Surgeon General Rethinks Harmfulness of Social Media After Report Receives Thousands of Likes, Retweets, Comments, and Shares
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The United States Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Tuesday issued a new advisory warning of the mental health effects of social media on young people, only to later rethink the advisory after seeing it receive thousands of likes, retweets, comments, and shares online.
“We are in the middle of a national youth mental health crisis, and I am concerned that . . . wait, how many? Oh my . . . that . . . that’s like so many. Wow, I gotta sit down” said Dr. Murthy as he was informed of the incredible volume of responses received by his announcement — the validating rush of serotonin flooding his brainstem, causing him to momentarily pass out.
“I’m sorry, where was I?” said Dr. Murthy when he regained consciousness, “Oh, yeah. . . Social media use may cause and perpetuate body image issues, affect eating behaviors and sleep quality, and lead to social comparison and low self est– OH MY GOD, it just keeps going up! Are you seeing this?! They love me! They really love me!! Maybe it’s not social media. Maybe you losers just need to post better content! I’M NEVER GOING TO DIE!!!”
At the printing of this newsletter, Surgeon General Murthy was seen lying in the fetal position, shaking from withdrawals, mere minutes after the heavy stream of likes, retweets, comments, and shares slowed and eventually stopped.
