Even Mike Tyson’s pigeon friends are cringing…
53-year-old Mike Tyso has reportedly pondered a comeback in boxing or another combat sport. Perhaps that “combat sport” is professional wrestling, because he was at All Elite Wrestling’s Dynamite Show in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday. Hey, everyone is joining wrestling these days! Mike was at the show for one of those “confrontations” with one of the actual fighters, Chris Jericho. Mike got all up in Chris’ face to menace him. If it was Mike’s strategy to make Chris fall over from laughter, it was a good one. Because Mike tried to bring the badassness by ripping off his shirt, but his shirt would not let him be great. This led to Mike shoving Chris (in a totally not staged moment) and then a brawl broke out.
The Duck Dynasty family (remember them?) is back in the news for reasons other than being homophobic. They’ve got a new member. But this isn’t a newborn baby. It’s a 45-year-old woman. It seems that Duck Commander, Phil Robertson, had a secret baby with a woman he cheated on his wife with and never knew about it. So it seems cheaters who don’t know about their children for 45 years are totally cool in Jesus’ eyes but the gays will absolutely go to Hell.
The only topic where Madonna has shown more self-awareness and grace than COVID-19 is race. After the death of George Floyd triggered intense protests in America, especially in Minneapolis where it happened, Madonna heard the plight of black Americans and had to speak up. Not only did she share the horrifying 10-minute long video showing the police officer with his knee on George’s back as he pleads for air, she called for gun control and justice for George Floyd.
She could have stopped there. But did she? Madonna decided to end her tribute to police brutality and racism by then posting a video of her 14-year-old son David Banda dancing because… dancing cures everything?
This new coronavirus landscape we live in has been an adjustment. People have been buying inflatable suits to hug their loved ones. Restaurants have used mannequins and bumper tables to keep people apart. Enter: Japan. Japan has some new approaches when it comes to daily life. And that includes roller coasters. Japan has been doing pretty well with coronavirus and lifted its emergency order this week, leading to reopenings including amusement parks. To help prevent the spread of disease as people interact again, theme parks in Japan have asked that you kindly not scream when you’re on roller coasters. Fearfully shitting your pants is fine, though.
The second season of Hulu’s Ramy, starring comedian Ramy Youssef, debuts this Friday and like many rising shows, it managed to get some special guest stars for its new season. Such as Mia Khalifa, the woman who is called a “porn star” despite not working for long or earning that much. There was supposed to be another guest star this season but she ghosted Ramy before filming. An actress completely squandering on a job opportunity on a critically-acclaimed series? Who could that be? Lindsay Lohan? Oh… makes a lot more sense.
HuffPo says that an Italian boy showed nerves of steel when a bear crept toward him in the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park in Trentino, in northern Italy. 12-year-old Alessandro Breda was having a picnic with his family when shit got real and a giant brown bear entered the scene. No, the Italian Yogi Bear didn’t show up and steal their pick-a-nick basket, but they did encounter an actual bear that could have easily torn them to shreds. But Alessandro was unafraid and slow-walked away from that bear like an explosion in an action movie.
