Bella Thorne’s bf is leaping to defend what might seem indefensible, and demanding Rob Lowe back off his girl … despite her totally tone deaf comment about the deadly Montecito mudslides. Bella’s dating rapper Mod Sun, the guy she was…
Rob Lowe tried to teach Bella Thorne a valuable lesson via social media on Thursday.
And the lesson was this:
Holy Hell, you spoiled woman! Do you not realize the world doesn’t revolve around you and that there are things more important going on than the state of your relationship?!?
More or less, that is.
The unexpected feud between actor and actress centered on Thorne’s response to the ongoing mudslides in Montecito, California.
This tragic incident has claimed the lives of at least 17 people… others are missing … and countless more are without homes.
It’s a horribly sad development.
In the wake of this terrible news, Thorne Tweeted on January 10 that she was pissed because a road was closed and this ruined her plans for the evening.
“F-ck u 101 to santa barbra. I’m missing my boyfriends first date on his tour,” Tweeted Thorne, referring to the new man in her life, some musician named Mod Sun.
Check out the questionable/ridiculous/insanely insensitive message below:
The Tweet drew the ire of many Internet users who called Thorne out for what would have to be called ignorance at best – and complete self-centeredness at worst.
“I’m so sorry that you’ve been inconvenienced by the 17 people that have lost their lives. This must be tough for you,” wrote one sarcastic critic.
Added another resident:
“Santa Barbra apologizes for the inconvenience, next time we’ll plan our natural disasters according to your social schedule.”
The response that has received the most attention, however, came from the Instagram account of Lowe.
A veteran star of The West Wing, Parks and Recreation and The Grinder, Lowe was not having any of Thorne’s narcissistic bull crap.
Quoting her Tweet on his social media page, Lowe held Thorne up as an example of why celebrities are considered so out of touch.
“This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood,” wrote Rob, a Montecito resident, alongside a screenshot of Bella’s tweet.
“Bella, I’m sorry you were inconvenienced. We will try to move out our dead quicker.”
A day earlier, Lowe had updated fans on the dire situation, saying:
“Mourning the dead in our little town tonight. Praying for the survivors and preparing for whatever may come. #Montecito.”
Thorne did eventually learn the reason for the road closure that set her off, Tweeting later in the night:
“F-ck just caught up on some news, had no idea why the 101 was shut down… get home to your family safe.”
This is better than if Bella knew exactly why the road was closed and still acted all pissed off, we presume.
But the mudslides have been a prominent topic for days.
Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres even FaceTimed about the fatalities on the latter’s talk show this week.
“This is how deep the mud is,” said Oprah, sharing a video of the damage and adding:
“And the house in back is gone. What a day! Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara.”
So even if Thorne really was unaware of the issue at the center of all this, it barely absolves her.
It just shows how wrapped up she is in her own universe, as compared to what has been taking place right outside her doorstep.

A long time ago, Justin Timberlake brought sexy back.
But now many Internet users are wishing the singer and occasional actor would take a recent career decision back; not to mention a brand new, misguided Tweet.
Allow us to explain…
On Sunday night, Timberlake shared a seemingly sweet and romantic photo on Instagram.
It featured the artist and his wife, Jessica Biel, who was nominated at the Golden Globes for her role in USA Network’s The Sinner.
“Here we come!! And DAMN, my wife is hot! #TIMESUP #whywewearblack,” wrote Justin as a caption.
Both of those hashtags were a reference to the Golden Globes this year serving as a platform for celebrities to stick up for women in the industry and victims of sexual misconduct in general.
Which is why some critics thought JT should have perhaps not used this photo and this occasion to label his wife as “hot.”
Granted, Jessica Biel is very hot.
But this simply may not have been the ideal time for Timberlake to objectify his wife, that’s all we’re saying.
Moreover, as many on the World Wide Web have pointed out, Timberlake will be starring in Woody Allen’s next movie, Wonder Wheel.
The controversial director is well known for having married his ex-wife’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
The 82-year-old is also accused of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.
For this reason, a slew of stars has refused to work with Allen…and a slew of online commentators have called Timberlake out here for some pretty galling hypocrisy.
