LINKS! Danny Masterson rape claims, Florida high school shooting, Mayor wants sex for speedbumps…

THE BLEMISHDanny Masterson’s lawyers tried to get The Blemish to take down a story stating that Masterson has been accused of raping unconscious women and that the Church of Scientology allegedly helped cover it up. Which is true: though he hasn’t been charged, he’s been *accused*, and the LA Times has reported on the church’s involvement in the allegations. Anyway, what the site did instead of taking the story down was smart and you should give them your clicks

VERY SMART BROTHAS17 students were shot to death at Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida yesterday. It was the 18th school shooting in America in 2018, which was 45 days old at the time. We all may have forgotten this over the past few years, but schools aren’t supposed to be a venue for shootings and insecurity and panic

CELEBITCHY “Donald Trump doesn’t think school shootings are a national tragedy”

JEZEBELIt’s the links post Sunshine Trifecta: A woman in Lantana, Florida is accusing the mayor of offering to get her the neighborhood speed bumps she asked for in exchange for sex. Not that you shouldn’t be outraged, but this can’t be the first time this has happened in Florida

REALITY TEACountess Luann rejected the prosecution’s plea deal and now faces five years in prison for her Christmas Eve shenanigans. In case you’ve forgotten, those include allegedly “resisting an officer with violence” (a felony) along with trespassing and disorderly intoxication (both misdemeanors). No matter how unbearable your holiday may have been, Luann had it worse

DLISTEDThe Smashing Pumpkins aren’t going to reunite with all four original members in 2018 for the same reason they didn’t do it in 2007: Billy Corgan is a doofus

VOXIn case you missed its debut last night because you had something else to do on Valentine’s Day, here’s the first trailer for The Incredibles 2. The first one was maybe the most fun Hollywood movie of this century so far, so hopefully the sequel can at least graze that impossibly high bar with its fingertips

UPROXXGeorge R.R. Martin probably just told the world (in the most oblique fashion possible) that the next Game of Thrones book won’t be out this year. Not that anyone has been able to pressure more words out of him, but wouldn’t it make more sense marketing-wise for the book to come out when the final season of the TV show airs next year anyway?

LAINEY GOSSIPRobert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may be dating again. Or it’s a conspiracy theory, which these days makes it as good as true
