Have you ever been upset at a bookstore for reducing the price of a book? On Monday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson caught the up guys on the latest politically correct outrage.

Doc wondered when we became so sensitive as a society. In one story of outrage, a woman got upset over a sale price sticker on a book and tweeted a photo of it, prompting a Twitter backlash against the bookstore. The book, “Madeleine McCann: Ten Years On,” is about the mysterious kidnapping case where 3-year-old Madeleine disappeared from her bedroom a decade ago. A Twitter user got upset at the bookstore because a sticker reading “When it’s gone, it’s gone!” was placed on it.

Doc pointed out that the bookstore used this particular sticker for books on sale and wasn’t intentionally putting it on that particular book.

“So not only did someone see this at the store, the people, and get powerfully upset … they took time to send a picture out,” Doc explained. "I think people are looking for victimization.”

TheBlaze's Brad Staggs pointed out that people have a much “bigger stage” to share supposed victimization now that the internet allows people to speak freely to a much wider audience.

In another incident, a man was charged on two counts after he allegedly drove through a flock of seagulls on the road on purpose. Police said they were stopped by a man and a crying woman who witnessed the incident and were “extremely upset,” a local CBS news station reported.
