  • Selena Gomez Has a Message for Those Fat-Shaming Critics

    Rack your brain for celebrities the media and Internet trolls are most likely to body shame. Young actress turned singer Selena Gomez probably didn’t come to mind. Some pointed out how much the star has changed since her days on the Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place back in 2007 (she was 15 at the time). Others speculated as to whether the alleged weight gain had something to do with her breakup with Justin Bieber last year.

  • See Chrissy Teigen Flawlessly Shut Down a Racist on Twitter

    Photo: Instagram @chrissyteigen One of the grossest things about racism is that it can affect literally anyone and everyone. Even stunning and hilarious Sports Illustrated swimsuit models with Grammy and Oscar-winning husbands. The always vocal Chrissy Teigen was apparently taking a nice little stroll in Santa Monica on Thursday when she randomly encountered a racist bigot with some strange ideas about stereotypes. Naturally, she took to her Twitter account (follower count: 710K) to social media-shame the unfortunately anonymous man: Actually, we hope someone saw the guy, made lots of awkward eye contact, and either A) pulled out an issue ofSI and flipped straight to Teigen’s spread, B) took out his/her smartphone and showed him her tweets, or C) gave him a swift kick to the crotch.

  • McVeigh defense archive shows bomber viewed blast as failure

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Timothy McVeigh considered the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building 20 years ago somewhat of a failure, viewed himself as a "Paul Revere-type messenger" and even suggested his defense team should receive $800,000 from the government, according an archive of documents donated by the convicted bomber's lead attorney.

  • One chart sums up the real problem in the California drought — and it isn't almonds

    You might've heard that if there's one food you shouldn't be buying in the middle of California's drought, it's almonds. Compared with many other nuts and veggies, almonds seem particularly wasteful, requiring a whole gallon of water per nut. In California, the largest milk-producing state in the US, the vast majority of these animals are cows. By comparison, just about 23 gallons are needed for an ounce of almonds (about 23 nuts), the Los Angeles Times reported recently.

  • Man who saved Miami officer: “How could I not?”

    William Ramirez was driving to his boat-maintenance job Tuesday morning when he spotted a chilling sight on Northwest 79th Street: A Miami police officer was on the ground, trying to take cover as a man fired at him with a high-powered assault rifle. Thinking fast, Ramirez swerved his Dodge Caravan between the officer and the shooter, shielding the rookie officer. Then he opened the side door, pulled officer Rosny Obas to safety and sped off. The lesson from his heroic effort during a chaotic shootout on Miami’s streets: The best way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a van.

  • Source: ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Provoked by Towing Company Employee

    There's two sides to every story... and while ESPN's Britt McHenry might not be able to talk about her now viral Easter Sunday towing experience thanks to a week-long suspension, another source is speaking up. McHenry was suspended for a week after surveillance video of her berating a towing company employee went public, but a source tells ET that the women in the video also provoked the Washington D.C.-based sports reporter during the April 5 incident. In the video, McHenry is seen making comments about the woman's weight and other employees' lack of education. "Do you feel good about your job?" she asks at one point. "So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing? Why, 'cause I have a brain and you don't?" PHOTOS: 8 Celeb Feuds That Just Won't Die However, according to a source, the Advanced Towing employee was "rude, dismissive and taunting," and the tape released is "highly edited" to show only McHenry in an unflattering light. For example, her dig to "lose some weight, baby girl" was allegedly a response to the employee telling her to "fix your roots." McHenry did tweet about the incident on April 6, writing in a now-deleted post, "Just got towed after eating dinner at an establishment in Arlington. How corrupt is Advanced Towing?" Advanced Towing Company, LLC currently has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau and there have been 40 complaints to the BBB about the company in the last three years. The company also made negative headlines earlier this month, when an Arlington father said his car -- with his two children inside -- were nearly towed away during a recent trip to a local CVS when an Advanced Towing driver didn't see the children initially. Still, the source says McHenry suggested that she go back to Arlington and offer an apology directly to the employee, Gina Michelle, on April 7, but was advised not to by ESPN, as it be better to not engage. The source also claims Advance Towing has been "shopping the tape around," and even approached ESPN before the video went viral. The towing company responded to that clam in a statement released to ET: Parking enforcement is contentious by nature. At the same time, neither Gina, our lot clerk, nor our company, have any interest in seeing Britt McHenry suspended or terminated as a result of her comments. Ms. McHenry is our neighbor, and, as she said, to paraphrase, made remarks that were out of line.  She is human and errors in judgement can be made in the heat of the moment. Gina is a single mother of 3 children who works a difficult job to provide her family. Gina holds no ill will toward Ms. McHenry. As a small business, we saw no benefit to releasing the video, except to highlight personal attacks employees in jobs like towing, public parking enforcement and others sometimes encounter. The video was not licensed or sold to anyone. For her part, McHenry apologized for her actions on Thursday on Twitter. "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things," she tweeted. "As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."
