John Oliver Wants CNN to Stop Being Such ‘Fucking Prudes’ About Everything
The coronavirus took the week off from infecting John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight monologues, with the host instead focusing on how a certain cable news network has been covering the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests: CNN and, in his opinion, not well. Not OAN levels of bad, but still … meh. Discussing how a Navy veteran was beaten and showered in pepper spray by federal agents in Portland last week, Oliver mocked CNN’s decision to show the entirety of the unprovoked violence, but chose to blur the man’s middle fingers when he flashed them to the agents in the aftermath. “That is intense and, frankly, says so much about this country right now,” he explained. “CNN will show federal agents treating a human being like a piñata and censor the same man for rightfully telling those agents to fuck the fuck off. Look, we’re already witnessing the rapid decline of American civil liberties here... (incomplete)
Hollywood's identity crisis: Actors, writers and producers warn of 'reverse racism' in the film industry which has created a 'toxic' climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man
A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.
A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as 'more toxic than Chernobyl', with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.
The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white.
'I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,' Peele said. 'Not that I don't like white dudes. But I've seen that movie before.'

NBA players are already snitching on Disney bubble violators
The NBA’s “snitch hotline” is apparently blowing up.
As part of a 113-page memo, the NBA set up an anonymous hotline for players to report peers they suspect are breaking the rules.
Multiple tips have already been submitted to the hotline, according to The Athletic, to report potential protocol violations. The NBA is attempting to uphold a bubble-like atmosphere in Orlando, Fla. in order to resume its season later this month.
The tips have already irked some around the league. Clippers guard Lou Williams posted a rat emoji on twitter. In an interview with Bleacher Report, Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie — who is sitting out the restart after testing positive for coronavirus — announced “To all my fellow NBA players, don’t call the snitch hotline.”

HGTV’s Erin Napier Is ‘Turning Off’ Instagram Comments Until 2021 After Calling Out Trolls
Erin Napier knows social media can be a dark place — and now she’s taking matters into her own hands and changing the way people can interact with her posts.
The Home Town star, 34, previously opened up about Instagram bullies having taken an emotional toll on her, and on Thursday morning she announced on that platform that she’s taking significant steps towards taming those trolls by turning off comments on her posts until 2021.
“Turning off comments till 2021 feels like a good move,” she captioned a photo of her and her husband (and HGTV co-star), Ben, 37. “It’s getting harder to shoulder every opinion from every direction at all times about everything when everyone is freaking out constantly. There’s too much noise.”
She used an analogy to explain how social media can be deceiving, and explained that commenters often react without seeing the full picture.

