Channel 4's 'My Week as a Muslim' Draws Backlash for Brownface




- channel 4 is airing a documentary following a white british woman using prosthetics and having her skin colour altered to see what life is like as a pakistani muslim woman in manchester
- many people criticised the use of brownface and pointed out that if you want to document islamophobia you could talk to actual muslims
- exec producer fozia khan said in defense: "the programme allowed Katie to meaningfully walk in the shoes of someone from a different background and to experience what it is like to be part of the British Pakistani Muslim community rather than observe it as an outsider"

Chiwetel Ejiofor to star in, write and direct film adaptation of 'The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

Production for the film has started in Malawi. It is based on a Ted talk + book by William Kamkwamba. In 2001, William's community was hard hit by famine. Like most in the village William's family relied on farming to survive and as a source of income.  William (who was 14 at the time) had to drop out of school, but kept going to the library to read and borrow books.

He came across a book called "Using Energy" which had wind turbines on its cover and because he is better than all of us he thought "I can do that!". He went on to build a windmill that could pump water and generate electricity - using parts he gathered around including a bicyle parts, thereby saving his family and community from the famine. The story of his achievement went from local Malawian newspapers to American blogs and soon he was being flown to Tanzania to deliver TED talks and he wrote a book.

William has since gone on to earn a degree from Dartmouth, a built another windmill and launched countless community projects.



The film stars newcomer Maxwell Simba as William Kamkwamba, Chiwetel Ejiofor as his father Trywell, Noma Dumezweni (Hermione in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) as Edith Sikelo, the librarian who helped bring William’s story to public attention, Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey -The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) as Chief Wimbe, and Aissa Maiga (Anything for Alice) as William's mother, Agnes.

Woody Allen's new film A Rainy Day in New York is about exactly what you think


Woody Allen's new film is A Rainy Day in New York, a script he wrote 15 years ago. It stars Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, Timothée Chalamet, Jude Law, Suki Waterhouse, Rebecca Hall, Liev Schreiber, Diego Luna, and Kelly Rohrbach.

Despite earlier reports that the film centers around "young love" and set photos showing Selena and Timothée kissing, new plot details have emerged that indicate the main character is probably Jude Law playing a typical Woody Allen self-insert who “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.”

Apparently, Rebecca Hall's character accuses Jude (44) of sleeping with "15-year old concubine" Elle Fanning (19 irl). Then, Elle's character insists she is actually 21 and gets mad at Jude...for cheating on her! She asks him, “Were all these women for pleasure, or were you researching a project?”

Jessicka Addams of Jack Off Jill accuses ex Twiggy Ramirez of rape and abuse

I have lived with the overwhelming shame and guilt of being raped for well over 20 years now. Like many survivors, I...

Posted by Jessicka Addams on Friday, October 20, 2017


Jessicka Addams told the story of her relationship with Jeordie White (later re-styled as Twiggy Ramirez, bass player for Marilyn Manson) in this Facebook post. They got together when she was 19.

If you don't feel like you're in the headspace to read a raw account of physical and mental abuse, please do not click on this.

Source

I had a huge crush on Twiggy when I was a teenager, thought his relationship with Jessicka was ~goals~ and always assumed she was the one who masterminded his style change, not that he straight up ripped her off. This is heartbreaking and so is the asshole reaction from the remaining Marilyn Manson stans, but it's not as if anyone with critical thinking skills still listen to this band.

Over 30 Women Accuse Writer/Director James Toback of Sexual Harassment



James Toback is not a household name. He most recently made a sympathetic documentary about Mike Tyson and a documentary about funding in Hollywood that featured Jessica Chastain, someone he said he has known for years. Before that, he made a bunch of movies not many people have seen. But he still managed to use his tenuous connections to hit on young women (some of them underage). He would scope out girls while standing in line in the deli or walking down the street and tell them he was a movie director casting unknowns for his next movie. No one recognized his credits, so he’d tell them he directed Robert Downey Jr in three unknown films, that he “made” him. If they didn’t believe him, he would often carry a magazine with an article about him or one of his DVDs. Then, in later meetings, he would push them to tell him how far they would go sexually to get the role, and how far they would go on screen. In one of his movies, it opens with Neve Campbell masturbating with a handheld shower head for five minutes.

Collapse )

Several of the women interviewed by the LA Times said they quit acting after their encounters with Toback. It wasn’t a secret in Hollywood that he was a creep. Spy Magazine wrote about it in the late ‘80s and so did Gawker in more recent years. Women would share there experiences with each other and say, “Oh no, you got Tobacked,” according to drama teacher, playwright, and actor Karen Sklaire.

Who’s going to be exposed next?

Will "Haters Back Off" season 3 happen? Angela Kinsey is definitely ready


  • Angela Kinsey had no idea who Miranda Sings was before doing Haters Back Off.

  • Her agent sent her the script of the pilot and she loved it. She thought it was really well-written and really funny and weird, and those are two of her favorite things.

