Buzzfeed Gets Results: Random Person No One Ever Heard Of May Be Fired Because of Joke Tweet! Yaaayyyy!!!

Justine Sacco, a woman with 100 Twitter followers who no one ever heard of, is -- or perhaps was -- a communications director with IAC, a firm that owns a bunch of internet companies (like About.com).

She did something you're not allowed to do anymore: She made a joke.


Well, obviously she's telling a darkly ironic joke, of the kind you see on Saturday Night Live and the Family Guy every week. And sure, like the jokes on those shows, it's not terribly funny and it's a bit hacky.

But it's a joke. And not a joke at Africans' expense, either. It's black humor commentary about her soft, safe white life.

Obviously.

Well, you and I might understand that, but @BuzzfeedAndrew -- or, as I call him, "Scoop Kascynski" -- knows a smokin' hot story (and clickbait for a slow news day) when he sees it.


Well, a whole bunch of people joined in to say how awful this woman was, just because everyone secretly loves the game they played as children, when a group of kids would circle around and terrify and humiliate one kid who the group jointly decided was fair game for cruelty. Everyone loves joining in a group to destroy someone deemed "outsider."

And this ritual Pack Animal Frenzy Behavior bore fruit -- the woman's company has been apprised of her WordCrime, and they promise they'll take "appropriate action."

“This is an outrageous, offensive comment that does not reflect the views and values of IAC. Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action.”

Isn't that wonderful?

By the way, Buzzfeed's article, headlined...

Internet Erupts After PR Woman For Media Firm Tweets A “Joke” About Getting AIDS In Africa

Justine Sacco is at the center of a massive Twitter storm after joking that white people can’t get AIDS.

...fails to acknowledge that Buzzfeed Editor Andrew Kaczinsky was a major player in ginning up this "internet eruption" and in calling the "Twitter storm" to savage Sacco.

So Buzzfeed created a clickbait "let's get this random stranger fired just to prove we have power" story, and then they publish that story and get traffic off it, without acknowledging that they are, in fact, key actors in all of this.

So, Sacco's on her way to Africa and doesn't even know that Buzzfeed has worked so diligently to bring her unauthorized Humorousness to the attention of her bosses.

Won't it be a lovely Christmas for her.

Aren't human beings just the most wonderful types of people?

Update: I forgot to mention this. Buzzfeed did a little more journalistic digging to find out what other Naughty Things this allegedly Free Citizen might have said in her past.

It's quite scandalous what they uncovered.

This is not the first time that Sacco has tweeted something that was professionally questionable…


I'm so glad we Told On Her.

Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian


The strain of AIDS prevalent in Africa is actually different from the strain prevalent in The West. It's most most easily transmitted, for one.

No evidence of mosquito-transmission yet, but more more causal contact than repeated butt-pounding (which is required here) can transmit it in Africa. Any bodily fluid.

Actually, a fair number of white people can't get AIDS.

HIV uses a particular surface receptor on cells to gain entry. It's the same receptor used by the bubonic plague.

The world's white populations are largely descended from survivors of the huge and horrible waves of plague that swept through Europe, which imposed a very strong selective bias in favor of people whose genome did not code for that particular receptor.

Biological history is a funny thing.

86 "No evidence of mosquito-transmission yet, but more more causal contact

There's another thing going on WRT the transmission of the virus in an African context, which is the local cultural preference of men for "dry" vaginal sex. Many African women will actually insert various dehydrative agents to keep their men happy.

The tissues of a dry vagina are far more likely to be torn during intercourse, allowing the virus to get at the bloodstream, and normal vaginal lubrication has antibacterial and antiviral properties which are also obviously lost due to this practice.

If a white person mentions race, they are a racist. The context or intent of the racial-oriented word is completely irrelevant. Double-racist if they were trying to be ironic or funny.

Internet rule #2:

All racists must be personally destroyed, until broke and despised. The only way out is suicide.

107 The tissues of a dry vagina are far more likely to
be torn during intercourse, allowing the virus to get at the
bloodstream, and normal vaginal lubrication has antibacterial and
antiviral properties which are also obviously lost due to this practice.

115 But it's a joke. And not a joke at Africans' expense, either. It's black humor commentary about her soft, safe white life.

****

Actually it's more about the reality.

Africa was a boomtown for AIDS part of the reason was this:


In 1994, when Mobutu rules Zaire for more than thirty years, the civil wars next door in Rwanda and Burundi climaxed in genocide. After the slaughter the defeated Rwandan Hutu genocidaires--the Interahamwe--fled through the mountains to Zaire. They brought with them their intensive experience in butchery, and something else:an attitude cultivated by Hutu Power propaganda that as a matter of ethnic pride and political policy, tutsi women must be raped. But once Hutu men got the hang of rape, they branched out to other ethnicities. they would rape any female:young, old, babies,grandmothers,tiny girls. the Interahamwe continued for a long time to be the worst, the most brutal, offenders; but soon all of the guerrilla factions in Zaire took up rape, and Mobutu's national army adopted the practice as well. the Congo was on its way to becoming the rape capital of the world.

War is Not Over When It's Over:Women Speak Out from the Ruins of War by Ann Jones

^This is one of the reasons AIDS has been so hard to eradicate from Africa. Rape became part of the culture--or race war.

