Tumblr porn ban goes into effect puppy photos caught in sweep

first_imgTumblr’s ban on adult content went into effect Monday, and it didn’t take long for users to bare their naked thoughts on the move.The blogging platform announced the change Dec. 3 in a post titled “A better, more positive Tumblr.” On Monday, a new post apologized for what the site admitted has “not been an easy transition.” Flagged content will be hidden, not deleted, the site reported.”Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, specifically sculptures and illustrations, is also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr,” the post says. “Although, photorealistic imagery or photography – images, videos, or GIFs — with real humans that include exposed genitals or female-presenting (yeah, we know you hate this term) nipples or depict sex acts is not allowed per our guidelines.”Breastfeeding and nudity in art are still OK to post.  Users quickly found flaws in Tumblr’s implementation of the ban. Some found tricks to get around the flagging process, others saw legitimate content hidden.Asked for comment, Tumblr referred CNET back to the Dec. 3 and Dec. 17 posts, as well as the site’s posted updates to its community guidelines.

SpiderMan fans want to storm Sony and bring our boy home to

first_img Marvel Sony TV and Movies 77 Photos Share your voice Comments 14 Tania González/CNET First the internet wanted to raid Area 51, now Sony is the target, with over 5,500 Spider-Man fans planning to storm its California offices and bring Spider-Man back to Marvel.A Facebook event, hosted by three fans, was set up on Tuesday. The event, according to its description, involves dressing up in Spider-Man costumes and bringing “our boy home!” (to the Marvel Cinematic Universe).The raid is planned for Oct. 31, aka Halloween. The perfect guise.This fan rage spawned from a report Deadline published Tuesday of a high-level dispute between Sony and Marvel. That dispute means Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige won’t produce any more Spider-Man films and Marvel will no longer be involved in the Spider-Man movie universe.Fan ire has been primarily targeted at Sony, but the company pointed to Marvel’s role in Feige stepping away. “Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” a spokesperson told CNET. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.”Stay hopeful, though. The Sony representative also stated they hoped things might “change in the future.”Sony and Marvel made a deal in 2015 to make Spider-Man movies together. The latest, Spider-Man: Far From Home, earned more than $1 billion at the box office, becoming Sony’s highest ever grossing film.Columbia Pictures, Sony’s primary film production holding, acquired the rights to movie Spider-Man in 2000. It made five Spider-Man movies before the deal with Marvel brought Spider-Man: Homecoming, then Far From Home. 2019 movies to geek out over Tagslast_img read more

Karan Johar calls drug party accusation ridiculous

first_imgWere celebs on drugs at Karan Johar’s party?Video screengrabFilmmaker Karan Johar has finally broken his silence over allegations of hosting a drug party for a few A-list Bollywood stars at his residence last month.In a recent interview, Karan is furious with the brouhaha around the alleged ‘drug party’, and says all such charges are “baseless and ridiculous”.It was an “easy night out”, the filmmaker says, adding that his mother was also appalled reading about it.”I toyed with the idea of giving out a statement. I toyed with giving out a thought on the social media about something… There were achieving members of the industry who were having an easy night out after a hard week of work, having a good time. I took that video with all the earnestness… would I be putting out that video if there was anything happening at all, I am not stupid,” he said in an interview with Rajeev Masand.Last month, Karan had posted a video on Instagram of a party he hosted at home. Soon afterwards, Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa shared the video, alleging that top stars who were present at the party — such as Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, and Vicky Kaushal — were flaunting a “drugged look” in the video. He tagged the video with #UdtaBollywood, taking off on the film “Udta Punjab”, which was about the drug menace in the state of Punjab and which, incidentally, starred Shahid.Karan has now opened up on how the reflection of a light near Vicky was misconstrued as proof.”Apparently you are not allowed to scratch your nose. Apparently, you are not allowed to put your phone in your back pocket. Apparently, a shadow of light is perceived to be some kind of powder,” he said, further revealing that Vicky was recovering from dengue and was drinking hot water with lemon.”Some of us were chatting and some of us were having wine, but that was it. It was a baseless accusation, and it really annoyed me because you are taking away the culture and tradition that I have been raised in. My mother was appalled when she read those things because she was there. Which powder? We are all very committed professionals,” he said.The filmmaker called it a night out where friends were letting their hair down.”My mother, five minutes before this video, was sitting with us. It was that kind of a family, happy, social gathering, where friends were sitting and having a good time and we were listening to some music, having some good food and having good conversational energy there. There was nothing else going on,” he said.”The reason I didn’t put it out was because ‘why do I need to justify a house party which was a casual get together with good friends?’ How dare you grab it away from us? How dare somebody constantly make us soft target? It is ridiculous that someone can start spotting these things,” Karan said.He also said that his friends, who were present in the video, also found the accusations ridiculous.”I thought if I justify it will start looking that I am speaking too much in defense.”While he didn’t react to these accusations, he has decided that he will take a legal action next time.”I am not taking this very kindly, the next time where baseless accusations, I will take the legal route. You cannot mar our solid reputations, our sincere reputations our committed reputations just because you are presuming something. You cannot put out a baseless accusation that has no base, no fact, no truth, no reality and try and mar us and our reputations, it’s ridiculous.”The incident, he claimed, has left an impact on his mind.”I am, now, afraid to call up people to my home thinking that they might be afraid to show up,” he said.last_img read more
