This Dad Turned Their Garage Into A Disco For His Mija To Escape An Argument With Her Mom

We all know that where there is love, there is war. Disagreeing with your parents is normal, and so is fighting with your parents. We love the way one dad intervened an escalating fight between his daughter and wife, and so do 9 million other Twitter users.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her dad dancing in their garage to Lady Gaga with an actual disco ball and the video went viral. With over 800k likes and 9 million views, it’s safe to say the world prefers this alternative to luchando con madre.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her father dancing to Lady Gaga and he is the clear winner.

They spent an hour dancing out the bad vibes left behind by the argument. It is one of the greatest ways we have ever seen someone deescalate an argument. 10/10

That said, the comment section lit up in good and bad ways.

Of course, most of the world just straight up stans this duo. Can’t imagine why anyone would use their garage in any other way.

Some were really feeling for how her mom might be feeling a little left out at this point.

If lighthearted bonding, while you’re raging on the inside isn’t painful enough, the video went viral. Thanks, internet, for always getting in the middle of relationships.

Reynoso wasn’t going to have anyone dissing her mami, as any good Latino child.

Nice comeback, Reynoso. Life is in session, folks. Anything perfect sounds boring as hell. Also, perfect relationships are not a real thing.

Ivana took her 15 minutes of fame to plug three important issues to her.

@ivanaamia / Twitter

Reynoso wanted to take the opportunity to remind folks that trans rights are human rights, to believe women and stop littering. Solid messaging. She even added her Instagram handle to the tweet for good measure.

With that, the standom grew.

Reynoso probably knew that this video would become the news of yesteryear by the end of the day, and jumped on the moment to normalize the issues dearest to her. That’s a strategy for the greater good right there.

Folks were inspired to see such a light and fun father-daughter relationship, as well.

For those of us who don’t speak with our fathers or who never experienced playfulness with a parent, getting a glimpse into an hour of plain fun in the garage is like a breath of fresh air.

The comment threat is half made up of praise and adoration.

Wait for it. You know the other half is going to be straight hate (as in puro hate, that happens to single-handedly be from straight people).

Then there’s this men’s rights activist.

This is a case of #BlackLivesMatter. Yes, sure, all lives matter, but that is mega tone-deaf. Men are assaulted, and it’s horrible and it shouldn’t happen. However, the U.S. is fighting like hell right now over abortion rights.

Allies were here to diss the transphobic trolls.

@vinny_427 / Twitter

Of which there were far too many. Thank you @paranoidangel18, for stopping hate in its tracks.

Reading a comment thread is always going to be painful, but is nearly unbearable when transphobia is involved.

@twinklouee / Twitter

Reynoso brought up an important message, which in turn gave us all a reminder that the hate for trans people is very real in this country. We need more Ivanas plugging the cause.

In conclusion, we stan a woke, progressive Disco Queen.

@pinkpolitic / Twitter

Thank you for sharing this moment of fun, and giving us all one more option to turn to when tensions start running high. ????????????

Twitter’s AIs Prefer Ted Cruz With Boobs And White Skin Over Black

Twitter’s AIs Prefer Ted Cruz With Boobs And White Skin Over Black

Ever notice how on some social platforms like Twitter or Instagram that you yourself are mysteriously unable to crop your display images on your own? That’s because Twitter prefers to let their algorithms make the decision. Over the weekend users on Twitter discovered the surprising dangers of letting algorithms crop your own images.

Education tech researcher Colin Madland drew attention to the issue while speaking out about how the video-calling program Zoom, often crops the head out of his black person coworker while on calls.

It didn’t take long for Madland and other users to discover that Twitter’s AIs use discriminatory equations to prioritize certain faces as well. In short, the social platform’s AIs prefer white faces over Black ones.

In response to the discoveries, a Twitter spokesperson acknowledged that the company was looking into the issue “Our team did test for bias before shipping the model and did not find evidence of racial or gender bias in our testing. But it’s clear from these examples that we’ve got more analysis to do. We’re looking into this and will continue to share what we learn and what actions we take,” they stated.

Of course, Madland’s discovery is nothing new. In 2019, test results from the National Institute of Standards and Technology revealed that some of the strongest algorithms online were much more likely to confuse the faces of Black women than those of white women, or Black or white men. “The NIST test challenged algorithms to verify that two photos showed the same face, similar to how a border agent would check passports,” Wired points out. “At sensitivity settings where Idemia’s algorithms falsely matched different white women’s faces at a rate of one in 10,000, it falsely matched black women’s faces about once in 1,000—10 times more frequently. A one in 10,000 false match rate is often used to evaluate facial recognition systems.”

Still, it didn’t take long for users on the platform to ask what other physical preferences Twitter has.

Turns out the AIs prefer Ted Cruz with large anime breasts over a normal-looking Ted Cruz.

(To better understand this Tweet, click the link above)

The user who tested the image of Cruz, found that Twitter’s algorithm on the back end selected what part of the picture it would showcase in the preview and ultimately chose both images of Cruz with a large anime chest.

It’s nothing new that Twitter has its massive problems.

For a platform that so controls and oversees so much of what we consume and how we now operate, it’s scary to know how Twitter chooses to display people with different skin tones. The round of jokes and Twitter experiments by users has only revived concerns on how “learning” computer algorithms fuel real-world biases like racism and sexism.

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B and her sister are being sued for defamation of character after a viral video taken by Hennessy Carolina Almánzar. The video shows two men, one wearing a MAGA hat, and one woman telling Hennessy to move her car, which is parked on the beach.

Earlier this month, Cardi B shared a video taken by her sister showing a confrontation over where a car was parked.

Cardi B, who is notorious for having widely broadcast Twitter feuds with people, posted the video in response to a tweet from Candace Owens. Owens is a controversial conservative figure whose brand is all about shock and awe. Owens famously said she thinks it would be okay if “Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well.”

Immediately, there was skepticism about the incident since the video starts during the confrontation.

Responding to nay-sayers, Cardi B shared a video of her sisters voice messages sent to her IG DMs. Hennessy claims in the messages that the white men were the aggressors against her and her girlfriend while they were on the beach.

The videos did not convince some people that her sister wasn’t in the wrong.

Cardi B’s tweet is filled with responses questioning the video and denying its authenticity. The argument immediately turned political because of the mention of Trump and Trump supporters. The conversation on Twitter is divided among people who believe Cardi B and her sister and those who don’t.

Now, Cardi B and Hennessy are being sued by the beachgoers in the video.

“These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” beachgoers’ Miller Place attorney John Ray said, according to ABC7NYC.

The lawsuit claims defamation of character because of the language used in the video against them.

According to Billboard, plaintiffs Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon claim that they had approached Hennessy and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, blocked them in with how she parked her car. The lawsuit states that the men asked for Diaz to move her car and that’s when Hennessy started to record the video and hurl names and insults at them.

This story is developing and mitú will be updating as the story unfolds.
