Boise, ID – Local woman Elizabeth McConnell is disturbed that the news out of Charlottesville, Virginia is appearing on her Facebook feed. She claims that her usual steady consumption of pointless, mildly amusing media is being hijacked by current events.
“I am so distraught over this news of racial violence down in Virginia,” says McConnell. “I need my fix of cute kitties, but my friends keep commenting on it, and it’s becoming a distraction. I had to unfriend a few of them that kept going on and on about it. Three posts in a row is too much, and I had to keep scrolling to find a Grumpy Cat or Keep Calm image.”
McConnell says she hopes Americans will follow their usual patterns and ignore the start ignoring the situation by Monday.
