Parents slammed for letting child sit on sushi bar, touch food on conveyor belt

A video of a child sitting on top of a sushi bar while touching food moving down a conveyor belt has the Internet slamming the mom and dad’s “hands-off” parenting.

The video was posted to a Reddit thread with the caption “Hands-off parenting at a conveyor belt sushi bar.” 

The parents and an older child are seen sitting in chairs at the bar while a younger child sits on top of the bar, directly next to the conveyor belt. As the food moves down the conveyor belt, the young child reaches out their hand and begins touching the plated food.

The child continues touching the food for about 30 seconds before the mother appears to notice and tries to put food into the toddler’s mouth.

The child, however, keeps touching the plates of food passing by on the conveyor belt, even as the mom apparently tries to feed the child to distract them.

Redditors in the thread were not pleased by the child’s behavior, particularly the mom and dad’s lack of parenting.

“I’m surprised they weren’t told to move their kid. Completely unacceptable,” one Reddit user commented.

Another wrote, “You should get removed from the restaurant actually. That’s creating a health hazard.”

“The shock when they get the bill for everything the kid touched,” another Redditor said.

Another person jokingly, or maybe not so jokingly, commented “You get my germs! And you get my germs! Everybody gets strep!!!”

Controversial ‘Cocaine Santa’ Christmas sweater now an Amazon bestseller after Walmart stops offering it

More like Santa Escobar.

A controversial “Cocaine Santa” Christmas sweater, which was pulled from Walmart’s Canadian website over its depiction of Santa appearing to do cocaine, is now an Amazon bestseller — and it’s “perfect for cozy days with your family!” according to its current product description.

The now-popular crew neck sweater, which Walmart apologized for offering on its website earlier this week, depicts a very bizarre-looking Santa Claus holding what appears to be a straw in one hand while standing over a table laid out with snowballs and three lines of something that resembles cocaine.

The ugly sweater, cheekily dubbed “Let It Snow,” is now listed as a #1 Best Seller in the Women’s Novelty Sweatshirts section (despite being labeled as unisex), and it’s earning plenty of glowing 5-star reviews.

“It’s the funniest, most amazing xmas sweater in the universe. Buy one,” wrote one easily pleased customer named Matt.

“Nothing says ‘Christmas’ like Santa Snooters,” Larry Dickman titled a 5-star review.

In another, someone else simply re-posted the needlessly overt product description from the Walmart listing, which included several paragraphs-worth of allusions to cocaine.

The bestselling adult-themed holiday sweater retails on Amazon for $31.99 — and is available with Prime, too. But even though the sweater is currently available at the online marketplace, it is technically being sold by a third party seller. However, this particular sweater, and other similar versions currently sold on Amazon, are being offered by brands other than FUNwear, which was the third-party seller responsible for the “Cocaine Santa” sweaters previously offered on Walmart’s Canadian website.

Utah woman claims vet mistakenly euthanized pet dog after calling wrong family

A Utah family is coping with losing their dog after a vet reportedly euthanized him by mistake.

Andrea Martinez took to Facebook to share the devastating story on Monday, writing that the family took their pet dachshund Ziggy to the emergency room after “his breathing got weird.”

WOMAN SAYS DOG DIED AFTER EATING TOXIC MUSHROOM: ‘WE DID EVERYTHING WE COULD’

The emergency vet recommended surgery for Ziggy, which the family agreed to, Martinez said.

While the pup was undergoing the invasive procedure, the vet realized it was going to be “a lot more work and money than they expected” and called to get permission from the family to continue with the surgery or “go ahead and lay him down.”

However, Martinez claims she never received that call.

“But they didn’t call me,” Martinez shared in the post. “[T]hey called another [dog’s] mom thinking it was me, and she said no to go ahead and lay him down.”

Martinez did not find out her dog had been euthanized until someone from the vet’s office called later to tell her Ziggy had been put down. She said that when she “freaked out,” the vet realized “they called the wrong person the first time.”

“Then he got back on [the phone] and he apologized and said, ‘I’m so sorry that this happened, we got confused and ended up calling another dog’s mom,’” Martinez told KUTV. According to the vet, there was another dog named Ziggy, and the vet initially contacted that Ziggy’s family.

Since finding out the heartbreaking news, Martinez has said she “can’t stop crying” and doesn’t know how to break it to her 6-year-old that “her best friend died.” (Andrea Martinez)

According to Martinez, she said she would have never agreed to let her dog go “without trying more” and blames the vet for “rob[bing] me the choice of saying ‘at least we tried.’”

Since finding out the heartbreaking news, Martinez has said she “can’t stop crying” and doesn’t know how to break it to her 6-year-old that “her best friend died.”

“Ziggy followed me EVERYWHERE and cuddled me every single night. He made my anxiety bearable. I feel so sick that this happened,” she wrote on Facebook.

The name of the vet in Davis County was not shared, but according to KUTV, they apologized for the unfortunate incident and waived the bill, as well as gifted the family an urn, plaque and Christmas ornament with Ziggy’s paw print.

