Mom Shares Picture Of Her Daughter On The Beach And Gets Slammed Over Child's Skin

Mom bloggers and Instagram influencers are very popular on social media, but part of the job is receiving a lot of scrutiny for how you’re doing as a parent. One woman just got put through the gauntlet after posting an innocent picture of her kid enjoying a beach day.

This is her daughter Winter (thus, life with Winter):

Winter is more camera shy than her mom. Then there’s the wee babe, Wilde, who has not yet developed the motor functions to crawl away from branding opportunities:

As a mom Instagram model, Jones shares a lot of pic of the kids enjoying surf and sun, but one picture of Winter recently kicked up a controversy. It showed Winter walking along the beach, appearing very tan:

According to Metro.uk, Jones woke up to discover the post had been flagged and removed.

Apparently, the image had been littered with comments about Winter’s skin tone, like, “It’s disgusting to see how dark your daughter’s skin in,” and “Have you heard of suncream? How about you start using it before your kid looks 40 at four. Horrible mother.”

Jones believes the image was flagged because people were disparaging her daughter’s skin. She posted a follow up on Instagram telling the haters to step off:

In the caption she wrote:

The comments were full of supportive people who tan easily:

The feedback was so positive that Jones followed with another pic of Winter having a blast on the beach:

In the caption, Jones says that she’s incredibly grateful for the response, and states that her family is of Aboriginal descent, which is partly of why Winter’s skin tends to tan quickly rather than burn:

“So the past 48 hours has been pretty crazy for me. I didn’t expect to get the response I have from my post. I want to say a huge thankyou for everyone writing to me, I appreciate your support and kind words. It’s lovely to see that majority of people writing to me are against online bullying. In regards to the photo I posted I can totally see both sides of the ballpark now. I saw no problem with the photo I chose to post because there was no inappropriate parts showing, just Winters side profile. I just want to say though that I do respect even the people who have wrote into me disagreeing with my post but I thank you for going about it in a tasteful way and not shaming my child for her skin colour. We are of Aboriginal decent and we are proud of our heritage. I have learnt a lot from this experience and I won’t change the way I post but I will be more mindful of what I choose to share online. Thankyou once again for connecting with me and sharing your own stories. I’m making my way through my messages and will get back to every one of you.”

Look, nothing is keeping this family off the beach:

They got an umbrella, they got sunscreen—now everyone else should get a life!

Reporter Shares Excerpt From Trump's Speech To The Navy–And Everyone's Perplexed

There may be literally nothing more confusing in this country than President Trump.

How do you even mix up the biggest loss of USA life in 100 years with a convenience store?

And in his speech to the US Navy, MSNBC reporter Kyle Griffin noticed that there was not one coherent thought to be found in Trump’s word salad.

INVISIBLE PLANES, Y’ALL.  INVISIBLE PLANES.  SO GOOD YOU CANT SEE THEM.

“I said, ‘That helps.   That’s a good thing.'”

Yes, this is all fun and games, but Trump is playing with lives here.  The US armed forces depend upon a Commander-in-chief to make informed decisions about their equipment as well as their plan of approach; and unless Trump is living in the DC Universe with Wonder Woman, there’s a good chance that plane is simply not invisible.

Boston News Reporter Shares First Photos Of Vegas Terrorist's Arsenal Of Weapons

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock’s horrific act of mass murder has yielded pain, sorrow and many many unanswered questions. 

On Tuesday, we got a bit more information, as the first images of the arsenal of weapons assembled by the gunman emerged online. 

Jacqui Heinrich, a Boston reporter for FOX 25 TV shared an exclusive first look at some of Paddock’s guns on Twitter:

Since then, more images have trickled out from the horrific scene of the crime:

Reports indicate that at least 23 firearms, some ammo, a bipod, optics, and a hammer — that was most likely used to smash out the windows — were strewn about the luxury room, which towered 32 floors above the concert venue, where 58 innocents died and 489 people were injured.

In addition, authorities recovered 19 firearms plus explosives and several thousand rounds of ammunition from Paddock’s home in Mesquite, Nevada and found several pounds of ammonium nitrate, which is used to make explosives, in Paddock’s car.

Law enforcement officials had hoped to learn more about Paddock’s motives from his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who has returned from The Philippines and is cooperating with the investigation. In a statement she said that Paddock “never said anything to me, or took any action that I was aware of, that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.”

“It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone.”

Senator Tammy Duckworth Shares Selfie After Breaking Her Leg During A Workout

WARNING: The photo in this article may be AWESOME.

Usually a photo of a broken leg could be unsettling at best, and gruesome at worst. But Senator Tammy Duckworth from Illinois just proved that a broken leg can be hilarious. 

For those unfamiliar with Duckworth, she’s a former U.S. Army helicopter pilot who lost both legs in 2004 after a her helicopter was shot down over Iraq. She now wears prosthetic legs. 

Clearly a badass woman with a sense of humor, Duckworth tweeted:

Alex Jones Shares Video ‘Proving' Michelle Obama 'Is A Man'—And Chelsea Clinton Shot Back

Conservative commentator Alex Jones is at it again. 

This time he shared a video that he claims is “final proof that  Michelle Obama is a man.” Oh, and he implied that Joan Rivers was killed for revealing this information.

Riiiiight.

