I reported my first Google Video yesterday. I am tired of seeing misleading thumbnails of views.
The reason it was misleading is that it showed Catherine Bach (aka Daisey Dukes) in a wheelchair with her lower legs removed. Not only was it gruesome but it was untrue. I couldn’t find any support for this other than a deviantart image that someone made and used that made it look like something it was not.
Now I had a crush on Daisey Duke as a child but that’s not why I did it. I had clicked on another video that had a famous person in a wheelchair and I learned that image wasn’t true either. I am usually good at realizing clickbait headlines, but no one is perfect. I was tired that someone was manipulating Google videos with misinformation.
I shared earlier that I stopped reading social media because of the untrue things that I kept finding out. I am constantly getting notifications from Snopes about new things that are untrue mostly. It is exhausting. I bet in the last 24 hours I have gotten 60 notifications. Just keeping up with the myths is a full-time job.
I will continue to report Google videos that are untrue. I am so tired of thumbnails that have nothing to do with the content of the video.
