You might have heard that The Simpsons is trying to make an episode disappear. The episode in question is the season three premiere Stark Raving Dad, where Homer is put in a mental institution and ends up befriending a large white man who thinks he’s Michael Jackson, voiced by the late King of Pop himself, credited as John Jay Smith. Funnily enough, Jackson requested a sound-alike for the songs he sings in the episode, part of a joke Jackson wanted to play on his brothers. He was a weird dude.
This is in reaction to the documentary Leaving Neverland where we learned nothing because everyone knew Michael Jackson was a kiddie fiddler since the 1980s. Here’s what James L Brooks told the Wall Street Journal:
It feels clearly the only choice to make,” Mr. Brooks said of the 1991 episode in which Mr. Jackson voiced the character of a patient in a mental hospital who believes he is the pop star.
Mr. Brooks said he, along with Matt Groening and Al Jean, the other two masterminds of the long-running Fox cartoon, came to the conclusion after watching the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland.” In the documentary, which premiered earlier this week, two men allege in graphic and compelling detail that Mr. Jackson molested them over several years when they were children.
“The guys I work with—where we spend our lives arguing over jokes—were of one mind on this,” Mr. Brooks said in an interview, speaking on behalf of the production team behind “The Simpsons.”
Of course they have the right to do this, but it raises the question: why now and not twenty years ago? He did answer that.
“The documentary gave evidence of monstrous behavior, he said, adding that he went into it wanting to “believe the thing that we believe,” which was that Mr. Jackson was falsely accused.
It’s kind of interesting that so many people had this reaction, because here’s no new evidence in this documentary, just some victim porn where people cry and say how hard it was on them. It really helped them connect with the people they thought were lying for the past thirty years.
Here’s why this is dumb: people who want to see the episode will see the episode. It’s gone from the iTunes store and the FX app, and I assume other digital marketplaces, but it’s still really easy to find to download on the internet. People who bought it on DVD or Blu Ray still have it (even though they said it will be pulled from future releases). And really, people should be allowed to watch it if they want to. I get pulling it from TV and even the streaming app, but no one is going to accidentally come across it on a DVD.
Also, you can ask any Family Guy fan, episodes and segments being pulled just makes people want to see them more. People went nuts when they found out there was an unaired episode from the original run. There are actually two now, one that eventually aired and one that still hasn’t.
Brooks said this about pulling the episode:
“I’m against book burning of any kind. But this is our book, and we’re allowed to take out a chapter,” he said.
You can’t make the past not have happened. How many more episodes of The Simpsons are going to get pulled now?I feel like it’s open season. The Mel Gibson episode, maybe? The ones John K was a guest animator on? George Takei’s guest spot as Akria? I’m sure there are tons of people we could object to. This episode is 27 years old. Michael Jackson wasn’t profiting off of it before he died, he sure as hell isn’t now.
I don’t even really get the statement they’re trying to make her. Fucking kids is bad? Thanks, everyone knew that. Would people be confused if you didn’t do this? I have news for you, having an episode with Michael Jackson in it isn’t going to do any more damage to your brand than the last ten seasons of your show have.

I don’t know what you have to do to be a billionaire, but it probably involves something shady. In the case of Ehud Arye Laniado, it was diamond trading, which, if you know anything about diamonds, is a huge red flag. I’m not saying he sold blood diamonds, but dead people can’t sue for defamation so he was almost certainly selling blood diamonds or something equally unethical. You can tell by the way he made a billion dollars doing it.
Anyway, it turns out Ehud Arye Laniado had both a billion dollars and a tiny dick, so he decided to do something about it. Unfortunately for him, it cost him his life. From the Toronto Sun:
The 65-year-old big wheel died of a heart attack at a private Paris hospital where he was undergoing a penis enlargement procedure.
Reports say the Israeli-Belgian died on the operating table.
Belgian media report that Laniad was stricken when a substance was injected into his penis triggering his demise.
