'Glee' Influences Toronto Teens to Attack Gays With Slushies
Getting a slushie to the face is common on 'Glee,' but now the stunt is being pulled in real-life and on gay and lesbian teens in Canada. According to the Toronto Sun, high school students from Jarvis Collegiate Institute are mostly to blame.
Teens from the local school are reportedly heading to the neighborhood of "Gay Village" during lunch and after school to attack passers-by with slushies and snowballs, while shouting slurs at their victims.
The police have increased area patrol, and are meeting with school officials to come up with a solution to "end to this foolishness," Staff Sgt. Rudy Pasini said. "We need to remind the kids it may be funny on TV, but in reality it's not funny at all," he added.
Hurling anything at another person is not okay, especially if it's done maliciously. Some may think that throwing the frozen drink in someone's face isn't harmful, but anything that's fueled by hate is. Also, in some cases, the teens have upgraded to throwing chunks of ice at people, which can potentially cause serious injury.
What do you think of the Toronto teens' actions? What should be done about the situation? Do you think 'Glee' should show less slushie-ing on TV? %Poll-59134%
