Everyone Is Looking For This Man Who Had A Complete Meltdown Over People Speaking Spanish

Everyone Is Looking For This Man Who Had A Complete Meltdown Over People Speaking Spanish

With Donald Trump in office, discrimination and violence is on the rise. In fact, a lot of it is government-funded. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement office have hugely increased arrests since he took office, entering schools, homeless shelters, domestic violence court cases, hospitals. This viral video horrifying people shows what happens when a huge Trump supporter thinks he can turn the power ICE has to destroy people’s lives to his own petty uses.

Activist Shaun King shared a video taken at a Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan of a man having a total meltdown because two workers were speaking to one another in Spanish. 

He escalates into saying they’re probably undocumented and supported via his tax dollars by welfare. Yes, they’re clearly employed, but this racist won’t be defeated by logic. 

He then threatens to call ICE on them, again, for the “crime” of speaking a second language. He tops it all off by calling one of the women fat.

The video is horrifying for so many reasons, it’s hard to choose just one.

But it didn’t take long for the dude to be discovered. King alleges that the man is an attorney named Aaron Schlossberg, and his day just took a turn.

RIP your mentions.

This sort of viral fame isn’t great for business, either.

A lot of people were reminded of the recent video of a white woman who called the police on a group of black people barbecuing food in Oakland.

Some people said they were surprised that someone who lives in Manhattan could be so shocked and horrified by someone speaking Spanish, but racism is everywhere:

The man in question has possibly ripped the phone cord out of the wall by now, since he may have an anger-management problem. Yet, he’s still safer than all of the men, women, and children in the hands of ICE. And that’s Trump’s America.

“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

It’s been three years since the dress that stumped the internet. 

When the mother of a bride sent her daughter this photo, causing a disagreement over its color that would spread so widely, its hashtag would amass over 10 million mentions within the post’s first week.

This debate garnered viral attention after a friend of the bride’s posted the image on Tumblr and no one on the internet could agree on what they saw. 

Earlier today, a new kind of controversy sparked across Twitter when people were asked to pick which of these words they hear in this clip:

It’s basically the audio equivalent of the dress debacle all over again.

Most of us can only hear one of the words (names?)

#TeamLaurel all the way.

Others, after searching long and hard, are still torn between the options.

Admittedly, some are more dedicated to this debate than others:

As it turns out,

Apparently, you can hear “yanny” at a low volume with little to no bass and “laurel” when the volume and bass are high.

It’s tripping everyone out and lowkey making us question everything.

Oh, internet, where will we go from here.

Everyone Wants This Guy As Their Teacher After Seeing His Weekend Assignment

Remember being a kid and having insane amounts of homework every weekend that you basically ignored until Sunday night, when you would completely meltdown? It’s called the learning process, and it’s great.

Just kidding! Homework is horrible, and I barely ever retained anything from it, personally. Apparently some teachers are pretty sick of the system, too. Journalist Jane Martin shared a letter sent home with her kid from All Saints’ School in London. In it, a teacher named Mr. Tucker gives very specific instructions for how to prepare for the SATs that she absolutely loved:

It was so important he included a checklist:

They’re well-balanced requirements that include both activity and sitting on the couch:

Candy and friendship:

General chillaxing:

And it has some flexibility, if you want to take an hour break to study:

Mr. Tucker signed off by saying it’s his job to worry about their upcoming test, and theirs to feel good. Wow. 

Mr. Tucker’s approach is in the minority:

And some people are pretty miffed that he would dare to try and make school a more positive experience for this generation:

But actually Mr. Tucker is not the only teacher who thinks stress doesn’t help when it comes to learning. Similar letters have been handed out at other schools:

It’s incredibly refreshing to see schools trying to prioritize letting kids be kids—as long as Mr. Tucker is okay.

He’s fine! Probably.

Google Searches That Show Racism Embedded In the Algorithm

Racism existed before search engines, but Google has consistently not worked to prevent it.

Let’s look at some times Google’s algorithms could have done better.

1. The now classic example: the difference between searching for “three black teenagers” and “three white teenagers”

2. That time Google insisted that white people do not steal cars.

3. This Instagram user’s child began to Google “Why are asteroids…” when Google decided to take over and ask “Why are asians bad drivers?” 

4. And it’s not the first time Google has reinforced racial stereotypes through their suggested text. 

5. Here are some claims Google makes about Jewish people.

6. And here’s a stereotype the search engine feels is worth perpetuating.

Now, let’s dig a little deeper into the history of racist Google and the search engine’s responses to complaints. Remember the example we used in #1?

