As soon as this Sprite advertisement was spotted, people started to complain. Why, maybe because instead of saying truths that are #BrutallyRefreshing, as the campaign intended, it really amounted to some cheap jokes that are #BrutallySexist. 

The responses were equal parts "Sprite, you should be ashamed!" and "Did no one in charge of marketing read over this and think that it could be offensive and/or sexist? Really? NO ONE?!?"

Well, that got awkward.

While Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg were promoting their new movie, American Ultra, Stewart had a little fun at her costars expense. The pair were tasked with interviewing each other about their roles, but something was a little off about the questions Eisenberg received.

Instead of "normal" interview questions, Stewart asked Eisenberg the questions she would normally receive. You know, sexist questions about fashion and pregnancy.

Eisenberg, in his normal fashion, got really uncomfortable. It seems like he was probably in on the joke, but it was still fun to watch him squirm.

Good job, Kristen! It seems like a little interview payback was in order...
