Viewer Called News Anchor A Racist Slur And She Blasted Them On Air

CBS Atlanta anchor Sharon Reed gets a lot of hate mail at work, much of it leaning on pretty racist rhetoric from trolls online. It seems like she is just about done with tolerating it. BuzzFeed Newsreports that Reed received a letter from someone named “Kathy Rae,” which was filled with racist slurs, or it would have been if the person writing it knew how to spell. Reed shared the message on Facebook, which reads:

you need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight
it’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really??? you are what I call a Niger not a black person. you are a racist Niger. you are what’s wrong with the world

No, Kathy Rae doesn’t mean the country.

Reed also took time out to talk to Kathy Rae on air, and wherever she is, someone better take Kathy Rae to the burn unit, because this is scorching:

Reed repeated Kathy Rae’s email live, noting the message sender’s spelling errors. Then she decided to let Kathy Rae’s hate do the talking.

“I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint,” said Reed. “So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it’s okay to call this journalist a nigger. I don’t, but I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves.”

Everyone is straight up in love with Reed right now:

And don’t forget her coworkers sitting on either side during this epic clap back. They know what’s up.

Girl Gets Added To Soccer Mom Group Chat And Can't Stop Trolling Them

Sometimes the best things in life happen when you just ride the wave. Obviously this doesn’t apply to every situation. Like when a ship’s sinking and you need to get off and find a lifeboat, maybe it’s best if you stop engorging yourself at the seafood buffet and focus on saving your life.

But other times in life, there’s tons of fun to be had by just saying yes to a situation. Would you like fries with that? Yes. Would you like to come out tonight instead of staying in and browsing memes all night? Also yes.

Would you like to pretend like you’re one of the soccer moms on this group chat, despite being added to it accidentally? Well Facebook user Christi Rantis Lally user said yes to this situation and it provided some hilarious results.

Watch all the drama unfold below.

Why aren’t pudding cups acceptable snacks? Is it because you need to eat them with a spoon? Or the sugar content??

The Internet Made Film Titles British And Just Try Keeping A Stiff Upper Lip About Them

Need a good distraction from the horrible news? Check out the delightful results of Twitter’s attempt to make movies more British using the hashtag #makeafilmtotallyBritish.

You know how British accents make people seem smarter, funnier, and better-looking? It apparently works the same way with movies.

And honestly, I think some of these movies should actually get made.

Even the ones that are already really British.

But please, if just one of these movies actually gets made: let it be a remake of Face/Off starring Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

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

Starbucks Reports Sharp Increase In Quarterly Profits

“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.

People Are Sharing Things That Santa Once Told Them And We Can't Stop Laughing

This year has been a long year, and with Christmas coming up, we’re finally winding things down with last minute holiday shopping and improvised travel plans with people named Lauren that still have no idea what it means to pack their things ahead of time so we can leave on time, but that’s beside the point.

While the rest of us responsible travelers were sitting around and waiting for everyone else to make this holiday weekend the stress-fest we knew it would be, the #SantaOnceToldMe hashtag surfaced and people used it to share some holiday cheer. And jeers because, you know, it’s the internet, but mainly cheer. Check them out.

This Local Dentist Is Buying Kids Halloween Candy From Them For A Really Great Cause

The last thing a dentist usually wants to hear when a kid plops down in their chair is that he just spent his last week after Halloween clearing out his entire duffel bag of candy.

And the first thought the childhood version of you has for that is probably, “WELL TOO BAD! I WORKED DAMN HARD FOR THIS CANDY AND I’LL DO WHATEVER I WANT WITH IT!” Which is fine, you’re entitled to that opinion.

And adult you, well, might very well have that same reaction, but at least there’s the knowledge that these sweets will ultimately jack your teeth up. This is especially true if you’ve had to take care of a cavity or two in your life.

So this dentist’s office decided to help kids protect their teeth while serving a good cause. And to do that, they want to buy their extra Halloween candy.

Tillery Family Dental is willing to give kids $ 1 per pound of candy ($ 5 maximum) for all their leftover treats. While that might not sound like the sweetest deal out there, it’s for a pretty noble reason.

All the extra Halloween candy from home is being sent to US troops stationed overseas so they can enjoy some all-hallows-goodness.

The dentistry is also giving trick-or-treaters willing to part with their precious sweets (for cash) some paper and writing utensils so they can write notes for the soldiers who’ll be snacking on their forked-over sweets.

The candy’s being shipped to Operation Gratitude and will be wrapped up as part of care packages for US soldiers abroad and first responders stationed home.

Kids are also getting a goody bag from the dentist of their own: a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and other dental stuff.

