Everything that Upset the Internet this Week

Happy Friday! It’s finally the weekend, which means you’ll likely be sitting on a patio arguing about politics and pop culture with your friends. (Or maybe you’ll crawl under the covers and troll the Internet with savage comments. We support you either way!)

If you plan on getting into a verbal brawl, you better to be informed! (Not that that has stopped anyone on the Internet before…) From a president who thinks confederate statues are beautiful to mayo in a coffee cup, here’s a roundup of the controversies that rocked the Internet this week.

Kendall Jenner’s first Adidas ad

THE STORY: People are angry that Kendall Jenner is representing Adidas because she’s a model, not an athlete.


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: Were people this angry when Gigi Hadid became a Reebok ambassador? Adidas Originals (vs Adidas the sportswear brand) is typically characterized as streetwear—the brand is in no way worn exclusively by athletes. It seems that backlash and controversy come with anything the Jenner/Kardashian klan attaches their name to.


Trump defends Civil War-era statues

THE STORY: Last weekend’s violent white supremacy rally in Charlottesville protested the city’s plan to remove a Confederate general statue. On Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also…the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced”


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: Trump used language very similar to that of white supremacists to argue that the statues of slavers should remain in place. Let’s not forget: confederate monuments are not just symbols of racial hate—they’re symbols of anti-American rebellion.

Man on Twitter put mayo in his coffee

THE STORY: Twitter user @_SonOfADeitch looked to his followers for some kitchen advice: “I’m out of milk & I’m making boxed Mac & cheese. Can I substitute cottage cheese for the milk?”  A man named Jim Salisbury responded to the tweet and wrote, “I once used mayo in coffee when out of half and half. not half bad.”


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: This is insane. Jim what is wrong with you?!?!?

Dylan Sprouse cheated on his model girlfriend

THE STORY: Dylan Sprouse (twin of the more famous Cole Sprouse) has had been dating model Dayna Frazer for three years. Last week, she deleted all traces of him on her social media and posted a pic of her crying to her Insta story, captioned, “When you find out your bf cheated on you lol.”


RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RAGE: Cheating isn’t cool—but let’s not judge. Three sides of every story right? After being victim to some unpleasant online backlash, Dylan tweeted: “I will say this and only this: by adhering to an assumption based on limited information, you neglect the complicated nature of this issue.” He later tweeted, “This is complicated and it will remain complicated, but those who know me and who have known me, know well enough what kind of person I am.”

True Dyl, we feel you. Breakups suck, so whatever happened we’re sad the two have split.
