Sebastian Stan Unloaded On ‘Idiots’ Crowding The Beaches In Florida During A Pandemic
“There was a meme going around which really kind of put me in my place which was like ‘Your grandparents went to war, and you’re being asked to sit on a couch.’ Like, get the fuck with it,” Stan said. “I talked to a couple friends who are in the workforce like cops out there sleeping in their garages, working 20 hours a day; nurses coming home and not being able to hold their children because they’re afraid they’re going to contaminate their families, then going back to work. You hear that stuff and it blows my mind because it makes me feel like I have such privilege to be able to sit around here while these people are beating themselves.”
“But what makes me insane is seeing that the beaches in fucking Miami are still flooded with these fucking idiots...
Tone-deaf NYU dean sends video of herself dancing to students seeking tuition refunds
Hundreds of students at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts demanded a partial tuition refund since spring classes were moved online amid the coronavirus pandemic –and their dean responded with a bizarre video of herself dancing to REM’s “Losing my Religion.’’
As of Friday evening, a Change.org petition started by NYU students has garnered more than 2,600 signatures from people seeking the tuition relief.
Students say online classes and remote learning via video conferencing app’s like Zoom are not worth the school’s $58,000-a-year tuition.
The petition is pushing for the NYU Board of Trustees “to refund a portion of our Spring 2020 tuition paid for the resources, universally deemed crucial to arts education, lost in the recent switch to remote teaching.”
Michael Rapaport Drops 24 F-Bombs In Angry Rant Against Coronavirus Revelers
Public health officials are urging people to remain inside as much as possible to prevent the spread of coronavirus, yet news footage shows crowded parks and beaches in some places.
And actor Michael Rapaport is pretty angry about the whole thing.
Readers be warned: Rapaport’s language is salty.
“Get your little, dirty, fucking grubby, selfish, YOLO fucking dumb tattooed faces in the fucking house,” he said, addressing younger people.
And parents? You’re not off the hook, either.
“Parents, get your fucking kids,” Rapaport said. “This nice guy shit? It’s done. Get your fucking kids in the fucking house.”

Ed Asner Urges Trump Not to Kill Betty White
Ed Asner would very much like Betty White to live. Also Carl Reiner, William Shatner, Mel Brooks, and Cloris Leachman. Oh, and himself.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Emmy-winning TV legend (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) directed a tweet at Donald Trump in response to the president’s comments which insinuated that he plans to reopen the country in weeks. Doing so would defy the pleas of public health experts and put vulnerable populations of the country, including the elderly, at higher risk of deadly battles with the novel coronavirus.

Nyle Dimarco Has Coronavirus Symptoms — This Is Why He Won’t Test
There’s been a lot of people testing positive for COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus. A whole lot of people. So many that the World Health Organization has deemed it a pandemic. As a result of how rapidly things are spreading, there’s been a bit of a run on testing as there is still a lot of uncertainty around things, and you can be infected without showing symptoms for days, sometimes even weeks. But even though actor Nyle Dimarco has been showing almost all of the symptoms having contracted COVID-19, he refuses to be tested.
“I’ve been really sick and am now on the mend,” the actor wrote in an Instagram post. He also signed the entire message. “It is very possible I contracted coronavirus and I have access to get tested but I do not want to. The reason is because there is a shortage of COVID-19 test kits in the U.S. and the sick patients need it more than I do.”

Max Konnor Is Named CAM4's First-Ever Male Ambassador
Since some departments of health are encouraging people to go back to cyber sex, we anticipate an increase in people visiting cam sites. Well, in a pretty amazing sense of timing, one of the largest cam sites is announcing their first-ever male ambassador: say hello to Max Konnor, the new face (and body) of CAM4.
"I'm very excited to use my platform and brand to represent this company in a wonderful way," Konnor said in a release. "I started camming with CAM4 before I started making videos. I love it — it's like having sex with hundreds of people all at the same time!"

In an alert obtained by ABC News, the FBI’s New York office reports that "members of extremist groups are encouraging one another to spread the virus, if contracted, through bodily fluids and personal interactions."

