Bill Cosby Denies Rape Allegations Via Attorney Statement: Read It Here

Bill Cosby is in the news for all the wrong reasons these days.

Over the past few weeks, accusations of rape have resurfaced against the comedian, eight years after he settled one sexual assault case out of court and over a decade since any of the alleged incidents took place.

Barbara Bowman, one of Cosby’s self-proclaimed victims, published a Washington Post op-ed this week titled “Bill Cosby Raped Me. Why Did It Take 30 Years For People To Believe My Story?”

Tamara Green, meanwhile, recently referred to Cosby as a “sexual predator” and told People Magazine that he drugged and gripped her back in 1970.

Cosby was asked about these claims in an interview with NPR last week and refused any comment.

But now an attorney for the former sitcom star has issued a statement on behalf of his famous client.

“Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true,” John P. Schmitt said today, adding:

“Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representative.”

In response to the scandal, Cosby canceled a scheduled upcoming appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

He also watched as an attempt by his social media team went horribly awry. They tried to have Internet users create some fun memes in honor of the star… and this happened instead:

Stare at the Sweater


Thanks a lot, Internet users. Now we’ll never be able to watch The Cosby Show the same way ever again!

Teacher Shares 15-Year-Old Student’s Bikini Pics at School Assembly to Prove Point Re: Social Media

A teacher reportedly took his desire to prove a point about the risks of social media to new heights, shaming a 15-year-old student in epic fashion.

The instructor allegedly took it upon himself to cyber-stalk one particular teenage girl, find bikini pictures of her, and showing them to her classmates.

A hundred of her classmates. At a school assembly.

A Bikini Girl

That’s right. A teacher went onto a student’s Facebook page, grabbed a picture of her in a bikini, and then humiliated her with it in front of her peers.

The victim’s mom has filed complaints. Shocking.

Her parents want justice from Eggbuckland Community College’s head teacher, the board of governors, and England’s Office for Standards in Education.

The mom said, “She’s really upset and hurt and this has knocked her confidence, She’s not the type of girl who likes attention like this … she’s a tomboy.”

“She doesn’t wear make-up and she doesn’t even have her ears pierced,” she said, noting with irony that “it’s not often you even get her in a bikini.”

The school apologized on behalf of the teacher who engaged in the public shaming, but still appeared to defend the point of the assembly itself.

@CarlyCrunkBear


Carly “@CarlyCrunkBear” McKinney, whose handle says it all really, was a 10th grade math teacher who often posted images like this on Twitter. Her employers were not happy and placed her on administrative leave. Her students thought she was pretty awesome, and protested to get her back. To no avail. She was fired in the end.

“This was an error of judgment,” the school said in a statement, adding that “the member of staff had not intended to cause any embarrassment.”

“She wanted to illustrate how freely available images are, through the internet. We are really sorry for the way in which this important message was delivered.”

Mmmkay. Call us crazy, but …

How is blindsiding a 15-year-old girl with a photo you took off her Facebook account and showing the entire school not designed to cause embarrassment?!

Just curious. Please, do tell.

Obviously, people should be careful what they put online, but if the teacher really cared about this kid, she would have noted this example in private.

We all laugh at parents humiliating kids on Facebook in harmless ways, and at some of the Facebook fails that have become legendary on the Internet.

This is too far, though. Too far.

5 O'Clock Somewhere


Drinking and driving is a really bad idea. Drinking and driving combined with taking a picture and posting to Facebook is even worse.

CBS Station Accidentally Links to Porn Site in Local Weather Forecast Tweet, Sparks #Rockbone Trend

Today’s weather forecast? Surprisingly HOT AND STEAMY for October, at least in Memphis, where a local CBS Station accidentally linked to a porn site instead.

News channel WREG posted a tweet on Tuesday morning reminding viewers to “use our interactive radar to track the rain and storms,” with this link, hilariously:

Rock Bone

SPOILER ALERT: That link does not go to their interactive radar.

PornHub (dot) com, for the uninitiated, puts a lot of different things on your radar. Just ask user Rockbone (possibly Rockboner) who got a nice traffic boost today.

The tweet has since been deleted by the station, and WREG has apologized, seemingly blaming a hacker for the incident in a follow-up Tweet …

Tweetz

The station also made lemonade out of lemons as the story went viral, posting (non-porn) links to a list of charities and urging people to consider donating.

That was awesome of them, but so were the jokes that ensued.

Twitter promptly did what it does best and started sharing this at the speed of light, with the puns and jokes and the hashtag #rockbone trending.

Well handled, WREG, and Twitter. Everyone is a winner here.

Not so much in the case of these social media users …

Jessa Duggar Uses the Holocaust to Attack Abortion, Evolution

Yeah, she went there. 

Just one day after Jessa Duggar bashed evolution and atheism on Instagram, she returned to the social media site to express an even more controversial view.

