By now you've heard about the hedge fund-busting antics on Robinhood and Reddit.com where teenagers became millionaires overnight by investing in GameStop stocks.

The stock price is being fueled by hedge funds desperately covering their short positions in GameStop, the video game retailer.

Hedge funds were short-selling GameStop -- or betting that the company would fail. The lower the stock price fell, the more money the hedge funds made.

But they didn't bet that a group of scrappy day traders on Reddit would rally to save GameStop from certain failure.

When Redditors began purchasing GameStop stocks on Jan. 19, the stock was selling at less than $30 a share. Just one week later the stock price hit a whopping $336 a share -- and the price is going higher.

The catalyst for GameStop to explode higher came on Friday, Jan. 22, when Citron Research announced it would not comment on GameStop any longer due to the actions of "an angry mob" -- the "angry mob" being amateur day traders on Reddit and RobinHood.

Some teenagers who purchased GameStop stock options on the Robinhood stock trading app on Jan. 19 are millionaires today. Others are crying tears of joy because they earned enough money to pay for surgery or to buy a new car.

CNN laughably referred to the "angry mob" on Reddit.com as "Trump supporters."

In an unprecedented move to protect hedge funds on Wednesday, stock broker TD Ameritrade halted trading on GameStop.

Bosses at high end retailer Barneys released a statement apologizing to rapper Jay Z following media reports of racial profiling incidents involving black consumers at the New York location.

2 young black shoppers filed separate complaints accusing Barneys of racially profiling them after they made purchases of a $2,500 Celine handbag and a $350 Ferragamo belt.

But instead of apologizing to the shoppers who were racially profiled, Barneys apologized to Jay Z for inconveniencing him.

"We deeply regret that these recent events have distracted from the great work of the Shawn Carter Foundation, and we offer our sincere apologies to Mister Carter," said Barneys CEO Mark Lee.

And you scoffed when I said Jay Z was behaving like HE was the victim?
