I'm Irrationally Annoyed By This Fort Wayne Fan That Pretended To Drink Bleach After They Upset Indiana
It's not that this kid showed up to a college basketball against the #3 team in the nation with the intent of going viral as his number one priority that bothers me. It's not even the fact that he massively succeeded that is pissing me off. After all, how can I hate on college students for whoring themselves by doing dumb shit in search of attention when that is what singlehandedly keeps the internet in business? He wants to draw eyes to him by pretending to drink a toxic chemical agent whose actual ingestion would incinerate his organs? All the power to him. Judging by his looks I may hate the player, but I don't hate his game.
I just need the people that are encouraging this behavior to know that he had ZERO faith in his team when he orchestrated this stunt. This kid had a premeditated scenario planned out in his head, and resigning himself to his team losing by 30+ was absolutely a part of it. I don't think, I know he thought the game was going to be all-but-over, the TV cameras would be scanning the crowd, and they would "just so happen" to catch him chugging "Clorox". I just find it inherently disingenuous that this kid gets the perks of pulling the "look his school is so bad at basketball that it makes that kid want to kill himself!" prank AND the glory of an early season overtime win over a top 5 opponent. The most notorious Fort Wayne fan is one that didn't just think his team was going to lose badly, but had a self promotional online gag set up that he thought required them to lose badly. I don't care that he's getting all the likes, retweets, and shares, but the idea that he gets to do so the morning after a once-in-a-lifetime bender makes me want to put 'Bleach Boy' in a bodybag filled with battery acid.
