#MeToo Movement Named Person Of The Year By ‘Time’

Let's hear it for the hashtag! Give me a break.

In a ridiculous virtue signaling pat-on-the-back, Time Magazine names the twitter born #MeToo movement as Person of the Year.

In the wake of revelations about Harvey Weinstein and various other overpaid Hollywood elitists, millions have shared their stories about being sexually harassed and assaulted. #MeToo quickly became the newest useless form of social action that really accomplishes little more than promoting awareness and showing your personal support – like changing your Facebook profile image after a terror attack.

The announcement was made Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” show, where longtime hypocritical host Matt Lauer was recently fired amid his own harassment allegations. It’s no secret that Hollywood is plagued with the worst of the worst. And, it’s no secret that anyone can become a victim. Terry Crews himself just filed a lawsuit against a Hollywood agent for sexual assault. However, the fact that is it now fashionable to come out with the truth or the fact that it is now advantageous to your career to expose Hollywood’s evils does not mean this is a new occurrence.

All in all, I guess I really can’t blame Time for grabbing the low hanging fruit. No, this action does not cure the issue, but at least people aren’t keeping quiet anymore. Hopefully, in the near future, people will not opt to remain silent in hopes of advancing their careers while watching countless other being victimized.

Other finalists for Person of the year included President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping and quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Instead, they gave it to a hashtag. Great work, Time. Boost those ratings. You need every drop you can get lately.
