While you SURELY know all about the Trumpster's trouble landing an A-list performer for his inauguration, TONS of people are also banding together to protest the p*ssy grabbing troll! YAAAS!

According to NBC, the National Park Service has dolled out 22 permits for freedom of speech events taking place over inauguration week on land belonging to the park service. This includes the National Mall and the White House.

They also report that each protest will range from 50 to 200,000 people. WOOF!

Not too surprisingly, the potentially largest protest is the Women's March on Washington which is the event that acquired a permit for 200,000 people. Not only will thousands of protesters march the nation's capital on January 21, but Inaugural Historian Jim Bendat said:

no title

Wow.

Rob Schneider just put his foot in his mouth in a MAJOR way. On Monday, Congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis took to Twitter to honor Martin Luther King Jr., and the Waterboy alum felt the need to chime in for some reason.

The 53-year-old went on social media to try to explain MLK Jr.'s significance to the politician, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of all days.

But, considering the 76-year-old is actually the last surviving member of the "Big Six" civil rights leaders responsible for creating 1963's March on Washington, and has actually PERSONALLY worked with the iconic activist, we're not sure why he needed a history lesson from a man who couldn't keep his CBS sitcom on the air for more than two months…

However, Rob threw in his two cents anyway, saying:

Politicians also got in on the MLK love, with figures from Michelle Obama to Bernie Sanders to even Ivanka Trump remembering the words of one of our nation's greatest heroes!

Of course, some politicians pointed out the hypocrisy in other politicians honoring Dr. King while promoting hate, fear, and everything he was against (*COUGH* the President-elect *COUGH*).

Either way, we all need to feel the love today. So, ch-ch-check out the celebratory celeb tweets (below)!!!

Fresh Off The Boat Author Eddie Huang BLASTS Steve Harvey For 'Upsetting' & 'Hypocritical' Jokes About Asian Men!

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadControversySocial Issues

no title

Steve Harvey desperately needs to add some fresh jokes to his repertoire.

Last week, the Family Feud host got heat for an insulting bit on his daytime talk show, in which he skewered Asian men, laughing at the idea of anyone finding them sexually desirable.

Now, Fresh Off the Boat author Eddie Huang is blasting the comedian for jabbing Asian men dating women of another race, calling the jokes in question "upsetting."

On Friday's The Steve Harvey show, the comedian cracked jokes about absurdly specific advice books like How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men — but instead of a clever punchline, Harvey just said:

"That's one page. 'Excuse me, do you like Asian men?' ‘No.' ‘Thank you.'"

In an essay for The New York Times, Huang revealed that Harvey's shockingly tone deaf jokes have quite the terrifying history of "the expectations the dominant culture" places on Asian Americans.

The writer said that he became aware of these social constructs at a young age, explaining:

Violence is never the answer.

On Wednesday, former Miss USA Brittany Nicole Poteet was charged with assaulting her boyfriend, Wade McKenzie, in an incident that took place last month.

The blonde appeared before NSW Deputy Chief Magistrate Christopher O'Brien at Sydney, Australia's Downing Centre local court, and was slapped with a count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Wade had taken out an apprehended violence order — which provides protection for victims of domestic violence — against his former flame after she attacked him in the Neutral Bay suburb on December 16.

The 29-year-old has to enter a plea BEFORE her next court date. But what's even crazier is this isn't even the first time she's been busted for domestic violence!
