The infamous redneck road rage video ended up with Tampa Bay police arresting Jeffrey White, the man who was shown flipping off the woman named Tracy Lynn Sloan who captured the video from inside her vehicle. Some people have criticized her for taking the video and posting it on YouTube, so she has responded by defending her actions.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, this is the description that was originally posted with the redneck road rage video:
“This happened to me on SR 41 in Tampa on Monday March 24th. This pathetic excuse for a human being tailgated me for about three minutes. After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were.”
Ever since we ran the original story the number of views for the redneck road rage video has surpassed the 8.2 million mark and the description was updated multiple times. Sloan has also apparently been receiving a lot of hate mail to the extent that she disabled the tenth circle of hell called YouTube comments. Even then people kept messaging her personal attacks so she had to disable those, as well. She has a message for those attacking her:
“To those internet trolls who have nothing better to do with their day than go all over the interwebs and spread hate… do me a favor? Look up some Bob Marley music on YouTube, because you could use a little enlightenment and a better mood.”
Many of her critics say she should have been watching the road instead of filming the road rage being put on display. But she claims she did not even know that the other man flipped her off until she watched the video later on because she says her eyes were focused on watching the road.
At the same time, Sloan admits she now feels guilty for laughing when she watched Jeffrey White lose control of his pickup truck and slam into a post:
“Honestly, looking back, I feel kind of bad for laughing. But at the same time, it’s kind of funny. None of us are good drivers. We all have our problems. Maybe this is his opportunity for growth. Maybe he can use this as a learning tool and not go off the rails next time.”
Do you think Tracy Lynn Sloan should have posted the redneck road rage video to YouTube?
