Robert Alexander/Getty Images American Airlines is eating its words after its lawyers claimed in a legal filing that a 9-year-old girl was at fault for failing to notice a hidden camera in one of its airplane bathrooms, disavowing the accusation as a mistake. The airline distanced itself from the lawyers who’d “made an error in [the] filing” in a sheepish statement, telling the Associated Press that the claims made by the “outside legal counsel retained with our insurance company” did not reflect its own views. “The included defense is not representative of our airline and we have directed it ..read more

ANTONIN THUILLIER Kelly Rowland has spoken out about the viral moment on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet when she was seen wagging her finger at a staff member, suggesting the incident was racially motivated. In a clip shared by The Associated Press on Thursday, the singer addressed the incident, saying she was treated differently to other stars on the red carpet and decided to stand her ground. “The woman knows what happened. I know what happened,” Rowland says to the camera, fighting back tears. “I have a boundary, and I stand by those boundaries. And that is it.” Read more at The Daily ..read more

Gilles Mingasson/Disney Abbott Elementary Season 3 may have been shortened due to last year’s WGA and SAG strikes, but that doesn’t mean the show didn’t pack plenty of storylines into just 14 episodes. To name a few major moments: Ava (Janelle James) went to Harvard. Melissa (Lisa Ann Walter) and Jacob (Chris Perfetti) moved in together. Janine (Quinta Brunson) left Abbott to work at the school district—and then returned to teach at Abbott. A lot has happened! Now, it’s time to party. Janine has invited everyone (except the students) from Abbott to a gathering at her 350-square-foot apartment ..read more

Jacquelyn Martin/Getty Images Justice Elena Kagan seemed to take a subtle swing at her conservative Supreme Court counterpart Samuel Alito in her dissent to a ruling issued Thursday morning. The case, which was split 6-3 in its decision, was over a gerrymandered election map in South Carolina that a lower court had ruled as discriminatory towards Black voters. The Supreme Court’s decision Thursday reversed that ruling, finding no bias toward Black voters in MAGA Rep. Nancy Mace’s (R-SC) district. Alito, writing for the conservative majority, said the plaintiff NAACP brought no significant evid ..read more

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Reuters/Tatler The artist whose portrait of Kate Middleton has been roundly derided as amateurish and lacking any resemblance to Kate herself has said her intention was to capture the Princess of Wales’ “soul.” Hannah Uzor told Tatler magazine, who commissioned the portrait for its July cover: “It’s really important to capture the soul of the person, so I spent a lot of time looking [at Kate], looking at her pictures, watching videos of her, seeing her with her family, seeing her in diplomatic visits, seeing her when she’s rowing or visi ..read more

Michael Buckner/Getty Images Beyoncé is still riding high off the release of her country-inspired album Cowboy Carter, but this week, she was hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit that may put a damper on her summer.

The suit was filed by the original members of Da S ..read more

Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/Getty Images As a longtime fan of the reality dating genre, I’ll be the first to admit that some of my favorite shows have never scored high in the “taste” department. But lately, it’s really starting to look like studios are competing to find out who can come up with the most 30 Rock-coded concepts. Netflix’s Dated & Related invited siblings to sleep next to one another while dating other people in the same house. TLC’s MILF Manor paired mothers up with each other’s sons. And now, I want you to read the following words in Alec Baldwin’s ..read more

Fox News Refutes Trump Assassination Conspiracy That Fox News Helped Spread

Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Following a 24-hour news cycle’s worth of MAGA outrage over Donald Trump’s claims that President Joe Biden authorized an assassination plot against him, Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich put the nail in the coffin of this latest Trumpian conspiracy theory on Wednesday night. Heinrich’s scoop that the search warrants of Biden’s homes in Delaware contained the same standard “deadly force” language as the Mar-a-Lago raid came after a number of pro-Trump Fox News stars wondered if Biden had told the FBI “it would be OK to kill Donald Trump.” “A person ..read more

Opinion: Nikki Haley Bends the Knee to Trump, Humiliates All Her Supporters

Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/Getty Images By announcing her intention to vote for Donald Trump for president, Nikki Haley did the most Nikki Haley thing possible: She caved to Trump and depressed every conservative Never Trumper who pulled the lever for her. For those paying close attention, however, this outcome was predictable, given the last decade, or so, of Haley’s career. Perhaps a quick recap is in order: In 2015, she criticized Trump’s temperament, saying, “That’s not who we are as Republicans. That’s not what we do.” (Spoiler: It is who we are and it is what we ..read more
