Astonishing News Article

I found this article on the Yahoo Home page… I still feel sick to my stomach. Why am I sharing this? I’m not sure. Maybe to protest against the attitude of the media, or how much this is NOT Okay.

Spider-Man crashes during a show at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus

By Reid McCarter Wed, June 15, 2022, 10:30 AM

In a moment that must be watched repeatedly if we are ever to truly understand its gravity, we hear Spider-Man announce “Here goes something!” before he goes swinging into view above Disneyland’s Avengers Campus. Spider-Man’s limbs lock up at the top of his arc through the sky, rendering him unable to safely descend. Heroic music swells in the background as he yells out “Airbags, please!” in vain. A moment later the web crawler smashes back-first into the side of a building, crashing against a wall and disappearing from sight.

The crowd gasps, and then a robotic voice announces that the facility Spider-Man has just rocketed into “is not equipped with airbags,” and we hear the simple, pitiful last words of the hero as his life ebbs away. “Okay,” Spider-Man replies.

Okay.

An Instagram user named Darren L. captured the footage at Disneyland California, writing that “the show briefly stopped for a couple of hours but was back up and running later!” This, unfortunately, shows that, for The House Of Mouse, the horrific takedown of even a marquee superhero is simply just business for them—something to be moved on from immediately.

The show must go on. The people must be entertained. A new Spider-Person must immediately step into the still-warm, bloodstained suit of their predecessor and swing around a theme park.

The only redeeming quality of this video is the fact that it is short, unlike the above article which gets more horrifying as you read.
