'Apology Dinners' Are The Latest Concept To Perplex The Internet

In my family, apologies take time, and are delivered begrudgingly at best. They usually come in the form of a text, or an awkward exchange in a car or a doorway. These apologies end abruptly, with the issue swept under the rug for the victim to simply get over at their own pace. Normal, right? Well, today much of the internet learned about another form of apology. Instead of a simple back and forth with a loved one, apparently there are people who host "Apology Dinners." The concept was the talk of Twitter yesterday, for good reason.

In a now-deleted Reddit post, a user asked the r/AITA (Am I The Asshole) subreddit if they were in the wrong for organizing their sister's "apology dinner." The post (which was inspired by a much sadder apology dinner thread) goes through great effort to explain the concept of a potluck dinner, but carries on to the family drama without pausing to demystify this bizarre custom. After it was shared on Twitter,the tale went viral, inspiring many confused, surprised and critical reactions. 

While we're not sure we've ever met anyone who engaged in this kind of ritual, OP explains in a comment that they are from Romania, and that it's a common occurrence in their culture. Being that we've never been to Romania, we'll have to take their word for it. We'll also have to take some inspiration from the story to raise the bar for everyone who has ever wronged us. Next time I hear my roommate having sex, I'll expect him to feed me a lobster dinner. It's only fair.

Joe Biden Is Getting Relentlessly Roasted For His 'Apology' Video On Twitter

Former Vice President Joe Biden has recently come under fire for allegedly making multiple women uncomfortable in the past with inappropriate physical contact. Biden issued an apology video yesterday on Twitter (which you can watch below) where he referenced "changing social norms" as the reason for his alleged misconduct, vowing in the future to "respect personal space." Physical contact, however. has always been his way of showing support to others, he stated.

Many on the internet are calling out Biden for giving a total non-apology and completely missing the point - and of course, creating Twitter memes out of it all. Scroll down to read what some people are saying about the issue! 

What do you think? Did Biden go too far? Was his apology sufficient? Let us know in the comments!

Vegan Influencer Caught Eating Meat, Shocks Loyal Followers

Vegan Youtube star and influencer Rawvana has issued a very long apology after being caught on camera eating fish while on vacation. Yovana Mendoza Ayres has been promoting her supposed raw vegan lifestyle for nearly six years via English and Spanish language vlogs. Her channels boasted over 3 million followers combined - and most of them are pretty pissed at this revelation.

Yovana's secret addition of fish to her diet was discovered after a video was posted of her chowing down in Mexico. One of her companions took a video and the influencer quickly and sheepishly attempts to hide the contents of her plate. She was very unsuccessful. 

Her lengthy apology video was posted on March 15th, and has already gained nearly 200k views. The comments not only call her out for her dishonesty, but for the fact that she monetized the video heavily with ads. Ayres says that due to digestive issues, doctors suggested she incorporate both fish and eggs into her diet. Frankly, it's not surprising that instead of revealing the truth to her following she opted to hide it so as to attempt to hold on to her lucrative career. Her fans seem to just wish she had been honest. If you need more entertainment, take a gander at the thousands of angry and disappointed comments right over here.

Luke Gatti doesn't want your mac 'n' cheese donations—send those to your local food bank, the infamous "drunk UConn kid" said in his apology video.

Remember the entitled teen who was caught on video berating a cafeteria worker over bacon-jalapeño mac 'n' cheese? Well, that's Gatti. And he's super sorry now.

After the incident went viral, the student was dismissed from his university. This seems to be a wake-up call.

"I am ashamed. I really am ashamed of myself," he says in the video.

Gatti apologizes to the cafeteria staff, calls himself an a**hole and promises to seek help for his problems.

Wait...a local diner named a calzone after this kid? Nah, he won't learn a thing.

While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.

Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."

She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?

The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.
