“The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified [Meghan] almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense.” pic.twitter.com/ttP7WvHYIV

-House Sussex is suing the Daily Mail over their terrible coverage of Prince Harry and (especially) Megan Markle and is paying for the lawsuit themselves. If they win in court, proceeds from the lawsuit will be donated to anti-bullying charities. Perfect timing, as the couple is currently on tour. Prince Harry penned a blistering letter about the lawsuit, saying “I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”
–Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s wedding ceremony in South Carolina last night had a photo booth — which means there are tons of pics on IG.
-So Felicity Huffman got a super sympathetic People cover? Huh.
-Supermodel GiGi Hadid was NOT having it when a YouTube prankster got up on the runway at the Chanel fashion show in Paris.
-There’s a shady report about Adele dating grime musician Skepta and I’m kinda here for it?
–Angelina Jolie took her large fam to her movie premiere. They’re soo grown up!
-The press tour for Joker continues to disintegrate before our eyes. Todd Phillips seems to think SJWs are trying to ruin comedy: “Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture. There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘Fuck this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter. You just can’t do it, right? So you just go, ‘I’m out.'” As gross as this is, it seems tailor-made to resonate with the type of dudes they keep insisting this film isn’t courting.
-I am very much looking forward to Amazon’s limited series Modern Love, and glowing reviews like this are only helping its case.
–Selena Gomez wrote a powerful essay on the immigration crisis for Time magazine. “I don’t claim to be an expert. I’m not a politician, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t work in the system at all. I understand it’s flawed and that we need rules and regulations, but we also have to remember that our country was formed by people who came here from other countries. It’s time to listen to the people whose lives are being directly affected by immigration policies.”
-Here’s the 6 Underground trailer, starring Ryan Reynolds and Melanie Laurent and directed by (ugh) Michael Bay.
