ASOS is selling a bathing suit that ‘can’t be worn in water’ and people are ACTUALLY buying it
What’s that phrase about a sucker being born every minute?
There are some stores that we just keep going back to, time after time, despite knowledge we shouldn't. Like Forever21. Do we feel good shopping there? Absolutely not. Will we ever stop? Not even when we're 32. And ASOS just so happens to be one of those stores.
Some of their fuck-ups have been way worse than others — like they time they were forced to remove a picture of white make-up on a black model’s skin, or the time they had to to apologize after selling a South Asian headpiece, known as a maang tikka, under the description of “Faux Pearl Chandelier Hair Clip.”
Well in today's trippy ASOS news, I'm glad to announce they're not being accused of overt racism, but they are doing something else that's pretty weird.
They're selling a one-piece bathing suit that 'Cannot be worn in water'
Somehow it still turned into making fun of women

'I guess they made it for those sweet Insta pics'
It's white. I bet they are afraid that it turn transparent when wet.
I guess they made it only for those sweet insta pictures.

Apparently they aren't the only ones selling non-swimmable swimwear

I guess it’s so you can’t sue them incase something fails in the water. But I'm not going to sit here and lie to you — I still considered buying it.
This is how much it costs to be Gigi Hadid
Living her life is not cheap
by Ari Bines
Whether you know her as the face of Maybelline or her occasional cultural appropriation, Gigi Hadid is one woman who practically owns the runway. She's the fifth highest-paid supermodel in the world, which means she gets a lot of free shit to post to her 40 million followers, but she still coughs up a lot…
Spend $1 million on body modifications and find out which ‘totally natural’ celebrity you are
Which plastic are you?
by Ari Bines
When you're bored and have a fuckton of bread in your bank account, what else is there to do than to fix what your mama couldn't give you? Celebrities love to deny that they've ever had some work done, but it's pretty peculiar how some people can have a year's worth of glow-up in a…

But now, Nike's taken it to horrifying extremes. The brand's upcoming product launch is the dumbest, most ridiculous idea to ever hit…
