Others are citing even worse behavior from *Evil Alexa*, including their devices whistling(!), reciting the definition of “please” in response to a command(!!), and even apparently listing off local cemeteries(!!?).
Amazon responded to the deviant behavior in a statement to The Verge, saying the company is “aware of this and working to fix it.” Maybe just unplug (and BURN) all your echos until then, yeah?
Take a look (below) read the unsettling reports and hear the evil Alexa laughter for yourself!
“Why don’t you tell the world what you were doing during my entire Fox & Friends hit? Oh I know, chewing on her damn bone as loud as she possibly could. So I had to kick her about five times during the show.”
As seen here:
Later that day, TMZ photogs caught the Fox News contributor at LAX where they questioned her about the controversial clip. The 25-year-old insists it was all a “joke,” as she “[loves her] dog more than anything in the world.” She said:
“I think people are pretty logical and they understand it was a joke… Anyone who knows me knows I love my dog more than anything in the world… Slow news day for you guys, isn’t it?”
In response, PETA‘s senior director of cruelty casework Stephanie Bell said in a statement:
“Only a heartless person would kick a dog just for doing what dogs normally do — and a reasonable person would simply have moved out of the way or moved the animal.”
No animals were harmed in the writing of this post.
In regards to how she settled on the unique name, the It-girl told People:
“Her name’s [Hershela]. My boyfriend named her … I kind of just ran with it. It made me laugh. I liked Hershey and he liked Hershela, so it was like a middle ground.”
Awwwww. As to why Lord Disick got the honor of naming the puppy, the 19-year-old explained that since the father-of-three got her the pup, he should have a hand in naming it. She continued:
“He wanted the dog for a while, but he ended up surprising me with it.”
And it appears that Miz Richie is already in love with the little animal. The up-and-comer even gushed:
“I am obsessed with wiener dogs, so I’ve just been sitting at home staring at her all day like a psychopath. I think this is like my first proper outing since I got her.”
However, it seems like not everyone is informed that Scott bought the animal for his lady love. Recently, Kim Kardashian West had a Snapchat session with the dog, and claimed that the animal belonged to Disick’s daughter Penelope (below). Either Keeks is being SUPER shady and isn’t acknowledging Sofia’s existence or the KUWTK vet has kept some info to himself.
Additionally, a source told Page Six on Thursday that the social media personality has “driven a wedge” between the 55-year-old rocker and his close circle of friends.
That night, the actress spoke out, telling Page Six via email:
“This is so awful… Every time a friend calls, I encourage him to go see them, to hang out. HE decides what he wants to do. Not me. We just went to Cabo with some friends…. When people first fall in love they tend to spend a lot of time together. That’s just how it is. It is Tommy who makes his own decisions, I don’t tell him what to do. He’s a grown man.”
Um, yeah! Absolutely. He is a grown man.
In fact, Furlan says she is the one who got the musician into therapy as she calls the entire situation:
“sad and I’m very hurt that I’m being blamed when I’ve only ever tried to help… I love Tommy, have always only wanted the best for him, I am wishing peace for all involved.”
Lee told TMZ on Thursday that although he “[drinks] more than the average Joe,” he is not a “deviant alcoholic abuser.”
After the violent confrontation on Monday night, Furlan called 911 and told the emergency dispatcher that Lee was knocked out unconscious and was bleeding from his mouth. She also feared the “guns” in Brandon’s room.
The couple announced their engagement in February. Fans who follow Brittany and Tommy are shocked by the allegations, as avid followers of their Insta Stories (and let’s be real, they do A LOT of Insta Stories) have only ever seen seemingly happy, coherent footage of their relationship — mostly cooking for each other, trying to get their dogs out of the restroom… you know, usual and normal shit!
“I told him, ‘Some of it’s not helpful, it causes distraction. We can get thrown off our message by tweeting things that aren’t the issues of the day.’ Everybody tried at different times to cool down the Twitter habit — but no one could do it. Not me, Jared, Ivanka, Hope.”
He added that Melania wasn’t able to get through to her husband either:
“After the joint session, we all talked to him and Melania said, ‘No tweeting.’ And he said, ‘OK — for the next few days.’ We had many discussions involving this issue. We had meetings in the residence. I couldn’t stop it.”
Wow, we actually have a four year old as president. It’s astonishing, really.
As you know, Catt Sadlerquit E! News after getting a tip that her male counterpart, Jason Kennedy, was making over double her salary — even when she was doing two more shows than him a week! The patriarchy’s a bitch, y’all.
