NFL& More Major Companies Are With Disney/ Marvel In Taking A Stand Against Georgia’s Anti-Gay Legislation!14 days ago
Never underestimate the power of Hollywood … and the NFL !
As we reported earlier, Disney and Marvel Studios are threatening to cease filming in Georgia if an anti-gay bill get signed into statute by Governor Nathan Deal , and The Walking Dead network AMC had some strong words for them as well!
The bill in question, titled the Free Exercise Protection Act , allows discrimination against the LGBT community in a variety of hurtful and damaging ways.
Essentially, businesses and other entities can refuse service to an LGBT identifying person simply because it interferes with their religious beliefs. Translation — people could get fired or denied basic rights over their sexual orientation which is NOT GOOD.
Considering the hateful nature of the bill, the NFL , Time Warner Cable , Comcast , Lionsgate Films , 21 st Century Fox , CBS, the Weinstein Company, and Sony have joined the movement to stop the legislation.
While all names are big, the NFL is a HUGE step in the right direction considering the organization has had issues with LGBT adoption in the pastand let’s face it — super heteronormative. Either way, it’s good to know that Roger Goodell , is sticking up for his openly gay brother.
Check out a few supportive statements from the pro-LGBT companies( below )!
Time Warner 😛 TAGEND
“At Time Warner, diversity in all its forms is core to our value system and to the success of our business. We strongly oppose the discriminatory speech and intent of Georgia’s pending religion autonomy bill, which clearly violates the values and following principles inclusion and the capacities of all people to live and work free from discrimination. All of our divisions HBO, Warner Bros. and Turner have business interests in Georgia but none more than Turner, an active participant in the Georgia Prospers campaign, a coalition of business leaders committed to a Georgia that welcomes all people. Georgia bill HB 757 is in contradiction to this campaign, to the values we hold dear, and to the type of workplace we assure to our employees. We recommend Governor Deal to exert his veto.”
CBS 😛 TAGEND
“CBS Corporation is committed to an environment that values diversity and inclusion throughout the company and in all our business practices. The discriminatory speech in Georgia’s proposed religious autonomy bill conflicts with these core ethics and values. We call on Governor Deal to exercise his veto power.”
NFL 😛 TAGEND
“NFL policies underscore tolerance and inclusiveness, and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sex orientation, or any other improper standard. Whether the laws and regulations of a state and local community are consistent with these policies would be one of many factors NFL owners may use to evaluate potential Super Bowl host sites.”
The Weinstein Co .:
“The Weinstein Co. will not stand behind sanctioning the discrimination of LGBT people or any American. We have schemes in place to begin filming Lee Daniels’ new cinema in Georgia afterward this year but will move the production if this unlawful bill is legislated. We hope Governor Deal will veto bill HB 757 and not permit sanctioned bigotry to become law in Georgia.”
Sony 😛 TAGEND
“Georgia Bill HB 757 is anathema to our studio and to all those who value diversity and inclusion. We strongly urge Governor Deal to exert his veto.”
Wow! What powerful and important statements!

Chad Johnson Opens Up About Becoming The ‘Bad Guy’ On The Bachelorette Just Six Months After His Mother’s Death In Rare Emotional Interview25 days ago
We all know Chad Johnson as the “villain” of JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette and season three of Bachelor In Paradise.
As was briefly mentioned during the course of its reveal, the former Marine from Tulsa, Oklahoma lost his mama to cancer simply six months before his first appearance on the ABC series.
During yet another stint on reality Tv, the controversial starring opened up to Famously Single’s therapist Dr. Darcy Sterling about how becoming the “bad boy” was a distraction from properly handling his mother’s death.
“I don’t like letting new people in that easy because I don’t want to lose someone again like that. I know that’s my mother and she was sick, but I feel like a lot of people take too many chances of being too open too easily and I don’t genuinely do that … I sometimes tend to back away or in some manner, sabotage it because I believe I’m afraid of hurting them because what happens if we got married and then we had to break up? “
That’s some heavy stuff!
Watch his full emotional interview in the clip( below )!
You can catch Famously Single Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on E !.

This Former British MP Apologizes For Voting Against Same-Sex Marriage!1 month, 7 days ago
We love a good heartfelt apology!
This one is from a former British MP( is part of Parliament) named Sir John Randall who has issued an apology for voting against same-sex wedding back in 2013.
At the time, Randall told his children that he was voting against same-sex matrimony because heterosexual couples could not enter into civil partnerships, and that since he was a teller( a person who counts the votes but whose own election is usually not counted ), then his vote wouldn’t really affect anything.
The apology comes after Buzzfeed News emailed every MP who voted against same-sex wedding to ask them if they had changed their intellects in the years since.
Randall was the only one to issue a well thought-out and plainly genuine letter conveying his regrets.
“There are not many things that I regret about my hour as an MP but almost as soon as I voted against same sex marriage I knew I had made a mistake. Of course I recognised that it was going to go pass anyway so my vote was not critical and I was hesitating. I excused myself with my children with the excuse that I would have voted for it had civil partnerships been allowed for heterosexuaI couples and I still think that should be actively considered but in the end as a Government Whip I was a teller and therefore technically didn’t vote one way or the other. That was not courageous. I think I was just not ready for this step, conflicted between many of my age group and those of the younger generation whose views I wanted to understand. Ultimately I think I knew that I was going to be on the wrong side as those who wanted to me to vote for were some of the nicest people I came across, something that couldn’t be said about those opposing. With hindsight I wish I had spoken to a very good friend and colleague before the vote. He might easily have been expected to oppose the move to same sex wedding but he said to me that it was something that wouldn’t affect him at all but would dedicate great happiness to many people. That is an debate that I find it difficult to find fault with. So three years on I can frankly tell, I was wrong and I am sorry not to have been able to see it at the time.”
We wish more people were willing to admit to their mistakes like this!
Two other MPs, Sir Simon Burns and Andrew Griffiths, also said they had changed their minds.
Unfortunately, however, there were still many who held steadfastly to their beliefs that gay wedding should not be allowed, including David Davies, Stephen Timms, Sammy Wilson, and Sir Roger Gale.
Still, it’s good to see some people like John Randall eventually understand the errors of their ways.

