Perez Hilton – Conservative News Host's HILARIOUSLY Unrealistic Marijuana Story Busted By Twitter

Greg Kelly is getting smoked out by Twitter over his wacky weed claims!

The Newsmax anchor perplexed social media on Wednesday after warning followers not to smoke cannabis by sharing a personal story that’s quite impossible to believe. In an apparent response to Hunter Biden’s new memoir and the legalization of cannabis in New York, he shared:

“SMOKING WEED (aka GRASS) is NOT a good idea. I’ve tried it (back in the day) and it was WORSE than anything that happened to HUNTER BIDEN. I ‘toked up’ with some buddies in Kentucky and woke up 4 days later in Nairobi, Kenya. With no idea what happened. DON’T DO DRUGS.”

Um. We’re sorry… but WHAT?

First off, there’s no documented case of anyone smoking weed (aka grass) and blacking out for several days. Of course, harder drugs like narcotics are known to cause blackouts that can last several hours — especially if paired with other drugs like alcohol. But, no, weed alone doesn’t cause a multi-day blackout.

Critics were also bewildered by the claim that Kelly was able to travel internationally during this experience; meaning, he somehow managed to round up his passport, ID, and money — then make his way through airport security and traverse a foreign country all while allegedly blacked out on the reefer.

For their part, Twitter users weren’t so much scared straight by Kelly’s probably false tale as they were laughing their heads off. Commenters wrote:

“My cousin did 5 Marijuanas and now he’s a dog”

“This happens every time I smoke smh the money I spend to get flights to Kenya is crazy”

“Somebody has to name a strain ‘Nairobi Express’ in honor of this real tweet from a dude who a fascist cult considers a real source of news.”

“Whoever woke this boob up ten minutes after he passed out on the floor and told him it was four days later and he was in Kenya deserves a medal”

LOLz!

Even politicians chimed in. Ex-California congresswoman Katie Hill quipped:

“Cheers to all who have “toked up” in Kentucky and ended up in Kenya because that’s definitely a thing that happens when you smoke weed.”

Meanwhile, others pointed out that if the story is true, Greg must have accidentally “toked” something stronger than marijuana.

What do U think about Kelly’s crazy claims? Sound off in the comments (below).

Perez Hilton – Woman Sues Money Guru Dave Ramsey After Being Fired For Having Pre-Marital S*x!

Well this is something else…

A woman is suing money guru and nationwide financial advice-giver Dave Ramsey after she got fired from his company, Ramsey Solutions, for… being pregnant??

According to media reports, the woman, identified as Caitlin O’Connor, previously worked as an administrative assistant four years ago for the financial outfit. During that time, she became pregnant “with her long-term partner,” per the reports, and naturally, she asked her bosses for the paperwork so she could take maternity leave.

But according to her lawsuit, she wasn’t granted leave — she was straight-up fired!

WTF?!

Lawyers for the company aren’t denying it, either. In fact, they are citing company policy — Ramsey himself is an evangelical Christian — that states employees may not have s*x outside of marriage! Citing their own documents, the lawyers confirmed that since O’Connor was unmarried at the time of her pregnancy, she’d violated one of the company’s 14 core values for “righteous living,” and therefore deserved to be fired.

In fact, per The Tennessean, the company lawyers doubled down on that policy, claiming they’ve actually fired “at least twelve other employees” for violating that same core value! And since Tennessee is an at-will employee state — that is, workers can be fired for any reason — company lawyers claim the lawsuit is unjustified since it is “neither discriminatory nor retaliatory.”

O’Connor’s lawyers may have found a loophole, though. According to the local news coverage of the lawsuit, her legal team pointed out that Ramsey’s company doesn’t explicitly list pre-marital s*x as being against the rules in its company handbook. Furthermore, the handbook is vague about exactly what constitutes “righteous living.” And when pressed to be more specific, Ramsey’s legal team called the request “vague and irrelevant.” Uhhh, what?!

In the legal complaint, the woman’s lawyers are contending that O’Connor herself is a Christian, but not one who believes her religion ought to be “punitive, hateful, vengeful, or judgmental.” Thus they are crying foul on Ramsey’s policies, and claiming in court docs (below):

“[O’Connor’s] view of Christianity does not require her to invade or inquire or know the specifics of what other people do or do not do in their bedroom or when they do it, much less pass morality judgement on other people.”

Amen! Literally…

In response, according to NBC News, the financial guru’s team filed a motion arguing to dismiss the lawsuit. In it, they pointed to an email O’Connor herself sent to the company’s human resources department while still employed in which she acknowledged that “being unmarried and expecting is frowned upon here.”

That, company lawyers claim, is “nothing more than an acknowledgement of Defendant’s premarital sex ban and admission that she violated it.” Ooookay… What do U make of Ramsey’s stance on pre-marital s*x, Perezcious readers?? Should this be something companies fire employees over?!
