@KhushAndOJ, blasting the New York Magazine affiliate for an article it published Tuesday criticizing Priyanka Chopra’s marriage to Nick Jonas. The article, which has since been taken down, called Chopra a “scam artist” who trapped Jonas into matrimony. It was also culturally insensitive, making light of the traditional Indian ceremonies the couple held before their wedding, casting the celebrations as over-the-top and suggesting that Chopra — a successful actress — married Jonas to break into Hollywood.

It’s disturbing, honestly, how easily Lena Dunham is able to make other women’s struggles about her.

@ZodwaMomoza, tweeting after The Hollywood Reporter published an apology from Lena Dunham to Aurora Perrineau for not believing her claim that former “Girls” writer Murray Miller sexually assaulted her.

Well, this is a load of Goop.

@itsgradyy, reacting to a Wall Street Journal article in which the actress appeared to take credit for starting the yoga craze in L.A. Paltrow said that when a receptionist at a yoga studio asked about her experience, she replied, “You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.”

Six French fries? thank u, next.

@JennyLynBader, joking about a New York Times article on potatoes and obesity that quoted Harvard professor Eric Rimm as suggesting that meals would be nicer if they came with “a side salad and six French fries.” The latter part blew up on Twitter, with users adamant that they would never eat just six fries.

Pup punk.

@genevieveew, tweeting about CoyoteVest, a protective item of clothing for pets. The “body armor” coverings are made of Kevlar and feature brightly colored nylon spikes along the spine and additional metal spikes to prevent coyotes and other predators from biting small dogs. Twitter users said the vests, with their bright colors and plentiful spikes, gave pets a “punk rock” look.
