30 Days and 30 Blogs
I came across this Twitter exchange while I was staring at my phone to avoid awkward elevator conversations. It starts with one of several Twitter folks pretending to be Darth Vader reacting to a photo of the moon.
Now, is there anything in that post that gets you upset? Like really upset? Angry enough to start spewing foul venom upon the internet? No? Well then you’re not this crazy green lady! (Warning: FOUL language)
Okay. Let’s unpack all this hate. First off, it’s too bad I had to block out her profile pic. Becasue the image next to all that hate and cursing is a mom holding an adorable baby. The baby actually takes up more of the picture. I like to imagine that the baby is typing these tweets. That may well be because she clearly misses the joke. It’s always fun to see such a mainstream pop culture reference fly over someone’s head like the Star Destroyer chasing that rebel blockade runner. (hold for applause) But then Darth tries interacting with her. It’s like you can hear Admiral Ackbar yelling “It’s a trap!” But it’s too late, her Death Star of profanity is fully operational, if not fully spell checked.
At this point, Darth does the sensible thing and blocks crazy green lady, but that doesn’t stop the fury. No, it just gets her to spew more hate…to someone who can’t see it. He blocked her, and yet she replies to him FIVE more times. It’s as though she thinks she can break through his block if she just tweets angrily enough. And this is a personal pet peeve, but I hate when people play the “freedom of speech” card, when they clearly don’t know what it means. Unless she thinks the Empire is America’s governing body. Which I doubt since she saw Darth’s mini twitter bio, “Rebel Hunter || Father || Force Choker,” and decided to make a crack about him being a bad father. Way to go lady…sick burn.
Then a friend of mine (we’ll call her “Dodger Blue”) jumps into the fray. Will cooler heads prevail? Would I be putting this in the blog if they did?
Oh dear, Dodger Blue, you’ve incurred the wrath of the mean green hate machine. My favorite part of those tweets is after several hate and profanity filled tweets, green tells Dodger Blue to “suck rocks u tiny little turd.” No, lady. You can’t drop F-bombs right and left and then think “suck rocks” and “turd” are gonna get you anywhere.
Did you read that? She’s an author. She’s. An. Author. This has to be a bluff. Let me look up HER mini bio real quick. Wow!!! It says, “I’m an author & write a lot of poetry! God is my rock!”
God is her rock, everybody. What passage in the bible tells us to work ourselves up into a frenzy of gay bashing, cursing, and wishing for people to be deported to the most notorious prison in the world…over Star Wars quotes?
PS- I googled her name. No books or articles written by her came up. She’s as much an author as I am a singer.
