If you don’t know what I’m talking about, read this article first. It’s making the headlines as we speak and has article reactions from:

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. All because some people got their jimmies rustled that America the Beautiful was being sung in different languages so they had to take to twitter with “#fuckcoke.”

I don’t think we’re a news outlet, but does it need an event article? gives off this graph for the tag:

Maybe we could include it in the Super Bowl entry?

I say include it in the Super Bowl entry for now. If this controversy manages to live past the Super Bowl Hype Roar, I would give it an okay for it’s own entry.

The second I saw it, I knew /pol/’s jimmies would be rustled.

I can understand the anger, though. You can’t exactly be a melting pot if you can’t understand each other--something which seems to be increasingly happening, especially in the Southwest.

Seems Don beat you to it. Now I am 100% certain that he doesn’t even check the forums just in case another user is about to go make an entry. :\

Well I requested editorship to the Super Bowl entry 2 days ago for this reason, but it wasn’t granted to me. Guess I’ll just have to jump the gun next time and make an entry as soon as I see it. =P
