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:
Legendary actor Clint Eastwood won a $6.1 million lawsuit against a Lithuanian CBD company who used his likeness on its THC-less cannabis products on Friday.
A California judge ordered Lithuania’s Mediations UAB to pay the substantial sum to Eastwood and his company Garrapata, cover their $95,000 in legal fees, and never use his name or image again.
The “Cry Macho” star filed two lawsuits against the company for using his likeness in a fabricated interview that made it appear as if he endorsed their products in 2020.
The actor did lose a judgment that alleged he was defamed by the company. “It requires additional context to understand what CBD products and why a person like Clint Eastwood would not endorse a marijuana-based product,” the District Court judge wrote.
Golden State Warriors star Andrew Wiggins finally caved and got vaccinated after the NBA announced that players who were forced to sit out of home games in markets where there are local vaccine mandates, which includes his team’s hometown San Francisco, would not be paid for the match-ups they missed.
“The only options were to get vaccinated or not play in the NBA,” Wiggins said Monday. “It was a tough decision. Hopefully, it works out in the long run and in 10 years I’m still healthy.”
“It feels good to play, but getting vaccinated, that’s going to be something that stays in my mind for a long time,” he continued. “It’s not something I wanted to do, but I was forced to.”
The shooting guard was recently denied a religious exemption from getting the jab by the NBA, but is not holding a grudge against the team’s management.
“They didn’t make the rule,” Wiggins said. “But I guess to do certain stuff, to work, I guess you don’t own your body. That’s what it comes down to. If you want to work in society today, then I guess they made the rules of what goes in your body and what you do.
“Hopefully, there’s a lot of people out there that are stronger than me and keep fighting, stand for what they believe, and hopefully, it works out for them,” he concluded.

“Friends” alum Jennifer Aniston chose to voice her opinion about Texas’ new heartbeat abortion law in an Instagram story, by sharing a meme from her hit show where her character Rachel tells David Schwimmer’s Ross, “no uterus, no opinion,” captioning the episode GIF, “I repeat… no uterus, no opinion.”
In a follow-up, she wrote: “Keep fighting,” above an image of a woman holding a sign that read: “Texas won’t make a 12-year-old wear a mask to school, but they will force her to have a baby”.
In another photo, a woman held a poster that read: “Texas: where a virus has reproductive rights, and a woman doesn’t.”
“Firefly” star Adam Baldwin replied to a story about her post that said, “Extrapolating this logic: ‘No combat experience, No opinion on war.’”

Captain Kirk will finally get to go to space and ex-Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is going to be the one to fly him up, up, and away. Earlier this week, Bezos announced that “Star Trek” star William Shatner, 90, will shoot off into space on October 12th’s next Blue Origin launch.
“[Shatner] has long wanted to travel to space and will become the oldest person to have flown to space,” the company said in a Monday press release.
“I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” said Shatner.
He will be joined by Blue Origin executive Audrey Powers, Chris Boshuizen, and Glen de Vries on the mission. “So now I can say something. Yes, it’s true; I’m going to be a ‘rocket man!’” Shatner posted.

Playboy’s October 2021 digital cover will feature a man in a bunny costume traditionally worn by the magazine’s Playmates, rather than a woman.
“It’s Bretman, bitch,” the company captioned a Twitter post that reveals 23-year-old male influencer Bretman Rock strutting his guy stuff in women’s lingerie and heels in a video.
Rock is a gay Philipino Youtuber that has gained a more than 8 million fan following for makeup tutoriorials, and has his own cosmetics line.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg took a $6 billion beating when his company’s stock plummeted when flagship Facebook and spinoff’s Instagram and WhatsApp went dark on Monday.
Facebook’s stock tumbled 4.89% from $335.50 a share to $326.23 by day’s close. Luckily for Zuck, the stock price rebounded to $332.96 by end of day Tuesday.
The company has also recently been damaged by a whistleblower’s accusations that the social platform knows users are being harmed by their services, but cares more about their bottom line than their three billion customer’s mental health.
The former product manager also alleged that Facebook turned off safety measures on the app intended to lessen discord and hostility prior to the 2020 election, but flipped them back on when it was over. “That feels like a betrayal of democracy to me,” she said.
