Ladies listen up! The gram’s unforgiving. Here’s a weekend warning that could save you some serious long-term social embarrassment, so for the next 3 minutes, open your mind and put the selfie stick down.

In case you’ve been living beneath a rock and aren’t hip to the trending digital slangs, THOT is an abbreviation for ‘That Hoe over there.” With that said, if someone refers to you as such, don’t smile. It isn’t something to be proud of. Since its advent, Instagram’s seemingly been the spot to throw out all inhibition, but truth be told, it’s also the the spot many go to, to ridicule and throw around uncaring comments (shade), something that’s led a lot of young people to depression and even suicide.

That intentional photo of your ass posted to the ‘gram could brand you an “insta thot”…

‘Insta-Thotting’ has sadly become a trend among the young and care free and while many have assented to the online activity in the name of free expression and pride, truth be told, acting like a thot, especially if you aren’t really one isn’t cool at all. It could cost you big time! In fact, if you’re considering a career in a professional field, we’d suggest you anticipate the likelihood of a prospective employer snooping through your social profiles… and while that could be considered a bit unethical and possibly borderline discriminatory should they refuse to hire you based on your social profile, who’d really know that’s what they did!? Best advice – make your profile private if you’re bent on being an insta-thot!

The rush by media outlets to be “first” is proving to be a problem. Even as investigators scrambled to the scene of the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine persons in Los Angeles on Sunday, US media outlet, TMZ had been informing the world that basketball star, and father of four, Kobe Bryant had been killed. The rush to be first is now being criticised, with several people in authority lamenting the fact that family members may not have been given the news just one hour after the incident had taken place. TMZ had however broken the story, sending the world into a state of shock.

The media outlet was criticised by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who told reporters, “It would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one … perished and you learn about it from TMZ.” He said TMZ had posted the story a little more than one hour after police said they received reports of a downed aircraft.

Los Angeles County Undersheriff Tim Murakami also criticised TMZ in a tweet. “I am saddened that I was gathering facts as a media outlet reported … Kobe had passed,” Murakami wrote. “I understand getting the scoop but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones. It’s very cold to hear of the loss via media. Breaks my heart.”

Kobe Bryant leaves to mourn, his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it was insensitive for TMZ to run with the report before ensuring family members had been notified or do you think it goes with the territory?

Was TMZ Wrong for Running the Story on Kobe's death before confirming the family Had been notified?
