With Thanksgiving almost here, people on Twitter are eager to share their traditions. And these undoubtedly vary from culture to culture.
The hashtags #ThanksgivingWithBlackFamilies, #ThanksgivingWithWhiteFamilies and #ThanksgivingWithHispanics started trending to share hilarious stories from each group.
Do most of these tweets perpetuate stereotypes? Yep.
But are they hilarious? You bet!
A lot of things came out of the Aug. 6 GOP Debate/Trumptacle. One of them is the hashtag #periodsarenotaninsult.
After FOX News moderator Megyn Kelly asked Donald Trump about the way he talked about woman, Trump took it personally, going on a bit off an assault. It culminated in him saying the following in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon Aug. 7.
"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes," Trump said. "Blood coming out of her wherever."
It has been very difficult for most to think he meant anything other than Kelly was menstruating during the debate and took it out on him.
hey @realDonaldTrump i just got my period— Amber Gordon (@missambear) August 8, 2015
She followed it up by coining a hashtag.
After that, it spread like wildfire. Twitter users tagged Trump about their own menstrual cycles and their thoughts on his campaign in general.
In many ways, and for many different groups of people, Trump's campaign is the gift that keeps on giving.
Remember that time Brian Williams was shot down in a helicopter in Iraq?
Well now neither does Williams, and he is apologizing publicly for the erroneous story which he has been telling for years after being called out by some of the troops who actually were in the attack.
Sorry dude, I don't remember you being on my aircraft, said Lance Reynolds on Facebook. I do remember you walking up about an hour after we had landed to ask me what had happened.
He brought up the story in a news segment Friday about a tribute to a retired soldier at a New York Rangers game.
But crew members told the military news site Stars & Stripes that this never happened, and Williams issued a retraction.
I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago, Williams said on NBC Nightly News Wednesday. I want to apologize.
The soldiers of the 159th Aviation Regiments Chinook which was actually shot down claim Williams was in a helicopter that arrived an hour later.
I don't know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another. Williams said.
He later elaborated and apologized further in a Facebook comment:
You are absolutely right and I was wrong. In fact, I spent much of the weekend thinking I'd gone crazy. I feel terrible about making this mistake, especially since I found my OWN WRITING about the incident from back in '08, and I was indeed on the Chinook behind the bird that took the RPG in the tail housing just above the ramp.
Now people on Twitter have started a hashtag to shame him called #BrianWilliamsMisremembers, in which he claims he was part of some other major historical events.
Jimmy Kimmel has released his latest batch of mean tweets as another all-music edition just in time for the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday.
In this new video, Wiz Khalifa finds out he looks like “a homeless woman,” Drake finds out he looks like Lord Voldemort and Haim takes their hate mail as a compliment.
The bit also includes – among others – Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and 5 Seconds Of Summer.
The perpetually predatory and lyrically questionable Robin Thicke attempted to gain buzz for his new single Paula (totally not a song about trying to force himself back into a dead relationship, BTW) by asking Twitter to send him questions via the #AskThicke hashtag. Unsurprisingly, people used the hashtag to lob any and all number of pot shots at the pop crooner. Like these:
But really, let's get to the heart of the matter:
That would be Dappy, showing off his hashtag tattoo (hashtat?) in a selfie he recently shared. He picked up the ink to be "trending forever," though nothing Dappy-related has popped up on Twitter's list of hot topics.
The best part? Dappy is best known for his song "No Regrets." We'll see how that turns out.
#nomakeupselfie had humble beginnings, as a gesture of support from one female author to another about criticisms regarding her looks. However, after others began taking part and adding "#breastcancerawareness" and other tags, the donations began pouring in to Cancer Research UK. In just over two days, the organization has raised over £2 million, with more to come. Check out a video about the phenomenon here:
