Over the weekend I wrote a post I absolutely hate what social media has done to our society.
In it I said:
Today, it feels like one of those westerns where the gunslinger comes to town and pushes everyone around because he’s the quickest draw in territory.
Except in this case it’s the TikToker or Twitter user with thousands or millions of followers who can get their narrative out faster and to more people to murder your reputation online who is the gunslinger in the black coat.
This is the greatest evil of social media.
I hate being so right.
This went viral:

He’s been fired when the woke mob went after his employer. His life is ruined.
Good, he’s an asshole who deserves it, right?
There is a little more to this story.
The wild encounter erupted when an irate Iannazzo returned to the store after earlier ordering a smoothie that supposedly contained peanuts, which caused his highly allergic son to have a reaction and require hospitalization, authorities said.
A remorseful Iannazzo said Monday in a statement that he was “out of my mind with fear” for his son and insisted that he told staff about the peanut allergy when he ordered the drink — despite employees telling cops the father had just asked for no peanut butter.
Iannazzo, who turned himself into cops after the incident, issued a statement Monday saying he made the “regrettable comments” after his 17-year-old son went into “life threatening anaphylactic shock.”
“After he started to drink his smoothie, my son lost the capacity to breathe properly; his lips and face swelled up, and he required an EpiPen shot, but it did not offer him relief. I called 911,” Iannazzo said in the statement.
“My son then went to the bathroom, threw up and fell unconscious to the floor. He threw up again. My wife gave him another EpiPen while I called 911 again.”
Yes, I completely agree that his behavior was unacceptable.
It seems like a bunch of high school girls slack-assing at their job while on TikTok nearly killed his son and sent him to the hospital, then lied to the cops about it.
I’m not saying what dad did was right but I understand.
But you’d never know this because these girls got their video viral and dad doesn’t even have social media on his phone.
If what dad says happened us true I hope he sues the fuck out of everyone including his former employer and wins millions.
