These lying liar faces were called out for their shitty attempts to spread dishonesty into the world. The internet is already confusing enough without tons of people trying to further their own agendas by telling lies left and right. Thankfully there's a fair amount of truth-defending champions around, ready to reverse image search the crap out of any liars that are trying to weave their web of deceit.
If you're a social media user of any kind, by now you are well acquainted with the #10YearChallenge. The meme involves users posting contrasting photos from 2009 and 2019 to highlight how much they have changed. The meme has gone on to be used ironically, and now it's being used to create climate change awareness.
Instead of posting impressive glow-ups or dank memes, some users, politicians, and organizations have taken to Twitter and Facebook to highlight the rapid destruction of our environment. Emaciated polar bears and melted glaciers make our versions of the challenge seem more shallow and narcissistic than they already did. We encourage everyone to get involved in this movement and help protect the world for ourselves and future generations.
Thank you, Literary Twitter for starting our new favorite hashtag challenge. The fun stems from the #OwnVoices hashtag, which addresses the voices of marginalized communities. The hashtag naturally had its critcs; among them was a male author that insisted he was living proof that men are capable of penning realistic female characters. After Gwen C. Katz shared some super-cringey passages of his proof, the challenge was born.
Women on Twitter quickly began parodying the passages, describing their most coveted features in hilarious and painfully flowery fashion. Many of these tweets show greater writing chops than we've seen in some books. While the fetishization of female characters is certainly getting old, we could read these farcical tweets all day.
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.