Jones, who has previously suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a  hoax and who has cast doubt on 9/11, has long promoted the theory that Michelle Obama was born a man but said the ‘new viral video’ proved that he did not invent the theory himself.

We won’t dignify the video with an embed here, but here’s a taste of Jones’s words on the matter: 

“Analyzing the photographs, Michelle appears to have a very large penis in her pants. Her shoulders are wide, her face is very, very, masculine.”

“She looks like a tranny and so you ask yourself, are the children a beard?” 

DailyMail

Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter to slam Jones and praise the former First Lady.

Chelsea also made sure to mention she didn’t visit Jones’s InfoWars site.

Others chimed in, supporting Chelsea and Michelle.

And she will continue to fight the good fight. Bravo Chelsea! Thank you for persisting!

Reporter Shares Photo Of Oval Office Under Construction, And People Have Concerns

The White House is a historic institution that is among the most important buildings in our young nation.

While Donald Trump is on a very important/his 48th visit to a golf course this week, the Oval Office is undergoing some renovations. And as we all know, Trump is known for going a tad overboard with interior decoration.

A reporter snapped a pic of the empty office in a truly resonant symbol of our times:

So as we are left to ponder the results of these redecorations on Trump’s watch, people have concerns. 

With 2,000 likes, this simple request seems to be resonating.

Trump already replaced the muted red curtains in the Oval Office with gold curtains because consistent branding is important to salesmen. He’s already on record as saying that the White House is a ‘dump.’ And his current vacation is slated to last another two weeks, so whatever is happening in the Oval Office has plenty of time to happen. 

Artists’ renderings of what the redecoration might look like flooded the Internet. 

Not everyone was so concerned though. For Eric, the empty room offered a bit of relief. 

And this user imagined what an exterior renovation might look like.

Here’s hoping the drapes are where it ends.

Model Shares Terrible Story Of Her Assault To Challenge How We Raise Girls

Australian model Jessica Leahy is encouraging parents to change how they socialize young girls and boys so that both can grow up in a safer society. Part of that means sharing her own stories of harassment, some of which are extremely harrowing.

Leahy has been harassed a lot in her life, and not just because she’s gorgeous. Women everywhere can harassed by men. She wrote about her experiences for Whimm, explaining what she thinks needs to change if life for women is going to change.

Leahy’s experience is sadly way too common:

Leahy wants parents to stop teaching girls to be”good” or quiet, especially when they’re the targets of harassment or abuse. She writes, “From birth, we are told not to be rude, or bossy, or difficult and above all, not to be a bitch. And it’s this obsession with ‘being nice’ that is getting good girls into bad trouble.”

But it’s not just on girls to change and get less “nice.” Leahy writes that for women, it’s a constant struggle to decide which battles to fight. It can be exhausting calling out and confronting every instance of sexual harassment and sexism you encounter everyday. 

She asks that men start stepping in when they see a woman being harassed. She asks that when men are along together that they call out “locker room talk.” She says what we need are “decent guys raised to be equally invested in making bacon out of chauvinist pigs.” 

Give the ladies a break and pick up some of the slack, fellas. Or at the very least, keep your hands to yourself.

Man Shares Photos Of Racist Trump Supporter’s Car, And Twitter Exploded

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their car. We don’t know who owns or drives the car that Krang T. Nelson (seriously, Twitter, never change, these name puns are amazing…) parked next to, but the Twitterverse has collectively decided they’re the absolute worst. 

Things started with Twitter user @KrangTNelson posting this tweet.

For those having trouble seeing, we’ll go image by image. 

First up, this person has a noose hanging from their rear-view mirror.

This is the most troubling image of the three, given the recent unfortunate resurgence of the noose as a symbol of racial intimidation among white supremacists.

Next, there’s a sticker depicting Trump attacking Obama.

Wrapping up the trifecta of terrible, we have aNickelbackCD.

Twitter exploded with responses.

Intellectually based and factually correct snark is the very best kind of snark. Very high quality.

Took the words out of our mouth.

One user had a not-so-subtle suggestion for Krang.

Succinct and to the point.

@Damons had a different perspective than most.

Northeast really just wants everyone to be happy.

Is this a thing? Please let this be a thing.

Saint Krang DOES have a nice ring to it.

Steve-O Shares Graphic Photo Of Injury From His Most Dangerous Stunt Yet

Source

Mankind still has many questions about the nature of existence: what is dark matter? What is it like inside a black hole? How is Steve-O still alive? These questions continue to baffle even the most prominent scientists in their field. Take the Steve-O one, for instance. He recently posted this photo to Instagram which shows his body covered in painful first and second degree burns.

What happened, Steve-O? Was it just another ordinary day of dodging full-sized fireworks, eating brick pizza ovens, or kissing active volcanos (all things I assume you’ve done)? No, it turns out, Steve-O got these burns while making “snow” angels in rocket engine fuel.

[I] put a tea cup of all this stuff on top of my head and then I just f*****g put a blanket of the s**t on the floor and f*****g laid it. I was making snow angels with rocket engine fuel.

Apparently, it’s the “grand finale” of Steve-O’s upcoming comedy special, that “ties a lot of s**t together.”

Warning: In this video Steve-O is both shirtless and covered in burns. 

HOW ARE YOU STILL LIVING?!
