Dive In

They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us! Because they believe in us and what we’re doing! I’m on the phone with every f***ing studio at night, insurance companies, producers, and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs you motherf***ers. I don’t ever want to see it again, ever! And if you don’t do it you’re fired, if I see you do it again you’re f***ing gone.

That’s Tom Cruise totally losing it on the set of Mission: Impossible 7 because two of the crewwearing masksstood less than a meter away from each other at a computer screen. Some think he’s a Covid safety hero. Others say it’s a Scientology PR stunt. Still others insist his Scientology sins can never be washed away by an eff-laced rant in defence of humanity’s future.

Big Story

The ‘not Shaheen Bagh’ protest

The TLDR: A law student filed a Supreme Court petition asking it to issue an order for the “immediate removal” of the protesting farmers from Delhi’s bordersclaiming the situation is exactly the same as Shaheen Bagh. The Court surprised everyone by going in the exact opposite direction. It has instead appointed itself as the negotiator-in-chief and plans to break the deadlock.  So not Shaheen Bagh, then? 

We look at the court ruling and the parallels (or lack thereof) with Shaheen Bagh.
