Alec Baldwin Jumps To Kendall Jenner's Defense In Pepsi Ad Fiasco

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Alec Baldwin believes Kendall Jenner is no soda jerk. On Thursday, the actor defended Jenner’s appearance in a reviled Pepsi commercial that was pulled after severe backlash. The actor, best known these days for impersonating Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” said on Twitter that the 21-year-old model is inexperienced, and her management should bear the blame for the fiasco. The ad, which features Jenner breaking the tension of a demonstration by handing a policeman a can of Pepsi, invited heaps of scorn for trivializing real protest movements and was removed by Pepsi on April 5. As of Friday morning, Jenner has stayed mum since the controversy blew up.  But Baldwin had plenty to say over social media. 1- Don't blame @KendallJenner for that spot. Kendall is still a very young, inexperienced woman in an awful business. Blame her management— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) April 13, 2017 2- I remember when my daughter Ireland and Kendall were little kids in school. I think it's unfair to rake these younger ppl over the coals— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) April 13, 2017 3- The US is such a sadistically shame-based, blame-centered culture...— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) April 13, 2017 Not surprisingly, Baldwin inspired a spirited debate with other Twitter users. Take this exchange, for example:  @ABFalecbaldwin @KendallJenner So, at what age should @KendallJenner be responsible for herself?— Jeffrey Cash ️‍ (@JeffreyDCash) April 13, 2017 @JeffreyDCash @KendallJenner Well, Jeff, Id giv her a bit more time 2 develop courage/ability 2 make her own, better decisions.

United Passenger David Dao Was Compared To Rosa Parks. Twitter Isn't Having It.

David Dao, the passenger on the United Airlines flight who was violently dragged out of his seat by police on a plane Sunday, has suffered a broken nose and missing teeth.  He has also been compared to civil rights hero Rosa Parks.  On Tuesday, Dao’s lawyer Thomas Demetrio appeared on national TV and said he received an email that described Dao as the modern-day “Asian version of Rosa Parks.” “Dr. Dao, I believe to his great credit, has come to understand that he is the guy, the guy to stand up for all passengers going forward,” Demetrio said. Many on Twitter have criticized the comparison, saying Parks, who refused to be removed from her seat on a segregated bus during the height of the Jim Crow era, showed a form of defiance and experienced struggles that have absolutely no parallel to Dao’s experience. Yes, Dao’s mistreatment is certainly something to be angry about, and yes, he deserves respect and justice. But we can understand and unpack his case without comparing it to the very specific and very pointed level of racial hate black people like Parks experienced ― and continue to experience. Users on Twitter, many of them black, collectively weighed in to shut down the comparison and flatly label it offensive. Others even responded directly to USA Today’s tweet to slam the question they proposed: “Is United Airlines Passenger Dr. Dao an ‘Asian Version of Rosa Parks?’” Is United Airlines passenger Dr. Dao an "Asian version of Rosa Parks?" https://t.co/MfknPq0T6q (Photo: AP) pic.twitter.com/vUmmbSjoIx— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) April 13, 2017 Read some of the reaction tweets below:  This is a good example of what happens when folks only know a single anecdote about Rosa Parks https://t.co/q92dYRMbBO— stacy-marie ishmael (@s_m_i) April 13, 2017 @USATODAY If he organized for decades prior, including centering the sexual violence BW experience, and influenced someone like MLK, then yes.— Trudy (@thetrudz) April 13, 2017 @USATODAY If not, then he's a citizen who deserves respect, safety and a settlement, without you turning Black ppl into caricatures for comparisons.— Trudy (@thetrudz) April 13, 2017 The dragged United passenger's attorney brought up Rosa Parks during the press conference. Please don't go there pic.twitter.com/mqnVIl1Lm8— Deena McKay (@Deena_McKay) April 13, 2017 What happened to Dr. Dao on his United flight was horrible, but he's not the Asian version of Rosa Parks. Y'all need to Stop it.— Ahmed Finoh (@afinoh0904) April 13, 2017 "Dr. Doa is the modern day Asian Rosa Parks." *sighs* Are there no other names you guys can conjure up? Ghandi...Mother Teresa...Reagan...— Shanelle Moore (@Sha_Moore) April 13, 2017 Modern Day Asian Rosa Parks?!I'm disgusted with United but this attorney and the press conference are ridiculous.— Boulevard° (@AMFMPMTOO) April 13, 2017 Shoutout to the big homie Rosa Parks we not about to let these people put smut on yo name. Rest In Peace champion.— Vince Staples (@vincestaples) April 13, 2017 With respect to Mr. Dao, he is not Asian Rosa Parks, that undermines the courage that she had, also the precise planning of the CR Movement https://t.co/tRvCLvJ4w1— Travelle Barksdale (@bigboy_nerd) April 13, 2017 Who emailed this lawyer & said Dr. Dao was the modern day Rosa Parks? I need folks to stop comparing people to civil rights activists.— A Little Royal (@alittlebitroyal) April 13, 2017 Me when this #United victim atty said,"modern day Asian Rosa Parks." pic.twitter.com/5fwsmc52CG— Calvin Dark (@TalesDarkSide) April 13, 2017     -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Twitter Responds Accordingly To Dude Who Says He ‘Won’t Date Hot Women Anymore’

