Photo-bombs are hugely popular on social media.

They are done for a whole range of reasons, usually to make people laugh.

However, two girls photo-bombed one Italian politician in protest.


Matteo Salvini currently serves as Deputy Prime Minister of Italy and Minister of the Interior. He is also known to be anti-LGBT.

So two sicilian young women trolled Salvini with a kiss during an election rally in Caltanissetta. The women have been identified as Gaia Parisi and Matilde Rizzo, social activists.

The pair approached Salvini and asked for a selfie. Salvini gave his biggest smile while the ladies kissed at the moment the photo was taken.

It was a picture perfect trap,

They were at the event as protesters, when they joined a line of supporters for selfies with Salvini. When it was their turn, the two kissed.

Security separated the two. Salvini wished the two well, then patted Rizzo on the head and wished they...

"had sons."


The kiss was a protest against Salvini and his endorsement of the anti-LGBT, anti-feminist and anti-abortion World Congress of Families (WCF) in Verona.

Salvini has said his government would defend the rights of children to have:

"a mother and a father. So long as I am minister, wombs for rent do not exist in practice–they are crimes."

The 19 year-old women, who are just friends, were interviewed and said that the idea of the kiss came from the Prime Minister's support of the WCF.

Parisi and Rizzo said:

"This provocative idea came to our mind because he was clearly standing for the Verona's WCF, We have achieved our goal: we made ourselves heard and this is important."

Parisi said, in an interview with CNN,

"(Ours is) a message of love and tolerance against the language and the attitude of hatred that politicians like Matteo Salvini keep spreading, But also it's an encouragement not to give up, to keep protesting against discrimination and injustices, because even a simple and natural act like a kiss can open a political debate."

Parisi shared the photo on Instagram because she believes Salvini, and politicians like him, use social media:

"in a totally improper way."

The WCF is a US-based coalition that is held over three days in Verona. The WCF promotes values of the Christian right and back the far-right League, a partner in Italy's coalition government, and attracts Italian neo-fascist groups.

Parisi and Rizzo have received lots of support from fans around social media.









This is not the first time something like this has happened to Salvini. In February, a 15-year-old boy from Sardinia trolled him during an event.

Salvini enjoys taking selfies with supporters and that seems to be his down fall. The boy took a video selfie questioning Salvini about allegations that the League stole €49m ($55,000,000) from the Italian state.

Salvini walked away.

Keep up the great work ladies and gents of Italy!

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
