I have several friends that have been having a good ole' time with this on their facebook. Seems to be a 50/50 split on who thinks it's great and those that are critisizing what he did.
I personally loved it, but I listened to what he said and since I am living what he is going through, I'm probably more sympathetic to his plight and applauded him. I heard him say they just went through her doing something else that she got punished for before this. Her rant on facebook was terrible. Sure, all kids want to rant about their parents, but her vocabulary and choice of words to me, were so disrespectful and embarrassing. It sounded to me like they are trying to balance having her do chores and helping out with rewarding her (spending the money to upgrade her laptop) and such. I was much more upset with people automatically basing their opinion on how they thought he looked. The cigarette, setting, clothes and accent made many people call him "redneck" "ignorant country boy" and such. If you listened to his words, he's college educated, owns his own clinic of some sort and left home at an early age and made something of himself. At least, that's what I heard.
I saw it on a news sites facebook page and Dad actually was on their commenting to people. He was very respectful to them although many of them were calling him names and saying how stupid he was. He posted that him and his DD had talked about it afterwards and that she agreed what she had done was very wrong. He offered to let her post her own youtube, in response to his and say what she wanted and she declined, telling him she wasn't interested in doing that. He said she was still grounded and lost most of her things in punishment and she was doing fine. He also said that instead of embarrassing her she had become a celebrity at school among her friends and everyone was finding it hilarious, so that was probably why she took it so well.
