    Days of Our Lives actress Melissa Reeves is catching heat from her co-stars and the long-running soap’s fans for coming out against the Black Lives Matter movement. Earlier this week it was revealed that Reeves — who has played Jennifer Horton on the NBC sudser on and off for the past three decades — “liked” several anti-BLM posts from right-wing activist Candace Owens on Instagram. Reeves’ Days cousin, Linsey Godfrey, wasted little time responding. After one Twitter user defended Reeves’ right to express her opinion, Godfrey countered, “Nah there is no difference of opinion on racism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia.”...

    That didn’t take long. It’s been a while but left-wing Hollywood director Rob Reiner is back to his old tricks, this time telling his one million Twitter followers on Tuesday that a vote for President Donald Trump “is a vote for Death.” It remains unclear why, specifically, Reiner believes a vote for Trump is a vote for “Death.” But the Few good Men director usually doesn’t need a reason. His Twitter feed contains no shortage of provocative and paranoid statements regarding the president and his administration. In March, the filmmaker claimed that Trump is mentally ill and added that his...

    Senator (Dr.) Rand Paul of Kentucky introduced or reintroduced two important police reform bills in the Senate in recent weeks–the Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act (S. 3931) and the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act. With Brian Schatz (D-HI) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Sen. Paul reintroduced (first introduced in 2015) the bipartisan Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act to establish limitations and create greater transparency on the federal transfer of surplus military-grade equipment to state and local law enforcement agencies. This prohibition only applies to offensive equipment and does not prohibit the transfer of defensive equipment, such as body armor. “For...

    America was founded upon genocide, slavery, and theft, said Hollywood director and actor Spike Lee in a recent interview with Joe Madison on his radio show. “The foundation of the United States of America is immoral, from the get-go. The foundation has been shaky from day one. This country was based upon the stealing of the land from native people and genocide against native people, coupled with slavery.” Spike Lee said. “Whenever this day comes, when we go back to supposed normalcy. What they called normal was abnormal.” We’ve been patriotic for this country from day one,” said Lee of...

    Marie Cisco was fed up. America was in turmoil, rocked to its core by the brutal killing of George Floydat the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis. Protests against systemic racism and injustice had been raging for five days, and the nation’s theaters were excruciatingly silent in expressing support. Cisco, a producer who has worked with the New York-based National Black Theatre, the Public Theater, Lee Daniels Entertainment and the Apollo Theater, was not surprised by the crickets coming from these institutions — self-professed bastions of liberalism and equality — but she felt hurt and angry all the same....

"I knew Minneapolis would always be a part of the revolution!" she exclaimed before Omeoga and her shouted in tandem, "Prince always knew!""Artists who...

    Disney is one of the corporations and major Hollywood studios giving full-throated support to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. But the company has time and again been impotent on human rights, silent when it was time to confront the Communist government of China. It’s backed down from support for the Hong Kong democracy movement and oppressed minorities like Tibetans, Uyghur Muslims (they’re quite literally in concentration camps), and, yes, even black people (just months ago). Disney is also one of numerous media companies noted for self-censoring its content to avoid angering the regime in Beijing. The Hulu streaming service...

Rogen posted a photo on Instagram on Monday reiterating his support for the movement, with the caption: “If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me.”

    Actor Ben Platt, the star of Netflix’s The Politician and the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, is urging white people to keep donating money to bail funds in order to keep rioters who have been arrested out of jail. “White ppl at home pls keep donating to the bail funds below,” Ben Platt tweeted on Sunday. The Tony Award-winning actor also voiced his support for Black Lives Matter and told white people to avoid creating chaos when protesting in the streets because it will reflect badly on the black community. “White ppl at protests, though we can’t control undue violence...

    Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt is defending the violent, far-left Antifa after President Donald Trump announced Sunday that the U.S. will classify the extremist group as a terrorist organization. “I’m 100% with you Donald!” Oswalt tweeted sarcastically with a photo of the World War II D-Day landing. “Antifa has been horrible for so long. Here’s some anti-fascists ruining a perfectly good beach day in France! Wish you could have been there to stop them!” The Ratatouille star compared Antifa rioters — who have destroyed numerous small businesses and assaulted innocent bystanders in recent days — to U.S. troops landing at...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Larry Kramer, the playwright whose angry voice and pen raised theatergoers’ consciousness about AIDS and roused thousands to militant protests in the early years of the epidemic, has died at 84. Bill Goldstein, a writer who was working on a biography of Kramer, confirmed the news to The Associated Press. Kramer’s husband, David Webster, told The New York Times that Kramer died Wednesday of pneumonia. “We have lost a giant of a man who stood up for gay rights like a warrior. His anger was needed at a time when gay men’s deaths to AIDS were...

    Joe Bob Briggs, the iconic Horror alter-ego of film critic and comedian John Bloom and current host of The Last Drive-In, has become the target of accusations of homophobia, transphobia, and racism from members of the Horror community, with many of the allegations stemming from columns written by Briggs in which he defended free speech and questioned the benefit of the ever expanding ‘LGBT’ acronym.The discourse surrounding Briggs’ character began on May 14th, when Killing Brooke actor and producer Johnny Donaldson published a Medium article which asserted in its headline that “Horror has a Leadership Problem.”In his post, Donaldson claims...

    Michael Jordan mostly kept himself out of controversy at the height of his fame with the Chicago Bulls during the 1990s but it was a comment about selling sneakers that drew the most ire. Jordan’s comment, “Republicans buy sneakers too,” resurfaced Sunday night in an episode of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary. Jordan admitted that the remark, which was made during the 1990 U.S. Senate race in North Carolina between Democrat challenger Harvey Gantt and incumbent Republican Jesse Helms was "said in jest.”
