After Alec Baldwin Tweets Homophobic Slurs At Reporter, Some Cry Foul Over Inconsistencies In Public Backlash.

Alec Baldwin hurled homophobic slurs at a British reporter who accused Baldwin’s wife of tweeting about wedding presents while she was at James Gandolfini’s funeral. Now critics are drawing comparisons to the Paula Deen scandal, raising questions about whether the media and society are selective about who gets a pass on improper language.

Alec Baldwin Hilaria ThomasAlec Baldwin hurled a few homophobic slurs at a British reporter who accused Baldwin’s wife of tweeting about wedding presents while she was at James Gandolfini’s funeral. Then, after the tirade, he shut down his twitter account.

Baldwin, whose temper is notorious, and who seems apparently infallible from backlash after numerous public tantrums both online and in recorded messages (remember when he called his daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig” on her voicemail?) seems to always bounce back with little or no effort or public scrutiny.

Here’s what happened:
Baldwin and wife Hilaria Thomas went to James Gandolfini’s funeral on Thursday.

At some point, Hilaria tweeted about wedding presents and TV appearances. Just WHEN she did that is being disputed by both sides.

British reporter George Stark (From the Daily Mail… which loves a good juicy scandal)  insists the tweets were posted during the funeral, citing that if that’s the case, it’s in poor taste. He cited:

  • Service for the Sopranos star started at 10am at a Catholic church in New York
  • Hilaria posted tweets at 9.53am, 10.17am and 11.09am

Alec Baldwin was not pleased. He turned to twitter to defend his wife. He started by calling him a “lying little bitch,” a “toxic Brit,” and then continued:

“If put my foot up your f**king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much,” one tweet read.

“I’m gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f**k you… up,” he added.

Baldwin insists his wife’s tweets were instead made after the New York City service:

“My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friends funeral. Now, f**k this twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth.”

According to FOXNEWS: “this is not Baldwin’s first tech-based tirade. He was thrown off an airplane in 2011 for refusing to turn his phone off while playing Words With Friends. And following a Feburary altercation with a newspaper photographer, Baldwin reportedly made racist remarks, calling him a “coon” and a “crackhead.””

Several media outlets are crying foul over Baldwin’s numerous (and recent) tirades… citing a hypocrisy among those that seemingly give Baldwin ‘a pass’ after consistently offensive language, while Paula Deen, whose recent scandal involves inappropriate language from decades ago, yet despite apologies, has struggled to recover.

Dan And Eugene Levy Announce That Next Season Of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Will Be It’s Last

Published

on

Well ain’t this some real, sad Schitt…

Very few television shows gain popularity over time which is why I am astonished by the news that Schitt’s Creek will be ending after next season! It’s got charm. It’s got wit. It’s got heart. Not to mention outstanding performances by LITERALLY everyone in the cast. Ugh, I’m more upset than a disgruntled pelican.

I guess we should all take comfort in knowing that the show is ending on the terms of  co-creators (and stars) Dan Levy and Eugene Levy. Just moments ago they released an official statement announcing their renewal for a 6th and final season. In the statement they express their gratitude for being given “the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with the final chapter that [they] had envisioned from the very beginning.”

To Our Dear Fans…

A post shared by Dan Levy (@instadanjlevy) on

Over the course of it’s five seasons, Schitt’s Creek has been praised by fans and critics alike for their hysterical yet positive storylines. Dan Levy, whose character is identifies as pansexual, has been clear since the show’s beginning that the world of Schitt’s Creek is a tolerant one that is free of bias and homophobia. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed and then snot-cried on my couch while watching this show!

There are three more episodes of season 5 of Schitt’s Creek to still be aired with a final fourteen episodes airing sometime in 2020. Seventeen episodes doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for a proper bereavement to deal with this Schitt-y news but I guess we will have to make do.

QUESTION: Did You Know Cole Sprouse Could Sing?!?

Published

on

All those years on Disney and never once did we see Cole Sprouse belt out a few bars but now the bruiting teenager suddenly wants to sing?!

You know Cole Sprouse. He was on Friends as Ross’ son, Ben. He was in the Adam Sandler hit, Big Daddy. He and his twin brother, Dylan, even starred as the titular roles in the Disney channel original series, The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. I can’t tell you which one is which because the twin thing has always confused me.

Nevertheless, Cole has grown up quite a bit and is now starring in the wildly popular, CW hit Riverdale. The series is a dark twist on the old Archie comic books and Cole plays the social outcast, Jughead Jones. Last night was the show’s second annual musical episode and this time they paid homage to Heathers: The Musical. Jughead didn’t so much as hum one note in last years musical so fans were SHOOK when he had an entire duet with co-star Lili Reinhart last night! The pair sang a beautiful rendition of “Seventeen” along with Vanessa Morgan and Madelaine Petsch…which is surprising because no of us knew that Cole could sing!

Of Cole’s hidden talent, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa  said “Cole and I talked about it a while ago and I said, ‘How do you feel about musicals and stuff?’ He basically said, ‘Listen, I never sang for Disney. It would take a lot.’” This might be a new avenue in Cole’s career, however, as he sings in his new movie Five Feet Apart as well. Well color me surprised! Good job hiding this suite talent, Cole!

Riverdale airs on The CW Wednesdays at 8p EST.

Lee Daniels Speaks Out On The ‘Pain, Anger, Sadness And Frustration’ Surrounding The Jussie Smollett Scandal

Published

on

Although never mentioned by name, it’s clear that Empire creator, Lee Daniels, is still processing “the freaking roller coaster” Jussie Smollett has put him through.

Lee Daniels took to Instagram on Wednesday night to speak out about the Jussie Smollett scandal. The caption to the video states that Lee was “in [his] feelings last week,” alluding to the further developments surrounding the case. In the video, after brushing his teeth, Lee takes a moment to address the fact that Jussie is still appearing in new episodes of the hit show because they were filmed prior to “the incident.” In the wake of the allegations, the show has released a statement confirming the fact that Jussie has been written out of the last two episodes of the season. Lee’s pain and frustration stems from something deeper than character arcs as he told his followers “this is not what the show was made for. This show was made to bring America together to talk about the atrocities that are happening right now in the streets.”

On January 29th, Jussie made claims that he was the victim to a racially-motivated attack. After an extensive investigation, Chicago police believe that the alleged attack was fake. Since being charged, Jussie has pleaded not guilty on 16 felony counts for allegedly making false statements to police. Jussie also denies claims that he faked the ordeal due to his dissatisfaction with his salary. No word on whether Jussie will return to Empire next season as of yet.
