A Reporter Complained That Ciara Needed to 'Cover Up' During her Performance and People Are Not Having It

Ciara wore a fancy dress to sing the anthem before the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night. It seems like a pretty normal situation but Bonnie Bernstein of Campus Insiders had a problem with Ciara's choice of clothing. She called her out, using the classic "think of the children" as justification for telling her to "cover up". The response to her Tweet has been overwhelmingly negative.

Nazi and Imperial Japanese symbols on public train cars in 2015—no one should be offended about that, right?

Rigggghhhhttttt...

Amazon has asked New York's public transit to remove an ad campaign promoting the company's new alternate history TV series The Man in the High Castle after severe backlash from the public, according to Mashable.

The campaign, meant to show what a train car would look like if the United States lost WWII, used Nazi emblems and Japanese Imperial imagery on seats.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called the ads offensive.

"While these ads technically may be within MTA guidelines, they're irresponsible and offensive to World War II and Holocaust survivors, their families, and countless other New Yorkers," he said in a statement.

"Amazon should take them down."

Open Letter of The Day: Mom With Multiple Multiple Sclerosis Responds to Nasty Note Left on Her Car

News flash: Not everyone who is disabled uses a wheelchair.

Some people don't seem to get this, and they write unnecessary notes to leave on disabled people's vehicles.

Australian mom Justine Van Den Borne, who has Multiple Sclerosis, received a note on her care from an anonymous bully who apparently thought she shouldn't be using a handicapped parking space.

Since the note was anonymous, she took to Facebook and penned an open letter so people understand how such cowardly acts make disabled people feel.

To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre- I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35. Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life. My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn't ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed. On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day. Thank you for ruining that. You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can't walk properly. I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to. A disability doesn't always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be. Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42. Before you ruin another persons day remember you don't know everything and just because you can't see it it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other.

Think before you post notes on cars, people. It's that simple.

Outrage of The Day: A Mom is Super Upset About The Sex Message on Her Kid's Chipotle Cup

And on today's episode of "Everything Offends Me," a woman is really upset at the message on her kid's Chipotle cup.

Did the cup encourage the child to club baby seals? Set fire to a school? Join ISIS?

Nope. It just had two words that made the mom feel uncomfortable: reproductive sex.

OK, maybe out of context these words seem odd on a Chipotle cup. But not if you know anything about the artist that designed the cup.

The artist, Anthony Doerr, describes the cup like this:

Tattoo Earth's 4.5-billion-year timeline onto your arm, shoulder to fingertip, and your upper arm will get nothing but geologic mayhem: meteorites, magma, acid rain. Life won't begin until your bicep, and from there to your wrist it's all single-celled, oceangoing stuff. Reproductive sex won't show up until your wristwatch, and creatures that are finally big enough to see—tubes and fronds and weird Precambrian plant-animals—will crisscross the back of your hand.

Trilobites paddle across your palm; ancient forests grow from your knuckles; dinosaurs wind around the joints at the ends of your fingers. Mammals burrow into your cuticles.

Orangutans, arrowheads, Cleopatra, the names of the stars—they all have to fit on the sliver of fingernail at the end of your longest finger.

So the artwork is an arm showing how the world came to be through evolution. And reproductive sex would only show up around the wrist.

Outrage averted.

Some people just can't take a joke, especially people on Twitter.

Comedian Chris Rock (key word: comedian) tweeted a meme that poked fun at NBA star Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Odom is currently recovering and undergoing procedures for problems linked to his recent drug overdose.

Since the life-threatening incident, Kardashian and Odom have put their divorce on hold.

Here's the comedian's tweet:

A lot of people took the tweet for what it is—a joke. But others were outraged with the timing of the tweet.

Lighten up, Internet. There's probably something else out there you can be upset about.

Hungarian journalist Petra Laszlo has reportedly been fired after a video surfaced on social media of her appearing to trip a fleeing refugee carrying a child.

Freelance journalist Stephan Richter tweeted the video, which shows the incident, in the Hungarian border town of Röszke as dozens of Syrian refugees fled a nearby camp.

Laszlo was also allegedly captured on film kicking another refugee during the same incident.

A Facebook post from Laszlo's employer, N1TV, says that the station fired a cameraman. But the name of the employee was not given.

Reaction to the videos was swift on social media, with many people condemning her alleged actions.

Lauren in Florida paid $200 to go 11 miles to dinner.

Brook in San Diego paid $92 for a 2.7-mile ride on Halloween.

And Gabby from Baltimore woke up on her 26th birthday to discover the 20-min ride she took home the night before cost $362.

First world problems? Sure. More expensive than it ought to be? Probably.

There is renewed, public outrage this week about Uber's hefty surge pricing, specifically concerning Halloween weekend. After being flooded with complaints earlier this year, the Better business bureau gave Uber an "F" grade, according to the New York Times.

And Uber doesn't seem to really care. Remember the CEO's obnoxious "Pro Tips" about using Uber on New Year's Eve?

The company reiterates on their website, in a special Halloween post, that the surge pricing is meant to keep enough drivers on the road during peak hours.

"Surge pricing allows us to remain reliable, even on one of the busiest nights of the year. Our rates will float in real time with fluctuations in supply and demand. Increased rates incentivize more driver partners to get on the roads and ensure those who need a ride won't be left stranded."

So in the meantime, maybe don't take Uber? Or if you must, a new app called SurgeProtector was released this week to help alleviate the problem, as BuzzFeed points out, which shows you the nearest location that isn't currently charging surge pricing.
