Travis Scott removed a trans model from the night version of his “Astroworld” album cover, and although she’s publicly taking it in stride … Travis is getting some backlash that hints at bigotry. Amanda Lepore tells TMZ she was simply too…
Back in June, Josiah Duggar married Lauren Swanson in the sort of massively-attended wedding his family has become known for.
In many ways, it was the typical Duggar nuptial event.
But there were several important differences.
For one thing, Josiah and Lauren’s wedding was even more well-documented than the usual Duggar wedding, with TLC crafting the big day into a Counting On season premiere event that ran for longer than two hours.
On top of that, Josiah’s not your typical Duggar.
He’s often regarded as the family’s resident rebel, and that’s especially apparent in his love life.
You see, unlike his other married siblings, Lauren is not Josiah’s first love interest.
If you’re a longtime Duggar aficionado, you might remember Marjorie Jackson from Josiah Duggar’s first courtship.
Their relationship came to an end abruptly and for reasons that remain mysterious.
Of course, folks who have paid close attention to Marjorie’s Instagram page in recent weeks think they may have solved the mystery.
Marjorie recently posted the above pic on Instagram.
“Knocked out a little worldwide travel within a few blocks over the weekend…” she captioned the photo.
“Now I’m ready for a trip to the REAL Trevi fountain, NYC, and Eiffel Tower. Anyone up for a weekend trip?”
Now that may not seem very scandalous — and it’s not — but it would certainly be enough to shock the Duggar clan.
Las Vegas? Shorts on an unmarried woman?!
Why doesn’t she just slaughter a goat and take the carcass to a Marilyn Manson concert as her date?!
Marjorie doubled-down on her scantily clad attire with the above photo of herself in Arches National Park.
“The arches in Moab were bea(Utah)ful!! #offthebucketlist #roadtrip,” she captioned the pic.
Yes, folks were less shocked by Marjorie’s horrendous pun than by her exposed calves.
After all, that sort of thing is a major violation of the Duggar dress code.
All this willfulness has left fans wondering — was Marjorie 86’ed because she refused to comply with the rules of Josiah’s family?
Or is she celebrating the fact that with Josiah off the market, her connection to reality TV’s most conservative clan is well and truly severed?
Either way, it looks as though Marjorie is thoroughly enjoying life post-Duggar!
Khloe Kardashian’s fans may know that Tristan Thompson is just too dumb to be faithful, but that doesn’t mean that they’re willing to accept it.
Tristan took to Instagram to ask his baby mama what nice romantic spot the two should visit.
Commenters could not resist roasting him and the results are … hilarious.
On Instagram, Khloe shared a photo of a pink beach and wrote: “Take me please” in her captions.
Tristan decided to leave a publicly visible comment.
Perhaps he wasn’t thinking, perhaps he was feeling romantic, or perhaps Tristan’s still trying to rebuild his image with Khloe’s fans.
Whatever his reason, Tristan wrote: “Where do you wanna go my love?”
Almost immediately, his words racked up hundreds upon hundreds of replies from Khloe’s fans who had some suggestions for him.
According to TooFab, Tristan’s comment has over 1,800 replies, and some of these are pure gold.
“Somewhere where she can be loved and respected by a real man,” one suggested.
Possibly the best comment of the bunch was: “Which love are you talking about, you gotta be more specific.”
Another fan suggested that Tristan should take Khloe “to before 2016 before Tristan was her bae.”
“To a marriage counselor,” one commenter suggested, though of course Khloe and Tristan are not married.
Another chimed in with “Couple’s therapy.”
Tristan was advised to take Khloe “somewhere where you don’t take her granted.”
“You need to go to church,” another wrote.
(In general, we don’t recommend pushing people to change their personal religious habits, even as a joke)
Another commenter suggested that Tristan could dazzle Khloe with the tourist attractions on “Faithful island.”
Yet another said that Khloe would be happier “probably away from him.”
“You better take her ANYWHERE she wanna go bro,” another commenter.
That one seemed almost on Tristan’s side, suggesting that he owes Khloe and needs to act like it if he wants to keep this relationship going.
Another, poking fun at the names of many Caribbean island, suggested a trip to “St. Loyalty.”
Fun fact: Catholicism has a number of saints who are considered to be patron saints of “difficult marriages.” If Tristan and Khloe were married, that would be fodder for some obscure burns.
A comment suggested that Tristan should take Khloe “far far away from you.”
That would be sending, not taking.
“Where the faithful men at,” another wrote.
