VIDEO: Watch These Dogs Drink Down The Puppuccino

Pups. Dogs. Puppers. We love them, can't get enough of them. They're cute, make us feel good, they're warm, sweet, adorable, and what could we ever do to return the favor? Feed them I guess, give them a warm place to sleep every night, and fill their entire lives with a warmth and friendship that they deserve. Those are all good, but have you considered also given the sweet little pets a little something called... the Puppuccino? One barista named Jodie Brooke, who goes by the handle @JodieBrooke2 on Twitter, did just that, chronicling the adorable sight of seeing a dog greedily lap up the cup of whip cream that makes up this sweet and overwhelming delight that the Puppuccino is so known for being?

Empire Actor Jussie Smollett Attacked In Violent Hate Crime

Empire actor Jussie Smollett was attacked in a hate crime in Chicago on Monday night. The assailants first got Smollett's attention by showing the n-word and the homophobic f-word at him, and then proceeded to violently beat him. The assailants then threw a noose around his neck and poured bleach on his body. Before they ran off, the assailants shouted "This is MAGA Country", referring to the president's "Make America Great Again" slogan that white supremacists and those involved in racist encounters -- from the Charlottesville attackers to Nathan Sandmann -- have adopted as shorthand for their racist, homophobic, anti semitic, and xenophobic beliefs.

Laid Off Buzzfeed Writer Creates Hilarious, Biting Quiz

Look. Never trust anyone who says you don't need a union. Most likely it means they don't want anything standing in the way of their impending, shady as hell, business decisions. Case in point, Jonah Perretti's laying off of 15% of his workforce at Buzzfeed. The layoffs -- at Buzzfeed and Huffpost, resulted in the layoffs of over 1,000 people between the two companies, and Buzzfeed has made the absolutely monstorous decision that, outside of California, where it's state law to pay out for paid time off worked, you know, the accumulated time the employee worked for the company on days he should have been resting on, PTO will not be paid. The bitterness over the layoffs, and the, frankly inhumane, PTO policy is virulent. So much so that people are speaking out against Perretti in the company slack, and one laid off Buzzfeed staffer went rogue, and in the Buzzfeed community boards made a quiz, hosted on Buzzfeed.com, reflecting his anger at the terrible workplace conditions, titled "Do You Still Have A Job At BuzzFeed?", which you can read here.

VIDEO: Passerbys Stop Cop From Harassing Two Teens

Well, this is exciting. Over and over we've heard about aggressive racist cops destroying the lives of the citizens in the black communities that they're meant to patrol. People are told about the rights they they have to protect themselves from the police -- rights that were instituted so innocent people wouldn't have to deal with racist police officers -- but in the moment we can freeze up and forget them, letting those who wish to harm us in the name of the law continue doing so. Luckily, some people have help from the outside world, as this incredible video of two men stopping the police from doing an illegal search and seizure to two teenagers, shows. It's absolutely fantastic. These two men absolutely know all of their rights and will gladly communicate them to those who are being harassed in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.

Shaking my damn head!), it did gain a following online from its constant plays on TBS, and a boredom with Shrek as the go to movie to pretend you like while sort of cringing when those attempts at photo realistic ogres come on screen. Now, the nation wants more Bee Movie memes, and one woman captured the internet's collective imagination with her impression of the one fictional character without whom the cinematic world would cease to turn: Bee Movie bee's, Barry's, girlfriend Vanessa Bloome, voiced originally by Renee Zellweger, played to perfection by this individual, Twitter user @Gianna_Genneken. Gaze in awe at her near perfect rendition of the greatest love interest character of all time (Romeo and Juliet are tied for second of course).

There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money."

Well folks, the Oscar nominations are in, and you can't say that the Academy doesn't have taste -- then again, Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody are on there, the latter directed by someone who really shouldn't get rewarded in light of the #MeToo movement, but we've written about that before here. Either way, Rom and The Favourite, two movies which are absolutely perfect if you don't mind me saying so, are leading the pack with ten nominations each -- both have Best Picture, and Roma has Best Foreign Film to boot.

VIDEO: Cardi B Claps Back At Tomi Lahren on Twitter

A wonderful thing about the post Trump era is that a lot of people are really done with both sideism. Both sideism got us here to this place where Clinton's e-mails and Trump's racist fascism were considered one and the same, and both sideism is still the favorite tool of a majority of people who make bad arguments. Arguments such as -- that the democrats are also responsible for the shutdown, despite the fact that Trump said that he will own the shutdown, and Mitch McConnell is currently the one voice blocking the vote to re-open it. Presumably, it was the ignoring of this that led Tomi Lahren, the conservative talking head and casual racist to imply Cardi B is stupid for her now viral call to an end to the government shutdown. Unfortunately for Lahren, when you tangle with Cardi B, you really are like an ant in a hurricane, and Cardi B's response was... incredible. Check it out below.

Sony Drops R. Kelly In Light Of… You Know

The R. Kelly documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, has dropped a lot of troubling questions. Amongst those were how did R. Kelly get away with this for so long? What are out next steps in terms of getting justice for his victims? And, most strangely of all, why is he still signed on to Sony!? He doesn't even release new music, really. Not in a way that justifies keeping a man accused of countless of acts of rape and pedophilia on contract. Well, earlier today Sony very quietly parted ways with Kelly in a manner that won't be given much publicity from Sony, but is getting a lot of mainstream press, removing R. Kelly from the RCA Records website, according to Variety, on a list which shows which artists the label is representing.

VIDEO: Cardi B Calls For End To Government Shut Down In Viral Instagram

People keep being so shocked that Cardi B is political, but she's been this way for a while now! In an earlier entry we've covered her incredible knowledge of the New Deal policies of FDR and love of Bernie Sanders (with her iconic quote, "Vote for Daddy Bernie, Bitch!", which I believe would have made an incredible campaign slogan for the beloved leftist politician), but now the rapper and newly crowned twerk artist (Twerktist?) has made another splash in the political field with her Instagram video of her calling for an end to the government shutdown currently robbing thousands of government employees of their paychecks.
