Meghan Markle Dragged by Sister: Stop Treating People Like Trash!

With the Royal Wedding date swiftly approaching, excitement continues to mount for fans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Markle’s family, in the mean time, continues to make it clear why none of them — save her mother — were invited.

But this time, it’s the bride-to-be’s sister blasting the royal family for something kind of major. Does she have a point?

As a huge gesture, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have invited the serfs — sorry, the common non-royal people — to attend the wedding from a respectable distance.

But these guests, who will not actually be entering the chapel where the ceremony will take place, have been advised to bring their own food for a picnic lunch … as they won’t even have the option of buying food.

Samantha Markle couldn’t see that and not respond with a tweet.

“For the , instead of shuffling homeless people to the outskirts of Windsor, there should be a tented area with steak dinners, music, job corps, and housing representatives, set up to improve their lives.”

(The 1,200 guests were selected from various charities that the royal couple supports)

Samantha continues her tweet, saying:

“Homeless people are human. Treat them with dignity. Namaste”

Namaste is a traditional Indian greeting often used in the West during yoga.

Samantha followed up that tweet with another, in which she expresses further outrage … allegedly on behalf of these guests.

“Wow do they get sent to dungeons if their children get grouchy and express that they’re hungry with no catering?”

That’s … not something that’s been within the power of the British Royal Family for generations.

“Bring your own picnic basket? Really?”

She compares this wedding to other events, and may be throwing a little shade at Meghan’s career.

“Even low-budget film sets have roach coaches selling burgers and taquitos.”

While the term roach coach is a little much, it’s worth noting that only because of decades of hard-fought union battles are actors and others who work on set entitled to craft services.

In an op-ed in The Guardian that Samantha Markle shared, the writer considers it tacky and hypocritical for the royal family to invite these guests and not feed them.

That opinion piece likens inviting these guests to calling in a bunch of “TV extras” for the wedding ceremony.

Others have voiced similar criticisms, comparing these 1,200 spectators to “props” and calling the invitations themselves and empty gesture.

It’s easy to see where these critics are coming from — after all, you have to think a lot of yourself to consider that allowing others to glimpse you getting married is a “gift.”

That said, this is a royal wedding. Of course people are excited to be invited to attend a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Now, Meghan Markle’s estranged sister has had a lot to say in recent months.

Samantha Markle has been exposed as a lying opportunist by her own ex-husband.

As people watch her go off on Meghan as she approaches her wedding day, it’s easy to understand why her name wasn’t on the guest list.

At the same time, it’s difficult for many to imagine why she won’t give her own sister a moment’s peace.

However, others can understand why she would be so outspoken.

Especially if she could potentially profit from the media coverage.

Samantha Markle has since responded to headlines referring to her “shading” Meghan, writing:

“The world has gone mad and it’s quite comical that the new word for the ‘truth’ is #shade.”

She displays a fundamental misunderstanding. Shade is insulting someone indirectly; it is akin to a backhanded compliment or a subtle jab.

Tea is the word for “truth.” Just so that we’re clear.

Kim Kardashian Gets Dragged (Hard!) for This Easter Photo

Kim Kardashian celebrated the holiest of days on the Catholic calendar by sharing a picture that provoked a pretty similar reaction across the Internet.

And that reaction was this:

HOLY CRAP, THAT’S INAPPOPRIATE!

Yes, the reality star really did share the above photo of her impressive cleavage on the day Jesus Christgot resurrected and came back to life many years ago.

And, yes, she did include a bunny ears emoji as a caption along with it.

But promoting her sensual figure on this special holiday is actually NOT the reason Kim is under intense online scrutiny right now.

Instead, Kardashian is facing a great deal of backlash today for the following Twitter photo and message:

kim kross

“Happy Easter,” Kim wrote as a simple caption to this snapshot, which features a golden cross shimmering in the sky with the sun behind it.

However, religious symbol is lined with a repeating design that looks to be diamonds, leading some pious followers to think Kardashian has missed the spirit of the Easter holiday.

