The art of corporate social media is tricky and almost impossible to do well, but one handy "life hack" is to make sure you're not wading into an emotional discussion about domestic violence to make an accidentally tone-deaf joke.

In response to this depressing-yet-familiar language from an abused partner, the hashtag #whyIstayed started, where women and men explained what mental traps kept them in relationships like that and prevented them from seeing what was happening. Y'know. Like that their abusive partner had pizza.
