Buffalo Wild Wings Twitter Gets Hacked, Racist and Vulgar Tweets Deleted

Buffalo Wild Wings just became the latest victim of an apparent Twitter hacking — perhaps by the Russians, perhaps by a rogue employee — but either way … it wasn’t very nice. The sports bar franchise’s official Twitter page fired off several…

Roseanne Barr Breaks Silence on Sitcom Cancelation, Tweets Up a Storm Once Again

Less than 24 hours after claiming she was leaving Twitter, Roseanne Barr has returned to Twitter.

This time, however, the controversial comedian has fewer racist “jokes” to make at the expense of African-Americans.

On Tuesday morning, Roseanne wrote that former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett was what would happen if the “Muslim brotherhood [and] planet of the apes had a baby.”

The actress eventually deleted this horrible insult, but not before it spread around the Internet and ABC reacted by canceling her sitcom.

In a statement, ABC Presidence Channing Dungey said that the huge ratings for Season 10 of the rebooted series no longer warranted a Season 11, not when the show’s star had expressed such inappropriate views.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said Dungey.

This network decision has been applauded all non-racists around the globe.

Roseanne, meanwhile, issued an apology shortly after garnering an extreme amount of backlash online, Tweeting:

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me – my joke as in bad taste.

Few folks are forgiving Barr, however, considering her history of being an awful person.

Now, in the wake of this controversy, Roseanne has walked back her claim that she was leaving social media and commented at length on her show’s cancelation.

“Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet,” Barr wrote, adding:

“I will be on Joe Rogan’s podcast friday.”

She was far from done, however.

“I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me,” she added, prior to making an excuse for her racism:

“It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible [sic].

“I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”

Aside from the lame ambien defense, this may sound all well and good to some.

Roseanne is clearly sorry, right?

Except she has since re-Tweeted a large number of Conversative voices who have, indeed, defended her position and her opinions and think this is yet another Liberal conspiracy.

To wit:

Roseanne Barr RTs

In a now-deleted tweet, Barr also wrote an apology to Jarrett once again, addressing President Obama’s close friend as follows:

“@ValerieJarrett I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!”

Jarrett, meanwhile, has mostly taken the high road in response to her name randomly and terribly being bantered about in this fashion.

“I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment,” she said yesterday in response, adding that Roseanne’s remarks reflect a greater issue in society than her hurt feeling:

“I’m fine. I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense.

“The person who is walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse, or run across the street, or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation — the talk — as we call it.

“As you say, those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day.”

barr stuff

But back to Barr:

In a series of other Tweets she has since erased, Barr repeats the stance of one follower who thinks ABC is acting in a hypocritical manner.

“I’m calling on @ABCNetwork @Disney to uphold their “standards” by firing @JoyVBehar for calling Christians mentally ill,” this person (and Roseanne) wrote.

“You can’t treat @therealroseanne one way because she supports @realDonaldTrump & allow Joy Behar to remain employed. #BoycottABC #StandWithRoseanne #Roseanne.”

But then after this, Roseanne said:

Please don’t start all of that boycott abc stuff-I’m not a censor and they have the right to do what they wish. It’ all ok. thanks tho guys.

Roseanne was the number-one scripted series of last season with a 6.4 rating among 18-49-year olds, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Wrap reports that Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT have pulled all reruns of the series.

Based on her Twitter spree last night, it’s very possible that Roseanne really was on ambien when she originally Tweeted about Jarrett and was also on ambien in these rambling responses to the scandal.

But plenty of celebrities take sleeping pills and/or other types of medication.

It says something about Roseanne’s personal beliefs that when she does so, this filth comes out of her virtual mouth.

Tyler Baltierra’s Latest Tweets Have Fans Concerned About His Health

Tyler Baltierra is one of the more beloved husbands in the Teen Mom franchise in large part due to how candid he’s been regarding his struggles with mental illness.

Last month, Baltierra revealed that he suffers from bipolar disorder, and he was widely applauded for helping to de-stigmatize the condition by discussing it openly.

