Trash Fashion Alert: Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel walk Grammy’s red carpet in MAGA fashion



Singer Joy Villa walked the red carpet at last night’s 61st Annual Grammy Awards in a MAGA dress complete with barbed wire on her shoulders, a red “Make America Great Again” purse, and the words “Build The Wall” on the back of her dress. Subtle. Last year, she wore a pro-life dress to the ceremony and has been wearing “statement” pieces on the red carpet since 2015. Another nobody seeking attention was Ricky Rebel, who walked the red carpet looking like Uncle Sam with the words “Keep America Great” and “Trump 2020” on his jacket. Apparently the jacket was reversible so when he was done being an attention whore he switched it over.

Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth says he hasn't washed his hands in 10 years



On Fox & Friends over the weekend Pete Hegseth told his co-hosts he had not washed his hands in 10 years. He starts off by saying to his co-hosts, “My 2019 resolution is to say things on-air that I say off-air. I don't think I've washed my hands for 10 years.”

As co-hosts Henry and Bila laugh, Hegseth continues, “I inoculate myself. Germs are not a real thing. I can't see them; therefore, they're not real.” Naturally, Twitter exploded in disgust. But Hegseth thought it was clear he was merely joking as did his co-hosts. Hegseth goes on to tell USA Today that his joke was aimed at germaphobes who need to lighten up.

“My half-hearted commentary to the point is, we live in a society where people walk around with bottles of Purell in their pockets, and they sanitize 19,000 times a day as if that’s going to save their life. I take care of myself and all that, but I don’t obsess over everything all the time.”

Chris Pratt responds to Ellen Page "I am not a spokesman for any church or group of people"




“It has recently been suggested that i belong to a church which ‘hates people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone,” Chris wrote on his Instagram Stories.

“Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk,” Chris continued. “They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.”

Chris added, “My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or group of people. My values define who I am. We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgement of their fellow man.”

“Jesus said ‘I give you a new command, love one another.’ This is what guides me in my life. He is a God of Love, Acceptance, and Forgiveness. Hate has no place in my or this world,” he concluded.

‘Ask Dr. Ruth’ Star Reports Most Questions She Gets Now Are About Loneliness, Not Sex


Dr. Ruth, Documentar-ian.

She tells the Television Critic's Association the questions she will not take while promoting her new documentary, 'Ask Dr. Ruth' where we will see her stand up for the rights “of homosexuals and of women". [that's straight from the source]

she won't talk about (potentially triggering):
[Spoiler (click to open)]beastiality, violent sex, sex during the Holocaust, as her entire family died.

Admits that she does not know much about transgender issues and doesn't want to speak about what she doesn't know, but insists that “every person has to be respected”.

Her most popular questions these days involve millenials being lonely and not finding someone to share life and experiences with. She is “very concerned young people are going to lose the art of conversation. Everybody is sitting with their phones.” (Though we apparently aren't talking to anyone on them).

Ask Dr. Ruth premiered at Sundance and will be on Hulu later this year.

Drake Cut Off Air After Criticizing Grammys During Best Rap Song Acceptance Speech



Drake used his acceptance speech for the Best Rap Song to denounce the entire idea of the Grammys.

"We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual based sport. It's not the NBA where at the end of the year you're holding the trophy because you made the right decision or won the games. You’ve already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown. Look, if there's people who have regular jobs coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows. You don't need this right here. I promise you, you already won."

The producers at the Grammys eventually heard enough and cut the rapper's speech short. 



Grammys clarified that producers did not intentionally cut off Drake 
“During Drake’s speech, there was a natural pause and at that moment the producers did assume that he was done and then cut to commercial. However the producers did speak with Drake following his speech and did offer him to come back on stage to finish whatever his thoughts were. But Drake said he was happy with what he said and didn’t have anything to add.”

FUNimation Cuts Ties with Voice Actor Vic Mignogna over Sexual Harassment Allegations



For over a decade, rumors of scummy activity at conventions have followed voice actor Vic Mignogna. Behavior ranging from sexual harassment of female guests, being a homophobic fundamentalist Christian diva (with sprinklings of anti-Semitism), and overall egotistical/jackass stunts. His behavior has been rumored and whispered about for many years, but those whispers are now becoming shouts



-Inappropriately kissing/hugging underage girls by surprise (photos at the source)
-Giving his number to 15-year-olds
-Implying he could convert a Jewish fan to Christianity because they weren't buying his Christian CDs
-Taunting a victim of sexual assault

[CW Sexual Abuse and Harassment]Numerous victims have come out and shared their stories of being sexually harassed by Mignogna as well as other voice actors and cosplayers who are regulars in the convention circuit.

Voice Actress Monica Rial says she has had an unpleasant experience with Mignogna



Voice Actress Jamie Marchi recalls a time when Mignogna grabbed her by the hair and whispered something sexual in nature in her ear


Prominent cosplayer Jessie Pridemore shared an experience of being sexually assaulted and how Vic Migogna used that knowledge to taunt how he could also "have" her


"So the part about Vic. The guy who raped me told everyone at an anime company I regularly worked with that we had fucked and that I was a con slut. He also told Vic. I played nice with Vic a lot because of my position in the community. At this point though, I had seen him be really shitty to people and staffers and knew he wasn't a good person. I ran into him at a con and said hi. We started chatting for a little bit and a couple fans ran up. I went to walk away, but he grabbed my arm and wouldn't let me leave. At one point, one of the fans starts talking about a series that he's in. I said that I actually really liked his role in it, I didn't even realize it was him (making a comment on how all his roles usually sound the same). He turns to me and says, "Oh I know why you like that series." He then slides his hand up through my hair (which was long at the time) on the back of my hair and tugs hard while saying "Because of _______." I was stunned. My heart sank. A friend ran over (there were a lot of witnesses) and asked if she needed to take me away. I just didn't even know how to respond. And if that wasn't bad enough HE DID IT A SECOND TIME with the implication that if the other voice actor had "had" me, he could too. I RAN off in tears. Called a friend of mine in said anime company and told him that if Vic ever touched me again, I would kick him in the balls, I didn't care who I was working for.

I know this will probably tarnish me getting invited to cons. It's why I started moving away from working for anime companies. I've become really good at ignoring shitty people over the years. But it is long past time that this comes out to light. Maybe one day I'll be strong enough to name the other one."


And now various conventions and businesses have cut ties with him. Of note is FUNimation for which Mignogna just provided the voice in their dub of the surprise hit Drag Ball Super: Broly film. They are also one of the biggest companies to dub and distribute anime.

Authors React to a Gentrified House in the Bay Area



A local Bay Area's tweet about a renovated house caught some traction among SFF authors on twitter. This renovation has been a passion project for the San Francisco house flipper who purchased it, but people online aren't so impressed with the final exterior results (no word about the interior updates though) and are seeing it as yet another nail in the Bay Area's gentrification problem.

Blue Wang (the house flipper) on gutting and renovating the house: "I'm the kind of person who pays a lot of attention to details. You walk into this house versus another house that's on the market and it's not going to be the same because of all the details I gave a lot of thought to. I wanted to go in and do this house justice. It has been standing for 120 years. I wanted to make sure to put form, function and quality at the forefront."

Others are taking issues with how stripped of its character the new house is.
