"The internet moves from object of hate, to object of hate.
"Perhaps a prime example was Justine Sacco, who after tweeting an ambiguous, clearly satirical message about AIDS that some people interpreted as racist, found herself the subject of an internet hunt — all while she was on an airplane to Africa. By the time she landed, she had been fired from her job, and people tracked her airplane and confronted her at the airport when she landed.

As she walked out to mid-court, Lawrence opened her jacket revealing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt. She dropped to one knee and then sang The Star Spangled Banner, taking this ridiculous and disrespectful protest to a new low.
"There were some boos from the crowd, but sadly most in attendance cheered this travesty." . . .
(Video) ‘Cowards’ Write ‘Kill All Police, Kill James Craig’ On Side Of Detroit Building  “ 'The coward that did this, just know, it’s a matter of time — we’ll find you,” Craig said.
"Craig said that whomever tagged the message might be looking at felony terrorist threat charges.
Holtschneider not only declined to approve the flyers, but sent a letter to the entire university body explaining that the pro-life posters constituted “bigotry” and were not considered free speech.