The New York Post published an article Wednesday evening entitled , “Why I Won’t Date Hot Women Anymore,” which profiles enlightened New York daters who’ve realized it’s possible to form personal connections with people who aren’t extremely hot.  The piece follows 40-year-old Dan Rochkind who very heroically decided to give up dating just “the prettiest young things.”  “Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves,” Rochkind told the Post. “Eventually, I was dreading getting dinner with them because they couldn’t carry a conversation.” Rochkind is described as having “a muscular build and a full head of hair” who is engaged to a non-bikini model (an actual distinction made in the article!) Carly Spindel. Spindel is described as “merely beautiful,” a clear demotion from Rochkind’s pinnacle of hot. “[She] is a softer beauty, someone you can take home and cuddle with, and she’s very elegant,” Rochkind said. “And she’s 5-foot-2, so she can’t be a runway model, but I think she’s really beautiful and is prettier than anyone I’ve dated.” Spindel, the vice president of her mother’s matchmaking company, was confused by how she was described in the article: When the @nypost tells you you're not a swimsuit model, I'm not sure if I should be flattered or insulted!? A post shared by Carly Spindel (@carlyspindel1) on Apr 12, 2017 at 5:01pm PDT Is Carly okay? Should we save Carly?  #SAVECARLYhttps://t.co/cl6B45DKRM pic.twitter.com/p6tmgQAqw7— Jessica Samakow (@jsam1126) April 13, 2017 I feel like we should do a Go Fund Me for Carly, Dan Rochkind's girlfriend. https://t.co/X2f6sWTuIg— katie rosman (@katierosman) April 13, 2017 The article also features several interviews with individuals who are “great-looking people” that believe they’ve been “given a bad rap unfairly.” There’s the 37-year-old Brooklyn writer, Benedict Beckeld, who is described as having “a doctorate in philosophy and the body of an Adonis.” “From my personal experience, people who are better looking are less likely to pursue advanced degrees, or play an instrument or learn other languages,” Beckeld says. There’s also Sonali Chitre, an environmental lawyer who is “done with gorgeous guys” and is looking for a “superballer.” Where did the Post find these people?! As if we didn’t have enough proof that the New York dating scene is a vacuous cesspool of hell and misery, this article only reinforces it. How this article was published and isn’t classified as satire is truly incredible. And Twitter agrees: as an extremely hot woman i'm feeling personally attacked by that nypost article— Jessica Roy (@JessicaKRoy) April 13, 2017 .@LE_Scrawls and I just talked about how exhausting it is to live w/constant awareness of rape but now I know what real suffering looks like pic.twitter.com/Dppq8oOvgv— Bailey (@the_author_) April 13, 2017 Because hot women won't date you anymore. Next question. pic.twitter.com/k8CxdSNgQu— Zach Heltzel (@zachheltzel) April 13, 2017 The thing I love about this NYP article is it is full of people who deserve each other— Shane (@shaneferro) April 13, 2017 To be clear the NY Post article guy has absolutely never dated a swimsuit model in his life. He once went out with a girl who owned a bikini— Amanda Mull (@amandamull) April 13, 2017 A 40 Y.O. man now realizes that women can be both beautiful and full of substance. He spent decades CHOOSING not to see them this way.— Morgan Jerkins (@MorganJerkins) April 13, 2017 "Beautiful women get full of themselves" says this guy who is totally not full of himself. pic.twitter.com/485RKwNZH4— MatzohNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) April 13, 2017 You're all making fun of that article, but it's because you can't empathize with us hot people, us hotties.— Kevin Nguyen (@knguyen) April 13, 2017 this caption is so savagely written this has to be a piece of satire pic.twitter.com/yqL59UMkTO— Gideon Resnick (@GideonResnick) April 13, 2017 Feel like it took the guy I used to work with a few hours to come up with his "I don't date hot women anymore...because I'm married" FB joke— Jason Diamond (@imjasondiamond) April 13, 2017 Some people even had commentary about the iconic photographs in the article: @fivefifths I'm here for the other dude they feature, with his casual photo shoot. Just readin' some books, playin' my fiddle. pic.twitter.com/G89n603A3C— Anil Dash (@anildash) April 13, 2017 I just read the hot ppl article and my big q is why does that guy play violin shirtless— Jen Doll (@thisisjendoll) April 13, 2017 Rochkind assures readers that with his new fiance, he’s “enthusiastic about his decision to give up high-maintenance hotties.” Please put “high-maintenance hottie” on my tombstone? The Huffington Post has reached out to Rochkind and the article’s writer and will update this piece accordingly. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Tone-Deaf Jewelry Ad Tells Customers To 'Throw Rocks At Girls'

