The Twidiocy: Hashtagging Raveena

We all grieve in our own way, and hacks still reeling from the death of Toronto Star reporter Raveena Aulakh celebrate her life by making it all about their tiresome selves.

We join the social media circle tear-jerk already in progress. Egregious Toronto Sun drivellist Joe Wormington, nose cold but still a lustrous brown in this post-Rob Ford world, sits a pud-stroking vigil in hopes of leveraging Raveena’s suicide to score some hits on Hizzonner’s tormenters at One Yonge.

The very future of mainstream media could be at stake over this story I think. #Ripraveena

‪@joe_warmington#scum You are a fucking moron. And a dreadful writer. None worse. You’re exploiting tragedy out of malice. Shameless.

@AureliaCotta@RaveenaAulakh@RDiManno I won’t stop fighting for Raveena no matter who swears at me, threatens my job or calls my boss.

This is cheap voyeurism. ‪@joe_warmington et al want to turn it into a salacious major media cause. ‪#pathetic

@ToddBiddle@joe_warmington Oh just becuz Joe does not go with the herd of MSM media, he has independent thought & can think for himself????

@Marlon_Brando11‪ @joe_warmington Oh hush. Joe is disgraceful. He isn’t doing anything but making noise. He’s not respecting her death.

If they won’t do tribute obit on incredible ‪@RaveenaAulakh I will. Please send thoughts via email. Please put me in touch with her grandmom

@joe_warmington@RaveenaAulakh Joe. If you even looked on her Twitter feed, you’ll know that her grandmom died. It’s pinned at the top.

‪@joe_warmington‪ A disgrace to yourself, your paper, your profession. You write endlessly about “scum”. Take a look in the mirror.

‪@RDiManno‪ I think you are talking about yourself #ripraveena. Do you even care about her?

‪@joe_warmington‪ How fucking dare you? Come here and say that. I’ll rip your fucking throat out.

    Doolittle tweets that this a tragic story hijacked by rumors.
    Can rumors hijack?

    “You are a fucking moron. And a dreadful writer.” You’ve got to love Rosie.

  3. gormab says:

    And, “The very future of mainstream media could be at stake over this story …” You’ve got to agree with her.

    I think I smell an opportunity here.
    Media Wind Therapist.
    I’ll start a 12-step group.
    Call it ‘It’s Not About You Anonymous’.
    Like a caduceus group for journalists.
    It’ll be a challenge finding a church basement big enough to fit all those egos.

    I have respected my friend Raveena Aulack’s request for silence on her death. But she would have been appalled by the lies being told. 1/3

    On the issue of the Worm, I concur, for once, with Rosacea. I understand the Union is singularly unimpressed with the Ministry of Truth’s version and are asking for an impartial inquiry. Never forget that it was the Satirical Press that broke this story.

    And in my anger I managed to misspell Aulakh in my first tweet. She would have laughed at me.
