Frontier of trickery, Allbirds are sad & Aritzia's mean men 👀🍿🧃
I’ve been listening to the podcast The Girlfriends, which is a fascinating listen, but worth waiting if you like a complete binge. Also, saw this tweet about how Twitter’s new X rebrand might be a super dumb move:
''Twitter again sued over severance pay, bias during layoffs''- But good thing they’re focusing on the dumbest rebrand ever.
“Buying face time: A secret invite list shows how big donors gain access to Supreme Court justices”- I’m actually surprised it’s only $10k…
''Met trustee and philanthropist has 89 looted ancient artifacts worth $69 MILLION seized''- This level of wealth is horrendous.
''YouTuber Who Staged Himself Sleeping Through WNBA Game May Now Be Banned from All NBA Events''- Somehow this man has 7.59M followers encouraging these shenanigans.
''Homeowner claims person he rented his pool out to invited 120 people over for pool party''- Being a host on any peer-to-peer apps always risks f*ck around and find out.
''Maybe showing off an AI-generated fake TV episode during a writers’ strike is a bad idea''- The ultimate tone-deaf stunt, unless they’re trying to align with the dark side.
''NSFW SpongeBob Artwork By Show's Artists Surfaces After 20 Years''- I… can never look at Spongebob the same.
''The Texas influencer detained in Dubai for 'screaming' may have been the victim of an elaborate scam''- Landing in a foreign jail is amongst my biggest fears.
''US influencer works as ‘emotional support stripper’ in Ukraine''- I’m unsure how to process this one.
More proof big studios are terrible:
''Fully AI-Generated Influencers Are Getting Thousands of Reactions Per Thirst Trap''- It’s just a matter of time until this moves over to OnlyFans.
''Frontier Airlines Getting Sued Over 'Hidden' Bag Fees''- They were literally bamboozling people into having to pay for luggage they’d been told were free.
''FTX sues Bankman-Fried, others to recoup more than $1 billion''- Recoup from where, though?
“Louis Vuitton Hit With Copyright Lawsuit Over Ad Campaign Music”- Big brands could support independent artists, but it’s sad most actually just steal from them instead.
''DJ John Summit Says He Was Sued For ‘7 Figures’ Over His Label Name. The Truth Is More Complicated''- The most dramatic non-drama.
“How Allbirds Lost Its Way”- I’ve always maintained these were ugly as heck, and they gave me blisters, so…
🔏“Cool-girl brand Aritzia made employees rate each other's appearances, discriminated against Black salespeople, and fostered a culture of fear, some ex-staffers say”- Dang, time to find a different grown-up-Express store.
