Lopilato noted that the backlash was encouraged by the public's high-strung mindset during quarantine; people at home going stir-crazy are more likely to create false drama in order to entertain themselves.
Grammy-winning singer Michael Bublé has faced intense scrutiny since he appeared to "elbow" his wife "aggressively" in an Instagram Live feed.
His wife and Argentinian model and actress, 32, Luisana Lopilato took to Instagram to defend her husband after backlash flooded Twitter and Instagram. Bublé, 44, and his wife have been live streaming to their fans while quarantining together. Many viewers allege that Bublé has shown a pattern of abusive behavior in their livestreams, from "elbowing" his wife and grabbing her arm for speaking over him in a 2-second video clip to telling her "I'm going to kill you" when she fumbled the phone after a livestream.

Current owner Jeff Lowe claims there are bodies, including "a young American Indian boy," buried on the property
It was recently reported that Carole Baskin had been awarded the property of the Tiger King Zoo—formerly the G.W. Zoo—in Wynnewood, Oklahoma after a judgment found in her favor.
As fans of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King will know, her long-standing legal feud with Joe Exotic (AKA Joseph Maldonado-Passage, né Shreibvogel) over his violation of the Big Cat Rescue trademark resulted in a million dollar settlement in her favor. But for the most part Exotic managed to dodge paying Baskin through a series of illegal property transfers that temporarily protected his animal park from seizure.
Now that Exotic is in prison for attempting to have Baskin murdered—along with illegal animal trafficking and several violations of the Endangered Species Act—a judge has finally ruled that the park is hers, and she will be taking over ownership of the 16-acre property later this year. But Jeff Lowe—the park's current owner and the personification of a mid-life crisis—insists that there are no hard feelings, saying, "She deserves this property."

The singers magnetic hit, which debuted at No. 1 on this day in 1967, still fiercely resonates
On this day in 1967, Aretha Franklin's "Respect" debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts. The Otis Redding re-imagining would become the definitive song of the 1960's Civil Rights and Feminist Movements.
At just 24-years-old, the soon-to-be Queen of Soul took a song that was a desperate plea for companionship and transformed it into a cutthroat demand for equality. "Come to me for I'm begging, come to me for I'm begging, darling," Redding howls in his version. "Your kisses, sweeter than honey," Franklin croons on her re-imagining almost in direct response. "And guess what? So is my money." When Franklin's version continued to grow in popularity, Redding felt both emasculated and proud. "The next song is a song that a girl took away from me. A good friend of mine." Redding said playfully before diving into his rendition during his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival.
