I want to highlight this brave gentleman, Tom Hearden, as this week’s biggest clown. Senior Trader at Skylands Capital had something to say about the education at Louisiana State University on Twitter. Twitter spent all of yesterday just repeatedly making Tom think about how stupid his Tweet was and I just think that is beautiful. He took one for the team. Tweet Below:
With over 6.5 million views at the time of my writing this, Tom made the comparison between the LSU library and the football team’s locker room. Let’s get this straight, I am pro-education. But please don’t compare books and reading to Joe Burrow and Justin Jefferson scoring touchdowns and smoking cigars. There are levels to this. The library does not deserve even close to the attention that our beloved sport of football gets.
While I applaud Tom for his brave tweet, I wanna thank him for doing this. He did something that no politician, celebrity, or even God could do for this country. Unite us. Right after he tweeted this, everyone just decided to start dunking on him over and over again. If we want this country to go back to normal, we need to find something in common and hate it together and that’s exactly what we did on Twitter yesterday. Here are my favorite replies:
