Remember this post?
There’s a classic example of that kind of thing right here. Most of the comments are shockingly insensitive, even cruel. They are either insinuating nasty things about Brittanee, blaming her mother for not supervising her enough, or actually accusing her mother of involvement in her disappearance.
One comment: Usually, parents with missing children won’t even face the thought that their child may be deceased, let alone say it publicly at this early stage of the search. Things don’t add up is right, and it’s with the moms behavior. Um, no. I can guarantee I’ve read a lot more about moms of missing kids than you, and there is no “normal” way for them to act, and some of them do face the worst possibilities even this early on. Other commenters say she must be involved because “she does not seem all that upset” and doesn’t sob hysterically in front of the camera. As if there was some manual on how parents are supposed to behave in these situations!
I don’t know a thing about the Brittanee Drexel case — I usually don’t start following missing person cases until they’re old enough to make my site — but people have no business saying such hurtful things like this in a public forum. Sometimes I just want to find these people and smack them, I swear.
