The Internet’s Ridiculous Response to VH1’s ‘Wicked Single’ Supertrailer
VH1’s ‘supertrailer’ for new reality series Wicked Single, which premieres on St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday, March 17.
We thought Southie Rules was the bottom of the Boston reality show TV pit, and when A&E started to air back-to-back Saturday episodes, we sighed in relief. “Whew. OK, it’s over. It’s dead. We survived.” But it turns out we were wrong. So, so wrong.
Earlier this week, VH1’s new show Wicked Single released its “supertrailer” (shown above). The show has provoked such anger from viewers—especially yesterday during the Bruins game—that people on social media became downright violent with their words. If you thought the viewer reactions to Southie Rules were bad, check out how people on Twitter responded to Wicked Single…
There was the ubiquitous “whoever did this should be shot” + hashtag combo:
Whoever came up with “wicked single” should be shot… #embarrassing

Whoever made Wicked Single should be killed. #ashamed

The utilitarian approach:
New US torture tactic: Wicked Single on a continuous loop, sandwiched in between Pitbull Bud Light commercials.

The “punchy” approach:
Wicked Single…..they’re obviously not actually from Boston. Also, if I ever see that being filmed, I’m punching all of them. — Colleen K (@ColleenSK) March 6, 2013
You know the jerk off who’s yanking his shirt open in the trailer for ‘Wicked Single’? I wish he was taking a spin kick in the gut. — Cameron Frye (@CameronFrye) March 6, 2013
I wish that girl from Wicked Single fell wicked hahd into the grill of that cab. — John Downey (@JohnnyBoston29) March 6, 2013
The Twitter mob isn’t just mad at VH1 and the Wicked Single cast. They’re issuing warnings to everybody:
If you watch the show “wicked single” ill fucking kill you.

Finally, some viewers think Wicked Single will be so painful that they’ll just put themselves out of their misery.

Wicked Single hasn’t even aired yet and I already want to take a wicked single barrel shotgun to my head.

This is the first Im hearing about this Wicked Single show, and I wish I never had. I literally want to slit my own throat.

That Wicked Single commercial makes me want to repeatedly hit myself in the genitals with a meat tenderizer.

Please, VH1, take some responsibility! There are innocent people’s lives at stake here—and that last one sounds really painful!
