Chainsmokers Under Fire Following Irresponsible Hamptons 'Drive-In' Concert

Electronic pop group The Chainsmokers are being widely criticized following a "Drive-In" charity concert they performed in the Hamptons on Saturday. The performance was intended to raise money for charities, with tickets prices ranging between $1,250 to $2,500. The hefty cost is no surprise given the New York summer spot's incredibly wealthy reputation.

While organizers of the event said the temperatures of all 3,000 attendees were checked, and that preventative social distancing was enforced, social media footage from the event paints a different story. Video from the concert appears to show a sizable crowd that's clearly ignoring the 6ft rules of safe distance. The footage is so damning that Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted his disapproval late Monday: 

"Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled. The Department of Health will conduct an investigation. We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health."

Though organizers of the "Safe and Sound" event claim to have worked with state and local health officials to keep attendees safe, the response from government figures says otherwise.  Howard Zucker, the New York State Health Commissioner, sent a perplexed letter to the Town of Southampton expressing his shock that anyone would think this show was a good idea during a deadly pandemic.

As of right now, the event is being investigated by the New York Department of Health - and the Chainsmokers have yet to comment on the situation. But folks on Twitter seem to have a lot to say about the oft-roasted music group's incredibly callous performance. We've put together the best tweets for your entertainment. Now all we can do is hope that the Northeast doesn't get that second wave it's been desperately avoiding.

New Yorkers React To The State's First Case Of Coronavirus

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the state's first confirmed case of Coronavirus last night, the same day as the first deaths from the disease were announced. The victim, a 39 year old woman who had just traveled to Iran, is currently quarantined in her Manhattan apartment. It's predicted her husband will be host to the virus as well. While Cuomo assured the state that the risk is low, scared commuters and comedians from the city aired their fears and jokes on Twitter. And they're as entertaining as a pandemic can allow. Let's just hope people remember to wash their hands and are able to find some masks. The subway is about to become a very, very scary place.

NYC's 'Cigarette Roach' Is Lighting Up Twitter

Move over, Pizza Rat! You've got some seriously stiff competition! A few days ago, Twitter user Tom Kretchmar uploaded a video of a cigarette-toting cockroach flirting with a subway grate. The video quickly went viral, gaining over 3.7 million views in as many days. Twitter users were quick to put their own spin on the tweet, making jokes about artsy New York college students, and other animals with a nicotine addiction. The responses are almost as good as the video itself.

Internet Reacts To Angry Short Dude's Misogynistic 'Bagel Boss' Rant

An angry outburst at a Bay Shore, Long Island bagel store has gone viral after a teenage girl recorded 5' Chris Morgan ranting about women, and the way women treat men of his short stature. Morgan behaves aggressively in the video, eventually challenging a bystander to "step outside" with him. The bystander, towering over Morgan, ends up tackling the angry dude, and the video ends. Later, on Instagram Live, the girls behind the viral video explain that Morgan believed the women behind that counter of the bagel store had been smirking at him, and that this impression had caused his unhinged explosion. 

People on Twitter and Instagram have been eating this content up, responding with memes and a whole lot of short jokes. It's clear that Morgan has a chip on his vertically challenged shoulder, but his contempt for humanity seems to go beyond women. As seen on Ebaum's World, his Youtube Channel is exactly you'd expect. In now-deleted videos (they violated Youtube's terms of service) he uploads anti-semitic content. In other videos, which you can view below, he refers to women as gold-digging b*tches and gleefully leaves a date without a ride after she says she doesn't want to go home with him.

Jokes and memes aside, people like Chris Morgan need help. But he doesn't see it that way. In an interview with the Daily Mail, he touts himself as Martin Luther King of short people. 'I have a mission. The girls hate me, they don't like me, that's fine,' he added. 'I'm not stopping and the world is going to hear me. I want equality for everybody. ' Good luck, bro.

Popular Youtuber Etika Found Dead In New York City

The NYPD's search for 29 year old Desmond 'Etika' Amofah has come to a tragic end. The New York Police Department confirmed earlier today that a body found in the East River was that of the allegedly troubled Youtuber. The police began searching for the popular live-streamer on June 20th following Amofah's disappearance, and before that, the uploading of a chilling video in which he revealed his suicidal thoughts. Many fans were hopeful that this was a moment of  being "overdramatic," similar to a stunt he had pulled in 2018.Things began taking a less hopeful turn when his belongings were recovered, scattered around the Manhattan Bridge. 

Following news of Etika's demise, many peers and fans took to Twitter and Youtube to share their shock, stories of happier times, and to implore people to pay attention to mental health.

 If you are struggling with mental illness or suicidal thoughts, remember that help is available. Talk to someone.

Oh look, a completely preventable disease is on the rise once again, and this time it's reared its ugly face in New York City. Come on, WTF people...it's kind of surreal that in 2019 we're still having to convince some that the measles vaccine is safe, effective and doesn't cause autism. Accordingly, the city of New York will require unvaccinated individuals to get the MMR vaccine or pay a $1,000 fine.

 Many outraged individuals have taken to Twitter to express their frustration with the anti-vax movement, and we're here for the sass that's ensued.

Vice writer Sara David has opened our eyes to a whole new world of public transportation psychosis. A ludicrous tale involving rush hour and hard-boiled eggs.
