Apparently, actor Zach Braff is very busy in Ukraine and Russia.

If you don’t know him, Zach Braff is most recognized for playing the lead role John “J.D.” Dorian in the medical comedy Scrubs.

Scrubs ended almost ten years ago, but apparently, as Zach Braff discovered yesterday, some people still remember the good old J.D.

Braff posted a picture on twitter of his old role as it was being used on an ad. He was later informed by fans that the ad was actually one for male erection pills.

And if that wasn’t enough, just a couple days prior to this Braff found a different ad of someone using his face to sell a computer repair service.

Now, as funny as all this is, it isn’t as great as knowing that Zach Braff isn’t alone. In fact, illegally using celebrities’ faces to market a product seems to be fairly common in Ukraine.

Zach Braff hasn’t said anything about whether he’ll be pressing charges or not for the illegal use of his image. In the meantime, he’s just using it to share some laughs.

Doctor Who Writer Gareth Roberts In Trouble For Homophobic & Transphobic Tweet

Gareth Roberts

Gareth Roberts is a writer for the Doctor Who franchise.

Roberts has written for the tv show in episodes like “The Lodger,” “Closing Time,” and “The Caretaker.” Plus, he’s worked on novels, comics, and audio stories for the franchise as well.

And Roberts has recently gotten himself in some trouble for writing up some pretty transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, and just all around petty words on twitter.

Roberts wrote in the tweets (that have since been deleted):

“I love how trannies choose names like Munroe, Paris and Chelsea. It's never Julie or Bev is it?” and then in a follow-up tweet he wrote, “It's almost like a clueless gayboy's idea of a glamorous lady. But of course it's definitely not that.”

Of course, other members of twitter have taken offense to this.

But it seems like Gareth Roberts really doesn’t care who he insults in his tweets. He reminds us of Minecraft creator Markus Persson for that.

And we also have to point out that on Roberts’s twitter profile he boasts that he has written for Doctor Who, the Librarians, and the Sarah Jones Adventures. But, he also boasts about the fact that he is a member of Parliament with Mondas South and is proudly Conservative.

That said, we would be remiss if we let this negativity be the only aspect of this story. While Roberts’s comments and actions are newsworthy to some, such negativity shouldn’t be the only part of that news.

As such, we’d like to turn the spotlight to one of Roberts's former co-workers who has written for Doctor Who and who has helped the LGBTQ community in terms of representation.

You see, there is Russell T. Davies who was the showrunner for the revived British sci fi show during its first four seasons (or series depending on where you live).

Davies introduced the pansexual character Captain Jack Harkness, and thus the wonderfully joyful John Barrowman, into our lives.

In addition, he also created shows like Queer As Folk and the shows Cucumber and Banana (which are getting an American adaption run by him, Shonda Rhimes, and Allan Heinberg who wrote the screenplay for Wonder Woman).

So, let’s remember that while there may be some hate and stupidity out there, there is always some good working opposite of it.

This Deleted Scene From "The Devil Wears Prada" Has People Shocked It Was Even Filmed

All Rights: 20th Century Fox

Remember The Devil Wears Prada, the mid-2000s film starring Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and Meryl Streep about a girl who accidently falls straight into the epicenter of the fashion world?

That movie has been out for over ten years now, but some call it a classic or a nice reminder of what Hollywood movies used to look like before everything centered around superhero movies.

All of that has left the film in some of our hearts and minds, which makes this trending news that much more potent.

You see, a deleted scene has popped up thanks to the help of Buzzfeed writer Spencer Althouse. Spencer tweeted out the deleted scene with the message that, “I'm just seeing this deleted scene from The Devil Wears Prada for the first time, and honestly it changed the whole movie for me.

 

After seeing that clip, many fans agree that this scene changes the context of the movie and specifically of the character Miranda Priestly (Streep’s character).

Priestly, is supposed to be the always strong, always cold leader of the fashion world. By including the scene, the character is shown to be vulnerable and ultimately changes the viewer's perspective of her.

 

 

 

 

 

The scene shows us Priestly dealing with a drunk husband at a very public function and then thanking Andy Sachs (Hathaway's character) for helping her.

Plus, while there is no real mention of it again in the movie, there’s also the air of understanding around the scene that this isn’t the first time the man has done something like this.

