A Brasilian campaign called "Virtual Racism, Real Consequences" has placed Billboards in the home towns of racist internet denizens featuring their hurtful posts alongside a blurred out image and username of the offender. The project used Facebook's geo-tagging function to locate the commenters.  

The organizers of the project don't want to identify anyone or give trolls more attention which is why the identifying information is blurred out. They hope that people who made these comments will come across their own words in a very public venue and realize the impact of their comments has more reach than the semi-anonymty of the internet. 

They have also created a video to better explain their efforts :

If you're the kind of person who impulse buys a good deal on Black Friday without really seeing what you're getting, you may have just bought a whole lot of nothing from Cards Against Humanity. Then again, you were probably also one of the more than 30,000 people who bought actual poop from them last Black Friday.

Cards Against Humanity, the troll kings of Black Friday, are offering a special $5 deal on absolutely nothing! As in, you give them five dollars and get nothing back. Apparently they've also closed real sales of their product today, which has at least one former-fan pretty furious:

Something tells me that if this stunt was enough to turn this guy off of CAH, he probably wouldn't have enjoyed the game to begin with.

Hoax of The Day: 'Phuc Dat Bich' Just Trolled The Entire Internet

Phuc Dat Bich is a phucing liar.

The man who claimed Facebook was deleting his profile every time he updated it to his unfortunate-sounding name now tells Guardian Australia he made the whole thing up.

His real name is Tin Lee, a 23 year old living in Melbourne.

The trickster fooled the people of the Internet and countless publications (including Cheezburger) with a Facebook post lamenting his name.

He had this to say about his hoax in a Facebook post, which now seems to have been deleted:

"What started as a joke between friends, became a prank that made a fool out of the media and brought out the best in the people who reached out to me. It didn't bring out the anger and darkness that we often see on the internet, but it brought a levity and humanity in a time we need it most.

"Out of this ordeal I've concluded not to trust the credibility of the media, it's twisted by the hungry journalists who mask the truth ... It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease."

What a Bich.

A stranger texting this guy and his beard gets the best responses.

He ain't never been called Wendy before. But surely people compliment his beard.

Edwin Wheeler kept getting texts from a wrong number, so he answered them politely with proof that he was not some lady named Wendy.

Then, he took screenshots and put the pictures on Imgur like a true gentleman.

"Maybe I should just accept my life as the bearded Wendy," he said.

We know the truth though. She kept 'accidentally' texting him just so she could keep getting pics of that sweet, sweet beard.

We would have done the same.

The mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, caused an uproar in April after installing a giant, Transformer-like robot named “Otorobot” in the city.

He was being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects for “wasting” taxpayer dollars on the statue, which he claimed was to promote a new theme park called AnkaPark.

Well all the robot-haters have won the battle… but not the war.

The robot was finally removed this week, and it was replaced with a giant, menacing Tyrannosaurus Rex.

It’s 3 meters high and 10 meters long, according to Today’s Zaman.

The mayor stated that he would be replacing the robot with a dinosaur back on April 16, and he asked people on Twitter to vote on which one it should be. According to Hurriyet Daily News, #7 won the poll, which appears to be an Apatosauarus/Brontosaurus(?). But for some reason they ultimately went with the T-Rex.

This story just keeps gets weirder. What’s next, a giant alien or zombie?

Here we go again.

Brian Klawiter, the owner of Dieseltec auto repair shop in Grandville, MI declared on the business’Facebook page Tuesday that they will not serve gay people because “homosexuality is wrong, period.”

From the post:

Enough is enough. Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun… That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist. Too many of us say nothing. Well, freedom of speech isn’t just for Liberals, THEY are the ones that need to learn to “co-exist”, THEY are the ones who need to WORK to be “equal”

So if you’re looking for a lube job, gays, look elsewhere, because Mr. Klawiter is not going to service you. Even if you have one of these sexy problems listed on his website.

Is your Duramax smoking? Does your Powerstroke not start when it’s hot? How about your Cummins, is it putting down the power it could be?

In fact, if you are gay and bring your car in for repairs, he jokes that he will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.”

It might sound like a threat, but he later clarified his comments.

The bolt and nut thing was a reference to physiology, bolt penis and nut v@gina. I DID NOT threaten to purposely put a vehicle together wrong to harm someone.

WARNING gay bolt pr0n below.

While gays are not welcome, he says that guns are encouraged. He is offering a special deal to anyone who brings a firearm into his shop.

And as with the Memories Pizza debacle, the company’s Yelp page has already been inundated with negative reviews and humorous comments.

But don’t think about raising hundreds of thousands of dollars on a GoFundMe page for the poor guy, because he won’t take it.

“I also am not asking for anyone to do the gofundme postings,” he wrote. “We are a successful business and are blessed to be able to feed our families. If there is any money raised it will be redistributed to people with greater needs than ours.”

Here are some highlights from Yelp so far.

A writer named Ijeoma Oluo has shared an interesting Twitter conversation she had with a 14-year-old, racist troll on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the result is truly inspiring.

"You guys I'm a mom," she wrote on Facebook. "You think I'm going to let some 14 year old outlast me? I got love for days."

Warning: there are a lot of racial slurs and other awful stuff in here, but make sure to read all the way through to the end.
