Brad Pitt Is Allegedly Being Investigated For Child Abuse

Things are getting uglier for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Their divorce proceedings were announced earlier this week, and naturally, the rumor mill started swirling.

TMZ reported early on Thursday that Pitt is being investigated over allegations of child abuse, saying he got drunk on their private jet the week before and became verbally abusive and physical with the kids on board. A witness told them that even when the plane landed, Pitt was yelling on the tarmac and attempted to leave in a jet fuel truck. They’re also saying that someone at the scene anonymously reported Pitt to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

However, it might just be a rumor (even though riding off in a fuel truck certainly sounds like something a drunk entitled actor would do in a fit). The Daily Mail is reporting that they spoke

Bushwig, Brooklyn’s Biggest Drag Festival, Is Changing The Definition of Drag

What is drag, anyway? We’ve all seen queens strutting their stuff at gay bars or comically feminine cross-dressers in the theater, but as the artform expands and explodes, how do we even define this type of expression? While drag has gained new levels of accessibility with television shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and social media platforms like Instagram, the performers at this weekend’s Bushwig festival in Brooklyn, New York are challenging the mainstream idea of what a drag queen even is.

Organized by beloved Brooklynite Horrorchata, Bushwig has expanded from a small gathering of underground queer artists into a full two-day festival with over 100 performers. What started in a small backyard venue slowly grew over half a decade. This year, the Wigstock-inspired festival took over The Knockdown Center, a sprawling warehouse art space just on the outskirts of Bushwick, Brooklyn. For the first time, the festival featured a food

Giselle Esteban: ‘Snapped’ Spotlights Ex-Friend Who Lured, Killed California Nurse, Michelle Le

Giselle Esteban, the woman who killed her best friend, Michelle Le, five years ago, will have her story spotlighted for the second time this year on Snapped on the Oxygen Network. This past March, the Inquisitr brought you Giselle Esteban’s story when it aired on Investigation Discovery’s See No Evil. Michelle Le was a missing nursing student who disappeared but was later found murdered. Giselle Esteban is currently serving time for the murder.

Oxygen’s Snapped will recount how Michelle Le, a nursing student at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, vanished into thin air in May 2011. The young nursing student, who was in class shortly before she disappeared, told her professor that she needed to go out to her car to retrieve some medication. The car was parked inside the hospital’s parking garage. Her worried professor decided to look for her when Michelle Le failed to return.

Classmates and the professor

Actual News Anchor Terry Moran To Milo Yiannopoulos: "You’re An Idiot"

With Milo Yiannopoulos at the helm, the alt-right has been getting mainstream media coverage — despite their ridiculous and radically hateful politics. Hillary Clinton herself even decried the anti-feminist and white-supremacist movement in a powerful speech that warned of the dangers of these extremist views. Now, one news anchor has had enough of Yiannopoulos’ bullsh*t and decided to call a spade a spade in an interview on Nightline. “Are you a 13-year-old?” asked Terry Moran of the belligerent gay conservative.

Specifically inquiring about the Leslie Jones incident, Moran went in on the dubious morality of internet trolling and questioned the bullying tactics that Yiannopoulos frequently employs.

“You’re going to go after somebody’s body to denigrate their ideas?” asked a shocked Moran. “What grade are you in? Seriously.”

“You’re an idiot, really,” Moran elsewhere replied to a comment Yiannopoulos made about Jones’ appearance.

Moran’s zero tolerance approach evoked this ludicrous rant from Milo, who claimed
