Netflix Begs People To Stop Bird-Box Challenge

Like most world-wide hits, Bird Box has gotten fans gripped to it. The psychological thriller winds down a terrifying, yet exhilarating tunnel of events. With crowd favorite Sandra Bullock playing the lead role, the movie showcases the journey of Malorie. The movie centers around a mother’s fight for the survival of her children over her own. With the post-apocalyptic scenario being one involving invisible mind-control-and-destroy-upon-eye-contact monsters, the protagonists of the movie traverse life blindfolded.

People have obviously gone berserk with the thrill and created a ‘Bird Box’ challenge now. This challenge requires participants to live a day in their life, blindfolded. In-fact, adrenaline junkies have seized the opportunity and stormed the internet with some crazy stuff they did while being blindfolded.

People are now taking up 24-48 hours Bird-Box challenges. We can only imagine the rush it might increase in the ER. Going about blindfolded in a busy city for a whopping 24 hours is definitely no joke.

Netflix Begs People To Stop

PC: Twitter/Netflix

Regular folks driving, taking the subway, crossing the street or cooking – all this while being blindfolded, has gotten Netflix deeply worried. In light of the Bird-Box challenge fever, Netflix took to twitter to plead with the masses.
They wrote; “PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE.” they added, “we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes.”

After watching some of the Bird-Box challenge videos, we understood why Netflix is pleading people to stop ASAP!

The Mania That The Challenge Is

Speaking of dangerous, one voluntarily blindfolded man walked on full speed and fell down a subway entrance’s steep staircase. He didn’t seem like he was moving much after it.

Ouch!

Another twitter user went ahead and blindfolded his dog! The poor puppy bumped into some walls (while looking absolutely adorable doing it) before finding its treat. Guys, can we please let leave animals out of this?!

Some Are Not Impressed

However, the visually impaired feel this is a mark of ignorance and disrespect. Taking to twitter, the National Federation of the Blind said,

They’re going to get the wrong idea about blind people, and what blindness is actually like.

National Federation Of the Blind

All said and done, it doesn’t seem like the challenge is stopping anytime soon. Moving on from being blindfolded for 24 hours, people have now started a new challenge. There are some who are taking up ‘Watch Bird Box Blindfolded’ challenge. Well, at least it’s safer than wandering the streets blindfolded.

via GIPHY

Keeping in mind the safety of all out there, we hope no one hurts themselves real bad doing the Bird Box challenge. Hopefully, there’ll soon be a studio for ones who want to experience ‘Bird Box’. At least it will be safe to move around blindfolded in the comfort of a room. Till then, be safe peeps!

Kanye West Gets Shutdown By Snoop Dogg

2018 was a bizarre year for a lot of people. And sure one for the celebs too. The unexpected turn of events don’t seem to end any time soon. Star rapper Kanye West has recently been posting appreciative messages for people around him on his social media. The world has obviously, been taken by surprise.

So much so that, they haven’t found out a way to respond to Kanye’s tweets and posts. On of the recent posts done by Kanye West was for Snoop Dogg, whom he called his ‘Elder’. While most of us would have felt honoured by this gesture, Snoop Dogg felt otherwise. Here’s a tweet that Kanye posted on the micro-blogging site.

Snoop’s reaction

Snoop Dogg though, clearly wasn’t impressed by this gesture of Kanye’s. He took to Instagram to hurl some choice words at Kanye. He even advised Ye to pick up the phone and directly confront ‘the fella’, instead of broadcasting his feud online. If you listen carefully, you can hear Drake’s song playing in the background at the beginning of the video.

Trouble with Trump?

Snoop Dogg has always been in the news for one controversy or another. He has also been extremely vocal with his opinion on the current POTUS, Donald Trump. As we can see from many of his posts on social media, Snoop Dogg sincerely wants nothing to do with the President. With opinions as strong as his, Kanye was sure to come under fire for supporting Trump. Could Snoop be pissed at Ye for his political loyalties? Or is he trying to sort things out as an ‘Elder’? Well, we can only guess.

Ye’s mental health issues

Kanye’s been in the news lately for his mental health issues, and was recently admitted to a mental health facility for a nervous breakdown. In the midst of all this, he made his feud with Drake pretty visible, when he quoted a tweet from Arianna Grande.

The beef with Drake

With Kanye West advocating awareness for mental health, Drake was not let off easily when apparently, he verbally attacked Kanye. Here is what Ye had to say about what happened

Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian West

People will no longer take mental health for a joke. Drake verbally attacked Cudi when he was in the hospital and went at me after TMZ because I decided to release albums in June Is snowballed and he refused to meet with me but texted my mother in law and did sneak disses on peoples records that I consider family [sic]
No one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful.