A jewelry store in Asheville, North Carolina has apologized for its tone-deaf billboard ad that caused outrage on the internet.  The billboard in question comes from Spicer Greene Jewelers and is currently located near Interstate 240. It reads: “Sometimes, It’s ok to throw rocks at girls...,” surrounded by photos of brightly colored jewels, aka “rocks.”  No but it's ok to throw rocks at whoever approved this billboard. pic.twitter.com/9pd3Rj9mu8— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) March 23, 2017 The company issued an apology on Facebook Thursday after the ad sparked a negative reaction on Twitter and in the media.  Eva-Michelle Spicer, the co-owner of Spicer Greene Jewelers, told The Huffington Post via email that the billboard will come down as soon as they can replace it with their next campaign (which is usually around every four weeks, according to Asheville paper, The Citizen Times ). When HuffPost asked who came up with the statement, Spicer said, “It’s a common phrase in the jewelry industry. We did not invent it.”  The majority of responses to Spicer Greene’s Facebook apology implied they many thought the ad was funny and that critics of it were being too sensitive. “BRILLIANT AD...No apology required,” one commenter wrote, while another added, “These people are idiots and will probably never have any shiny rocks thrown at them! The billboard is funny! Get a sense of humor, life will be much better!”  One woman complained about the “snowflakes that whine over everything,” and told the company, “I hope you make a 500% increase in sales.”  Many of the Twitter responses to the company’s apologies also maintained the billboard was “hilarious:”    @SpicerGreene no need to apologize, I thought it was hilarious. It's obviously not meant to glorify abuse or violence.— Selina (@Selina_Burrell) March 24, 2017 Ppl mad about billboard R the ppl that can't afford 2 have 'stones' thrown at them! They aren't ur clientele, anyway- KEEP IT @SpicerGreene— Guinevere Vandervoss (@mychaoticbrain) March 24, 2017 @SpicerGreene Don't bow to the feminists terrorists!!!! The ad was brilliant and my wife liked it.— word_up_guy (@word_up_guy) March 24, 2017 @SpicerGreene It's an awesome billboard. Remember the old saying that boys would throw rocks at the girls they like. Now they can throw gems— Kimberly Dawkins (@Aldorine203) March 24, 2017 Others, like Chelsea Clinton, found the ad incredibly offensive and pointed out that joking about violence against women is “never funny.” Especially in a world where women are still stoned to death.  Talking about hitting girls is never funny. Ever. https://t.co/cvtxykutis— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) March 24, 2017 @OhNoSheTwitnt @SpicerGreene "If we offended anyone by our incredibly offensive suggestion of stoning women, in a world where people stone women, gosh gee golly gosh"— Pam Pettler (@qwertypam) March 23, 2017 @SpicerGreene normalizing violence against women is not ok. "oh he beat you up because he likes you sweetie" is NOT ok.— KJ (@Pipsquak88) March 24, 2017 “The billboard was intent to be a nostalgic thought of a childhood teaching,” Spicer told ABC News 13 WLOS. “That it’s not ok to throw rocks at girls, it’s not ok to throw rocks at anyone... It saddens me that it was taken that way, because it certainly wasn’t intended.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

