I wasn’t sure if I wanted to write on this but as RuPaul says on drag race, ‘please leave the stage as I deliberate.’ Well I deliberated and decided to give my 2 cents. It’s probably been said already but no matter.
When the posts of Keaton started to pop up I refused to watch the video. I saw this image of a boy who clearly was in distress. A boy who was clearly in pain so I knew that I would get emotional if I watched the video. I know that feeling of pain because I too in elementary school was bullied. My son unfortunately felt the pain too in elementary school and as a parent I know how the mom must feel as the pain, although different, is unbearable. Even after seeing all the support from Hollywood, the sports and music industry I stayed clear of the video. Not too long after, the stories about the mom and this family and their shadiness started to make noise. Story after story. There are even stories that Keaton isn’t that innocent either.
There are two things 2017 will be remembered for; fake news and the over use of the word ‘narrative’. Well… maybe three… hard to ignore Trump but you kinda feel that they’re all related. Am I right?
We live now in times where there is so much that is fake. We seem to thrive on it. From Facebook, to especially Instagram we promote and push a fake narrative. Most of what’s on Instagram is nothing but smoke and mirrors. I believe that Keaton got bullied but I also believe that his mom is a liar. She took it upon herself to make the news rounds with Keaton to explain herself. Her explanations are nothing short of bullshit. You have a husband who’s a white supremacist, you take photos with the confederate flag which was meant to be ‘funny’ somehow…and then you have this:
I think it’s pretty clear what y’all are about. There is no fake news here You are what you are.
It’s all about the narrative.
wow. speechless… i guess i shouldn’t be surprised.
Last night I listened to this podcast and it just broke my heart. In the end Joan was just looking to be loved. I commented to a colleague about how much tragedy has come out of the WWE and in listening to this u come to understand and realize why. The McMahon’s. I am not surprised at all that Tripe H is involved as well. That Chyna’s downward spiral involved him. I don’t know the guy but he comes across as a real asshole. A lifetime ago I got to see Chyna at my local gym. Triple H was there too and she was pretty much glued to him… I wanted to so badly approach her for a picture but didn’t because of him. He came across as so unapproachable that I figured he’d just embarrass me…What a presence she had though. I was completely infatuated with her. And to watch her evolve in WWE was awesome ! Yes, she was a pioneer, a ground breaker of barriers. To listen to Vince Russo talk about the McMahon’s as being users and abusers is not surprising.. through gym life I got to see and meet some wrestlers when they came to Montreal… some were unapproachable, some weren’t… Razor Ramon, Warlord were guys I was able to have conversations with… and there was never anything good to say about Vince McMahon. A Tyrant.
Russo mentioned the many times Joan was out of it and as I mentioned in my earlier post… a few weeks back on twitter I felt that too.. she was putting out tweets that were incoherent.. I think to the point where fans were concerned so she tweeted a reassuring tweet that she was ‘ok’..she clearly wasn’t.
It’s very sad that Chyna left us and was not able to get that closure she certainly deserved.
oh brother… and let’s face it… this is the woman that will sell u that working out hard and eating right is what gave her the butt she had!!
Disturbing and yet intriguing at the same time. In this day and age of photo/video manipulation it’s possible that this is yet another one.. but crap.. she bites huge chunks out and then maybe one bite before swallowing!!! mental!!!
i’m hungry though all of a sudden. 🙂
Well that sure as hell didn’t take too long!!! #redintheface
