If you want to get a gander as to where our narcissistic, snowflake culture is at these days, actress Kelly Marie Tran just scored a full-blown Hollywood Reporter cover story for — get this — “surviving” mean tweets. You remember Kelly Marie Tran, the poor woman stuck with that awful Rose Tico role in 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rose Tico is not Tran’s fault. She didn’t create that dreadful, humorless, self-righteous character.

Nevertheless, the unfair world being what it is, she was still hit with some of the blowback, and now we’re being asked to celebrate her fearlessness for “surviving” mean tweets. Here are some lowlights in an article titled: “The Resurrection of Kelly Marie Tran: On Surviving ‘Star Wars’ Bullying, the Pressures of Representation, and ‘Raya and the … [Read more...] about Nolte: Rich, Privileged Kelly Marie Tran Hailed for ‘Surviving’ Mean Tweets

It’s the charge a jury found former MPD officer Mohammed Noor guilty of in the murder of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. The court … [Read more...] about Expert: What An Additional 3rd-Degree Murder Charge Could Mean For Derek Chauvin
