out against NFL players who knelt during the anthem while speaking at a rally in Alabama. He proceeded to ask the crowd, “wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag to say, ‘get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out, He’s fired. He’s fired!'” Trumped doubled down on his comments in a series of tweets lighting up the Internet, where both NFL fans and professional athletes alike sounded off on why they would or wouldn’t be supporting the players who “took a knee”.

When Nine News presenter Amber Sherlock berated colleague Julie Snook for not complying with outfit requests, she didn’t expect the off-air footage to be leaked and be watched millions and millions of times.
“I need Julie to put a jacket on because we’re all in white,” she began. Oh, and it BEGUN.
1. The BBC interview feat. kids who just want some airtime.
This has to be my all time fav of 2017. Before his BBC interview, Professor Robert Kelly was an unknown face. Then, he appeared on BBC, and suddenly, his face was EVERYWHERE, when his two children crashed his interview live on television.
