The Internet Gods have spoken: we have been overdue for another stupid social media privacy hoax. This time around, boomers and the technologically ignorant are concerned about their already non-existent privacy on image-sharing site Instagram.The post claims that deleted photos and messages will be made public unless the "memo" is shared. The message is laughable, but the masses are pretty damn gullible where privacy is concerned. To make matters worse, celebrities and politicians such as Rick Perry (The US Secretary of Energy...) and Usher have been sharing the bogus spam as well. Instagram and Twitter users with a bit more of their wits about them have been using this opportunity to roast their share-happy peers via memes and exasperated tweets - and the results are pretty fricken' funny.
Calling all future dads! Not planning to have kids ever? That's okay, you can still embody the spirit of a dad without ever having the offspring. These memes will get you started on your dad journey!

Soulja Boy must love hamburgers because this guy’s all about beef.
After receiving our coveted Beef of the Day last month, when he famously told movie star and robot-fighting man Shia LaBeouf to stay out of Atlanta, he’s at it again.
This time Soulja has turned his sights on R&B singer and domestic abuser Chris Brown, and he’s telling the world.
Apparently, Chris Brown didn’t like Soulja Boy liking a picture of Karrueche Tran, Brown’s ex, on Instagram. So, according to Soulja Boy, Brown called him up on FaceTime, and the next thing you know, Soulja Boy is telling the whole NSFW story to Instagram. Again, NSFW.

So it looks like Soulja Boy isn’t making any new friends this new year and is instead publicly threatening people.
This is old news to Twitter, who seems to be getting kind of tired of Soulja Boy’s many beefs. Looks like a lot of people made the same New Year’s resolution: Go vegetarian.
Everyone in America knows that laptops grow on trees, and there’s no greater proof of this than the TSA’s massive collection of laptops.
The TSA tweeted last week that about 70 laptops — mostly expensive MacBooks by the looks of it — that were left behind at security. Whatever, these people will just walk over to the magic laptop tree and grab a new laptop.
People are regularly doing things like that. Mashable reports, “In a 2014 story, Capital Public Radio in Sacramento, California, reported that roughly 20,000 items, each priced at $500 or more, were left at checkpoints around the country. Those items eventually get sent to TSA's Virginia headquarters, while less valuable objects make their way to re-sale shops.”
If you’re one of the few people who cannot just walk over to the laptop tree and pick a new laptop, there are steps you can take. In addition to sending a message to the TSA on Twitter at or Facebook, you can call their Lost & Found. Just in case you forgot your loaded gun or fingernail thingy.
Everyone agrees: The most important part of the wedding is the hashtag.
You could have the right dress, cake, and DJ, but if your hashtag fails to inspire and delight your guests, guess what, no one had a good time. The hashtag lives on long after the music ends and leaves an indelible print on your pictures. It’s the first thing that guests ask for and the last thing they forget.
So why would you leave the hashtag up to the amateurs?
Gunning for the title of most millennial job of 2016, Marielle Wakim, a Los Angeles-based magazine editor, is offering personalized wedding for a low, low price. “Happily Ever #Hashtagged,” Wakim’s business offers hashtags, charging $40 for one and $115 for three options. She’s also willing to tag bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Recently, Wakim’s wedding hashtags were featured on Good Morning America, where John Legend didn’t seem too impressed by them. Although, we’re in agreement, the one she wrote for George and Amal Clooney, “AmalYourGeorge,” was pretty solid.
For more on Wakim, check out her interview in Mashable or simply call her because you don’t want your special day to be ruined, do you?

Donald Trump has said a lot of things this election season, but there’s one thing none of us should stand for: Lying about our professional athletes and supermodels. Professional athletes and supermodels are the backbone of this country. They are who we aspire to be, and who we bow down before, hanging our heads in shame.
This makes Tom Brady’s supposed endorsement of Donald Trump all the more disturbing.
The New York Post reports that Donald Trump said to a rally on Monda that he spoke to Brady and recieved his vote. Trump recounted their conversation:
“Great guy, great friend of mine — great, great champion. Unbelievable winner. He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.
And I said, ‘So Tom. You voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight at this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’ He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.’”
However, in the hours that passed, word finally got to Tom Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen. On Instagram, a fan put it bluntly, asking “Gisele I heard you and Tom were backing Trump! Is that true??”
Giesle’s reply was brief: “NO!”
And there you have it, folks. This election season has brought out a lot in all of us. We struggle as a nation to bridge great divides between us and find our place in this crazy, mixed-up world. It’s hard enough, but at least we can rely on our supermodels and professional athletes to be there for us, speak for themselves, and never get lost in the fray.
And also this:
Wanting him to get more punishment...
Tying it into Black Lives Matter
...and reminding Lochte to genuinely apologize for LYING, which he still hasn't done yet:
Frankly, after all of this, I'm just left wondering where I can buy one of these t-shirts.... anyone?
In a pretty-much universally offensive Photoshop FAIL, Vogue Brazil decided to superimpose disabilities on their own able-bodied models in a promotion for the Paralymics instead of using ACTUAL Paralympians.
The Paralympians were okay with it...
...but we're still not. We'd rather see more barrier-breaking pics of these AMAZING athletes:

Snoop Dogg, the world's most chill weed advocate, is taking on the NFL's desire to have access to guns in a new Instagram video.
Snoop takes issue with the NFL wanting to give football players access to guns but not access to weed. He successfully argues that football is already a violent profession which lends itself to perpetuating a violent environment amongst the players, and that weed would be a panacea to this problem of violence and allow the players some respite from their aggressive environment.
He even reached out the NFL to offer his services as an advocate to make this change happen:
Do it, Snoop.
Turn up your man-crushes folks, because Chris Pratt has once again won our hearts by giving us commentary from his recent InStyle Magazine shoot.
He took to Instagram and relayed hilarious anecdotes for all of his fans to see:
The whole hilarious series culminated in this awesomeness:
We heart you, Chris Pratt!
Harley Quinn Smith, star of Yoga Hosers and daughter of notable nerd Kevin Smith, got targeted by an online bully on Instagram with a Matrix-fetish:
...but Kevin didn't sit for anyone bullying his daughter and chose to use the moment to offer some real life advice for the internet...
Well... i'm inspired!
Well done, Mr. Smith, well done.
