The Troll Who Went Too Far
An offensive and tasteless troll video on YouTube in which a young woman poses as a devout Christian and asserts that the devastation caused by Japan’s earthquake and tsunami was due to God’s anger at atheists has led to her cancelling her YouTube channel following an international web-based backlash. The woman, with the username tamtampamela, uploaded a video in the days after last week’s massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami, claiming the disaster was “God literally waking people up and saying “You are going to hell”.
Just hours before she took her account down from YouTube she uploaded a new video, in which she admits to being a troll. She says, “I’ve been making troll videos for awhile now, but this last one seems to have pissed off a lot of people, which was my intention, but at this point I’m kinda tired of pizza so I’m gonna let the cat out of the bag. Comin’ clean. It was fun guys so, uh, yeah I guess I’ll see ya.”
