Just a FaZe, Stoner Cats sober up & revenge a la public domain 👀🍿🧃
This week we’re all thinking about the Roman Empire!
“Elon Musk Suggests He Will Charge All X/Twitter Users a Fee to Be on the Platform”- Mmmkay. Never thought I’d share an X with millions. 🥁💥
“Officials find debris field of F-35 fighter jet that went missing in South Carolina after a ‘mishap’ forced the pilot to eject”- Imagine coming home from work having lost a $100M jet.
''From $1 Billion to Almost Worthless: FaZe Clan Runs Out of Hype''- “We weren’t throwing money in the garbage. We were creating a mythology” apparently didn’t work out
“Meet Airbnb’s official party pooper, who reduced partying by 55% in two years”- Not terribly scandalous, but fascinating.
''She Invented Being an Influencer — And Was Vilified for It''- A name familiar to OG Gawker (RIP x2) readers, r/BlogSnark obviously has some thoughts.
''Why every game developer is mad right now, explained''- An update on the latest is here. P.S. for those of you fiction lovers, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a great read (and the only reason why I know what a game engine is)
''A ufologist claims to show 2 alien corpses to Mexico's Congress''- Not scandalous per se, but we love an alien update.
''Drew Barrymore Takes Down Apology Video As Alyssa Milano, Bradley Whitford, Debra Messing & More Have Strong Reactions To Actress’ Decision To Return To Work Amid Strikes''- She’s officially joined the ranks of cringe celebrity apology videos.
''Low-code platform provider Airtable enacts new round of layoffs''- I feel like they’ve been so quiet on the PR/marketing front, that didn’t do them any favors.
''The Wolf Among Us and Fables creator clashes with DC and puts entire franchise into the public domain''- Love to see malicious compliance.
''Las Vegas Cyberattack Strip Club Offers Free Lap Dances For Affected MGM Guests''- A+ for the publicist who came up with this low-lift campaign.
''Influencer’s American Airlines meltdown: ‘I’m Instagram famous you f–king bum!’''- Cool story, now shhh and sit back down with the rest of us in coach.
Web3 shenanigans continue:
''The food industry pays ‘influencer’ dietitians to shape your eating habits''- Yikesss, unsurprising but shady AF.
''Kanye West Sued By Ex-Employee Over Back Pay and Unsafe Working Conditions''- Of course his house is “open-concept, industrial-brutalist, art-style dwelling that’s also a bomb shelter-bunker.”
''One of America’s First Women’s Colleges Is Accused of Paying Men More''- I hate it (t)here.
''Dad sues hospital for $642M after witnessing his wife’s C-section: ‘It gave me psychotic illness’''- I can see why he’s no longer married.
🔏''Airbnb Really Is Different Now''- I miss being greeted by the host with a glass of wine and local recommendations! It’s like when most Ubers had mints and phone chargers.