Twitter is convinced Fashion Nova is trolling Kim Kardashian and her outfits

Fashion Nova apparently has some explaining to do.

The popular online fashion store is being called out by Twitter users who say it is clearly trolling Kim Kardashian West and her signature style.

Many have noticed that Fashion Nova’s model strikingly resembles Kardashian and that some of the outfits it sells look an awful lot like those worn by the reality TV star.

“Fashionnova vs kim kardashian has been one of my favorite low key things of the decade,” a Twitter user posted on Tuesday.

Another tweet shows side-by-side images of three Fashion Nova models — though it’s not clear if it’s the same woman or not — one of whom is wearing an outfit that is nearly identical to Kardashian’s outfit from her fashion line, Skims.

“Fashion nova steals from everyone else,” a Twitter user said. (Photo: Fashion Nova)

The tweet sparked a flurry of comments from Twitter users, some accusing Fashion Nova of biting Kardashian’s style and others defending the fashion brand.

“Fashion nova 5 minutes after Kim released her new clothing sets,” one person tweeted along with a GIF of an assembly line at a factory.

“The devil works hard but fashion nova works harder,” another joked.

Someone else said, “Fashion nova steals from everyone else anyway. Both frauds.”

But not everyone agreed with the argument that Fashion Nova was copying Kardashian.

“Fashion nova been doing comfy … before skims even announced they were launching this collection,” one Twitter user commented.

“First of all, kimk did NOT start this trend,” another Twitter user wrote. “There’s been websites w this set forever … she just knows she could sell it for way more.”

Apparently, Kardashian also thinks Fashion Nova, or at least companies like it, uses her likeness to sell products.

Earlier this year, she took to Twitter to call out fashion companies for their “rip off designs.”

“It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas,” she tweeted at the time.

“I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent,” she added.

A major online retailer apologized for selling a “fat-suit game” after criticism that it was insensitive to the plus-size community.

British e-commerce site ASOS stocked a product called “Ballerina Charades” by Typo U.K., reports the Independent. The $25 toy comes in a box featuring a photo of a model wearing an inflatable fat suit with a tutu and a tagline that reads, “The perfect ice breaker and party game filled with laughter!”

On Dec. 5, plus-size social media personality Danielle Vanier critiqued the game in a tweet: “Erm, @ASOS – What is this please? Why would you stock something that is clearly marketed towards laughing at a body that looks like mine?”

Vanier’s tweet, as well as a chorus of other ones from several social media users who lashed out against the game for fat-shaming, prompted ASOS to remove the game from its website and issue an apology.

“Thank you for making us aware of this. It was never our intention to cause [offense], we’ve decided to remove the product from our site,” an ASOS rep tweeted on Dec. 6. “As a responsible fashion retailer we’re aware of the importance of promoting positive body image, so we appreciate your feedback.”

“A member of PR team emailed me and told me they were putting this item on hold and I’m so glad they have decided to remove the product from the site,” Vanier wrote in a later tweet. ” I feel like this is a really positive outcome and very happy for their prompt response.”

Axe Body Spray prank gets school bus evacuated; 15 treated for ‘mild respiratory irritation’

This probably isn’t what the commercials meant when they boast of “the Axe effect.”

A school bus carrying 30 children from Florida’s Manatee County School District was evacuated on Monday after an “excessive amount of body spray” was released aboard the vehicle. Authorities are investigating the incident, and believe that it was meant to be a prank.

At least 15 students were treated for “mild respiratory irritation” after the spray was discharged on the school bus, which was in Parrish, Fla., at the time, Fox 5 reports. Authorities are reviewing cameras on the bus to determine who released the spray, which has been identified as Axe Body Spray by ABC Action News.

Fortunately for the students, no serious injuries were reported. A second, Axe-body-spray-free bus was called to the scene to transport the students to a nearby high school, where their parents could pick them up.

Crews arrived on the scene to find fifteen students with mild respiratory irritation. All students were triaged and prioritized according to their initial complaint.”

California bride tried scamming wedding website The Knot out of $10G twice, insurance department finds

A California bride was caught trying to scam wedding website The Knot out of thousands of dollars — twice.

Vermyttya Miller, 37, was sentenced to five years in county jail, and hit with a $22,500 fine, on one count of insurance fraud for the October 2016 incident, to which she pleaded no contest.

MAN PROPOSES TO GIRLFRIEND BY STAGING A FAKE ARMED ROBBERY, IT DOES NOT GO OVER WELL

Miller had booked her wedding reception for the Galleria Ballroom in Glendale through The Knot. The venue reportedly came with $10K insurance for event cancellation or postponement.

Soon after booking, Miller filed an insurance claim, alleging she tripped on her wedding dress and had to cancel the reception because of her injuries. Miller also provided medical documents corroborating her claims, the California Department of Insurance reported in a press release.

Miller was delivered a $10,000 check on Oct. 31, 2016 for the claim.

However, on Dec. 4, 2016, Miller e-mailed The Knot’s insurer to report her check stolen, and sent a copy of a police report she claims to have filed.

