Bruce Lee documentary to air Sunday
Bruce Lee didn't get the most favorable of portrayal in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood." (Brad Pitt threw him against a car.) But no such criticism will be leveled at Bao Nguyen's " Be Water," an affectionate bio-documentary about the kung-fu legend. The film, which details the movie star's tragically short career, captures the cool power of Lee, an early Asian American big-screen hero. It airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT on ESPN as part of the network's "30 for 30" documentary series.
Swift to Trump: 'We will vote you out in November'
(The Washington Post)
This week, celebrities from Cardi B to Kim Kardashian used their massive social media platforms to condemn the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died after a police officer knelt on his neck. And after a chaotic night of protests and a tweet from President Donald Trump that Twitter hid for "glorifying violence" (calling protesters "THUGS" and adding, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts"), another celebrity spoke up with a harsh message — and it wasn't who anyone might have expected.
"After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? 'When the looting starts the shooting starts'???" Taylor Swift tweeted to her 86 million followers Friday morning, tagging Trump's Twitter handle. "We will vote you out in November."
Immediately, the shocked social media reactions started pouring in, as it was retweeted more than 100,000 times in an hour. In the past, Swift — the fifth most-followed person on Twitter - was harshly criticized for staying silent about anything political or topical, particularly during the 2016 election. ("Who did Taylor Swift vote for?" was a top Google search at the time.)
Coroner: Drugs killed 'Twilight' actor, girlfriend
Drug use killed an actor from the film "Twilight" and his girlfriend, the coroner in Las Vegas said Monday.
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said Gregory Boyce, 30, and Natalie Adepoju, 27, died from the effects of cocaine and fentanyl intoxication, and their deaths were accidental.
The bodies were discovered May 13 after Las Vegas police were summoned to a bedroom in a condominium several miles east of the Las Vegas Strip. Officers reported finding a white powder on the dresser and no evidence of foul play.
Fentanyl has been blamed for illegal-use drug overdose deaths nationwide.
Boyce appeared as Tyler Crowley in "Twilight," the 2008 film starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