Interestingly, Khloe’s own sister, Kourtney, had a reply to Tristan’s comment.
Kourtney simply wrote: “good one.”
Unless Kourt was suggesting that Tristan himself is a good one, which would be kind of funny, it sounds like she was being a little shady.
Kourtney may have been chiming in about another comment — applauding the roasting that Tristan was receiving.
Or Kourtney may have been simply laughing at the notion that Tristan would take Khloe on vacation, treating his comment itself as a joke.
Khloe seems to be Tristan’s only fan these days.
It’s been almost a year since Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell got married, and for the most part, the young couple has stuck to the Duggar script.
Kendra got pregnant on her honeymoon, and she’s happily played the role of doting wife in a number of promotional videos the Duggars have posted online.
The couple even participated in the making of a TLC special about Kendra’s delivery, granting more access to the network’s camera crews than any of Joseph’s siblings ever had.
But even though Joe and Kendra haven’t shied away from participating in the family business, they don’t seem to enjoy the spotlight as much as other Duggars.
In fact, the newlyweds have raised eyebrows with their refusal to interact with fans on social media.
For past Duggar couples, Instagram profiles have been regarded as a sacred privilege.
Duggar kids aren’t permitted to engage in social media until after they’re engaged, and usually, they take advantage of their new freedom as soon as possible.
But Joe and Kendra have yet to create accounts either as individuals or as a couple.
And fans can’t help but wonder why that is.
The answer might have something to do with the fact that Joe and Kendra are deeply conservative in their beliefs — even by Duggar standards.
Like his siblings, Joe is an adherent to the teachings of disgraced minister Bill Gothard and his Institute for Basic Life Principles.
But unlike the others, Joe took his devotion to the organization step farther in his youth by attending the Gothard-founded ALERT Academy, a sort of faith-based boot camp for fundamentalist young men.
“This drove me to depend even more on God,” Joseph recently wrote of his experience.
“As a young man, I can say this was one of the greatest things God used to strengthen and build my faith in Him.”
Joe is commonly regarded as one of the more practical and serious Duggars and his stringent devotion to his parents’ belief systems was evident during his courtship with Kendra.
The Duggar courtship rules are already notoriously strict, but Joe and Kendra held themselves to an even higher standard of behavior.
Joe recruited his siblings to serve as chaperones and ensure that he and Kendra stuck to their own rules.
The couple limited themselves to periods of physical contact that lasted no longer than three seconds and only allowed themselves to “side-hug” and say “I love you” after they got engaged.
For all the recent talk of “Duggar rebels,” it looks as though at least one of Jim Bob and Michelle’s offspring has gone in the opposite direction by being even more conservative than his parents.

See, fans think that, because Demi was partying after celebrating Dani’s birthday, that Dani and other friends are somehow to blame for her relapse and overdose.
Dani has finally broken her silence and is imploring Demi’s fans to stop sending death threats to the ones who love Demi the most.
Demi Lovato’s guitarist thinks that Demi’s friends are to blame for her relapse and overdose. Dani Vitale says that no, they all love and care about Demi.
“I care about Demi just like all of you do,” Dani writes on Instagram.
It’s worth noting that she turned off comments on the post. We can only imagine the sort of vitriol that she might otherwise receive under her words.
“I have not said anything about this situation until now,” Dani acknowledges.
Just because you don’t write about it on social media doesn’t mean that you don’t care. Obviously.
Dani explains that her silence is “because her recovery has been of the most importance.”
“I was not with Demi when the incident happened,” Dani clarifies.
She shouldn’t have to defend herself, of course, but perhaps that explanation will put people’s minds at ease.
“I am with her now,” Dani writes. “And will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you.”
Danie emphasizes: “There is no need for any negativity towards the ones who care about Demi at this time.”
“There is too much of it in this world as it is,” she explains. She’s right about that.
Dani’s heart goes out to Demi’s fans, many of whom are young and have never dealt with such a sudden health crisis in a pop star.
“I know you’re all feeling lost without her at this moment in time,” Dani writes.
“Remember,” Dani implores them. “That you have always been a community of Lovatics who LOVE.”
Sometimes, a lot of people forget right and wrong when they’re looking at a screen instead of a person’s face.
Writing a message on social media is not the same as screaming into a void.
Dani asks: “Please remember that when you take out your phones and start typing.”
That’s good advice for anyone, not just for Lovatics.
“Remember that we all love her more than we can ever put into words,” Dani reminds the world.
“Please,” Dani concludes. “Continue to send her love during her recovery.”
