Homeless People and Formerly Homeless People Reading Mean Tweets

by William Skink

I’m not sure how I feel about this video of homeless and formerly homeless people reading mean tweets, but I think it’s worth watching. I’d like to dedicate the video to the ignorant monsters who comment frequently at Missoulian.com.

  1. How humiliating, degrading, and hurtful to have these people read this out loud. What did it accomplish? I hate people! When are people going to realize that the majority of homeless people do not want to be homeless. They are product of a failing healthcare system, mental health system, racism, income inequality, poor support for families who are working and still not making it, and I could go on and on and on….Why don’t we focus on what made them homeless and focus on their strengths and what they can do differently, instead of how they smell or look. FUCK!!!

      I understand your reaction. I hope the people in the video were given enough information about what this was going to be like in order to make an informed decision about whether or not they wanted to participate.

      what did it accomplish? an emotional impact on those who watch it, as evidenced by your reaction. like I said, I don’t know how I feel about it, but I put it out here to see what other people think. thank you for sharing your visceral reaction.

    So there’s the Koch-collared numbers and momentum,
    and now Greg’s regulars position their “plan(k)” for 2016 and together they pick up the can they been kicking down the road,

    Poke holes in it, put on new label, and find bullies to manipulate Legislators to vote for a half-full can, SB 405 !

    Yes, thankyou to the Flathead Memo!

    This should be dedicated to Linda McCarthy of the Downtown Association who has for over a decade fed the Missoulian the pejorative profiles that perpetuate the offending comments.
