Everything That Upset the Internet This Week

What is the web-o-sphere angry about this week? Two iconic TV reboots and a condiment flavoured ice-cream. Here’s everything you need to know.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is being re-booted with an African American lead

THE STORY: Over the Comic-Con weekend, news began circulating that a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot was on its way. Series creator Joss Whedon was announced as an executive producer, with writer Monica Owusu-Breen, best known for Alias and Lost, acting as the new showrunner. When The Hollywood Reporter broke the story, they wrote that the series “features a black actress stepping into the role of Buffy made famous by [Michelle] Gellar.”


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: It appears that the Internet may have been a little too quick to react. (Shocking, I know.) In a tweet, Owusu-Breen clarified that the new Buffy series is more of a revival than a reboot.

Mayonnaise ice-cream is apparently a thing now

THE STORY: Ice Artisan, an ice cream shop in Scotland, recently unveiled a radical new flavour. “I tried to think of another idea but one that is polar opposite from cider,” Kyle Gentleman, the owner of the ice-cream shop told The Independent. “Mayo does just that,” he said, adding that the texture of the ice cream is “creamy and smooth.”


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: Honestly, as far as condiment flavoured ice-cream goes, this probably makes the most sense. Mayo is pretty much just oil emulsified into egg yolks — which is why it works wonders in creating a moist chocolate cake. Sure, it’s not for everyone. But it is DEFINITELY better than a ketchup or mustard flavoured dessert.

Fans got a first look at the new Kim Possible

THE STORY: Disney Channel released the first photo of actor Sadie Stanley as the live-action Kim Possible, a film set for release in 2019.


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: Simmer down everyone, accurate outfits aren’t the only ingredient in a creating a worthy live-action remake. And to all the angry adults on Twitter, let’s not forget: these are the looks of a 16-year-old girl you’re criticizing. You’re seriously mad that a child isn’t bearing her midriff?

The most mature person to react to all this might actually be Sadie Stanley herself, who in response to the casting backlash tweeted (and deleted): “I won’t apologize for the fact that my face/body do not exactly replicate the idealized/over-sexualized image of a cartoon character.”
