Selena Gomez Cancels ‘Revival’ Tour And Checks Into Rehab Due To ‘Mental Health’

Unless you’re a devoted Selenator, you probably haven’t noticed that Selena Gomez has been M.I.A. for the past couple of weeks.

The 24-year-old singer canceled the remaining 34 dates of her “Revival” tour, stopped working on new music, and the queen of Instagram hasn’t posted on social media since mid-August.

Although fans are starting to worry, her reason for unplugging is admirable. It’s been reported that the Mexican-American songstress has checked into rehab to care for her “mental health.”

Stay strong, Selena!

According to US Weekly, the former Disney Channel star has been recovering at a treatment facility in Tennessee to control her “anxiety, panic attacks and depression” as a result of her lupus disease. “She can go to a very dark place,” reports US Weekly, adding that Gomez is at a “private, quiet and super intense” place.

Although the “Kill Em’ With Kindness” singer has been absent from all social gatherings for the past eight weeks, she’s been spotted spending time with her family outside of rehab. Her most recent adventure included dinner with her mom and stepdad at a restaurant in Tennessee.

Thank you Selena for being a real inspiration not only to those who are dealing with the same issues as you, but to all of your fans!

You the real MVP!

La Carnita — a taqueria out of Toronto — is facing criticism for using one of Donald Trump’s slogans in a recent Instagram post. And if you were wondering, YES, IT’S THAT SLOGAN, with a slight twist: “What if Donald said, “grab her by the taco.” First, Donald Trump has probably actually said that, or will say it soon. Second, if he had said it, taco sales would plummet because it paints a horribly unappetizing image. The offending Instagram photo was taken down shortly after people unleashed a barrage of social media outrage. However, screen caps of the original image still exists online, as the above photo indicates.

Unlike Donald Trump, La Carnita released a series of tweets apologizing for their failed attempt at humor. People weren’t having it.

The company posted a longer apology on their Facebook page. Here’s how they wrapped it up:

We understand the anger and discussion surrounding this issue. A large percentage of our staff and management team are women. And we do everything we can to promote a diverse team and offer equal opportunity in an environment that’s free of harassment. We’re sorry to have let everyone down and we’re trying to do the right thing to remedy and prevent this from happening again.

Sadly, the company has a history of demeaning women to make a joke. Back in 2014, the company participated in the #tacHOES trend.

Note: The Instagram photo in the tweet has been removed, so use your imagination… or don’t.

And of course people weren’t having it.

Then there was that time La Carnita allegedly “fat-shamed” a woman who applied for a job.

La Carnita responded with mandatory professionalism, but their objectification is beginning to feel like the norm, rather than the exception.

La Carnita should have known never to use Trump to promote anything, as Hacienda Mexican Restaurant found out back in August.

That company faced anger over the insensitivity of their slogan and quickly removed the offending billboard. Using the wall as a joke definitely seems tame compared to what we now know about Trump.
