American Horror Story Homeowners Sue Over Invasive Fans

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 07:03:50 GMT

Owners of the Murder House from American Horror Story are suing the former owners for not disclosing that the house was a tourist-trap for obsessive fans of the series. The couple, who installed a fence to keep the visitors out, have compiled video evidence of the ways fans have encroached on their privacy. One teenage fan was filmed sitting on the porch of the manor, having scaled the chain-link fence, breezily swinging his legs while listening to John Mayer's "Say What You Need to Say" on speakers. In another video, three teenage girls were literally lifted in a dumpster by a garbage truck to get a clear view of the house.

ONTD Original: Superheroes that could come out of the closet soon...

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 07:03:04 GMT

So we're here, we're queer but big companies refuse to acknowledge us. Big studios and Networks usually deny character's sexualities if they're not straight, but that should change soon. Here's a list of some characters with potential to have a decent mainstream LGBT stories.Captain AmericaChances of coming out of the closet: 2/10 WHAT? HOW COULD STEVE BE GAY? HE'S KAPTAIN AMURRICUHH!!! Well, having the character that represents America be gay could be a great gesture towards acceptance. Also, we all know about his relationship with Bucky, so him going gay for Bucky is not much of a stretch... Will studios agree? idts... WolverineChances of coming out of the closet: 3/10 Chances of Hugh Jackman portraying Wolverine again: 1/10 Hugh Jackman is a huge homosexual....marriage supporter, so we know he'd be up for it. Having such a big profile superhero as Wolverine come out of the closet would be great for visibility. Also, Wolverine is canonically gay in an alt!universe in the X-men comics so... GambitChances of coming out of the closet: 4/10 Chances of Gambit actually having a movie: -10/10 Chances of Potato Tatum playing a gay Gambit: -10000/10 Gambit is known for being bisexual. He has a flirty attitude and he's quite sexy, two traits that combine into the attractive idea of a guy everyone finds hot, who finds everyone sexy. Wonder WomanChances of coming out of the closet as a lesbian: 2/10 Chances of coming out of the closet as bisexual: 4/10 Chances of casually dropping she once fooled around with a girl but doesn't remember much about it, but dropping enough hints to make fans lose their minds: 7/10 THE WOMAN HAS BEEN LIVING 38974938749374 YEARS IN A FREAKING ISLAND WITH ONLY WOMEN. GIMME A BREAK?!!! She has tried pussy, more than once, deal with it! EVEN SNL HAD A SKIT ABOUT IT!!!Harley QuinnChances of coming out of the closet: 5/10 MARGOT. ROBBIE. AS. A. LESBIAN. YASSSS. Harley Quinn and her sexy crazy self need to go all Ellen Degeneres on her Suicide Flop team ASAP. Imagine The Joker's reaction?! Also, she's been linked to Poison Ivy in the comics. DeadpoolChances of coming out of the closet: 2/10 Chances of doing a bisexual joke about his past: 8/10 Deadpool is known to be bisexual. He fucks everything with a zip code. Will he ever come out and leave Morena Baccarin? Doubt it. Will he joke about how much he loves to feel Colossus' dick? probably... EggsyChances of coming out of the closet: 3/10 Chances of Taron coming out of the closet: 5/10 Chances Taron and Hugh are having an affair: 10/10 Kingsman could use some good publicity and Eggsy could put his anal loving skills to good use. Taron and Hugh are having a Hollywood affair so it shouldn't be that hard for Taron Egerton... Green LanternChances of coming out of the closet: 5/10 Chances of Green Lantern having a proper reboot with DC/WB: 0/10 One of the Green Lanterns has been canonically gay, so if DC ever decides to stop fucking around, have some decent storylines and reboot this with a gay lead and a non-cgi suit, we'll be here... RobinChances of coming out of the closet: 6/10 i mean, do we really need him to come out at this point? There's a new Teen Titans TV show in the works, so maybe they could actually make this happen... who knows. Ayo and OkoyeChances of coming out of the closet: 4/10 WE LITERALLY JUST HAD A POST ABOUT IT!!! SERIOUSLY MARVEL!!! I MEAN...RLY?Wally West/Kid FlashChances of coming out of the closet: 7/10 Wally is single and ready to mingle and moving to a new show, there's a lot of stuff they could do with him and the actor playing him just came out, so this is the time to explore bisexual Wally!Bobby Drake/IcemanChances of coming out of the closet: 8/10 If studios actually wanna go with a gay superhero Bobby is the way to go, he's known, but not known enough so they [...]

Lil Pump arrested and charged with discharging a firearm inside a dwelling

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 04:18:41 GMT

17 year old soundcloud rapper Lil Pump was recently arrested and booked into juvie after firing a gun in his home.

Lil Pump, who frequently uses the n-word despite not being black, told the police "three black men" tried to rob him and shot through his front door. When they arrived, they found him inside smoking weed. The cops quickly figured out he was lying when they saw that the shots came from inside the house, not outside.

His mother is being investigated for child endangerment and leaving an unsecured firearm in a residence with a minor.

They took his weed because he's underage.

He told a pap on his way to the car after being released that he has rich lawyers, showed off his ankle monitor, and did a verse of his hit song "Gucci Gang" while replacing some of the words with 'house arrest'.

