Warner Bros has reportedly fired Heard from appearing in "Aquaman 2," and are allegedly replacing her with "Game of Thrones" star, Emilia Clarke

A source told Australian site Sausage Roll, "Amber Heard did not pass her physical examination. She’s put on some pounds and is in terrible shape. There is a clause in her contract which says she is required to be in good form ahead of shooting and she violated that."

The move comes on the heels of a global push for Heard's exit, including an online petition worth over 1 million signatures strong.

Footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic attacks LeBron James over his activism. LeBron responds.



In a recent interview with Discovery Plus, Swedish soccer player Ibrahimovic said it was a mistake for LeBron James and other athletes to get involved in politics, saying they should "just do what you do best, because it doesn't look good."

Lebron responded by saying he will never shut up because he understands how powerful his voice can be.

"I have 300+ kids at my school who need a voice and I'm their voice...I'm the wrong guy to go at, I do my homework." and also called out his hypocrisy adding that Ibra "... was the same guy who said when he was back in Sweden... because his last name wasn't a certain last name, that he felt there was some racism going on when he was out on the pitch."

'Variety' ignites discussion on being latina vs being a POC over Anya Taylor-Joy's GG win



Anya Taylor-Joy won a Golden Globe last night for "The Queen's Gambit", which then prompted 'Variety' to say that this was "the first woman of color to win since Queen Latifah in 2008".

Context, according to her Wikipedia:

"Anya Josephine Marie Taylor-Joy was born on 16 April 1996 in Miami, Florida. [...] Her mother, Jennifer Marina Joy, is a psychologist who was born and raised in Zambia and is of English and Spanish descent. Her father, Dennis Alan Taylor, is an Argentine of Scottish heritage."

Anya considers herself latina, for being raised in Argentina and only moved to England when she was around 8 years old. She holds British, American, and Argentine citizenship. However, she does not consider herself a person of color:

'Variety' was quick(ish) to correct their article and only mention that she is "the first Latina to win in this category."

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - March



Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

ONTD Original - Seven Romani Women You Should Know, Part One

Thanks to the recent amount of discourse brought on by WandaVision, and inspired partly by Instagram accounts such as Romani Herstory, I decided to make a series of posts dedicated to Romani artists who have broken the mold of stereotypes, be they musicians, artists, actors or activists.

The Romani do not enjoy the best rep in pop culture media - for centuries, we've been the boogeymen to scare children with, the roving bands of criminals that will rob you blind and betray you to Generic Monster of the Week, or monstrous cannibals hiding in the dark. Romani women in particular enjoy two very popular archetypes - seductive young woman who exists only to tempt white men and then die, or evil old witches who cast curses on anything that moves and then die. Rarely is nuance and complexity ever shown with Romani characters, and even then, when those characters do defy stereotypes, Romani actors are never cast to depict them in films or Romani culture is simply wiped away, treated more as a nuisance than an ethnicity that deserves positive representation. However, one of the many pros of the digital era is the easy access Roma actors now have to produce and distribute their own content. For once, Romani are given control over our image, one that is divorced from the villainy we are associated with. In part one of this series, I focus on seven Romani women in particular who have broken through the stereotypes associated with our culture, reclaiming female Romani identity from the white, gadjekano gaze. also, English isn't my first language so I apologize if something reads weirdly.

Elena-Andujar.jpg
Born in Seville to a Spanish Gitana mother and African American father, Elena Andújar is a renown flamenco dancer and singer who has also experimented in other forms of dance and music such as jazz and blues. She began to study flamenco at the age of ten, and graduated at the school of Matilde Coral and Rafael el Negro, two of the most renown artists in flamenco. While dancing was her passion, she would also delve into singing, touring throughout the world in the early 2000's. She would eventually open up her own school in 2004. At the latest, she is currently recording her latest album. Fun fact - she briefly appeared in The Devil's Advocate and danced alongside Al Pacino, but there's no clip of the scene online. Here's another clip of her performing instead!

Poorly-Produced Golden Globes is a ratings FLOP


Last night's badly produced Golden Globes ceremony is a certifiable flop. 5.42 million watched the telecast, resulting in a 1.2 18-49 demo. Both were down more than 60% from last year.

Reviews for the ceremony has been largely negative, citing technogical glitches and poor direction. Critics also blasted the HFPA portion where they acknowledged their inclusion scandals as toothless and tone-deaf.
