Dixie and Charli D’Amelio Respond To The Backlash Over Their “D’Amelio Family Dinner” Video

On November 16th, the D’Amelio family premiered their ‘mystery dinner guest’ video on YouTube — the first of many, in their upcoming series. 

Their mystery guest ended up being beauty influencer/icon, James Charles. Soon after Charles sat down, Chef Aaron May (the D’Amelio Family chef) began bringing out an array of delicious assortments, such as: a mushroom, plant-based paella, a shrimp and chicken paella, and toasted garlic bread with mushroom, oil, sea salt and fresh tomato.

Charles discussed moving his family out to California, getting along with the Kardashian family, and feeling grateful to have been chosen as the November cover of Vogue: Portugal

Later, Charles admitted that if he weren’t a social media influencer, he would have become a lawyer. That’s when Marc suggested that the two open a law firm together, and name it, “Charles-D’Amelio Law Firm”. 

Everyone loved the name, but Dixie joked that the reason the name sounds good is because it sounds similar to “Charli D’Amelio”.

After joking around for a bit, Dixie picked a black object up from her paella and inspected it. She confirmed with Chef Aaron that it was, indeed, a snail, and Aaron admitted that eating snails are a sign of ‘good fortune’.

So, naturally, Dixie consumed the snail. However, within seconds, she had to leave the table to regurgitate the food. Heidi D’Amelio called the action ‘dramatic’, and Charles was disgusted at the sight of Dixie’s vomit (mostly because he was eating as well. So, seeing anyone vomit during a meal will naturally take away one’s appetite for food).

Meanwhile, Charli was enjoying her food and inquired whether or not Chef Aaron had whipped up some ‘dino nuggets’. 

Marc, Heidi, Charli and James continued their conversation, while Dixie cleaned herself up. Within no time, Dixie was back at the dinner table, consuming her paella (snail-free, this time).

James fit in with the D’Amelio family so organically. He playfully roasted Charli and Dixie, had a legal conversation with Marc, and spoke to Heidi so sweetly, as if she were his second mother. 

Unfortunately, things took a turn when Charli admitted that (during the time of filming) it hasn’t even been a full year since she’s reached one million followers. For those of you who aren’t on TikTok, Charli D’Amelio is the fastest growing TikToker on the app — with 98 million followers in less than a year. 

She then stated that, “I wish I had, like, more time… ‘cause imagine if I hit 100 mil, a year after I hit a mil”.

James Charles clapped back almost immediately.

“Were the 95 not enough for you?”, to which Charli clarified herself.

“Well, I was just.. saying… even numbers”.

It didn’t take long before both of the D’Amelio sisters began to receive public backlash. 

People were sending hate comments and death threats (we won’t be including specific comments, due to the safety and mental well being of the D’Amelio sisters) to Charli and Dixie.

Charli was at 99.5 million followers on TikTok, but following the backlash, people began to unfollow the social media star, — leaving her at 98.2 million followers (she now has 98.4 million).

As for Dixie, TikTok/Instagram users flooded her comment section with accusations that she ‘disrespected’ Chef Aaron, by regurgitating the snail and acting ‘childish’.

In response to the backlash, Dixie posted the following video to TikTok, yesterday:

@dixiedamelio

-video…anyways, not posting this for any other reason than to share the truth of something that was ridiculously blown out of proportion…

♬ original sound – Dixie D’Amelio

She had also apologized to Chef Aaron in the comment section of a TikTokRoom post — though she stated that the chef (as well as her team) convinced her to eat the snail, knowing that Dixie would have the reaction that she had in the YouTube video. She ended the video by asking people not to judge an “out of context, 15-second video”.

As for Charli, she went on an Instagram live to apologize. She was shaking, crying, and having an emotional breakdown, as she asked the public not to send death threats to her, for a ‘misunderstanding’ from the video. 

She also stated that she wasn’t sure if she wanted to continue posting on social media anymore, if this is how people are going to treat her. 

