I know, I know, I know.
Stuff are suggesting the reason Kamahl left TVNZ Breakfast was because of inappropriate comments.
Before we start the Lynch mob and ritualistic crucifixion of Kamahl, does everybody remember when Stuff made the exact same claim against Martin Devlin and it turned out that the inappropriate comments they alluded to were Devlin dressing down an employee who was shitting all over NZME at work?
Remember how Stuff’s allegations goaded Martin into a suicide attempt because of the lies?
So Stuff, who are always trying to find the next MeToo monster, are doing the exact same thing they did with Devlin to Kamahl and no one is pausing and just charging ahead with the witch burning?
Could I humbly suggest we don’t actually know what has happened here and maybe before going full Lynch mob, we should wait until we actually know anything?
Once upon a time people were innocent before being proven guilty.
UPDATE: So far all we have are rumours, more speculation and gossip provided as ‘evidence’. Post MeToo the evidential threshold is now whatever someone says on Twitter, the Salem Witch Trials had more jurisprudence. Stuff have claimed he sent a ‘lewd’ email and kissed a co-worker. That’s what his career is being crucified over? A ‘lewd’ email and a kiss? Wow.
