KANSAS CITY TALKER SCOTT PARKS DEACTIVATES HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT AFTER FRUSTRATION WITH HATERS!!!



A bold social media move from one of the top ranking personalities in the Kansas City metro radio takes aim at Internets bullying.

To wit . . .

KMBZ TALKER SCOTT PARKS FLEW THE COOP FROM TWITTER AFTER YEARS OF ONLINE ATTACKS!!!

Here's his statement . . .

Scott Parks: "After months of being told to go kill myself, that I suck at being a human being, that I am an embarrassment to my family and others, that Trump is a god, that I need to run into traffic....I deactivated my Twitter account today. The hate, anger, and mean-spiritness it has become in the last two years was too much to take. Have a great day everyone. Peace."

Like it or not, this kind of decision hurts Twitter in the long run as the social media giant struggles to build a better image and control attacks against users.

Mr. Parks is no shrinking violet and he is accustomed to tough talk, debate and discussion . . . If he's willing to forgo the publicity benefit that Twitter provides in lieu of ridding himself of haters, then other local personalities might be soon follow his lead.

Developing . . .

Agree with 8:09. Not like Scott Parks was above ad hominem fact free accusations. Perhaps he needs a safe space.

Parks paying the crybaby. Obvious he can defend his hatred of the President or his flip flopping on most of his beliefs.

I'm with him on Trump.

Interesting that someone who makes their living INTENTIONALLY antagonizing people with rhetoric, hyperbole and distateful talk can dish it out but can't take it.

Years ago I turned off my radio to avoid hearing him or any of the other trash from talk radio. Such infantile banter has NO value in our society. Least of all should anyone think if it as "entertaining".

Parks, you reaped what you sowed.

As have O'rielly, Beck etc

Parks should have been fired from KMBZ for the shit he said on twitter. I stopped listening and following him and KMBZ for his hatred. He is an unbalanced idiot.

There's a reason Twitter hasn't been able to make a business plan work. Facebook is a big time-sink. Twitter is worse.

If you can't take the heat, Scott, it's wise to vacate the kitchen. May I also suggest a vacation from the liquor cabinet? Thanks. ;)

I called Parks out on twitter plenty of times. Called him a drunk (He is). Asked him about his relationship with JBJB and his house in Western Shawnee so he can be close to his kids in Mill Valley district.

If he can't take the heat...

What happened to her?

What is an old man doing on Twitter any way. If you're a talk show host you are a entertainer,You are not a journalist. You do your show leave the studio and stay off social media. You won't have to worry about haters .PARKS ITS 5 O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE.

^^^ EXCELLENT POINT!

Retro nails it. Parks is to old to be playing the hurt kid on the Internet.

Talk radio treads light authorized opinions if you laid out what the reality of events there's too many hurt feelings

To the posters who claim that a person is weak because they can't take the constant beat-downs from the internet bullies -- even the hardest rock will crack from the constant drip-drip-drip of water. Most of the aggressive haters on Twitter don't have anything constructive to say. They just want to pile on with your standard profanity and hate speech. Hate begets hate.

I quit paying any attention to that show years ago.

If the guy had any real clout he would be canceling his account b/c he found a dead cat in his snail mail box.

@4;23PM...from what I could gather from word on the street. JBJB was tired of Scott's drinking. It got too much for her. If you ever listed to his show Scott admits he likes a few drinks after work. Well, over the years a few drinks became a lot to the point that she dumped him when they were close to closing on that house.

Parks talked about this house all the time for at least a month and a half. Then all of a sudden all references to his new home and JBJB were gone. He never brought them up again. Also around the same time he decided to stop drinking.

Many at KMBZ were happy about this because they were tired of Parks drinking as well. Word on the street is that sometimes you could smell booze on Parks when he came to work. But because he was there for so long no one confronted Parks about it.

Parks has been an alcoholic for years. He used to admit it on the air.

His show is actually pretty good if you can get past him being kind of douchey and Dana's love of abortion

Who is JBJB?

@10:03AM. That's Parks now Ex-girlfriend that he almost got a house with. He mentioned her all the time on his show. Then all of a sudden never brought her up again. Well it's because she dumped him because of his alcoholism.

Does he still live in Mission? I saw him or some guy who looked like him in a Mercedes at Hyvee recently.

Apparently, the douchebag hasn't figured out there are multitudinous reasons to hate him. Perhaps, if he looked in a mirror he would figure that out, change his ways and find fewer reasons to climb in a bottle.
