Everyone who ever made fun of Rebecca Black. She's just a kid and death threats? Really? Turn it off if you don't like it!

I didn't know of her until now.

Yes, this is sad.

SO SHE DOESN'T SING SO WELL.

Death threats, really? Wow!!

Sad.

It's nice to see she's handling it so well. Sad to see her pushed out of school because of it.

Ironically, I think it's jealousy for her sudden "fame" (from her video), and her looks.

Think about it, William Hung didn't sing well either but they support him.

Strange and sad this.

She seems like a good kid. The song is annoying, but it was a happy song and I think that's a good thing.
Plus, I like this (fully authorized I'm sure) remix:

Once again a misleading title.

Each of us in a unique way; only nice people are all the same.

"We" means me and a bunch of other people. All of us, the collective "we" who made fun of Rebecca Black, are a bunch of *&^holes for picking on her. If you didn't make fun of Rebecca Black then you are not one of us, and therefore not a "we" or an &*^hole in this context.

But talking of &^*%holes is so much more eloquent than Leo's version. :)

My favorite line on the subject comes at the end of From Dusk 'Til Dawn. Can't repeat it here.

The song is truly awful, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Ms. Black will emerge from this stronger in character and fatter of pocketbook.
