By now we've all seen and heard the Natalia Kills and Willy Moon X Factor scandal. There's no doubt, what they both said to Joe Irvine was unacceptable, however, how much hate should the public throw at these two?
Whatever happened to "two wrongs don't make a right"? Yes, Natalia and Willy berated and humiliated poor Joe, and in camp Gumption that shit just don't fly... but what do we do after the entire world joins in on the hate campaign against these two? Is that ok?
Natalia Kills is a name that before this incident, most of us hadn't heard of. She was born Natalia Noemi Cappuccini-Sinclair in Bradford, UK, and is married to New Zealander Willy Moon (you've probably heard his for his single 'Yeah Yeah' which was used by Apple in their 2012 iPod advert). Her recent contribution to Madonna's number one album Rebel Heart should have made this a time to celebrate... but then "we have a doppelgänger in our midst" happened.
The world erupted in a way that, in my opinion, is far more ugly than the original comments. Yes, Natalia and Willy you should not have done what you did, it was mean, uncalled for, and downright nasty. But does Natalia deserve to be told that she should "get ovarian cancer so bad that she can't have kids"? Is it right to tell her to "kill herself..."? And, wishing her to be filled with "AIDS infested jizz" is just an eye for an eye, right?
What then happens when Natalia Kills apologises? Those things were sent AFTER she apologised. In my book, if someone is big enough to admit their mistake and show remorse, then I'm willing to forgive. Who on this earth hasn't made a mistake before? I know I have, so I am I judge someone else?
For all the keyboard warriors out there who are posting horrendous and disgusting things to this couple, enough is enough now! Let this situation rest, it's over, let it go, and go back to your own life.
You don't have to like Natalia Kills or Willy Moon, but you can be decent enough to leave them alone now. Worse things have happened in this world, so let's all take a moment and gain a little perspective.