Kanye West

Ye also added:

I am able to experience first hand how people who have mental health issues get written off by society. Don’t listen to him cause he’s crazy. He’s washed cause he’s crazy etc…
I don’t blame people for not knowing how to handle this that said we as a society will learn together
It reminds me of when I said stop hip hop homophobia It used to be ok for rappers to bash gay people just listen to certain rap records from the 90s and early 2000s

It could all be just a small misunderstanding, or something of much deeper magnitude. We can only wait and see what happens. In the meantime, we hopefully wish for Kanye to get happy and well soon.

Fidel Castro’s Grandson Under Fire For His Luxurious Lifestyle

Legendary communist and former Prime minister and President of Cuba, the late Fidel Castro was as famous as they get. However, his family is rarely seen in public. Well, for good reason. Tony Castro, the grandson of the communist patriarch recently found himself to be at the center of a social media upheaval though.

Courtesy : Tony Castro, Instagram

Young Tony is an aspiring model and has often been seen travelling the world in unbeatable style. But unlike the lifestyle of many young celebrities who go unnoticed, the young man came in the line of fire for flaunting his lavish life and adventures.

Courtesy : Instagram

While many young stars are known to share their lavish lifestyle on social channels, Tony Castro was criticized due to the economic condition in his home country. The current economy of Cuba is at an all-time low. The Cuban people (and the rest of the world) had a lot to say about young Castro.

Pedro Pérez wrote on his Facebook page, “All the animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” This line is from George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm” that has been banned in Cuba.

Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro was one of the world’s most famous communism activists and political rulers. Born to a rich Spanish farmer, Fidel went on to complete his education in the University of Havana, where he imbibed and became a practitioner of ‘Anti-Imperialistic’ policies.

Fidel Castro

Fidel became popular for his anti-government movement where he overthrew the then President of Cuba, Fulgencio Batista. His mission succeeded with help from infamous comrades like Che Guevara and his own brother, Raul Castro. His name is thus, etched in golden letters as one of the pioneers of the Cuban Revolution.

Cuba’s Economic Condition

Cuba’s current economic condition is a matter of deep worry. According to Miami Herald, the average Cuban income is just a mere $30 per month. To add to the agony, basic food items such as bread, eggs and milk are scarce. The residents also receive rationed amounts of basic bread for supper.

Tony Castro

Tony Castro’s most notable appearance was in Chanel’s fashion show in 2016 alongside Havana’s famed, Prado Boulevard. However, he was not the one who walked the ramp. He enjoyed a premium seat next to the runway, reserved for VIPs, along with his cousin Mariela Castro. The party also included important Cuban officials and television personalities.

Meanwhile, it is apparent that Tony loves to travel, as most of his Instagram posts show. Now the world knows that he is rich and willing to spend for an envious lifestyle.

The Castro Family’s Secrecy

Tony’s father, Antonio Castro, was also seen vacationing near the coast of the Greek island, Mykonos in 2015. Aboard a luxury yacht, his lavish life caught the attention of media bugs. Reportedly, his bodyguards beat up a Turkish reporter who tried to take pictures of him. Looking back, it seems like his PR was possibly trying to prevent the media outrage that has surrounded Tony right now.

People have gone to the extent of question who’s paying Tony’s bills. If you think from the point of view of the residents, their anger kind of seems justified.

Tony Castro

While the captain of a sinking ship is the last to abandon it, people are getting the opposite treatment from the families of old Cuban heroes. Is their reaction a cry for help or just a desperate attempt at justice being meted out?

However, if you look at the bright side, Tony’s lifestyle has brought attention to the economic condition of Cuba. One does hope that it’s only a matter of time that the attention works out in their favor.
In the end, all we can say, is Viva La Vida Cuba.

Kevin Hart’s Bounceback After Twitter Hate Storm

With the Oscars just about round the corner, all the attention has centered around comedian and actor, Kevin Hart. The star has recently come under fire for his anti-gay comments way from back in 2010 and 2011.

via GIPHY

Speaking of why these tweets of his surfaced, the Jumanji star implied that it was most probably a hater group on Twitter, trying to ruin his career for good. He went on to mention that they calculated the time when he would be in the spotlight the most, i.e. The Academy Awards function, and dug out the bones from coffins buried long back.

