Let’s break down 15 terrible excuses from accused sexual harassers and predators.
The world is currently being treated to a slow-rolling reveal of the alleged bad behavior of some of its most powerful men. And inevitably, with bad behavior comes excuses.

Leave it to Starbucks to subtly troll Trumpism in its new holiday ads.
A new holiday ad by Starbucks features an interracial couple, a Muslim man wearing a taqiyah, and same-sex partners. In other words, it's hard to read it as anything other than a fierce, festive rebuke to Trumpism. Starbucks wants to make money, to be sure, and profits are certainly part of every decision it makes. But sometimes what's good for humanity is also good for business. "We will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions
