In case you decided not to read the article, if you remember that stupid "Cash Me Outside" meme (god I hate having to type that, it only further advances the cancer), you pretty much know the whole story about that stupid teenager who got famous just for making herself look stupid on Dr. Phil (as if she didnt already embarass herself, she had to embarass her family as well, those poor folks).

Well, now for some inanely asinine reason, TV executives have decided that it would be a good idea to give her her own television show. Yes, you read that correctly, you did not suddenly Mandela Effect into an alternative universe. I hope, anyway.

Which brings me to my rant, of how come all the dumb people get famous? I mean for crying out loud it happened to those Jersey Shore oranges, it happened to Kim "I like to display my body for the internet to fap to" Kardashian, and now this stupid B-word gets her own place in the spotlight! How come stupid people seem to attract the attention of TV producers so often?! Is it like a hivemind effect where stupid people are attracted to equally stupid people or something?

Honestly, I can't wait for NASA to accept applications to leave for Mars, because then I can finally leave all the stupid people behind

Because it's funny to watch idiots be idiots. It's not like they're known for anything good, they're known for being idiots you can call that fame if you want.

Yeah, it is, but if I wanna watch idiots i'll watch online fail compilations not an entire TV "Reality Drama" series about some stupid stuck up brat being an embarrassment to the American, no, Human population

Not to bring out the age matters thing(or "ageism" as you might call it) but acting like your above others is pretty stupid and common for our age. But you're not. In fact you're stupid for making this thread.

It's just a MEME. It's funny because we recognize that it's stupid. Do people go to far in their meme worship to the point of unironically acting stupid? Maybe. But then again taking meme culture seriously and acting like a stick in the mud is just as stupid.

And if you want to fight with me over this you can CASH ME OUTSIDE.


It's not that i'm hating on meme culture, don't get me wrong, and i'm certainly not above others (though i'd personally like to think i'm at least smarter than the listed "celebrities" in original post), but it just agitates me to no end when people get something they didn't work for or deserve. This girl absolutely deserves to be meme'd to kingdom come and back again, but the fact she gets her own television program just because of said meme rubs me the wrong way entirely.

Also, it's alright to have an opinion. don't call others "stupid" just for having an opinion.

Honestly, same on that front. The part about the show, not the meme. This is gonna be one of those things I'll grab some popcorn for just to watch it crash and burn in the ratings game.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this: Good for that person. They took advantage of a situation that they were presented with, and acted in a way that generated interest; enough to get a tv show. I'd say that person is pretty damn smart, because they are using the system, knowingly or not.

Just because all that you see is what is presented to you on a screen, does not mean you know the person. For all you know, they could be the next Newton, Beethoven, Mozart, WHATEVER. Is it likely? Not in the slightest. But you never know. Every human is capable of "greatness". Even "Idiots". Einstein was considered a complete failure early in his life. Tesla Was shunned and taken advantage of. He was given a massively hard time, and he knew it. Don't judge a book by its cover.

But Who am I to judge. I'm overly optimistic today.

Ya I was just about to edit that comment because I realized saying you were stupid seemed like a personal attack, and I didn't mean it that way. I just think that this whole attitude I see too often of people acting like the mainstream is so dumb is just pitiful. It's like those people that rant about how stupid america is while being in 9th grade. It's just too ironic how mainstream the hate for memes or stupid television shows are, and yet people project their hatred for it like they're some highly intellectual outsider.

I just think the "i'm migrating to xxx because this stupid cultures" is just a bit over the top. You're not alone in thinking these things, I mean I agree a lot of this stuff is annoying bottom of the barrel entertainment garbage. But you can always enjoy it for what it is, laugh at it, or just ignore it. Most normal people are fairly intelligent, no need to move to Mars

I can't really answer why reality TV shows are so popular, because honestly, I don't think it's mostly stupid people watching them. Almost everyone I've met in this world is of at least average intelligence, and I live in one of the dumbest states in the US. I think people just have their guilty pleasures, or like what they like. No need to be so cynical pal

And i'm overly pessimistic 50% of the time, 100% of the time. But hey, who wouldn't be in this day and age?

Except you, of course. You, and Bill Nye.

And where the hell did Bill Nye come from? I was thinking I was more like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXsQAXx_ao0 today. Whatever. I'll go back to watching my anime.

Eh, what can I say. Cynicality is a way of life for me. Doesn't mean I can't just ignore everyone though And yeah, as much as I joke about migrating to Canada, or maybe Japan, I wouldn't give up on this country for the life of me. Probably. Most likely. Unless, like, it got nuked and I actually had to leave. then yeah. Besides the point.

I do think America is stupid at times, if I denied that then i'd be lying. But there's always some hope that one day we can turn it around. And really thats what keeps me going sometimes, that and the belief that if I die now i'm gonna miss out on all the cool stuff. Also, it's alright, I forgive you for the "stupid" bit. We all go a little overboard sometimes, to er is to be human after all

Lots of dumb people = More views = More cash = More control
They don't want to give us knowledge and power, so they dumb us down and keep us complacent.
Meanwhile the world is falling apart and this is what the majority cares about.
Cue Mr Burns "Excellent"
