Some people call them stupid, naïve, sweet, hot, crazy, gullible, baddest. Just as the zip file or folder that their videos came in was named (1 whores).
The man in front and behind the camera also took some bashing; all the comments led to the size of his manhood, and the words he used to lure these girls into pornography. All this could have been seen by just clicking on a short link that included the words ‘media’ and ‘fire’ to download.
The media held the rod of correction over their heads, with posts upon posts, comments after comments, every Tom, Dick and Harry shared a view.
However, when I said media, it wasn’t the regular traditional media, no, this was the newest and fastest growing media of the 20th century; social media.
Almost 90% of the world population has access to any one type of social media, such as facebook, twitter & My Space, so I guess these girls, these ‘Trini girls’, are now worldwide celebs.
But was it right for persons using different social media (who can also be viewed as citizen journalists), to repost or resend these files to others? Didn’t the bible say ‘he who is without sin cast the first stone’? So why are we judging? Why are we encouraging it by reposting?
Or is it that the shocking imagery of these girls, forced us into a verbal trance, that we deemed it news worthy. And because it was so news worthy that the creator or heads of these social media did not need to censor or delete these footage from inception?
I am still not sure, can you tell me?