Jesus, after all, was not exactly into wealth and the flaunting of one’s riches.

“Nothing says Easter better than a diamond studded cross,” wrote one annoyed Internet user in response to this picture, while another asked:

“is this a joke?”

The mother of three, who was just praised a few days ago for her March of Our Lives attendance, is now once again considered the self-centered enemy by a handful of critics.

Here’s a selection of other Twitter comments in reply to her fancy diamond image:

kk easter replies

Another person said she thought this was a “meme” on Kim’s part.

But we’re pretty sure she meant it as a serious way to send Easter wishes to her followers.

“Ok but anyone else think this might be a yeezus album cover hint??” asked another user, which really would be pretty lame on Kim’s part.

One really should not use this very holy day as a PR opportunity.

Then again, some might say, one should not appropriate Asian culture in the way Kim has often been accused of doing.

What do you think of this alleged Kim Kardashian scandal?

Is it really a scandal? Did Kim cross a line with this picture of a cross?

Or should some folks just calm down and not overanalyze everything this woman says and does?

Sound off below with your thoughts and…

… Happy Easter!

Arie Luyendyk Jr. Gets Dragged by Bachelor Alums Sean Lowe, Jordan Rodgers

Be warned, folks — there are some The Bachelor Spoilers in this post.

Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s explosive choice — and then his jaw-dropping and frankly horrifying decision a few weeks after the finale was filmed — have been aired.

Now Bachelor alums Jordan Rodgers and Sean Lowe, each living happily ever after with the women they fell in love with on television, are weighing in. And throwing shade.

The Bachelor‘s finale was a wild ride last night, with viewers pulled along a roller coaster of emotions.

Probably the most commonly expressed reactions on Twitter were shock, horror, and disgust. All directed at Arie Luyendyk Jr. Some directed at ABC.

But former stars who found love on camera and kept their relationships intact are speaking out.

During the broadcast, Jordan Rodgers tweeted: “WOW!!! The drama is UNBEARABLE!! … San Antonio’s is only up 1 over Memphis with 9 min to go in the 3rd Quarter.”

As fake-outs go, that one is fine.

Rodgers later commented on how he found love with JoJo Fletcher and won Season 12 of The Bachelorette.

“I mean….some llamas and a cool breeze would’ve been nice, but 120 degrees and some smelly armpits was our story. Wouldn’t change a thing! (Except some stronger antiperspirant) #babe”

JoJo faced a tough choice, but she chose Jordan and it looks like things have worked out just fine for them. They may not be married yet, but they’re happily cohabitating in Texas.

Any Bachelor finale is a time to reflect on how he found love on television, but he has to be thanking his lucky stars that he and JoJo haven’t ended things at all — and especially that they haven’t ended things like Arie did with Becca Kufrin.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are a shining example that yes, you really can find lasting love on camera.

These two have been married for three years and have a young son together.

Sean took to Instagram to reflect on the season … and to promote ethically sourced diamonds.

“Well, Arie’s crazy season has come to an end (kinda) and the finale of course reminded me of my time on The Bachelor when I proposed to Catherine in Thailand.”

And they’ve been together ever since.

“That moment on bended knee, placing the diamond ring on her finger was one of the very best moments of my life.”

Here comes the plug that had him tagging his own post with “#ad.”

“Catherine would have married me regardless of what kind of ring I gave her, but knowing she has an ethically sourced real diamond that she can pass down to our future daughter is pretty special.”

Honestly, you can’t blame the guy for seizing the opportunity to make a little Instagram cash.

Catherine got in on the action, too.

She wrote:

“They said our love wasn’t real. They said we couldn’t make it, and over 4 years (and almost 2 babies!) later, here we are.”

Her post was also an “#ad” … and a Throwback Tuesday.

“Throwing this Tuesday back to that magical moment, and this beautiful ethically-sourced diamond engagement ring.”

Arie picked Becca Kufrin. The season and contest and love story were supposed to be over.

