Kevin Hart needs a dictionary. Somehow, despite his millions of dollars and teams of assistants, he still doesn’t seem to know the meaning of a few very basic words. And I’m not talking about polysyllabic head-scratchers like “equivocate” or “obfuscate”, I’m talking Sesame Street words like “over”, “moving on”, and “growth”.
After stating over, and over, and over again that he’s done talking about the controversy over his homophobic tweets of yore, Kevin appeared on Good Morning America today to talk about the controversy over his homophobic tweets of yore. In the interview, Kevin stated that he’s over talking about it, that he’s moved on, and that he’s already apologized so people should just leave him alone about it already. We get it Kevin. You’re over it. So are we. Why do you keep talking about it!?
Lena Dunham has written a 1,300 word apology to Aurora Perrineau which was published by The Hollywood Reporter, and approximately 1,000 of those words are about what a brave survivor she is, and you already know the “she” I am referring to is Lena. If you’re into extreme self-care and somehow missed it (blessings unto you), Lena feels bad because last year she (and her ex-partner Jenni Konner, who I hope doesnt think we forgot about her ass) publicly defended her friend and Girls writer Murray Miller against rape allegations made by Aurora who filed a police report and claimed that Murray sexually assaulted her in his home in 2012 when she was 17-years-old. For this, Lena is sorry.
Terry Rossio, that dude who wrote Shrek, could have just sat there and ate his rice, but he didn’t. Instead, he mounted his metaphoric steed and #tooktotwitter to metaphorically go to battle for literal anti-vaxxers claiming that the term “anti-vax” is as harmful and offensive as the n-word. Unsurprisingly, this comparison was met with derision and disgust, especially since he oh-so-boldly just went ahead and wrote out “nigger” in its entirety. You would think a person who writes for a living would have a better understanding about how words and language work, but nah. But don’t worry, Terry says he now understands that that word has “no place in any conversation, ever”. So while he still thinks the eradication of polio is a bad idea, he has learned “something”.
Earlier this week, Armie Hammer had the internet thinking: “Damn, you were a lot more fun when you were eating peaches and dancing to The Psychedelic Furs” after he came for celebrities posting memorial selfies with the late Stan Lee. Armie held firm that if you posted a picture of yourself with Stan Lee, you were tacky and self-absorbed, and he was above all that. Enough people must have called him by his new nickname (aka Asshat, which we’ll get to in a moment), because he’s now very sorry.
German Playboy Admits That Some Of Ennio Morricone’s Quotes About Quentin Tarantino Were “Reproduced Incorrectly”
Over the weekend, an interview between German Playboy and legendary film composer Ennio Morricone went viral due to some quotes he allegedly made about two-time collaborator Quentin Tarantino. Ennio called QT a “cretin,” and “not a director.” He described Quentin’s style as blatantly stealing from others and called his films “trash.”
After the interview gained some attention, Ennio released a statement saying the quotes weren’t from him. German Playboy stood by its story. But now Variety is reporting that German Playboy has admitted that the story wasn’t exactly the truth.
Viggo Mortensen is a white guy, and I think most of can agree that we live in a world where white people shouldn’t ever use the n-word in real life. But Viggo must not have realized this when he opened his mouth during a recent discussion after a Film Independent screening of his new film, Green Book. And now he’s really sorry.
