In Defense of Lara Kay
I am not quite sure why a video blogger is getting so much opprobrium from Lebanese bloggers. I’m slightly bothered that most of the criticism is about her physical appearance and the fact that she had what appears to be a botched plastic surgery.
Perhaps what she says or does is not our cup of tea. Maybe you find her work shallow, mediocre, and even pointless. But it’s YouTube for Peet’s sake. Only freaks make it on YouTube and don’t be surprised if she eventually gets more views than all of our blogs’ readership combined.
By criticizing her we’re making the same mistake of those who criticize our blogs and ask “who on earth reads this stuff?”. As we have discovered, there’s a place for all kinds of content online. So give Lara a break and let her do her thing..