(TW: Death threats and suicide)

Truthfully, nobody deserves death threats. The D’Amelio sisters didn’t directly attack or hurt anyone, and they don’t deserve an influx of hate. 

James Charles tweeted out the following, after the D’Amelio sisters began receiving an outpour of negative backlash:

Chef Aaron also spoke to The Hollywood Fix about the situation, and admitted that the snail bit was set up to get a dramatic reaction out of Dixie, and that he has no ill will towards the D’Amelio sisters, whatsoever. 

The Bachelorette Continues, As The Contestants Get Progressively Honest

Courtesy: ABC

Tayshia admitted that Brendan has set the bar very high for the other men during the last one on one date (See previous article for a recap of last week’s episode).

However, last night started a new week with the men, and Tayshia was looking forward to her upcoming group date. 

The group date consisted of: Montel, Ivan, Demar, Ben, Chasen, Ed, Joe, and Bennett and their goal during this date was to prove that they were ‘grown a** men’. There were several rounds throughout this challenge: an intellectual round, a physical strength round, and a ‘breakfast in bed’ round. 

Most of them did well. However, although Bennett had attended Harvard University, he lacked in the Mathematics and English department. As for the physical strength round, all participated except for Bennett. The reason he was unable to participate was due to a former athletic injury. 

Ben Smith excelled during the physical round. The ‘breakfast in bed’ round was quite interesting. There were mimosas, eggs & bacon, and would it really be an ABC reality-dating show, without a shirtless man?

The ‘man child’ award was presented to Ed, who took the fake baby like a champ. He accepted it with pride, which Tayshia appreciated. 

After the other contestants were able to breathe, it was time for the ‘grown man’ award. There were some men that were confident in themselves, but things took a sharp turn when Bennett was presented with the award.

According to Tayshia, Bennett bounced back with that romantic gesture. Unfortunately, not everyone was too supportive of Bennett’s win. Chasen admitted that he was annoyed at how ‘classless’ Bennett was acting. Yikes. (Just wait. It gets even more heated.)

Later on, not only did Chasen and Bennett discuss their indifferences, but Ed chimed in as well. He admitted that Chasen had fraud-like qualities, and that everything that he said to Tayshia was ‘recycled’ content that he previously uttered to Clare. 

Ed felt so strongly about Chasen’s motive, that he brought up the topic to Tayshia. He also warned Tayshia that Chasen may have utilized his appearance on “The Bachelorette” for internet fame. 

Tayshia brought this up to Chasen, and Chasen didn’t accept this well. He confronted Ed immediately after his conversation with Tayshia, and it almost seemed like a fight was ready to break out. However, in that moment, Tayshia walked in and the men sat back down.

The group date rose was given to Ivan, and although he was happy, Ben was disappointed that he didn’t receive the rose (even after he poured his heart out to Tayshia).

During the cocktail party, Tayshia pulled Chasen aside to discuss the [almost] physical altercation between him and Ed. Following that conversation, Chasen pulled Ed aside to try and clear the air, but Ed continued to circle the conversation. Zac C. had to interrupt their conversation to break it up.

At the rose ceremony, everyone got a rose… except for Montel, Jay and Peter. 

The following day was a new day, and a new group date. The date took place in a boxing arena, and consisted of: Eazy, Brendan, Joe, Jordan, Spencer, Ben, Ed, and Chasen.

Wells Adams co-hosted the wrestling match with Chris Harrison.

Adams appeared on Season 12 of “The Bachelorette” and was also a contestant on Season 3 of “Bachelor In Paradise”, before being eliminated in Week 6. Adams later found love with actress, Sarah Hyland, and the two are now engaged

There were five total rounds:

  1. Eazy vs. Joe (Eazy won)
  2. Brendan vs. Jordan (Jordan won)
  3. Spencer vs. Ben (Draw)
  4. Ed vs. Chasen (Ed forfeited)
  5. Noah vs. Chasen (Chasen won)

After Ed forfeited, Noah hopped the fence to replace Ed. After a close and (almost dangerous) fight, Chasen won the event and got to spend some quality time with Tayshia. 

