Emma Gonzalez — who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and was one of the leaders of the anti-gun movement it spawned — wants to lock down the rights to her famous “We Call BS” tagline. Gonzalez took center stage at a…
It’s been four months since the world learned that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have ended their marriage.
But it seems that at least one half of the famous couple is having a little trouble letting go.
First, we heard reports that Jen was engraged by Theroux’s relationship with Selena Gomez.
Now, it seems she’s concerned about a different young starlet who may have caught her ex’s eye.
It seems Justin developed a close friendship with Emma Stone while he was still married to Jen.
Radar Online reports that in the months since Jen and Justin made their split public, he’s been spending a lot of time traveling the world with Stone.
And Jen — who reportedly was no great fan of Emma’s to begin with — is reportedly very, very unhappy about the situation.
“It bugs the hell out of Jen that Justin got close to Emma during their marriage and she isn’t taking this lying down,” a source tells Radar.
“She’s dragging Emma every chance she gets and warning pals like Jason Bateman and Jimmy Kimmel to avoid her.”
The insider says Emma has long been disliked by Aniston and her clique:
“Jen and her squad take issue with the fact that Emma never met a role she couldn’t steal from another actress [most famously ‘La La Land’ from Emma Watson],” she claims.
“I don’t think she realizes who she messed with and how far Jen’s reach is.”
That’s … pretty ominous-sounding stuff.
And apparently, Jen has a history of going medieval on women who incur her wrath:
“This is a pattern for Jen, never directing the rage or gossip at the guy who left her but instead at the next woman he hooks up with,” says the source.
“Jen is in revenge mode and Emma needs to recognize that she’s messing with somebody with a lot of loyal Hollywood friends.”
Now, Emma is an Oscar-winnng actress and one of the most in-demand talents in Hollywood, so she’s probably not too concerned about the possibility that Jen will torpedo her career.
But it’s important to bear in mind that Jen’s been one of the highest-paid actresses every year since Emma was in grade school.
That doesn’t mean she’s capable of crushing Emma like some sort of cartoon supervillain — but she probably make her life much more difficult.
Maybe Emma should just find a more drama-free relationship.
We hear Brad Pitt’s available!
Marvel says it’s bringing its first Muslim superhero to the big screen, and a couple of the universe’s smaller screen actors say it’s about time … ‘cause we need a new normal. We ran into Coby Bell and Emma Dumont at LAX — who both star in FOX’s…
Another week, another round of Justin Theroux dating rumors.
Ever since the actor confirmed his divorce from Jennifer Aniston, Theroux has been linked to a number of leading ladies in Hollywood.
Remember the brief chatter about Justin dating Aubrey Plaza?
Oh, and then he was linked to Selena Gomez for a short period of time!
It seems as if the Internet is anxious to hook Theroux up with someone, perhaps because it has married Aniston off to Brad Pitt for a second time and likely feels sorry for the former Leftovers star.
So, who is the lucky woman in this latest round of gossip?
Oscar winner Emma Stone!
According to Radar Online sources, Theroux and Stone were spotted leaving a MET Gala after-party together on Monday night.
And not just at the same time, either, the actor and the actress left in the same exact car and looked “close for comfort,” an onlooker told the aforementioned celebrity gossip website.
Theroux and Aniston filed for divorce in February following just under three years of marriage.
The news didn’t come as a total shock to many fans, considering the stars hadn’t shared any images of each other in social media in quite some time.
No exact reason was given for the unfortunate split, but multiple reports indicate that the two partly could not agree on where to live.
Theroux prefers New York City. Aniston prefers Los Angeles. And neither got along too well with the other one’s friends, either.
“Jen’s been keeping a low profile after the [break-up], so of course it was frustrating to see Justin hanging out… with beautiful women like Emma” this March at Paris Fashion Week, a source told Radar.
Indeed, around that time, Theroux shared a picture of himself, Stone and two unnamed males.
Aware that many would interpret this sort of photo as dating confirmation, Theroux made a rare joke as a caption to the image.
“Bffffs. And yes. JUST bfffffs,” he wrote to followers.
That may have been true earlier this year. And, heck, it may still be true.
But Stone dating Theroux would make some sense, right?
Both are single. Both are attractive. Both have a history of dating other well-known individuals, considering Stone famously got it on with Andrew Garfield for many years.
We’d totally be on board with these two banging, wouldn’t you?
Granted, the couple’s nickname would be a challenge (Sheroux, probably, right?), but that can be discussed at a later date.
