Michael Costello Releases Another Statement Following Alleged Racial Slur

Published

Michael Costello came under fire this week after allegedly calling up and coming designer, Maxine James the N-word.

“Your probably just a n*gger lover defending her,” he apparently wrote to a fan after being accused of stealing one of Maxine’s dress designs. “I am royalty b*tch! I dressed Beyonce! Who are they gonna to believe!”

Michael first responded, claiming that “the hurtful screenshot circulating is fake and does not represent my views on society, nor do I condone the use of such a terrible term.” The designer’s team has since sent HipHollywood a new statement, proving that the Instagram post was indeed photoshopped.

“The image of concern was distributed by an Instagram account that has continually harassed and slandered Costello in an attempt to defame his character. His family, brand and employees have all fallen victim to attacks from the account,” Michael’s lawyer Neama Rahmani tells HipHollywood. “It is believed that a disgruntled intern, who is no longer employed with the company, created the account.”

“Fortunately, Instagram has been very cooperative in working with Mr. Costello to delete accounts created by the people who created the false picture and who are attempting to disseminate it. Mr. Costello and his attorneys will continue working with Instagram and the legal system to bring these cyber bullies to justice.”

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
