“SOMETIMES THE BEST RESPONSE IS NO RESPONSE AT ALL, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE EXPECTING OUTRAGE!”
I AM ATTEMPTING TO EDUCATE THE FA COMMUNITY ABOUT MEDIA THAT RAISES KNOWN CONTROVERSY FOR FREE TRACTION AND MARKETING. I am keeping a log of the offenders and this might be a long blog post so, apologizes in advance, but giving the history to the new population unaware. I will keep it up for that purpose and in hopes when triggers of emotions take place and our flight or fight response is triggered please be aware with your step forward knowing why it keeps happening. We can still respond but more aware.
If we keep responding and bringing attention as they want, it will never end. Take it offline not online. Online response and outrage is what they want. Just a day of traction is all they need. Offline means, in private groups not theirs. Most important tell the community NOT to respond and bring awareness that purpose… less traction the better…. if they see someone sharing it, stop them… or tell them why…. privately organize…
If we keep reacting the same way, they will keep doing it.
EMOTIONS ARE THE TRIGGER WHEN CLEAR IGNORANCE IS USED AS THEIR BAIT.
ABC NETWORK – MANY OF THEIR TV SHOWS AND LATE NIGHT SHOWS.
CONTROVERSIAL NEWS MEDIA – THEY WANT YOU TO COME TO THEIR PAGE. TO SEE WHAT THEY ARE SELLING… THAT IS IT..
CLICK BAIT NEWS MEDIA – YES THIS INCLUDES MAINSTREAM MEDIA AS WELL.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUSINESSES, LOCAL SMALL SHOPS THAT WANT TRACTION… WHO CANNOT AFFORD MARKETING…. Look at their prior post traction… What most miss is, by the time one day of hysteria is done by sharing within the community WE have opened it to a larger population. We have a lot more members then a guy turning burgers in a business he knows is failing. 1 to a few million? Keep it contained… don’t share. Copy and paste and remove names to stop others from being directed there. Do not share their post! Most of the time it is just that, a Facebook post.
So again, THEY ARE HANGING FROM THEIR LAST LIMB… AVOID DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM. THINK ABOUT IT……. THEY CANNOT AFFORD ADVERTISEMENT CANNOT IMAGINE THE QUALITY OF THAT BURGER… or other ingredients used to shortcut due to lack of funds. Everyone should be concerned even non FA community… to doing anything with these places.
EMOTIONS DRIVE AND CARRY THEIR SMALL ACTION AS FAR AS YOU ALLOW IT… DO NOT LET IT.. PRIVATE MESSAGE THEM IF YOU NEED. BUT DO NOT SHARE IT ! THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT…..
IF IT DOES NOT SOUND RIGHT AND IT IS CLEARLY WRONG – TALK AMONG YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. DO NOT COMMENT ON IT. DO NOT SHARE IT. FLAG IT IN THE COMMUNITY AND RAISE THE AWARENESS.
REMEMBER MOST PEOPLE ARE AWARE AND ARE COMPASSIONATE TO THE RISKS. ONLY TROLLS ARE NOT. SO AVOID THE CONFRONTATIONS. SNIFF IT OUT, LOOK AT WHAT THEY ARE SELLING, AND IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO COMMENT… POST EXACTLY THAT. RAISE AWARENESS FOR THE COMMUNITY NOT TO SHARE OR COMMENT.
YOU ARE ONLY DEBATING WITH PAID FOR MEDIA TROLLS. AS FOR HOLLYWOOD, ADD THEM TO THE KNOWN ABUSERS and STOP WATCHING. READ ON HOW YOU CAN USE THEIR MARKETING TO FOSTER REAL AWARENESS AT THE END OF THIS BLOG.
Most of the movies and television shows in America have degenerated to such a level that they are no longer watchable for people with a conscience. They are grasping at every area to raising controversy to bring in a curious eye, to all of the hysteria they planted. You will see those that need attention use our food allergy continuously due to their failed lazy writing. Would take much talent to ever bring in a character that faces such daily.
