Hey Justin Bieber—go ahead and take a nice, long break






TwitterFacebook

Justin Bieber deserves a break. 

On the heels of China banning Bieber from performing in the country due to concerns about his past behavior, Bieber cancelled the remaining dates of the Purpose World Tour.

These memes are far tougher on Jared Kushner than any GOP Senator






TwitterFacebook

Jared Kushner put on his big boy pants yesterday and headed to the Senate to courageously testify in front of the public — sorry, I meant: speak not under oath behind closed doors.

The internet couldn’t restrain the urge to meme.

Here’s Twitter’s analysis of Lil’ Kushner first major public statement. Read more…