'Bravo's Andy Cohen Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus
Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and executive producer behind many popular Bravo shows including the Real Housewives franchise, has announced that he is the latest celebrity to be diagnosed with COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavius. In a short post, the host suggests that production for WWHL will be paused momentarily.
"After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus," he wrote. "As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we’re putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better. I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves."
Wilson Chandler neighbor defends building manager after Twitter tirade
Wilson Chandler’s neighbors are rushing to the defense of his condo building’s manager after the Nets star bashed her in a furious tweet.
A day after four of his teammates tested positive for the coronavirus, a staffer at his One Brooklyn Bridge Park building allegedly called Chandler in his apartment. He later tweeted, “Building manager called me saying ‘Oh, I seen Nets players had the virus. We would like to know your status. And if you could possibly stay out of the lobby etc. We can’t afford to lose our staff.’”
But one condo owner in the building — which is also reportedly home to Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, and formerly housed then-Nets, now-Bulls star Thaddeus Young — said of the staffer, “She is always professional and courteous and only wants to protect everybody who lives in our building.”
Police Launch Investigation Into Video of Teenagers Coughing on Produce at Grocery Store
Following reports of teenagers coughing on produce at a local grocery store for a video, one Virginia police department has launched an investigation. On Thursday, Purcellville PD released a statement to say it had learned the incident took place at an undisclosed store on Wednesday. Employees at the store removed the items immediately, and now officials have asked parents to monitor their children's activities and social media accounts in order to "avoid the increase of any further such incidents."
"We have learned that this appears to be a disturbing trend on social media across the country, and we ask for help from parents to discourage this behavior immediately," Purcellville police wrote in a Facebook post. "Please talk with your children and explain to them why such behavior is wrong, especially given the current situation regarding the spread of Coronavirus."

LGBT+ ER nurse begs gay men to stop going out and hooking up
An LGBT+ ER nurse has begged gay men to stop going out and bragging about it on social media and said they should protect themselves and others from coronavirus.
While many around the world are following government advice to stay at home and avoid unnecessary socialising, others are ignoring the rules.
If they catch COVID-19 they may get seriously sick themselves – even young people are ending up in hospital. But even more importantly, they will inevitably spread the coronavirus to more people who may be vulnerable and could die.
Meanwhile, others responded to the ER nurse, saying people are still hooking up on apps like Grindr and having sex parties. Because people during sex swap saliva, semen and sweat, it is high risk for passing on coronavirus.

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is a Reminder the Rich and Powerful Won't Save Us
The coronavirus pandemic has been a shock to our systems — political, social, and economic. As governments scramble to adequately respond to outbreaks of COVID-19, mandates to physically isolate ourselves from each other are impacting workers in vulnerable positions. Meanwhile, celebrities are hosting online sing-alongs, some politically powerful people have allegedly exploited the moment for financial gain, and the rich continue to deliver mind-blowing indications that their concern in a global crisis is first and foremost only for themselves.
It’s all an important reminder of something many of us felt even before this moment: The rich and powerful will not save us.
President Donald Trump, of all people, exhibited a rare display of class analysis when asked about the elite getting to the front of the line for tests, saying at a White House press conference Wednesday, “That’s the story of life.”
Trump, a poignant embodiment of the out-of-touch elite, is in this case absolutely correct. Disparities and inequities are nothing new. In this moment of crisis, we will have the chance to bear witness to how the fundamental imbalances of our world protect some and victimize others.
Tori Spelling apologizes for photo of her daughter dressed up as ‘McQuisha’
Tori Spelling has apologized for an Instagram post many have accused as racist.
In the now-deleted photo posted to Spelling’s Instagram stories, the “Beverly Hills 90210” alum’s daughter, Hattie, 8, could be seen dressed up as a character dubbed “McQuisha,” donning Cheetos as fingernails and wearing a bandana on her head.
Following the post, Twitter users were quick to take Spelling to task.
“Racism takes no days off even during a pandemic,” one user wrote. “why did you think this was ok?!?! Let me guess ‘ignorance’ and ‘you’re so so sorry.’”
Meanwhile, another user wrote: “You’re a racist who tried to be comedic in THIS time ESPECIALLY!”
Britney Spears shares powerful message to her Instagram bullies
Britney Spears (and us) have enough of you bullying her online.
Earlier this week, the legendary pop star told her trolls that she’s aware of the comments surrounding her gorgeous Instagram posts, and she never meant to cause any harm because she is what? BRITNEY SPEARS and she is an ANGEL.
She wrote: “For me I get really excited about my posts and I like to share them with you all. I’ve never owned a white bathing suit before and I simply liked the red background! Reading all of the mean comments really hurts my feelings.”
Britney rightfully told the naysayers that they shouldn’t be “saying all of these mean things to someone you don’t even know” and right now, in this terrifying coronavirus pandemic, we should “be nice to one another”. See? ANGEL.
The star continued to say that she’s “truly sorry if I offended anyone” over some horse-related posts (?).
