In what is becoming a regular thing these days, yet another celebrity in the midst of controversy has reached out to people on Twitter, and yet again it has backfired.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has been under fire for promoting suspicious weight loss products on his show, initiated an online Q&A on Tuesday for people to submit their medical questions.

Instead, he was inundated with Tweets basically calling him a snake oil salesman and a quack.

Here's a few notable examples, but you can read them all on the hashtag: #OzsInbox.

The Internet Is Taking Dog Selfies To Help A Manchester Dog Home Ravaged By Arson

People are taking to social media after a fire at the Manchester Dogs' Home in England took the lives of more than 50 dogs.

The campaign started when one person took a selfie with his dog along with his donation to the home and asked people to pass it on. The goodwill of people has been incredible and so far more than £600,000 has been raised – obliterating the original £5,000 target.

Those donating have been posting their #dogselfie to help raise awareness and more money. You can join the cause at the Just Giving page through Facebook.
