Mark Cuban just got a ringing endorsement for President from old pal Daymond John ... who couldn't stop singing the guy praises.

'Black-ish' Star Deon Cole 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Ban Sorry Ass Attempt to Wipe Our History

10/16/2017 7:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Black-ish" star Deon Cole is FUMING after learning "To Kill a Mockingbird" was banned in the South and makes no bones about it -- it's a blatant attack on African-American history.

We got Deon at LAX where we told him about about the ban that went down in Biloxi, Mississippi where the school board there removed the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic from its reading list because the language -- littered with N-words as it was set in the 1930s -- made people uncomfortable.

But Deon's calling BS ... saying banning the book is a clear attempt to cleanse American history.

EXCLUSIVE

Gerard Butler was hospitalized after he says he got run off the road and took a bad spill on his bike.

Sources close to Butler tell TMZ ... he was riding his motorcycle in L.A. when he got cut off by a car, causing him to crash. Someone called 911, paramedics came and took Gerard to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Lucky for him ... no broken bones ... just cuts and bruises.

Lucky for Gerard he's not laid up. His climate change disaster flick, "Geostorm," comes out next week, and he's able to promote it like usual, despite being a little banged up.

Jason Derulo Burglary Employee Slept While Safe Smashed And $680k Got Jacked

10/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo's home burglary is looking less like a random crime and more like the perps had some help ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspected burglars pried a door open to get into Derulo's pad last month, and made a beeline for his safe. We're told they beat the crap out of it, got it open and escaped -- all while one of JD's employees slept in the house.

Cops say about $600k in jewelry and about $80k in cash were taken. Now, to be fair, we're told Rip Van Winkle -- aka the employee -- was dozing pretty far away from the smashed safe. Jason's got a big crib.

Still, we're told cops suspect an inside job.

Breaking News

4:56 PM PT -- Colin's lawyer, Mark Geragos, released a statement saying ... "We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the CBA on behalf of Colin Kaepernick. This was done only after pursuing ever possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives." The statement goes on to say Colin shouldn't be punished for his peaceful protest, and that he just wants to get back to playing.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging the league colluded to keep him out because of his National Anthem protests ... according to a new court filing. 

The filing, obtained by ABC News, alleges the league's owners "colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice."

Kaepernick has also hired celeb attorney Mark Geragos for representation as opposed to going through the NFL Players Association.

As we reported ... Kaep's protest has ignited a national debate about kneeling for the flag. 

Taylor Swift On a London Bridge ... That's Filming Now

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift is back in action ... doing a music video in the UK.

Taylor was spotted filming a new video in London Saturday night, where she shot around a few different sets "Green Eggs and Ham" style ... on a double-decker bus, in a cab and on a bike atop the Millennium Bridge.

She's rumored to have been spending time in London recently -- even reportedly hosting a secret listening session for fans there to hear her new album, "Reputation," over the weekend.

Looks like the city's grown on her enough to wanna shoot there ... but not enough to be fully out in the open. You see her trying to avoid cameras with her crew ... and on the move. 

Until the next T-Swift sighting ... 

James Corden Sorry for the Bad Weinstein Jokes

10/15/2017 1:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

James Corden is apologizing for making light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal with tasteless jokes he made onstage ... and after Rose McGowan teared into him online.

Corden issued an apology Sunday saying "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention."

The "Late Late Show" star caught a ton of flak this weekend for jokes he cracked while hosting the amfAR Gala on Friday in L.A.

Corden's comments were met with a lot of groans and little laughs, but he persisted and kept the offensive Weinstein jokes coming through the night. One of his biggest critics was Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, who called Corden a "MOTHERF****** PIGLET"  on Twitter.

If there's one thing we've learned this week ... it's that Rose knows no filter ... and takes no prisoners on the subject of Weinstein. Seems Corden knows that all too well now. 