With Democrats On The Offensive, Neil Gorsuch Takes The Stand In The Senate

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); WASHINGTON ― On the same day President Donald Trump’s intemperate wiretapping tweets gained him a sharp rebuke in Congress, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch began the process of asserting his independence from him in the Senate, which is considering his nomination to fill the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia. As Gorsuch sat silently Monday through several hours of opening statements by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, it was Democratic senators who did all they could to throw down the gauntlet for his confirmation hearings on the themes they hope to explore: The judge’s independence from Trump. The treatment of previous Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. Rulings in which Gorsuch is accused of favoring the powerful over the powerless. His views on whether judges should second-guess the expertise of administrative agencies. His constitutional vision for the rights of women, minorities, workers, the poor and religious minorities. The role of money in politics. All of these were hot topics for Democrats, who don’t have the votes to reject Gorsuch outright but could try to block him on the Senate floor, an option Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has left on the table. The progressive base, meanwhile, just wants the party to fight the nominee tooth and nail ― and so the hearings, which are set to last through Thursday, are their chance to grandstand about the issues Democrats care about. With day 1 of Judge #Gorsuch’s hearing complete, @SenateDems set stage for tough ?s they will ask tomorrow – American ppl deserve answers.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) March 20, 2017 “You’re going to have your hands full with this president,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told Gorsuch, who sat attentively as both Democrats and Republicans took turns in praising or raising doubts about him. “He’s going to keep you busy.” Trump’s controversial policies and imbroglios came up several times at the hearing, but Gorsuch didn’t engage any of them head on when it was his time to address the committee later in the afternoon. But while discussing the role of the judiciary, he did point out that the robes judges wear are meant to signify impartiality toward all. “Ours is a judiciary of honest, black polyester,” he said. He added that when judges put on robes, “it’s time to lose our egos and open our minds.” Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee’s ranking Democrat, said the Senate’s job is to determine if Gorsuch will be “a reasonable mainstream conservative” on the Supreme Court as well as someone who “will protect the rights of all Americans, not just the powerful few.” She criticized Scalia’s constitutional views, which she said would’ve kept segregation and discrimination against women and LGBT people on the books, then wondered aloud about what Gorsuch’s appointment would mean for the future of abortion rights. Feinstein said that Gorsuch’s writings have been read by both anti-abortion and pro-abortion rights activists to mean that he’d vote to overrule Roe v. Wade, and she pointed out that Trump had campaigned specifically on the promise of nominating “pro-life judges.” Several Democratic senators highlighted the role two conservative groups, the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation, played in shaping Trump’s selection of Gorsuch. Leonard Leo, who leads the Federalist Society, took a leave to advise the president on his court selection. “I do not know of any other Supreme Court nominee who was selected by interest groups rather than by a president in consultation with the Senate, as required by the Constitution,” said the No. 2 Democrat on the committee, Patrick Leahy of Vermont. Time and again, Democrats on the committee lauded Garland, the esteemed appeals judge President Barack Obama nominated a month after Scalia’s death but whose nomination was never given the kind of hearing Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is now promptly offering Gorsuch. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Gorsuch’s home state senator who introduced him alongside Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), urged his colleagues to give the judge a hearing out of respect for him and for Garland, and to do it “in the manner that his predecessor deserved but was denied.” Bennet is taking heat in Colorado over whether he’ll vote for Gorsuch. Since Scalia’s death more than a year ago, the Supreme Court has carried on with only eight justices — four appointed by Democratic presidents, four by Republican presidents. The addition of Gorsuch would bring the court back to its prior status quo, with ideologically close rulings depending on Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative centrist who has often pivoted on hot-button constitutional issues. Perhaps because the stakes are high for Democrats, who fear that Trump’s agenda and an entrenched conservative majority on the court put the causes they care about at risk, Leahy posed a series of rhetorical questions of the nominee, who will no doubt get them again once the formal question-and-answer sessions begin Tuesday. “Will you allow the government to intrude on Americans’ personal privacy and freedoms? Will you elevate the rights of corporations over those of real people? Will you rubber-stamp a president whose administration has asserted that executive power is not subject to judicial review?” Leahy asked. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_2'),onPlayerReadyVidible); If progressives are worried that Democrats might botch the Gorsuch confirmation battle, Rhode Island’s Sheldon Whitehouse delivered what’s likely the most potent moment for their base: a spirited speech listing all the cases on which Republican appointees to the Supreme Court have voted in five-justice blocs in important cases that, in Whitehouse’s view, have given Republicans more power. “I can’t help but notice the long array of 5-to-4 decisions with all Republican appointees to change the law to the benefit of distinct interests: Republicans at the polls and big businesses pretty much everywhere,” Whitehouse said. Among the cases he listed were one that gutted an key section of the Voting Rights Act and the Citizens United decision, which allowed corporations and unions to spend unlimited amounts in elections. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who last month revealed that Gorsuch had told him during a private visit that Trump’s attacks on the judiciary were “demoralizing,” insisted that he’d demand that Gorsuch be more forthcoming with his condemnation. “It isn’t enough to do it in the privacy of my office or with our colleagues behind closed doors,” he said, adding that he should condemn Trump publicly and explicitly about the president’s verbal assaults on the courts. After taking the oath in the afternoon, Gorsuch finally got a chance to speak about himself and his record, following introductions by Bennet, Gardner and Neal Katyal, an experienced Supreme Court lawyer who was acting solicitor general in the early years of the Obama administration. Skirting the kinds of controversial subjects that often divide the high court, the nominee stuck to pleasantries, speaking fondly about his Colorado roots, his family and his legal heroes ― including Kennedy and the late Justice Byron White, for whom he clerked. “Justice Scalia was a mentor, too,” Gorsuch said. Indirectly, the judge pushed back against Democrats’ attempts to paint him as someone who’d rule against the less powerful, noting that, in his years as appellate judge, he’d sided with Native Americans, class-action plaintiffs suing corporations, prisoners, criminal defendants and undocumented immigrants. “Sometimes, too, I’ve ruled against such persons,” he added. “My decisions have never reflected a judgment about the people before me.” He then repeated a line that he used on the day he was nominated to the Supreme Court, emphasizing how judges should stick to the letter of the law ― no more, no less. “A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is probably a very bad judge, stretching for policy results he prefers rather than those the law compels,” Gorsuch said. Talking to reporters after Day 1 of the hearings, Grassley said that he expects the Senate to vote on Gorsuch’s nomination before Congress’ Easter recess, which is scheduled to begin April 8, and that he expects some Democrats to join Republicans in putting him through. Tuesday’s session is expected to be a marathon for Gorsuch, with all 20 senators on the judiciary committee posing questions in 30-minute intervals. That’s at least 10 hours in the hot seat.

