Betsy DeVos has 10 yachts and a family fortune. One was set free and Twitter had no sympathy.
Thoughts and prayers for Betsy Devos, who suffered minor damage to 10% of her family yacht fleet when the $40 million vessel SeaQuest was untied and set adrift.— Alexandra Erin and Error Pining (@AlexandraErin) July 26, 2018
Hopefully this will not distract her from her important work of taking back the education system from the elites.
Saw a story about Betsy Devos’s yacht being damaged and was like “that’s not cool” and then read she owns NINE OTHER LUXURY BOATS. How is this person supposed to relate and empathize for literally anyone outside of the 1%.— Brian Kearney-Spaw (@BrianKspaw) July 26, 2018
Anne Hathaway penned a powerful and accurate post on Nia Wilson that called out white privilege.
@AprilM0, reacting to actress Anne Hathaway’s Instagram post honoring Nia Wilson, a young black woman who was murdered Sunday on the San Francisco Bay Area transit system by a white male suspect. Hathaway urged white people to recognize “the truth that ALL black people fear for their lives DAILY.”
Can we restate how majorly Anne Hathaway turned it on IG yesterday for Nia Wilson? She set the template for how to speak out as a white woman.— Saint Shannon (@shannon_sense) July 26, 2018
The fact that Anne Hathaway spoke up in light of Nia Wilson speaks volume! Knowing your privilege and speaking up for blacks is needed. No matter how many times we speak up, riot and believe our actions are being heard... they aren’t being valued. She took a stand for us 🖤— Markell Goode (@MarkellCreative) July 26, 2018
Remember the phrase “getting to third base?” It means anything now.
third base is making him listen to your sad songs playlist and explaining all the varied, overly specific reasons why each song makes you a different type of sad— ellie schnitt (@holy_schnitt) July 24, 2018
@holy_schnitt, joking about the “new” bases in romantic relationships. Third base is often seen as the most intimate and vulnerable step in a relationship. Twitter users have taken to creating new definitions for the term.
third base is when you tell your girlfriend that you used to own toe shoes— Vince (@V_Quach) July 25, 2018
A Twitter user had a woman run up to her seeking help to escape a stalker. Other women chimed in with their frighteningly similar stories.
@SalomeMedici, reacting to @gabriellarichh’s story of a woman being followed who asked for help. @gabriellarichh immediately hugged the woman, and the stalker left. The story prompted other women to promise assistance, while others told similar stories of being stalked.
This really happens. One day I saw this girl walking alone and this man was following her for like 2 blocks so I walked up to her, told her why and dude just crossed the street and went the other way. Shit really not safe— Déa 🌞 (@xo_smokey) July 17, 2018
We finally have the answers (and jokes) we need to WHY guys wear Fleece Vests.
@nblundo, tweeting about a Wall Street Journal article that examined the trend of mostly male employees in the corporate world wearing fleece vests over a nice button-down shirt. The article spoke with many men who stood by the vest’s practicality, such as one saying it “hides your belly” as one ages.
