When used correctly, the internet can be a brilliant place to fill our brains with facts and new information. At the click of a mouse, we can have a world of knowledge and salt bae memes at our fingertips. Unfortunately, a lot of people bypass the opportunity to evolve, and instead choose to spread ignorance and NO salt bae memes. A prime example of this bent towards misinformation (and neglect of the now mostly retired salt bae meme) occurred when the kickboxing world champion Andrew Tate tweeted that depression isn't real. Cool opinion, bro. And by cool opinion, I mean "yikes, please don't further stigmatize a very real sickness that regularly causes people to take their own lives."
"Depression isn't real. You feel sad, you move on. You will always be depressed if your life is depressing. Change it. Thread," Tate wrote on Thursday.
