Bees, I’m disgusted.
A friend of mine posted a status on Facebook saying “Fuck ANZACs.” and when I asked why he would post such a thing on social media, he replied with “I’m trying to see what people’s reactions are like. I actually don’t care one way or the other.” This makes me furious. My grandfather served in Vietnam and another family member served in WWII, so I hold ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day very close to my heart. The servicemen and women fought for our freedom. I get that freedom of speech is a thing, but this is absolutely disrespectful.
Has anyone else seen anything as wrong as this?

That is horrible! No luckily I haven’t seen anything like that.

I would defriend him. I defriended my own brother in law for posting something racist. By staying his friend, you’re saying it’s ok for him to post that. Nope!

I’ve already gone on to say to him (in quite a lot of detail) how disgusted I am in him for saying it. He apologised to me, but said it was for a little project he had going on. As far as I know he isn’t attending any sort of college or university but even if he did, what purpose does this serve? The only responses he’s gotten are angry ones because he’s posted what he has.

Well, isn’t that ‘friend’ a gem.
I have defriended people for much less idiocy.

tiffanyscanlan: Is he Australian? If he isn’t does he live in Australia?
People don;t post shit like this as an experiment, they do it to be controversial or because they are ignorant arseholes. I hope he realises that the sacrifices made by the men and women that have fought in wars gives him the freedom to write arsehole comments on FB.
