OG 'Rudolph' Actor People Who Bully After Watching Classic ... Are Just Like Scrooge!!!

12/2/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

An OG castmember of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is firing back at critics who call the holiday classic "problematic" for the modern world.

Corinne Conley, who voiced the dolly for Sue in the 1964 TV special, tells TMZ she can't believe the outcry of criticism after more than 50 years of it being a beloved tradition for kids and their parents.

Critics came for 'Rudolph' this year, calling it out for sexism and bullying -- like the scene where Rudolph is forced to cover his red nose just to avoid all of the other reindeer laughing and calling him names.

Corinne, however, insists that any bullying or negative plot points are happily resolved by the end of the show. In fact, she contends if someone was a bully before watching, they'd learn a valuable lesson by the time the credits roll.

Bottom line for Corinne ... Rudolph should go down in history, and not just for pulling Santa's sleigh.

Paige VanZant Reveals Horrific Gang Rape In High School

Breaking News

UFC star Paige VanZant says she was gang raped in high school by a bunch of boys who got her drunk and assaulted her when she couldn't defend herself.

The 24-year-old described the incident and the impact it had on her life in her new book, "Rise: Surviving the Fight of My Life."

"They move me around ... They change my position. I fail each time I try to resist, my limbs like wet cement on my body, my brain a heavy fog. I am awake and conscious, but my body feels dead."

"I know what is happening but can do nothing to stop it. I have no voice or choice but to submit and pray that it ends soon."

It's unclear if VanZant went to the police. We're trying to find out.

Paige says the bullying she experienced after the rape was unbearable -- and led to her changing her last name from Sletten to VanZant because the kids at school nicknamed her "Slutton." Her family ultimately moved from Oregon to Nevada to give her a fresh start. 

PVZ told MMA Fighting she's sharing all this now because she wants to be an advocate for anti-bullying ... and help let others know they're not alone.

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Back on the Same Team Sued for Bullying

EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna tortured an ex of hers to the point they drove him to nearly kill himself after outing him ... so claims Pilot Jones in a new lawsuit.

Jones is suing Rob and BC for defamation and cyberbullying after he says they blamed him for selling the pic that showed him making out with BC, exposed him as gay and released his contact info to the public that invited terrorist threats.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Pilot says he flatly denied he was BC's baby daddy when contacted by an outlet about the make out photo, which he says he never released. Pilot also mentions the threats were reported back in October 2016.

BC's ex says things got even worse when Rob & BC released his cell number and email address. He says he started getting threatening messages from strangers like, "You're a f****** snake for doing that to Rob & Chyna" and "Today will be the last day of you walking bitch."

Pilot says the threats destroyed his self-esteem and he lost all hope of restoring his respect with his children, adding he attempted suicide.

Pilot's suing for damages. We've reached out to Rob & Blac, so far no word back.

50 Cent Autistic Airport Worker Lawyers Up Wants $1 Mil For Bullying

Exclusive Details

50 Cent has new legal trouble after taunting a 19-year-old man who turned out to be autistic -- TMZ has learned his family is strongly considering a lawsuit.

Andrew Farrell was just doing his job as a janitor at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport when 50 Cent appeared to randomly single him out on video ... accusing him of being high at work. Fiddy posted the video on Twitter.

Ken Kramer, Andrew's stepdad, tells us Andrew suffers from autism and Asperger's syndrome. He also has a hearing condition which forces him to wear a hearing aid.

Ken says Andrew has never smoked or had a sip of alcohol in his life. He says Andrew has severe social anxiety, and that's why he ignored 50 -- he also doesn't know who the rapper is.

Ken says the family has lawyered up, and the only thing stopping them from suing immediately is concern about stiff attorney fees. He says they'd be willing to forget the whole thing, IF 50 Cent donates $1 million to Andrew's GoFundMe page, and makes a face-to-face apology.

They might want to research 50's finances.
