Where Has Our Education System Gone So Wrong that No One Understands What 'Censorship' Means Anymore?
Crazy Rich Asians opens tomorrow (which is when we will post our review), and it will face off against Mile 22, which — as Lainey notes — will give Asians the opportunity to get revenge on Mark Wahlberg. (Lainey)
You don’t have to like Michael Jackson the person, but my God, you cannot deny he was a brilliant artist, and if you try to, Stephanie Mills will drag your ass to Sunday. (Dlisted)
The creator of that fat-shaming Netflix series Insatiable is now claiming that all the criticism of the series amounts to “censorship,” and honest to God, people. Where has our education system gone so wrong that no one seems to understand what censorship means? (Celebitchy)
Holy shit! I’ve only just noticed that Ruth Negga has the same beautifully sleepy eyes as Jeremy Allen White. (GFY)
I have no idea if she has a shot in the general, but this is terrific:

So, Sarah Sanders now cannot guarantee that there’s no tape of Trump saying the N-word, but, like, does it matter? He’s a racist. It’s like looking up and seeing a feathered animal flying through the sky and saying, “I don’t know if that’s a bird because I haven’t heard it chirp yet.” (Slate)
