Viewer Called News Anchor A Racist Slur And She Blasted Them On Air

CBS Atlanta anchor Sharon Reed gets a lot of hate mail at work, much of it leaning on pretty racist rhetoric from trolls online. It seems like she is just about done with tolerating it. BuzzFeed Newsreports that Reed received a letter from someone named “Kathy Rae,” which was filled with racist slurs, or it would have been if the person writing it knew how to spell. Reed shared the message on Facebook, which reads:

you need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight
it’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really??? you are what I call a Niger not a black person. you are a racist Niger. you are what’s wrong with the world

No, Kathy Rae doesn’t mean the country.

Reed also took time out to talk to Kathy Rae on air, and wherever she is, someone better take Kathy Rae to the burn unit, because this is scorching:

Reed repeated Kathy Rae’s email live, noting the message sender’s spelling errors. Then she decided to let Kathy Rae’s hate do the talking.

“I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint,” said Reed. “So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it’s okay to call this journalist a nigger. I don’t, but I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves.”

Everyone is straight up in love with Reed right now:

And don’t forget her coworkers sitting on either side during this epic clap back. They know what’s up.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Just Blasted Donald Trump And His Tweets

Apple CEO, Tim Cook recently took off his gloves (or perhaps his Apple  watch) to rip into Trump’s bizarre tweets. It would be one thing to attack Trump on Twitter or even an interview, but Cook chose to use Trump as the butt of a joke in a commencement speech he gave at  Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Tim Cook decided to make a joke about all the pranks, or “hacks”, that the students at MIT have pulled.

He couldn’t figure out how the MIT students have “obviously taken over the President’s twitter account…”

“You can tell college students are behind it because most of the tweets happen at 3 a.m.!”

Some people on twitter were gagged.

Tim Cook goes on to give a heartfelt speech, but we all noticed what he did there. We see you, Mr. Cook! Kudos to you!

Here’s his powerful commencement speech, Trump twitter joke included:

This Woman Just Blasted H&M For Their Absurd Clothing Sizes, And Others Can Relate

Lowri Byrne of the United Kingdom went in to an H&M to buy clothing in May. What she came out with was viral celebrity.

The problem that she had in the changing rooms is apparently one that is rather common, regardless of where you come from. The issue? H&M’s clothing sizes.

Your humble writer gave up on H&M many, many years ago because the sizes he actually fit in made him feel like an overweight monster. Lowri had a similar experience.

Lowri posted a photo of the outfit in question, and a scathing and sarcastic message alongside of it, directly to H&M’s Facebook page.

“Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous! I’m a size 12 and small busted and today in a H&M store I had to ask if this dress came in a size 18 (it didn’t…) 

The dress I have on in these photos is a size 16, and I could barely breathe. Not only was this annoying because I wanted to buy this dress, but so many women take what size dress they buy to heart. If I was one of these girls (thankfully I’m not) requesting a size 18 dress would seriously devastate me!

When I asked if this dress came in a 18 the store assistant said “ahh yeah you have to go up a couple of sizes with these”. A couple?!? going up 3-4 sizes surely should make you realise that you need to seriously sort out sizing!!!”

The post went promptly viral, gathering almost 4,000 reactions, 355 shares, and 586 comments. Mostly all of them were in favor, and in agreement.

H&M, to their credit, did issue the following official statement:

“H&M hugely values all customer feedback. It is only ever our intention to design and make clothes that make our customers feel good about themselves, any other outcome is neither intended nor desired. H&M’s sizes are global and the sizes offered in the U.K. are the same in all the 66 markets in which we operate in and online. 

As there is no global mandatory sizing standard, sizes will differ between brands and different markets. Our dedicated, in-house sizing department works according to an average of the sizes and measurements suggested by the markets we operate in. H&M sizes are continually reviewed by our in-house sizing department.”

Will H&M ever catch up with the rest of the world and provide sizing that doesn’t make people feel gross? We won’t hold our breath… unless we’re trying to fit into a pair of their jeans.
