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:
An arrest warrant was issued for embattled shock rocker Marylin Manson after he failed to appear in New Hampshire for a 2019 assault charge. Manson was slapped with two counts of a Class A misdemeanor for simple assault when he repeatedly spits on a female videographer who had been contracted to film his concert at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.
“He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated. He noticed this and kept purposely spitting on her camera,” a concertgoer alleged. “I think her final straw is he got on the floor, got within 2-3 feet of her, and hacked a giant snot rocket at her, not the camera. She was pissed off and disgusted so she stormed off and he just laughed.”
Manson’s lawyers released a rebuttal to the “ludicrous” accusations. “It is no secret to anyone who has attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative on stage, especially in front of a camera,” they said in a statement.
“This misdemeanor claim was pursued after we received a demand from a venue videographer for more than $35,000 after a small amount of spit came into contact with their arm. After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply.”
The 52-year-old singer has recently been accused of sexual and psychological abuse by multiple women, including “Westworld” star and former ex-girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood.
Actor Kevin Spacey booked his first movie in four years, after being dropped from his role as despicable President Frank Underwood in Netflix hit “House of Cards,” when he was accused by multiple men of sexual misconduct, some of whom were minors at the time of the assaults.
He will play a detective in an Italian crime drama, who in a not-so-subtle nod to his own innocence, is investigating a blind man who has been wrongfully accused of sexually abusing children.
Spacey is currently embroiled in a sexual misconduct lawsuit, where the anonymous victim is seeking $40 million in damages for the actor allegedly sexually abusing him in the 80’s when he was only 14 years old. Broadway star Anthony Rapp, who claims Spacey also made a sexual advance on him when he was a minor, is a co-defendant in the case.
The disgraced actor has requested the lawsuit be dismissed because the anonymous plaintiff has refused to reveal his identity, even though the judge ordered that the man must come forward in order for the case to continue in early May.
Actress Angelina Jolie is furious that the judge overseeing the custody hearing for her five minor children with A-list actor Brad Pitt, refuses to let her kids testify in court.
“Judge Ouderkirk denied Ms. Jolie a fair trial, improperly excluding her evidence relevant to the children’s health, safety, and welfare, evidence critical to making her case,” court filings read.
Citing a California code that allows children over the age of 14 the option of testifying, the papers say the judge “refused to hear the minor teenagers’ input as to their experiences, needs, or wishes as to their custody fate.”
She also asserted that Ouderkirk “failed to adequately consider” the court code that says it’s not in children’s best interest to award custody to a parent with a history of domestic violence.
Pitt was investigated by the FBI for a fight that broke out on a flight with the couple’s eldest son Maddox, who was fifteen at the time. No charges were ever brought against Pitt, but Jolie filed for divorce shortly after.
Pitt’s attorneys rebuked the notion that the judge was anything but impartial. “Ouderkirk has conducted an extensive proceeding over the past six months in a thorough, fair manner and reached a tentative ruling and order after hearing from experts and percipient witnesses,” they responded.
Another “American Idol” contestant voluntarily chose to leave the show this season. Arthur Gunn chose to pass up an opportunity to perform alongside iconic singer Sheryl Crow, when he pulled out at the last minute before the final episode.
“I couldn’t help but say no cause of some personal morals and values due to unpleasant environmental experiences,” Gunn wrote on Instagram. “It’s not necessary to state it, it is what it is, so I felt like I had to move on, It’s not the show @americanidol to blame, they were there long before nor anyone related to show.”
Gunn is the third contestant to leave this season, fan-favorite Wyatt Pike left for “personal reasons in April, and Caleb Kennedy bugged out after a video surfaced of him palling around with someone wearing what looked like a Ku Klux Klan hood.
“I feel upset about it as much as all you might have, and I’m sorry if I did let down anyone,” Gunn continued. “But I felt like all these confrontations didn’t need to happen at the show, so I just had to move on from there, sometimes all we can do is move on!!!”
