Sometimes when browsing my way through the internet I come across something that just makes me utter 'ohgodwhy' uncontrollably. Well, this list is 41 of those things.
There are people in this world that just don't need to be on social media, who should restrain themselves to the far reaches of the internet or just refrain from going online at all.
These facebook FAIL's are guaranteed to make your whole body cringe.
Ruth Clemens opened up the Facebook floodgates after posting a rant on H&M's page about her struggle to squeeze into a pair of jeans and medium top.
Once Ruth posted her grievance, it seemed that the entire internet decided to join in and take advantage of the opportunity to complain about, well, anything.
H&M did their best ease the tension with generic copy/pasted responses, but the onslaught of complaints was just too much.
It’s one thing to get a little annoyed at anyone posting too many baby pictures on Facebook, and then there’s this.
‘700 Club’ host Pat Robertson was answering some viewer mail on Monday, and he got one from a woman who wanted to know if it was safe for her daughter to post a picture of her unborn child online.
She wanted to know if this would have any harm, spiritually.
And then Roberston went all “American Horror Story” on us.
“There are demons and there are evil people in the world,” he said. “And you post a picture like that, and some cultist gets a hold of it or a coven and they begin muttering curses against an unborn child.”
As a reminder, this is the same man who thinks gays with AIDS wear rings to purposely cut and infect people, joked that man should move to Saudi Arabia to beat his wife and called the 2010 earthquake in Haiti a “blessing in disguise.”
A teenage girl with the Twitter handle “@Cellla_” did not want to go to work at her new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas last week, so she Tweeted about it.
And now she doesn’t have to go, because she was fired.
Her would-be boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet (thanks to one his employees), and he let her know himself that she didn’t have to bother showing up.
It seems like Robert is done with Twitter for while after this 15 seconds of fame. He hadn’t used his account since 2009, and he has since deleted all the tweets related to her firing.
“Made my point today,” he wrote. “I’ll check in again in 6 years.”
And Cella is seeing a lot of mixed reactions on her Twitter account now as the story spreads, but she just finds the whole thing so LOL.
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.
Fail or Win?
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office in Florida bought some fancy new rugs recently, but they had to remove them because of a little spelling mistake.
Within the crest the text reads "In Dog We Trust" instead of "In God We Trust."
The mistake went unnoticed for several weeks before they realized it.
Since news of the photo spread online people have taken to the sheriff's office Facebook page asking that they auction it off and donate the money to an animal charity or place it in the K9 unit instead.
Or they could just appoint this guy as the new sheriff.
