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:
Elon Musk and Sen. Elizabeth Warren entered into a Twitter feud on Tuesday, when the liberal lawmaker posted an article about Musk being named Time Magazine’s 2021 person of the year, which she captioned: “Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.”
Not to be trifled with, Musk replied with a link to an article that called out Warren for lying about being Native American to benefit from affirmative action. “Stop projecting,” he clapped back.

In two follow-up tweets Musk said that Warren reminded him “of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason,” and concluded the exchange with “Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen.”
“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling once again inflamed the transgender community when she tweeted out an Orwellian response to a report that Scottish authorities will classify accused rapists by thier gender identity, rather than biological sex in police reports.
“War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman,” she riffed on quote from George Orwell’s “1984.”
Rowling has been effectively canceled from her own fandom after a series of tweets in June of 2020 alienated the Potterverse.
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased,” she wrote at the time. “I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth.”
Backlash from her remarks led to Rowling being excluded from HBO Max’s recent “20th Anniversary: Return To Hogwarts” special, but she’s clearly unafraid of the professional consequences or online criticism that stems from sharing her beliefs.
“Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness decreeed that “the biggest threats of violence against women has always been cis gender men,” in a scathing response.
“Not trans women, unless Jk’s constant transphobic cherry picked vitriol convinces you otherwise,” he wrote. “But as trans women are assaulted, deprived of work, killed, and raped JK is safe in her mansion.”
“Why does it sound like you’re more upset about trans people than rapists?” Questioned transgender “Supergirl” actress Nicole Maines. “Feels like your priorities are wrong here, babe.”
“Love is peace. Freedom is acceptance. Understanding is strength. Trans women are not a danger to society,” replied British artist Daniel Lismore. “J.K Rowling loves to fuel hate towards a whole group of innocent beautiful people.”
Former “General Hospital” star Ingo Rademacher, who was axed from the long-running soap after refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine, has filed a civil suit against ABC over the network’s denial of his religious exemption.
“I am entitled to a religious exemption against mandatory vaccination for Covid-19 on the basis of my deeply and sincerely held moral belief that my body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me and that its natural integrity cannot ethically be violated by the administration of artificially created copies of genetic material, foreign to nature and experimental,” he wrote in October when applying for the exemption.
“Questioning the sincerity of one’s religious beliefs in order to deny a request for an exemption to the Covid Vaccine Mandate constitutes religious discrimination and violates federal and state civil rights laws,” the filing reads.
Sony Pictures Television confirmed on Monday that “The Dr. Oz Show” was ending its 13 season run due to TV’s top doctor’s entrance into Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race.
The cardiothoracic surgeon announced his candidacy at the end of November. “I’m running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania because America needs a Conservative Republican to cure what’s wrong with Washington,” he captioned a Twitter video that garnered more than 2.1 million views.
Another Oz will fill the vacancy left behind by the long-running health advice show. Dr. Oz’s daughter Daphne Oz will co-host a food show called “The Good Dish,” with “Top Chef” judge Gail Simmons and “Next Food Star” winner Jamika Pessoa.
Jana Duggar spoke out about endangering the welfare of a child, after her charges were exposed amid older brother Josh Duggar’s child pornography guilty verdict.
“I prefer a more private life, but I know my last name means that everything we do is open to public criticism and interest, especially during this time,” she wrote in an Instagram Story on Tuesday.
“I was babysitting a few months ago when one of the children wandered outside alone. A passerby who saw the child called the police. This resulted in a written citation, as well as a follow-up with child welfare who concluded that it was an accident and the child was unharmed,” she explained.
Duggar noted that she was “never arrested” despite the media’s implications that she had been, and was “thankful” the situation “ended safely.”
“They recognized it was a case of a child slipping out of the house when you turn your back for a moment. It all happened so quickly and was scary,” she concluded. “I am grateful for law enforcement and those who protect and serve our community.”
Reality star and former rapper Flavor Flav was nearly crushed when a massive boulder toppled off a cliff and landed on the hood of his car as he was driving from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
He briefly lost control of his white Audi, but was able to pull over safely, despite the entire right side of his hood taking significant damage. “God is good,” Flav commented, adding that he “came very close to death but is super grateful to be alive.”
