Hahaha, Kit Harrington pranked the crap out of Rose Leslie on April Fool’s Day. Oh, dude, sleep with one eye open because she will get you back. Some. Day. - (Buzzfeed)

“Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?” Donna Karan on sexual assault allegations against her friend Harvey Weinstein. An actual “they were asking for it” defense. In 2017. Good god. (Jezebel)

Meanwhile, The Guardian has reached out to a number of men who have worked for Harvey Weinstein — Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Colin Firth, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Russell Crowe, George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Moore, and Martin Scorsese, among others — and none have offered comment yet. I hope they haven’t commented yet because they’re working on very damning, very lengthy indictments of Weinstein. Speak up now, fellas. This isn’t going away. The longer you wait, the worse it will be. (The Guardian)

Meanwhile, not only has Matt Damon not commented, he helped to bury a story on Weinstein’s sleazy ways back in 2004. DAMNIT MATT. This plus the whole Casey Affleck thing? You’re killing me, bro. This is just crushingly disappointing. (Boston Globe)

For what it’s worth, at least Kevin Smith has said something.

A drunk bigot got literally kicked off the subway because New Yorkers have had enough of this shit. - (Gothamist)

There’s a smidge of good news in the case of the ratbastardmotherfucker who abducted and raped, beat, impregnated, and held his step-daughter prisoner for 19 years. He’s been captured and arrested. Hopefully he’ll also be put in a bag with ravenous rats. - (NYPost)

Aaron Carter checked himself out of rehab after only two weeks. He says he’s doing much better (and the pictures show a definite improvement), but I feel like he probably needs more than two weeks of rehab. I mean, I’m not an expert, but I used to watch Intervention on A&E, so I’m pretty close to being an expert. - (Dlisted)

If the terror of our planet overheating, the US government imploding, and the basic stress of adulthood makes it hard for you to fall asleep sometimes, try watching LeVar Burton read Goodnight Moon to Neil deGrasse Tyson. Yeaahhhh, that’s the good stuff. - (Nerdist)

Ohfortheloveof. Ok, so Tyrese is being a big ol’ tittybaby and whining that The Rock ruined The Fast and the Furious franchise and Tyrese is all pissy because HE’S not getting his own spin-off movie and omg, I can’t even believe there are grown-ass adults who act like this in public. ANYway, Vin Diesel has stepped in and is taking The Rock’s side, but really what I took from it is that he signs his IG posts as “Dom”. You guys, I don’t think he can even separate himself from his character anymore. - (Celebitchy)

The first Mrs. Trump said something provocative in an interview and the third Mrs. Trump proved that she has been around Mr. Trump for far too long, because instead of ignoring it, she responded. AGAIN, grown-ass adults. - (Jezebel)

IF they did wear outfits like this on Star Trek, I might start watching it. This is super cute. - (GFY)

Last week it was announced that Kazuo Ishiguro has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Of the Nobel laureates, he is the author most reviewed by Cannonballers, until Neil Gaiman and Rainbow Rowell win, of course. In the announcement, it was noted that Ishiguro "has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world" in his novels. Which novel would you recommend to a new Ishiguro reader? (Cannonball Read 9)
