The Emma Watson Nudes Threat Was A Hoax, And Also F**k Rantic

emma-watson-052214

They said it couldn’t be done, and I believed them: Fake internet marketing company Rantic made themselves look worse than 4chan trolls.

It turns out the trolls aren’t behind the Emma Watson nude photo leak threat. I mean, it speaks volumes that no one would put it past them to hear a speech as dignified and overall tame as Emma Watson’s address to the UN on gender equality and decide that she’s a hateful “feminazi” monster who deserves to be threatened into silence, but it turns out that even 4chan aren’t exactly the absolute shoe-scrapings of the internet – inasmuch as they weren’t the originators of the idea, anyway, just the people who glommed on and thought it was a reasonable idea.

That Story About A Little Girl Being Kicked Out Of A KFC Because Of Her Facial Scars Was Apparently A Big Ol' Hoax

Last week, you probably heard the story of a little girl who was kicked out of a KFC because, staff allegedly told her grandmother that her facial scars were “scaring people.” Three-year-old Victoria Wilcher has scars on her face leftover from a pitbull attack (shudder) and her family has been raising funds for surgery through GoFundMe. After the KFC story made headlines and went viral on the internet, KFC offered to donate $30,000 to Wilcher’s fund, while the public responded in droves and donations poured in to the tune of $135K. Doctors were even volunteering to waive their fees. Unfortunately, it turns out that Wilcher and her grandmother were never kicked out of a KFC — in fact, the whole thing was a hoax, concocted to help raise money for Wilcher’s surgery. Keep reading »

Playboy‘s Pro-Consent Party Commandments Piece Turns Out To Be A Hoax

playboy consent party commandments

Clicking through a Playboy article all about asking consent before sex, all I could think was, Who are you and what have you done with Playboy???

Hugh Hefner and feminists are uneasy bedfellows — pun definitely intended — even in the most liberal fields of Sex Positive-landia. But there was not much to gripe about over Playboy‘s 2013 Top Ten Party School Commandments, which extolled asking for  consent as the #1 way to have a good time at the party.  I had to wonder if they were hacked by techno-feminist pranksters.

Basically … yes. Keep reading »