Although Noah lost, he did get invited to the after party with Tayshia and the rest of the men on the group date. The other men weren’t too happy with that decision, but they talked amongst themselves about it, rather than bringing it up to Tayshia.

During the after party, although some of the men kissed Tayshia, she made the first move when it came to Brandon. It was very apparent that she’s very smitten, when spending one-on-one time with him.  

Noah got the group date rose, after he *gasp* shaved his iconic mustache for true love.

Naturally, all of the men on the group date were annoyed, and Ed announced that he was going to confront Noah in front of the whole house.

Stay tuned next week, because things are about to get even messier. Whew.

Candace Owens Responds To Harry Styles Backlash In A Lengthy Instagram Video

Courtesy: Instagram

On November 13th, Harry Styles took to Instagram, to announce that he will be on December’s cover of Vogue. The photo is of Harry blowing a balloon, and looking absolutely amazing in a white and black dress. 

Styles has worn dresses and pantsuits in the past, and he’s known for defying the gender normative. 

At the 2019 Met Gala, Styles blew fans away, when he showed up in a beautiful sheer blouse, black nail polish, and a white pearl earring.

Well, soon after Vogue announced that Styles would be their December cover photo, fans went crazy.

Unfortunately, not everyone had such a positive reaction. In fact, author and conservative commentator, Candace Owens, tweeted out the following, in response to Styles’ Vogue cover:

After receiving hundreds of hate comments, Owens decided to clarify her opinion, via Instagram. In an 8-minute video posted on her profile, Owens discusses her “bring back manly men” tweet.

She began by stating that her tweet wasn’t meant to be directed at Harry Styles, but more so towards Vogue, and “the culture in general, that are trying to shove this down our throats”. 

Owens then goes on to state her opinion about men in dresses, and how she doesn’t agree with the concept. According to Owens, outside of Hollywood, any man seen in a dress is assumed to have “mental issues”.

She then went on to say that she wouldn’t want her children around men in dresses, but that she has ‘nothing against Harry Styles’, and that she likes his music and thinks that he ‘seems like a nice enough kid’.

The video didn’t end at Harry Styles, though. Owens went on to take shots at Cardi B, for promoting the “WAP” to ‘young, teenage girls’ on TikTok, and she also called out Miley Cyrus for “promoting abortion”. 

(In June of 2019, Cyrus posted an Instagram photo of her licking a cake. The writing on the cake read, “Abortion is healthcare”).

Owens ended her Instagram video by comparing Hollywood to Satanic rituals, because “nothing good has come out of Hollywood”, and that [to paraphrase her quote] Hollywood destroys the lives and mental well being of celebrities everywhere. She leaves the public with one last thought to ponder: “Examine the personal lives of celebrities. Tell me if that’s a life that you aspire to have. I actually have a question. Do you think that person is happy?”.

Actress/activist, Olivia Wilde, got called out towards the end of Owens’ video — when all Wilde did was respond to Owens’ initial tweet:

When speaking ill of any celebrity — especially a progressive celebrity (whose goal is to initiate a positive safe space), you should know that an entire fandom will be there to stand up for them.

The Harry Styles/One Direction fandom responded to Owens’ “clarification” video with some opinions of their own:

Celebrities also stuck up for the ideology of men breaking the stereotypical normative:

Although Styles has yet to comment on Owens’ tweet/video, it’s apparent that no one will alter his mindset. He’s going to keep living his life to the fullest, whilst doing the things that make him the happiest (as he should).

The 2020 People’s Choice Awards: List of Winners, Presenters, and Performers

Last night was the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards, and it was quite an experience. Hosted by Demi Lovato, the show was full of excitement, laughs and surprises.