Wrote one individual:
“Wearing black, good. Talking about it, good. Next step, don’t participate in projects that profit men like Woody Allen. Have fun at the party. THEN keep striving for better.”
And another dragged Timberlake even harder for his past, Tweeting:
“You starred in Woody Allen’s new movie. You built a career on malicious misogyny towards Britney Spears. You left Janet Jackson out to dry. This is pure performative fraud.”
Timberlake has not responded to any of these scathing accusations or remarks.
We doubt he will, either.
Most folks out there think Justin is a good guy, but this is a prime example of how everyone is under an extreme microscope these days.
And, as Rose McGown thinks, you can’t just wear black and include a few hashtags and then pat yourself on the back.
If you want to see change in the world, you must take some actual action in order to enact it.

First thing this morning, the big news was that Matt Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct. Some were shocked; others were absolutely not surprised.
And then, of course, there was Donald Trump’s response — to use this to try to deflect more attention from himself and his policies onto the people he regards as his enemies. By which we mean, you know, journalists and talk show hosts.
Bewilderingly, Trump decided to bash his former friend, Joe Scarborough, by suggesting that he might be a murderer.
We really wish that we were making this up, folks.
So, Matt Lauer has been fired for assault by NBC.
Interestingly, though Lauer famously softballed Trump in an interview while grilling Hillary Clinton over “transparency issues” regarding her emails in a parallel interview (and thus helped pave the way for Twilight Zone episode that is 2017), Trump’s response has been delight.
The orange-in-chief tweeted this:
“Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.’ But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”
So, basically, he’s happy about anyone being fired from any news network that has even a modicum of journalistic integrity.
He’s throwing out his usual “Fake News” jargon, which normally just makes the world roll its eyes because, well, it’s the equivalent of a preschooler saying “I know you are but what am I” because they’re angry but don’t know how to argue.
Trump followed it up with something of a massive escalation, however.
And though he repeats himself a little, this tweet is even worse:
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
In addition to being an embarrassing display of insecurities and conduct unbecoming of the Office of the Presidency, that tweet appears to be an accusation of murder.
Because, back in 2001, when Joe Scarborough was still a congressman in Florida, an intern named Lori Klausutis was found dead in his congressional district office.
Specifically, then 28-year-old Klausutis was found behind a desk in that office by two visitors.
Now, not only was there zero evidence that Joe Scarborough was involved in her death, but the autopsy results showed that Klausutis had been feeling unwell before her death and that she also suffered heart problems.
It is believed that those heart troubles caused her to fall and hit her head, with tragic and lethal consequences.
There was zero sign of foul play.
Before anyone suggests that perhaps Joe Scarborough at least had a motive — maybe he wanted to retain his seat in congress, and she knew something incriminating?
(Or, even more boring, they’d had an affair?)
That fits narratives about politicians to which we’re accustomed … except that Scarborough had already announced his resignation months earlier, expressing a desire to spend more time with his children.
Even if you’re 100% down to commit murder, you don’t murder someone to save a political career that is already coming to an end.
And, again, there was no sign of foul play.
And Joe Scarborough is several things, but none of them is a criminal mastermind. Or any kind of mastermind.
But this is just one of many examples of Trump having zero idea of what is and is not appropriate, either for a President or for a human being, to say or do.
Trump has gleefully repeated accusations against famous men whom he considers to be his “enemies.”
He has also been conspicuously quiet about Roy Moore being accused of molesting young girls. Because, well, Roy Moore is a Republican and likely to support Trump’s agenda in Congress.
(Besides, given the accusations about Trump, condemning Roy Moore would come across as hypocritical. Though that’s never stopped Trump before)
Trump also seems to be forgetting (weird, since he himself said that he has one of “the great memories of all time”) that Fox News had to expel a number of high-profile individuals because they, like so many famous and powerful men, turned out to be sex monsters.
Sexual predation doesn’t have a political affiliation, but how people respond when the people they once respected are accused shows a lot about their character.
Another complication to all of this is that Trump was once friends with Joe Scarborough. But he cannot stand criticism of any kind, which is why their relationship has apparently devolved to accusations of murder.