Do not buy into social media hysteria, that is what they want. Write DIRECTLY to the writers, personally. Reach out to sponsors, to raise your concerns, they are paying for such. Understand they want our community to raise traction for free advertising and marketing.
I know it can be really hard, to not defend as we see others being torn apart on a message board, but just send them a message to raising them to this awareness.
This is a learning since we all fall into our emotions. I fall all the time when I see someone being bullied for defending and attempting to raise the risks, but understand they are not listening. Most are paid for trolls as we have seen for years now, in news/media articles web pages, that run a story, the comments right away to bring in traction, this yes is the same. They have grown outwardly onto twitter and facebook on public posts.
The level of anger first comes over me, then the rush to get out all the known petitions, not even knowing who created them. Now, stepping back to see what really is going on. We have raised our concerns over and over, so why do they keep doing such? Traction, marketing, free social media traction so many in the community of 15 million tune in. Ratings! So I stop in my tracks and say, the advocating needs to be letting others in the community to understanding this. So many family members I see grandparents, bless their hearts that do not realize as much as we do. Getting ripped apart on social media since they comment on web pages, but attacked by paid trolls. There to doing just that, bless their hearts. So I just leave a message telling them what is going on to stop the traction, one by one. It seems people are just learning about trolls, when we in our community have been battling them for over 10 years or so now on paid to click news pages that print a controversial allergy story.
Secondly, the “use” of food allergies as a weapon, BULLYING or as a punchline, is the problem and should not be used as a marketing campaign. After it takes place there is a cycle each time. We all rush out to defend, to stop what will carry over towards our kids the next few days since media just reached millions, with a few lines. I see after such takes place, more parents in our community groups saying bullying has picked up. Always. So bring awareness to the teachers or caregivers that are surrounding so they are aware of possible events. Not everyone is circled in as a FA parent.
Finally, yes we all have a lot more advocating we all feel when these outbursts take place, but understand, all of the hard work that you do has made so many more aware, than those few paid trolls. So do not feel down. We all yes, have to stop from our advocacy to deal with these ignorant, very lazy writing methods by Hollywood, media etc. The steps that I follow are :
- Breathe Deeply
- Do go to our groups to see if others need help to breathing through it. Understanding of the true purpose.
- Post this to them in hopes they follow to writing to the network, and writers and sponsors- privately!
- head over to social media and do the same to help those having a twitter storm with trolls to raise this awareness, and leave awareness posts ONLY.
- Wait for a quick reply from the networks that they will stop to defuse. I personally, do not care for apologizes, it does not stop them. There are repeat offenders as we know. If they realized the cycle that the kids face during each joke, maybe they will stop. If we do not buy into the social media controversy they will stop.
- If no quick reply, boycott their sponsors as well. Ask family and friends in private groups, private messages and via email or during personal one on ones to share such and organize. Example: So next Thursday I will be planning a get together so no one has time to tune in to Roseanne. Remember, think outside the box, but remember to avoid giving them social media traction. So do not call your local news.. thanks…
- DO NOT SHARE THEIR POSTS…….. PRIVATE MESSAGE THOSE THAT HAVE FALLEN FOR THE MARKETING SCAM, ASK THEM TO REMOVE IT.
I take to blogging what I have learned to advocate in the community I share it and I always hope others know they can always share, that is why I do it.
I then say prayers for Blessings and Love… We will need it for the rest of this … blog post. Reliving old events can re-stir those emotions, so stop here if you are aware. No need we made it through and all is safe, right….
***WARNING PHOTO AND CONTENT MIGHT RAISE EMOTIONS FROM HERE FORWARD. NO NEED TO READ FORWARD IF YOU MIGHT HAVE A RESPONSE TO GRAPHIC PHOTO AND POSSIBLE CONTENT THAT MIGHT RAISE EMOTIONAL RESPONSES****
So to all of those unaware to factual risks. those who post “what the big deal” “its just a joke”, “lighten up”,”we do not care if you have a child with such” who dropped by to read this.