I don’t know how I’m going to die, but if I’m lucky, nowhere in my autopsy or obituary will it say I “was stricken when a substance was injected into his penis triggering his demise.”
One friend told Belgian media that Laniado had always been focused on his appearance and how others perceived him.
Well, now he’s known to the entire world as “that billionaire with the tiny dick.”
Last week, Meghan McCain broke down in tears on The View because congresswoman Ilhan Omar said she didn’t like being expected to pledge loyalty to Israel in order to do her job as an elected official. McCain, and a lot of people called this anti-Semitic because that line of attack has worked in England and France so why not give it try. McCain is not Jewish, but she was so upset because she’s friends with Joe Lieberman, who is just the worst. Lieberman is most famous for fighting to keep health insurance expensive and to ban violent video games or something.
A Jewish cartoonist replied to her with this cartoon, which McCain called anti-Semitic.

what does anti-Semitic even mean to you? he’s a Jewish cartoonist who has spent his career examining Jewish identity, Zionism & anti-semitism. if this is the most anti-Semitic thing you’ve ever seen, you haven’t spent any time examining those issues yourself

Conor McGregor’s ego getting ahead of him. The UFC star was arrested in Miami Beach for strong-armed robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
The arrest came after McGregor allegedly grabbed and smashed a fan’s phone. The guy was taking photos of McGregor outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.
Unlike his bus window smashing incident, this does not appear staged.
His attorney said:
“Last evening Conor McGregor was involved a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”
TMZ has more:
…the owner of the phone was walking out of the hotel at the same time as Conor and as the fan attempted to take a photo, Conor slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the ground. McGregor then allegedly stomped on the phone several times, damaging it.
Conor then walked away with his phone. Haha. Ok. He should’ve taken a pic of his balls and mailed the phone back to him.
So, basically, an overzealous fan got into McGregor’s face, thought he deserved a photo and now has many, smaller pieces of a phone instead of one big phone.
Some fans can be worse than paparazzi. I get celebs are celebs because fans put them there. Do they owe fans anything? Maybe a little. But that doesn’t mean shoving a flash into their face and thinking they owe you.
He’s currently held on $12,500 bail which is pennies to him, so not sure why he hasn’t been bailed out yet.
Dana White must be salivating over this. More press for Conor, more ways to hype a fighter who is on the decline.

Ariana Grande is clearly enjoying the single life.
And we support her excessive rendezvousing all the way!
This time, Ari was caught dining with her ex, Graham Phillips in New York City on March 10.
If you don't recognize the name, you're not alone.
This former BF was surprisingly left out of Ari's recent self-love anthem, "thank u, next", where she name-dropped notable exes including Mac Miller, Pete Davidson, Big Sean, and Ricky Alvarez.
But just because he didn't make the cut, the Riverdale actor and Ari were all smiles while being photographed together at celeb hotspot Carbone downtown around 9 p.m.
They stayed and chatted for around two hours, according to a source, looking very snug.
In appropriate Grande fashion, she donned a Burberry skirt and over-the-knee white boots under an oversized puffer coat for the occasion.
The 25-year-old Broadway star rocked a blazer and slacks underneath a sleek dark coat.
The singer and Phillips dated for nearly three whole years after they co-starred together on the Broadway musical 13 back in 2008.
In 2011 the two split, but the "Sweetener" singer is one of those girls who can somehow remain close friends with an ex.
Their intimate reunion definitely sparked romance rumors, however, Ari was also spotted with her other ex-lover rapper Big Sean almost two weeks prior to being photographed with Graham.
Ari and Sean dated for almost a year before they split back in 2015, and the two were recently caught getting cozy in his car outside a recording studio in LA on February 27.
The exes left together, leaving us uncertain as to whether the gathering was for business or pleasure.
The Grammy winner is hanging out with her past boy toys in the midst of ex-fiance Pete Davidson's new romance.
"So cute," Ariana told TMZ early in February regarding her thoughts on the comic and his new actress GF, Kate Beckinsale.
