Get a mohawk, they said. Put a photo of your mohawk on a stock photography site, they said. You’ll look so cool, they said. Yeah, maybe not. Sacramento County officials recently undertook a public information campaign to clue people in on the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases. The campaign used the tag line “Some trends come back into style. Syphilis shouldn’t be one of them,” along with the photo of a young man with a wild Mohawk haircut. Which is all fine...unless it’s your photo they’re using as the new face of STDs in the Golden State. As the Sacramento Bee reports, social media wags noticed the ads and immediately began to mock the poor guy in the photo. Because and STD might be temporary, but meanness on the Internet is forever.
