The request came Friday, when provincial Premier John Horgan posted a video on Twitter asking for help from British Columbia-native celebrities in reaching young people about the dangers of partying during the coronavirus pandemic.

    A Minnesota nonprofit has bailed out defendants from Twin Cities jails charged with murder, violent felonies, and sex crimes, as it seeks to address a system that disproportionately incarcerates Black people and people of color. And it has plenty of money to do it. The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) received $35 million in donations in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd, with many of those donations intended to help protesters who were jailed during the demonstrations and riots in May. The group’s mission was celebrated on social media with praise from Hollywood celebrities, like Steve Carell, Cynthia...

    Seth Rogen on Monday called President Donald Trump a “white supremacist” and accused Republican lawmakers of spreading “blatantly antisemitic propaganda” in an interview with the Israel’s left-wing Haaretz daily. Asked whether he agreed with the assessment that the U.S. no longer provided an “easy, soft life” for American Jews, Rogen responded: “The president is [a] white supremacist, so things are not great here. And Republican politicians literally tweet blatantly antisemitic propaganda pretty regularly. It’s a weird time in America.” In the interview, Rogen also clarified controversial remarks he made a week prior to Marc Maron on his hour-long “WTF” podcast,...

    Anheuser-Busch InBev has pulled the plug on its Bud Light ads featuring comedians Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen. According to Adweek, the beer giant pulled the ads "a little earlier than expected" after its beer sales declined in the third quarter. The Schumer-Rogen ads launched earlier this year before the Super Bowl and played off of the presidential election featuring a mock Bud Light political party. One of the advertisements dubbed "Equal Pay" received a lot of negative attention online. In the video, the comedians denounced the gender wage gap by saying Bud Light "costs the same, whether you're a...

    A Minnesota fund established to help bail out violent and non-violent demonstrators participating in the George Floyd protests is in hot water over the lack of transparency about spending its funds. The fund “Appreciate all those calling for transparency,” the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) tweeted Monday. “We see y’all. Our values and mission have not changed since 2016. Be on the lookout for things coming on our end. Be well.” Protesters, social justice activists, and numerous celebrities — including Justin Timberlake, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Jamie Foxx, and Ariana Grande, just to name a few — have generously donated to...

    In the wake of the brutal death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis man killed by a white police officer while in custody, people all over the country have united to protest police violence and call for charges to be brought against the police officers responsible for his death. Others have backed up social action with dollars, flocking to grassroots organizations in the state of Minnesota to support protesters on the ground. One of these organizations is the Minnesota Freedom Fund, an abolitionist-focused group working toward ending cash bail in Minnesota and nationally. Over the past few days, a Twitter trend...

The Workmen’s Circle, a group whose mission is to strengthen Jewish identity based on social justice and Yiddish language, will honor Rogen, 37, in a ceremony Monday in Manhattan, the New Jersey Jewish News reported Wednesday. “It’s something that’s always been just a very big part of my life,” the actor said of his Jewish identity in an interview with NJJN. “The first jokes I ever wrote were about it; it was a very...

Theron, 43, opened up about her dating life to “Entertainment Tonight” while promoting her latest film “Long Shot” with co-star Seth Rogen. "I've been single for 10 years, it's not a long shot,” Theron said of “someone courting her.” “Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up. I'm shockingly available." Rogen added, “She’s out there!” “I’ve made it very clear,” Theron replied.

    In August, a photo surfaced of a boy in an Afro wig with makeup-darkened skin standing in for 11-year-old African-American actor Keith L. Williams on the Vancouver set of “Good Boys,” a comedy about three sixth-graders who ditch school and wind up on a road trip. The image sparked online outrage, and Seth Rogen, one of the film’s producers, quickly apologized, declaring that on all future projects his team would “take every precaution to make sure something similar does not take place again.” It turned out that the boy in the makeup, reportedly the son of a stuntman, was African-American...

