We loved Patricia Arquette‘s acceptance speech, but there’s been some backlash at some of the remarks she made after winning her Best Supporting Actress award at the Oscars!
[ Related: The Oscars Was A Family Affair! ]
After discussing gender equality in her televised speech, the Oscar-winner made the following comments while speaking to reporters backstage:
“It’s time for us. It’s time for women. Equal means equal. It’s inexcusable that we go around the world and talk about equal rights for women in other countries when we don’t have equal rights for women in America. When they wrote the Constitution, they didn’t intend it for women. The truth is: even though we sort of feel like we have equal rights in America, right under the surface, there are huge issues that are applied that really do affect women and it’s time for all the women in America and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.”
While these remarks were not enjoyed by some critics, Patricia has since tried to expand upon her thoughts.
Patricia took to Twitter to clarify her remarks, and her words are even more inspirational:
What do U think about the whole ordeal??
Let us know if you’re team Patricia in the comments (below)!!!
We did not see this coming at all!
As we previously reported, Iggy Azalea spent the last few days living it up on vacation in Hawaii.
But when she got home on Wednesday, Iggy decided that she was fed up with social media and officially ended her ties with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and everything in between!
She shared the news with her fans in a series of seven tweets, ranting about all the people who constantly judge her body, saying:
At least she made sure to keep her fans in mind.
It sounds as though this is only temporary, so we wonder how long this boycott is going to last?
What do U think about Iggy’s decision to leave social media?
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!

Poor Taylor Swift, those hackers gonna hack, hack hack…
The Shake It Off singer had her Twitter and Instagram accounts viciously HACKED by an unknown person!
Well, not viciously, but still! Total violation of privacy!
T.Swift’s accounts started posting some strange happenings when she “tweeted” that fans should follow two different users.
Which is totally strange to anyone who follows her account already!
The tweets said:
So, fans KNEW something must have been up, but that wasn’t all the tricksters were planning on doing.
They got her Instagram next by posting TWO pictures telling followers to go to two different users pages and follow the accounts.
They looked like this:
Well, Swifty wasn’t about to play that game, so she contacts the proper authorities, obvi.
The singer posted to her tumblr account an update of what happened.
“Well, now I’m awake.
My Twitter got hacked but don’t worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords. Never a dull moment.”
This is going to be a long day.”
Oy veeeeeey! Poor Taylor!
Well, the hackers were finally thwarted, BUT apparently they’re now threatening to release NUDE IMAGES of Tay-Tay!
Have no fear, however, because she wants the world to know that those do NOT exist! She took to Twitter (when her account was recovered) and wrote:
Props to Hayley Williams of Paramore for looking out for Taylor!
Fingers crossed they catch the hackers!

We knew Captain America: Civil War was going to be hero vs hero, but we didn’t know Star-Lord was involved!
Srsly, why are Chris Evans and Chris Pratt fighting??
It all started when Chris (sorry, Evans — that’s going to get confusing) tweeted:
Are the Avengers taking on the Guardians Of The Galaxy??
Nope. This isn’t about super heroes, it’s about the Super Bowl! The New England Patriots are facing the Seattle Seahawks, and the Chrisses are down to duke it out!
Pratt was happy to hit back at Evans’s tweet, replying:
Ooh, burn! But that’s when Marvel stepped in, tweeting:
As everyone with families who root for different teams knows, no. Not until February 2. LOLz!

Amanda Bynes has returned to her tweeting throne.
After tweeting on Christmas of last year (it’s so weird that it’s 2015, right?), Amanda has come back to Twitter for the first time in the new year!

Her first tweet of ’15? This closeup one-eyed selfie!
The pic had no caption, but no caption needed! She looked AH-Mazing!

We’re still so shocked and saddened that SONY has decided to pull The Interview.

Likewise, Hollywood has also shared the frustrations by echoing a common sentiment that creative freedom seemed to have taken a back seat to fear.
The decision to pull the film comes after terrorist threats made by hackers now confirmed to have been working for North Korea.
Ch-ch-check out their responses (below)!!!
