Donald Trump Is a Rancid, Petty, Narcissistic Little Man
So, not only does Johnny Depp look like shit, he’s allegedly charging some fans $1,000 to take a photo with him. Looking like that? No thanks! (Lainey)
Paramount TV has yanked the Heathers TV show, even though the first season had been completed and the writers’ room had already finished writing the second season. This may sound contrarian, but this whole thing kind of makes me want to see it more, because look: The original Heathers couldn’t have opened in this climate, which makes me think — at the very least — that the TV show captured the vibe and tone of the original. (DListed)
If you haven’t seen the video of Clayne Crawford being a total asshole on the set of Lethal Weapon, it will probably dash any hopes that this was all blown out of proportion. It was not. It doesn’t sound like Damon Wayans was exactly a peach to work with, but at least he wasn’t screaming at children. (Celebitchy)
Olivia Munn has (mostly) managed to avoid showing her bra! (GFY)
Jon Stewart warns Samantha Bee not to fall into the right’s trap by apologizing (he is not wrong). (The Mary Sue)
About half the trailer for Wreck-It-Ralph 2 looks like great fun. The other half looks like the Emoji Movie. (FSR)
At 7 p.m. tonight, Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from their scheduled visit to the White House tomorrow, because he’s a racist, petty little bitch.
Pennsylvania U.S. Rep. Boyle on President Trump canceling Eagles' visit to the White House:— NBC News (@NBCNews) June 4, 2018
"You even make a championship team visiting the White House all about you. What is wrong with you? Seriously, what condition do you have?"
Let's be clear about something. Donald Trump doesn't give a shit about the national anthem. He's an opportunist who knows that self-proclaimed "patriotic Americans" who have zero clue what the protests are about will applaud this laughable action. He's pandering to voting morons.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) June 4, 2018
Philly City Hall still has their back.
I’m proud of the Eagles on & off the field. Our players represent the diversity of our nation—a nation where we're free to express our opinions. Disinviting them only proves the President is not a true patriot.— Jim Kenney (@PhillyMayor) June 5, 2018
City Hall is always open for a celebration. https://t.co/kU7LZkBNin
Speaking of the NFL, whoa: This is cool. Ava Duvernay is developing a TV series based on Colin Kaepernick’s high-school life. (Shadow and Act)
Reese Witherspoon will be bringing Legally Blonde back for another sequel. (Hypable)
You had ONE job, Disney. (/Film)
As this is one of my favorite sites of late, I’m going to call this the definitive review of Kanye’s new album, ye. (Very Smart Brothas)
There are going to be people who swear this album is a classic and place it as one of Kanye’s best works. Do not trust these people. Never trust a Yeezus freak; these are people who absolutely love Kanye no matter what. This isn’t a bad thing for them; they just do not have an objective bone in their body. Trust me, I’m a blogger.

The White House “Fact Sheet” on Trump’s first 500 days in office is “rank authoritarian propaganda published on the White House website.” (Shakesville)
From beginning to end, this fishing segment on a local news broadcast in Australia goes completely, hilariously wrong.
Before getting into her review of Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace, jkbuscher wants to acknowledge that Atwood herself is problematic. However, as a gifted writer, Atwood creates a complex narrative that leaves the reader uncertain if Grace is mad or gets away with murder. "I continue to be drawn to the long history of how our mental health as women is weaponized against us &/or used to control us." Who are your favorite problematic authors? (Cannonball Read 10)
Jesus, these people.
