Woman Gets Punched In The Face For Asking Man To Stop Manspreading

In New York City, riding the subway is a fact of life for most commuters. Sometimes, however, that means sharing a train with some questionable characters. For instance, Sam Saia was on her way to work when the man next to her began “manspreading,” that much-loathed practice of opening his legs to take up more than his fair share of space.  

Since he was pushing her into the wall, Saia asked the man to stop. He responded by punching her in the face.

After the man attacked her, several bystanders jumped in and confronted him. 

One video shows another passenger holding the assailant’s arms down and demanding he get off at the next stop:

After the incident, Saia attempted to file a report at the New York Police Department’s 17th precinct, but, once there, she was passed off to the Transit District 34 headquarters. The headquarters then told her that filing a report with them would be a waste of time since she could do so at any precinct (confusing), so she decided to take matters into her own hands. 

Saia commented to the Daily News:

I said to myself, ‘OK, I’ll just blow it up on social media. I’m here doing what the police are supposed to do. I just want awareness and I want us to be safe.

People shared Saia’s Facebook post over 1,200 times before it was removed, presumably due to the internal inquiry initiated by the New York Police Department. Her words online have brought widespread awareness to the issue — and connected her with the bystander who took the video.  

On Friday, Saia posted on Facebook:

The internet can be a beautiful thing!

Woman Dyes Her Face Pink With 'Washable' Paint And The Internet Wasn't Kind

If you plan on putting paint anywhere near your skin, make sure it’s body paint. Some paint may say that it washes off of skin, but they’re usually talking about small amounts of paint you accidentally get on your arm. Poster paint probably isn’t going to wash off easily, as Twitter user Leah recently discovered… 

People were relentless in their mocking.

Kid Becomes Internet Hero Because Of How He Reacted To Mike Pence Elbowing Him In The Face

Kid Becomes Internet Hero Because Of How He Reacted To Mike Pence Elbowing Him In The Face

The vice president was hosting military families for National Military Spouse Appreciation Day on Tuesday at the White House.

While thanking the kids for showing up to the event, he accidentally smacked one in the face:

While most kids, and adults for that matter, would have just let the incident go, this brave soul did not.

He was due an apology from Pence, and he wasn’t going to stop until he got one.

The Huffington Post edited together a video of the boy’s persistent request, and it is kind of adorable:

Twitter was quick to praise the kid for seeking out the apology he deserved:

And while we’re happy for the kid, we can’t help but wonder when OUR apology is coming:

Justin Trudeau's Face When Trump Went For A Handshake Is Priceless

Justin Trudeau is known as Canada's Golden Boy. He's young, kind-hearted, has an open policy for refugees, and is all about charity and giving back to the people. He's also in incredible shape and is super, duper, dreamy.

Donald Trump is the complete opposite.

So the impending meeting between the two of them was one that everyone was desperately looking forward to.

Well it finally happened this past Monday, and although it was just a run-of-the-mill meet and greet between two world leaders, something surfaced.

Namely this amazing photo that was captured right before Trudeau shook Donald Trump's hand.

It was if in that split-second Trudeau couldn't betray himself and revealed what he and much of the world felt about the Donald's presidency.

And, of course, the internet took notice of the photo and had a lot to say about it.

People also noticed that Ivanka was very, very happy to meet the Canadian Prime Minister as well.

But in all honestly, can you blame her?

Woman Shares Story Of How Her Ex-Boyfriend Ended Up With A Face Full Of Foot Dust

We’ve all had someone in some point of our lives that simply refuses to listen to what we have to say. They’re usually the people that end up getting the boot, and that was the case with Sarah Gailey and her now ex-boyfriend.

Now ‘foot dust’ is a rather odd term unless you regularly scrape down the callouses on your feet, which you really need to start doing if you don’t already. The texture is both grainy and airy, and if you miss whatever container you’re discarding the shavings in, the small pile of former you scatters all over the place and becomes even more difficult to clean.

With that in mind, check out Sarah’s story on how her boyfriend ended up with a face full of her relative’s foot dust.
