A few weeks ago a San Fransisco Giant fan went to a ball game at the opposing teams stadium
Said fan was beat unconscious because of being a fan of the rivaled team that played the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Yesterday I was reading my local news app on my phone and see that Rebecca Black, that sings the song Friday that became a You Tube sensation, is receiving threats, because someone wants her song off the internet.
I understand loving a team to the point where you think every other team sucks.
I understand disliking a song, because it isn’t your cup of tea.
But to physically harm someone because of what they like or what they sing?
The man that was beaten is a father, and just wanted to see his team play.
The 13 year old, yes THIRTEEN YEAR OLD, has a dream like every other starry eyed teen, who wants to make it big one day.
I may want the Giants to loose every game played against the Dodgers. Does that mean I want to beat up a fan of the opposing team?
No, because the love the game should mean more to you than who likes what team.
Do I like the song Friday? Honestly, Her genre is just not one I listen to, but many others do.
Do I want harm coming to this teenager? Absolutely not!
She has a dream and I hope she succeeds.
Have a listen! Let’s show her some love even if we don’t care for the song itself.
The man that was beaten at a baseball game is still in critical condition. Let’s pray that he does survive and the men who are responsible are caught!
