9/19/2017 4:07 PM PDT
Breaking News

Enes Kanter is standing up for the OKC Thunder after his former teammate Kevin Durant ripped the organization on Twitter ... saying K.D. is dead wrong.

As we previously reported, Durant tweeted that he hated playing in OKC because he didn't like his coach and former teammates (aside from Russell Westbrook.)

Kanter fired back with a tweet of his own ... saying "I don't care what anyone says. Oklahoma City Thunder is the best and most professional organization in the NBA and got the craziest fans."

"We win-We lose but the most important thing we stick together because we are one."

Kanter added ... "and those cats, I call them FAMILY."

Breaking News

Kevin Durant says it was "childish" and "idiotic" to slam his former OKC Thunder coach and teammates on Twitter this week ... but insists he was NOT trying to do it from a secret 2nd account. 

KD just addressed the situation at TechCrunch Disrupt -- where he was asked straight-up if he intended to post the anti-OKC tweets from an anonymous account so nobody would know it was him.

Durant denied the allegation ... only admitting to another Instagram account -- "but that's just for my friends and family so I wouldn't say I was using that to clap back at anybody."

KD says he enjoys engaging with basketball fans on Twitter but, "I happened to take it a little too far" when he told 1 fan that he left OKC because he "didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan."

"I don't regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter," Durant said at TechCrunch ... "I do regret using my former coach's name and the former organization that I played for."

"That was childish. That was idiotic. All those type of words ... I regret doing that and I apologize to him for doing that."

KD says he felt bad about it ... but will continue to use Twitter.

Earthquake!!! Celebs React to Big(ish) Shake

9/19/2017 8:52 AM PDT

Hollywood was rocked by a relatively minor earthquake Monday night -- but it was still enough to get several celebs shaking in their boots ... hysterically.  

The 3.6 quake hit shortly after 11 PM, and rather than running for cover ... most celebs seemed to grab their phones and post reactions -- the funniest of which came from Kim Kardashian, her panicked friends and Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy had a bladder emergency ... then hysterically reached out to hubby, John Legend. 

And Dad of the Year, Josh Gad, had his children's safety in mind ... for a while, anyway. 

Mother Nature ... bringing out the humanity in all of us. 

Draymond Green Loses It Over Kevin Durant's 2nd Twitter Account

9/19/2017 6:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Draymond Green's reaction when asked about Kevin Durant's alleged secret Twitter account might be the funniest thing you watch all day. 

The Golden State Warriors star was leaving Catch in West Hollywood with DeAndre Jordan when we asked about one of the biggest stories in the NBA ... KD allegedly setting up an anonymous 2nd Twitter account to deal with trolls. 

Earlier this week, KD seemingly exposed himself when trashing the OKC Thunder in a tweet that appeared to be meant for posting on his 2nd account. Instead he posted it using his official account. Oops. 

So, we had to ask the guys about it ... and the reaction is priceless. 

President Trump Terrorists are Losers Let's Get Nasty

9/15/2017 6:22 AM PDT

President Trump was quick on the draw following Friday's terrorist attack on a London train, calling for what appears to be below-the-belt responsive action.

22 people were injured when a bomb detonated on a London subway train. Trump jumped on Twitter, criticizing London law enforcement, saying, "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!"

But there's more. "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive & nasty!"

And the Prez has had it with the Internet fueling terrorists, "The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"

And he went back to the cornerstone of his campaign with this ... "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher, and more specific -- but stupidly, that would not be politically correct."

Nuff said.

Jason Aldean Burrito Troll Fired for Posting This ...

9/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The ex-burrito roller who trolled Jason Aldean did more than accuse him of being cheap -- he called the country star a "bitch" and insinuated he was racist.

TMZ obtained the since-deleted tweets from the fired employee of Black Sheep Burrito & Brews in West Virginia, and it's pretty clear why he was 86'd. One tweet said, "@Jason_Aldean can suck my ass for not tipping Black Sheep."

As we first reported, the guy put Jason on blast ... accusing him of leaving a crappy tip on a 60 burrito order. One of the tweets also reeked of racism, saying Aldean must think "Hispanics work at Black Sheep." 

For the record, the manager says the employee was fired for tweeting about a customer -- and Jason wasn't even responsible for the giant food order ... according to his rep.

Ted Cruz I Did Not Like That Porn Tweet ... Staffer Who Did Won't be Fired

9/13/2017 2:00 PM PDT

Ted Cruz is not gonna fire the dude on his staff who liked a porn video on Twitter.

Cruz spoke to CNN's Dana Bash Wednesday, and the elephant in the room was addressed ... his official Twitter account had "liked" a porn video on Monday night ... which showed up to his 3 million-plus followers.

