Social media is turning into social justice. Time and time again we remind users that they should assume, while in public, all of their actions are being monitored and recorded. Especially if you are a public figure.
In the most recent turn of events that went viral, former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was released from the team after TMZ released a video showing Rice punching his wife and knocking her out in a casino elevator.
The NFL tried to cover-up the case and push it aside, only giving Rice a two-game suspension. But once the video went viral and the public was beyond outraged, the team was left with little choice.
The same thing happened to the former Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling, who was caught making racist remarks on a voicemail. He was forced to sell the team.