  • Kinsey hopes that Haters Back Off comes back for a third season because she has some ideas for Bethany, her character on the show, which she already shared with Colleen Ballinger, co-creator and star of the show.


source

ONTD, have you already watched season 2 of Haters Back Off? [spoilers]As much as Miranda can stress me out sometimes, it was heartbreaking seeing her dad yelling at her and pretty much telling her that she's worthless. Also, I can't believe he sold her out; I wasn't expecting to see Colleen at the end. And Emily remains the best.

5th Polanski Victim Comes Forward: “I was 10 yrs old”



The article details that in 1975, Polanski invited Marianne Barnard and her mother to a beach to photograph the then 10 year old girl in a bikini and furs.

He then kept pushing for Barnard to take off more and more of her clothing for the photos. Polanski (allegedly) molested her after her mother left the shoot for some time.

This POS. I hope he gets his just deserts and rots in prison for the rest of his sordid life - his victims have certainly waited long enough for justice to be served

Kevin Smith to donate residuals and $2000 a month to 'Women in Film' non-profit






-Kevin Smith's career was launched by Miraxmax through 'Clerks' (1994), and HW financed his work for the next 14 years.
-Talking on his 'Hollywood Babble-On' podcast, Smith said he would be donating all residuals from his numerous films made under Miramax and disgraced 'alleged' sexual abuser, sex pest, bully, potted plant defacer and waste of human skin Harvey Weinstein to non-profit org 'Women in Film', advocating for gender parity in the film industry.
-He acknowledged it is historically more difficult for women to get films financed/made, and knows that even residuals can't be enough reparation, so he will also donate $2000 a month to 'Women in Film' for the remainder of his life. (article states this is in the eventuality of TWC or Miramax being shut down, but in the Podcast he says that he is doing this as well as residuals).

Who Went Home on 'Bromans' Episode VI? ⚔️



An informal poll of gay Twitter found that the internet thinks Bromans star Tom Trotter is the best looking lad on the show. Tom even retweeted the poll, obviously proud of the Attention.m4a.

ITV2's hit, saucy series challenges 8 sexy couples to live as if in ancient Roman times, as the boys duke it out to see who will be crowned Britain's Next Broman Superstar™.

Things in Ancient Rome haven't cooled down since last week's drama filled episode. Bromances have been challenged and broken as the lads' strength and wits are put to the test. This week, the citizens of Rome were asked to collect their wee to wash the Emperor's laundry. Yes. You read that correctly. Apparently, people in ancient times used urine as soap. Go figure. The couples took their wee collections and washed up, having a good ol' fashion pee fight along the way.

Back in the colosseum, the lads were blind folded and ask to knock each other about with giant mallets (kinky!). Then the ladies were suspended above the cesspits as the lad-iators competed to see who could hold them up the longest.

Five couples remain, with only one more banishment before the Emperor's Games™ to determine who is fit to continue wearing their leather man-skirt. The epic saga continues Thursday on ITV2.

Scary Literary Fiction For People Who Hate Horror



At the source, there are 15 titles of spooky literary fiction. Source writes, "Some of the books below are existentially disturbing, some morally frightening, some simply sickening [...] but none are typical horror novels..."

Here are 5 of those books:

Roberto Bolaño, 2666
3115359
Three academics on the trail of a reclusive German author; a New York reporter on his first Mexican assignment; a widowed philosopher; a police detective in love with an elusive older woman—these are among the searchers drawn to the border city of Santa Teresa, where over the course of a decade hundreds of women have disappeared.

Published posthumously, 2666 is, in the words of La Vanguardia, “not just the great Spanish-language novel of this decade, but one of the cornerstones that define an entire literature.”

Alyssa Milano tweets #JusticeForJane, a undocumented teen not allowed to have an abortion by US gov



After helping to make #MeToo trend last week in response to Harvey Weinstein's decades of sexual abuse being exposed, Alyssa Milano is now speaking out for a pregnant 17 year old undocumented teen who wants to get an abortion but is being prevented by the US Government.

Jane Doe crossed the border on September 11th (to get away from abusive parents) and was taken into custody. Since discovering she was pregnant, she has not been allowed by the Office of Refugee Resettlement in Texas to get an abortion (thanks to policies changed by Trump). On 10/18 a judge ordered the US Government to "promptly" allow Jane to get the procedure. A new court order, sought by gremlin Jeff Sessions, has allowed the ORR time to delay. Texas law does not allow abortions past 20 weeks, since Jane is almost 16 weeks they are clearly trying to buy time until it's too late.

Alyssa also recently went on Good Morning America to talk about sexual assault and the #MeToo movement started by Tarana Burke.

This has culminated in Justin headlining the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show despite exposing Janet Jackson's nipple in the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime Show, which led to Janet being banned from future halftime shows, the Grammys, MTV, and radio for several years. Justin has also thrown other under the bus like his NSYNC bandmates and Britney Spears.
