9-1-1 Actor Defends Wife's Past N-Word Use by Admitting to Using Slurs; Wife and Co-Stars Respond



9-1-1 actor Ryan Guzman hopped on IG Live in an attempt to respond to fans wondering about his silence in the past few days regarding the recent protests that eventually pivoted to him defending his wife's past use of the N-word which led to him revealing that he uses slurs all the time with his friends, and it's okay because his friends know the actual him.

"Now we're talking about her using the n-word. Let's address it, okay? You're telling her that she can't speak through Twitter to her Black friends that have allowed her to say that back and forth to them, specifically? Mind you, that is a private conversation had on a social platform, I can see the misconstrued insight on that. That being said, I have plenty of friends -- Black, white, Asian, Indian Korean -- and we make fun of each other's races all the time. We call each other slurs all the time. We don't get butt-hurt at all, nah, because we know the actual person, we know who each other are, we know we're not trying to bring each other down. So what are y'all trying to get at? You're trying to prove that somebody who is not racist is racist? Nah, you don't have that power. There is no racist energy coming from this household at all. In fact, we're helping. Again, being part of the solution rather than the problem. I know, for sure, that all of our friends would speak up to say the same thing. They know who we are. We know we're not about bringing down other humans, at all, not even caring about any kind of color or nothing. So y'all need to stop with that. And if you're breeding hate and throwing it our way, you're wasting your energy and you're wasting your time."

'Defending Jacob' finale: So... was Jacob the killer or not? What was the twist?!



- So 'Defending Jacob', starring ONTD Boyfriend and not-in-Epstein-contact-list Chris Evans, aired it's finale.
- Basically the show ended with [Spoiler (click to open)]Jacob's mom not believing Jacob's innocence and crashed the car with them inside. The entire trial we saw was for Michelle Dockery's character and she's found not guilty of trying to kill her son. Jacob ends up in a comma. (In the book Jacob dies and her mom crashes the car because Hope was found dead, not alive like in the show, and she founds a blood stain in Jacob's shirt). Chris Evans ends up drinking alone with his puppy eyes because we never found out if Jacob killed Ben or not.
- The fact that the show had that ending is leading people to think there could be a season 2, even if the show was promoted as a Limited Series. It's also Apple Tv+ most watched show (although the bar is so low.)

ONTD, what did you think happened? Do you want a second season? Are you disappointed by the lack of shirtless Chrevans?

Cathy Yan clocks loser film YouTuber Grace Randolph


Perpetually wrong and annoying as fuck YouTube film person Grace Randolph got clocked by Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan over Randolph's insistence that the film had massive reshoots. Even when called out for being wrong, white woman Grace continued acting like she knew more about the film than its asian woman director (and on all days no less):


Stories circulated that the film originally had a dick pic plotline to it, which sites called pedophilia elements, all based on things Grace "reported." As a result, Cathy called her the scum of journalism:
Grace has also been called out by James Gunn and James Wan for making stuff up about their films.

During a virtual charity DJ set, music writer/producer David Guetta announced he'd made a special record in honor of George Floyd which ended up being a music remix of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.

"The world is going through difficult times and America too actually. So last night, I knew we were going to do this, and I made a special record. So this record is in honor of George Floyd. And I really hope we can see more unity and more peace when already things are so difficult. So shout out to his family."

It should also be noted that Dr. King's family holds the copyright to his speeches and are very protective of them.

Celebs react to Trump threatening to use the military to stop protesters


In a terrifying speech in the rose garden, tr*mp announced that he would send the military to end the riots if states do not "dominate the streets" with an overwhelming law enforcement presence.

"If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them."

"One law and order. And that is what it is, one law. We have one beautiful law."


He then had peaceful protesters outside the white house gassed so he could take pictures in front of a church while holding a bible for the first time in his life.

Cole Sprouse Talks Being an Ally and Getting Arrested at a George Floyd Protest

https://instagram.com/p/CA5851tJlun


-Cole Sprouse was arrested yesterday and posted about it to let it be known to not make it about him. He was peacefully protesting (and also noted that riots and looting are also an "absolutely legitimate form of protest") with others in Santa Monica.

-Also emphasizes, "It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me [...] This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well."

-"I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement"

-He posted a link to donations and support in his IG story

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds pay reparations for getting married on a plantation

https://instagram.com/p/CA3527Ep-ou


  • Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds donated $200,000 to NAACP.

  • They say "it's the least we can do" and admit: "We’ve been teaching our children differently than they way our parents taught us. We want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything , all of it… especial our own complicity. We talk about our bias, blindness and our own mistakes. We look back and see so many mistakes which have led us to deeply examine who we are and who we want to become. They’ve led us to huge avenues of education."

  • They are probably referring to that time they got married on a slave plantation.

Hansen vs Predator: The Onision/CoolGuyKai Interviews Part 2

onionkai.png
OP Note: I am so sorry for taking so long in posting this. I planned on doing this in March but then... the world kind of got a little bit crazy.
- Onision (real name Gregory Jackson) has been somewhat quiet since Chris Hansen went to his house a few months ago. He went from making weird animated videos on youtube to making an OnlyFans account. He says he has left Youtube for OnlyFans. He is currently charging $5 for 30 days of content.
- He also posts weird videos on Twitter. Including one about self-harm. He used to make many videos about this on Youtube and many of his victims say that was what drew them to him in the first place.
- There haven't been any major updates on the investigation.

Under the cut are the second part of the interviews Hansen has conducted with victims of Onision and Kai as well as people who have been involved in their fandom (for now I am just focusing on people who had direct contact with the couple and not interviews with commentary channels).

TW; for mentions of grooming, sexual assault/harassment, emotional abuse, child pornography, etc;
OP NOTES: As no charges have been laid it should be noted these are all allegations.

There will be at least one more post in this series (and I'll definitely post any follow-ups to the investigation). Hansen has done more interviews but I think it was important to share these ones in particular. Hansen is currently investigating Dahvie Vanity the lead singer of Blood on the Dancefloor.

Thanks again to iznanassi and lannischester for helping me with these summaries and being so patient with me when it comes to posting.

ONTD myka.png

Myka Stauffer and James Stauffer are YouTubers from Ohio, USA, who adopted a disabled boy named Huxley from China. But last week they revealed that they rehomed their son after living with him for nearly three years.

Jim Stauffer has a channel called StaufferGarage, which has 790,000+ subscribers. Myka’s channel has 715,000+ subscribers. Jim has been getting a lot less heat for this than Myka, but he's an asshole, too.
