In my Facebook newsfeed today, the first article that showed up had the headline
“1D’s Louis Posts First Picture Of Son… And Tells Us His Name!”
Now, I couldn’t give two shits about Louis’ new son or what his name is, but what was commented underneath did grab my attention. Someone had written “#anticlickbait – his name is Freddie.” Needless to say, this comment had hundreds of likes, and a string of replies to the tune of “thanks – sick of this clickbait crap!” and and “the world needs more people like you! Shame on you [publisher’s name] for lowering yourself to clickbait level.”
Now, hold up.
