The Sound of Freedom has become the go-to movie for your MAGA relatives of both the QAnon and QAnon-adjacent variety, which has become an extremely frustrating problem for the film’s writer/director, Alejandro Monteverde, who swears he wants nothing to do with that sh*t. In fact, he wants to make it clear that he barely knows Jim Cavaziel and really could’ve done without his batshit conspiracy theories crazy-ing up the place. (A.V. Club)

Bethenny Frankel is dividing the reality TV world. (Lainey Gossip)

Christine Baumgartner didn’t “understand” her prenup with Kevin Costner, nor the word “understand,” apparently. OK. (Celebitchy)

Robyn breaks down that dipshit country song that moron right-wingers are getting all teary-eyed about, and no, it’s not the Jason Aldean one this time. (Wonkette)

From Chris: Massachusetts locked in funding for free lunch for all public school students, and Pennsylvania is supplying free breakfast as well as expanding its free lunch program. (CBS News | Allies for Children)

The Blind Side was already shady enough with its white savior complex and inaccurate depiction of Michael Oher called out at the time. Turns out, the real story was way worse than anyone could’ve imagined. (ESPN)

It is pretty hilarious to picture Christopher Nolan being obsessed with MacGruber and now Talladega Nights. Iconic directors, they’re just like us! (Variety)

Zooey Deschanel is on her way to being a Property Wife? (THR)

Leave Rachel Zegler alone already. (The Mary Sue)

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard think everyone hated their airport dramatics because they represent “liberals.” Uh, folks, this site is lefty as balls, and even we thought it was annoying. (Page Six)

Thanks to my terrifying evangelical upbringing, I’m sadly hard-wired to look for signs of the apocalypse, and I’ll be damned if an Olsen Twin giving birth isn’t one of them. We’re all gonna die. (TMZ)

What is scarier than an unearthly power about to be unleashed? Carmelpie says the true horror of Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff is systemic racism. “Taking place in 1954 and 1955, we follow Atticus, his family, and his close friends as they navigate the supernatural while barely escaping from the daily attacks they endure simply by existing as African-Americans in 1950s America.” (Cannonball Read 15)
