Whether Claira Janover was serious when she threatened “the next person who has the sheer nerve, the sheer entitled ‘caucasity,’ to say ‘All Lives Matter,’ I’mma stab you” or not, the cold hard reality is stupid actions have consequences.
When grownups must face the consequence of their poor life choices they accept it, learn from it and move on.
Children of all ages refuse to accept the consequences of their actions and do what kids typically do – they blame everyone for their problems and refuse to accept any responsibility at all.
That’s the trouble I have with Claira Janover, the latest 15-minutes-of-fame internet crybaby.
Instead of admitting she did something really stupid and posted it on the internet, she blames Trump supporters and executives at her now-former employer, Deloitte, for her self-induced crisis.
“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she cried in one video.
“I know this is what Trump supporters wanted,” she whined in another. “The job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me just called me and fired me.”
She’s right. Personal responsibility sucks.
Honestly, what company in their right mind would want their good name dragged through the mud because an employee can’t comprehend what the rest of us learned by the time we were five – actions have consequences.
And sometimes, those consequences really, really suck.
Janover ‘s self-described “best friend” created a GoFundMe page soliciting donations for her (Janover’s second) because of the unjust condemnation she now faces.
Over 250 people donated $7,410, so far, to save her from her self-inflicted plight and her well-earned joblessness.
By rewarding Janover for playing the victim card, they encourage her bad behaviour.
In donating to her “cause” these donors guarantee Claira Janover remains tucked safely inside her precious little victim cocoon instead of learning from her mistake.
And that’s the bigger offence.
What do you think? Do you believe individuals must accept responsibility for their actions? Or am I just another “hate-filled Trump supporter”? Let me know in the comments below.
