This guy just launched himself into a world of controversy with his rage-riddled rant.
The Logan Paul-themed sh*storm just gained new fiery life. Yep, you read that one right: after people started watching another one of his vlogs from his time spent in Japan. This one's already cultivated an established reputation as being sickeningly racist. People are PISSED. And with good reason.
Ellen DeGeneres photoshopped herself riding Usain Bolt's back with the caption "This is how I'm running errands from now on." Even though the viral image of Usain Bolt's memorable smile before crossing the finish line has been Photoshopped hundreds of times, some folks on the internet have found the Tweet to be offensive. #Triggered Calm down people, this is Ellen we're talking about... Just keep swimming, I guess.
The internet is widely divided over whether or not this H&M ad should be considered racist or not. Whatever side you land on, at the very LEAST it's a wildly unfortunate oversight by H&M's marketing department.
Artist 'The Weekend' tweeted that he was ending all association with the clothing line after he saw the advertisement. A move that will surely hurt H&M's bottom line.
During an NFL pregame show on WUSA-TV in Washington, DC, Manley employed dumbed-down, reckless judgment on par with a Buffalo Bills tailgater who thought it'd be chill to jump onto a flaming table today.
Manley was speculating on Cam Newton, who might be selected as the first black quarterback ever named NFL MVP. Newton's had 626 rushing yards this season, which is in every sense of the word, 'madness.'
You can pretty much see Manley's co-host bow his head, and die on the spot. Like, wow man.
What century are we living in again?
A newspaper ad in New York is causing outrage because of two words that were included, a harsh reminder of discrimination many people still face when applying for jobs.
'No Haitians' the newspaper ad states, looking for a "laid back nurse."
Berthilde Dufrene, Founder of the Haitian American Nurses Association of Rockland County, addressed the controversy in a Facebook post.
"This is not just a disrespect of the Haitian nurses, but disrespect for the nursing discipline and the entire community that have benefited from the services and care provided by the Haitian nursing professionals," she wrote.
New York Senator David Carlucci has said he will ask local and federal departments to start an investigation into the ad.
The company who posted the ad, Interim HealthCare, has not released a statement. But the corporate Twitter account obviously had better things to talk about...like shoehorns.
Twitter won't take your racism lying down.
It proved as much Oct. 6 after a selfie of a white man with a three-year-old black child, and its very racist comments, went around Facebook.
According to The Huffington Post:
Cayden was at his mother's workplace in Atlanta when a coworker, identified by Atlanta Black Star as Gerod Roth but who uses the online alias of Geris Hilton, snapped an image of himself with the child in the background.
Roth posted the image on Facebook last month, and the comments quickly showed the Internet at its absolute worst. Roth's friends posted racist jokes and hateful commentary, including references to slavery.
"He was feral," Roth wrote in what appears to be his only comment.
Other comments included "I didn't know you were a slave owner", "But massah, I dindu nuffin" and "Send him back dude, those f*ckers are expensive...Like 25 cents a day".
Cayden's mother and grandmother were appalled to see the post from a coworker and wanted to humanize the boy they love. So they started #HisNameIsCayden and Twitter ran with it:
My bro's disability showed me how quick people are to make a joke at the expense of another human. Think before you post. #HisNameIsCayden— Kaitlin Monte (@kaitlinmonte) October 6, 2015
I wish we lived in a world where a mother didn't have to have a conversation about racists to her three year old son. #HisNameIsCayden— Nikki Blake (@hey__nikki) October 6, 2015
Roth's employer was not happy when they discovered the post:
Shout out to Polaris Marketing Group for throwing out the trash. #HisNameIsCayden— Jill (@MrsJTillman) October 5, 2015
A 47-year-old British woman named Jacqueline Williams was arrested and charged with racially aggravated public order offense yesterday, only hours after the British Transportation Police issued a public appeal on YouTube to identify the female passenger who was seen hurling racist remarks at other train passengers in a recently upload video (shown left). It seems that the British law enforcement has taken a liking to crowd-sourced investigations, as yesterday's arrest marked the third case of racial abuse involving a viral transit fight video from this year.
When a video starts off with a toothless old lady on a rocking chair saying, "I'm not racist..." it pretty much opens the floodgates for all sorts of craziness. This half-tirade, half-unintelligible mishmash of words that sound relatively close to English, contains some classy quotes such as "that word we're not allowed to say anymore that I grew up with" (regarding the n-word and her use of it in a public place). The real crime here, however, is how her top looks like a couch cover.
