I just read an exchange on twitter between Kara Swisher & Eric Jackson. Swisher has taken offense to the use of the word haters in Jackson's Forbes article from yesterday. Ugh wth is this world coming to?
To me the term haters or the more used haters gonna hate is slang for sometimes no matter what you do people have a bias against you. Even after Jackson stated that he did not intend to use the term in the way she is accusing, she attempts to somehow tie in the use of the word with the awful bombing in Boston.
SInce I have posted the article here and obviously do agree with the sentiment, I am a little incredulous that Kara Swisher takes anyone to task over word usage when she herself has written some of the most venomous, spiteful articles on Yahoo.
Kara, I will use the word any darn way I please, you are not the arbitor of how the world should speak.
I do like ATD. I do read Kara's pieces. I like the way she turns a phrase, but this condemnation of the way a word was used was inappropriate on her part.