Of course, now fans are on the alert and many have been looking for signs of a manic or depressive episodes in every word that Tyler posts on his social media accounts.

Rumors that Baltierra is suicidal have been circulating for the past week, and it seems his latest tweets have only led to increased concern from some of his followers.

The strange thing is, the tweet that’s attracting the most attention sees Tyler revealing one of his favorite therapeutic activities.

“I have always loved writing & as a kid I used to write poetry, I had pages full of it!” Baltierra wrote.

“But I gave it up when I got a little older & ended up throwing it all away. I’ve been inspired recently to pick it back up & I’m on a mission to refill my notebook! #SelfCare #MyOwnTherapy”

On its own, the tweet would likely give the impression that Tyler is in a very good place these days.

But he posted it along with some snippets of his poetry, and fans are worried about the references to suicide and self-harm that appear in Baltierra’s verse.

“From on top of this mountain, I’ll cut these ties, not my wrists,” he writes in one poem.

“I’ll fight with these words, instead of my fists,” he continues.

“I’ll take this newfound strength, leap & fly out of this cage & I’ll make sure I’m the only one who’s in control & I’m the only one who’s turning the page!”

It sounds to us like Tyler’s feeling empowered and optimistic these days, but many of his followers just can’t get over that reference to self-harm.

The issue, it seems, is that suicide is on Tyler’s mind at all, even as an option that he staunchly rejects.

Ever since he went public with his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, fans have been on the lookout for the jarring mood swings that often characterize the disorder.

And many are concerned that self-harm will remain in Baltierra’s thoughts during one of his inevitable depressive lows.

It’s not hard to see why they’re concerned, but ultimately, this amounts to armchair psychotherapy from people who don’t know enough about Tyler or his condition to make predictions about what will happen next.

Watch Teen Mom OG online for more on Tyler and wife Catelynn Lowell’s struggles with mental illness.

Southwest Flight Makes Emergency Landing, Passenger Tweets CRAZY Details

WARNING TO ALL READERS:

You may not want to read the rest of this post if you ever want to fly in an airplane ever again…

sw plane

On Tuesday afternoon, a Southwest Airlines flight en route from LaGuardia Airport in New York to Dallas made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of the engines blew and a passenger got nearly sucked out of a window as a result.

As confirmed by a map via FlightAware, Southwest Flight 1380 was headed west/southwest when it took a sharp turn east, back towards Philadelphia.

Accounts from passengers on board have confirmed that an engine on the left side of the plane exploded mid-flight, causing shrapnel to fly across the aisle.

Incredibly, only one person was injured from the blast and he/she was tended to by medical personnel aboard the aircraft.

“We are aware that Southwest flight #1380 from New York La Guardia (LGA) to Dallas Love Field (DAL) has diverted to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL),” said Southwest in a statement, adding:

“We are in the process of transporting Customers and Crew into the terminal. The aircraft, a Boeing 737-700, has 143 Customers and five Crewmembers onboard.

“We are in the process of gathering more information.

“Safety is always our top priority at Southwest Airlines, and we are working diligently to support our Customers and Crews at this time.”

sw statement

As news continues to break regarding exactly what happened, passengers have started to share photos from the plane on social media.

For example, Kristopher Johnson snapped the picture below and shared it to Twitter, thanking the Southwest crew “for a great job getting us to the ground safely after losing in engine.”

Marty Martinez, meanwhile, shared a Facebook live video that depicts him with an oxygen mask on.

“Something is wrong with our plane! It appears we are going down! Emergency landing!!” he says in the footage.

blown engine

Martinez later talked to CBS News after the plane had landed in Philadelphia, explaining something went wrong about a half hour into the trip.

“All of a sudden, we heard an explosion and I come to find out that the engine exploded on the left side of the plane,” he said.

“That explosion caused one of the windows to explode in row 17 of the plane, which was just two aisles over from me.”

Added Martinez:

“I thought I was cataloging the last moments of my existence. It was absolutely terrifying.”

scary flight

Then there was Todd Baur, the father of one passenger onboard, who told NBC Philadelphia that a woman was nearly sucked out of the broken window.

She “was partially … was drawn out towards the out of the plane” and “was pulled back in by other passengers,” Baur said, adding that she was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Philadelphia Airport has Tweeted that passengers should expect delays following an order (since lifted) from the Federal Aviation Administration that had been preventing flights en route to Philadelphia from taking off.

Crazy, right?

While this near-catastrophe might scare some folks away some flying, it may actually encourage others to feel even safer in the sky.

After all… an engine actually blew up and the plane was still able to land safely, with no fatalities.

Pretty amazing, no?

UPDATE: The FAA has issued its statement on what happened to Southwest flight 1380.

It reads as follows:

Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 landed at Philadelphia International Airport this morning after the crew reported damage to one of the aircraft’s engines, as well as the fuselage and at least one window.

The aircraft, which departed from New York LaGuardia Airport, diverted to Philadelphia, where it landed at 11:20 a.m. Eastern.

Passengers exited the aircraft using air stairs. Please contact local emergency response officials for information on the condition of the passengers.

The FAA is investigating the incident and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation.

Stormy Daniels Tweets About Sleeping with Trump

Donald Trump is having a no good, very bad … couple of years. And things seem to be poised to get worse.

Stormy Daniels is suing Trump, as her legal team believes that the NDA that prevents her from speaking directly about their alleged affair is void for multiple reasons.

But even if she can’t speak out directly, she’s still finding ways to talk about their alleged affair.

Word to the wise:

Do not antagonize Stephanie “Stormy Daniels” Clifford on social media.

She is not going to take that lying down. (No joke intended)

A Trump supporter took to Twitter to voice their condemnation of Stormy and attempt to slut-shame her for being a sex-worker. Many Trump supporters, embarrassed by yet another scandal surrounding the Orange In Chief, hope to intimidate her into silence.

This backfired spectacularly, as Stormy — while avoiding disclosing any details — hit back with a tweet of her own.

Stormy Daniels Tweets about Trump Affair

“Technically I didn’t sleep with the POTUS 12 years ago. There was no sleeping (hehe) and he was just a goofy reality TV star. But I digress…People DO care that he lied about it, had me bullied, broke laws to cover it up, etc. And PS…I am NOT going anywhere. xoxoxo”

Note that she accuses Trump of lying, bullying, and law-breaking (things that most Americans have observed him doing regularly for years), but very carefully does not say anything about sex.

She simply says that she did not sleep with him.

You have to love seeing her turn that euphemism on its head and use it literally.

She is, as the youths say, serving up that tea.

Stormy continued when asked if she was worried about being unlikable by being involved in this political scandal.

“Do you seriously think I give a flying f–k if people ‘like’ me? I’d have become a kindergarten teacher if that was my goal in life. And for someone who doesn’t want to ‘see’ me, you took the time to come to my twitter and type a message to me? OK”

If you’ve ever been friends with an elementary education major, you know the type well.

Someone then replied, asking if, technically, her job is to make people like her.

“Technically, it is my job to get dicks to grow…which I have a pretty good record of doing judging by my long career in front of/behind the camera in porn. I got some cool awards, too!”

Sex workers don’t need to be ashamed of their jobs, and Stormy has good reason to be proud of her work.

Many have assumed that Stormy Daniels is looking for a big payday to tell her story, but she is shooting down this rumor.

“I was NOT paid a dime for the interview with 60 Minutes (or anything else relating to telling this story).”

That really quashes a lot of arguments that she’s just money-hungry and wasn’t satisfied with the $ 130,000 in hush money.

It sounds like Stormy’s real goal is to expose the truth.

People have tried to degrade her online, but she’s not having it.

“I really question the priorities of someone more worried about the quality of a pornstar than a president. The only decisions I’m really responsible for is what position I want to do next & what color lipgloss best compliments my costar’s penis. SMH”

Don’t come for her, folks. She will roast you online. Most of the critical tweets that she quotes have since been deleted.

