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:
In a series of tweets, comedian Rob Schneider denounced the COVID-19 vaccine and told his followers they shouldn’t get the jab.
“Just say no… And keep saying no… Over half of the U.S. population is continuing to say no to this unapproved experimental gene therapy! ‘My body, my choice!'” Schneider tweeted, along with the hashtag, “2nd Amendment Is For This.”
He engaged with his followers about their reasons for refusing the vaccine and sounded off about the Biden administration’s door-to-door push to provide inoculation information to holdouts.
“Our Government has told us they plan on going to OUR FRONT DOOR with this,” he exclaimed. “They have lied, had a 2-year fear campaign and lockdown, destroyed middle-class household incomes, bankrupted untold thousands of businesses, and are now putting children’s lives at risk.”

MTV’s “Jackass” proved that the series can get older and still manage to avoid getting wiser when a stunt went seriously wrong. The show was filming a segment for Discovery’s “Shark Week,” when series star Sean McInerney jumped a wakeboard over shark-infested waters and botched his landing.
McInerney was bitten on the hand so deeply that it caused tendon and artery damage. “He would be f–king dead if they didn’t dive on him as fast as they did,” co-star Steve-O said. “Jesus, he got wrecked by a shark … for a ‘Shark Week’ episode.”
The injured thrill-seeker was seemingly unfazed by the incident. “I knew there was a chance I was going to get bit by a shark, but I didn’t think it was going to happen,” McInerney said. “I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinnertime.”
An Ohio judge sentenced Nickelodeon star Drake Bell to two years of probation after he pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal charges involving a minor. He was also slapped on the wrist with 200 hours of community service to be carried out in California, a sex offender status, and a ban from contacting his victim.
“Today I accept this plea because my conduct was wrong. I’m sorry that the victim was harmed in any way — that was obviously not my intention,” Bell told the court. “I have taken this matter very very seriously, and again I just want to apologize to her and anyone else who may have been affected by my actions.”
His 19-year-old victim, who was 15 at the time accused Bell of being a pedophile in a victim impact statement, for sending her “blatantly” sexual photos and messages.
“The pain that the defendant has caused me is indescribable, and it worsens every day,” she said. “Being used by somebody who meant the world to me has left me feeling more hurt than I have ever been before.”
WWE star Paul Orndorff, known as “Mr. Wonderful,” died at the age of 71 after suffering from dementia caused by repeated head injuries that resulted in chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
Orndorff rose to fame in the WWE as Hulk Hogan’s main rival of the 1980s and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
“Many will remember his intensity. But if I could only get you to understand and see his heart. He will always be Pop, Paw Paw, and Daddy at home,” Travis Orndorff wrote about his father. “And as much as many of you hated him as a wrestler, he absolutely loved you for it. He was an amazing father that showed me more love than I ever deserved. I love you Daddy.”
Embattled former Disney star Kyle Massey, who is accused of engaging in “immoral” contact with a 13-year-old minor in December 2018, failed to appear at his court date on Monday. As a result, a Seattle judge issued a $100,000 warrant for his arrest.
Prosecutors allege that Massey sent sexually explicit material to the girl on social media platform Snapchat, and the girl’s mother claims that Massey knew that she was underage, since has reportedly known her since the age of four.
Massey has said that the family was trying to extort him with their claims. “No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct,” he commented.
Prince William came to the defense of Black soccer players on England’s national team, who were being harassed after losing Sunday’s Euro Championship game against Italy, but received online flack for failing to defend his sister-in-law Meghan Markle of the same racist attacks.
“I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match,” he posted on Twitter. “It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behavior. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable.”
Twitter critics immediately clapped back against his statement. “Prince William performative ally ship . His words would have legitimate credibility right now if he had condemned racist abuse towards Meghan Markle and Archie. His silence and complicity fueled what he condemn today,” one tweeter accused.
“For years #sussexsquad has been told that we are ‘race baiters’ for highlighting the racism against Meghan Markle. Tonight, seeing the abuse hurled at Saka, Rashford, & Sancho literally proves what we’ve been saying for years,” wrote another.
