Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

Payne, 37, recorded herself trying on her new Chewbacca mask in a Kohls parking lot for a Facebook Live video. Her hysterical reaction to putting on the mask, which has a moveable mouth and a built-in speaker to play Chewbacca's sounds, quickly captured the internet's attention.

According to The Blaze, Kohls told Forbes that the mask shown in the video sold out soon after Payne's video went viral. 
 
“That’s just crazy,” Payne told the BBC. “I’m just laughing — in all honesty, that is ridiculous. I’ve looked at the number of views and it just seems like someone is just playing with a calculator.”
