Kenneth Tong’s Tweets hits my all time vileness radar to the max
Twitter has been going for just over 6 years and in that time many many wonderful things have been tweeted. Many amazing things have happened as a result of people using Twitter. There has also been many unpleasant things which have occurred through Twitter. Now, I am all for freedom of speech and allowing people a way to communicate their opinions and ideas even when they may be controversial to others. I am also aware of the very recent phenomenon of Trolls appearing on Twitter to abuse celebrities and athletes.
Twitter is a communication tool so amongst all the good tweets, there will be the unsavoury ones. As I have always said, Twitter has rules of service and if people break those rules, then their accounts may well be removed and/or suspended. The Police also have powers to investigate and bring people to justice over racist or malicious tweets. Twitter will even give up the names and details of Twitter accounts when ordered to by a court.
But in all my time on Twitter, just over 4 years, What Kenneth Tong has been tweeting to Gary Barlow is so far off my vile and disgusting radar that it is beyond belief. For those that don’t know, Gary and his wife recently suffered what can only be described as one of the worst things imaginable. After 40 weeks pregnant, Gary’s wife gave birth to a still born child. One cannot imagine how awful that is.
Mr Tong has been Tweeting Gary Barlow. I am not going to write what he has tweeted as they are so awful, vile and disgusting. But will add the screenshots from his account.
And Some more of his vileness
There is more but quite frankly I don’t want to show any more of his tweets. To be frank, I was in two minds to write this blog. It gives Mr Tong exposure, media attention and that is exactly what he wants. But I was so outraged by what he had done that I could not stop myself from wanting to highlight this. Whatever people say about human rights and freedom of speech, this is nothing to do with that. This to me is a total abuse of that right and is exactly NOT what Twitter should be all about.
If I had 2 wishes, it would be that Twitter acted and removed this vile man from Twitter and that all those that follow him currently approx 180,000 stop following him. He craves attention and we should all deny him that. Now, I have no issues with people being controversial. having strong opinions, arguing and defending their views. But please don’t tell me that these tweets have anything to do with that. They are pure and simple evil tweets sent to people that are grieving the death of a child. Mr Tong, hang you head in shame, it takes a lot to upset me, but you have moved my disgusting and vileness gauge of the radar.
