“…Stop making stupid people famous”
So, unless you’ve been asleep on the internet, you probably know about the mugshot that went viral. The convicted felon that everyone was swooning over, saying he is “too pretty” to be in jail, etc. Actually, no, he isn’t too pretty to be in jail, not if he committed crimes. He is right where he belongs.
However, the news on this person now is that apparently, he’s getting a modeling agent and modeling gigs from behind bars.
He has mug shots going back 12 years.
So WHAT kind of message does this send to young kids? It’s ok to be a felon, just be pretty, you’ll get a good job.
Just like the other messages we have sent out, already:
It’s ok to make sex tapes, just have some warped superficial sense of pretty, you’ll be famous and rich.
It’s ok to maybe rape young girls and at the very least do questionable things with them, so long as you are an R&B music star.
It’s ok to abuse animals, you’ll still make millions of dollars and be a hero playing football.
(No! It really isn’t. It is CRIMINAL that man was allowed back to play professional football. Shame on the entire NFL and every fan who watches it and endorsed that.)
No wonder kids feel it’s ok to lack ambition and be utterly disrespectful to themselves, authority, the law and each other. Society shows them THAT is what gets rewarded.
You REALLY can’t complain about society going to hell in a hand-basket when it’s your own hand carrying the basket.
