Cry-Baby of the Week

This week: Crying nerd rapper versus angry stepmother!

It's time to metaphorically bogwash some little wetlads again!

Cry-baby #1: MC Chris

The incident: A guy tweeted something negative about a band he was watching.

The appropriate reaction: Nothing.

The actual reaction: OK, here's the whole story: A guy at a show for a "nerdcore rapper" (*shudder*) named "MC Chris" (*shudder*) tweeted during the support act, saying "Dear nerd rapper opening for Powerglove/mc chris. You're not good enough to pander to me. Better luck next time."


When MC Chris took to the stage, he demanded to know who had written the tweet, so that they could be ejected from the venue. Saying: "Security is going to take you the fuck out now, that's what you get for talking shit on the internet." It should be noted that MC Chris is 36 fucking years old, and therefore probably a little too old to be getting upset about Twitter (and DEFINITELY too old to be making whacky YouTube raps about Star Wars).

After being ejected from the venue, the tweeter took to Reddit to complain about MC Chris being such a giant fucking douchebag baby, and his post made the front page, getting over 6,000 comments. Mostly about how MC Chris is a giant fucking douchebag baby.

MC Chris, realising that he had made the internet mad at him, made a video to apologise, which is posted above. And for the first time in quite some time, we have a cry-baby on here who literally cried (he denied it later, but I think the truth is pretty clear to everyone). Skip to 2:25 in the video if you want to see it. But be warned: you have never experienced second hand embarrassment of this magnitude ever before in your life.

Cry-baby #2: Karen Young

The incident: A group of 11 and 12-year-old school children were given a school assignment about swear words.

The appropriate reaction: Nothing.

The actual reaction: See school assignment above.

According to the school, the worksheet was designed to teach "students to understand what kind of language is appropriate at what times and in what contexts".


OUTRAGED STEPMOTHER Karen Young was so upset by the assignment that she contacted the papers. Saying: "I was just disgusted, it was a shock. I don't swear in front of children and don't think they should be subjected to this." She then went on to claim that her stepdaughter Lauren (also pictured above) was "disgusted" and "said they shouldn't be shown things like this". Which seems quite unlikely, based on Lauren's facial expression in the photo, and the one semi-legible answer of hers in the above worksheet. Oh yeah, and also because she is 12. And, as everyone knows, approx. 80 percent of the words that 12-year-olds say are swear words.

If my 12-year-old child's handwriting looked like that, I would have bigger educational concerns than swearing.

The Daily Mail piece on the "incident" took issue with the words not being censored. Presumably, because if a child were to see the word "f*ck" written down, they would read it as a blank, inoffensive sound. Rather than "fuck".

So who is the biggest cry-baby? Please, please, please let us know in the poll below so that we can shame one of these self-serious pussies forever:
