Beyoncé's New Album Took Over the Internet This Week, Now #beyoncethinkpieces is Taking Over Twitter Today

Beyoncé blessed the internet this week with a new album that no one saw coming. Frantic to capitalize on the tsunami of hype (which no one had the chance to do before release), bloggers, hipsters, and internet intellectuals (inter-lectuals?) raced as quickly as they could to dissect the "meaning" behind Queen Bey's new tracks. The result was a cascade of blog posts whose "deep" theories surrounding the album's lyrics sounded about as ridiculous as a middle school English essay.

People Lose It On Twitter Over Sexist and Racist Cartoon That Ends Up Being About Fetish Porn

In light of the unsettling realization about what the cartoon actually is, I can (try and) appreciate the "artist's" intentions here were coming from an allegedly good enough place. But I mean, damn, they should've seen the blowback coming on this one at some point. It's almost impressive. In a single cartoon they didn't fail to hit many of the widely-known trigger points. You know...sexism, feminism, etc.
