'A Dog's Purpose' Picketed by PETA We Will Shame the Audience

1/23/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0122-peta-protest-a-dogs-purpose-TMZ-GETTY-01People who want to see "A Dog's Purpose" will be greeted by animal rights activists and taunted if they buy tickets and enter the theater.

PETA organizers tell TMZ they have plans to hit theaters across the country ... protesting the treatment of the animal actors in the flick. As you know, the controversy erupted after TMZ posted video of a German Shepherd in distress when a handler tried to pull the canine into the water.

The studio says the dog was treated humanely throughout the filming and the 40 second incident was harmless ... the dog was willing to go in the water but got freaked out because producers changed the point of entry.

We're told the picketers will be reminiscent of striking union workers, protesting scabs who attempt to cross the picket line.

The studio already canceled the Hollywood premiere and press junkets for fear of violence by animal rights groups.

The movie opens Friday.

Kim Kardashian I've Got A Plan ... My Kimojis Are Gonna Take Over The Retail World

1/23/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1120_kimoji_store_compositeKim Kardashian wants to bring her Kimoji gear to stores ... and pretty soon we could see shops all across the world. 

Kim's company filed docs asking to expand her famous Kimoji brand to include retail stores that would sell apparel, makeup bags, stickers, jewelry, accessories and a slew of other items. 

Sources close to Kim tell us plans are in the early stages, but there's a good chance Kim's plan will include global pop-up shops to hawk the gear ... just like hubby Kanye did for his Yeezy clothing line and little sis Kylie has for her makeup line.

The Kimoji brand has been insanely successful, but the gear has only been limited to online sales ... so Kim's looking to take on the retail world too.

'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood' Star Off The Hook In Uber Battery Case

1/23/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-teairra-mari-tmz-02Teairra Mari just had her Uber beatdown case dropped ... because the driver refused to take the stand.

Prosecutors moved to dismiss 3 charges against the "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star for allegedly beating the hell out of a driver and stealing his charger ... the judge agreed and tossed the case.

More good news for Mari ... according to court docs, her $26k bail money was returned. You'll recall ... Mari was a wanted woman this past summer when she was a no-show in court, but she got her act together and surrendered to cops.

As for why the driver flaked ... Mari's attorney, Lonnie Brandon, tells us the driver knew his story wouldn't hold water.

Either way ... Mari's a free woman again. We're also guessing she switched to Lyft.

EXCLUSIVE

0120-jax-taylor-brittany-cartwright-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01"Vanderpump Rules" stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are getting their own reality TV spin-off ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Bravo -- which will air the series -- tell us they started filming a new show for Jax and GF Brittany a few months ago in Kentucky ... where her family lives.

We're told the focus of the show will be Brittany's family pressuring her to get hitched to the 'Vanderpump' bad boy ... but he's just not into sealing the deal.

Jax is a notorious player on 'Vanderpump,' and a commitment-phobe ... unclear if he's sold on the idea of marriage.

Bravo has one big fear ... that they won't be together by the time this thing airs in the summer.

Tomi Lahren 'Intolerant Left Tried to Beat My Ass' At Inauguration

1/22/2017 7:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren says it's no wonder a lot of Donald Trump supporters were no-shows at the inauguration, because she says she was attacked by a left wing mob right in the street.

We got the super conservative talk show host in D.C. Saturday night, where she mocked what she called the "loving, intolerant left."

She says the viciousness in the air is why the Trump crowd was smaller than other inaugurations.

Take a look at the pics of each, and then compare it (below) to Trump's, and judge for yourself.
