It’s well known that when President Donald Trump calls you “a great guy,” there’s trouble ahead. Well, he didn’t call former FBI head James Comey that in today’s tweetstorm – but he did give him a lashing and a new nickname. “Leakin’ James Comey” was clearly in the Trump cross hairs in the Sunday tweetstorm, as the Commander-in-Tweet pulled no punches.

Kevin Hart Has Deleted Old Anti-Gay Tweets Since Landing Oscar Hosting Gig

Kevin Hart has been busy scrubbing his Twitter account of his old anti-gay tweets since he was tapped as Oscar host earlier this week.

And just hours after deleting the tweets, Hart broke his silence in a post to Instagram, saying in part, “Stop looking for reasons to be negative.” Read his whole statement here.

Hart has a long history of making homophobic jokes. And now, it seems, those jokes are coming back to haunt him.

The imbroglio started after Guardian editor Benjamin Lee tweeted out screen grabs of some of Hart’s now-deleted messages on Twitter, including one from 2011 in which he wrote: “Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.”

In another tweet, Hart said someone looked like “a gay bill board for AIDS” and called another person a “FAT F-G.”

Reps for Hart and the Academy did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

A person with knowledge of the situation who asked to remain anonymous tells TheWrap that Kevin Hart’s team is currently in talks with GLAAD. It’s unclear what that entails, but in 2007, when actor Isaiah Washington used an anti-gay slur against co-star T.R. Knight on the set of “Grey’s Anatomy,” GLAAD worked with the disgraced actor on a series of PSAs about the power of hateful words.

Hart’s old tweets include a flurry of anti-gay slurs, including “homo,” “fat faced f-g”, “man bitch” and “f-g boy.”

When someone tweeted that Hart, George Lopez and Sarah Silverman were the “worst comedians ever,” Hart responded with “I bet ur in a gay gang and u do drive by d— sucks.”

In another tweet, he responded with “thanks f-g boy.”

“I’m willing 2bet that u got hit in the back of your head w/ ‘soft peaches’ in high school,” he responded to another person, “they probly gave ur gay ass wedges lol.”

On Wednesday, BuzzFeed’s Adam Vary tweeted a scrolling video of dozens of Hart’s anti-gay tweets, which he grabbed after seeing Lee’s initial tweet.

“I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted “f-g,” “homo,” or “gay,” Vary wrote. “It was…a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 — i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit.”

In an article for The Guardian, Lee wrote about Hart’s anti-gay history, which includes a 2010 stand-up routine in which the comedian said: “One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic, I have nothing against gay people, be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, being a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will. Now with that being said, I don’t know if I handled my son’s first gay moment correctly. Every kid has a gay moment but when it happens, you’ve got to nip it in the bud!”

This isn’t the first time the Academy has faced this problem.  In 2011 the Oscars fired Brett Ratner as producer of the 84th Academy Awards after using the word “f-gs.”

Fox News ‘Most Tweeted About News Outlet’ of 2018 Despite Weeks-Long Boycott

Twitter revealed the most tweeted about news organizations in 2018 on Wednesday, with Fox News and Sean Hannity topping the list. Rounding out the top three were CNN and Jake Tapper in second, with TheHill and media correspondent Joe Concha taking third.

MSNBC, the New York Times, ABC News, NBC News, the Washington Post, AP and Now This made up the remaining top 10.

The top spot for Fox came despite a network boycott of Twitter that is now nearly a month running. The radio silence from Fox News on Twitter has become increasingly noticeable since it began on Nov. 8.

Though they have never commented on it publicly, multiple FNC insiders told TheWrap last month the matter was related to protests outside the home of Tucker Carlson, with channel executives piqued that Twitter had allowed personal details about Carlson’s home address to spread on its platform.

The network also urged their talent to refrain from the platform as well in an internal email circulated among the digital team. Some Fox News personalities honored the ban for a while — while others, like Sean Hannity just blew it off from the get-go.

In a public statement at the time, the network strongly condemned the demonstration outside Carlson’s house, which the host said cracked his front door.

“The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view,” they said.

“Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground.”

‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘Roseanne’ Are 2018’s Most-Tweeted-About TV Shows

What do “Saturday Night Live,” “Roseanne,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Walking Dead” have in common? How much love they get on Twitter. The social media platform shared its year-in-review data with TheWrap Wednesday, revealing which TV shows were the most tweeted about in 2018.

Topping the list was the NBC sketch series, followed by the now-canceled Roseanne Barr-led comedy (which ABC quickly replaced with the Barr-less spinoff, “The Conners”) in second place, with Ellen Pompeo’s TGIT staple coming in third, and the AMC drama coming in fourth.

“SNL” jumped to 2018’s first place slot from No. 5 on the 2017 chart, which was restricted to just U.S. data. Last year’s list was ruled by “Game of Thrones,” but without airing any new episodes in 2018, the HBO series fell to No. 9 on the Top 10 this time.