Pete and Kate began their romance at a Golden Globe's after party following his split from Ariana back in October of last year.
She posted a note to her Instagram Story, which informed her fans that she would be taking a break from social media to avoid "news n stuff that I'm tryna not to see rn," following the called-off engagement.
She later referenced Pete in her "thank u, next" jam where she apologized to him for "dipping," which led fans to believe it was her who initiated the breakup.
Meanwhile, the SNL comedian is keeping very busy with his new girl from the looks of their recent hockey game in New York City, as Ari remains busy with her many get-togethers.
However, another source says to not mistake her friendly gatherings for dates.
"She's single," the insider said. "She's seen some of her exes, but she's not dating any of them."
"She's just catching up with people that she once cared about and had a connection with."
The source added to E! News that she is in Pennsylvania right now rehearsing for her tour and that is her main focus.
"She isn't thinking about one particular guy or that aspect of her life. She's working very hard to get ready for her shows," the insider claims.
Working hard but playing harder? We think so!
It's been over a week since Leaving Neverland debuted and Michael Jackson's most ardent defenders continue to lash out in appalling and inappropriate ways.
First, Paris Jackson revealed that she doesn't believe her father's accusers and essentially laughed off the very serious allegations against him, much to the chagrin of many of her fans.
Now, the disgraced pop star is being defended by another person who had a close relationship with him as a child.
And Aaron Carter's handling of the situation makes Paris' look perfectly reasonable by comparison.
Carter not only refuses to believe the accusers featured in the documentary, he says he'd like punch one of them -- Wade Robson -- in the face.
Carter made the threat in an interview with TMZ that started on a confusing note and got more bizarre from there.
"My reaction to Leaving Neverland was incredible," says Carter (who doesn't appear to have understood the opening question).
In the rambling segment that appeared online Monday afternoon, Carter goes on to argue that his experience in Jackson's home was positive, therefore, it's impossible that anyone could have been molested by the pop star.
"What you're doing is stomping on an icon and a legend's grave," he says, addressing Robson.
Aaron then played the always-unfortunate "why not come forward sooner?" card.
"Why not do it when he was alive, man?" he demands at one point.
Asked if it was even possible that Robson, Safechuck, and other accusers could be telling the truth, Carter offers this reply:
"Not based on my experience. I hung out with Michael Jackson. I stayed at his house. I stayed in his bedroom."
Carter then concedes that he was 15 at the time, which is considerably older than the age at which Jackson's accusers claim they were molested.
From there, the situation really gets ugly, as Carter openly fantasizes about assaulting Robson:
"I might be a pop singer, but I'm also from the f--kin' South. You're lucky I got something to lose now. Because I would punch you in your face," Carter added in what appears to be a direct threat to Robson.
No word yet on what it is that Aaron has to lose.
You would think both Aaron and Paris have never before encountered the notion that two individuals can have radically different experiences with the same person.
No one is doubting that Michael was a mentor to a number of young entertainers, or that he was a competent and devoted father (although that infamous baby-dangling incident certainly raises a lot of questions).
But there's no ignoring the growing mountain of evidence that suggests Jackson engaged in sexual activity with young boys.
There might be a way for someone to offer a reasonable and informed counter-argument.
But neither Paris nor Aaron is doing that.
The “foul mouthed pre-teen” genre more or less went away with the 80s, a time when kids swearing and getting up to no good on film happened on the regular. Leave it to Seth Rogen and his friend and writing/producing partner Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Sausage Party) to bring back that glorious time with their new film Good Boys.
Directed by The Office veteran Gene Stupnitsky, making his feature directorial debut, the film follows the exploits of middle schoolers Max (Room‘s Jacob Tremblay) and his two buddies played by Brady Noon (Boardwalk Empire) and Keith L. Williams (The Last Man on Earth) as they ditch school for the day. Along the way they get in to all manner of R-rated shenanigans that are, as we’re reminded in the trailer’s cold open, for adults only.
