Divala was vandalized.

As you know, I once speculated that what motivates the common vandal is his or her belief that the thing he or she is wrecking is to avenge him or herself for the perceived slight of the object's existence. Behind every nihilistic jerk who gets his rocks off breaking stuff is a whiny little puke who thinks that other people can only enjoy themselves if they know they're depriving a narcissistic puss-bag of something and revel in said deprivation. The reason that I mention this is that human beings can also be vandalized. Lynn accidentally proved that when Divala showed up.

To start things off, we have to remember that Mike had been raised to think of himself as this great big special snowflake who's supposed to win all the time. It never occurred to him that he was simply supposed to do a little puff piece on an up-and-comer to pay his dues like an ordinary mortal and he brainlessly misinterpreted what happened to him as an attempt to deprive him of what he wasn't actually due. Instead of realizing that he'd overstepped ridiculously, he made a whiny comment about how the cat he let out of the bag had claws in order to justify his essentially being one of the punks on 4chan spewing venom at someone who irritated him by being different without his approval. While it's true that maybe she was a bit of a fraud, it wasn't his place to subject her to a witch hunt and ruin her life just because he felt small and stupid. The only consolation we have is that he didn't commit the ultimate act of vandalism and go on a shooting spree.
