A 16 year old boy was arrested after he had flown from Los Angeles, California, to Nashville, Tennessee, on Southwest Airlines Flight 284 and it was discovered that he had plans to hijack a plane in an attempt to commit suicide. He had intended to crash the plane into a Hannah Montana concert in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Its interesting when pop culture celebrities become something that inspires insane rage and hatred in the general public. Here Miley Cyrus is inspiring jihadist behaviour but previously the Olsen twins inspired PETA to aim its unresolved teenaged angst gun at them when they were depicted as trolls, Jessica Simpson has been blamed for weeks for the poor performance of the Dallas Cowboys simply because she was dating Tony Romo, or is dating him still. Who knows? The rumours fluctuate depending on how much people want to beat her into the ground.

Everything about the suicidal kid aside, if you’re Miley Cyrus, DO you start to assess the impact you’re having on culture? I’m just putting that out there. [source]
