Over the weekend, reports emerged that the Ku Klux Klan passed out fliers and warnings indicating they would enact "lethal force" against Ferguson protesters should they display aggression in response to the grand jury hearing of the Michael Brown shooting.

Hactivist group Anonymous did not take kindly to these threats.

As of the morning November 16, the Ku Klux Klan still had control over their own tweets, as you're seeing from their official Twitter feed here (who knew that abject hate could be so tuned in to social media trends?). Just later that evening Anonymous seized the Twitter account to use to their own ends, changing its profile picture to their own iconic image and tweeting things like this:



The moral of the story is the same as always: Just don't bother getting on Anonymous's bad side.

Lindsay Lohan really wanted the UK and the EU to stay together you guys. Unfortunately, it seems like she deleted her amazing journalistic endeavor so you'll have to be satisfied with the scraps that we dug up from the internet. Watching the former starlet, who is still kinda clueless about the geography of the UK, become a "voice of reason" to some people is still pretty hilarious.

This weekend saw a disturbing hashtag trend made in promotion of the newest movie in "The Purge" franchise (you know, the movie that sets its premise on the idea that people would turn into violent Freudian monsters if crime was legal for a day rather than just like... deal with their problems like adults). The idea was to promote users to go wild and free on the social media network for a day, which inevitably led to jerks exposing graphically violent content - or even worse, nude photos of (often underage) ex-girlfriends.

This led some to parody the whole event outright:





Meanwhile, others got right to the heart of the matter:



Maybe instead we should have just purged social media from our system entirely?
