This is shameful.

Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz kicked up a storm of controversy by carrying her mattress to graduation. The art project/protest over her rape case has mostly been seen as a brave statement to bring attention to victims who are too easily dismissed.

Posters have appeared all over the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan to discredit Sulkowicz, calling her a "pretty little liar."

The anonymous Twitter account @fakerape is being used to get the posters more attention:

Columbia University Student Carries Her Mattress On Stage At Graduation To Protest Her Dismissed Rape Case

no title

Emma Sulkowicz made headlines when she began carrying her mattress around Columbia University to protest the school's mishandling of her rape case.

And on Tuesday that protest culminated when — despite earlier rulings against it — she was allowed to carry the mattress across the stage as she graduated.

This is the culmination of a protest/senior performance art project entitled Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) in which Emma must have the mattress with her whenever she is on university property.

Emma filed a complaint against another Columbia student in April 2013 for sexually assaulting her in August 2012.

When the University found the student "not responsible," Emma took her case to the NYPD, who chose not to pursue charges.

She has since filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school.

Bud Light Pulls Slogan After The Internet Lets Them Know It Promotes Date Rape

How did they not catch this?

Bud Light's latest ad campaign is definitely not going to win any awards anytime soon.

That's because the brewing company recently ran a beer can that was adorned with a rather controversial slogan that basically promoted date rape.

When the internet got a hold of the cans, people were outraged that the Anheuser-Busch brand would make light of such a serious issue, forcing the line to be recalled.

The quote in question:

"The perfect beer for removing "no" from your vocabulary for the night #UpForWhatever"

Ummmmm… that's not even slightly subtle!
