Today's Lady News photo
  • High school students in Sweden staged a riot after a 17-year-old student posted a question on Instagram asking for “sluts” to be identified, which garnered a list of 200 pictures of 13- and 14-year-old kids. In response, other students — including older siblings — went after the original poster and then rioted in the streets and at the mall. Damn, Sweden.
