The Foo Fighters “RickRolled” the Westboro Baptist Church
For whatever reason, the hateful Westboro Baptist Church was protesting outside a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City on Friday, and the band decided to have a little fun with them. They hopped in the back of a pickup truck, and drove past the protestors, while blaring Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”. So, it was sort of like a live “RickRolling.” The band danced to the song, and held signs saying, quote, “You got Rickroll’d (Again)” and “Keep It Clean”. This was their second encounter with the Westboro bigots in Kansas City. Back in 2011, they confronted the protestors by dressing up like truckers and performing a song called “Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)” on a flat bed truck. Of course, the downside of all this is that it keeps Westboro Baptist Church in the news, and they were reveling in that on social media. Get more here.
Cops Detained Wiz Khalifa for Riding a Hoverboard
Wiz drew some heat at Los Angeles International Airport because he refused to stop riding a hoverboard. He Tweeted about it, and shared videos of several cops forcing him to the ground and cuffing him. In one, Wiz repeatedly says “I’m not resisting.” Although you could argue that he was resisting by not obeying the authorities in the airport. In any event, it seems like he was only detained, since there are no records of him being booked in jail. Here’s Wiz’s take “All because I didn’t want to ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next six months. Do what you want kids.” Get more here.

Josh Duggar Was Also on OK Cupid, And His Fake Profile Picture Cost Another Guy His Job

His name is Matthew McCarthy, and he’s a DJ. And he may have been chosen because his picture comes up when you do a Google Image search for “Random Guy”.
