Social Media Goes Wild After Shocking Mix-Up At The Oscars

Oops

Anything can happen on live TV.

On Sunday night, the Oscars seemingly came to a very expected end with “La La Land” taking home the Best Picture award. However, a few moments into the film crew’s acceptance speech, Warren Beatty came back onto the stage to announce he had made a mistake and added that “Moonlight” had actually won the award.


While no presenter has ever admitted to mistaking the name on the envelope, theories abound that 1993’s Best Supporting Actress winner Marissa Tomei was wrongfully given the award by presenter Jack Palance. The rumor, however, has been thoroughly debunked.

Perhaps all this added drama will help the flagging ratings of the Oscars. One place the moment surely won big was on social media, where news outlets, fans, and actors had a field day with the upset. Check out a few of the reactions below.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