Tiffany Haddish shaved her hair and then immediately shut down critics of her new style
On Tuesday, the actor and comedian took to Instagram with a series of videos in which she's seen cutting and shaving her hair. In her first clip, Haddish said she's been talking about shaving her head "for years," but always faced people who tried to "block" her decision. Now, however, Haddish say she's no longer concerned with what other people, especially men, have to say about her hair and body.
Jodie Comer is getting canceled over supposed Trump-supporting boyfriend
Jim Jefferies Slams Millennials & Cancel Culture in New Netflix Special
Jeffree Star is staying quiet while Shane Dawson's career lies in tatters. Here's why celebrities like him seem uncancelable.
Shane Dawson's reputation is currently hanging in the balance. He's lost over a million subscribers in the last two weeks after old footage resurfaced of his past involving racism and jokes about the sexualization of animals and children. The final straw for many came when Tati Westbrook dropped her video and claimed Dawson and Jeffree Star were the ones who manipulated her into almost ruining James Charles' career last year.
However, while Dawson responded to Westbrook's video in real time on an Instagram livestream, Star is nowhere to be seen. While several of Dawson's friends have publicly supported him, Star is not among them. There have been a few theories about his whereabouts thanks to fan photos cropping up on Twitter, but his own social media presence has been silent.
Some celebrities, like Star, seem bulletproof to criticism. Morgan Freeman, for example, was accused of sexually harassing eight women and issued a statement denying the allegations in 2018, which everyone seems to have forgotten about.
Chris Brown also still has fans despite being convicted of assaulting Rihanna in 2009 and a long history of violence towards women. High profile stars like Justin Bieber are among his fanbase, which vehemently defends his right to still make music. YouTuber Gus Johnson said in a video he "continues to be shocked" at how Brown's career is not over when he listed all the legal issues and charges he's been involved in over the last 15 years.
Married At First Sight star Stacey Hampton comes under fire from US audiences for her lip filler
Married At First Sight star Stacey Hampton was polarising to Australian audiences.
And it appears the 26-year-old law graduate is just as divisive for US audiences after the series started airing on Lifetime network.
Amid tense scenes airing showing her fighting with 'husband' Michael Goonan, Stacey was met with criticism over her use of lip filler.
'These women and their freaking lip injections!!! It looks like she has a built in life preserver!' one fan wrote about single mother Stacey.
Nextdoor Ends Its Program for Forwarding Suspicions to Police
Nextdoor.com Inc., the neighborhood social networking app, is discontinuing a feature that allowed users to forward their posts directly to local police departments, the company announced late Thursday. The move comes as Nextdoor faces scrutiny over its role as a platform for racial profiling, its increasingly cozy partnerships with law enforcement, and after reports that some of its community moderators were removing posts that mentioned Black Lives Matter. But the company is retaining other features that facilitate communication with police through the app, including one that allows direct messages to law enforcement.
“As part of our anti-racism work and our efforts to make Nextdoor a place where all neighbors feel welcome, we have been examining all aspects of our product,” the post read. “After speaking with members and public agency partners, it is clear that the Forward to Police feature does not meet the needs of our members and only a small percentage of law enforcement agencies chose to use the tool.”
Kristen Bell Slammed for New Children's Book That Encourages Colorblind Racism
Kristen Bell has been slammed for writing a children’s book that promotes being colorblind instead of recognizing actual people of different races and ethnicities.
In a video posted by the Associated Press, the actress and author said, “The world loves debate, I do, and debate talks about differences. It’s layering difference upon difference upon difference, ‘I think this’, ‘no, you should think this’, it’s just constantly pointing out divisive narratives.”
She continued, “Our kids are absorbing all of that and maybe we needed a bit of a road map to show them that it’s actually great to start with similarities first.”
10 Outdated Disney Movies Parents Won't Show Their Kids, According to New Poll
With screen time limits completely out the window due to the coronavirus pandemic and weeks on end indoors, my husband and I have been letting our 20-month-old watch more TV and movies than we otherwise would. When we couldn't take one more Blue's Clues episode or Trolls rewatch, we broke out the next social distancing tool up our sleeves: Disney+, Disney's streaming service.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Moana, and Toy Story were all hits—we've got a major Buzz Lightyear fan on our hands—but when it came time to watch 1953's Peter Pan, we were struck by how outdated it was. I certainly didn't remember all of the racism and sexism. Between Peter Pan telling Wendy that "girls talk too much," the guns (!!), Tinker Bell trying to kill Wendy over jealousy, and the treatment of Native Americans (“What makes the red man red?"—seriously?!), I was happy when my son walked away to play with his toys and just wasn't that into it.
Chrissy Teigen Makes Twitter Account Private After Alison Roman Attack
Chrissy Teigen will not be active on social media anymore after Alison Roman, a famous cookbook author, came after her by leaving comments about the brand the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model has cultivated.
The food writer, who is famous for her easy-to-recreate dishes, is going viral nowadays for an interview, wherein she slammed the business model of Teigen. Specifically, the New York Times columnist pointed out that the “Cravings” author’s style in building her brand isn’t something she would copy, according to E! News.
While many people rushed to her defense, the mom of two decided to take a rest from social media by making her Twitter account private.
“This is what always happens. The first day, a ton of support, then the next, 1 million reasons as to why you deserved this. It never fails,” Teigen wrote before turning her account private.
Beloved gay weatherman unceremoniously fired after standing up to Trump-supporting, far-right, anti-lockdown protesters
Sven Sundgaard, 39, is a gay vlogger and until last week was a weatherman for TV station KARE 11, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. According to Queerty, he is one of the most high profile LGBT+ people in the Twin Cities.
Sundgaard had worked for KARE 11 for 14 years, but was let go last week after he shared a Facebook post that referred to anti-lockdown protestors in Minnesota as “white nationalist Nazi sympathizer gun fetishist miscreants”.

Ellen DeGeneres' bodyguard at 2014 Oscars backs up not-so-nice allegations: 'She's cold'
A former bodyguard who was assigned to protect Ellen DeGeneres during her hosting gig at the 2014 Oscars tells Fox News that he can attest to the recent allegations made by others about her unfriendly and selfish demeanor.
The former security official left SIS in 2019. At the Oscars, Majercak said he spent "a lot of time" with De Rossi, who was "very pleasant and carried on a conversation."
"It started going negatively when she introduced me to Ellen and Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn't even say 'hello,' or 'thank you for protecting my mother, my wife and me,'" Majercak continued.
