Everyone has the right to express their opinion and even fight for a cause of their choice. Recently a petition was created to demand Beyonce to do something about Blue Ivy’s hair. Sounds ridiculous right? Today a petition was created to stop the production of the Aaliyah Lifetime movie. These online petitions have gone way too far.
Using your voice to support something is great, but lets make sure its a worthy and valuable cause. Petitions used to be taken seriously, now we the people are dumbing down the process and the power of a petition.
Zendaya is going to be our Aaliyah whether we like it or not. It’s not the end of the world. Express your opinions and move on, do not about your rights to express the way you feel. These unnecessary online petitions need to stop. There are serious issues to fight for, poverty, hate, pollution, violence, famine, damn even animal cruelty.
If we keep abusing the power of the petition, we will one day find ourselves voiceless.
