Taika Waititi, Jameela Jamil Comment on Todd Phillips' Claims that "Woke Culture" Has Ruined Comedy

Earlier this week, Joker/The Hangover/Old School director Todd Phillips had some choice comments about how hard he has it in trying to make comedies in a day and age where more people will call out racism, sexism, and other of his comedy mainstays: “Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture. There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘Fuck this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter."

Shockingly, some of those who have been able to continue to make comedy despite these hardships disagree!

Christine and the Queens calls out Taylor Swift for capitalising on LGBT culture

In a new interview, Chris stated that she was sick of straight cis artists using LGBT culture to prop up their careers, specifically addressing Taylor Swift.
She is 'conflicted', as gay people might see Taylor Swift's 'You Need To Calm Down' video and feel relief.
However, she reiterates that queerness is being used as an accessory for straight artists to capitalise on a demographic they can exploit with little social backlash and that queerness should not be used with the intent of selling to more people.

Demi Lovato apologizes for Israel trip, says she doesn't want to "choose sides"

Follow up to this post.

After posting about a "spiritual" trip to Israel to reconnect with her religious roots, Demi Lovato faced heavy backlash and disabled her comments. She then proceeded to apologize on Instagram, stating she simply accepted a free trip and was not attempting to make a political statement:

"I'm extremely frustrated. I accepted a free trip to Israel in exchange for a few posts. No one told me there would be anything wrong with going or that I could possibly be offending anyone. With that being said, I'm sorry if I've hurt or offended anyone, that was not my intention. This was meant to be a spiritual experience for me, NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT and now I realize it hurt people and for that I'm sorry. Sorry I'm not more educated and sorry for thinking this trip was just a spiritual experience."

Later, she took to Instagram comments to state she has no knowledge of the conflicts with the Middle East and doesn't want to pick sides:

Trailer for 'Richard Jewell'

Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, “Richard Jewell” is a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth.

“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.

The film stars Oscar winners Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) as Watson Bryant and Kathy Bates (“Misery,” TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Richard’s mom, Bobi; Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver”) as the lead FBI investigator; Olivia Wilde (“Life Itself”) as Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Kathy Scruggs; and Paul Walter Hauser (“I, Tonya”) stars as Richard Jewell.

Rachel Maddow


Three more clips behind the spoiler [Spoiler (click to open)]




Rachel Maddow is on a promo tour for her book Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
RM hurt her foot. When you’re old and fall down, everything falls apart. She missed a step, tore 3 ligaments, has an avulsion fracture. She was going from a dock to a boat to ice-fish. Whoopi brings up the crazy bananas press conferences yesterday. Agrees that we should send Finland President an apology gift. RM thinks he will be impeached. Joy says he’ll never get convicted in Senate, RM agrees. Only 2 impeached, then Senate acquitted. RM doesn’t know how he’ll behave when he gets impeached, he’s never gotten in trouble for his actions before. Whoopi jokes about tantrum on the floor. Sunny wonders if there are 20 Senators to remove, let’s say that happens. Then Pence, but he knew about the call [and is tweeting out full support]. WaPo is saying Pence did it, too, re/no military aide without Biden investigated. Asking foreign nation for election influence is illegal, even without the extortion. Pence had been given the transcript, various other reasons, of course he knew. Joy mentions President Pelosi.

Meghan blah blah Adam Schiff knew [fact: No]. RM points out both House and Senate committees of both parties have said nothing happened, staffers get these questions all the time, refer them through proper channels. They’re attacking the messenger to distract from the treason and extortion. Meghan digs in, anti Schiff. [Letitgo.gif] Abby claims Schiff has always been for impeachment [fact: No]. RM is on her game lol. Abby says there has been cry-wolf for so long, now that we have something, people don’t believe everything, she wonders if Rachel + media are part of the problem. [fact: No (well, maybe)]. RM says this is unprecedented, so many things already impeachable. RM brings up South Lawn (tweet in next section below) where he doubles down, calls out Ukraine, adds China.

Whoopi congratulates RM on 11 yrs with her show. Abby brings up Biden again, thinks Pelosi is also nervous. RM says when you’re at the top, people take shots at you, to have a clear front runner for all this time is a big deal. Closer to election will determine how this goes. Talks Warren, wonders how that will play out. Dem debate next week, 12 candidates. Meghan talks conservative media dominating liberal media, more loyal viewers [false equivalency, Fox is alone vs ABC CBS CNN MSNBC viewers combined, math is not hard]. Asks RM about her relationship with Aisles. RM talks about the business model, not that they were buddies. Fox has simple message, one track only. Sees it as different things, running a televised campaign vs running a tv show.