Well, welcome to a world where you can say something fairly innocuous and be virtually-lynched for it.

Reminds me of a situation in the Yugoslavian film, "When Father Was Away on Business" where a party man in some backwater region sees a cartoon in the big-city newspaper, which he relates (a couple of days later) to a higher up party official, who deems the jest "inappropriate." That's why father went away "on business" -- he was sent off to the work camp to be re-educated for the sin of recounting a joke published in a newspaper.

We've pretty much reached that point of being fairly intolerant of anything certain, treasured constituencies find "offensive." In other words: forget free speech and embrace the totalitarianism.

I listened to an interview with the notably idiotic Eve Ensler of _Vagina Monologues_ fame (on NPR, of course).

Ensler talked at length about the huge African gang rape epidemic and its utterly horrific effects upon African women and children. And she was firmly prepared to place blame where blame needed to be placed.

It was all the fault of, Ensler said, (drumroll)... THE PATRIARCHY.

Yes, rapes in Africa aren't the fault of African men. They're collectively the fault of all men, of all ethnicities, everywhere, throughout time and space.

184 Activists: Rape in Africa Driven by Inequality, Weak Prosecution





Anita Powell
November 07, 2013

JOHANNESBURG — Rape is considered an epidemic in Africa - even in countries with advanced legal systems like South Africa. A look at the statistics, some of the cultural roots, and the legal and implementation challenges better bring into focus the challenges the continent faces in fighting rape.

South African police say 64,000 rapes were reported in the country last year, in a nation that is often called "the rape capital of the world."

Activists say the problem with this figure, however, is that it likely is wrong. And not just slightly wrong - maybe catastrophically so.

In early November, a top South African think tank questioned the police department's math - saying they used old, lower population figures in calculating its annual crime report, thus skewing the result to make it appear that crime figures have improved more than they have.

Hidden violence


[...]




Stigma attached to commonplace brutality

That's especially clear elsewhere on the continent. Volatile eastern Congo is a veritable minefield of sexual violence. Girls, women, babies, the elderly are frequently run over by marauding combatants - both rebels and government forces - who have been accused of gang-raping, pillaging and murdering civilians. Yet few rape cases ever make it to a courtroom. Victims say the stigma of being raped prevents them from reporting the crime.

Conflict-plagued countries are not the only ones affected. In Kenya, men recently arrested for brutally raping and disabling a teenage girl were ordered to cut grass for their crime, and then released.

190 So it is probably pretty insensitive of me to post this joke here right now, but there you go:


Gay Chip goes into the doctor's office and has some tests run.



The doctor comes back and says, "Chip, I am not going to beat around
the bush, You have AIDS."



Chip is devastated. "Doc, what can I do?"



The doctor says, "I want you to go home and eat 5 pounds of spicy
sausage, a head of cabbage, 20 un-peeled carrots drenched in hot
sauce, 10 Jalapeno peppers, 40 walnuts and 40 peanuts, 1/2 box of
Grapenuts cereal, and top it off with a gallon of prune juice."



Chip asks, "Will that cure me,

Doc?"

"No, but it should leave you with a better understanding of what your

191 Martins: Have you ever seen any of your victims?

Harry Lime: You know, I never feel comfortable on these sort of things. Victims? Don't be melodramatic. Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays.

heard a bbc documentary a few years back and the people interviewed hinted that the muzzies financed, pushed, and executed most of the genocide, but somehow the nyt et al. forgot to report on that aspect.

223 HIV in Africa would be under much better control if the would swallow the anti-retrovirals rather than grinding them up and smoking them - no shit - estimates run as high as 75% that all the free meds for HIV sent to Africa by the West are smoked, sold as antibiotics for colds etc., fed to livestock for some poorly documented reasons, or thrown out as Western Medicine ('Big Parma' I Guess) and the germ theory of disease has not yet been accepted by > 70% of the general population.

Lets face it, it's gonna be an uphill battle when your patients have at least a group TV and cell phone but still shit in the water they drink; think cutting all women's clits off makes them love you more; that rape is the best first date; and your hemorrhoids are caused by a gay sorcerer spelling you into raging Ugandan butt-sex...

295 It's time to destroy Andrew. He is a despicable human being.

My suggestion would be a lawsuit for inciting the action. Pretty sure there would be some right leaning lawyers willing to work pro-bono to test the legal waters here.

Doesn't matter if there is a case or not, just filing and forcing him to defend himself is sufficient to start pushing back.

We need to stop the snarky tweets and posts, and start fighting in ways that punish them economically for their actions.

Wearing baggy sweatpants? Singing old Monkees songs? Seriously, when did corporations get the idea that every employee is a luminous crystal, whose every atom must "reflect" their glory? It's her life and her damn opinion.

351 Can anyone name one good thing that's come from twitter? I only see bad things. Boycotts and cyber mobs form to intimidate corporate sponsors to silence speech. People lose their jobs because of silly crap they've tweeted. It's even helped get Iranians killed when they rose up a few years ago, and Egyptians killed when they rose up more recently. I really can't point to a good thing that's happened in the world because of twitter. Twitter is a work of the devil. A force for evil in the world.
