TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! WORD OF KANSAS CITY RESTAURANT ALLEGED HATERATION AGAINST LGBT PATRONS BLOWS UP LOCAL SOCIAL MEDIA!!!
Right now on the local Internets there are thousands of comments, shares and a great deal of speculation about a gay NYC couple visiting Kansas City and then hassled at a local Italian restaurant, allegedly insulted and kicked out.
This post is public for the moment but it should be noted that it DOES NOT name the restaurant in question.
Like it or not, this story represents a weakness of social media inasmuch as people, justifiably, want to comfort their friends rather than think critically about any allegations.
The aftermath is that a lot of people with an ax to grind against a particular restaurant have seized on the opportunity to spread a bunch gossip that makes wild allegations with absolutely no backup . . .
Why is this news???
TKC FAIR WARNING: ONCE AGAIN, IN THE AFTERMATH OF AN ACT OF TERROR, FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE SHOULD BE VERY "SENSITIVE" ABOUT ANY BEHAVIOR THAT COULD BE MISCONSTRUED AS AN ACT OF HATE!!!
In fact, it might be a good idea to be REALLY nice to each other all the time . . . And maybe take Internets chatter with a grain of salt as well.
You decide . . .
