Alec Baldwin vows Twitter account shutdown after backlash over Harvey Weinstein comments

Alec Baldwin announced he will suspend his personal Twitter account Saturday following online criticism over comments he made over movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment and abuse allegations.Baldwin came under fire following a PBS interview posted Friday where he talked about Weinstein's reported payoffs to keep women he had allegedly sexually abused, including actress Rose McGowan, from coming forward (Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex).Baldwin said he was no longer engaging online on Saturday."It is (with) some degree of sadness that I will suspend posting on this (Twitter) account for a period...in the current climate," Baldwin said in the first of a series of tweets from his official account.In the PBS Newshour interview, the actor discussed Weinstein's reported payoff to McGowan."And where this thing with Harvey Weinstein and Rose McGowan came along was, I had no idea, until now, that she had settled the case," Baldwin said. "And I found this very compelling. The New York Times wrote an article and said, 'Do the settlement of these cases hurt the cause of exposing and bringing us to a place of real change?' When women take money and are silenced by that money, even though they took the money and were silenced because they were told, beyond the money, it was the right thing for them to do — keep quiet, don’t make too many waves, it is going to hurt your career. When they do it, nonetheless, does it set back the cause of change?"Asia Argento, one of Weinstein's many accusers, was one of the vocal online critics of the interview, tweeting at Baldwin: "You're either a complete moron or providing cover for your pals and saving your own rep. Maybe all three."In a later tweet Argento said Baldwin was "mansplaining 'the cause' for women everywhere."

50 years ago, IU football made the Rose Bowl — no, really

Think times are turbulent?Fifty years ago, the United States was at war in Vietnam, and with itself. It was the summer of love, and of hate. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down laws banning interracial marriage, and Thurgood Marshall became the first black justice. The Beatles ruled pop culture.Into this maelstrom came the Indiana Hoosiers. They were coming off a 1-8-1 football season and a 51-6 loss to Purdue. If they were not the worst major college team of 1966, they were close to it. Coach John Pont wasn’t on the hot seat. He was as good as gone.One year later:If the Hoosiers were not the nation’s best team, they were close to it.  They finished the regular season 9-1 and ranked No. 4 in the country.ESPN can be excused for not filming a “30 for 30” documentary. Might be dismissed as fake news.Except there was nothing fake about it.After winning their Big Ten opener at Illinois, the Hoosiers became 3-0 for the first time since 1928. As players boarded the bus for the trip back to Bloomington, quarterback Harry Gonso found himself sitting near offensive lineman Bob Russell, one of the seniors who had endured two seasons with three total wins.Gonso expressed amazement.Russell turned, looked at his quarterback, and replied:“You know, I think we’re for real.”They were.Players and coaches are returning to IU for a 50-year reunion. They will be introduced to the Memorial Stadium crowd Nov. 18 during the game against Rutgers.The 1967 Hoosiers were the Cardiac Kids, playing eight games not decided until the final four minutes. “Punt, John, punt” became a catchphrase. The Hoosiers had an infusion of talent, were lean and fast, featured a new offense and a stout defense ... and, well, some luck. The Big Ten was down.Mark Stevens was a freshman center at Indiana. Years later, he witnessed his son, Brad, coach underdog Butler to within one shot of college basketball’s national championship. As with those Continue Reading

Covfefe: Was it a malapropism? Typo? Autocorrect run amok? And how in the world do you pronounce it?Those questions are on everyone's minds after President Trump included it in a now-deleted tweet criticizing his press coverage.Whatever it was, Merriam-Webster wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole. But that didn't stop comedians and celebs — and the rest of us from jumping — on it.Star Wars legend Mark Hamill was just glad we could give the Russians even more to laugh about.Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose chose to look on the bright side.Whereas Little Britain star Matt Lucas went with a Streetcar Named Desire joke.The whole thing depressed Jimmy Kimmel.And if it's a day ending in "y," former White House photographer Pete Souza is trolling Trump.Regular folks and corporate social-media editors also rose to the occasion.There were political puns:Health-insurance puns:Movie puns:Lost punsTravel puns:Food punsTiny-hands puns:Marketing puns:Twin Peaks puns:Shakespeare puns:And finally, there was a valid argument against an edit option in Twitter: Continue Reading

Democrats take to Twitter to react to reports of Trump ending DACA

As reports circulated Sunday night about President Trump's plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, also known as the DACA, Democrats took to Twitter to share their thoughts and reactions.  More: What is DACA and who does it protect? "If Trump decides to end DACA, it will be one of the ugliest and cruelest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history," tweeted Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. "If @realDonaldTrump was interested in healing our nation, he wouldn't end #DACA," wrote Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif. "His decision is based on heeling to his shrinking base."The hashtag "#DACA" quickly rose to be among the top of Twitter's "Trending Topics" list in the United States early Monday morning."Young people affected by #DACA are American in every way except immigration status," tweeted Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn. "@POTUS ending program is not who we should be as nation."Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., tweeted her support for the DREAM act as a way to protect the immigrants at risk by the ending of the DACA. "Congress MUST act to protect #DACA recipients. I'm ready to vote "YES" on the DREAM Act!""It's a cruel hand that extends the American dream and then steals it away. #DACA #DREAMers," wrote Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., in the first of three tweets on the topic.  "For an Administration marked by indifference to plight of others, today @POTUS hit rock bottom, ending protection for a bunch of kids. #DACA," wrote Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif..Citing unnamed sources, Politico and Reuters reported on Sunday night that Trump had decided to end the DACA, a program created by the Obama administration in 2012 and that protects nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation.  Reuters, citing sources familiar with the situation, said that Trump will give Congress six months to craft a bill to replace DACA.

