$99M wine fraud, Shein the mafioso & Blackstone's epic holiday cringe 👀🍿🧃
This week has me literally hard cringing over the insanely bad Blackstone holiday video (also included below because OMG). And speaking of holidays, no newsletter next week so I’ll see you all in the New Year!
“Top Fashion Influencer Fined Over $1M for Misleading Christmas Cake Ad”- People are so gross.
They say Web3 is like the Wild West, and thieves prove that correct:
“Senate staffer alleged by conservative outlets to have had s3x in a hearing room is no longer employed”- I will never understand the thought process (was there one?) on doing things like this with your career on the line.
“NJ man turns fake Walmart 'party' Facebook post into genuine holiday toy drive”- Not scandalous, but love that FB invites can still rack up 21k RSVPs.
“Elon Musk’s Big Lie About Tesla Is Finally Exposed”- A good explanation for why none of my engineering friends would get a Tesla.
“Shein sued by rival Temu for alleged ‘mafia-style intimidation’”- Add
”holding people hostage” to Shein’s poor business practices.
“‘How Dare People Exist’: Influencer Gets Humbled For Shading Strangers In Her Disney Pics”- What a bizarre reality to live in where this feels like a legitimate complaint.
“Smells like trouble: Why perfume influencer Jeremy Fragrance has created a stink with German firms”- Given his thing of screaming “power,” this doesn’t feel entirely shocking.
“‘The Masked Singer’ Reveals Rock God Embroiled in Ugly Lawsuit”- I feel like I’m having a stroke seeing anything relating to the Masked Singer.
“Loose steer spotted on train tracks near Newark Penn Station captured safely”- More like “Steer clear of the closing doors,” amirite?
“British man pleads not guilty in alleged $99 million wine fraud conspiracy”- If wine drama is up your alley, highly recommend reading The Billionaire’s Vinegar- The Mystery of the World's Most Expensive Bottle of Wine
