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:

Kanye V. Walmart

Walmart filed a trademark objection against Kanye’s Yeezy brand, claiming its dotted black sun rays are too similar to Walmart’s own yellow sun logo. 

West filed paperwork on Tuesday asking for a dismissal, saying that the big box store “certainly knows, as does the consuming public, that the last thing [Yeezy] wants is to do is associate itself with [Walmart].” 

The week prior West sued Walmart for selling cheap knock-off versions of his distinctly bizarre “Yeezy Foam Runner’s” and “Yeezy Inspired Slides” on the company’s website. West accused the retailer of trying to ride off his coattails by making consumers falsely believe in a partnership between the two brands.  

Walmart denied they were trying to cause “confusion and deception,” and claimed the shoes were sold by independent sellers on their third-party marketplace. The retail giant said they take “allegations like this seriously” and has since removed the associated products.  

 

Charged

Disney Channel star Kyle Massey, of “That’s So Raven,” was charged with a felony for immoral communication with a minor, stemming from a $1.5 million dollar lawsuit that accused him of  sending “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos” to a teenager on Snapchat.  

He denied the accusations and said the reported victim was trying to get “revenge” by filing a criminal case when they learned that he did not have enough money to settle the civil suit.  

“Massey claims that the allegations then and now are extortive. The statements made to the police regarding the accuser’s own counsel’s advice seem peculiar, tearing away the veracity from the stale allegations,” claims his attorney. “The accusers in no hidden agenda attempt to use the Washington courts as a platform for revenge after losing the civil matter.”

“Massey intends to aggressively defend these accusations again and will seek civil damages from those that refuse to hear the facts. We plan to seek an early dismissal finally putting this bad behavior to rest,” his lawyer concluded.

 

Trolled

Aaron Rodgers trash-talked Tom Brady on Twitter ahead of their charity golf game “The Match.” Rodgers and pro partner Bryson DeChambeau will take on Brady and Phil Mickelson on Monday.  

The Green Bay Packers QB hilariously committed to studying Brady’s golf game from last year in a series of clips he narrated.  

“Here’s Tommy on the green, first hole, and he actually rolls it in. Really, really proud of you Tom,” Rodgers said.  

In another clip he mocked the Tampa Bay Bucs’ QB for getting ready for a high-five, before pulling back. “Yup, air high-five. COVID,” Rodgers quipped. “See a little slow-mo replay here. They’re still pretty lame.” 

Brady joined in on the fun last month by posting multiple meme’s making fun of Rodgers and DeChambeau.  

 

Fan Backlash

“Star Wars” fans were enraged after Disney changed intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett’s iconic ship name from “Slave-1” to the woke alternative “Starship.” The name switch was quietly announced by LEGO “Star Wars” designer Michael Lee Stockwell, when a new 478-piece set of Boba Fett’s ship was recently released.

“We’re not calling it ‘Slave I’ anymore, everybody is [dropping the name],” he said. “It’s probably not something which has been announced publicly, but it is just something that Disney doesn’t want to use anymore.”

Boba Fett Actor Mark Anthony Austin expressed his dismay in a tweet. “My ship will forever be Slave1. Nothing. Not even #disney can or will change that.”

RIP

The WWE confirmed on Thursday that Del “The Patriot” Wilkes died of a heart attack at 59. The All-American collegiate wrestler joined the WWE in 1997 and was known for his on-air rivalry with star Bret Hart.

After retiring due to a triceps injury, Wilkes fell into a painkiller addiction that spiraled into more than 20 arrests between 1998 and 2007. He was charged with domestic assault in 1999 and served 9 months in prison in 2002 for fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers.  

 

Fallout

After Britney Spears’ powerful court testimony, wealth management company Bessemer Trust has requested to withdraw from their position as a financial co-conservator alongside her father Jamie Spears.

“As a result of the conservatee’s testimony at the June 23 hearing, however, Petitioner has become aware that the Conservatee objects to the continuance of her Conservatorship and desires to terminate the conservatorship. Petitioner has heard the Conservatee and respects her wishes,” the company said in a court filing. 

Defensive Wounds

Comedian Andy Dick claims the brawl he got into with his lover was self-defense because his leg was broken. 

“He body-slammed my leg,” Dick said. “My femur got broken and my ankle got shattered and the tendons and ligaments on the other side are ripped off the bone.”

The actor was arrested last weekend for assault with a deadly weapon when he attacked his boyfriend Lucas Crawford with a metal chair. His representative claims Crawford came to Andy’s apartment in a bad mood and began a play fight that quickly escalated.  

“Andy got defensive and scared and tried to limp away from him,” the rep says. “That’s when he grabbed the nearest chair and threw it in Lucas’ direction. The corner of the chair made contact [with Crawford].”

“I was limping and it hurt and then we got into another fight and I threw a chair. He just has a little cut. I am in a cast,” Dick alleged. “We wrestled and it got; he’s just too strong. He is stronger than me.”
