The Internet Is Collectively Repulsed By This Candy Corn Pizza Creation

Candy corn on its own is already a questionable Halloween treat but one Twitter user took it to the next level and put it on something we all truly love: pizza.

The tweeter, who goes by the name @TheRealAsswolf, posted a before and after shot of his candy corn pizza last week, captioning the shot “Tis the season my dudes.” The frozen DiGiorno Pizza features a couple handfuls of the yellow, white and orange candy on top, while the “after” shot shows the pizza cooked with the candy melted on top.

The sight of this, of course, caused Twitter to explode.

“Blocked and reported,” one user wrote, while another commented that it is still better than the pineapple pizza debate that has been going on for years.

Then DiGiorno Pizza decided to voice their own thoughts on the tragedy that just struck their perfectly good frozen pizza. “Tis the no,” they responded.

The Twitter user and pizza creator responded that they could use his recipe for free, which DiGiorno politely declined.

Candy corn lover or not, we advise you to never try this one at home with a perfectly good pie.

Meet Laura Dern’s Doppelgänger and More Incredible Celeb Lookalikes

Maybe The Lizzie McGuire Movie plot wasn’t so far-fetched after all.

These everyday people are nearly identical to some very famous faces, and are proving that looking like a celebrity might just be the next best thing to actually being one.

Laura Dern and Maria Wojciechowski
The stand-up comedian has an Instagram account dedicated to her resemblance to the Emmy-winning actress.

“Honestly, I didn’t know who Laura Dern was until people started telling me I looked like her,” Wojciechowski confessed to EW last year. “Jurassic Park played a lot on TV, so friends were constantly texting me about it. One night I got such a text, and I happened to be wearing a khaki shirt , so my roommate suggested I do a side-by-side and post it on Facebook. I did, and it got an ‘I’m having a baby!’ amount of likes, so I decided to keep doing it.”

Since then, Wojciechowski has garnered more than 12,000 followers.

While the results are hilarious, Wojciechowski’s gig isn’t without its challenges. “Her facial expressions are so wonderful but can be so hard to mimic,” she explained of the actress. “My skin is not as rubbery as hers. Like, no one’s is.”

Selena Gomez and Sofia Solares

The 22-year-old Mexican’s Instagram comments are flooded with comparisons to the “Fetish” singer.

“I love Selena Gomez and I declare myself a fan of her and of course it would be a dream to know that she knows of my existence and will devote a few seconds to write me something!” Solares told E! News about the possibility of Gomez responding to the frenzy. “I would cry with happiness.”

“I always try to be myself. I say it’s okay to look like her, but I do not want to lose myself for trying to be someone I’m not,” she added.

Jennifer Lopez and Janice Garay

The 28-year-old Texan bodybuilder has earned a storm of social media attention for her resemblance to J.Lo. “So what you guys are telling me is that everybody has a twin and @jlo happens to be mine??? I’ll take it,” Garay, who goes by “Jay From Houston” on Instagram, captioned one photo.

Garay never made the Lopez connection before all of the online observations. “It never really crossed my mind…. the whole world says I look like J.Lo,” she told KHOU.

Gigi Hadid and Iza IJzerman

Dutch model Iza IJzerman shares dewy, enchanting features with one of the most famous faces in her business.

“The first time someone mentioned was on Instagram,” IJzerman told Refinery29. “When I signed with MiLK, they posted a picture with the caption ‘The new curvy Gigi Hadid,’ so that’s the moment I realized it might be true!”

Despite the Internet’s Gigi-centric reaction to IJzerman, the Netherlands-based beauty sees more of herself in a different member of the Hadid crew. “I think I look more like Bella,” she said.

Ryan Gosling and Johannes Laschet

The internet burst out in declarations of joy when it discovered Laschet, a menswear blogger and law student who reminds everyone of their dream boyfriend.

Although one might expect looking like Gosling to be a dream come true, Laschet told Time that the comparisons get “a little exhausting and sometimes it’s just too much.”

The fashion connoisseur also appreciates that his famous counterpart knows his way around a closet: “Mr. Gosling knows how to dress well and you can learn something from him. Especially when he wears a smoking suit.”

