Michael B. Jordan, Kendrick Sampson Lead Protest Ripping Trump, Cops and Hollywood

The actors and activists led a long BLM march Saturday through parts of L.A. and also Bev Hills. “Insecure” star Kendrick was the most vocal, leading chants like “F**k Donald Trump” and “Black lives they matter here” as they went.

They led the crowd right to the doorstep of Bev Hills PD, and that’s when Kendrick made a fiery speech that centered on two things: defunding police departments and getting President Trump out of office … even before the election.

Michael also addressed the protesters but was much less political … instead, he shouted down the Hollywood establishment. MBJ demanded studios and agents give black culture more of a voice and more power.

Charmed star Holly Marie Combs blames Trump for her grandfather’s death from coronavirus | Daily Mail Online

Charmed star Holly Marie Combs says President Donald Trump is personally responsible for the death of her grandfather, who passed away Sunday from coronavirus

The 46-year-old actress took to Twitter Monday to share the sad news, before sending a scathing message to the Commander-in-chief calling him ‘a disgrace to the human race’. 

Beneath one of Trump’s tweets, Combs wrote: ‘My grandfather died today. He voted for you. He believed you when you said this virus was no worse than the flu. He believed every lie you muttered and sputtered. He died today from Covid-19 one day after his 66th wedding anniversary.’

Combs, who is best known for starring alongside Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano in the TV drama Charmed, provided no further details about her grandfather’s death.

Following the posting of her tweet Monday, the actress was met with many sympathetic messages from fans sending condolences about the loss of her grandfather. 

However, others blasted the star saying it was irresponsible to place the blame on President Trump. 

‘Sorry for your loss but how dare you blame Trump! Absolutely disgraceful and your wonderful grandfather would probably feel the same way about your despicable behavior!’ one raged. 

Another wrote: ‘I am sorry for your loss. This is very weird to me- projecting blame for someone’s death? Unless someone actually pulls a trigger this is far fetched. Who should I blame for the countless relatives I have lost to cancer?’

However, Combs brushed off criticism about her controversial tweet, later posting: ‘Zero tolerance for Trumpers. Zero. Take it to someone else’s timeline. Not today Satan.’

Combs brushed off criticism about her controversial tweet just hours after announcing her grandfather’s passing 

Combs had lead roles in hit TV shows including Picket Fences and Pretty Little Liars, but is most famous for her role in Aaron Spelling’s teen drama, Charmed. 

The actress played Piper Halliwell in the supernatural series, which aired between 1998 and 2006. 

Like her Charmed co-stars, Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano, Combs has become an outspoken critic of the current Administration. 

In the days since announcing her grandfather’s death, she has continued to tweet constant criticism of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.  

As of Wednesday morning, more than one million Americans have tested positive to the virus, and 59,000 have died.

President Trump Says Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Must Pay for Security – Variety

President Trump Says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Must Pay for Own Security

After moving to the U.S. and leaving the royal family behind, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must now pay for their own security team, according to President Trump.

Before recently relocating to the U.S., the couple had been living in Canada under the watch and protection of British security and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The price of their security team was estimated to cost millions of dollars per year, but who is footing the bill in America is still up in the air.

However, Trump made it clear on Sunday that the U.S. will not provide any federal protection and the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex must pay on their own.

“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S., however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!” he tweeted.

Many people expect Markle, a former actor most known for her role on “Suits,” to return to her Hollywood roots. She’s already booked a narrating role for the Disneynature documentary “Elephant,” set to debut on Disney Plus on April 3. The project marks her first role since officially stepping away from the royal family duties.

De Niro takes shot at Trump as he accepts SAG lifetime award, | Daily Mail Online

Accepting a lifetime achievement award during Sunday’s annual Screen Actors Guild awards, actor Actor Robert De Niro took a veiled jab at US President Donald Trump.

The two-time Academy Award winner and star of Oscar-nominated mob film ‘The Irishman’, made his comments never once mentioning Trump by name, as the president faces a Senate trial this week on impeachment charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump was at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention and Trade Show in Austin, Texas, earlier in the day.

Stepping onto the stage to a rousing standing ovation and cheers at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, De Niro said, ‘there´s right, and there´s wrong and there’s common sense, and there´s abuse of power, and as a citizen I have as much right as anyone else … to voice my opinion.’ 

