The Worst Tweets About the Seaside Fire

When people do asinine things, you have two options: ignore them, or call them out via full-on public shaming.

I choose the latter.

From across the country to storied newscasters in our area, a lot of people had some downright stupid, tasteless, and insensitive things to say about the fire along the Seaside Park and Seaside Heights boardwalks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


It shouldn’t have to be said, but those buildings represent more than what some may have seen on MTV. They are people’s livelihoods, their histories, and their entire summer’s hard work.

Maybe think about it before you make a joke, because for a lot of people this is far from funny.

Consider the people working in all of those buildings who have now lost their sole source of income. Consider the couples who were planning to get married over the next few weeks and months at The Sawmill. Consider the HOMES nearby that caught fire from burning embers.

And THINK before you tweet, Facebook, or say something dumb.

Thank you to all the first responders who worked tirelessly to put out the fire and keep it from spreading further. Your work is greatly appreciated by so many of us here at the Jersey Shore.
