WOMAN DEFENDS DIPPING CHICKEN IN SODA
A woman is defending herself after going viral for committing a food crime against chicken tenders. She was caught on camera at the U.S. Open dipping her chicken fingers in soda before taking a bite.
The video quickly spread all over the Internet, with some people on Twitter joking that she should be put in jail. That woman is Alexa Greenfield – and she says she does it with good reason: to cool them off. She says she’s done it since she was a kid – and admits that it's weird, but enjoys the taste. “I do think it is gross and it definitely sounds gross so I totally get where they are coming from,” she admits. “I almost judge the people that are defending me more so.”
And by the way? She also had an inkling of what was coming her way right after it was captured by cameras. “I got a text five minutes later from a friend that said, ‘I just saw you dipping a chicken finger in Coke on TV,’ and I was like, Oh noooo’.”

HOMELESS VET WILL GET FULL $400,000 FROM GOFUND ME CAMPAIGN
Johnny Bobbitt Jr., a homeless Philadelphia ex-Marine, will get the money owed to him from a GoFundMe campaign that raised more than $400,000 for him, according to his attorney Chris Fallon.
Bobbitt has now received $20,000 as part of the guarantee, which will be used to get him an apartment and food.
The rest of the money will be handed over after GoFundMe conducts an investigation relying on items seized by the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office.
A couple, Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico, started the campaign after McClure ran out of gas and became stranded last October, and Bobbitt helped her out with his last $20.
The response was incredible: 14,347 people donated $402,706 over the course of 10 months.
Since then, the money has been in dispute, and Bobbitt is suing the couple, accusing them of fraud. Bobbitt's attorney says his client has only seen about $75,000 of that money and should have gotten about $300,000 more after GoFundMe's fees.
The couple has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but a court order deadline for them to hand over the cash has passed.
