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:
Joe Rogan has a prediction for what will happen if cancel culture continues to prevail in America. “You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem, it keeps going,” he said on his podcast.
“If you get to the point where you capitulate, where you agree to all these demands, it’ll eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk,” he continued. “Because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of color have been silenced throughout history.”

Rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are reportedly under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting an anonymous victim in 2005. The stars of VH1’s “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle denied the claims through their attorney.
“The Harrises have not spoken to or been contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) or, indeed, any member of law enforcement from any other jurisdiction in the country,” according to a statement.
Earlier this month, a second accuser filed a report with LVPD that the couple drugged her in August of 2010, before T.I. confiscated her I.D., raped her on his tour bus, and abducted her to Florida. “When we arrived to Miami… I was forced to have sex with multiple women that I did not know,” she claimed.
Former “Silver Spoons” star Ricky Schroder caused chaos outside a California Costco when he was refused entry into the store for not wearing a mask, despite the retailer announcing that they were dropping their face covering requirement.
“Why aren’t you letting me in?” Schroder asked as he filmed the encounter. “In the state of California and the county of Los Angeles… and Costco, there has been no change to our policy,” an employee on camera replied.
“I’m getting my refund, I’m getting my refund from Costco,” Schroder fired back. “I suggest everyone in California get their refund from Costco. Give up your membership to Costco until they remove this.”
He later apologized to the employee in a follow-up video. “I was trying to make a point to their corporate overlords and I’m sorry I had to use you to do it. If I hurt your feelings, I apologize, but I do think that independence from medical tyranny is more important than hurting people’s feelings.”
De Niro Down
Two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro was injured on the set of Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Moon Flower” last week.
“I tore my quad somehow… [It was] just a simple stepping over something and I just went down,” De Niro said. “The pain was excruciating and now I have to get it fixed. But it happens, especially when you get older, you have to be prepared for unexpected things.”
De Niro, who stars in the western true crime flick beside Leonardo DiCaprio, noted that production will not be affected by his leg injury. “I don’t move around a lot, thank god. So we’ll manage.”
Popstar Ariana Grande married her fiancé of six months, realtor Dalton Gomez. They exchanged nuptials in an intimate ceremony with less than twenty guests at Grande’s Montecito home over the weekend.
