Gilbert Gottfried, the actor and legendary stand-up comedian has passed away
Actor and comedy legend Gilbert Gottfried has died.
His family announced his death after a long illness via his Twitter page.
Gottfried was best known for his raw, scorched voice and crude jokes.
He stared in films including Aladdin and Problem Child.
A representative for the actor stated that he died of a “heart abnormality”
Gottfried leaves behind his wife and two children.
Celebrities have taken to social media to honour the star and share their best memories.
Walt Disney has also remembered the comedic icon, thanking Gottfried for his “iconic voice” and character.
Gottfried also defended his fellow comedians until the very end, using his last social media post to back Chris Rock after the recent Oscars event, which saw Will Smith and Rock have an on stage encounter.
In addition to his brash stand-up routines, the star was known for his piercing, squawky vocals, including in Disney’s hit movie, Alladin.
Gottfried died “after a long illness,” his family announced on social media.
Deepfakes are taking over Hollywood
Deepfakes are the online phenomenon changing the way in which we consume and trust social media
Have you ever scrolled through social media and found a celebrity selling something a bit left of centre?
Chances are you have fallen victim to a deepfake.
These images and videos are a type of artificial intelligence, which promises to create doctored videos, which are almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing.
They have typically been used in pornographic clips and for celebrity endorsements.
Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase
Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death
Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.
The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.
“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.
The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.
“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.
Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.
Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.
Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.
Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.
Tom Hanks open to continuing career with A.I. help
Despite the crackdown on A.I., one famous actor has raised the prospect of his career continuing after his death by using the technology
‘Forrest Gump’ and ‘Cast Away’ actor Tom Hanks says new tech could be used to recreate his image to appear in movies “from now until kingdom come”.
Hanks was asked about the legal ramifications of A.I. on a recent podcast with Adam Buxton.
He says talks are being held in the film industry about how to protect actors from the effects of the technology.
Hanks told the host: “I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.”
The award-winning actor acknowledged that tech developments could lead to an AI-generated version of himself appearing in films he may not not normally choose.