Essentially, if you’re looking for Superbad but with middle schoolers, this is the movie for you. It’s hard to say if it’ll actually be successful in pulling off the risky gambit of having pre-teens swear a lot, but it seems Rogen is the guy to do it well. We’ve got a bit of a wait before we’ll be able to tell if it’s any good as Good Boys opens in North America on August 16.

I’ve noticed that my Dark Thirsty Web contemporaries play pap pics the hell up in their headlines, so I’m just trying to keep up. Did I do good? Are you horny? The truth is that the queen of the Fanning dy-nasty, twenty-year-old Elle, has lost a few pounds on her hips for ya over the years, and that she’s now bones, boobs, and ‘tude. The side boob-revealing yellow dress she wore to the Miu Miu fashion show perfectly flaunted her perky and petite rack. There’s something about a chick with a tight, toned, and lean bod that’s super sexy, and Elle fits the bill. Plus look at that crizazy busty wusty musty juicy yummy yum yum rack. Eh?

It looks like Khloe Kardashian has finally realized that Tristan Thompson never deserved her.
But she's also realized something more important: he doesn't deserve True, either.
A new report says that Khloe is planning to keep full kustody of baby True -- and that Tristan doesn't seem to care.
HollywoodLife reports that, in light of many recent events, Khloe Kardashian wants to keep full custody of baby True.
"Khloe has no plans to take True to see Tristan right now," an insider reveals.
It may sound like she's being petty, but it sounds like she has a reason.
And it doesn't sound like Tristan is going to be any more bothered about this than he was about any of his cheating scandals.
"When Tristan was in LA last in February during his All-Star break," the source said. "Khloe begged him to see True."
"And," the insider laments. "He showed no interest then."
Since it's clearly not a priority for him, Khloe isn't going to try to force the issue.
"So," the source says. "She has no plans to go out of her way to bring True to see Tristan anytime soon."
True will be one year old in a month. She's probably old enough to notice when someone from her life goes missing.
But it sounds like Khloe doesn't want True getting any more attached than she already is.
"Tristan also hasn’t asked to see True," the insider shares.
That's so rough, and the source adds: "and Khloe feels so sad for True because of this."
According to the insider: "She really wishes Tristan would step it up, physically."
Meaning that she wants him to literally be present in True's life. That's not an unreasonable request.
But if Tristan ever changes his tune and it comes to a custody battle, Khloe expects to win handily.
"Given Tristan’s lack of interest in seeing True," the source says. "Khloe is not worried at all that she’ll have full custody of True."
"Which is of course what she wantsm" the insider adds.
"Tristan also travels a ton," the report mentions. "Which Khloe feels is not in True’s best interest."
Of course, a previous report by HollywoodLife clearly came from a source much more sympathetic to Tristan's perspective.
Or, at least, from someone who wants to help him save face despite himself.
"Tristan loves True and has every intention of being a good father, and co-parent with Khloe," that source claimed. "But it’s challenging."
"He has been busy working," the insider alleged.
"Tristan appreciates Khloe can give True or more stable home, close to family," the source acknowledged.
"So," the insider explained. "He is fine with her having custody of their baby."
Yeah. We're sure he put a lot of thought and soul-searching into that.
Is this uncomfirmed report true? We don't know.
The claim that Tristan hasn't shown any real interest in seeing True sounds consistent with many other reports.
On the one hand, it would be surprising to hear that Khloe isn't in denial about Tristan's disinterest in fatherhood.
On the other hand ... everybody's growing and learning every day. Even the Kardashians.
Maybe Khloe has grown much wiser over the past eleven months.
If you're just dating or simply married, taking back a cheater is a purely personal choice.
When you have a child together and you take them back, you're risking that your own heartbreak will impact your child down the road.
Khloe may have felt that being a single parent to True would make her grow up with "daddy issues."
In reality, True just needs a lot of love and support.
With that, she'll never miss what she never had in the first place, you know?
It will be interesting to see if Tristan starts showing an interest in fatherhood when his sports career dies down.
That will probably be too little, too late.
