Yahoo News says the Toronto Zoo is under fire for celebrating Valentine’s Day with cockroaches. The zoo will name a cockroach after your ex-partner for $25. Proceeds benefit the zoo. They posted; “Roses are red, violets are blue… Is there someone in your life that’s bugging you? Give them goosebumps this Valentine’s Day by naming a cockroach in their honor.”
People are angry about the promotion and are voicing their feelings online ..
”Breaking up with someone can be a traumatic experience. People hurt mentally and often resort to physical pain. Shame on you! Whoever signed off on this idiotic idea is a horrible human being”
”What are you people thinking about. You’re just adding to the general lack of respect that grows by the day in our society. Whoever came up with this and whoever approved it should be out on the street on their a**!”
”Who is the top executive at the Toronto Zoo? This is as sick idea, so maybe we should start at the top. And Twitter should be worried that it is trying to censor replies to this post, rather than deal with the problem at the Zoo.”
”Sounds like bullying and harassment”

Breaking up is hard to do. The adage is true, and while the breakups featured in these films are painful, they are also interesting and entertaining for audiences. The powerful fracturing of unions reminds us of some of our own heartaches.
Stacker dug into the rich history of break-up cinema and made a list of the best movies across genres and over the decades. From movies following people in the traumatic aftermath of a behind-the-scenes split to those with pivotal break-up scenes and others with multiple breakups strewn throughout—the films on this list all illustrate narrative-defining break-up moments. To qualify, the film had to have at least a 6.5 on IMDb and over 2,000 user votes. Metascores were also provided for critical context.
These films cross genres and feature characters from all walks of life. One movie focuses on the breakdown of a marriage and how far a couple will go to hold onto the marital home. Another finds a middle-aged New Yorker redefining her life and identity after discovering her husband’s extramarital affairs.
