Who Doesn’t Love a Good Spoiler?

No one. No one loves a good spoiler. At least when it effects them.

For instance, when the videos of the guy yelling at people waiting in line for the “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” went viral. Were the people in line rightfully angry at the yells of “Snape kills Dumbledore”? Oh yeah. Did it make for hilarity for those people who may not have been very interested in Harry Potter? Yes.

Social media has made spoiling movies and television shows a bit of a sport for the trolls and those who tend to not think before typing words out on their social media accounts. (Which, I suppose, is a good majority of people on social media.) They don’t care about the effect that those words have on other people. If they did, bullying wouldn’t be a thing. It’s awful that you have to avoid the outside world until you see a movie or a popular television show because there’s always that 1 guy.

Was I upset that someone yelled “Snape killed Dumbledore” before I had read the book? No. I actually found it hilarious. I’m a hypocrite like that. Now if someone read the “Winds of Winter” before me and spoiled it, I would probably hunt them down and make them suffer things that they have only dreamed about in nightmares. I’m vindictive like that.

The moral of the story? Don’t be that guy. I know your life may be so sad and pathetic that the only joy that you get is from upsetting the masses, but don’t do it. If you need that much attention in your life, I recommend getting a puppy. They give you so much attention that you can’t even go to the bathroom in peace. Plus, they don’t talk. So you can spoil movies for them and they won’t care. In fact, you can just spend your time venting whatever troll impulses that you have on them. Because they will love you anyways.

Unlike people. People won’t love you anyways if you spoil things for them.