Rose McGowan says she’s ‘insulted’ by Adam Sandler’s casting note urging actresses to wear ‘push up bras’

Rose McGowan has a thing or two to say to "Madam Panhandler" or rather Adam Sandler. The 41-year-old actress took to Twitter recently to address her issues with a casting note for an upcoming Sandler project. "Casting note that came w/script I got today," she tweeted Wednesday. "For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die." Along with her cryptic yet comical tweet McGowan posted a portion of the note, which instructed actresses to "Please make sure to read the attached script before coming in so you understand the context of the scenes. - Wardrobe Note: Black (or dark) form fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push up bras encouraged). And form fitting leggings or jeans. Nothing white." The "Charmed" alum's fans quickly reacted to her post, which was retweeted nearly 2,300 times. "And people wonder why his movies flop. Ugh," one fan wrote. Another added, "Adam Sandler lost his damn mind, starting to give me perv creep vibes!!" One fan even called Sandler out for other seemingly sexist gestures writing, "The @rosemcgowan script note is 2nd creepiest #AdamSandler related anecdote of the week following this red carpet pic." That photo showed Sandler, Selena Gomez and Kevin James at the "Hotel Transylvania 2" screening in Cancun, Mexico, on June 14. While Gomez was dressed in a red gown with a thigh-high slit, Sandler appeared in an oversized, wrinkled T-shirt, baggy pants and sneakers. James was slightly better with a black T-shirt, gray shorts and sneakers. Sandler's sloppy appearance was a stark contrast to what McGowan brought to light by sharing his sexy dress requirements for actresses. On Tuesday, McGowan returned to Twitter to clear up exactly what she felt insulted by in Sandler's casting note. "I was insulted by the instructions to 'read the script for context.' Hahaha," she wrote. Follow on Twitter @RiveraZayda Continue Reading

Amber Rose doesn’t knock Kim Kardashian for her sex tape: ‘I’m all for a women making something out of nothing’

Amber Rose, who has been in a feud with the Kardashian sisters, reveals she is sick of being slut-shamed by their family. "I just recently had to deal with that when my ex said he had to take 30 showers after he's been with me," she told ET. "We were happy when we were together and all of the sudden I'm getting slut-shamed when we're not together anymore. It's unfair." Rose was referring to comments Kanye West made during a recent radio interview after she called out Tyga, 25, for dating 17-year-old Kylie Jenner. The rapper wasn't the only one to attack her over Twitter. Khloe Kardashian and the former wife of Wiz Khalifa shared harsh words on social media as well. Regardless of what was said during the heated social media fight, Rose says that she "doesn't hate Khloe." "Yes, I could have totally minded my business when it came to her younger sister and her relationship. But me being a dancer at such a young age dealing with older men, (it) gave me the humility and knowledge to speak on such a subject," she said. Although she made stabs at Kim Kardashian's sex tape during the feud, she does share she never hated on the reality star for doing that. "I'm all for a women making something out of nothing," Rose said. "If you can do something and bring your whole family along and make millions of dollars, that's dope to me." The model says she is ready to move on and would "absolutely" make up with the Kardashian clan. On a mobile device? Click here to watch the video. Continue Reading

Kylie Jenner posts Mother’s Day message to Khloe Kardashian instead of Kris; Kim receives thousands of roses

Kylie Jenner took this Mother's Day to thank the woman who apparently raised her and has always been a mother to her: Khloe Kardashian. The youngest "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star posted a photo collage on her Instagram with a sweet message, but one person was missing note: her actual mother, Kris Jenner. "Thank you for being you & being another mother figure to me my whole life and doing the same for our nieces and nephews," she captioned the photo of her and Khloe. "Whoever, one day, gets to have you for a mom will be the luckiest in the world." The pic also included the quote, "Don't forget about your first daughter when you decide to start your own family." This isn't the first time the 17-year-old star has thrown jabs at her mother, Kris. "Khloe is more of a mom to me than my mom is sometimes," she told UK's Grazia magazine. "My mom is all about being friends." This season on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," the family momager has admitted that she has had difficulty connecting with her youngest child. Kylie hasn't forgotten about her mother completely this year, though. Along with her sister Kendall, she sent Kris a slew of gifts including a balloon statue, which she shared on Instagram with a short note. And for her part, despite some possible problems on the home front, Kim Kardashian seemed to be enjoying her Mother's Day, although she had to spend it away from her daughter, North, while on her book tour in Brazil. Kanye West has been known to shower his celeb wife with extravagant presents including walls of roses, but this time he might have outdone himself. The reality star took to Instagram to share a photo of the thousands of white roses the rapper had sent to her hotel room. "My amazing thoughtful husband had the sweetest note w a couple thousand roses covering my suite for Mothers Day," she wrote with the photo of vases of flowers covering Continue Reading
