BuzzFeed, the pearl-clutching website that has been triggered into dropping ads for Donald Trump, has published some pretty nasty things that are more offensive than the short-fingered vulgarian.
BuzzFeed founder and CEO Jonah Peretti announced Monday that the website will back out of its $1.3 million advertising agreement with the Republican National Committee because Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, and he is oh-so-gross.
In the announcement, Peretti explained that BuzzFeed had signed a deal back in April with the RNC to run advertisements for the party, but now has decided to renege on the deal after Trump became the presumptive nominee more than a month ago.
“Trump advocates banning Muslims from traveling to the United States, he’s threatened to limit the free press, and made offensive statements toward women, immigrants, descendants of immigrants, and foreign nationals,” the statement reads. “The Trump campaign is directly opposed to the freedoms of our employees in the United States and around the world and in some cases, such as his proposed ban on international travel for Muslims, would make it impossible for our employees to do their jobs.”
The announcement is truly baffling for a number of reasons, but perhaps the most confusing thing about it is how hypocritical it is. Let’s be real here: BuzzFeed publishes lots of things that are far more offensive than ads for Trump.
Here are just a few of the ickiest and most offensive posts from BuzzFeed’s archives.
1. Can You Guess Who Has The Biggest Dick?!
Yes. This is an actual interactive quiz that BuzzFeed published.
And the winner is Jasper, who apparently struggles to sit down in a bus without others observing the outline of his man package. We shouldn’t have to say this, but objectifying men to this degree — literally measuring their genitalia and then making jokes about it — is not cool, BuzzFeed. We’re not even going to get into the likely racist stereotypes this perpetuates.
2. Moms Who Let Their Boyfriends Abuse Their Children Don’t Deserve Jail Time!
In an long-form feature article published in 2014, BuzzFeed news reporter Alex Campbell wrote a piece in defense of a mom who let her abusive boyfriend kill her three-year-old son. Campbell questions whether the mother who allowed her son to be beaten to death should have been sent to jail.
Looks like Donald Trump isn’t the only one who likes to throw this term around. BuzzFeed likes to use the word “pussy,” a lot. This is a nasty-sounding word for a woman’s privates that’s more offensive to the ears than “moist” is.
4. This Guy Doing This Incredibly Nasty Video Demo
The website also published this super-gross video of a man who filmed himself demonstrating his (ummm, technique?) for how things should get done south of the border.
5. Period Sex!
Ah, one of life’s greatest questions: to do it or abstain while a woman is undergoing her monthly cycle? BuzzFeed made a video in which people explain the pros and cons of getting it on while bleeding. Yum!
6. Would You Rather Have Diarrhea Here Or There?
That brings us to BuzzFeed’s fascination with poop!
Here’s a listacle of 22 faces everyone who has pooped will immediately recognize, 16 dating horror stories involving fecal matter that will scar you for life, 15 diarrhea horror stories that also explain why you should never take a chance on a fart, and a list of 25 places you need to poop before you die.
