First it was Tupac, and now with Michael Jackson’s posthumous “performance,” the lawyers of famous people’s estates everywhere are having to figure out how to add a “no hologram” clause to their wills. Noisey put it more succinctly, calling the entire ordeal “weird and sad.”
Instead of eating donuts and metaphorically jackin’ it on a street corner, this off-duty Camden County police lieutenant literally pulled out his member at a Starbucks in Camden, New Jersey.
VICE News reporter Simon Ostrovsky is back in Eastern Ukraine, where he is reporting the truth without compromise.
A few gun-rights activists brought some high-powered weapons into a Dallas Chipotle. The restaurant’s response was, and I am completely lying here, “Go ahead, eat our delicious burritos of immense gastronomical proportions, but if you insist on sticking the barrel of a firearm in your mouth afterward please do it in the confines of your automobile or a competitor’s bathroom.” In reality, they did the right thing and have officially declared high-powered weapons unappetizing.
We made an entire documentary about penis implants.
WikiLeaks condemned Glenn Greenwald’s new First Look Media venture of censoring the name of a country in which the US is conducting mass surveillance (we’re talking every single phone call and God knows what else, people). Greenwald shot back by saying his company disclosed many more details about the referenced NSA report, including that the entire island nation of the Bahamas is under US surveillance. Welcome to the NO PRIVACY ZONE, everyone. Better not lie anymore… about anything.
Elliot Rodger, the 22-year-old son of Peter Rodger, the second unit director of The Hunger Games, killed six people, and then himself. He was super upset about being a life-long virgin surrounded by bros and girls that demeaned him at UCSB, was a member of the awful PUAhate forum, and was influenced by men's rights activism—an oxymoronic endeavor by the way. He had posted a series of sketchy videos, including this threat of retribution, which he posted yesterday before he went on his rampage.
A whole new round of ding-dongs with square haircuts are competing to be the new GOP presidential nominee. As my father says, “Only idiots want to be president, because it’s the worst job in the world.”
Weev, the infamous internet troll and “hacker” of AT&T who was recently released from prison, is now demanding one bitcoin for each hour he spent in the clink. We wish you luck, dude, but you’re going to need a lot of It considering the federal government’s history on reparations.
In what may be the first true declaration of cyberwarfare, the US charged five Chinese nationals from Shanghai with spying on American companies. ABC News says it costs the US millions of dollars and a whole lotta jobs. There has been some doubt cast on Mandiant’s 2013 report that a special hacker unit of the government has been stealing state secrets. A very important topic that you will see more reporting on from VICE in the near future.
