Did the NFL know?
TMZ has posted security camera footage of Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt viciously attacking a woman in the hallway of a Cleveland hotel in February of 2018. The video begins with Hunt appearing to argue with the 19-year-old woman, before brutally shoving her. Soon, several more individuals appear to come from the hotel room and attempt to restrain Hunt. He then shoves one of his friends into the woman, sending them both flying into the wall, seeming to leave them both dazed. The woman crouches, attempting to regain her bearings, when Hunt comes over and kicks her, before being finally dragged away by his friends. The incident reportedly began at 3:22 am on February 10th, and the police were called shortly afterwards, but no arrests were made.
According to TMZ, the woman told the police at the time that the altercation began because "Kareem kicked her out of his room after she refused to hook up with one of the men in Kareem's entourage." In contrast, Hunt's friends claimed that "the woman had gone crazy when asked to leave and called Kareem the n-word" and that she was lying that he had assaulted her in order to get money out of Hunt. This newly released footage clearly proves the woman was telling the truth about the assault, and raises questions as to why Hunt has not faced any legal consequences.
The NFL has thus far not suspended the star running back, despite the incident happening nearly a year ago. In August, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt addressed the allegations, and said, "Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year. I'm sure he learned some lessons this offseason and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future." The question now is, did the NFL know about the existence of the damning video, and cho
se not to act?

Animation is lame and live-action is awesome.
Everybody loves Disney live-action remakes.
In a world plagued by racism, disease, and a seemingly endless bounty of spiraling misfortune, at least we can all agree that Disney knocks it out of the park every time they dredge up an old, animated movie for a live-action makeover because cartoons are for babies.
Sure, some of us thought the original Beauty and the Beast was fine, but could lame, 2D Belle ever hold a candle to 3D Emma Watson? And yeah, the original Lion King was okay, I guess, but there's nobody in the world who preferred cartoon Scar's rendition of "Be Prepared" to the incredible feat of getting a real lion to sing it in the live-action remake.
Being a Disney fan can be hard sometimes, as you have fond memories of beloved childhood movies but also don't want people to make fun of you for liking cartoons. That's why, out of all the corporations in the world, Disney is undoubtedly the most selfless, willing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to bring their old, outdated movies into the modern age—all for the fans.
After Halle Berry walked back her consideration of playing a transgender character, we look back at how Hollywood has repeatedly fumbled trans representation.
Halle Berry has made headlines this week after turning down a role in which, had she gone through with production, would have represented a transgender man.
Berry, an Academy Award-winning actress known for roles in films like Monster's Ball, Catwoman, and Gothika, took to Twitter Monday night to apologize for considering the role. "Over the weekend I had the opportunity to discuss my consideration of an upcoming role as a transgender man, and I"d like to apologize for those remarks," Berry wrote. "As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories."
The post continued: "I am grateful for the guidance and critical conversation over the past few days and I will continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake. I vow to be an ally in using my voice to promote better representation on-screen, both in front of and behind the camera."
