Adam Driver Had To Ask Interviewer What 'Emo' Means, And Twitter Is Not Okay

Finally, finally, The Last Jedi is going to be released, featuring our favorite brooding emotional man-boy character, Kylo Ren, as portrayed by professional brooding man-boy, Adam Driver. 

In an interview to promote the film’s release with Rolling Stone, Driver shared some insight on Ren, and his deep needs and emotions. But one thing Driver doesn’t seem to get is why everyone else is perceiving Ren’s mood swings as “emo.” What does emo even mean, exactly?

But he doesn’t know what emo is?

Here’s the exact passage from the conversation:

Um, yeah. Exactly. Kylo Ren feels too much! He has EMOTIONS. No one can believe that Driver somehow doesn’t understand this concept already.

But Twitter is loving Driver’s supposed ignorance:

If Driver doesn’t know what emo is, maybe we should all just let the concept go entirely. He perfected it, then he killed it on the big screen.

Sammi Won't Be Returning To MTV's Jersey Shore Reunion–And Now We Know Why

The Jersey Shore is returning to TV, with everyone on it a little older and a little wiser. But it will probably still be an entertaining TV show:

But announcements about the returning cast had fans baffled. Where was Sammi Sweetheart on the list?

Well, according toUS Weekly, Sammi is living her best life as a person who already got rich off her first reality TV show and was not interested in subjecting herself to the drama again, especially in regards to her ex, Ronnie.

“Everyone was invited to come on the show but Sammi was the only one who didn’t want to. A big reason for that was because she didn’t want to be around Ronnie,” said a source. “She has been enjoying her life off of TV and didn’t want to change that.”

That totally makes sense, and kudos to her, but everyone is still really, really disappointed that the show’s central drama would be missing from the reboot:

Ronnie responded with surprising respect in a statement:

“I made a decision and she made a decision, there’s nothing I can really say about that,” he told TooFab. “It’s something she chose to do and it’s her choice. So you know, as someone who was around her forever, you gotta respect that. We all respect that and we just wish her the best. If she’s happy and she’s in an amazing place, God bless her, and we all really do just wish her the best and nothing but good things for her.”

Okay. Very mature. But…but:

Who will tell Ronnie to stop?!

As Twitter Becomes Obsessed With Meghan Markle's 'Suitability,' J.K. Rowling Shuts It All Down

As the news of Prince Harry’s engagement to actress and entrepreneur Meghan Markle has spread, so have discussions about Markle’s “suitability” as a partner for Harry.

While most agree the entire conversation is distasteful and only Harry can decide who is or is not suitable for him, that didn’t stop conservative British newspaper The Spectator from weighing in on Twitter.

For those not in-the-know, “CofE” is short for the Church of England and, according to tradition, the reigning monarch of England is also the head of the Church. In this case, of course, that would be Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

But the notion that Markle is somehow “unsuitable” because she has been divorced struck people as a bit off, especially considering the history of the Church of England itself.

I mean…

History buffs weren’t the only ones with questions…

Even J.K. Rowling got in on the discussion, shuttingThe Spectator‘s assertion down with a single hashtag:

And Twitter was so here for it…

We wish Meghan and Harry all the best in their union!

Lorde And Harry Styles Said 'Hello' At Award Show–And People Are Absolutely Losing It

On Monday night, both Harry Styles and Lorde were up for Best International Artist at the 2017 Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards. Styles took the crown, but he was such a class act about it, and Twitter can’t get enough.

On his way to receive his statue, Styles made a detour to Lorde’s seat and gave her a couple cheek kisses, and yes, we’re freaking out:

Are they friends? Is he just being nice? Did he want to recognize how amazing she is? No one knows for certain, but they’re alternately dying and being brought back to life by this iconic moment:

Now, imagine how Lorde feels about getting kissed by Harry Styles.

News Reporter Completely Loses It Over Black Friday Live On TV–And We Feel For Him

Joshua Short has waited his entire journalistic career to cover a Black Friday live on the air. Don’t judge — we all have different goals. He finally got his chance this year, but the broadcast didn’t exactly go as planned. Josh and his news station expected long lines and the usual chaos that accompany Black Friday, but it appears 2017 was the year that residents of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs got it together.

There was no Black Friday crowd for Josh to report on.

Josh, who obviously isn’t a fan of “fake news,” decided to give one seriously honest report. The show’s anchor, Alex Wilcox, did his introduction and finally asked, “Josh, how are things going?”

