As you know, the Parkland, FL school suffered a mass shooting in February — during which 17 lives were taken to gun violence. Four of those victims — Meadow Pollack, Carmen Schentrup, Nicholas Dworet, and Joaquin Oliver — were seniors. Their parents accepted diplomas on their behalf.

The TV personality offered a combination of comedic relief and seriousness to honor the students and their families. Watch his speech (above)!!

Republican Actually Blames School Shootings On PORN!

no title

In the 18th round of the Anything But Guns game, things get sexy.

As the epidemic of mass shootings has continued unchecked, the Republican position has evolved faster than you can say "there's no such thing as science it wuz all created in six days."

They began by shifting the focus from guns to mental health — but quickly found that backfired when those who wanted sensible gun control pointed out universal background checks could include looks at history of mental health.

Since then they've blamed violent movies, video games, abortions, bullying, lack of father figure, demonic spirits (yes, really), and too many doors in school buildings.

Now they're going after something they hate anyway: "Pornography."

Yes, during a meeting with pastors last week, U.S. Representative Diane Black (who is running for governor of Tennessee, btw) said porn was "a big part" of the problem:

"It's available on the shelf when you walk in the grocery store. Yeah, you have to reach up to get it, but there's pornography there. All of this is available without parental guidance. I think that is a big part of the root cause."

Um, except EVERYONE has porn all over the world (some countries infamously kinkier than we are) and yet the U.S. pretty much has everyone else beat on school shootings.

To see what Republicans blame next, tune in to Anything But Guns next week and EVERY WEEK AFTER! Ugh.

13 Reasons Why Showrunner Defends That Sexual Assault Scene — Because It Happens All The Time IRL

no title

[SPOILERS FOR SEASON 2]

Season two of 13 Reasons Why may be just as controversial as the first.

The hit Netflix show returned on Friday, and over the weekend fans eventually got to that scene — in which Tyler (Devin Druid) is sexually assaulted with a broomstick by Monty (Timothy Granaderos).

Many viewers thought the scene went too far, calling out the show as problematic for the sake of controversy. But showrunner Brian Yorkey says the motivation for such a horrifying attack was itself even worse.

Unfortunately, it happens all the time to high school students. He told Entertainment Weekly:

Publix Unnecessarily Censors 'Summa CUM Laude' On Cake — Causing A VERY Awkward Graduation Party!

Filed under: Oops!FamilyFunnyEducationalGIFsViral: News

no title

Poor Cara Koscinski was just trying to get her son Jacob a nice cake for his graduation.

After he earned academic distinction with his fantastic GPA, Cara ordered a cake over the weekend with the Latin phrase "Summa Cum Laude" (with top honors) on it.

Unfortunately, the ignorant prudes working the frosting gun at the South Carolina took it upon themselves to protect her from her dirty words; they refused to write the cum part! Haha!

Hilariously, by censoring the benign phrase, they actually exposed a fairly conservative family to the dirty interpretation — as Mom had to explain to her son and her 70-year-old mother why the thing was censored! Young Jacob recalled to WCIV:

"The cake experience was kind of frustrating and humiliating because I had to explain to my friends and family like what that meant. And they were giggling uncontrollably. At least my friends were."

See Cara's whole viral story (below)!

'Yanny Or Laurel' Creator Gives The REAL Answer! That Voice Is Saying…

no title

The Yanny/Laurel debate is over!

On Wednesday, after a daylong national debate, Wired found the high school students who first posted the audio clip.

Freshman Katie Hetzel explained she had recorded the voice from a vocabulary site for a school project and found her classmates divided on what it was saying. Then her friend Fernando Castro posted it to his Instagram as a poll, and in turn his friend Roland Szabo posted it to Reddit — from there it got put on Twitter where it quickly went viral.

But the important part? The recording, which is of an opera singer with excellent diction speaking the word aloud for Vocabulary.com, is of the word…

White Yale Grad Student Calls Police On Black Student For SLEEPING IN THE COMMON AREA — And It's All On Film!

no title

You know how every right wing pundit thinks colleges are liberal snowflake safe spaces? Well, think again.

Cuz today we have an example of some good ole Trumpmerica ignorant racism in the freakin' Ive League!

Lolade Siyonbola had fallen asleep while studying in the common area of her campus residence, leading fellow grad student Sarah Braasch to call the police on her!

Um, what?? Did she just see a black woman and immediately think, 'I need an adult'??

When Siyonbola woke to find the philosophy student (because life just has to keep winking at us in 2018) on the phone with the cops, she posted the incident live on her Facebook for both evidence and safety.

Even after finding out this was a fellow student (if she didn't know before), Braasch tells her in no uncertain terms:

We Think Kanye West Just Broke Chrissy Teigen With This Abraham Lincoln Tweet…

no title

Kanye West seems to be overdosing on the Red Pill, and it is boggling Chrissy Teigen's mind.

She isn't the first person to see a friend walk into the bubble of right wing "alternative facts" and become immune to logic or compassion during the rise of Donald Trump, but we don't think it's happened this publicly before.

On Monday, Kanye tweeted out a bit of text convo with some new neo-conservative friend named Steve (Bannon maybe?) who informed him that Abraham Lincoln was actually *gasp* a Republican, a fact that most school children know, which only seems meaningful to the current GOP with no more context or history of the parties' evolutions.

And well, that may have finally broken Chrissy, who responded:
