Stab magazine Editor-in-Chief Ashton Goggans may be Amber Heard.
How quickly do the wheels of justice turn these days? Three, literally three, minutes ago I posted a story regarding Zoom adjacent to Venice Beach Stab magazine decision to describe the world’s greatest surfer Stephanie Gilmore as “a coke-head with OCD” on Instagram.
The offering received mixed results.
Many thought it was funny and “edgy.”
Many more thought inappropriate and odd, especially for a property that consistently makes a point to fall on the side of “woke” clearly “the right side of history” in our current culture war.
As is its wont, Stab disappeared the offending post within a literal three minutes of a fine BeachGrit offering which… ouch!
Not even 24 hours of fun?
But also, is a media property truly “woke” by what they choose to leave live, swinging on “funny” and “cool” when the spirit strikes, or does a media property actually have to be “woke” and only post “woke” offerings?
I don’t actually know.
I’m perpetually confused by deleting anything.
History judges us and look at how it judged Johnny Depp.
A fun derelict.
Stab magazine Editor-in-Chief Ashton Goggans may be Amber Heard. Or…. whoever that other girl is.
More as the story develops.
