Adobe Sides With GamerGate Bullies As Part Of Their Involvement With The Bully Project (UPDATED)

In a move that is deeply troubling to someone who 1) has been using Photoshop since the mid-’90s and Lightroom and InDesign for the past two years, and 2) understands the difference between criticism and bullying, Adobe stated on Twitter today, in response to a question about GamerGate, that they don’t advertise on Gawker because they stand against bullying.

The Gawker Media family of blogs have been openly critical toward GamerGate pretty much since the beginning.

In actuality, the photo spread doesn’t seem to be about the clothes so much as it’s about exploiting the least flattering angles the publication could find of Armytage and bashing her body.

Pissed Off Mom Sells “Spoiled Brat” Daughter’s Katy Perry Tickets On Facebook

One teenage girl from Fargo, North Dakota, won’t be seeing Katy Perry’s whipped cream rocket bra in person this month, thanks to her fed up mother. Cindy Bjerke decided to teach her daughter a lesson by selling the teen’s Katy Perry concert tickets online, which to me, seems like a pretty good punishment. The problem was that the tickets were posted to the Fargo/Moorhead Online Garage Sale Facebook page along with a post which read “spoiled brat daughter doesn’t deserve these tickets.” Naturally, along with a ton of offers, Cindy received quite a bit of backlash about her parenting.
