Man ordered to Apologize 100 times on twitter






A social activist in Malaysia attempting to shine a spotlight on a magazine publisher that allegedly mistreated an employee has been reprimanded in a most unusual way. In punishment for Fahmi Fadzil's offenses, which include defaming Blu Inc. Media, a judge has sentenced him to apologize to the company 100 times onTwitter. The charge initially stemmed from a claim Fadzil made that a female friend of his was being mistreated by the employer, which he posted on Twitter a few days earlier.
The tweets, which Fadzil has 3 days to complete, read as follows: "I've DEFAMED Blu Inc Media & Female Magazine. My tweets on their HR Policies are untrue. I retract those words & hereby apologize." Each tweet is also numbered for what we imagine is the benefit of anyone monitoring the sentence being carried out.
Public forms of punishment aren't unheard of, and some judges here in the United States require shoplifters and other petty criminals to wear signs announcing their crimes to the public. But taking a public apology sentence to a social network is a rather new angle, and one that may not only work in Fadzil's favor — by drawing attention to his original claim — but also seems to be making him into a bit of a social networkcelebrity.

Bam Commentary: Twitter is never gonna go away after this lol.

Get The Mixtape Now You know the drill when most unsigned new artists drop a mixtape: disappointing generic- sounding music, tired themes, lame lyrics, fake bravado on the visuals. But then, every so often, a new rapper hits the streets and just like a tasty cheeseburger, the more you bite off and chew, the better he gets. Put your order in now and make it official; “It’s Me” by Young Vinchi is 2012’s best- kept tasty secret. No need to take the D Train uptown to the Bronx’s Bainbridge Avenue to get it, Young Vinchi – with his clever rhymes, sly imagination and hype J Staffz beats - brings it to you . “It’s Me” – hosted by DJ Lyle of BET’s 106 and Park - appeals to all your senses of having fun, looking good, feeling good, being young at the club: smokin’, drinkin’ and thinkin’, chasing “Shaquana and Shaquita”, and getting paid. The music - layered sonic arrangements of speaker-rattling percussion bombs, horns and keyboards- is a human bobble-head soundtrack. No
