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:
“Cheers” actress Kristie Alley accused White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki of being a “mean girl” when dodging questions from reporters that she doesn’t want to answer.
“Omg Jen Saki [sic] … can you answer ANY question FULLY and without that condescending smirk? We are an audience of Americans who are listening in earnest for answers, not mean girl s***,” she tweeted on Thursday.
“Build your manners back better,” she snarked in reference to President Biden’s infrastructure plan.
“Underworld” star Michael Sheen announced that he would be giving the majority of his acting paychecks to charity after becoming a philanthropist in 2011.
“I realized the difference between that child’s life being a little bit better or not was ultimately a small amount of funding. And I wanted to help those people. I didn’t just want to be a patron or a supportive voice, I wanted to actually do more than that,” he explained.
Sheen sold his homes in the United States and Wales to support 2019’s Homeless World Cup.
“It was scary and incredibly stressful. And I’ll be paying for it for a long time. But when I came out the other side, I realised I could do this kind of thing and, if I can keep earning money, it’s not going to ruin me,” the “Twilight” actor said.
“There was something quite liberating about going, all right, I’ll put large amounts of money into this or that, because I’ll be able to earn it back again,” he concluded. “I’ve essentially turned myself into a social enterprise, a not-for-profit actor.”
Pop star Ariana Granda is being ridiculed by social media for posting photos that internet critics claim are a misappropriation of Asian culture.
Redditors slammed the Italian-American singer for shaping her eyebrows into straight lines and concealing her eyelids in a similar fashion to East Asian Women.
“It definitely looks like she got the eye lifting surgery and/or uses makeup to create the shape of an Asian person’s eyes. It’s annoying, I don’t see why she can’t just be herself,” one user commented.
“I’ve noticed this lately too, it’s like she got so much black fishing hate that she decided to switch to Asianfishing,” which is a term used when someone co-opts a different ethnicity.
Grande has been previously accused of adopting black and hispanic aesthetics. “Ariana Grande is giving lightskins going from summer to winter went straight from blackfishing to asianfishing,” another mocked.
Serena Williams dropped out of a vaccine mandated international tournament for medical reasons, but did not specify if the COVID jab was behind her decision.
“Following the advice of my medical team, I have decided to withdraw from this year’s Australian Open. While this is never an easy decision to make, I am not where I need to be physically to compete,” she explained.
“Melbourne is one of my favorite cities to visit, and I look forward to playing in the AO every year. I will miss seeing the fans, but am excited to return and compete at my highest level.”
At 40, the 23 time Grand Slam champion has not participated in the Women’s Tennis Association Tour since dropping out due to a hamstring injury in June. She is currently ranked at #41.
Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit collapsed and died while training at California’s Santa Anita racetrack on Monday.
“My entire barn is devastated by this news. Medina Spirit was a great champion, a member of our family who was loved by all, and we are deeply mourning his loss,” said disgraced trainer Bob Baffert, who was suspended from the New York Racing Association after the winner tested positive for steroid usage.
Baffert claimed that the horse was treated with topical steroids for a fungal infection and was not given a performance enhancing drug. Medina Spirit died of a suspected heart attack, but will be autopsied to confirm the cause of death.
The horse died at Santa Anita, which has been the subject of a state investigation and fined for ignoring safety rules, after 23 horses died in 2019 and 10 more followed suit in 2020.
In the first interview since the Nov. 5 hip-hop festival that claimed the lives of 10 people, headliner Travis Scott says he has a “responsibility” to understanding what went wrong during his concert, but refrained from taking blame for the tragedy.
“Fans come to the show to have a good experience,” Scott explained on a podcast. “I have a responsibility to figure out what happened here. I have a responsibility to find a solution,” he said. “Hopefully this takes a first step into us as artists having more insight as to what’s going on.”
He denied hearing victims’ screams for help as they were trampled. “Anytime you can hear something like that you want to stop the show,” he continued. “You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. I just go off the fans energy. But I just didn’t hear [screams].”
Scott maintains he did everything in his power at the moment. “Everything I physically [could], sure, yes. And, if knowing what was going on … you just wish you could have done something better. But, standing there, 1,000 percent.”
The failed festival resulted in more than 140 lawsuits, most of which accuse Scott, rapper Drake, and Live Nation of negligence.
Another Kardashian former paramour is being investigated by Sacramento police, after threatening a woman and refusing to let her exit a hotel room. Reality star Black Chyna, who has a child with reclusive Rob Kardashian allegedly caused the altercation.
“A dispute between two parties occurred, and the incident was resolved at the scene by the individuals involved. No injuries were reported,” a Sacramento Police Department spokesperson said. “The department is actively investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and the investigation remains active.”
Witnesses accused Chyna of being high on cocaine and threatening to “beat” up a woman and her friend, but when the woman tried to leave, Chyna locked her in the room for twenty minutes.
