This Week in Questionable Decisions…

  1. R. Kelly released a 19-minute song called “I Admit,” touching on everything from his sexual assault allegations to his child bride Aaliyah to being illiterate. More like “I Deflect.”
  2. A Massachusetts man was arrested for stripping naked at a Planet Fitness. In his defense, he said he thought it was a “judgement-free zone.” Well played, sir.
  3. Color Me Badd may be down to two members, but the ’90s band still performs. And at a recent show, Bryan Abrams capped off a performance of “I Wanna Sex You Up” by shoving bandmate Mark Calderon and sending him to the hospital.
  4. An Italian photographer staged poor Indian children in front of tables of prop food for a photo series some are calling “poverty porn.”
  5. Someone at Washington, D.C.-based burger chain Z-Burger thought it would be a great idea to tweet an ISIS-themed burger promo. The text (now deleted) read, “When you say you want a burger and someone says okay lets hit McDonalds” with a photo of slain journalist James Foley moments before he was murdered in Syria. Guys.
  6. What’s this year’s hottest back-to-school trend? Bulletproof everything. Ugh.
  7. Mayonnaise ice cream is a thing. *heave*
  8. Ving Rhames shared a story about the time police held him at gunpoint in his own home after a neighbor called the cops about a “large black man” breaking into the house. White people ’bout to lose their 911 privileges indefinitely.
  9. Everyone on the internet is doing the #InMyFeelingsChallenge, based on a viral dance video set to the recent Drake track. Celebs and normies alike have jumped on board, acting out the moves in various situations. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for things to get out of hand, with folks jumping out of moving cars to dance on public roads. At least one person has been hit by a car now. The National Transportation Safety Board had to put out a warning that people could bust their asses or wind up in jail if they pull this stupid shit on the street.
  10. This L.A. Times headline: “They don’t own homes. They don’t have kids. Why millennials are plant addicts”
