Warner Bros. files lawsuit against Paramount over South Park

Published

on

Warner Bros. has filed a major $740 million lawsuit against Paramount over South Park, but it has nothing to do with offending people on-screen

 
Warner Bros. claims the media company breached its contract with HBO Max by airing South Park on its own streaming platform, Paramount+.

HBO Max is a unit of Warner Bros. Discovery, which also owns CNN.

The lawsuit also claims a separate $1.3 billion deal between MTV, a subsidiary of Paramount, and South Park creators, broke the terms of the contract in August 2021.

Paramount has denied Warner Bros’ claims and accused Warner Bros of failing to pay fees it owes under the agreement.

This follows a controversial episode just realise where ex-royals Meghan and Harry were heavily mocked in the show titled ‘The Worldwide Privacy Tour’.

Since its airing, Meghan was reportedly left “upset and overwhelmed” over the depiction of herself and husband.

According to a new survey after the episode aired, Harry’s approval rating in the United States is now at -10, with Markle’s at -17.

The disgraced Prince Andrew’s rating is only -2.

Ed Sheeran admits he “didn’t want to live anymore” after death of friends

The 32-year-old has been dealing with depression in the past, and felt the feelings resurface last year

 
Ed Sheeran has opened up during a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The hugely-popular singer-songwriter says he “didn’t want to live any more” after the deaths of his friends SBTV founder Jamal Edwards and cricketer Shane Warne.

Edwards gave Sheeran his first big break and died suddenly from a heart attack in after taking cocaine and drinking alcohol.

Sheeran believes the tragedy convinced him to kick a drug habit he himself had developed in his 20s.

Sheeran says he has been dealing with depression “throughout [his] life” and felt the feelings resurface last year.

A parent to two young girls, Sheeran was worried his thoughts were “selfish” and as a father he “felt really embarrassed about it”.

The 32-year-old credits his wife with encouraging him to seek help.

“The help isn’t a button that is pressed, where you’re automatically OK. It is something that will always be there and just has to be managed.”

‘Winnie The Pooh’ horror film to not be shown in Hong Kong or Macau

Published

on

Many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping

 
The new ‘Winnie the Pooh’ horror film has officially hit cinemas – but if you live in Hong Kong or Macau, sorry, unfortunately you won’t get a chance to see it.

Cinemas in these regions have refused to show the movie and, while the exact reason remains unclear, many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping.

References to the original, family-friendly version of Winnie the Pooh have been used to protest against the Chinese president in recent years.

Censors in China have since clamped down on references to AA Milne’s character, and the 2018 Christopher Robin film was banned in the country.

Hong Kong authorities have denied the film had been censored, but the director told Reuters: “The cinemas agreed to show it, then all independently came to the same decision overnight. It [isn’t] a coincidence.”

The film has been shown in over 4,000 cinemas worldwide.

But perhaps it’s for the best it was banned in Hong Kong and Macau – the horror flick has received a score of just four per cent on film rating site Rotten Tomatoes.

It depicts Pooh bear, known for being kind and honest, as a vengeful axe wielding half-man, half-bear.

The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018

The three men accused of killing 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion during a 2018 ambush robbery have been found guilty.

A Florida jury convicted Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome on Monday after deliberating for more than a week.

All three were charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of the controversial rapper.

Another man, Robert Allen, pleaded guilty last year to second-degree murder.

The three face a possible sentence of life behind bars.

The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018 while visiting a motorcycle shop.

He was leaving when he was approached by two armed masked men who “demanded property” from him.

At least one of the men shot him during a 45-second struggle and the suspects then grabbed a bag full of $50,000 in cash that the rapper had just withdrawn.