Although there may not have been a physical audience in attendance, that didn’t stop the awards show from inviting fans, virtually. Throughout the duration of the awards show, the camera cut to the sidelines — where we saw a virtual panel of fans, laughing, cheering, and dancing.

Justin Bieber hit the stage to perform his latest singles, “Lonely” and “Holy”. Even through a television screen, we can see how special these lyrics are to Bieber, and we’re glad to see him getting back into what he loves most — performing for all to see. An absolute breathtaking and emotional performance.

Meanwhile Chloe x Halle lit up the stage (literally) to perform “Ungodly Hour”. First off, their outfits were such an incredible choice. They brought the star power, control, and vibrato to their angelic performance.

The 2020 E! People’s Choice Award presenters included: Bebe Rhexa, Tiffany Haddish, Jameela Jamil, Armie Hammer, Tyler, the Creator, Machine Gun Kelly, Alison Brie, Sofia Carson, Christina Hendricks, Kathryn Hahn, and Addison Rae.

As for the winners, well, I hope you’re ready for some popcorn, because there were quite a handful of talented winners last night — including BTS and Ariana Grande (as they should).

First off, Demi Lovato opened the show with quite a hilarious monologue. She discussed reaching the end of Instagram four times, binge watching “Pretty Little Liars”, and of course, her engagement-turned-unengagement, with former flame, Max Ehrich.

She then gave a shoutout to some fans from around the world — one of them including a certain New York talk show host, by the name of Jimmy Fallon. The two had a hilarious little discussion, before Lovato ended her speech, by thanking the frontline heroes.

All About Billie Eilish: “Therefore I Am” Fan Theories, And Her Surprise TikTok Debut

Courtesy: Instagram

So, by now, I’m sure we’re all familiar with Billie Eilish. If you’re not, then what’re you waiting for?

This pop sensation has had 14 Billboard chart topping hits, including her seven time platinum single, “Bad Guy”. 

Recently, Eilish took to social media, to promote her latest release: “Therefore I Am”. Three days ago, an interview with Genius was released, in which Eilish explains the meaning of her song. 

In general, Eilish’s music has this deep undertone full of emotions. Fans may listen to “Ocean Eyes” and start crying, while others listen to “I Love You” and start overanalyzing their own relationships. 

Well, this time, Eilish wanted to leave one of her songs open for interpretation. According to Eilish, this was the most authentic song that she’s ever released, because it allows fans to get an insight into who she is. Although we love the mysterious side of Eilish, she’s still only 18. Minus having riches and fame, she’s just like any other 18-year-old. She likes to joke around, have fun, and just live life to the fullest. 

“I feel that I sound very, like, I’m just fucking around. I’m just joking and shit. You know that, ‘Stop, what the hell are you talking about?’ It’s like, come on. It’s so real and natural and don’t take me seriously, you know? I love it.”

Eilish has always been open with her fans, but this is a new side that we’re seeing of her, and the fans are here for it. 

The music video was also incredibly unique and powerful. The entirety of the video took place in a mall, and Eilish was going around to different food stands, grabbing whatever she can find (donuts, Chipotle chips, lemonade, fries, etc). While the concept was most likely meant to be fun and playful, it’s great that Eilish left the song open for interpretation, because fans have theories. 

One fan noted the date that the music video was released on. “Therefore I Am” premiered on November 12th. Meanwhile, on November 13th, fans of Eilish celebrated the one year anniversary of her album, “everything I wanted”.

The fan’s theory was that this song was purposely meant to drop before the one year anniversary. This way, the title of her new single could tie into the title of her previous album, making it “Therefore I am everything I wanted”.

Eilish is known for her baggy clothes. During an interview with Dazed earlier this year, Eilish admitted that the reason why she started wearing baggy clothes, “was ’cos I hated my body”.

However, last month, a paparazzi photographed Eilish walking around in a tank top and shorts, and unfortunately, there was a lot of negative commentary, regarding the singer’s physical appearance. 

