Would you please stop, just stop?

I'm sitting here trying to figure out exactly how to word this. I am friends on facebook with an aunt of an acquaintance. I can't really say why I keep her on facebook, i'm not one to delete people I guess. Though I am a bit frustrated, it's not really cause for me to delete her. She has been posting these "(insert celebrity name here) says s/he will leave the US if Trump gets elected." Ok so I don't follow celebrity news, I hardly follow any news. However, I am almost certain that these people HAVE NOT said this, and that it is more likely that these images (memes if you will) have been made by people who aren't fans of the celebrity. Either way, who cares if they stay or go. Are they really hurting you by being here? Also, even if they did leave the country, they would still perform in our country, they'd still be famous in our country. It's not as if they'd drop off the face of the earth. There are celebrities that are American born but have moved to other countries, or have vacation homes in other countries. We still know of them, they still perform. STOP POSTING these silly memes that doesn't do anything. They aren't going to see that such and such has posted this and suddenly go "That does it, they are right, I AM LEAVING." So just stop... Please?

It can be very annoying if you a lot of friends on Facebook because the page is often littered with drab nonsense and takes ages to bypass.

Also, in certain occassions, littered with the same post over and over (people re-sharing). Honestly I have subscribed to a lot of pages that interest me so I tend to see them more than anything.

@ScribbledAdNauseum It can be very annoying to have the same garbage appearing from several sources, but fortunately I keep a very minimum friends group and it rarely happens.

You can bock the persons post but still have them as a friend. I have done that with a few people constantly posting, someone always bragging or irritating complaints of their kids, and so on.

People post comments to this person, and one guy always seems almost borderline sarcastic. I can't tell whether he is being that or not though. Her posts hardly pop up on my newsfeed anyway, but when they do it's usually something like that.

@ScribbledAdNauseum sometimes that random post just hits us and gives us a rant.

@GardenGerty Completely agree with you. I have had that before then deleted the person. Right now its a girl I went to school with who always and everything about raising kids. She has raised her boyfriends kids for 6 months that doesnt make you the parents of the year.

Apparently some have said they would leave but they always say that and never do. However, it isn't worth posting memes about.

Definitely not, regardless of the circumstance.

I like to avoid Facebook during political seasons. I don't like to see all of my friends' opinions on politics because then I'll start to wonder why I'm friends with a person who believes such things, LOL. No seriously though... political and religious opinions are really things we should mostly keep to ourselves in large groups or on places like Facebook. It's okay to debate between a couple of friends... but not on Facebook, just my opinion.

they're just after attention, they can just leave with out telling other people. I think this paranoia with trump is just too much. who knows hillary or sanders might beat him

Do you think she wrote them or are they some sort of spam she caught while browsing Facebook?

Famous people have been saying that, but we all know they don't mean it. Also, like you mentioned, some probably aren't, but just getting thrown into that group. Alec Baldwin said he'd move out of the U.S. if George W. Bush became President. I would have been fine if he'd exited the country, but he didn't. It's kind of sad people get that into it. That it never occurs to them people are just being dramatic...or maybe I'm being too harsh.

I agree completely especially when celebs get thrown into it but faceBook is such a mess right now, I am almost considering deleting my own account and never turning back . . .

It's worth making a post here, because maybe it will help let other MyLotters get a clue not to do that, but as far as your personal dilemma with your Facebook friends, you can always go to their profile and hit Unfollow. That way, you are still friends and can message each other and whatnot, bt you won't have to see her irritating posts.

I deleted my FB account 3 years ago. Best thing I ever did. So nice and peaceful here without FB.

One of the reasons I rarely use FB is because of the amount of rubbish they talk on there

I don't usually delete friends on Facebook as well, but I often choose to unfollow them. I don't want my Facebook wall to be stuck with many negative posts, and disturbing me from reading the important information from my favorite groups. Just choose to unfollow her, as she may not stop doing what she's currently doing.
