The Walking Dead Removed Steven Yeun From Opening Credits - Everyone Panicks (SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS)
— radioc00per (@radioc00per) July 23, 2015
So, us The Walking Dead fans are still in denial that Glenn is legitimately gone - though last we saw him, there were guts being eaten that totally looked like his guts. He also wasn't featured in Talking Dead's "In Memoriam" segment, so we're still hoping that Glenn isn't gone just yet. E! reports that Scott Gimple, one of the shows concoctors released a statement, which said the following:
"In some way, we will see Glenn, some version of Glenn, or parts of Glenn again, either in flashback, or in the current story, to help complete the story."
UGH! You people are so mean!!!
Donald Trump Puts John Oliver On Blast - John Oliver Fires Back!
John Oliver's show Facebook page is retaliating against a tweet that The Donald put out saying that John "had his people call to ask me to be on his very boring and low rated show. I said 'NO THANKS' Waste of time & energy!" Last Week Tonight with John Oliver's Facebook page released this response:
Anxiously awaiting the segment on this one...
ABC Responds To Petition Against Raven-Symone
"Raven Symone has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on the view for Long enough, from stating that she wouldn't hire somebody for having a ghetto name, to openly complaining about reverse racism, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said "get off your phone in school then". African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say. We need strong black role models in prominent positions on television an(d) Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from The View."
The petition count, addressed to Barbara Walters, has now reached 20,000+ out of 150,000 as the goal mark. The Hollywood Reporter had an ABC representative share this statement: "We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel."
This Kesha Vs. Dr. Luke Thing Just Hit A Pivotal Upset - And It's Sort Of Sickening
Poor Kesha. If you aren't aware, Kesha has been going through a legal battle against her former mentor Dr. Luke as he sexually abused her. She has been in court for quite some time now, and now according to Nylon, this has reached an ugly pivotal point: Kesha cannot work with her record label and Sony without working with Dr. Luke, as stipulated in her contract. So she has two options: work with her abuser, or watch her career disappear without putting out music. Nylon shares the following quote from her attorney Mark Geragos: "The letters in response indicated both Sony and Dr. Luke believe the exclusivity clauses remain in effect, they will not agree to refrain from enforcement, and Sony specifically will not work with Kesha unless she agrees to work with Kemosabe and Dr. Luke’s company, KMI." Somehow we're seeing that as more abuse on top of what she's already suffered, which is really unfortunate.
