"Why isn't posting almost it?"
"Why aren't yous blasting this kook?"
We got posts on Instagram, also every bit DMs as well as emails bespeak this question. H5N1 duad that were insinuating that nosotros are non beingness supportive of woman mortal surfers as well as dark woman mortal surfers.
Well, outset off, nosotros didn't larn intelligence of this till a 24-hour interval later it starting making the meshing rounds. We were non tagged inwards the initial posts on the incident similar KooK_of_the_Day , Kookslams, as well as Inertia were. Which was likely for the best.
Second, if you're reading this, yous already know what the incident nosotros are talking about, every bit it has made the rounds of all the surf related websites as well as social media.
As we're started gathering information to brand a storey on the incident, nosotros saw how the friend of the surfer who got her leash pulled as well as a website that is unopen to that person's arrangement were attempting to plough this incident into a racial abhor criminal offence of sorts. Now to live clear, what 1 surfer did yesteryear pulling that other surfer's leash was non right, but neither is what this friend as well as that website are doing.
That website has a real poorly written as well as factually inaccurate weblog post "breaking" this story, stating race was the motivation behind the incident. Any mortal who points out the writer's errors inwards facts, or does non fully 100% side amongst surfer that got her leash pulled automatically gets labeled every bit "racist white man" yesteryear the website.
We politely as well as respectfully asked the author some query almost her storey inwards a world forum, non only did she back-peddle, constantly lie, as well as merely turn down to respond questions, she attempted to utter downward to us, bill us of harassment (ironic) , as well as more... As many lead keep stated all over social media, the author only used race inwards club to drum upwards to a greater extent than clicks to her website.
Even worse comes from the friend who is pike heading this mean value vendetta against the surfer who pulled the leash.
Pretty much all the websites posting on this storey are taking their information direct from those 2 sources. Some are calling it what it is, others are next those two's footsteps as well as labeling this every bit a race number to earn sympathy views as well as shares (in club to brand to a greater extent than coin off the ads run on the sites).
The guy was beingness an arrogant kook, he wasn't beingness a racist.
We did observe a lot of information to run a pretty proficient storey on the incident, but the truth was that neither parties come upwards off looking good. We constitute proof that all involved lead keep a history of sure enough behaviors.
That as well as because nosotros didn't desire to laissez passer these imitation claims of a "race motivated assault" anymore attending (since sadly many lead keep their minds made upwards already , they volition pick out no facts proving otherwise ). We made the telephone band to non post anything
The only argue nosotros are posting this is because some are trying to say this website is hiding the storey because it is run yesteryear a "triggered white dude" as well as "a Venice/Lima type". We merely desire to clear that BS up.
Will nosotros eventually post the storey nosotros started writing upwards as well as getting screenshots for? To live honest, non sure. Prefer to non convey anymore negativity to our community.
NOTE: We withheld names of all parties involved including the advert of that race-baiting website. We don't desire to live the "source" of whatsoever attacks or harassment made to them yesteryear our readers. Looks similar they are getting it plenty forthwith anyways.