Hart’s complications

The comedian had long back, posted quite a few tweets, making light of the gay community and in turn hurt sentiments of the LGBTQ+ community. Some of his tweets read like this:

Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.

Kevin Hart

via GIPHY

Apparently, Kevin had stepped down from playing host to the 2019 Academy Awards due to these tweets re-surfacing. It is said to have been his lifelong dream to host the award ceremony. Crisis management experts said that Hart should have done the right thing, as in, apologizing to the LGBTQ+ community instead of refusing to do so and abdicating his place as host.

Sources say, that Academy of Motion Picture Arts had given the comedian an ultimatum after his tweets re-surfaced. Demanding that he either apologize immediately for his words or step down from hosting the ceremony. Hart, publicly chose the latter, saying that he has moved on from his past.

via GIPHY

His refusal to send out an apology was perhaps best documented in this statement he gave in 2015. While speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine Hart said;

What you want to do is distinguish a comedian’s body of work vs something that sounds personal.

Kevin Hart

The reason behind his behaviour

Hart apparently was hesitant to issue an official apology because he felt that he had addressed these old tweets one too many times. He feels that he has explained the intent behind his tweets, and has also apologized many times.

YouTube

The comedian claims that this is a stunt that people are trying to pull off so that they can make money using his past mistakes. He has reportedly taken down his anti-gay tweets keeping this in mind.

Kevin Hart Apologizes: YouTube

Tables may have turned

Ellen, a popular talk show host, though, chose to step in and help him clear his slate. In an interview with Kevin, on her show, she said that she wanted him to host the Oscars.

The night will be about you and it should be about you , and you should host the Oscars, and I’m going to talk you into it.

Ellen DeGeneres

Kevin has now issued a public apology for his offensive tweets of old and has also stepped down from hosting the Oscars. He said that, he understood to not joke like his old self and he doesn’t do it anymore.

Also, turns out the Academy Awards board are still keen on having the comedian as their host. Whether Kevin will step in and take the place though, only time can tell.

Donald Trump & Ivanka’s Favourite Pass Time? Sex.

Before you start jumping to conclusions, yes it’s about Donald Trump. He’s given us a lot of room to speculate about a weird obsession with his daughter Ivanka. But no, this is not about him wanting her to (God forbid) have his babies. No, this is Donald Trump’s favorite way of being addressed by Ivanka. If the cringe isn’t quite dummed down by this either, it’s okay.

via GIPHY

Ivanka and her ‘daddy’

What made news this time is what the current President said at a tax reform in North Dakota.

She’s so good, she wanted to make the trip. She said, ‘dad can I go…’ She actually said, ‘daddy, can I go with you?’ I like that. I said yes you can.

Donald Trump

Well okay, it shouldn’t be something incestuous to call your father, ‘Daddy’. However, given Trump’s open declarations of attraction towards his daughter, we’re quite sure the world squirmed uneasily in its seat this time around.

Ivanka Trump

The President’s daughter Ivanka is a successful business woman, former model and fashion designer. She is currently advisor to POTUS on matters concerning education, and economic development. Happily married to Jared Kushner and the mother of three beautiful children, this head-turner is definitely one of the most widely admired women.

Trump’s disturbing comments

She is very close to her father and as graceful as one can be. Donald and Ivanka have appeared together on a number of talk shows and television series. While it is definitely a delight to have a father-daughter duo as close as them on set, quite a few of Trump’s remarks and comments have left the world wondering.

President Donald Trump with daughter Ivanka
President Donald Trump and Daughter, Ivanka

Like what columnist Richard Cohen quoted of Trump asking someone he knew, about a then 13 year old Ivanka, Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”

via GIPHY

Yeah, it appears, it isn’t the first instance this took place. Take a look.

Trump’s Incest Jokes: YouTube

Trump was seen praising his daughter’s figure on day-time television. Oops! Ivanka obviously was seen laughing awkwardly trying to brush past this one. He has also said that if he wasn’t Ivanka’s father and happily married, he would be dating her.
In another instance, The father daughter duo made an appearance on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’.

During the show, when asked about what the father-daughter duo have in common regarding their favorite pass time, Donald shocked the world with his reply. While Ivanka went on to say things like, Real Estate, Donald Trump allegedly said, “I was going to say sex, but I can’t relate that to her.”

via GIPHY

On comparing his mistresses to Ivanka

Karen McDougal, former mistress of current POTUS Donald Trump disclosed in an interview with CNN that she was compared to Ivanka.

He said I was beautiful like her and, you know, ‘you’re a smart girl’ and there wasn’t a lot of comparing but there was some, yeah. I heard a lot about her.

