About 500 Muslims, including young children, took part in a peace march from a mosque to the site of the Manchester Arena bombing, where 22 people were killed by a suicide bomber as they left an Ariana Grande concert. “That’s the image we want to show — that we are a part of society campaigning against the terrorist,” Moin Azmi, a spokesman for the mosque, told the Manchester Evening News. “Children were killed when they should have been having fun.” The marchers also left flowers and notes for the victims. About 15 percent of Greater Manchester’s population of 2.5 million is Muslim, according to the Los. »

The 13 Tackiest Cannes PR Stunts, From Blake Lively’s Sharks to Sacha Baron Cohen’s Mankini (Photos)

1 hour ago

Cannes, the glamorous festival, has seen some crazy PR stunts over the years, from Sacha Baron Cohen’s mankini to Blake Lively’s fake sharks. Faux “Terror Raid” to Promote Oraxy Guests at Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc got a surprise visit by men outfitted in militia-themed gear last year, approaching the hotel by boat. Later, it was revealed it was a publicity stunt for the Paris-based Oraxy, which describes itself as “the world’s first private global marketplace reserved exclusively for Uhnwi,” or Ultra High Net Worth Individuals. Sacha Baron Cohen Wears Green Gross Mankini In 2006, Sacha Baron Cohen sported a bright green male thong. »

‘You Were Never Really Here’ Cannes Review: Grim Joaquin Phoenix Puzzler Ends Competition

1 hour ago

More of a collection of accomplished filmmaking moments than a wholly satisfying film, “You Were Never Really Here” offers an unfamiliar spin on a well-known style. Adapting Jonathan Ames’ 2013 novella that itself was a sideways riff on the hardboiled detective genre, writer/director Lynne Ramsay picks up Ames’ slanted approach and moves it even further afield. Instead of subverting hardboiled structure – where a jaded old timer accepts a seemingly open and shut case, only to be ensnared in a wider web of corruption – Ramsay readily accepts it, but tells the recognizable tale with terse abstraction. Which is to say »

Snapchat’s ‘Phone Swap’ Perfectly Taps My Millennial Angst

2 hours ago

Snap Inc. — the tech company that founded messaging app Snapchat  — continues to roll out its slate of original content with Friday’s release of the second episode of “Phone Swap,” the self-described “super awkward dating show.” The show is simple, but that’s why it works: Two young singles show up for a date, where they’re forced to exchange phones and then immediately go in separate directions. They take turns checking out what type of cringe-worthy content they can find, while the other person sits in a booth and comments on their discoveries. And despite the anxiety it caused me, »

Can ‘Game of Thrones’ Beer Dull the Pain of Season 7 Delay? (Video)

4 hours ago

Normally by this point in May, we’d be almost halfway through the latest season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Sadly, because winter has finally arrived in Westeros, production on the show was delayed in 2016 to allow for filming during actual snowy weather. Which means, of course, that “Game of Thrones” Season 7 won’t air until mid-July. Like many of you, we’re pretty sad about having to wait longer than usual for our Seven Kingdoms fix and desperate to fill the void with something, anything. Fortunately, “anything” turned out to be “Bend the Knee Golden Ale,” the latest beer from. »

How Trump’s Attacks on the Media Turned Into Literal Attacks on the Media

5 hours ago

Katy Tur felt the crowd turn. As Donald Trump scolded the NBC reporter from the stage, calling her “little Katy” because he didn’t like her coverage, the Trump supporters around her began to feel “like a large animal, angry and unchained.” The Secret Service felt the tension too: Agents took the unusual step of escorting her to her car. The December 2015 speech in Mount Pleasant, N.Y. was just a preview of things to come. Since Trump’s election, the attacks on reporters have gotten physical. On Thursday, Republican Greg Gianforte won a Montana congressional election despite being charged »

5 hours ago

Fox News host Sean Hannity responded to a Friday morning attack from “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough, mocking the MSNBC rival’s ratings and relationship with his co-anchor and fiancee Mika Brzezinski. “Lol, Joe and Mika are so cute together. Do they hold hands under the desk?” Hannity told Mediaite via email. “That would be the only reason to watch the low rated daily emotional breakdowns they have.” Earlier on Friday, Scarborough bashed the Fox News host for continuing to trumpet conspiracy theories about former Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich, who was murdered in Washington, D.C., last summer and has been the centerpiece. »

A certain fictitious politician is not the biggest fan of Piers Morgan, as seen in the “Love Actually” reunion. The segment entitled “Red Nose Day Actually” aired Thursday on NBC as part of its “Red Nose Day Special,” and the reunion for the popular 2003 film included Hugh Grant’s Prime Minister character, David, squeezing in a dig at the expense of the British TV personality. “Obviously, times for many people have got harder, and people are nervous and fearful. And it’s not just in politics that things are tough,” the P.M. said during a press conference. “Usain Bolt has run his last Olympics, »

Elon Musk‘s “The Boring Company” — which has its sights set on solving Los Angeles traffic through a network of underground tunnels — continues to tease the masses, releasing new pictures of the futuristic buses that’ll dart people around town earlier today.

The former First Lady and presidential candidate talked about her mistrust in authority in the midst of the Vietnam War when she was graduated in 1969. Clinton recalled she and other students “were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.” The parallel was clear: President Trump recently fired FBI Director James Comey, »

Cartoon Network Voice Star Zach Callison Talks Growing Up With ‘Steven Universe’

6 hours ago

When “Steven Universe” started on Cartoon Network four years ago, its titular character was a silly, carefree boy (voiced by Zach Callison) singing about the glory of Cookie Cats and his longing to see his alien friends, the Crystal Gems, turn into a Giant Woman. But while he’s kept his fun-loving, kind-hearted spirit intact over the years, he’s had a lot of tough maturing moments to go through. Over the past year, “Steven Universe” has put Steven’s search for purpose front and center as the idealistic image he preserved of his late mother, Rose Quartz, was chipped away. »
