Note to Self: Don’t Try and Sell the Kids on Facebook.

Yeah, you did read that title correctly.  A woman has been trying to flog her children on Facebook.  The scary thing?  She actually had interest.  I’m one of those annoying people who insist that the world is a beautiful place and people are good.  But stuff like this makes my argument harder and harder to make.

Misty VanHorn, a mother from Oklahoma, was arrested after actively being involved in the illegal trafficking of her two children.  Offering a ‘package deal’ of $4,000 for the two of them.  Why did she need the money you ask? She wanted to bail her boyfriend of out jail.  Officially making her the world’s worst person.  Made us all a bit sick here at Giraffe.

We wanted to share it to show that although we all love social media, there are people out there tainting it with their awful actions.  It is all of ours job to ensure that if we see anything like this, we report it.  Keep our social media awesome.
