Chris Brown’s mother reached out to the family of the Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to die of Ebola in the U.S. last week. According to Brian Curtis, a Dallas-Fort Worth reporter/anchor, Chris’ mom called on behalf of the Brown family to offer help. Late last night, Chris tweeted his thoughts on the outbreak, which has killed more than 4,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, according to the World Health Organization. I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control.

Both tweets have not been deleted since they were posted earlier this morning.

“The Walking Dead” is back for its fifth season — and has already been renewed for a sixth! The Walking Dead, like most television series that strive for greatness, has been able to operate on different levels for different viewers. Part of that is the construct, of course – people love mobsters (The Sopranos) in the same way they love zombies or any other inherently action-based creation. As long as there’s enough of that surface distraction for a certain audience, then deviations into morality and existentialism are more or less tolerated. Those issues are, however, what makes great shows work. There have been a lot of creative zombie movies with variations on the theme of what it means to be human in a dark new world, but let’s not kid ourselves — essentially they are two hours of running like hell in an effort to not be eaten. Episodes like…Continue Reading

Snapchat hackers planning to leak around 200,000 explicit images tomorrow. Named ‘The Snappening’ (Just like the iCloud hack of celebrity photos called ‘The Fappening’) Some 200,000 users of the app, many of whom are teenagers, have allegedly had their photos gathered by the third party over a number of years before the pictures were posted on a website. Users claim that they hacked into third-party app Snapsave, which enables Snapchatters to screenshot the images they receive in order to keep pictures which would otherwise expire. Snapchat has denied that its servers were jeopardised in the alleged attack. “We can confirm that Snapchat’s servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks,” Snapchat said in a statement (via Endgadget). “Snapchatters were victimised by their use of third-party apps to send and receive Snaps, a practice that we expressly prohibit in our Terms of Use precisely because they compromise…Continue Reading
Iwan Rheon has admitted that he was disappointed to see the planned Misfits movie scrapped. DigitalSpy Reports that Antonia Thomas recently confirmed that a mooted film spinoff from the E4 series is no longer happening.   ” It looked like it was really going to happen at one stage, but it’s gone away now,” Rheon – who played Simon on the show – confirmed to Digital Spy. “I don’t know exactly why or what’s going on.” Misfits creator Howard Overman first revealed that he was working on a movie version in 2012, hinting at appearances from both Rheon’s character and Thomas’s Alisha. “It would’ve been nice to do for old time’s sake,” Rheon said. “It’s been a while now since we did it and it would’ve been nice to work with [the old cast] again.” Last year, Rheon told DS that Misfits would “be a really fun thing to go back and revisit”. “In a way, I…Continue Reading
