Twitter: Be A Doll And Shut Up

Twitter: Be A Doll And Shut Up

Whether you're an internet troll, or a troll in real life. Shut up.

July 15th, of 2016, the new Ghostbusters movie came into theaters. The 2016 version is a remake of the popular Ghostbusters film that was released in 1984. The leading roles are all played by women, because this is 2016 and women are killing it. Melissa McCarthy is a leading role, but what also takes the cake are the three other leading roles that are taken by SNL stars. Kristen Wig, Kate McCinnon, and Leslie Jones have repped SNL and made this movie incredible. In its opening weekend it racked up $46 million, which is $46 million more than I have. The movie has been a complete success and the original cast from 1984 have completely fallen in love with it, but like anything that is good, there comes hate.

For some reason, being a celebrity means that no matter what you do, you get hate. I understand, being in the public eye, and everyone criticizing everything you do, but I don’t understand the hate. Leslie Jones, a 46 African American actress and comedian has received a lot of hate from her new movie debut. And I’m not talking about the typical Kim Kardashian twitter trolls that say things like, “oh did you really wear that blouse with that skirt?”. I’m talking about racial slurs like never before.

Really?

Another gorilla comment, very mature. Like anyone, make fun of a person all they want, but don't bring anyone's family into anything. It is disrespectful and makes you seem like a coward. Unfortunately, they don't stop there. The next one really makes me angry.


A lot of people think, it's social media, just ignore it. And it could be easily ignored, but they intentionally mentioned her twitter name so she had to see it. For a comment like that, it worries me that this world is full of hate. It bothers me to read something in this nature, and the person isn't even talking about me.

On what grounds is it okay for a person to receive disrespect and hatred? Being critiqued comes with fame, but not receiving down right hatred for nothing. She did nothing but pursue her dreams. She worked hard and never gave up on doing what she loved, but she gets hated on? She hasn't had some big scandal. She never had been exposed for being insincere. She never once gave anyone a reason for to get such hatred. I can't imagine doing something you love, finally reaching the goal you worked so hard for, then reading stuff like this. To me, Leslie could have made an infinite amount of money off of that movie, but no one deserves to be treated with hate. No one.

It is hard to always have something nice to say, but why can't we just follow the kindergarten rule? If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

Logan Paul Ending His Daily Vlogs Is The Best Change For YouTube

Logan Paul and his toxic entitlement is finally on its way out.
41
views

Almost everyone on social media can recognize Logan Paul, a YouTube star who has amassed over 16 million subscribers last year. He is known for his insane antics and pranks around all parts of the world, and for a while, the Internet praised him for his obnoxious nature. For the majority of his career, Logan Paul was clean regarding any scandals or misconducts. Until 2018.

In January of 2018, Logan Paul traveled to Japan to film a video about his "adventures." While having a similar persona to that of a stereotypical American tourist (but worse), Logan distastefully went around Tokyo and disrespected the people and culture of Japan. Despite his insolence in the big city of Tokyo, perhaps his venture to the forests was his ticket to the eventual catastrophe.

Logan Paul and a couple of his friends visited Aokigahara, also known as "Suicide Forest" due to the high amount of suicides that occur within it. They began walking around the forest and joking, until Logan stopped and claimed that he saw a dead body hanging from a tree. While filming the suicide victim, Logan and his friends began to laugh and joke about finding a dead body and continued talking about how that was the "craziest thing they've ever seen."

Shortly after the video was posted, Logan received major backlash from social media. Not only did he get a massive amount of criticism from regular people and celebrities alike, he also lost millions of subscribers and followers on all of his social media platforms.

After taking time to "reflect," Logan came back with a video about suicide awareness and also donated one million dollars to prevent suicide (which, by the way, happened only after his ad revenue was cut). Had he learned his lesson? We thought so. Until a couple weeks later. Right after his suicide awareness video, Logan Paul posted a video of himself with his friends being obnoxious again — tasering dead rats.

It is very clear to me that Logan Paul did not truly feel remorse about the Tokyo trip, he just put on a show for everyone watching because he got caught. The year 2018 has been rough for Logan, and earlier this month, he finally announced his retirement from doing his daily vlogs.

Logan Paul does not have any respect for the world outside of his privileged, Beverley Hills bubble, and the world is finally starting to realize it. Logan has a massive amount of influence on Generation Z, and the lifestyle he is promoting is extremely unhealthy to developing minds. YouTube, YouTubers and we as people have a duty to have respect and empathy for people, animals and cultures worldwide. By taking out a small portion of the problem, we can help to stop anymore people like Logan Paul plague the Internet.

To help eliminate Logan Paul's influence, you can go to sign a petition with over 25,000 signatures to ban him from YouTube. Also, it would benefit everyone to avoid watching his videos and earning him money for posting them. When we stop Logan Paul, we stop his legacy from being a successful one.