Would YOU want to see Emma Stone go out with Justin Theroux?
Recently, Kanye West has praised Donald Trump. But not all of his political statements fall in line with what his fellow “MAGA” enthusiasts would like to see.
Kanye recently tweeted that Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist Emma Gonzalez is his hero.
Emma responded indirectly with a hard swerve … in a very classy way. Take a look.
Kanye West seems so proud of his “MAGA” hat.
Sure, his family doesn’t like it and his friends and fans feel betrayed, but he and Trump have the same “dragon energy’ so …
We guess that we know that Kanye’s priorities have always been himself and whatever whims he might have.
But as Kanye’s newly acquired pro-Trump fans are learning … he can be all over the place.
For example, Kanye tweeted this:
“My hero Emma Gonzalez,” he writes.
Emma Gonzalez is, of course, one of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that claimed 17 innocent lives.
Since surviving that horrible shooting, she has become an outspoken advocate for gun control regulations to try to prevent further senseless tragedies.
Because of this, she has become the target of hate and even the subject of multiple deranged conspiracy theories.
(Since the Sandy Hook shooting, it has become increasingly common for far right conspiracy theorists to refer to mass shootings as “false flag” operations or hoaxes staged by the government or Illuminati or whatever)
It is an understatement to say that Kanye’s admiration for Emma is not entirely in keeping with the Trump agenda.
Emma responded indirectly, copying Kanye’s statement to name her own hero: James Shaw Jr.
Shaw disarmed the shooter at the Waffle House shooting in April, using her bare hands (and getting severe burns) to save the lives of every single survivor.
Since then, Shaw has dismissed the idea that he is a hero, and has used his newfound platform to raise money for the families of the victims who died that day.
He is certainly worthy of praise and admiration.
And it was an intensely classy way for Emma to redirect attention brought on by Kanye to someone whose heroism she admires.
(Yes, she swerved him, and yes, we are aware that the term swerve in this context comes from Kanye’s own lyrics)
But Kanye had still more to say about Emma.
“Inspired by Emma,” he wrote under this selfie.
Some who saw this wondered if Kanye is talking about genuine inspiration, or if he is referring to the similarities between his haircut and Emma’s.
(It is worth noting, by the way, that Emma’s haircut is not a feminist statement or an expression of her sexuality — she’s bi — but just a practical choice for Florida’s hellish swamp climate)
Kanye being Kanye, he is probably being sincere.
That’s honestly nice of him, though as the world as seen recently as Kanye compares himself and Trump to dragons, Kanye’s admiration does not always mean that he shares their views.
It may be that Kanye admires Emma’s fight and her passion — as so many do.
That doesn’t mean that he treasures his signed “MAGA” hat any less.
Kanye’s Twitter activity recently has been bizarre, to the point where his wife, Kim Kardashian, has been using her powerful social media platform to defend him.
Kanye’s friends who loathe Trump may agree to disagree with Kanye and patiently explain things when they come up … but a lot of his fans feel betrayed.
This is the man who slammed George W. Bush for his inexcusable inaction during Hurricane Katrina.
It’s hard for them to understand why Kanye would admire a man who is beloved by white nationalists and whose campaign and administration have been filled with racism.
But perhaps they’ll take comfort in the knowledge that Kanye still has a ton of admiration for a lot of worthy people, like Emma.
It has now come to light that she solicited other celebrities to join Nxivm.
Was she trying to turn Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson into sex slaves for Keith Raniere?
On Friday, Allison Mack entered a plea of “not guilty” for sex trafficking and forced labor.
See, even if you pretend that it’s “empowering,” it is in fact illegal to coerce people to have sex through blackmail and the threat of beatings.
Yes, it’s still illegal even if the initials are already branded on that woman’s body.
Mack is, of course, accused of recruiting women to join the pyramid scheme and then selecting which women would be ordered to Raniere’s bed.
And now it’s come out that she may have very brazenly tried to recruit two very familiar names over twitter:
Beloved Harry Potter star Emma Watson and sometimes controversial American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson.
“I’m a fellow actress like yourself and involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig,” Mack wrote.
Her tweet continued:
“I’d love to chat if you’re open.”
A month later, when Watson still hadn’t taken the bait, Mack wrote:
“I participate in a unique human development and women’s movement I’d love to tell you about.”
Well … it certainly is unique as far as women’s movements go.
Allison Mack also wrote to Kelly Clarkson.
