'Twas Trending. Ding Dong dodges fan, and no ratings for Rankin Pumpkin
What’s hot on the social scene? We have the inside of all the happenings over the weekend, courtesy of this week’s 'Twas Trending.
It was a blast from the past when many turned out at the National Stadium in Kingston for the second staging of Strictly 2K. Patrons danced to the hits from the early 2000s. #strictly2k trended on Friday night and went on to play as a throwback on Saturday.
An uproar ensued on social media after a video surfaced of dance hall artist Ding Dong, appearing to dodge a hug from a young male fan. Many took to Facebook to share their concerns. The boy was just a young fan seeking a hug from his idol. Imagine how he feels. So because of the rejection shown, some individuals have decided to consequently 'dodge' Ding Dong for his actions.
