1) Pepsi Advert With Kendall Jenner Pulled After Huge Backlash
Pepsi has bowed to pressure and is “pulling” its controversial advert featuring Kendall Jenner at a protest.
The advert was widely criticised for appearing to trivialise demonstrations aimed at tackling social justice causes, suggesting that protesters and police would get along better if the former were kinder and being insensitive with regard to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The advert led to people sharing images of the civil rights movement and recent Black Lives Matter protests to illustrate why people find the advert inappropriate.
Kendall Jenner, a high-profile member of the celebrity Kardashian family, is shown in the advert stepping away from a modeling shoot to join a crowd of young, diverse protesters.
2) Three New Terrifying Preview Trailers For ‘Alien: Covenant’
Ahead of the release of Alien: Covenant next month, three new previews have been released. Entitled ‘Run’, ‘Hide’ and ‘Pray’, the clips give a new glimpse of the eerie atmosphere that runs through the film as the crew arrive on a dark and dangerous planet.
Though the footage seen so far seems to heavily lean on the idea Alien: Covenant acts as a kind of prequel to the 1979 original, it’s still ostensibly a Prometheus sequel. The film’s plot synopsis has already betrayed that the film’s titular Covenant crew uncover what they believe to be an uncharted paradise while journeying to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, soon coming to understand that this new world is actually a dark, threatening place, inhabited only by the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

3) Chimp At Zoo Throws Poo In Grandma’s Face!
People tend to joke a lot about chimpanzees throwing feces at zoo goers, but it became an unfortunate reality for one woman observing an animated chimpanzee over the weekend at the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids USA.
A YouTube video posted Sunday by a zookeeper captured the entire incident. It started with the chimpanzee getting riled up by onlookers. Then, before you know it, it swings its right arm between its legs and underhands a fresh bowel movement toward the crowd, with one piece landing on a woman’s face.
Right on the nose.
“It got grandma!” one person exclaimed as the woman looked on in disbelief.

6) These Flying Harry Styles Memes Are the Internet’s Best New Joke
Harry Styles is soaring back into pop culture prominence this week—literally.

And while there’s no doubt that the former One Direction heartthrob’s solo career will be a success thanks to the avid adoration of his fan base, Styles himself was found up in the air.