Instead of putting herself down and succumbing to the internet trolls, Eilish reposted an uplifting TikTok onto her Instagram story, in which a girl discusses ‘normalizing real bodies’.

@chiziduru

Instagram has warped a lot of y’all into thinking normal bodies are abnormal #bodypositivity #realbody #selflove #FallAesthetic #instagram

♬ original sound – Chizi Duru

The fan also theorized that the concept of food in the mall could represent a clapback towards all of the body-shamers (quite an interesting theory). 

Actually, speaking of TikTok, Eilish has created quite the platform onto the short form app. Eilish showed up onto many people’s “for you pages”, after posting her first TikTok on Thursday. She used the ‘time warp scan’ effect, and inflated her nose. By the eruption of laughter, it’s safe to say that she enjoys TikTok.

The TikTok already has 79 million views, and the comment section is quite hilarious. Half of the comments are from verified creators — who gushed over the fact that Eilish is now on the app. The other half of the comment section are by fans who noticed Eilish’s username. We regret to inform you that it’s not “wherearetheavocados”, but rather, “coochiedestroyer5”.

Then, just last night, Eilish uploaded a second TikTok. This video showed off her unique talent of being able to fit an entire ukulele head inside of her mouth. 

Absolutely hilarious! Maybe 2020 is turning out to be a better year than we thought.

An Interview With The Next ‘Artist To Watch’: Jessie Chambers

Courtesy: @jessiechambers on Instagram

The greatest thing about independent artists is that they all possess unique songwriting traits. Some write about love, and some write about loss, but what really differentiates musicians from one another, is the ability to tailor their songwriting to personal life experiences.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to catch up with the newest ‘artist on the rise’ — Jessie Chambers.

Chambers has written songs about love, life, and struggles. She pours her heart and soul into each of her released (and unreleased) singles, and she’s only just getting started.

  1. For those who are just discovering your music, describe a bit about who you are and what genre you aim to create.

“Hi! My name is Jessie Chambers and I am a Pop artist/singer/songwriter. Music has been a part of my life since the day I was born – literally. My mom had music playing in the delivery room – and I think that’s something that comes through in my music and how I go about creating it. While I grew up listening to all kinds of genres (and still do), I fell in love with Pop music as any true early 2000s kid would, and never looked back… But the beauty of Pop music is that it never is only one thing or one sound. Pop music is a genre, influenced by others and it’s always changing.”

2. What inspires you to write songs, and how do you bypass writer’s block when it occurs?

“I am definitely inspired by personal experiences. Whether that be relationships, both romantic and not, struggles with anxiety or self-doubt, nights out with friends or driving around with the windows down, etc. – moments like these [and more] inspire me to write. I’m also very inspired by music itself. Like sometimes, it’s not just an experience I want to write about, but instead I’ll be listening to a new song, or an old song, and just be completely determined to create something that makes me feel the way that song did. That’s also usually how I get over writer’s block, if it hits. Instead of trying to force something out, I just take the break, listen to a bunch of music, and let the inspo form on its own.”

3. “Fighting In Your Car” is your most recent release. What went into the creative process of that song?

Courtesy: Instagram

” “Fighting in Your Car” is the perfect example of a song I wrote, based on a real life experience. My boyfriend and I were driving home from a party, and we ended up arguing about something stupid. Everything ended up being fine, but in that moment, it just felt like the worst possible way to end the night — especially when we were looking forward to the drive together. Riding alone with someone at night can be so intimate and sexy, yet there we were, fighting instead. Mid-fight, I just wrote down ‘fighting in your car’ in my notes and brought it into a writing session about a week later.”

4. Which artists do you see yourself collaborating with in the future, and why? 

“There are so many artists I would love to collaborate with. I mean, it’s no secret I’m a huge Beyoncé fan, so that’s definitely a dream collaboration. I probably have too many to list, but let’s go with Sam Smith for right now. I’m really vibing with their new album, and I think we could make something together that’s emotional and warm, but somehow still makes you wanna dance.”

