Not even a week after undergoing surgery and revealing he has brain cancer, Sen. John McCain made his way back to the U.S. Capitol and voted in favor of repealing Obamacare. “I voted for the motion to proceed to allow debate to continue and amendments to be offered,” he stated. “I will not vote for the bill as it is today. It’s a shell of a bill right now. We all know that.” But you think Twitter was buying anything he had to say on the Senate floor? Hell nah. Many took to the social media platform to express disdain, skepticism, and outrage, with a few humorously comparing him to the deceitful Rose from Get Out. Ultimately, however, the vote to repeal Obamacare failed with a final tally of 43-57. The Senate will vote on new proposals on Wednesday.
Another day, another lawsuit filed against Kylie Jenner—this time by Temptation Neon, who says Kylie jacked their glossy lip bite logo to promote her new reality show, Life of Kylie. According to TMZ, Sara Pope, the painter who created the famous logo, is suing both Jenner and NBC Universal, which is E!’s parent company. Kylie’s yet to issue a statement, but girl, ain’t you tired yet? Not too long ago, Kylie dodged another lawsuit by Vlada Haggerty, who called her out for copying her dripping lip art. “This is the second time that Kylie Cosmetics has taken images without any acknowledgement and without the payment of a proper licensing fee, which amounts to copyright infringement,” Stephen McArthur, Haggerty’s attorney, wrote in a statement. “Additionally, Kylie Cosmetics sells its products under a logo that is so similar to the dripping lip art style that symbolizes Ms. Haggerty’s makeup artist brand that she receives daily inquires as to whether she is associated with Kylie Cosmetics.” Just stop already.
Following the announcement of its “state of emergency,” the MTA’s reportedly working to fix NYC’s janky-ass subway system with an $836 million proposal that “focuses on ways to immediately improve service, and begin long-overdue upgrades and repairs” according to NY Mag. Some solutions they’re exploring include the removal of seats from overcrowded trains and improving communication (e.g. Wtf does “train traffic ahead” actually mean?). This all sounds well and good, we guess, but we’ll believe it when we actually see it.