‘And if I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I´m going to use it whenever I see a blatant abuse of power. And that´s all I´m going say about that tonight,’ the actor added.

He then went on to thank his ‘comrades in arms’ for bestowing the life achievement honor, presented by the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Actors. An almost star-struck Leonardo DiCaprio had presented the award to De Niro.

Although known for his often-taciturn demeanor in public appearances while strictly guarding his private life, De Niro has emerged as one of Trump’s most vocal critics outside of political circles.

In 2018, he launched an expletive-laden attack on the president on live television as a presenter on stage of the Tony Awards. 

Trump responded on Twitter by calling De Niro ‘a very low-key individual’.

A versatile actor with more than 100 films to his credit, the 76-year-old De Niro’s biggest movies include dramas like ‘The Deer Hunter,’ ‘Raging Bull’ and ‘The Godfather: Part II’. 

He is also known for starring in comedies such as ‘Meet the Parents’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.

A frequent collaborator with his Irishman director, Martin Scorsese, De Niro built his career with haunting portrayals of loners and tough guys. 

He played a deranged ex-convict in ‘Cape Fear’, a disturbed vigilante in ‘Taxi Driver’, a disillusioned Vietnam War veteran in ‘Deer Hunter’, and a ruthless gangster in ‘Goodfellas,’ all directed by Scorsese, whom he considers a close friend.

De Niro also is co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, established to help revitalize lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11 attacks that reduced the World Trade Center to ruins.

De Niro has been overlooked this awards season for his acting turn as hitman Frank Sheeran in the mob film ‘The Irishman’, but recouped as one of the producers of the movie when it received an Oscar nomination for best picture

The method actor and perfectionist attended the Stella Adler Conservatory and the American Workshop and, as well as trained under Lee Strasberg, the acclaimed actor and director. De Niro quickly earned a reputation for intense preparation.

He learned to speak a Sicilian dialect to play the young mobster Vito Corleone in ‘The Godfather: Part II,’ a role that earned him his first Oscar in 1975. And he famously gained 60 pounds, or 27 kilos, for his second Oscar-winning performance as boxing great Jake LaMotta in 1980’s ‘Raging Bull’.

He also found success playing his hard-bitten screen image for laughs, in such comedic roles as an insecure mob boss in ‘Analyze This’ and a retired CIA operative in ‘Meet the Fockers’.

De Niro has been largely overlooked this awards season for his acting turn as hitman Frank Sheeran in The Irishman, but recouped as one of the producers of the film, when it received an Oscar nomination for best picture.

De Niro joins previous SAG lifetime recipients including Alan Alda, Elizabeth Taylor, Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood and Debbie Reynolds.

Vince Vaughn and Trump: Actor receives backlash for chatting with president and Melania at college championship football game – CBS News

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump watched LSU and Clemson battle it out for the college football championship in New Orleans on Monday night – and they were seated near another famous face. Actor Vince Vaughn also attended the game, and was seen chatting with the president and first lady.

The Trumps were greeted with cheers as they took the field for the national anthem before the game. Some fans cheered “USA, USA,” and others chanted, “Four more years,” according to the Associated Press.

Video captured by another fan showed the Trumps shaking hands with Vaughn, and then having a conversation with him as the rest of the stadium sang “Sweet Caroline.” While there is no audio of their conversation, it appeared to be pleasant, with Mr. Trump shaking the actor’s hand and smiling.

“I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it,” journalist Timothy Burke wrote on Twitter, sharing the video of the interaction.

His sentiment was shared by other social media users, who criticized the 49-year-old actor for mingling with the president. Other social media users supported the actor, and some were impartial to the situation, saying it was just an actor meeting the president and having a “civil conversation.”

Vaughn is a libertarian and is friends with Rand Paul, who he supported his presidential bids, according to several reports.  It is unclear who he voted for during the 2016 presidential election.

Another celebrity was recently criticized for mingling with a president during a sporting event. Elle DeGeneres was spotted laughing with former President George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys game in October 2019. Video of the unlikely pair received some negative attention, which DeGeneres addressed during the monologue of her talk show.

She acknowledged that “people were upset,” and “they thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president? And they didn’t even know I was holding the brand new iPhone 11.” All joking aside, DeGeneres said the moral of the story is: “We’re all different. And I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s OK that we’re all different.”

Vaughn, who does not have a public social media presence, has not responded to the backlash following his interaction with the president. CBS News has reached out for comment.