In 2016, 18 year old Kabir Alli Googled a simple phrase: “three black teenagers.” What appeared went viral: mugshots of black teenagers. When he googled “three white teenagers” the result was completely different: happy groups of white teenagers laughing and hanging out.

The outpouring of anger led to an apology from Google but also a statement that there was little they could do regarding the algorithm. Since this occurrence, people have tried to get Google to take for responsibility for their algorithm and recognize that the search engine is not neutral.

In her book, Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, published this year by NYU Press, Safiya Umoja Noble explores how Google does not do enough to combat racism in the search engine and actually reinforces racial stereotypes.  Noble, an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California teaches classes on the intersection of race, class, and the internet. 

At Google in 2017, 91% of employees were white or asian. Additionally, only 31% of their workforce identified as women. When it comes to the tech portions of the corporation it gets even worse, with only 20% women and 80% men employees

Noble argues that algorithms are not neutral: they are created by people and filled with bias. Based on her extensive research, Noble believes that Google must take responsibility for the racism of the search engine. Algorithms are composed in computer code, and like all languages, this language reflects the culture it is created in. 

Noble found that Googling “black girls” quickly leads to porn. It also doesn’t take long when Googling “asian girls” to find sexualized women, wearing little clothing. When Googling “successful woman,” she most often found images of white women. 

When these instances emerge, Google always blames them on their “neutral” algorithm and does small fixes to those specific searches to change them. Noble argues that Google needs to take responsibility and have a larger reckoning, completely reworking algorithms.

Instead of opening up portals of information and increased understanding across difference, Google is reinforcing old stereotypes and giving them new life. To describe this, Noble coined a term “technological redlining” echoing racist housing practices of the second half of the 20th century. Today, technological companies are making invisible the way their programs and algorithms make decisions, and are effectively hiding the biases.  

As Safiya Umoja Noble recognizes, there are so many ways Google and other search engines could do better. 

First, tech companies need to recognize that algorithms are not inherently neutral. There is no easy fix for widespread biases, but  a more diverse workforce could begin to help these issues. 

Google is just the beginning, Noble hopes other tech companies like Yelp will learn similar lessons.

How This Guy Scammed UPS Shouldn't Have Been This Easy, But It Was

Sometimes criminal plans are so stupid, that they just work because someone is bold enough to try it.

Like that guy who casually stole $ 1.6 million in gold from the back of an armored truck in NYC and managed to get it back home, cut it up, launder it, and make it to his home country of Ecuador.

Sure, he was ultimately caught, but now the dude has a book deal and is doing interviews about his escape, so it’s a win-win for the opportunistic criminal. And all it took for him was to hoist a bucket out of the back of an armored truck when no one was looking. Seems like an obvious tactic most people wouldn’t attempt, on account of the guards being armed and all – the whole thing just seems too simple to work, but it did. 

It’s that same criminal simplicity that temporarily worked for this Chicago man who was seemingly able to, on paper, make his home address Atlanta’s UPS Headquarters. Which not only netted him a lot of mail, but some cash to boot.

Dushaun Henderson-Spruce allegedly didn’t need to do much to convince everyone that the Atlanta, Georgia UPS headquarters business address was his home – all he needed to do was grab a USPS change of address form and fill it out.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Spruce even messed up while filling out the form: “Henderson-Spruce did not identify himself on the one-page form. At first, the initials ‘HS’ were written on the signature line, but the initials were then scratched out and replaced with ‘UPS,’ according to the charges,” 

After the shoddily change of address form was submitted, it didn’t take long for all of UPS’ corporate mail to be forwarded to Hendeson-Spruce’s apartment in the North Side of Chicago. He was receiving tons and tons of mail every single day.

Sometimes it was handed directly to him, other days it was placed in a ginormous UPS tub right outside of his door because all of the correspondence wouldn’t fit in his mailbox. And it wasn’t just bills and coupons Henderson-Spruce was receiving: it was paychecks and credit cards.

Roughly 10 checks made out to UPS worth a collective $ 58,000 were deposited into Henderson’s bank account, and the affidavit doesn’t indicate whether or not he used the corporate American Express credit cards that were sent to his home.

Henderson had accumulated some 3,000+ pieces of mail intended for the UPS corporate office in Atlanta, which also included personal employee data, before UPS’ security team started to get suspicious. Postal Inspectors eventually paid Henderson a visit at his apartment, where they managed to have a little chat.

