Ex-'Big Brother' Houseguest I'm Giving JC a Pass on N-Word ... Trump Says Lots of Crap!

7/18/2018 3:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A former "Big Brother" houseguest says it's no big deal JC Mounduix dropped the n-word ... because he was just answering a question honestly.

Devin Shepherd, from 'BB16,' tells TMZ ... he doesn't think JC had bad intentions, and was merely defending himself. JC, who's 4'8" ... used the slur while trying to explain -- to a black houseguest -- the difference between the words "midget" and "dwarf."

Fellow houseguest, Bayleigh, who is black -- was pissed and warned JC to never use the word again. However, Devin says JC's outburst is no worse than stuff President Trump says on a daily basis.

Shepherd strongly suggests the country's got bigger fish to fry than a slip of the tongue in the 'BB' house. 

Not a bad point, especially this week.

'Big Brother' JC Drops N-Word and F-Word ... Black Houseguest Pissed!!!

7/18/2018 9:31 AM PDT

"Big Brother" houseguest JC Mounduix hurled a couple of nasty epithets Tuesday night -- in front of a black houseguest -- while trying to explain how NOT to offend people. No joke.

JC, who stands 4'8" tall, was trying to explain the difference between the words "midget" and "dwarf" ... and told Bayleigh Dayton, who's black, it's like "gay and f***ot or ni**er and black."

The lesson did NOT go over well with Bayleigh, who quickly reacted in anger.

This isn't the first time a 'BB' houseguest has gone there. Kaitlyn Herman dropped the n-word earlier this month while singing a Drake lyric, and that was AFTER producers had warned them about offensive language. Oh, and there were the two women who said their tans made 'em "look ghetto."

Good times.

Drake Uber Driver Calls Him and Driver 'F***ing Idiot' ... For Dinging Car

7/18/2018 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake and his driver got an earful from an Uber driver who went ballistic after Drizzy's driver apparently dinged his car ... and it's all on video.

The "In My Feelings" rapper was arriving at Delilah in WeHo on Tuesday night ... on his way inside, you hear someone howl from a distance, "F***ing idiot." Drizzy stops dead in his tracks.

Our camera guy quickly figures out what all the ruckus is about ... the driver is chewing out Drake's muscle/driver for allegedly swinging his door open, right into the Uber. 

The Uber driver wasn't letting it go and called the cops. L.A. County Sheriff's Deputies showed up but didn't take a report because accidentally dinging a car isn't a crime. 

Kim Basinger & Priscilla Presley Dead Serious Protesting Korea's Dog Meat Trade

7/17/2018 3:08 PM PDT

Kim Basinger held a photo of dead dogs skinned and hanging on hooks to protest the dog meat trade in Korea, but Priscilla Presley took it a step further ... by holding an actual dead canine.

We talked to Kim at the protest, which went down in L.A. Tuesday at the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea, and she says the demonstration is about speaking out against what's wrong ... and killing dogs is definitely wrong.

She admits the dog meat trade has been part of Korean culture, especially with the older generation in S. Korea ... but she thinks it's time for a change.

The protest itself got very graphic. Basinger and many others from the group Last Chance for Animals held signs with disturbing images reading "Stop Dog Meat" ... while Presley and a few other women looked to be holding dead animals.

Other celebs at the protest included Donna D'Errico and EG Daily and Basinger's boyfriend, Mitch Stone. There were also 2 more protests in D.C. and Seoul.

The poor dead dogs were reportedly recently euthanized and provided by a local L.A. vet for "shock factor."

It definitely did the trick.

Donald Trump I Didn't Commit Treason ... Just Botched a Double Negative!!!

7/17/2018 12:24 PM PDT

Donald Trump's doing something a tad out of the ordinary for him -- taking back a comment he made ... but only after saying his message SHOULD have been obvious.

The Prez just issued a clarification after siding with Vladimir Putin over the U.S. intelligence community, claiming it was all a big misunderstanding because he flubbed a single word ... by saying "would" when he really meant "wouldn't."

We've all been there ... right?

Trump wants to make it clear now -- he fully supports the intelligence community's conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election ... though he still believes it had no influence on the result, and suggests maybe they weren't alone.

Wouldn't that be something?

Rep. Ted Lieu Vladimir Putin's Got Dirt on Trump How Else to Explain This?!

7/17/2018 11:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

What President Trump said publicly with Vladimir Putin standing next to him was so shocking it begs the question -- what kinda dirt does Putin have on Trump? That's what Rep. Ted Lieu wants to know.

We got the California Congressman on Capitol Hill Tuesday and he thinks what happened is obvious ... when Trump sold out the U.S. intelligence community by siding with Putin.

Lieu says the only way to explain Trump's behavior is that Putin knows something none of us know. And, he wants answers.

James Harrison Blows 10-Foot Putt ... With 30-Foot Shot

7/17/2018 11:27 AM PDT
Breaking News

Missed it by thaaaat much. 

Actually, James Harrison missed his easy 10-foot putt by about thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat much. 

