I didn't read this NYT story save to find out the people they discovered who have purchased bot followers to up their social media "influence."

and I found it hilarious that Britt McHenry has purchased followers. that poor girl is so desperate

I got kind of excited when I received a notification on Twitter that Ryan Adams is a new follower.

But, it was a different Ryan Adams.

Jay Feely's apparently getting a lot of grief over this tweet and has even apologized.

So?

One of these days Alice...POW! Riiiight in the kisser!

That was once funny, too. Then...it became OK for women to speak up about domestic abuse, and all of a sudden...not so funny anymore.

Feely made a joke involving a gun, implying a threat to a high school student.

The kick is up...(and it clanks off the uprights...)

You can have my dad jokes when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

Eh. John Hughes once had jokes involving rape imbedded in his movies from the 80s. Times change. What was once funny can evolve to become cringeworthy today. That said, while I get the meaning of the joke, the incredible tone deafness is what draws its deserved criticism.
