NOW THAT’S FUNNY
Remember the days when, after some natural disaster, tasteless jokes would emerge slyly amid work colleagues? Your office mate would close the door and confidentially tell you a bad joke about the tornado or the mudslide, and maybe you would laugh and maybe you would grimace, but you had no idea who the boor was that made up that joke.
Now, thanks to Twitter, we know who all the boorish people are.
Cappie Pondexter, a Rutgers alumni and WNBA star playing for the New York Liberty, tweeted a terribly tasteless comment yesterday, and now she has apologized. In her original tweet, she suggested that the Japanese deserved the earthquake/tsunami. She wrote: “what if god was tired of the way they treated their own people in their own country. idk guys he makes no mistakes.” She later added via Twitter “u just never knw! They did pearl harbor so u can’t expect anything less”.
