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:


At-home exercise giant Peloton censored the anti-Joe Biden hashtag, “LetsGoBrandon,” on its platform.

Users posted screenshots of the fitness company not allowing them to create variations of the “LetsGoBrandon” hashtag, which they use to connect with people who share similar ideals. 

When stationary cyclists tried to type in versions of the hashtag, they were blocked and shown the message “this tag does not meet our guidelines” and directed to contact Peloton support.

The company has not commented about blocking the less vulgar version of “F**k Joe Biden,” but does have a content policy that strictly forbids “hate, offensive, and obscene speech.”

DUI Death

Ex-Las Vegas Raider Henry Ruggs III filed court documents alleging that firefighters that responded to the deadly crash that claimed the life of 23-year-old Tina Tintor, were to slow to put out the fire in her vehicle. 

“Firemen did not attempt to extinguish the fire at Ms. Tintor’s vehicle for approximately 20 minutes at which time the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames,” his defense attorneys said.  

They have subpoenaed records from the fire department to prove first responders were “in a position to extinguish the vehicle fire while it was in its infancy stages and failed to do so,” after Ruggs, 22, smashed his Corvette into Tintor’s vehicle. 

A Clark County Fire Department spokesman said that there were “no delays in response or in the attack on the fire, and that the “captain on the scene reported that the vehicle was fully involved in fire upon arrival and the passenger compartment was not survivable for anyone inside.” 

Ruggs has been charged with a DUI causing death, felony reckless driving, driving under the influence causing substantial injury, and misdemeanor gun possession. He was released by the Raiders’ organization immediately after the accident.  

Clapping Back

Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy lashed out at Business Insider for publishing a “hit piece” that alleged he had rough sex with young women. 

“They accused me of rape. They say they didn’t. There’s no actual allegations, but if you read it’s like ‘girls running away, Dave won’t stop.’ That’s rape,” he said in a press conference.

Two women referred to as “Allison” and “Madison” in the article, accused him of filming sexual encounters without their knowledge and engaging in violent behavior like spitting and choking them during intercourse.

Allison claimed that Portnoy manipulated her into having aggressive sex, which he called a “bald-faced lie,” and produced direct messages that outlined how the woman approached him for sex and bragged about it to he friends after. 

“They will not accuse me of anything because if they accuse me in a criminal sense, there’s gonna be a criminal investigation and they’re gonna be like ‘you guys are full of sh*t,” he continued.

He also produced screenshots from the other alleged victim, Madison, who seemingly tried to blackmail him by writing that the sex was non consesnsual and asking for money. “This story of me chasing her around and she being like ‘stop I’m crying in pain’ did not happen,” he remarked. 

Portnoy went on to share a video from the only woman who went on record for the article, who appeared to admit that she lied about being sexually assaulted by the dean of her college to get out of class.  

The Barstool president denied ever meeting her and was flabbergasted that she was used as a source. “This is the only girl quoted in the article? Am I taking crazy pills?” he questioned.  

“I got accused of rape. It’s arguably the most horrific thing you can be accused of with 0.0 evidence and they f**king knew it,” he concluded. 



Dave Chappelle sounded off after a screening of his documentary “Untitled,” this week. “All of this month I am going to travel around this country,” he remarked. “I’m going to bring this movie with me. And I’m going to bring this energy with me. The champs are here.”

“F**k everything they say on television,” he added. “Let’s bring the culture back together. It’s all for the culture.”

The “Closer” comedian’s commentary comes after his jokes about the transgender community struck a negative cord with critics last month, who called for Netflix to cancel him.  


“The Young and the Restless” star Jerry Douglas died at the age of 88 on Tuesday, “after a brief illness.”

In addition to starring on the soap as John Abbot, he had roles in “The Rockford Files,” “The Untouchables,” “The Rockford Files,” and “Melrose Place.”

His daytime television co-star Jess Walton shared a touching tribute on social media. “Rest in peace my dear TV husband Jerry Douglas. Thank you for the laughter all those years. Much much love to you and your beautiful family Kim and Hunter and everyone,” she wrote


Actress Rosanna Arquette added her two cents about Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse’s emotional breakdown on the witness stand Tuesday. 

“Rittenhouse the murderer was crying that they were trying to take his AR 15 away from him not that he murdered human beings,” the liberal actress wrote on Twitter Thursday.
