Kirk Cameron’s ‘Growing Pains’ Dad: Kirk Needs A Spanking.

Who would ever have thought the “Growing Pains” family’s deepest family woes would be decades after the show ended production. Now Kirk Cameron’s TV family seem to think the actor should be grounded. Or as Alan Thicke would put it – spanked – for his hateful remarks.

Family Feud.

Who would ever have thought the “Growing Pains” family’s deepest family woes would be decades after the show ended production. Now Kirk Cameron’s TV family seem to think the actor should be grounded. Or as Alan Thicke would put it – spanked – for his hateful remarks.

Cameron, the former Growing Pains star, is in damage control mode (more on that below) after making controversial statements about homosexuality on CNN”s Piers Morgan show… calling homosexuality “unnatural,” and adding, “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Alan Thicke, who played Cameron’s TV dad from Growing Pains, responded on Twitter, “I’ll address kirk’s comments as soon as I recover from rush limbaugh’s” and “I’m getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can’t be expected to explain everything.” He later tweeted, “I love Kirk but I may have to spank him…’tho not in a gay way!”

Tracy Gold, who played Cameron’s “Growing Pains” sister, also did some tweeting, writing: “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all.”

Other celebrities responded to the controversy as well – including “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, rock star Nikki Sixx and Roseanne Barr. Barr described Cameron “an accomplice to murder with his hate speech.”

Cameron has since begun the process of unsticking his foot from his mouth, but not quite so successfully. In an email to ABC News.

Says Cameron:

“I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people.”

“I should be able to express moral views on social issues … especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.”

“I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect,” he said, before adding, “I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally).”

GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, responded to the email appropriately:

“Saying that gay people are ‘detrimental to civilization’ might be ‘loving’ in Kirk Cameron’s mind, but it’s gay youth and victims of bullying who truly suffer from adults like Cameron who espouse these ideas … Obviously, Cameron has the right to recite his anti-gay talking points, just like fair-minded Americans have the right to tell him that his views are harmful and have no place in modern America.”

I disagree vehemently with all of Kirk Cameron’s sentiments. As sad as his remarks are, if there is anything I can gain from what he said, it is this: the knowledge, awareness and ability to refuse to watch any single project he works on or contribute to the success of any organizaiton, program or entity that hires him.

Ben Platt Performs A Choral Beyoncé Cover And Of Course It’s Amazing

Published

on

Like Queen B said if you got it, flaunt it.

He made you cry in Dear Evan Hansen. He made you laugh in Pitch Perfect. And lately he has just been impressing the hell out of us with his viral videos. Ben Platt has got some golden pipes and always delivers big feels when he sings. Just a few days ago, Ben and the cast of Dear Evan Hansen went viral for their at home performance of “You Will Be Found,” which I may or may not still be misty eyed from. Well, Ben has gone viral again but this time it won’t provoke tears…unless they are tears of happiness because you never thought a Beyoncé song could get any better yet here we are. Ben and his pal tik-took to TikTok to share a choral version of Beyoncé’s hit song “Check On It.” The duo absolutely nails the cover and my only complaint is that the performance isn’t long enough. How can we convince Ben to do a choral reprisal of Beyoncé’s entire Coachella performance?!

Check out the impressive video below!

If the Barefoot Contessa says any hour is cocktail hour then who are we to argue?!

Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa herself, took to Instagram to “keep tradition alive” during these stressful, isolated times. What tradition is she most concerned with? One near and dear to all of us of course, cocktail hour! In the two-minute video, Ina gives a tutorial on how to whip up a batch of her favorite cosmopolitans. We all watch the contessa for her signature brand of calm speaking tones and party planning panache and while this video delivers on what we’d expect, Ina throws in a couple funny jokes that you would never see coming. She begins the tutorial by instructing viewers to grab a big pitcher because “you never know who is going to stop by – wait – nobody is going to stop by.” She goes on later to remind viewers that “during a crisis, you know, cocktail hour can be almost any hour.”  Ina wraps up the demonstration by advising viewers to choose the right martini glass when making this drink before pulling out a giant one for herself! Look at Ina getting all loosey-grey-goosey with us!

Enjoy any-hour happy-hour and check out the funny video below!
