Tyler the Creator Body-Shames Kendall Jenner: She’s Got No Ass!

It’s insultingly reductive to say the Kardashians are only famous because of Kim’s sex tape or the sisters’ famously curvy figures.

The entire family (with the possible exception of Rob), has worked hard to build an iconic brand, but there’s no denying that large posteriors still spring to mind at the mention of the name “Kardashian.”

Kendall Jenner may not be a Kardashian by name, but she’s no less a member of the Kard clan than Kim, Khloe or Kourtney.

So when Tyler the Creator called Kendall out for being less curvy than her sisters during a recent performance, the body-shaming insult carried additional resonance.

“I want everybody to shake they ass when this f–king song come on,” Tyler said on stage.

“Hey A$ AP Rocky, shake that ass. Shake it on Jaden [Smith], he next to you, he might like it with his weird ass. Where Kendall? She ain’t go no ass but shake them bones.”

Kendall Jenner-Tyler the Creator

Suffice it to say, things got quite weird at Tyler’s performance over the weekend.

Obviously, it’s his comments about Kendall’s figure that are drawing the most attention — though encouraging A$ AP Rocky to shake his ass on Jaden Smith is pretty odd, too.

But it’s possible that all the uproar over Tyler body-shaming Kendall is baseless.

It’s important to note that Tyler and Kendall are friends, and he has a history of publicly and playfully mocking her.

At Coachella in 2015, Tyler called out Kendall out in brutal fashion during his set on the main stage.

“Kendall Jenner over here thinking she’s cute and sh-tt. Hey Kendall, Kendall, Kendall, I’m over here to your right. F-ck you,” he said.

While many in attendance were shocked by the comment, Kendall responded by playfully flipping Tyler the bird.

He later clarified the nature of their relationship on Instagram, writing:

“@KendallJenner PEOPLE REALLY THINK I HATE YOU LOVE HAHAHAH.”

At one point it was widely rumored that Tyler and Kendall were dating, but the rapper shot those rumors down, jokingly (we think) tweeting:

“Not possible, we’re both gay.”

So in all likelihood, Tyler was just having a laugh with an old friend when he commented on Kendall’s physique.

Now, there are some who will argue that even if they’re friends and the comment was made in jest, it’s still not okay for Tyler to publicly speak about Kendall in those terms.

They may have a point — but the joke is really quite tame compared to some of the other things Tyler has said over the years..

We’re not saying that makes it okay — just pointing out that Kendall probably wasn’t terribly shocked.

Stan Lee Dies; Marvel Comics Creator Was 95

Stan Lee, arguably the best known comic book creator of all-time, passed away Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

He was 95 years old.

Lee’s daughter confirmed this very sad piece of news to TMZ.

The website writes that Lee was rushed from his home in Hollywood Hills to the aforementioned facility, although it’s unclear at this time what medical condition prompted the emergency.

The legendary writer, however, had suffered numerous illnesses over the last year or so, including a semi-recent bout of pneumonia and a number of vision issues.

He had receded from the public eye for most of 2018 as a result.

Lee started out in the comic business back in 1939.

Along with Jack Kirby, he co-founded Marvel in 1961 via the introduction of The Fantastic Four.

He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers, among many other notable, memorable and beloved characters.

Lee was always revered in the comic book universe, but he became a true pop culture icon about a decade ago after the success of the first Iron Man movie.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has basically taken over the movie world in that time and Lee has made a cameo in every Marvel film to date.

In 2009, the Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment for $ 4 billion.

Three years later, The Avengers grossed $ 1.52 billion worldwide take and two years after that, Lee acknowledged his important role not just in the entertainment industry — but in the world as a whole.

“I used to think what I did was not very important,” he told the Chicago Tribune in April of 2014, adding at the time:

“People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes.

“But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed.”

A native of Manhattan, Lee wrote, art-directed and edited most of Marvel’s series and newspaper strips.

He also wrote a monthly comics’ column, “Stan’s Soapbox,” signing off with his signature phrase, “Excelsior!”

Lee played a vital role as Marvel transitioned into TV during the 1980s, serving as narrator on animated series like Incredible Hulk and X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men, and executive producing the 1990s animated series Spider-Man.

