Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.

Gigi Hadid imitates Melania Trump at AMAs

Palestinian-American model, Gigi Hadid, appeared at the American Music Awards and put on a fairly convincing Melania Trump impersonation, pulling that same permanent squint that the FLOTUS-elect always seems to have etched onto her face, a thick, generically Eastern European accent, and talking about how much she loves her husband Barack and her children Sasha and Malia – a reference to Melania's Republican National Convention speech, which she plagiarized from Michelle Obama. – Huffington Post

Monkey attack sparks tank battle in Libya

A battle involving tanks and mortar fire broke out in Libya after three men used a pet monkey to attack a school girl. The incident in the southern city of Sabha sparked four days of fighting that left 16 people dead and 50 injured after the monkey –released by members of the Gaddadfa tribe – pulled off a school girls' headscarf, prompting fellow members of her Awlad Suleiman clan to kill the monkey as well as the three men that owned it, which then escalated into more violence. Libya sounds like such a reasonable place. – The Guardian

Mike Pence called out at theatre performance, Trump weeps for him on Twitter

Vice President-elect, Mike Pence, attended a Broadway performance of Hamilton in New York on Saturday night, where he was called out by members of the multi-racial cast of various sexual orientations, and exposed to the fears that his bigoted, offensive, racist campaign stoked in the hearts of most Americans. The audience booed him repeatedly, while that delicate snowflake Donald Trump had the gall to accuse the cast of harassment and demand an apology. Oh the irony. – New York Times

Hooligans attack son of footballing legend, Henrik Larsson

Supporters of Swedish football club, Helsingborgs, stormed the pitch after the team was relegated to the Swedish second division, throwing flags and chairs at players and attacking the son of the team's manager, Henrik Larsson – a truly legendary footballer back in his playing days, who won titles at Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United. Stewards intervened before it got too violent, but the hooligans did manage to strip Jordan Larsson of his shirt, which was probably their way of saying that he doesn't deserve to wear it. Henrik warned supporters that if they even think about coming to his home, that he owns many dogs. Whether they're chihuahuas or pit bulls is unknown. – Sky Sports News

Goldberg beats Brock Lesnar at WWE Survivor Series 2016

12 years on from his victory in this competition against the exact same opponent, Goldberg has defeated Brock Lesnar in the 2016 edition of the WWE Survivor Series again! Can you believe it? Of course you can believe it, because right around the same time you find out that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are figments of your parents imagination, you quickly realize that wrestling is staged as well and probably decided by a flip of the coin by whoever writes these things. But come one, at least try to act surprised. – Bleacher Report
