Allegations of Sexual Misconduct With a Minor Against Comedian Jeff Ross Resurface on Twitter

Amidst the multiple allegations made against Chris D'Elia of soliciting sex from minors and using blackmail to keep them silent, allegations against another comedian, Jeff Ross, are also resurfacing.

Videos of a woman talking about her experience working for comedy agent Barry Katz and hanging out at the Boston Comedy Club in New York when she was a teenager in the late 90s/early 00s have recently been posted on twitter (however the videos and original allegations are not new - they are just gaining new attention). In the videos, she talks about how she was in an inappropriate relationship with comedian Jeff Ross when she was a teenager and he was in his 30s and accuses him of rape. She shows multiple photos and tickets to events as proof and is seeking legal counsel.

According to the Facebook account these allegations came from, "Iwas15hewas33 - https://www.facebook.com/iwas15hewas33", another victim has come forward anonymously.

- David Tennant and Jodie Whitaker were on 'The Late Late Show' promoting that 'Doctor Who' is moving to HBO Max.
- They both rated home-made cosplay by fans. (I'm offended that they did not include an Stormageddon reference, but whatever...). They even got into their Doctor clothes.
- Seasons 1 to 11 of 'Doctor Who' are now streaming on HBO Max, and future seasons will air exclusively there.

Netflix to pick up The Trial of the Chicago 7


Netflix is close to picking up Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7. The film was previously planned to be released in theaters from Paramont at the end of September.

The film deals with - you guessed it - the 1970 trial of the Chicago 7: activists charged with conspiracy, inciting to riot and other crimes that stemmed from the protests at the 1968 DNC in Chicago. While acquitted of conspiracy, 5 members were convicted of inciting a riot and all 7 were sentenced to 5 years in prison after the judge charged them with contempt of court. All convictions were reversed on appeal in 1972.

The group will be played by Sacha Baron Cohen, Jeremy Strong, John Carroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Alex Sharp, Daniel Flaherty, and Noah Robbins. The film will also star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, Mark Rylance, Kelvin Harrison Jr, Michael Keaton, and William Hurt.

Tiffany Haddish Opens Up About The Kinds Of Roles She's Offered & Why She Passes On Them



In 2014, she was straight up offered a role in Top Five.
She didn’t want the role and had no problem telling her management team that.

"You know, when I first hit the scene, I was offered a lot of roles where they want you to expose your breasts. I remember that movie that Chris Rock did [Top Five] and it's like he meets the two girls and they have a threesome and then Cedric [the Entertainer] gets in there and he's supposed to ‘blah’ all over their faces — just let that baby batter go all up in their face. And it was like, ‘Tiffany, they're offering you the role.’ And I was like, ‘I don't want that role. I'm a stand-up comedian and I don't let people do that in my face in real life, so why would I do it in this movie?’ Like, you ought to have a little bit of respect for me, period. God made this face for a reason, and you're not going to disrespect it."

She’s made it a point throughout her career to turn down jobs that don’t fit into her personal code of ethics or branding. She's previously mentioned saying no to movies like Get Out. She talks about thinking about herself not just as a person but as a brand that other people in the world are seeing and consuming, noting.

"I feel like sometimes my representation tries to get me to go outside my lane, and if it is against my morals — and I do have some, I know I'm a little wild, but I do have standards — then somebody might get fired. It's like, I'm a company, I'm a brand, and if you try to go against the policy of the company, you might not need to be working here anymore. So my people, we have weekly conversations about where I'm at mentally, what I want to do. And right now, almost everything I'm doing, I'm producing."

Rebel Wilson Reveals She Was Paid a Lot of Money to Be Bigger



Rebel Wilson, 40, has decided to take up a healthy lifestyle, and has made a revelation that she was "paid a lot of money" to stay "bigger", because it highlights her comedic roles. She used to think as to why she was overeating.

"Weirdly this year was always going to be the year of health. I've been naming my years now, and, that's kind of having these resolutions but for the whole year. It's not like I want to lose weight and get to around a certain number. It's more than that, it's about dealing mentally with why I was overeating and I had a job where I was paid a lot of money to be bigger, at times which kind of can mess with your head a bit,"

Ansel Elgort responds to sexual assault allegations: "I have never and would never"


Ansel Elgort took to Instagram today to respond to allegations of sexual assault that were leveled against him on Friday, June 19, by a young woman named Gabby who claimed that [sensitive content]the actor pressured her into having sex when she was 17 years old and he was 20, despite her telling him she was in pain (she was a virgin at the time).

In a post on his Instagram profile, Elgort described being "distressed" by Gabby's post accusing him of assault, without denying having had sexual relations with her, writing:

"I cannot claim to understand Gabby's feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened. I have never and would never assault anyone. What is true is that in New York in 2014, when I was 20, Gabby and I had a brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship. Unfortunately, I did not handle the breakup well. I stopped responding to her, which is an immature and cruel thing to do to someone. I know this belated apology does not absolve me of my unacceptable behavior when I disappeared.

"As I look back at my attitude, I am disgusted and deeply ashamed of the way I acted. I am truly sorry. I know I must continue to reflect, learn, and work to grow in empathy."

Gabby's Twitter account has been deactivated since yesterday's post was shared.
