Chris D'Elia Trends as Twitter Users Share Stories of Assault, Soliciting Minors, and Much More



THREAD: https://twitter.com/girlpowertbh/status/1273021191347789824

Comedian Chris D'Elia previously played a sexual predator/pedophile in both Netflix's You and Comedy Central's Workaholics. On June 16, Twitter user @girlpowertbh shared her real-life experience with him when she was underage.

This opened the floodgates, with countless others coming forward and posting similar experiences. D'Elia has been accused of [behind a cut]soliciting nude photos and hookups from teens, exposing himself to hotel staff, using nude photos as blackmail collateral, having sex with "blackout drunk" and "unconscious" teens and young women while sober himself, being verbally abusive when turned down or ignored, and more.
Within 6 hours of the first tweet, D'Elia deleted his personal Facebook account and has been deleting old tweets. Some people have found and shared telling clips and screenshots, such as:

At least one fellow male comedian reveals that he's aware of things D'Elia has done that are "way worse" than Louis CK, and [other comedy people weigh in.]

Lee Daniels couldn't watch "Brokeback Mountain " for 15 years after turning down chance to direct



-Lee Daniels spoke of how he tried to get "Brokeback Mountain" made.

- Daniels:"It was a very expensive piece to keep and I simply couldn't get the film made.Nobody wanted to see the movie, nobody wanted to make the movie.I couldn't watch the film when it came out, I saw the movie in my head the script was so powerful I saw the entire film in my head because it was so powerful.

-Daniels didn't think a straight directer could do the film justice,but he watched the film 15 years later and had this take.Daniels"I saw it and Ang Lee did a really good job.As a matter of fact,he did it in a way that was palatable for many heterosexuals around the world. I would have probably been more in your face with it,and he did it in a different perceptive.So kudos to him. And I told him that."

-Daniels went on to be nominated for the best director Oscar for"Precious".

_Daniels next film"The United States vs. Billie Holliday" will detail how the famed singer was targeted by the federal department of narcotics lead by a black federal agent who she has a affair with.

Lonnie Chavis from This is Us Shares His Experience with Racism




Lonnie Chavis, a 12 year old black actor on This is Us shares his experience on racism. You should read the entire piece written by him, it's very well said and impactful.

I can recall a time on set when I started crying listening to an actor portray a racist grandmother toward my character. The director and writers told me that they didn’t need me to cry for the scene. However, it was hard for me not to cry as I witnessed what I had just learned was my reality. I wasn’t acting, I was crying for me. Can you imagine having to explain to a room full of white people why I couldn’t hold back my real tears while experiencing the pain of racism? I can.

Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings, and his wife Patty Quillin, donate $120 million to HBCUs



• This is is the largest ever individual gift to HBCUs.

• Reed Hastings said he hoped his contribution would lead other wealthy individuals to give to HBCUs. "Generally, white capital flows to predominantly white institutions, perpetuating capital isolation," he and Ms. Quillin said in a statement announcing the donation. Mr. Hastings is worth $5.3 billion, according to Bloomberg.

• For comparison, most Ivy League schools have endowments in the tens of billions (Harvard's is $40 billion), while the top HBCUs have endowments that are in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

John Boyega and Joe Cornish Are Cooking Up A Sequel to "Attack the Block"



While on the Script Apart podcast, Attack the Block writer/director Joe Cornish discussed a potential sequel to the 2011 British science fiction comedy horror film. He revealed he and star John Boyega have been in talks about it, saying:

"We've got ideas. I met with John a couple of months ago to talk about it. We've always had ideas after the first one. But obviously we've both been busy doing different things."

He also hinted that with the first film nearly a decade old, a sequel would take into account how much things have changed – or perhaps not – in the passing years. "In a way, the longer you leave it, the more interesting it is...so that's all I'll say."

The filmmaker also said about fans revisiting AtB after Boyega's speech at a Black Lives Matter protest in London: "It's wonderful that people are revisiting the film...Most of all, it's a moment for John, and it's a moment for hopefully some social change. To be a tiny little part of something that I hope is much, much bigger is exciting."