In addition, if you’ve seen the movie you might remember the scene with “The Book.” Hathaway’s character is charged with entering Priestly’s home in order to get the editor’s draft of the magazine's next issue and she walks in on some heated whispers between Priestly and her husband.

Perhaps that scene and this deleted one were to inform the viewer that Priestly is dealing with a difficult marriage both privately and semi-publicly?

 

And added on top of that, fans were shocked to see that the character actually thanked her assistant. That goes totally against the curt and cruel characterization she was given before the scene. 

But seeing as the scene was later deleted, it seems the director and editor came to the same conclusion as the fans that the character development from this scene wasn't right.

After seeing the clip, what do you think? Does this change your perspective of the character? Are you still a fan of The Devil Wears Prada?

And lastly, wanna go re-watch the movie now? I know I do.

Porn Star Jessie Colter Talks More About His Almost Murder

Screenshot: Twitter @jessiecolterxxx

Last week, we reported on Gay porn model and escort Jessie Colter being attacked in a hotel while on the job.

Colter shared with Facebook and Twitter that he had been attacked by two men when he was scheduled to meet with only one of them.

He said that though he is a big guy, he was lucky to get away in that situation and wanted others to be careful for similar situations.

Well, it looks like Colter wanted to respond to all of the love he’s received because late last night he took to Twitter again, except this time he recorded a video.

In the video Colter explains that he wasn’t just attacked by the men but that they had planned to murder him. An investigation found evidence showing that the two had much worse plans than an assault for him.

In addition, he shares that he’s still psychologically recovering from the incident but that he’s is happy to have received so much support from the online community.

Sadly, since he is still trying to get past the incident he didn’t want to share any more information than that, but perhaps in the future (and if the investigation pulls through) he will be able to.

You can watch the video down below.

Ann Coulter Implies Hurricane Harvey Is Punishment To Gays

In the only way Ann Coulter knows how, she took to Twitter to voice her conservative opinions about homosexuality and the horrible losses caused by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.

Hurricane Ann really knows how to hit below the belt with her right wing hate in 140 characters or less. Especially during a time when Texas should be receiving any support possible. In her tweet, Coulter is referring to former mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, who was openly gay and served as mayor of Houston until 2016.

Rapper Ca$h Out Starts Thirst And Debate Over His Big Tweet

Dear lord, get a load of this one (or be jealous that you can’t).

At this point it’s become fair game for celebrities to use social media to get some attention from fans. Scroll through Twitter or Instagram and soon you’ll have an eyeful.

And one of the latest thirst traps that’s making fans go crazy? A few not-so-subtle tweets sent out by rapper CA$H OUT.

A couple days ago the rapper tweeted a video of himself standing up from his seat to turn off the video. Pointless... other than the fact that you get an eyeful of his bulge through his shorts. (That and the fact that he shared a link to his latest album. Really Ca$h Out?)

 

 And then fans were quick to remember a video he took of himself in a towel a few weeks back (which also had a link).

 

Now at first, some might call the bulge fake, but others say its all real. But of course, none of us know for certain.

But at the very least, his fans are having fun imagining if it is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think? Do you think its real? Fake? Or does it not matter at all?

A French Spyware Company Offered To Spy on Sons To Find Out If They’re Gay

A French youth LGBTQ+ rights group, called L'Amicale des jeunes du Refuge, posted a link on twitter to an article by French spyware company Fireworld.

And yes, that is Colton Haynes as the article's Featured Image.

That tweet was then retweeted by French Secretary of State for Equality Marlène Schiappa, who also said that this article showed that "homophobia and sexism have their roots in the same gender stereotypes. We will fight them together."

The article, which was in French and has since been taken down, was focused towards adults and talked about how the parents could tell if their son (Son specifically. Not children, but son) is gay.

The article tried to explain some signs to look out for such as liking to read or liking theatre, being shy, liking female singers and divas, and "taking good care of himself.”

The article went further to sympathize with parents who were concerned about their son’s sexuality as, “family is fundamental. That's why the sexual orientation of your children, directly responsible for the continuation of your family, is very important to you.”

The article then stated some further steps the parents could take in order to confirm their child’s sexuality. This included “monitoring his Facebook use,” watching to see “if he has visited gay forums,” and “spying on his private messages.”

And how would you do all that you ask? Why, of course, by using the Fireworld spyware app.

Which, by the way, is an illegal act in France since that would be using a spyware program on someone else’s computer to monitor them. But, Fireworld might be trying to use raising a child as a loophole in the system.

