Jenelle Evans Responds to Uproar Over Hurricane Florence Tweets: You Haters Can All Suck It!

On Wednesday, Jenelle Evans tweeted about Hurricane Florence numerous times.

We can certainly see why the topic is at the forefront of her mind, as that's probably the case with just about every coastal Carolinian at the moment.

But Jenelle's tweets were different from those of the other folks offering live updates from her region.

While many expressed concerns, Jenelle posted rain-drenched bikini selfies.

While others detailed their evacuation plans, Jenelle announced her intention to stay put … along with her three young children.

Obviously, she took a lot of flak for downplaying this potentially deadly storm, but don't worry, today she offered a detailed explanation:

It seems those who criticized her were all just jealous haters who can suck it.

Jump into the gallery below for her full response, which is 100 percent, uncut classic Jenelle:

 

1. Jenell-fie

Jenelle evans hearts hurricanes
Jenelle kicked things off with this selfie. Many of her followers rightly felt that the lighthearted, exuberant tone of the pic didn’t jibe with the seriousness of the situation.

2. Get This Girl Off Twitter

Jenelle was stunned by the negative reaction to her tweet, but instead of deleting it and offering up a sincere apology, she decided to make things much worse.

3. Mad Mom

Jenelle evans fake boobs
Jenelle, as you may know, is an angry person. Like, you’d have a hard time finding an angrier person who’s not currently behind bars for a violent crime. And she likes to let the hate flow through her on Twitter.

4. Jenelle Evans: Confused, As Always

Jenelle doesn’t understand. But to be fair, the girl’s not feigning ignorance. She genuinely doesn’t understand the situation.

5. Explain It Like She’s 5

Jenelle evans weird bikini pic
When many, many people attempted to make it clear to Jenelle that using an impending natural disaster to call attention to your thirst trap bikini pics is horrendously inappropriate, she got even more upset.

6. Still Missing the Point

Still missing the point
Jenelle can’t see how people could possibly view her bikini pics as obnoxiously narcissistic. And because this is Jenelle we’re talking about, she’s been getting angrier and angrier as the day goes on …

Jenelle Evans Responds to Kiki Challenge Criticism: Quit Hatin’ on My Twerk Game!

Jenelle Evans has spent her entire adult life in the public eye, and for much of that time, she’s been the subject of near-constant scorn and derision.

You would think she’d be used to it by now, but Jenelle still takes every bit of criticism to heart.

Just last week, for example, the denizens of Twitter suggested that Jenelle might be too dumb to homeschool her kids, and the Carolina Hurricane absolutely lost it. 

Of course, in the ensuing, incoherent Twitter tirade she basically proved them right, but that’s beside the point.

You might think that after an embarrassing debacle like that, Jenelle would give up on clapping back, but still, she’s persisted.

This week saw Jenelle once again butting heads with Teen Mom 2 fans during an Instagram Q&A.

You might remember this group interview as the occasion on which Jenelle revealed that Farrah Abraham made her famous.

It also featured a portion in which Ms. Evans revealed that she’s done having kids, so really, this thing was just chock full of highlights.

At one point a fan asked about Jenelle’s “Kiki Challenge” video.

In case you haven’t set eyes upon this hot mess, you can check out below:

Yes, for reasons that defy explanation, Jenelle randomly pulled her car over, got out on the side of a busy road, and proceeded to twerk in front of her kids.

You can see why the video might still be on the mind of some fans, and one viewer basically asked Jenelle what the hell she was thinking.

“Is it a crime to have fun? Lol. I ignore the negative vibes tho,” Jenelle wrote.

“I’ve been dancing for years and it’s always for fun.”

Hmm … pretty boilerplate response, but as usual, it seems Jenelle didn’t really think this one through.

To answer her rhetorical question — no, having fun isn’t a crime, but dancing in the street totally is.

And it’s not like one of those silly outdated laws that gets on everyone’s nerves.

“No dancing in the middle of the street” is a totally solid rule that should be fully enforced by all local and state authorities.

On the plus side, we guess Jenelle’s dance moves aren’t all that bad.

As for the decision to twerk in front of her kids, well — it’s a little weird, yes, but this is Jenelle Evans we’re talking about.

That doesn’t even crack the top 100 of ways she may have messed up her kids this year.

Hell, it’s not even the worst way that she’s traumatized them while they were in her car.

Jodie Sweetin Finally Responds: Did She Sleep with John Stamos or What?!?

John Stamos sky-rocketed to fame on Full House for often saying the phrase have mercy.

But a certain question has been making its way around the Internet for the past few years, one that can be summed up as follows:

Did Stamos also have his way with co-star Jodie Sweetin in bed?

