Senator Kamala Harris Shares Heartwarming Video of Her and Her Niece
Just when we thought there wasn’t any positivity left to end this exhausting election week, Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, shares a heartwarming video with her niece. The now-viral video features Senator Harris and her niece having a conversation about how she could be the United States president, but not until the girl is 35. The video shows the significance of Harris being the first woman Vice President–as well as the first Black and South-Asian-American VP–if both Harris and Joe Biden win the 2020 Presidential Election.
Group of TikTok Creators Get Judge to Block TikTok Ban
A group of popular TikTok creators issued a new lawsuit against the Trump Administration’s potential TikTok ban. The creators with million-plus followers argued that they’d lose their followers and professional opportunities brought to them by TikTok read: their source of income. This isn’t the first time a judge has moved to block the ban. Just last month, a D.C. judge blocked the ban that would have removed TikTok from U.S. app stores. Interim TikTok CEO Vanessa Pappas said in a statement, “We are deeply moved by the outpouring of support from our creators, who have worked to protect their rights to expression, their careers, and to help small businesses, particularly during the pandemic.”
LA's Hottest Grocery Store
The high-priced and uber organic grocery store, Erewhon, has become a celeb-filled haven in sunny Los Angeles. Stars like Cara Delevigne, Jake Gyllenhaal, Demi Lovato, and Hilary Duff fill the aisles of the trendy Goop-endorsed grocery store. And now, with LA shut down and the entertainment industry on pause, LA's “elite” and spotlight hungry dwellers are flocking to Erewhon for a sense of normalcy and fresh-pressed juices full of supplements to keep them healthy. Erewhon has become a cultural phenomenon, even parodied in Netflix’s show You as the store Anavrin where Penn Badgley falls in love with his latest flame, Love.
Overheard Helps Ease Election Anxiety
Earlier this week, the group behind Instagram accounts, Overheard New York and Overheard LA, offered resources to followers struggling to stay calm during the election. Their services included a zoom meditation hour and then a series of “elevated stimulus packages” throughout the week. To opt into these elevated stimulus packages, all followers had to do was text “calm me the f**k down” to (917) 905-7071, and then Overheard would link subscribers to resources.
Hopefully, that wasn’t too much to overwhelm you with this week. Remember to take a break from social media this weekend and we will see you back later with another edition of PLANOLY’s Social Sphere.