Spruce told them that he worked at a company-facility part-time back in 2012. When The Tribune interviewed Henderson-Spruce, he intimated that all of the mail was forwarded to his house as a result of some kind of mix-up, but he didn’t explain the situation any further.

He was charged with misdemeanor bank fraud and the possession of a stolen check. But now he is facing a federal offenses for mail theft and fraud, which carry maximum sentences of 5 and 20 years respectively.

Henderson’s story is prompting a lot of people to ask a very obvious question: how the heck was it so easy for someone to do this, and what’s stopping others from doing exactly the same thing?

Understandably, people are freaking out that their own mail can be forwarded to pretty much anywhere someone wants. I mean just look at how easy it was for a major corporation’s mail to be forwarded to an individual apartment in an entirely different state.

But it prompted a discussion on change of address procedures and what would be done to ultimately prevent such glaring cases of fraud for going on as long as Henderson’s did.

As far as the USPS is concerned, however, it’s not a big enough problem for them to worry about because percentage-wise, change of address fraud isn’t that common. To put it in perspective, 37 million change of address requests were processed last year and 99.9 percent of them were deemed to be totally kosher.

“The rate of suspicious transactions reported by customers is less than 1/10 of 1 percent and many of the complaints are determined not to be related to fraud. A number of these complaints can be traced to domestic or other disputes between families and friends, who have access as a result of their relationship to information which allows one to forward mail. Still others can be attributed to service-related issues.

“We are continuously implementing security enhancements to enhance the security of our change of address process. We continue to assess these options, as we determine the best alternatives to protect the needs of our customers.” – USPS in a statement to NPR.

The simplicity of Henderson’s plan, despite what USPS says, has got some people admiring his bold criminal approach.

And it’s got some thinking that, hey, if it’s that easy, they should commit some change of address fraud of their own for a little while.

Maybe don’t get it re-routed to your home address and deposit the checks in an overseas account if you’re going to try and follow in Henderson’s footsteps. Not that you should, obviously, but still.

Woman Wants Parents To Ask Their Babies For 'Consent' Before Changing Diapers

Woman Wants Parents To Ask Their Babies For 'Consent' Before Changing Diapers

I remember being five years old and hate, hate, hating having to hang my coat up in the closet. I screamed to my mother one day that if I ever had kids of my own, after the millionth time she bothered me about hanging my coat up, that I would never ever ask my kids to clean up after themselves because it was the absolute worst and in no way fun.

I eventually came around because mom and dad were the boss of me and although I still lazily throw my clothes on the floor, more often than not I get embarrassed enough to not want to live like a slob and put them where they belong.

But my own childhood words are biting me in the butt right about now because my son also loves causing a mess. His idea of “playing” with blocks is to dump them all over the floor, kick them around for no longer than six seconds, then resume stomping around my apartment, pretending to be a T-Rex.

My toddler is just a giant bag of enthusiasm and stubbornness and I’m constantly trying to work to reroute that stubbornness into non-garbage social behavior. Yes he cries, yes he throws tantrums, yes he wants to have chocolate and gummy bears (which he refers to as “purple snacks,” regardless of their color) before he’s had an actual meal, but I don’t relent.

Now I don’t claim to be an expert on parenting, and I guess we’ll have to wait a couple of decades to see how my toddler and new baby daughter eventually turn out. But I have to admit I scoffed to myself and shook my head after I saw this headline where sexual consent expert, Deanna Carson, said that parents should ‘ask’ their baby’s permission before changing their diaper.

There’s an obvious joke to be made about this and it’s that babies can’t really understand a gosh darn word you say or really signal whether they approve of something or not. If they did, my daughter would answer with a cooing, “I AM” every time I ask with sugar in my voice who the cutest baby is.

But after the hullabaloo of that ridiculous headline died down, Caron’s “real” point was made and on the surface, it seems like a totally reasonable one: to train children from a young age about the importance of consent.

Waiting for their response is supposed to instill a sense in the child that their response is an important one and is supposed to give them a greater autonomy over their bodies when they’re older.

Now there are a lot of people who think that sounds good. Heck, even I did for a second.

