Girlfriends All Over The World Are Losing Their Boyfriends To The Video Game 'Fortnite'

No, this isn't a joke — women everywhere are calling for a ban on the popular video game 'Fortnite', which they claim is brainwashing their boyfriends to stop paying attention to them.

Fortnight Battle Royale is a free game available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Mac and iPhone that places up to 100 players on a constantly-shrinking, fictional island. They engage in an all-out dog-eat-dog deathmatch, using weapons to attack each other and various resources on the island to build defensive forts.

Currently, there are two active online petitions looking to get the game scrapped. The first petition was started a concerned girlfriend and reads a simple message:


The second petition, titled 'Get rid of fortnite', reads a similar plea to the first. As many as 682 people have given their signatures to the petition so far, and that number continues to grow.

Many supporters have also taken to the comment section to vent, with many statements describing the game "annoying" and "distracting."


And it doesn't stop there — Twitter is currently teeming with the rants of upset girlfriends who are livid that they've lost their boyfriends to the game:

People In Durham Are Now Required To Track Any & All Visitors Or Risk Facing A Hefty Fine

If you don't keep a list of your guests' info, you could potentially get in trouble.

If you're planning on having some friends over and you're living in the Durham Region (which is anywhere from Pickering to Whitby) there are some new rules that you now need to follow.

As of September 11 at 12:01 a.m., anyone who hosts a social gathering in the area — from homeowners, tenants, owners, and business operators — must conduct contract tracing of everyone who comes over. This means having a complete list of names and contact information of everyone who comes over (no matter how old they are) and holding onto that information for at least a month.
