Ken Kratz claims he's received 3,000 death threats due to 'Making a Murderer'

Kratz claims that while he has no problem with people questioning cases and looking into the criminal justice system he believes that viewers of Making a Murderer have gone too far. According to Kratz he has received almost 3,000 emails of which "most are insulting in nature". He claims that several of them have made death threats against his family and threatening to rape his daughter.

He then goes on to talk about how a package that was sent to the office exploded only to then be like oh well it was actually a glitter bomb. The glitter bomb allegedly caused "significant damage to [their] office equipment". Kratz finds it disturbing that people are attacking him personally and doesn't seem to understand why they would do this.

Nancy Grace, who said the evidence against Avery was overwhelming and doesn't seem to understand that the real issue is actually the criminal justice system, got on her high horse and asked "Is Netflix going to make a documentary about this?" A ten part docu-series about a glitter bomb sounds totally reasonable after all.

Interestingly enough, Grace is so busy condemning viewers and insisting that the convictions shouldn't be overturned she doesn't seem to care that Kratz abused his position of power to sexually harass and take advantage of domestic abuse victims. Glitter is the real offensive thing in this situation.

Brandon Flowers Might Stop Doing The Killers' Annual Christmas Song!!!! + Updates On The Killers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This might have been the last year to hear a new Christmas song from The Killers!!!

Noooooo. Beloved Bflow says that he's ready to take a break from doing a new Christmas song every year.

It started when they got a call from Bono asking them to do a campaign for Red for The Gap, but he didn't want to do an ad so he wrote a Christmas song instead.

He is glad that it raises money for people in need, but every year he thinks it will take a few days to write and it actually takes a few weeks.

Zayn's Cover Sold Out! Billboard Edits RCA CEO's Comments About Harry... Shades All of 1D Instead.

- Zayn's Billboard cover already sold out online less than 24 hours after its release.
- Sleuthing fans, however, noticed that Billboard edited the online version of the article.
-  Billboard changed the paragraph where RCA chairman and CEO Peter Edge discussed a potential Harry Styles album.
- Original version of the article quoted Edge as saying that he's sure that Harry's solo album won't sound like 1D but he still feels that Zayn's further along, musically.
- In the edited version, Edge said both albums of Harry and Zayn are being eagerly anticipated.
- He added though that he
doesn't know what Harry is planning as he is on a different label.
- Edge also mentioned that when Zayn was in 1D, he was always writing and planning to do his own music.
- The edited version ended with the RCA honcho shading all of 1D saying that he feels that Zayn, maybe, is further along than the others.


Fear the Azoffs! I hope Zayn flops!

Rectify, One of the Best Underrated Shows, gets a 4th and Final Season. OP Mourns Another Death

“RECTIFY is in many ways an existential story that was allowed to come to life during an existential era in serial storytelling,” said the showrunner, McKinnon. “It was a case of perfect timing with the perfect partners. I have always felt that RECTIFY could end at any time or just as easily continue. SundanceTV has been a dream to work with on this journey; I am so grateful to have been allowed the freedom to tell the tale I wanted to tell in the way I felt it should be told with the mad and beautiful collaborators who joined me on the ride… Oh wait, we haven’t shot the final season yet. I’ll get back to you.”

RECTIFY follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his small hometown in Georgia after serving 19 years on death row. Having spent his entire adult life waiting to die, Daniel must now try to find a way to cope with his past and forge a “normal” life with a future before him.

SundanceTV announced that the show will begin production on its fourth and final season in Apr. and premiere in fall 2016.
