Ellen Celebrates The 20th Anniversary Of Her Coming Out Episode With Special Guests Oprah Winfrey & Laura Dern!

no title

It may seem like no big deal now, but when Ellen DeGeneres — and her TV character Ellen Morgan — came out 20 years ago, it was huge news.

On Friday's ep of her talk show, Ellen celebrated the anniversary of The Puppy Episode, as it was named to keep its content a secret, the first time a primetime sitcom character had ever come out of the closet.

And of course it was simultaneous with Ellen herself, a comedian with a successful show and standup career, bravely paving the way for so many others.

Donald Trump's Racist 'Immigration Crime' Hotline Flooded With Calls About Space Aliens! And Twitter Egged On The Trolling!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpTwitterPrankViral: NewsSocial Issues

no title

One of Donald Trump's most racist moves was the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office, or VOICE.

In case you missed it in the deluge of executive orders during his first couple weeks in office, this is the one that establishes a Department of Homeland Security office specifically to deal with all the crimes committed by immigrants.

Never mind the fact that we already have police and FBI to deal with crime and NHS to deal with illegal immigration. No, this office exists solely to send the message that "immigrants = scary."

And while over 80% of the executive branch jobs POTUS is supposed to nominate remain unfilled, and the government is on the verge of shutting down, this damn thing was actually established on Wednesday, complete with a hotline for tips about "crimes committed by removable criminal aliens."

Funny enough, Wednesday also happened to be Alien Day, a celebration of extraterrestrials. So many took the opportunity to call the hotline to report UFOs, greys, aliens, predators, Klingons, that hot guy from Roswell, that less-hot-but-still-pretty-hot guy from Roswell, the continuum transfunctioner, you name it.

And good riddance!

Of course, when folks on Twitter heard about the trolling, they just had to join in! See some of the best reactions (below)!

Jamie Chung Faces Criticism Over Comments About Crazy Rich Asians' 'Bullshit' Casting Of A Half-White Lead!

no title

Where do you draw the line in making a more ethnically conscious Hollywood?

That's what Jamie Chung wanted to know after hearing about the casting for the new film Crazy Rich Asians.

The Korean-American actress backed herself into a bitter corner of the racial casting conversation when she complained about somebody being chosen for the feature role who was only half-Chinese.

Speaking to CBS News, the 34-year-old spoke on how casting agents are more conscientious of "putting Asian actors in specific roles" — which, while she appreciates the effort, only confines her to a smaller box. She explained:

"You have actors who can play Australian, British, Irish, but Asian, it's very specific. It's a double-edged sword. I really, really wanted a role in "Crazy Rich Asians," but they wanted someone who's ethnically Chinese."

After the interviewer Andrea Park told Chung the male lead for the show (Henry Golding) is half-Chinese and half-white, the Once Upon A Time actress lashed out at the "bullshit" decision, saying:

no title

Like most of the Kardashian Klan, Caitlyn Jenner has always seemed a bit out of touch with society.

So, it's no surprise the Secrets of My Life author didn't see any issue with Kendall Jenner's widely-criticized Pepsi commercial.

Fox News' Jesse Watters Coincidentally Announces Vacation Following Ivanka Trump Sex Joke Controversy!

jesse watters announces vacation

We're sensing a pattern at Fox News.

As you may recall, back on April 11, Bill O'Reilly revealed he'd be going on a "pre-planned" vacation amid his sexual harassment scandal — only to be formally ousted by the network a week later. Well it appears as though the controversial TV host's protégé is following in his footsteps.

ICYMI, The Five's Jesse Watters made headlines on Tuesday after he seemingly made an oral sex joke about First Daughter Ivanka Trump. At the time, while discussing Miz Trump's recent appearance at a women's economic conference in Germany, the 38-year-old quipped:

"I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone."

So gross. However, Jesse has since tried to defuse the backlash he's received by claiming he was simply comparing Donald Trump's daughter's voice to that of a smooth jazz radio DJ. Yeah, sure.

Obviously, this lame AF excuse didn't squash the controversy as, on Wednesday, the TV personality announced:

Joe Biden Has Something Powerful To Say To Young Men On College Campuses — 'A Woman Who's Dead Drunk Cannot Consent, You Are Raping Her'

Joe Biden

With a known sexual assaulter in the White House, we need this conversation more than ever.

Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech to students at George Mason University on Wednesday — where he called on young men to take responsibility for changing the culture of sexual assault and rape on college campuses.

The event was organized by It's On Us, which is a campaign that was started by Biden and his bestie, former President Barack Obama to combat "the epidemic of sexual violence" at schools across the country during their time in office.

During the fiery speech, everyone's favorite politician said bluntly:

"I've been in a lot of locker rooms. I don't know where in locker rooms where it is acceptable to talk about, 'Man, I was out this weekend and boy, I got a piece of her, and I did this and I did that.' The guys who usually say that are usually the ugliest sons of bi— guns in the room. Here's the deal guys, you gotta speak up. You cannot let that kind of talk be bred on a college campus."

He later urged the students to speak up:
