15 Minutes of Infamy: What People Freaked Out About Online This Week

We all know the internet is a place where people like to complain and drag each other through the mud.

But these days, getting mad about stuff on the internet has basically become our new national pastime. Especially if it’s about something that people think will make them look smart or woke.

And boy do we get mad at a lot of things on a daily basis!

In fact, we get mad at so many things all the time that it’s pretty much impossible to remember what you angrily tweeted about on Monday once Friday rolls around.

So we’ve decided to start a new weekly feature where we pay homage to all the things that people got mad about during the week that’s not important enough to be immortalized in the history books.

Welcome to “15 Minutes of Infamy.”

Memorial Day

Growing up, Memorial Day was one of those holidays that nobody really understood, but who cares because you got a day off from school and it was usually warm enough to go to the beach.

But now that we’re living in the Woke Age, people get very sensitive about Memorial Day. Because it’s not supposed to be a fun day to throw a BBQ and get blackout drunk on the roof, it’s supposed to be about the troops and the sacrifices they made for our country.

So, as you might imagine, the Internet got PISSED when a handful of not woke celebrities tweeted not woke tidings of Memorial Day joy.

Here are three of the biggest offenders:

Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter is one of the most thot positive celebrities in existence today. And we here at Galore bless her for it. 

Since every day is a good day to post a sexy bikini picture for Ariel Winter, she celebrated Memorial Day by pulling down on her bikini and wishing her followers a happy Memorial Day.

Happy #MemorialDay

A post shared by ARIEL WINTER (@arielwinter) on

And while some of her followers said things like, “I want to clone you,” some like @sariah.malivanh said, “why do you post this for vetrans who died? this is disgusting.”

@Nev.such chimed in by saying, “Our soldiers fight for this country and this is what you post? On Memorial Day? Wow really shows respect for our soldiers.”

But @radiac1, who claims to be an actual vet, set ’em straight, saying, “as a vet who has lost shipmates, I can’t think of one who would object to your post. Thank you.”

Pitbull

Mr. Worldwide angered Twitter when he posted a tweet saying, “Today we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for America #MemorialDay” and underneath posted a picture of his smiling face superimposed on the American Flag.

While his words were top notch, Twitter users were very offended about his smiling face.

Ivanka Trump

Last but not least, people got pissed at Ivanka.

Not because of anything she said, but because of something her Team Ivanka Trump Twitter account tweeted out a recipe for Champagne popsicles.

I think we can all agree there’s nothing to see here.

Moving on.

This makeup artist who turned a white woman into a black woman

If there’s one thing people don’t like, it’s casual blackface. 

But for some reason the makeup artist behind the Instagram account @PaintDatFace thought people would gag on her very glam take on it.

And you know what, people did gag, just not in a good way.

Honestly @PaintDatFace should have known better. Next.

Barstool’s Blog Post About Rihanna’s Body

It’s never nice to talk about a woman’s weight in public, but that didn’t stop Barstool Sports from publishing a lengthy rant about Rihanna titled, “Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?”

Yes, it was in fact written by a dumb boy and believe it or not, the actual post was even ruder than the headline.

And as you might imagine, people weren’t into it.

Honestly, it would have been better if everybody would have just ignored this garbage article instead of giving the author and Barstool a shit ton of publicity and clicks, but hey, that’s just me!

Somebody put a peeing dog next to the Fearless Girl Statue

First of all, did you even remember the Fearless Girl statue existed?

No? Same.

Well, basically what happened is some dude artist made a statue of a peeing dog called “Sketchy Dog” and put it next to the Fearless Girl statue so it looked like the dog was peeing on her leg.

Although USA Today reports the artist who made the peeing dog says he didn’t mean for it to be an anti-feminist thing, what else is a dog peeing on a feminist sculpture supposed to mean?

And people got mad.

The Red Shoes Body Shaming Trailer

On Tuesday, some marketing for Chloe Grace Moretz’s new animated film “Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs” made the rounds on Twitter, after Tess Holliday realized it was high key bodyshaming.

And don’t worry, Chloe Grace Moretz was pissed about it too!

But again, if it wasn’t for the outcry against this, almost no one in the western world would have even seen the “offensive” poster — it was only displayed in South Korea. Now that everyone had to weigh in and denounce it on Twitter, it’s safe to say thousands more people have seen it and possibly had their feelings hurt.

Good job, guys.

The Wonder Woman Movie

For some reason, Vulture decided to have a man review the new “Wonder Woman” film and believe it or not, he said a few things people would consider sexist.

Yikes.

Kathy Griffin Holding Up Trump’s Fake Severed Head

On Tuesday, Kathy Griffin came out of nowhere to share a photo shoot of her holding a bloody, decapitated Donald Trump head.

It was not the smartest joke for a public figure to make, especially because it wasn’t really a joke. Because it wasn’t funny. It was just Kathy Griffin holding a bloody, decapitated Donald Trump head.

And people just got pissed.

And some people got pissed that people were pissed.

Then Griffin apologized on Twitter, got fired from her job at CNN and that made people pissed too.



And did I mention Trump tweeted about how his 11-year-old son Barron had seen the image and was having an “especially” hard time coping with the photo, and that also made people mad?!


And then people were mad that during a press conference she gave, Kathy Griffin said the Trumps were bullying her and she was a victim. And somehow people were still mad enough to get even madder!

Seriously, this is Kathy Griffin people.

She made a bad joke, not a serious assassination threat, but everybody’s freaking out about it as much, if not more than Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Really? 

Calm down.

Until next week, fam.

Stay mad.