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald in DC

Jessa and her fiance Ben Seewald are in DC at the moment, and according to her IG page they recently paid a visit to the US Holocaust Museum.

The future Mrs. Seewald was clearly moved by the experience, and with good reason. The museum brings to vivid life one of the most horrific tragedies in human history.

Unfortunately, and all too predictably, the emotions that Jessa experienced at the museum inspired an lengthy, impassioned defense of her various political causes and religious convictions – none of which have anything to do with the millions of lives lost in concentration camps.

Jessa’s latest Insta-rant is too long to reproduce here, but she begins by saying, “I walked through the Holocaust museum today…very sobering.”

So far, so good. She goes on to lament man’s inhumanity toward man and decry the horrors of racism. 

Then she begins to go off the rails, asserting that racism stems “from the evolutionary idea that man evolved from something less than human; that some people groups are ‘less evolved’ and others ‘more evolved.'”

Say what? We’re not sure what evolutionary biologists Jessa’s been chatting with, but the gist of the theory is that we all evolved from different species. 

There’s literally not a single reputable scientist on the planet claiming that “some people groups are ‘less evolved.'”

But hey, if your head hasn’t exploded yet, don’t worry – it gets worse.

Following a lengthy quote from the Book of Proverbs (We highly doubt Jessa abides by every law in the Old Testament, but that’s a conversation for another time.), Jessa mercifully wraps things up.

But first, of course, she gut-punches you with nonsense one last time:

“We must be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS #ProLife”

That bit at the end was the first time that Jessa mentioned anything about abortion, and to be clear, we’re not attacking her stance on the matter. It’s a complex issue and not a debate we’re interested in wading into here.

All we’re saying is, DON’T FREAKIN’ COMPARE ANYTHING TO THE HOLOCAUST! There. It’s that simple. 

It’s like using a racial slur or cat-calling a strange woman on the street. Just don’t do it ever, or you’re a jackass. Is that so hard?

Watch 19 Kids and Counting online at TV Fanatic to see if you can find a scene in which Jessa says something smart.

Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald: So in Love


Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are now engaged to be married after an 11-month courtship. Here’s a gallery of photos of their love!

Alabama Sorority Girl Kicked Out After Sending Racist Snapchat

The Internet exploded this week over an image sent over the popular social media app Snapchat by a sorority member at the University of Alabama.

She quickly became the most miserable person in the state not named Nick Saban.

The image is allegedly of three college girls taking a selfie and reads “Chi O got NO n—-s!!!!!” followed by a few typical college girl emojis. Check it out:

Racist Snapchat

Initially, people posited that the Snapchat may have been doctored with the racist image, but the official Chi Omega Facebook put out a statement saying:

“Chi Omega is aware of the image that has been circulating via social media and is in communication with The University of Alabama administration.”

Amid rising controversy, the group said, “What was expressed is absolutely reprehensible and completely inconsistent with Chi Omega‘s values and policies.”

“Chi Omega took swift disciplinary action in accordance with the organization’s policies and procedures. The woman who took the photo is no longer a member of the chapter.”

“Chi Omega embraces women from all walks of life, who come together to form a network of friends with high standards and similar values.”

“The Chi Omega chapter at the University of Alabama pledged a diverse group of young women, which included several new members who self-identified as minorities.”

The University of Alabama’s school newspaper, The Crimson White, picked up the story and reported Chi Omega had accepted two black women into the sorority.

In addition, several others who identify as a racial minority were admitted. Judy Bonner, the University’s president, sent out a school-wide email saying:

“We are all extremely disappointed when any student uses language that is disrespectful or offensive to any segment of the UA community.”

Disappointment is putting it mildly.

LeAnn Rimes’ husband, step-sons ‘help’ her do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

FFN_Rimes_LeAnn_AFP_072314_51485159

It was inevitable that somewhere, someone would “nominate” LeAnn Rimes for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. So she posted her video yesterday, and wouldn’t you know, it involves Eddie Cibrian and the “bonus boys.” Brandi Glanville has repeatedly requested that LeAnn not involve Mason and Jake in her social media adventures, but it’s like LeAnn can’t help but poke the (drunk) bear. Here’s the video:

Meh. She wasn’t wearing a bra, right?

On this week’s episode of LeAnn & Eddie, they take LeAnn’s little dog Precious to a pet therapist. I was going to embed the sneak peak video, but no – you can see it here. It’s actually really, really funny to see LeAnn and Eddie struggle to “act naturally” through their rehearsed dialogue. So natural. So unaffected. #AllTheEmmys.

And in case you needed a palate cleanser after seeing a soaking wet LeAnn, here’s Eddie Vedder’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I love this video.

Area Mom Posts Cute Facebook Photo of Baby Son … Who is Now 31 Years Old

Moms. We love them, but they don’t understand the Google, fail at texting in more ways than we can count and clearly shouldn’t be allowed access to the Facebook.

At the very least, their social media behaviors should be closely monitored.

