Normally, I try not being an a**hole (unless justified of course.)
And I would not usually castigate a person for (calmly and respectfully) expressing his or hers views.
So, if you castigate a person for (calmly and respectfully) expressing his or hers views on a subject, situation, or circumstance, you could very well be an a**hole too.
Not in all instances, but sometimes.
However, not in this situation.
We The People must speak the Hell out about an act that takes stupidity to high-art…So I defy you to give any credence to/defend this act as “kids being kids” or it being a “fad” or people “just looking for their fifteen minutes of fame” BS.
Who in their right mind would eat a chemically laced soap pod? A poisonous soap pod.
If you willing put alcoholethoxy sulfate, linear alkylbenzene sulfonate or propylene glycol (just a few of the toxins in Tide Soap Pods) in your mouth, you’re pretty much an a**hole.
Personally, I’d rather eat butternut squash – raw- than a Tide Soap Pod. (And that’s saying something!)
Stop making stupid people famous for doing really stupid things.
