Josh and Anna Duggar Shut Down Website Amid Molestation Reports

Josh and Anna Duggar’s official website has been taken down.

It’s been three days since Josh responded to allegations that he molested five underage girls as a teen. In wake of the reports, Josh’s scheduled appearance at a Christian homeschool convention in Sandusky, Ohio, has been canceled, according to E! Online.

TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from the air but still has full episodes.

The network sparked outrage by running a 19 Kids and Counting marathon on Thursday, the same day that Josh admitted to “wrongdoing” in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.

On Friday, TLC released a statement saying it was “deeply saddened” and pulled the show off the air. However, the program has not been officially canceled.

This is not the first time the channel has been linked to sexual assault. In October 2014, TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled after matriarch June Shannon, 35, was rumored to be dating a convicted sex offender. Shortly after the show’s cancellation, TLC swiftly cut all ties with the family.

Last week, InTouch published police reports revealing the dark allegations from Josh’s past.

In the police report, which PEOPLE has confirmed is in reference to Josh, it appears that Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, knew about the alleged molestations and didn’t go to authorities at first, but rather to fellow church members.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Josh said on Thursday before announcing he had resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.

J.K. Rowling Had the Best Response to Ireland Legalizing Gay Marriage

She summed up her feelings by tweeting a meme to a fan

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been tweeting up a storm since Ireland became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage by a national vote.

When an Irish fan tweeted to the best-selling children’s book writer with the hope that Ireland’s vote would make wizards like Albus Dumbledore feel more welcome in the country, Rowling tweeted back a photo of Keanu Reeves with the caption “WHAT IF DUMBLEDORE AND GANDALF WERE GAY TOGETHER.” (The meme is inspired by the horrified look on Reeves’ face in the 1989 movie Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and in this case references Dumbledore, the headmaster of wizard school Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series, and Gandalf, the heroic wizard from The Lord of the Rings.)

Rowling revealed in 2007 that she always thought of Dumbledore as gay, though his sexuality was not stated in the books.

Ryan Reynolds Helps a Young Cancer Patient Meet Deadpool

Tony Acevedo wanted to meet the character because "Deadpool never dies"

A young cancer patient got to meet the anti-hero Deadpool—as played by Ryan Reynolds—thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The foundation sent Tony Acevedo, who suffers from Hodgkin Disease, a type of lymphoma, up to the Vancouver set where Reynolds is filming Deadpool, the movie based on the Marvel comic book due out in 2016.

As Reynolds wrote on Instagram, “I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Make-A-Wish spokesperson said Acevedo wanted to meet this particular fictional character because “Deadpool never dies.”

Michael B. Jordan Slams Internet Trolls Who Say a Black Man Can’t Play Johnny Storm

"To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer"

Actor Michael B. Jordan, who will play Johnny Storm—aka The Human Torch—in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, is firing back at online commenters who did not think he looked the part because he is black and the character has blond hair and blue eyes in the comic book. Jordan wrote an op-ed published Friday on Entertainment Weekly’s website:

Some people may look at my casting as political correctness or an attempt to meet a racial quota, or as part of the year of “Black Film.” Or they could look at it as a creative choice by the director, Josh Trank, who is in an interracial relationship himself—a reflection of what a modern family looks like today.

This is a family movie about four friends—two of whom are myself and Kate Mara as my adopted sister—who are brought together by a series of unfortunate events to create unity and a team. That’s the message of the movie…To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer…this is the world we live in.

The movie is set to be released in theaters on Aug. 7, 2015.

Model Breastfeeds Her Son on Cover of Elle Australia

The Australian model hopes the image will make moms more comfortable about breastfeeding in public

A cover of the June 2015 issue of Elle Australia, which is only available to subscribers, is going viral because it shows model Nicole Trunfio breastfeeding her son Zion Rain Clark. The issue also features a story about Trunfio and new motherhood, as the 29-year-old and fiancé Gary Clark, Jr., welcomed Zion to the world four months ago.

“This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set,” Elle‘s editor-in-chief Justine Cullen said on the magazine’s website.

Supportive comments started trending on social media via hashtags #normalizebreastfeeding and ‪#‎weareonlyhuman:

Others, however, think it was cowardly of Elle Australia to only make the cover available to subscribers. An example of the outraged comments on Elle Australia‘s Facebook page:

“How sad you were not brave enough to use the image of a women’s body at its most beautiful on all of your mags.”

