Kim Kardashian’s cover photo for PAPER magazine did not “break the Internet” as intended. However, it caused quite a stir. Digitally altered versions have been floating around mocking her and many other celebrities have publically shamed her for being a mother and posing nude. However, her photo shoot had a fun, goofy undertone. Physically, her body is “hot,” however her confidence and ability to stay levelheaded through the backlash makes her truly hot this week.
Last week, The Washington Post published an article titled “Bill Cosby raped me. Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story?” written by Barbara Bowman about her experiences with the comedian, Cosby. Over the years, 13 women have accused Bill Cosby of rape and/or sexual assault. He launched a Twitter campaign asking his followers to make a meme of him. It quickly backfired, as Twitter users tweeted out memes such as “it’s not rape if you’re famous.” Since the allegations have come into the limelight, Cosby has been suspiciously mum, with the exception of his lawyer issuing a statement on BillCosby.com ending with “There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.”
