Nyle DiMarco slams Jimmy Fallon and Jamie Foxx for ‘Tonight Show’ promo he says mocks hearing impaired

Nyle DiMarco is accusing Jimmy Fallon and Jamie Foxx of being disrespectful of hearing impaired people.

DiMarco, the first LGBT champion in the history of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, took to Twitter to slam the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show and the Oscar winning actor for a recent promo.

The spot last week showed Foxx jokingly pretending to translate host Fallon’s comments into sign language.

DiMarco tweeted: ‘It is straight up disrespectful to make up sign language.
Everything is in gibberish. How was this allowed? Where’s the cultural sensitivity. Not comedy when you make fun of others.’

DiMarco was not through.

He then followed up with a lengthy and strongly-worded post on Twitter in which he stated in part: ‘We simply do not make fun of other cultures, especially those with a history of being marginalized. When we do this, progress takes a step backward.

‘Sign language is important to me because it’s the bedrock of Deaf culture. … What Foxx did on Fallon Tonight made our struggle that much harder.’

The sexually fluid model and dancer is also a past winner of America’s Next Top Model.

Cher pays tribute to former husband Gregg Allman

He was once famously married to Cher and is the father of her younger son Elijah Blue Allman, 40. Cher paid tribute to Allman on Twitter writing ‘Words are impossible.’ Now 71, Cher wrote a deeply personal song about their relationship called Too Far Gone (My Song) which was on the B side of her Take Me Home single which I owned and played and played and played – both sides.

Wishing a happy 27th birthday to Chris Colfer!

I’ve been so dazzled and impressed with Chris Colfer since first seeing him on Glee all those years ago. He gave the gay character of Kurt Hummel such heart and soul. We rooted for Kurt and we rooted for Chris who went from unknown to Golden Globe winner, three-time People’s Choice Award winnrr and Emmy nominee. But even during the show’s run, Chris was always working on other things. He wrote, starred in, produced, and novelized his first film, Struck by Lightning, which debuted at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. He is also a New York Times number-one bestselling author of The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, the first novel in his middle-grade reader series. He has since written four more books in the The Land of Stories and all have been best sellers. Earlier this year Chris also released his second book for Young Adult readers called Stranger Than Fanfiction. Happy birthday to this talented and busy young man!

Tennis legend Margaret Court is boycotting Qantas Airlines because its CEO supports gay marriage

Australian tennis legend Margaret Court is boycotting Qantas Airlines because its CEO Alan Joyce has taken a public stance in support of same-sex marriage.

‘As you will know, I have represented Australia many times and have the proud record of never losing a tennis match while playing for my country. I am disappointed that Qantas has become an active promoter for same-sex marriage. I believe in marriage as a union between a man and a woman as stated in the Bible,’ Court wrote in an open letter published in The Western Australian.

Court, 74, is one of only three women in tennis history to have won all four of tennis’ grand slam singles titles (Wimbledon, US, French and Australian) in the same year.

She has also won more grand slam singles titles (24) than any other women in history.

Court’s most enduring tennis rivalry was against the now-openly gay Billie Jean King with whom she squared off against multiple times at Wimbledon and other major tournaments.

It was Court who was responsible for King playing the most famous match of her career against Bobby Riggs.

Court had accepted a challenge to play the 1939 Wimbledon champion in early 1973 and lost badly.

King, who had fought to establish a women’s tennis tour, felt she had no choice then but to take on Riggs in the legendary Battle of the Sexes match. King won in straight sets. Married to a man at that time, King is now married to a woman.

Andy Cohen and Jonathan Groff once kissed: ‘It was sweet and we love each other to this day’

Andy Cohen is himself famously single and sometimes he hooks up with famous people.

The host of the reboot of the classic dating TV show Love Connection once kissed Tony nominated actor Jonathan Groff who has appeared as a guest on Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

‘It was sweet,’ Cohen tells People Magazine of the kiss.

But it was not a love connection or even a sexual one.

‘Nothing else happened besides that, and we love each other to this day.’ Groff was once in a relationship with fellow actor Zachary Quinto.

Cohen has occasionally hooked up with other famous guys as well including former N’Sync singer Lance Bass.

In 2012 Cohen revealed they had kissed then three years later he said: ‘The most famous person I ever slept with, I guess, is… Lance Bass!’

Bass quickly clarified things the next day on his radio show: ‘I can just tell you right now, there was no Andy D going in my B. I’m not going to tell you what went down…but it’s not what people are thinking.

‘It just happened that Andy was with me on this vacation. It was so nice and romantic and it was just a nice time. It was one of those things where I needed someone to hold onto.’

One person Cohen has not kissed in a romantic sense is best friend Anderson Cooper who he was supposed to go on a blind date with.

During a pre-date telephone conversation, Cooper has said he immediately knew they were meant to be friends and not lovers.

Tony winner Alan Cumming thinks US President Donald Trump is ‘an embarrassment to America’

t size-medium wp-image-145155″ />Alan Cumming is no fan of US President Donald Trump who he calls ‘an embarrassment to America.’

The Tony winner and former star of TV’s The Good Wife has harsh words for the embattled Trump who is currently wrapping up his first foreign trip as president. Cumming takes particular issues with what he sees as Trump’s lack of support for LGBT and racial equality.

‘He’s an embarrassment to America for people looking at us, but I think certainly his lack of interest in continuing the process of supporting equality in all areas is something that people will look at,’ Cumming tells CBS News.

‘That obviously has an effect in America and around the world. Hate crimes against LGBT people — especially transgender people, especially against people of color — have rocketed, and of course they would because you have someone who condones those attacks through silence.’

He believes it is racist and anti-LGBTI backlash that enabled Republican Trump to pull off an improbable victory last November over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

‘I just feel that when you have someone as irrational and pandering to anyone who will keep him in his place of power, that’s a very dangerous place if you’re in a minority group that recently just had a big surge in equality,’ Cumming says.

‘If you think the reasons why we have Trump is a massive backlash against people of color in the White House, it’s also a backlash against laws during [President Barack] Obama’s time and a lot of laws pertaining to the LGBT community.’

During the presidency of Obama – the first African-American US president – same-sex marriage became legal in all 50 states and gay people began serving openly in the US military.

Cumming will return to television this fall as the lead in the new CBS series Instinct in which he plays a former CIA operative turned professor who is drawn back into his former life.
