Mocking a Movement?
Bipartisan politics took another hopeless dive recently. This time the controversy is surrounding a subject that we all should, in theory, be in correspondence with. The "Bring Back Our Girls" movement got underway to bring awareness to the kidnapping of over 250 Nigerian girls by Boko Haram (Islamic militants). Numerous celebrities and public officials have been reaching out on Twitter and other social media networks with the hash-tag "Bring Back Our Girls".
However, everyone is not enthralled by this movement going on within the country. During one fox news interview this was stated:
"I do not know how adults stand facing a camera and say, 'Bring Back Our Girls.' Are these barbarians in the wilds of Nigeria suppose to check their Twitter accounts and say, 'uh-oh Michelle Obama is very cross with us, we better change our behavior?"
Many people see the movement as a stand for right to push the Nigerian government to intensify the search for the missing girls. Unfortunately, this movement has been lost on some. What do you think? Did the Fox News correspondent take this joke just a little too far? Or do you feel the movement is being lost on the celebrity "show"? Let us know!
