Josh Groban Makes Fun of Mariah Carey, Then Deletes Tweet
After botching her New Year's Eve performance Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, Mariah Carey was the butt of many jokes. But some critics couldn't handle the heat from Carey's extremely dedicated fan base.
Singer Josh Groban tweeted "Any time one of the greatest voices of my generation lip syncs an angel loses its wings." After receiving a slew of hate from fans, Groban deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
"Deleted my tweets about a certain performer because it was made in humor but taken way more meanly than intended," he wrote. "Not out to diss artists."
Carey didn't let the haters get to her, though. After the performance she tweeted "Sh*t happens."

Hannity Retweets Joke Account Asking to 'Make Russia Great Again'
Political pundit Sean Hannity got himself into some hot water after he retweeted a comment by a joke account that suggested Donald Trump "MAKE RUSSIA GREAT AGAIN."
Hannity's thoughts? "Amen!!" He tweeted.
What Hannity didn't realize is the account - owned by a "Donnie L'il Hands" is a parody Donald Trump account that was actually making fun of Hannity. Many lambasted Hannity for being pro-Russia and also for being dense enough to not recognize a parody account. In a later Tweet storm, Hannity said it was an honest mistake and that he misread the tweet to say "make America great again."

Washington Post Puts 'Male' Symbol on Cover Depicting Women's March
The Express, a free weekly tabloid produced by the Washington Post - excitedly tweeted out its upcoming cover for its January 5, 2017 edition. The lead story: The Women's March on Washington. Except the cover art, meant to depict one of the largest marches in modern history organized by women, accidentally used the symbol for male instead of female.
Critics were quick to point out the blunder. One woman asked "do you have any women on your edit team," questioning as to how, exactly, such a huge mistake even made it to print.
The Express quickly deleted it and issued a new tweet with the proper symbol and an ironically misspelled word.
"We made a mistake on our cover this morning and we're embarrassed," they wrote. "We errnoeously [sic] used a male symbol instead of a female symbol."