Taylor Swift and April Gloria

There are many Swift lookalikes out and about in the world, but this cosplayer from Kansas is probably the most dead-on of them all.

Gloria seems to fully embrace her resemblance to the singer, and shares both her love of cats and her expert ability to rock bold lip colors.

Angelina Jolie and Chelsea Marr

The lucky Scottish beauty could easily be the actress’s long-lost little sister.

After her resemblance to Jolie caused internet buzz in 2015, Marr responded to commenters who wondered whether she had gotten plastic surgery to look like the star.

“Anyone who knows me knows I am extremely open and really don’t mind discussing it. I have had lip fillers yes, not to look like anyone else but just because I wanted them a bit fuller just like all the other women that have also had theirs done,” she wrote in a Facebook post, adding that she also had surgery on her nose to fix problems related to a childhood accident and had a breast augmentation.

While the similarities seem obvious to us, on Facebook Marr said, “I don’t really see the resemblance myself to be honest.”

Emma Watson and Meghan Flockhart

The Glasgow, U.K., cosplayer could easily be mistaken for Hogwarts’ smartest student.

Flockhart seized the opportunity to dress up as Watson’s famous Harry Potter character on multiple occasions, and recently channeled her new Beauty and the Beast role.

“As much as I’d love to believe I am her doppelganger, as she’s gorgeous and an idol of mine, I am myself at the end of the day. But I have similar traits to my idol and that’s awesome,” Flockhart told the Mirror in 2016.

Katy Perry and Francesca Brown

The actress and Perry impersonator can fool even the most zealous of fans.

“I would just get mistaken everywhere,” the Brit told Elle.com about when the pop star first shot to fame. “I’d have people running after me; I went shopping, and I had children running after me. I went to a music festival here in London, and there were cameras and crowds of people turned up wanting their picture . Everyone would think I was her!”

Brown says that at first her resemblance to Perry caused issues in her acting career, but she’s since decided to accept lookalike jobs to pay the bills and continues to pursue other acting gigs. “I was working quite a lot as an actress. I was going up for auditions, and I kept getting the comparison to Katy Perry. For some reason — I don’t know why — it was costing me jobs.”

“Although made the acting harder for me, it hasn’t stopped me. I do believe in myself as an actress and I know I have what it takes. I mean there’s Zooey Deschanel as well, and they get mistaken, and I think that people can take both of them. So there can be Zooey Deschanel, Katy Perry, and me,” she told Elle.com.

Ed Sheeran and Ty Jones

Jones, who calls himself “Ed’s evil twin” in his Instagram bio, is constantly mistaken for the famous musician. “When Ed became really famous I had people always coming up to me and talking to me and wanting my picture — it was crazy,” he told the Mirror. “He’s such a big artist and I’m a massive fan of his but now it’s like I can’t escape it, people go mad when they think they’re meeting Ed Sheeran.”

“I’ve had a few photos of me go viral because people thought they were Ed Sheeran which is mad because I don’t expect it and my friends and family tag me in these pictures all the time,” he added.

Jones actually got the chance to meet his dead-ringer, and told the Mirror that Sheeran was in disbelief over their similarities.

Ariana Grande and Jacky Vasquez

Vasquez frequently rocks a high ponytail on Instagram to accentuate her resemblance to the Dangerous Woman, and even poked fun at Grande’s doughnut licking incident.

“I have been mistaken as Ariana a couple times. I remember I got mistaken in Washington D.C. because she was at the Verizon Center that day and I dressed up like her since she was in town. People asked me to take pictures with them that day, it was so fun!” she told Sweetly High.

Princess Kate and Heidi Agan

Agan quit her job as a waitress to become a full-time royal lookalike once Princess Kate joined the most famous family in England.

“She’s a gorgeous, gorgeous lady and she carries herself extremely well, so for somebody to say that you look like her is just incredible,” she told Katie Couric in an interview.

Agan has teamed up with other lookalikes for (fake) royal family photos.

Kim Kardashian West and Kamilla Osman

Osman’s uncanny resemblance to the selfie queen has earned her lots of attention on Instagram.

Kardashian West actually met her lookalike in 2016 and, of course, shared a photo of the big moment.