As Expected, The Oscars Became A Night Of Protest Against Donald Trump

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Leading up to the Oscars this year, both liberals and conservatives knew full well that the event would be clouded by the now-perpetual shadow of President Donald Trump. In January, Meryl Streep’s pro-immigration speech became the most memorable moment from the Golden Globes. Later in the year, many Grammys performers and attendees spent that night creating musical moments of resistance. It was clear: The 89th Academy Awards were simply going to get political. The ceremony quickly became political as messages of opposition began surfacing during the first minutes of the red carpet. Here are a few notable moments.  Many celebrities wore blue ribbons to the event in support of the ACLU. The American Civil Liberties Union was widely represented at the awards. The non-profit had reached out to major nominees prior to the ceremony to ask if they’d wear the ribbon. The ACLU is one of several organizations actively working to resist Trump’s policies, including his divisive executive order regarding immigrants and refugees.   On the red carpet, a Syrian refugee featured in a nominated short film advocated for help. "My msg would be for ppl to help. A lot of Syrian families need help." Hala Kamil, Syrian refugee from the Oscar short "Watani my homeland" pic.twitter.com/L18ctocOFa— Cara Buckley (@caraNYT) February 26, 2017   Famous chef Wolfgang Puck spoke about the official Oscar after-party meal he made for the guests and used it as an opportunity to comment on Trump.   Jimmy Kimmel spent much of his monologue making Trump jokes. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_2'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Key jokes to listen for: Kimmel said that besides airing in the U.S., the Oscars were also airing in 225 countries “that now hate us.” He said the Oscars weren’t like Homeland Security and that Hollywood doesn’t discriminate. (Instead, he continued, “We discriminate against them based on their age and weight.”) He repeatedly went after the “over-rated” Meryl Streep, much like how Trump attacked the actress on Twitter after her Golden Globes speech.  This moment from Kimmel’s monologue was also notable: There are millions and millions watching right now, and if every one of you took a minute to reach out to one person you disagree with ... and have a positive, considerate conversation — not as liberals or conservatives, but as Americans. If we would all do that, we would make America great again. We really could. It starts with us.     Kimmel went on to make jokes about Trump throughout the whole night. The comedian made a joke about Trump likely tweeting about the ceremony in all caps during the middle of the night while using the bathroom. He called out Trump for his attack on the media with an extended satirical rant on fake news, as he said, “We have no tolerance for fake news ... fake tans, we love.” When introducing the president of the Academy, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Kimmel made sure to distinguish her as “a president who believes in both arts and sciences.” While onstage, Isaacs further said, “Tonight is proof that art has no borders, no single language and does not belong to a single faith.” Later in the night, Kimmel also joked about the fake violence in Sweden that Donald Trump erroneously brought up in a speech.   When introducing Best Supporting Actress, Mark Rylance said that opposition is “really good in society,” but “opposition without hatred” is important. He also claimed that opposition is “something women seem to be better at than men, opposing without hatred.”    Director Asghar Farhadi boycotted the ceremony because of Trump’s travel ban. He ended up winning Best Foreign Language Film for “The Salesman.” A surrogate presented his speech, in which he called the travel ban an “inhumane law.” function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_3'),onPlayerReadyVidible);    While onstage to introduce Sting’s performance, Dev Patel also referenced Trump’s attack on the media, explaining that this is “a time when journalists around the world are under attack.”   Gael García Bernal spoke against Trump’s wall. “I’m against any form of wall that wants to separate us,” he said. The Mexican actor spoke in length: Flesh and blood actors are migrant workers; we travel all over the world, we build families, we construct stories, we build life that cannot be divided. As a Mexican, as a Latin American, as a migrant worker, as a human being, I’m against any form of wall that wants to separate us.    Kimmel memorably tweeted at Trump during the ceremony and told the audience, “I’m starting to get worried about him. He hasn’t tweeted at us once.” He also tried to make #merylsayshi become a thing. Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) February 27, 2017     John Cho and Leslie Mann spoke about the Academy Sci-Tech Awards. Cho joked about barring the press from attending.     And although it was small, Streep appeared to make a very short, but important follow-up comment to her Golden Globes speech. Speaking about the greatness of movies, Streep said that one of their greatest qualities that they can affect “audiences no matter where they’re from.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

