Lizzo, known for her twerking and body-positive anthems, recently summoned a swarm of trolls - but not the kind you're thinking of. At a concert, Lizzo played a 200-year old flute once owned by James Madison, and some of the internet was NOT pleased with the twerking involved. And on a slightly different note, one Jeffery Moore recently resigned from his position as Gadsden County Commissioner after pictures surfaced of him dressed as KKK member for Halloween – somehow, he thought that would be an appropriate and fun costume to wear, apparently. Just as the cherry on top, he was appointed by Florida Republican Ron DeSantis and was serving in Florida’s only predominantly Black county. And finally, Redditors are trolling Texas' content-moderation law by requiring every comment on their subreddit to call Greg Abbott a piss baby. While some might see this behaviour as infantile or unproductive, we think it's kinda creative (and funny).
