And this is why I hate social media activism.
Here's the TL;DR version: A father of three out shopping for his kids sees a Darth Vader cut out, so he goes over and decides to take his first ever selfie to show his kids, thinking they'll get a laugh out of it. As he steps over to the photo, he realizes he's stepping in front of some kids sitting and watching a movie, so he tells them "sorry, I'll just be a minute."
Their mom (who left them there while she went shopping) sees him "talking to them" and "taking their picture." She takes them away, reports him to police, and sends the FB social justice police (aka posts him online) out to get him. Here's what she posted.
But the thing is he didn't do anything wrong. Nothing at all. As soon as he saw the post, he went straight to the police and tried to straighten things out. But his reputation has already been dragged through the mud.
How lame is that? People are so fast to assume that everyone is out to get their children. Of course, it's important to be safe and to protect your children. But you have to be logical and at least ask the man if he was indeed doing what you think he was.
I really hate these people that thing everything needs to be posted and solved through online activism. Especially considering she had his picture and had reported it to the cops, there was no reason to post his picture online.
