Pop Rocks: Sharkeisha, the Viral Sensation Surrounding a Sucker Puncher from Houston
Second, these are two girls. I know that girl fights have been celebrated from porn to Seinfeld, but the real thing is only cringe-inducing and not the slightest bit sexy.
But all of this I could excuse as the kind of childish giggling all too common when a running back is said to have "penetrated" the line of scrimmage. Droll. What is most annoying is the fact that it was her name that clearly propelled this into the viral stratosphere. Yes, Sharkeisha sounds like a collaboration between BET, the SyFy Network and Tyler Perry. We get it. But, it's a person's name -- allegedly a combination of her father (Sharma) and her mother (Keisha). To be fair, I'm not sure I understand how the parents couldn't see that putting "shark" in their daughter's name might be prohibitive, but people name their kids Frodo and ESPN, so what do I know.
Still, the video is of an asshole and she is being glorified (by some) because her name is funny sounding. The hashtag #sharkeisha blew up Twitter after the video was posted and her name has turned into a million moderately funny (in certain cases) meme-like Photoshopped images.
Look, Internet, I get that you collectively have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old nerd boy who has never seen a girl naked (in person) and who spends his time debating Kirk versus Picard and playing World of Warcraft with your online "friends," but let's try to have a modicum of decency when it comes to stuff like this. Next time you want to think this is funny, go down to your basement and smack your face against the wall hard. If you thought that felt good, then, by all means, laugh all you want. Otherwise, leave it for what it is, a jerk sucker punching a former friend over a guy who probably isn't worth it.
