I don't care what PETA says. Steve Irwin never harmed or harassed animals. Yes he did crazy things and put his life on the line countless times, but he still never harmed another living creature.— Skylar (@TorshiwaseShai) February 24, 2019
He also never held grudges on any animal that harmed him. He's a good bloke. Proof pic.twitter.com/sxiJridZNM
Yea....no. His methods may not have been ideal but his enthusiasm for animals and for their protection was incredibly transparent. He taught a lot of people about nature and the environment."Harassing a ray"?Unless the Irwin family has shown you the footage, complete speculation.— TheGamingBeaver (@AGamingBeaver) February 23, 2019
Steve Irwin saved the lives of countless animals in his sanctuaries. He helped educate millions globally about animals’ needs and ways of life. He loved animals and cared for them greatly. You do some good work helping animals PETA, but how about some balance and more respect... https://t.co/olpLCvKepN— Dan Clark (@DanClarkSports) February 22, 2019
I feel it’s safe to assume that I speak for all Aussie’s when I say this, PETA you fucked up real bad and talking shit about our beautiful Steve is like a personal and vicious attack on every single Aussie......you just started war with an entire country!— Mum thats a bad word! (@Christielee2806) February 23, 2019
So your response here is this Human deserved what he got and is better off dead?! You are a disgusting organizationand and should be absolutely ashamed!! He was a FATHER and a HUSBAND and did WAY more for wild life conservation than the IDIOT INTERN hired to write this tweet!— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) February 24, 2019
I'm an Australian wildlife rescue volunteer. #SteveIrwin and his family gave an awful lot of quiet, unpublicised support to organisations like mine. He was a serious conservationist & did the hard & unglamourous work required. PETA are attention-seeking posers by comparison— Greg (@humbleminion) February 23, 2019
Apparently y’all would have Chris Evans sit 5 feet away and just watch Regina King struggle.
@JustSayRad, tweeting after the “Captain America” actor helped actress Regina King partway up the Oscars stage during Sunday’s ceremony after she stumbled over her dress. Though a majority of Twitter users saw the gesture as compassionate and chivalrous, others said Evans did “the bare minimum” and that the fanfare over his helping hand took away from King’s win for best supporting actress.
Chris Evans is the reminder that chivalry is still alive. What a sweetheart!— Olga Parera (@olgaparera) February 25, 2019
Look, I love Chris Evans too, but the whole world fainting over a guy helping a woman up a step shows just how low the bar is for straight white men.— Saskatchewan Assman (@bradcandoit) February 25, 2019
Y’all know I love that yeeyaw man Chris Evans but why are people acting like he cured cancer bc he helped a woman up the steps like any decent human being would’ve done?? It was cute but why all this fanfare??— Amizo (@AfricanKhaIeesi) February 25, 2019
1) What is Muffin Break? and 2) Who expects people to willingly work for free?
Just walked into Muffin Break and demanded a free muffin.— Jordan Raskopoulos (@JordanRasko) February 24, 2019
@JordanRasko, joking after Natalie Brennan, manager of Australian chain Muffin Break, claimed that fewer millennials are doing unpaid work to advance their careers due to an “inflated” sense of self. Brennan’s generational bashing and suggestion that not paying workers was OK sparked backlash on Twitter. She has since apologized.
Hmm, pretty hungry. Might go to Muffin Break and ask them to give me 200 free muffins because it'll be good experience for them. Anyone want anything?— Josh Butler (@JoshButler) February 23, 2019
Dear #MuffinBreak. I’m not sure your food and coffee will provide the sustenance I need. I am, however, willing to give you the opportunity to provide me with free food for 6 months. If satisfied, I will happily give you a written recommendation you can use to persuade others. 👍🏻— Simon Hunter (@SimonHu49509082) February 23, 2019
The “entitled millennials” #MuffinBreak are exploiting for free labour in the name of “career advancement” (LOL) are the same young people struggling to manage full time study, work, rent, groceries and 10 years worth of debt (on average) #Auspol— Senator Jordon Steele-John (@Jordonsteele) February 24, 2019
Muffin break view of millennials is offensive and plain wrong. They think they’re doing workers a favour by letting them work for zilch. Muffin break needs to comply with law, apologise to young workers and, I dare say, make a grovelling apology in order to save their business.— Brendan O'Connor (@BOConnorMP) February 24, 2019
If I knew where my nearest Muffin Break was, I would boycott it— Paul Karp (@Paul_Karp) February 23, 2019
Mason Rupke’s dedication to naps is admirable.
@KateWelshofer, reacting to a now-viral video of 4-year-old Mason Rupke during his hockey practice. Mason’s father recently mic’d up his son to find out what he thought about while on the ice. In the six-minute video, Mason chats endlessly, proclaiming, “I’m gonna have a nap” after falling over, tells a coach “my legs are tired” to try to get out of a drill, and fantasizes over his post-practice McDonald’s meal.
Can this be a weekly podcast or something?— MJ🍕 (@M_J1512) February 23, 2019

In what backward world is that Serena Williams cartoon NOT racist?
@callapilla, criticizing the Australian Press Council’s ruling that a 2018 cartoon in the Herald Sun was not racist in its Jim Crow-like depiction of Serena Williams and thus didn’t breach its standards. Twitter users suggested the ruling may have been a result of there being no people of color on the press council.
Would be interesting to see how many black or poc journalists are on the actual press council.— Sarah Malik (@sarahbmalik) February 24, 2019
