Delete old tweets
Just after Kevin Hart was selected to host the Oscars ceremony in February, he deleted a tweet. But now, people on social media are taking notice of some of Hart's other older tweets that he might have forgotten to delete, some of which notably include homophobic slurs like "fag," "no homo," and "gay face." The Philadelphia native and experienced comedian was selected to host the 2019 Oscars on Tuesday. Shortly after, he deleted a 2011 tweet."Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay,'" the tweet, which Hart deleted sometime between Wednesday and Thursday, read.Now, he's being called out for what he's said — and not just on Twitter. In "Oscars host Kevin Hart's homophobia is no laughing matter," The Guardian's Benjamin Lee questioned the Academy's choice, amid its desperate attempt to show "a more inclusive side," Lee wrote:"Calling someone a 'fat faced fag,' … [Read more...] about People call out Kevin Hart after he deletes homophobic tweet

Watching the establishment media rush to the defense of disgraced Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, is a disgusting and amoral wonder to behold. After most of the establishment media spent nearly 24 hours all but ignoring the biggest story in the entertainment world since the detonation of #MeToo, it was only after the Walt Disney Company fired Gunn on Friday afternoon that the media bothered to report a bombshell they hoped their non-reporting would keep from exploding.Even so, the reporting is not accurate. It is partisan and dishonest spin. Gunn’s unbelievably sleazy and disturbing history of fantasizing about and belittling child rape has been spun into an unjust firing because mean ole’ conservatives and “white supremacists” dug up a bunch of “old” and merely “offensive tweets” that merely contained “tasteless” jokes. Because if you hate President Donald Trump, the American media will literally let you get away … [Read more...] about Nolte: Fired ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn Has Bigger Problems than ‘Old Tweets’
Avi Selk, The Washington Post Published 6:34 am PDT, Monday, July 16, 2018 It has been five days since a dozen boys were rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand, and five days since Elon Musk has been wandering in a Twitter labyrinth of his own making. The Silicon Valley engineer and billionaire was briefly seen in Thailand last week, hauling a miniature submarine to the mouth of the cave just before an international dive team rescued the boys without it. Since then, he has been arguing with people who accuse him of shoehorning himself into the drama and imagining hypotheticals in which rescuers had not deemed his hastily built submarine unnecessary and impractical. This has, inevitably, led Musk into public arguments people who actually participated in the rescue operation - a rhetorical war that he drastically escalated on Sunday, when he called one of the cave explorers a "pedo," prompting the explorer to consider a lawsuit.
