After killing 100 in Haiti, Category 4 Hurricane Matthew bore down on Florida’s east coast Thursday, with winds reaching 140 mph. Gov. Rick Scott ordered some 1.5 million people in the state to flee the dangerous storm: “You need to leave. Evacuate, evacuate, evacuate,” he said.
But one man didn’t listen. His name? Vanilla Ice.
Brave, or just incredibly stupid? I’m gonna go with… lazy. Anyway, Florida Democrats were quick to note that Mr. Ice was setting a bad example.
Plenty of other Twitter followers exhorted the one-hit wonder to drive west, out of Matthew’s path, but one person said it better than most.
Seriously, bro. Just leave. No tweet is worth your pseudo-celebrity life.
Right now things are pretty calm, but you know what that means, the calm before the storm. The entire Florida Georgia and Carolina Coast
