Backlash after Chelsea Handler quickly blames Republicans for Texas shooting

In the first hours after the deadly mass shooting at a Texas church, many details about the massacre and the gunman’s identity were still unclear — but it didn’t stop comedian Chelsea Handler from blaming Republicans for the shooting, in a tweet that sparked backlash. “Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans,” the former “Chelsea” host, who has gone after the GOP before on issues such as gun control, wrote. Her comments swiftly received criticism on Twitter with many chastising the star for politicizing the event while it is ongoing. “The bodies aren’t even cold yet and you are politicizing them. You really have a dark heart,” one user wrote. “You’re a hypocrite and part of the problem with your constant tweets of hate that separates the country,” another said. “Does your career depend on you being a vile, callous person, or is that a personal choice?” a user wrote. Others decided not to mince words and simply shared their unabashed thoughts with Handler. “You are a terrible human being,” wrote one. “Are you really that ignorant?” another said.

Yes, she really is.  Chelsea is the poster child for just how out-of-touch, and clueless, the extreme, agenda-driven, liberals are in HollyWEIRD.  She really has no clue how offensive, and offensively stupid/ignorant she is…and how offensive and hurtful her words are.  Instead of some thoughtful, reasoned commentary that might be supportive to the poor folks in Texas trying to recover from this unspeakable evil that happened in their small community, Chelsea used the occasion to grandstand and do the only thing she (and her liberal friends) knows how to do; attack conservatives and/or Republicans…which probably made up the majority of that small church’s congregation, if I had to guess.  Chelsea is a disgusting, self-righteous, elitist moron.  No wonder she got cancelled….twice.

Snoop Dogg stands over Trump’s corpse on new album cover

Snoop Dogg is pictured standing over President Trump’s dead body on the cover of his new EP titled, “Make America Crip Again.” Snoop posted a copy of the cover on Instagram, showing himself holding a party cup while standing over a corpse covered with the American flag and complete with a toe tag reading, “Trump.” It appears to be an homage to Ice Cube’s 1991 cover for “Death Certificate.” “The President says he wants to make America great again. F— that s—. We gonna make America crip again,” Snoop raps on the song “M.A.C.A,” Rolling Stone reported. The rapper, who has spoken out against the president in the past, told the magazine that the album is not meant to be viewed as a political stunt. “It’s not a statement or a political act: it’s just good music. Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation so I’d rather Make America Crip Again,” the rapper said earlier this month. “In my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead. “A lot of people glorify the gang-banging and violence but forget that in the beginning, the Crip’s main and sole purpose was to be the reflection of the Black Panthers,” he said. “They looked after kids, provided after-school activities, fed them and stepped in as role models and father figures.” This isn’t the first time Snoop has imagined the death of Mr. Trump. In March, he was filmed shooting a toy gun at a clown dressed as the president in a music video for “Lavender.” Mr. Trump responded to the video on Twitter, writing, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”

Well, maybe not “jail time,”  But, there certainly would be non-stop hand-wringing, protests, and probably even riots courtesy of the usual list of self-righteous, sanctimonious, entitlement-minded, black, liberal race hustlers (i.e. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, etc. etc.).  And we ALL know it..   Calvin (aka “Snoop Dogg”) is a former member of the Crips gang, and has been in and out of prison for selling and using cocaine, among many other things.  In short, he’s garbage…and yet, he is revered by the liberal entertainment media.  It figures he would idolize the Black Panther Party; a socialist/communist, black, domestic terrorist organization whose members have assassinated cops.  Word..

