Sloan Churman’s original video:
My response to the ensuing comments on the video:
In this video, I react to the tactless comments being posted in response to Sloan Churman’s inspiring video where Sarah Churman hears her own voice for the first time after a lifetime of being deaf. Whereas a simple, “Congrats on your newfound hearing!” would have been both sufficient and polite, many people chose to turn the video’s comment section into their own personal political platform. Several of them did it in the most tactless way possible, offering up flat out insults and not even constructive points.
In my opinion, her video and the subsequent comments show what is great and horrible about the internet.
