Columnist Demolished By Twitter For Op-ed About Millennials

The oldest millennials are about to be 40 and the media is still somehow telling the entire generation to 'grow the eff up'—a tall order in the midst of constant ecological, financial and health crises. Not to mention war, unemployment, non-existent job security, housing market collapse, student debt, and on and on and on. Yesterday, journalist Jennifer Rosner got dragged by Twitter after the Chicago Tribune plugged her op-ed piece about millennials. When you read the article itself however, it becomes clear that the Chicago Tribune's tweet was a bit misleading. The post that riled up thousands of millennials read, 'writer Jennifer Rosner predicts COVID-19 lockdowns will force easy-breezy millennials to grow up.' In the actual op-ed, Rosner covers her ass by framing the various criticisms of millennials as her boomer dad's opinions. She simply suggests that the pandemic may have something to do with her fellow millennials suddenly embracing a more suburban sort of life that her father's generation might approve of. In any case, the Tribune's tweet was more than enough to hit a nerve. We've collected some of the spiciest roasts from before the controversial tweet got deleted.

Journalist Gets Roasted After Claiming Horror Movies Can't Be Set In Space

What's up with Twitter these days? Are the blue checks running out of opinions? Because lately the takes have been extra bad, and today's main character is journalist @elle_hunt, who thinks a horror movie cannot be set in space. It all started when @elle_hunt tweeted a poll asking whether or not Alien was a horror movie, after which she followed up with the controversial bad take in question: 'My argument: horror cannot be set in space.' @elle_hunt got dragged so hard by so many people, that she accidentally made 'Alien' and 'Event Horizon' trend on Twitter. While many responded with stills from their favorite sci-fi horror films, others argued simply that 'space' is just a setting, and horror can exist in any setting, as long as there is fear. We've collected some of the spiciest and funniest replies to @elle_hunt's Twitter fail.

Gas Shortage Inspires Rumors of Bagged Gasoline & Roasty Tweets

If you're at all connected to what's going on in the world, you're probably aware that many people in the United States seem to be worried about a gas shortage. Here in New York, the last time we had a gas shortage (after Hurricane Sandy) was pretty debilitating. Lines of cars sometimes went for miles, filled with worried and agitated drivers - and then, of course, there were the ones who had to find a way to navigate around them. This time it's not a natural disaster that's causing mayhem. This gas panic is a direct result of last week's cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline, a major pipeline that provides gas along much of the East Coast, and all the way to Houston. 

Colonial Pipeline announced today that they've restarted their pipeline system and have resumed deliveries, but that can't undo the panic and the memes its inspired. The ransomwear attack influenced hordes of frantic drivers in the Southeast to stockpile gasoline in whatever containers they had available - a move that evoked the country's toilet paper crisis from the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. While several photos and videos of people stockpiling gasoline in unorthodox containers have been flying around, none have faced as much ridicule as a photo and video of people attempting to collect gasoline in plastic bags. 



Though both the photograph and the video are real, neither of them were taken in the last week. In the trunk? Gasoline that two men had attempted to steal, not in the United States, but in the Mexican state of Puebla. The video was taken in December of 2019, and according to Snopes, it depicts a woman doing some weird sh*t in Houston, Texas. Despite the misconceptions, people on Twitter have been eating up the idea that people around the country are filling up bags with gas. It even got so bad that the US Consumer Product Safety Safety Commission published a thread urging citizens not to horde gas in this unique manner. Even more entertaining than the thread (which should not exist) are the roasty tweets that users are firing out left and right. We know it's kind of shitty to make fun of people who might have a screw loose, but god, we can't help but enjoy the spicy savagery.

As 'We Are Closed' Signs Pop Up Across the Country, Twitter Roasts Exploitative Employers

Remember a year ago when everyone was all like 'omg thank you to our essential workers, you guys are heroes!'  Well apparently it doesn't take long for the narrative to switch back to 'these lazy wage workers are crybabies.' Across the country, franchises everywhere are putting up the same passive aggressive sign: 'We are short staffed. Please be patient with the staff that did show up. No one wants to work anymore.' For the millions of people who either lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic or had no other choice but to power through unsafe work conditions, this trending sentiment among the managerial class only adds insult to injury. 

As 'we are closed' trends on Twitter, many are throwing in their spicy takes and roasty memes to contribute their cathartic 'F you' to the man. Keep scrolling for some of the latest highlights.

Simple Game Of Thrones Tweet Reawakens Season 8 Hate

The North remembers what happened at the red wedding, and Game of Thrones fans remember what happened in Season 8. It's been a decade since the HBO series first hooked millions of viewers, edging devoted fans with season after season of multi-layered storylines and cliff-hangers, all culminating in an underwhelming final season that felt like someone hastily sweeping dust under a rug. It's no surprise that GoT fans felt personally insulted after @GameOfThrones tweeted 'Winter is coming,' a famous line that was once heavy with the promise of an epic conclusion to the dramatic fantasy series. Game of Thrones faded out of the zeitgeist pretty quickly after that final episode, and yet even two years later, the fans are still bitter. Keep scrolling for a handful of the most amusing spicy responses to @GameOfThrones's triggering tweet.

18 Hot Wendy's Zingers From National Roast Day

Twitter's Roasting A Dude For Admitting To Using Dog Shampoo

Nobody's perfect. We all make mistakes. Some worse than others. But if you post your "Ls" on Twitter, it's pretty much a given that you're gonna get roasted to a crisp if you have more than a handful of followers. Twitter's latest victim is Jonathan Kay, a writer for Quillette - an Australian publication that weirdly attracts both racists and liberals. But today we're here to talk about what Jonathan Kay did wrong, physically instead of morally. 

Kay took to Twitter yesterday to innocently reveal that he had been using an Arm & Hammer dog shampoo for the past few months. At first, we were like "okay, maybe it looked like a human shampoo." But then we saw a photo of the pet grooming product and it has a very visible, very adorable dog on the packaging. And while Kay claims that "for pets" was in 4 point type. It's...definitely not. Needless to say, Twitter users were very, very quick to rail on the dude with roasts and amusing parodies. While it's true that his journalistic reputation didn't do him any favors, it's nice to see people roasting other people for doing something that is inane and fluffy. We just want to see a picture of how his hair looks now. Maybe using dog shampoo is the beauty hack we've been missing this whole time.

Twitter roasts Jonathan Kay of Quillette for using Arm & Hammer dog shampoo | so it turns out I've been using dog shampoo on my hair for the last few months. (I only discovered it when I ran out and needed to get more.) this is partly my own fault but it doesnt help that @ArmandHammer has the word "pets" in like 4-pt typeface. I'm guessing this is common

Twitter Roasts Bruce Willis For Refusing To Wear A Mask In LA Pharmacy

This week in covidiot news: Bruce Willis refused to cover his face with a bandana he had wrapped around his neck after Rite Aid employees confronted him. Other customers were rightfully upset, as the incident took place in Los Angeles—a Covid-19 hotbed where the virus has already claimed 10,000 lives. Is it possible to live free and die hard? Because it seems like Bruce is trying to achieve both.

Page Six reported the incident, prompting Twitter to do what it does best—roast the hell out of the doer of the Bad Thing. We've collected some of the best tweets that cleverly use the titles of movies starring Willis to put a punny spin on all the fuss.
