McKayla Maroney Thank You Michael Phelps You're the NEW Meme King!

8/9/2016 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Finally, McKayla Maroney IS impressed -- telling TMZ Sports she loves the new Michael Phelps death stare meme ... and says it takes her spot as the BEST Olympic funny face. 

Of course, Maroney became a viral LEGEND back in 2012 thanks to the whole "not impressed" thing -- so, we had to hit her up to get her take on the new Phelps pic taking the Internet by storm. 

0809-michael-phelps-mckaylasad-nbc-01"I now see why people thought (the memes were) so funny," Maroney says. 

"Somebody tweeted like, 'McKayla looks like somebody took your spot' ... and I looked at his pictures and was like YES! Go Michael, take it away please!"

Looks like she got her wish!

8/9/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even Jim Carrey is impressed with his Russian look-alike ... but he's not quite ready to turn the tables on the guy.

We got Jim at LAX Monday and asked about his doppelganger, who's caught fire on social media.

Jim's a pro's pro when it comes to imitations ... but playing a Ruski ... that's a tall order.

8/8/2016 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tinder didn't work out for Zac Efron ... but there still might be hope for the everyday Janes of the world.  

We caught Zac at LAX and asked him if he'd seriously consider downgrading his selection of potential baes. He's short on words ... but very clear.  

Keep on swiping, ladies.

8/4/2016 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Blake Griffin is f****** hilarious ... and here's video proof.

The L.A. Clippers superstar took the stage at the Just For Laughs event in Montreal last week and flexed his comedy skills for the crowd ... and we gotta say, he drew some pretty big laughs.

Blake's no stranger to the funny business ... having taken classes at a UCB Theatre in L.A. ... but this time his material was WAYYYYY more Richard Pryor than usual, including a story about bangin' a stripper.

Check out the video!!

Mariah Carey I Have People to Carry My Money, Honey! Street Rapper Gets Zilch

8/4/2016 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey got free entertainment from a rapper/panhandler -- but it was only free because she stiffed the guy's request for money afterward ... in classic Mariah fashion.

Mariah was holding court outside Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills ... swarmed by paps as she floated to her ride, and you've gotta see what happened once she got inside.

Watch for the bald guy who squeezed through the crowd to get right up to Mimi's window. His performance was awesome, and her reaction is hysterical.

Mariah's biggest mistake -- she shoulda signed this guy to her band!

Kathy Griffin I Wrote Kareem's DNC Joke

8/3/2016 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar opened up his wallet to take Kathy Griffin out to a dinner Tuesday night -- to thank the comic for writing his "I'm Michael Jordan" joke at the Democratic National Convention. 

Turns out, the two have been friends for a while (they met at the Chris Matthews show) ... and Kathy says she offered up the assist when it came to punching up KAJ's DNC speech. 

You know the joke ... Kareem walks out and says, "Hi I'm Michael Jordan ... I said that because I know Donald Trump couldn't tell the difference."

The blue people laughed. The red people ... not so much. 

After the thank you dinner, Kathy raved about the NBA legend -- and gave the plate-by-plate breakdown on what he had to eat. It's pretty funny. 

Viola Davis Keeping It 100 On 'Suicide Squad'

8/2/2016 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Viola Davis isn't shying away from the headlines surrounding her new movie, "Suicide Squad" -- in fact, she's facing 'em head on in this clip.

We asked Viola -- who plays intelligence officer Amanda Waller -- about director David Ayer getting f-bomb happy at the NYC premiere, and she's definitely got his back.

As for some pretty harsh reviews of the film? Viola seems to be blowing that off, but her reaction to our photog suggesting the flick might get Oscar attention ... is priceless.

Gotta respect her honesty. 

Sen. Tom Harkin I Got a Sign for Trump ... It's Better Than the Bird

8/2/2016 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Senator Tom Harkin has no words for Donald Trump, but he does have one quick and vivid sign for the GOP candidate.

Harkin -- who spoke at the DNC last week using American Sign Language -- flew into LAX, and we asked him what sign he'd use to describe Donald Trump.

His answer is short and hysterical. Basically, he's saying the Donald is #2 -- as in ... a turd.

Watch and learn a little ASL.

8/2/2016 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0802-donald-trump-twitter-01Donald Trump has boasted in the past how he gets his hands dirty on construction sites ... but eating KFC clearly crosses the line of cleanliness.

Trump chowed down on a jet with the help of a knife and fork, and he's getting blasted on social media.


You'll recall a few years back he dared to eat pizza with the same utensils.

To his credit his food choices are delicious.

Green was giving an interview when his teammates were discussing the situation ... and shouting some stuff at Draymond to give him a hard time. 

The best part -- when Boogie pretends to hold a mic in his hand and says, "Does this remind you of anything?"

You gotta watch the clip.

7/31/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been 38 years since Leon Spinks upset Muhammad Ali for the heavyweight title ... but that didn't stop the former champ from taking one last jab at his old opponent.

Neon Leon, and his brother Michael, attended the Pat Cairo cancer outing in Lido Beach, NY on Tuesday when Leon was asked if he wanted to lay a hit on a cardboard cutout of the GOAT.

"I'm gonna give him a little rest today," he joked before adding, "he's still ugly, too."

Leon went on about his relationship with Ali, saying, "he always talked s***, but we loved him anyway."

Proceeds from the event -- which included a tribute to Ali -- were donated to a local hospital for the terminally ill and for cancer research efforts.

Check out the clip.