That is, have Stamos and Sweetin slept together?!?

Yes, this really has been a topic of speculation among social media users, despite the fact that Sweetin is 36 years old and Stamos is 55 years old and has spent a portion of his career portraying her uncle on screen.

And the subject was raised again on Monday after Sweetin jumped on Instagram to wish Stamos a very happy birthday.

Along with the throwback photo featured below, the actress wrote the following cute caption:

“Happy Birthday, Uncle J! My, my… we’ve made quite the memories these last 30+ years!

“I can’t believe you’re about 10 years younger than I am currently in this photo!! We were babies! (Well, I actually was… haha).

“Love you so much.”

swetin flashback

Pretty sweet, right?

Not to one commentator, who responded to the birthday wishes as follows:

“How can you still say uncle to him when it’s been reported that you slept with him?! That’s just nasty.”

Sweetin seemed taken aback by the inquiry and the remark, replying as best she could in the moment:

“Hahahah…um…what?! Yeah…that’s def not true.”

Not only are Sweetin and Stamos 19 years apart in age (which is nothing, if you were to ask Dane Cook), but they’ve known each other for decades.

They played Stephanie Tanner and Uncle Jesse, respectively, on Full House from 1987 to 1995; and then reprised their roles in Netflix’s revival/reboot Fuller House.

So, Stamos has known Sweetin since she was five years old, making the mere suggestion that he did anything with her sexually to be gross, disgusting and totally abhorrent.

Seriously, Internet, where do you come up with this stuff?!?

Sweetin, meanwhile, is currently dating some guy named Mescal Wasilewski. They’ve been together since November.

The actress previously was married to Shaun Holguin from 2002 to 2006; and to Cody Herpin, with whom she shares nine-year-old daughter Zoie, from 2007 to 2010.

The star is also mother of daughter seven-year Beatrix with ex-husband Morty Coyle, from whom she separated in 2013 after two years of marriage.

Stamos, for his part, is mad crazy handsome.

He welcomed a son named Billy in April with his wife, model Caitlin McHugh.

Travis Scott Responds to Accusations of Transphobia

On Friday, rapper and Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy Travis Scott dropped his new album, Astroworld.

But when it came to light that a transgender model had been conspicuously deleted from the album art, Travis came under fire and people began to wonder if he might be transphobic.

Travis has now broken his silence on the controversy and apologized to trans model Amanda Lepore.

Sharing a new message on Instagram, Travis Scott took to the captions to confirm: “EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ASTROWORLD!”

He shared a thoughtful message to make his feelings on the matter completely clear.

“Thank you David LaChapelle and Amanda Lepore,” Travis writes. “And everyone that came out to make all the covers and the vision come to life!”

Travis shares that he was unwilling to remain silent on the controversy, writing: “This is very important for me to speak up about:”

“Growing up I’ve been taught to accept everyone,” Travis reveals. “Not to cast people away but bring them in your home!”

Travis Scott Responds to Astroworld Album Art Controversy

“I have nothing but respect for the LGBTQ community,” Travis says, laying to rest any fears that he harbored bigoted beliefs.

Travis continues, writing: “I want to use my voice to make it clear that everyone on this planet is as equal and f–king awesome to the next.”

That is such a good, beautiful sentiment!

“Me and LaChapelle set out to create images that I grew up watching him create for years that inspire me today,” he explains, referring to the artist and photographer who created his album art.

“Yo, Amanda, you did upstage everyone,” Travis writes to trans model Amanda Lepore, who had joked that she had been removed because she’d upstaged everyone. “Even me.”

Travis Scott album cover variant

Travis then shared the version of his album art in which Amanda Lepore was included.

“I can’t wait for everyone to see the booklet that me and Dave put together,” Travis continues. “That includes all these images.”

“Thank you for being a part of it,” Travis writes to Amanda. “Sorry for the misunderstanding.”

Writing to both LaChapelle and Amanda and everyone who worked on the album art, he says: “Love you guys and THANK YOU ALL!!!”

“EVERYONE,” Travis reiterates. “IS WELCOME TO ASTROWORLD!”

Some conspiracy theorists may speculate that it was planned that Amanda would reveal that she had been a part of the album art.

Why? Because it created a controversy, and a controversy means added attention.

Accusations of transphobia means attention from trans folks, the broader LGBTQ+ community, and advocates. They also bring diehard transphobes looking to defend a fellow bigot (which Travis, of course, is not). 

And then entertainment news reports on it. It’s a free album promotion.

Then, Travis comes forward and makes it clear that he’s not a bigot, once again reminding everyone that his album exists.

We are not saying that we believe that this was a calculated ploy. But there are some people who do.

