Director Terry Gilliam is speaking out against the #MeToo movement, saying that in Hollywood, “mob rule takes over; the mob is out there, they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.”

In a an interview with AFP on Friday, the filmmaker, a member of the comedy group Monty Python, specifically went after Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims, and said, “Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay.”

Ugh

Twentieth Century Fox was just days away from locking picture on “The Predator” when an urgent note came in: Delete the scene featuring Steven Wilder Striegel.

Striegel, 47, didn’t have a big role in his longtime friend Shane Black’s reboot of the sci-fi thriller — just a three-page scene shared with actress Olivia Munn.

But last month, Munn learned that Striegel is a registered sex offender who pleaded guilty in 2010 after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old female into a sexual relationship via the internet. When Munn shared the information with Fox on Aug. 15, studio executives quickly decided to excise him from the movie.
...
Striegel served six months in jail after pleading guilty to two felonies — risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer. The first role he landed after his release was in Black’s 2013 film, “Iron Man 3.” Three years later, he got another part in one of the filmmaker’s projects, the crime caper “The Nice Guys.” In 2016, Black told GQ that he was planning to produce a heist film “by my friend Steve Wilder.”

Black defended his decision to cast Striegel in a small part in “The Predator” as a jogger who repeatedly hits on Munn’s character.

“I personally chose to help a friend,” Black said in a written statement to The Times. “I can understand others might disapprove, as his conviction was on a sensitive charge and not to be taken lightly.”

Fox, National Geographic, and the producers of Cosmos are investigating new allegations of sexual misconduct against Neil DeGrasse Tyson


They previously ordered a second season of Cosmos (with Tyson still hosting) that was scheduled to premiere sometime next year

This Patheos article has more details about the allegations, including stuff like this:

quote:

Specifically, Watson said Tyson occasionally made “misogynistic comments,” and that he kept a list of overweight actresses on his phone to prove that women aren’t inhibited by portrayals in the media when it comes to health and fitness. He allegedly said it was untrue that women feel pressured to be skinny based on societal standards.

every single time I see a video in the list of recommended videos on the side of what you're watching that features Ben Shapiro in any context other than laughing at him I immediately report for inappropriate content. No one should be forced to watch Ben Shapiro without the context of him being a total loving loon.

(why I get Ben Shapiro-adjacent videos, I have no idea, I watch nothing on YouTube but music videos, trailers, stuff about speed running and the occasional ContraPoints video.

There's a not insignificant overlap between gamers/speedrunners and chuds. GDQ banned a runner just like a week ago for saying a bunch of Nazi poo poo online

The thing about Seinfeld not doing college shows anymore is that it's likely just because colleges probably can't afford his fee anymore, not because he's too *~*un-pc*~*

Jesus, this set just keeps getting worse the more I hear about it

quote:

In the nearly 50-minute set posted on YouTube from a recent stand-up appearance, C.K. also speaks extensively about the word "retarded," says that all Asian men are women, and calls his doctor "human being — you old loving Jewish fag."
...
In a later extensive riff about the word "retarded" and how C.K. thinks it is ridiculous that it is now widely viewed as an inappropriate term to call anybody who is mentally disabled or to use as slang because of the connotations, he joked that Jenny would be an appropriate name for a girl with mental disabilities, "or a trans retarded boy."
...
He then began telling a racist joke about the different sizes of penises between black, white, and Asian men.

"You know why Asian guys have small dicks. ’Cause they’re women. They’re not dudes. They’re all women. All Asians are women. And they have big clits, really big clits, and when they have sex they just stick their clits in each other's pussies and then they procreate using math," said the 51-year-old comedian.

Max Landis sucks as both a person and a writer. Chronicle didn’t work because of the script, it had good actors and a solid found footage gimmick. Bright was an embarrassment. I’m sure even Jesse Eisenberg has forgotten he was in American Ultra by now. Landis is the perfect example of a dude who keeps getting second chances because of who he knows. gently caress him, gently caress is pretentiousness, and turbo gently caress anyone who is willing to cape for him after the abuse allegations came to light.

I'm sure his dad has something to do with it

In his new show, he does Louis C.K. few favors by defending him limply. He also speaks up for Kevin Hart who, in his telling, lived a blameless life when his dream of hosting the Oscars was dashed because of a few tweets. And after litigating the case of Michael Jackson on specials in 2004 and 2017, he does so again here, telling his audience not to watch the recent HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” in which two men who accused Jackson of sexual abuse speak out. Chappelle says he doesn’t believe them, and then adds that he has no evidence, before sputtering that even if the pop star was guilty, “he’s Michael Jackson.”

Costar on Silicon Valley for seasons 2 and 3 who has been open about how toxic the set was, especially Middleditch.

Yeah she was also tweeting about Kumail Nanjiani and Zachary Woods being lovely too, though nothing specific.

She had good things to say about Jimmy O Yang though so that’s a relief
