DRAMA at Adult Swim as show with neo-nazi "alt-right" undertones gets axed



YIKES! Where to begin? Let's start here. Last August, Adult Swim began airing a show called "Million Dollar Explosion Presents: World Peace". The show, on it's surface, was like any other Adult Swim offering: messy, awkward and intentionally bizarre jump cuts, random subject matter, low budgets, odd characters and bizarre scenarios. Watch a little more closely and you will uncover an insidious undercurrent that shares similar humor markers with ""alt-right"" neo-nazi communities online.

Yesterday among mounting scrutiny, the show was cancelled. And despite their best efforts of trying to keep things quiet, things have exploded behind the scenes for Adult Swim

-Created by a Rhode Island based trio, who had an alt-right neo-nazi following online well before the show was picked up by adult swim
-Sketches on the show include: sending a woman into a glass table because she wasn't attractive enough, a black woman bragging about getting 40k+ in disability, plenty of homophobic remarks, and an instance of the creator in black face
-In Buzzfeed's report on Million Dollar Extreme's popularity with people who identify themselves as "alt-right" neo-nazis it was noted that Adult Swim's own standards department found coded messages, including swastikas, that the network removed before the show aired.
-Adult Swim senior vp Mike Lazzo supported the show and wanted to keep it, he found it funny

Also: did you know that Adult Swim has NEVER produced a show created by a woman? Out of all 47 shows currently airing or in development, not a single woman can be found on the creation side.

Gigi Hadid has Hashimoto's Disease, screamed at The Weeknd, and won a fashion award!

Gigi revealed in an interview this week that she was diagnosed two years ago with Hashimoto's Disease, a thyroid disease that causes fluctuation in metabolism and can lead to exhaustion.

“My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto’s disease. It’s a thyroid disease. It’s now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the [Victoria’s Secret] show I didn’t want to lose any more weight. I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.”

Zoe Saldana, Victoria Justice and Gina Rodriguez also all suffer from this disease.

I suppose you could argue her sudden weight loss over the past year could be attributed to the disease. That said, I feel like she's being overworked.

TJ Miller arrested for slapping an Uber driver


Several outlets including the New York Daily News are currently reporting that TJ Miller was arrested last night after leaving the GQ Men of the Year Party late last night (the above picture is Miller at said event).

Miller hired an Uber to take him home following the party and the two apparently got into a heated argument about Donald Trump during the ride which resulted in the actor slapping the driver when they reached their destination. The driver ended up making a citizen's arrest and then called the police who took away the visibly drunk actor. He has since been released without having to post bail.

No Beef Between Black Chyna & The Kardashians, Simple Legal Mistake


  • The Kardashians are doing damage control today after a story came out that the family was trying to block Blac Chyna from trademarking 'Angela Renee Kardashian' ahead of her wedding to Rob.

  • Kris Jenner has already reached out to Chyna and told her this was all a misunderstanding.

  • The family's patent's are litigated by a private firm who patrol documents using any form of 'Kardashian' and file countersuits against them in order to protect the Kardashian's best interest.

  • The source told Hollywood Life that the law firm had no clue who Angela Renee White (BC's maiden name) was and filed off their usual letter about anyone trying to use the family's name would damage the family's prestigious brand.

  • Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney had no such info of the trademark being blocked or the lawsuit.

#DumpStarWars: ‘Rogue One’ Star Riz Ahmed Says It's Not "Anti-Trump"



Apparently, there's a #DumpStarWars hashtag trending on Twitter, and Trump supporters are telling people to boycott the movie because it's sending an Anti-Trump message. (K, have they never watched a Star Wars movie in their life?)

“Rogue One” actor Riz Ahmed said the filmmakers didn’t inject anti-Donald Trump positions or any other political messages into the new “Star Wars” movie, because doing so would be “petty and small-minded.”

“It is absolutely to be expected that people will project their anxieties and concerns … onto art. It’s also the role of art to reflect the times we live in. But this film wasn’t made to speak to this particular moment. This is a film that was written years ago, that was filmed over a year-and-a-half ago,” the British actor and “The Night Of” star continued.

He also added that he hopes the movie continues to resonate over time and that a film as big as Star Wars will bring people together instead of continuing to divide them.

The #DumpStarWars hashtag started after a Trump supporter saw "Rogue One" writers Chris Weitz and Gary Whittas change their Twitter avatars to a logo of the Rebel Alliance with a safety pin along with tweets like this from Chris Weitz (which is now deleted but I found a screenshot):

JDM Agrees Negan Talks Too Much, Confirms Hilarie is Wifey

Morgan stopped by "Popcorn with Peter Travers" to talk The Walking Dead




  • The cast was hostile towards him at first: "Me coming in initially was a shock to the system, not noly for the show but for some of the castmates who are so close to each other, and they're gonna lose one or two of their own." Later when asked if they blamed him, he said "Yeah, it's not the writers, or the creators of the comic, it was somehow put on me, that I was the bad guy, the shithead as it were. And it took a bit of time of me being on set and joking around in between takes, but it worked out great and I'm really close with them now and I've been accepted to be part of the family. For the most part."

  • He thinks Negan talks too much: "My original script (season 6 finale) was just a 17 page monologue. They didn't send me the whole script, it was literally 17 pages of Negan talking. And I was like 'Oh my God, this has gotta get better.' And I'll be damned, I came back to do season 7 and every script, if Negan's in it he's doing all the talking...Negan uses this world as his stage and Shakespearean is a very apt term for him because he does take center stage and loves being the center of attention and so his monologues, a lot of them are him putting on a show for Rick and the survivors. I think behind closed doors hopefully he's a little bit quieter but certainly when he's trying to make a point he belabors that into some kind of monologue or show-stopping routine. As an actor who gets the script at the last second I'd prefer he toned it down word wise. What happened to 'it's all in the eyes'?! You know how many times I tell my writers I don't need it to be 20 pages of monologue! But I think that's part of the joy of this character. This verbal diarrhea he has. It's all going somewhere, you just have to pay attention."

  • Hilarie is his wife whether they're married or not, deal with it: "I'm not charming in real life. I'm moody. Horrible. All those things. My wife will tell you that there is no charm, no. It's miserable." And later: "I've gotten some mail with sexual undertones. Gag me, spank me, bring Lucille. It's like, whoa. It's a lot, man! It's a special pile I keep away from my wife."

  • Says if he wanted people to get to know his work, the top 3 he'd recommend are: Texas Killing Fields, The Watchmen, and Grey's Anatomy.

Shameless season 8 delayed as Emmy Rossum seeks equal pay and more



Rossum’s camp is arguing that the actress should be paid more than Macy to make up for the seven seasons in which she earned considerably less than the veteran actor.

Macy recently renegotiated his deal and scored a raise that sources say puts his salary in the upper echelon of cable dramas.

If Rossum closes her deal, producer WBTV then will renegotiate with the remainder of the cast, including Jeremy Allen White (Lip), Cameron Monaghan (Ian) and Steve Howey (Kevin). If she can't close a deal, Showtime could choose to renew the show without her or cancel it.