NYCB independent investigation “can’t corroborate” assault from Peter Martins

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 01:00:07 GMT

New York City Ballet's investigation of Peter Martins has failed to corroborate accusations of sexual harassment or physical abuse, according to a statement— New York Times Arts (@nytimesarts) February 16, 2018 I interrupt this beautiful Black Panther weekend for these disgusting news.This is a follow up to my Ballet posts here and here. I’ve shared all the background there, so you can refer back if you haven’t heard but the short version is this:- Peter Martins, former director of the New York City Ballet and the School of American Ballet was accused of assault, sexual harassment and other incidents through an anonymous letter to the board of the company. - The board hires a law firm to conduct an independent investigation.- Many, many dancers come out with distressing stories of abuse, in multiple instances, over different stages of their careers at NYCB/SAB, taking place in many different years. Many of them speak to the investigating law firm and discuss the ways in which it’s evident that it’s not impartial and not treating victims properly while also not making the investigation records open to those interviewed. - The vice chairman of the board, Sarah Jessica Parker wears #TimesUp movement button, pays lip service to the initiative and donates.Last Thursday, the board announces that the investigation is over and here are the results:-The board announces that the investigation interviewed 77 dancers and that the allegations were not corroborated. The Chairman of the board claims everyone was encouraged to speak and that’s the result. I sure would love to read this fair and appropriate report that they won't be releasing to the public— Chloe Angyal (@ChloeAngyal) February 17, 2018 - Writers, critics and fans remark that if the investigation is so pure and transparent, it should be released. The board does not release the investigation.- Victor Ostrovsky, one of the dancers who came forward, told the NYTimes: “They weren’t able to prove through witnesses anything? That just doesn’t make sense. I was on stage with a bunch of kids — they all knew what happened.” - Kelly Cass Boal, another former NYCB dancer who accused Martins of abuse, wife of Pacific Northwest Ballet director, Peter Boal told the NYTtimes, about talking to the investigator: “felt like she was trying to make it sound like what I’m saying is false. They were doing the investigation just to say what they’re saying right now.”-Some dancers come, as expected with problematic statements no one asked for, like Megan Fairchild who told the NYTimes: “This is what I thought would happen, because that’s the experience that I had, so I’m not surprised at all.” She added, “I felt that when he was leaving it was a sad thing and a shame and that we would not be our best company.”-Despite this statement, Megan has been proved wrong, as NYTimes critic Alastair Macaulay wrote just a few days ago and Singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton weighed in with a great opinion:All Martins ballet should be pulled from the rep. Yet another thing the board sleeps on. (Perhaps because they were all chosen by Martins.)— Vanessa Carlton (@VanessaCarlton) February 15, 2018 - NYTimes claims many dancers who came forward have claim to expect better from NYCB board vice chair and ‘busy talking about how she and Kim Catrall are or aren’t enemies’ Sarah Jessica Parker, to do better, as she has publicly supported the #TimesUp campaign, so SJP talked over text with th[...]

J.J. Abrams: "Last Jedi" backlash won't affect Episode IX

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 23:10:26 GMT

“‘Star Wars’ is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you want to in ‘Star Wars.' If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in ‘Star Wars.’ You can probably look at the first movie that George [Lucas] did [‘Star Wars: A New Hope’] and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that.”

On if the outcry would affect the upcoming film: “Not in the least. There’s a lot that I would like to say about it, but I feel like it’s a little early to be having the ‘Episode IX’ conversation … I will say that the story of Rey and Poe and Finn and Kylo Ren — and if you look, there are three men and one woman, to those that are complaining that there are too many women in ‘Star Wars’ — their story continues in a way that I couldn’t be more excited about and cannot wait for people to see.”

Florence Kasumba addresses BP's lack of Queer Representation

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 20:47:29 GMT

  • Florence Kasumba portrays Ayo, one of the Dora Milaje that serve as King T'Challa's personal guard in Black Panther. Having previously appeared in Captain America: Civil War, the character was expected to have a major role in this film.

  • In the comic books, Ayo has a romantic relationship with Okoye, who is portrayed in this film by Danai Gurira, and a Vanity Fair reporter claimed that she saw footage of Ayo and Okoye flirting with each other. However, the footage was cut for unknown reasons (you know why).

  • Florence was asked about the relationship between Okoye and Ayo, and she revealed she had read the World of Wakanda comic book. "The thing is, if the makers would have wanted everyone to see the scene, it would have been in the movie. The final result that we’ve seen, there were a few scenes that have been cut. Different scenes, also. They didn’t make it into the movie for certain reasons, and at that point, I have to say: What their reason is, I can’t tell you, because nobody told me about whether it’s in or not."

  • She did mention that she would like to see it play out eventually. "I’d love to, at some point. Not now, because it’s too soon. At this point, the focus is somewhere else. I started reading World of Wakanda towards the end of filming and I loved reading the comics. I loved reading about, Okay, how do the Doras become Doras? … That’s the whole reason why we had a boot camp [to train for the movie]: In order to be physically able to move as a unit. That was more important. That’s what I’m saying, right? Who is in love with whom and whatever — that was not important in this movie."
