Is Hollywood finally beginning to understand how great their hypocrisy truly is? Will they change their ways and stop finger-wagging at middle-America, lecturing to everyone else rather than looking to their own house?

Jessica Chastain’s Call to Action: Hollywood Has “Clear Disconnect Between How We Practice What We Preach”
At Elle Magazine’s Women In Entertainment event Monday evening, actress Jessica Chastain took her turn at the podium as an opportunity to call out hypocrisy in Hollywood.
“This is an industry rife with racism, sexism and homophobia,” she said, speaking to a room full of women including Laura Dern, Riley Keough and Aaron Sorkin. “It is so closely woven into the fabric of the business that we have become snowblind to the glaring injustices happening every day.”
Shaun White Apologizes for Dragging American Flag, Promises Infidel Radio it ‘Won’t Happen Again’
We think you are the shit…just don’t be a dumb ass again!
Snowboarder Shaun White apologized Wednesday for dragging a U.S. flag on the snow after his dramatic gold medal victory in the men’s halfpipe, but said he did not know he had let the flag touch the ground.
“I remember being handed the flag but I was trying to put my gloves on and hold the flag and get board,” he told reporters afterward. “Honestly, if there was anything, I definitely didn’t mean any disrespect.”
“The flag that’s flying on my house right now is way up there. So sorry for that,” White continued. “But I’m definitely proud — very proud — to be a part of Team USA and being an American and to be representing for everyone back home.”
White reclaimed his Olympic halfpipe title, landing back-to-back 1440s to knock Japan’s Ayumu Hirano out of the top spot, and at the same time won the United States’ 100th all-time gold medal at the Winter Olympics.
But White, who also won his third gold medal, immediately got criticism on Twitter for allowing the flag touch the ground several times while he was overcome with emotion following his career-capping performance.
