The Art of Deflection

If you've made a boo-boo, the right thing to do is wo/man up and own up to your mistake or transgression. Take full responsibility of your actions and make honest effort to be a better person. 

But then certain folks don't do the right thing and here's where deflection comes in. Deflection is the delicate art form employed by human garbage to attempt to divert attention away from a serious allegation by making an admission that may or may not be relevant but scores 150 out of 100 in the drama category. 

EXAMPLE

Allegation: You're stolen from an orphan.

Deflection: I'm a unicorn. 

Don't do it. The world deserves better. 

– Karim Waheed, appalled
