Summary of vid:
-only those who don't know how Hollywood works are upset about this casting
-there are no "A-list female Asian celebrities"
-they would never even make the movie without Johansson or an A-List white actress like her
-it's not Johannson or the studio's fault, it's THE SYSTEM
(because those things exist in mutually exclusive bubbles, i guess??????)
-don't blame Johansson, you guys :(((
some gems from the source, which is a neckbeard circlejerk applauding both the video and its creator:
"Landis is the prolific writer of “Chronicle, “American Ultra” and “Victor Frankenstein” who just sold two seven-figure specs — “Bright” to Netflix with Will Smith attached to star, and “Deeper” to MGM with Bradley Cooper attached to star. He’s young but he knows what he’s talking about, and judging by his rainbow-striped mohawk, it’s fair to assume he’s a liberal."
don't bother looking, this isn't from the onion. i triple-checked.
"So when racially minded fanboys around the world sounded off on Johansson’s casting as a traditionally Japanese character, Landis had some strong words for those ignorant of Hollywood casting politics. To be clear, he didn’t defend her casting (sorry, EW and IndieWire), he merely explained it as PART OF A BROKEN SYSTEM"
that's all. those are the only people who are angry. 'racially-minded fanboys'. asians don't actually exist nor do we seek representation, we are mythical creatures that only appear in anime and to liven things up during 'sixteen candles'.
"Another report last week took Paramount to task for experimenting with visual effects tests that would’ve made a supporting cast member look more traditionally Asian. Many took exception to the test, but the truth is that Paramount has every right to experiment. The studio ran the test (not on Johansson’s character, according to a statement) and opted not to proceed. Where’s the harm in that? A studio made a smart decision and it still can’t win!"
if you're wondering - why, yes, the author of this article is white
"My guess is, everyone bitching and moaning now will still shell out to see “Shell,” because while casting controversies may drive clicks, they hardly ever keep haters away from theater."
lol because Pan, Aloha, Gods of Egypt, etc, were all such hits? sit down, jeffrey
TLDR: White guy makes video saying people angry about whitewashing are ignorant to how Hollywood works, other white guy writes article praising him for it, water remains wet
more of the laughable commentary at the source: 1 | 2
The source includes a link to a montage of yellowface which it calls "racially misguided" casting, if above's commentary hasn't already keyed you into their view on the subject.
EDIT: Mods, changed the title to include the name of said mouthbreather. Thanks!
Someone posted this on Reddit, claiming that this Tumblr allegedly belongs to Savage and Miller. They've since deleted their posts, but the story was that one of their friends was propositioned by Miller and sent the link to the tumblr in order to give him an idea of what to expect.
Their original content primarily consists of:
- Hardcore BDSM
- Torture, restriction, masks, cages, etc
- "Duct tape bondage. Australian Slave Slut joining us this weekend for intense 24/7 bondage for 4 straight days."
The Tumblr (theatticformen) was deleted a few hours ago when word got out on Twitter, but since the internet is forever you can still access the archive in several ways
The pictures are either faceless or blurred, but people figured out it was them mapping their Instagram posts/advertisements to the content posted on the Tumblr as well as obviously comparing bodies and marks
this source is full of the NSFW stuff. Ask your mom first.
alternatively go here for the pictures (there were videos but they seem to have disappeared)
source 2, source 3
it's intense af but I don't think anyone's surprised
She's not with her half-Pakistani ex anymore so what is her excuse this time?
Tweet was just deleted.
ICYM: Bindi has a distinct cultural (and religious!) significance, its appropriation cannot be regarded the same as that of Henna Tattoos and Mehndi. So those excuses don't work. This ain't Coachella!
And men don't wear bindis.
How have people excused cultural appropriation around you, ONTD?
The Flash 2x19 "Back to Normal"& 2x20 "Rupture" synopses - spoilers!
The official synopses for both 2x19 (April 26th) and 2x20 (May 3rd) have been released, and within them contain plenty of spoilers.
You may recall a certain minor character being spotted on set many moons ago, known to be related to another main character, and it was uncertain what was going on as that character isn't normally in any kind of superhero/villain outfit. Definitively find out more below!
2x19 Back To Normal.
"A meta-human with super strength named Griffin Grey mistakes Harry for Earth-1 Harrison Wells and kidnaps him, demanding that Wells cure him from his current condition. Realizing another brilliant Wells could help track Griffin’s location, Barry asks Jesse to help. Meanwhile, Wally corners Joe about The Flash."
-Return of Violett Beane as Jesse Wells
-Wally finally starts getting mad suspicious
"Zoom arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry and Wells come up with a plan to stop Zoom once and for all but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Henry is adamantly opposed to Barry risking his life again but Joe thinks he can handle it which puts the two men at odds with each other. Meanwhile, Cisco is shocked when he vibes the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who happens to be his brother Dante’s doppelganger. Rupture came to this Earth seeking justice for Reverb’s death. Iris decides she’s finally ready to open up to Barry about her feelings for him."
-ZOOM IS BACK and being a bother. Does he still want someone to BRING HIM WELLS? Will he write the team burning fire messages on any buildings? Will he keep the Central City leafleting industry afloat? Only time will tell.
-Return of Henry Allen! (sounds risky putting both dads at odds considering the topic of one of the last posts....)
-RUPTURE IS E2 RUPTURE AND DANTE!
-Some WestAllen developments!
