Gladiators!

Shade is the new black.

Petty is the new shade.

Slander is gold.

Lies are lauded as truth.

Our famous Gladiators are still revered when they win. But in this new arena, they, and anyone else in the public eye for any reason, are subject to scrutiny beyond comprehension. In this arena, the messier stories spread fastest, the nastiest comments have the most likes, and other people’s flaws are highlighted for entertainment. And there is always a detractor and a hater no matter how upstanding a person is. The audience and the lion can be one and the same.

It’s violence.
