See the point?
Watching the video and saying, "HMM...that's interesting I think I'll develop my own opinion." That's free-thinking and healthy skepticism. Posting it and saying, "Extremely interesting must watch video" is absolutely an open endorsement.
Well, the people you talk about who will follow so easily are in fact the
problem. Not the person/celebrity who endorsed, or better yet, just mentioned something in a tweet as being interesting. To me that is along the same lines as saying Heavy Metal Music, Video Games, Movies or any other things like this are to blame instead of the kid's, whom committed such a crime, actual Parents who should of been regulating any and all of the aforementioned in the first place. My point is, it doesn't matter if someone endorses, mentions, points at or whatever. It's all up to oneself to form their own opinion. To blame another
for forming your
opinion for you is what is ridiculous. She wasn't making 'rape/racist jokes' or anything. So why reprimand?
