If I were to read these tweets without listening to the commentary explaining what they mean, I would not really understand them at all. As someone who doesn’t really keep up with current events, when hearing these things, and hearing people talk about them, I dot really know what thy are talking about.
The first half of the podcast talks about a link between Alex Jones and a NFL advertisement. The saying goes; “Believe in something, even if it means losing everything.” The tagline used was “Believe in something, even if it means the frogs are gay.”
Alex Jones is a very forward with his crazy conspiracy theories, to the point where he even interrupts interviews to fit in his opinions. They talk about some of his theories, one which he talks about the government possibly making a love bomb or a gay bomb, causing people to act homosexually towards each other. Another conspiracy of Jone’s was a chemical release in the rivers, causing the frogs to change genders. Hence the Nike advertisement.
From what I understand of this, everything has some kind of connection with using references. Only understanding little parts, make a bigger picture.
The second part of the podcast talks about The beauty guru community on Youtube. Specifically Jeffery Star. Jeffery Star made some racial comments which he got hate for, and lost followers. However, another Youtuber Gabriel Zamora, who made an apology video actually gained followers for doing so.
Laura Lee said; “I’m not form Alabama, I’m from a small town in Alabama,” and also tweeted about about police brutality. Because of this, her make line to be launched with Ulta was canceled. She then made an apology video that was “fake.” The podcast talked about how she fake cried and did what all basic apology videos do. The exhale and the “I need to tell you guys something.”
As I mentioned before, I don’t really keep up to date on these kind of things. I don’t really care what the the new beauty guru Youtube drama is. However, already knowing small bits of things from what I’ve heard in conversation, I can sometimes piece things together.
