North Carolina has become infamous for passing a bill in March that blocks measures to protect members of the LGBTQ community from discrimination. This has caused many famous musicians, like Bruce Springsteen, to cancel their concerts. Paypal has even canceled an expansion of the company that was supposed to open in North Carolina. Now, people in the state of North Carolina can't even look at porn. 

That's right, a popular website for sexy media called XHamster has blocked all computers from North Carolina. Instead of seeing... whatever it is they were searching for, they'll see a blank screen. Eventually, they plan to replace that blank screen with a petition to repeal the law.

A Florida woman was being held hostage in her home by her boyfriend on Tuesday, and a Pizza Hut helped save her life.

Cheryl Treadway and her kids were being threatened by a man named Ethan Nickerson at knifepoint and were not allowed to leave.

Nickerson also took away her cell phone, but he let her use it briefly to order a pizza, according toMyFox Tampa.

That’s when she used some quick thinking to write “911 hostage help” in the comments section of her order.



A chef at the Pizza Hut noticed the strange message and the restaurant quickly alerted the police.

The suspect was then arrested and charged, while Treadway and her kids escaped to safety.

This story is very similar to another real-life incident which was used in a Superbowl ad this year to raise awareness about domestic violence.