Josh let him know exactlyhow things were going in this now-viral rant:

Alex caught that proverbial pass expertly with a smile and a chuckle. He then commented to Josh that he may be on the wrong side of the mall and there may be people at another entrance.

Check out the sweet screen-blur from Josh making his emotional exit:

Alex awkwardly ended the segment by stammering “Uh, Josh is gone, we lost Josh.” Always ready with a sense of humor, Joshua Short has embraced his moment of too-much-honesty and talked about it on social media.

He even posted the video with a bit of commentary:

And just like that, Josh won the hearts and minds of the world:

It didn’t take long before other reporters declared themselves #TeamJosh:

Someone should start a petition for Josh to report all the news from now on.

This Black Guy Posted A 'Guess Who's Coming Dinner Service' On Craigslist And It's Hilarious

The holidays are great and I absolutely love this time of year, but even I am sick and tired of people who ask the same old boring family questions.

What are you doing with your life? Are you seeing anyone? How’s your job going? Et cetera, et cetera. It’s even worse when you’ve got an annoyingly traditional family that’s borderline backwards.

Well if you wished there was a way to get back at them and mess with them real good this Holiday season, then you may want to take up Wesley Peterson on his “Guess who’s coming to dinner” family service.

People were cracking up at Peterson’s post.

Others think he’s worth way more than a holiday hire.

But the real question is: did anyone take Peterson up on his offer?

Here’s hoping someone did. Hell, I’m married and not a white woman from a borderline racist family and I want to take him up on his offer.

Tomi Lahren Photoshops A Picture Of Colin Kaepernick, And Twitter Isn't Having Any Of It

Tomi Lahren is at it again. On Thursday, the lightweight political commentator, Fox news contributor, and staunch Trump supporter tweeted a doctored photo of Colin Kaepernick. In the image, Kaepernick appears to be kneeling in a WWII landing craft, watching U.S. soldiers storm the beach at Normandy on D-Day. 

Lahren captioned the photo “Citizen of the Year” and quipped, “Food for thought”: 

Lahren may have been hoping to ruffle some feathers on Thanksgiving, but she missed the mark. By depicting Kaepernick kneeling before a military battle to criticize his protests, she overlooked the fact that protesting racial injustice in the U.S. is an act of patriotism. Kaepernick fans took a quick break from arguing with family over dry turkey and room temperature side dishes to have a little fun with Lahren’s ignorance. 

Many Twitter users called out Lahren’s hypocrisy: 

Some tried to explain how military families’ sacrifices gave us free speech:

Others defended Kaepernick’s right to protest… again:

But several people got to the heart of it all with their own “food for though” photos:

And someone illustrated what we were all thinking:

Sit ALL the way down, Ms. Lahren.

Wendy's Just Destroyed McDonald's After Their Huge Black Friday Tweet Fail

It’s always a little embarrassing when huge social media accounts don’t proofread their posts, like this copy and paste gaffe from Scott Disick…

For billion dollar corporations the stakes are much higher. Every notable event, or trending holiday, is a chance to promote your product. Naturally, McDonald’s was all set to tweet out a Black Friday post.

Whoever’s handling their social media was on top of scheduling the tweets, however, they had a bit of a snafu when it came to posting the actual tweet itself.

That’s right: McDonald’s posted this embarrassing mistake, but the burger chain seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. Look at this little gem they followed up with:

It wasn’t enough to stop the internet roast machine from getting on McDonald’s case, however.

People guessed what was going through the Mickey D’s social media team’s heads after the accidental post.

While others pointed out that the brand’s exposure as a result of the mix-up might ultimately benefit them.

Then the worst possible thing happened to McDonald’s. Social media savage, Wendy’s, of course, responded to the glaring mistake.

And they didn’t hold back.

Reporter Shares Excerpt From Trump's Speech To The Navy–And Everyone's Perplexed

There may be literally nothing more confusing in this country than President Trump.

How do you even mix up the biggest loss of USA life in 100 years with a convenience store?

And in his speech to the US Navy, MSNBC reporter Kyle Griffin noticed that there was not one coherent thought to be found in Trump’s word salad.

INVISIBLE PLANES, Y’ALL.  INVISIBLE PLANES.  SO GOOD YOU CANT SEE THEM.

“I said, ‘That helps.   That’s a good thing.'”

Yes, this is all fun and games, but Trump is playing with lives here.  The US armed forces depend upon a Commander-in-chief to make informed decisions about their equipment as well as their plan of approach; and unless Trump is living in the DC Universe with Wonder Woman, there’s a good chance that plane is simply not invisible.
