I love every second of this.
You never have to wait very long for the next hilarious shit storm.
This time in "Shit that doesn’t matter in the slightest, but you can be damn sure that tumblr is gonna turn it into a huge thing and act as if the second coming of Hitler is upon us… theatre"
Jontron said “Retarded” and made a bunch of retards on tumblr angry
i’m just going to leave this here because i think people need to read it and think about it.
i’m not trying to say that what jon did was without flaw, but i think people need some perspective on this issue, especially people on tumblr who tend to try to speak for/speak over others.
THIS IS THE BEST THING
Shut the fuck up this is so amazing. 😱
YES sleeplessnightsofthinking LOOK AT IT
Jon said “Retarded” on Twitter: The Movie
For all you fucking maniacs.
About the JonTron thing:
I could give less of a single shit. It’s his channel. His Twitter. His content. If someone came to me on MYcontent and ask for me to be restricted on what I say, I would have done the same thing Jon did. What he said wasn’t even offensive or even saying it in an offensive manner.
There are different definitions for many words. Retarded is one of them:
“delay or hold back in terms of progress, development, or accomplishment.”
That was essentially the first definition of “retard”.
They used “retarded/retard” in the last few episodes in Drake and Josh for fuck’s sake.
That would be like me using the word “gay” in a sentence in context in which it was originally used for, ”lighthearted and carefree” and people being offended by it because:
"oh no she said gay and is not referring to homosexuals, that’s offensive. Damn white people with their white privilege. Cis scum and their neck beard leaders."
That’s you. That’s what you sound like. You sound silly.
The real reason why tumblr’s mad at Jontron
Ross appreciation post cause he needs some love too!
If your name is “Playstation Now”, you have all the right to be offended. If not, then why are you even complaining?
He insulted a thing, a non-living thing, and everyone suddenly takes it personally, like if the insult was directly to them. I have to ask: Why?
There’s nothing wrong about saying a word, the problem comes when it’s used in a context that is used to offend something a person cares about, that includes the person itself. But seriously, he called that guy retarded because Jon never insulted anyone in the first tweet. And if you feel offended by it, just leave. I mean, if you took it as personally as you’re acting to be offended, then you have all the right to just leave and don’t come back for more “offending words” coming from Jon.
There’s nothing wrong with being different/being handicapped/whatever.
What’s wrong is you people overreacting over the fact that a word has been mentioned.
I seriously fucking hate Tumblr users sometimes.