5. Are you working on any up and coming projects that you can tell us about?

“I actually am working on an upcoming project.. All that I’ll say right now is that I’ve got a bunch of new music coming out in 2021, and to be on the lookout right at the top of the year!”

6. What was your favorite single that you’ve released thus far, and what is the background behind that song?

Out of the songs I currently have out, I would have to say “Guess U Suck” is my favorite at the moment. This song basically wrote itself. I showed my co-writer a melody idea I had, which became the chorus, and from there it took about 30 minutes to finish the whole song top to bottom. We had so much fun writing it, because the concept is so sassy and the story is so easy to tell. I think we all can relate to having a moment where you’re like “wait, f this. It’s not me, it’s you. You just suck.”

7. Where can fans follow you to keep up with your latest music?

“For my music directly you can find me on all streaming platforms – i.e. Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc. And for social media, you can follow me on Instagram @jessiechambers or TikTok @chambersjessiechambers. I’m really trying to connect with my listeners, so make sure to reach out! I love meeting you guys <3″.

Tayshia Experiences Her First Week As The Bachelorette and Clare Crawley ‘Tells All’

Well, last week’s episode of “The Bachelorette” was filled with lots of tears, frustration, and heartfelt goodbyes.

Clare Crawley finally got engaged to the love of her life — Dale Moss. Meanwhile, she bid farewell to the other 16 men, who unfortunately, never stood a chance against Moss. 

However, last night’s episode was a chance of revival for the remaining contestants. The 16 men that initially fought for Clare’s heart, had decided to pursue another chance at love with Tayshia Adams.

Adams first appeared on Colton Underwood’s season of “The Bachelor”, before being eliminated and reappearing on “Bachelor In Paradise”, in July of 2019. While there, Adams fell in love with BIP contestant, John Paul Jones. They dated for several months, before permanently splitting in October of 2019. 

Now, Adams is once again going on this journey to find love, and according to the Bachelorette herself, she believes that her husband was somewhere in the room. 

Before meeting the contestants, Adams had an honest, heartfelt chat with Chris Harrison. Adams admitted that although she was excited, she was a bit nervous as to whether or not the contestants would take an interest upon her [following Crawley’s departure].

Luckily, however, all eyes were on Adams, as she introduced herself to the men for the first time. She even canceled the first rose ceremony, in order to get to know her potential love interests better. This comes after Adams had given the first impression rose to Spencer Robertson. Robertson was one of 4 men that had arrived in a limo, on Adams’ first night. He was a part of the “new batch”, so-to-speak. 

While speaking privately to him, Adams told Robertson that she had felt instantaneous sparks between the two — similar to Crawley, on the night that she first encountered Moss. 

Speaking of Crawley and Moss, Adams’ segment was briefly interrupted, with a ‘tell all’ session, between the newly engaged couple and Chris Harrison, himself. 

Harrison didn’t hold back, when questioning the love birds. Many “Bachelor Nation” fans were eager to know whether or not Moss and Crawley engaged in contact, prior to the start of filming. The two immediately denied any sort of prior communication, and Crawley even swore on her father’s grave. 

We then got to experience first hand, how happy the two are. Crawley admitted that during times where she’s most anxious, Moss immediately comes over to hold her hand and comfort her. Just through body language alone, we can tell that they make each other extremely happy. 

Following the brief interrogation, Harrison redirected the episode back to Adams and her journey to find love. 

The new day started off with a group date, and a competitive game of ’Splashball’. The men were separated into two teams: the blue team and the green team. Harrison and Adams were judging on the sidelines, and the rules were simple: the first team to get the most shots before the timer runs out, wins. 

Well, things went South very quickly. Riley had the ball in his hands, and when Robinson went to grab the ball, his face collided into Riley’s elbow. His mouth began to bleed, and the paramedics had to clean him up. 

