  • Prayers up for Piers Morgan 🙏🏻🤣

    • Don't worry, as long as freedom of speech exist, people like Piers Morgan will continue to exist. People are allowed to not like Meghan Markle. People are allowed not to believe her. Meghan is allowed to speak "her truth". People are also free to express their thoughts, feelings and opinions. If you can do a follow-uo on this, react to GMB having their lowest rating with the absence of Piers and people petitioning the return of Piers.

    • its actually pretty normal in advertisement. I forgot the name (some years ago I studied it) But the premise is just to get known, by controlled "outrage". But not the first time Burger King has done this, they did the same to get famous, by sugguesting to team up with Mc Donalds. Weird part to me is to understand that people do not know this

    • I'm disappointed in you Philip. I thought you would have changed after you called the Corvington kids racist for the crime of having white skin. Remember "a lie by omission is still a lie" and that makes you a liar. Context matters to reasonable people. I don't like even like Piers, but please Phil at least try to be decent.

  • People must understand that our generation isn't soft, our generation is given a boundless medium in social media which grants absolute freedom of expression and since people always hold a sense of envy towards famous and successful people, our generation capitalizes on this medium by criticizing and severely attacking them whenever the opportunity is given! This is one of the many consequences of social media because if those kids were not secured behind keyboards, trust me nobody would utter a word of critique!

  • Outrage marketing is a thing. And Burger King just proved it’s legit. Set various points of outrage, each easily defended, none that makes them look bad. Spent a few good bucks and reached such a huge number of people that they wouldn’t reach with a budget like that otherwise. Thanks Twitter people.

  • I'm always happy to see people learn and grow but man, idk about the KSI situation. Dude is a grown ass adult living in a country where trans folks have been in the media a lot. To me it just feels like he's trying to lie about not knowing any better in order to brush off the responsibility - like I could be wrong but I've seen folks do that a lot. I just hope he learns.

  • It's wrong now, and yes it definitely should be, to use the t-word for transgenders; the f-word for homosexuals and the n-word for African Americans but it's still ok to use the c-word for females. I'm probably alone but I get just as offended if I'm called a c u next Tuesday

  • I really do think that if Olivia Jade and her family were really remorseful for their actions, they should sponsor AT LEAST 2 students via FULL scholarship at any institution. They stole the education of 2 deserving students, so they should pay for deserving students to get into college. And if the students wish to further their education, they should pay for that too (similar to the Gates Millennium Scholarship).

  • No, it's not about education, it's about misdirection and confusion. How can a child be mature enough to determine that their natural born gender is wrong? They can't drive, drink, smoke, serve in the military, get a job, but a firearm or stay out past 10pm. Why do we think they have the mental capacity to decide a life altering process?

  • (Edited for a grammar error) I can speak to my own personal viewpoint as a member of the trans community (I'm nonbinary), but I know that everyone will have their own reactions and thoughts to this, so I am by no means a mouthpiece, nor do I want my view to be used to invalidate another's experience. I personally am glad that KSI now addressed those past errings, and whilst I am aware that sometimes people will simply apologise to save face, I always try to approach these situations with cautious optimism. The best outcome I hope for is one where an individual who has caused harm acknowledges that, apologises for it, and makes an effort for reparations and to self-educate (by directly asking members of that group that were harmed, if they are comfortable sharing their view - many will be happy to reach out, whilst many will not want to as they have no obligation to educate you, so find those that are happy to speak and ask them - many of them, because no one person is a mouthpiece for a whole group). I'm glad KSI is acknowledging the harmful and transphobic things he did in the past (even if they were not intended to be transphobic and came from a place of ignorance rather than malice), and I hope that going forward he demonstrates his want to make reparations by reaching out and doing some good, maybe by giving his platform to *multiple* trans creators willing to give input (i.e. not solely Kalvin Garrah or Blaire White, as they are very divisive figures in the trans community). I'm aware that with anything, it could be simply an apology to save face, but I always hope that it is a genuine effort to grow and do better. I should also note that whilst I am aware of at least some if not most of the past instances of transphobia from KSI, I don't watch his content and so my input is only as an outsider looking in. Someone who is more familiar with his content may be able to provide better context than I could. To anyone who actually read to the end of this - damn, thanks, I know those were a whole lotta words!

  • Phil's take on states' decisions like Iowa's is way off. Ballot harvesting is lessened and so is the chance for fraud. Democrats - which Phil probably votes almost if not consistently - are trying to make it easier for fraud to happen. They don't want Voter ID for in person or absentee voting. They want to send you mail in ballots even if you don't want one - to any address listed for you, even if you no longer live there. They want to draw out elections by days if not weeks. Voting is a responsibility of American citizens. Maintain your information and vote consistently.
