It should also be pointed out here that some of what I've read implies that both Amy (of Amy's Baking Company fame) and her husband Samy (of Amy's husband and co-owner of Amy's Baking Company fame) both have some criminal activities in their past and perhaps even some jail time (at least for her, from what I've read).
I give the back story here for a simple reason . . . I don't know Amy or Samy. I clicked on the first Tweet I saw and thought it was an interesting/funny situation and I Tweeted accordingly but then I clicked over to their Facebook page, read a little deeper and promptly deleted my Tweet. Why? I don't care about Amy or Samy all that much but, I gotta' say - I "felt for" them in a weird way.
But the rest of you - the minute you REALIZE a person (people) is (are) emotionally unstable and are otherwise in full blown crisis . . . do you NEED to mock them? Do you HAVE to "like" when they are mocked? And I'm talking about people calling them ugly, telling them God doesn't love them, people begging that they not reproduce, people posting things about their past that have nothing to do with their bakery or business practices.
Why is it we would feel it is unfair when it is US being mocked? Why would we rush to the defense of someone we know? Why would we not even hesitate to be the attacker/cheerer/etc. when it was a stranger? Even if we felt they "deserved" it (again, for things they never did to "us" directly)?
I know people think I'm a "bit too much" and that I need a "filter" but the good/bad news with me is that I won't say anything about you behind your back or through the protection of a keyboard that I would not say to your face. I don't go out of my way to be cruel. I don't think of myself as overly critical, etc. But I truly struggle in this "age" of digital communication.