I don’t ask my son if he wants to go to the bathroom, I pick him up and take him to the toilet and try to make going number 1 or number 2 into a fun game. There are some days he would fight me tooth and nail begging to get off the toilet, kicking and screaming. Then, five minutes later, he pees his pants. Whenever I asked him, previously, if he had to pee, he’d say no, then come rushing to me minutes later saying, “pee pee, pee pee” with already wet underpants.

My 1-month-old infant cries hysterically when there’s poop in her diaper, signaling to me that something is wrong. I put her on her changing table and then start singing our family’s, “let’s change the stinky diapey” song, removing her stanky clothes and poo-soaked diaper. She hates that just as much and starts wailing. So if I asked her consent before removing her diaper and she disapproves of it and I do it anyway, aren’t I just teaching her that no matter what she says or does, her consent ultimately doesn’t matter, and with someone who loves her unequivocally? 

You can’t let most adults do whatever they want, let alone give children a “say” in what they want to do. My son will eat bananas, grape tomatoes, and Maria cookies all day if I asked him what he wanted to eat. He’d sit in front of an iPad for hours. Oftentimes, he doesn’t even know what he wants. For two weeks he begged me everyday to go to the zoo. The day I hyped him up to go, he was ecstatic, then, at the last minute, he said, “No ZOO!” and then threw himself on the floor like a big drama queen.

30 minutes later, when we were at the park walking around, and he saw the animals and other kids playing, he was an overjoyed little nugget. I mean I can’t count the number of times I did something as an adult that I thought I didn’t want to do that ended up being awesome.

So she might be coming from a totally good place, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not a completely idiotic idea. There are better ways to teach children about consent. And I can tell you that my toddler already has a strong sense of personal autonomy. Just watch him wriggle away from random kids at the park who want to hug him or push off of relatives who give overbearing smooches – he’s got autonomy to spare.

And I’d wager plenty of other kids do as well. What do you think?

Joel Embiid's Out Of The NBA Finals But His Social Media Presence Keeps on Giving

Joel Embiid's Out Of The NBA Finals But His Social Media Presence Keeps on Giving

Joel Embiid has emerged as one of the hottest social media commodities in all of athletics. He is funny, engages with pop culture, active on his own social media, and it doesn’t hurt that his team—the Philadelphia 76ers—was one of the hottest teams in the NBA this season after years of “tanking” for high draft picks. Even though he missed 2+ seasons because of an injury, his talent and charisma kept him front and center.

One of the first things that endeared Embiid to commentators, fans, and non-fans alike was his crush on pop star Rihanna. Embiid famously asked Rihanna out for a date repeatedly beginning in 2014 and the pop star responded she’d say yes when he made an NBA All Star team. It has since become the stuff of legend. The entire “affair” has been documented at length. It wasn’t long before the media bit on the story as well.

He wasn’t shy about taking matters into his own hands either. Here he is professing his love for her to TMZ Sports.

TNT even approached him about on the court this season when he actually did make an All Star team. Turns out that Embiid has his pride.

Still that hasn’t dampened Embiid’s fans from creating and contributing to some memorable memes. They even use them to pitch Hollywood. 

But Embiid’s impact would have been diminished if his team hadn’t succeeded on the court. The 76ers—with the help of Embiid finally playing the majority of a season and new red-shirt rookie Ben Simmons—took the league by storm this year and propelled themselves into the 3-seed in the Eastern Conference. They then dispatched with the Miami Heat in a brief 5 game series, earning the enthusiastic praise of first-ballot Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade.

However, superstar veterans’ adulation isn’t going to keep you trending on social media. Embiid’s talent, for one, keeps him in the spotlight. But also the sheer force of his personality. 

On March 28th, Embiid collided with rookie Markelle Fultz as they both chased down a loose ball. The result of which was that Embiid missed about the last month of the season and had to be treated—including surgery—for a fracture orbital bone and concussion. As a result, he’s had to wear the above mask to protect his health as he continues to heal as he plays in these playoffs. Embiid, of course, found a way to capitalize on it. And remain in good spirits. The pain meds led to some hilarity on his Twitter, including re-visiting his “lost love.”

He attempted to Tweet through the pain during the Kansas (his alma mater) vs. Villanova (the eventual national champions) during the NCAA tournament shortly after his surgery, but his Jayhawks were run out of the gym, leading to this hilarious Tweet comparing Embiid’s feeling at this moment of recovery to Batman villain Two-Face/harvey Dent (played by Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight).

Joel figured the intense visual provided by the mask was a nice hook and decided to use the image to strike fear into the hearts of opposing fans and opponents in much the same way another Phantom (of the Opera) struck fear into the hearts of the performers and audiences of a fictional theater in French literature and modern musicals.

The Sixers followed suit, and figured Embiid’s media savvy would be marketable for the team’s brand as a whole. 

Embiid clearly learned to be himself and trust himself just as much as he trusts the process (“trust the process” became a mantra for the Sixers rebuild when former GM Sam Hinkie coined the phrase in an interview—Embiid embraced the notion and capitalized on it. “The Process” is his nickname, as you can see on the banner of his own Twitter page.

Embiid’s sense of humor and charisma has made him a source of ire for opposing fans. 

However, I doubt he’d be the source of much attention if he weren’t performing up to his All-Star standards. And even though the Sixers lost Game 1 of their series with Boston (in Boston) on Monday night, Embiid showed up. 

I wonder if his pre-game routine contributed at all. 

But this is precisely why Embiid is such a great follow, regardless of your interest in basketball or sports in general. He is a larger-than-life figure that doesn’t hide his humanity, his exuberance, or his youth. He exudes charisma and talent, and thus he is promo gold. 

And he has some celebrity admirers of his own, including Philly’s own Will Smith:

Rapper Meek Mill (who attended the Sixers series-clinching win in Game 5 against the Heat, fresh off his release from prison in an Embiid jersey):

And Kevin Hart:

Which led to some hilarious send ups elsewhere on social media:

Embiid’s unique blend of other-worldly talent and infectious personality helps him fit in uniquely well with today’s youth culture and Internet/meme culture, which is why—good health provided—he will likely remain an influential figure throughout the entirety of his career. He can ball and he can brand. 

He may not like wearing the mask much…

…but his fans are buying in to the image he’s projecting with it.

And so are Philly businesses, like Evil Genius Brewery.

And because of his personality and social media savvy, he provides fodder for all kinds of creative/hilarious material, both on and off the court.

And his skill and likeability have certainly helped him gain stature within the game of basketball, and helps him maintain his authentically humorous, super-hero status—even in the eyes of the most recent (and the most popular) recent Philly basketball legend.

This Viral Video Of A 4-Year-Old Boy Handling A Gun Caused A Huge Uproar Online

Gun control is a hotly debated issue in America and one that is sure to make the comments section on any video or article go absolutely insane.

In fact, people feel so passionately about the issue that some have gone so far to concoct conspiracy theories stating the victims of school shootings are “crisis actors” or they make up the “true origins” of shooters.

One point that a lot of gun control proponents bring up is the fact that the number of toddlers who kill and are killed by guns in American every year is ridiculously high: higher in 2015-2017, for example, than the number of people who were killed by acts of terrorism in the US.

So you can only imagine the online fury that was created after this video of 4-year-old Maverick cocking and pulling the trigger of a rifle at an NRA convention went viral.

The child was approached by huntress and outdoorswoman Kendall Jones who asked the young boy to show her what he can do with the gun. He then demonstrates his understanding and ability to engage the gun’s bolt and trigger mechanism, then unloads and loads the rifle’s magazine.

“That is adorable,” Jones says at the end of the video clip she posted on her Twitter account.

Kendall’s video of Maverick was posted with the caption, “This video is INCREDIBLE! Parenting done RIGHT.”

And there were a bunch of people who agreed with her and praised the 4-year-old’s parent’s decision to bring him to an NRA convention.

But there was an overwhelmingly negative response to Jones’ tweet – many of them from self-proclaimed gun enthusiasts and firearm owners themselves.

Many said that the child was treating the gun as a toy and wasn’t taught the proper way to handle or respect a firearm by his parents at all.

Others felt that there was a clear double-standard when it came to the young boy handling this gun, and that it was disturbing that he viewed handling the firearm like it’s a game.

Some thought that video was sending a dangerous message to children and couldn’t believe that the tenets of the NRA shifted away from gun safety.

It’s rare that a “pro-gun” video receives criticism from those who are pro gun ownership, but both “Libs” and “Cons” seemed to be on the same page with a 4-year-old demonstrating a lack of respect for guns and encouragement by adults for doing so.

This Fitness Blogger Says Ditching Booze Was The Main Factor In Getting Ripped

It seems like a week doesn’t go by without a crazy new diet tip or fad storming the internet, promising you that all of your weight loss woes are over.

