Ryan Reynolds shared a public service announcement to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Canada in which he poked fun at fellow celebrities feeling self-important amid the ongoing crisis. The Canadian actor shared the brief one-minute video on his Twitter page Monday in response to a social media chain launched by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In it, the actor struck a serious tone while asking fellow Canadians to stay at home in an effort to curtail the spread of COVID-19. “Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau,” Reynolds says in the video of himself sitting on the couch and speaking directly to camera. “We need to work together to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19.” For the sake of levity, that’s when the 43-year-old “Deadpool” star joked about the many ways in which celebrities are seizing the current world health crisis for attention on social media. “I think in times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities that we count on most,” he deadpanned. “They’re the ones that are going to get us through this… right after health care workers, of course… First responders, people who work in essential services, ping pong players, mannequins — they’re great — childhood imaginary friends, sure. Like 400 other types of people.” The actor then concluded his message on a serious note by asking his followers to practice social distancing and encouraging them to look ahead to the future. “Look, stay at home, practice social distancing, wash your hands. We are going to get through this thing, we’re going to get through this thing together,” Reynolds concluded. Trudeau, whose wife tested positive for the virus, started the social media chain calling on high-profile people to help him “plank the curve.” Reynolds ended his video by nominating Canadian musician Steven Page, his brother, Terry Reynolds, and fellow actor Seth Rogen.

Awesome!! Ryan used his almost Deadpool-like sarcasm to poke fun of his fellow HollyWEIRD actors making all of these mind-numbingly out-of-touch videos and comments on social media. We love Arnold S.. BUT, the one of him sitting in his hot tub and smoking a cigar and telling everyone to relax. Really? Those of us who aren’t gazillionaires like the former Terminator are worried about our jobs, putting food on the table, and paying our bills. All Arnold has to worry about is whether his maid won’t show up due to quarantine. These HollyWEIRD liberal elitists have no clue.. Thanks Ryan for slapping them. Excellent!! 🙂
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Tuesday accepted an offer to sit down with Madonna over a drink and chat about their points of view. “I accept Madonna’s invitation with pleasure,” Le Pen told AFP. Madonna, who in the past has demonised Le Pen on stage by portraying her with a swastika on her head, made the unusual overture during a French television interview late Monday. “I would like to sit down and have a drink with her. I want to understand where she’s coming from,” she said on the network Canal+. The American singer, who superimposed the swastika on video of Le Pen’s face during a 2012 Paris concert, only last week called Le Pen’s National Front party “fascist”. In the interview she conceded: “Maybe I misunderstood Marine Le Pen. I’m not sure. I don’t want to start a war. I want peace in the world.”
As you’ll note, I’ve changed the title slightly from “far right” to conservative. I did this because the AP and Yahoo news consider Obama “moderate.” So, you have to consider the source. Plus, France is an extremely socialist country. So, if you put forth even mildly conservative policy alternatives, people like Madonna call them “fascist.” And, again, consider the source. Marine Le Pen has been drawing the ire of the leftist media because she has the audacity to suggest that maybe, just maybe, France should review its extremely liberal immigration policies in light of the recent Radical Islamic terrorist activities in that country. Yeah.. imagine that! Of COURSE France should do that! We should as well..
Another big name in Hollywood has come out of the closet, the political closet that is, the brave new world where actors can come clean about their honest political beliefs and risk being ridiculed, demonized and forever putting their careers in jeopardy by bigoted and intolerant leftists for having the audacity to go against the norms in Hollywood society as NOT being a politically-correct, America-hating communist. As the Washington Times reported, actor Charlie Sheen publicly came out of the political closet on The Flipside with Michael Loftus, joining the ranks of the courageous few in Hollywood like James Woods, Dean Cain and Clint Eastwood in the interview that took place on February 8.
Interesting.. Normally we don’t do the whole HollyWEIRD celeb thing here at The Daily Buzz because we’re already over-exposed to such irrelevant garbage. But, every once in a while we see a story, like this, that catches our eye. That, and maybe its just Friday the 13th.. Anyway, despite Charlie’s “coming out” about his Constitutional positions (which we can all definitely appreciate and respect), he DID note that he’d like his extremely liberal dad has his political side-kick if he were to ever get involved politically. So, just putting that out there….for what it’s worth.
Female rocker Shirley Manson took to her Facebook page on Monday to go after rapper Kanye West for dismissing Beck as an artist, describing him as “small and petty,” among other things. Alternative rock artist Beck took home the Album of the Year award at Sunday night’s Grammys, but in accepting the accolade, Beck inadvertently drew the ire of Kanye West. In a rant after the show, Kanye blasted both the Grammys and Beck, who he said needed to “respect artistry” and “should’ve given his award to Beyoncé.”
We try and avoid the whole celeb thing here at The Daily Buzz. There are plenty of sources in the checkout lanes at your local grocery story for that sorta irrelevant nonsense. But, every once in a while a story catches our eye, and so..what the heck? The real story here is.. Why do the Grammy’s continue to allow an obnoxious tool like Kanye West to attend their annual ceremonies after what he did back in 2009? Remember the way he treated Taylor Swift back in 2009, when Taylor won her award, and Kayne went up, snagged it out of her hand and went on some strange rant that it should have been awarded to Beyoncé? As you may recall..Taylor, who at the time was like 19, handled it with class and grace. Kanye should have been dragged off stage by security, and thrown out the back door. Well, apparently the Grammys allowed that oxygen thief to return, and he did it again…This time the target was Beck. And, btw.. What is his, pathological, and bizarre infatuation with Beyoncé anyway? Does someone need to remind Kanye that she’s married? Or is it some racial thing? I’m thinking its probably a combination of both. What a loser.. Anyway, I’m no fan of Ms. Manson.. But, he response here is spot on. Frankly, I think she’s being WAY too nice.
