#RacistHunter Trending Following Accusations That Hunter Biden Used Racial Slurs In Texts
WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 12: WFP USA Chairman Hunter Biden speaks during the World Food Program … [+]
Hunter Biden was not without controversy, and President Joe Biden’s son was on the news again Tuesday afternoon after British tabloid The Daily Mail reported the younger Biden used the N-word multiple times in text messages with his white man, $ 845 per hour shift.
The authenticity of the allegations has not been verified, but the Daily Mail reported that Hunter Biden exchanged texts with his attorney George Mesires in December 2018 joking about a “big penis” and saying, “I only love you because you” re black “and” true dat n *** a. “The exchange reportedly continued, with the President’s son adding,” How much money do I owe you?
The British newspaper included screenshots of the alleged exchange as well as a second conversation between the two in which the younger Biden also used the racial slur. The text exchange is said to have been discovered on the 51-year-old’s computer, which was “abandoned” in a computer workshop in Delaware in 2019. Previously it was reported that the laptop also had pornographic photos and a video of. contained a multi-person orgy.
The news coverage of the alleged text exchange comes just a week after President Biden delivered a speech denouncing racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre, in which hundreds of African Americans died.
Breaking news or fake news?
It wasn’t long after the initial reports that the hashtag #RacistHunter and #RacistBiden became trending on social media, although only The Daily Mail had access to the alleged texts and no other news outlets came forward to confirm the reports. Any subsequent news that was published related to the original coverage of The Daily Mail, but the “news” still circulated on social platforms.
It should be feared that this story has taken on a life of its own on social media without the allegations being confirmed. According to technology analyst Rob Enderle of the Enderle Group, this is “particularly true as it would have been golden during the election, so the likelihood that this is a fake in this case is unusually high.”
It’s also worth asking yourself about the motivations of those who published the story.
“While it could generate additional website traffic or sell a few more newspapers, it will likely generate inquiries about how the articles were acquired in the first place,” said Charles King, senior analyst at Pund-IT. “If the ownership chain is tainted in any way, I expect lawyers who work for those who published the texts will be earning overtime in the coming weeks or months.”
Skeletons in the digital closet
Whether these allegations are actually true is not yet known, but Hunter Biden has already revealed some skeletons in his closet. The question is, how does anyone “get back” from such egregious missteps online?
“If that’s true, then many, if not most, sympathize, as each family or group of friends seem to have a similar character,” King said.
“The ability of social media – or in this case, a digital record of private texts and communications – to evoke the ghosts of past mistakes and misdeeds is worth considering,” added King. “This is not the first and will not be the last time a public figure has been personally humiliated by something from their past. The nature of digital and online media enables us to remember actions and events and them.” to save indefinitely. “
The other lesson from this story could be that it’s not just the skeletons in your closet that can cause problems – and as politicians, CEOs, and others have learned, family members can be a serious burden.
“For those of us who have worried our relatives and sweatballs that people aren’t doing what people are doing here with Hunter and Joe Biden, this is an unfortunate reminder of what could happen if we ever get into politics “, Enderle quipped. “I now feel sorry for many of the children who have had a similar loss of control as I did, or those with substance abuse problems who overcame them and who have been shared on social media. Finally, this shows once again that social Media forever and “alone can justify the extra money on a paid Twitter subscription that offers at least some protection for this kind of stupidity.”
