‘Sex and the City’ Trash, Jason Lewis, Apologizes for Abusing Cats

A follow-up to this post. Actor Jason Lewis, who played Samantha’s boyfriend in Sex and the City got caught shooting rice grains at stray cats. After the video went viral he released this apology:

"Everyone who knows me knows my love of animals, I've tried for months to work with a person who is coming into the neighborhood and feeding a large group of feral cats in an effort to relocate them as they have been filling the yards with fleas and waste.I made the wrong choice in shooting rice into the dirt (not toward the cats) to spook with the noise and scare them away. To fellow animal lovers that I disappointed, I'm sorry."


This apology is so fake. Anyone who was trying to relocate the cats in a humane way would not resort to shooting at them. I actually found this story out through a Southern California Facebook group for rescuing cats and was going to post it to only see I somehow missed it being posted here. Some rescues and fosters in the fb group are banding together to help save them but last I read they still have about 25 cats they need fosters/rescues for.

SNL is Garbage Roundup Post!!!

Morgan Wallen's the country musician who was kicked off SNL a few months ago for partying and making out with random girls right before he was supposed to perform on SNL, when he was supposed to be quarantining, only for Lorne Michaels to give him a second chance and let him come back and perform a month later. Well, guess he didn't learn anything from it because he was out partying with his friends again the other night and when he returned home he was caught calling someone the n-word on a neighbor's doorbell cam. Good thing Lorne gave him a second chance tho!

Michael Che is facing backlash for another transphobic joke on Weekend Update yet again. Che routinely makes misogynistic, homophobic, and transphobic jokes on SNL and Lorne Michaels does not seem to care.

Also, on Saturday's show, John Krasinski and Pete Davidson kissed, and it was low-key homophobic since the whole joke was "herr derr two guys kissing lmao". USA Today had an opinion piece about it. (Yes we had a post about the kiss but it didn't talk about why it was problematic).

I think I'm finally done watching SNL. It's not funny and I'm tired of old outdated Lorne Michaels running things.

Knuck if You Buck, Beethoven...Here are Some Black Classical Music Composers (ONTD Original)

OP has been contemplating doing this one for a couple of years but decided to forge ahead with it. Though not comprehensive, I thought I'd feature some Black classical music composers because it is a genre where our people are immediately associated with. Some are historical composers to some more modern classical composers. No need to do a race bending of Beethoven for Netflix when these musical prodigies exist.

Let's begin.

1. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (not to be confused with the very white poet). Quite famous in his time, the English conductor and composer's father was enslaved and later freed by the British. He's most known for The Song of Hiawatha, a trilogy cantatas, the piece brought him much success leading to three tours in the United States.

This list is of course by no means comprehensive and though not an expert on classical music, I thought this topic for Black History Month would be interesting to cover. Some of the pieces here are truly stunning listening experiences. Are there any classical composers you enjoy? Please share!

"Magneto" Trends after Elizabeth Olsen Hints at "Luke Skywalker"-esque Cameo for WandaVision

In an interview with TVLine, Elizabeth Olsen said there's one more big reveal incoming that fans will be shocked by. In fact, the moment is compared to the return of Luke Skywalker in the second season of The Mandalorian.

Olsen didn't reveal any specifics, she did answer affirmatively when asked if any big character reveals would take place in the upcoming (5) episodes. "I'm really excited," Olsen said of what fans are about to see, before adding the reveal she mentioned has yet to leak.

According to WandaVision fans, that character could be none other than Magneto - played either by Ian McKellen or Michael Fassbender. The idea caught enough traction that it propelled the X-Men villain to Trend on Twitter, Tuesday night.

It also happens to fit in line with Paul Bettany's previous tease of working alongside a big-time actor. "There's stuff that I can't talk to you about, where I get to work with an actor that's going to be a surprise for everybody," the actor previously told Black Girl Nerds. "I get to work with an actor that I've been wanting to work with forever, who is just unbelievable. We have some real fireworks together."

Who do you guys think will be making the jaw-dropping appearance in Wanda-Vision?

Racist Morgan Wallen gets pulled from radio

Racist country singer Morgan Wallen is facing massive backlash over being caught using the n-word arguing with a neighbor in Nashville.

iHeartRadio has removed him from its stations effective immediately. Cumulus Media has done the same with its own stations. Combined they control over 1250 radio stations across the country.

