The Philly Outrage Meter for the Week Ending September 12, 2014
During the week ending September 12, 2014, Philadelphians, it seemed, were most outraged over the whole LeSean McCoy 20-Cent Tip at PYT saga, which garnered approximately 90% of the total outrage according to our precise calculations. What remains unclear, however, is whether more people were outraged at LeSean McCoy for leaving the 20-cent tip, or at PYT owner Tommy Up for publicly outing him for it. But suffice to say, PYT has been working hard to scrub all of the new one-star Yelp reviews it has received since the McCoy backlash began — reviews left by people who have never been to PYT.
Precisely 1% of the outrage is being directed at the outrageously bad Philadelphia schools.
And the rest of the outrage (9%) is divided between outrage over changing the name of Fishtown to Northern Liberties II, the outrage over bad Philly cops, the outrage over Atlantic City, the outrage over slave jokes, the outrage over what is and what is not “torture porn,” and the outrage over the Ray Rice situation.
