A slow clap moment, as yet another shit of a headline assaults my eyes.
That’s LOW man…
“So what exactly is wrong with it?” Some might ask.
Well true, it’s a perfectly legitimate highlight of what the writer thinks is the most eye catching aspect of the story.
If you are a jerkwad.
I’d think the drunken misconduct of the deceased would be overshadowed by the fact that the poor man was later pinned under a bus, in a foreign land, with a family back in India.
But I suppose no one stripped further in the chaos, so it’s not headline worthy.
It’s as though by revealing his behaviour to the world, the headline expects us to nod our heads and say he deserved it.
Or are Stomp readers that hungry for salacious details, that one simply cannot allow a pant dropping incident to go unnoticed?
We should also stop and think about what this headline is implying. What type of prejudice it is trying to reinforce in our heavily judgemental society.
Mr Sakthivel Kumaravelu is a victim in a fatal accident.
He did not instigate the riot.
He was drunk and wanted to get back to his dorm.
He deserves a lot more than such a headline that does nothing but humiliate him for a couple of likes from…say it with me now: “JERKWADS.”
