On Being Deeply Entertained And Disturbed By Public Reactions To Rachel Dolezal

Yes, it's hilarious; NO this isn't like being trans

Yesterday was an unforgettable day in pop culture history. I’m not ashamed to say that Lebron James’ situation had a lot to do with that. But the Rachel Dolezal story dominated my heart, mind and soul. I woke up to the first story breaking on Twitter and literally fell asleep laughing at the onslaught of #AskRachel tweets. But today, looking back on all of the different reactions I saw, I have to also admit that some of my fun was ruined–ruined– by a lot of ignorant stuff I saw. First of all friends, Caitlyn Jenner and every other member of the trans community has nothing to do with this white foolishness so leave them out of it. If you don’t know the difference between gender identity and blackface or cultural appropriation (or plain ol’ insanity), you have like 8 books to read + this post. Click inside for more!

Spokane NAACP Leader Rachel Dolezal Is A White Woman Pretending To Be Black, Apparently

'Black' NAACP leader outed as white woman

There is a very strange news story making the rounds today that at first I took as a joke but has gotten stranger and stranger as more information comes to light. As I understand it, Rachel Dolezal — the president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP — has been filing complaints with local police regarding racial harassment for some time now. Dolezal‘s family caught wind of her allegations and have come forward to reveal that she is a woman of “Czech, Swedish German and a touch of Native American” heritage. As president of her chapter of the NAACP, Rachel Dolezal has “presented” herself as Black. I mean, what? Dolezal was confronted on camera with questions about her ethnicity and now, well, her odd story has become a viral sensation. Click below to see photos of Dolezal that highlight the confusion over her ethnicity, read a bit about her strange story and watch video of the interview that sparked this viral controversy. More »

NOW We’re Hearing That Homer & Marge Simpson Are NOT Breaking Up On ‘The Simpsons’

Backtracking

Yesterday news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the upcoming season of The Simpsons swept the Internets after showrunner Al Jean was quoted by Variety as saying that the couple will be getting “legally separated” after 26 years of fictional animated marriage. After the story blew up, Jean backtracked significantly on Twitter to say that he never actually said that the couple were breaking up. A promo image of Bart Simpson writing Homer and Marge Are Not Breaking Up repeatedly on his classroom chalkboard was also released so, yeah, it sounds like Jean‘s comment about the couple’s “legal separation” caused a lot of unintended trouble.

Blame Lena Dunham!

There will be a lot of changes coming in the upcoming 27th season of The Simpsons. Earlier this week, we learned that Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart Simpson on the show … tho, it will happen in the show’s annual Treehouse of Terror Hallowe’en episode, so it really doesn’t count. Today we learn the very sad news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the show. That’s right, after 26 years of fictional marriage, this animated couple will file for legal separation after Homer leaves Marge for a pharmacist that will be voiced by Lena Dunham. Um, WHAT?!

Poor Beyoncé Fans Woke Up Hella Early For Her Disappointing ‘Good Morning America’ Announcement

Also, I take issue with this announcement in general

Ya know, we never talk about how hard it is to be a superfan. It’s draining, it’s exhausting, and there’s just no way to explain to your Mom why there’s a makeshift shrine to DMX on your bedroom floor (true story, circa 1999). So I feel for the Beyhive today, especially since many of them got up at the crack of dawn or something to hear Beyoncé‘s BIG MAJORLY HUGE announcement on Good Morning America, only to be disappointed with maybe the least exciting Beyoncé news ever.

The Duggar Family Rallying Behind Josh Is Unsurprising, Even Normal

Did you watch this horrifying interview though?!

There is no way I could have sat through the FOX News interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Sometimes, it’s good to rage, and other times I just have to save myself from the insanity that is two people going on TV to speak for their grown ass son and to explain away his childish behavior that was totally resolved so it doesn’t even matter anyway. All that to say, I did not watch the interview, but I’ve seen a few clips and now support my decision to not watch the interview. On the one hand, some of these comments (and the lies, ohhh the LIES) are infuriating, and then I also thought, “This is a pretty typical response.” Click inside for more.

Nicki Minaj Would You Like You To Know She Is Ballin’ On No Budget

This photo hurts to look at

If you are a rapper, there’s a 97% chance that, at some point or another, you’ve bragged about how baller you are. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, it’s just a part of the culture at this point-you must invoke your baller-istic behavior. So Nicki Minaj is just doing her part to keep up the rapper status quo with this new photo. But, considering the fact that I just had to reevaluate my whole life/budget because I spent about $50 at the pharmacy on over-the-counter medicine for one of my babies, this photo is painful to look at. Like, wicked painful. So… enjoy?

Surprise! Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig Are Starring In A Lifetime Made-For-TV Movie Titled ‘A Deadly Adoption’ This Month

"The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong"

OK … this is really weird. A couple of months ago, The Hollywood Reporter caught wind that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig would be starring in a made-for-TV movie for Lifetime and after they reported the news, Ferrell seemingly got so pissed that the secret was spoiled that he made it appear that the movie would be scrapped and would never be released. This week, billboard advertising the June 20 release of this odd Lifetime movie titled A Deadly Adoption started popping up all over LA, letting us know that the movie is being released after all. I mean … it sounds like a mess. The movie tagline for A Deadly Adoption is The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong. LOL, OK. And the billboards have the glaring error that the movie will be released on SUNDAY June 20 when, in fact, June 20 is actually a Saturday. MESS. Click below to learn more about this Lifetime made-for-TV movie starring Will Ferrell and Kirsten Wiig and make your plans to watch … or not. More »
