5 Celebs Who Took A Serious L On Twitter This Week

It’s been a tough seven days for all of us, but these particular folks definitely took some serious dragging on Twitter this week. Which means that we can now chortle at their misfortune! Tee-hee!

5. Paul Ryan

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced this week that he would not be seeking re-election in November. So, Twitter “mourned” the best way they knew how: by mocking him mercilessly.

Axios reported that the difficulty of working with Donald Trump likely instigated Ryan’s decision — which is probably the only thing that Paul Ryan and I would ever agree upon.

4. Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg testified before a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees this week in an attempt to assure the government (and the public) that Facebook is handling its users’ private information responsibly. (Except for, you know, that time they didn’t.)

The Twitter jokes practically wrote themselves — from the old dudes on the committees who barely understood how to ask questions about Facebook, to the bizarre booster seat the Zuckerberg used to prop himself up during the hearing.

What a time to be alive, honestly.

3. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recently recorded a cover of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September” for Spotify.

However, people were decidedly less-than-enthusiastic about Swift’s whitewashed version of the iconic funk song.

Yeah, I don’t think this particular song was ever in need of a Taylor Swiftian makeover …

2. Donald Trump

It’s honestly more difficult to pinpoint a moment when people aren’t making fun of Donald Trump on Twitter.

This week, the highlight of the Trump Twitter Circus was probably Trump’s reaction to James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and LeadershipSpoiler alert: the POTUS was not hyped on Comey’s tell-all, particularly since the book painted a pretty unflattering portrait of Trump.

Obviously, Twitter thought it was highly ironic that Trump tried to called Comey an “untruthful slime ball” when that title is pretty much printed on Trump’s own business cards.

Also, considering those pee tape rumors, I think Trump should maybe be a bit more careful about flippantly accusing people of being “leakers” …

1. Mayochup


Heinz has apparently created a new bottled sauce called “Mayochup,” which — you guessed it — is simply a combination of mayonnaise and ketchup.

Twitter was all-too-eager to not only dunk on the horrible portmanteau of “Mayochup,” but to remind Heinz that this sauce has apparently already been invented in Utah, and it’s called “Fry sauce.”

People take their condiments seriously, y’all.
