A high schooler whose poor posture and sullen look turned her into a viral meme overnight is now a fully grown woman.
Social media was still in its infancy when a student took a cell phone photo of Nabria Jackson and uploaded it to the Internet 8 years ago. Jackson's poor posture and grumpy facial expression made the meme a classic.
Jackson became an overnight sensation as the subject of one of the first viral social media memes.
Jackson celebrated the enduring popularity of her meme in a Twitter post on Tuesday. "my meme is officially 8 years old," she tweeted, along with a slew of crying laughing emojis.
50 Cent trolled his friend, President Donald Trump in an Instagram post on Friday. The rapper-turned TV executive laughed at the possibility of the president going to prison if he loses the election to Joe Biden.
"Man they gonna do Trump dirty, he going to jail. you ever heard a president say stop counting the f**king votes," he wrote in the caption of a mockup of Trump wearing a prison-issued orange shirt.
"If the election keeps going in this direction, Trump is gonna need @isaacwrightjr to fight his case. LOL,", he said, referring to the ex-con who started practicing law while in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
Cent flipped on Trump after first endorsing the president for re-election last month.
TV personality Chelsea Handler caught flack for telling talk show host Jimmy Fallon she had to remind 50 Cent he was a Black man.
In the 1970s, the Justice Department set legal precedence that a sitting president cannot be indicted for crimes he allegedly committed while in office.
50 Cent's ex Chelsea Handler says the hip-hop mogul will "absolutely" vote for Joe Biden after Fiddy threw his support behind President Donald Trump last week.
"I DM'd him and said, 'Please give me a call, I don't wanna do this publicly,'" she told NYC radio show Breakfast Club on Thursday.
Handler apologized for telling Jimmy Fallon she had to remind 50 Cent he was a Black man.
"He called me and I just asked him if he was serious." Handler said. "I [was] not telling him, as a white woman, because I misspoke earlier when I said, 'I had to remind him he was Black.' I don't have any business saying anything like that, so I need to apologize to everyone for saying that, because that's inappropriate."
Handler said she asked how 50 could possibly support this "white supremacist" for President. "Whether you're Black or white, it should be a problem for you," she added. "I asked him, and he was like, 'No, I was just screwing around... The taxes are a pain in the ass.' Yeah, but Republicans have told us all how to avoid taxes, so if that's our goal we can figure out a state to live in where we don't have to pay our taxes."
Handler said 50 told her he "absolutely" would be voting for Biden.
Trump supporters on TheDonald.win expressed their disappointment by depicting the rapper as a runway slave being whipped by his master (Handler).

Baseball Hall of Famer Curt Shilling deleted his Twitter on Wednesday after comparing NASCAR driver Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. to disgraced actor Jussie Smollett.
A crew member found what he said was a noose hanging in the garage at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.
The "noose" was actually a garage door pull cord. Similar pull cords were hanging at every door in the Talladega garage.
NASCAR officials announced the finding of the "noose" to the public and called in the FBI, who sent 15 agents to Alabama to investigate the pull cord.
The FBI concluded there was no hate crime. The pull cord was in place in the garage since October 2019.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the former Boston Red Sox pitcher compared Wallace, 26, to 38-year-old Smollett, who was indicted in 2019 for staging a hate crime attack on himself.
"So we have @JussieSmollett v 2.0? Where is the media recanting their idiocy? Shilling tweeted. "It was all a lie."
This isn't the first time Shilling made a controversial statement on social media. He was fired by ESPN in 2016 for sharing an anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page.
Wallace thanked NASCAR and his team on Wednesday afternoon.
"It's been an emotional few days. First off, I want to say how relieved I am that the investigation revealed that this wasn't what we feared it was. I want to thank my team, NASCAR and the FBI for acting swiftly and treating this as a real threat. I think we'll gladly take a little embarrassment over what the alternatives could have been. Make no mistake, though some will try, this should not distract from the show of unity we had on Monday, and the progress we've made as a sport to be a more welcoming environment for all."

50 Cent promised to be a kinder, gentler social media troll after the tragic death of NBA star Kobe Bryant in a helicopter accident last month.
But the rapper-turned-TV executive, real name Curtis Jackson, went back on his word when he trolled Dwyane Wade's 12-year-old son, Zaya Wade, on Instagram.
Wade recently announced his son, Zion, now goes by the name Zaya and uses the feminine pronouns she/her.
On Monday, the 44-year-old rap mogul posted a meme on his Instagram page that shows Wade, 38, sitting next to incarcerated singer R. Kelly, 53, at a fashion show.
A bubble above Kelly's head reads: "I heard you had a daughter now." Wade responds "U touch her I'll kill ya."
Fiddy captioned the meme: "LOL NOW THIS SOME FUNNY SH*T."
Kelly is currently in jail awaiting trial on charges of raping minors in Chicago and other cities. The charges date back to the 1990s.
Wade's wife, actress Gabrielle Union, 47, is fully supportive of her stepson, Zaya's mental illness.