Spotify has also removed his songs from the top country charts, and Apple Music has removed him from its own Country home page.

Wallen released a statement last night claiming he was embarrased and sorry and promised to do better. But considering this is the third time in less than 10 months he's had to publicly apoligize for his actions, OP isn't buying it.

- Big Loud/Republic Records has suspended his record contract.

- CMT is in the process of removing him for all its platforms.

Trailer for Bollywood/Nollywood Romance 'Namaste Wahala' Coming To Netflix For Valentine's Day

Synopsis "a Nigerian woman (Dima-Okojie) and an Indian-Nigerian man (Mumtaz) falling in love, much to the surprise and shock of their families."

Technically, this isn't a Bollywood film, it is all Nollywood. The director - Hamisha Daryani Ahuja is a Nigerian-Indian. It is nice to see a film with an interracial relationship not centred around a POC and a white person. There's a small Indian community in Nigeria and tbh, the ones in lagos at least don't mix with the Nigerian peeps - they tend to keep to themselves in gated communities. The director spoke to CNN in 2020 and said "I am Indian but I have lived in Nigeria my whole life (O.P's note: all her schooling was done outside Nigeria). Everyone loves Bollywood and Nollywood, so I thought 'how is it that no one has done a love story between the two?'"

Chrissy Teigen gets roasted for unrelatable tweet about $13,000 wine

Chrissy Teigen asked: "What's the most expensive thing you've eaten that you thought sucked?" Harmless enough, until she shared her own experience about the time her server bought her $13K wine without telling her the price tag — which was supposed to be a cute, relatable story, except that it highlights that she's able to afford $13K wine in the first place.

She's been getting backlash on Twitter all day, to which she responded with:

Madison LeCroy says she FaceTimed Alex Rodriguez, 'Southern Charm' star claims

During the first part of the Southern Charm reunion, Craig Conover claimed that Madison LeCroy “flew to Miami to f–k an ex-MLB player.”

Almost immediately, rumors began circulating that Alex Rodriguez was the baseball player in question

Now, fellow cast member Danni Baird alleged on the “Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast that she had heard that LeCroy was talking to Alex Rodriguez

“Months before that I had heard, like, she had even told me that they were FaceTiming or something,” Baird, 36, said on the Wednesday, February 3, episode of the “Reality Life With Kate Casey” podcast.

LeCroy admitted that she communicated on Instagram with a married baseball player who reached out to her

“He contacted me, and yes, we DMed, but other than that there was nothing …” she told Andy Cohen at a reunion special last week.

Adam Driver’s Chair Bumped Actress’ Chair On Set

In an update to yesterday’s post on accusations that Adam Driver assaulted an elderly actress on the set of cursed movie The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Lídia Franco issued a clarification today.

“"I considered the actor's behavior undelicate because in the preparation of a scene he didn't take the care I think he should have taken. Our characters had to be physically close and, each time he got up with the great urge of the character to do the rest of the scene, the chair where he was sitting touched me with a certain force, which bothered me.”

The actress goes on to explain that, despite her “annoyance and the fact that this nuisance is visible, the actor was apparently indifferent, insisting on the same behavior”. Lídia Franco adds that this is what led to his “outburst”, but “without any intention of harming him”. “It was not an aggression, nor did I ever feel or report that this was the actor’s intention. I regret all the misunderstanding,” adds the actress.”

Producers of The Film That Shouldn’t Have Been Made have also commented, clarifying that no extras were ejected or dismissed at the request of any actor.

“ The producer says that, contrary to what Lídia Franco claimed, there were no extras fired. “During the shooting in Portugal, there were no dismissals to the extras, they were only asked not to take photographs or interfere with the work of the American actor (Adam Driver).”

"The only drawback to disturb the course of the recordings was, effectively, the presence of some tourists who were at the shooting site (Tomar). Because we are faced with a personality known to the general public, the immediate reaction was to take photographs of the actor, an action obviously intercepted by the production, in order to proceed with the smooth course of filming,” the producers add.”

Essentially: during the filming of a scene, Driver’s character forcefully gets out of his chair, and the chair would bump into Sra Franco’s chair. She didn’t like that. No mention of whether she brought this to Driver's attention or not.
The moral of the story is not to rely on google translate?
