Twitter user @kalssseyharmon shared her lonely cookout with her Grandfather, lovingly dubbed "Pawpaw" on Twitter. The internet was suddenly reminded to call their own grandparents so, instead they Tweeted about how sad this Pawpaw situation made them. After all, no one should have to cook 12 burgers just to have one person show up.
Washington D.C. surprised everyone by declaring an unprecedented total shutdown of Metro services for at least 24 hours. This is for everyone's safety, it's an emergency evaluation of some dangerous electrical problems. That still leaves everyone with plenty of extra time to use gifs and memes to comment on the traffic as they make their way to work by car, bus or foot instead. Even some Twitter accounts for city services are getting in on the "fun".
Chris Christie made an appearance next to Donald Trump with such a somber and uncomfortable demeanor that some people started to suspect he'd been kidnapped. The hashtag #FreeChristie was even created. His pitiful expression inspired the internet to rally around him to ask, "You okay there, buddy?" in the only way they know how... memes.
He's been on Ellen and been swatted, and now the kid behind 'Damn Daniel' has had his Twitter account hacked. Whoever took over his account deleted his original viral video with 340,000 retweets, and posted a bunch of uncomfortable racist stuff instead. Some media outlets are reporting that he got hacked by the KKK or by horrible racists, but it's more likely that whoever did this just wanted to make Josh look as bad as possible. What better way to do that than with stuff like this:
Josh has regained access to his account, and it looks like he's hoping Twitter will help him get the video back.
Admit it, unless you're a really big movie fan you probably didn't watch all of the Oscars. That's why we're here to sum up all the most important parts. From Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning that Oscar to memes about Leonardo DiCaprio FINALLY winning that Oscar... we've got it all.
The teen who filmed the 'Damn, Daniel' meme has been swatted, a term that's showing up more often as having a SWAT team called on someone as a prank becomes more and more common. Police in Riverside, California were called to his house to investigate a claim that the teen had shot his mom. When they arrived they discovered that it was "all a hoax".
Thankfully, no one was hurt. The police currently have no leads on who could have made the fake emergency call.
Internet fame isn't all bad though. At least the 'Damn, Daniel' guys got to be on Ellen, right? I mean Daniel got a lifetime supply of shoes. And Josh, the one who got a SWAT team called to his house, got... a surfboard. Cool.
