CNN Trolls The White House By Sending Sketch Artist To Press Briefing

On Thursday, going back on years of tradition, the White House announced that they would not allow audio or video recording during the day’s press briefing. They later changed their minds and agreed to allow audio recordings only, inexplicably.

Today, CNN pretty hilariously trolled the White House by sending their Supreme Court sketch artist Bill Hennessy to the press room to capture the scene.

It’s really paints a wonderful picture, doesn’t it? You can almost see Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s fumble his way through another Trump tweet storm.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Director Masterfully Trolls Marvel Executive Impersonator

The plan was simple: Open an Instagram account under the name Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and producer of a gazillion blockbusters, and begin messaging James Gunn, director of the fantastically popular “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, thinking no further about a producer and a director of such caliber using Instagram’s chat feature as a standard medium of communication.

And yet whoever hatched it likely underestimated Gunn’s appetite for internet trolling. Both sides appeared locked in a surprisingly lengthy battle of one-upmanship over Marvel secrets in the ensuing conversation. 

The director shared screenshots over Facebook Thursday afternoon to document his encounter with the mysterious Feige impersonator, including many attempts to offer false information about current Marvel projects.

Gunn announced in April that he will be helming a follow-up to “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2.”

Rest assured, Groot will not lose his head, probably.

Expert Baker Trolls Donald Trump With Cakes That Use His Own Words

Brooklyn baker Kat Thek is the brainchild behind Troll Cakes, a new bakery/detective agency that specializes in turning trolls’ mean internet comments into delicious cakes.

But it’s Thek’s “Tiny Hands Special” ― meant for President Trump ― that’s got our attention. This “bigly satisfying” deal means that for only $ 30, you can get one of Trump’s tweets or comments printed on a cake and sent straight to the White House. 

Below is an example of some of Trump’s comments paraphrased from an Associated Press interview on a Troll Cake: 

“It would be a tremendous, terrific mistake to deprive our nation’s noisiest troll of his incredibly deserved Troll Cakes,” Thek told HuffPost via email last week. “Our ‘Tiny Hands Special’ has been well received but it’s also gotten us asked if we’re skirting the line of terrorism. Here’s where we land on that: if putting the president’s exact words into icing on a cake is considered an act of terror, the problem is not the cake.” 

She added, “However, if the White House no longer wishes to receive Troll Cakes, we’re ready to reroute shipments to Mar-a-Lago. We are hopeful that the State Department will include Troll Cakes as a dining option in their next Mar-a-Lago ad.” 

“We’d also like to note that Trump’s decision to incorporate a cake description into his account of the recent Syrian missile strike (it was chocolate and ‘the most beautiful’) was not a sponsored Troll Cakes promotion,” Thek said jokingly. 

If you’d like to just take on a regular troll, there’s a $ 35 option in which the company will bake chocolate chip brownie cake, decorate it with frosting, sprinkles and the comment and then ship it to the troll’s home or work address. If you don’t know where the troll lives, the price goes up to $ 60. 

That means someone’s hateful comment like “Crash in a plane” would be turned into a yummy masterpiece like this. Eat it and weep, trolls: 

Internet comment –> Troll Cake Delivery included @ trollcakes.com #trollcakes

A post shared by Kat Thek (@kat_thek) on

Thek also told HuffPost about coming up with the concept of Troll Cakes and revealed the cake she recently made for one of Amy Schumer’s trolls. 

When did you start Troll Cakes? How did you come up with the concept? 

The troll that really sparked the whole enterprise was on Dolly Parton’s Facebook page. There was something simultaneously infuriating and hilarious about seeing somebody try to bully Dolly Parton. I mean, who would do that? And is the goal to hurt Dolly’s feelings? She’s a 71-year-old millionaire who grew up in a one-room cabin and now wears sequined jumpsuits — a poorly spelled Facebook post isn’t going to take the spring out of her step one bit.

