Remember that story about how emo-kids were being mistaken for piñatas and beaten half to death in the streets of Mexico? And how it was all a part of a growing anti-emo movement dead set on eradicating the crying scourge? Well, maybe it’s not all it was cracked up to be. MTV sent their own Woodstein south of the border to investigate. They spoke with Kristoff, the TV host blamed with inciting the violence, who said “The anti-emo movement doesn’t exist. The anti-emo movement is something that came out of the Internet, and I don’t know where it continues. Here in Mexico, it doesn’t continue.”
But the kids on the front lines beg to differ.
