Cry-Baby of the Week
Jun 8 2012
It's time to point and laugh at a couple of cry-babies again!
Cry-baby #1: Ms. April Spielman
The incident: A 15-year-old girl dressed as Tinkerbell attempted to enter the Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. As park terms and conditions state that people aren't allowed to enter the park dressed as Disney characters, she was told to either change into a different outfit (that Disney World would provide to her for free), or leave.
The appropriate reaction: Taking the free clothes and changing into them.
The actual reaction: She turned down the free clothes (as well as the free Fast Passes and "guest assistance" that the park offered to her). And she cried. You can see a picture of her doing it in the news clip above (who the fuck takes photos of themselves crying, BTW?). Not content with just humiliating herself at Disney World, she then went on to her local news channel and cried there for a while. And actually seriously said: "They were talking about how, little girls, it ruins their dreams–but it ruined my dream, because I just wanted to be Tinkerbell."
I can't wait till someone tells this girl what "Syria" is.
Cry-baby #2: Everyone involved in a story about fake rape (is there a word for "fake rape"?)
The incident: Four girls took a cab. When they arrived at their destination, the driver asked them for $13 for his services.
The appropriate reaction: Paying for the cab that they ordered and subsequently rode in.
The actual reaction: Upon arrival, the four ladies told the cab driver that they were not going to pay for the cab. They then exited the vehicle, and told the first people they saw that the driver had attempted to "molest" them. Then they called the police.
Luckily for Soner Yasa, the driver of the cab, he had a dash-cam recording what was happening and was able to prove his innocence to the police.
BUT THEN Soner decided that just getting away with it wasn't enough, and decided to sue the young ladies for $60,000. Which, I BELIEVE puts him firmly into "cry-baby" territory himself. Obviously, accusing someone of a rape they didn't commit is a very, very, VERY shitty thing to do – but you can't sue people for what MIGHT have happened. Or I mean, you can. I know this because he's doing it right now. But you shouldn't.
So who is the biggest cry-baby? Let us know in the poll below so that we can shame one of these self-serious pussies forever.
