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:

 

Rejecting Wokeness

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.” 

 

Assault Suspects

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.  

 

Costco Kerfuffle 

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.”

 

Whirlwind Romance

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. Prior to becoming Mrs. Gomez, Grande was engaged to SNL’s Pete Davidson for four months in 2018, before calling it off.

I hate it when actors think that their “status “ allows them to cut loose on an employee to make their point, and then think just apologizing on line is enough. Well it’s not! I live in NY and I hate wearing the mask and all our mandates, but you can’t take out your frustration on a simple employee, he’s just doing his job. Hey actors, you don’t have any “status”. You are just a person with a job, be it getting overpaid, just like every other American!
I have no words for Dinero, he’s lost his mind a long time ago, maybe he should just keep to acting.

No you don’t but it happens ALL the time. But they sure don’t publish that. But that’s America now. You can drag anyone down. I’ve worked in public my whole life and owned a fast food restaurant. So Im sure you all know that goes. I had mostly high school kids working there. And when I heard someone yelling or whatever then I took over. No one has that right to anyone like that especially to a kid at their first kid, usually, and I was the one who the rules not them. So if they had a problem then take it out on me but don’t ever come in here and yell at one if my kids. So apologize to her and get the **** out. They and when they came they asked if they could get served. As long as you don’t disrespect them sure. And they never did again. But of course you the jerk’s that were jerk’s but I would lose money before they do that in business. Everyone gets a second chance. They apologize that’s cool. It’s forgotten. Do it again well….. Everyone should have to work with public and fast food. Because it makes my blood boil to hear people act or say C**p. Fast food is the most hardest place to work, because most people look down it. But if they how they have harder work then a , let’s say Denny’s, because they don’t have just one job and a few tables. They work EVERY POSITION. BUT no tips because they are just “fast food” people. Sorry about the rant but two points. 1… Rickey Shrouder is not the first or last person to do this just had the press publish because of who he is. 2. If you do go to a fast food restaurant, remember they are young, usually 1st job. They are trying. And give them a break or maybe compliment. It goes along way for their self esteem to feel they are just as Good working there as a fancier place. Again sorry about rant. Just makes me mad people don’t how there words hurt Innocent kids/adults that are just doing what the bosses want.

I agree! When I was a newbie helicopter mechanic I got my butt chewed for not knowing something this guy with 20+ years experience took for granted. It was simple and nothing major. I checked out repair manuals from company school and studied them on my time. About six months later I was told to do something by this same guy and I told him he was doing it wrong according to the repair manual. A big argument ensued, I refused to comply with his BS. Vice President of Maintenance walked by and wanted to know what was going on. We both explained our sides.
VPM told me to show him the manual and I did. According to F.A.A. Regulations the manual is the approved text for repairs. 20 years experience got his ass chewed like he never did before. NOT using the manual the company is breaking F.A.A. Regulations, and could be open to liability legal action if something happened or if the F.A.A. wants to screw with you.
He had been doing that job wrong for many years as he had forgotten or ignored the manual . I was on the 20 year guy’s “Sh*t” List after that, Oh Well, he could NOT EAT me. VPM even called me in and thanked me for standing up for the company, F.A.A. Regs, that could have cost the company a lot of hassles and money.
I always remembered that and have a sign on my office wall

“EVERY EXPERT WAS ONCE A BEGINNER”

So give the newbies in anything a break. They are doing what they were told. If there is a problem, keep your cool and sort it out. YOU were once in their position. After I got my own crew guys wanted to work for me as I didn’t jack them around, BS them or Lie to them. If a problem arose we checked it out and did what ever it took to fix it. TREAT EVERYBODY LIKE YOU WANT TO BE TREATED and most problems don’t exist.
That I’m Famous or a rich guy or self important will not get you any approval points in the real world. I have met some RICH people who are very nice people, don’t throw their Famous attitude or I’m Rich around. To look at them you wouldn’t know them from any other local. Usually the people that do that are the “Look at me, I think I’m RICH, Famous etc.” Usually those kind of people have lots of expensive stuff, but them and the BANK own it. Mostly the bank.

GOD BLESS AMERICA, Take Care, Be Safe.
