Rebel Wilson has done such a bad job managing her latest publicity crisis that’s she’s inspired her own hashtag on Twitter. If you can’t post to #RebelWilsonBlockedMe, are you even trying? Rebel’s troubles began when she appeared on the Halloween episode of Ellen. She was there to talk about her upcoming romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic . Rebel excitedly noted that she was “first plus-size woman’ to play the lead in a romantic comedy”, which is not true.
Even though Rebel has been known to tell a fib or two, I wouldn’t call that a straight-up lie, maybe it was more of an oversight. Quite a few folks on Twitter, many of them black women and women of color, kindly reminded Rebel that Queen Latifah, Mo’nique and Ricki Lake had all been in rom-coms before her. And here’s where Rebel could have said, “point taken, I misspoke” but that’s not how Rebel rolls. Instead she doubled-down, and got to blocking the haters/information sharers.
As we saw yesterday, the Today show team dressed in an 80s theme with Al Roker donning a Dollar Store fright wig to portray Doc Brown (of the irony) from Back To The Future. Because we’re living in the upside down where grown men and women pretend to be dumber than a box of rocks (or in some cases just are), some folks cried that Al’s costume was racist. Le sigh. Yes, we are really still doing this. In response to the online criticism, Al #tooktotwitter to defend his right to play a character who was played by a white man in a movie about a time traveling car that runs on garbage.
Balthazar Getty #tooktotwitter To Defend Farrah Abraham Against Vivica A. Fox And Some Lady Named “Scary Mary”
Hold onto your hats folks, I’m about to go drop some proper Dlisted dynamite on that ass. This story features not 1, not 2, but 3 “celebrities” who are out here #inthesestreets punching and scratching their way to the lower-middle. Or upper-bottom. Ok, middle-bottom. Balthazar Getty worked himself into quite a tizzy and #tooktotwitter to rush to the defense of Farrah Abraham who appeared on Vivica A. Fox’s new talk show called Face The Truth. Were drugs involved? Yes they were. Is one of the participants a middle aged DJ/Rapper? Yes they are. Did somebody get called a C-U-NEXTTUESDAY? Abso-fucking-lutely.
Grimes has somehow managed to snag one of the very few billionaires under 50, so it makes sense that’s she’d go hard to defend her man, Elon Musk. Even if he is kind of a tool. Last week Grimes’ benefactor found himself under scrutiny for making a big donation to some right wing, Republican organizations. It’s a requirement that I think is in the Billionaire Handbook which is handed to newly minted billionaires in a secret ceremony involving goat’s blood and takes place in a clubhouse in an underground bunker.
The problem is that Elon is a climate change affirmer, which is at odds with the Republican platform which thinks we should all just take our sweaters off and quit complaining. Elon defended himself saying he gives way more to environmental groups. A Grimes fan #tooktotwitter to tell her she should break up with Elon because of his republican associations. Rather than simply keeping her mouth shut, Grimes shot back.
While promoting his upcoming “lengthy discussion” show, Alec Baldwin said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that every time he has to strap in and channel Donald Trump for Saturday Light Live “it’s like agony”. I’ll give you one guess to figure out who got really riled up by that and #tooktotwitter to throw a world class hissy fit. WRONG! Barbra Streisand is not the correct answer, what the fuck is wrong with you? It was Donald Trump himself!
Armie Hammer woke up and reached for the cranky pants that are too tight in the crotch again yesterday and #tooktotwitter to pop off at his number one enemy, that damn woman from BuzzFeed! Senior culture writer Anne Helen Peterson (whose post last November titled Ten Long Years Of Trying To Make Armie Hammer Happen made Armie want to throw his dolly at the nanny and led him to quit briefly quit Twitter) opined on a Vanity Fair interview with Jennifer Lawrence and Armie took offense.
