to cut to the chase

What is going on, for us that don't have social media?

Someone said a rude thing about someone else.

That other person declared the mole hill a mountain.

The internet made popcorn and sharpened pitchforks.

Pretty generic bs drama that could have been resolved without so much pomp.

Allow me to translate this into adult:

Someone said a rude thing about someone else.

A professional climber posted a photo of a morbidly obese person in a bikini and joked that it was Sasha DiGiulian.

That other person declared the mole hill a mountain.

Sasha pointed out that this was a shitty thing for another professional climber to do.

The internet made popcorn and sharpened pitchforks.

The sponsors paying money to associate themselves with this professional climber reevaluated their relationships with him, forcing him to apologize publicly.

This is what happens in the real world when grownups act like children.

Insofar as it is possible for anyone older than 23 or 24 to understand anything that happens on facebook or instagram or reddit or twitter or whatever dozen other social media platforms I've never heard of, it seems to boil down to this:

One climber posted a picture of a fat woman and said it looked like some other climber. The other climber was offended, complained, and the first climber's sponsors dumped him.

Is that right?

If so, I think Craig Fry should complain about Cosmic posting fat manips of him, and get Cosmic's sponsors to dump him.

David, that is completely unfair. Dwain has never had and never will have, any communication, negotiation or detente with Windex.

I don't get it. People post pictures of fat people on supertopo all the time. I believe they call them trip reports.

BJ,

That's because most people who just go climbing have very little to do with people who earn a living when they go climbing.

Think of that Zoolander movie.

We all wear clothes but very few can be in the fashion industry.

Pretty classic, really. Kinder's persona plus the tahoe tree choppin' have never made me a fan of his. Sasha's shameless self-promotion and thin skin, likewise, have never made me much of a fan of hers. Nothing seems genuine or heart-felt with her, just plastic in order to make the next move, do the next Redbull, GoPro pose-down, etc.

A private meme page should not a career break. That being said, he shouldn't have pushed as far as he seemingly did. Unfortunate all around.

I also find it BS that Sasha claimed she "never wanted his sponsors to drop him" and also then has her manager come out and handle the mess. I get it, she was dealing with an ailing family member, but come on...

Fortunately for Joe, not that many folks have climbed 5.15 so give it some time to blow over and he'll be picked up by someone to get free shoes and clothes again. With that being said, he also now has had two significant issues like this and chances don't grow on trees. Who knows. Hopefully they both learned something from it.

Nope. Wasn't me.
It was Locker that posted the fat manip of Fry

However I have posted a couple fat manips of other
people here.

The problem with commercial sport climbing controversies is that they take public interest away from people who jumar Everest for a good cause.

We should all celebrate our community and have what's best for the children, in our hearts.
