Sup ya beautiful bastards? Hope you’re having a fantastic Tuesday Welcome back to the Philip DeFranco show And let’s just jump into it And the first thing I want to talk about today is a story revolving around YouTube and the reason for that is there is a story that has come out recently about a 13-year-old girl who was reportedly compulsively watching YouTube videos to the point that her parents put her in rehab for digital addiction. So the 13-year-old girl, we’ll call her Olivia because her name is being protected because she’s a minor The report says that she was always a nerd, she was a straight A student she was in competitive choir But quote And so Olivia said and then at home, her parents said she would just continue to watch YouTube for hours the report then said she started watching girls fight on video. Olivia saying Oliva said there was a lot going on at the time her parents were always arguing her grandmother had just died she was starting to have problems with school At one point in all of this Olivia told her mom she wanted to hang herself. and so her mom took her to a hospital she was at a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch for a week. Then 3 weeks later she ended up back in the hospital, after downing a whole bottle of Tylenol. Olivia saying she got the idea online with YouTube videos. and so after that last instance, they checked their daughter into Paradigm it’s this high end addiction recovery center for teens the 6 week stint she’ll do there will cost her $60,000 And Jeff Nalin, the head psychologist and co-founder of Paradigm said now that said I agree with more of the mind set of Patrick Markey, Patrick is a Professor of Psychology at Villanova University and he says that we should slow down before labeling this an addiction, saying If anything I think you could say it’s an indulgence problem that’s where people over indulge in sex, food, exercise, religion, work, and once you start saying addiction you start fear mongering To say that this is close to meth, or heroin It’s just not comparable and based off of everything else we saw with young Olivia’s story, it seemed like she was just looking for somewhere to escape. She wanted to belong, there was trouble at home She didn’t feel like she had anybody so she escaped to the internet like so many people do. She escaped her reality and then became reliant on what allowed her to escape. and unfortunately, there’s not a lot of substance there especially if it’s just consumption and not interaction and I find it extremely troublesome that people who charge $10,000 a week for someone trying to get help are perpetuating this idea that this is a huge massive problem. And I think it’s pretty easy to see someone running a facility, like Jeff Nalin, why they would be incentivized to do that. I do think that people need to learn the skills to handle what they want to over indulge in. whether it be food or exercise, or consuming internet content but to focus just on that and not acknowledge that it seems that there’s a lot more that that pushed her to this point, that seems like a big disservice to this at risk child Like I say in most all my shows, this is the Philip DeFranco show. It is the facts, it’s the opinion, And then the conversation. I wanna know what you think Do you think Internet or YouTube addiction is a real thing? Do you think a side effect?
Yes, no, I just wanna know what you think and why you thinkin’ it so let me know down below but from there, I wanna share some stuff I loved today in ‘Today in Awesome’ brought to you by the Boys Will Be Boys But Girls Can Also be Boys if They Want, I Mean, I Don’t Want to Offend Anyone, I Mean, Also Gender Identity Can be a Little Bit Fluid, I Mean, AAHH, I’m Just – I’m Not Gonna Sell This Shirt – shirt we released that shirt as a joke a week and a half ago and over 1700 of you bought them my mailbox has been flooded with people asking for it back, so, for the next few days it’s available again the link to that down below and the first bit of awesome is self-promo awesome if you don’t know, we post behind the scenes vlogs Monday, Wednesday, Friday over at youtube.com/phillyd even though there wasn’t a regular PDS yesterday we did post one of those so you can check that out also, if you’re in the mood for something that’s a little bit more long form, yesterday since I gave my team Memorial Day off, I didn’t have any editing help, I just did a live stream an hour and a half of taking questions from the Nation, the video’s unlisted, so if you wanna see it, you just have to go to the link then if you’re a fan of bloopers, we got bloopers for Deadpool then, if you didn’t see, uh, this happened I love his grin, it’s just like ‘yeah that just, I just did that, you’re welcome’ then we got the trailer for Logan Lucky starring Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, and the, the best description I’ve seen of this movie so far is it looks like the redneck version of Oceans 11 then for red nose day, the BAMF that is Stephen Amell hit the Ninja Warrior course and just destroyed his first run and then just consider this your friendly reminder for awesome season 5 of House of Cards is now out right before filming, I watched the first episode I am so glad this show is back also, if you’ve never watched the series, I could, I could not recommend it more just keep in mind season 3 is a transition season but then it comes back with a punch and if you wanna see the full versions of everything I just shared, the secret link of the day, anything at all, links, as always, are in the description down below and then let’s talk about Terry Frei and the Indianapolis 500 in the news Terry Frei is a sports writer for the Denver Post and the Indianapolis 500 is a race and the winner of this year’s Indianapolis 500 was a driver by the name of Takuma Sato and this was a big deal for the sport, not only did he win, but he was actually the first Asian driver to ever win the Indianapolis 500 and there were a lot of people celebrating this milestone but Terry Frei was not one of them Terry tweeted and that comment hit a lot of people in a bad way many people shouting back ‘really?!’ you feel uncomfortable because a man who is Japanese won a sporting event during Memorial Day weekend a day and connected weekend where we are remembering and we are honoring those who fell while in service it made you feel uncomfortable because the Japanese and Americans, they killed each other during a war that ended in 1945 and in response to the outrage, Terry doubled down on his statement saying and people kept calling him out until Terry ended up deleting those tweets and just posted ‘I apologize’ and then Terry released a much longer statement, saying he then talks about his father’s service in World War II he then talks about the death of what he calls his father’s teammates but even with that satement, the Denver Post reportedly let him go and I have to say, stories like this are always interesting to me because when someone has a moment like this, it makes me wonder what is the real situation is this an emotional time that causes someone to be irrational and say things they don’t mean or is this an emotional moment that let loose the feelings that someone had that he actively holds a grudge although he tries to hide it, all these years after World War II against people that weren’t a part of it against people of the same background but whose life experience knows no war in my head, I think it could be either, but actually, I wanna pass this question onto you what do you think? I’d love to know your thoughts on this one then let’s ju- (laughing) let’s just get this out of the way yesterday morning, Tiger Woods was arrested for a DUI and this resulted in two primary reactions from people the first being that there were a ton of people tweeting that they were confused how the police could’ve even told he was under the influence in the first place this because they said anyone who’s been paying attention knows Tiger hasn’t been able to drive straight for 10 years I saw 15 people make that same joke, still funny every time to me then the second were people memeing Tiger Woods mugshot but there’s been a big update to this story reportedly the probable cause affidavit for this incident has been published online it says Tiger Woods was approached by police at 2:03 in the morning, they found him asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes with his flashers and break lights on after police woke him up, Tiger Woods said he had no idea where he was the report saying Woods asked how far from his house he was he reportedly then failed 4 field sobriety tests the report also saying when Woods was asked to do the alphabet test, he responded “yes, recite entire National Anthem backwards” but to all the people asking why would you drink and drive, it turned out he didn’t his breathalyzer that he submitted to was 000 nothin,’ nada but, turns out he was on several prescription drugs under medical conditions it lists although it noted that viox had not been taken this year so we don’t know if it was all three, but it does seem like it was prescription drugs especially since Tiger Woods has now released a statement where he says and looking at all of this new information coming out, I don’t know if it necessarily even makes it better he wasn’t drinking but he was on prescription medication not only is someone just taking medication, but as an athlete, you need to know exactly what could happen when you put something into your body and whether it be drinking or drugs, he made the choice not to call a car service he made a choice to not only put himself at risk, but everyone else on the road that night at risk and I say this as someone that’s not really excited to tear down Tiger Woods I remember being a kid watching him destroy the competition, change the game get that green jacket I’m also not gonna give this guy a pass, we, what we’ve seen is Tiger Woods biggest enemy in his entire life has been himself and then let’s talk about what happened on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives so set the scene for you, emotions are high around a thing called Senate bill 4, SB4 it was signed into Texas law by the governor this month, and reportedly so then fast forward to Monday, it’s the last day of the state legislature’s regular sessions there’s a large protest happening against SB4 in the building and then thanks to video in the room, we see that there is a scuffle on the House floor as far as why this happened, several Democrats said that Republican Matt Rinaldi came over, started yelling and cursing in their face Democrat Philip Cortez saying ICE for those that don’t know are Immigration and Customs Enforcement and then it very much becomes a game of he said, she said Matt Rinaldi going on Facebook to say so Matt’s version of events is I saw some people that said that they were illegal and here to stay, so I called Immigration and Customs to deal with someone that was here illegally then when I informed the Democrats of this, they turned things physical and threatened my life so I responded, I would defend myself but the Democrats had a different version of events Representative Raymond Romero Jr releasing a statement saying so it’s a different version of events, but I don’t find myself leaning to believe that last statement because it seems to go against what we saw in video to say that Rinaldi was held back and that there was no assault I mean, you, you see it 13 seconds in the video, Poncho comes over and pushes Rinaldi then in a press conference after this incident, Poncho says this “for that guy to say what he did and think that there is no reckoning or no repercussions or nothin’ coming, he’s wrong “and today he just picked the wrong people to say that to, and he’s lucky that there were more people around “because while pushing and shoving and anything beyond that isn’t acceptable, and it shouldn’t happen “out there, and I’m sorry it happened, the fact is, he’s asking for it” he picked the wrong people to talk to, he was asking for it, he’s lucky more people were around it looks and sounds like he was the one that made it physical and not only that, but it also kinda seemed like there was a threat there and so because parts of those statements don’t seem to match up at all, it makes me question the entire thing I don’t know a lot about his backstory, his history, and, and maybe Rinaldi is a disgusting person and he said the worst version of what everyone said was said but the moment it switches from words to the physical, you lose the high ground because a big focus of this whole conversation could’ve been were there actually people there holding signs that said ‘I’m illegal and here to stay’? so was he just calling ICE on those people or he was just like ‘oh look at all these brown people here, sic ’em ICE’? right? and that sounds more like, uh, ‘hey they’re different, round ’em up’ and when I looked into this, I personally couldn’t find people holding signs that said ‘illegal and here to stay’ at this incident so the big focus of this story could have been on that but instead, no because of your desire to hurt someone physically, you hurt your argument and that’s actually where I’m gonna end today’s story, now I’d love to know what you think about this story, one side’s wrong, one side’s a liar, no, everyone’s in the wrong here love to know what you think here or the first story, anything in between that’s actually
