Guys, Please Stop Making Death Threats Against Rebecca Black

Guys, I know it has been a long winter. Sometimes it feels like spring will never come. It SNOWED at my parents house on Monday. SNOW! Meanwhile, back in New York, it is still a bit chillier than anyone would like, and these gray skies don’t seem to have any intention of clearing up. It’s exhausting, right? Everyone’s getting a little grouchy and worn out. But, you guys, come on, that is no reason to make death threats against Rebecca Black. She is a little child! From Reuters:

Police said on Tuesday they were investigating two death threats against 13-year-old Internet sensation Rebecca Black over her low-budget music video “Friday.”

The threats were made sometime in March, after “Friday” became a YouTube hit and went viral as a web phenomenon, Anaheim Police spokesman Rick Martinez said.

“In essence the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her,” Martinez said.

I’m disappointed in you guys. I guess I just expected more from you. Ever since your dad left, you’ve been so brave and strong and you’ve really been helping out around the house, even your teachers seem to think you’re doing better in school, and now this? Don’t you think I have enough to deal with? Besides, do you even know how the Internet works? You can’t just take this down at this point. Even if you killed her, which you better not, her song would still be everywhere. You should know better. Go to your room. No dessert.
