A recently published Bloomingdale's holiday advertisement has gone viral on social media, with people calling out the company for encouraging date rape.

The ad shows a woman laughing with her head turned away as a man stares at her. In between the man and woman there is text that reads: “Spike your best friend’s eggnog when they’re not looking.”

People have posted the ad to Facebook and Twitter, with many writing negatives comments on how it is “inappropriate,” “creepy,” and is in “poor taste,” The Wall Street Journal reports. The ad has received more than 3,000 comments on social media. 

The company has since issued a statement that reads, “In reflection of recent feedback, the copy we used in our current catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdale’s sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment.”

In an effort to cater to requests of marshmallow-crazed fans, General Mills launched the sweepstakes Wednesday and the contest will run until Sunday, Oct. 18.

To win a box of Marshmallow Only Lucky Charms, contestants must snap a photo of themselves holding an imaginary box of Lucky Charms and post the picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #Lucky10Sweepstakes.

To help inspire creativity, the “unicorn of the cereal world” has teamed up with rapper Biz Markie.

In a remastered version of "Just a Friend," Markie sings this hook:

"Oh baby you want marshmallow only, but you see there's only ten, with the hashtag lucky 10, just strike a pose, and send us your selfie, with an imaginary box, and you could win a box."

The Atlanta Hawks unveiled a new marketing campaign Friday – taken straight from the headlines – in a promotion for ticket sales. Here is the link to one video.

The team signed three real-life people named Ashley Madison, two females and one male, to promote the team’s 10-game flex plans which went on sale Friday. All three of them are Georgia residents.

The Hawks are encouraging that fans “start a new love affair with the team.” In the first video released, one real-life Ashley Madison says “Don’t worry, your old team doesn’t have to know.”

The team started a dedicated phone line to the ticket package of 1-800-HAWK-LUV. Fans can also go to the team’s website.

Ashley Madison is the controversial online dating website marketed to those who are married or in a relationship.

RightNow: What it is, how you can use it

See how it works below: What is RightNow?

What would your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts look like if they were streamed, in real time, alongside everyone else’s?

It would look like RightNow, a website that you – through your Facebook posts, tweets and Instagram photos – help create:

  • Real time thoughts: The discussions and photos are in real time, centered on a specific topic or story
  • Bigger conversation: Your voice becomes part of the larger conversation in one place, in real time
  • See big picture: Make your voice heard among Dayton Daily News and WHIO reporters, local and national experts and community members


How does it work?
  • Top of page: There’s an image and headline about the topic of discussion. The headline links to a story, photo gallery or collection of stories about a certain topic from DDN so you’re getting news from sources you can trust.
  • Featured content: Here you’ll see three boxes featuring compelling content, important updates on the subject and any relevant hashtags
  • Three columns: that is the meat and potatoes of the page: three columns of information – one for news, one for experts and one for reactions from the public (that’s you!). That’s where the conversation takes place.


How can you view it?

The RightNow layout looks a little different, depending on what device you’re using to view it:

  • Computer/tablet: You’ll see “News,” “Experts” and “Reactions” alongside one another. 
  • Smartphone: The page will show one column by default, but you can easily switch to a different content area by touching the menu bar.

And of course there’s sharing. It wouldn’t be a live conversation without the ability to share or reply. Whether you post to Facebook or Instagram, tweet, retweet, favorite or simply send an email, you can do it all from the comfort of RightNow.

RightNow is happening NOW. Join the conversation.
