Being considered the quintessential internet scumbag, known worldwide — bragging in Trump fashion — I can, without any hesitation, say that Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, bully, and beyond measure one of the biggest scumbags around.
—  Blake Boston, aka “Scumbag Steve” [x]

By now you should know that Internet celebrities, whether they wanted the fame or someone forced it on them against their will, get harassed by faceless, gutless Internet assholes all the time. Blake “Scumbag Steve” Boston is no different. But the attacks on him got very personal, and hit frighteningly close to home. In his own words:

“Some asshole put up an ultrasound picture of my unborn kid and wished it would die. How fucked is that? My girl cried all night. She felt molested by that.”

An ultrasound. Of his unborn child. Fuck. When his mom found out that the picture she took had spread far and wide, she cried and blamed herself. Blake attributes this kind of behavior to people not being able to separate the meme from the man, probably because no one knows the man and people assume the meme had to be rooted in some kind of fact to be passed around so much. It’s not. Well, mostly. Even Blake admits he kind of lived up to the meme when he was in high school. (“Was I a douche bag? Yah, I guess.”).