“I’m embracing the fact that people think we look alike and I appreciate it because I think she’s beautiful. But I want to be me,” Osman told ET.

The good-natured beauty even seems to share Kardashian West’s ability to brush off the haters. “They called me a Walmart version of Kim Kardashian. That was so funny!!” she shared with ET. “I actually commented back and was like, ‘That’s a brilliant comment.’ So yes guys, I’m a Walmart version of Kim Kardashian.”

Venezuela Added to President Donald Trump’s New Travel Bans

On Sunday, President Donald Trump announced new travel bans on visitors entering the United States.

The new restrictions, going into effect on October 18th, adds North Korea, Chad and Venezuela to the list of targeted countries that already included Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia. For Venezuela, the restrictions apply only to government officials and their families. “Venezuela’s government fails to share public-safety and terrorism-related information adequately,” the government proclamation reads.

“I must act to protect the security and interests of the United States and its people,” he said in the document, issued late on Sunday,” Trump wrote in the decree, later tweeting, “Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet.”

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry responded to the travel ban on Monday: “It is worth pointing out that these types of lists are incompatible with international law, and constitute a form of psychological and political terrorism,” the statement reads. “Our people are being sanctioned because of their pacifist nature as well as their tolerance and respect for different religions and beliefs.”

Along with questioning the legal aspects of the travel restrictions, the South American country also felt the measure was an effort to “stigmatize our nation under the pretext of fighting terrorism.”

Restrictions will not apply to those that already possess a valid U.S. visa the White House affirmed in its proclamation.

Mass. Father Kills 6-Year-Old Son and Then Himself — Which Boy’s Mom Feared in 2013 Restraining Order

The mother of a 6-year-old boy who was fatally shot by his father in what Massachusetts police say was a murder-suicide said years before that she feared for his life, according to court documents obtained by multiple outlets.

In 2013, Anthony Scaccia’s mother wrote in an application for a restraining order against William Scaccia Jr., 49, that his behavior made her worry he was “thinking of killing Anthony and himself,” according to CBS Boston. 

On Friday, Anthony’s body was discovered at the top of the stairs in his Foxborough home with a fatal gunshot wound. His father’s body was also found in the home with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

Gasoline was found poured throughout the home’s upstairs hallways, with a burn spot indicating that it had been lit but didn’t catch, according to WCVB. It is believed Scaccia unsuccessfully attempted to set the residence on fire before killing himself.

According to a next door neighbor, on Thursday night, the boy’s grandmother frantically knocked on her neighbor’s door and asked for his help.

“The grandmother came over, she was a mess, she was screaming for help,” Richard Shain, a next door neighbor told the Boston Herald.  “She came to the door and explained to me there was just a fire in her house, that the grandson was up in the house, she didn’t know if he was still alive, but to come help get him out of the house because there had just been a fire.”

“I got in there and it reeked like gas, there was gasoline all over the upstairs. When I walked up to the top of the stairs, was lying at the top of the stairs, he was purple. I checked his pulse and I went back downstairs and I called 911,” Shain continued.

A handgun, shell casings and a note believed to have been written by Scaccia were found by investigators, CBS Boston reports.

Speaking to WCVB, Scaccia’s family said he had served in the military for 20 years and suffered from PTSD.

“We were concerned about Billy recently because we knew he was really sad and really depressed. We could not break through that. We could not break through,” his sister, Krissy Scaccia told the outlet. “We could not make his see the good in anything that was around him. We did not foresee him taking his son with him.”

Scaccia and Anthony’s mother had once lived in the home together but were estranged. The Herald reports that he had recently applied for a gun permit but was denied due to his history with police, according to the outlet.

Anthony was a kindergartener at Burrell Elementary School, according to WCVB.

“Our Foxborough Community was shaken this morning by unbearably tragic news,” Spinelli said in a statement obtained by WCVB. “Our hearts go out to this sweet little boy who was just starting his educational journey and to those who loved and cared for him.”

Foxborough and Norfolk authorities did not return PEOPLE’s calls for comments. Scaccia’s family could not be reached Monday.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for memorial and funeral expenses. “While emotions over this horrible incident are totally understandable, we as a community need to come together to help this family in every way we can,” the page creator wrote. “They need our love, compassion, prayers and financial support to deal with what lies ahead.”

Beloved Family Dog Mistaken for Coyote, Shot and Killed in His New Jersey Neighborhood by Hunter

Just days after a therapy dog was shot in Canada after being mistaken for a wolf, a loving family dog in Readington Township, New Jersey, has suffered a similar fate.

Tonka, a 1-year-old Alaskan Shepherd, was fatally shot in the heart by a hunter who thought the large dog was a coyote.

“It’s something I could never imagine happening,” Elizabeth Mongno, Tonka’s owner, told PEOPLE while recalling the tragic accident.

Mongno says she was walking Tonka around the large backyard of her home, which she shares with her husband, 9-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, on Wednesday when the day suddenly took a devastating turn. The pair was just about to head back inside, when the dog spotted several deer nearby and ran after them.

“I went running right behind him and was calling his name,” Mongno said, adding that her shouts attracted the attention of several nearby neighbors including three children who were playing outside the house next door.

Shortly after the chase started, Mongno heard a bang followed by a yelp sound and “knew something was wrong.” Around this time, Mongno’s husband arrived home from work and helped her search for Tonka. After 15 minutes of looking, they found their beloved pet lying in a pool of his own blood, dead from a crossbow shot to the heart, but there was no sign of the shooter.

It wasn’t until later that day, after Mongno called the police to report Tonka’s death, that authorities learned who was responsible.

A spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection told PEOPLE that the licensed hunter, a 40-year-old male from Kenilworth, New Jersey, responsible for Tonka’s death said he mistook the dog for a coyote chasing after deer. It is legal for a hunter to take a coyote while hunting other animals, and bow season for deer began on Sept. 9.

As a result of Tonka’s death the DEP confirmed that the hunter will face charges for careless discharge, damage to property and a deer tagging violation on Nov. 2 at the Readington Township Municipal Court. The hunter could face a seven-year loss of his hunting license and up to $3,000 in fines, plus restitution. 

Mongno has difficulty believing that Tonka, a roughly 95-lb., large-headed dog with distinct white markings could be mistaken for a brown-colored coyote that usually weighs between 34 to 40 lbs.

“If you can’t tell the difference between a giant dog with two collars and a coyote, you shouldn’t be hunting with a crossbow,” she said.

The local school teacher doesn’t have an issue with hunting, her husband is a hunter, but she is against those who wield weapons irresponsibly, especially in an area where children often play.

“It never occurred to me that hunting was going on in my backyard,” Mongno said.

Following the shooting, Mongno found out that a local property owner had given permission to the hunter to hunt on the land abutting Mongno’s home and the homes of several of her neighbors. Even with laws in place to keep hunters 150 feet from all residences, Mongno said she would’ve acted differently if she knew hunting was going on so close to her home.

“I really don’t want this to ever happen again and I know it could’ve been much worse,” she said, noting that 12 children live in her neighborhood, three of whom were outside in the same area as Tonka when he was shot.

She hopes the suffering her family has had to endure encourages those who have permitted hunting on their land to share that choice with their neighbors and that it will lead others to seek out the hunting laws in their own areas. Most importantly, Mongno wishes that no one has to go through the heartache her family has felt over the past few days.

“My husband says ‘He shot our dog in the heart, but he broke all of ours,’ ” Mongno said. Her 9-year-old son has been hit the hardest by the loss. The family considered Tonka “his dog,” and went out of their way to include the Alaskan Shepherd in all of their memories, forgoing vacations that required plane travel so Tonka could join in on the fun.

The silver lining to come out of this heartwrenching death is the community support.

Mongno says since Tonka was a recognized face around town, countless locals have reached out to express their condolences, with Tonka’s former vet even offering a lifetime of free services for their next pet. A hunting group has also reached out to the family with an offer to raise money for their next dog.

But Mongo knows her family still needs time to heal before they welcome another animal into their home.

“My son is so broken, he wouldn’t go back to school. Today was the first day he felt okay enough to go back,” Mongno said “He doesn’t understand why the hunter won’t apologize.”
