Due to Clarkson’s popularity, all his followers are of course minimizing and trivialising the abuse he made a choice to inflict on someone. And he has a history of abuse.
Many are even going as far as saying the victim deserved what he got.
Calling him racist names, verbally abusing him for 20 minutes, and then punching him – over ‘food’ (reportedly) – is verbal and physical assault, abuse. And this should result in anyone getting sacked. Especially when they have a history of abusive behaviours.
But, society just loves to minimize and trivialise abuse – when they have selfish reasons to want to support, condone and encourage the abuser.
Classic example, all over social media, of statements being made of minimizing abuse.
As usual narcissistic/sociopathicpsychopathic abuse – minimized, trivialised, ignored, condoned.
And this is one of the main reasons why abuse of every kind, is increasing.
And I am only using Clarkson as an example, because I already worked him out over a year ago and have banned my 12 year old from viewing such an unhealthy/disordered person, and he is current news and such a classic example. But this issue happens all the time – with homes, churches, workplaces – everywhere.
Narcissism, sociopathy, psychopathy – are all encouraged in society….. as long as they are people who are deemed outwardly ‘successful’, and/or give large audiences something that condones the audiences own dark/disordered/unhealthy needs within.
And so few wish to see the reality of this.
