We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot admitted that the cringey celebrity sing-along to John Lennon’s “Imagine” during the beginning of the pandemic was in “poor taste.”
“I was calling Kristen [Wiig] and I was like, ‘Listen, I want to do this thing,’” Gadot said in an interview. “The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it came here [to the US] in the same way. I was seeing where everything was headed. But [the video] was premature.”
The “Red Notice” star, along with Natalie Portman, Jimmy Fallon, Zoë Kravitz, Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, and more celebrities were panned for harmonizing in their gilded mansions, while the rest of the world struggled to ride out the lockdown.
“It wasn’t the right timing, and it wasn’t the right thing. It was in poor taste,” she acknowledged. “All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the bull’s-eye, right?”
The naked baby featured on the cover of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album won’t be cashing in on his claim that the Kurt Cobain fronted grunge band sexually exploited him with the image.
Spencer Elden said he suffered “lifelong damage” from the underwater photoshoot, which displayed a baby in the buff swimming after a dollar bill on a fishing hook.
He claims that by being forced to participate in “commerical sex acts” the band violated federal child pornography statutes.
“I’m pissed off about it, to be honest … I’ve been going through it my whole life,” Elden said in an interview. “But recently I’ve been thinking, ‘What if I wasn’t OK with my freaking penis being shown to everybody?’ I didn’t really have a choice.”
The lawsuit argued that he suffered “permanent harm” from the album cover, which has resulted in interference with normal development, lifelong loss of income, and loss of enjoyment of life, amongst other complaints.
A California court dismissed the case when Elden failed to file an opposition to the defendants’ motion to dismiss by Dec. 30. He currently has until Jan. 13 to file an amendment to the complaint.
Comedian Patton Oswalt issued a lengthy apology to woke social media for posting a photo with long-time friend Dave Chappelle over the weekend.
“Finished me [sic] set at @mccawhall and got a text from @davechappelle,” he wrote in the original post. “Come over to the arena he’s performing in next door and do a guest set. Why not? I waved good-bye to this hell-year with a genius I started comedy with 34 years ago.”
“He works an arena like he’s talking to one person and charming their skin off,” the “A.P. Bio” star continued. “Anyway, I ended the year with a real friend and a deep laugh. Can’t ask for much more.”
After heavy flack from followers, Oswalt bent the knee to enraged liberals and posted a simpering apology the next day.
“I’m sorry, truly sorry, that I didn’t consider the hurt this would cause. Or the DEPTH of that hurt,” he pandered. “So easy to think someone ELSE needs growth and miss the need in yourself. Gonna keep trying.”
Oswalt explained that he hadn’t seen Chappelle in a “long time” and that they’ve known each other since they were teenagers, but he completely disagrees with the comedian “about transgender rights & representation.”
“I support trans peoples’ rights — ANYONE’S rights — to live safely in the world as their fullest selves,” Oswalt continued. “For all the things he’s helped ME evolve on, I’ll always disagree with where he stands NOW on transgender issues.”
Drunk Wives Matter
“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Kelly Dodd said she was fined by Bravo for wearing novelty merch that riffed off the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I got fined for wearing a ‘Drunk Wives Matter’ hat, and I didn’t even buy it,” she said in an interview. “It was given to me and I didn’t wear it on the show. It was at my bridal shower, and I got dinged for that.”
Dodd said she was charged $16,000 by the network for wearing the hat and other unspecified behavior, which may have been related to throwing the maskless event in October 2020.
“I got $16,000, and they wouldn’t tell me why, but I know one of those reasons was wearing that hat,” she explained. “I know I caused them a lot of grief because they did promote BLM so much.”
“Zombieland” star Abigail Breslin blasted an Instagram hater for criticizing a photo she posted of herself wearing a mask on a roller coaster. “Who’s the pathetic loser wearing a mask?” The commenter wrote.
“That pathetic loser would be me, someone who lost their dad due to someone not wearing a mask and giving him Covid,” Breslin sassed back, “You can kindly go f— off now.”
The “Stillwater” actress lost her 78-year-old father early last year after contracting COVID-19.
Dame Helen Mirren’s casting as Israel’s former prime minister Golda Meir was criticized by English actress Dame Maureen Lipman, as Mirren is not Jewish and wore prosthetics for the role.
“The Jewishness of the character is so integral,” remarked “The Pianist” star. “I’m sure she will be marvellous, but it would never be allowed for Ben Kingsley to play Nelson Mandela. You just couldn’t even go there.”
Mirren, who has publicly supported Israel, was bashed for participating in the film, which takes place during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, when Arab states attacked the country.
“Helen Mirren doing a film about the first female prime minister of Israel is a slap in the face to all the people of Palestine, they are literally celebrating taking over Palestine and taking families out of their homes, murdering children, families! Tasteless film,” one Twitter user wrote.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent more money dissolving their now defunct foundation, Sussex Royal,” than they raised for their current charity, Archewell, in all of 2020.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent $55,000 on legal fees to close down Sussex Royal, but only managed to raise fewer than $50,000 at Archewell, which was established in April 2020.
Archewell was set up with the mission of a “shared purpose global action,” and intends to lead “the way with compassion” according to the website.
Sources said that the Duke and Duchess delayed Archewell projects due to the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, and did not open a bank account for the foundation until January 2021.