Why? Because as Facebook grows in popularity among Americans young and old, amusing exchanges like these are beyond awkward for their grown kids:

I'm 31 Years Old!

James may be 31, but he’ll always be his mom’s baby boy. This is a sweet sentiment, but he likely has other words for it after she blasted this photo publicly.

No wonder more and more “kids these days” prefer Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, SnapChat, etc. Facebook is officially your mom’s social network hot spot!

Using the service to embarrass family members, intentionally or otherwise, has become as ubiquitous as Facebook itself for users of middle to advanced age.

Whether they’re posting baby pics, offering up TMI updates about their own lives or otherwise misusing it, it’s basically a ticking time bomb for you nowadays.

We’re not sure if it’s good or bad, but James is far from alone. Check out 13 more classic cases of parents humiliating kids on Facebook after the jump …

Khloe Kardashian to Adrienne Bailon: You Have Some Nerve!

It’s safe to say that Adrienne Bailon will not be invited to the Kardashian household for Christmas this year.

The former Cheetah Girls member recently went off to Latina Magazine; first saying that her previous affiliation with the Kardashians hurt her career and then slamming Rob Kardashian for cheating on her.

Bailon said Rob “strategically” planned how he would sleep with other women and that she never considered forgiving him.

In response to Adrienne’s barbs, Kim Kardashian referred to Bailon as a hypocrite and told her to let her beef with Rob go.

And now Khloe Kardashian is also going off on her former friend.

“Thought her and I were cool SMH,” Khloe wrote online this afternoon, retweeting a fan who commented: “Adrienne has a lot of nerve to talk s— about Rob when he is obviously dealing with s—.”

Another follower asked whether Kim was “shading” Bailon, to which Khloe replied:

“Don’t think it was a secret. For sure. Don’t kick my brother while he’s down.”

Rob Kardashian, of course, has been battling weight issues and self-esteem issues for many months now. He reportedly got into a fight with members of his family and didn’t even attend Kim’s wedding to Kanye West in Italy this spring.

Instead, he came home, deleted his social media messages and started again from scratch,

Khloe Kardashian chills here in front of a green screen. She is now the big 3-0!!!

Bailon, meanwhile, has also said Rob stalked her and that she had to make up a boyfriend to get him off her back.

In related news, Bailon apparently has starred on some show called The Real.

Kim Kardashian Photoshop Fail: What Happened to Her Arm?!

Kim Kardashian is positively owning Instagram this week.

Earlier today, a Kim Kardashian nip slip earned the reality star plenty of attention on the social network, and not because of the blonde wig she sports in the photo.

Shortly thereafter, an eagle-eyed follower noticed something odd about the photo below:

Kim Kardashian Photoshop Fail

Good God what happened to her arm?! 

Yes, either Kim’s an amputee now and no one noticed because we were all too busy staring at her exposed boob, or that is one epic Photoshop fail.

This whole Kim missing her right arm thing adds a whole new layer to the earlier Nipplegate controversy:

We now know that Kim not only carefully studies every photo that she posts to Instagram, she also has them professionally Photoshopped. (You don’t really think Kim learned the program herself, do you?)

So how does that relate to the earlier exposed areola selfie? Glad you asked, hypothetical boob enthusiast.

Now that we know the level of attention to detail that goes into Kim’s Instagram posts, it seems almost impossible that she wasn’t aware of the nipple in the pic that she tried to pass off as an innocent “blonde wig photo.”

You almost outsmarted us, Kim Kardashian. Add that to the list of sentences you never thought you’d read.

This is a photo of Kim Kardashian’s cleavage. Not that we needed to tell you that, of course. We’re sure you already knew.

Pippa Middleton: Fired as Newspaper Columnist!

Pippa Middleton and her “Sport and Social” column have been axed from her post at Britain’s respected Daily Telegraph after just six months on the job.

Kate Middleton‘s little sister confirms that her contract is not being renewed by the publication, which brought her on board to great fanfare late last year.

Pippa in Blue

The younger Middleton’s column with the Telegraph began with a piece on her new athletic passion, boxing, which she calls “a pure but pleasing agony.”

Her columns went on to depict a string of exciting antics, from flipping pancakes to cycling underwater. However, a source at the newspaper says that:

“The readers just weren’t into it. There was a lot of negative mail coming in after each column and there were too many off-limit subjects for her. They ran out of ideas.”

It’s a second literary disappointment for Pippa Middleton, who was criticized for cashing in on connections, not talent, to secure a publishing deal.

Future book plans were shelved by Viking after her Celebration debut tanked, although she continues to write for both Waitrose Kitchen and Vanity Fair.

She also remains Lord of the Arsetocracy … so there’s that. Whether there was a false bottom or not, she’s got one of the best on the entire planet.

Plus she’s still rich. Could be worse off.

Kesha


Hey, it’s Ke$ha! And there is Ke$ha’s butt! The singer is anything but shy in this Twit pic.
