Pooping unicorn sued, TikTok in cars & only the "non-stupid" need apply 👀🍿🧃
In case you missed it last week, we called out a gaming accessories company for an absolutely atrocious video they released— and our TikTok (content warning!) definitely helped to call attention to their poor behavior. After the TikTok gained more traction than their initial video, they pulled theirs. Alexa, play Taylor Swift’s “Vigilante Shit” 💁🏼♀️
''Companies Can’t Ask You to Shut up to Receive Severance, NLRB Rules''- It’ll be interesting to see if companies start treating their employees better now that this is the case.
''TikTok Announces New Integration with Mercedes Benz to Display TikTok Content on In-Car Screens''- …This feels like the dumbest idea.
“Instagram accidentally reinstated P0rnhub’s banned account''- Definitely a bit of a grey area when there are countless OnlyFans all over Instagram.
''Netflix, BBC and ITV set to ‘ban’ corsets from period dramas like Bridgerton over health and safety concerns''- I’d have thought there’d be a way to create a simply aesthetic corset — if the look was important for period pieces.
''Fountains of Youths: One grown-ass woman’s descent into the soul of the American teen on their home turf: the mall food court''- Not scandalous but anyone that also has a love/hate relationship with malls will love this.
''Dow said it was recycling our shoes. We found them at an Indonesian flea market''- Unsurprising but still disappointing.
''Black Eyed Peas’ ‘My Humps’ Ripped Off by Pooping Unicorn Toy, Lawsuit Claims''- I can’t imagine having to show this video to a bunch of high-billing lawyers.
''Guns, Grift, and Gore: The Life and Times of an Arms-Dealing Hustler''- A pathological liar with a penchant for pointing firearms at people sounds like a giant liability.
''How an Alleged Con Man Tore Apart One of the Nineties’ Biggest Bands''- An in-depth look at a feud between a pretty niche band but “Lightning Crashes” remains a good song.
''The Woman Who Returned Lady Gaga's Stolen Dogs Is Suing The Singer For Not Paying Her''- To be fair, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to pay someone likely involved in the dognapping to start?
''Elon Musk-led Twitter has been sued by at least six companies for failing to pay bills''- Are the Elon bros still convinced he’s doing this on purpose as a joke?
''More layoffs at Twitter, and loyalist Esther Crawford isn’t spared''- A perfect example that your job isn’t safe — even if you’ve slept at the office.
''DC’s Food Influencer Scene Is Booming. It’s Also a Hot Mess.''- I feel badly for laughing at, “It reminded me of that scene in Zoolander where they’re spraying gasoline on each other… there’s just cheese everywhere.”
''Ozy Media’s Founder, Carlos Watson, Arrested on Fraud Charges''- This was a long time coming but still, yikes.
“Former North Carolina insurance executive charged in $2B fraud scheme”- It’s wild to me how casually people are just scamming millions/billions.
''George Santos lied to a judge in 2017 bid to help a ‘family friend’ charged with fraud''- He does seem like the type to leave an angry review about a Domino’s Pizza delivery taking too long.
“Ex-MoviePass Exec Charged With Allegedly Stealing From Company to Pay for Coachella Party”- $260,000? That must have been some party.
''My Side Hustle Is Filing Class-Action Lawsuit Claims''- Huh. I guess it’s sort of like how people take surveys to get paid.
''Pentagon Warns Poppy-Seed Bagels Are a Threat to National Security''- Seems a bit late to the game as the FAA has been concerned about this for a while.
''Fishrot: The corruption scandal entwining Namibia and Iceland''- Pun not even intended, but this is a perfect example of a fish beginning to rot from the head.
''A Rare Book Scandal Provides a Warning About Private Equity''- Bummed fractionalized ownership over rare manuscripts was a scam because that sounds super cool.
I saw this tweet last week, now you do too:
