Thinx are toxic, olive oil fraud & self-destructing TVs 👀🍿🧃
I just started watching MILF Manor and let me tell you, the premise of the show is absolutely JAW DROPPING. I don’t even think my trash-loving brain can watch it. So, on to this week’s news!
❗ For our readers born with uteruses, important to flag that if you own Thinx, it might be time to throw them out— it just settled a class-action due to its products allegedly containing harmful chemicals linked to fertility issues and some cancers. ❗
Also this week is a story that’s a 💎 of corporate disaster scam stories. This is the perfect example of just 👩🏼🍳💋 👀🍿🧃.
''JPMorgan shutters website it paid $175 million for, accuses founder of inventing millions of accounts''- We need a documentary STAT.
''Carta, previously sued for gender discrimination, is now suing its former CTO''- Messy, messy, messy.
''The $3,000 totally wireless Displace TV is the definition of CES absurdity''- This is like a product that would have been in the HBO show, Silicon Valley, to parody tech releases.
''KFC Thailand promotes fried chicken incense sticks for CNY, gets flak for being inappropriate''- It seems like a no-brainer but this is why proper representation in the rooms where these choices are being made is important.
It seems that these execs aren’t even trying:
''In leaked audio, Cheddar bosses address newsroom burnout and outline their goals, but offer no concrete solutions for declining morale and ongoing exits''- Imagine being brought in to solve a huge problem and then telling your employees your plan is to “kind of rely on all of you to come up with ideas and talk to us.” 💀.
''Ubisoft CEO tells staff the ball is in their court to turn the company around''- Ah yes, the good old, if-we-all-spend-a-little-less-on-work-trip-dinners-we’ll-improve-our-company’s-performance line
''It’s the Coolest Rock Show in Ann Arbor. And Almost Everyone There Is Over 65.''- Not scandal, but everyone should know about “the silver tsunami” because this is the best thing ever.
''Sam Bankman-Fried launches Substack: ‘I didn’t steal funds, and I certainly didn’t stash billions away’''- My only reaction, especially when seeing that his “record of FTX US’s balance sheet” was essentially a basic GoogleSheets table:
''Dio Mio! Michael Bay Accused of Italian Birdslaughter”- Hmm…seems like the PR statement isn’t lying if it were a random pigeon…
''“Almond Moms” Can Promote Disordered Eating. Here’s How TikTokers Are Calling Out This Toxic Behavior.''- My mom carries around almonds in a Mentos tin for whenever she’s hungry…meanwhile bags of Cheetos are more my thing.
''Are beauty influencer brands falling out of fashion?''- Hopefully, the trend of influencers launching lines they clearly had no hand in developing were just money-grabs.
''Just How Common Is Corporate Fraud?''- There’s a tidbit in here about FTX having advertised on the little slips of paper in fortune cookies…
It’s just a matter of time until it’s revealed that George Santos is actually just two awful children in a coat:
''UK’s youngest ever lottery winner says she ‘wouldn’t wish it on anyone’''- To be fair, I would have completely ruined my life if I’d won the lottery at 17.
“Independent Chicago bookstore owner’s tweet venting over $800 return goes viral”- I hope this person’s friends find out it was them and their attempt to look well-read completely backfires.
To no one’s shock, there’s Elon and Twitter stories. Also def not related but 12Ft Ladder is a site I really like. 👀
“Twitter is auctioning off office supplies, including a pizza oven and neon bird sign”- Imagine paying $22k for a giant Twitter logo.
''Popular Tech Site Has Been Publishing AI-Written Articles For Months''- Welp, so much for journalistic integrity.
''The Extraordinary Rise and Fall of the Covid Billionaires''- Mmm ya, and they’re all still billionaires so I don’t feel badly for them.
''Nobody Wants To Buy The Ugly Crypto House''- Well this house didn’t age well…
''Cancelled D&D Beyond Subscriptions Forced Hasbro's Hand''- I love how swiftly fandoms come together to pressure change.
