People Are Roasting The 23andMe DNA Test With These Hilarious Memes

I can get why people are obsessed with the origins of their ancestry.

One: because it’s cool to know where you came from and chart all of the different ethnicities and parts of the world that had to be involved to culminate in the creation of you.

There could be any number of reasons a person would want to know the origins of their genetic makeup and there’s no shortage of services that’ll do that for you.

Like the popular service, 23andMe. It’s gotten so popular, in fact, that people have used its test results template to create some hilarious memes.

It’s the perfect vehicle for making references to popular song lyrics.

People have also been using the memes to make fun of themselves.

They’re just so, so, so good.

This person was shocked to discover that a significant portion of their genetic makeup is Irish soda bread.

While others use the meme as an opportunity to catch RDJ’s attention.

This person was shocked to discover they were made out of clothing.

The finds were just super fascinating.

This Twitter user found a review that I hope is some kind of twisted joke while signing up for 23andme’s service.

In recent news, there’s been some trepidation about ancestry sites, as many are afraid the DNA testing facilities are just fronts to collect user data and then dole out that data to whoever they see fit.

The concerns were originally raised when it was revealed that the Golden State Killer was helped identified by an ancestry service similar to 23andme.

So even if your personal data’s being given out, at least you can console yourself with the fact that a killer was caught because you maybe gave away some of your privacy, yeah?

Kellyanne Conway Makes Up 'Bowling Green Massacre' And Twitter Can't Stop Roasting Her

Kellyanne Conway has become somewhat of a running joke/horrifying reality check after she went live on air and tried to convince America that “alternative facts” actually exist.

Yes, that’s right, the woman went on TV and as a representative of our current Presidential organization argued that the very fabric of reality as we know it is absolutely subjective. Now I just want to state on the record that if “alternative facts” actually do catch on, I want to explain to my bank that I wasn’t overdrawn, because in my alternative fact reality I’m a millionaire.

Let’s just cut to the chase: alternative facts are lies. If someone tells you that the brownies in front of you are actually grilled chicken breast, that’s not an alternative fact, that’s a lie. If you run over someone in the middle of the road and you say you didn’t, but you totally did, that’s a lie.

Conway dished out her latest lie on MSNBC, where she flat-out fabricated a story about an attack on US soil to support Trump’s refugee ban.

Trump supporters then immediately started saying that Trump’s refugee ban was being unfairly criticized, as Obama did the same thing in 2011 as per Conway’s lie. However, Obama’s refugee slowdown is vastly different than Trump’s ban, and the two men who Conway wrongly said killed people on US soil are now serving life sentences in a federal prison after they were caught trying to send money and weapons to Al-Qaeda.

Twitter obviously began roasting Conway for blatantly lying to Chris Matthews’ face about the whole Bowling Green ‘Massacre’.

Not sure how they’ll spin this one.

Trump Supporters Are Boycotting Starbucks For Hiring Refugees And Twitter Can't Stop Roasting Them

Following President Trump’s executive order banning immigrants and refugees from several Muslim-majority countries, outraged businesses have voiced their opposition to what they believe to be a discriminatory and damaging policy. Lyft, for example, pledged to donate $ 1 million to the ACLU over the next four years, and executives at Netflix, Apple, and Facebook have spoken out condemning the policy — citing adverse impacts on their companies’ talent pool. 

Starbucks is the most recent business to join the resistance to the immigration ban. On Sunday, CEO Howard Schultz announced that the coffee giant is committed to hiring 10,000 refugees at store locations worldwide

“We are developing plans to hire 10,000 [refugees] over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business,” Schultz wrote in a statement released to Starbucks employees. “And we will start this effort here in the U.S. by making the initial focus of our hiring efforts on those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel.”

Many Trump supporters, furious about the company’s decision, took to Twitter to encourage Americans to boycott Starbucks. 

The anti-Starbucks messages ranged from outrage over the hiring of refugees over veterans to fear that refugees would actually poison the coffee. 

Starbucks supporters, however, are roasting the hell out of the boycotters — criticizing their logic and bigotry.
