😔😔😔 This kind of madness is what everyone should be more focused on and heated about. Focus your attention on our crumbling world and let this entertainment program be JUST that. Refocus your energies. Be mad about acts of violence instead of acts of puns in mini challenges. https://t.co/0N39j49RCJ— Detox (@TheOnlyDetox) November 8, 2018