Nowhere near as exciting as a stash of Reese’s, but at least they can rest well knowing they helped but a smile on a homesick person’s face. And that they probably have one less cavity to worry about. (h/t fox59)

17 Women Talk About The Most Romantic And Unique Presents Their Boyfriends Have Given Them

There’s nothing like getting a gift from someone, except giving a gift. It sounds cheesy but to see the look of happiness on a person’s face when you give them a gift is one of my favorite things in the world to do. When you see someone totally surprised and completely happy with something you’ve just handed them…man…there’s no better feeling.

In a recent Reddit post, these girlfriends got together to share the most unique and romantic gifts their boyfriends ever got them. So if you’re looking for ideas to show that special someone how much you care, take notes.

1.

While not traditionally romantic, my SO took care of all of my little needs when I was overseas for two weeks. Gas tank filled, apartment spotless, laundry done, plus a bottle of my favorite wine waiting for us. I was so blown away by all of attention to detail!

Maybe it wasn’t really unique but the way he presented it was really original.

He gave me a cube made of tissue packages and when I opened it there was an external hard drive with all sorts of things on it that I had wished on a list the months before. (he just told me to keep a list of the things I wanted, had no clue he was planning to do with this, thought he’d forget like most guys.) The folders all had titles like “to the most beautiful woman in the world”.

Another time he sent me to the store while he waited outside and when I came out he had screwed a drink-holder on my bike.

Today he plopped my favorite kit-kats (peanut butter) in my bag while I wasn’t looking and it was such a pleasant surprise, because I hadn’t eaten any or even talked about this with him in months.

None of the presents are unique or even particularly expensive but the way he gifts them is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.

Update: For those in the US without any access to peanut butter Kit Kats, my SO advises try a jar of peanut butter and regular Kit Kats.

Favorite present from my now husband was when we first started dating. He wrote down dates and places of different things we had done together on little pieces of paper and put them in a little jar… i.e. ‘first kiss – 9/8/14 Hibernian Cafe’. It was adorable. I still have it and read through it sometimes.

We were once out walking at night and I saw someone suddenly approaching us very deliberately and quickly. I of course did the natural thing to do when one is startled by another person, screamed loudly and jumped backwards a good 5 feet.

Turns out it was just our reflections in a shop window.

He got me a mirror for my birthday with “Don’t be Scared” written on it.

He took me to an arcade and bought me like $ 100 worth of tokens and we played the same game for hours and then bought lots of the little cheap prizes. I still have them all, including a little mood ring with hearts on it, and a lamp that’s a shark that lights up different colors.

So, my first real boyfriend was an amazing man that listened to me and really cared about me. I like to tell stories about how my brothers and I grew up. One day I mentioned that every Christmas, I would fall asleep to the sound of my dad watching Monster Truck Jam on TV. Partly because of that memory, I love monster trucks. My boyfriend bought us tickets to go see them in person. He hated monster trucks. He hated the noise, the crowd, everything. But every year for my birthday, he bought tickets and took me to see them. It’s unique and romantic because I don’t know of many guys willing to forgo their own comfort like that for someone else. And he listened to me and surprised me with something that he knew would mean a lot to me. :’) That goofball.

It wasn’t the gift, it was the sentiment. The major one that stands out was when my 2nd husband proposed.

It wasn’t formal or expected. It was on my 40th birthday and he gave me a gold ring. But it’s what he said.

“I love you, SFNB. I want nothing more for you on your birthday than for you to be happy. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

We were only dating 1 year. While it was too soon, the words he spoke…I have no words to describe my inner reaction. I knew. I just knew. The engagement was 4 years long.

In comparison, my first husband would gift me nice things for my birthday but then hold that over my head as he behaved badly saying, “But I spent X amount of dollars on that gift!” and especially his proposal was something along the lines of “Well, I guess I’m supposed to propose marriage to ya. SO yeah. Here’s the ring.”

For my high school graduation, my parents got me this frame that had the letters cut out to spell out the name of my high school…like this: https://themomentsthatmatter.com/custom-letter-mats/

It was one of my favorite things in my bedroom but two years later, my house burned to the ground and I lost everything. For my birthday after that happened, my college boyfriend handmade another frame like the one my parents got me, but spelled out the name of our college. It was definitely one of the top presents he’s ever gotten me in the past 8 years of our relationship.

I am a true, real, female sexy lady (and currently hoping to find a new boyfriend through reddit)

The one thing my ex did that completely swept me off my feet was send me his personal banking information, credit card numbers and social security number

Last year my boyfriend bought me a jersey cow. It’s not really unusual for our life style but I imagine not everyone ends up with a cow for Christmas.

