Rashida Jones wants female celebs to quit tweeting slutty selfies

EXTRA! EXTRA! Tweet all about it! Another celebrity is using Twitter as their virtual pulpit.

At least this time, it’s a respectable (and coherent) Twitter rant. Rashida Jones tweeted her disdain for celebrity slutty selfies over the weekend, admonishing her lady peers to “stop acting like whores.”

“This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular,” the Parks and Recreation actress wrote.

Lest she be labelled a grade-A prude: “Let me clarify. I don’t shame ANYone for anything they choose to do with their lives or bodies. BUT I think we ALL need to take a look at what we are accepting as ‘the norm.'”

Could “the norm” have anything to do with certain rear-end reveals by a reality queen and a pop star? Or perhaps  a buxom lady rapper?

“There is a whole generation of young women watching. Sure, be SEXY but leave something to the imagination,” she wrote, before concluding with a well-timed male-objectification joke: “Also, calling on all men to show me dat ass.”

Bravo, Ms. Jones. She identified a troubling trend, made a PSA, a hashtag, and a joke, in only five tweets! Brevity can be your friend, Kanye.

Shia LaBeouf tweets nude photo from 'Charlie Countryman'

Shia LaBeouf is a compulsive Twitter oversharer and he has no qualms about getting naked. So it was inevitable that his twin passions would eventually collide. Yesterday, the star of Charlie Countryman, the movie in which he says he dropped acid to help tap into his character, posted a photo of himself from the film sans wardrobe. “Tune in, turn on, drop out,” LaBeouf wrote in his tweet.

Lately, LaBeouf has torn into roles in a very first-person way. For Lawless, he admitted to guzzling moonshine, and for the upcoming Nymphomaniac, he hinted that his graphic sex scenes would be 100 percent Shia. (Director Lars von Trier later revealed that body-doubles would be used.)

In Charlie Countryman, out Nov. 15, LaBeouf plays an American in Romania who falls for a young woman (Evan Rachel Wood) with ties to a violent gangster (Mads Mikkelsen.) Watch the trailer — with only hints of nudity — below. READ FULL STORY

Damon Lindelof has left Twitter

Sigh: Looks like the idiots won.

One day after Damon Lindelof released a cryptic, purposefully unfinished tweet — “After much thought and deliberation, I’ve decided t” — it seems that the Lost creator has decided to bow out of Twitter entirely.

It’s possible that Lindelof is simply on sabbatical; before his account disappeared, Lindelof had changed his Twitter bio to read “On hiatus until the government shutdown ends.” Then again, given the amount of abuse heaped on the writer/producer via Twitter in the last few weeks — on the eve of Breaking Bad‘s finale, for instance, he was met with a barrage of messages from folks who are still angry about the way Lost ended — it’s also likely that this break could be a bit more permanent. There’s also this:


Philly newswoman 'breaks bad' with ill-conceived tweet

Joyce Evans anchors the news for Fox 29 in Philadelphia. She also seems to be a fan of Breaking Bad. So what better way to tease the lead story on yesterday’s 10 p.m. news — a mass shooting — than by dropping a BB reference?

People on Twitter immediately responded — and not necessarily in a good way. READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' meets 'Breaking Bad': Jesse Tyler Ferguson takes a Heisenberg tour of New Mexico -- PHOTOS

When Jesse Tyler Ferguson grew up in New Mexico, Heisenberg was just a German physicist, not a porkpie-hat-wearing teacher-turned-meth kingpin.

But the Modern Family star clearly supports the White family’s Albuquerque takeover: When he visited his home state over the weekend, Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita took a tour of all the locations made famous by Breaking Bad and posted pics online.

First stop: Walt’s house, though that doesn’t look like a green Aztek in the driveway …

Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.56.58 PM

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

'South Park' spoofs Alec Baldwin's trouble with Twitter -- NSFW VIDEO

Last night, South Park‘s season 17 premiere did what the show does best: It made fun of a high-profile celebrity in a very NSFW way. The celeb in the hot seat? Alec Baldwin.

While on the set of a commercial, “Baldwin” reveals that he sometimes “accidentally tweets things that are homophobic.” But because he doesn’t think that way and only types that way (his “thumbs are homophobic,” he says), he chops off those thumbs. So how does he communicate with the rest of the world? By joining a new form of social media (with a very, er, interesting name) that broadcasts your every thought to all your followers. And let’s just say, Baldwin’s every thought is not about his sugar-free diet or his new baby daughter.

Watch the very NSFW clip below:

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: Two Twits making hashtag happen

Last night, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake tried to make “hashtag” trend all by itself.

Timberlake, who’s spending every Tuesday this month with his late-night pal, in advance of the release of his new album, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2, on Sept. 30, was just sitting in Late Night‘s guest room, eating some homemade cookies, when Fallon stopped by to hang. Or as Timberlake said, setting off the hashtag olympics, he was just “hashtag chilling.”

Back and forth it went, with Fallon landing the best hashtag shout-outs — hashtag [Cookie Monster eating sound] and hashtag [Ray Romano calling for Debra].

The guys got carried away — which was the point — but Questlove’s hashtag contribution might have the best hope of actually trending.

Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

Do you hate 'Breaking Bad' spoilers on Twitter? You should probably thank Netflix

Whether you’re just now starting to binge-watch Breaking Bad as a whole or you’re  just a few hours behind on the latest episode, Netflix is making sure you don’t find out Walt’s fate before you’re ready.

Netflix, which houses Breaking Bad‘s entire library, has launched a Spoiler Foiler to block all tweets that could potentially spoil anything Breaking Bad-related. By going to the website and logging on to your Twitter account from there, the Spoiler Foiler filters out any tweets with the words “breaking” or “bad” in them. So, it could technically filter out a tweet having nothing to do with the show, but that’s probably worth the risk.
