Thousands Sign Petition To Deport Piers Morgan, Morgan Says “Bring It On”

Within a mere five days, almost 70,000 Americans have signed a petition calling for the deportation of talk show host Piers Morgan, all due to his beliefs concerning gun control.

Within a mere five days, almost 70,000 Americans have signed a petition calling for the deportation of talk show host Piers Morgan, all due to his beliefs concerning gun control.

Since the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy almost two weeks ago, the British CNN host has aggressively defended his belief of stricter gun laws in America, even calling a gun advocate who appeared on his show an “unbelievably stupid man.”

That comment and others have now gotten Morgan in a bit of trouble with gun activists.  A petition created on December 21 on the White House e-petition website accuses Morgan of engaging in a “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution” and “exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

The petition would only need 25,000 signatures to garner a response from the White House.  At the time of this posting, the number stands at 69,378.

Morgan, however, seems completely immune to the cyber-attacks.  After tweeting the question, “If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?” he retweeted the responses of followers from a number of countries welcoming him, including Malaysia, The Philippines, Australia and Sierra Leone.  He also expressed his disgust with the growing number of shooting deaths over the past few weeks, including the death of two firefighters as they tried to put out a fire this past Monday, writing,

“Americans murdered with assault weapons in movie theaters, temples, schools, shopping malls – now, as they put out fires. Where does it end?  Come on America, ENOUGH: Ban assault weapons & high-capacity magazines, and enforce background checks on 100% of gun sales. Do it now.”

So whose side are you on?  Are you one of the thousands who will be putting their name to the petition, or does citizenship not make a difference to you when it comes to the deaths of innocent thousands every year by gunfire?

John Krasinski Virtually Gathers ‘Hamilton’ Cast To Give A Surprise Performance To A Young Fan

Published

These Broadway stars did not throw away their shot to give one young fan a very memorable birthday surprise.

Everyone’s favorite The Office star, John Krasinski (don’t tell Steve Carrell), has been delivering some good news on his new, appropriately titled  YouTube show, Some Good News. With the world practically in suspended animation due to the coronavirus pandemic, Krasinski is using the platform to share some positivity and provide a distraction from the saturation of bad going on right now. You could even say his shows gives viewers a chance to quiet themselves for a bit…turn their minds into A Quiet Place if you will. Gotta love low-hanging fruit. In any event, the latest episode shows Krasinki delivering some really good news to a young fan who was facing a birthday disappointment.

The nine-year old Aubrey had plans to see the mega hit musical Hamilton for her birthday. And in case you’ve been living in suspended animation for much longer than this quarantine, tickets for the hottest show around are still nearly impossible to come by. Imagine how bummed little Aubrey must have been to find that all theaters have been shut down due to the social distancing guidelines. Well, Krasinski had a way to combat that sadness and brought Hamilton to Aubrey.

Krasinski gathered the cast of Hamilton, including stars like Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry and show creator/star/genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, to give a virtual performance to the young fan via Zoom. The icing on the birthday cake? Krasinski also promised to fly Aubrey out to NYC to see the musical live when all of this is over. See…I told you he was The Office favorite.

Takes minute to take in some good today and watch the video below!

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!
