The 13 Creepiest Fictional Characters Of All Time

american

Patrick Bateman from 'American Psycho'



About: As written by Ellis, Bateman is the ultimate stereotype of yuppie greed: rich, shallow, and addicted to sex, drugs, and conspicuous consumption. All of his friends look alike to him, to the point that he often confuses one for another; they often confuse him for other people as well. Bateman takes delight in obsessively detailing virtually every single feature of his designer clothes, workout routine, business cards, alcoholic drinks, elaborate high-end stereo, and home theater sound system. He is engaged to an equally rich, shallow woman named Evelyn Richards. He has a mistress on the side (the fiancée of a gay colleague he despises) and has regular liaisons with prostitutes and women he encounters at clubs, many of whom end up being his victims. The one woman (and possibly the one person) in his life he has anything approaching feelings for is his secretary, Jean. She is the only person in his life who is not completely shallow, so he cannot bring himself to seduce, rape, or kill her. He casually acknowledges her as "Jean, my secretary who is in love with me" and introduces her in the narration as someone whom he "will probably end up married to someday".

Despite his affluence and high social status, Bateman is wracked by feelings of insecurity and self-hatred. He kills many of his victims because they make him feel inadequate, usually by having better taste than he does. He is deeply disliked by others as well—his friends mock him as the "boy next door"; his own lawyer refers to him as a "bloody ass-kisser... a brown-nosing goody-goody"; and he is often dismissed as "yuppie trash" by people outside his social circle.

How Many Good Movies Has George Clooney Directed, Really?

With his 6th directional effort, George Clooney's Suburbicon opens this weekend. The film stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac and was 'one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2017'. The film 'is based on a Coen Brothers script' about a black family being ran out of their neighborhood by 'angry white suburbanites' that takes place in the 1950s. The movie premiered at the film festivals in Venice and Toronto and...bombed. The movie is currently at 38% on Rotten Tomatoes and thoroughly destroyed by top critics as the NY Post's Sara Stewart calling the film “bizarrely tone-deaf” and New York Magazine's David Edelstein stating “I frankly don't know why Suburbicon happened. I do know that pulpy black comedy combined with a straight-ahead story of racism translates into sanctimonious pulp”. So with Suburbicon being a misfire, Decider asks the question: “How many good movies has George Clooney directed?

Kellogg's apologizes for racially insensitive Corn Pops cereal box artwork

- The Marvel Comics' Black Bolt writer called out Kellogg's, tweeting: "yes its a tiny thing, but when you see your kid staring at this over breakfast and realize millions of other kids are doing the same…"

- Kellogg's later released this statement: "Kellogg Company has respect for all people, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion has long been a top priority. We take feedback very seriously, and it was never our intention to offend anyone. We apologize sincerely. The package artwork has been updated and will begin to appear on store shelves soon as it flows through distribution."

- Some self-proclaimed deplorables replied that Kellogg's shouldn't have apologized or redesigned the packaging, but Saladin Ahmed appreciated the company's "rapid response", tweeting: "today I used the computer in my pocket to get a cereal company to make their boxes less racist what even is the 21st century"

Lisa Bloom tried to kill Ronan Farrow's Weinstein story with file on Rose McGowan's "sexual history"


Lisa Bloom called Ronan up about ten months ago under the guise of hearing he was working on a story about celebrity NDAs and claiming she could help with her experience. She didn't disclose her relationship with Weinstein and he didn't know she was trying to milk him for info. He considered her an ally and told her he was looking into Weinstein as he swore her to secrecy.

As soon as he told her, executives at NBC and Ronan's agency began to receive calls and letters as Weinstein tried to use his leverage and friendships with power players in those companies to kill the story.

Weinstein attorney Charles Harder threatened to sue Ronan personally and claimed his family's history with sexual assault allegations made him unfairly biased against Weinstein. Lisa called Ronan and said: “I don’t know if you’ve talked to Rose McGowan, but we have files on her and her sexual history,”

Along with Kathy Griffin, other high profile clients like former Fox News commentator Tamara Holden who was have said that Lisa Bloom's lawyering has left much to be desired. She took issue with Lisa asking her to fly to LA for a press conference as Holder lived in NY which was also where the assault occurred.

Holder claims Lisa Bloom was so focused on getting her payout, she tried to pressure her into signing an agreement requiring non-disclosure of the assault despite Holder making it clear from the start that public disclosure of the Fox News climate was more important to her than money.

Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene considered hiring Lisa Bloom after her experiences with Bill O'Reilly and Lisa wanted her to sign an agreement giving Lisa total control of her media appearances and a 1/3 cut of any money she made from telling her story. After Jehmu complained, Lisa agreed to take the money clause out of the agreement but she realized the contract wasn't for legal services, but media representation.

