People are up in arms about the proposed ban on refugees and green card holders in the United States. From former President Barack Obama, to businesses like Starbucks, hell, even Dale Earnhardt Jr. sympathized with Muslim refugees, saying that his ancestors traveled from Germany to escape religious persecution.


The refugee ban has resulted in countless protests and fervor that can be seen on social media.


And like any good protest, art is playing a huge part in the current ban of refugees and people all over the web are sharing painfully relevant and poignant works of art that speak to the current state of affairs.

RecircHumorSomeone Asked the Internet to Share Their Craziest IRL Plot Twists and the Results Did Not Disappoint

When I moved across the country a couple of months ago, I was trying to find a short-term place to stay while I looked around for an apartment to make my home. I've gone through my share of shady sublets, and was so worried I wouldn't land a spot that I started looking for one to book months in advance. On my first day of browsing, I came across a gorgeous and affordable one-bedroom in a really convenient location, but was super skeptical of the post because of how traumatized I am from my previous experiences. 

I've dealt with creeps who ask for a cash deposit then claim they're in the hospital on the exact same day they're supposed to meet me for the keys. I've had people cancel my reservation once I've already landed in their city... Needless to say, I'm a seasoned subletter. When I found this lovely one-bedroom on Craigslist, I was sure the listing was too good to be true. So I took a proactively defensive stance when I reached out via email. I asked for boring specifications on the apartment and went over payment details with exhaustive thoroughness. I even asked if a friend could stop by to make sure there were no secret squatter tenants, or anything sketchy like that. Then, I got an email back. 

TWIST: I recognized the address from the gushing fan mail I had sent it years ago. The apartment belonged to my favorite living writer and here I was, casually emailing with her directly. Flash forward a few months and we're friendly and occasionally email each other or meet for coffee to catch up. And that's how my nightmare sublet search turned into a friendship with one of the best and most famous writers of our time.

I live for real-life plot twists like this. They keep us on our toes while we cruise through this journey of life. Which is why when u/whytho37 asked Reddit to share their most insane plot twists, the results were incredible. 

Scroll down for twists so good, you wouldn't believe they actually happened if you saw them in a film.
