Punisher Star Denounces Alt Right Groups

Published

on

Jon Bernthal has some blunt words for any alt-right fans of his work, which he was happy to share in a new interview about his role as the Marvel character, The Punisher.

Speaking in an interview with Esquire, Bernthal was asked how he feels about his character’s logo, a skull with long fangs, appearing on helmets and other military member’s clothing as well as some alt-right protesters at the controversial 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

To the men and women in uniform, Bernthal said he was, “honoured to play a guy who people putting their life on the line identify with”.

As for the Alt Right White Supremacist using the character for their own agenda. Bernthal kept it real simple “F— them.”

He also touched on gun ownership in America, while stressing the need for more open conversations on both sides of the political aisle.

“I’m a gun owner,” he said. “I have a gun in my house to keep my family safe. I’m trained in that gun’s use. I know how to keep it away from my kids, and I know how to use it if I need to.”

He followed it up with the darker side of guns. “Should there be a way that a guy with mental issues like the asshole in Texas can’t get guns? Absolutely. We have to have a dialogue, and that’s not happening.”

Season 2 for The Punisher will start production later this year.

Amy Schumer has decided to side with Colin Kaepernick.

Schumer joins the list of entertainers that have turned down the NFL. The actress/comedian announced she will not appear in Super Bowl ads this year as a sign of support for Colin Kaepernick.

“Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise, how are you not complicit?” she wrote in her Instagram post. “[…] I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them.”

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

Kyle Kuzma Signs Deal With GOAT To Wear Rare Nikes

Published

on

Los Angeles’ Lakers’ second-year forward Kyle Kuzma has signed a deal with GOAT, the world’s largest marketplace for authentic sneakers, making him the first athlete to partner with a sneaker reselling platform.

“GOAT has inspired me to start collecting more seriously and build my style around sneakers,” said Kyle Kuzma. “People assume that, as an NBA athlete, you can get access to any kind of sneaker you want. When in reality, it’s hard to get the exclusive releases or shoes from the past, and feel confident they’re authentic. GOAT gives me a second chance at not only the limited releases I missed, but also the shoes I wasn’t able to afford growing up.”
“GOAT has always celebrated great athletes,” said Eddy Lu, co-founder and CEO of GOAT. “Kuzma is emblematic of the passion, focus, and determination that reflect what it means to be great. We couldn’t be more proud to have Kuzma represent the GOAT brand, and inspire others both on and off the court.”
Since the NBA removed its restrictions on what color sneakers players can wear on the court.  The deal will allow Kuzma to wear any color combinations of rare kicks.