This is what ANAPHYLAXIS did to my angel Joseph. He is now an angel, my baby..within minutes…. There is no cure, the only response is to act fast and be prepared with knowing the signs and proper medication that is not a guarantee and time is so very important to having it administered “properly” . it must be given fast and first. Epi is not a saving 100% rescue, it only allows time to have professional emergency care with HOPES that it was given in time for that. Put yourself there, just for a moment.
So don’t turn your heads when I say, it is not okay to use anaphylaxis as a punchline, or teaching kids and others it is okay to threaten another with such illness. No one is asking anything more than that when you mention in your movies and television shows more than that. Maybe start to raising the awareness on the risks of death, or the risks of jail by harming another intentionally. Teen charged . Educate your children.
If you would like to discuss this face to face. I am always available. Most just hide behind the keyboard. So lets talk, would you? Think before you post. If not me, it will be another reading your comments that might have a family member living with this life taking illness. Would you still comment that way? Most that are posting unkind comments are paid trolls so why waste your energy and time. There are articles out there that can help you identify them, the first red flag is the controversy… of clear ignorance and hate. Here is an example how they make money and work.
I am posting this here if you are an unaware reader, you are now aware.
So some history for those that again are just becoming aware of how long this has been happening and it is not new, and ideas to help. Again, breath knowing you are safe, since you are aware why it is taking place. I am sure you understand the point behind this blog and no need to read further, if it might upset you because it is all the same as the post that brought you here to read this anyway.
I copied and pasted prior events that lead me to this blog.
It is to keep all safe, even the unaware (those who do not have a FA child). How being a solid role model might help their child. There are laws against harassment. The internet has give a platform to those whom would never say half of what they do if fave to face.
Most would slow down to not comment if friends and family might have a loved one facing, because unknown to you, your child has approximately 1-2 classmates the spend each day.
Bullying with food as a weapon….
Yes, it is a cycle after these events like I stated, so we need to make sure it is important to share with teachers and others in the community to pay a little more attention and be on higher alert due to the event, that bullying might arise within the next few weeks because of such. I watched many parents posting in Food allergy groups of more frequent events after Roseanne aired. One parent stating their child as we know our children are isolated during lunch to their own tables, that kids had been throwing peanut shells at the table. How I address parents that state it is not their problem, I tell them no it is, and why our concerns are for their family too. Everyone becomes the victim, and I attempt to tell those not aware that we are in fact helping their children too. That starts with knowing how deadly Anaphylaxis is! When kids see movies or t.v. shows about food being used as weapons, do they realize FACTUAL THE RISKS and yes your kids will go to jail. Period. Yes, jail. So how much is learned from these movies and t.v. shows pushing the use of such deadly force. So are you educating others of these risks of being charged with a crime? Here is a recent case of a Teen charged . Educate your children. We all know how that show turned out! Karma finds its way, dont it, it did not take long before that energy they made so many arguing about they had to face among themselves.
Everyone has their cause, everyone has their views but overall Food Allergies are a disability protected by laws. Anyone that bullies threatens or harasses another, in fact, is breaking the law. Anyone that attacks purposely, regardless of method yes, is breaking the law.
So why the Peter Rabbit hysteria, using food as a weapon. The new movie segment featured the intentional attack of the McGregor character with the food he is allergic to – the implication being that the rabbits wanted to “kill”.
So when something new that gets the highest ratings, you would think why would they need the jokes. It is like an insurance policy to raise traction, marketing, such as we seen from a “kid” saying he will “take out” another kid that had been bullying him, with trail mix, on #Roseanne, bad marketing…and a total disconnect from reality of day to day, real lives, current environments and surroundings. You have to think when was the last time they actually stepped out into real life and not drama 101.
