Before social media, YouTube and WorldStarHipHop, having a fight in school would be limited to the confinements of the perimeter and immediate people who witnessed the brawl. Now-a-days if you happen to get into an embarrassing incident you can almost count on the encounter being filmed on a camera-phone and posted to some sort of Internet agent.
The bathroom of a Detroit middle school, for 30 seconds, became home to a “Fight Club.” Video of two young girls brawling while on-lookers cheered them on went viral and made the news.
We are living in a day and age where fighting has becoming entertainment. So much so, that WordStarHipHop can be heard in the background of several fight videos like an ad lib on your favorite rappers’ song. It is surprising though, that females have taken a liking to this craze.
The Internet has changed almost every aspect of our lives, to the point that our children are fighting online for five desperate minutes of fame. If you aren’t seeing it in real life or watching it on TV, you can find it on the world wide web…we just can’t get away from it!
