Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.

Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.

He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"

For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.

Word of advice, Taylor. Next time—just don't.

Seems Legit of the Day: Oregon Couple Gets a $2 Million Cell Phone Bill from Verizon

Ken Slusher and his girlfriend just wanted to get a cell phone. Is that so hard?

It is if you're trying to get one from Verizon.

The Oregon couple opened a plan last year with two phones, then quickly realized their mistake and canceled. Only to have the mistakes follow them.

Channel 3000 tells it like this:

Slusher called an automated phone line to check his Verizon account balance. A voice recording said, "Your total amount due is $2,156,593.64." Slusher and his girlfriend opened a Verizon account last November and they bought two phones. They only kept the service for one month after noticing major discrepancies on their bills. Slusher said their first bill should've been for about $120.

Instead, it was for $698, plus it showed a previous balance of $451. He said their next statement asked for just $9.

"The number of errors and the comedy of which they happened is astounding to me," he said.

Slusher said they canceled the service in December and returned the phones to a local Verizon store in January.

They thought everything was all cleared up until they started getting notices from several collection agencies demanding upward of $2,000.

Slusher and his girlfriend say they've been going back and forth for months with customer service representatives who agree there's been a mistake. However, with no resolution, Slusher checked his Verizon account balance again on Monday and that's when he heard the $2 million figure.

The Oregonian ran a statement from Verizon:

"We have apologized to an Oregon customer for a programming error in an automated voice response system that caused him to receive an incorrect message that he owed $2 million on his bill," Verizon said in a written statement Wednesday. "We are correcting the error now and have resolved the issue to the customer's satisfaction."

Get it together, Verizon.

"It's Moby d*ck!"

Michael Bergin had himself an aquatic adventure the likes of which the rest of us can only dream of having.

Well, at least he acted like it. The very excitable Bostonian (actually his Facebook profile says he's from Malden, MA, which is just outside Boston) landed the fish of his dreams and goes fckin' insane during the whole fckin' adventure.

This glorious man guesses that it's everything from a baby whale to a tuna.

We're almost positive it's an ocean sunfish, which do indeed swim in the Atlantic. A few of the Facebook commenters agreed with us.

Finally of the Day: Facebook Might Be Developing a 'Dislike' Button for All You Haters Out There

Facebook is preparing a dislike button

You know you hate just about most of the things that you see on Facebook. The baby pictures, the couples in gooey love, the political nonsense, the insanely inaccurate information, the list goes on forever and grows every day.

Well, rejoice, you cynical a**holes.

Mark Zuckerberg confirmed during a Facebook headquarters Q&A Sept. 15.

According to Re/code:

"I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we're working on it and shipping it," Zuckerberg said.

He told the audience that the company realized people want to express emotions other than positivity, especially around posts about sensitive subjects like the Syrian refugee crisis.

He didn't give further information as to what the "Dislike" button might look like. We could look to the new "reactions" product from workplace chatting app Slack as a possibility. Slack's reactions allow people to comment with a full range of emojis on others' posts, which leads to everything from check marks to laughter and food images to animated hands clapping.

We won't put all of our eggs in this thumbs down basket just yet. This is in direct opposition to what Zuckerberg said just nine months ago when he said there were no plans to introduce such a thing.

But if you'd like to take today's news as the truth, then strap on your dancin' hooves and get hatin'.
