Man Whips His Nephew With a Belt For Acting ‘Gangster’ on Facebook

Well, this video is kind of a must-watch…

From what I can tell, this teenager posted something to his Facebook wall that implied he’s more rough and tumble than he actually is. After his uncle discovered the post, he called him down to the family webcam to get his lashings, as well as a lecture on not making the family seem like they’re from something they’re not.

It doesn’t look like the kid’s hurt (I mean, he’s bigger than the dude delivering the beating), but it does look like he’ll think twice before trying to give the illusion that he’s a gangster again. That said, an angry, shirtless man beating his nephew with a belt over a Facebook wall post IS just about the most gangster thing I’ve ever seen, sooooo….

Y’all Gonna See The Facebook Movie This Weekend

I am. 10 PM. The Arclight. I’ve had my tickets for two days.

Personally, I can’t miss The Social Network simply because I’ve been hearing about the making of this movie for like, three years now. It’s time that I put it in my face and get it over with, you know?

But I’m also dying to check it out because I went to Boston College, one of the first six schools to even be open to Facebook. Yup, all the way back then when we were just using it to stalk our classmates and no one ever thought we’d ever have to worry about stuff like our future employers being on there and how it would affect their opinion on us. Facebook has been a part of my entire adult experience, and it’s pretty trippy to think that a dude just a year or two ahead of me in school, at a University practically up the street, invented this whole thing. Like, in order to get laid. It’s pretty remarkable.

If you’re still not sold on seeing The Social Network and the standard trailer isn’t going to do it for you, check out this kooky animated trailer from Taiwan above.

Teri Hatcher Posted an Entire Facebook Album of Herself in a Towel

Teri Hatcher stopped using botox and from the looks of it, she also stopped using her damn mind. I found a Facebook album of nine photos of Teri in terrycloth (like, she literally just got out of the shower), talking about the state of her face and botox usage. Um, perhaps she took the name “Facebook” a bit too literally?

The above photo had the following caption:

Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what “they” say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.
Alright, well, we’ve known older ladies in Hollywood to make declarations like this for some time, but the hits just kept coming. There are eight more pictures with similar captions, all taken at arms length like a MySpace profile default from 2004.
Check out the gallery below, or wander over to Teri’s Facebook page for the full effect.

Which Celebrity Has The Most Facebook Fans?

What Star Has The Most Facebook Fans?

If you had to guess which Facebook fan page (those groups you join to show support for your favorite TV show or actress or snack food) had the most members, what would you say? My guess would be something popular amongst high school and college kids (who I would assume are the most active group of users), more or less gender neutral, and something that Christians and hethens alike can get down with. Like that show Lost or maybe that band Nickelback that everyone seems to love so much.

The people over at PopCrunch have been monitoring the most popular fan pages, and the list after the jump might surprise you.

Paramore Singer Hayley Williams Has Some Nude Photos Floating Around the ‘Net

And it’s all because her Twitter got hacked. I’m so sick of these celebrities crowing that their privacy on SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKS has been invaded — you posted photos of yourself naked on Facebook. Or Twitter. Or whatever. People are smart; they’re gonna figure out a way to get all up in your shit and if you have those incriminating photos on hand, oh snap. But you know what? At the end of the day, I don’t want to hear you bitching about it. You did it, own up to it and suck it up. Actions, consequences. Really.

I also get that some celebs like to accidentally leak their photos (hello NSFW Jamie Foxx … and damn, too), so if you’ve got the brass balls to do it, fucking own up to it! Honestly! I’d have more respect if you came out and said, “Yeah, I took them … and I released ‘em, too.” You know. Inquiring minds just want to know and everyone likes to see what celebrities look like in the buff. Duh.

So. Hayley Williams is the latest distraught celebrity that is crying because her tits made it live on the internet. Great. Own it, girl.

You can check out the uncensored and obviously NSFW photo here, and I know you will, so tell me what you think.

Are You Participating in Doppelgänger Week?

As the NY Post pointed out the other day, you may have noticed that a lot of your Facebook friends are changing their profile pictures from photos of themselves, to photos of celebrities they think they look like. That’s because it’s Doppelgänger Week! Here’s the explanation from the Post:

In order to celebrate Doppelgänger Week, Facebook users switch their profile pictures to famous people they have been told they resemble.

The trend appears to be catching on like wildfire, so much so that its success is being compared to that of the “bra colour” status updates. The recent viral trend had women updating the style of bra they were sporting in order to raise awareness for breast cancer.

The news feed announcing Doppelgänger Week on the social networking site this week read:

“It’s Doppelgänger week on Facebook; change your profile picture to someone famous (actor, musician, athlete, etc.) you have been told you look like. After you update your profile with your twin or switched at birth photo then cut/paste this to your status.”

So I guess this is a fun little game. Plus, it’s a great way to see how delusional your friends are. I was helping a girlfriend pick out her Doppelgänger the other day and I told her she kind of resembled Stacey Dash. Her refreshing response was something along the lines of “Bitch! Stevie Wonder doesn’t think I look like her!” On the other hand, I definitely have friends that are less down to Earth and are proudly sporting a Megan Fox photo on their profile. As if.

Who are you going to pick as your Doppelgänger?