Harvey Weinstein Au Revoir Legion d’Honneur! FR Prez Revoking Award

10/15/2017 12:32 PM PDT
Breaking News

Harvey Weinstein's crumbling rep is now an international affair -- France plans to strip him of an honor they hand out to stand-up guys ... which their Prez says he ain't anymore.

Emmanuel Macron announced Sunday that France was moving to revoke Weinstein's Legion of Honor -- the highest French order of merit that can be bestowed for military or civil acts. Weinstein got the distinction in March 2012.

As we reported ... Weinstein just got expelled from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this weekend as well.

Up until now, France was saying they were only considering revoking Weinstein's Legion of Honor in the wake of multiple accusations of sexual harassment and assault. 

Looks like they've turned the corner on the issue ... Macron says he's already asked the French Academy to begin the process of stripping Weinstein.

Harvey Weinstein Ouster From Academy Fake Outrage?

10/15/2017 7:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expressed its outrage by kicking Harvey Weinsteinout of the org, but the question ... is this honest indignation or PR?

Bill Cosby is still a member in good standing, and the Academy has been silent as a church mouse for more than a year after more than 60 women have accused him of rape, date rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse. 

Ditto Roman Polanski, who raped a 13-year-old in 1977.  In fact, the Academy bestowed on him Best Director in 2003 for "The Pianist," and the likes of Meryl Streep gave him a standing ovation. 

In expelling Weinstein, the Academy said it wanted to "send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over." 

The question ... did they know about Weinstein's antics for years, and were they complicit?

Check out some of the evidence ... 

COURTNEY LOVE, 2005, PUBLICLY WARNS ACTRESSES, STAY AWAY FROM WEINSTEIN

 ANGIE EVERHARDT, 10 YEARS AGO SHE SAYS WEINSTEIN ASSAULTED HER ON A BOAT DURING A FILM FESTIVAL. SHE TOLD EVERYONE ON BOARD AND THEY LAUGHED IT OFF.

WEINSTEIN'S ANTICS WERE SUCH COMMON KNOWLEDGE, BACK IN 2012 "30 ROCK" JOKED ABOUT IT.

AND SETH MCFARLANE TOOK A SHOT AT WEINSTEIN DURING THE 2013 OSCAR NOMS.

So when the Academy talks about "complicity" ... are they talking about others, or themselves?

Artie Lange Hospitalized for High Blood Sugar ... Cancels Comedy Show

10/15/2017 11:28 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Artie Lange never made it to his show in Ohio this weekend -- but ya can't blame the guy ... he stayed grounded on doctor's orders. 

Sources close to Artie tell TMZ ... he wasn't feeling well Saturday ahead of his comedy show in Akron, Ohio because of high sugar levels. We're told he suffers from this due to his diabetes.

Rather than risk further injury by taking a flight from his home in New Jersey to Ohio, we're told Artie followed his doctor's instructions to hit a hospital and skip the show. Sources say Artie had a bad reaction the last time he flew with high blood sugar, so it was a no-brainer.

Artie checked into a local ER in NJ and we're told he's feeling better now.

Woody Allen 'Sad' For Weinstein Hopefully No Witch Hunts!

10/15/2017 10:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

6:25 PM PT -- Woody Allen has clarified his "sad" comment over Harvey Weinstein in a statement to Variety ... saying " When I said I felt sad for Harvey Weinstein; I thought it was clear the meaning was because he is a sad, sick man ...Lest there be any ambiguity, this statement clarifies my intention and feelings."

Woody Allen says he feels "sad" for Harvey Weinstein after being accused of sexual harassment and assault -- but he also hopes no witch hunts come out of this.

Woody told the BBC Saturday that he felt for everyone involved in the Weinstein scandal -- including the women making the allegations, and Harvey himself. 

He explained ... "The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved. Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that (his) life is so messed up."

Allen -- who's been accused of sexually abusing children -- went on to say he'd heard rumors about Weinstein before, but never took them seriously because he was only interested in making his own movies while working with the guy. 

And while Allen says he hopes this can be a teachable moment in Hollywood, he also doesn't "want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself." 

Pressing his luck?