“Her whole presentation was from a legal-representation standpoint, and then she sent me over a draft agreement that basically says ‘I’m not representing you legally, I’m your media representative.’… It was like I was dealing with a predator—and she is doing this in the environment of sexual assault and harassment to women who are vulnerable? Wow.”

Eminem Donates Proceeds From "Lose Yourself" Lawsuit to Hurricane Relief



Earlier this week, a judge ruled in favor of Eminem and Eight Mile Style after a lawsuit was filed against the National Party of New Zealand for breaching copyright of his "Lose Yourself" song. The judge advised that the country's party must pay over $500,000, plus interest.

An Eminem rep explained that Em had nothing to do with the lawsuit & will donate the proceeds to the hurricane relief & encourages the plaintiff to do the same:

Eminem was not a party to this lawsuit nor was he consulted regarding the case,” the rep explained.. “Any monetary settlement he receives from it will be donated to hurricane relief. He encourages the plaintiffs, 8 Mile Style, to do the same."

ONTD, did you watch last night's episode? What do you think about Brooke Shields so far? Also, I was joking last week, but they totally copied that S10 episode down to a letter! Same exact plot! Couldn't they have switched it up a little? At least Carisi looked handsome. That is all I ask.

Emma Thompson recalls the time she thought she was going to die in an Arctic Monkeys mosh pit




Emma Thompson revealed on The Graham Norton Show of her mosh pit experience,"“There were 90,000 teenagers and me with my 54-year-old mate,” she says. “I initially thought how nice it was until two things happened. First, I got into the mosh pit while the Arctic Monkeys were playing and I was so crushed in and moved up and down by people I thought ‘Oh, now is when I die. I always wondered when it would be, but I didn’t picture this’.

Emma also added:“Then the toilets overflowed and you had to walk through it,” Thompson adds. “I thought ‘This literally is hell’. It was grim and I am never going again.”

K-Pop superstar Taemin talks gender stereotypes in Billboard interview



  • On new song 'MOVE': “I wanted to go beyond what K-pop typically is perceived as, and through 'MOVE' I was able to show a concept that’s more edgy, more powerful,” “Not only that, but regardless of the gender, I believe that all of the audience will be able to enjoy and listen to this as something different from most of what’s coming out in K-pop.”

  • On the 'MOVE' choreography: “My aim was to find a middle ground, mixing both masculine and feminine movements into the choreography together.” “My body shape is like that of a dancer’s,” “It’s not too masculine or overly muscular and I wanted to take advantage of that. I thought I could show the soft lines like the dance movements of a ballet dancer by adding subtlety to my choreography. I wanted to break the idea of what male performers are supposed to show, what performances girl groups are supposed to show. I really wanted to break those labels, showing that dance is a form of art.”

Ellen Degeneres jokes about Katy Perry's boobs

October 25th was Katy Perry's 33rd birthday, and Ellen Degeneres tweeted well-intentioned birthday wishes:



The words, "It's time to get out the big ballons" is a reference to the lyrics of Katy's song "Birthday."

But did Ellen go too far? Lots of uptight people men on the internet say yes!

Namely, a bunch of men who are complaining that this is sexual harassment or reverse sexism or something. They are saying that if a man tweeted this, he would be accused of sexual harassment. (There are samples of outraged tweets at the source, I didn't feel like wasting the energy on men.)

Celebs react to disabled 10-year-old girl detained for deportation while on her way to surgery

Background: Rosamaria Hernandez is a 10-year-old girl in Texas with cerebral palsy. She also has kidney stones. On her way to gallbladder surgery, a border patrol checkpoint (note: border patrol has jurisdiction 100 miles of the border) stopped her ambulance. The agents found out that she was brought here without papers when she was 3 months old. She was immediately put under custody. She was escorted to the hospital, and armed guards were posted outside the operating room. As soon as she recovered from surgery, Border Patrol put her in a detention center where she's being held for deportation, and refuse to release her to her parents.

TERROR IN RIVERDALE — Mayor McCoy calls an emergency town hall meeting to deal with the growing chaos in Riverdale thanks to Archie's vigilante gang no doubt doing something stupid.

Meanwhile, when Betty finds that the killer got wayyyyy too motivated from her Jubilee speech, her decision to keep some parts of it from Jughead causes further friction between the two.

Elsewhere, Veronica grows concerned for Archie when she realizes the lengths he would go to seek revenge against the person terrorizing Riverdale (like the fact that he has a gun now which is enough to put the town past a red alert).

Finally, tensions between the North and Southside finally come to a head and leads to an unexpected showdown in the rain.
