Manchild Justin Bieber Will Get Roasted On Comedy Central

that's what you get for being a douche, bro
Swaggy

Noted tattoo enthusiast and walking condom-beanie Justin Bieber will finally get the Comedy Central Roast treatment, according to Ryan Seacrest.. The special will tape in March and air at an undetermined time in 2015. I am sure the waiting list for participants is already long (Seth Rogen is surely first in line, given his longtime distaste for the Biebs), but I would like to nominate “Saturday Night Live”‘s Kate McKinnon to basically run the whole thing. I would actually love it if somehow, at the end, McKinnon’s jaw unhinges and she swallows the real Bieber whole, absorbing his life force, and giving her spot-on impression new, brute strength. Watch her spoof his Calvin Klein commercial on SNL above, and wait with bated breath for the roast, which will probably be the best thing you watch in 2015. [Ryan Seacrest]

Jon Hamm Is Obsessed With Cats And That’s The Best News I’ve Heard All Day

Jon Hamm
We Are Kindred Spirits

Nothing fills me with happiness quite like seeing Jon Hamm act like the total opposite of his extremely unlikable TV counterpart, Don Draper. Luckily for me, that happens pretty much every time Jon opens his mouth. Today in Jon Acting Affable, he displays his deep love for cats on the Comedy Central show “@midnight.” Nothing says “date me” (or “do me,” for that matter) quite like his dedication to kitties.

#WorseCollegeClasses Is The Hashtag Of Our Nightmares

#worsecollegeclass twitter

Comedy Central’s game show @Midnight features a segment called Hashtag Wars and this week’s topic was #WorseCollegeClasses. To honor finals week and remind students that it could be worse, each game show contestant had to come up with college classes students wouldn’t want to take like “Advanced Meth or Fart History.” Twitter followers got to play along in real time and the results were some cringeworthy college classes along with users critiquing the bad grammar of the hashtag. In the context of the show “worse” does make sense but out of context it does look like it should be “worst college classes.” Check out the best Twitter responses and video on College Candy…

Stephen Colbert Responds To #CancelColbert By Shutting Down The Ching Chong Ding Dong Foundation For Sensitivity To Orientals Or Whatever

Stephen Stands His Ground

Stephen Colbert has finally responded to the hashtag #CancelColbert, which was trending last week on Twitter. In true “Colbert Report” fashion, he did it in character as a pompous blowhard conservative who “doesn’t see race.” A quick recap for those of you who were down a hole all weekend: in response to a news segment about racism towards Native Americans, someone from the Comedy Central Twitter account tweeted a joke about Asians referencing an older skit from a prior Colbert show about racism. Some people on Twitter freaked out over the perceived racist slight and created the hashtag #CancelColbert, which eventually started trending. Although at least from what I could see, many folks tweeting it were saying not to cancel “Colbert.”

On last night’s show in a segment called “Who’s Attacking Me Now?”, Stephen Colbert responded to #CancelColbert … or, as he put it, “the dark forces trying to silence my message.” Keep reading »

Don’t #CancelColbert: Stephen Colbert Blasted Over Satirical Tweet About Racism That He Didn’t Even Send

You read a tweet that looks like it’s from a celebrity and it says this:

“I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding Dong Foundation For Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.”

Pretty racist and disturbing, right? Of course it is. Then you realize that it was tweeted from the Twitter handle @ColbertReport, which is run by Comedy Central, and came from the mouth of the character “Stephen Colbert” played by Stephen Colbert.

Oh yes, we are amidst yet another huge Internet outrage shitstorm that grew out of proportion in a New York minute.

The tweet was a reference to Wednesday’s episode of “The Colbert Report” about the Washington Redskins football team and their owner Dan Snyder. The Redskins have long been under fire for their racist team name (a reference to Native Americans) and the ownership’s refusal to change it, despite repeated requests from those in Native communities. (Check out the blog Native Appropriations for lots of backstory on this.) Recently Dan Snyder announced via the team’s website that they created the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, which will “commit to making a real, lasting, positive impact on Native American quality of life.” In other words, he is using the offensive name in the title of the foundation they started to help those affected by the offensive name.  Keep reading »

I Could Watch James Franco Getting Punched In The Face All Day
Franco, Franco, Franco!

In my old age, I’ve gone a bit soft on Mr. James Franco, the writer/actor/director/churlish bon vivant responsible for things like this and this. Maybe it was his spot on impression of himself in “This Is The End” that made me warm to him, but his stupid face doesn’t make me nearly as angry as it used to. Still, I can’t help but enjoy this Christina Aguilera-soundtracked commercial for his forthcoming Comedy Central roast (airing on the network on September 2). The gloved hand is just doing what so many of us wish we could. [Celebuzz]