Instead, after a few weeks, Becca endured the worst Bachelor heartbreak when Arie changed his mind.

Arie called ABC and had their cameras come witness him as he ended his relationship with Becca and went running back to the runner-up, Lauren Burnham.

Amazingly, Lauren — who was noted for being fairly quiet all season — took him back.

Becca, in the mean time, was left devastated.

It almost defies belief, but it appears that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are still together.

That said, some wonder if Arie will have yet another change of heart in a few weeks or if Lauren was the one he should have chosen at the finale.

However, some wonder if Arie is any more committed to Lauren than he was to Becca.

Bekah Martinez, one of the Bachelor Nation’s favorite contestants this year and notably the youngest, exposed Arie’s DMs to the world.

Was he just reaching out to his ex … or was he fishing to see if she was still interested? If so, how many other women has he messaged?

Amy Roloff Dragged for Living “In Sin” with Chris Marek

It’s official: 

Amy Roloff cannot win.

In fact, it’s becoming more and more clear with each photo she shares:

Amy Roloff can only lose. Badly.

No matter what Amy posts to her Instagram account, followers find some kind of issue to take up with the Little People, Big World star.

For example, to kick off February, Roloff uploaded an adorable throwback image of her and her twin sons… from WAY back in the day.

And somehow, for some reason, Internet users found to pick apart this totally adorable snapshot.

The most surprising aspect of that nitpick, however, is that the picture in question did NOT feature Chris Marek, a man Amy has been dating for over a year now.

Despite the long-term and serious nature of their romance, fans simply cannot accept Marek in Amy’s life.

They are somehow convinced he’s using Roloff for fame and fortune – despite Amy really not being all that famous or all that rich.

And despite Marek showing no signs that he’s anything but head-over-heels in love with Roloff.

The latest instance of Amy sharing a seemingly harmless photograph, only to be on the receiving end of great disdain for some reason, is the picture above.

It was snapped during Super Bowl Sunday and it features Amy and Chris hanging out with some friends.

Captioned Roloff:

Friends watching the Super Bowl game! Yeah some of us rooted for the Patriots … but those Eagles? They were spectacular. What a game.

And then there was J.T.! Justin Timberlake you were awesome! Fun times w/ friends and a little football.

The the only problem we see with this message is that Justin Timberlake wasn’t really all that awesome.

However, a few other critics found another reason to slam Amy in this instance:

Because it implies, apparently, that she’s living with Marek!

One troll told Amy that Chris isn’t right for her because, well, he doesn’t look enough like her.

No, really. This was an actual criticism of the couple:

lookalike slam

But the critique that took the cruel and hilariously misguided comes from someone who accused Amy of living “in sin” with Chris.

This same person says both individuals are bad Christians who should not be fornicating and who may very well “burn” in Hell.

We’d say this response is funny, because it sort of is.

But it’s really more disturbing than anything, wouldn’t you agree?

sin post

Who looks at photos such as the ones above and comes up with THAT as a reply?!?

Whose mind thinks that way?

It really is pretty sad.

We hope Chris and Amy continue to ignore the haters and to carry on with what appears to be a very strong and happy relationship.

Get to know Marek a little better via the following gallery of photos and facts and please join us in condemning ridiculous critics such as the person above:

Doritos Announces Special Chips for Women, Promptly Gets Dragged

If you're a woman, then there's a good chance you have a hard time doing pretty much everything, right?

It's just that women are so tender and delicate, like tiny little butterflies, completely incapable of living life out here in a man's world.

That's why a few years ago we were so blessed when that company was kind enough to make those special pens for our dainty little lady hands, remember?

After all, if an item isn't small and pink and inoffensive, are we even legally allowed to use it?

The whole issue is a lot to consider, especially if you have a lady brain, which we're pretty sure has been scientifically proven to be smaller than the male brain.

But thankfully, certain brands are acting as problem solvers in this big, loud, scary world.

One of those brands is Doritos.

