badthingsgood-578x506.jpg

Shaun White, the face of the winter Olympics in the US and who won 2 gold medals is being sued. By his former drummer from his band called Bad Things. The lawsuit alleges that he harassed her the whole time she was with his band since 2008 till he fired her in 2014. Now she is suing him and exposing him for the filth that he is on TMZ and in court. He ofcource is denying it all but she has pretty good receipts.

Details of the case are pretty gross.
[Spoiler (click to open)]

- Among the allegations, Zawaideh claims White sent her sexually explicit and graphic images of "engorged and erect penises" and forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos "including videos sexualizing human fecal matter."
- One of the videos Zawaideh claims she was forced to watch was a couple killing a bear and then having sex on top of it.
- stopped paying her since he felt 'she didn't need the money'
- before firing her, White stuck his hand down the front of his pants and attempted to make her smell it
 - also claimed that she was subject to his "darker, misogynistic personality," and text messages that TMZ obtained and published corroborate Zawaideh's claim that White had demanded she cut her hair and wear more revealing outfits

can see the nasty texts he sent her on deadspin

Autostraddle Apologizes for Favorably Reviewing the ‘Animated Queer Taco’ in Sausage Party





Autostraddle, an online magazine for LGBTQ women, published a review that praised Salma Hayek's portrayal of Teresa del Taco in the movie "Sausage Party."

Teresa is also devout and feels pressure to hide her sexual urges towards girl foodstuffs from those around her and the powers-that-be. Alone with her truth, Teresa must mask her feelings towards Brenda, in a candid portrayal of a queer female character not oft seen in massive summer blockbusters. Furthermore, Teresa del Taco’s queerness isn’t played for laughs. Sure, she’s a lesbian taco. But, beyond that, Teresa is just one of the gang.

Autostraddle later removed the review and posted an apology on their site.

After we published the review, we heard from Latinx readers who believe the portrayal of Salma Hayek’s taco was racist and that it reinforced harmful stereotypes. We heard from readers who were upset that we labeled the taco a lesbian when it seems more likely that she was bisexual. We heard from readers who questioned the consent of the sexual encounter between the taco and the hot dog bun. We heard from readers who found the taco to be a damaging portrayal of a predatory queer woman.

The original review can still be read on AfterEllen's website, however.

Jennifer Lopez beats Britney Spears by overtaking her Vegas show record



Oops, she did it again! Jennifer Lopez has just demolished Britney Spears' record for one-night sales. Jennifer Lopez's show hit $1 million in box office sales in a single night, becoming the first show at Planet Hollywood to top the one-night record. The record for biggest single-night box office sales was previously held by Britney Spears, but Jennifer Lopez can now safely claim that record. Marc Anthony and his wife attended Jennifer's show to help her celebrate her record-breaking night. Jennifer Lopez is now considered to be one of Vegas' biggest stars, placing her in direct competition with reigning Vegas queen Celine Dion.

"Arrival" movie poster moves Shanghai building into Hong Kong, makes people go WTF?





-This poster for Dennis Villenueve's movie Arrival, starring Isla Fisher and Hawkeye, depicts the skyline of Hong Kong, except they also included the Oriental Pearl Tower (in the foreground), a TV tower located in Shanghai’s Pudong district.

-1,500 had left comments on the film’s official Facebook page, with hashtags such as #hongkongisnotchina, #WhyOrientalPearlTowerHere and other angry criticisms. “Just don’t promote your movie in HK [Hong Kong] if you don’t respect HKers [Hongkongers],” wrote Allan Chan. “Fire the person in charge of your marketing design,” wrote Douglas Black.

-Horace Chin Wan-kan, who is running in the upcoming Legislative Council election, commented: “The movie adaptation of the sci-fi novel ‘Arrival’, which obtained the Nebula Award, [has] decent director Denis Villeneuve and actors Amy Adams [and] Jeremy Renner. However, everything is ruined by this improper poster.”

This is a movie based on a really good short story which was all about language and communication and life and all that jazz, but the Arabic writing in the trailer is also basically gibberish. Oops.

- Police have concluded their investigations, it will soon be known whether the Americans will be formally charged of any crime

UPDATE

Former Miss Great Britain Gets In Fight With Her Replacement On National TV

There's been drama in the British press today. Zara Holland, who won Miss Great Britain only to later lose her title due to her behavior on a reality show, appeared on British talk show Loose Women today to talk about it, where she came face to face with her replacement, the runner up of the competition.


  • Miss Great Britain organizers were unhappy with the way she conducted herself on reality show Love Island, where she had sex on TV after getting drunk one night, so they stripped her of her title and replaced her with the runner up.

  • She told the new girl, "You didn't win the title. In my opinion, if it was the other way around, I would stand up for women."

  • Deone responded: "If I didn't take it, third or fourth would have taken it instead. It was my dream as well - you gave it up."

  • Zara continued to talk about how she was the best they'll ever have etc.

President of International Gymnastics Federation makes racist comments about Chinese & Japanese






  • Chinese gymnastics did not live up to expectations at the Olympics. On both the mens' and womens' side, none of their gymnasts got any indiviual medals. China came home with two medals, bronze in both team finals.

  • President of the International Federation of Gymnastics (FIG), Bruno Grandi, has said the Chinese did not succeed due to their "robotic" style.

  • Grandi compared the Chinese team to the dominant Japanese men's gymnastics team. Instead of creditting Japenese culture, tradition, gymnasts, or adaptation to the code of points, Grandi says that their success is based on making their routines more "westernized."