But once again, once L'Amicale des jeunes du Refuge and twitter raised a fuss about the article, it was immediately taken down and Fireworld apologized.

They also said that “the article had the sole aim of improving search engine optimization and was never intended to be read by humans.”

As someone who has written for SEO sites before, I get that.

Companies like Fireworld hire third party companies, which hire writers, to write random articles that they can shove into dark corners of their websites. Then, they have more content that people can find on search engines and hopefully find their website/service through.

That said, companies do have the option of monitoring what articles the SEO companies write up. It just looks like Fireworld was caught not caring about what random writers put on their website.

Plus, on the English version of Fireworld, there is a wide variety of articles that cover topics such as how to "control your teenage offspring's PC", monitoring "what your employees are doing" and "detecting infidelity in your marriage or relationship.”

So, it doesn’t look like the “monitor your son to confirm he’s gay” article is the only one of its kind that Fireworld is willing to publish and it won’t be the last.

This Man Was Denied From Adopting A Cat Because He's Gay

Alex Andreou (Facebook) & Twitter Screenshot

Meet Alex Andreou. Alex is a writer and actor who wanted to adopt a cat.

As Alex states on a tweet that is currently going viral, he was on his way to adopt a cat that desperately needed a home… when a homophobe attacked.

If you want enlarged versions of the pictures, you can find them below.

Apparently, to the “owner” of the cat, being gay is so sinful that it can get in the way of taking care of a defenseless creature.

And as sad as the cat owner is, so too was Alex’s ride home after being denied his potential pet.

 But, luckily the good side of twitter was there to support him in his time of need.

And, even better, it turns out Alex knew a friend who lived near the disgusting woman denying him and the cat their happy life together. That friend offered to pretend to adopt the cat in Alex’s stead.

But, that's when things got a little weird, because it turns out that the friend was rejected by the woman too. That's when Alex started to suspect foul play (or rather, fouler play than just homophobic trolling).

That's when Alex decided to confront the woman behind it all.

Sadly, Alex Andreou never got a cat from that woman, but he didn't let that stop him. See, Alex decided to turn his misfortune into someone else's lucky day. Because, not only did Alex end up adopting a cat somewhere else, but he ended up adopting two.

Bless the good side of the internet for showing us the humanity left in the world. And bless Alex for doing the best he could in a stupid situation.

Lesbian Couple Goes Viral For Yelling Racist Remarks At Student For Burping

A lesbian couple is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

The couple was filmed in a Save Mart arguing with a Filipino woman and her college aged son. The son, named Angelo Cabuang, admits that what started the argument was him burping loudly in the store. This then apparently started a fight which escalated to the point when racial remarks were being thrown at Cabuang and his mother.

But of course, Angelo’s phone was ready and waiting.

 

 

If you’re wondering how we know this was in fact a lesbian couple and not just two none related women, it’s because the women admit this themselves.

While in the heat of the argument with Angelo Cabuang and his mother, one woman shouts out, “She’s my wife. You’ve got a problem with her, you go through me.”

Two alleged workers at the Save Mart came out on Twitter to denounce the two women and their racist remarks (though one went so low as to use homophobic language to do it).

 

 

Honestly everyone, this whole situation shows that just because you’re LGBTQ doesn’t mean that you’re progressive or accepting of all people.

That said, I do agree with the woman that we’ll never see for ourselves what the inciting moment was like. Viral videos like this are just one side of the story and we’ll never get a full understanding of that side.

That said, was this burp really so bad and offensive? Did it really deserve all this drama? Probably not.

Did race need to come into the issue? Absolutely not.

Clay Aiken Regrets Defending Trump

After appearing on Celebrity Apprentice in 2012 and coming in second on the season finale, out singer Clay Aiken has been public about his support for our current president Donald Trump, who hosted the show. But since the events in Charlottesville have  transpired, Donald Trump’s comments on white nationalism are proving that the former reality show host turned Commander-in-Chief needs to hear that phrase he coined—“You’re fired!”

Aiken has come to the realization that his support for Trump was wrong and he should have never jumped on the “Make America Great Again” bandwagon--and he's claiming he never supported him! Like many other public figures and citizens, Aiken is getting a taste of what it’s like to have a racist bigot in the White House.

Here's what America's notorious runner-up is tweeting:
