Instagram couple slammed for asking people to fund ‘celebration of life’ cycling trip to Africa

An Instagram couple from Germany is getting ridiculed on social media after setting up a GoFundMe page to fund their trip to Africa.

Cat and Elena of the Instagram account Another Beautiful Day have come under fire for requesting 10,000 euros ($11,234) to help them go on a “huge adventure” to Africa starting late July. According to GoFundMe and the couple’s Instagram page, the pair are planning on tandem cycling from the “middle of Germany” toward “Africa, and hopefully beyond.”

ANOTHER INSTAGRAM COUPLE SLAMMED FOR ‘STUPID’ PHOTO SHOOT ON MOVING TRAIN: ‘ARE YOU REALLY READY TO DIE FOR A PIC?’

The two, who did not give specific destinations, described the vague trip as “a celebration of life.”

“We want to take you all on this huge adventure,” the GoFundMe page read. “A celebration of life, as we ride freely across mountains, by the sea and through metropolitans. We will show the beauty of this planet and its inhabitants, but also the ugliness.”

The pair said the money raised would go toward the bike and gear as well as food, accommodations, Internet, SIM cards in every country, insurance and to cover for emergencies if they arise.

“We hope you all enjoy and learn with us,” the post continued before concluding “Together we can make a difference.”

Since posting the money-seeking post, the couple has been ripped apart for being “narcissist.”

“Or you could tell people to save their money up and go and have the experiences themselves not ‘through you’. Total liberty!” one wrote on Instagram.

“Bums get a job,” one wrote.

“You want people to fund your lifestyle lol. Pathetic. Get jobs and support yourselves. You narcissistic cretins. You’re not even raising money for a good cause. You’re literally asking people to fund your holiday wtf. What a waste of life you are,” one person harshly stated.

In a follow-up post, Cat tried to play down the negative responses by claiming the couple had the “courage” to ask and accept help. Cat also shared that the couple are currently being funded by his mother – who he described is working two jobs and does not much for herself, The Sun reported.

“Some people are quick to judge and speak. At this very moment we don’t have much, we are accepting money from my mother and also donations but we don’t hide that. This situation is teaching us a lot,” a caption read, along with the hashtag “trying to do something bigger.”

Those on social media continued to slam the couple on all platforms.

“wow , dont you feel ashamed to be such a burden on your mother that is working 2 jobs to support both of your lavish fantasy’s … she already sacrificed so much raising you and providing for you , at that age you should be taking off burdens of her not adding to it,” one person wrote on the GoFundMe.

“Get a couple of jobs and support yourselves!” another commented.

“Posting your holiday photos to Instagram isn’t changing the world, it’s purely increasing your already inflated sense of self-worth. If you want to plan an epic trip, get a job and earn the money yourselves. No more handouts from Mummy (who is currently working 2 jobs while you post selfies for a living) or expecting strangers to maintain your lifestyle. Time to enter the real world,” one wrote.

Cat posted on the couple’s Instagram that he will be taking a 30-day break from social media to do some “soul searching,” though it was not clear if the monthlong leave was fueled by the response from his followers or if it was previously planned.

CHATTY BABY ‘TALKING’ TO HIS DAD GOES VIRAL

For the sweet-tooth dad

Jeni’s Ice Cream offers craft selections to please anyone with a penchant for dessert.

Some dads manage to do it all – from cooking to fixing things to playing chauffeur. But when your dad needs a little help to stay on his grind, there’s always coffee. What better way to give your dad some extra pep-in-his-step than with a brand that donates part of its proceeds toward supporting injured firefighters, veterans and first responders.

Fire Department Coffee is created by firefighters and comes in a variety of blends and roasts, including bourbon and rum-infused for the more spirited father.

The coffee company delivers to your door and has special pricing for firefighters, first responders and military.

If your dad is the hiking, fishing and hunting type, he likely needs a cooler that’s as agile as he is. Enter the Yeti Hopper BackFlip 24. The brand beloved by outdoor adventurers has created a backpack cooler to keep your dad’s hands free (though it has handles if he’d rather carry it the old-fashioned way). The leak-proof design allows your old man to traverse the backcountry with 20 cans of his favorite beverage – or simply kick up his feet and watch the world go by knowing he won’t be thirsty anytime soon.

The backpack comes in two colors and is currently in stock.

Often, gadgets and dads go hand-in-hand. So what better way to show him you care than a gadget for his hand? Or, wrist, rather.

The new features from the OS update allows users to download apps directly on the watch from the app store, instead of through a companion iPhone app. It also has more advanced health tracking to stay better informed of activity levels, though your dad may want to avoid using it just to reach his 10,000 step goal.

The Apple Watch is available online and in stores.

Ryanair passenger allegedly suffers severe burns after flight attendant drops boiling hot water on him

A Ryanair passenger claims he was left severely burned on a flight after a crew member spilled boiling hot water on him.

Thomas McNab, 49, boarded the Scotland-bound flight in Fara, Portugal, last month with his partner Tonina Ciantar, when he says the alleged incident occurred.

According to a Facebook post by Ciantar, she claims the flight crew member “dropped boiling water” on McNab’s ankles from the drink cart, leaving him “screaming” in pain.

Though the accident was not the only issue Ciantar – and others on social media — took issue with: It was how the flight attendants allegedly responded.

“About four [or] five cups were scattered on the floor and he was screaming that boiling water had gone down the front of his trousers and on to his feet,” Ciantar told to SWNS, “he stood up and ran to the bathroom to get the shoes off and try and get some cold water on them.”

“The flight attendant didn’t even offer to get emergency assistance or move our seat so Thomas could stretch his legs out,” she added, claiming that the woman offered McNab with gel pads and cream for his burns, but did not offer cold water.

Ciantar also claims the flight attendant then shamed McNab for wanting an ambulance when the flight landed.

Once the flight landed the “crew member who dropped the water was nowhere to be seen,” Ciantar claimed to SWNS.

McNab was finally taken to the hospital, where he received care that Ciantar believes should have been given on the plane immediately following the burns.

“They submerged his feet in cold water and wrapped them in bandages, like they should have done on the plane. I understand accidents happen, but the treatment by staff in the aftermath was shocking.”

Ciantar wrote on Facebook that she contacted Ryanair about the incident, but had not heard back.

Fashion Nova pulls ‘disrespectful’ shirt appearing to feature California Camp Fire

Popular retailer Fashion Nova has removed a controversial shirt from its online store after receiving extreme backlash.

The Los Angeles-based clothing store featured a men’s t-shirt with an image of what appears to be a home burning in the devastating Camp Fire alongside the words “This must be Paradise.”

FASHION NOVA’S RISQUÉ ‘CUT-OUT’ PANTS FACE CRITICISM ON TWITTER: ‘THOSE AREN’T PANTS. STOP IT’

Those on Twitter quickly attacked the brand’s design, specifically that the shirt featured the name of the California town that was nearly destroyed by the 2018 fire.

Some online have claimed that the shirt was designed in 2018 — before the November 8 fire, although Fashion Nova has not confirmed this.

Fashion Nova did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Camp Fire destroyed more than 153,000 acres and became the deadliest blaze in the state’s history, causing 85 civilian fatalities, before it was finally contained over two weeks after it started. The town of Paradise was one of the hardest hit, losing nearly 19,000 buildings — most of which were residential.

Town developed by Walt Disney Company misspells “Walt” on downtown fountain

What in the Wald?

The town of Celebration, Fla., located near Walt Disney World and developed by The Walt Disney Company, apparently missed the memo on how to spell “Walt.”

6 DISNEY-THEMED VACATION IDEAS THAT GO BEYOND THE THEME PARKS

The small tight-knit community, which formed in 1996, is now working to correct two typos on a popular downtown fountain that may have been there for over a decade.

The fountain features the title “Wald Disney World” instead of “Walt” and added two letters to the name of Captiva Island, making it “Captativa Island.”

The mistakes were first noticed last week by Spectrum reporter Greg Ansel, who asked on Twitter how the “entire planet somehow missed a major type in @CelebrationTH for a decade+?!”

The town, which is home to many Disney employees, is currently editing the issue as Ansel discovered on Sunday when the fountain was closed for repairs.

