It's hard to think anyone would ever "go there" comparing Breaking Bad -- a fictional television show -- with real-life violence that directly impacts people's lives. One is entertainment/art, the other is... reality. But that's what Philadelphia local newscaster Joyce Evans did with this highly controversial tweet about shootings in Southwest Philadelphia.

Yeah, she probably regrets that. Personally, I don't think it's a big deal -- people say stupid shit on Twitter all the time. I think it's emblematic of how Twitter is driving the people who use it heavily -- especially people in the media -- fucking insane. For some personalities, Twitter-as-a-medium has become a pissing/dick-measuring/ego-masturbating contest of sickening proportions:
proof twitter is driving perfectly normal people completely fucking insane https://t.co/PsmvWmlFyX— Brandon Wenerd (@brandonwenerd) October 7, 2013
