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!!

That is disgusting! What in the right mind gave her that idea? Yuck! I have no idea why people even want to be famous especially for something like that. When she gets older I hope she realizes how dumb that was. I can't think of anything I have done to gain popularity except for just being nice to people. Being popular or known by all is not even close to the top of my priority list.

I had heard about this and think its just crazy. Years from now this girl is going to realization how stupid this was. People who do this obviously lack impulsive control. I have no desire to have internet fame and can only hope I teach dd that its not worth acting stupid to get 15 minutes of fame served up with a lifetime of regret.

There's a link to The Huffington Post in that 2nd article that does have the video. I tried to watch it, but had to stop it before she did "the deed". I couldnt do it. Even from the 1st few seconds of it though, you can tell that she's so desperate for attention...


Quoting Cafe MichelleP:

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



Quoting zetajen:

she eats a tampon? I am not going to watch that.

I only watched it to the point of her putting it in her mouth I almost puked. This is so disgusting I can't believe this. Also, she should have known better to do something better with her life than this. However, I can say I am sorry she had to resort to suicide becuase of this, but she should have done something better with her time. I am not condoning the bullying or what not that she got, but she put that video up and I guess she was expecting positive responses and that is not a video you put up and expect support over.

She won't be getting older, unfortunatly she committed suicide because of the comments on the video

Yea I heard of her n did not see the video. But the one I did see (and I wish I hadn't) was the one of the girl having sex with her dog and putting it in her mouth. The worst thing I've ever seen. It was on face book fyi.
