An emotional detonator is a word or multiple words, image or multiple images, video, idea, or perception that causes an explosive and often irrational, emotionally based reaction that renders logic and sound judgment abilities immediately inert.
The media is notorious for using inflammatory headlines, doctored videos, selective and biased reporting as emotional detonators to illicit emotional responses from the ill-informed public.
