One good thing about the coronavirus crisis is that the so called “Pumpkin Spice Mafia” has refrained from sharing viral fake stories about church cults kidnapping women in Walmart parking lots. That is until this woman showed up.
Rae Desrosiers is from Johnston, RI, and yesterday she decided to post this on Facebook, which was shared over 2,000 times in a matter of hours before she took it down.
Breaking News: Woman hears ridiculous rumor about door to door mask salesmen knocking women out with chloroform laced masks, doesn’t question it at all, asks everyone to share it, and the mob complies.
It doesn’t matter what you post on the Internet. If it stokes fear in people, they will share it.
It’s truly amazing how many people looked at a face like this…..
….and said to themselves, “she looks trustworthy, so I’m going to share her unverified second hand story.”
Who wore it better?
Anyone who believes a woman with eyebrows like that shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Not that these people vote anyway, but if they wanted to technically they could.
She’s also a manager at a bartending school, which is still selling training classes and scheduling them for a time when there is no guarantee that the quarantine will be over.
I didn’t get a chance to read the comments because people just sent the screenshot of her post, but I would imagine that almost everyone who responded, shared, and believed it, were female. Sorry ladies, but you know that only women ever fall for these viral posts. I’ve seen it a million times before:
“Uh muhhh gahhhd, this is like totally sex traffuckin!!”
“Ladies, be careful out there and don’t try on any masks”
“I’ve seen a lot of people posting about this and heard from muh girlfriend who is a CNA that it’s true.”
Actually, scratch that:
Turns out men can join the Pumpkin Spice Mafia Commie Cold Chapter too.
