This is more of an attack on the hordes of right-wingers who go around all day laughing at (rightly so) at left-wingers who get butthurt for all sorts of shit, spamming online forums, posting bullshit in acts of defamation, to ruin somebody's reputation (like the fabricated Avenatti story, he's done now). If they don't do it themselves, they at least support such acts. But the second somebody on their alt-right side gets called out, they start crying instantly.
Yeah, this shit went viral. You obviously can't just blame Washington Post. Then you should sue the millions of retards on Twitter, Twitter, Facebook, Google++ Also all the alt-right sites who shared the news. They may have supported him wearing a MAGA hat, but they still made sure more and more people heard about the incident, and formulated their opinions on the matter.
Does the kid deserve all that online hate? OF COURSE FUCKING NOT. But claiming he deserves 250 mill, where he can live the rest of his life on a fucking beach castle, is just so good old american bullshit.