Talks about her book, Russia corruption (moreso than only TRE45ON), oil and gas industry, lots and lots of discussion about the Russian geo political climate. Whoopi wonders if Russia was behind the Saudi oil attack. Who knows, some cross talk. Abby says No her dad isn’t the w.b., ha ha, he’s on a plane home now because he resigned his job. They ask if he’s talked to her about why he resigned /crickets.

James Franco sued for sexual harassment over 'acting school' used to prey on and exploit students

James Franco is being sued by 2 students of his acting school, who say the actor used the now-defunct school as a way to sexually and financially prey upon young women looking to launch their careers.

The class action complaint was filed Thursday by Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, who enrolled at the school in 2014. The women claim Franco convinced students to engage in explicit nudity, sex and the "pushing of boundaries" by promising acting opportunities that never materialized or were never released. They're also suing RabbitBandini Productions, the school's co-owner and its general manager.

The women say the school was a ploy to "create a steady stream of young women to objectify and exploit" and a "fraudulent institution designed to circumvent California's 'Pay for Play' regulations and lure students in by providing them false hopes of acquiring job opportunities with Franco's productions."

Franco and his partners “engaged in widespread inappropriate and sexually charged behavior towards female students by sexualizing their power as a teacher and an employer by dangling the opportunity for roles in their projects.” These actions, the suit says, “led to an environment of harassment and sexual exploitation both in and out of the class.”

Franco's acting school included one advanced class called "Master Class: Sex Scenes" that the actor personally taught.

The school, called Studio 4, was opened in 2014 with branches in Los Angeles and New York. It closed in October 2017 after complaints of sexual harassment by a number of students who came forward to the media.

Franco nor his attorney have responded to the lawsuit.


Robert De Niro Accused of ‘Unwanted Physical Contact,’ Sexist Behavior by Former Employee

Robert De Niro has been accused of gender discrimination, harassment, unwanted physical contact and being verbally abusive in a new lawsuit.

The lawsuit is in response to a previous lawsuit De Niro filed in August for $6 million, alleging that former employee embezzled money from the company and binge watched excessive amounts of “Friends” on Netflix while on the job.

She says in the lawsuit that De Niro treated her as though she was his “office wife.”
She’s seeking $12 million in damages.

She says that De Niro called her a “bitch” and a “brat” and called another female business partner a “c—,”
He even looked the other way when another employee spanked her.
She also claims that De Niro had her “scratch his back, button his shirts, fix his collars, tie his ties, and prod him awake when he was in bed.”

She frequently threatened to quit but De Niro always either offered her an opportunity to stay or threatened “repercussions” should she leave.

Marc Maron on ‘Joker’: Don’t Blame Movies For Criminal Actions of the Mentally Ill

Maron has a cameo in the controversial film, as the assistant producer for Robert De Niro’s character.

Maron criticized the obsessive media attention devoted to “Joker.
He is the latest person to weigh in on the mass hysteria surrounding “Joker” :
• The focus should be on health care, mental-health treatment on a national level.
• Media attention might be put to better use addressing issues such as gun control.
• We should not blame movies for the criminal actions of the mentally ill.

Maron expressed disagreement with Phillips’ remarks about how “woke culture” killed comedy.
"If you’re too intimidated to try and do comedy that is deep and provocative or even a little controversial without hurting people, then you’re not good at what you do.


ONTD Reading Challenge - October!!!

Hello, ONTD, it's time (actually it's 3 days late, I'm so sorry!!!) for October's ONTD Reading Challenge!!

This month, our theme is: "I just wanna tell you that some people have war in their countries"

Sometimes we get upset about the little things (such as being late for our modeling gigs), but let's take Natasha's advice and - with the help of some really good books - try to keep things in perspective. This month, let’s read a book about war - it could be a memoir, a nonfiction book or a (fiction) novel about a real war. Please, no fictional wars (such as Game of Thrones).

Here are our SUGGESTIONS for this month. Feel free to read something else or make recommendations in the comments!

Parasite trailer #2

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

Parasite opens in New York & Los Angeles on October 11.