Groom mad at sister for scheduling gender reveal party on wedding day: ‘Nobody even apologized’

An anonymous newlywed was left fuming after a gender reveal party was allegedly scheduled on the same day as the wedding.

The groom posted on the Reddit forum, “Am I the A–hole,” asking others if he was in the wrong for being angry at his sister’s actions.

BRIDE’S VOW RENEWAL DRESS SLAMMED: ‘IS THE THEME PIRATE HOOKER?’

“I don’t live near any family except my grandparents who are in the next town over and all my family lives spread out across the country. So when I was getting Married last week we had the wedding at my house and invited every one here to celebrate with us on our wedding day,” he wrote on Reddit.

“The plan was wedding at 3. Reception at 4 and after party at 7 or 8pm. Everyone was invited to all 3 parts well ahead of time. The after Party was set up so that we could actually spend real time with our friends and family instead of all the stiff formalities of the reception,” the post continued.

However, once the party began, the groom claimed “half the wedding left including my entire family.”

“Not a single member of my family stayed.”

Though the family members weren’t just calling it a night early – the unidentified man discovered later they had all gone to his grandparents’ house nearby for a gender reveal party his sister had planned and not told him about.

“Nobody bothered to ask if I wanted to go. Nobody showed up to my party. Nobody even apologized for not coming. I had wanted to spend quality time with my family but instead they all just left. They had all flown in just for the weekend so I didn’t get to talk to them before the wedding as it was all hectic from wedding prep. Then they flew out the next day,” he wrote.

The groom was shocked by his sister’s behavior and wrote he was “so mad” that he doesn’t know how to talk to them at the moment — especially on a day that “should have been my day,” he wrote.

The poster wrote in a follow-up comment that he specifically requested to have a wedding to bring his family, including his divorced parents, together.

“My beautiful bride wanted to elope but said we could do the wedding if I wanted to. My family all lives spread out across the county. The main reason why I wanted to have a real wedding was so that for the first time in my 30 year life I could have all my family in one place at one time.”

Those on the Reddit forum came to the groom’s defense, claiming he was in the right for being angry at the timing of his sister’s gender reveal.

“[Not the a–h—]. Though, it kind of sounds like your family doesn’t like you very much,” one person wrote.

“From the sound of things, [Original Poster]’s family was all in town together for a short time, and they wanted to go celebrate with the sister badly enough that they were willing to offend OP in order to do so. I don’t know what that says about OP’s relationship with these folks to begin with, but OP is totally NTA for being upset about it,” another commented.

“I’d be upset too!” one person offered.

Some in the comments ask the poster to confront his sister and then update the story — though the groom did not confirm whether he would or not.

Southwest passenger allegedly kicked off flight over joke about vodka

A passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight from Sacramento to Los Angeles was reportedly removed from the plane after he made a joke about vodka, which upset the attendant.

According to witness Peter Uzelac, who spoke to FOX40, the Wednesday flight was bound for Austin, Texas, with a layover at LAX. However, while on the tarmac, a maintenance light came on and the plane was forced to return to the gate to check it out.

While the plane was working on the maintenance issue, the flight was delayed again due to a need to refuel.

At this point, Uzelac said the attendant started handing out water to passengers since the flight had been delayed for a few hours – and a man sitting near him made a joke.

“He said something [like], ‘They should be passing out vodka because we’ve been waiting so long,’” Uzelac said to FOX40.

“[The flight attendant] came by and was like, ‘I don’t think that and I didn’t like your joke,’” he continued. “Then my wife tried to butt-in there and say, ‘Look, we’ve been on this plane for hours.’ And [the attendant] says, ‘Well, so have I, so get used to it.’”

Uzelac said other passengers were shocked by the woman’s behavior but dropped it.

“Then all of a sudden, I see her on the telephone up in front,” he said.

Uzelac told FOX40 the plane returned to the gate again after that, and several Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies boarded the flight and removed the man from the plane.

“And people started yelling then. In fact, people stood up. I stood up. People were saying this man didn’t do anything,” Uzelac said.

Police reportedly did not charge the man with a crime, but Uzelac has filed a complaint against the flight attendant with Southwest, the outlet reported.
