How to piss off the internet in one song–Abigail Breslin: You suck



Abigail Breslin is the girl in Little Miss Sunshine that impressed the pants off of everyone.  Well she turned 18 and has released her first single ‘You suck’, (song below) written about her ex-boyfriend lead-singer of 5 Seconds of Summer, Michael Clifford.  Hilariously there are a bunch of people who are screaming “Excuse me, doesn’t Taylor Swift have copyright on young-privileged-white-girl-sings-about-her-ex songs?”  But they are not the people screaming the loudest.

It appears the 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) fans are a pretty die-hard bunch and the 5SOS fanbase has come together to start a twitter war against Abigail, below are some of the better tweets.  Mind you, it’s only going to get better from here because this song is just a minefield waiting for the PC Police to jump on the bandwagon.
After last week’s Feminist war on the song “Literally I can’t” I imagine that Abigail is about to cop it from both sides of the gender-equality PC Police for this line from the chorus:

 “I bet you didn’t know, you sound just like a girl every time you call me when you’re drunk…”

So you’re using a gender-based attack on traditional masculinity to put your ex down?  Because you feel that ‘sounding like a girl’, or being effeminate, is bad?

On a side note, you are attacking a person’s masculinity, so hating this song may be the first thing that both Feminists and Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs) ever agree on.

Mind you MRAs will take hating this to the next level—the song features a guy being tied to a chair and abused by a group of laughing girls… gender flip this video and picture the reaction to a video of four men tying a girl to a chair while taking turns to degrade and assault her…  Yeaaaaaah.

There are no people of colour in this song—so you know affirmative action people are going to be pissed.

There’s a girl wearing a fur hat in the video, so you know animal rights people are going to be pissed.  Also she’s covered in tats so the Mum Mafia aka the parental Christian right are going to be mad too.

And whatever that hat is that Abigail is wearing… you know the fashion police are all going to be “giiiiiiirrrrl, what was you thinking?”

As for me, my official reaction to this song is: ‘meh’.  The internet (when not acting as a voice for the oppressed and disenfranchised) is a hate machine that promotes a creepy mob mentality for issues that aren’t worth being regarded as issues.  This is an eighteen year old mad at their ex in a completely one-sided retelling of their failed relationship… which seems to be about as normal as 'eighteen' gets.

If this song is the worst thing happening in your life right now, hi-five yourself in the mirror and do a dance, because your life is good.
