Social media the new King Kong- AY Makun

Famous actor and comedian Ayodeji Richard Makun, also known as AY Makun, has poked fun at the flaws in social media.
He posted a profound warning about the negative effects of social media on his Instagram feed.

The father of two likened social media to the modern King Kong, where subjective opinions now hold greater weight than factual information.

He observed that a fool is applauded for saying what the public finds endearing, while a wise man is condemned for saying anything opposing it.

Ayo went on to say that social media is a place where being a fool doesn’t require official training.

He believes that one must be born stupid and has the freedom to display their stupidity.

He went on to say that, depending on what they observe or experience, people carry their ignorance with a great deal of grace and confidence.

“Social media is now the new King Kong, where feelings are now more important than objective facts. If a foolish person comes out and says something that unlocks the feelings of an audience, he or she gets praised. But if a wise person comes and says something contrary to how people want to feel, he or she gets persecuted.

“Social media is a place where you don’t need formal training to know how to be a fool. You just have to be born foolish and be free enough to express your foolishness. It’s a place that gives you confidence even in your ignorance. It is the only place where you can freely express the nothingness of your not knowing close to anything before your interferences.

“The funny part is that a lot of people carry their ignorance with a lot of class and a lot of confidence based on what they see or feel. But we must also understand that each community is entitled to have a fool or a community of fools that recognizes and accepts the foolishness of others as a brand to submit to. Such foolishness does not stop you from being a man or woman. It does not even stop you from not having fans and followers cut across the strata of different foolish endeavors.

“Having said that, more foolish people will continue to evaluate their performances in the space by creating sensationalism and negative viral content for the entertainment pleasures of their different audiences. But as long as foolish individuals do not care about the stress, pain, anxiety, loneliness, and depression they bring you, the more it is also very important for them to enjoy the consequences of their actions.
