People On Twitter Are Demolishing Columbus Day, And It's Hilarious

The only holiday in the United States (and various countries in Latin America) that causes such uproar is known as none other than Columbus Day. 

You know, the day that celebrates the official landing  of Christopher Columbus and the discovery of the Americas in 1492. Some states celebrate the day as a federal holiday while other don't celebrate the day at all. 

There is so much controversy surrounding Columbus day that it has even been changed to "Native American Day" or "Indigenous Peoples' Day" in a number of States, to commemorate the land and it's inhabitants before Columbus "discovered it." 


Without further ado, let's take it to twitter...

Lebron fans are not going to like this one. 


Let's collectively blame it on gentrification. In fact, we could possibly blame more than half of the things wrong with the world on gentrification of some sort...and entitlement. 


I did mention these tweets were funny for the most part. Here is where I mention that some are also a little difficult to digest but thought-provoking, nonetheless. 




Well then, thanks Jesse for that wonderful mental imagery. 

Oh, oh another parody Trump account. 

Yeaaa, I liked the other one better.


Here's our all time favourite site for rap lyrics with well...rap lyrics 


I'm sure those are sarcastic laugh faces, a visual expression of "laughing at the irony." Reading emojis is truly an art form. 

This man is an honest man. One who owns up to his flaws. As for the rest of y'all, why don't you ask for directions?

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, or so the saying goes.

The same can be said for your interactions with cops, most of whom are perfectly happy to let minor infractions slide––When was the last time you were actually ticketed for jaywalking?––provided you're not a total Karen should you interact them.

Your local police officer likely doesn't care about jaywalking or the fact that you went five miles over the speed limit unless you give him a reason to, as we learned when Redditor Takdel asked police officers: "What stupid law have you enforced just because someone was an a-hole?"