Eric Trump Calls Out Kellyanne Conway’s Husband for ‘Utter Disrespect’ in Anti-Trump Administration Comments

Eric Trump unloaded with force Wednesday evening against George Conway, saying the Washington attorney’s constant criticisms of the Trump administration were disrespectful to his wife, Kellyanne Conway, who currently serves as a senior presidential counsellor.

“Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all,” Eric Trump said. “@KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”

The first son made sure to tag Kellyanne Conway personally just to make sure she didn’t miss it.

Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all. @KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.

— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) December 4, 2018

George Conway, a longtime GOP lawyer, has become a charter member of the #NeverTrump wing of his party, routinely denouncing the president on his Twitter feed and creating an untold number of headaches for his wife. His most recent snark concerned the president’s praise of Roger Stone, which Conway quote tweeted along with federal statute concerning witness tampering.

Also Read: Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Calls Trump Administration a ‘S–show in a Dumpster Fire’

“File under “18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512,” he said. George Conway didn’t respond directly to Eric Trump, but rather elected to retweet criticism of the tweet from others — like former CNN host Reza Aslan.

“Wait. Did I miss something? Did George Conway pay money to have sex with a porn star right after his wife gave birth?” he asked in a post retweeted more than 10,000 times.

Conway, once an unknown operative, has seen his star power grow in recent months with his lacerating critiques of Trump and his inner circle. The president has notably refrained from attacking Conway on Twitter, and Eric’s broadside is the most significant pushback from Team Trump so far.

Kellyanne has been notably skittish toward questions surrounding their marriage and her husband’s anti-Trump positions, and pointedly accused CNN of “sexism” for asking her about the issue in April.

Tim Cook Tells White Supremacists They ‘Have No Home’ on Apple Platforms

Apple CEO Tim Cook has a clear message for white supremacists looking to spew their hate on his platforms: Take a hike.

Receiving the first “Courage Against Hate” award from the Anti-Defamation League, Cook took what could be deemed as an unveiled swipe at Facebook and other tech companies currently under fire for being too slow to eradicate hate speech and misinformation on their platforms.

“At Apple, we believe technology needs to have a clear point of view,” Cook said in an acceptance speech. “This is no time to get tied up in knots. We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division or violence: You have no place on our platforms. You have no home here.”

Also Read: Apple Chief Tim Cook Calls Out ‘Data-Industrial Complex’

Cook went on to say: “From the earliest days of iTunes to Apple Music today we have always prohibited music with a history of white supremacy. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. And as we showed this year, we won’t give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do.”

In August, Apple yanked several podcasts from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones off of iTunes. Facebook, YouTube and Spotify soon followed suit. Twitter, which resisted the move at first, eventually joined the ban.

“We believe the future should belong to those who use technology to build a better, more inclusive and more hopeful world,” Cook said. “I believe the most sacred thing that each of us is given is our judgment, our morality, our own innate desire to separate right from wrong. Choosing to set that responsibility aside in a moment of trial is a sin.”

Also Read: Microsoft Bumps Apple as Most Valuable Company in the World

Last year, Cook blasted President Trump’s response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in an email to employees and pledged to donate $2 million to organizations battling hate groups.

“What occurred in Charlottesville has no place in our country,” the email said, according to BuzzFeed, which obtained a copy. “Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path. Its scars last generations. History has taught us this time and time again, both in the United States and countries around the world.”

The President of the United States is insisting his former personal attorney/fixer should serve “a full and complete” prison sentence for admitting to crimes that implicate POTUS. Donald Trump also accused special counsel Robert Mueller of seeking “lies” from witnesses about Trump, and wet-kissed longtime pal Roger Stone for having the “guts” to say he will not testify about Trump because he has had no contact with him about Russia and would have to make up stuff. In his t…

Rising early in Buenos Aires to attend the G20 summit, President Donald Trump finally put on the Twitter record his position about longtime fixer Michael Cohen’s court appearance the previous morning. Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, admitting Trump’s efforts to build a Trump tower in Moscow included contacts with the Kremlin, and continued well past January of 2016 as candidate Trump was insisting he had no dealings in Russia, arguing the U.S. should get along…

Laura Loomer Handcuffs Herself to Twitter’s New York Office to Protest Permanent Suspension

Far-right activist Laura Loomer protested her recent permanent suspension from Twitter by handcuffing herself to the front door at the company’s New York City office on Thursday afternoon.

Wearing a yellow Star of David on her sweater and carrying a sign reading “Jew hatred? A-ok! Nosey Jew? Banned” with the Twitter logo attached, Loomer told onlookers “enough is enough” when it comes to the company’s treatment of right-wing voices.

“You’re censoring and banning conservatives!” Loomer yelled while facing the office’s entrance. “You’re evil.”

