Krizzy (And the truths we're afraid to say)
If there’s someone or something that makes me hooked on Twitter, that would be the thousands of parody accounts of local personalities, such as Krizzy KalerQUI™ (Yes, the trademark included). Together with his 37.8 “million” followers, I am hooked with her straight-to-the-point, fearless and most of the time…hilarious tweets.
There’s a lot of other Twitter accounts who joined the flock: @superstarmarian has amassed 50 thousand “pans” who are hooked by her crazy antics, sometimes funnier than the real Marian Rivera. Also, parody accounts of celebrities, such as Anne Curtis and Piolo Pascual, and even TV executives, such as Charo Santos, emerged. There’s also a few pretending to be Jose Rizal, P-Noy, and even Madam Auring.
For me, what makes these parody accounts a hit is the way they state the “social facts” we are afraid to say in public. In a way, these accounts encourage participation and debate, from the smallest tsismis to even political issues. Is Piolo Pascual really gay? Which is better, ASAP or Party Pilipinas? Should Gloria be in jail? Beyond the hilarious tweets, it pushes us to be informed about our surroundings, or else we’ll be out of the fun.
But what is lamentable is the fact that these parody accounts need to pose as some other entity so that they could speak out. How ironic; this could be a sign that there’s not enough right to free speech in this country. And yes, these accounts makes us engaged, but it only touches things from the surface; they seem to “de-intellectualize” things and make us passive observers in a sea of voices.
At the end of the day, these parody accounts possess a lot of influence that, if tapped, could spark a difference. But another thing, how can the majority of people hear what they’re saying if they have no Twitter accounts, much worse, internet connection, or even electricity?
I keep getting blamed for making these anti-Cookeville parody accounts on twitter.
At first I didn’t care but now I’m offended because their level of comedy is in no way clever, classy, or witty.
When I insult somebody, I do it to their face and *ahem* I’m fucking hilarious when I do it.
I take pride in my jokes and will not stand to be compared to these imbeciles
Forever judging people who follow/retweet parody accounts on Twitter. It’s funny to have character Twitters that actually tweet as if they’re in their universe, though. Like, I follow Goku.. And those tweets are funny from time to time. But why the fuck are you following frank_ocean, frank_ocaen, AND frank_oceanseleven?
Frank Ocean Rant *breathes deeply to calm myself*
People who know me know I love Frank Ocean. Love him. He can do no wrong in my eyes. I was so happy and proud of him for his statement. But what’s pissing me the hell off are all these fucking idiots on Twitter trying to capitalize off of his statement and his name by creating these fucking fake accounts. 1. I hate parody accounts period. 2. This is not funny. What he did was beyond brave and it is HIS LIFE. Do NOT make a fucking joke account about that. 3. If you’re going make a parody account CALL IT A FUCKING PARODY ACCOUNT!!! One account “frank__ocean” is truly perpetrating itself as Frank! Tweeting song lyrics like “I’ve been thinking bout you.” and saying “it’s MY LIFE not yours” but is not acknowledging that it isn’t even Frank Ocean tweeting! Frank Ocean HAS a verified twitter account that he ACTUALLY uses. It truly upsets me that people are tweeting their kind and supportive words to these bullshit ass accounts when the REAL Frank Ocean is the one who needs to see them.
In closing, boycott all parody accounts, support Frank Ocean and buy Channel Orange when it’s released on July 17th.
That is all.