They completely missed the mark on the lesson to help the next. Two wrongs, one deadly, that would only leave two victims. One that did not know how very deadly, Anaphylaxis was in minutes, to the other never ever to recover and facing possible death within minutes, as we have seen just happen recently.
The marketing campaign is to “bring middle age families” back to television, but we can see that they can bring the chaos just not ANY awareness of ANY current generational issues. The writers are clearly incompetent to be able to offer such to help the next with awareness. Even having the child bring a knife to school. I say “kudos” the writers of Roseanne, for their contributions of ignorance towards issues facing today and for making it very clear that it is impossible, at all attempts, to connecting with middle-class America at all. They just show the lack of awareness of current generation REAL events. You cannot bring much awareness if you have not walked in the shoes… I challenged the writer to bring a character with such in each letter I write. They cannot do it, it is to hard for them to write.
So why does this keep happening and is it just Hollywoods incompetence? Really … Cartoons??? as kids are watching?
This isn’t the first time that elite Hollywood has used food allergies to raise controversy knowing our outrage if not in the correct method. It is children’s lives. We have been featured in many other segments, NEVER for advocating the seriousness but to raise the controversy cycle, to raise emotions. Emotion raises hysteria to gain traction. Let me say that again, just in case I have not been clear… What is with Hollywood and their agenda against kids… not just this cause… but many? Makes me personally question how anyone can support a box office ticket purchase… ever? No thank you….
What a joke, they ARE! Failing comedians…
A 10-minute comedy routine, viewed by millions outside our community gets the wrong message. Feels like a smack in the face. Let’s smack them back, by exposing them and educating our group members of this common way of use. turn it off! how many networks are on your tv, block that one… write to your cable company why, tell others privately to do the same.
We are many. The less we pay attention and tune in the fewer ratings. The fewer products we purchase. All that matters.
To the most repeated offender and network… has to go to the one that sold his soul.. .a,k.a Jimmy.
Karma is Karma, yes that means even if your acting your sending out what might come back… Universal Law, Universal Studios, you know what I mean… this is just a repeated offender even after he faced his own childs suffering… ?? How?? I think we all felt and prayed regardless, did it stop him… no..he did it again….. over and over… even brought it to unsafe levels for those around him by his lack of awareness… do you know how many had to leave this event…. at the Emmys by becoming a spoke person for health care rights. As many of us will always view him now as a Mouthpiece for the elite advertising NOTHING MORE. Turn him off! Tell your friends and relatives turn him off. Fewer ratings less money, less his bosses will make him use our community. Let him sell his soul another way. I feel bad for them, that they have to sell out against their own morals. He is not the only one, so keep a note to those that are repeaters like him. Such as Sony, ABC network is another… I would never watch another Emmy from that day forward….
Let us not forget George Lopez, as he became the Mouthpiece to advocate himself, within the same routine again, to build attention to his cause, he used the food allergy community. Notice in his video below, the controversy then his cause… how many would of watched if the controversy was not there first? Understand, you can raise your voice and more people will agree if you do not attempt to harm along the way by showing your intent. He pretty much takes away million people to tune out before he even gets to his cause in hopes for traction once the word gets out on social media. Not the first time he has hit rock bottom unfortunately.
So remember, let the larger Advocacy groups write into the networks. We will do the same, BUT know… you are now all aware of why… this keeps happening and the ONLY way for it to stop is limiting the traction. So avoid the hysteria…
I do hope this was informative to you all, and please feel free to sharing… we are all here together…. lets kick them in the pockets… and tune them out… if we stop yelling…. only the trolls are fighting among themselves…. that is just the best entertainment I love to watch… lol….
They will be left with no real traction and it will shows in their ratings…. so ignore the likes and comments…its the true show… the truth shows in their pockets… !!!!! have more fun looking at their ratings after we ignore them… it will stop if we help it too…
Blessings and Love…
