Between poor connections and cut microphones, chaotic videoconferences were prevalent during the epidemic, but with insults and exclusions, the zoom meeting of an English local authority went viral.
The local council of Handforth, a small town of 6,000 in northwest England, met on December 10 and became a fistfight.
Millions of people have already watched the conference broadcast on the Internet, and the British are particularly intrigued by a prominent figure in the conference: Jackie Weaver, a clerk who came to “help” elected officials.
The reason? Her response when Chairman Brian Tolver introduced himself as a “clerk” was: “The president declared himself a clerk and informed everyone,” she said at the time. “There’s no way to stop her from declaring herself a clerk. Call me Britney Spears from now on.”
Ms Weaver did not stop there, the boycott was over, and after the Zoom meeting refused to accept its legitimacy, she exclaimed, “You have no authority here, Jackie Weaver.”
The clerk quickly became the darling of British Twitter, with netizens launching various memes, sometimes linked under the hashtag #JusticeForJackie.
For example, you can see Jackie Weaver being equated with “Disaster Girl”, the little girl who looks happy in front of that burning house or the gulf – Lord of the Rings magician “You must not pass!” “You have no authority here, Jackie Weaver”.
Invited Friday BBCJackie Weaver says he has only received “positive support” since the video went viral.
She also dampened the hopes of Internet users by emphasizing that “99.9% of board meetings do not take place, they are much less exciting.”
