Nick Cannon’s Potty Mouth Upset People + ‘Tonight Show’ Thanks Hillary: Pop Bits
Miley Cyrus thanks Hillary Clinton, Harvey Weinstein confronts major sexual harassment claims and more, in today's Pop Bits:
The departed America's Got Talent host performed at Georgian Court University, a conservative religious school in New Jersey, and administrators are unhappy with the content of his routine. "While comedy often explores serious social issues in ways that are fun and thought-provoking, Mr. Cannon's act crossed the line," said the school's president. "His words were offensive and do not represent our Mercy core values." Cannon responded on Twitter, saying he would refuse to apologize and adding, "I'm sorry your university doesn't believe in freedom of speech."
We have no idea if his routine was funny or offensive or what, but this is most definitely not a "freedom of speech" issue, Nick.
Miley Cyrus joined the women of The Tonight Show in expressing their gratitude to the former Secretary of State. “Thank you, Hillary, for all the work you’ve done for public health care," joked one. "Ever since the election, I’ve really depended on my government-subsidized anti-anxiety medication” — which is a sentiment shared by millions.
Ashley Judd and numerous women who worked for Harvey Weinstein have come forward alleging the Hollywood mogul sexually harassed them. Weinstein disputes some of the charges, though he did issue a statement saying, "I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go."
Stop. You had us at $1 margaritas.
