Alicia Ann Lynch’s Halloween Costume Ignites Rage
I don't know Alicia Ann Lynch. I don't know what she was thinking when she picked her costume for Halloween. But I do know that she is an absolutely horrible person for even thinking for one millisecond that she made the right choice with her Halloween costume.
Alicia Ann Lynch of Michigan picked an outfit that not only earned her the wrath of the internet but also apparently got her fired from her job. On Halloween, Alicia Ann Lynch tweeted a photo of herself smiling as she wore running gear with fake blood and bruises on her face, arms and legs. She was dressed as a victim of the Boston Marathon bombings.
It didn't take long before Twitter erupted with hateful comments and attacks. Alicia had to deactivate her Twitter account, tweeting “Plz stop with the death threats towards my parents. They did nothing wrong. I was the one in the wrong and I am paying for being insensitive.”
Buzzfeed reported Alicia Ann reopened her account to beg for mercy. She claimed she lost her job, and pleaded with the online mercenaries to spare her mother and father.
I'm not a vengeful person. I believe in "live and learn" but in this case, I absolutely agree with the backlash that Alicia Ann has received, however I don't believe the death threats are necessary.
What do you think about Alicia Ann Lynch's choice for a Halloween costume?