Once Robinson showed that he was feeling alright, the game resumed, and the blue team (which Robinson was on) won the game. The green team (which Riley was on) was forced to go home, while the blue team got to stay and spend more time with Adams. 

Later on, some words of honesty and frustration were exchanged between the contestants and Robinson. Robinson was told by a few of the men that he was acting (to keep it PG-13 rated) ‘arrogant’. 

In other news, Jason admitted that he wasn’t giving his 100% to Tayshia, and that he still had lingering feelings for Clare. Although Tayshia tried to convince Jason to give love another chance, Jason ended up eliminating himself. 

The next day, Adams got to spend time getting to know Brendan. Earlier in the episode, Brendan’s time with Adams was cut short, after Harrison pulled her aside to talk.

Their date was incredibly sweet and unique — full of horseback riding, coconut drinks, and pool side PDA. To close out the date, the two met for a candlelit dinner, where all was revealed. 

Brendan opened up about his previous divorce with his ex-wife, and in return, Adams presented Brendan with a rose. 

Their date ended with sparks flying — literally. There was a beautiful fireworks show that took place, and naturally, it made for a great moment of intimacy between the two. Tayshia even admitted that she could see herself getting married to Brendan. 

Stay tuned for next week’s episode, because things are about to pick up. Fights are predicted to break out in the boxing ring, hostility and tensions will rise between Noah and the other contestants, and everyone appears to be growing impatient. 

Former Bachelor, Colton Underwood, Ordered To ‘Stay Away’ From Ex-Girlfriend, Cassie Randolph

If you have a history of watching “The Bachelor”, then you might recognize Colton Underwood. He was searching for love on Season 23 of “The Bachelor”. The reality show is known for eliminating contestants, until the final episode reveals ‘the final two’. However, Underwood never made it that far.

Although there were still two contestants left, he chased after Cassie Randolph — a contestant who had decided to eliminate herself from the show. Underwood jumped a fence to chase after her, and the two were a power couple for approximately two years. 

Earlier this year, when Underwood announced his COVID-19 diagnosis, Randolph and her family were there to care for the former bachelor. According to Underwood, he was under quarantine in the Randolph family household, and Cassie would bring food, medicine, etc. to aid in Underwood’s recovery.

On May 29th, however, both Randolph and Underwood took to social media, to post about their breakup. While they didn’t go into specific details as to why they had broken up, their social media posts appeared amicable towards one another. 

Randolph stated that she and Underwood would continue to remain in each other’s lives, and Underwood confirmed that by calling her his ‘friend’.

Unfortunately, the breakup may not have been as amicable as we had thought. On September 14th, TMZ broke the news that Randolph had been granted a restraining order against Underwood. 

“A judge signed off on Cassie’s request for a temporary restraining order against Colton, requiring him to keep at least 100 yards from her, her home, her work and avoid any contact or threatening behavior.”, TMZ reports

According to the California Courts website, although proof is not required to file a Civil Harassment Restraining Order, “it helps to have more proof of harassment than just your word”. The website also provides examples of proof to present in court, such as: witnesses, medical or police reports, damaged property, photos, written statements made from witnesses under oath, and threatening letters, e-mails or telephone messages. 

Per TMZ, Randolph has included photos of what is believed to be a small, black, disk-like tracking device. She has admitted to receiving threatening text messages, along with reportedly being tracked by Underwood.

The public has had some mixed reactions: some fans have taken Randolph’s side, others have sided with Underwood, and the rest have decided to wait until both parties appear in court.

As for Underwood himself, he has not yet addressed any of these allegations. 

Twitter Has Created A Death Hoax, Involving 55 Year Old Author, J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling is best known for writing the 8-part Harry Potter series. Her first Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, came out in 1997, and she only grew from there. Four years later, the first [of many] Harry Potter films were shown in movie theaters across the nation — jump-starting her career in the writing industry.

On June 6th, however, Rowling found herself facing backlash, after posting [what can be considered as] a transphobic tweet. 

“‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”

The statement was her response to an article by Devex, titled: “Opinion: Creating a more equal post-COVID-19 world for people who menstruate”.

The general basis of the article revolves around menstruation, and how the current pandemic is financially affecting those who menstruate. 

One specific quote (the one in which Rowling responded to) stated that, “2020 started out as a year of progress, with a groundswell of interest and potential for improved investment to address the menstrual health and hygiene needs of girls, women, and all people who menstruate.”

Immediately after tweeting out her response, the LGBTQ+ community (as well as those who support the community) were outraged. Rowling was ‘canceled’ and branded as ‘transphobic’ towards the transgender community. 

On September 14th, the LGBTQ+ media outlet, Pink News, revealed the premise of Rowling’s latest novel, and the majority response was filled with backlash.

According to an article by Pink News, “A new book penned by JK Rowling finds her private detective protagonist, Cormoran Strike, investigating a cis male serial killer who dresses as a woman to kill his cis female victims, according to an early write-up.”

Shortly after the synopsis of Rowling’s new novel was published, the hashtag “#RIPJKROWLING” began trending on Twitter. The hashtag appears to refer to the alleged ‘fall of Rowling’s career’, rather than wishing death upon the author. 

People are also using the hashtag to credit other celebrities as the author of the Harry Potter series:

While many are infuriated, others are praising Rowling for ‘speaking out’ — causing a heated debate between social media users. 

Rowling has yet to respond to the criticism, regarding her newest crime novel. 

Why Trisha Paytas Is NOT Happy With Gabbie Hanna

On September 11th, Trisha Paytas uploaded a YouTube video, titled “GABBIE HANNA LEAVE ME ALONE UR F***ING CREEPY AS HELL”. As you can probably guess, the video was directed towards YouTuber/musician, Gabbie Hanna (formerly known as The Gabbie Show). Paytas began the video by claiming that Hanna “needs psychological help”. She then mentioned Hanna’s interview with DramaAlert host, Keemstar.

During the DramaAlert interview on September 11th, Hanna spoke about her past drama with Paytas. In 2019, when Paytas was still dating Vlog Squad member/comedian, Jason Nash, Hanna had informed Nash about a Herpes rumor, involving Paytas. According to Hanna, she was clear about the fact that it was a rumor, and allegedly meant no ill will towards Paytas. She also admitted that while Paytas had tried to contact her within the past few weeks, Hanna respectfully declined those conversations, in favor of her mental health.

Paytas wasn’t too happy, after listening to the interview. According to her, Hanna is the one who continues to start drama, and she denied ever contacting Hanna within recent weeks. She was also very confused as to why Hanna is writing a ‘diss’ track about her, and claimed that she ‘barely’ knows Hanna. Multiple times throughout her video, Paytas referred to Hanna as “an actual psychopath”.

Well, on September 12th, Gabbie responded to Paytas’ video with a YouTube video, titled, “I Wrote a Song for Trisha Paytas”. In the video, Hanna stated that she no longer wants to involve herself in any drama with Paytas. However, she did want to clear up any assumptions.

While Hanna’s upcoming single, “Call Me Crazy”, is about Paytas, she reportedly had no intention of creating it as a ‘diss’ track. Rather, she showed a series of Instagram messages between the two, in which Paytas appeared ecstatic about collaborating with Hanna. 

Hanna continued the video by admitting that she wanted to portray Paytas as accurately as possible, without mentioning undisclosed information. 

“Every line in this song — as specific as it is to Trisha — is something that she’s talked about publicly in her vlog, or her ex’s vlog, or her ex’s friend’s vlog”.

Per Hanna’s video, she believes that Paytas is very misunderstood. 

“What I see in all of that lashing out is a lot of misdirected pain and anger, as a result of feeling misunderstood for so long”.

After watching both videos, fans are having mixed reactions. Some fans are siding with Hanna:

While others are siding with Paytas:

Hanna has since responded to a multitude of negative YouTube comments, with the following statement:
