A few adults in Scotland are lacking in the awesomeness department, as put on display by their reaction to school-lunch nutrition blogger and awesomeness expert, Martha Payne.
Not only couldn’t they handle the public discussion heat brought on by Martha’s photo-reviews, the local council tried to silence her with some ne-plus-ultra-idioticratic bullying.
I’d call it ‘childish’, but that would be an insult to Martha’s entire age-bracket.
Anyway: Cue the Twitter Backlash, led by fellow School Nutrition Buff, chef Jamie Oliver.
Thanks to the outcry and a few higher-ups, the council ended up eating their words and backtracking on their free-speech ban.
Oh yeah, the little girl they tried to buffalo?
-The internets have responded and she’s exceeded her fundraising goal, all the way up to ~$80k at last count, to help kids in Africa. -BOOM!
