Let's be clear, he tried to explain it, but that doesn't make it not a really, really dumb idea. This YouTube star is getting a lot of flack for his "social experiment" video that involved, according to him, comparing "radical Islamic terrorism" and "radical Christian terrorism". What does that mean, you ask? Apparently it involves having your friend dress up in a real crappy costume and half-heartedly yelling mispronounced Arabic phrases at people before running away. 

Just... just watch it for yourself:



Obviously, most people HATED it. People in the comments of the original video and on Twitter called him out for his terrible judgment.

Blake Lively used a lyric from Sir-Mix-a-Lot's timeless classic, 'Baby Got Back' as a caption on her Instagram. Her claim to have an "L.A. face with an Oakland booty" has upset some people over cultural appropriation.

Not everyone is upset, some have also commented in support of the picture, saying it's not a big deal to quote the song.

Nebraska had a disappointing season, ending with a 5-7 record. Husker fans have a lot of feelings about it too. So when Wide Receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table, he decided to leave her that "tip" instead of a monetary one.

Reilly ended up pulling down the tweet after responding to some heated tweets about it.

It's a bad day to be in the KKK.

The hacktivist collective Anonymous just released the phone numbers and emails of about 40 alleged members of the Ku Klux Klan terrorist group.

You can view the full list here.

Anonymous said in a press release that about 1,000 more KKK members' information would be released in the coming days.

"The aim of this operation is digital. Another cyber war trist, nothing more. We are not violent," the press release states.

"We will release, to the global public, the identities of up to 1000 klan members, Ghoul Squad affiliates and other close associates of various factions of the Ku Klux Klan across the Unites States."

Don't Do That of The Day: The Weeknd Says Taylor Swift Couldn't Stop Stroking His Hair

Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.

Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.

He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"

For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.

Word of advice, Taylor. Next time—just don't.
