I went in to work later in the day yesterday and my morning was filled with sleeping. I lazed about and generally didn’t do anything besides eat before going in. Facebook and Twitter kind of slipped my mind. At work I tend to stay off of them too.
So when I got home I was shocked to find out a small wild fire had erupted and spread throughout social media. One of the guys from Duck Dynasty had apparently said something stupid and been punished for it. The speed with which the two sides of the argument rallied against each other was alarming. I’ve never seen more than a few minutes off Duck Dynasty (which was enough for me to be annoyed). Today at work I counted five people wearing Duck Dynasty clothing in support of the show. It’s worrying that people are so in favor of homophobia that anytime some group comes out as being homophobic and gets stomped out for it that they step in to defend the group’s right to say that (even though the right of the group usually isn’t attacked).
I hope the show is canceled and I can go back to not seeing their faces on hats, lunchboxes and headphones. Maybe we can have one less reality television travesty to worry about.
