NY Magazine and the “Cosby Women”

There’s a new Cosby show and it’s not being televised, it’s playing out on social media, the press, and in real-time. The plot is a cliff-hanger: what will become of a celebrity that was once highly revered and perceived to be just as wholesome as the character he fabricated for television? Well, it’s not really a cliff-hanger anymore since the main character’s reputation, career and legacy is taking a nosedive down a cliff. On Sunday, New York Magazine posted to the internet their cover story featuring 35 women who have come forward to accuse actor and comedian Bill Cosby of

Spectre Star Christophe Waltz “open” to a black James Bond, but not really…

Christoph Waltz stars in the 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, Spectre, as the villain Franz Oberhauser. When asked whether he thought there would ever be an African American James Bond, Waltz said he was open to the possibility but then basically tried to make that possibility seem absurd by asking, “it wouldn’t make sense to cast Martin Luther King with a white man, would it?” Uh, yes, it would make sense Mr. Waltz, because Lin-Manuel Miranda cast black men as America’s founding fathers, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison in the musical Hamilton, and it was a

Video footage of the arrest of Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old woman who was pulled over by a state trooper  in Waller County, TX on July 10, and later died in a jail cell, has finally been released -and it’s a doozy! Not only does the state trooper’s dashcam video capture the trooper threatening Bland by saying “I will light you up!” as he points a stun gun at her.

Jason Bent, aka Simon Brodkin, Who Rushed Kanye West Onstage at Glastonbury Festival, Makes It Rain on FIFA President

British Comedian Simon Brodkin crashed a press conference today in Zurich and “made it rain” on FIFA President Sepp Blatter. Brodkin, as the character Jason Bent, which he popularized on his BBC comedy show Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show, interrupted Blatter as he was about to speak on reform within the scandal-plagued soccer organization. You may remember Brodkin for crashing Kanye West’s performance during the Glastonbury Festival. Well good, indeed! Brodkin not only made a mockery of Blatter, whose top agency executives have been arrested  on charges of bribery and corruption, but the comedian properly used American dollars (fake though)
