Cry Baby of the Week: Kevin Curtis


The Incident:  Phone company assigned teen’s phone number to someone else

The appropriate response:  Complain and wait for it to be rectified

The actual response:  He got the Waikato Times to do a story on it 

Raymond’s father Kevin Curtis called 2degrees to get reconnected and but was told it could take up to five days to ”investigate” the issue.

”How can they so easily disconect, but they can’t reconnect?”, asked Mr Curtis.

Mr Curtis said Raymond had suffered some ”serious” bullying earlier this year, and also had a broken foot.

”If he hadn’t had his phone, things could have turned nasty very quickly.”

He said the bullying could rear up again, and it was important that they kept in touch.

Fuck me, what a dense bastard.  Do you think having your son  in the paper crying crocodile tears over his phone not working for a few days is going to make him a demi-God at school?

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
