While You Were Sleeping, Sarah Silverman Got Slapped By A Dashing Baby
Here are some things that happened overnight, featuring Reece Witherspoon's apology, tagging on Instagram, and the latest from Jash.
Reece Witherspoon: “I’ve played a lawyer in a movie so many times that I think I am a lawyer. And clearly I’m not a lawyer. Because I got arrested.”
Reece “disorderly conduct” Witherspoon went on Good Morning America to promote her upcoming film Mud, but also to give a humble, all-out apology for the fiasco last week — when her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, was arrested for DUI, and Reece got out of the car, demanded her fame be recognised and, for some reason, claimed she was pregnant.
It sounds like she was just drunk. We can forgive her for that. “We had one to many glasses of wine, and we thought we were fine to drive, and we absolutely were not. It’s just completely unacceptable, and we are so sorry and embarrassed. We know better … It was absolutely something that will never happen again.” As for her belligerence? “I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things … I have no idea what I was talking about.”
“Having to tell our kids – just embarrassed. And we have to say, you know, that when you make a mistake, you take responsibility. And we are taking responsibility and doing everything in our power to make it right.”
You Can Now Tag People On Instagram:
No one’s really sure why it took this long, but Instagram have finally introduced a tagging feature — so you don’t have to @people in the comments of your photos anymore.
Fete Des Pets with Sarah Silverman:
Here’s the latest from Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera and Tim & Eric’s YouTube channel, Jash: a stylish French film noir short that follows Silverman’s passionate but ultimately tumultuous relationship with a volatile toddler, whose blatant disregard for her triggers her descent into madness.
(‘Fete Des Pets’ means ‘Fart Party’.)
WBC Are Still A Bunch Of Jerks:
Six members of the Westboro Baptist Church (which actually amounts to almost a tenth of the entire movement) showed up at last night’s Rockets vs Thunder game in Oklahoma to protest Jason Collins being gay, because they are the Westboro Baptist Church and they do things like that.
