Yesterday at AGT (America got Talent) the female judge Mel B. got up and threw water at Simon Cowell. That wasn’t a first; she and Heidi Klum have done it before. Whenever the ladies are lost for words or don’t have a smart reply, they chose to throw a temper tantrum like little kids in Kindergarten.
Every time they do that I shake my head in disbelieve. Are they not aware that children are watching this family show? Is that what we want to teach our little girls?
“Go ahead little girl, if you don’t like what the little boys have to say, get physical.” What a message this sends.
Imagine it would have been the other way around and Simon Cowell or Howie Mandel would have lower themselves to such an act. What if they would throw water at the ladies, just because they don’t like what they have to say.
What an uproar this would be. Our news would be full of it and over night it would be all about them abusing women. We fought for that. A man has no right to attack us physically in any form or way and I am sorry, but throwing water at a person is an attack in my books. What goes for men, goes for women as well. It is called equality!
Perhaps they think it’s funny and entertaining. Well, it’s not. Not even close.
I can’t help but wonder, what is next? Will they be spitting at each other at the judge’s table, or perhaps slap each other in the face? Wait a minute, this has already been done as well. Paper or their empty notebooks have been used to hit the male judges.
For me, it’s a question of style and class. We live in a time where verbal abuse and attacks seem to be the new normal. Do we really have to continue to make it worse? What message are we sending to the kids these days?
I hope there will be consequences. New female judges with more class and more style would be a good start!
