You may remember the belligerent woman who attacked an Uber driver while trying to get a ride home in the wrong car. After the incident, Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon was put on leave during an investigation at her work and publicly shamed on social media.

She also says that in addition to hateful comments, she's received threatening personal messages and that her family's address has been leaked.  

Now she's done the only thing she could think of to pacify the unforgiving public which is to go on national television and apologize.

Caroline Macrory started a trend by leaving gifts on the doorstep of someone who needed them and running away. She called this the Doorstep Challenge and this act of kindness has really caught on. 

Even a few local businesses have joined in.

Macrory's goal is bringing people together to make life a little easier. She told Mashable, "Basically the concept of the ‘doorstep challenge’ is to reach out to those in our community who might be struggling at this time of year for one reason or another and spread a little Christmas cheer."

This Facebook post advertised free cell doors for pickup and became a funny message to remind citizens out there to stay on the right side of the law. This is the whole post:



They didn't stop there though, it looks like Sergeant Colin Taylor stuck around to answer a few questions as well:

WTF of The Day: This Man Was Fired For 'Liking' a Facebook Picture

A Facebook 'like' can now get you fired.

Oh, what an exciting world we live in!

Troy Garrod, a 27-year-old from England, started working at Bertrams Books back in 2011.

He saw his coworker upload a photo in October on Facebook of a sweater with five wolves on it. Doing what most people do while scrolling through his Newsfeed, Garrod hit the 'like' button (along with 70 other people.)

But a few days later he received a text from his boss saying he had been fired for "bullying."

"I didn't know what the photo meant but everyone else who worked there was liking it so I just joined in," he told Metro.

Apparently the caption on the photo was making fun of the sweater, which another coworker owned. It read:

'OMG I'm f**king crying… I'm sure there's a wolf fleece appreciation page pahahaha.'

The original uploader is also believed to have been suspended.

Geez, you think someone wearing a sweet wolf sweater like that would have a better sense of humor.

One "social media celebrity" is quitting social media because she says she had become consumed.

18-year-old Australian model and vegan YouTuber Essena O'Neill is quitting social media and launching a campaign to help others who want to make the change themselves.

This might seem trivial, but for someone who made thousands of dollars through social media—her career is now in jeopardy.

And she had a lot of followers:

Essena O'Neill, from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, had over 574,000 Instagram followers, more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 60,000 dedicated Snapchat contacts when she decided to give up her life as a 'social media celebrity'.

In her final YouTube video, O'Neil describes why she is quitting social media.

"I put my value in numbers, not real life people, moments or my natural passions of art, writing...Posting on Instagram consumed me," she wrote.

"We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love. I have never felt so free."

She said she is leaving her Instagram and YouTube accounts up as documentation of her journey. She even started changing Instagram captions to reveal the truth about sponsored posts and highly edited photos.

Instead of using popular social media platforms, O'Neill has set up a website and blog, letsbegamechangers.com, where she will continue to interact with fans and share her content.

Her first challenge to users? Go social media free for one week.

Could you do it?
