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.

There's actually a whole lot of controversy surrounding this Doonesbury comic. Because of the touchy subject material, many papers are moving it from the funnies to the op-ed section, or even removing it completely.

Which brings us to our discussion today--with a cartoon as political as Doonesbury, is this really that far from the norm to the extent to which it shouldn't even be run in papers?

What an edgy concept. Give yourself a pat on the back, marketing team.
