Dick of the Day — UFC’s Conor McGregor

conor-mcgregor-ufc-223-bus-attack-possible-jail-time-1

It probably goes without saying that UFC megastar Conor McGregor is a bit of a dick and usually I wouldn’t bat an eyelid at his various “dickish” antics, but the Irish fighter has crossed a line in spectacular fashion.

Not only did McGregor, 29 and acting 12, fly his gang of gypsies in his private plane to the UFC 223 Media Day at the Barclays Centre in New York and attack the UFC bus that housed many of the company’s top stars, but McGregor successfully injured co-worker Michael Chiesa, causing a hospitalisation and forcing Chiesa to pull out of an upcoming fight for medical reasons.

McGregor, who was targeting rival Khabib Nurmagomedov with his assault, injured one of the few UFC fighters that he has never had a public altercation with. Great going, Con.

It goes without saying that McGregor was arrested and charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief, and subsequently released on $50,000 bail. Small change for the man that made $100,000,000 million off of a recent boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. What probably hurts the controversial spitfire the most, however, is UFC boss Dana White stripped him of his coveted Lightweight Championship shortly after.

Apparently several lawsuits are brewing against McGregor with many on the bus citing damages of lost income;  Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa were both pulled from UFC 223 due to glass-related injuries sustained from McGregor’s actions, and others on the bus such as Rose Namajunas were reportedly “traumatised” by the incident.

Since McGregor has failed to apologise for his part in the melee and is rumoured to be using the situation to drum up interest in a fight with Khabib, we have to punish Conor in the one way we know how — Conor McGregor, you are our dick of the day.

Dick of the Day — Jennifer Lawrence Blames Donald Trump’s Victory for Hurricanes

 

'Passengers' film premiere, Los Angeles, USA - 14 Dec 2016

Former America’s Sweetheart and suddenly annoying actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has sensationally blamed Donald Trump’s election victory for Hurricane Imra and Hurricane Harvey.

In an interview with Channel 4 in Britain, Lawrence claimed Trump’s victory was “startling” and followed up by saying:

“You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath.”

She added: “You know, I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing.”

Do you remember the last Americans that slammed a President on foreign soil? I believe it was the Dixie Chicks. That didn’t end up working out too well for them.

Dick of the Day — Joss Whedon Outed By Ex-Wife

Fervent feminist Joss Whedon was exposed as a fervent hypocrite over the weekend when the filmmaker’s ex-wife, Kai Cole, revealed his promiscuous, calculated ways.

In a guest essay published by The Wrap, Cole wrote, ‘He used his relationship with me as a shield … so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist.’

Whedon, an unabashed advocate for feminism on social media, also allegedly cheated on Cole on numerous occasions.

‘Joss admitted that for the next decade and a half, he hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me,’ Cole surmised.

Cole states Whedon sent a letter admitting the extramarital affairs occurred because he was ‘surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women’.

‘It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can’t touch it,’ Cole claims Whedon’s letter read, which is at the least slightly disturbing.

A spokesperson for Whedon responded to the claims as they told DailyMail.com: ‘While this account includes several inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss will not be commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife.’

I, for one, am so surprised by the revelation that Joss Whedon is a hypocritical piece of shit. It’s not as if he judged the looks of cancer patients or he’s written material best described as sexist in the past.

This is the problem with being loud and forceful about your beliefs, Gossipers. You often get exposed as a hypocritical piece of garbage.

Dick of the Day — Microsoft KILLS Paint

Microsoft announced the unthinkable recently — the company is removing Microsoft Paint in the next Windows 10 update.

Released first in 1985, Microsoft Paint has become a fixture of childhoods and drug addicts everywhere with its fun, junky drawings.

Microsoft has also announced Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list will be removed in the update. Paint 3D will replace Microsoft Paint on Windows computers.

How will I draw rudimentary images now? Screw you, Microsoft. You’re our dick of the day!

 

Dick of the Day — Netflix Upsets Nerds, Removes Futurama

Terrible news everybody!

Netflix committed a heinous sin over the past week by removing the entire Futurama series from their streaming platform.

Nerds… I mean, fans of the show are not happy with the decision by the media giant and have responded in the most millennial way possible… By posting angry memes and videos.

Twitter and Reddit have been run amuck with these Futurama memes and references, leaving unaware users confused and wondering where the usual boring anti-Trump crap has vanished to.

I, as a complete Futurama nerd, am outraged by this decision by those dicks over at Netflix. Even if I rarely viewed the show on the platform (I own the series on these crazy silver discs called DVDs), Netflix has robbed their audience of the greatest animated show ever released, barring BoJack Horseman and maybe the early Simpsons. Possibly also The Fairly OddParents.

Irregardless, Netflix sucks and they’re our dicks of the day. Especially Zoidberg.