In 2002, Lee published an autobiography, Excelsior! The Amazing Life of Stan Lee.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse will be the next installment of the Marvel film franchise and will be released next month; it’s very safe to assume there will be a dedication to Lee in the credits.

The writer’s survivors include a daughter, J.C., and younger brother, Larry Lieber, who works as a writer and artist for Marvel. Another daughter, Jan, died in infancy.

Lee’s wife, Joan, was a hat model whom he married in 1947. She passed away last year.

Said J.C. to TMZ shortly after confirming her dad’s death:

“My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.”

May he rest in peace.

Mark Schwahn, One Tree Hill Creator, Accused of Rampant Sexual Misconduct

Over the past few weeks, accusations of sexual harassment have been leveled against numerous powerful men in Hollywood.

But few allegations have been like this:

On Monday night, the female cast and many crew members from One Tree Hill came together to write an open letter that called out series creator Mark Schwahn for years of unchecked sexual misconduct.

The actresses were inspired to take this unusual step after writer Audrey Wauchope (who currently works on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) Tweeted on Saturday that she and a colleague were sexually harassed years ago during their time writing for an unnamed series.

Wauchope did not cite Schwahn by name in her barrage of Tweets, either.

But she did write the following:

“Female writers would try to get the spot where the showrunner wouldn’t sit as to not be touched. Often men would help out by sitting next to him, thus protecting the women.

“Sometimes we wouldn’t luck out and he’d just squeeze his disgusting body in between us and put his arms around us, grinning.

“He pet hair. He massaged shoulders. I know he did more but not to me so they’re not my stories to share.”

Wauchope went on to say that the showrunner passed around naked photos of an actress he had slept with, unbeknownst to the actress, and that he tried talking a writer out of getting married because he wanted a chance to have sex with her.

It’s now clear that Wauchope was referring to Mark Schwahn.

In a joint statement – signed by One Tree Hill stars such as Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz – the female cast members of this former CW hit backed up Wauchope’s claims and alleged Schwahn manipulated many of them “psychologically and emotionally.”

Here is what the powerful letter says:

All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another.

To use terminology that has become familiar as the systemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn’s behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an “open secret.”

Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally. More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress.

Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be.

Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing, to downright illegal. And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe.

More than one woman on our show had her career trajectory threatened.

It continues:

The through line in all of this was, and still is, our unwavering support of and faith in one another. We confided in each other.

We set up safe spaces to talk about his behavior and how to handle it. To warn new women who joined our ranks.

We understood that a lot of it was orchestrated in ways that kept it out of sight for the studio back home. We also understood that no one was fully unaware.

The lack of action that has been routine, the turning of the other cheek, is intolerable.

We collectively want to echo the calls of women everywhere that vehemently demand change, in all industries.

Many of us were told, during filming, that coming forward to talk about this culture would result in our show being canceled and hundreds of lovely, qualified, hard-working, and talented people losing their jobs.

This is not an appropriate amount of pressure to put on young girls.

Many of us since have stayed silent publicly but had very open channels of communication in our friend group and in our industry, because we want Tree Hill to remain the place “where everything’s better and everything’s safe” for our fans; some of whom have said that the show quite literally saved their lives.

But the reality is, no space is safe when it has an underlying and infectious cancer. We have worked at taking our power back, making the conventions our own, and relishing in the good memories.

But there is more work to be done.

And it concludes:

We are all deeply grateful for Audrey’s courage. For one another. And for every male cast mate and crew member who has reached out to our group of women to offer their support these last few days.

They echo the greater rallying cry that must lead us to change: Believe Women. We are all in this together.

The message is signed “With Love and Courage” by:

  • Sophia Bush
  • Hilarie Burton
  • Bethany Joy Lenz
  • Danneel Harris
  • Michaela McManus
  • Kate Voegele
  • Daphne Zuniga
  • India de Beaufort
  • Bevin Prince
  • Jana Kramer
  • Shantel Van Santen
  • Allison Munn

It is also signed by the “Brave Crew And All the rest of the Women We Worked With Who Are Finding Their Voices as We Speak.”

Schwahn currently runs The Royals on E!.

In a statement Monday, the network said it is “monitoring the information carefully” and is “committed to providing a safe working environment in which everyone is treated respectfully and professionally.”