We should of course always be on the lookout for bigotry. There are, however, genuine situations in which people make choices for artistic reasons that have nothing to do with prejudice against anyone or their identity.

For Travis Scott’s album, LaChapelle created a series of photographs, depicting some sort of carnival that turns into a lust-filled, wild place at night.

We, too, look forward to seeing more photos that have yet to be released.

We are glad that Travis Scott’s response to the controversy was so affirming. It would have been easy for him to ignore it or simply give a terse reply.

Les Moonves Responds to Sexual Harassment Charges, Admits to Making “Women Feel Uncomfortable”

Les Moones has responded to charges of sexual harassment and misconduct outlined by Ronan Farrow in an explosive New Yorker article relased on Friday.

In the damning expose, Farrow cites six women, all of whom allege that the CBS CEO made unwanted advances toward them in the form of kissing or touching.

If they refused said advances, the women were punished.

Each also said she was afraid to speak out back when the incidents happened, out of fear over how Moonves could ruin their careers.

This same piece delves deeply into CBS itself, with Farrow writing that it maintains a testosterone-fueled culture where “everything feels old, the people, the furniture, the culture, the mores.”

(Moonves has served as the chairman of CBS for about two and a half years; the network has been the most-watched network on television in 15 of the last 16 seasons.)

One of the accusers is actress Illeana Douglas, perhaps best known for her role on Six Feet Under.

She claims to have been fired from a 1997 pilot after refusing Moonves’ advances, which included “violent kissing” and holding her down on his office couch.

“The physicality of it was horrendous,” she alleges of Moonves, who was the CBS Entertainment President at the time.

Douglas says she was promptly let from the unanmed sitcom and denied payment, although she was later offered compensation and the opportunity to appear in a CBS miniseries after she retained an attorney.

In response to the scathing allegations against him, Moonves has said the following:

Throughout my time at CBS, we have promoted a culture of respect and opportunity for all employees, and have consistently found success elevating women to top executive positions across our Company.

I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances.

Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely.

But I always understood and respected – and abided by the principle – that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone’s career.

This is a time when we all are appropriately focused on how we help improve our society, and we at CBS are committed to being part of the solution.

Even before various details from the article were made public on Friday, CBS vows to investigate Moonves and this entire situation.

It said in a lengthy statement of its own:

CBS is very mindful of all workplace issues and takes each report of misconduct very seriously.

We do not believe, however, that the picture of our Company created in The New Yorker represents a larger organization that does its best to treat its tens of thousands of employees with dignity and respect.

We are seeing vigorous discourse in our country about equality, inclusion and safety in the workplace, and CBS is committed to being part of the solution to those important issues.

Moonves is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.

He earned close to $ 70 million last year and is married to CBS on-air personality Julie Chen.

The Big Brother host said the following in the wake of these accusations against her husband:

I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late ’90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years.

Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader.

He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement.

That’s all well and good and parts of it may be true.

But it’s very safe to assume at least one thing in all of this:

There’s no way Les Moonves remains CEO of CBS for very much longer.

Anthony Anderson Responds to Allegation of Assault

Anthony Anderson is under criminal investigation.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that it received a report against the Black-ish star, with The Blast writing that Anderson is accused of assaulting a woman last year after an event she catered for him.

Inside tell the aforementioned website that the unnamed victum met with Anderson a second time after the event to discuss future opportunities.

This is supposedly when the assault took place, although no other details are really known about it at this time

Sources tell The Blast that the woman reported the incident months after it allegedly happened, as she was inspired by the #MeToo movement to finally speak out.

“We have a crime report listing him as a suspect in a crime. It is an open investigation,” the LAPD has simply said in response to this story.

A spokesperson for the star, meanwhile, has issued a statement on Anderson’s behalf.

It reads as follows:

“It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false.

“The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.

Back in 2004, Anderson and assistant director Wayne Witherspoon were accused of raping an extra on the set of the 2004 film “Hustle & Flow.”

However, the charges were later dropped when the judge ruled that there was no probable cause to try the case.

This has no practical bearing on the latest charges, we’re just reporting a few facts.

Anderson was just nominated his fourth Emmy Award for his portrayal of Andre Johnson, the patriarch on the ABC sitcom Black-ish.

He is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame later this year, as well.

On the small screen, Anderson’s resume includes appearance and/or starring roles on Guys with Kids, Treme, Psych, Shameless and The Shield.

On the big screen, he has had roles in The Departed (2006), Kangaroo Jack (2003) and Transformers (2007) and Scream 4 (2011).

Anderson is married with two kids.

We’ll have more on this story if/when news breaks.
