- Bomb threats and rape threats are running rampant again on social media. Hours after Twitter UK boss Tony Wang apologised to women for threats on Twitter, Mary Beard, classicist and TV presenter, received bomb threats and promptly reported them to the police.
- Moroccan King Mohammed VI pardoned a Spanish man charged with raping 11 children aged between four and 15. Protests leave many injured. A royal statement claims that the king was unaware of severity of the situation.
“The king was never informed – in any way or at any time – of the seriousness of the abject crimes of which the person concerned was convicted,” a statement released by the royal palace said on Sunday.
“It is clear that the sovereign would never have consented” to his release, given the “monstrous crimes” committed, the statement concluded.
- The new Doctor for Doctor Who has been announced. Peter Capaldi will take over for Matt Smith, the current Doctor. Many people, including myself, are upset that after 50 years of Doctor Who, it is still a white, British male taking the role.
- The new ad from Elle MacPherson is terrible.
First of all. this woman is either passed out, has been attacked or is in severe amount of pain. Why else would someone be crumpled on the floor like that with the door in a voyeuristic way? You have a lot of explaining to do on this advertisement.
