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:
Rapper 50 Cent says he’s leaving the Big Apple for Texas if Biden’s proposed tax hikes go into effect.
“His tax plan, I didn’t realize I would be paying 62% of my income back to the IRS,” he said in a recent appearance. “So that does change a lot. New York City will change dramatically. Like they are going to end up moving to different territories. You look at Silicon Valley, it is now in Austin, Texas.”
“So you’ll start to see people moving from these places to new places that make sense for them to hold on to just what they are earning,” the “Candy Shop” singer commented. “Not to have it just taken from them by the government.”
“I’ll move, Ari,” he told the show’s host. “I’m going to Texas. I’ve got my cowboy hat and everything. Everything is bigger in Texas. Really beautiful people, nice people in Texas.”
Conversely, “The Wire” creator David Simon is moving his upcoming production out of the state, despite the events being based in Texas.
“[As] an employer, this is beyond politics. I’m turning in scripts next month on an HBO non-fiction miniseries based on events in Texas, but I can’t and won’t ask female cast/crew to forgo civil liberties to film there. What else looks like Dallas/Ft. Worth?” Simon tweeted.
When a Dallas area film coordination company responded that boycotting the state will further disenfranchise Texans who don’t agree with the law, he insisted he was looking out for the welfare of his employees.
“You misunderstand completely. My response is NOT rooted in any debate about political efficacy or the utility of any boycott. My singular responsibility is to securing and maintaining the civil liberties of all those we employ during the course of a production,” he tweeted.
“Love Austin and San Antonio. Even like Houston some. And you are blissfully unaware that this is not a political decision for us; we can’t ethically ask any female cast/crew to relocate to any state that requires them to forgo civil liberties. The end,” he concluded.
SiriusXM radio host Megyn Kelly bashed the ACLU for quietly removing the word “women” from a famous abortion quote by late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
“Today the ACLU decided to celebrate, not celebrate, but commemorate the one-year mark of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death by retweeting a famous quote of her’s about a woman’s ‘right to choose,’” she said on her Thursday show.
“The ACLU is also pro-choice like Bader Ginsburg was, rather than just posting her original quote… they changed her words to ‘the decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person’s] life in brackets, to [their] well-being and dignity in brackets, when the government controls that decision for [people], [they are] being treated as less than a fully adult human…” Kelly detailed.
When her guest defended that the organization used brackets around the inserted woke words to make the quote more inclusive, Kelly reacted with skepticism.
“Oh Bullshit!” she replied. “You don’t get to mess with somebody’s quote to make it more inclusive after the fact and after they are dead.”
On The Run
“America’s Most Wanted” host John Walsh has faith that the American public will be able to find deceased van life influencer Gabby Petito’s on the lam fiance, Brian Laundrie.
“We did get multiple tips yesterday, our hotline blew up because it’s the people that will find this guy,” he told Martha MacCallum.
“I tell people you can text me, you can call me. I don’t trace, I don’t tap the phone,” he encouraged tipsters. “I know people don’t want to call cops because they think they’ll get dragged into it. I don’t care if you’re legal, illegal, where you are, just text me or call me. And that’s how I’ve caught all these people because the public is my supporters.”
He also believes that Laundrie’s parents helped him cover up his alleged crime when they took a family weekend trip in a camper after Petito’s disappearance.
He scrubbed that van, the parents helped him,” Walsh posited. “I know they got rid of the evidence… [Brian Laundrie] was in that camper when the father and mother went out, I would guarantee it. And I’ve been doing this 33 years.”
“He was in that camper when they went on a little trip before [Petito] was reported missing and they bought him five extra days with that ruse,” he explained. “That kid has been throwing red herrings everywhere.”
ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith said Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaggrey is getting less coverage because he’s a white male.
“How many times do I have to say it? … I’ve said this about Christian McCaffrey before, and I’m gonna say it again. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s damn near reverse discrimination. If this brother were Black, we’d be talking about him more. I mean this dude is special,” he said Thursday.
Running the football, catching the football out of the backfield. We know what he did coming out of college at Stanford. Christian McCaffrey is a special, special dude,” Smith concluded.
Marvel promoted a woman who suggested that “X-Men” should drop the word “men” from the franchise’s title.
She called the title outdated in a 2019 interview. “I don’t know where the future is going. It’s funny that people call it the ‘X-Men.’ There’s a lot of female superheroes in that ‘X-Men’ group. So, I think it’s outdated. I don’t know where it’s going to go,” she remarked.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced Victoria Alonso’s promotion to president of physical and post production, visual effects, and animation production earlier this week.
Elvira, the Queen of Halloween, 70, released a candid new book that detailed her assault by late basketball great Wilt Chamberlain and her 19-year romantic relationship with a woman.
She claims Chamberlain, who once wrote that he slept with 20,000 women in his life, forced her to perform oral sex without her consent.
“When a 7-foot-1, 300-pound man has his hand wrapped around your neck, there’s really not a lot you can do,” she wrote. “I had to wonder how many of those women actually consented to having sex with him.”
She also admitted to a nearly two-decade long love affair with a woman she identifies only as “T,” and has hidden from the world for the sake of maintaining her profession. “I felt the need to protect Elvira in order to keep my career alive,” the Mistress of the Dark remarked.
