Child TV Star Kirk Cameron Makes Astoundingly Tone-Deaf Statement About Hurricanes

Former child-actor-turned-evangelist Kirk Cameron shared a video on Facebook explaining his interpretation of the meaning of hurricanes. 

As he stood in an Orlando airport preparing to flee Hurricane Irma, Cameron had this to say:

This is a spectacular display of God’s immense power. And when he puts his power on display, it’s never without reason. There’s a purpose. And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it’s not random. And we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe, and repentance. 

Another possibility is that God wants us to pay attention to climate change.

Here’s Cameron’s video, which he made while avoiding God’s message of “humility, awe and repentance”:

The death toll for Hurricane Harvey currently stands at seventy, while Hurricane Irma is predicted to cause massive devastation in Florida. Irma has already slammed the Caribbean, reducing some areas to rubble.

Instagram Star Caught Photoshopping Phony Pictures Of Herself In Exotic Locales

Amelia Liana is what we like to call a “social media influencer.” That means she’s internet famous, mostly for being internet famous. Her Instagram account alone has over 472,000 followers. She lists herself as a “Fashion, beauty & travel blogger” and posts glossy, brightly-colored images of herself in exotic locations. 

Essentially, Amelia lives a “dream life” and posts pictures about it online.

Those glossy magazine-style photos may have been what drew her followers to her initially, but they’re also the thing that’s garnering her some unwanted attention and criticism lately. 

People have decided there’s a little bit too much Photoshop happening in Amelia’s pics and they’re calling her out. 

For example, this post of her at the Taj Mahal has people crying foul. We don’t know if you’ve ever actually been to the Taj Mahal, but it’sneverthis empty.

And as one commenter put it: “You can see this is photoshopped because the reflection on the water, notice how the Taj Mahal seems compressed to fit inside the pool… this is not how reflections work.”

And then there’s this pic. Look closely at the top of Amelia’s head.

We hope it’s not painful.

Amelia took to her social media to explain that sometimes she creates an image rather than actually taking it since it’s visually more appealing, but she’s always actually at the location she’s posting about. 

“Inauthentic” is one way to put it.

Even news outlets have started pointing out some of the more blatant incidents of image manipulation.

People started to question her directly about her images and her image principles.

Not everyone is bothered by the image manipulation, though. Some people seem to see it as par for the course and part of selling the “fantasy life.” 

Katja straight up doesn’t care if the pictures are Photoshopped.

And Sophie thinks we’d all do it if we could.

Do you think Amelia is being dishonest or just padding the truth in a harmless way? Let us know!

Source,Source,Source

Dear Evan Hansen has been Broadway’s smash hit, winning multiple Tony Awards including Best Actor for a Musical. The show examines depression, suicide, and bullying. The role of Evan Hansen is an incredibly draining character. When star and Broadway breakout sensation, Ben Platt, didn’t show up to take photographs at the stage door, he began to be harassed on Twitter to the point of having to put out a statement.

Ben Platt’s performance in Dear Evan Hansen is a performance for the ages, so it’s no wonder people want to meet him at the stage door afterward.

So when he didn’t show up at the stage door at every performance, some angry fans took to Twitter to harass him.

As someone who truly cares about his fans, Ben responded on twitter.

I don’t know about you, but this man just proved he’s not only talented; he’s an amazing person.

And his fans couldn’t agree with him and stand by his side more.

Ben Platt, you’re amazing and we’re so happy for your success. Don’t let any of the haters bring you down, because even at its worst, “you will be found.”

Disney's Epcot Center Is Getting Transformed Into A Giant Death Star This Month

There are fewer Disneyworld images that are more iconic than the Epcot Center. Its’ large, impressive white globe is one of the many things you think of when you remember Walt Disney World.

Well that famous white globe’ getting a Star Wars makeover to celebrate the release of Rogue One which is coming out this Christmas.

What kind of makeover you ask? Well, by turning it into the most iconic spherical shape from the Star Wars series of course.

That’s right, they’re turning Epcot into a mother-flippin’ death star.

Using digital projections, Epcot’s Spaceship Earth is getting the Death Star treatment. The news broke on the Disney Parks Blog, but if you’re hoping on seeing this bad-assery in person, well, we’ve got some bad news for you.

The affair is invite-only, for media peeps. So unless you can grab your hands on some press-credentials, you won’t be able to see it.

If that applies to you, then you can RSVP here. Of course, you could always convince a media outlet not based in Florida to have them give you creds for their publication in exchange for photos.

Funny enough, Orlando Weeklyart director, Adam McCabe predicted this would happen way back in 2013.
