Kevin Ward Jr., the 20-year-old racing prospect killed in an accident by NASCAR star Tony Stewart, is being mourned across his native New York State and beyond.

While no criminal investigation into Stewart's conduct is underway, Ward's relatives and friends are taking Tony to task for his actions in the wake of the tragedy.

The young driver’s aunt posted to Facebook Sunday after the crash, “Thanks for thinking of our family [Tony] Stewart when you decided to be a d!ck!”

She called her late nephew “one of a kind, a true race car driver, a p!ss head and a sweetie all in one, a young man who will be truly missed by many!”

Kevin Ward's parents, who were reportedly in the stands watching the race, were a bit more diplomatic, according to local ABC affiliate WHAM:

"We appreciate the prayers and support we are receiving from the community, but we need time to grieve and wrap our heads around all of this."

As previously reported, in an incident filmed by a fan, Tony Stewart killed Kevin Ward Jr. accidentally on the race track this weekend in Canandaigua, N.Y.

His car swiped Ward's, which spun out of control, at which point Kevin exited his car and began roaming the track on foot, pointing at Stewart. Then tragedy struck.

With the debate over breastfeeding in public continuing to rage on, Miranda Sowers got into trouble over the weekend for a different kind of public act involving her child.

The Texas mother of three tells KHOU that she took her four-month old daughter into a bathroom at Brother's Pizza Express, only to discover it did not have a changing table.

So she figured she'd use her own table at restaurant to take care of this dirty deed.

"I thought, 'you know what I've got my own changing pad, she's tiny, she fits right here on the chair,'" Sowers explains of the decision. "So I laid her down quickly and quietly changed her diaper."

Mother, kids

But not quietly enough for an employee to not notice, leading to Sowers getting thrown out of the establishment.

NASCAR star Tony Stewart is under police investigation after taking the life of fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr. in a horrific accident yesterday during the Empire Super Sprints series event in Canandaigua, New York.

Ward was 20 years old.

His vehicle had crashed into an outside wall after being clipped by another driver (believed to be Stewart). Ward proceeded to exit his car walk on to the track to confront Stewart.

In the following video, you can see Ward pointing his finger and yelling, as one car swerves to avoid him and then Stewart's No. 14 plows into him.

Ward was taken to the hospital and died of the injuries sustained in the crash.

When is a Kim Kardashian selfie book NOT the strangest piece of book news in a given week?

When Penguin Publishing releasing a special Charlie and the Chocolate Factory cover in honor of that book's 50th anniversary... and it looks like this:

Meant to evoke spoiled character Veruca Salt, the photo is drawing criticism across the Internet for seemingly being at odds with the story’s tone and plot.

A social media uproar was sparked this week by a skinny Gap model. We're not talking your generic skinny model, either. This woman is ... well, she's really thin.

The clothing brand Tweeted out this photo of the woman modeling a plaid green shirt-dress with the caption, "Dress up your days in pastel plaid #since1969":

The lighting and background don't help, but followers immediately began criticizing the model's weight and what message the company was sending.

One wrote, "Seriously, @Gap? In what world do people look like this? Perhaps you could select models who represent regular gals & not a skeletor ghost."

In response, the company issued a statement to media outlets:

An unnamed woman in South Carolina called the authorities this week because her 15-year old son was acting totally normal.

According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to a residence on Tuesday afternoon because a mother told them her two-year old daughter “turned on the TV and porn was on.”

She then found her son in his bedroom and figured he had been watching the naked action, heard her arrive home and quickly booked it upstairs.

Concerned Mother

"[The mom] requested that a report be done to document ... her son's behavior and due to her daughter being exposed to porn," the police report reads, as the mother told authorities she had been having many other difficulties with her teenage child for awhile.

A woman apparently tried to kill a spider by spraying it with aerosol and then lighting it on fire. Ladies and gentlemen, do not recommend trying that at home.

Otherwise, you might not have a home. Much like the woman in question.

Fire Spider

The Wales resident really did attempt this means of offing the eight-legged intruder, despite the fact that flaming chemicals likely pose a greater risk than spiders.

A blaze quickly took hold and spread, as fires do, torching the home.

On the bright side, we're assuming that the spider didn't survive.

The encounter led to what has to be some of the more unusual tweets from emergency services, like this one from South Wales fire official Jennie Griffiths:

Code Adorable! I repeat, we have a Code Adorable! Hide the Wii and the juice boxes!

The Secret Service dealt with the world's cutest threat last night when a toddler squeezed through the White House security gates and on to the North Lawn, triggering an automatic lockdown.

As a result of this breach, President Obama’s residence went into high alert and Pennsylvania Avenue was closed (per protocol) until the pint-size interloper was apprehended.

Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, told the media that the unidentified child would not face any serious charges.

If you've been on Facebook this week, you've likely seen pictures of people drenching themselves in ice water, accompanied by the hashtag #icebucketchallenge.

It's all part of a campaign to raise awareness and money for ALS and ALS research, as well as a fun time for those who enjoy watching silly videos.

To that end, here's The Bachelorette winner Josh Murray doing just as the #icebucketchallenge would imply, and nominating fiancee Andi Dorman:

The idea behind the challenge is this that one receives challenge from someone else and then have 24 hours to accept, as Josh Murray has done here.

In doing so, the participant shouts out the cause he is supporting and challenging friends to continue the message, and/or donating money to charity.

if you choose not to accept, which would just be lame, because it's harmless and fun, you have to donate $100 to an ALS association of your choice.

Which you could just do anyway. And should, to make a real difference.

Before it made its way to our beloved Bachelorette duo, the meme began with Julie and Pete Frates, who has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

You have some controversial company, Kendall Jones.

Earlier this summer, we posted photos of Jones (a 19-year old Texas Tech cheerleader) posing with animals she hunted down in South Africa, as the blonde college student faced major online criticism for bragging about the kills on Facebook.

Now, the Canterbury Crusaders (a rugby team based in New Zealand) has done the same thing.

In the following photo gallery, members Tom Taylor, Ben Funnell, Sam and George Whitelock and Tyler Bleyendaal are proudly sitting over bloody big game carcases, much to the chagrin and anger of animal rights activists.

Ruggers and Dead Zebra
This rugby team is facing criticism for posing with a dead zebra during a hunting trip to South Africa.

“When New Zealand rugby players have free time in South Africa, see what they get up to,” says The Landmark Foundation of the images. “Here are the Crusaders rugby players killing wildlife for laughs on a recent visit to South Africa.”
