Let Them Eat Wedding Cake

[Content Note: Bullying; exploitation.]

A bunch of people have emailed me about the horrific story of a "funny" video of homeless people, some of whom appear to be addicts and/or have disabilities, that was shown at Justin Timberlake's and Jessica Biel's wedding reception. Kaiser has good coverage of it here.

I honestly don't know what to say about it except this: That is some real 1% shit, right there. And history suggests that the poor and dispossessed with tolerate an awful fucking lot from the wealthy and powerful, but they will not tolerate lavish displays of mocking contempt.
