People Are Challenging Taylor Swift's Bad Girl Image And Their Stories Are Inspirational

Taylor Swift stans are not great about reading the room. While Swift has certainly produced some legitimate bops, her latest album has not been a critical success. People generally consider her a snake, and even if she is trying to make something of that with her new album, it doesn’t change wider public perception.

When Twitter user @xnulz asked “name a bitch badder than Taylor Swift” the Internet was ready with some answer.

Basically, everyone. At least according to twitter:

That was actually a very insightful list, full of women it’s worth looking up, and looking up to. And if you love Taylor Swift, that’s fine too!

Wendy's Just Destroyed McDonald's After Their Huge Black Friday Tweet Fail

It’s always a little embarrassing when huge social media accounts don’t proofread their posts, like this copy and paste gaffe from Scott Disick…

For billion dollar corporations the stakes are much higher. Every notable event, or trending holiday, is a chance to promote your product. Naturally, McDonald’s was all set to tweet out a Black Friday post.

Whoever’s handling their social media was on top of scheduling the tweets, however, they had a bit of a snafu when it came to posting the actual tweet itself.

That’s right: McDonald’s posted this embarrassing mistake, but the burger chain seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. Look at this little gem they followed up with:

It wasn’t enough to stop the internet roast machine from getting on McDonald’s case, however.

People guessed what was going through the Mickey D’s social media team’s heads after the accidental post.

While others pointed out that the brand’s exposure as a result of the mix-up might ultimately benefit them.

Then the worst possible thing happened to McDonald’s. Social media savage, Wendy’s, of course, responded to the glaring mistake.

And they didn’t hold back.

Americans Get Their First Look At K-Pop Group BTS–And They Like What They See

If you’re a longtime BTS fan, your hipster moment has finally arrived.

The Korean pop boy band supergroup performed at this year’s AMAs and basically stole the show. 

Major media outlets were going gaga for the band’s performance.

And it wasn’t long before people were mimicking their moves, either.

But for fans of the band, who probably got eye-rolls from their pals who “aren’t into K-Pop,” they knew BTS was going to crush it before they ever even took the stage.

Their show also earned them a bunch of new fans as well.

Also Twitter was geeking out over their dance skills.

If you didn’t see their performance you can check it out here:

People Are Already Dropping Their iPhone X's And We Can't Look Away

We’ve all heard horror stories about the iPhone breaking. Whether it’s because it’s so bendy…

…or scarily easy to shatter…

Surely, the new $ 1,000+ iPhone X would be a more stalwart handset that won’t shatter after slipping from your fingertips?

Well, actually, that’s not the case. There are some unfortunate souls who’ve purchased the phone, on launch day, and have been simultaneously let down by its break-tastic design and their own clumsiness.

And if you thought that fixing an iPhone’s screen was expensive before, just wait till you hear how much it costs to replace the X’s, Essential Phones-esque screen

$ 275, (or $ 25 less than price of a brand-new Moto G5 Plus) is what it costs to replace your iPhone X’s screen. Which makes watching these videos of people dropping them all the more painful to watch.

This guy drops the iPhone on purpose, but it doesn’t make it any easier to see.

Regardless of the phones’ well-documented fragility, people are still flocking to buy them. Will you save up to purchase an iPhone X? Or are you happy enough with your current phone?

Teacher's Trick To Make Girls Getting Their Periods In School Comfortable Goes Viral

A middle school teacher figured out an awesome way to help her students deal with getting an unexpected visit from the menstruation fairy, and wrote a post about her method on Facebook that went viral for its inspirationally easy trick.

“I have been doing this for a little bit now,” the post says. “I use my old ipsy make up bags and make “menstruation care packs” for my students who start their periods unexpectedly. In middle school this happens A LOT. I put a few pads in the bag and a couple tampons and panty liners, and I also add a few prewrapped disposable wipes. The students know that they can come ask, and they get a really pretty bag with their needed supplies inside. It’s discreet and more fun that being handed a giant pad. I make sure to tell them to take as much as they may need for the whole day. I make a point to ask if they need more to take home.”

The post was shared on Facebook over 10,000 times, and has inspired some teachers and parents to follow suit. Like this adorable grandpa: “Me be male, and not need such items, however, I do have a daughter (and 2 granddaughters) that have seen those days. I had to deal with the fluctuating hormones though! I will be putting together some of these “care” packages, and giving them to teachers in my area!” (He’s not sure what an Ipsy bag is, though—y’all, it’s a cheap makeup bag that comes every month as part of Ipsy, a makeup subscription box).

It’s a great reminder that young girls getting their periods doesn’t have to be a big dramatic thing or a source of embarrassment—it can be a normalized part of their day, as long as they’re set up for that.

After all, getting your period sucks enough as it is without worrying that you don’t have a pad or tampon available.

Woman Says She'll Send Any Man’s Unsolicited D*ck Pic To Their Mom, And A Guy Actually Challenged Her

Woman Says She’ll Send Any Man’s Unsolicited D*ck Pic To Their Mom, And A Guy Actually Challenged Her

Madi Kohn is a 20 year old student at Arizona State University and is really over getting unsolicited d*ck pics from guys online. Like, really over it. She’s so over it that her Tinder profile includes a warning that if she gets one, she will pass it along to the dude’s mother. 

