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:

No Competition

 

NFL legend Brett Favre weighed in on the controversy surrounding New Zealand weightlifting contender Laurel Hubbard, who is the first transgender woman to compete in the Olympics.

“It’s a man competing as a woman. That’s unfair,” the former Green Bay Packers quarterback stated. “ It’s not fair for a man, even if this person wants to be a woman or feels compelled — if you want to become the opposite sex, that’s fine. I got no problem with it.” 

“But you can’t compete against — males cannot compete against females,” he continued. “If I was a true female — I can’t believe I’m saying that — and I was competing in weightlifting and lost to this person, I would be beside myself.”

Guilty

 

Former child actor Drake Bell, of Nickelodeon “Drake & Josh” fame, pleaded guilty to two charges involving a minor in a Cleaveland, Ohio court on Wednesday.

Bell entered a guilty plea to one count of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles and one count of attempted endangering children, and could face up to two years in prison, $6,000 in fines, and up to three years of probation.  

He reportedly engaged in an inappropriate chat that “at times, was sexual in nature,” with a fifteen-year-old victim in late 2017. His court case is set to continue on July 12.   

 

Indy Injured

 

Harrison Ford was injured on the set of his new Indiana Jones flick, as 78-year-old actor reprised his iconic role as the adventuring archaeologist for the fifth time 

“In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder,” A rep for Disney confirmed. “Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.” 

This is Ford’s second injury on a Disney helmed film, he broke his leg while playing Han Solo in 2014’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in an incident with the hydraulic door on the character’s famed ship, the Millenium Falcon.   

 

New Charges

 

Disgraced singer R. Kelly, who was being held in Chicago while awaiting trial for multiple sex abuse charges, has been extradited to federal facility in New York to be tried for federal sex trafficking crimes later this summer.

On August 9, Kelly will go in front of a judge at the Eastern District of New York for a slew of charges including racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, bribery, kidnapping, forced labor, and enticement. He was arrested in 2019 and denied bail during the pandemic.

 

Settled

 

Vanessa Bryant has settled a lawsuit with the helicopter company involved in the helicopter crash that took the lives of her NBA legend husband Kobe and their daughter Gianna, along with seven others.  

“Island Express Helicopters authorized, directed and/or permitted a flight with full knowledge that the subject helicopter was flying into unsafe weather conditions,” the suit alleged. The terms of the settlement are not known.

Bryant also has an invasion of privacy lawsuit going against Los Angeles County that she filed in May after multiple Sheriff’s deputies and LAFD firefighters photographed the crash scene and Bryant’s body, then shared the graphic pictures. 

 

Sexy Beasts?

 

Netflix’s weird new dating show “Sexy Beasts” will get singles to dress up in animal prosthetics and go on blind dates without ever seeing each other’s actual faces. Contestants will appear as a dolphin, owl, beaver, panda, and a mouse while trying to find out if they can fall in love purely based on personality.
