A Reporter Complained That Ciara Needed to 'Cover Up' During her Performance and People Are Not Having It

Ciara wore a fancy dress to sing the anthem before the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night. It seems like a pretty normal situation but Bonnie Bernstein of Campus Insiders had a problem with Ciara's choice of clothing. She called her out, using the classic "think of the children" as justification for telling her to "cover up". The response to her Tweet has been overwhelmingly negative.

Open Letter of The Day: Mom With Multiple Multiple Sclerosis Responds to Nasty Note Left on Her Car

News flash: Not everyone who is disabled uses a wheelchair.

Some people don't seem to get this, and they write unnecessary notes to leave on disabled people's vehicles.

Australian mom Justine Van Den Borne, who has Multiple Sclerosis, received a note on her care from an anonymous bully who apparently thought she shouldn't be using a handicapped parking space.

Since the note was anonymous, she took to Facebook and penned an open letter so people understand how such cowardly acts make disabled people feel.

To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre- I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35. Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life. My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn't ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed. On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day. Thank you for ruining that. You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can't walk properly. I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to. A disability doesn't always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be. Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42. Before you ruin another persons day remember you don't know everything and just because you can't see it it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other.

Think before you post notes on cars, people. It's that simple.

Outrage of The Day: A Mom is Super Upset About The Sex Message on Her Kid's Chipotle Cup

And on today's episode of "Everything Offends Me," a woman is really upset at the message on her kid's Chipotle cup.

Did the cup encourage the child to club baby seals? Set fire to a school? Join ISIS?

Nope. It just had two words that made the mom feel uncomfortable: reproductive sex.

OK, maybe out of context these words seem odd on a Chipotle cup. But not if you know anything about the artist that designed the cup.

The artist, Anthony Doerr, describes the cup like this:

Tattoo Earth's 4.5-billion-year timeline onto your arm, shoulder to fingertip, and your upper arm will get nothing but geologic mayhem: meteorites, magma, acid rain. Life won't begin until your bicep, and from there to your wrist it's all single-celled, oceangoing stuff. Reproductive sex won't show up until your wristwatch, and creatures that are finally big enough to see—tubes and fronds and weird Precambrian plant-animals—will crisscross the back of your hand.

Trilobites paddle across your palm; ancient forests grow from your knuckles; dinosaurs wind around the joints at the ends of your fingers. Mammals burrow into your cuticles.

Orangutans, arrowheads, Cleopatra, the names of the stars—they all have to fit on the sliver of fingernail at the end of your longest finger.

So the artwork is an arm showing how the world came to be through evolution. And reproductive sex would only show up around the wrist.

Outrage averted.

Joke of The Day: People Are Mad About What Chris Rock Had to Say About Lamar Odom

Some people just can't take a joke, especially people on Twitter.

Comedian Chris Rock (key word: comedian) tweeted a meme that poked fun at NBA star Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Odom is currently recovering and undergoing procedures for problems linked to his recent drug overdose.

Since the life-threatening incident, Kardashian and Odom have put their divorce on hold.

Here's the comedian's tweet:

A lot of people took the tweet for what it is—a joke. But others were outraged with the timing of the tweet.

Lighten up, Internet. There's probably something else out there you can be upset about.
