Shia LaBeouf Trump Protest Now On NYPD's Radar

1/23/2017 3:49 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123_cop_car_at_shia_protestShia LaBeouf's round-the-clock webcam protest of President Trump has a new viewer ... the NYPD.

Shia's group chants of "He will not divide us" have been drawing crowds outside NYC's Museum of the Moving Image since Friday afternoon -- at times there are several dozen people there joining in the action.

We noticed an NYPD van was also on the scene Monday, and cops tell us it's gonna be that way for a while. We're told at least one unit will be stationed at the protest, mostly for crowd control.

There's another potential issue -- haters looking to start trouble with Shia. On Sunday, he came dangerously close to getting physical with one such person.

Police tell us they were unaware of the near fight, but they'll be Johnny-on-the-spot at the protest for as long as necessary -- which Shia says will be at least the next 4 years.

Women's March Pussyhats Going Down in History

1/23/2017 4:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The pussyhats behind that sea of pink at the Women's March on Washington D.C. -- and others around the world -- will be enshrined in a museum commemorating the day.

Pussyhat Project co-founder Krista Suh says there were more than 20,000 of the iconic pink hats in D.C. alone, and the movement got the attention of Michigan State University Museum. We've learned the museum plans to include pussyhats in a feminism exhibit.

Suh's proud celebs like Madonna, Krysten Ritter, Julianne Moore, Amy Schumer and even Nick Offerman sported pussyhats at marches -- and says it's becoming impossible to quantify the hats' popularity. But that's a good thing.

The museum tells us the goal is to include a tip of the hat to pussyhats in a Women's History Month display. That's in March, if you didn't know.

'A Dog's Purpose' Producer Says Mistakes Were Made But PETA is Being Dishonest

1/23/2017 2:37 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"A Dog's Purpose" executive producer Gavin Polone makes no bones about it ... the video posted by TMZ showing a distressed German Shepherd shows mistakes were made on the set, but he insists the animals featured in the movie were well cared for and protected.

Polone strongly believes PETA is smearing the movie by trying to mislead the public into believing the dog and other animals were put in harm's way.

And Polone has harsh words for the American Humane Association, which he says should have stopped the action when the Shepherd made it clear he did not want in the water.

'A Dog's Purpose' PETA Shipping Protest Flyers To Anyone Willing to Picket

1/23/2017 1:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123-dogs-purpose-flier-launch-01PETA's first official protest poster against "A Dog's Purpose" barks out its mission statement ... "For Dog's Sake, Don't See This Movie."

We got our hands on the literature PETA just created for its planned nationwide picketing of theaters where the movie will play, starting Friday. Sources close to the org tell TMZ they'll be sending out as many boxes of the flyers as needed, to anyone who wants to help spread the word ... free of charge.

We're told more than 1,000 people in at least 25 cities have already requested the posters, which include a discussion about the video TMZ posted, showing Hercules, the German Shepherd, distressed while filming a scene.

The filmmakers have told TMZ ... this one video clip doesn't represent their treatment of animals on the set, and ultimately Hercules was not harmed. We've done a lot of checking, and no one's mentioned any other indiscretions during shoots.

Kim Zolciak My Baby Girl's Got Natural Back

1/23/2017 11:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123_brielle-biermann_snapchatKim Zolciak is coming to daughter Brielle Biermann's defense denying the 19-year-old has ever had butt implants, despite what the Internet thinks.

Brielle posted a racy pic of her rump on Snapchat and many jumped to the conclusion that it was fake since she has posted video of her lip injections in the past.

However, Kim tells TMZ the proof Brielle's got natural cakes is in the rest of her body ... there isn't an ounce of fat to use for butt implants. Kim says Brielle's big ass comes from the gym -- she works out a ton.

Not to mention ... she's 19.

Melania Trump No Gridlock in NYC For Barron's School Rides

1/23/2017 11:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123_melania_baron_motorcade_composite-2Melania Trump is going to endear herself to New Yorkers right off the bat by NOT creating traffic jams across the city ... TMZ has learned.

The First Lady returned to Trump Tower Sunday night because, as we reported ... she religiously escorts Barron to his private school -- but now they'll do it in a heavily protected motorcade rolling through NYC. This, understandably, was a deep concern for city commuters.

Our law enforcement sources tell us it won't be that bad. We're told the plan is to block off streets in a rolling pattern -- for just a few minutes -- to allow the First Lady's convoy to move quickly. NYPD will assist the Secret Service by blocking streets and re-opening them as soon as Melania's ride passes.

Bottom line for NYers: No massive street closures all at once, and no gridlock. Also, we're told the route will change regularly for security purposes.

We'll see how this all works Wednesday morning when Barron heads back to school.

Donald Trump I'm Buyin' Something New To Keep 'Keep America Great!'

1/23/2017 9:44 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123-donald-trump-tmzDonald Trump is ever the businessman, trying to own the slogan that got him elected, with a few changes.

Trump filed legal docs 2 days before he was inaugurated president, asking to trademark the phrase, "Keep America Great!"

The application seeks to corner the market on bumper stickers, shirts, posters, buttons and, of course, caps and hats ... all bearing the slogan.

Trump announced last week "Keep America Great" will be his slogan for the 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump actually bought the slogan "Make America Great Again" back in 2015 from a DJ who owned the trademark.

'Hollyweed' Sign Guy Hits Golden Gate ... Claims Trump Protest Banner

1/23/2017 11:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123-impeach-trump-bridge-sign-hollyweed-prankster-TMZ-02The "Hollyweed" sign prankster struck again -- this time on San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge with a huge anti-Trump sign. 

Zach Fernandez, aka "Jesushands," is claiming responsibility for climbing the iconic bridge late Saturday night and hanging a 40 foot banner that read "Impeach." Hard to see, but there was also a smaller "You're Fired" at the bottom of it.

In case you're wondering ... the Golden Gate bridge is 220 feet above the Bay.

Zach's rep, Eli Graham, tells us Zach hopped a railing, and crept along an exterior walkway to fly the banner. It was pulled down Sunday and California Highway Patrol is investigating.

Zach was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing after turning himself in for the "Hollyweed" prank. He could be facing another misdemeanor for the Bridge stunt.

Melania & Barron Trump Oops, I Thought Barron Had School Today!!!

1/23/2017 10:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123-melania-barron-trump-gettyMelania Trump may be First Lady now, but she's also just an ordinary parent who sometimes forgets her son is off from school.

TMZ broke the story, Melania planned to stay in the White House Friday and Saturday night after the inauguration but returned Sunday so Barron could attend school on Monday.

She did just that, only to find out the school is closed until Wednesday for some teacher conferences.

We spoke with several parents whose kids attend the school, and they said they too were unaware the school was closed. One parent told us he got his kids dressed for school today, only to find out the doors were closed.
