Wow!!!

In case you forgot, the feud grew this week when Lagerfeld accused Streep of "cheapness" in a report that she eventually chose a gown from another designer so that she could be paid to wear it.

Now, after a few days of simmering feud feelings after Lagerfeld's "cheapness" comment made Streep look, well, not great, both parties have released new statements updating their positions in the affair.

To Lagerfeld's credit, he apologized a bit in his statement, acknowledging he may have misunderstood Streep's motivations, saying in full:

White House Blocks CNN & Other News Organizations From Press Briefing — WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!

We wish this was #FAKENEWS… but it isn't.

On Friday, CNN, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed among other news outlets, were blocked from attending an off-camera press briefing at the White House. Press secretary (and Melissa McCarthy muse) Sean Spicer hosted a gaggle, which is less formal than the usual televised Q/A session we've been seeing.

This is unbelievably fucked up!! Especially since Donald Trump just spoke out at CPAC about how much he loves the FIRST AMENDMENT — which includes freedom of the damn press. Sounds like a direct infringement, Donny!

In response to backlash, administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the White House "had the pool there so everyone would be represented and get an update from us today."

This "pool" includes a representative from one television network and one print outlet — NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News were there, only to leave CNN in the dust. And to no surprise, conservative Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed in.

THIS IS HOW DICTATORSHIPS START!!!

CNN immediately (and rightfully) protested the decision saying:

After leaving the scene, the 26-year-old was then questioned by police about her involvement. However, when authorities ran her name, they discovered an outstanding arrest warrant and eventually booked her.

It's important to note that her arrest has NOTHING to do with the deceased man, as law officials believe she was simply trying to get him medical attention. As of now, police believe he died of a possible overdose.

For her situation, it is unclear what crime she committed.

Miz Chase is known for starring in Big Love, and was also the voice of Lilo in Lilo & Stitch.