Karen McDougal

In fact, even Stormy Daniels, had revealed in an interview that Donald would often praise and liken her to his daughter Ivanka. She mentioned how much he was pleased with her and would often say that she reminded him of Ivanka.

Stormy Daniels

While most fathers would never dare bring up their child in comparison to an adult film star, Trump seems to have no qualms about it.

Donald Trump and Ivanka, 1988

Maybe this is why ‘daddy’ is cringe-worthy. In the Ivanka-Donald relationship? A logical point eh. Well, what’s best right now is probably to go carrying on about our lives, without overthinking it. Peace of mind is important now, isn’t it?

Dwayne Johnson Gets Paid $13 Million More Than Emily Blunt!

People’s favorite Dwanye Johnson, a.k.a ‘The Rock’, was reportedly paid much more than co-star Emily Blunt. The duo, play lead roles in Disney’s upcoming film, Jungle Cruise.

Despite both being in the lead role, Dwayne was paid a whopping $13 million more than Emily Blunt’s pay. While Johnson has been paid $22 million to portray Frank, Blunt has been paid $9 million to portray ‘Lily’ in the movie. Figuratively speaking, no one’s going to argue when being paid $9 million for a job. However, the difference in pay is undeniable.

via GIPHY

Why The Pay Gap ?

Dwayne Johnson is an unstoppable train when it comes to the box office. He is the second highest paid actor of 2018, standing at $1.5 billion. The highest paid actor of 2018 is his co-star from the Fast and Furious franchise, Vin Diesel who stands at $1.6 billion.

With back to back hits like the Fast and Furious series, Moana, and his infamous ‘Scorpion King’ it comes as no surprise that Johnson is paid handsomely for making an appearance, anywhere.

Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise

Jungle cruise co-star and Gloden Globes award winner, Emiy Blunt has wowed the world with her performance in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and the thriller ‘A Quiet Place’. Reportedly, her film Mary Poppins is estimated to gross a whopping $200 million according to Hollywood Reporter.

Common Occurrence?

While both actors are accomplished and talented in their own right, we guess the pay is decided by who brings in the most number of viewers. Given the worldwide fandom of ‘The Rock’, the producers must have believed this to be the right pay for him. However, the huge pay gap has sparked controversies and discussions regarding gender bias. Many are coming out to lash out at this outright display of pay difference among male and female co-stars in tinsel-town.

Oscar award winner Emma Stone recently discussed this in an interview.

Emma Stone

In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that’s something they do for me because they feel it is what’s right and fair.

Emma Stone

Pay Gap? Yes. Relationship Gap? No.

Despite the fact that a huge pay gap exists between the two, actors Dwayne and Emily were seen sharing a warm moment with the crew of Mary Poppins recently.

Taking to Instagram Johnson posted the picture of the gathering not forgetting to make light of himself in his caption, as usual.

Tonight we loved, laughed (hard) & celebrated with tequila 🥃 with fine wine🍷with the cast of MARY POPPINS RETURNS.

And of course, the woman of the hour who unfortunately has to put up with my spoonful of sugar and cheese all night long, Mary Poppins herself – Emily Blunty Blunt.
Love this crew. Good humans… all except the big, brown, bald tattooed fella.

It’s great to see that things like this don’t dampen relationships. As of now, we just look forward to better times for actors, in an ideally level playfield with fair pays. How fair are these pay gaps? Well, that’s another discussion altogether.

Brit Who Snorted Coke Over Escobar’s Grave Gets Death Threats

Pablo Escobar was one of the most iconic characters of Colombian history. While most looked at him with fear, the masses loved and treated him like God. Little did the 35-year old British man, Semmens know what would befall him for playing with the sentiments of the Colombians.

Pablo Escobar’s Grave, PC: The Patriot Ledger

In November 2017, Steven Semmens flew to Colombia with his girlfriend. Like most tourists and visitors to Colombia, Semmens decided to pay a visit to drug lord, Pablo Escobar’s grave. On his visit, he did something most of the locals would rather die than do. Semmens snorted cocaine off of Pablo’s grave!

via GIPHY

Yikes!.

Unfortunately, he decided to post the video of his act online. That is why, he got banned from residing in Colombia for five years While his girlfriend became pregnant with twins during his stay there, Semmens was forced to leave the country.

In an interview with The Mirror, Semmens had the following to say.

