CNN reported today that a Facebook site may have led to beating of 12-year-old.
Here is what they said:
“The beating of 12-year-old boy by a group of classmates at a Southern California middle school may be linked to a Facebook posting encouraging kids to target redheads …
A Facebook page stating that Friday was “Kick a Ginger Day,” referring to redheads and possibly inspired by an episode of the “South Park” series, may have sparked the injuries at the middle school, authorities said.”
Here’s a look at a clip from that South Park episode that people are blaming.Vodpod videos no longer available.
It’s scary that young kids these days are CRAZY enough to do this. Now I highly doubt that this was because of South Park, merely a group of parents looking to blame their kids action on TV rather than their lack of ability to parent their kids properly (this coming from the kid who grew up on South Park).
