It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: What Would You Do For Internet Fame?

                                    Warning: Graphic Topic! (Video NOT included)

                         Welcome to Mom To Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

                               What would you do for fifteen minutes of Internet fame?
    This past week,15 year old Giovanna Plowman posted a truly disgusting video of                       herself to You Tube, all in the hopes of gaining Internet notoriety.
                 Before you can say feminine hygenie products, the video goes viral
                                               and Giovanna is a YouTube hit.
        I have to wonder if fleeting Internet fame is worth a lifetime of being known as
                   the girl who ate the used tampon or as she is being referred to
                                               on social media,"Tampon Girl".


  1. Before today, had you heard about "Tampon Girl"?
  2. Why do you think people are willing to go to extreme lengths to gain internet 'fame' or popularity?
  3.  What is the most extreme thing you or your child have done in the name of popularity?                    

                                                                                             

While you share your thoughts with us be sure to let us know what you
would like us to serve you!!

I would never degrade myself or stoop to extreme lows for some internet fame.  That is just disgusting.  If I get to be well known, I would like it to be for the good I've done in the world.

I couldnt watch it either. The link is to an article, but not to the video.


Quoting zetajen:

I would never do anything for Internet fame. I could give 10 craps about being famous.

No and I wish it had stayed that way lol

because people are bored with nothing better to do in their own mind

I was never popular and my kids are to little to know. So I apprently never did anything drastic or anything that worked anyway lol
