Farrah Abraham Has Never Heard Of Trayvon Martin. Let That Sink In For A Minute

fab1611ed1542ec38adf16b9d8809762I hate to sound all full of judgement here – oh who am I kidding no I don’t. I judge Farrah Abraham. I’ll admit that. I can never understand how a mother could make certain choices that will surely horrify her offspring eventually. But hearing that Farrah has no idea who Trayvon Martin is explains things a little. She lives in a bubble and clearly assumes her children will live there, too.

I should take a page out of her book. Some days I am so exhausted by the horrible news that I see and read – I can hardly function. Apparently there is a way to remain completely untouched by current events. I’m not sure how, but Farrah has managed it. She was a guest on a Blog Talk Radio show this week and was asked what she thought about Trayvon Martin, the teenager whose killer was recently acquitted in a very high profile trial. This was her response:

“I feel like I’ve met her or something. It sounds so familiar … I don’t know what she is so I can’t picture the person with the name right now.”

Come again? I don’t even know where to begin with this. First of all, that’s not even a sentence. “I don’t know what she is?” Um, how? How does this happen? I’m not kidding, I really want someone to tell me how you can be so oblivious to the world around you. Surely she understands that there exists a thing called “news,” right? Maybe not. CNN? Um, I think I’ve eaten there once but I’m not sure. 

The news often makes me sick and sad. Maybe she has it right. I’m pretty sure the complete oblivion she lives in explains why she thought a pregnancy test was necessary after anal sex. This really clears up a lot.

    Are we absolutely sure that she isn’t some kind of parasitic brain slug?

  • Amanda

    Can I just add that she had vaginal sex and anal sex on her video? I know the pregnancy test was prob a publicity stunt, but they did have vaginal sex and as we all know, you can become pregnant from precum.

    • brebay

      Thanks for clearing that up Amanda, way to home in on the important point of the story…smh

  • Moosefan

    She has also never heard of birth control, self respect, dignity, class, originality and just plain old common damn sense. Her fame clock is at 14:55 and 59 seconds.

    • Annie

      You forgot man hands and destroyer of children’s self-esteem. I just can’t bring myself to like someone who shames their toddlers into consenting to ripping hair from their face.

  • whiteroses

    In fairness, she’s not exactly part of the brain trust. Never has been.

    But this shizz is inexcusable. It’s like not knowing who the President is.

  • Rachel

    You can’t just not read the news to get to that level of ignorance…you have to actively hide from it.

  • Kat

    LOL! A pregnancy test! Anal. That’s good.

    What an airhead.

  • Sara610

    Isn’t this the same person who says she sees herself as a “role model” for young women?

    If my daughter, ever, EVER looks to Farrah Abraham as a role model, it means I have seriously effed up as a parent.

  • Beth

    This is precisely why I hate reality TV. I don’t necessarily believe we are enabling halfwits like this to be totally morons, but AT LEAST we shouldn’t be giving them celebrity status!!!

    Farrah gets on my nerves worse than any of the Teen Moms. Even more so than Amber or Leah. The way she talks to her mom is shameful, especially after all her parents do to help with Sophia. And it’s just one publicity stunt after another with her. I would like to think she isn’t the idiot she portrays herself to be, but if you’ve ever seen the way she tries to justify her stupidity, you know that it isn’t just an act. She honestly BELIEVES that she is doing the right thing and what’s best for her daughter. Also? God forbid her little girl isn’t the beauty queen that Farrah thinks she herself is. I think she’s gorgeous. But if you’d resort to waxing a 3 year old’s eyebrows because you think it makes her ugly, what would you do if she was awkward and unpopular? Farrah would probably just send her to live with her grandparents and forget she has a kid…. Which would, in my honest opinion, be the best thing for poor little Sophia.

    • A-nony-mous

      But her parents are the ones that raised her. I realize that after a certain points your kids make their own decisions but she wasn’t smart and *became* stupid in the last couple years. She was clearly *raised* to be a self-centered, self-indulgent, close-minded, socially-unaware moron so I feel like it’s lose-lose for Sophia. The grandparents will raise her to be just the same as they raised Farrah. They don’t see anything wrong with the way Farrah is. Farrah’s father was caught on video showing his pride that his daughter was doing hardcore pornography.

  • Andrea

    First of all, we all know that this women doesn’t exactly compete for the title of World’s Smartest Woman. I mean c’mon. Look at how she makes a living.

    Second of all, there are times, where it might be best to turn off the world outside of you. During the Newton tragedy, I just had to (HAD TO) disconnect, I could no longer bear it, it was destroying me and breaking my heart. It is pretty obvious from your writings that you are greatly affected by the Martin tragedy. You have just had a baby and a biiiiigggg move. Maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea for you to turn inward a little for a little while and just love your family and hug them close.

    • jasdfgh

      You had to turn away from the Newton tragedy because you knew of it and chose to not follow it, it hurt too much. That is understandable.

      Farrah isn’t even aware of this story. Big difference.

  • Jessica

    We’ve all heard of Farrah Abraham. Let that sink in for a second. :-(
