I’ve been weeping with laughter for 5 minutes over this:
When comic Marcia Belsky sarcastically replied “men are scum” to a friend’s Facebook post back in October, she never anticipated being banned from the platform for 30 days.
That was exactly what happened.
Belsky was shocked at the severity of the punishment considering her relatively innocuous comment, and immediately spoke to her fellow female friends about the ordeal.
Severe punishment! Shocked! Ordeal!
I had the same bout of uncontrollable laughter yesterday when a newscaster asked an interviewee, “Have you pondered the genesis of this tweet?”
People are taking social media way too seriously.