It always starts with some “new knowledge.” You know, like carbs are bad for you, no it’s your daily caloric intake, no, it’s wine, no, it’s sugar, no, it’s actually not enough carbs released slowly throughout the day. Red meat’s bad for you one day, then the next day vegan diets are terrible. It seems like whatever you want to believe, you can find an “expert” who will confirm whatever it is.

It’s all a bit maddening.

However, there are some fitness and diet tips that are backed by science and are applicable to the vast majority of the population. It’s probably also best to try diet advice that, you know, was actually followed by someone who had great results with said advice and knows what they’re doing.

And if you ask any athlete or a person who specializes in fitness or bodybuilding, they’ll probably tell you that cutting out booze completely or greatly mitigating your alcohol intake is a huge part in staying fit. And fitness blogger Jelly Devote agrees.

She compared her body and how she feels today to her body seven years ago to how she felt back then. The difference is astounding and her cutting back on drinks had a lot to do with that.

ALCOHOL VS WATER 🥂💦
UNHEALTHY VS HEALTHY 🍩🥗
UNHAPPY VS HAPPY ☹️🤩
20 VS 27 YEARS 👱🏼‍♀️👵🏼 

Here’s the thing though: for Jelly, it isn’t about numbers on a scale – she doesn’t even weigh herself.

People always ask how much I’ve lost, and I honestly don’t know what my highest weight was (not the picture) due to hating myself so much I didn’t weigh myself (probably around 75kg) and I don’t weigh myself anymore (lightest I’ve been 45kg, NOT HEALTHY MIND) 🙆🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️ 

If you take a look at the caloric content of most alocholic beverages, you’ll see that they’re filled with sugar. For example, 4 ounces of champagne has 95 calories – and all of it is sugar. A 12-ounce bottle of Heineken? 150 calories. So two beers and a flute of champagne will put you at almost 400 calories, not to mention any snacks you might be munching on in between drinks.

There’s also another problem big drinkers face that could be messing up their weight loss – even if their workout regimen and solid meals are on point: their liver function.

The liver plays a huge role in helping your body metabolize fat, which is basically breaking fat molecules down so your body can use it as energy.

Excessive drinking may inhibit your liver’s ability to do that, so you’re doing yourself and your fitness goals a disservice by pounding down the brewskies. It’s not just the empty calories – you won’t be able to burn fat as efficiently even if you are within your daily caloric limits.

Just looking at the difference between a healthy liver and a damaged one tells you all you need to know about the dangers of too much booze. Plus, since the liver also acts as a filter for toxins in your body, a prime functioning one will help give you energy throughout the day to tackle those intense workouts and just overall feel better about yourself.

Which is what it’s all about at the end of the day, isn’t it?

Although Jelly has a pretty strong Instagram game, she’s not afraid to let everyone know that more often that not, no matter how in shape someone gets, their body doesn’t look so glamorous in every position.

And although we all know that in the back of our minds, it’s comforting to know how much of it is “smoke and mirrors.”

Because at the end of the day you can only make your body look as good as it possibly can for you.

That doesn’t mean you’re any less sexy or dedicated as someone else – as long as you work to your highest ability, you’ll be happy. It’s a cheesy message, but one that Jelly promotes in a ton of her posts.

Even if her before and after photos are night and day transformations.

Pretty darn motivational.

Girl Gets Fired From Her Job At Target After Prank Goes Viral

Pranks are the worst, but when executed correctly, they can get you a lot of attention. Bad attention.

Twitter user @Delilah810 found this out the hard way, after her “prank” on her best friend in the parking lot of a Target went viral. In it, she pushed that friend, who is sitting in a shopping cart, into a push. It looks pretty gnarly, but the friend was apparently unscathed:

They look like they’re having a blast, to be fair, but it’s a pretty dangerous thing to do. Darn, I sound old!

@Deliliah810’s tweet was doing pretty well already, but then she added an update:

Wow, no kidding.

She seems chill with it, though. Maybe because she’s managed to maintain her friendship, despite everything:

Though many of @Deliliah810’s fans are just run of the mill Twitter users who love a good parking lot disaster vid, there are also a wholllllle lotta people who work at or once worked at Target, too.

Man, if getting thrown into a push is what happens on a work day, what do Target employees get up to at a barbecue?

But there are plenty of people who are enjoying this story even if they have no personal association with Target.

It’s very meme-able:

And they’re loving her, no matter what she’s done:

Because they hate Target:

Don’t worry, there are plenty of other companies that could use @Delilah810’s skills:

Find your path and follow it!
