The Viral Curse
While most could see the post was a joke that accidentally went viral, others believed Moss was trying to reap financial gain from others misfortune and suffering. Those who took Moss’ post to heart clearly could not fathom that the post was nothing more than a satirical joke that went too far.
On Sunday morning, Moss posted a screenshot in which he had to explain to one of the many people that disapproved of his services. In response to someone to being told that he was trying to take advantage of people, Moss states two times that the post was a joke.
When we see large groups of people rush these viral posts like starving locusts, words from the late George Carlin come to mind. “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
