Jimmy Kimmel Didn’t Have to Do This Brooklyn Interview (But He Did)
Jimmy Kimmel had every right to cancel this interview.

Whenever Kimmel brings his late-night ABC show to the east coast for one of its popular week-long runs in Brooklyn, he does a little publicity on the Saturday before things kick off. He doesn’t have a lot of time. Kimmel wrapped a Thursday broadcast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” from California and touched down in New York on Friday. Now there’s a lot to get done: The stage of Howard Gilman Opera House at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, which a massive crew is working on all weekend, must be set by Monday evening.

A live audience has been booked. Scheduled guests include Cardi B., Adam Sandler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. And Google is set to sponsor the entire run – the first time ABC has enlisted an advertiser to do a week-long deal for the show’s Brooklyn trip.

Funny or Die Co-Founder Adam McKay Exits Company
Adam Mckay, who founded Funny or Die with Will Ferrel and Chris Henchy in 2007, quietly stepped down from the company earlier this year, Vulture reported Friday.

In a statement provided to Vulture, McKay said his decision was prompted by a wish to focus on person projects. But he also hinted that disagreements over recent business also played a role.

“Lately, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to stories and projects that mean a lot to me — big money, corporate entanglements and global warming. Given Funny Or Die is driven by ad revenues, I felt the time had come for me to step down,” McKay told Vulture. “I have to say I love what we created at Funny or Die and all the really fun collaborators, and I wish them the very best for the future.

“Ad revenues” appears to refer back to a disagreement McKay had with Fod in January,

Sarah Silverman Shares Anti-Semitic Mel Gibson Quote Protesting His Upcoming ‘Wild Bunch’ Remake

Mel Gibson’s various controversies, of which there are many, happened primarily between 2005 and 2011. As odd as it is to think about that, the era in which he sexually harassed a police officer, yelled racist slurs, and was caught on tape verbally abusing and harassing his partner all occurred before this current #MeToo climate, and therefore, seem to have been swept under the rug, so to speak. While Roman Polanski gets kicked out of the Academy and Woody Allen can’t seem to finance a film, Gibson has continued to chug along, earning more and more acting and directing gigs.

Warner Bros. has hired Mel Gibson to co-write and direct its upcoming remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1969 Western “The Wild Bunch,” but the news wasn’t exactly met with cheers on social media. Gibson has a history of controversial behavior, ranging from making anti-Semitic comments to being convicted of battering his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. The director’s past reemerged on social media in reaction to his high profile new directing gig.

Sarah Silverman took to Twitter to call out Gibson’s anti-Semitic past, sharing an article about Gibson’s “Wild Bunch” remake with a caption that read, “Fucking Jews. The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” The words are Gibson’s own from when he was pulled over in 2006 for speeding and drunk driving.
