Twilight actress Kristen Stewart is dealing with a PR nightmare this morning after comments she made during an interview with Variety were misconstrued. Stewart was asked about the lack of great roles for women in Hollywood to which she offered this response:

“Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something … Go write something, go do something. And that’s easy to say. It’s hard to get movies made. It’s a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies? But that subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, and it’s boring.”

Unfortunately, Variety unfairly used that quote to pass Stewart off as an establishment racist slamming those calling for more diversity at this year’s Oscars. The outlet’s spin led many on Twitter to nail Stewart to the cross.

While Variety has apologized for their mistake, Stewart will have to deal with their error for the foreseeable future. Her initial quote went viral, but the clarification from Variety has not. It’s an unfair painting of the actress, but a story we all know well in the digital age. Information is constantly being reshaped by news outlets to generate web traffic.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

on

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
