April Pratt video shows how easily people can become famous

The alleged April Pratt video, which has been brought to the public’s attention via Twitter over the past 24 hours, is just the latest example of someone gaining fame (or perhaps, notoriety) thanks to social networks. In the wake of the recent Amber Cole video controversy, it seems there’s no shortage of people wanting to line up and condemn people like Pratt.

The alleged April Pratt video is almost six minutes long and it’s certainly energetic. It seems to have made headlines partly because of the bubbles that appear towards the end. And someone claiming to be Pratt has appeared on Twitter, offering bookings for public engagements.

The main difference between the alleged April Pratt and Amber Cole videos is that Pratt, at least, appears to be above the age of consent. And the irony of the whole thing is that people criticising these girls via Twitter are in fact helping to make them even more famous, putting their names on the list of trending topics and helping the stories to snowball from there.

  1. It seems like there’s a never-ending parade of young girls getting humiliated on camera these days. Kids are growing up in environments where their every mistake gets recorded and shared. I know that if I’d grown up in this kind of environment, my reputation would have been shot.

  2. Why do people enjoy moralising about other people so much?

  3. It is sad to see this generation waste away like this. Whats even worse is how good people think this is. If everyone ignored ignorance like this people would not be publicly exposing themselves to the world.
