In April  2012, Tashay Edwards, 19 of Ohio, took a shot at using Twitter beef to gain her 15 minutes of fame as had herself taped confronting a thus-far unnamed female.  While her friend(s) watched, Edwards walked right up to the girl’s door, and when the girl came out, told her she wanted to fight her and why.  In the middle of the girl trying to explain her side, it became quite clear Edwards didn’t come to talk as she brutally attacked the girl, stomped her in the head, drug her down porch stair and continued to beat her savagely-even when the girl stopped trying to fight back-  until her friends became concerned and told her to stop.  World Star Hip Hop got a hold of the video and over 2 million hits later, Edwards had everyone’s attention, just like she wanted. However, that fame had come with a price. On April 19th, Edwards was arrested.

The police log reads that at 8:14 pm “2500 block Washington Ave., Tashay D. Edwards, 19, 100 blocks Spring St., arrested and charged with assault and violation of a temporary protection order. A woman, who said she has had ongoing problems with Edwards, said Edwards repeatedly punched her and ripped her shirt off.” The video does not depict a woman have her shirt ripped off.

It both saddens and disgusts me to see the power the world has given Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites.  From Evelyn Lozado – very grown woman- to this teenager, people are letting the words of others affect them to the point that they are no longer in control of their emotions.

What makes the situation so disparaging is that Twitter and any other site can be logged off of, and offensive posts erased/blocked.

One wonders why the victim didn’t simply close the door when Edwards stated quite clearly that she wanted to fight.  My guess she was trying to dissolve the issue before it went any further, but she obviously didn’t get the chance.

The girls accompanying Edwards should be arrested as well for that premeditated assault. Nothing has been heard from any of the parents involved and it makes me wonder about accountability for these young girls pretending to be grown.

Let this be a lesson to parents and children everywhere: 15 minutes of fame is more expensive than you think.  Years more expensive….AND BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST ONLINE…
