Digital nomad/influencer gets heat for encouraging people to go live to Bali



Influencer Kristen Gray, started a gone viral thread on Twitter on how she started anew with her girlfriend in Bali from LA, showcasing the amazing real estate she scored for the small price of $400 compared to rent prices in the USA and other luxuries that they could afford in the island, as shown on their different platforms, mentioning that during the quarantine they have been able to work in Indonesia for over a year, also stating they are living an “elevated lifestyle” and that Bali was “the perfect medicine” for her physical and emotional health, all while promoting their e-book Our Bali Life is Yours for $30, on how to achieve the same lifestyle, along with budget guides, references and even visa lawyers. Listing the benefits of living in Bali as safety, low cost of living, luxury lifestyle and positive experience as a black woman.

However, it didn’t take long for Internet and Indonesian users to uncover that they’re part of a stream of people from more developed countries, abusing a legal loophole in order to overstay in the country with just a tourist visa, evading taxes while working in the country and contributing to gentrify and keep out locals from areas by over inflating household and general living costs.

Her comments about living in luxury were also labelled tone-deaf, given that Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s most populous nation and its largest economy, yet a quarter of the population lives just above the poverty line, with almost 10% living in poverty. Indonesians also highlighted how different life is in the country for those without her American privilege, and the potential damage of encouraging more Americans to move there.

Kristen and her girlfriend made all their accounts private but ultimately Kristen deactivated her Twitter and TikTok ones.

Regina King has defended the casting of British actor Kingsley Ben-Adir as Malcolm X



King was questioned the director about her stance on the transatlantic casting debate.
In “One Night in Miami,” Ben-Adir portrays the civil rights leader Malcolm X.

“In my opinion, I feel like the best actor for the role should play the part; the actor that truly understands the role that they’re playing. And of course I had my own moments of thinking, ‘How are people going to [react]?’ because, as you say, this conversation is going on and it’s been going on. But up until that moment, if I was moved by a performance, I really don’t care where a person’s from because as an audience member, to me, they truly understood what they were doing, what they were embodying.”

"Some feelings and experiences shared by Black people in the U.K. and countries like Brazil mirror the experiences of the Black community in the U.S. While, yes, the history of how a country came to be may be different, but the marginalization of a Black man is the same…in all of those places."

‘Promising Young Woman’: Emerald Fennell & Carey Mulligan Interview



- 'Promising Young Woman' was written and directed by Emerald Fennell (you might know her from her role as Camilla on The Crown). It's a revenge fantasy thriller that revolves around Mulligan's grief-stricken character, Cassie, who is on a mission to expose sexual predators.

- The review describes it thusly: 'Styled like an entrancing ’90s romcom, it wrongfoots the viewer at every turn with its fluffy-sweatered, heart-printed world, punctuated by cupcakes and pop songs.'

- The film is backed by Margot Robbie's production company, LuckyChap, who were early believers in the story's concept.

- On the ending, Mulligan says, [Mild spoilers]“Emerald was steadfast about it from the beginning. She was absolutely clear,” [...] “And I’m sure she heard objections. Even when we were working on it, [the crew] were saying, ‘Oh, I just wish [that didn’t happen].’ But that’s just not reality. The film does live in this slightly heightened world, and I think there’s a tendency for people to want that to carry over into the storyline. But the storyline stays in truth. And I’m so proud of Emerald for standing firm on that.”

ONTD Original: Famous Cases of People Who Pretended to Be A Different Race

ontd shitpost.png

Why are some white people so damn eager to be oppressed? Some white folk even went so far as to pretend to be another ethnicity or race. Here, we take a look at some of the most famous of these examples.

Hilaria Baldwin
https://instagram.com/p/Bs5xCIRFMC4


Born Hilary Hayward-Thomas, Hilary adopted the fake name "Hilaria" and pretended to be of Hispanic descent, though her family is of "English, Irish, French Canadian, German, and Slovak" descent. Sure, "Hispanic" is not a race, but she even hinted at being Latina. Like in her Instagram video where she compares her "dark" skin to her daughter's white skin.

Matt Damon quietly lands in Sydney ahead of filming of Thor: Love and Thunder



According to News.com.au, Matt Damon has landed in Sydney Australia and has joined the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder. Damon had a cameo as "Actor Loki" in Thor: Ragnarok.

The 50-year-old actor and his family’s private jet touched down in Sydney on Saturday afternoon. They were taken to a private quarantine facility for their 14 day quarantine.

Per the The Damons’ Immigration Lawyer Rebekah O’Sullivan:

“Every aspect of the Damon family’s relocation and quarantine has been privately arranged and funded, ensuring that their entry will in no way impact or reduce the number of spaces for Australians overseas waiting to return home nor create any burden to the Australian taxpayer whatsoever,” she said.

Damon told the publication that him and his family is “so excited” to be able to call Australia home for the coming months.

“Australian film crews are world-renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it,” he said.
