Author Jessica Knoll shares painful essay about her rape

The dedication of Jessica Knoll's debut novel, Luckiest Girl Alive, reads:

To all the TifAni FaNellis of the world, I know.


In a new essay titled "I Know", the author goes on to explain that while she used to tell readers "It means I know what it's like to not belong", the dedication was also about her personal trauma, one that parallels that of the book's protagonist.

This Week's OJ Fact Check



-Laura McKinney had been working on a screenplay about women on the police force in LA before she moved back to North Carolina where she is now a professor. They met because he saw her working on her laptop and asked what it was since it wasn't that common a sight in the 80's.

-Only two sentences out of 13 hours were allowed in court by Ito. And Fuhrman did say horrible things about Ito's wife (that she "sucked" and "fucked her way to the top") as well as women in general: “I won't eat with them, I won't have coffee with them, I won't be seen with them. It's embarrassing. Where does some woman five feet tall and 98 pounds get off coming out? I can bench press almost four times what she weighs.”

-The defense really was initially denied access to the tapes, and even if not said in any memoirs it wouldn't be too out there to say it was because of racism. Bailey only got to go with Cochran over Shapiro because Bailey offered to pay for his own ticket.

-OJ did film an exercise video weeks before the murder. His own doctor said that, “Although he looked like Tarzan, he was walking more like Tarzan's grandfather.”

-Darden really did lose it at one point and refused to apologize to Ito. He offered a weak one in the end to avoid going to jail.

Everyone but Iggy Azalea is angry at D'angelo Russell

After leaking a video in which his NBA teammate Nick Young admits to cheating on Iggy with barely-legal girls, various sources have confirmed that the release of this video has caused a stir and D'Angelo Russell's teammates have been completely isolating him. This disruption of team chemistry has been cited as a contributing factor in their recent 48 point, franchise worst matching, loss.


Since the story about the Lakers refusing to even eat breakfast with him came out yesterday, 'D'Angelo Russell' has been trending on twitter. Many people have been criticizing him for things like breaking the "man code" and the circle of trust in the locker room and for not knowing his place especially as a rookie. The one person involved who seems to actually approve of the video leak is Iggy Azalea.

Willam calls out Logo for lack of representation

Tag a funny lesbian or 2 cuz I guess @logotv & @wowreport couldnt locate one. I'll start: @fortunefeimster @tignotaro @nicolpaone I don't get why a gay channel has 9 people in a promo and 7 are gay men. Where is the representation?

Civil Rights Attorney Alleges Discrimination in Hamilton Casting Call




A New York City human rights lawyer has so bravely come forward alleging the hottest Broadway musical Hamilton is discriminating against white performers by requesting "non-white" performers in casting calls.

Basically, dude believes the Hamilton casting call violates New York City Human Rights Law and Actors Equity, which forbids employers from discriminating based on race, sex, religion, etc.

This is an actual quote: “What if they put an ad out that said, ‘Whites only need apply?’ Why, African-Americans, Latinos, Asians would be outraged [...] You cannot advertise showing that you have a preference for one racial group over another.”



The press representative and producer of Hamilton say the casting call was approved by Actors Equity and is legal.

Mass Effect: Andromeda marketing survey leaks and angers fans

Today a Bioware customer survey leaked with a description of Mass Effect: Andromeda that may go on to be used in the marketing for the game, containing the text:

"Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in hostile territory – where WE are the aliens – opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us."


Some fans take issue with that and seem to think the game is endorsing colonialism. Although like, isn't it possible from that description that we're supposed to feel like the bad guys? Kinda an Ender's Game vibe, hold the Mormonism?

-Tinashe, who confirmed her label made her collab with CB, Zendaya, who danced for CB and collabed with him, and Dinah and Normani from 5H, who were really big CB stans, all unfollowed him after the tweets

-Chris got really salty over unfollows and posted a screencap from his fan saying he has more hits than all of the girls combined
-He also wrote an essay on:
"Little girls" who were desperate for him to be on their records
Not caring about their opinions
Being "stood against" for "speaking the truth"
Running through the mud and "taking it like a man"
The girls not liking him anyways cause they'll always be 2nd to CHRIS BROWN THE GREATEST DOOR KICKER IN THE INDUSTRY!!!

Why didn't Kyrie speak up when she was getting dragged by social media? Why did he like that fake "end call" pic with the caption saying something like "when Kehlani tries to explain to Kyrie". And poor Kehlani with PND being the one to stirr this shit in the first place, but then creditting him as the one who saved her life because he was the one who supported her in the hospital :/

Kristen Stewart's New Film By Woody Allen To Open Cannes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cafe Society, the latest film by noted rapist auteur Woody Allen, has been announced to open the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

The movie stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg as starry-eyed lovers in the cafe society of 1930's Hollywood. Also appearing are Parker Posey, Steve Carrell, and, um, Blake Lively.

The last time that Allen opened Cannes, it was for Midnight in Paris, his last good film the last film of his to receive wide acclaim before shit hit the fan and his daughter publicly stated that he raped her when she was a child. Here's hoping that maybe Cafe Society will be the last Woody Allen film to open Cannes before people stop working with and enabling this disgusting pedophile.

ONTD, would you be willing to overlook the fact that a man allegedly repeatedly raped his young daughter if it meant that you could star in a high-profile movie and potentially win an Oscar?
