I posted briefly about this nonsense yesterday, but the long and short of it is Bo Duke of the Dukes of Hazzard was arrested for not paying his ex-wife (to whom he was married for over 20 years, and who is the mother of their three children) her court-ordered alimony. He was sentenced to three days, of which he only actually spent five hours in jail. As soon as he was released, this asshole called Fox News to claim he was mistreated because he’s a conservative.
“[Within the] court system, I was treated like I was guilty until proven innocent, like a second-class citizen,” he said. “I do think there’s a bias against conservatives, Republicans, in Hollywood, but I think if you let that alter how you are, then I question how you are,” he said. “If you believe it, speak it, live it.”
“I supported the last president [even though] I didn’t vote for him, but I supported him because I believe that’s my duty as a United States citizen,” he said. “The difference here is that I did vote [for Trump] and I don’t mind people knowing that.”
MEANWHILE IN THIS COUNTRY, BLACK CHILDREN ARE BEING SHOT AND KILLED FOR PLAYING WITH TOY GUNS AND BLACK MEN ARE BEING KILLED FOR CARRYING A CELL PHONE OR SELLING CIGARETTES OR DOING EVERYTHING THAT THE OFFICER WHO PULLED THEM OVER ASKED THEM TO DO AND LATINO CHILDREN ARE BEING TORN FROM THEIR PARENTS AND KEPT IN WALMART PRISONS BUT ABSOLUTELY, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY BEING PERSECUTED FOR YOUR CONSERVATIVE BELIEFS BECAUSE YOU HAD TO SPEND FIVE HOURS IN JAIL — FOR A THREE-DAY SENTENCE — AFTER BREAKING THE LAW. WHO WILL THINK OF THE POOR MISTREATED RICH WHITE MAN?
And they say that liberals have a victim mentality.
So this happened:
And this happened:
The Bachelorette producers are claiming that they had no knowledge Lincoln Adim had been indicted for indecent assault and battery. BUT WHY NOT? WHO IS DOING Y’ALL’S BACKGROUND CHECKS?
So, what do you think? Is this a Westworld mistake or easter egg?
ZOMG IS THIS TATTOO THAT SOPHIE TURNER GOT A SPOILER? (Prolly not.)

Drake staged a Degrassi reunion in his new video:
It’s not TV per se, but it’s my blog, I do what I want:
First of all, HOW DARE YOU, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, RACHEL BLOOM IS A GOD DAMNED GODDESS. But second of all, how did I not talk about Neil Patrick Harris and Rachel Bloom’s Tony’s Twitter spat until now?
In an interview with GQ, Bloom said Harris’ tweet left her “kind of devastated.” She also attributed it to the nature of being a celebrity on social media.
NPH has since offered an apology:
Speaking of being a celebrity on social media: people are fucking monsters. LEAVE MILLIE BOBBY BROWN ALONE.
Roseanne Barr is now trying to claim that her Planet of the Apes tweet was really about anti-Semitism:
In an interview that was conducted weeks before Roseanne was canceled, Frankie Shaw told Sara Gilbert that SMLIF was inspired by Roseanne. Of course, this is less than surprising considering Shaw wanted to cast Barr in SMILF.
And for all you Roseanne Barr/Donald Trump fans out there (because that Venn Diagram is a perfect circle), I present the auction you’ve been waiting for.
“We can’t be afraid to stand up, to speak up, to rise up. When we see things that are happening around us that are counter to our values and our beliefs, our actions must match our words.” — Channing Dungey on canceling Roseanne.
