The month of March sucked so hard for Justin Bieber, he's decided to take April into his own hands. First victim: TMZ.
This morning, Justin tweeted, "“As promised taking all fan phone calls TODAY at (888) 847 9869. Talk to u soon!” Now, any calendar aficionado will recognize today's date, April 1st, as April Fools Day, and might come to the conclusion that this 888 number will not, in fact, lead you to Justin's iPhone. Still, with a little coaxing from the Biebs...
Did everyone call me yet?

...the Beliebers had to give it a shot. To the dismay of Justin's 37 million followers, the voice on the receiving end was not Justin's, but the TMZ tip line operator. This may prove to be a pretty expensive prank—the tip line is toll-free, meaning TMZ picks up the tab.
Did you have a part in ruining Justin's March? You might be his next victim...
Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