Trolling anyone, especially Dolly Parton, is like aggressively giving the finger to a sunset or a panda or bag of craisins. You’re just letting everybody around you know that you’re a grumpy idiot. It’s fun to maintain that idiocy but then flip the grumpy into something obnoxiously cheerful, like a surprise cake in the mail. 

What do you like most about Troll Cakes? 

Troll Cakes combines our deep interest in cake, catty comments, the mail, being nosy, and having a reason to speak like Julia Child. Putting all of those things together saves a lot of time. 

Why do you call yourselves a detective agency as well? 

We’re a full service operation ― if you don’t know your troll’s home or work address, we’ll track ‘em down.  

What else should we know about Troll Cakes? 

We love sending Troll Cakes between friends ― some of our favorite deliveries have been one friend trolling another for oversharing on Facebook. 

We made the attached “You Donkey Witch” Troll Cake from a comment on Amy Schumer’s instagram and then made a Twitter account to holler at Amy to see if she’d like us to send. No news yet: 

We’re going to start taking Thek’s message to heart ― if you see something, cake something: 

See something? Cake something. #trollcakes

Twitter Trolls ‘Ghost In The Shell’ For Whitewashing By Using Movie’s Own Ad

Twitter users completely turned a “Ghost in the Shell” ad campaign on its head to make a majorly important point. 

The film released a meme-maker with the intention of promoting the film. But instead, people across the interwebs brilliantly used it to generate snarky memes to call out the film for its casting of Scarlett Johansson in an Asian role. The actress plays Major Motoko Kusanagi ― or “The Major” ― in “Ghost in the Shell,” a film adaptation of a Japanese manga. 

The “I Am Major” meme-maker asks users to complete the statement “I Am…” in a template, encouraging them to fill in the blank with what makes them “unique.” They’re also invited to upload their own photos. 

But that’s not how many snarky individuals used the tool. 

From mocking the actress’ lack of connection to Japanese culture, to pointing out different instances of Hollywood’s whitewashing controversies, Twitter made it known that they won’t be fans of the movie. 

“I am unable to say Motoko Kusanagi,” reads one meme, with the words across a photo of the actress’ face. 

Another that says “I am in love with white feminism,” accompanied by an image of the actress, seems to refer to Johansson’s recent interview with Marie Claire. In the interview, she defended the film’s casting, saying she’d “never presume to play another race of a person.” She also took the opportunity to applaud the anime franchise for featuring a female protagonist. 

The film, which will be released later this month, has been criticized for whitewashing ever since early 2015, when it was revealed that Johansson would occupy the lead role.

Big names in the Asian community, including actresses Constance Wu and Ming-Na Wen, spoke out against the film. And a petition from Care2, calling for the film to be recast, generated more than 104,000 signatures. 

The “Ghost In The Shell” controversy comes at a time when several other films have featured white actors in roles that many feel should’ve gone to Asians. Emma Stone received backlash for playing part-Asian character Allison Ng in the 2015 film “Aloha.” The next year, Tilda Swinton found herself under fire for taking the role of “The Ancient One,” a Tibetan sorcerer, in the Marvel Comics-based movie “Doctor Strange.” Swinton later solicited Margaret Cho’s opinion on the subject and, while doing so, decided to shift the conversation to feminism, downplaying race in the process. 

Actual Asians, however, have had a hard time being cast in Hollywood movies. They nabbed no lead roles and just 3.9 percent of speaking roles in 2015’s top films. Factoring in the recent years’ whitewashing controversies, it’s no wonder Twitter didn’t hold back with its trolling of “Ghost in the Shell.” 

Check out more of the witty memes below.

Seth Rogen Not-So-Subtly Trolls Donald Trump With James Franco Photo

Seth Rogen is the latest star to poke fun at President Donald Trump.

On Monday, the president tweeted, “I don’t know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy – yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!” 

Rogen wasn’t having it.

In response to Trump ― who continually denies knowing Putin despite the fact that he’s been quoted saying he “got to know him very well” when they appeared on “60 Minutes” ― the actor shared the below photo with the caption, “I DO NOT know James Franco. I have NO relationship with him, never worked with him, and the haters are going CRAZY.”

