    Kenneth Tong… Completely a Dick. (Update)

    Well, this is turn up for the books isn’t it? Kenneth Tong has now posted a tweet saying that his managed anorexia campaign was a hoax, well that makes it all better then doesn’t it?

    No, it doesn’t.

    He states his reasons for picking an offensive and sickening topic to promote was to conduct an experiment to see if twitter can be used to garner huge publicity.  It worked but here at Rant Towers we’re still unsure as to whether to believe him or not.

    You have to think that after so much bad publicity, wouldn’t someone post something reversing their actions even if they did still believe it? Well we wouldn’t here but some people might.

    You can read his comments below.

    I think it is time for to come clean. The whole size zero thing is a hoax. It came about after an interesting discussion I had with a friend of mine. The discussion centered round whether it was possible, to go from nowhere to be a globally recognized figure within a week harnessing the power of the internet and specifically Twitter, which I have always maintained is a better medium than national TV. My friend said it wasn’t possible. I said it was. To prove him wrong, I decided as a hoax to promote via Twitter something that was universally appalling, I chose managed anorexia. I would like to make it clear, I chose the subject as a hoax as I knew it’d be appalling to men and women. The campaign has worked; I have been a Trending topic on Twitter for over a week. I am scheduled to appear on TV, the Press and Radio shows, over the course of the next week: Grazia, Telegraph, The Sun, The Sunday Times etc. Now it’s time to come clean and stop the bandwagon. My honest personal opinion on managed anorexia is it is an disgusting and illogical idea. It is a mental illness. It cannot be managed. To all the people I have offended as part of this scientific experiment, I would like to apologize to you and to show my sincerity I will making a sizeable donation to beat: the leading UK charity for people with eating disorders and their families. Furthermore, I have decided to auction my custom Apple iPod Nano watch on Ebay, the proceeds from this will be going to the charity, beat.

    Now if you don’t mind I’ll go back to actually focussing on something important and Mr. Tong you can go and crawl back under which ever rock you came from, now fuck off.

    Kenneth Tong – Completely Wrong.

     Posted in Anger Level 4 at 15:22 on Saturday, January 8th, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    Here we go and again, Twitter is a aflame with disgust at the recent Tweets of Kenneth Tong, over the past few months the self styled playboy has been posting offensive and sickening Tweets on the social networking website focussing on his “Endorsement of managed Anorexia”.

    He’s clearly forgetting something.

    Let’s just take a moment to discuss what Anorexia actually is.  The following is an excerpt from the Merriam-Webster MedLine Plus service.

    Anorexia

    A serious eating disorder primarily of young women in their teens and early twenties that is characterized especially by a pathological fear of weight gain leading to faulty eating patterns, malnutrition, and usually excessive weight loss

    So now we’ve summed it up, it’s pretty obvious that Anorexia is a severe mental health illness which can lead to death.  Now Mr. Tong why are you endorsing it’s use for weight loss? What exactly are you going to get out of it, except a load of publicity for about a week before you’re forgotten and we all move on to the next idiot? Mr. Tong is under the impression that encouraging young impressionable people to starve themselves is the right thing to do.  I have first hand experience of helping someone with a severe eating disorder and let me tell you this it’s not fun.  I watch someone put themselves through a horrifying ordeal on a daily basis to make themselves thin, and guess what?

    There was nothing I could do to stop them.

    So Mr. Tong before you spout you’re hateful and sickening bullshit to everyone take a moment to think about the people who have to clean up the mess people like you cause, and those who have to deal with the effects of an eating disorder on those they care about.  Grow up and come to the real world.  Alternatively keep your bullshit to yourself and don’t bother us anymore.