The Texas senator made it clear -- it wasn't him. A male staffer "screwed up" and "hit the wrong button." Cruz also said he wasn't gonna out the "fella" who did it, 'cause it was accidental and wouldn't happen again.

Dana asked if the staffer would be punished, and Cruz deflected, saying it'd been dealt with internally. In other words ... the guy's still got a job.

What he didn't address ... why the hell was the staffer in any position to like porn?

White House Press Sec. ESPN Should Fire Jemele Hill ... Over Anti-Trump Comments

9/13/2017 12:07 PM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump's mouthpiece is calling for ESPN to fire anchor Jemele Hill -- claiming her tweets calling the President a "white supremacist" are outrageous and unacceptable.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders -- the White House press secretary -- was holding a news conference on Wednesday when a reporter asked if Trump was aware of Hill's comments.

Sanders replied, "I'm not sure he's aware but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN."

Hill has never hidden her disdain for Trump -- and went off about him on Sept. 11 saying, "Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy."

"Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists."

ESPN had issued a statement about the situation on Tuesday saying Hill's comments "do not represent the position of ESPN."

"We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."

Ted Cruz XXX Twitter Scandal Official Account 'Likes' Hardcore Porn

9/12/2017 6:14 AM PDT

Senator Ted Cruz is all about that hardcore threesome action -- at least, judging by his Twitter account which "liked" a very X-rated video late Monday night.

But here's the rub ... Cruz's spokesperson is strongly implying the Senator was hacked!!

The video in question was posted by the Twitter handle Sexuall Posts -- and featured a hot blonde lady diddling herself while secretly watching a man and a woman have sex. Good times.

Since "likes" are public -- someone noticed that Cruz's account had clicked the 'ol heart button for that particular post ... and it spread through social media like wildfire.

Particularly interesting considering Cruz is a hardcore religious conservative who once defended a Texas law which banned the sale of sex toys.

Cruz's Sr. Communications Adviser, Catherine Frazier, strongly insists the porn watcher ain't Cruz -- tweeting, "The offensive tweet posted on @Tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter."

So, careful everyone ... seems there might be someone out there hacking social media accounts and "liking" things they're not supposed to.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Here's What I Meant About Harvey

8/29/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson is walking back his confusing comments about Hurricane Harvey that infuriated meteorologists and climate scientists.

We got America's most famous astrophysicist Monday night in NYC and we asked him about last week's tweet as Houston braced for Hurricane Harvey's catastrophic storm and flooding.

Neil said, "Don't see much denial of (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) climate scientists who have predicted Hurricane Harvey's devastating path into Texas." Problem is ... Neil in one tweet confused the job of a climate scientist. He explains how he got it wrong.

But in true Neil form, he takes shots at global warming deniers.

President Trump I'm Really the Best At Corny Twitter Jabs at Obama

8/24/2017 6:40 AM PDT

President Trump is a sucker ... for 3-day-old Twitter memes ... especially ones that proclaim him to have somehow eclipsed President Obama.

Early Thursday morning, as POTUS scanned his social media, he couldn't resist retweeting a pic showing 45 eclipsing 44 with the caption, "The best eclipse ever."

Truth is ... the opposite image, in support of Obama, made the Internet rounds too. Again ... THREE days ago.

Bottom line:
- Absurd use of the President's time? Check
- Late jab? Check
- Ridiculously petty? Check 

Yeah. Someone definitely shoulda worn more appropriate eyewear during the actual eclipse.

Torrei Hart Numbers Don't Lie Kevin Was Cheating on Me

8/21/2017 9:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Torrei Hart can't believe Eniko Hart, Kevin's current wife, has forced her hand to publicly confirm Kevin cheated on her.

We got the ex-wife and mother of Kevin's 2 kids Sunday outside the Laugh Factory in WeHo, and she's genuinely perplexed that Eniko went after her on social media, saying she's playing the victim. Eniko also dropped a bombshell, saying she's been with Kevin for 8 years, yet he separated from Torrei 6 years ago.

Torrei is fierce but careful not to attack Kevin. It's clearly something she's dealt with privately in the past.

Donald Trump Shame on Us For Removing Confederate Statues

8/17/2017 6:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump is fighting like General Robert E. Lee to preserve the symbols of the Confederacy ... and he's resorting to shame.

Trump just tweeted, "Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments."

He goes on ... "You can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson -- who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!"

Trump does not elaborate on the lessons we can learn from the statues.

And, he says, "Also, the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!"

A number of cities are removing Confederate monuments in the wake of the Charlottesville violence.
