“SOMETIMES THE BEST RESPONSE IS NO RESPONSE AT ALL, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE EXPECTING OUTRAGE!”
This blog post is for all friends and family in the Food Allergy Community. It is meant for educational purposes, a coping but yet awareness to the years of misuse and lack of compassion we have faced for years. The frustration, the anger that arises, actually has been proven to have been done, on purpose. Yes, on purpose. Why let me explain, before you start blasting away on social media because that is what they want you to do.
So please share this if you see a storm rising in the community. They need to stop the tracting because all it is doing is feeding the ratings. That is what they want. Remember act for the community, not for just one self to blowing off steam. It does not help the overall.
When you become aware of this, then we take control of it. Grab it, and say.. not anymore.
That is what we do in our community.
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. Educate others in the community, the new parents just coming on board, the coming of age teenagers, and those compassionate friends and family members who get why allergies are not a joking matter, but guess what, comedians thrive on it, it is their bread and butter. Again, until it hits home, their home. $$$$$
They will use clear ignorance to set off EMOTIONS, this is the bait. What they are missing is how very deadly it can be, since younger people are hearing it, and think it is a joke, then the up-rise of bullying takes place evermore, that has turned deadly in many cases.
COMMON OFFENDERS : ABC NETWORK – MANY OF THEIR TV SHOWS AND LATE NIGHT SHOWS /SONY/CONTROVERSIAL & CABLE NEWS MEDIA /CLICK BAIT NEWS MEDIA – (THEY WANT YOU TO COME TO THEIR PAGE. TO SEE WHAT THEY ARE SELLING…)
Social Media Pages, Instagram, Facebook… all of them… Yes, they want you to get mad, really mad, come and visit they just need you to give a “Click”
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUSINESSES, LOCAL SMALL SHOPS THAT WANT TRACTION… WHO CANNOT AFFORD MARKETING.… A read flag.. look at their prior post traction. Maybe 7 to 10 likes. 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. Most of the time it is just that, a Facebook post.
Why let emotions, drive and carry their profits. DO NOT LET IT.. PRIVATE MESSAGE THEM IF YOU NEED to blow off steam, 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 as what it is ” Click bait” AND RAISE THE AWARENESS.
Remember, overall after so many years, and loss of our loved ones we have spent years, educating others of the risks. How deadly things can turn, within minutes. So please remember, there are a lot more compassionate people than the paid trolls that are commenting to help the post or story to get traction.
We are all aware of paid, trolls by now. So if you see confrontations within the community, please just private message them to just “IGNORE” the trolls, if not they will get paid.
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. “THEY ARE A TROLL” So you are raising awareness for the next community member, not to share or comment.
If you would like, just paste this blog post. It is here for the community to use to raise the awareness and to stop the community from being used.
AS FOR HOLLYWOOD, ADD THEM TO THE KNOWN ABUSERS just 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. They are grasping at every area to raising controversy to bring in a curious eye, to all of the hysteria they planted. It is at a level of all time high, not just using our community, but they use many other “emotional” triggering areas. They know what they are doing. So that, should bring in the break lights, to saying “WE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND WE ARE NOT FEEDING INTO IT”
So again, please do not buy into social media hysteria, that is what they want.
Write DIRECTLY to the writers, if it feels personal, then personally take the time to respond. 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 and it has to stop.
News will cover a boycott, because they are they are part of the PR source. They will cover the story for them to get the controversy a push as well. So do not feed into it either. Leave it alone. In time, it will stop. Let them find a different focus, not our community.
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, we do to raise awareness does NOT go without. It makes so many changes, not only for our community but for all. Safer ways, inclusion for all, awareness.
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. If they are a repeat offender the only way they will stop is to ignore the ignorance. Period. No traction at all. It is discrimination. 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.
- 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.
- Educate others on the legal ramifications, due to their actions.
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.
Some examples of past violators, for those that are new to this…
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 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.
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…. Now that is just the best entertainment I would love to watch… lol….
Be Aware, Be prepared, EPI FIRST and FAST, Carry Two, Call 911 … Understand how time matters.
Blessings and Love…