SO got me a bunch of socks for V day one year. I love socks. The diamond editions of the Disney movies when they come out of the vault. He’s gotten me a jar that looks like Sally’s Deadly Nightshade one from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

He gets me video games he knows I’ll like, buys me books he thinks I’ll be into. He got me a really nice laptop one year. A kitten. Oh, a gun! That was sweet bc I needed one and he worries about me.

We’ve been together 10 years so he knows me probably better than I know myself. These are just some of the more memorable ones.

The greatest, most romantic gift you can give your girlfriend is your attention and by that I mean, PAY ATTENTION to what makes her happy. Yes, it’s a cliché, but it really is the thought that counts. All of the best gifts I can remember receiving over the years, were ones that were special only to me. Read down this thread and you’ll see that the things being mentioned weren’t that awesome or romantic in and of themselves – they were romantic because they had meaning to the woman they were given to. Not only will it be something she likes, but you will also demonstrate that you have been paying attention and want her to be happy…i.e. the quickest way to a woman’s heart 🙂

honestly for me its was just a random candy bar outa the blue. i was having a not so good day and he went to the store for groceries, he came back and handed me some reeses and said i saw these and thought about you and thought you might like them, do you want them now or for me to put them in the freezer for you? it made me happy he thought about me and brought them to me. he could have just put them in the freezer since thats my preferred way to eat them, but he want to hand them to me instead of just saying “i got some reeses they are in the freezer if you want them” the other just felt so much more romantic and caring. and then he ate one later when i was feeling better, in front of me, cause he could…..

There’s the big things; for my birthday he organised taking me to the New Forest in a luxury hotel, with treatments organised, someone to babysit the kids and all our meals taken care of and organised. Total surprise, phoned my boss and dealt with the time off, packed my case and just took me for a drive. Was totally amazing and when we got there, a bottle of champagne chilling on the table which was the same brand we had on our wedding day.

But the little things; he gets out of bed before me to put the heating on and brings me a cup of tea each morning. He regularly surprises me with flowers, just supermarket ones most often when he’s been out picking things up, or my favourite magazine (which is like £1; I love it because it has puzzles in the back that I can actually do), a dessert for just us to share when our beastly children have gone to bed, a bottle of wine because it had a funny picture on the front, or rather, he annotates the bottle with his own artwork (dicks, he draws dicks usually)… they mean everything and make me feel like he cares about me.

Clowns Have Started 'Clown Lives Matter' Because Everyone Is Threatening To Shoot Them

In case you’ve been living under a rock, there are a bunch of pranksters going around dressed as clowns threatening to kidnap kids and generally trying to frighten people. Just today, a knife-wielding clown wearing big floppy shoes chased a teenager through a New York subway station. And earlier this week, a boy in Arizona claimed that he was cut by another knife-wielding clown

In response, some users on social media have been threatening to shoot any clowns that approach them. 

Unsurprisingly, professional clowns are getting pretty fed up with the pranksters and the potentially deadly response they’re generating. 

To combat the trend, the clown community in Tucson, Arizona, have decided to organize a “Clown Lives Matter” march for next week.

More than 100 clowns are expected to come to the protest according to organizers, while a flyer for the event explains the reasoning behind it.

“This is a peaceful way to show clowns are not psycho killers. We want the public to feel safe, and not be afraid. So come out, bring the family, meet a clown and get a hug!”

Jordan Jones, known professionally as Snuggles the Clown, works in Screamland Farms in Frederick, Maryland. He started the Clown Lives Matter movement to show pranksters that they’re putting the lives of professional clowns in danger. Snuggles told FOX:

“Everyone took this as a joke but it’s really become serious now, and I just want all these teenagers to know that it’s not a game anymore. You’re ruining my job and other actors around the world.”

“They go outside like myself the other day I went outside for a photo shoot and people were driving by taking pictures saying they are going to call the cops because they profiled me as one of the clowns in the woods.

And he says that the recent attacks aren’t just worrying him. 

“You know my family they fear for my life now. My sister, she don’t want me doing this anymore.”

He hopes that marches like those in Tucson will help people take the profession seriously.

“They need a positive role model like myself. Yes, I’m in the clown suit, but at the end of the day I’m a brother, I’m a nephew, I’m an uncle, I have a family.”

“I think it’s really negative. It’s becoming very, very serious and I don’t think a lot of people know how serious it’s becoming.”

But people don’t really know how seriously to take the movement. 

Police forces across the country have condemned the clown sightings, saying that pranksters are wasting valuable resources. 

“There are many other emergencies and calls for service that troopers and other first responders need to get to without being misdirected to a prank,” Connecticut state police said in a statement. 

That statement followed several lockdowns at schools in various states when clowns were spotted nearby. A 13-year-old student in Texas was arrested on terrorism charges after posting a “clown’s hit list” featuring the names of several classmates on social media.
