Urban Outfitters is trending across Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter. Not because people are excited about summer shopping. They're calling to boycott the company after accusations that it stole a necklace design from independent jeweler Stevie Koerner. Side-by-side images of Koerner's necklace and Urban Outfitters' version on Koerner's Tumblr page were reblogged more than 5,000 times. Once Twitter users got wind of the news, Urban Outfitters shot to the top of the social media site's trending list. Many tweeters are calling to boycott the store, including actress-singer Miley Cyrus. The clothing store replied on Twitter saying, "Hey guys, we see your tweets regarding the I Heart Destination necklace. Please know that our accessories buying team is looking into this."
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is buzzing in Yahoo! Search for an unusual reason: his eating habits. The social network pioneer told Fortune Magazine that he is challenging himself to eat more responsibly and sustainably. He's not separating himself from meat; he's getting closer to it. "The only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself," the 27-year-old billionaire told Fortune. "It's easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day." So far he's slaughtered a goat, slayed a pig, and boiled a live lobster. The response around social media has been positive. Many say they applaud his thoughtful way of eating.
Yahoo! users are revving up their engines for this weekend's Indy 500. Yahoo! Searches for Indy drivers are up, and the women are leading the pack. The four female drivers in the race are being searched more than the men, with Danica Patrick leading the pack. The most searched male driver is Alex Tagliani, who will start the race in the post position this weekend.
