An investigation by Netflix found no evidence of wrongdoing on the set of “Stranger Things” after a crew member alleged on social media that “two men in high positions of power” — presumably the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers — sought out and verbally abused female staff members.
“We looked into the concern that was raised when we heard of the allegation on Thursday,” a Netflix spokesperson said in an emailed statement on Saturday, “and found no wrongdoing.”
The allegations, which were posted to Instagram by Peyton Brown, who has worked as a grip on the show, presumably referred to Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer. The accusations were first reported by Deadline.
An episode of ABC’s “black-ish” was yanked from this season’s lineup after the show’s creator, Kenya Barris, and the network were unable to come to an agreement over how the episode handled certain social issues.
“Given our creative differences, neither ABC nor I were happy with the direction of the episode and mutually agreed not to air it,” Barris said in a statement.
An ABC representative echoed that sentiment: “One of the things that has always made ‘black-ish’ so special is how it deftly examines delicate social issues in a way that simultaneously entertains and educates. However, on this episode, there were creative differences we were unable to resolve.”
I set off on a path 20 years ago to do this, knowing the likely outcome was failure, or at least a middling existence. Anybody who tells you they deserve anything in this career is delusional. I wake up every day and wonder, 'What did I do in a past life to have all this craziness happen to me?'
Rapper-businessman Rick Ross has finally addressed a health scare that landed him in the hospital last week.
“Ain’t nothing like home,” he wrote Thursday on Instagram, posting a photo of himself with one hand against a concrete block wall and the other wrapped around a bottle of a rosé Champagne that he promotes.
“I love y’all,” he said, including a praying-hands emoji and signing it “WLR,” the initials for his given name, William Leonard Roberts II.
I really just like characters who you don't know where they stand for a long while. It's like people. You hang out with them for 10 years, and then all of a sudden they do something and you say, 'Who are you?' That's more interesting, in life and on-screen.
O.J. Simpson pauses from describing the moments before his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were murdered. He shakes his head and looks away from the camera, bringing a hand up to his forehead.
“I really can’t do more of this,” he says, repeatedly, as he approaches the more gruesome details of what happened that night.
Simpson was speaking to Judith Regan in a 2006 interview that Fox said was “lost” on the network’s lot and will be the subject of a Fox special, “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?” During the discussion, Simpson gives what the network describes as a “hypothetical account” and “disturbing” details about the night of the slayings.
