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.

Hilaria

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.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