Last week, PepsiCo's chief executive (PepsiCo owns Doritos) appeared on a podcast and announced that a special lady version of Doritos is in the works.

Seriously.

"As you watch a lot of the young guys eat the chips, they love their Doritos, and they lick their fingers with great glee, and when they reach the bottom of the bag, they pour the little broken pieces into their mouth because they don't want to lose that taste of the flavor," she said.

"Women would love to do the same, but they don't."

And so the plan is to release a new kind of Doritos "for women," with "low-crunch, the full taste profile, not have so much of the flavor stick on the fingers, and how can you put it in a purse? Because women love to carry a snack in their purse."

Obviously this is absolutely ridiculous and just so, so dumb, but Twitter took this plan and ran with it.

See the best reactions to the up and coming lady Doritos below!

1. Revelations

Revelations
What? Women also enjoy snacks? Sometimes even “with great glee”?! Surely not!

2. A Little Confusion

A little confusion
Also why are you eating Doritos in a bra, girl? Live your best life.

3. But Seriously

But seriously
They HAVE to know how dumb this is. Someone, somewhere in that company has to be aware that this could possibly be the stupidest idea in the history of Doritos.

4. Ugh …

Ugh
It hurts, it really does.

5. SMH

Smh
Guess you really never know anyone, huh, Helen?

6. Too Much Space

Too much space
What a time to be alive.

Matt Damon Gets Dragged by Entire Internet for Sexual Misconduct Comments

Matt Damon is generally considered one of the nicest, least controversial actors in Hollywood.

But the star has gone ahead and stuck his typically-genial foot directly into his very handsome mouth.

On Wednesday’s episode of ABC News’ Popcorn With Peter Travers, the actor shared his take on the influx of sexual misconduct allegations that continue to hit the entertainment profession.

And, in doing so, Damon opened himself up to criticism from… well… pretty much everyone.

“I think we’re in this watershed moment,” he said early in the interview, adding:

“I think it’s great. I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories – and it’s totally necessary.”

There you go. Perfect. Damon could have just stopped there and no one would be talking about him right now.

But he didn’t stop there.

With sexual misconduct allegations derailing the careers of such stars as Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, Mario Batali and MANY others, Damon made many attempts to parse various situations.

Referring to a “spectrum of behavior,” he said:

“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?”

In this case, Damon was citing scandals that have enveloped politicians Al Franken (butt patting) and Roy Moore (alleged child molestation).

“Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?” Damon continued, saying he would have “preferred if they had an Ethics Committee investigation.”

However, Damon argued:

“We are so energized to kind of get retribution.”

Most people would not say anyone is energized to get “retribution” right now.

They would say women are energized to speak out against the many times they’ve been wronged; and this should only be applauded.

In one of his most dissected and disappointing statements, Damon said:

“We live in this culture of outrage and injury, and, you know, we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, ‘Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.’

“You know what I mean?”

Not really.

One can not be perfect and also know how to treat a woman with respect at all times.

Among those who have dragged Damon for his comments is Minnie Driver, who co-starred with the actor in Good Will Hunting.

She linked to his controversial interview on Twitter and just wrote “God, God seriously?”

Others, meanwhile, have said the following:

damon tweets

Damon, who was close to Harvey Weinstein after the producer helped get Good Will Hunting made, dug himself into an even deeper hole when citing individual examples.

Admitting he doesn’t “know all the details” about Louis C.K., for example, Damon said the following:

“I don’t do deep dives on this, but I did see his statement…

“When he came out and said, ‘I did this; I did these things; these women are all telling the truth,’ I just remember thinking, ‘Well, that’s the sign of somebody who…well, we can work with that.'”

Ummm…. there are two problems with this argument:

  1. CK was accused of pulling out his penis and masturbating in front of many women. Damon could have taken a few easy second to research this online.
  2. CK only released his statement AFTER reports came out that basically confirmed these actions.

Damon is concerns that “the clearer signal to men and to younger people is [to] deny it, because if you take responsibility for what you did, your life’s going to get ruined.

