"Reconsidering 'GYPSY' As an Ethnic Slur As the DC Character Comes to the CW"


Sleepy Hollow's actress Jessica Camacho is scheduled to debut as the DC Comics character Gypsy in the January 31 episode of the CW's The Flash, but for some people her arrival will come with some unwanted connotations.

The term "Gypsy" itself is for many people a derogatory word with stereotypical associations and is considered a racial slur against Romani people.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali assaulted on the sets of his new movie Rani Padmavati


Famous director, SLB, who has directed popular movies like Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani was attacked by members of a fringe right-wing group called Karni Sena. The attack happened on the sets of his new movie Rani Padmavati, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The movie is supposed to be on the story of Rani Padmavati (Deepika) who was a Rajput princess coveted by Alauddin Khilji, the famous military general and ruler of Delhi Sultanate dynasty. According to the story based on Malik Mohamed Jayasi's medieval poem Padmavat, Khilji (to be played by Ranveer Singh) defeated the husband of Padmavati (Shahid Kapoor) and when they heard of the loss suffered by their king, the Rajput women led by Padmavati, to protect their honor, committed jauhar (self-immolation). However this story has been communalized by many right-wing Hindu individuals and groups and has now crossed over from fiction to fact. Karni Sena, which is supposedly a Rajput-interest group think (unfortunately they are not alone; many believe in this completely) this is real history and have vandalized the sets of the movie and attacked the filmmaker. In a video taken by one of the goons, we can see Bhansali being beaten, slapped, shoved and his hair being pulled. The reason for this attack is an unsubstantiated rumor that there is a dream sequence depicting intimate scenes between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji which has since been denied by the production house. Supporters and members of the party claim that this scene is an insult to the memory of Padmavati and claim this is historical distortion (even though legitimate historians have denied claims of the existence of this story).

Bhansali has not filed a complaint yet and 5 people who were held for vandalism were released on bail on Saturday. He has stopped the shoot and has left Jaipur, Rajasthan where the assualt took place on Friday.
Bollywood has come to the support of SLB and the team of Rani Padmavati. Anurag Kashyap (who is getting a lot of hate right now for rightly calling out right wing Hindus), Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Deepika, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Rishi Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Mahesh Bhatt, Alia Bhatt and Hrithik Roshan are among some of the people who have spoken out. Attaching a few tweets:

It is not even shocking. I expect no justice to be served in this country. Repeated and emboldened attacks by various right wing Hindu outfits have been a regular feature since the election of the present ruling party which provides them impunity.

Trump TV is ushered in as early trends emerge for 2017 TV pilot season



*36 pilots have already been ordered for 2017 season, with comedies and dramas about even and 4 shows given straight to series orders. The orders show some trends emerging.

*Appeal to Trump America: networks are ordering shows they feel will capture viewers who think we aren't being led to the end of days by a deranged Cheeto. Examples include military dramas and comedies themed around red states or political outsiders winning office.

*Appeal to people who wish they could get the hell off the planet before it explodes. Space shows are the new time travel shows, with sci-fi offerings from Fox, NBC, and CBS.

*And more of the same, family comedies, procedurals, and probably eventually 10 new shows about various departments in the city of Chicago.

*Some of the high profile reboots and spinoffs are missing from the order slate so far, so Grandma might have to wait to see that Big Bang Theory spinoff.

Lady Gaga on Super Bowl: Expect a performance that spans my career



Fans need not worry, Lady Gaga has dispelled the fear of a "Joannefest" halftime performance. She says next week's Super Bowl Halftime show will span her entire career so far. She'll play enough of the early hits to remind audiences why she was once (not long ago) the brightest star in the pop galaxy.

Gaga called into Houston's Mix 62.5 station for a brief chat about the February 5th show,

"We were [rehearsing] in the tent for about a week and a half, then we had to move to bigger studios in Hollywood where we are working on the rest of the show. And then we will send that equipment to Houston where we will finish rehearsals... Fans can expect a performance that spans my career so far... I appreciate everyone that has supported me over the years and that still supports my music and my shows. I can't wait to do a great show for the world!"

28 Books With Shocking Plot Twists That Still Keep Us Up at Night

Kite-Runner-Khaled-Hosseini

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini



About: Amir is the son of a wealthy Kabul merchant, a member of the ruling caste of Pashtuns. Hassan, his servant and constant companion, is a Hazara, a despised and impoverished caste. Their uncommon bond is torn by Amir's choice to abandon his friend amidst the increasing ethnic, religious, and political tensions of the dying years of the Afghan monarchy, wrenching them far apart. But so strong is the bond between the two boys that Amir journeys back to a distant world, to try to right past wrongs against the only true friend he ever had.

The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

A sweeping story of family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of the history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years, The Kite Runner is an unusual and powerful novel that has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic.