    Comedian Seth Rogen bragged on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” about how he refused to take a photo earlier this month with a couple of teenage fans—because they were the sons of House Speaker Paul Ryan. Mr. Rogen, star of the movies “Knocked Up” and “Neighbors,” said he was approached at a Utah summit by two “very young, white teenage men—think how white they were if I noticed how white they were, because I’m white. I’m Canadian.” “They asked to take a picture with me … and then they said, ‘Our dad wants to meet you,’ and I turned...

    Seth Rogen will play legendary anchor Walter Cronkite in the upcoming film “Newsflash,” centered on CBS’ coverage of the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. David Gordon Green is directing the drama from Ben Jacoby’s script. Former Warner Bros. production president Greg Silverman is producing through his Stampede Ventures, along with Adam Kolbrenner of Madhouse Entertainment. Cronkite, who began working as a radio announcer in 1935, had been named the anchor of CBS’ nightly newscast in 1962. The pic will also feature include Cronkite, newsman Dan Rather, producer Don Hewitt, and CBS network president James Aubrey. The network broke...

    North Korea is so isolated that rather than bring the Internet to its hackers, it brings them to it—in a swank hotel in China. The luxury hotel that has been called a command post for North Korean hackers would make for a unique holiday getaway and give you lots to talk about back home. “Surprisingly Great Hotel - Clean, Tasteful.... and North Korean!” says a trip advisor review for the Chilbosan Hotel in Shenyang, China. For just $53, you get “a deluxe twin room,” including a North Korean breakfast considerably more substantial than those enjoyed by the vast majority of...

    Which means that once again we have to defend Seth Rogen. First he was under attack from Bowl Cut Jr. and his communist minions in North Korea, who didn’t like the way he and party bro James Franco portrayed the Dear Leader in The Interview. Now he’s under attack from a different variety of communist - the American social justice warriors whose job it is to be offended by everything and find it sexist, racist, homophobic and whatever else. Especially if it dares to actually be funny. And once again, though I am really no big fan of Seth Rogen,...

    Just because I was bored, I Googled “Trump” and the results were predictable; on the first page of results, 90% negative and 10% neutral. It’s hard to understand how his poll numbers keep going up when he’s so unpopular. It’s probably something like the Yogi Berra phenomenon, “Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.”This was my favorite headline from the whole crop: Donald Trump Mocks Asians: Uses Broken English While Speaking About China & Japan - Hollywood Life. Because, you know, Hollywood would never THINK of mocking Asians.The media just doesn’t get The Donald yet: political correctness is really not...

    Believe it or not, God takes sides. He is in no sense passive but throughout the history of man has shown Himself active in peace and in war. Though liberal hypocrites like Michael Moore slander snipers as murderers and invoke the name of Christ in their propaganda, God is, in fact, the author of “one shot, one kill.” Chris Kyle was no less the instrument of God as the Devil of Ramadi than was an ancient Syrian bowman whose arrow flew by Divine command. (I Kings 21: 29-40) Millenia ago, Ahab, the wicked King of Israel, thought to hide himself...

    Rupert Murdoch says he's a huge fan of American Sniper, and anyone who thinks otherwise -- "Hollywood leftists" in particular -- are completely out of touch with America. Murdoch just weighed in on the left vs. right controversy surrounding the film, after Seth Rogen and Michael Moore both initially appeared to criticize American Sniper on Twitter, sparking a national debate in the process. The mogul, who owns 20th Century Fox movie studios and routinely takes to Twitter to praise Fox films, offered his support for the Clint Eastwood film, which was released by rival Warner Bros. Murdoch wrote on Twitter,...

    Two well known lovelies in Hollywood went in full, Anti-American-Doofus-Mode, this past week over American Sniper; a movie that celebrates our military, patriotism, Christianity and killing terrorists, via a sniper who could bust a jihadist’s noggin at well over one click. Hollywood hates that type of tale and you can tell they do by how rarely such a film like that tumbles from Tinseltown. Indeed, in today’s sassy milieu, Hollywood hails only as a military “hero” someone who turns against our armed forces, steals our secrets and sells them to an albino Australian, then gets a sex change and starts...
