The Vulgarity Of The Likes of Roseanne and Samantha Bee Is Fueled By Social Media Culture 6/4/2018 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

What Roseanne said on Twitter is indefensible. I’m no fan of Valerie Jarrett, but personal attacks are always wrong no matter the person it’s aimed at. Disagree with her on politics, but going after someone’s look is just low.

Samantha Bee, a person I’ve never thought is funny, as with Roseanne went not only too far, but went into the gutter by calling Ivanka Trump the “C-word.” I understand you don’t like the Trump family, but calling her a vulgar term doesn't help your cause and is really disgusting.

Twenty, maybe even ten years ago, what Samantha Bee said would’ve never aired on basic cable but it’s 2018, and there is very little decency left in the world, especially in the media.

You can argue many different ways why our pop culture is as vulgar as it is now, and probably all of your arguments would be correct, but I believe one main reason our culture is as vulgar as it is now is because of social media.  

If you browse Twitter, you’re gonna see a lot of hate, a lot of vulgar, a lot of disgusting and degrading language and perversion. It’s not just Twitter. You can add Facebook, Snapchat, and all the rest.

The decline of our culture can be correlated to the rise of social media. These platforms have allowed people to say horrible things and not be held accountable for it. It was only a matter of time until this mindset influenced the rest of our pop culture as well.
