10 Outdated Disney Movies Parents Won't Show Their Kids, According to New Poll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got a major Buzz Lightyear fan on our hands—but when it came time to watch 1953's Peter Pan, we were struck by how outdated it was.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.

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.
Celebrity quarantine posts are inflaming tensions between the haves and have-nots
In recent weeks, Anatasia Army, 33, has kept tabs on celebrity social media exploits from the safety of her Brooklyn apartment. She saw when billionaire David Geffen shared his hope that “everyone is staying safe” in an Instagram post uploaded from his $590 million superyacht. And when comedian Ellen DeGeneres compared quarantine to “being in jail.” Most recently, she watched House Speaker Nancy Pelosi inadvertently reveal in a TV segment that she owns two industrial refrigerators, each reportedly worth $12,000.
“As soon as I saw that number, I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I could live on that,’” Army, a babysitter, says. While public displays of wealth have often elicited backlash, the coronavirus pandemic has changed the context almost overnight. A luxury kitchen appliance, Army says, “takes on a new tenor” when lines for food banks stretch for half a mile and the nonprofit hunger relief organization Feeding America estimates that an additional 17.1 million Americans may soon be struggling to eat.
The internet has provided many of us with a much-needed tether to other people and places in the midst of the pandemic, but social media is also playing another role: It has become a catalyst for anger as it exposes the growing chasm between the haves and have-nots. For every video call with a loved one, there’s accumulating evidence of unfairness as people in quarantine reveal their starkly different isolation experiences.
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.”

On Thursday, the 22-year-old model posted a photo wearing a traditional abaya when visiting the Sheikh Zayed Mosque on her trip to the United Arab Emirates, sparking criticism.
“Haram you’re not Muslim so you can’t go to the mosque,” one person commented on her Instagram post. “Oh so if they wear it they’re praised but when muslim girls wear it their bashed and called terrorists??,” another said. A third wrote, “Post your booty one day then one of the most sacred mosques the next.”
Candace Owens blasts leftist cancel culture: 'Godless', 'societal atom bomb'
"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we are flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Wendy Williams Slammed After Saying Gay Men Should 'Stop Wearing Our Skirts and Our Heels'
Wendy Williams is coming under fire for some controversial comments she made about the LGTBTQ community on Thursday’s episode of her self-titled talk show.
“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days,” Williams added. “You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through.”
“And stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” she continued, referencing the trend of gender fluid fashion, made popular by stars like Billy Porter. “Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?”
“Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay.”
Ricky Gervais unloads on Hollywood liberals ahead of Academy Awards, highlights their hypocrisy
Responding to a fan who asked Gervais what his best joke would be if he were hosting Sunday's Academy Awards, Gervais said he would highlight the hypocrisy embedded in calls from Hollywood celebrities for equality.
"'I can't wait to hear all your inspirational speeches about equality, and it's great that the 3 hours you're here tonight is the only time your badly paid migrant house staff will get some time off to sleep this week,'" Gervais responded.
Gay-Haters Lob Venom at Shakira, Jennifer Lopez Halftime Show
The sexy and rather political halftime performance by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira at Sunday’s Super Bowl, featuring revealing costumes, pole dancing, and a condemnation of Donald Trump’s immigration policies, is drawing both praise and criticism, with some of the leading critics coming from the religious right.
One of the most vocal is Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (and a reliably anti-LGBTQ voice). In a Facebook post, Graham dubbed the show “sexual exploitation” — even though he has forgiven Trump for his admitted exploitation of women — and he took its sponsor, Pepsi, and the NFL to task.
“I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time television in order to protect children,” Graham wrote. “We see that disappearing before our eyes. It was demonstrated tonight in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show — with millions of children watching. This exhibition was Pepsi showing young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay. With the exploitation of women on the rise worldwide, instead of lowering the standard, we as a society should be raising it. I’m disappointed in Pepsi and the NFL.”
Stephen King slammed for 'ignorant' tweet about not considering 'diversity' when voting for the Oscars
Famed writer Stephen King has stirred up controversy after admitting he “would never consider diversity in matters of art,” a remark made in reference to his status as a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) voting on Oscar contenders. His remarks come a day after the 2020 Oscar nominations were announced, prompting complaints that women and people of color were largely overlooked. Many critics bemoaned the exclusion of women like Greta Gerwig from the Best Director category, while Harriet’s Cynthia Erivo spoke out about being the only person of color to be nominated across four acting categories.
We are bullying someone because they are putting the quality of work before race, sex or creed. Isn't that how equality works? You can't expect to be rewarded because you are diverse. Diversity in film is at an infancy and it takes experience and hard work to establish quality. Haven't we already doled out enough pittance awards? Just have fun proving them wrong. 14-Jan-2020
Dave Bautista Slams Priest Calling for Pride Month Boycott: 'You Don't Speak for Most Catholics'
Dave Bautista had no time for a Catholic priest denouncing Pride Month.
On June 1, the first day of Pride Month celebrating the LGBTQ community, Rhode Island bishop Thomas Tobin sent out a tweet urging his Catholic followers not to participate in any Pride related activities.
“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ ‘Pride Month’ events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children,” Tobin wrote on Twitter.