  • "They (Japan) have improved the construction of their exercises, leaving behind Eastern-style choreographies to move towards the West, that is to say more harmony, imagination, creativity. I'm not criticising Japanese culture, which is huge, but they have built a nice crowd-pleasing routine for the spectators. They've moved away from tradition, and the Chinese should do the same. If they stay like they are, they are robots. They are perfect on geometric lines, but eurythmy does not exist."

Source: Twitter

This is infuriating... Bruno Grandi has always been trash, but to say something this blatantly racist and western-centric... Like wow the west is so much more creative and the only way you can win is to make your routines more westernized!!! And, China and Japan, you've innovated endless skills in this sport, but the only reason for your wins or losses are your ability to mimic the great, imaginative west!!!

Critics Choice Movie Awards slip further into irrelevancy with mid-December ceremony




-- The Broadcast Film Critics Assocation today announced that their annual awards ceremony will be held over a full month earlier than normal, on December 11, with nominations announced 10 days earlier on December 1.
-- The groups president is optimistic films will get seen in time while in the same breath says two late-released films may become a problem (that number will go up).
-- The group is notorious for holding terrible ceremonies and pretending they have influence with their nominations being nothing but a copy/paste of their current Oscar predictions.
-- Last year Star Wars was added to the Best Picture list AFTER nominations were announced because members didn't get a chance to see it in time. Some members quit after finally realizing what a joke the group was.
-- Usually funny TJ Miller will be back for another terrible hosting job.

Updated: Ryan Lochte &Jimmy Feigen have been indicted for falsely reporting a crime




-

ICYMI: 4 American swimmers took a cab from a party and stopped at a gas station to pee. They peed on the garden and walls, trashed the place and then tried to leave. The cab driver said he would wait for police as directed by the security guard, the athletes then started cursing and screaming and slammed the cab's door. Bentz picked up a 20 and tried to pay people off with it in a sarcastic voice as if it was a lot of money. The security guard and another worker showed them their credentials and Lochte and Feigen tried to run without paying for damages or the cab fare. Security signed 'stop' and they came back very aggressively. Security pulled his (legal, registered) gun and told them all to sit down (they can be seen sitting in a video), and then immediately put his gun away. They found someone to help translate and the athletes agreed to pay 50 dollars and left.


- Then they made up a story about being robbed at gun point in Rio - police is still investigating why they would do this, but one of the theories is that they were hooking up with women at a party and wanted to hide it from one of their girlfriends (they only arrived at the Olympic Village at 7am).

- Ryan Lochte and James Feigen were the ones who filed the police report about the made-up robbery, although all 4 gave the police versions of the robbery story. Still, the other 2 swimmers were being treated as witnesses. They eventually confirmed that the police's findings were the truth, and not the story about the robbery. There is video evidence of everything and plenty of testimonies from witnesses.

- Lochte is out of the country but Feigen is still here. Both are being formally charged with the crime of filing a false police report.

- Meanwhile Bentz and Conger, who spent the afternoon deposing at the police station, were booed by a crowd of Brazilians when they left. Brazilians yelled "SHAME", "LIARS", "APOLOGIZE". One managed to briefly pull a swimmer's ear.

Lochte Up Abroad: Gunnar Bentz and Jack Congler cleared by Brazilian judge to leave Brazil



- After they spent the afternoon deposing before police and confessed that the robbery story was a lie, Rio police and a Brazilian judge returned their passports and they are now free to leave the country

- Bentz and Congler did NOT file a false police report, unlike Ryan Lochte and James Feigen, who DID and have been formally INDICTED. None were indicted for the crime of damaging private property, as the gas station owner has so far declined to press charges

- Bentz and Congler left the police station under the boos of several pissed off Brazilians, who screamed "SHAME", "LIARS", APOLOGIZE" in a veritable Walk of Shame moment. You can watch the video HERE (another angle below)

Nate Parker: The Limits of Hollywood Damage Control

New details around actor and director Nate Parker’s involvement in a 1999 rape case shed a harsh light on the Hollywood apparatus that attempts to soften past transgressions in the name of art, awards, and, above all, profits.




Article highlights the words used by Deadline and Variety on their stories about Nate Parker and how they were used to push a narrative to help the movie during awards season:

"Parker repeatedly emphasizes just how difficult the memory was; in both tellings, he pauses as he recounts the incident. In Deadline: “I stand here, a 36-year-old man, 17 years removed from one of the most painful … [he wells up at the memory] moment in my life. In Variety: “The reality is” — he took a long silence — “I can’t relive 17 years ago. All I can do is be the best man I can be now.” Apart from the repeated emphasis on “17 years ago,” which works to distance him from the allegations, the accounting of the scene can either be read as an accounting of genuine emotion or, less generously, as stage direction."

Anne Helen even credits Oh No They Didn’t in breaking the story about the involvement of Nate Parker in a rape case:

"No trade or mainstream press around the debut of Birth of a Nation included the details of the rape allegations and trial that spanned Parker’s sophomore and junior years at Penn State, from 1999 to 2001. Instead, details of the event resurfaced the way scandal so often does: through the gossip press, where the Cosby allegations also percolated for years. Here they arrived through Oh No They Didn’t, a popular user-run-and-vetted site and one of the most influential blogs to emerge and challenge the mainstream publicity apparatus in the mid-2000s."
