I'm expecting some people to see this as rude and controversial because they've understood me wrongly, but I'm hopeful that some good discussion could come out of this. You all would have heard about Fabrice Muamba's very unfortunate and saddening incident today, and I'm sure all of you were very shocked and upset at the news. Of course, it's a sad incident, and the amount of support he's gotten from the public has been excellent, but it raises an interesting point in my mind. What got me thinking was today, I was on Twitter searching for updates on his condition, and I saw one of (the now many) jokes on Sickipedia - I was following them and so it appeared on my feed (Don't post jokes on here, you will be banned, and I'm not even sure that I should be mentioning their existance - remove this if need be mods). This was made not even 5 minutes into his resuscitation on the pitch, and the backlash it got was extraordinary. Within minutes Sickipedia had lost 15,000 followers, and they were getting major criticism (rightly, of course). However, it made me realise just how fickle and two-faced some people are. Would that same backlash occur if this had happened to someone like Harvey Price, or anyone else commonly seen featured in jokes on their site? Look at the aftermath of Michael Jacksons death - millions of people were devastated, but yet the jokes that appeared about it were lauded as hilarious. Same with Madelline McCann - to this day, jokes are still made about her. But yet, when it's a footballer in serious danger, suddenly it's bad taste and people should be ashamed of themselves? Maybe I'm seeing this wrong, and maybe bringing this up on a football forum is a very bad idea, but it's a ridiculous situation. I can almost guarantee you that had Jordan or Kate Moss or Justin Bieber had dropped down in a public area, or during a concert/TV interview etc, the public support would be at an all time low, and the comments and jokes would be doing the rounds faster than ever. It's majorly hypocritical, and I think a sign of just how fickle some people can be. So ask yourself this - had this same instance occured to a celebrity seen negatively in the public eye, would you care so much? Would you trawl through Twitter hoping for updates? Would you shed a tear in your room while watching the scenes on your TV? Please note that this isn't an attack or thread directed at anyone or anything, and I mean no offence or controversy caused. I'm just airing somethings that I've noticed in the aftermath of today's horrible scenes. Delete this if I've stepped over the mark mods.