“You’re sending an incredibly negative message about the suitability of breastfeeding in public by choosing this image as a cover, yet only making it available to subscribers (ie only women). Yes, men will surely be offended by the photo, but 1) they don’t buy your magazine and 2) THIS ATTITUDE IS WHAT WE NEED TO ELIMINATE IN SOCIETY!”

Trunfio wrote on Facebook that she is proud of the photo, taken by photographer Georges Antoni, hailing it as a “positive and healthy” statement:

There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood. The last thing I want to do is be controversial, so please take this for what it is, let us‪#‎normalizebreastfeeding‬ there is nothing worse than a mother that is judged for feeding her hungry child in public. ‪#‎weareonlyhuman‬ I’m so proud of this cover and what it stands for. I obviously don’t look like this or wear [this] while I am breastfeeding but this stands for all women out there, whether you breastfeed or not, we gave birth, we are women, we are mothers.

It is the latest magazine cover of a breastfeeding mom to go viral, from Brad Pitt’s photo of Angelina Jolie breastfeeding for the Nov. 2008 W magazine cover to a May 2012 TIME cover “Are You Mom Enough” showing a mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old son, photographed by Martin Schoeller.

Watch Jimmy Fallon and The Rock Give the Worst Graduation Speech of All Time

They play two high school students with the lowest GPAs, in 1989

Just in time for graduation season, Jimmy Fallon decided to spoof the typical commencement address with the help of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. On Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show, they performed as two high school students graduating in 1989 (after eight years in school.)

They ramble idiotically for several minutes and offer absolutely no helpful advice to their fellow graduates. Fallon does basically come up with the idea for Facebook — though the pair immediately dismisses it as a “big sack of never gonna happen.”

The speech may not offer any pearls of wisdom, but we appreciate it for the opportunity to watch Jimmy Fallon and The Rock act like total morons for five minutes.

Watch The Kardashians and The Real Housewives Get the Bad Lip Reading Treatment

Thank Red Nose Day for this

Kourtney Kardashian really wants to share her fish sticks with her sister, Kim. At least according to a bad lip reading of their conversation courtesy of Red Nose Day. Of course they weren’t the only members of the Keeping Up With the Kardashian crew saying strange things in the clip above.

“I put weird stuff in my ear,” “said” Bruce Jenner, according to the expert lip readers used in the video. “Like what?” asked Kris Jenner. “Like Doritos,” Bruce Jenner replied. “That’s where you put it,” Kris replied matter-of-factly.

Other highlights of the poorly interpreted conversations include Real Housewives stars NeNe Leakes, Kim Richards, and more talking nonsense (well, more nonsense than usual).

It’s all good fun for a good cause. Specifically, Red Nose Day a fundraising event that just debuted in the United States, decades after it launched in the U.K. in 1985. The special, which aired on NBC on Thursday, also featured the likes of Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Coldplay, Julianne Moore and the cast of Game of Thrones. And, of course, The Real Housewives.

It’s Been 10 Years Since Tom Cruise Made Oprah’s Couch Famous

The "brouhaha" lives on even after a decade

Tom Cruise’s infamous Oprah interview turns 10 on May 23. And while the episode of the show has been exaggerated in the popular consciousness (Cruise never really jumped up and down on the couch, merely stood on it briefly and then did a lot of kneeling), the Internet never forgets.

That’s thanks largely to videos like “Tom Cruise Kills Oprah” and an endless succession of GIFs and memes that cemented Cruise’s appearance on the show in the zeitgeist.

“Certainly, I did not think it would turn into the brouhaha that it did,” Oprah told TV Guide later. She has since refused to re-air the footage, calling the wave of viral clips that have sprung up around it “unfair.”

But it continues to live on, particularly in situations like the one above, in which Wayfair PR placed a couch in Boston’s Copley Square and asked people what would make them happy enough to jump up on it, à la Cruise, complete with Oprah and Cruise masks.

Paramount

It can be yours for only $14.8 million

Seeing Regina’s mammoth mansion in Mean Girls always presents a feeling of inferiority, not dissimilar to how Cady feels through most of the movie. But there’s an easy way to remedy that: buy it! If you want to live in the 20,000-square-foot Toronto house, the asking price is only $14.8 million. It remains unclear whether the Avril Lavigne poster and an inappropriately young sister dancing to Kelis’ “Milkshake” music video are included.

Pratt explains how to act in just about every scenario: when you’re in a Jamba Juice and you see a T-Rex, when you’re in the desert and you see a snake, and when you get pulled over and you have weed in your glove compartment.

“This has been acting with Chris Pratt,” he concludes. “I hope it helps. I’m guessing it won’t. Just work out a lot and use sunscreen and roll the dice, man.”
