According to TMZ, UFC fighter Conon McGregor is in trouble with the NYPD for using his fists to go after a bus. TMZ posted a video from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY of Conor and various UFC fighters and entourage members after a news conference for UFC 223. The video shows Conor throwing things at a nearby tour bus, including a security gate and a moving dolly. The driver’s side window was smashed, and many on board the bus believe it was Conor, and a member of his entourage, who did it.
A few years ago, Star Magazine published a story of fucked-up hazing abuse that Jon Hamm allegedly participated in during his time at the Sigma Nu fraternity in 1990. Jon never commented about it. Three years later, and Esquire brought it up during an interview. As it turns out, the hazing incident is right up there with his crotch sausage on the list of things Jon Hamm doesn’t want to talk about.
Last year it was revealed that T.J. Miller had been written out of his role as Erlich Bachman on HBO’s Silicon Valley because he just didn’t want to do it anymore. Around the time the news broke of his departure, T.J. gave an interview in which he pulled back the curtain and let everyone know he really didn’t want to be on Silicon Valley anymore. He hated on executive producer Alec Berg and his co-star Thomas Middleditch, and generally bragged that he was better than the show.
Silicon Valley creator Mike Judge, as well as Thomas, Martin Starr, Zach Woods, and Kumail Nanjiani recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter to promote the T.J. Miller-less 5th season of Silicon Valley. THR’s piece confirmed everyone’s suspicions that T.J. Miller was a nightmare on set.
We’ve gotten to the point now where the name Logan Paul has become more synonymous with a piece of shit than toilet paper. So it should be no great shock that he’s in trouble again for his insufferable antics.
On Monday, 22-year-old Logan uploaded a video of himself and two friends finding two dead rats on his patio. Logan declared: “No rat comes into my house without getting tased!” before whipping a taser from the waistband of his pants and zapping them. He tases them again as their bodies go into the trash.
Deadline says that after Logan got backlash for the video, YouTube punished him by gently tapping him on the wrist again. They have temporarily suspended advertising on his channel. They deemed the content “unsuitable for brands.” In the same video, Logan Paul also makes a joke about the Tide Pod Challenge. So I’m just going to leave it up to the skeptics out there to decided whether it was the dead rodents or the bad press for a huge corporate sponsor that got him in trouble.
YouTube released the following statement:
“We believe he has exhibited a pattern of behavior in his videos that makes his channel not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.”
Logan Paul has 16.6 million subscribers. YouTube doesn’t say how long his advertising suspension will be. He has uploaded three videos since the rat-tasing video, and I’m positive this isn’t the last obnoxious video he’ll post. Rats could seek vengeance against their humiliated brothers by breaking into Logan’s pantry and shitting in all his dry goods, and he’d respond with a video titled: Rats Shat in My Pasta?!? Watch Me Eat It! SPONSORED BY RONZONI.
Logan Paul became a familiar name outside of 3rd grade circles earlier this month when he uploaded a video of himself and friends looking at the body of a man who hung himself in Japan’s Aokigahara forest in (sometimes known as the “suicide forest“). YouTube never removed the video; Logan Paul eventually removed it, and gave two apologies before going on a self-imposed hiatus.
YouTube took their time deciding what to do about Logan Paul, but they’ve finally come to a conclusion. Logan will still be able to upload videos of himself dabbing on them haters, it’s just that now he’ll be paid a little bit less for it.
On Tuesday, The New York Times published an op-ed written by Salma Hayek detailing the alleged horrors of working with Harvey Weinstein on the 2002’s Frida. Salma claimed she was faced with a non-stop barrage of sexual harassment, sexual assault, requests to look sexier as Frida Kahlo, blatant threats of murder and general bullying.
Well, gather ’round, it’s time for another edition of Harvey Weinstein Half-Assed Apology Theater!
