Guy Learns The Hard Way Why You Should Never Body Shame A Woman On Twitter

Leyton Mokgerepi probably thought he was creating a relatable meme when he tweeted this:

What ended up happening, however, was the complete opposite. People immediately ostracized him online for posting a fat joke at another woman’s expense. A woman, who, actually looks pretty darn good in her photo, if you ask me. And most importantly, of course, is that women don’t have to meet any one standard of beauty, and don’t exist just for other people to find them attractive.

Something that other Twitter users were quick to point out as well.

And as it turns out, because the internet is a place full of cats and karma, and in this case, boatloads of karma, the woman in the photo Leyton tried shaming came out, on the record, that she in fact doesn’t like him.

He tried to save face after her post by calling her, “Girlfriend Goals.”

But it was clear for all to see it was a feeble attempt, so Twitter reminded him of how badly he was dragged.

Her tweet even caught the attention of some celebs.

At the end of it all, @Thickleeyonce was floored by the positive response people had for her after Leyton’s initial attempt to shame her.

So the next time you try to body shame someone online, remember: you might just get dragged.

Woman Dyes Her Face Pink With 'Washable' Paint And The Internet Wasn't Kind

If you plan on putting paint anywhere near your skin, make sure it’s body paint. Some paint may say that it washes off of skin, but they’re usually talking about small amounts of paint you accidentally get on your arm. Poster paint probably isn’t going to wash off easily, as Twitter user Leah recently discovered… 

People were relentless in their mocking.

This Woman With A Missing Limb Wrote The Best Tinder Bio Ever

The internet came across the best Tinder bio possibly ever this week, and, well—see for yourself. It was created by a woman who is missing one arm.

Of course, everyone fell in love with her.

But the real fun happened when Lauren—the creator of the profile—discovered that her Tinder profile had gone viral.

“I got home pretty drunk, and I don’t remember typing it up really,” she told BuzzFeed in an interview. “I just woke up to someone DM’ing me a Reddit post asking if it was me, and I was like damn, I guess it is.”

Lauren lost her arm in a moped accident, she told BuzzFeed, and has used social media to help cope with her disability. 

“For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes,” said Lauren. “But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.”

She’s basically out of everyone’s league.

Woman Puts Trump's Qualifications Into His Points-Based Immigration System—It Didn't Go Well

It’s no secret that Donald Trump has been keen on cracking down on immigration since the day he stepped into office.

So when Trump endorsed a bill that would cut down legal immigration by half earlier this week, it didn’t come as much of a surprise.

The bill, called the RAISE Act, would institute a skills-based point system for entry, rewarding educated, English-speaking immigrants with high-salary job offers. The measure would also eliminate diversity visa lotteries, and maintains that immigrants who enter the country would be ineligible for welfare for a certain amount of time. 

The new rules clearly favor certain immigrants over others. Given the rigorousness of the standards proposed, Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampell wondered what would happen if the tables were turned.

Rampell’s assessment, which is, of course, highly speculative, doesn’t give Trump much of a chance. 

In fact, according to Rampell, Trump would score a zero in several categories, including “Age,” “Record of extraordinary achievement,”  “English-language ability,” and “High-paying job offer,” based on the sometimes ambiguous, sometimes absurdly-specific language of the bill. 

Trump’s final score: 18. 

The minimum score to even be considered: 30.

Some could argue that Trump would score in the top 10% of the English-language test, which would garner him the 12 points needed to meet the threshold, but there would most likely be applicants who would score well over the 30 points, potentially knocking Trump off the list. 

Twitter wasn’t too shocked by the results:

Woman Writes Hilarious Facebook Post Trying To Get Rid Of 'Jerk' Rooster

Animals are just like humans. For every loving one, there’s a jerk. A few months back, an animal shelter in Melbourne, Australia, went viral when they wrote a brutally honest personal ad for Mr. Biggles, a cat they described as “an utter utter utter bastard.”

And now, Denell McCaul from Clarksville, Michigan, has gone viral doing the same thing to get rid of her “jerk” rooster. McCaul, who owns several chickens, took to Facebook to try and get rid of the rooster, and her hilarious Facebook post has since gone viral. 

The post, which has been shared over 65,000 times and attracted over 30,000 comments, doesn’t seem to have found any potential homes from the rooster just yet, but that’s probably because people are too busy laughing.

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.

This Woman Is Hilariously Recreating Instagram Model Bikini Pics This Summer

Celeste Barber is a comedian who has made a name for herself simply by recreating all the famous Instagram pics that models, actresses, and musicians are always posting showing off their fabulous life and fit bods. With just a one pic, Barber deflates all their pretensions:

Though she’s been virally famous for a while, it is worth checking in with Barber on a seasonal basis. She keeps up with what’s trendy on Insta, and since right now is bathing suit season, she’s letting it all hang out. Nothing like seeing a million pool and boat posts spoofed over and over and over again to make you realize that Instagram models are kind of in a rut:

And here are a bunch of her latest non-bikini recreations, just for fun:

That’s the celebration of summer I want to see! Though did she go too far with this spoof of Beyoncé’s holy twins?

28-Year-Old Woman With No Political Experience Now Among Top Paid Trump Staffers

You’ve probably never heard of Hope Hicks. She’s only 28 years old, has no political experience whatsoever, and got a degree in English from Southern Methodist University. Also, she is among the highest paid aides to Donald Trump, serving as Assistant to the President and Director of Strategic Communications in the White House.

GIPHY

Hicks fell into her current position through a job at the Trump organization before the campaign. Since becoming a part of President Trump’s team, she has weathered multiple staff changes, always asserting herself as a valuable member of Trump’s inner circle – all without making a name for herself as one of the jostling in-fighters that people picture within the current administration. Trump says Hicks has been with him “from the beginning.”

GIPHY

Hicks was a successful teen model, posing for Ralph Lauren as well as the cover of “It Girl,” a Gossip Girl spin-off.

Amazon

GIPHY

In 2012, while working for public relations firm Hiltzik Strategies, Hicks first encountered Ivanka Trump while handling her fashion line. In 2014, Ivanka hired Hicks to work for the Trump Organization.

Hicks met Donald Trump through her work at the organization and quickly “earned his trust,” Ivanka told The New York Times in a 2016 profile.

GIPHY

In January 2015, Trump called Hicks to his office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower and told her she was joining his presidential campaign. She later said he told her:

I think it’s ‘the year of the outsider.’ It helps to have people with outsider perspective.

Hicks is the longest-lasting campaign staffer of Trump’s inner circle, staying on even when Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s first campaign manager, was fired.

In June, the White House released salary info for 377 top staffers.  Hicks is paid the maximum amount that any of Trump’s aides receive:  $ 179,700.

GIPHY

Hicks is paid the same amount as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, press secretary Sean Spicer, senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, policy adviser Stephen Miller, and communications official Omarosa Manigault.

Some of Hick’s family members are concerned that she’s so closely tied to a President whose policies are so unpopular with a significant number of Americans, but are confident that she’ll emerge “unscathed.”

GIPHY

Though reporters have complained that Hicks is often “unreachable” and “[denies] access to the candidate,” many also recognize that there is no one who better understands the mercurial moods of Donald Trump. As the 45th presidency continues, let’s hope she’s nearby to stop him from tweeting anything that might throw the nation into a panic!

Woman Kicked Out Of Mall For Wearing 'Inappropriate' Tank Top In Middle Of A Heatwave

We’re in the middle of a heatwave, so when Hannah Pewee had to visit the Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she dressed for the weather. But the 20-year-old student says that she was kicked out of the mall on Saturday after another shopper complained about her outfit. 

What was she wearing? We highly suggest that you avert your eyes because yes, she was wearing a Finding Nemo tank top and denim shorts. Shortly after the incident, Pewee took to Facebook to share her side of events. 

In a caption alongside the photo, Pewee wrote:

“As many of you know, it is NINETY degrees outside today in West Michigan. Aka, really hot. So, of course, I decided to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top. But apparently, how I was dressed (see photo below) was too slutty for the public, as I was kicked out of the Woodland Mall today.”  

She went on to claim that a security guard asked her to leave after another shopper complained:

“Yup. Apparently some anonymous person reported me to MALL SECURITY for inappropriate dress and I was kicked out.”

“Never mind that within a one foot radius there were plenty of girls dressed just like me, since it’s NINETY degrees outside. I am so angry right now I’m shaking. I felt so embarrassed I almost cried. All because a stranger didn’t like how I dressed.” 

Pewee slammed the mall’s decision in the post which has since received over 8,000 shares. 

“The Woodland Mall should be ashamed of themselves, as well as that anonymous complainer. It’s my body, and it’s hot outside! I’m not going to show up in jeans and a sweater, sorry. Don’t like it? Look away! I was out having a fun time with my sister and next thing I know, I’m out on the street. Slut-shaming how girls are dressed is deplorable and outdated, and it needs to stop.”

According to a second Facebook post posted by Pewee, a representative of the mall quickly contacted her to apologize after the post went viral.

The Woodland Mall’s Facebook page also responded to a comment on Pewee’s post, adding:

“Hi Jessica, we have apologized to Hannah and we apologize to our community. It is never our intention to shame or embarrass anyone. We’re going to make sure that everyone on our team is aware of how to handle situations like this in the future. We dropped the ball on this one.”

It’s far too hot for this nonsense.

This Woman Just Blasted H&M For Their Absurd Clothing Sizes, And Others Can Relate

Lowri Byrne of the United Kingdom went in to an H&M to buy clothing in May. What she came out with was viral celebrity.

The problem that she had in the changing rooms is apparently one that is rather common, regardless of where you come from. The issue? H&M’s clothing sizes.

Your humble writer gave up on H&M many, many years ago because the sizes he actually fit in made him feel like an overweight monster. Lowri had a similar experience.

Lowri posted a photo of the outfit in question, and a scathing and sarcastic message alongside of it, directly to H&M’s Facebook page.

“Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous! I’m a size 12 and small busted and today in a H&M store I had to ask if this dress came in a size 18 (it didn’t…) 

The dress I have on in these photos is a size 16, and I could barely breathe. Not only was this annoying because I wanted to buy this dress, but so many women take what size dress they buy to heart. If I was one of these girls (thankfully I’m not) requesting a size 18 dress would seriously devastate me!

When I asked if this dress came in a 18 the store assistant said “ahh yeah you have to go up a couple of sizes with these”. A couple?!? going up 3-4 sizes surely should make you realise that you need to seriously sort out sizing!!!”

The post went promptly viral, gathering almost 4,000 reactions, 355 shares, and 586 comments. Mostly all of them were in favor, and in agreement.

H&M, to their credit, did issue the following official statement:

“H&M hugely values all customer feedback. It is only ever our intention to design and make clothes that make our customers feel good about themselves, any other outcome is neither intended nor desired. H&M’s sizes are global and the sizes offered in the U.K. are the same in all the 66 markets in which we operate in and online. 

As there is no global mandatory sizing standard, sizes will differ between brands and different markets. Our dedicated, in-house sizing department works according to an average of the sizes and measurements suggested by the markets we operate in. H&M sizes are continually reviewed by our in-house sizing department.”

Will H&M ever catch up with the rest of the world and provide sizing that doesn’t make people feel gross? We won’t hold our breath… unless we’re trying to fit into a pair of their jeans.