Unfortunately for Miller, the claim was referred to the Department of Insurance for investigation, where both her medical documents and the police report were found to have been forged.

“Miller’s trail of fraudulent claims led straight to a five-year jail sentence after department detectives unraveled her scheme,” said Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office handled the case. Miller was sentenced to jail time, and to pay restitution for the $10,000 payout as well as $12,500 for investigative costs, the press release shared.

Interestingly, according to her Facebook, Miller began serving her sentence on Dec. 4 — exactly three years to the day when she reported her check missing.

“Today is my last day free,” Miller, an actress, wrote in a Dec. 3 Facebook post. “Tomorrow I start my 5-year sentence but I will only do half. I want all my supporter [sic] and family to pray for me and my family.”

“I am sad I have to go but I will knock it out and come out better and start from where I left off with filming, music and the businesses I was starting,” she continued in her post, adding that she hopes to one day “show my life through film to motivate others and show the timeline from making mistakes to changing my life.”

Reporter caught boyfriend cheating when ‘physical activity’ spiked on Fitbit: ‘Wish the story wasn’t real’

Cheaters never win, and one woman is now having the last laugh after finding out that her former boyfriend was being unfaithful when his “physical activity” levels mysteriously spiked on his Fitbit device.

Last week, NFL Network reporter Jane Slater replied to a fellow correspondent’s tweet about the Peloton bike and the brand’s recent, controversial holiday ad by sharing the story of her former beau’s fitness-tracker fail. Her shocking admission has since gone viral, with over 46,000 shares and thousands of comments.

“An ex-boyfriend once got me a Fitbit for Christmas. I loved it. We synched up, motivated each other… Didn’t hate it until he was unaccounted for at 4 a.m. and his physical activity levels were spiking on the app,” ” Slater revealed. “Wish the story wasn’t real.”

“Spoiler alert: he was not enrolled in an OrangeTheory class at 4 a.m.,” Slater added.

Though the 38-year-old reporter said she first “sobbed uncontrollably” when she put the clues together, she has since moved on and says she’s laughed “many times” about the Fitbit fail.

A few critics, meanwhile, argued that Slater should be thankful the Fitbit shed light on her ex-beau’s infidelity.

Making light of the situation, other jokesters teased that the horror story should inspire “every” woman to purchase their partner a Fitbit, and “glue it” to their wrists to monitor any illicit dalliances.

‘They’ declared 2019 ‘word of the year’ by Merriam-Webster

The small but mighty personal pronoun “they” has been declared the 2019 Word of the Year by Merriam-Webster, officials announced Tuesday.

“They” won the top spot on the annual, data-driven list after receiving a 313-percent search increase on the dictionary publisher’s website in comparison with 2018, the Associated Press reports.

In September, Merriam-Webster expanded the definition of “they” as relating to a person whose gender identity is non-binary. Weeks later, the American Psychological Association recognized “they” as a singular third-person pronoun in its latest scholarly writing style guide.

The language mavens at Merriam-Webster have declared the personal pronoun their word of the year based on a 313-percent increase in search at Merriam-Webster.com. (AP Photo)

‘EXISTENTIAL,’ ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY’ CHOSEN AS WORDS OF THE YEAR

“Pronouns are among the language’s most commonly used words, and like other common words (think go, do, and have) they tend to be mostly ignored by dictionary users. But over the past year or so, as people have increasingly encountered the non-binary use, we’ve seen searches for they grow dramatically,” Emily Brewster, Merriam-Webster senior editor, said in a press release. “People were clearly encountering this new use and turning to the dictionary for clarity and for usage guidance.”

“They” seized the spotlight and reportedly drove people to the dictionary after non-binary model Oslo Grace rocked the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week in January, Rep.

‘They’ declared 2019 ‘word of the year’ by Merriam-Webster

The small but mighty personal pronoun “they” has been declared the 2019 Word of the Year by Merriam-Webster, officials announced Tuesday.

“They” won the top spot on the annual, data-driven list after receiving a 313-percent search increase on the dictionary publisher’s website in comparison with 2018, the Associated Press reports.

In September, Merriam-Webster expanded the definition of “they” as relating to a person whose gender identity is non-binary. Weeks later, the American Psychological Association recognized “they” as a singular third-person pronoun in its latest scholarly writing style guide.

‘EXISTENTIAL,’ ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY’ CHOSEN AS WORDS OF THE YEAR

“Pronouns are among the language’s most commonly used words, and like other common words (think go, do, and have) they tend to be mostly ignored by dictionary users. But over the past year or so, as people have increasingly encountered the non-binary use, we’ve seen searches for they grow dramatically,” Emily Brewster, Merriam-Webster senior editor, said in a press release. “People were clearly encountering this new use and turning to the dictionary for clarity and for usage guidance.”

“They” seized the spotlight and reportedly drove people to the dictionary after non-binary model Oslo Grace rocked the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week in January, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) spoke about her gender-nonconforming child while advocating for LGBTQ rights legislation during a House committee hearing in April and historic Pride celebrations were commemorated in June, per the release.
