Besides the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala on Monday night and The Great Gatsby heading to theaters Friday, this week in pop culture has been a lot less about Hollywood and more about current events like the sad story of Jodi Arias, who was found guilty of first degree murder in the killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Nancy Grace has been tirelessly covering Arias’ trial and almost broke down into tears when she broadcast the guilty verdict. In much happier news, Charles Ramsey became an American hero when he rescued three women and a child who had been held captive in Cleveland.

See what Twitter’s comedians had to say about this week’s pop cultural events.
