Mayte Lara graduated at the top of her class, as you can tell by her Tweet, but letting the world know that she was in the US illegally was probably not the smartest idea. Some people have voiced their support for Mayte, and say that she is a good example of a hardworking person who is working to better themselves, unlike the stereotypes of undocumented immigrants that people like Donald Trump have been spouting in the current election season. That didn't stop the fact that she got so much backlash on Twitter that she had to close her account. Some of the Tweets looked like this terrible Donald Trump meme:

Some people even reported her to the government.

Graeme Whiting, the principal of a British private school suggested that fantasy books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones (to name a few) can damage the subconscious of a child and cause mental illness. In this longer than necessary blog post he talks about how by the age of 30 he had read all the books he wanted to and that children don't have "thinking brains" until at least the age of 14.  

He prefers that kids stick to the classics that aren't "sensationalized" with tales of magic or anything interesting. 

This has led many critics to ask several questions such as, "Does he seriously think Game of Thrones is for kids?" and "What kind of boring Shakespeare plays is he reading?"

If there's one thing we've learned, it's that heads are stronger than golf clubs. Golfer Zac Blair made a mistake while putting and hit his golf club on his head in frustration (similar to the guy in the above gif that Blair later posted in a Tweet about the situation).  

Unfortunately, a bent club is a "non-conforming" club and that meant that he was disqualified.

Rapper 50 Cent followed this poor guy around at his work and hassled him because he was "high off something".   The victim of this public shaming was identified on Instagram by a former schoolmate as Andrew Farrell. According to that Instagram user, @rustystone9, Farrell was not high, he has a disability:

Now 50 Cent is in hot water for being such a jerk.  According to Unilad, Farrell has mentioned that he might even be taking 50 Cent to court.

This manager can be heard saying some unkind words to a couple who apparently just wanted some sauce. Now he's been fired for his unprofessional conduct.

People in LA couldn't stop watching an insane car chase where suspects in a burglary led police through the city.



Eventually, the suspects gave up and surrendered to police but not before snapping a few selfies. Onlookers formed a crowd where they stopped to talk to friends and wait for police to catch up and some of them just had to take a picture or two.

George Mason University's Law School has recently been renamed "the Antonin Scalia School of Law" in honor of the late Supreme Court justice.  Soon they'll be renaming it again because someone didn't think to check what the acronym of that new name spelled. And that acronym is....

Following several mocking Tweets, the new name will be "the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University". Which is a shame because, according to his opponents, that name isn't nearly as representative of the man it was named for.