I was in a bar in Medellin when the news flashed up on the TV of me doing the ­cocaine. All the locals were going crazy so I joined in ­slagging off the guy on TV because I didn’t want them to know it was me.
I went home, shaved to change my appearance and went to the mountains outside Medellin to hide. As soon as I could, I went to Cartagena and hid. Then I went to the capital, Bogota, but the police found me. They gave me a paper with a five-year ban on and I was taken to the airport and told not to come back.

Semmens Justifies The Act

The Brit claims that he thought his act was a sign of respect to the drug lord. Pablo Escobar was single-handedly responsible for over 80 percent of the cocaine supplied to USA. He later, died a tragic death after being shot down by the police in 1993. However, his legacy still remains.

Unluckily for Semmens, the Colombians have not taken his act lightly. With terrifying death threats from criminal gangs hanging over his head, he is worried for his family’s safety. Semmens’ girlfriend and their two children could not join him in England due to visa complications.

Public Apology

A very apologetic Semmens commented,

My mate asked me to do a line off Escobar’s grave and it just went mad. It was funny at the time but I’m ashamed. Everybody said I was a disgrace and I was making the country look bad. The president even mentioned me on TV and the police were ­worried for my safety. It was really scary. I regret doing it so much. People sent me death threats on Facebook.
They said if they found me they would skin me alive. I can’t see my children and that hurts. If I wasn’t banned I would­ definitely have gone back to see my children. But I knew when I got on the plane I was lucky to be alive. I regret what I did so much and I want to apologise to the people of Colombia.

Steven Semmens

It looks like a long time before things get sorted for him. Hopefully, no one will ever dare to repeat the same mistake.

HBO Just Released Game Of Thrones 2019 Teaser!

Finally, we get to see Game Of Thrones grace our laptops and TV screens. HBO just released a sneak peek into the hit series. The clip is a short one but seems to say a lot. It gives us a major hint as to what to expect from G.O.T season 8 that is scheduled to release in 2019.

via GIPHY

The Teaser

Game of Thrones had left us hanging (from an ice wall literally), with a mindblowing ending to season 7. The plot was absolutely unpredictable.

*Spoiler Alert* If you haven’t watched G.O.T yet, don’t click the video below.

Game of Thrones S7

With the ‘Nightwalker’ King now marching into human territory with a ‘Nightwalker’ Dragon (*gasp*), the world has been desperately waiting to see what the next season will bring.

Apparently, HBO chose a novel time to release its promo. During the Golden Globes 76th annual awards, the hit channel aired its commercial – featuring all the shows that will be on screen this spring.

The brief clip showing Sansa and Daenerys meet was quite the tell-tale. As usual, fans went into frenzy as soon as the teaser hit their screens.

The Meeting Of The Titans

The clip showed a very smug looking Daenerys walk over to Sansa. The Lady of The North assessed the Dragon Queen before accepting her as ‘The Queen’. However, a lot has been said about whether this acceptance was genuine or not. Giving rise to speculation were the expressions on Sansa’s face that people just couldn’t help but read into.

Also Read: Game of Thrones Behind The Scenes Content

Stark’s sister and assassin, Arya was seen standing beside Sansa as she bowed her head and declared, “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace”. Jon Snow on the other hand was seen flashing a worried look (probably a pleading one?). Was he worried about his sister’s acceptance of his and Daenerys’ relationship?

Game Of Thrones nerds claim that the clip predicted trouble in the Stark family over Daenerys’ claim to the throne and Jon’s romantic involvement with her. Fans were also eager to make an interesting connection. Sansa was now in the same place that Ned Stark was in, when King Robert Baratheon arrived at Winterfell.

Game Of Thrones

People have even read into Sansa Stark’s tone of voice compared to her father Ned. Some say this speaks of trouble. But hey, Game Of Thrones wouldn’t be the same without fights and struggle right?!

via GIPHY

Conspiracy Theories Galore

Jon Snow ( Kit Harrington) was seen standing between the two queens, who were facing each other. Fans believe that his worried look could also possibly hint at a discord over his decision to bend the knee.

The fleeting clip was very suggestive and spoke a lot about what is to come in Game Of Throne Season 8. One of the many things we are sure to witness would be the unravelling of Jon’s true identity and him making the difficult choice of choosing between his Targaryen bloodline and his adoptive family.

Game of Thrones Season 8 is slated for release in April 2019. HBO has confirmed that the season will be short in comparison to the previous seasons. Short, but one that will be hard to forget. HBO CEO was quoted saying that Season 8, feels like 6 movies!

via GIPHY

With each episode being a confirmed 90 minutes long, we doubt fans could ask for anything more than this.