“I mean, look, as I said – all of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum.

‘And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? That’s what needs to happen. OK?”

MD

SIGH.

Look, yes, there’s a difference between outright rape and a few misguided comments. No one denies this.

But one could argue that a culture that looks past the latter on a continual basis contributes to more of the former because there because a general acceptance of women as nothing but sex objects.

Moreover, this just isn’t the time, Matt.

There have been too many instances of too much heinous behavior around Hollywood. This isn’t the time to get up on a pedestal and try to teach America about grey areas.

But Damon focused on social media in his interview and lamented today’s culture of presumed guilt, saying:

“The moment a claim is made… I would be scorched earth. I’d go, ‘I don’t care if it costs $ 10 million to fight this in court with you for 10 years; you are not taking my name from me. You are not taking my name and my reputation from me. I’ve worked too hard for it.

“And I earned it. You can’t just blow me up like that.'”

“Once a claim is made, there will no longer be settlements. That’s my prediction, just based on what I’ve seen.”

“Isn’t that a good thing?” Travers countered, noting many female had been unable to share their stories because of nondisclosure agreements.

“One hundred percent,” Damon responded, adding that “every woman who’s coming forward with one of these stories needs to be listened to and heard.”

Boom. Yes. Done.

That’s all you had to say in the first place, Matt Damon.

Kate Gosselin Dares to Share Pics of Daughters, Gets Dragged by Trolls. HARD.

Darn you, Internet.

You’ve really gone ahead and done it now.

You’ve made us feel bad for Kate Gosselin.

Over the past few weeks, hatred for the reality star and mother of eight has seemed to hit near-record numbers, as Gosselin cannot share anything online without hearing it from a bunch of trolls.

Just a few weeks ago, for example, Gosselin posted a few photos online of her kids in their Halloween costumes.

We’re pretty sure every single celebrity alive does this.

And yet followers called out Kate for the snapshots, mostly because they did not include son Collin, who has been enrolled in a program away from home for behavioral issues.

Details regarding his status remain scarce, which has prompted haters to bring up him every chance they get.

Gosselin even received backlash, as it relates to Collin, when she shared throwback photos of her twin girls on the occasion of their 17th birthday.

And now Kate has gone ahead and shared new throwback pictures, this time of daughter Alexis.

Along with the cute snapshot above, the Kate Plus 8 star wrote:

The girls and I were looking through old pics the other night together…reliving our MANY fun times over the years…

it’s cute when your teenagers screech about how cute they were and play argue over ‘who was the cutest.’

To me, they were and are all equally ‘edible’ and adorable and I told them so. They then tried to convince me to ‘eat them first’! It’s always a competition in a big family, I tell you!

Anyway, there are many, but these pics of Lex make me laugh every time I come across them! How can you not?

She’s always been the perfect dose of humor when I need it most… on this day, when she was 5, she entertained me while I showered!

Pretty basic and definitely harmless, right?

Nope, wrong apparently.

Yes, some followers showed Gosselin support and clearly appreciated this cute snapshot:

lex tweet

“She is so precious! Where did the time go?” asked another fan.

Others, however, definitely seemed to be focused on the wrong thing.

“Wait, you take your phone into the shower,” inquired a confused follower, while a second person chimed in with a similar take:

“You took your phone into the shower or bath? Um yeah ok kate.”

lex in shower

These, of course, are mostly mundane issues.

The true trolls, though, didn’t just inquire about Collin and his whereabouts.

They accused Kate of not liking her sons as much as her daughters!

For real:

where are boys?

Look, it takes a lot for us to be on Team Kate Gosselin.

We mostly see her as a greedy, self-serving and manipulative annoyance.

But come on now.

We’re not gonna pick on Kate just because she shares some precious pictures of her kids.

What’s the alternative? What else would she do on Instagram? Go all Kylie Jenner on us and pose nearly naked?

God forbid, right?

So you see: it could be a lot worse. Remember that.