Madi is not playing, you guys.

Like lots of other young women, Madi has her Tinder account linked to her Instagram, and, unfortunately, she’s kind of come to regret that decision. Having the two profiles linked creates a sort of loophole in the Tinder process. Whereas normally on Tinder people can’t message you unless you’ve matched with them, linking your Instagram account allows people you didn’t actually match with to still message you. 

That’s where Ryan comes in. 

He didn’t match with Madi on Tinder, but he began sending her “kind of creepy and kind of gross and annoying things” via Instagram. The messages, which Madi initially ignored, culminated in — you guessed it — an unsolicited d*ck pic. At six in the morning. Seriously. who sends d*ck pics at six in the morning?!? LET THE GIRL SLEEP! 

Madi was both tired and unimpressed.

So Madi did what she said she would. She did some digging through his profile, found the guy’s Facebook, where he had family members linked, and forwarded the pictures along to his mother. 

Madi is a woman of her word, y’all.

In the message, Madi wrote: “Hi, I see that your son is Ryan (redacted). I have never talked to him or met him, but he has sent me this picture through Instagram after discovering my profile. Can you please tell him not to send unsolicited pictures to women? I did not ask for it.”

Mom replied, apologizing in both English and Spanish, and saying she would have a talk with her son. The guy changed his Instagram name and username shortly after and has not contacted Madi since. But that’s not where the story ends. 

When Buzzfeed reached out to Ryan for his side of the story, he complained that he felt violated and that Madi couldn’t prove it was him who sent the pictures anyway. Evidently, he’s very concerned about matters of consent.

I will say this. If that was ‘me’ what she did was illegal. You can’t share those types of ‘private’ pics without consent. I am not sure if you are aware of that. My mom, my sister, other family members, my friends – no one cared.”

He then went on to talk about possibly pressing charges, but how he’d be willing to skip that if Madi leaves him and his family alone.

When Twitter caught wind of that aspect of the story, they went IN.

The “Shaggy Defense” didn’t hold up long this time.

We want to know what his friends and other family members have to do with this. Madi only sent the picture to his mother. Did he decide to hold an entire friends and family meeting and show them all? 

So confusing.

Not everyone thinks Madi did the right thing. While most of the women cheered her response, some of the men just didn’t seem to get it or understand just how often it happens. 

“It happened once, and I just ignored it.”

Michael took issue with what Madi was wearing in one of her images. We were going to describe it, but IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT A PERSON IS WEARING, THEY ARE NOT ASKING FOR IT UNLESS THEY LITERALLY ASK FOR IT. Sorry, caps got stuck there… 

Anyway, here’s Michael’s take on the issue.

Steven is just sitting here lamenting the greatness of our nation. 

And we’re kind of like “same.”

So once again, gentlemen, please remember d*ck pics are fine as long as you have the okay to send. Just ask, and if the answer is “no,” it’s “NO.” That’s it. 

Got it? Good.

The 28 Most Embarrassing Things Parents Have Ever Put Their Kids Through

Embarrassing your children is the most important thing you can do as as parent. You know, after feeding them. And I guess making sure they are are safe is important, too. Of course, you are also going to want to make sure you instill some good values in them, as well. And you have to make sure they have a roof over their head. That seems kind of similar to making sure they are safe, but it feels different enough where it is worth mentioning. 

And if you have two kids, you are going to want to make sure they get along with each other. Also, make sure that they both are fed and are safe. Really, I guess this is the same list as before just doubled. I mean, they only need one roof but…

Whatever. My point is that embarrassing your kids is the most important thing a parent can do. Or maybe it is in the top five most important things. You know what? Let’s call it ten.

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough Explain The Truth Behind Their Mar-A-Lago Visit

After Donald Trump launched a Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC hosts set the record straight.

“Mr. Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row. That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable,” the Morning Joe hosts told the Washington Post.

The op-ed piece delved into the president’s “unhealthy obsession” with Morning Joe after claiming he doesn’t watch the program.

Trump wrote a vitriolic two-part tweet attacking the engaged pair.

The hosts wrote that Trump invited them both to dinner on December 30, but Scarborough showed up without Brzezinski, who did not want to go.

The day after the dinner, Joe was asked by a disappointed Trump if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. “She reluctantly agreed to go. After we arrived, the president-elect pulled us into his family’s living  quarters with his wife, Melania, where we had a pleasant conversation. We politely declined his repeated invitations to attend a New Year’s Eve party, and we were back in our car within 15 minutes,” they explained to the WA Post.

“If she had, it would be evident to anyone watching Morning Joe on their high-definition TV. She did have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret.”

They went on to discuss Trump’s misogyny and how they appreciated some Republican lawmakers calling out Trump’s verbal assault on women.

“It would be the height of hypocrisy to claim the mantle of women’s empowerment while allowing a family member to continue such abusive conduct.”

The pair was threatened to have a negative National Enquirer report on them unless they retracted their brutal coverage of the president.

“We ignored their desperate pleas,” they said.

Following Friday morning’s Morning Joe, Trump tweeted:

Scarborough fired right back:
