Carson King addresses controversial social media post from high school

This is why the world sucks:

An incredibly heartwarming story we've all been enjoying over the last couple weeks, and then a bored Des Moines Register reporter decides he doesn't just want to write headlines, he wants to make them. The kid referenced a freaking Comedy Central TV show at 16 years old. Apparently Comedy Central should be celebrated and receive awards for making these shows, but don't laugh or quote them, because that makes you a bad guy. The people that make desperately searching other people's past social media behavior need to GET A FUCKING LIFE. Carson King needs to out this reporter for the loser he is. If the media wants to know why people despise them, look no further than EXHIBIT A.


DES MOINES, Iowa — Carson King, the Iowa State fan who helped raise over $1 million for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital, held a press conference Tuesday regarding a controversial post made on social media eight years ago.

King said a reporter with the Des Moines Register called attention to an offensive social media post he made when he was 16 years old.

“Eight years ago, when I was a sophomore in high school, I made some social media posts with my friends that quoted and referenced the show ‘Tosh.0,’ King said. “One of those posts was brought to my attention by a member of the media today.”

8. As far as I can tell, this guy didn't have to donate the money he received.

He collected the money for beer. So he could have bought a bunch of beer. Instead he decided to donate the money for a good cause. Shouldn't that count for something?
