A Taiwanese woman known as the “Bikini Climber” for climbing dangerous mountains crags while wearing a bikini was found frozen to death after a 20-meter-fall, a report says.

She probably knew that this would happen one day, and she had reported been seriously injured in the past from her obsession with social media.

Gigi Wu, 36, was renowned on Taiwanese social media for climbing mountains in a bikini and posting sexy photos from mountain peaks. Not only did she climb without protection from the elements, but she also climbed without companions — a dangerous game even with clothing! Sadly, Wu made one climb too many.

Eight days into a 25-day solo hike on Saturday Wu reportedly called a friend to say she’d fell down a ravine in Central Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain. She also said she was trapped at the bottom of the ravine with a broken leg and could not get out, Taiwan News reported (via the New York Post).

Due to weather conditions, rescuers could not reach Wu for over a day.

Authorities said that the tempers had fallen to freezing overnight.

By the time Wu was fund she had already died from exposure.

According to the Post:

Wu, who also went by Wu Chi-yun, was a local social-media star who posed on some of Taiwan’s highest peaks in barely-there outfits.

In one image, she stands in a rainbow bikini and blue hat, with treacherous boulders in the background.

On Christmas Eve, she shared an image showing her scratched-up legs after being injured in a fall that she said she was lucky to survive.

Mark this as yet another person essentially committing suicide in pursuit of Internet and social media fame.

This beautiful woman is just another victim of the social media age.

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…

Trump Punts Fauci’s Concerns About NFL Season Taking Place During Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

President Trump gave Dr. Anthony Fauci’s concerns over the upcoming NFL season starting during the pandemic a nice, big punt down field, which you can probably bet irked the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, stated that this season of pro-football wasn’t going to happen “unless players are essentially in a bubble.” Trump put Fauci in his place rather quickly by stating that the doctor “has nothing to do” with the NFL. That’s got to sting a little, don’t you think? The president definitely stripped Fauci of his oversized britches, didn’t he? Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “They are planning a very safe and controlled opening,” Trump tweeted. Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football. They are planning a very safe and controlled opening. However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1274006223013249026 Fauci recommended that players be “insulated from the community” and take a coronavirus test “nearly every day.” “If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year,” he said. The NFL has already released the game schedule for the 2020 season, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens over the next few months in regards to the pandemic and if there’s a second wave that might end the season before it has a chance to even start. The president has insisted on multiple occasions that he won’t be watching the games anyway due to the National Anthem protests that happen before every game. According to Ben Carson, several officials have tried to convince Trump to tune in this upcoming season,…
