“I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show until everybody stands up,” Kanye West said this weekend during one of his concerts in Sydney, Australia, on the tail end of his Yeezus tour. “Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit.”
When two fans failed to stand, Kanye was PISSED! He singled them out until they were booed by the entire audience! “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable,” he fumed.
Events soon took a mortifying turn however, when it finally dawned on Mr. Kim Kardashian that the two fans WERE in fact disabled. The lightbulb was switched on after one of the fans removed a prosthetic limb and waved it in the air like he just didn’t care.
“Now if he is in a wheelchair, then it’s fine,” West conceded, albeit somewhat grudgingly.
But wait. Hold your horses. Before you get all bummed out about what an asshole Kanye is, remember: The guy has a God complex. Did you not happen to notice the name of his tour?? It's firkin' Yeezus!
He wasn’t yelling at the disabled people but cursing the apparent failure of his special powers. Like a modern day Jesus, Kanye was attempting to heal the maimed!
And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them. So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified God of Israel.… or in this case, Kanye West from Chicago.

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."
