Kim Kardashian conspiracy rumors

Kanye West was The Meadows festival headliner, but he abruptly cut his set short when his assistant delivered the news: Kim Kardashian had been robbed at gunpoint.

Details spread that two robbers had broken in, tied up Kardashian, and reportedly stole near $11 million in jewelry, including her $4.5 million wedding ring, and two smartphones. She returned to New York almost immediately, reuniting with husband Kanye.

The internet showed its truest self when, upon hearing this news, reacted with kindness and empathy.

Shit, I always forget how the internet works. Instead people reacted with multiple conspiracy theories of why the robbery went down.

Like Kim staging a publicity stunt:

LeBron James endorses Hillary Clinton

Some athletes choose to stay far away from politics of any kind, including endorsing presidential candidates. As Michael Jordan famously said, “Republicans buy sneakers, too.” Considering the added backlash and uproar capable in the social media era, it’s no surprise athletes often remove themselves from the conversation.

Which is why LeBron James’ endorsement as Hillary Clinton comes as a bit of a surprise. Not only did the man endorse her, he wrote an op-ed explaining why for the Akron Beach Journal.

“I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama. I believe in what President Obama has done for our country and support her commitment to continuing that legacy.”

He also cited building a strong foundation for his kids and addressing violence in the African-American community as influences on his endorsement.

And to all the critics and haters who tell LeBron he should just stick to playing basketball, he has a message for you:

Ben Affleck names new superhero flick “The Batman”

During a press junket for The Accountant, Ben Affleck’s new psycho thriller with Anna Kendrick, reporters seemed keen on asking the actor/director on another movie. That movie of course being Batman.

Here’s what Affleck had to say:

“The movie I think is going to be called The Batman. At least that’s what we’re going with right now. I might change it… That’s about all I got right now. We’re working on the script, the script is going well, I’m really excited about it.”

This comes in addition to reports that Affleck and collaborator Geoff Johns are trying to make “the ultimate Batman movie.” As Birth.Movies.Death reports, expect to see all your favorite villains from Bats’ Rogues Gallery, as they’ll all make an appearance some way or another.

Let’s just hope this ends better than previous DC movie efforts. I can’t see Sad Affleck again. It’s too sad.
