Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter have recently announced their first annual upcoming LGBTQ+ convention. Dubbed the “Pride Summit,” the event is purported to be a massive get together of industry execs and their media friends to shove more “LGBTQ visibility” into every minute of Americans' screen watching, music-listening time.
Cheers and Look Who’s Talking star Kirstie Alley is bringing the heat against fellow Hollywood denizen Bette Midler over the actress’ “racist” and “degrading” tweets directed at President Donald Trump and his African American supporters. Midler, a rabid anti-Trumper and progressive reactionary, took her usual shots at the president on Wednesday, though this time it backfired.
What’s one more woke comic book action series in the litany of woke comic book action series? HBO is set to premiere its new mainline superhero series based on the legendary Watchmen graphic novel in the fall, and guess what societal threat our crime fighters will be dealing with this time: White supremacy.
If you’re a Hollywood lefty hoping for the total annihilation of President Donald Trump, then Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony on Wednesday was your day of vindication — well it was supposed to be anyways.
You probably haven’t heard, but the CW’s newest sci-fi series Pandora unceremoniously premiered last week. The series follows Jax (Priscilla Quintana), a young woman investigating the death of her parents while attending Earth’s Space Training Academy in the year 2199. While a space academy in the future sounds interesting, we quickly learn that the whole thing is basically a college campus with Star Trek props. The best example comes from the July 23 episode “Chimes of Freedom.”
Almost two weeks after they showed their viewers how to evade Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on their evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC marveled at their work Tuesday night as they celebrated the activists who obstructed ICE raids last week.
After streaming giant Netflix’s vow to fight Georgia’s new “Heartbeat” bill went viral across mainstream media outlets in May, those same outlets were silent on the issue's effect as they reported on the company’s historic subscriber loss and the resulting drop in its shares when announced last week. This, despite a massive drive by various pro-life groups to boycott the company in the same quarter that it experienced the loss.
Guys, before you tuck into your avocado toast and soy latte, get your phone out of your man-bag and click on over to The Hollywood Reporter for a discussion of “toxic masculinity.” Batman V. Superman and Zombieland actor Jesse Eisenburg discussed his new film The Art of Self-Defense with THR, praising the movie’s message as being a critique of said “toxic masculinity.”
British comedian Ricky Gervais has been called “transphobic” over defending women refusing to wax transwomen in Canada because they are uncomfortable dealing with their clients’ very male genitalia. Gervais defended the spa workers saying that it’s “real feminism” for women to choose who to wax or not, but internet users aren’t having it.
You know, there are plenty of Econ 101 students who could tell you that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is a bad thing for the U.S. economy. Plenty of waiters and busboys, too. So the counter argument must get away from the facts of the issue and offer something a little more emotionally-charged, like “the racist history of tipping,” in order to push for higher wages in the service industry.
The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing should be a celebration that has no trouble getting off the ground -- it’s widely recognized as one of America’s greatest achievements. However, Houston, we have a problem. There is no milestone or achievement we can commemorate in these woke days that doesn’t provoke a scolding “yes, but,” statement from the unhappy left.
Chris Pratt has gotten himself into some hot water in the last couple of days for wearing the classic Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag T-shirt. It’s racist, don’t ya know, having been adopted by Idaho Hitler Youth groups and Waffen SS sewing circles. But then again, some portion of Americans are dumb enough to let Colin “Pig Socks” Kaepernick tell them the Betsy Ross flag symbolizes slavery. Why not go down this rabbit hole too?
