Read over the weekend that a character from a TV show was fired because of something he tweeted long before he was even cast for the role.

A role he’s had for several years now.

If it was something he recently tweeted that was offensive I’m all for the firing. But to fire someone for remarks made on a social platform 5-6 years before they were even hired doesn’t make any sense.

Society is really becoming f’ed up right now. And it’s sad, the people deep diving into other’s social posts are no angles. Most of these nefarious “hall monitors” are just vindictive and hateful and they will look for anything to discredit someone.

Why?

The media has given these “social media watch dogs” the power of voice. If they can get enough media attention for their little crusade and get someone on a TV show fired…well, that just further fuels their domineering dick-ish behavior.

When does it end?

Will we the users of such social platforms need to sanitize our thoughts before posting, or scrub and delete posts that are more than a week old? Or should we just continue to hope and pray that someone just sitting around with nothing better to do doesn’t go deep diving into our past social life?

Honestly, we can’t post anything anymore without offending someone. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but social media posts will get us fired.