Loomer’s account was purged last week after lambasting recently-elected Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). Loomer called Omar — a Somali refugee and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress —  “anti Jewish” in a tweet, soon after Omar had said she supported the Israel “boycott, divestment, and sanctions” movement.

“Ilhan is pro Sharia Ilhan is pro-[female genital mutilation],” Loomer tweeted. “Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.”

On Thursday, Loomer blasted Twitter for kicking off several prominent conservatives while failing to remove Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who compared Jews to termites in a video shared on social media last month. Twitter decided against following in Facebook’s footsteps after the social network hit Farrakhan with a one-month suspension for violating the company’s “hate speech policies.”

“I’m not going to leave, I’ll be out here all night. I’ll be out here for days if that’s what it takes,” Loomer shouted on Thursday. “I want to know why I was banned on Twitter but Louis Farrakhan still has his account.”

She then asked when Congress would take action against social platforms that were “silencing” conservatives.

“There is a terrible double standard that exists at Twitter, where if you’re a liberal or a Muslim, you’re allowed to say and do whatever you want,” Loomer continued. “Whether that’s calling for Jew hatred, calling Jews termites, calling for terrorist attacks, [or] inciting jihad like Linda Sarsour, right?”

Loomer’s stunt quickly turned into a spectacle. The police offered to cut Loomer free if she wanted to leave, because she’d lost her handcuff keys and Twitter was declining to press any charges, according to The Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer.

“We notified the relevant authorities who responded. The account holder was suspended for violating our policies. We apply the Twitter Rules impartially and not based on ideology,” a Twitter spokesperson told TheWrap.

Counter-protesters showed up to mock Loomer. At one point, some Gizmodo employees heckled Loomer, according to CNN.

Loomer’s banishment added to a growing list of conservatives removed from Twitter in the past two months. Most notoriously, digital shock jock Alex Jones was kicked off Twitter in September for violating its policy against “abusive behavior.” Jones had criticized CNN reporter Oliver Darcy, saying he had “the eyes of a rat,” among other things.

Ice T Finally Ate a Bagel and He’s Not a Fan: ‘Why Would I Eat an Unsweetened Donut?’ (Video)

Chill, everyone: rapper and “Law & Order: SVU” actor Ice T has finally eaten a bagel. But he’s not a fan.

“What happened was, on the show they wanted me to eat a bagel. I said, ‘I don’t eat bagels.’ But it was in the script, so you know — I just did it,” Ice T told Jimmy Fallon Wednesday of the breakfast-food controversy that swept the nation. “But I acted like I ate it — I didn’t eat it.”

“So then, on Twitter, somebody goes, ‘Why that kind of bagel?’ I said, ‘Because it was in the script,’” he reounted. “Then they said, ‘What’s your favorite?’ I said, ‘I’ve never had a bagel,’ and everybody lost they god—n mind.”

Dude, you’re 60. How has this never come up?

T’s explanation: “Look, I’m from South Central.”

“I ate one the other day,” he told the “Tonight Show” host. “I had one bite, I felt like I ate a loaf of bread. Why would I eat an unsweetened donut?”

Mariska Hargitay’s TV partner also (somehow) never had coffee before. And yes, he’s got thoughts.

“Black coffee: Why would someone do that to themself? They put some cream, they put a little sugar in it. I got it, it’s cool — I prefer tea. Not because my name is Ice T, I just prefer tea,” he said. “Black people like sweet stuff, just in case you didn’t know. We don’t drink unsweetened tea, stuff like that. White people do that. Black people like sweet things — can I live?”

You can live.

Steve Mnuchin Deletes GM-Bashing Retweet, Suggests His Account Was Hacked

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin revealed Wednesday that his Twitter account had been compromised by an unauthorized person who had used the access to send a retweet criticizing General Motors.

“A retweet was posted last night on @stevenmnuchin1 by someone other than the Secretary or an individual with authorized access to his account,” an updated tweet read Wednesday. “As such, the retweet is being deleted.”

Treasury reps for Mnuchin told Bloomberg that the agency was investigating the matter, though a rep for the White House did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

The unauthorized retweet came from a Trump fan account, which attacked General Motors for their much-hyped decision over the weekend to slash nearly 15,000 jobs in North America.

“If GM doesn’t want to keep their jobs in the United States, they should pay back the $11.2 billion bailout that was funded by the American taxpayer,” it read.

The tweet came to wide prominence after being retweeted by President Trump on Wednesday. There was no indication Wednesday afternoon that the president’s Twitter account had been compromised. Other major cabinet secretaries on Twitter including Alexander Acosta, Ryan Zinke, Ben Carson and Wilbur Ross also did not retweet the message.

Hacking snafus are rare given the extraordinary security measures in place for President Trump and his top officials, but the president’s mighty account was hacked before he took office in 2013 — which he reported on Twitter.

“My Twitter has been seriously hacked— and we are looking for the perpetrators,” he said in February of that year.
