So you've been publicly shamed
Ronson, Jon, 1967-2015
Articles
In 2012, Jon Ronson's online identity was stolen. Jon publicly confronted the imposters, a trio of academics who had created a Jon Ronson Twitter bot obsessed by unlikely food combinations and weird sex. At first, Jon was delighted to find strangers all over the world uniting to support him in his outrage. The wrongdoers were quickly shamed into stopping. But then things got out of hand. This encounter prompted Jon to explore the phenomenon of public shaming and what he discovered astonished him. Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, this is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws - and our very scary part in it.
