Constance Wu: Asians And Asian-Americans Are Not The Same


Asians and Asian-Americans are very different, and actress Constance Wu wishes that more people in the media, film and TV industries realized that.
In an interview with Allure Magazine this week, the star of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” opened up about her experiences as an Asian-American actress. The only characters Wu said she was offered early in her career were supporting roles, like “the best friend or the assistant to the white person,” she told the magazine.
It wasn’t until she landed a leading role in “Fresh Off the Boat,” a sitcom that focuses on a Taiwanese-American family, that she realized as an Asian-American actress, she was “placated to the point of satisfaction” while being casted in strictly sidekick roles. 
“Once I was in the lead role and other people started making such a big deal out of it, I realized I was previously blind to Continue reading "Constance Wu: Asians And Asian-Americans Are Not The Same"

Donald Trump Is Dr. Evil On Latest Cover Of New York Daily News

In the past two years, the New York Daily News has portrayed President Donald Trump as nearly every antagonist possible. He has been transformed into the Antichrist, a zombie clown, a pervert, a walking “dead clown,” a “treasonous” Vladimir Putin sympathizer and a regular old clown
So it’s only fitting that the tabloid’s Tuesday cover page recast Trump as the bald-headed epitome of evil from the “Austin Powers” film series.
Dr. Evil, that is.




The latest cover refers to Trump’s attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which was enacted during Barack Obama’s tenure as president.
“President Trump, with his Mini-Mes in Congress, has bald-faced scheme to pass Trumpcare Continue reading "Donald Trump Is Dr. Evil On Latest Cover Of New York Daily News"

Daily Beast Writer Who Outed Olympians Apologizes Seven Months Later


More than half a year after writing a controversial story that unwittingly outed Olympic athletes competing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, The Daily Beast’s London editor Nico Hines finally addressed the outrage on Monday in an open letter titled, “An Apology: What I’ve Learned.”
“Seven months ago, The Daily Beast ran a story of mine that should have never been conceived, written, or published,” Hines wrote in the letter, published in The Daily Beast. “For that, I am deeply sorry.”
In the apology, Hines admitted he did not ask his subjects for consent to be involved in the story and acknowledged his reporting may have endangered the lives of some closeted athletes. He also admitted his story “intruded on the lives of people who had a right to be left alone.”
The letter ended with an editor’s note announcing Hines’ return to Continue reading "Daily Beast Writer Who Outed Olympians Apologizes Seven Months Later"

Tomi Lahren Forced To Defend Herself After Admitting She’s Pro-Choice






In just three years, Tomi Lahren has become the conservative right’s outspoken golden girl by passionately defending gun rights, Donald Trump’s policies, and criticizing political movements such as the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter
But she was forced to defend herself from her own fans after she admitted to being pro-choice on women’s rights to abortion during her appearance on “The View” on Friday.
“I’m pro-choice and here’s why,” Lahren said during the show’s “Political View” segment.

CNN’s Brian Stelter Slams Donald Trump For Being A ‘Fox News Presidency’




CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter accused the White House of being the “Fox News presidency” on Saturday, despite President Donald Trump’s recent attempt to blame the network for unsubstantiated claims that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election.
Appearing on “Newsroom with Fredericka Whitfield,” the media critic said there’s only one news source that Trump has committed his loyalty to and that’s the Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News.
Whitfield noted that while the network has tried to distance itself from the wiretapping claim made by its analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano, she found the shift of blame interesting given Fox News and Trump’s “rather cozy relationship.”
Stelter said, “What this ultimately comes down to is that President Trump is in some ways a Fox News presidency.”
“He watches Fox a lot. He tweets about Fox. He gives most of his interviews to Fox. He hires former Fox staffers. He peddles Continue reading "CNN’s Brian Stelter Slams Donald Trump For Being A ‘Fox News Presidency’"

Man Arrested For Tweeting Seizure-Inducing GIF To Reporter With Epilepsy


A tweet that caused a seizure has led to an FBI investigation and an arrest. It also exposed a terrifying way people with epilepsy can be attacked online.
The FBI arrested John Rayne Rivello, 29, of Salisbury, Maryland, on Friday on charges of cyberstalking, the agency said in a statement released Friday. Rivello is accused of tweeting a strobing animated image to Kurt Eichenwald of Dallas, a Newsweek political reporter who has written about his epilepsy.
The moving image, also known as a GIF, allegedly included the statement, “You deserve a seizure for your post.” When Eichenwald viewed the tweet, he suffered a seizure.
Eichenwald’s lawyer told The New York Times that Eichenwald was incapacitated for days, lost feeling in his hand and had trouble speaking for several weeks.
