I’m not going to lie, this whole story with this little wanker Corey Worthington has gotten TOTALLY out of hand!
For those who have been hiding from the world wide media, the story here is that this 16 year old kid threw a party at his house while his parents were away on holidays. He organised it through popular social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook and via text messages and word of mouth, which resulted in 500 + teenagers getting to his place, with a whole bunch of booze and drinking themselves stupid.
Naturally the police were called, with several squads, sniffer dogs and a police helicopter required to bring the party to a close. Police cars, and surround property were damaged, and the police are charging the Worthington family $20,000 to compensate.
Well first of all the media attacks his parents, which I feel is completely unfair. They were on a holiday in which their son backed out of as he “had to work”. They then organised for him to stay at a friends place for the weekend, and obviously he changed those plans without their consent or knowledge.
But the real issue here, is this little brat doesn’t think he has done anything wrong. He is actually proud of his achievement and really doesn’t give a shit about what he’s done.
Now the media is adding fuel to the fire, with every TV station getting interviews with this kid, thrwoing it in our faces. Facebook has developed a Corey Worthington Trust Fund with donations to pay for the $20,000 bill this kid a got himself. Still he hasn’t even been home to his parents since they returned.
Soon we are going to see this kid with his own show on TV, most likely some MTV junk like Punk’D. This is really going to send a strong message to the youth, “Kid’s don’t try this at home….. because you will get 15 minutes of fame and a reality TV show out of it” really makes me not want to throw an awesome party!
I just can’t get over the attitude this kid displays. When asked by Channel 9 if he had any tips for others throwing a party his response was “Yep, get me to throw it for you”. He’s been getting job offers from events companies, nightclubs, you name it, this stunt could turn out to be very lucrative. One promoter has said
“We’re prepared to put him in as a party promoter — we’d organise an underage party and have him as the host.
“A promoter who can organise a party for 500 people can make anywhere from $2000 to $10,000.
“If he can pull 500 to the street, he could easily fill up a club.”
I just wish the media would let it go, and stop sending the message that what this kid did it all ok!