‘Buffy’ star James Marsters reflects on difficult scene: ‘It was a horrible day’

James Marsters is reflecting on his iconic, bleached-blond super villain character Spike 20 years after “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” premiered. “To Joss Whedon, evil is not cool and I really respect that — Spike was put up as cool and evil only because he was a disposable character,” Marsters, 55, told Page Six. “He was supposed to die.” The “Runaways” actor told us that Whedon had intended for Spike to get killed off by Angel, the show’s moral vampire, early on. Whedon, who created the show, was not happy when fans began to like Spike. “It was not supposed to be romantic, but the audience was responding that way and Joss was freaking out,” he told us. “He backed me up against a wall one day and said, ‘I don’t care how popular you are, you are dead.’” He continued, “Spike was the wrong boyfriend. Spike was not ready for Buffy during the run of the show. He was way below her and because the reaction was so strong … they had to do something dramatic to prove that wasn’t true.” The move, which became one of the show’s biggest controversies, came in the sixth season of the series when Spike attempts to rape Buffy in the bathroom of her home before she fights him off. “It was the hardest day of my professional career. It was a horrible day,” Marsters told us. “I personally don’t like to watch that stuff. I will not go to a movie if I know that’s in there. I will turn the TV off if it pops up. I will pass on auditions if thats what they want me to do, but I was contracted to do it.” Marsters says the storyline came from one of the female writers who threw herself on an ex-boyfriend in college in hopes of him taking her back. “She went to his apartment and was convinced if they made love one more time that everything would be fine,” he explained. “He had to physically push her off and that just crushed her and stuck with her all her life.” The actor says he has no regrets about doing the scene and despite the mixed reviews, it set Spike up for his “journey toward redemption.” Marsters will be back on TV Nov. 21 starring as a super villain (of course) in Marvel’s “Runaways” on Hulu.

Here at The Daily Buzz, we rarely get into inside-HollyWEIRD nonsense and post entertainment articles.  But, c’mon..  This is Buffy; a classic.  How could we resist?   🙂

 

George Lopez booed off stage for repeated Trump jokes

Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd. We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball. An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in the front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.” We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.” Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.” We’re told Lopez also told a joke about Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, saying, “I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels ­underneath.” When the audience did not respond well, he quipped, “Are you El Chapo people?” in reference to the drug kingpin who has used tunnels to evade authorities. Lopez then announced a video segment — but he did not return to the stage, and a local newscaster took over the hosting duties. TV host Chris Parente posted on Twitter, “big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.” But a source close to the comedian insisted to Page Six that Lopez’s segment was “only supposed to be four minutes,” even though he was listed as the night’s emcee. Lenny Kravitz performed at the gala, which raised $1.65 million. Reps had no comment.

And who exactly is the real racist here?  It’s George Lopez.  Here he is, a man who has a net worth of over $35 MILLION talking about “white privilege?”  Then, of course, he had to make Mexican jokes intended as a jab at Trump, after he had already been asked to nicely avoid such topics as it wasn’t the right place/time.  And, then to make matters worse, he takes a swipe at the guy in the front row who just donated $250K to charity?!?!  Wow..  what an ass!  George is your poster child of an extreme liberal, self-righteous, out-of-touch, HollyWEIRD elitist who just doesn’t get it…even when he’s beeing booed off the stage.  Moron..

ESPN’s Wilbon Compares Jerry Jones to a Slave Owner for Requiring Players to Stand for National Anthem

Monday on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption,” co-host Mike Wilbon likened Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner because he said Cowboys players will either stand for the national anthem or not play. “[T]he word that comes to my mind, I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it, is ‘plantation,’” Wilbon told co-host Tony Kornheiser. “The players are here to serve me and they will do what I want no matter how much I pay them. They are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and mine.”

That’s because you’re a self-righteous, nauseating, ignorant, black racist, liberal tool!  The NFL requires it’s players to wear certain clothing, certain labels, and on and on..   That doesn’t make the NFL or it’s owners “plantation” owners.  It’s called business.  I’m sure Mr. Wilbon is required to wear certain clothing while at work.  And, if the NFL ever decides to pull it’s collective head out of its ass, and requires the players to show a little respect and stand during the playing of our National Anthem, then it’ll be good for that business.  Oh.. and someone ought to explain to Mr. Wilbon that slaves are not paid. Obviously he wasn’t a history major.  These obnoxious players, who claim they’ve being “oppressed,” and have been disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem are paid millions.  Can I please be that “oppressed?!?”  This is yet another reminder of why I don’t watch ESPN..  Unreal..

