Twitter rallies to save fool who innocently subtweeted actor Tom Sizemore

We don’t know anything about Eric Pope except what we can glean from his Twitter biography: he’s from Montral, we think he’s a dad, and he needs help. It started innocently with a tweet about Showtime’s revival of the classic show “Twin Peaks,” but anyone familiar with David Lynch’s work knows nothing’s as innocent as it seems.

The murderous Assad regime has an unexpected accomplice

http://twitter.com/#!/ClaireBerlinski/status/221956653262700546

With over 15,000 of Syria’s own citizens murdered at the hands of Bashar al-Assad, this news is just breath-taking. So, who is helping the murderous dictator?

https://twitter.com/EvanPokroy/status/221956804748386304

That is a very reasonable guess, given the U.N.’s long record of failures, but try again. Think “PR firms.”

Brown Lloyd James, according to its website, “is managed by an elite group of distinguished former news executives, top-level White House and Downing Street political advisors, high-profile entertainment industry executives and experts in international affairs. Our staff have been at the right hand of presidents, prime ministers, media barons – and yes, even The Beatles.”

Among their areas of expertise is “reputation management.” As their promotional material helpfully explains, “Things happen in the course of global events that can quickly change your public image. A positive reputation and image are powerful strategic tools and effective insurance policies should something go wrong. Brown Lloyd James has the skills and experience to manage and control fast-moving and potentially volatile situations.”

Yes, yes it is. That brings up the inevitable question.

How do these people live with themselves? RT @ClaireBerlinski Guess Who's Helping Assad Get Away With Murder? http://t.co/o4BMC6gy #Syria

@EatingAsia That's exactly what I've been asking myself since I saw that.

— Claire Berlinski (@ClaireBerlinski) July 8, 2012

It seems like it might be bad for the reputation of a firm specializing in “reputation management” to be associated with advising a murderous thug.

It is also incomprehensible.

Losing: Charlie Sheen quits Twitter

reach for the stars everyone.

— Charlie Sheen (@charliesheen) July 13, 2012

Celebrities are quitting stuff left and right. Is there something in the Cristal?

You can add Charlie Sheen to the growing list of quitters. The famously infamous train wreck is the latest star to throw in the Twitter towel. According to tabloid site TMZ, “Charlie feels like he’s not getting anything out of the social network.”

Those of you who are lamenting this news, take heart. Plenty of temperamental celebrities have left the Twitters only to be sucked back into the Twortex. Charlie loves the spotlight too much to stay away for long.

How the…? These Mind Bending Perspective Pics Will Make You Question Reality. #23 Is Crazy.

The Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa are two of the most iconic places for tourists looking to take what are known as forced perspective pictures. You’ve definitely seen them before. They’re the pictures where it looks like someone is holding the Eiffel Tower in their hand, or propping up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Forced perspective employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. This how they used to make old monster movies, but the technique can also be used to create some great photos. Somehow though the best forced perspective shots always seem to be vacation photos. Here are some of the best ones we found:

1.) It’s pretty windy out there. – Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

2.) Anyone in there? – Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Female celebs confess to love of Hillary’s pantsuits in video

With only hours left before the Iowa caucuses, Lena Dunham is circulating a hastily shot and edited video showing a number of female celebrities reciting the line, “I’m with her,” with all the passion and persuasion of an automated answering machine routing your call to the help desk. To Dunham’s credit, we did recognize nearlyhalf of these big time celebs without peeking at the name cards.

All of these women love Hillary’s pantsuits, but what will they think of her bracelets when she’s finally indicted? A majority of Dunham’s followers are #FeelingTheBern, and display an encyclopedic knowledge of Clinton’s scandals.

Gossip monger Perez Hilton? He’s with her.

Now look what you’ve done, Dunham.

#GiulianaRancic Recorded A Video Apologizing For Her #Zendaya Comments

“I want to say to Zendaya and anyone else out there that I have hurt, I am so sincerely sorry,” Rancic said.

1. A day after Giuliana Rancic mocked Zendaya’s dreadlocks at the Oscars on Fashion Police by suggesting she “smells like patchouli oil,” Rancic issued an apology in a recorded video message.

2. Here’s her apology in full:

“I’d really like to address something that is weighing very heavy on my heart. I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night’s Fashion Police about Zendaya’s hair. Now, as you know, Fashion Police is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do understand that something I said last night did cross the line. I just want everyone to know I didn’t intend to hurt anybody. But I have learned it is not my intent that matters, it’s the result. And the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya and that is not OK. Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya and anyone else out there that I have hurt, that I am so, so sincerely sorry. This really has been a learning experience for me. I’ve learned a lot today and this incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes — how much damage they can do — and that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. Thank you for listening.”

3. Rancic’s Fashion Police comment was met with a ton of backlash on Monday night, including a heartfelt message from Zendaya.

4. But there was also the fact that another panelist chimed in after Rancic’s comment, suggesting Zendaya could also smell like “weed.” Many people speculated that Kelly Osbourne threw out the “weed” mention.

6. But Osbourne responded on Twitter, saying she did not make the “weed” comment, that she’s friends with Zendaya, and adding she’s considering leaving Fashion Police due to the controversy.

I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same!

— KellyOsbourne (@Kelly Osbourne)

you guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend right?

— KellyOsbourne (@Kelly Osbourne)

Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!

— KellyOsbourne (@Kelly Osbourne)

I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!

— KellyOsbourne (@Kelly Osbourne)

11. Rancic’s apology made no mention of the “weed” comment or of Osbourne, who has yet to tweet about the apology.
