There has been some major RuPaul’s Drag Race debate drama lately, and I’m not talking about whether it was a mic cord or a popped tuck that made a surprise appearance on last week’s episode (it was totally a cord). RuPaul recently did an interview with The Guardian to promote the upcoming 10th season of RPDR. Unfortunately, Ru said some things about trans women that could be classified as some of the most regrettable stuff to come out of RuPaul’s mouth since Trixie’s Snatch Game impression.
Since October, there have been many conversations by famous people about the awful creeps of Hollywood. The vast majority being that time’s up on their awful creep behavior. But lurking behind the corner of some of those conversations have been questions like: “But what about that Roman Polanski petition you signed…“. Natalie Portman wants to be excluded from that narrative from here on out, because she’s sorry she ever signed it.
The year 2003 was probably a pretty great year for Quentin Tarantino. And while it might have been good for Quentin, the feeling obviously wasn’t mutual because now 2003 is reaching through the space time continuum to pimp slap a bitch.
As Allison noted yesterday, a 2003 Howard Stern interview Quentin did while promoting Kill Bill has surfaced like a seriously fucked up penny. In that interview, Quentin vigorously and gleefully defended Roman Polanski by suggesting that his 13 year old victim was a party girl who was asking for it. Sorry Quentin, looks like 2018 hates you even harder.
Grammy chief Neil Portnow, who looks like he has the musical taste of Tuscon, Arizona actuary, made a few girls cry with his mean comments about women needing to “step up” if they wanted to win Grammys and have nice executive jobs in the music industry. Well, he’s sorry, ok?
This week we’ve seen two actresses come out and say they’re not thrilled they worked with Woody Allen and that nobody should count on seeing them in one of his movies again. Greta Gerwig said she wouldn’t have worked with Woody knowing now what she knows about Dylan Farrow’s side of the story. Mira Sorvino has taken her announcement one step further; she has personally apologized to Dylan for choosing to work with Woody on 1995’s Mighty Aphrodite.
Apologize and move on. That’s probably how now former CEO of the Miss America Organization Sam Haskell moved through the world his entire life. Forget a birthday: Sorry, baby, have some flowers I found in the dustbin at work. Knock an old lady down at the grocery store: Sorry lady, but you shouldn’t have been standing there! Get caught exchanging vile emails to your colleagues at your, according to Time, $500,000 a year job as CEO of Miss America: Sorry, you weren’t supposed to see that!
