What’s worse than being dropped by multiple brands, including one that made you a billionaire? Getting dropped by Goodwill, which got roasted by. Yes, the place that sells slightly used lamps from the late 80s has told Kanye “Ye” West that his Yeezy shoe line is no longer welcome on their shelves! And you thought getting kicked out of Sketchers HQ was Kanye’s rock bottom. With how he’s steering things, this ship has got way lower to sink.
The cancelations are coming in as hot and ready as a Little Caesar’s pizza for Ye a.k.a Kanye West. His antisemitic rants and George Floyd slander have led to him being dropped by multiple companies, from JP Morgan Chase to Balenciaga. Who will showcase Kanye’s body sock collection now?! Well, don’t ask Anna Wintour to back Ye’s fashion vision because she’s also severing ties with the beleaguered rapper. Damn, even Anna, the woman who proudly put Kim Kardashian’s ass on the front cover of Vogue, is calling it quits. Despite these major disassociations, Kanye still has clout. What says “My life totally isn’t in the toilet” more than hanging out with Candace Owens and Kid Rock and buying the useless social platform Parler!
The Batgirl film from Warner Bros.–starring Leslie Grace of In The Heights and directed by Bad Boys For Life directors, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah–may not ever see the light of day. Even though Warner Bros. reportedly spent at least $90 million on Batgirl and it was finished filming, it has been shelved indefinitely and sources are suggesting it could be because test audiences thought it was shit and the studio decided that using it as a tax-write off would be a smarter money move than releasing it.
Today The CW announced that Riverdale will end with its seventh season, which will air in early 2023. That explains that sudden breeze I just felt; it’s Lili Reinhart’s agent and manager breathing a giant sigh of relief. The 25-year-old actress, who once compared filming the show to being in prison, was one renewal away from going full Constance Wu.
I remember a time when Ellen DeGeneres was America’s second-favorite dancing queen behind ABBA until it came to light that her real favorite type of dance is stomping over her staff’s feelings with mean words. Of course, she immediately began to shimmy her way through the allegations with apologies, but they all fell upon deaf ears and ultimately led to her long-running talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show getting a complete re-tooling in the form of a goodbye! Although she’s still trying to convince us she’s the same lovable, rhythmless dancing fool she was of days passed we no longer buy that act anymore. So in an attempt to get people to watch her sinking ship one last time, Ellen announced one of her final guests will be her very first guest, Jennifer Aniston.
Not too long after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were quitting life as senior royals and leaving the UK for the land of opportunity (cue the American Tail theme), Harry and Meghan got a podcasting deal with Spotify, and Netflix threw a ton of money at them to make a variety of projects, including documentaries, feature films, scripted series, and shows for the kids. Well, one of the shows they had in production is not happening and Netflix cancelled it before it even debuted.
