Donald Glover Shared His (Fake) Deadpool Script, and It’s Hilarious.
ICYMI, Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series—which he and his brother Stephen Glover were supposed to write, executive produce, and be showrunners for—was cancelled over the weekend. So this morning, the Atlanta star decided to “leak” the script, which contains a pretty comical address regarding the series’ cancellation from Deadpool himself.
“You know, I’m not mad about this whole ‘cancelled’ thing,” Deadpool says in the script. “I mean, is it even a good time to have a violent, gun loving white man ranting on TV? Other than the PRESIDENT?” Later, he speculates why the show was canned. “Do you think they canceled the show… cause of racism?! Yeah, but all the writers were black. And the references were pretty black too. … Maybe we were alienating our white audience? No. We did a whole goat yoga episode. Damn.”

What’s Abel Tesfaye Got Up His Sleeve?
Tuesday night (March 27) found The Weeknd sending Insta followers into a frenzy when he shared a screenshot of a text conversation that read: “Should we drop Friday? I’m indifferent to be honest.”
Could XO season be right around the corner? According to Billboard‘s sources, he’s definitely working on new music, and it’s supposedly taking Tesfaye “back to his roots.” (Editor’s note: Someone needs to just flat out say whether or not we’re getting another House of Balloons in 2018, because we need to be emotionally prepared.)

The brand removed it from all global markets, Reuters reports. Heineken said in a statement: “While we feel the ad is referencing our Heineken Light beer, we missed the mark, are taking the feedback to heart and will use this to influence future campaigns.” Sounds quite familiar.
