We’re pretty sure mean girls have existed since the dawn of
time. We don’t like it, but yeah, they seem to be a fact of life. Now that
society’s gone viral, though, mean girls aren’t quite as safe from criticism as
they used to be.
First there was Rebecca Black. Now, a duo called Double Take
has released a music video for their song, “Hot Problems.” It’s not meant to be
good; the girls, both 17, admit to that. But what seems to be getting the most
attention isn’t the quality of the singing but the lyrics themselves. Here’s a
sampling: “Boys call me stuck up; girls say I'm conceited, on behalf of all hot
girls, those comments aren't needed.”
Take a look at the video…
The two L.A. natives are self-proclaimed hotties. So
predictably, much of the commentary surrounding the video questions their
appearance. Girls and guys alike have dished it out, calling them wanna-be porn
stars, dudes in drag and all varieties of ugly.
We all have a right to free speech, but here’s our question:
These girls might be queen bees, mean girls, the girls that pick on everyone
else. They could be perfectly sweet, too—we can’t say as we don’t know them
personally. But on principle, is it OK to be mean to mean girls? And how mean
is too mean?
We wanna know what you have to say about this issue that
comes up over and over again. CLICK
