So, the article only mentions two people who Tweeted at her, is that really enough to count as outrage these days?

When it makes mainstream media news then yes. This isnt the first instances - at all.

It is bad thing considering where it was always going to go. It's inherently authoritarian. Political correctness has nothing to do with being right or doing the right thing. It's just a tool with a positive PR label that's being used to control culture. This sort of thing is not an outlier type of situation, it's the norm. This is no different than toxic masculinity or "people of color" can't be racist.

PC is just about being polite.  

Any horror stories you have about PC, are just extremes, they aren't inherent to PC.    

Yeah, enormous social pressure to be "polite". No thanks.

No, it's not. Being polite is just being polite. Being PC is following the dogma of progressivism.

Look at the guy who made it versus her response, it's like a ratio of 10:1 in likes, so he is clearly in the minority when talking about it appropriating his culture.

PC is the baby of progressivism. It has jack shit to do with being polite.

All these progressive beliefs are in reality a minority, the problem is they're by far the loudest and create a toxic envrionment for anyone that doesn't bow down to them.

Sure, but I'm not for social "lynchings" of genuinely impolite people either.

You are just so used to the status quo that you pay attention more to things that deviate from it, that is why.

How dare society tell us there's a respectful to act?

There's always social pressure to be polite.  You expect people to be nice to you regardless of what you do?  Call people "fat" and they should smile and say "thank you, sir."  If that's not what you expect, welcome to PC.

Give me some examples of what you think are PC.

Not really, because the current status quo is a progressive authoritarian empire. So if what you said was true I'd pay more attention to instances of non progressive abuses, which exist, but unfortunately the real existential crisis atm is progressive oppression.
