Cause baby now we got Bat blood when it used to me mad love: CW erases Ruby Rose

-Since the Superman and Lois: Legacy of Hope special aired, fans have begun noticing something slightly off with one of the scenes from the Arrowverse that was used....

-In Crisis of Infinite Earths, the "Justice League" comes together to honor Oliver Queen aka Error. The scene consists of Supergirl, Flash, Superman, Batwoman, White Canary, Black Lightning, and Martian Manhunter....

-Well...TheCW went and snapped Batwoman out of the scene all together!

-Batwoman Season 2 currently has a long running mystery of "what happened to Kate Kane?" to which the showrunner has promised will have a good resolution to the mystery but with TheCW erasing Ruby from history it is unlikely she'll return to give the character any type of proper send off.

How Olivia Rodrigo Wrote ‘Drivers License,’ the Biggest Song of the Year So Far | Diary of a Song

In the latest Diary of a Song, the singer-songwriter and actress Olivia Rodrigo, 18, explains how she wrote her first-ever single — after a good cry, with TikTok in mind — before it took over the world.

It should be noted “brunette” was in the original lyrics, not “blonde.” 🧐

Olivia Rodrigo spends a seventh week at no. 1 in the U.K. and is expected to do so in the US as well. The song has also been certified 2x platinum and hit no. 1 on US Pop Radio.

The Hollywood Foreign Press hasn't had a black member in over 20 years

The fallout over this years Golden Globe nominations continue.

Last week, The LA Times reported that Netflix basically bribed Hollywood Foreign Press Association members into nominating the awful Emily in Paris by treating 30 of its members to a luxurious stay in the city for a set visit.

Now the paper has begun diving into its membership and this years lack of black nominees after Time's Up, The DGA, and even this years Cecil B Demille recipient, Jane Fonda, have spoken out against them. Here's what they found:

-- Of the 87 members who make up the HFPA, zero are black. The President of the Assn said there hasn't been one in for at least 20 years and couldn't even recall who that last person actually was.
-- In 2013, black British journalist Samantha Ofole-Prince was rejected by the Assn because "she couldn't make a living [in SoCal]."
-- Members include a wealthy socialite, a bodybuilder-turned-actor, and a beauty pageant queen.
-- A former publicist for a major studio said most work at outlets they "never heard of." A member admitted they don't let in serious journalists because they don't want to feel threaten by them.

The HFPA stated it will address these issue during tonight's ceremony.


Alan Cumming blasts Starbucks Canada for charging vegans more

-Cumming, who is an Honorary Director of PETA, was recently filming a show in Vancouver and was outraged that he had to pay 95 cents extra for oat/soy/almond milk

-In a letter to Starbucks' Senior Vice President, he said:
“More than a year ago, Starbucks acknowledged that cow’s milk is the company’s biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions. Yet it continues to penalize customers for making green and humane choices by charging them extra for vegan milk. This also unfairly harms people who are lactose intolerant—most of whom are people of color.”

-He went on to say if Starbucks really wants to meet their sustainability goals, they would not charge this 95-cent fee


ONTD, do you pay extra for your Starbucks orders?

Olivia Munn drops F-bombs during livestream + Helps catch suspect in suspected hate-crime

As we know, hate-crimes against Asian-Americans have been on the rise. Marvel and X-men actress, Olivia Munn, has been using her platform to bring awareness to these heinous attacks.

During an IG livestream interview, someone commented that Munn is "basically white." Watch her heated response below:

[Transcript for those who need it]I don’t know if this is what people are supposed to do or not, but it just-I wanna do it anyways. oboe_lesss, with an extra s, you can go f*** yourself cuz that’s the f***ing bit that, like, is rampant in this world. He says, “You’re basically white LMAO.” Like my mother is [inaudible]…we’re half…she’s…like I’m half-Chinese-Vietnamese, I’m half-white. And that’s the problem is that when I look in the mirror I don’t see a woman, I see an Asian-American woman. And it doesn’t matter what the f*** you see. The problem is that we have, you know people, who want to diminish us. And the truth is I don’t wanna be white. I don’t wanna be basically white. I’m really proud of being Asian-American. So I just wanted to call that motherf***er out really quick. Moving on. Cuz I don’t think people call people out enough. And I think that actually people in my position feel like they need to like just, you know, like be cool, keep the status quo, but like, that’s not kinda how roll. So anyways…

Additionally, Olivia harnessed the power of social media, posting to twitter and instagram CCTV footage of a man pushing down an older Asian woman. He was eventually identified and caught. Here she is on CNN talking about it. (TW: contains mild violence)

  • More information has yet to come out but it seems likely that the songs won't return to the platform until a deal has been signed.

Japanese music post: some new J-indie for February 🎶✨

I have seen a lot of people on ONTD lately saying that they're out of the loop on Japanese music or they'd like to learn more about it, so I wanted to pull together a roundup of some of what was released in February.

Disclaimer: I don't keep close tabs on most J-pop per se, AKA the major stuff making waves on the charts, but Japan has the second-largest music industry in the world and this is only a fraction of what comes out in a month. There is quite a lot more that could've been included if I had the space or time, but I hope it can generate some discussion that fills in the gaps of what I didn't cover!
