 stop @twitter – children are dying b/c they don’t know how to combat cowards like @DaClone Killer.”
Um Sherri, children aren’t dying because of some guy’s private tweet to a 45 year old public figure. Children are dying because you say things like: “I’m speaking as a girl who had a lot of abortions……..I was sleeping with a lot of guys and had more abortions than I would like to count.”
First off, you’ve gotta have McKenzie Phillips-type daddy issues if you get to a point where you can’t keep track of your abortion tally. When you need a savant with the counting abilities of Rain Main to calculate the number of pregnancies you’ve terminated, then it’s time to start discussing state-mandated sterilization. And if you want to help the children, feel free to take one on the thigh or have your abortion-daddy toss on a bag every once in a while.
