This Week’s Top Five Most Ridiculous Stories from The Daily Mail

1. What a tweet: Louis Tomlinson branded ‘irresponsible’ after posting link to website specialising in weight-loss supplements on Twitter

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is the latest celeb to be slated for their choice of tweets after he posted ‘Had an amazing @BooteaUK smoothie from Bootea.com this morning #booteashake’.

Clearly Louis has been given a tasty free smoothie in return for tweeting about the brand. Now, Bootea is apparently ‘known’ for its variety of appetite suppressing products (nope, we’d never heard of it either), hence the reason behind the Twitter rage.

We’re no way endorsing their products, and certainly do not agree with buying appetite suppressants online, but just because a celebrity tweets about something doesn’t mean that you have to buy it.


I know this is totally radical, and I know that young teens are super impressionable, but I don’t think celebs can restrict all their tweets for the rest of time, just because someone might be influencing young people who would just go off and be influenced by someone else anyway.


2.  Thank you for helping us find Ella: Parents’ relief as shopper spots missing girl after seeing her face in the Mail

This story tells of the wonderful news that a teenage girl, who went missing during treatment for depression, has been found.

However, the Daily Mail are, essentially, trying to claim credit for finding her again, as the person that spotted the missing teen did so after seeing her face on the front page of the paper.

Not only do they credit the frontpage of the Daily Mail as the reason for finding her, they also felt the need to add in, ‘The story was also prominently displayed on the MailOnline website’. Hardly an integral part to the story.


3. Furious mother reports teacher to police for ‘criminal damage’ after she cut banned coloured tags off 13-year-old daughters shoes

A mother is claiming her daughter was a victim of both criminal damage and assault after a teacher cut the coloured labels off her shoes. Seriously.

13-year-old Olivia Adams was told that the green and red tags on her Kickers broke an ‘all black’ uniform policy, and so a teacher cut them off.


We didn’t even know they still made Kickers anymore, having not seen a pair since 2002, but that’s by the by.

The fact that green and red tags are enough to break an all-black uniform policy is ridiculous enough, but a mother has managed to take it to a new level, which makes it seem as though cutting off the tags was a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

Maybe spend less time being furious and more time abiding by the school’s uniform policy, then we won’t have a problem.


4. ‘I don’t read or write’: Courtney Stodden reveals why she won’t pen tell-all book and claims she’s a ‘true feminist’ on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show

Professional idiot Courtney Stodden has denied rumours that she might have a book coming out by claiming she doesn’t read or write.

‘I don’t read or write’?! Really? It’s truly excellent that the Daily Mail will shame idiots in articles if they’re not famous, but when they’re a celeb they’re will to put it up on the site like it’s something that’s totally normal.


5. ‘She’s Mother Nature with a gob attached’: Katie Hopkins slams Peaches Geldof in furious newspaper rant days after losing heated TV debate

Quelle surprise, Katie Hopkins has waded in with another opinion that no one gives a shit about.

After going head to head with Peaches Geldof on This Morning in a live date (which Peaches ended up winning), Katie Hopkins obviously can’t handle losing. She has used her weekly newspaper in THE SUN (ironic, seeing as she doesn’t want her kids to hang out with ‘chavvy’ children) to slag off Peaches and her views on parenting.


It just seems like the media rolls out Katie Hopkins on her soapbox every time someone needs a controversial opinion that they’re too scared to talk about themselves.

It’s getting a bit boring now.
