ONTD Original: 25 ALLEGED Domestic Abusers Who Got Away With it (by Suffering no Career Backlash)

In the light of recent events, some of us might naively wonder whether the domestic abuse allegations will hurt Johnny Depp's career.

[Spoiler (click to open)]They won't.

Hollywood, being the sausage fest that we all know and love, likes to turn a blind eye to anything that might interfere with the cash flow.

Let's drink some tea, shall we?

Kate Beckinsale talks about sexism in Hollywood

On Graham Norton, Kate recalled how director Michael Bay seemed to be more focused on his distaste for her looks than on her acting while working together on Pearl Harbor.

"I don't think I fitted the type of actress Michael Bay the director had met before, I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren't bigger than my head and I wasn't blonde. I'd just had my daughter and had lost weight, but was told that if I got the part, I'd have to work out. And I just didn't understand why a 1940s nurse would do that."

"And then, when we were promoting the film, Michael was asked why he had chosen Ben [Affleck] and Josh [Hartnett], and he said, 'I have worked with Ben before and I love him, and Josh is so manly and a wonderful actor'. Then when he was asked about me, he'd say, 'Kate wasn't so attractive that she would alienate the female audience.' He kept saying it everywhere we went, and we went to a lot of places."

Studio Cancels Contract With DC Comics Artist Over Rape Comments

DC Comics freelance artist, Allan Goldman, who co-created the series Nox for Space Goat Productions and worked on Superman, Action Comics, Teen Titans, Countdown and Future’s End for DC Comics, posted on his Facebook, regarding the rape of a 16 year old by 30 men:

"What happens if the 30 rapists claimed they are women?

According to the leftist gender ideology, a person is what you feel, and your biology does not matter. The society is obliged to accept this decision, if not is fascism!

How the Court will hear case of a woman who was raped by 30 other women?

I'm curious now."

Chiaroscuro Studios, which represented Goldman with the American publishers have terminated their arrangement with him, saying “We decided to terminate the relationship with artists not aligned with values that, for us, are absolutely non-negotiable”.

He has since deleted the post.

Comedian W. Kamau Bell discusses hipsters, asks what gentrification & Michael Jackson have in common

Comedian W. Kamau Bell tackles the hipster invasion and gentrification in Portland, OR in the latest episode of his CNN show "United Shades of America." In the show, Bell looks at how the increasing presence of white hipsters in Portland has pushed out the black residents in the city. He reveals that Portland, which is considered a progressive major city, is 76% white, which means that Portland is whiter than the whole of the United States, which is 72% white.

During the show, he also talks to hipsters about the word "hipster" and how hipsters consider the word to be a slur.

He also visits one of the businesses that has opened up in Portland in recent years, a place where one can go cuddle with a professional cuddler.

"As originator of the original: Saw test screening of new movie.

As one of millions of man-fans and Ray Stantz, I'm paying to see that and bringing all my friends!"

The Invisible Majority: Twitter support For Amber Heard Exceeds Abusers Defenders

Basically more people are supporting Amber on Twitter, but it's typically non-celebs/regular folks, or folks with not enough cloud.

Statistics show that 1.8 million people have seen tweets with the #ImWithAmber hashtag, compared to the over 432,000 #ImWithJohnny hashtags.

This makes my soul smile a bit.

You should read the full article at the source. Tweets are embedded throughout.

Let's retweet them all, and get her hashtag trending worldwide.



Jerry O'Connell says he wouldn't allow a male nanny to take care of his kids

Jerry O'Connell, who plays a male nanny ("manny") in the show Mistresses says he wouldn't be comfortable with the idea of a man taking care of his kids in real life.

"I'm not sure if given the chance to hire myself as a manny in my family, I don't think I would allow that to happen. I'm sorry if that's closed-minded of me. I just wouldn't allow that — I wouldn't be comfortable with that. I would explain to my wife and to my children that I was not comfortable with a manny around."

Nick Jonas unsuccessfully tries to hit on women

Nick Jonas revealed that he tries to hit on girls online all the time, but he's not getting love back. Guess they don't want no scrubs sitting in the passenger's side of Demi Lovato's ride (a gently used Honda Civic).

