Are we cruel? This poor woman, who has now been identified as Cathy Cruz Marerro, was innocently texting as she was walking in the mall and then BAM! She falls in the fountain. But, she quickly gets up and walks away. The security staff who saw this were laughing and even playing it back from different angles.
Why do we think things like this are funny?
First of all, the fountain lady Cathy Cruz Marerro was okay. It would be different to laugh if she was seriously injured.
Second, hey, we’re a nation that watches the show “Wipeout.” The sole point of which is to watch people eat it. Viewers don’t really want to watch someone make it quickly through the obstacle course; they want to watch them fall, bounce, and make a big splash.
And finally, we laugh because we’re so glad that it wasn’t us.
Do you think the video is funny or do you think that the woman falls in fountain video is mean?
