People who know how to use the Internet don't know who Paul McCartney is
I was going to blog about all of the people who took to social media to ask who is Bonnie Bear, after Bon Iver won Best New Artist at last night's Grammy Awards, spurring the same outrage as Arcade Fire (Who is Arcade Fire??!!?) after the group won Album of the Year at last year's Grammy Awards. But then I came across something much, much worse than fans of pop music complaining because they don't know the talented indie act that beat their favorite rapper for the gold gramophone.
Who is Paul McCartney?!
So many people were asking about him on Twitter that Who is Paul McCartney is a trending topic.
This is your future, America. Please teach your children about The Beatles.
That's probably not the worst thing that's been said on social media. The tweet below pretty well sums up my feelings:
RIP Society of the Day: I can’t decide who I dislike more: The “who is Paul McCartney” kids or the “I would let Chris Brown beat me” girls.
