Just as you think that the Amanda Todd bizarreness can’t get any more bizarre, it goes to Bizarre Max.
What’s the latest gem in this ongoing saga?
‘After that, Amanda was bullied no matter what school she attended. It was too much when even her boyfriend and his parents went on the attack’.
Where the Hell did that come from? It has to be Carol Todd releasing a snippet of information like that. She desperately wants all the people involved to suffer, but she can’t actually just come out with it and give the list of names. So instead we get a hint – boyfriend and his parents. I can’t see where else this would have come from, and it is really strange that it’s cropped up so late in the story, and on the Entertainments page of a newspaper. Normally, it would have gone completely unnoticed, but not by me, of course.
So who’s the boyfriend? My money is on two names in the frame – Renan Tarras or Brandon Reid. But which one?
Renan Tarras is a twerp. We have a rather odd rumour that he was involved in an accusation of rape from Amanda, but surely we can write that off as being totally untrue? Mind you, nothing can ever be written off as untrue in this old malarkey. It’s possible. If Amanda did accuse Renan of rape, I guess the parents would have gone berserk, especially with all the other palaver going on.
Brandon Reid? Hmmm…..that, too, is possible. His name fell out of the story ages ago, and I took it out of some of the blog entries just so it would be forgotten as irrelevant. But now, surely, it’s fair game to bring the Reid family back in as unwitting guest stars?
Before long, there won’t be a person in Creation who hasn’t been blamed in some way (except Carol, of course). Blimey, we had every young kid in British Columbia blamed for it, then we had every capper in the world blamed, we had the cops, the school, the mental health authorities, me …… and now the mystery boyfriend’s parents.
The quote comes from the Toronto Star:
And just in case it gets censored by the Todd Stasi:
As usual – I bring you the news that is news.
