Inventing Anna NFTs, an IRS-ransomed $750k horse & a celeb puke shrine 👀🍿🧃
We also almost launched an OnlyFans before it was a thing
Hi Wrecklings! I’ve been watching The Deep End, a documentary series about a super controversial spiritual leader (read: ahem, cult). A fascinating but deeply disturbing watch— so proceed with caution.
“Daily Harvest Recalls Lentil Crumbles After Customers Allege Severe Liver Illness”- Well this is terrifying.
“Everything We Know About WWE's Probe Of Vince McMahon”- Early in my career, I once served cookies to Linda McMahon— her family is a force to be reckoned with, albeit one with questionable political leanings and Vince’s penchant for scandal.
“Taylor Frankie Paul Gets Real (Swinging, Divorce, MomTok & more)”- For those invested in the MomTok Mormon soft-swingers drama, hearing from Taylor herself is a good opportunity to get a less sensationalized account of what happened.
“Anna Delvey Is Swearing Off Grifting With Her Own Line of NFTs”- As an NFT-owner (I know, I know)- even I have to roll my eyes at this one. With 99.9% of NFT collections being grifts, this one is 1000% no different— which would be entirely unsurprising given who is at the helm.
“Meet the Self-Described ‘Bimbos’ of TikTok”- Chrissy Chlapecka’s content is amazing and definitely worth a look. Also, little late to the game NYT though, Rolling Stone covered Chrissy and this trend back in 2020.
“Those videos about a foot fetish site going viral on TikTok? A lot of them are sponcon”- Ah yes, marketing feat. 🥁💥
“1,100 Coinbase employees learned they were losing their jobs when they were locked out of their work emails. CEO Brian Armstrong said it was to 'ensure not even a single person made a rash decision that harmed the business'“- Interesting spin on why this layoff was done so poorly. It’s like when my colleagues at a previous job and I realized our boss had been let go because her Slack was deactivated… before we’d been told.
“A Wedding, a $750,000 Horse and the Complexity of IRS Seizures”- I love insane pieces like this, you learn so much about how absolutely bizarre things relating to mega-rich (erm, and some formerly mega-rich) people truly are.
“Meet the family behind 'Texas Thighs,' an account for a mom's salacious photos (when it isn't getting banned)”- Honestly, I am rooting for all the people on OnlyFans, good on them. Related— about 12 years ago, a roommate and I joked whether there’d be a way for us to make money off people watching us eat… we were clearly ahead of our time.
“Investigating the Harry Styles Puke Shrine With Kaitlyn Tiffany”- A fascinating sneak peek into the strange worlds of online fandoms. But let’s be serious, we already have first-hand knowledge of how weird they can get.
“Elon Musk’s Daughter Files to Ditch His Last Name”- But really, can you blame her? Huge kudos to her.
“Hailey Bieber’s Skincare Line Launch Dragged by Beauty Influencer Who Claims Star Wouldn’t Leave Her Celebrity ‘Bubble’”- Valid points in this piece but this blame 100% goes to the brand PR people and event organizers here— sounds like there was poor (or, zero…) planning on the celeb-interaction component. There should have been a speech planned or some organization about whether interviews with Hailey were going to be offered/given, and if neither were going to be doable… don’t host an event with her there.
“A Multimillionaire White Male Author Apologized For Talking About How Hard It Is For White Male Authors”- Oh look, another white boomer getting mad about feeling less privileged than usual. So sad 🎻🎶
