Jussie Smollett Family Releases Statement After Hate Crime

"Our family thanks everyone for their prayers and the huge amount of love he has received. We are thankful to our village for your immense support during this trying time. We are so grateful that God saw him through this cowardly attack alive. Jussie is a warrior whose light cannot be dimmed. We want people to understand these targeted hate crimes are happening to our sisters, brothers and our gender non-conforming siblings, many who reside within the intersection of multiple identities, on a monthly, weekly, and sometimes even daily basis all across our country. Oftentimes ending fatally, these are inhumane acts of domestic terrorism and they should be treated as such. They will continue to occur until we hold each other accountable."

Richard E. Grant Tweets His 47 Year Old Letter to Barbara Streisand and She RESPONDS

Maybe that's what helps make actor Richard E. Grant -- currently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role alongside Melissa McCarthy in Marielle Heller's "Will You Ever Forgive Me" -- such a force of nature -- that pure boldness that allowed him to write a letter to the legendary Barbara Streisand, inviting her to stay at his hometown at the young, weird age of fourteen.

Ugh. Louis CK Returns To Stage To Spout More BS, Discusses Allegations

The exact quote was, according to "The Daily Beast", was: ‘I like to jerk off, and I don’t like being alone’. Lovely. It's interesting to see this charge that was once the quiet disgusting whispered secret about one of comedy's most successful and abusive men be reduced to the verbal equivalent of a dry fart. Again, a man who should be thanking his stars that his worst consequence is not having four TV shows seems very annoyed that people are wondering why he sexually assaulted so many people.

Eddie Murphy Signs on to Make “Coming to America 2”

Eddie Murphy is a beloved actor who, since 2001 or so, mostly existed in a strange limbo. He's still considered one of the best of the best of the best, but whenever he agrees to do some sort of comedy somehow he always sort of-- works his way out of it. For example, he dropped out of hosting the Academy Awards in 2011 when his friend Brett Ratner was kicked out as director for his homophobic remarks (see, Kevin Hart, it's not personal, we all just hate homophobes). Likewise, when he appeared on Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary, he said a few words, did no comedy and disappointed and confused many of his fans. Where is the Eddie Murphy of such classics like Beverly Hills Cop or Coming to America? Well, if you want the Eddie Murphy of the John Landis directed Coming to America, then you're in luck, because just now Eddie Murphy signed on to "Coming to America 2", to be directed by Craig Brewer and written by Black-Ish creator Kenya Barris.

After years of ignoring the constant sex crimes and rampant abuse of R+B singer R. Kelly (we wrote about his sex cult last year, you can read it here), the release of dream hampton's documentary "Surviving R. Kelly" has brought it all to the forefront. Now Georgia has opened up a case against the abusive rapist who destroyed the lives of so many teen girls he's kept in his home, torn from their families, and the mea culpas from artists who've worked with him are coming forward quickly, and a big one that has recently emerged has been one with Lady Gaga.

Ever so slowly, like a bunch of shambling zombies, then men who were rightfully removed from their posts for being massive sex creeps are shambling back as if nothing happened, leaving a trail of people disgusted they would even show their face in their wake, like a zombie would leave a trail of slime.

Then we had Kevin Spacey's creepy as all hell video where he denied all his allegations in character as Frank Underwood, then Louis CK came back with his alt right comedy set where the kids who survived the Parkland shooting were just grist for the mill for Louis' awful comeback. And now John Lassetter returns to the world of animation after being hired by Skydance Animation to run the division.

VIDEO: Kevin Hart on The Oscars: “I’m Over It”

Today Kevin Hart appeared on Good Morning America where he said regarding the Oscars: "I'm over it", and when given the incredibly soft ball question of wether or not a father should love his gay son (the answer should be yes), Kevin Hart instead talked about how he was judging the public for not seeing what's in his heart. Presumably he said this right before heading back to the unlikely job of being a movie star where yes men will fawn all over him and laugh very loudly when he makes fun of a gay person.

Outrage After Accused Offender Bryan Singer’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Wins Best Drama At Golden Globes

Who knows what the Golden Globes were thinking. In my opinion Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Blackkklansman and A Star is Born were all much better movies than the tepid "Bohemian Rhapsody". But even quality of cinema aside, it feels questionable that one year after a very memorable, a very honest ceremony celebrating "Time's Up" in the wake of the #MeToo movement, the award for one of the Best Movies went to a man who has been accused multiple times of raping underage teens.

Kevin Hart Mainly Talks About How Bad He Feels For Himself In “Ellen” Appearance

The video is... cringeworthy. I found it hard to watch. During his six minute spiel to the Ellen DeGeneres audience, Kevin Hart covers how hosting the Oscars was on his vision board, covers how he's apologized for the Tweets in the past (not sorry enough to delete them until he thought they could get him into trouble though, you might notice), about how heroic it was of him to step down (again, no mention of his rancid non apology, where he blamed the gay community for not being able to be happy for him, and not a huge fight when Ellen offered to help the Academy hire him back as host). No mention of the gay community or what he will do to help the gay community.

Louis CK Tried to Get Pete Davidson Fired Over WEED

Look. Louis CK sucks. For the longest time, people expressed that we have to separate the comedian, in all of his sex criminal glory, from the work. But after the leaking of a truly odious, alt right tinged set just days before the New Year, it seems all bets are off. Why even care to separate the art from the artist if the artists work is truly some rancid trash. Comics in the public eye have now allowed themselves to talk negatively about the once untouchable comedian, and Pete Davidson gave one of the oddest revelations about a comedian who is no stranger to those. Apparently during an episode of SNL, Louis CK told the producers of SNL to do something to Pete Davidson at the show due to his use of marijuana.

Awful Leaked Louis CK Set Shows CK Pandering to Alt Right With Anti Parkland Survivor Material

Louis CK has gotten away with masturbating and trying to silence women for pretty much his entire career, so I'm sure the sudden presence of any consequence threw him off. When the exposé in the New York Times at the end of 2017 landed, he expressed his desire to sit back and listen. However, after a leaked audio set of Louis CK doing an hour of new material that can only be described as hateful and alt right, something that many have compared to the baked over ramblings of a racist uncle at Thanksgiving dinner, it shows that CK is now pandering to the only audience that will have him.

Pete Davidson Speaks Out After Being Harassed By Grande Fans

Said Davidson in response to the Ariana Grande fans harassing him after the "Thank U Next" video: “I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of references. Especially in today's climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD [borderline personality disorder] and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth. I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won't. I'm upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is - I see you and I love you.”

Said Davidson in response to the Ariana Grande fans harassing him after the "Thank U Next" video: “I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of references.

Kevin Hart Dismisses Controversy Over Son’s “Cowboy’s and Indians” Party

The controversy began when Kevin Hart's wife, Eniko, posted a photo from the party showing guests dressed up in the costumes of cowboys and Indians. Controversy spread, but Kevin Hart himself has brushed it off with a... questionable defense, saying that it was okay when he was a kid, and the Redskins played football that same day. Now, aside from racists, no one really is okay with the fact that the Redskins are named the Redskins. And a lot of awful stuff was okay when Kevin Hart was a kid in the 1960's. It's a questionable defense, but Kevin Hart defended himself on his Sirius XM show, "Straight From the Hart", as excerpted on: "It shows how stupid our world is becoming with opinions.", which is a hell of an opinion to have about dressing up as the race of a people different from you.