With Clarkson, she used a somewhat vaguer approach, apparently hoping to dazzle the Since You’ve Been Gone singer with her “star power.”
“I heard through the grapevine that you’re a fan of Smallville.”
Smallville ran for 10 seasons. Its fan base was relatively small yet very dedicated.
“I’m a fan of yours as well! I’d love to chat sometime.”
Those are deceptive friendly words for such an ominous tweet.
While it doesn’t look like Watson or Clarkson fell for Mack’s invitation, that doesn’t make this any less bizarre.
It’s not surprising, however.
Mack was said to have quickly become one of Raniere’s favorites because he liked having a celebrity (or close enough) to recruit more people to Nxivm.
It only stands to reason that, either of her own volition or acting on Raniere’s orders, Mack would seek other celebrities with whom she might have an “in.”
Emma Watson is an outspoken feminist, so Mack clearly hoped that calling Nxivm a “women’s movement” would help to draw her in.
And since Kelly Clarkson apparently likes Smallville, well, who wouldn’t want to hear from an actor from a show that they love?
It’s not clear if she was determined to rope them into joining the sex slave cult, or was just trying to get them both in the “normal” self-help part of the organization to draw in more members.
There’s no doubt that Allison Mack was a major recruitment tool for Nxivm.
But some have called into question how much a willing participant she was in the abuse that she allegedly doled out.
We don’t know all of the evidence that the prosecution will present, but prosecutors may find themselves in a tricky situation.
If they successfully prove that the women in Raniere’s DOS program were unwilling participants and sex trafficking victims because of abuse and blackmail and brainwashing …
… Might Mack’s defense team use that to argue that she herself was also a victim?
They might also try to argue that, if Mack was capable of making her own choices, that the victims were all there of their own free will?
We’re not saying that we believe those arguments, but this is definitely a complicated case.
We’ll see how things work out.
Jenelle Evans really loves her guns.
Therefore, it’s reasonable to wonder whether the Teen Mom 2 star dislikes anyone who is pushing for comprehensive gun control.
And it’s even more reasonable to wonder about this after Evans shared a questionable meme on Facebook yesterday.
The controversial MTV personality at least appeared to be mocking outspoken Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez via a photo that featured a young woman with a buzz cut blowing smoke in the face of someone.
Along with this picture, the meme included a message that read:
Emma Gonzalez puffing vape smoke into a classmate’s face after calling him a racial slur.
The image was taken from a Facebook account that belongs to “Dolan Trump,” which does bill itself as being a “progressive [and] independent Bernie Sanders supporter.”
“Can anyone verify this picture?” the original caption reads. “Just saw this on conservative Facebook. Huge if true.”
Put those latter facts/sentences together and it’s pretty clear the meme is meant to mock those who have been disparaging Gonzalez…
… but it’s a strange and confusing way in which to accomplish this goal.
Gonzalez is a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
She was inside the school on February 14 when a gunman opened fire, killing 17 of her classmates and teachers.
In the days and weeks since, Gonzalez has been among the most vocal proponents of gun control legislation, appearing on talk shows and doing all she can to pressure Congress to pass various laws along these lines.
She helped organize the March for Our Lives on March 24 and gave one of the most memorable speeches at this event, largely because she held a six-plus minute moment of silence at one point for the Parkland victims.
(She remained quiet for the same duration of time it took the shooter to kill all 17 of these young men and women.)
So you can probably understand why Evans is being dragged for the impression that she is dissing Gonzalez in any way.
Except that Evans swears she isn’t doing so.
Yes, the Teen Mom cast member is now a member of the NRA.
And, yes, she was featured in a social media photo shooting a gun the day after this tragedy occurred in Parkland.
But Evans is aware of the backlash she’s received for her post and made it clear in the Comments section of her Facebook page that the meme was only meant as a “joke.”
We actually believe her this time around.
Jenelle has not done much to engender good will around here, but if you look back at the original source of the meme, it is hard to argue that this was intended to be a parody.
Perhaps a poor parody, but a parody nonetheless.
With her husband having recently been fired by MTV, the other major question now surrounding Evans is whether she’ll continue to film Teen Mom 2.
Insiders say Evans thinks she holds a lot of leverage over the network and is refusing to shoot upcoming scenes until they meet her demands.
We can’t say we’re big fans of Jenelle as a human being.
But as a source of entertainment? Come on! How can you not be?!?
Give her anything she wants, producers.
