A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme.

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:

What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”

“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.

“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”

Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.

But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:

"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."

You remember Sad Pawpaw, the meme that made everyone go call their grandparents? Well, now a different grandkid has Tweeted an update. Now everyone is invited to Pawpaw's cookout!

Apparently the plan is to raise money to send all those grandkids to school, even the ones who didn't come to dinner. 

Twitter user @kalssseyharmon shared her lonely cookout with her Grandfather, lovingly dubbed "Pawpaw" on Twitter. The internet was suddenly reminded to call their own grandparents so, instead they Tweeted about how sad this Pawpaw situation made them. After all, no one should have to cook 12 burgers just to have one person show up.

Washington D.C. surprised everyone by declaring an unprecedented total shutdown of Metro services for at least 24 hours. This is for everyone's safety, it's an emergency evaluation of some dangerous electrical problems. That still leaves everyone with plenty of extra time to use gifs and memes to comment on the traffic as they make their way to work by car, bus or foot instead. Even some Twitter accounts for city services are getting in on the "fun".

Chris Christie made an appearance next to Donald Trump with such a somber and uncomfortable demeanor that some people started to suspect he'd been kidnapped. The hashtag #FreeChristie was even created. His pitiful expression inspired the internet to rally around him to ask, "You okay there, buddy?" in the only way they know how... memes.