The ex-Steelers linebacker took a break from hittin' the weights to hit the links Tuesday (for charity!) ... and it's clear he's better at pumpin' iron than swingin' it. 

Besides the terrible putt at Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach -- the 40-year-old also completely missed his drive on 13 ... with the ball still chillin' on the tee as he was firmly in his backswing.

The upshot ... Harrison's in town for the ESPYs and is putting a spotlight on raising money for the V Foundation -- the cancer research organization founded by Jim Valvano.

So, keep doing you, James ... and remember, it's all in the hips!

Wiz Khalifa I'm Not Sorry for Korean Eyes Lyric I've Got Asian Friends, So ...

7/17/2018 8:48 AM PDT

Wiz Khalifa doesn't feel like he has to apologize if Koreans are offended with his new song, and his reasoning is basically the ole, "I have black friends" ... except, y'know. 

The rapper was on "The Breakfast Club" Tuesday, when Charlamagne tha God asked if he had any response to criticism he's getting over his new song, "Hot Now." Specifically, the lyric "Smoke got my eyes lookin' Korean" ... is pissing off some people. 

Wiz said he's already gotten a pass on that lyric, plus he "loves Asians" ... so it's all good.

Wiz added that his music is open to interpretation ... and he's cool with it if some people get angry. While he's at it, he points out there are a few other groups that should be ticked off about "Hot Now."

In other words: bring it on!! Someone's embracing that saying about all publicity.

Christian Slater $300k for Putin Summit? God, Trump's an 'Ass****!!!'

7/17/2018 7:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Christian Slater's throwing a jab at President Trump for the summit with Vladimir Putin, but not for his words ... this one's all about spending $300k on the summit.

We got the "Mr. Robot" star in D.C. Tuesday and he quickly shared his thoughts on the story we broke -- the administration's six-figure tab at the Helsinki summit. For the record, the full amount was $302,124.62.

Christian kept it short and sweet -- or bitter, depending on your perspective -- and took a very personal shot ... one related to Trump's sobriety.

Sen. Ed Markey Trump Not with U.S. ... He's with Putin!!!

7/16/2018 5:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump threw the U.S. under the bus by publicly taking Vladimir Putin's word that Russia didn't meddle in the 2016 election ... so says Massachusetts' U.S. senator.

We got Sen. Ed Markey Monday in D.C. and he said Trump's display in Helsinki makes it clear he's only looking out for himself in dealing with Putin. He defied U.S. intelligence info, and said he didn't see any reason why Russia would have meddled in our elections. 

Markey says Monday's summit should have been confrontational, but instead turned into an embarrassing display of virtual ass-kissing.

As for why it went down that way -- the Senator didn't dismiss the conspiracy theory about Russia having dirt on 45.

Kourtney Kardashian BF Younes Bendjima Throws Shade at Her Booty Pic

7/16/2018 12:27 PM PDT

So, this is a first -- someone's complaining about Kourtney Kardashian sharing a hot thong pic ... and that someone is her boyfriend, Younes Bendjima.

Younes took the jealous boyfriend route Monday, posting a comment on Kourt's photo which many are interpreting as major shade. He wrote, "thats what you need to show to get likes?"

He's since deleted his IG burn.

Kourtney and Younes have been dating since last October and reportedly had a brief breakup in March ... and word was there was some tension over Instagram.

Social media ... the ultimate relationship killer. 

Rae Sremmurd Bum-Rushed Onstage ... Fan Tackled Hard!!!

7/16/2018 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rae Sremmurd didn't see it coming -- getting bum-rushed onstage by a dude who also never saw the HARD TACKLE that came after his very poor decision.

The incident went down Saturday night at the Ottawa Bluesfest music festival in Canada as the group was in the middle of performing its hit song, "Guatemala." You can see a line of security in front of the stage, but somehow this guy managed to elude them all and make his way onstage.

Almost right away you know it's a bad idea. The crasher at first tries getting a selfie ... but his ass gets rejected, and then comes the blindside tackle. The guy's subdued and the concert seems to go on without a hitch.

When will crashers learn ... it never ends well. Never.

Conor McGregor Catches World Cup Final With Vladimir Putin

7/15/2018 12:32 PM PDT

Conor McGregor got to sit in on the World Cup final in person this weekend, showing up as a guest of none other than Vladimir Putin.

The UFC star posted a photo of himself Sunday alongside Russia's president, posing like a tough guy with someone he calls "one of the greatest leaders of our time." 

Conor's caption read ... "Today I was invited to the World Cup final as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This man is one of the greatest leaders of our time and I was honored to attend such a landmark event alongside him. Today was an honor for me Mr. Putin. Thank you and congratulations on an amazing World Cup."

He ended with "Go Russia" ... written in Russian. Hopefully they're both aware Russia got knocked out in the quarter finals, but that's beside the point. What's important (and weird) is that Conor is super chummy with Putin ... who's known as kind of a bad dude, depending on who you talk to. 

All we can say ... it's an interesting way to ring in the big baby news from this weekend. Word to your Mother, Russia ...we guess.
