no title

South Park is done tackling Donald Trump, just like they promised.

But they are going after the ignorant white nationalists he has emboldened. And Amazon Echo apparently.

In the season 21 premiere, a Charlottesville-inspired mob of white supremacists complain about being replaced, only it's not minorities they're shouting about — it's technology.

The Tiki torch-wielding marchers are upset because automation has made their jobs obsolete. So Randy Marsh convinces townspeople to get rid of their Google Homes and Amazon Echos and give the complainers the jobs that automated systems like Alexa do.

Obviously this doesn't help — after all, they're really protesting because

The White House Just Called For The Firing Of An ESPN Anchor Who Called Donald Trump A 'White Supremacist'

Jemele Hill

Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants Jemele Hill fired for saying what many Americans believe to be the truth.

ICYMI over the weekend, the ESPN anchor fired off a series of tweets calling Donald Trump a "white supremacist" who is the "most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime." Pretty accurate, TBH.

Take a look (below):

Where is the lie?

Anyway, the company later released a statement saying:

"The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the president do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."

Then, on Wednesday, the White House press secretary called for Hill's firing from the sports network, saying:

"That is one of the more outrageous comments that anybody could make and certainly is something that is a fireable offense by ESPN."

Is it really that outrageous though? When commenting on Charlottesville, the man said there were "fine people" on both sides — one of those sides had Nazi flags. Come on.

It didn't take long before the Internet rallied behind the sports journalist — ch-ch-check out the best reactions (below)!

NFL Star Michael Bennett Will File Lawsuit Against Vegas Police — See His First Interview Since Being Violently Detained

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadNFLSocial Issues

no title

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department picked the wrong black man to mistakenly detain.

Michael Bennett and his lawyer John Burris sat down with ABC News on Wednesday for the NFL star's first interview since he was detained at gunpoint by Vegas cops on August 27.

The two doubled down on claims that the Seattle Seahawks player was racially profiled when two officers reportedly ordered him to the ground and threatened to "blow [his] fucking head off" following a possible active shooter at a Vegas hotel.

Standing firm that he was targeted due to being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time, the athlete claimed cops were physically and verbally abusive towards him until they learned he was an NFL player thanks to a Google search.

While recounting the harrowing experience, Bennett broke down when thinking about the possibility of never seeing his wife or children again. He also revealed the incident forced him to have a difficult conversation with his daughter about racial profiling in America.

Despite the Vegas Dept. receiving strong backing from the police community, Burris is planning on laying down the law against the law enforcement officers, revealing a lawsuit will be filed "unless something changes drastically that we don't know of."

Watch a clip of Bennett's gut-wrenching interview (below) and stay tuned for more developments.

Hellboy IS Replacing Ed Skrein With An Asian American Actor!

no title

Looks like this is one example of whitewashing that's actually getting cleaned up!

Two weeks ago, Brit hunk Ed Skrein gracefully (and very publicly) dropped out of Hellboy after being informed the role he had taken was half Japanese in comics.

Ed's unprecedentedly selfless move had a lot of eyes on the project, so producers were forced to find a more appropriate choice.

And now it looks like they have in LOST vet Daniel Dae Kim.

According to multiple outlets, the Korean-American actor, who recently made headlines for leaving Hawaii Five-0 over not being paid as much as his costars, is in talks to replace Skrein as Major Ben Daimio.

Daniel is a strong corrective choice for the role both in being the correct race (though not nationality) AND because he's a longtime advocate for diversity in TV and film.

If talks go well, he will join Stranger Things star David Harbour and Milla Jovovich in the reboot, expected to hit theaters next year.

What do YOU think of the casting shakeup??

The Chainsmokers Are Just The Latest Famous Faces To Be Accused Of Bigotry & Racism — *Sigh*

chainsmokers accused of racism

These celebs must have their publicists working overtime!

While many stars are properly media trained, others often find themselves in sticky situations due to speaking before thinking. Sadly, there are numerous stars who've been pegged as bigots for saying culturally insensitive things. Most recently, The Chainsmokers were put on blast after member Alex Pall said he couldn't bring his dog to China and alluded to the stereotype that the Chinese eat pups.

To make matters worse, this joke occurred during an interview with an Asian reporter at the Ultra China electronic festival. Smh.

And they weren't the only ones to get called out this weekend as, during the Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood dragged Donald Trump for handling the Charlottesville tragedy poorly. Be sure to discover the other accused bigots in Hollywood for yourself (below)…
