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:
Liberal actor Alec Baldwin implied cancel culture, rather than sexual harassment allegations from multiple women, is to blame for New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s resignation from office on Tuesday.
“Regardless of what you think of Cuomo, this is a tragic day,” Baldwin tweeted. “Party politics in this country draw ambitious but ultimately isolated, even socially maladjusted men and women who, given the current cancel culture, will likely have their shortcoming exposed and magnified.”
“Beauty and the Beast” actor Josh Gad implied Cuomo was forced to resign his post because he’s a Democrat. “There are seemingly two playbooks for the modern politician: Democrats who do wrong must apologize and step down,” he posted.“Republicans who do wrong must go on tour, raise money and continue to break laws and decorum while staying in office.”
While “Sex and the City” star and 2018 Cuomo challenger Cynthia Nixon said the governor’s antics should have gotten him tossed out of office years ago.
“A man who hires and promotes known sexual harassers is a man who condones sexual harassment. We knew this about Cuomo years ago,” she tweeted. “It should’ve never required 11 different women to come forward to finally acknowledge how fundamentally unfit he is for the highest office in NYS.”
Country singer Clare Dunn was attacked by a Lyft driver at the end of June, when she and a friend shared a car service on the way home from a girls’ night out in Nashville, TN.
After her friend was dropped home, the “Salt and Lime” singer said she realized the driver wasn’t taking her home.
“And I just knew in that moment that I wasn’t going to get on that interstate with him. I wasn’t going to go quietly where he wanted to take me. And I think he realized maybe this girl was going to be more trouble than she’s worth,” she said.
A mile away from her house he pulled over, yanked her out of the car by her collar, and slammed her into a ditch face first.
“Somehow in the scuffle, I thought I called 911, but I didn’t even get the number right,” Dunn detailed. “But it was a miracle. They called me back.”
She said she regained consciousness as he was driving away and ran all the way home with a bruised and bleeding face.
On Monday, Nashville Metro Police booked Albert Boakye for allegedly attacking Dunn. He was charged with misdemeanor assault freed on $1,000 bond a day later.
Olympic athlete Simone Biles came out as “very much” pro-abortion as a former child raised in the foster care system. The Team US gymnast was on Instagram Live discussing unpopular opinions on topics like avocados, Beyonce, and NBC’s “The Office,” when a follower commented that abortion is wrong.
“I already know this is going to start the biggest argument & may even lose followers BUT. I’m very much pro-choice,” she replied. “Your body. Your choice.”
She went on the offensive against the people who suggested putting a child up for adoption as an alternative in her response. “It’s not that easy & coming from someone who was in the foster care system TRUST me. & adoption is expensive…I’m just saying,” she continued. “Foster care system is broken & it’s TOUGH. Especially on the kids & young adults who age out.”
She concluded that anti-maskers shouldn’t consider partaking in the conversation. “Don’t even come at me if you couldn’t keep a mask on. Or refuse to wear one,” Biles remarked.
Mask and Vax
Country music icon Reba McEntire begged her fans to mask-up, even if they’ve already been vaccinated, after she and her boyfriend Rex Linn contracted breakthrough coronavirus, despite being inoculated.
“This has been a hard year and it’s getting rougher again,” she said on a TikTok livestream. “You guys, please stay safe. Wear your mask. Do what you have to do. Stay home.”
“It’s not fun to get [Covid-19],” McEntire continued. “I did get it, Rex and I got it and it’s not fun. You don’t feel good. We were both vaccinated and we still got it, so stay safe, stay home, and be protected the best you can.”
She plans to go back on tour next year, but is uncertain due to the surge of the delta variant.
“We have plans right now to go back on tour in January, February and March,” she concluded. “We have plans with being with Brooks [and] Dunn at Caesars in December — the first two weeks, almost three weeks of December — but we don’t know if that’s going to go.”
The Caped Crusader’s sidekick came out of the closet in the latest issue of the “Batman: Urban Legends” comic book series. DC character Robin aka Tim Drake accepts a date with a male character in the sixth installment of the series.
Robin reportedly had a “lightbulb moment” when he fought alongside a male character named Bernard, and visited his house in the aftermath.
“I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved,” Robin said. “And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, about that night. And I — I don’t know what it meant to me. Not yet. But I’d like to figure it out.”
Bernard asks Robin on a date and he accepts, confirming years of fan theories that speculated Boy Wonder likes boys.
Not Just Friends
Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer admitted that they had secret feelings for each other during HBO Max’s special “Friends: The Reunion,” and are reportedly acting on them.
Schwimmer, 54, admitted that like his onscreen counterpart Ross Gellar, he “had a major crush on Jen” while filming the hit show from 1994 to 2004, and Aniston, 52, admitted “it was reciprocated.”
“We were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing,” he said. “One of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary.”
“I remember saying one time to David, ‘It’s going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is on national television.’ And sure enough, it was,” Aniston replied, “We just channeled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.”
According to Fox News, the pair have been “spending time” at Aniston’s home and were spotted walking around one of her favorite Santa Barbara vineyards.
