According to an Oct. 15 post from Bloody Elbow, former UFC star and current World Series of Fighting contender Jon Fitch has called for fight fans to cancel their Facebook accounts because he feels Facebook's owner, Mark Zuckerberg, is a child hater.
"I want to give love to AKA for everything they've given me over the years, and I want to give a shout out to Pacific Health Club for the opportunity they have provided to me. I'm looking forward to spending the next year or more with them, helping to build their team," Fitch said. "Other than that I have Oak Grove Technologies, who are one of my main sponsors. They have been awesome to me for a number of years.
"You can follow me on Twitter @Jonfitchdotnet. I don't have a Facebook, and the last thing I'll say is everyone else should cancel their Facebook, because it's criminally spying on us and it's helping the government spy on us. The owner of that organization is a horrible person who is promoting fracking and putting a lot of money into poisoning our country. Basically, in my opinion, he hates children. Anyone who supports fracking is a child hater. I just want to put that out there. That's my little political outburst."
So apparently Fitch is anti-fracking and believes this process is hurting the Earth's core, and that anyone who supports fracking hates children. But what exactly is fracking?
Hydraulic fracturing, is the process of extracting natural gas from shale rock layers deep within the earth. Fracking makes it possible to produce natural gas extraction in shale plays that were once unreachable with conventional technologies.
Here's the thing: Fitch is entitled to his opinion but nobody knows for sure if fracking actually causes harm to the earth.
Fracking is still very new and it will be several years before we know for sure if it actually is harming the planet.
