Here's Why The Internet Is Full Of Photos Of A Red Bathing Suit

You may have noticed the same photograph of a woman in a red bathing suit all over your social media feed. Why is the image going viral? On Wednesday, the swimsuit company Sunny Co. Clothing promised a free suit — valued at $ 64.99 — to anyone who shared the photo on Instagram. 

The post blew up, attracting over 340,000 likes, and forcing Sunny Co. Clothing to later tell followers that it might cap the offer. Recipients, the company explained, may not get the suits any time soon due to high volume. 

But while the promotion was popular, not everyone was happy. Social media was flooded with complaints from users whose feeds were clogged with the photo.

Others called the promotion a scam. 

Now we just need to wait and see if anyone will ever get one.

Here's What It's Really Like To Be A Bouncer

While you probably spent many years of your youth viewing them as the muscular barriers between you and a night of underage drinking, bouncers are the unsung heroes of Saturday nights. 

Shockingly, dealing with crowds of intoxicated people hoping to get into a bar or club can isn’t always rewarding — but the gig usually results in good stories. 

Bouncers opened up to Whisper to share some of their best confessions about the job.

Here's How The World Reacted To The Death Of Cuban Leader Fidel Castro

Ask a dozen people who Fidel Castro was, and you’ll get a dozen different answers. To many, he was a revolutionary who gave Cuba back to the people following his coup in 1959. To others, he was a dictator who oppressed his people and nearly plunged the world into nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis only a few years later. 

It’s understandable then that reactions have been so mixed since his brother, Raul Castro, announced that the 90-year-old had died early this morning. 

In Cuba itself, a period of mourning has been announced on the island until 4 December, when his ashes will be laid to rest in Santiago.

President Obama, who ended the United State’s embargo of Cuba, said in a statement that “history will judge the enormous impact” of Cuba’s late leader on the world. While president-elect Donald Trump was far less diplomatic in his reaction. 

Reactions on social media have seen just as mixed.

'Making A Murderer' Is Getting A Second Season, Here's Everything We Know

Remember earlier this year when everyone was losing their minds over Making A Murderer? Well, Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are about to make a return. Netflix has confirmed that season 2 is currently in production. 

The new episodes will feature Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner as she takes on the case. In a statement, show runners Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said:

“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series.

“The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”

There’s no word on when it will be released, or how many episodes we’ll get, so we’re just going to have to wait patiently for that. 

If you’ve forgotten the facts, here’s a quick run down. In 1985, Avery was wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years for sexual assault. He was set free in 2003 after advances proved that it was another man. But he Dassey were quickly accused and found guilty of murdering 25-year-old Teresa Halbach. 

Many believe that they were set up by police in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, to avoid a $ 36 million lawsuit for the wrongful conviction. You can read more about that here

Fans are understandably excited by the show’s return…
