Los Angeles Local News Anchors Handle This Morning’s Earthquake Like Pros

Los Angeles Local News Anchors Handle This Morning's Earthquake Like Pros
Better Duck And Cover!

Earthquakes are serious business. Mother Nature does not fuck around. All that being said, I LOLed upon watching this video of these two KTLA anchors responding live as a 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit Los Angeles this morning. They straight dived under that desk. And his face! (In all seriousness, we hope everyone is a-okay out there on the West Coast. Having grown up in San Diego, I know all too well how scary earthquakes can be. Duck and cover!) [YouTube]

Trans Woman Banned From L.A. Gym’s Women’s Locker Room

todays lady news
  • Yanel Valenzuela of California told a gym trainer that she is a transgender woman, hoping to get an exercise routine tailored to her health needs. But instead, she alleges, the trainer shared that information with others and an L.A. Fitness manager barred Valenzuela from using the women’s locker room entirely. They realize she’s a woman and doesn’t belong in the men’s locker room, right? This is grossly discriminatory against trans folks and completely inappropriate.  [Queerty, Huffington Post]

Maybe it's you, DJ

Get a load of this new “comedy music video” from some guy named DJ Lubel. It features a cornucopia of has-beens and never-weres, singing a rather mysogynist and racist song about how the women of Los Angeles never put out. It’s really, really charming. I mean, the video starts off with a guy telling his friends that he once got laid by “telling the bitch I was Chris Brown,” and then it goes downhill — yes, downhill — from there. Keep reading »

Pervy New Dress Code
  • A woman claims she was fired from O’Hara’s, a bar near UCLA, for complaining about a new dress code for women that required wait staff to wear short, plaid school girl skirts  and place fans around the restaurant to blow their skirts up! Ew. Creepy. The woman wrote a letter to her boss registering her complaint, then quickly saw her hours reduced before being fired three days later. That fan thing is straight-up sexual harassment: indefensible in any workplace.

Delicious news! If, per chance, you’ve been considering a move to the City of Angels, this should seal the deal: a cupcake bakery by the name of Sprinkles has clinched my wildest childhood hopes and dreams with a 24-hour cupcake ATM. “In the heart of Bevery Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24 Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors,” reads the press release. This is probably the best thing ever, and I’m legitimately baffled as to why New York didn’t think of it first. This is the city that never sleeps; people need cupcakes at all hours! I hope someone around here catches wind of the idea and opens up a copycat … preferably Buttercup. I love those. [Perez Hilton]
