Heads up if you're buying Cuban food tonight: It may be flagged from popular payment app Venmo.
Employees at Buzzfeed have reportedly spoken out about odd charges pending on the app, after using the word "Cuban" in payment requests to friends. The issue comes on part of the Treasury Department, attempting to keep tabs on the country's "trade sanctions".

The latest in Venezuela's food crisis shows that the military is now trafficking any and all food that comes in.

In the wake of the death of actress Carrie Fisher, Cinnabon attempted to make light of the sad situation, which ultimately backfired.
The cinnamon bun chain created an artistic tribute to Fisher's most well-known role as Princess Leia, showing the late actress with cinnabuns as "ears". The chain posted the graphic to social media, writing "RIP Carrie Fisher, you'll always have the best buns in the galaxy." Twitter quickly responsed, calling out Cinnabon for their "insensitive" tweet, while others explained that the actress would have loved the witty, foodie joke.
