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:

NFL

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was warned, but not fined, by the league for smashing a tablet during his team’s loss to the Saints on Sunday. 

“I can’t throw another Surface or else I get fined. Imagine that. Imagine that,” Brady said in an interview. “I won’t throw another Surface. Although I think it was pretty good marketing for the Surface at the end of the day. I think it worked out pretty well for them.”

“I didn’t want to throw an interception with that tablet so I made sure it hit the ground. It was out of use. There was no chance of that one being used after I got a hold of that tablet.”

Brady said he was “pretty pissed” at the time, and even appeared to tell the Saints defensive coordinator to “Go f–k yourself” after throwing an interception. 

“Oh, we were just exchanging pleasantries,” he remarked. “It was a nice night in Tampa. We were just wonderfully, in the heat of the moment, expressing, uh, I wouldn’t say pleasantries, but we were very competitive in that moment. It was emotional. So that’s just football players being football players.”

Outside of Brady’s tantrum, the NFL has recently changed their COVID-19 protocols to reflect the CDC’s recently updated guidelines. 

The league revised their quarantine rules from 10 days down to a 5-day isolation period for both vaccinated and unvaccinated players. However, athletes that are fully vaxxed can “test out” of isolation quicker if they come back negative.  

 

Holiday Bowl Blues

North Carolina State football coach Dave Doeren isn’t happy that the NCAA Holiday Bowl was canceled just hours before they were set to kick off against UCLA, over the team’s COVID-19 outbreak. 

Doeren said he “felt lied to, to be honest,” when speaking to the press about the called off game. 

“We felt like UCLA probably knew something was going on, didn’t tell anybody on our side,” he detailed. “We had no clue they were up against that. I don’t feel like it was very well handled from their university. It would have been great to have had a heads-up two or three days ago so we could have found a Plan B. Disappointing.”

“Heartbroken to not be able to compete one more time this season,” the team tweeted after the news broke “We were informed a short time ago that our opponent would be unable to play this evening.”

On the flip side, Georgia’s coach said the team has been grappling with COVID ahead of the Orange Bowl, but is ready to play Michigan on Friday. 

“We increased a lot of things around our building and our awareness of our players and understanding what’s going on,” head coach Kirby Smart said. “They’ve really adhered to the policies we’ve asked them to and been able to steer clear for the most part.” 

“We had a little bout the last couple of weeks, when we lost some guys, but we got most of those guys back,” he continued. “The biggest thing is really being at full strength when you have to be, and that’s what we’re aiming toward.”

Postponed

Comedian Joe Rogan confirmed he was forced to cancel his upcoming sold-out show in Canada due to the country’s travel related vaccine mandate. 

“I should probably say this because I haven’t yet. My 4/20 show that’s sold out in Vancouver — I don’t think that’s happening,” Rogan said on his podcast. “I don’t think I can even get into the country. I’m not vaccinated. I’m not gonna get vaccinated. I have antibodies, it doesn’t make any sense.”

The show has been rescheduled for Oct. 24.  

 

No Nudes

Leonardo DiCaprio was not pleased that Meryl Streep decided to strip down for their film “Don’t Look Up,” which was recently released on Netflix.

“She is fearless,” the film’s director Adam Mckay remarked about Streep. “And yes, that is a body double. But you know who had a problem with it? Leo [DiCaprio]. Leo views Meryl as film royalty… although maybe royalty is not a compliment… but as such a special figure in the history of film.”

“He didn’t like seeing her with the lower back tattoo, walking for a second naked,” he continued. “He said something to me like, ‘Do you really need to show that?’ And I was like, ‘It’s President Orlean; it’s not Meryl Streep.’ But she didn’t even blink. She didn’t even bring it up.”

DiCaprio had nothing but praise for Streep’s performance in the movie. “You get to work with the greatest living actor in the world,” he said of the experience. “Everyone’s on their toes. Everyone’s prepared, and we’re just trying to keep up with her.” 

He explained that the movie, which is about a comet hurtling towards Earth, is actually an allegory for climate change and anti-vaxxers. 

“This was originally a metaphor for the climate crisis, and then COVID hit. And then a whole new wave of denial of science. It was amazing to witness what was going on in real time as we were making this movie,” DiCaprio commented. “We’re sitting there trying to explain science as (Dr. Anthony) Fauci was doing the same thing. It was a bizarre experience,” he added.

“If you do a film about climate change, it’s nearly impossible to get people to get a sense of urgency and hold a mirror to our culture and media and politics and all of these things,” DiCaprio continued. 

“And I just felt like this was an incredible gift to be a part of a movie that encapsulated exactly what we’re going through at this particular moment in time.”

Livid

“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker is reportedly “heartbroken” about the sexual assualt accusations against on-screen paramour Chris Noth, but pissed about what the allegations will mean for the show’s reboot “And Just Like That.” 

“She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position,” according to a source. “It is not about the money, but rather her legacy. Carrie was all about helping women and now, under her watch, women are saying that they have been hurt.”

Noth has found a supporter in former co-star Joan Collins, who said, “Who knows what he did?” during a recent interview. “’I know him and I am not going to judge him because who knows who these women are? But his career is wrecked, absolutely wrecked from doing what he did.”

The former “Dynasty” star also spoke out against the dangers of cancel culture. “I don’t worry about it,” she remarked. ”I think it is tragic that people can get canceled for having an opposite opinion to one that is currently en vogue.”

“It is just closing down debates, closing down interesting conversations” Collins continued. “Why should everybody feel the same way about everything? It is very boring really.”

 

Canceled

Speaking of cancel culture, an elementary school in liberal New York has removed the song from the student’s repertoire over the holiday classic’s alleged “potential to be controversial or offensive.”

The decision was reportedly made over a 2017 article by Boston University professor Kyna Hamill, who claimed that the first public performance of the song was possibly performed in 1857 using blackface. 

Hamill was shocked when she learned the school yanked the song. “My article tried to tell the story of the first performance of the song, I do not connect this to the popular Christmas tradition of singing the song now,” she commented, adding that she “in no way, recommended that it stopped being sung by children.”

Residents of Brighton, New York blasted the school’s decision as “liberalism gone amok” and “cancel culture at its finest.”