Anywho, the mother of two stood her ground and took the huge risk of walking out the door — and now she’s one of the most prominent faces of the Time’s Up movement. Werk.
Now the question is… what’s next for the longtime journalist?
This week, the 43-year-old replied to a fan on Twitter (in a now-deleted tweet) teasing a possible return to TV on March 4 — which just so happens to be the date of the Oscars. Further, in a new interview with Cosmopolitan, the host said not to “count her out” for awards season.
Sometimes, acceptance is found where you least expect it.
That was the case for World War II veteran John Banvard (above, left) and his husband Gerard “Jerry” Nadeau (above, right), a Vietnam vet, who expected backlash from fellow residents after tying the knot at the veterans home where they lived.
Thankfully, the couple was pleasantly surprised by how accepting the other vets at their Chula Vista, California nursing home were, despite having been previously confused about what John and Jerry’s relationship was.
While they remained coy about their love story for years, the military veterans have been together for “almost 25 years,” and were both “sort of” in the closet when they met back in 1993.
Speaking on NPR‘s Morning Edition radio show on Friday, the 100-year-old John explained:
“When we met, we were sort of in the closet, and I’d never had a real relationship.”
At the time, John’s wife of over 35 years had died almost a decade prior and he had never been in a serious relationship with a man. Neither had Jerry.
Although the two had different interests — John was an art and theater geek while Jerry was an outdoorsman — the pair hit it off and fell in love.
It wasn’t until 2013, after three years of living together, did the vets decide to take the next step in their relationship: getting married in a casual ceremony at the nursing home where they lived, with hot dogs served as the main course!
Though John was “expecting we’d be ridiculed,” he was happy to find the other vets were accepting of their love. Remembering one sweet moment when another resident introduced the couple to his family, the 72-year-old Jerry said:
“I was with you in the cafeteria, and somebody came up with their family, and they said, ‘This is Gerard Nadeau, and this is his husband, John.'”
Jerry explained that this was the first time he had heard John referred to as his husband.
Awww, true love really is worth the wait! Acceptance shouldn’t have to be — but better late than never, right?
On Monday, the mother of three’s husband David Eason appeared to go on a rant on Twitter, which featured homophobic language and pro gun rhetoric. Specifically, the Teen Mom 2 star referred to those in the LGBTQ community as “abominations.” Just awful.
While Eason’s account has since been taken down, alleged screenshots of the derogatory posts have circulated around the internet. Apparently, during a debate on whether those with concealed carry permits should be allowed to bring guns onto school property, Eason was accused of “glorifying assault rifles” and was advised to teach his kids “how to solve problems without calling people names or using force.”
In response, David hit back with:
“And just what makes you think you have the right to tell me how to be a parent? Because you think you know me? Lmao why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot that’s supposed to be normal.”
SERIOUSLY?!?!? Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Just sayin’…
When asked if he was teaching his children to hate gay and transgender people, Eason noted:
“No, I’m going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way. If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”
Understandably, those in the Teen Mom community are displeased with David’s behavior, with some even calling for his removal from the show. Jenelle and David’s costar Kailyn Lowry led the charge, as she shared online:
I’m absolutely disturbed by the comments David made regarding gay & transgender parents. — Kailyn Lowry (@KailLowry) February 19, 2018
People are removed from shows for comments like that. — Kailyn Lowry (@KailLowry) February 19, 2018
Miz Lowry confirmed her sentiment to TMZ, as she informed them that she wants Eason off TM2 and to stay far away from her family. She also added that she feels bad for his children for having to “grow up with someone that clearly holds so much hate towards others.”
Kailyn wasn’t alone in her criticism, as Leah Messer also weighed in on the scandal:
This is not the example we should be setting for our youth. I have many trustworthy and hardworking individuals that are Gay and Lesbians. They are outstanding individuals. I proud to have them on my team. This is actually embarrassing to see someone say this. #TeenMomOG#LGBT — Simon (@SimonSaran) February 19, 2018
What a fucking idiot that’s all I’m saying lmao — Jeremy calvert (@jcalvert505) February 19, 2018
Disgusting. Who the hell is he to judge ?! Some of the nicest people I know are gay. How could someone be married to a guy like that😳 https://t.co/Yha7VTZ9TA — Lindsey (@LilMamaLinds) February 19, 2018
A Change.org petition has since been launched to encourage MTV to fire Mr. and Mrs. Eason. You can find it HERE!!
