Dave Chappelle just threw more gas on the fire he started.


All Other TV News

Hey, remember how Dave Chappelle’s people said he’d be happy to sit down with the trans employees at Netflix and have a conversation with them? Yeah, he just posted a video on Instagram saying that he doesn’t know “what all this nonsense is about,” and that, “I said what I said,” and …

“To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands. And if you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”

As for coming for Hannah Gadsby:


More updates on the Rust story:

First Assistant Director David Hills, the guy who handed Alec Baldwin the gun and told him it was “cold,” was fired from a previous film after a similar gun incident.

A prop master turned down the job on Rust because he was so concerned about the production cutting corners that might lead to safety issues, including wanting to hire one person to be both prop master and armorer.

“In the movies, the prep is everything. …You also need time to clean, inspect and repair guns,” he told the newspaper. “You need time to fix old clocks. In period films, you are sometimes using antiques. But here, there was absolutely no time to prepare, and that gave me a bad feeling.”

An actor on the film noted that the cameras were protected during gunfight scenes, but not the actors or crew members.

The release of Flint, a documentary narrated by Alec Baldwin, has been postponed indefinitely.

Ghouls on the right are using the tragedy to try to score disgusting political points. J.D. Vance said Twitter should bring Former President Dementia back to make Alec Baldwin jokes; Candace Owens called the accident “poetic justice;” and Dummy Jr. is out there literally selling T-shirts. Chris Hayes gets it:

For those of you who don’t subscribe to Paramount+, but who miss Evil, they are making one (1) episode from season two available to stream for free. (It’s a fun episode — I suggest you take them up on the offer.)

Someone asked Succession fans who the villain is, and while one character pulled far ahead (Logan, duh), there is only one real answer:

Congratulations to Colin Jost who as of last weekend has become the longest-serving host of “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live.

Facebook is getting its panties in a wad about an upcoming TV adaptation of a book about them, worried it will make them look bad. LOL LOL LOL LOL

You know Jim Caviezel, the star of Person of Interest and Passion of the Christ is a complete QAnon lunatic, right? (He is, and has been for a long while.) Well, here are some stories about his dumb, dangerous, racist, homophobic, and insane behavior on the set of Person of Interest — a show that if it had been made during the #MeToo era would have been SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY based on these stories. In fact, Taraji P. Henson quit the show over this bullshit. It’s amazing and worth reading:

Love is dead again.


Ruby Rose left the starring role on Batwoman on The CW a while back, initially claiming an injury from a stunt gone wrong made it difficult to work. However, in an Instagram post last week, she opened the floodgates:

“Enough is enough,” Rose wrote in the post, tagging “Batwoman” showrunner Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of the show’s production company Berlanti Productions. “I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened to me on that set. I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”

As for former WB TV President Peter Roth: “Not sure if you left after getting promoted to the highest position because you just couldn’t stop making young women steam your pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who you fired as soon as the report didn’t fit your narrative, either way, when it comes to you, there’s already an army waiting for u.”

She then came for her co-star Dougray Scott: “Dougray hurt a female stunt double, he yelled like a little bitch at women and was a nightmare. He left when he wanted and arrived when he wanted. He abused women and in turn as a lead of a show I sent an email asking for a no yelling policy, they declined.”

She accused the showrunner of only being on set four times and said she encouraged Rose to work with Roth’s private investigator before concluding: “please to my dear, dear fans stop asking if I will return to that awful show, I wouldn’t return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head..” Rose added. “NOR DID I QUIT. I DO NOT QUIT, They ruined Kate Kane and they destroyed batwoman, not me.”


Warner Bros. TV responded with a “Nuh-uh.”

Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.

They then followed up with this statement about Scott:

We condemn the comments made by Ruby Rose about Dougray Scott. Warner Bros. has found Mr. Scott to be a consummate professional, and never received any allegation against him of bullying, or of abusive behavior on his part. Mr. Scott was greatly respected and admired by his colleagues, and was a leader on the set.

Pajiba has a long list of problems over at Warner Brothers, some of which I had heard about, others that came as news.

Emmy-winning choreographer Travis Wall is being investigated after multiple people have come forward accusing him of sexually inappropriate and predatory behavior.

Leon Black, the billionaire best friend of Jeffrey Epstein, is being investigated by the Manhattan D.A. for rape and sexual assault.

Russia’s state media accused CNBC reporter Hadley Gamble of acting like a “sexual object” during her interview with Vladimir Putin so as to distract him. You have to read the full description here, it’s insane.

Vanity Fair has a list of the big-name comedians who have apologized to Monica Lewinsky for the gross jokes they told about her — along with a sampling of the jokes which … maybe is unnecessary?

A woman who appeared on The Dr. Phil Show as a teen is suing McGraw and ViacomCBS claiming that she was sexually assaulted at the Utah treatment center he recommended she be sent to.

The mental health organization that Jamie Lynn Spears was planning on donating money to from her book sales has told her to keep her dirty money.

A number of women have come forward to accuse the band All Time Low of being sexually inappropriate with them when they were minors. The band denies the claims. Hey, at least their name is appropriate.
