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:

Railroaded

Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby thinks that R&B singer R.Kelly “got railroaded” when he was convicted on all nine counts of sexual abuse and racketeering in court this week.

“The deck was stacked against Robert,” Cosby said through his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt on Tuesday. “His constitutional rights were grossly abused. I don’t know anywhere but in this country in the United States that a documentary can bring criminal charges against someone.”

Cosby, who served two and a half years of his sexual assault conviction until it was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in July, believes Kelly “was screwed” and “no one fought hard for him” during his month-long trial.

“He also didn’t have the resources and means, he should have asked for support from the court. He would have gotten better representation,” the spokesperson argued. “This is a guy who made the song ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ when there were rumors about young girls. The song played at every wedding and in every church. He was doing music with Lady Gaga!”

 

Defensive 

Bethenny Frankel won’t back down after she was accused of making transphobic comments on her podcast “Just B” earlier this week. 

“Nominate me for cancelation,” she tweeted Monday. “There are, like, five others before you so take a number.”

 

“Listen to the podcast. Then comment. I was absolutely not wrong. And I’m going to discuss this again this week,” she added,“Thankfully I have a platform to clarify what the media loves to distort. @justbpodcast ps. I’m not afraid of cancelation so not afraid of charged discussions.”

Frankel made waves for discussing pronouns being taught at her daughters school and told a story about a transgender girl bunking with other female children at a sleepaway summercamp. 

“People have been afraid to have real conversations. If you didn’t read your script before speaking, people get so excited,” she continued. “Come at me, I’m here … and the conversation will continue @justbpodcast.”

 

Actionless

Former Dallas Cowboys football star Dez Bryant called out former quarterback Colin Kaepernick for failing to help the Black community after leaving the NFL in 2016.

“I respect Colin Kaepernick. But there is one thing that I don’t respect and I said when I get the opportunity and to get on the stage and say it, I would say it. And I love him to death. So there ain’t no hate or nothing like that,” Bryant said on the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast.

“But brotha, you had the biggest opportunity in the world to create jobs, to build jobs, to give jobs to people. The people you was talking about,” he continued. “The people that you were so-called ‘standing up for.’ People who stood beside you, people who lost their jobs because of you.” 

“Where you at?” Bryant concluded. “I ain’t heard from you. He brought the awareness and that’s why I respect him.”

 

After receiving backlash on social media, he tweeted a follow-up remark. “Y’all missed the message and I’m fine with that…. I stand 10 toes down on my beliefs… me speaking on Kap was about unity.. kap leading the charge…. a ton of us athletes have donated a lot of money and yet to own anything (ownership)…. BTW go watch the whole entire podcast,” he posted on Monday.  

 

Denounced

Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal wants to be known as a regular person, instead of celebrity, because he believes most of them are “out of their mind.”

“These celebrities are going freaking crazy and I don’t want to be one. I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it,” O’Neal said this week. 

“I don’t want to be in that category. Celebrities are crazy, they really are. Don’t call me that anymore,” he continued. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.” 

“All my life, everyone probably gets stereotyped, but us celebrities, we get stereotyped because most of these celebrities are out of their mind,” O’Neal went on. “I don’t do that. I’m a regular person that listened, followed his dreams and made it.” 

 

Pro-Life

Country singer RaeLynn released a pro-life track on her new album “Baytown.” The song is about “a Bible Belt-lovin’ believer” who has an affair outside her marriage with a man from Galveston Bay and considers getting an abortion, but ultimatly keeps the baby.  

It turns out the woman she wrote about was her own mother. “If it went the other way nobody would’ve blamed her / think of all the small-town talk it would’ve saved her / She could’ve chosen one quick fix / To get her out of one big mess … but she chose me,” RaeLynn sings in the chorus. 

 

RIP 

“Batman” actress Jean Hale has died at the age of 82. She was best known for the 1967 spy spoof flick “In Like Flint,” opposite James Coburn and Lee J. Cobb. The same year she did a two episode stint on “Batman,” as a woman who helps the Mad Hatter try to steal the caped crusader’s cowl. 

“Nomadland” actress Melissa Yandell Smith, who starred beside Frances McDormand in the Oscar-nominated 2020 film, died of cancer at the age of 64 on Sept. 7. She served as Conservatory Director at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre for 25 years prior to making her theatrical debut in the film.
