A third-party vendor on Walmart's website went described a wig cap with a racial slur; and let's just say they're feeling the full wrath of the internet. To say they kicked the hornet's nest would be a vast understatement.
If you've been on the internet at all over the past couple weeks, you've probably become acquainted with BBQ Becky. She's currently internet famous for her racist call to the police over a group of black men barbequing in an Oakland Park. Clips of the disgruntled woman's call quickly became a viral photoshop meme, and even inspired an SNL parody. When Nashville comedian Tim Northern decided he wanted a piece of the make-fun-of-racists pie, the bar got RAISED. He decided to share these hilarious photos of himself "snitching" on white people. If you like what you see, find more on his personal Facebook page!
Her opening tweet about this really just somehow happening in the 'progressive' year of 2017, astutely sums it all up. Unreal. Let's just say that it doesn't sound like this is headed in any kind of good direction. Wonder how she even ended up exchanging numbers with him in the first place.
Okay, obviously we'll let you guys be the judge of this 'racist' cereal box ad, BUT while we're at it can we take a moment to appreciate how disturbingly bizarre, nightmarish (hellish), the little arcade thing is in this picture. Kellogg's....are you trying to keep the kids entertained with some lighthearted fantastical cartoons while they enjoy your product, or render them speechless with pure terror? Kind of hard to tell.
An oldie of a Tumblr post but still very much relevant and important. When a mom from Utah, posted on her blog about a Japanese-themed party she threw for her daughter, Tumblr somehow got a hold of it and started dragging the mom for encouraging racism. Then commenters started stepping in, one of which who was actually Japanese, decided to set the record straight.
Just two dudes completely roasting the hell out of each other in a distinctively non-PC way. The back and forth here is what makes it. Sorta like this facebook thread that answered funny questions black people had about white people, it's good to see online conversations like this that don't spiral out of control.
Word to the wise: If you’re stuck in the middle seat between two family members, don’t have a total racist, homophobic freak out. Put on your headphones or something.
If only we could have offered that massage to this dude in the hat who went on a total bigotted tear on a United Airlines flight out of Auckland, NZ yesterday.
According to SFist, “An angry man allegedly launched into a racist and homophobic rant after being seated between two other passengers of Indian or Pakistani descent on a San Francisco-bound flight out of Sydney on New Year's Day, leading to a confrontation with a flight attendant and the plane being diverted to Auckland and grounded there overnight.”
Can you imagine that? Being seated between two people who are talking. Ugh. What a nightmare! Well, that’s what this guy thought too. Apparently, his anger escalated from a rant about “Indians to Asians to Muslims to non-whites in general.” Imagine if he had just asked one his row mates to switch seats? After being asked to stop by flight attendant, whom he also had some words for, the pilot re-routed back to Auckland. He was then taken by police, where one might assume he got the middle seat in a cop car.
The whole experience was caught was caught by Neil Kay, who made some new friends because of the experience.
Call me crazy, but it seems like they're having a better time than the dude who had the racist freak out.
For about $20 at Albuquerque Italian restaurant, Paisano's, you can buy yourself some bad judgment.
The owner, Rick Camuglia, insists he wasn't trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement, but just trying to push his "tuna dish with black olive tapenade."
Understandably, Twitter erupted trying to explain where he went wrong:
...but he JUST DOESN'T SEEM TO GET IT.
The shirt and hat are still available for sale here if you don't get it either.
Milo Yiannopoulos is a British journalist for Breitbart. He's known for his trolling tweets and for sending his followers after people he fights with on Twitter. This time, he's gone too far and gotten himself permanently banned from Twitter after sending followers after Leslie Jones.
Let's be clear, he tried to explain it, but that doesn't make it not a really, really dumb idea. This YouTube star is getting a lot of flack for his "social experiment" video that involved, according to him, comparing "radical Islamic terrorism" and "radical Christian terrorism". What does that mean, you ask? Apparently it involves having your friend dress up in a real crappy costume and half-heartedly yelling mispronounced Arabic phrases at people before running away.
Just... just watch it for yourself:
Obviously, most people HATED it. People in the comments of the original video and on Twitter called him out for his terrible judgment.
