Donald Trump was speaking in Buffalo, New York when he referenced September 11, 2001, as you do when you are an American politician. Instead of saying "9/11" though, he accidentally said "7-11". If you thought the internet was just going to let that one go, you were wrong.
This woman went to work as a server and had President George W. Bush and his wife as customers. Apparently, they were pretty nice and left a "hella" tip. When she shared the picture they took together she referenced the conspiracy theory that "Bush did 9/11" as a joke.
At first it was funny, but she got more attention than she planned on getting.
The Tweet also got a lot of hate. Eventually it became necessary to let people know that she wasn't serious.
Come on, Internet, can't you guys take a joke?
Hey, remember that sad Pawpaw who ate a lonely burger when only one of his grandkids came to dinner? Of course you do, because he later promised to host a cookout for everyone.
Well, he did! And it worked out.
Well, except that his grandkids failed him once again:
A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme.

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:
What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”
“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.
“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”
Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.
But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:
"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."
You remember Sad Pawpaw, the meme that made everyone go call their grandparents? Well, now a different grandkid has Tweeted an update. Now everyone is invited to Pawpaw's cookout!
Apparently the plan is to raise money to send all those grandkids to school, even the ones who didn't come to dinner.
