William Shatner ‘horrified’ by racist, sexist posts on Reddit

No, William Shatner isn’t writing off the entire Reddit community, but he’s also not jumping at the chance to take part in one of the site’s famous AMA, or “Ask Me Anything,” sessions. As Twitchy reported, Shatner dropped in on the Redditors unannounced last week to get a feel for the place and found it pretty confusing.

I’m not saying the entire site is bad. I’ve had some wonderful reads of issues and arguments but then in middle some idiot posts garbage…

And the entire thread then gets off track. It seems like it could be a great place to condense knowledge and intellect along with fun.

He does know he’s describing the entire Internet, right? Reddit’s not up to Shatner’s standards just yet, so the site will have to settle for those not so easily put off by the racism and sexism. Like this guy, for example.
