So, let me get this straight. The internet justifies sending death threats and harassing kids because they harassed an old lady? Makes sense. Sure they deserve to be punished, but sending death threats and harassing kids isn't the way to do it. The is wrong with people? The people sending the threats are no better than the kids themselves.
And why does this lady deserve $500,000? There are people that deserve it way more than this lady so hopefully she'll do the right thing and donate some of it to those people.
#1 Not many are trying to justify what tards on 4chan are doing. 4chan does what it does.
#2 Who knows how much she "deserves" but who cares if strangers want to give her money? It's no skin off your teeth. You can't really start picking apart things like "She doesn't deserve $500K for getting made fun of by teenagers. There are starving children in Africa!" because once you start prioritizing who deserves what based on the needs of humanity, your whole world starts to unravel. It is what it is and things are the way they are. If people gave a shit about starving kids in Africa over this lady, they'd give their money to Africa but that's not what they want to do.
