Vili Fualaau Allegedly Bet He Could Have Sex With Teacher Mary Kay

 

Even though Mary Kay Letourneau was 34 and raising four children with then-husband Steven Letourneau, that didn’t stop 12-year-old Vili Fualaau from allegedly making a bet with one of his friends, claiming that he could seduce her.

“I think what was motivating him was he was a young, pubescent boy who was lusting after the hot teacher and thought ‘I can do this,’” says Linda Byron Lippingcott, former reporter at KING-TV, in the clip.

In Reelz’s latest Scandal me Famous episode, Mary Kay Letourneau, interviews from media professionals tell all on the controversial teacher-student affair that shocked the nation in 1996.

“There are some people that think ‘look, you can’t do that, she’s predatory, he’s a little boy,’ and then there are people who feel that at 13, 14, some boys kind of knew what they wanted, and they were very curious about sex and who they could experience things with,” says Former Newsday Reporter, A.J. Benza, in the video.

A Male Massage Therapist Says John Travolta Sexually Assaulted Him in the Steam Room

 

adar Online published a police report from 2000 that reveals that actor John Travolta was accused of “sexual battery” by a male masseur. This isn’t the first accusation of sexual harassment and assault made against the actor — several other masseurs and other men in similar positions have filed lawsuits against Travolta throughout the years. In the wake of the accusations against Harvey Weinstein, it has become clear that victims of sexual assault and harassment are being taken more seriously now than ever before and that finally these predators will be held accountable for their actions.

Paradise Papers leak reveals secrets of the world elite’s hidden wealth

Paradise Papers leak reveals secrets of the world elite’s hidden wealth

The world’s biggest businesses, heads of state and global figures in politics, entertainment and sport who have sheltered their wealth in secretive tax havens are being revealed this week in a major new investigation into Britain’s offshore empires.

The details come from a leak of 13.4m files that expose the global environments in which tax abuses can thrive – and the complex and seemingly artificial ways the wealthiest corporations can legally protect their wealth.

The material, which has come from two offshore service providers and the company registries of 19 tax havens, was obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists with partners including the Guardian, the BBC and the New York Times.

The project has been called the Paradise Papers. It reveals:

The disclosures will put pressure on world leaders, including Trump and the British prime minister, Theresa May, who have both pledged to curb aggressive tax avoidance schemes.

The publication of this investigation, for which more than 380 journalists have spent a year combing through data that stretches back 70 years, comes at a time of growing global income inequality.

Meanwhile, multinational companies are shifting a growing share of profits offshore – €600bn in the last year alone – the leading economist Gabriel Zucman will reveal in a study to be published later this week.

“Tax havens are one of the key engines of the rise in global inequality,” he said. “As inequality rises, offshore tax evasion is becoming an elite sport.”

At the centre of the leak is Appleby, a law firm with outposts in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey. In contrast to Mossack Fonseca, the discredited firm at the centre of last year’s Panama Papers investigation, Appleby prides itself on being a leading member of the “magic circle” of top-ranking offshore service providers.

It acted for the establishment offshore, providing the structures that helped to legally reduce their tax bills.

Appleby says it has investigated all the allegations, and found “there is no evidence of any wrongdoing, either on the part of ourselves or our clients”, adding: “We are a law firm which advises clients on legitimate and lawful ways to conduct their business. We do not tolerate illegal behaviour.”

Larry David’s Holocaust Joke on SNL Earns Criticism

Larry David’s Holocaust Joke on SNL Earns Criticism

 


Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David has come under fire for doing a Holocaust joke during his SNL monologue Saturday night. David’s monologue also featured a joke about Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer at the center of the recent storm of sexual misconduct allegations rocking the entertainment industry.

Comedians often use the SNL monologue as an opportunity to push the envelope of good taste, and occasionally get burned for it. In 2015, the ever-edgy Louis C.K. received criticism for a monologue bit that took on the always-touchy subject of child molestation. In perhaps the most notorious case of a monologue gone off-the-rails, Martin Lawrence in 1994 went on an inexplicable tirade about feminine hygiene, a decision that would haunt the comedian for years to come. In a rare case of someone being ripped for going too positive, Dave Chappelle drew fire in 2016 when he suggested that newly-elected president Donald Trump should be given more of a chance from his critics, a position Chappelle would later do a complete 180 on (he would also later win an Emmy for his hosting gig).

Larry David’s own questionable monologue, filled with jokes that might have seemed funnier back in the ’80s when the comedian was trying to make it as a stand-up (a career he would eventually abandon), may have already felt like a slow-motion trainwreck before arriving at the Holocaust bit. The joke’s premise, about a man trying to get a date with a woman in a concentration camp, was problematic to start with and David arguably didn’t do himself any favors with the way he played out the routine. Twitter wasted no time in jumping on David’s back for his ill-conceived attempt at mining one of history’s greatest tragedies for SNL laughs. View the monologue above, and sample some of the backlash below:

In addition to the Holocaust humor, David’s routine also featured material about the Hunchback of Notre Dame, in which David perhaps ill-advisedly attempted an impersonation of the deformed literary and film character. David also tackled Harvey Weinstein (a subject SNL had deliberately shied away from previously), noting along the way that Weinstein and many of the other major Hollywood figures being accused of sexual misconduct are Jewish (David is himself Jewish).

Last night’s SNL is receiving low marks overall from Sunday morning critics. Most were not impressed by David’s performance, even though he brought out his normally well-received Bernie Sanders impression. Even Alec Baldwin showing up as Donald Trump in a skit that also included Kate McKinnon as a “half-possum” Jeff Sessions complete with prehensile tail was not enough to rescue the episode in the eyes of critics. Perhaps things will pick up next week when Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish hosts, with Taylor Swift as musical guest.

David likely won’t be winning any Emmys for hosting SNL last night, but the comedian is still going strong on HBO with season 9 of his legendary comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, a venue where his sometimes aggressively non-PC humor manages to land with a lot more accuracy than on SNL.