Opinion: The anti-Trump late-night comedy lineup keeps plummeting

Stephen Colbert joked about the president’s “feeble, fucking anemic firefly of a soul.” Seth Meyers teased that the vice president was somehow “already sunburned” before his visit to devastated Puerto Rico. And Jimmy Kimmel, that comedian turned public conscience, lectured all week long about everything from healthcare to mental health to gun control. But chances are good you didn’t watch any of it because viewership isn’t doing so well. Of course, they’re still the kings of late-night comedy. Nobody has cast out that lineup because nobody has really showed up to watch. While America was laughing at Twitter and watching YouTube videos, late night was slipping. Writing in the Transom, Ben Domenech of The Federalist points out that the late-night viewership of ABC, CBS, plus NBC this week barely broke 8 million viewers. Not long ago retired NBC funnyman Jay Leno was bringing in 6 million viewers all on his own. What caused the network comics to start flopping? Obviously, the generational demographics and technological developments can’t be discounted — millennials don’t watch as much television, and if they do it’s online or after the fact. Assuming those younger viewers aren’t suddenly going to stay up late to watch broadcast TV, then maybe something else has to give. But compare the late-night comedy numbers to Sean Hannity over at Fox News and Rachel Maddow at MSNBC. Those hacks don’t tell jokes (at least not well, anyway) but they still bring in more views. Domenech points out that Hannity averaged 3.5 million viewers, Maddow another 2.65 million last week. (Granted, these shows air before 11 p.m.) Perhaps the late-night lineup should consider dialing down the politics to keep the viewers they have and stop alienating the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump. At the very least, it’s worth a try.

No kidding!!  For example, you have someone like Jimmy Kimmel, who actually used to be funny, but is now a liberal late-night DNC talking points cry-babby.  Who wants to watch that nonsense?  The numbers are dwindling.  And don’t get me started on the whole nauseating thank-athon for Hillary…WHO LOST!!  lol  These late-night guys, are NOT “late-night comedy.”  They’re now just late-night liberal political hacks…and THAT is why their ratings are tanking.  People don’t want to stay up late to watch that!  Thanks to Philp Wegmann for that excellent op/ed.

Netflix raising prices in the U.S. for the first time in two years

Netflix is raising the price for its most popular U.S. video streaming plan by 10 percent— a move that could boost its profits but slow the subscriber growth that drives its stock price. The change announced Thursday affects most of Netflix’s 53 million U.S. subscribers. Netflix will now charge $11 per month instead of $10 for a plan that includes HD and allows up people to simultaneously watch programs on two different internet-connected devices. The price for another plan that includes ultra-high definition, or 4K, video, is going up by 17 percent, to $14 from $12 a month. A plan that limits subscribers to one screen at a time without high-definition will remain at $8 a month. The increase would be the first in two years for Netflix, although it won’t seem that way for millions of subscribers. That’s because Netflix temporarily froze its rates for long-time subscribers the last two times it raised its prices, delaying the most recent increases until the second half of last year for them. Netflix isn’t giving anyone a break this time around. It will start emailing notifications about the new prices to affected subscribers Oct. 19, giving them 30 days to accept the higher rates, switch to a cheaper plan or cancel the service. The price increase are being driven by Netflix’s desire to fatten its profit margins as it spends more money to finance a critically acclaimed slate of original programming that includes shows such as “House of Cards,” ”Orange Is The New Black,” ”Stranger Things,” and “The Crown.” Those series’ success helped Netflix land more Emmy award nominations than any TV network besides HBO this year. It’s also the main reason Netflix’s U.S. audience has nearly doubled since the February 2013 debut of “House of Cards” kicked off its expansion into original programming. But paying for exclusive TV series and films hasn’t been cheap. Netflix expects to spend $6 billion a year alone on programming this year, and the expenses are likely to rise as it competes against streaming rivals such as Amazon, Hulu, YouTube and, potentially, Apple for the rights to future shows and movies. Both Amazon (at $99 per year, or about $8.25 per month) and Hulu ($10 per month) now offer lower prices than Netflix. Netflix believes its price rate is justified by recent service improvements, such as a feature that allows people to download shows onto phones or other devices to watch them offline.

Guess we’ll see what the masses say..
