A number of “politically incorrect” statements have resulted in major consequences for people across the country. Many of the remarks on social media were directed at the attendees of the recent Women’s March.
According to the New York Post, Indiana state Rep. Jim Lucas (R), posted a photo of a woman sprayed in the face with pepper and captioned it: “PARTICIPATION TROPHIES. NOW IN LIQUID FORM.”
Indiana State Sen. Jack Sandlin said President Donald Trump got “more fat women out walking than Michelle Obama did in 8 years.”
Comments like these have many people outraged, including Indiana, Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma who, according to the New York Post, is now holding social media tutorials for lawmakers. He was also put blame on Trump for this social media epidemic.
“[Trump] makes people feel this is an appropriate vehicle to communicate. We’re elected officials, we’re held to a higher standard,” he said.
Another school board member in Illinois resigned after he referred to the women dressed up as vaginas (literally) at the Women’s March as “vagina screechers” on Twitter.
The New York Post reports incidents like this have happened in Mississippi, Rhode Island, New Mexico, and Nebraska.
But Republicans aren’t the only ones taking to twitter with remarks like these. A liberal Saturday Night Live producer was suspended after insulting 10-year-old Barron Trump on her Twitter account. The nasty comment greatly upset many people who threatened to boycott the show altogether. Not to mention the Hollywood celebrities like Madonna who said she wished she could “blow up the White House” live on television.
It would appear that insults have become the new “opinion” from both parties.
