The way she talks about someone else
That she don't even know herself
She's the sickest thing in the world
Well, look at that stupid girl.
-M. Jagger/K. Richards
Alexandra Wallace was quite sure that people really wanted to hear what she had to say. I imagine that her parents and those in her inner circle always told her how smart she was, and how her big thoughts and outspoken ways were really going to make a mark on the world. It looks like they were right. Ms. Wallace's angry rant on Asian students talking on their cell phones in the library and her disdain of those same Asian students being visited and cared for by their families went viral, and in turn angered millions of people. It has been reported that she and her family have received death threats for the rant - a rant that she claims she was simply trying to be humorous in! If she dies of anything I'm hoping it's from the embarrassment of documenting her stupidity for the world to see. Of course, the fallout has been that Ms. Wallace has withdrawn from UCLA and apologized for her video - ultimately, it's probably too little...too late.
Her video channel is gone, but, as most of us know, once you put it on the internet it is there forever, and of course, others have managed to keep her original words alive with reposts:
There are a plethora of video responses to be found to Ms. Wallace's rant, and one not-to-miss moment comes from Jimmy Wong. As Jimmy says in his sweet tune dedicated to a sour girl: When it comes to love there are no boundaries:
