Both the culprit & the photographer should have to pay the fee to the artist, to make a new sculpture & also pay for a more secure fence. What an idiot she is, no matter size or gender, stupid is stupid.

I think community service is a more appropriate method of payment. Let her go pick up trash on the beach in front of the hotel all weekend for the next 6 months.. Then she gets to play in the sand like she wanted.

The vast majority of that artists work gets washed away on a daily basis, hard to put any price on that. Aside from that, it’s the hotels loss, not his. I think making her pay for a secure fence is overkill, especially for art made of sand.

In Ocean City, Maryland there used to be a guy that would make unbelievably intricate sand sculptures depicting bible scenes every day. He would spend the entire day building them, whole villages with little camels, etc. then high tide would come and wash it away and he’d be back out there next day. It’s almost a Zen piece of art, in that it represents one perfect moment that won’t last. Pretty amazing to me. I wish I could be that much in the moment.

The reach of the media has changed tremendously compared to 30-40 years ago, before the widespread use of the internet. Back then this would never have even been a story anywhere. I think they'll catch them soon. Not sure what the punishment should be though. Maybe several hundred hours of community service. I don't think jail time is warranted though.

Again, these acts happened just as much before social media. Theyíre just more public now. I think you're conflating things like typical acts of vandalism such as the sand sculpture with social media stunts such as licking ice cream.
Yes, they've always been there. The easy access and availability of cell phones and Internet access has just allowed more of them to crawl out of the woodwork and from under their rocks. Maybe for better, definitely for worse.

Or, we could simply say she's a jerk and be done with it, because that's what's important and relevant here. Why is it that whenever someone makes the news, their looks come into it, as if it makes the whole thing worse if they're overweight or unattractive or what-have-you? Or is it just that we want to deflect from the real issue, which is that they're a jerk, because it's easier to make fun of their looks instead?

No, really. I want answers to those questions. I'll wait until you come up with something thoughtful and that makes sense.




Get out your GPS, because the point is waaaaaaaay over there. No, it's because people point out they're female as if that's the reason they're doing it, or as if to make a point that women are bad.




It's okay-- to all women, most American men look like that. And then they go on to talk about our weight and we laugh and laugh.


Again, anyone bashing her weight: I hope you're skinny and just got out of the gym.
I have no problem bashing her weight and. I am overweight myself. It is what it is. I donít get butt hurt if someone says Iím overweight because I am. I do work out a lot but have a horrible diet, but thatís on me.
The only way I can minimize it is because my chest, shoulders and back are bigger than my belly

It appears to be mostly female posters calling her a fat slob. To American men, most of you look like that.
LOL. That chick weighs twice what I do. FWIW, there are plenty of American men that are just as unappealing, to us women.

She is not a normal size nor healthy size for a teenager.

I'm surprised this beached whale was able to climb over that railing ! (there, I said it ! )

I'd like to see this happen. Outdoor community service during the winter is not fun.
