'Tonight Show' cancels Norm Macdonald after MeToo comments

"The Tonight Show" canceled an appearance by Norm Macdonald after criticism of his comments about the MeToo movement and fellow comedians Louis C.K. and Roseanne Barr. In a statement, NBC said it canceled Tuesday's appearance "out of sensitivity to our audience." The former "Saturday Night Live" cast member told The Hollywood Reporter he was "happy the # MeToo movement had slowed down a little bit." Macdonald said people used to receive a second chance, but now "there is no forgiveness."

Single colour, dual role

White on White is already a killer combination to sport. But this season, designers went one step ahead and added another layer of white to the outfits. This trend is perfect for anyone who wants to look angelic without having to put in a lot of effort. Bollywood starlets like Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor have all experimented with this ethereal colour. “Visually this colour is very beautiful. It tends to create a sort of wispy and angelic look and it is a great contrast to trends like Dhoti pants which are also fun. This look will take...

Mix and match with finesse!

Facts and fake news cuddle up

The running battle between the liberals and the bhakts is the spice of twitter space. We seem so sharply divided along political lines now that the opposing groups are just waiting to troll each other the moment they smell an opening. And Mohandas Pai, an IT veteran who is now an academician, left himself open to ridicule by quoting an obvious fake site with regard to an Indian political party being among the most corrupt in the world. No tweet testimonial may be needed for a party to be thought corrupt and Indians ones probably as much as the ‘best’...

Cosby to fight 'sexually violent predator' tag at sentencing

Bill Cosby's sentencing hearing Monday will begin with testimony about his sex offender evaluation and, presumably, a fierce debate over whether the 81-year-old actor should be branded a sexually violent predator. The stakes are high given the lifetime counseling, community alerts and public shaming the designation would trigger. And it could become evidence in the defamation lawsuits filed against Cosby by accusers who say he branded them liars when he denied molesting them. Defense lawyers say the state's latest sex-reporting law, despite several revisions, remains unconstitutional. "It's the modern-day version of a scarlet letter," said lawyer Demetra Mehta, a former...
