This Week in Questionable Decisions…
1. Scarlett Johansson, who was criticized for portraying an Asian character in the film Ghost in the Shell, is facing more backlash after being cast as a transgender man in mob movie Rub & Tug.
2. An Ontario man listed a 6-year-old McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries on eBay for $29.99. We’ve all seen photos of old fast food that never rots as a sort of warning of what the junk can do to our bodies. In 2012, Dave Alexander conducted a similar experiment and thought someone would be interested in purchasing the results. eBay disagreed, removing the listing because food items can’t be sold on the site without an expiration date.
3. Amber Heard warned folks on Twitter of ICE Checkpoints in Hollywood, saying, “Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies, and landscapers a ride home tonight...” Oof.
4. Back before Pete Davidson was engaged to Ariana Grande and the two were spewing TMI about each other’s privates, Pete made a joke about the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and how Ariana got more famous from it because the attack took place during her concert.
5. Speaking of Pete and Ariana (What is their celebrity coupling name, anyway? PeRiana? GranDavidson?), they can go ahead and move right over because a new young Hollywood romance has blossomed into an engagement just one month into the relationship: Justin Bieber reportedly proposed to Hailey Baldwin in the Bahamas this weekend.
6. A 19-year-old who was kicked out of the historic Stonewall Inn in New York returned in the middle of the night to bash in the window and neon sign of the gay rights landmark.
7. What dreams are made of: Jessica Simpson allegedly spent $100,000 on Postmates food delivery in one month.
8. DJ Khaled cancelled a U.K. concert due to “travel problems” but was seen all over social media posting about being on vacation. Busted!
9. Video of Meghan Markle meeting fans reveals what appears to be the Duchess of Sussex using a vaguely British faux accent.
