    ABC’s Dirty Dancing Remake is a 2017 made-for-TV movie based on the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. Following a string of well-received and highly-viewed musical remakes, ABC’s Dirty Dancing became the subject of online mockery and critical derision.

    History

    On August 21st, 1987, Dirty Dancing, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, was released. The film grossed over $214 million and became the first film to sell over a million copies on home video. The soundtrack sold more than 32 million copies, becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time. The single “(I’ve Had The Time of My Life) won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.[10][11]

    Following the release of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, the 2004 Dirty Dancing, there was no talk of new Dirty Dancing films until 2011, when Lionsgate announced a remake.[9] One year later, Lionsgate shelved the remake.

    On December 8th 2015, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the ABC television network would be producing a Dirty Dancing remake starring Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Scream Queens) as Baby, written by Jessica Sharzer (American Horror Story) and directed by Wayne Blair (The Sapphires). The decision to remake the film followed a steady string of made-for-TV musical hits, including Grease Live! and Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do The Time Warp Again. Three months later, on February 23rd, 2016, producers cast dancer Colt Prattes to play the Patrick Swayze role of Johnny.[12]

    The remake aired on May 24th, 2017.

On May 24th, Twitter user @camacho_gen tweeted a picture of an empty auditorium (shown below, left) and wrote, “#DirtyDancing nice they included the shot of the people who appreciate this remake.” The tweet received more than 960 retweets and 3,600 likes.[14] That day, Twitter user @MichaelAusiello tweeted a gif of a woman saying “Bullshit” with the caption #DirtyDancing review in one word (shown below, right).[15] The tweet received more than 350 retweets and 1,300 likes.



    Several people pointed out the difference between the films’ famous lift scenes, comparing the two moments in both versions. Twitter user @bibble8gubbles tweeted a side-by-side comparison of the two scenes with the caption “When you order it online Vs when it arrives….#DirtyDancing.” The tweet (shown below, left) received more than 2,300 retweets and 4,900 likes.[16] Another Twitter user @StaceofBase20 posted the same image (shown below, right) and the caption “It’s like the epitome of a Pinterest fail. #DirtyDancing #nailedit.” The tweet received more than 2,500 retweets and 6,500 likes.[17]

    Overview

    Bryce Harper Hunter Strickland Brawl refers to a fight between baseball players Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and Hunter Strickland of the San Francisco Giants that occurred when Harper attacked the Strickland after being hit by a pitch.

    Background

    On May 29th, 2017, with his team down 2-0 in the eighth inning, Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland hit Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper in the hip with a fastball. Harper then charged at Strickland, tossing his helmet before the two exchanged blows, leading both teams to charge the field in an attempt to separate the players (shown below).



    Developments

    Immediately, people speculated if Strickland hit Harper intentionally. Strickland had given up home runs to Harper in the 2014 National League Division Series,[1] leading to speculation that the pitch was intentional. Strickland denied such claims, stating that he was only trying to pitch inside and missed. No players were injured in the brawl. As of May 30th, Major League Baseball is in the process of reviewing the incident and are yet to dole out punishments for both players.

    Online Reaction

    Online, several moments of the fight were joked about by Twitter users. Some of the most prevalent jokes centered around Harper’s helmet toss, which badly missed Strickland despite Harper being at point-blank range.




    Others joked about photographs of Harper being restrained by his teammates, which out of context seem like his teammates are hugging him from behind. The jokes were covered by Twitter Moments[2] and Washington Post.[3]

  • 05/30/17--13:50: Andy30
  • Andy30 is a Belgian user on Pokémon Showdown commonly found in the Dutch room. Andy likes to talk about his experiences with several women and the crazy antics that appear while doing so.

    Andy started out as killer30 in 2014, when he joined the newly created Dutch room on Showdown’s main server. Upon being active for a few months Andy reached the status of moderator, though due to a room restructuring lost his authority. Quickly after this Andy changed his name from killer30 to Andy30.

    The next two years we’d see Andy hopping through several third party servers, while still remaining active on the main Showdown server, where his experiences at home and with women became more clear to the public. Starting from 2016, Andy was seen less on these third party servers and became solely active in the Dutch room. This is where Andy as a meme blossomed and came to be the person we all know and love.

    About

    “First They Came…” is a poem by Martin Niemoller written as a critique of German intellectuals during the Nazi occupation of Germany in the 1930s that remained silent during the Nazi purging of groups they found undesirable. The poem has grown into a snowclone online and has been used more frequently during the rise of President Donald Trump.

    Origin

    While the exact date the poem was first published is unclear, the earliest times Niemoller used variations of the text are traced back to 1946.[1] The version of the text that appears in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum reads:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.