Grubhub’s Stock Drops After Its CEO Pens A Company Wide Memo Denouncing Employees Who Support President-Elect Donald Trump!1 month, 11 days ago
Following Donald Trump ‘s scary presidential win , Hillary Clinton advocates have dealt with the news in various ways. From protests to silent indicates of solidarity, we’ve all dealt with the blow in different ways.
Now it looks like Grubhub CEO Matt Maloney is setting a new anti-Drumpf precedent by telling his employees to resign if they support the President-elect’s views.
In the company wide memoranda, Matt expresses abhorrence at Donald’s racist and intolerant positions while advising his employees to QUIT if they also agree with his “rhetoric”. According to Maloney, he believes “hateful attitudes” do NOT belong at Grubhub.
“I’m still trying to reconcile my own worldview with the overwhelming message that was delivered last night. Clearly there are a lot of people angry and scared as the antithesis of every modern presidential candidate won and will be our next chairman. While demeaning, insulting and ridiculing minorities, immigrants and the physically/ mentally disabled worked for Mr. Trump, I want to be clear that this behavior – and these views, have no place at Grubhub. Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination. We have worked for years cultivating a culture of support and inclusiveness. I securely believe that we must bring together different perspectives to continue innovating – including all genders, races, ethnicities and sexual, cultural or ideological predilections. We are better, faster and stronger together. Further I utterly reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and is endeavouring to shield our community from this movement as best as I can. As we all try to understand what this election means to us, I want to affirm to anyone on our squad that is scared or feelings personally uncovered, that I and everybody else here at Grubhub will fight for your dignity and your right to make a better life for yourself and your family here in the United States. If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your abdication because you have no place here. We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team.I want to repeat what Hillary said this morning, that the new administration deserves our open intellects and a chance to lead, but never stop believing that the fight for what’s right is worth it. Stay strong, Matt.”
Following the spirited message, many fans of the food delivery service took to social media to denounce Matt and his terms. Subsequently, GrubHub’s stock also took a hit.
In response to all the angry consumers, the businessman subsequently clarified his terms were misunderstood, writing 😛 TAGEND
“I want to clarify that I did not ask for anyone to resign if they voted for Trump. I would never make such a demand. To the contrary, the message of the email is that we do not tolerate discriminatory activity or hateful commentary in the workplace, and that we will stand up for our employees.”
Well, that induces sense. It’s pretty obvious the CEO simply meant to assure his employees that diversity is ACCEPTED and encouraged … an admirable sentiment considering Donald has been threatening to multiple groups.
Matt also went to release this following statement on the company’s website 😛 TAGEND
“This year’s general elections was undoubtedly divisive and left many of our employees feeling concerned. In response, I wrote a company-wide email that sought to proponent for inclusion and tolerance — regardless of political affiliation — during this period of transition for our country. Some of the statements in my email( please see full text below) have been misunderstood. I want to clarify that I did not ask for anyone to resign if they voted for Trump. I would never make such a demand. To the contrary, the message of the email is that we do not tolerate discriminatory activity or hateful commentary in the workplace, and that we will stand up for our employees. Grubhub greets and accepts employees with all political beliefs , no matter whom they voted for in this or any election. We do not discriminate on the basis of someone’s principles, or political or other beliefs. I deeply respect the right of all citizens to vote for the candidate of their choice. In fact, I offered extra flexible on Tuesday and encouraged all our employees to go vote. There is a place for all points of view at Grubhub. We value diverse perspectives and believe those perspectives help to create a better product and a better workplace culture. Grubhub’s leadership team has worked for years to create a culture of support and inclusiveness. I securely believe that we must bring together different perspectives to continue innovating. We are better, faster and stronger together, and so is America.”
So, will YOU be ordering Grubhub following this controversy?

Can Someone Please Help Ryan Lochte Figure Out How Old His Dog REALLY Is?1 month, 23 days ago
Somewhere out there Ryan Lochte is screaming into a brew as Forever Young plays on loop.
On Sunday, Ryan induced headlines again after he wished his puppy Carter Lochte a happy 8th birthday. While the gesture itself isn’t a big deal, it soon became a narrative after some internet sleuths realise the swimmer had wished Carter a happy 8th birthday two times before.
Ha! Either R.L. isn’t too great at math or he’s floating down a river we like to call DENIAL.
What’s funny is, this ridiculous mixup comes on the heels of the swimmer’s Rio robbery controversy. You think the athlete would triple-check his facts after his web of lies fell apart in August!
Check out Ry’s hilarious b-day messages to his time-traveling Benjamin Button dog( below )!
2014 😛 TAGEND
2015 😛 TAGEND
2016 😛 TAGEND
Wow … the gags merely write themselves.
Following the gaffe, Ryan deleted the 2016 tweet and replaced it with an updated message which read 😛 TAGEND
Inneresting . We wonder if this is ACTUALLY the dog’s age … we don’t know what to believe anymore!
8th 9th b-day, Carter!

Too funny, Hugh. But we’re here for the facial hair!