In the Sunday Times Nick is quoted as saying, "It's so true. I'm shameless about it. [I get] a lot of no responses, actually. I imagine an attractive girl gets direct messages all the time, so it's kind of played out."

(A lot of these articles also mention how he dated Lily Collins for some reason).

Four of Keira Knightley's former directors call bullshit on John Carney

ICYMI Irish director John Carney who directed Keira Knightley in Begin Again, but who you probably know best from the movie Once, went on a multi interview tirade during promo for his new movie where he said Knightley was a bad actress (while praising ADAM LEVINE???) and also referring to her repeatedly as a model (?)

Check out the ONTD post on it here.

Disney's first lesbian couple?

The newest Finding Dory trailer came out and people were quick to point out at around 1:05 two women can be seen standing next to eachother. #Representation (The "Poor baby, let me get that for you" scene.)

Facebook is already in an uproar, calling it offensive to assume two women who are out in public together are lesbians, and calling for Disney Pixar to stop "sexualizing" children's movies. Others are supportive of the "representation."

ONTD will this be the quality representation we've all been searching for? Do you think it is sexist for the women to have love interests at all? Should one of them be eliminated via post production so that disney stops perpetuating the harmful stereotype that women can have meaningful loving relationships with other women and instead can give a more #progressive message that women can be single?


Johnny Depp Was Blackmailed by Amber Heard

Acdg. to Johnny's friend Doug Stanhope

Comedian Doug Stanhope is a friend of Johnny Depp and has written an op-ed for The Wrap defending the actor:

ON JOHNNY & AMBER'S RELATIONSHIP: "We’d watched it build like this since before they were married. We’d watched her manipulate and f— with him for years. We have watched Amber Heard f— with him at his weakest — or watched him at his weakest from being f—ed with — for the entire time we’ve known him."

AMBER'S ALLEGED PLAN: "Bingo and I were at Johnny’s house for most of that Saturday until just before the alleged assault. We assumed initially that his dour mood was because of his mother’s death the day before. But he opened up in the most vulnerable of ways that it was not only his mother, but that Amber was now going to leave him, threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms. Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified."

JONHNNY'S REACTION: "He still pronounced his love for Amber but was presciently aware that she was going to pull off some kind of ruse to f— him over. He hadn’t slept in days with anxiety. You’d call him a paranoid if you didn’t know better."

WHY HE CAME FORWARD: "I realized not saying s— to defend him is a far worse crime of ego; to leave a friend hanging so you don’t look like a suck-up. I — and the “we” that were there — aren’t suck-ups or apologists. We were witnesses. I didn’t jump into the fray because I was weak; it was because I didn’t want to look like a name-dropper. I’ll name-drop now. Johnny Depp is my friend."

BOTTOMLINE: "Johnny doesn’t abuse anyone. And he told me that day ahead of time that she’d pull some kind of s— like this. Johnny Depp got used, manipulated, set up and made to look like an a–hole. And he saw it coming and didn’t or couldn’t do anything to stop it."

If you know more, tell me in the comments and I'll be sure to add it to the post. I figured we could use some lifting up, since a lot of support is being thrown in Johnny's way, and most of us have been upset about it. The fact that so few have spoken out in support of Amber, is very telling of a lot of things. But hey the weekend is over, maybe the so called feminists will pop up and say something (but I'm not holding my breath). Having said all of that, bless Amanda de Cadente for being so forward in her support. If Amber's support system is as good and as loyal as she is, then that's really good for Amber.

Disney panics over Rogue One, orders reshoots.

The article pretty much says this:

- Executives at Disney aren't thrilled with the movie and have ordered reshoots to be done in July for about 4 weeks.
- Filmmaking team and studio expected additioning shooting. Actors were aware it may happen.
- The bar is set pretty high because of how well The Force Awakens did so they want Rogue One to be the best it can possibly be.

Some places I've read said this is all just a rumor while others say it isn't.
