5. Bieber haters. I used to Belieb in the democratic process, but no more. Even though a petition to deport Justin Bieber garnered way more than the 100,000 signatures required to get a response from the White House, the official response was "Sorry to disappoint, but we won't be commenting on this one." Wait a second. "No comment" counts as an official response? I thought this was America! It's our right as citizens to demand that our leaders speak out on pointless bullshit. How can we know which politicians to elect if we don't know if they hate the same celebrities as us? SRD

 

4. Delino DeShields, Jr. Delino DeShields, Jr. (son of baseball star Delino DeShields) just started his second season as a minor league player in the Houston Astros franchise after a great rookie season. Taking that classic baseball advice of "keep your eye on the ball" all the way, Delino let down his Deshields at the plate and got beaned in the face by a 90 mph fastball. Apparently, he never saw it leave the pitcher's hand (probably because it was headed right for his eye, and just started getting bigger instead of moving). His left cheekbone is broken and will take weeks to recover, although his teammates' photos of his swollen face will never go away. —JMC

3. Terry Richardson. Terry Richardson is a famous photographer and renowned scumbag who is trying to cling to the story that he's just a regular scumbag and not the kind of scumbag who uses his power to pressure young models into unwanted sexual activity. That campaign took another hit this weekend, when model Emma Appleton tweeted out a screencap of a message sent to her by Richardson promising a Vogue photo shoot for sex. If you don't know, a Vogue photoshoot is a pretty big f'ing deal, and one has to wonder how many girls either silently declined for fear of losing work in the future or reluctantly accepted because Richardson has the power to make or break careers. The number of stories that are far more graphic than this (though without the same evidence) is more obscene than anything Richardson has produced, and you can read more about his fondness for telling 19-year-old models they should hold his penis during photoshoots over at Jezebel. A rep for Richardson has denied Appleton's allegation, calling the image a "fake." —JMC

2. Del Taco customers, who just wanted a cheap taco dinner and instead got charged thousands of dollars. There's nothing worse than waking up hungover, covered in salsa, and realizing you spent thousands of dollars on tacos the night before. Unfortunately for customers at a southern California Del Taco, that was exactly the scenario they faced after a credit card error made many people get charged entirely too much for their burritos. One man said his wife was charged $10,200 for a meal that was supposed to cost $10.20 (which frankly still seems too expensive). Another customer spent $4,050 on something called a CrunchTada pizza, which sounds amazing but can't possibly be worth more than a couple hundred bucks. All of the charges will be refunded, but hopefully customers learn their lesson and start paying for their tacos the way God intended: with loose change from their car's glove compartment. —SRD

1. A kid who got suspended for asking Miss America to prom. This story is hard to believe, and not just if you have trouble comprehending that the antiquated Miss America pageant still exists. Miss America Nina Davuluri recently visited Central York High School in Pennsylvania to talk to students about careers in technology and engineering and the importance of diversity. During a Q&A session, 18-year-old Patrick Farves asked Davuluri if she would go to prom with him, and then brought her a plastic flower. Farves was suspended for three days in the kind of overreaction that reminds me exactly why being a high school student sucked. When she heard about Farves' punishment, Davuluri reached out to administrators, saying she couldn't make prom because of a previous engagement to smile elsewhere, but she hoped the school would "reconsider their decision." Pretty girls are so nice. —SRD
