Expository Writing #2

“Did you know she was held back a grade?” Gossiping may be fun, but it can be harmful.
Something as simple as talking to a friend about someone else could end up around the whole school. For instance, in the movie Mean Girls, they made a ‘Burn Book’, a book filled with hurtful gossip about everyone in the school. One day someone got the book and made copies of all the pages and filled the school with them. The girls who made the book were then hated by everyone. This shows how fast something can spread.
Also gossiping can turn into bad rumors. For example, I heard someone I thought was my friend spreading a false rumor about me. I felt like I had no true friends, I just wanted to fall in a hole and die. Just because you think someone can’t hear it, doesn’t mean you should say it, especially when you don’t know if it’s true.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. If you don’t something being said about you, don’t say it about someone else. Therefore just don’t gossip, it can turn into a big rumor, and/or hurt someone.

  1. I love how you referenced Mean Girls the movie because they were really mean with the burn book. It was a great movie but some of the things that they did were awful.