A number of Trump supporters shrug off this story (from Stormy and from other brave women who are coming forward), saying that she’s simply lying.

We suppose that she could be making this up … but that’s not what Stormy’s lie-detector test results say.

See, she took a polygraph back in 2011 to verify her story, though the interview was only published this year.

(Trump is accused of using this tactic of using money and connections to bury stories before they’re ever released, often through media companies)

In the polygraph test, Stormy answered “yes” to questions like:

“Around July 2006, did you have vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump?” and “Around July 2006, did you have unprotected sex with Donald Trump?”

The polygraph confirmed her answer for both.

Of course, polygraphs can be beaten, but that usually requires careful training and preparation. One struggles to imagine what her motive might have been for doing so in 2011.

That would have been a lot of trouble to undergo just to slightly embarrass a foolish reality star.

Now is probably a good time to remind everyone that Stormy Daniels is raising funds so that she can expose the truth about Trump.

These funds go directly to her attorney to pay her daunting legal fees as Trump and his allies attempt to silence her with legal muscle.

It has been revealed that Stormy has also been physically threatened, though it is unclear whether this was done by someone directly working with Trump or merely a fan hoping to intimidate her into silence.

Hopefully, her upcoming 60 Minutes interview will tell us more.

Derick Dillard Trolls Universe with Bizarre Pro-Life Tweets

As Counting On fans know, Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard loves to use social media as a platform to troll pretty much everyone.

His latest missive was certainly no exception.

Yes, the man who calls out transgender teens and regularly comes up with new ways to scam fans for money still doesn’t know when to quit.

Derick, who was fired by TLC in late 2017, isn’t letting that slow him down – if anything, he seems more emboldened than ever.

Never one to back down from his views or defending them, the father of two has become downright antagonistic on Twitter of late.

On Friday, the staunchly pro-life Arkansan shared an article about a pro-life bill in Iowa that would ban abortion very early in pregnancy.

This state law would prohibit the procedure as soon as an embryo has a detectable heartbeat, and Derick couldn’t be happier about it.

Derick wrote in celebration of this news:

“This is great! Laws country-wide are getting closer to making ALL murder illegal. Progress IS being made. Equality for all!”

Now that is some serious trolling.

Twitter users immediately seized on the controversial star’s word choice of “equality,” given his, um, history of intolerance.

Specifically, Derick’s hateful and repeated transphobic comments about Jazz Jennings, which led to his firing from TLC.

“Hypocrisy at its finest,” one fan wrote.

The fan continued with this question:

“I’m wondering … does ‘equality for all!’ include transgender people, Derick? Just curious where your ‘for ALL’ line is drawn.”

Another Twitter responded that abortions should not be illegal because this could claim lives, not save them as Derick posits.

Terminating a pregnancy could save the life of the mother in certain situations, and banning the practice could be fatal to the mother.

His confusing response to that?

“What about all the people in this world who rely on somebody else to live??” Derick shot back. “Should we just kill all those people??!”

Other irate fans noted that Derick is a man, and thus is in no position to talk about abortions and female reproductive rights.

Not only that, but someone told him:

“You were literally a virgin up until about [two years] ago. Pretty sure your opinion about my uterus and my body is a moot point!!!!!”

Derick, of course, subscribes the well-documented Duggar family doctrine of chaperoned dates and side-hugging before marriage. 

Der Tweet

Dillard married Jill in June 2014, so he’s been boning for almost four years if you want to get technical, but the fan’s point was made.

In response, Derick … tried to invoke religion to try to establish some correlation between one’s virginity and ability to form an opinion.

Yeah, we’re as confused as you are. He wrote:

“Pretty sure Jesus Christ was a virgin his whole life, and the western world bases its calendar system on the man’s life.”

“And while we’re talking about moot points.”

Derick’s endgame is a mystery. It’s hard to understand what he’s going for with his scorched earth social media campaign. 

If Dillard’s goal is to make headlines and remain relevant by burning every remaining bridge he can find, then well done sir.

Well done.
