Russell series that was in development, and director Oliver Stone, recently outed as a serial groper himself,  has now announced that he refuses to work on the show Guantanamo, until the Weinstein company is removed

Tig Notaro Speaks Out On Sexual Abuse on Colbert



Starts at the 5:40 mark.

- The second season of her One Mississippi series deals a lot with harrassment

- Stephen asks if she thinks women are now more comfortable coming forward with their experiences now that it seems men are being taken down for their shit

- Tig says she hopes so but the issues need to continue being talked about, and that victims need to be believed. She says "stand up comedians" pretty pointedly when listing perpetrators

- Says the most important thing is to support victims, to encourage them to speak out and let them know you'll be there when they do


She doesn't call Louis CK out by name but she may have reasons for doing so. She's said back in August that she's ready to sever ties with him even though he EPs her show.

Amanda Seales Calls Out Miley Cyrus on Instagram: "Today in #morewhitebullshit..."

During Jimmy Fallon's "Miley Cyrus Week" on The Tonight Show (which has thankfully come to an end), the Malibu singer gave Cardi B's hit "Bodak Yellow" a pop remix.

However, after Miley Cyrus' quote in Billboard Magazine disregarding the rap and hip hop genres (to which she benefited off of during her Bangerz era), black comedian Amanda Seales was not having it.


Today in #morewhitebullshit. Bodak No-No, Miley. You lost all access to these 808s. 🙄 (and I don't care if it was for a game on a late night show, cuz I don't want ANY hip hop reference leaving her mouth at any point, at any time, and she was told the game before she played it. Bye bye. 👋🏾✌🏽)

This is the Miley comment that was referenced;
"I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much “Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock” -- I am so not that."

But no, I never left the band and we've never broken up. We support each other and one day it'll be so much fun to get back with the guys because I love them so much."

On why it took 2 years for the album roll out for Double Dutchess and if she was scared of this comeback: "I don't live in fear. It's not where I make decisions from. I know a lot of people love that urgency and the...you know...fear and doubt and it makes them excited. I'm happy that I was able to put something out that I'm proud of and that's done."

George Clooney Addresses Former ER Co-Star Vanessa Marquez's Sexual Harassment Accusations




Marquez took to Twitter in a series of tweets throughout the week, claiming Clooney was to blame for her being "blacklisted" from the popular drama series in 1995.

George Clooney is speaking out about a few of the accusations :

"I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted. I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn't affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn't."

In Russia, nobody's laughing at Iannucci's The Death of Stalin





The Death of Stalin, directed by Armando Iannucci (who has previously satirised both the UK and the US government) and based on the comic book of the same name, is a black comedy detailing the aftermath of the eponymous dictator's death. It stars Jason Isaacs, Steve Buscemi, Rupert Friend and Jeffrey Tambor among others.

It has received very favourable reviews in the UK but not so much in Russia. Nikolai Starikov, a fringe nationalist politician and a hardcore Stalin stan who has written a book glorifying him, has said “The death of any person is not a subject for comedy, and even more so the death of a head of state and a great leader," [...] “He was the leader of a state that was an ally of Great Britain during the war. Could you imagine the Russians making a film mocking the death of a British king?” He also described the film as an “unfriendly act by the British intellectual class”.

Other detractors include:

- Vzglyad, a pro-Kremlin newspaper, who have called the film “a nasty sendup by outsiders who know nothing of our history”
- An adviser to Russia’s culture ministry, Pavel Pozhigailo, said that the film is merely a planned provocation and an incitement to hatred.

However, Roman Volobuev, a Russian film-maker, has said that many Russian film & TV producers are huge fans of Armando's work, including one who has a portrait of Armando on his wall right next to one of Putin.

-Is possibly trying to be the new Elon Musk but unfortunately he's just Tom DeLonge of Blink-182.
-Something about "engineering the fabric of space-time" and being a "paradigm shifting global movement" but seems like it's all a cover to research more about aliens, which DeLonge is fucking obsessed with.
-Sorry mods, I can't summarize this. He's saying real words but I don't know WTF he's on about.

Martha Plimpton denounces victim blame-y NYT op-ed penned by actress Mayim Bialik

Bialik's op-ed basically recounts her experience in Hollywood as a non conventionally attractive teen and subsequently woman, while stating that her choices of not dieting, not getting plastic surgery or a personal trainer, as well as dressing modestly and not being flirtatious, were "protecting and wise". She ends the piece by saying that in an ideal world we women would be free to act however we like, but alas that's not the case and "change doesn't happen overnight".

Bob Weinstein Gets Emotional on "Depraved" Harvey, Saving the Company and His "Waking Nightmare"



- Bob agreed to a 45 minute phone interview with The Hollywood Reporter. He refused to talk about to talk about the claims that he and his board members had knowledge of  Harvey’s settlements with women  or the outcomes of films such as The Current War
- Apparently has a terrible relationship with his brother.
- Says Harvey should be kicked out of the Academy.
- The company will not be sold - but instead start afresh with a new name. Name hasn't been decided.
- Jay Z is not buying a stake in the company.

- One question that is on everybody’s mind: He is your brother, how in the world did you not know this was going on?

First of all, let me tell you something that people don't know. For the last five years, I've probably talked to my brother ten times on any personal level. That's the fracture that's gone on. Since Dimension started, we ran two separate companies. So many of the people that he does business with — actors, actresses — I've never even met and they know it. I wanted to lead a separate existence. So we were leading two separate divisions. For me, I thought he was literally just going out there cheating in a pervasive way. It wasn't like he even had a mistress. It was one after another and that I was aware of. But as far as being in a room and hearing the description in The New York Times? No way. No F-in way was I aware that that was the type of predator that he was. And the way he convinced people to do things? I thought they were all consensual situations.

I'll tell you what I did know. Harvey was a bully, Harvey was arrogant, he treated people like shit all the time. That I knew. And I had to clean up for so many of his employee messes. People that came in crying to my office: “Your brother said this, that and the other.” And I'd feel sick about it.