People Are Ticked That Rory McIlroy Played Golf With Donald Trump

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Golf champ Rory McIlroy hit into the social media rough after playing golf with President Donald Trump on Sunday. McIlroy, who has won four majors and is the World No. 3, told No Laying Up he accepted an invitation to play with the president at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, despite recovering from a stress fracture in his rib. A picture posted Saturday of him on the links with Trump, ClearSports CEO Garry Singer and former New York Yankees star Paul O’Neill made the rounds, but Mclroy told No Laying Up that O’Neill and Singer were not part of the Sunday foursome. Big battle today at Trump International with Clear CEO Garry Singer @McIlroyRory @PaulONeillYES @realDonaldTrump Drain the putt... pic.twitter.com/AZJqEVtlBT— ClearSports (@ClearSportsLLC) February 19, 2017 McIlroy called the commander-in-chief a “decent player for a guy in his 70s,” but the Internet was not all compliments about the golf star associating with the controversial chief executive. To some Twitter users, McIlroy had dug a hole for himself. @McIlroyRory .. How Could You Play Golf with a Megalomaniac, like Trump ... Shame on You ...— JOHN HONEYFORD (@INTERTELTOP1) February 21, 2017 I was a massive fan of Rory McIlroy but after hearing he played a round of golf with Trump at the weekend, no more. Bad move, Rory!— Trevor D (@_trevordonaghy) February 20, 2017 Rory McIlroy didnt play in the olympics cos he didnt want ppl to hate him , but he plays golf with donald trump .Good one rory #rorymcilroy— jimmy morgan (@jimmymo78647603) February 20, 2017 I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for Rory McIlroy's round of golf. #Trump was probably asking him how to improve his lie.— Fachtna Ó Ceallaigh (@Fachtna_Kelly) February 20, 2017 Just when you thought it was impossible to dislike Rory McIlroy more, off he goes playing golf with Trump.— Cack Jollins (@cackjollins) February 20, 2017 Rory McIlroy has just gone way, way down in my estimation #Trump— Tom Naysmith (@tanaysmith) February 20, 2017 @golf_com @SInow @McIlroyRory oh... Dang. I liked @McIlroyRory up until this. — Kathy Minnerly (@katekennedy6) February 20, 2017 Rory McIlroy "Playing in the Olympics is too political"**plays golf with Donald Trump** — Robert (@amazibob) February 20, 2017 In all fairness, McIlroy did get some support too. So @McIlroyRory plays golf with @POTUS & promptly gets viciously abused too. This anti-Trump hysteria is absolutely PATHETIC. pic.twitter.com/dqHoXDyOBF— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 20, 2017  H/T For The Win -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