The sad truth of the matter is that there are cases in which friends are at least partly to blame for an overdose.
Factors like peer pressure aside, if someone provides the wrong dosage or the wrong drug, or if they simply fail to check on a person, that person has not been a good friend and may even bear some responsibility for an overdose.
When people who know very few of the facts of an overdose decide that they know exactly what happened, that’s a problem.
To make matters worse, well, they really should not be sending death threats. To anyone. They should not be bombarding Demi’s loved ones with hate now or at any other time.
And, again, Dani literally wasn’t even there for the overdose.
It’s been three days since Demi Lovato suffered an overdose that nearly claimed her life.
Friends, family, and fans of the singer are still reeling from the news, and unfortunately, some have chosen to lash out in destructive ways.
Earlier this week, Lovato’s guitarist, Mike Manning, blamed her friends for the overdose and threatened to “expose them” as addicts.
To be clear, it’s understandable to feel a confusing mix of emotions at a time like this, but unless it turns out those friends held her down and stuck a needle in her arm, it is 100 percent not okay to blame or shame Demi’s fellow users.
If this situation has taught us anything, it’s that addiction doesn’t discriminate, and the addict begging for change on the street deserves to be treated with the same dignity as a multi-platinum recording artist.
Manning hasn’t launched his horrendously ill-conceived campaign yet, but the misdirected outrage from fans who are desperate for someone to blame has already begun, and predictably, it’s made an awful situation considerably worse.
In the hours before her hospitalization, Demi was spotted doing shots at an LA bar.
Sources say she and several friends were celebrating the birthday of Dani Vitale, Demi’s longtime friend and backup dancer.
Little is known about what took place in the hours after the group left the bar, but since Demi was last seen celebrating Dani’s birthday, several foolish fans have decided to exacerbate whatever guilt of grief she might already be feeling by harassing Vitale online.
Insiders claim Vitale has been receiving non-stop hate messages and death threats.
This, despite the fact that she Dani is a teetotaler who has reportedly been a much-needed source of strength for Demi in the dark days following her overdose.
“Dani spent the whole day at the hospital with her,” a source close to Vitale told Radar. “Dani and Demi have known each other for a long time, and are very close.
“She’s very upset about it,” the insider added.
“She is very straight; she doesn’t do drugs.”
Despite the fact that Dani has apparently devoted herself to ensuring that Demi receives the best care and treatment possible, hundreds of fans (many of them tagging the vigilante Manning, of course) have spent their weeks hurling non-stop vitriol at Vitale.
“Fake friend…. f-ck you bitch is toxic,” one such psycho wrote today.
“I’m about to beat this bitch up,” reads another comment on Vitale’s Instagram page.
“Ima brake ur legs if i see you,” a third Demi obsessive commented.
Guys, we don’t know Demi personally, so we hate to speak on her behalf, but we’re pretty sure she’d agree that there are better ways to spend your time and express your concerns than issuing physical threats to her best friend.

Well, let no one say that Khloe Kardashian isn’t big enough to admit when she’s made a mistake.
Of course, her latest blunder is the sort of mistake that Khloe really shouldn’t be making in 2018 …
Over the weekend, Khloe posted an Instagram story and quickly caught a lot of flak for using some offensive language.
The short video clip shows Khloe helping her sister Kourtney configure her smartphone before her workout.
“Yes, you can, you f-cking r-tard,” Kourtney was heard saying off-camera.
“Are you f-cking r-tarded?” Khloe replied.
Yes, Kourtney and Khloe both casually tossed out slurs, but since the clip was posted to Khloe’s Insgaram, the majority of the criticism was directed at her.
Khloe quickly deleted the story, but not before many fans took note of the offensive faux pas.
One fan went straight to Twitter to call Khloe out directly.
“I was watching your livestream on Instagram until you said the “r” word,” the follower wrote.
“You should pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following&don’t know who you could be offending.”
The fan concluded the tweet with a poignant reminder that as a new mom, Khloe should demonsgtrate greater sensitivity.
“If True had a disability you would use a different word,” she tweeted.
Thankfully, Khloe was quick to respond and fully agreed with the fan’s assessmemt.
“Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that?” she wrote.
“You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! much love today.”
Yes, Khloe messed up pretty bad, but her apology is basically a master class in how to express remorse without making excuses.
She simply admitted that she was wrong and promised to try and do better in the future.
Of course, we probably shouldn’t be surprised that she’s so skilled in this regard.
Khloe has been hearing so many apologies lately that we suppose it makes sense she’s gotten so good at delivering them herself.