Zoom Info: What's on Teddy Sears' mind, and when will we know about The Man In The Iron Mask?
You've all been wondering when
Leonardo DiCaprio the MITK will be revealed - well according to Teddy we will have to wait until the final episode of the season to find out more about him!
He now knows who it is, and promises that it will be "quite satisfying" when revealed.
However. In an interview since rewritten and re-reported in an acceptable source, Teddy also dropped some information about how Zoom/Hunter Zolomon viewed the STAR Labs Team, but particularly about his relationship with Caitlin... pretty much confirming in a roundabout way some information also beneath this cut...
By saying that Zoom/Hunter Zolomon was playing the team all along and that he really did love Caitlin or some other sociopathic nonsense, Teddy is all but confirming that the man we thought of as Jay who was hanging with the team the entire time WAS IN FACT ZOOM!!
"That's something that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg from the beginning wanted to hammer into me. While there were games being played on all the other members of S.T.A.R Labs, what he felt for Caitlin was the real deal. That adds a really interesting dynamic to this moving forward. He essentially is one gigantic liar who has played them all, but he never played her. There are real feelings there."
Teddy went on to say: "There's even an under-layer based on where he came from in his life - his origin story - that plays a big part in why he wants her, why he needs her, why he loves her."
-Also some speculation that Zoom and E2 Killer Frost may have at some point had a thing.
Yes, it really does beg the question - what does Caitlin Snow have to do to catch a break? Maybe she should just concentrate on being single for a while.
An attractive yet non-threatening racially diverse cast of a CW show - doing stuff.
Please find below the Flash social media round-up, Hiatus Edition! What have the cast been up to since the show last graced our presence, 84 years in the distant annals of history?
This past few days signalled the END OF FILMING on season 2. I repeat, season 2 is in the can!
Now let's look at people being qt. ❤️

She will play the mother of a boy living in Minnesota circa 1977.
The movie will be based on the book 'Wonderstruck' by Brian Selznick. It tells the story of a boy named Ben who longs for the father he has never known. And a girl named Rose who dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother's room, and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing. The two stories weave back and forth before ultimately coming together.
Julianne Moore apparently will play the actress.
Drags his new documentary where Chris claimed he wanted to commit suicide after Rihanna assault
Chris has also been called out for being a hypocrite as he recently posted a gross tweet following Kehlani's suicide attempt:
There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing shit for sympathy so them comments under your pics don't look so bad— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) March 30, 2016
Marvel's nearly flawless new movie, Captain America: Civil War, has not only earned great reviews. It's projected to make $175-180 opening weekend at the box office.
It also introduces T'Challa, the Black Panther. According to Kevin Feige, mastermind of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, T'Challa adds an "undecided voter" element to Civil War. Feige says T'Challa is not invested in either side but chooses his stance based on personal reasons.
ONTD, why are people #TeamIronMan?
Naomi Watts will play therapist Jean Holloway, who develops improper and dangerous relationships with people in her patients' lives.

Did you like the political ads better or the season four debate?
....but there's a twist! It's only the cast and for a Vulture panel.
- The entire cast of Happy Endings (Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Casey Wilson, Adam Pally, and Damon Wayans Jr.) and original creators David Caspe and Jonathan Groff are reuniting for a panel at Vulture's Festival.
- The reunion will be on May 22.
Hopefully they can announce something like a Netflix/Hulu season or a VoD movie, or something... It's amazing that the show is still so talked about years after it's cancelation.
-the writers have an ending for the entire series already planned, and ideally would like 4 seasons
-Josh and Rebecca's relationship is forever changed
-already working on season 2
-Rachel considers Darryl the most sympathetic character
-wants to do a Europop number next season
-Vincent Rodriguez has suggested they do kpop and michael buble-esque songs
We have known that this season would end this way for two and a half years. #CrazyExGirlfriend— Rachel Bloom (@Racheldoesstuff) April 19, 2016
source. source. source.
so what did you guys think of the first season?
this is just an excuse to talk about the finale
Appeared in this Snapchat together:
-"They keep things low-key when they're in public, but in private they're very much together and affectionate," says the source. "He's really into her."
-Stayed with her friends the first night but then with Clarkson for the rest of the weekend (so I guess on Saturday, bc she left for Paris on Sunday)
-If she was seeing Harry, she would not have been with Jordan at Coachella.
-Ken Baker of Kardashian! News said that Kendall and Harry were seeing each other again, but they were probably just hanging out because sometimes people just hangout.
did anyone catch the coachella webcast? who were your favs
My final word on all the White-Washing Ghost In The Shell Broken System stuff:https://t.co/rOMbqLk6WS— Max Landis (@Uptomyknees) April 19, 2016
-Max wants to make it clear he knows the system is fucked up
-Industry is afraid of change and risk
-Tries to come off as woke
-Still makes films starring mostly white people
-Passive aggressively calls me out :)
-Jared Leto sent anal beads and used condoms to some of his Suicide Squad cast members.
-She told E! News:“I did not receive any personally or else I would have got my husband who was called the headache ball back in the day when he played football,” Davis said at last night’s premiere of her new indie Custody at the Tribeca Film Festival.“I would have said, ‘Take care of The Joker.”
Olivia Munn posted a qt pic of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and friend Chris Pratt on her instagram!
ONTD, are you excited for football in 5 months? What about Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Do you like your team's schedule for next season?
