Alyssa Milano's Call For A #SexStrike Is Leaving Both Sides Of The Political Spectrum *Real* Confused

Last week the governor of Georgia signed the "heartbeat bill" which would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is able to be detected by a doctor. The state of Alabama followed suit, proposing a total ban on abortions in nearly all cases. We won't get into the politics of that whole deal, but you probably understand why it's controversial to many.

On Friday, Alyssa Milano tweeted her call for a "sex strike," with the intention of withholding sex from men until women can get their bodily autonomy back, in her words. Liberals and conservatives alike are saying this movement is a little, um, misguided? 

At the end of the day, at least we can all come together regardless of our political affiliations to make fun of celebrities who say totally ridiculous sh*t!

Aunt Becky Is Getting Meme'd And Roasted For Bribing Her Spoiled Daughter's Way Into College

Are y'all ready for a mess of a news story? Lori Loughlin, AKA Aunt Becky from Full House, was taken into custody this morning for participating in a huge college admissions sting to get her completely unqualified daughter admitted into the University of Southern California. Several other wealthy celebrities were involved, including Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman and her husband William H. Macy.

Charges so far include $25 million in bribes to university authorities and fabrication of credentials to be admitted into some of the top universities in the nation.

Some have pointed out that Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, would never have been admitted to USC on her own academic merit. Giannulli, a prominent beauty YouTuber, even admitted in a video back in August that she plans to focus more on college parties than her classes.

Under the monikers #FreeAuntBecky and #CollegeAdmissionScandal, many memers and Twitter users have expressed their frustration at the situation, pointing out that regular people have to get admitted to universities on actual academic merit and not absurdly rich parents.

Kylie Jenner Was Just Named Youngest 'Self-Made' Billionaire And People Have Some THOUGHTS

It's official: Kylie Jenner is the world's youngest "self-made" billionaire ever at age 21, even younger than Mark Zuckerberg, who made his first billion at 23. There's no doubt that Jenner, who started Kylie Cosmetics in 2015, works incredibly hard at what she does, but the internet has been skeptical of whether "self-made" is an appropriate title for someone born into the already-wealthy Kardashian-Jenner empire. 

Twitter users have been offering their spicy takes on the matter, which you can read below.

Anti-LGBT Emoji Hoax Has Spawned A Ton Of Dank Memes

The internet bore witness to some serious emoji controversy this week over an emoji that doesn't actually exist. Twitter user @mioog tweeted a crossed out pride flag, later claiming that he had found it in Apple's code. The tweet inspired more tweets, some claiming it was an Apple creation, and others making jokes that were pro-LGBT. As can be expected, there were also many, many memes. It was soon revealed on Reddit that the emoji is actually a combination of unicode characters, and not, in fact, a sinister homophobic emoji of Apple's creation. This comes as a relief, and allows us to enjoy some of the dumb memes that have come out of this internet debacle.

Nike's Ad Campaign With Colin Kaepernick Has The Internet Reacting In All Sorts Of Ways

Nike has gotten into some hot water recently for their new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick. The campaign features a closeup of Kaepernick's face with text overlay that reads, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything" in light of Kaepernick's controversial kneeling during the national anthem. 

Many have praised Nike for the bold move, while many others are completely boycotting Nike's products, or even cutting the logo off of already-purchased Nike apparel. But whatever the stance, most everyone is having a grand ol' time making the situation into memes.

What are your thoughts on the new Nike ad campaign? We'd love to know in the comments!

Chinese Prom Dress Backlash Tweet Has Inspired Some Spicy Parodies

There was some serious prom dress controversy last week after high school student Keziah posted prom photos of herself wearing a cheongsam - a traditional Chinese dress. While Keziah had many supporters, several people were adamantly against her dress choice, citing racism and appropriation of culture. Twitter user Jeremy Lam was one of these opponents, retweeting Keziah's photos with the caption "My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress." 

Lam ended up seeing his own backlash as people found him guilty of bullying - but the best Lam backlash comes in the form of tweet parodies. His dramatic quip has made for some hilarious Twitter memes, featuring the likes of Guy Fieri and our favorite lizard person, Mark Zuckerberg.

TorrentFreak reported that Blizzard has filed a lawsuit against Germany-based cheating company Bossland (a company that Blizzard also sued over World of Warcraft "buddy bots") for an Overwatch cheating tool called "Watchover Tyrant."

"Defendants' sale and distribution of the Bossland Hacks in the United States has caused Blizzard to lose millions or tens of millions of dollars in revenue, and to suffer irreparable damage to its goodwill and reputation," Blizzard said in its complaint.

"Moreover, by releasing 'Overwatch Cheat' just days after the release of Overwatch, Defendants are attempting to destroy or irreparably harm that game before it even has had a chance to fully flourish," it added.

"Defendants not only know that their conduct is unlawful, but they engage in that conduct with the deliberate intent to harm Blizzard and its business," the developer said. "Blizzard is entitled to monetary damages, injunctive and other equitable relief, and punitive damages against Defendants,” the complaint reads."

Get the rest of the story, and read up on the lawsuit over at TorrentFreak.
