Apparently reindeer can't even see red! They don't have the color-detecting eye cells that humans use to see shades of red so why were they so mean to Rudolph?!

It’s the time of year for the office Christmas party, and while it can be fun to relax and have some fun with your co-workers, it can be a little tricky to navigate the party, particularly with alcohol involved, so you don’t damage your standing at work. Business Insider offers tips for surviving your office holiday party, which include:
- Show up for it. This isn’t something you should skip.
- Ask about the dress code ahead of time, and remember it’s a business event.
- Use the party to meet people you don’t already know.
- Don’t talk politics, religion or race relations.
- Know you drinking limit!
- Don’t get romantic with another employee.
- Don’t be the last one to leave.
- Don’t go to the third venue. It’s okay to go out someplace with your co-workers after the party ends, but don’t go to a third venue after that. Because: “It’s no longer the ‘happy hour’ crowd. It’s now the ‘let’s rage’ crowd.”
- Only post positive things about the party and other attendees on social media and ask people before posting photos of them.
- Make it to work the next day.
- Don’t go on an empty stomach.
- Be sensitive to different religious affiliations.

One day after it was announced that Kevin Hart would be hosting the Oscars, now he isn't. Homophobic tweets from Kevin's past have again resurfaced. At first, Kevin chose not to apologize for his past jokes, but instead sadi that he has changed since then. He later Instagrammed that The Academy had asked him to apologize but he still chose not to do so.
Yet, he did still apologize later on Twitter and officially stepped down from this year's hosting gig:
I'm sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) December 7, 2018
I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's....this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) December 7, 2018
Do I think he has, in fact, changed his views on things? Absolutely. Does this make it okay that he's said crappy things in the past? I'm not sure about that. His past homophobic jokes are just a small part of what makes living as a member of the LGBTQ community challenging. We're continuting to move forward and it is getting better most of the time. I don't know if he should have been asked to leave the gig but it seems that he chose to step back before The Academy had to make that decision. I'm just hoping that this will serve as a reminder of how hurtful words can be and encourage others to be more mindful when they speak and post and encourage spreading kindness and love. <3 Ballzer
