Some moron in Australia is making headlines today after rolling to the Australian Open dressed in Blackface. Even more shocking is that the woman photographed below appears to be a fan of Serena Williams, holding a “Keep Calm and be Serena” sign.

“Lost for words,” one person tweeted in response to the image, with another user adding, “WTF WHITE PEOPLE.”

The “fan” was in attendance for Serena’s semifinal match against Agnieszka Radwanska. Williams is scheduled to square off against Angelique Kerber during Saturday’s final.

Unfortunately, Blackface in tennis was also a hot topic back in 2015 when fans of Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios were enthusiastically spreading Vegemite and Nutella on their faces to show support for his Wimbledon run. Asked about the trend at the time, Williams said during a press conference, “I think you’re better asking the fans that question. Maybe they can give you some insight. And let me know, I’d be interested to know.” So would we.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
