    Just be kind

  2. It’s a shame in the US, the Be Best campaign seems to have done nothing. Bound to happen when you put the wife and enabler of oen of the worst bullies in America in charge.

    • Oh poor liberal. So misinformed.

    • @John Smith lol Fox loses every single head-to-head fact check with most news organisations, dummy.

    • David V really? Best Be is a campaign? Start with her husband, a poster child for vile people.

    • @Wesley Beals Not sure if that’s directed to me but that’s why I put in the US in the posting. I also looked up articles on Be Best effectiveness, not great.

    • @Don Hardcastle Social suicide. Just delete twitter you morons. You need it like two dicks?

      Abd if you see @jack out walkung aroind like he dont care.. Kick thebfuck out that hate propigation hack.

  3. It’s not technology, it’s people. Put yourself in the spotlight, and you’re bound to attract attention of all kinds. That comes with publicity, unfortunately. It was true before social media, it’s true now. Example: Princess Diana. The cameras didn’t force the paparazzi to hound her. The paparazzi themselves and the people who consume their content did. But the bottom line is that no one is forcing anyone to consume their content, anymore than anyone is forcing people to use social media. If you don’t like the landscape, leave it.

    You never know what is happening in someone’s life. It’s sad.

    So sad for her and her family. Hopefully, people will learn and change their behavior.

  6. mainstream media started the negative articles, social media just did what they always do. Smh

  7. The sun and the mirror are the bullies. Including skynews. Social media are the minions that fall for the stories.

  8. CAN WE ALL JUST DELETE SOCIAL MEDIA PLEASE

  9. We are all dimished as a species, when we resort to our base instincts of unwarranted cruelty. R.I.P. Ma’am.

  10. To and froms love the idea of self righteousness. You reap what you sow.

    So sad she killed herself to avoid the domestic violence prosecution. Imagine if a man was similar situation and did this

  12. Pathetic. She smashed a sleeping man over the head with a lamp, seriously injuring him.

    If he was a man, this would be considered utterly differently and it is BS.

    • @Josh Jones Heh heh heh as if ANYONE gives a toss about what someone who uses the term “beta boi” thinks. Ima 200lb ex-fulltime rifleman, bouncer and tournament fighter. Whereas you just go on the internet to be tough, I’m tough IRL. I don’t need to insult you.

    • @Josh Jones Get a job

    • @Josh Jones Very common among victims of domestic abuse [both male and female] who have initiated a complaint. There is a ton of reading you can do for free on the internet about it. In the UK, knowing this pattern, the prosecution service ALWAYS prosecute if they believe they have the evidence to convict, whether the original complainant agrees or not.

    • @Josh Jones Aww, that’s nice. What about this person who asked the prosecution service not to prosecute her for lamping her boyf, because she was feeling ‘depressed’ and ‘vulnerable’ about being prosecuted for…lamping her boyfriend?

  13. You know how normal our parents,grandparents and great grandparents are when social media has not yet been invented.

    Who cares CNN back at it with the fake news……….👀🍿

  16. I’m in my 30’s and growing up the reason that America and western countries fought wars was to bring people freedom. American exceptionalism was about spreading freedom although I realize many will disagree with that and point to imperialism and colonization but that’s not what western people were under the impression they were fighting for. Regular average white folks certainly have not gained anything from imperialism other then their own gov calling them racist now for doing what the gov told them to do. These elitist fuks on the left In Europe and NA have completely thrown the freedom dogma out the window in favor of control and now calling those opposed who believe in freedom as racists etc. Perhaps this was always the plan and the elites have used everyone for their own personal gain. Color doesn’t matter when you’re fuking over anyone who is not part of the club. The real blights on humanity. You can’t have a functioning Democracy when you silence speech and create political cult like narratives that if people stray from can land you in jail. That’s authoritarianism and just because it doesn’t effect the rich they are responsible for oppressing the rest of the country so they can feel good with their virtue signalling. What did people of the past in western countries fight wars for if not for freedom?

    Gina Martin is one very courageous and groundbreaking lady! Her views ought to be practiced by all those who don’t already.

    Btw, *_we can all get our point across courteously. You don’t need to be a fckwit about it._*

  18. Hey I would really like to hear the opinion of Michael Avenatti. You guys have had him on so many times as a real source of information.

    🍔 social media has nothing to do with self-esteem and self-worth anybody who thinking or talking about me have no life haters make me famous

  20. People who are suicidal will take their lives sometime in their life,
    even if they are doing well in life without any worries.
