    Actor Robert Downey Jr. joined several colleagues from the Marvel Comics Universe in defending fellow cast member Chris Pratt after he was attacked on social media. Pratt, who plays Peter Quill (Star Lord) in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, was voted “the worst Chris in Hollywood” after his name was noticeably absent from a political fundraiser that included several of his “Avengers” costars. (RELATED: ‘It Could Be Dangerous’: Dean Cain Weighs In On Attacks Against Chris Pratt’s Gadsden Flag Shirt) Jezebel even published an article “outing” Pratt as a Republican — despite acknowledging that he has never officially declared...

    A black teacher at Manhattan’s Beacon High School told cheering students to boycott the elite campus Monday after an incident involving a white Jewish girl sparked complaints about a racist environment. “What we’re asking of all students: Do not come to school that day to show solidarity for the support of not just students of color but all students at Beacon in providing a safe space,” said a teacher who identified himself as “Mr. Green” at Friday’s boisterous cafeteria gathering, which was videotaped. “Until the demands are met, students are not to return to school,” the teacher exhorted the crowd...

    Brian Sims is having his 15 minutes of fame – or notoriety, depending on your point of view. A Pennsylvania state representative, Mr. Sims, a Democrat, distinguished himself on June 19, 2018 by “welcoming” Vice President Mike Pence to Philadelphia with a tweet featuring a photo of himself, grinning, with middle finger extended. “Let me be the first to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love and to my District!,” he wrote. “We’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the power of all people: Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Atheist, & Immigrant. So...get bent, then get out!”...

    CNN weighed in on Melania’s cyberbullying campaign in the predictable manner: Is Melania Trump trolling her husband? The ever venerable New York Times followed suit a day later with an opinion piece by Frank Bruni (former NYT restaurant critic turned social/political columnist) titled “Melania Trump Could Be Our Greatest First Lady Ever” which posits oh-so-cleverly that Melania may be – wait for it – trolling her husband!The premise is that Melania is a) a hypocrite, b) a Stepford wife, or c) conducting a passive aggressive attack on her husband. I can’t and don’t recommend you read either of these sophomoric offerings...

    As humans, we live to connect. Which is why it’s amazing that it’s this very connection we seek that is now about to tear us apart. For the past five years or so I’ve watched an endless parade of outrage mobs on social media, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Twitter has now become part of a destructive, almost unstoppable evolutionary process. Twitter now triggers the group survival mentality in all of us – in which the desire to expel a person from the group (call it a ritual sacrifice) is done to stave off your own inevitable targeting...

    President Donald Trump has apparently blocked supermodel Chrissy Teigen on Twitter after being on the receiving end of what she described as “9 years of hating” him. “After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him ‘lol no one likes you’ was the straw,” Teigen tweeted Tuesday with a photo of a screenshot showing her being blocked from President Trump’s account.

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. North Carolina police say they're investigating the possible suicide of an Army veteran charged with shooting her service dog as she laughed. Fayetteville Police Lt. Todd Joyce said Sunday investigators believe that 23-year-old Marinna Rollins killed herself. Joyce declined to explain what evidence detectives found. He says police were called to her apartment early Sunday after her body was found by friends. Rollins and 25-year-old Jarren Heng were charged last month with cruelty to animals after investigators say they tied the dog to a tree and shot it multiple times with a rifle.

Palmer admitted to hunting and killing the famed Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe, but said he regrets it and didn’t know he was hunting the famous lion. His name was revealed to the public on Tuesday, setting off an Internet firestorm of hatred and death threats. The 55-year-old dentist is a married father of...

    New Zealand has passed a law that criminalizes one of the least desirable facets of the internet: cyberbullying. The legislation effectively prohibits sending messages to people that are racist, sexist, critical of their religion, sexuality or disability. The rest for determining harm will be if these communications were designed to cause "serious emotional distress," and if a person is found guilty, could face up to two years in jail. In addition, the bill creates a separate crime of incitement to suicide, which will see a person jailed for up to three years if they are found to be encouraging such...

    On Tuesday, Dennis L.A. White, an actor known for portraying Damion 'D-Roc' Butler in the biopic "Notorious," issued a tweet suggesting violence against the daughters of Eric Casebolt, the former McKinney, Texas, police officer whose actions at a pool party incident sparked protests. The tweet has since been taken down, but not before being captured for posterity. Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit was one of those who captured White's message before it was removed. "What if we found eric casebolt's (sic) family & beat up the young girls in it," he tweeted. "Would that b fair? If u live...

    The explosion of hatred and threats against a family owned Indiana pizza restaurant who said they wouldn't cater a gay wedding have forced them to go into hiding and they may leave town permanently. A northern Indiana pizza shop that came under fire after its owners said their religious beliefs wouldn't allow them to cater a gay wedding is closed indefinitely, and its operators say they've gone into hiding. Memories Pizza in Walkerton faced criticism this week after co-owner Crystal O'Connor expressed support for a new Indiana religious objections law. The Facebook and Yelp pages for the restaurant about 20...

    A pizza parlour that said it will use Indiana's heavily-criticized new religious freedom law to deny services to same-sex couples provoked a massive backlash across the Internet on Tuesday and Wednesday. Indiana's Republican governor Mike Pence responded Tuesday to national outrage over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, by saying he'll "fix" the bill to ensure businesses cannot use the law to deny services to the LGBTQ community. But, not before Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, chimed in. "If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no," owner Crystal...