Rogen’s latest tweet comes one day after he mocked Trump for writing, “Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election,” on the social media app. 

In response to that, Rogen wrote, “Any negative reviews to my movies are #FakeReviews.”

Rogen has also spoken out against Trump’s executive order, which barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country. (The ban was halted by a federal judge last week.)

The “Sausage Party” star joins the large list of celebrities, including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, who have been vocal in their opposition to Trump since he won the presidential election in November. 

We can only assume the criticisms will keep on coming.

Muslim Woman Coolly Beats Trolls At Their Own Game

Islamophobes know how to use the anonymity of social media to spread misinformation about Muslims and their faith. And Muslim women who try to speak up and create spaces for themselves online often find that they become targets of this cyber harassment.

Farha, a 19-year-old Canadian college student, told The Huffington Post that she’s used to receiving these kinds of ridiculous (and utterly ignorant) messages about her faith. The student, who asked to withhold her last name for her safety, said she usually ignores these messages. But a few months back, when some anonymous trolls tried playing games with her, she decided to get creative ― and serve them a smooth, chilled glass of their own haterade. 

Farha said she received an anonymous question on her Tumblr account, the bootydiaries, about six months ago. The user asked, “why can’t muslims tell other muslims to stop killing people? [SIC]” Farha said she kept thinking about the message and “chuckling at how illogical it was.”

So this time, she decided to give the troll a long, satirical answer, mocking the idea that the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are a well-organized monolith.

When she received a response that seemed to be defending the first questioner, Farha kept dishing it out.

Farha told The Huffington Post that she’s often been on the receiving end of hateful Islamophobic and racist messages.

She said decided to share these conversations on Twitter last week because of President Donald Trump’s actions against Muslims, and after hearing about the attack on a mosque in Quebec. Farha said she feels like it’s  “getting more and more socially acceptable to hate Muslims.” 

The Twitter post has gone viral, with more than 19,000 retweets.

“There are like 1.6 billion of us yet we’re held responsible for something caused by few, asked why we don’t condemn them when we do, asked why we don’t ‘stop ISIS’ when we’re the ones they target,” she wrote in an email.

Farha said that being a Muslim online right now means “being careful with your words and having thick skin.” She’s found a way to deal with those pressures by using humor to address hate. 

“I use sarcasm because I’m tired of constantly having to smile as I answer ignorant hateful comments from fear that they’ll label me as an evil and mean Muslim. Wearing a hijab suddenly means representing every Muslim on Earth, and if you answer hate with hate then you get a nice meal of ‘wowwww’ with a side of ‘all muslims are hateful!!!’,” she said. “But I’m on a diet.”

“Sarcasm is a fun route, but more importantly, it’s a safe route. I want to make people laugh but also make a point.”

Michael B. Jordan Responds To Trolls Saying A Black Man Can’t Play Johnny Storm

Michael B. Jordan is responding to Internet trolls saying a black man can’t play Johnny Storm in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” film.

After online commenters expressed their displeasure over the fact that the actor is playing a character who was blond and blue-eyed in the comic, the “Friday Night Lights” and “Fruitvale Station” star penned an essay in Entertainment Weekly addressing the topic:

Sometimes you have to be the person who stands up and says, “I’ll be the one to shoulder all this hate. I’ll take the brunt for the next couple of generations.” I put that responsibility on myself. People are always going to see each other in terms of race, but maybe in the future we won’t talk about it as much. Maybe, if I set an example, Hollywood will start considering more people of color in other prominent roles, and maybe we can reach the people who are stuck in the mindset that “it has to be true to the comic book.” Or maybe we have to reach past them.

To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it.

After the essay was published, Jordan took to Twitter to thank fans expressing their support:

“Fantastic Four” hits theaters Aug. 7. Head over to Entertainment Weekly to read Jordan’s insightful piece in full.
