A closer look at popular culture and communication

My sister is a slut

This is an amateur video that was created by a thirteen year old girl with a clear hate for her sister. The title “my sister is a slut” sets the tone for a series of pictures featuring her infamous sister set to music. Pictures and videos uploaded on to YouTube are stripped of their original context and altered in order to suit the wants of the producer. This video is cruel and immature and I am appalled that it has received over 6 000 views. Her privacy has been invaded as the menacing sister uses her full name to accompany the photos. In a world where we are both producers and consumers privacy becomes more limited. This video will surely cause further problems down the road for Jessica Amezuca, as employers have access to the internet as well. Many companies are using Facebook and other networking sites in order to “check up on” applicants before hire. Potentially the worst part about this video is that she appears to be an ordinary, self-regulated individual. She is not wearing overly revealing clothes or surrounded by an abundance of men, yet the stigma or “slut” reputation could stick as that is the context in which the video was set. I should wonder if she was even aware her sister was posting it on the internet, or her reaction when she found out… poor girl
