@MarkHarrisNYC, discussing the homophobic tweets by Kevin Hart that led to him stepping down Friday as the host of the upcoming Academy Awards. In response to defenders of Hart who said his 2011 tweets had been dug up maliciously, many noted that it’s easy to find old tweets.

She assigned pricey outfits (including Louboutin heels) based on guests’ weight and also asked them to bring a change of formalwear. After her Facebook post was leaked and went viral, the bride announced a “Polygraph Party” to find out who the “snitch” was.

This is technically a very prolonged bow.
