It all started on Wednesday night, when Meghan McCain breasts were exposed to the world via Twitter and Twitpic. The original Twitter post linked to a now deleted image of her reading a book (Arthur Danto’s new biography of Andy Warhol, no less).
Admittedly, The Daily Beast columnist has admitted that her love life was killed by her father's 2008 Presidential campaign, but one could hardly imagine why that is so by looking at Meghan McCain's breasts in that mirror image. Seriously, though, the posting drew a number of rude ahd hateful comments, some of which called her a slut, or worse.
There were also a number of supporting comments, but the point of the post was not to show off Meghan McCain's breasts, but to show how mundane her life is. Despite that, people were all over it. It was reminiscent of the hate thrown at her because of her relative centrist right-wing views. You will recall Laura Ingraham called McCain fat, for example.
The supportive comments told Meghan McCain that a) she didn't need to apologize (which she did anyway), b) she was beautiful. Since then, rather than crass comments, it appears the chase is now on for images of Meghan McCain's breasts. It's not like she's going to show up in nude images like some b-list celebrity, though. In reality, she's never done anything like this before, and as she explained, it was all innocent. As she said on Twitter:
so I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut, this is why I have been considering deleting my twitter account, what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassmentLater, she thought better of it, and apologized on Twitter, though many told her not to.
I am going to take some more time to think about it but seriously I was just trying to be funny with the book and that I'm a dork staying in
when I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a "slut", I can't even tell you how hurt I am
ok I am getting the f*** off twitter, promise not to delete my account until I sleep on it, thank you for the nice words supporters
do want to apologize to anyone that was offended by my twitpic, I have clearly made a huge mistake and am sorry 2 those that are offended.zHoping to put a cap on the whole matter, Meghan McCain posted a new Daily Beast article today. The first comment on the post (unless it is flagged and removed)? It was one word: slut. One day later, there are still boobs around, but they are not Meghan McCain's breasts.
