Twitter Thread Mocks Hilariously Clueless Bath Tray Marketing Photos

Listen, we appreciate that our advanced technologies have allowed us to transport wine in inventive ways and charge our phones from the couch. We even appreciate the simple bathtub tray for allowing us to watch a movie or read while soaking in a hot tub. But apparently their marketing teams are pretty clueless as to what people actually do in the tub. As Twitter user @doodlyroses pointed out in this thread, not only do bath tray manufacturers believe that only women take baths, they believe that they eat gigantic charcuterie boards while relaxing - and drink enough in the tub to pass out. The photos are ridiculous, and verge on sexist, but we think they'll provide you with a good laugh. Which is rare these days.

E! News Congratulates Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas With Cringey Sexist Tweet, Fans Respond

Hollywood "it-couple" Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas announced the birth of their daughter, Willa, yesterday, and the internet has been pretty emotional about the joyous occasion. Both Turner and Jonas are big stars - Joe rose to fame as one of the Jonas Brothers, while Sophie became a household name after playing Sansa Stark on HBO's adaptation of Game of Thrones. She's also portrayed Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix and X-Men Apocalypse. It's obvious that she has made a name for herself, but according to this congratulatory tweet, E! News doesn't care to acknowledge that. 

The tweet, which only references Joe by name, is being criticized for being both absolutely corny and kind of sexist. And Twitter users have not been mincing their words on the subject. The responses range from absurdist jokes to disgust and anger. We've put the best (and angriest) responses right here for your convenience. Let's hope E! hires better social media editors in the future.

Cringey Sexist Twitter Thread Suggests 'Leaning In' Makes Men Weak

Happy Monday! Are you ready for a new week of cringe? 'Cause there's a whole lot of it on the internet today. Our new favorite facepalm-worthy thread comes from @alpharivelino, an account run by a sexist dude with way too many followers. The thread, which was shared on May 2, suggests that men who lean into their partner during photo ops are weak. Using photos of Hafthor Bjornssen (one of the world's strongest men), Jason Statham, and Kevin Hart, @alpharivelino tries to make his case that posturing determines whether you're a strong, powerful man, or basically a needy simp. Needless to say, people on Twitter did not take kindly to the ridiculous thread, and were very vocal about it.

GameSpot Game Reviewer Rats Out Jerk To His Own Mother

Many women involved in the gaming community have suffered at the hands of male gamers and enthusiasts. GameSpot game reviewer Kallie Plagge is just the latest woman to be assaulted by an immature prick with nothing better to do. But she took matters into her own hands and decided to fight back - by finding and snitching on him to his mother. We normally advise against snitching (you don't want to risk getting stitches) but this exchange was particularly satisfying. Plagge shared the conversation to Twitter, and pretty much everyone had a fiery roast or enthused congratulations for the writer. She deserves all props.

Women's Vintage Ads That Have Not Aged Well

Ladies, do you get horrible period cramps? That sucks, but think about how your poor husband feels when you're not there to cook and clean for him because you're "in too much pain." He's waiting for his dinner and he doesn't know how to boil his own water for pasta, dammit.

In all seriousness, clearly this narrative wouldn't fly today, but the mid-twentieth century and before was a completely different story. Scroll down and see for yourself.

'I Found A Picture Of Your Grandfather' Memes Are Ironic Shitposts With Problematic Themes

On a day when "Ok Boomer" is one of the biggest memes, it's funny that another trending meme could be seen as its greatest enemy. "I Found A Picture Of Your Grandfather" memes roast recent generations, using cringey photos to make a point about kids these days. While a few of them are sexist and homophobic, the meme is now being used in an ironic shitposting fashion - and we hope it stays in that zone. There's enough hateful garbage on the internet to last at least a millenia.

An Iranian Streaming Service Photoshopped Female Artists Out Of Their Own Album Covers

Iranian music streaming site Melovaz has recently come under fire for doing something, uh, strange - they've erased all female music artists from album art on their site while leaving their male counterparts untouched. The double standards here are likely due to Iran's strict rules about Muslim women not being seen uncovered, which Melovaz apparently has also extended to non-Muslim women in the media. 

The following are some examples of such that will probably make you laugh and then immediately feel sad for humanity.

Woman Gets Twitter-Roasted For Her Sexist Comments About Being An 'Old-Fashioned' Wife

In this day and age, women in the Western world have the freedom to pursue almost anything they want. Unfortunately, there are some people who feel the need to broadcast their regressive views from the 1950s over social media. We're totally all for women doing whatever they want - housewifery included - but this Twitter user made her husband sound like a straight-up manchild who can't take care of himself.

With the cost of living constantly skyrocketing, being a housewife without a full-time job isn't really an option for most women anymore, and these Twitter users masterfully parodied this woman's tweet with all of that in mind!

Eric Trump Sends Out Electoral Map of Men-Only Election Hinting 'Momentum Is on Their Side' and Receives Prompt Mocking from the Internet

If only Nate Silver could've known that his electoral map tweets would inspire the latest hilarious meme movement. Silver was attempting to illustrate how the election would turn out if only men, or only women turned out to vote based on a polls-only forecast. The blue map showed Hillary winning big time, while the red shows Trump with the easy victory. Shortly after all this, Eric Trump pushed the men-only electoral map as a 'hint' momentum was on their side. Let the hilarity ensue.
