This behavior is not okay

A hopeful single meant to compete on the forthcoming season of The Bachelorette has been revealed to have sent aggressive direct messages over the course of two years to one woman, despite not getting a response from her, which have since gone viral on Twitter. Matt Dionne has reportedly no chance at winning Hannah B's heart now that his former love interest Sam Smithburger and bad-DM aggregator SheRatesDogs let the entire world know just how creepy he is.

After Smithburger shared her screengrabs late Friday evening, which showed Dionne endlessly messaging and calling her "rude AF" despite never receiving any reply, SheRatesDogs shared them with its followers. Since then, Smithburger's original tweet has taken off—and may have successfully gotten Dionne removed from the show prior to it filming.

Former contestant Ashley Spivey was tagged and promised to alert the producers of Dionne's "disgusting" behavior, which may have also contributed to him getting kicked off.

Since then, more women have shared stories (with photo proof) of their bad experiences with Dionne—which allegedly included him buying a dog to "keep" one woman "around" and getting a fake ID for a 19-year-old woman so he could "lie to his friends" about her age—so it's not looking good for his television prospects.

ABC has yet to publicly comment on the matter.

Lights off

"Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
