The day the mob came for John Wayne 

It’s the day that no one thought was coming. On February 19th, 2019, the mob came for John Wayne. I know what you’re thinking: but Barrett, my trusty old internet pal, that’s impossible. John Wayne was born in 1907 and has been dead for 40 years!

It doesn’t matter, dear reader. With social justice, anything is possible. You see, a 1971 Playboy interview resurfaced and some woke-ass tweeter was shocked to discover the insensitivity that The Duke showed to people of colour and women. Of course when a social justice maniac discovers something offensive, Twitter simply must explode with outrage and memes. It’s the law. In this particular instance, it was genuinely difficult to determine who was serious and who was taking the piss.
