Game Of Thrones In Trouble!? Hackers Threaten To Leak Future Episodes Of HBO Properties After Major Cyber Attack!

White Walkers are coming to Westeros. But HBO is facing battles on its own forefront against an enemy worse than the Army of the Dead — hackers!

According to EW, the premium cable network has suffered a major cyber attack, with hackers posting upcoming episodes of a couple series and at least one script or treatment online. Related: Game Of Thrones Kills Off MORE Fan Favorites! In even graver news (depending on where your morality lies), the hackers who breached the company's systems are threatening to leak again! HBO is investigating the incident and working with agencies to protect its data, confirming in a statement: "HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information. We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold." The hackers claimed to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the network. This includes an upcoming episode of Ballers and Room 104, which have apparently been put online. Though the biggest attack is the leak of written material allegedly from the upcoming fourth episode of Game Of Thrones! Related: Mariah Carey's Bodyguard Facing Battery Investigation! HBO is not specifying what titles may have been stolen. On Monday, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler sent an email to employees regarding the breach, writing: "As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming. Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests. The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of. As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully." The hack was sent in an anonymous, jovial email to reporters on Sunday, reading: "Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What's its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling." XOXO, Euron Greyjoy? As of now, no GoT episodes have leaked. So, it's not clear whether the hackers actually have the HBO flagship property in their clutches. Hopefully execs find the Dragonglass equivalent of whatever destroys hackers. Fresh air, maybe? [Image via HBO.].....»»

Trump Wants Police Officers To Be MORE Violent To "Thugs"!

Police brutality has been a huge conversation in America throughout history, and the president is finally speaking up about it. But of course when Donald Trump opened his butthole mouth on the subject, it was to say that he felt police weren't brutal ENOUGH to the "thugs" they arrest!

But of course when Donald Trump opened his butthole mouth on the subject, it was to say that he felt police weren't brutal ENOUGH to the "thugs" they arrest! Video: Maxine Waters Take Trump's Treasury Secretary! POTUS spoke in front of law enforcement officers on Long Island, New York on Friday to discuss efforts to combat the violent MS-13 gang, and received resounding applause when he promoted police brutality. While thanking the officers on all the great work they do in keeping the streets safe -- something we all commend -- the president took a nose dive into Trumpsanity suggesting the officers should hit suspects' heads on the doors of their police cars. He mused: "When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, ‘Please don't be too nice.' Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head, I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?'" The room responded to his remarks with applause: President urges officers to commit acts of brutality, officers laugh and cheer wildly. Beginning to think problem isn't a few bad apples. pic.twitter.com/o1sSgw6lGy — Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) July 28, 2017 Though, to be fair, the suspect in Trump's hypothetical scenario HAD just killed someone. Not to mention, the MS-13 gang has severely affected the Long Island community recently, as civilians have been rocked by a string of high-profile murders in the area. Related: Trump Blindsided By Republican Senators! The Shit-Stirrer in Chief continued to say that his administration would be "changing" laws to no longer protect the criminals, adding: "For years and years, [laws have] been made to protect the criminal. Totally protect the criminal, not the officers. You do something wrong, you're in more jeopardy than they are. These laws are stacked against you. We're changing those laws… We're going to enforce our laws, protect our borders and support our police like our police have never been supported before." Yup, this all goes back to border protection. The president has often spoken about the "criminal cartel" MS-13 -- which has origins in Central America -- and its relationship to illegal immigration. No one is arguing that the MS-13 is a problem, though some experts have raised concerns about the Trump administration using the gang to justify its controversial immigration policies. As for Trump's police brutality comments, there's a huge difference between rallying officers and encouraging "rough rides" like the ones that killed Freddie Grey and Philando Castile.

Hundreds of thousands of thirsty commenters gushed over the heroic hunks -- but now, many are taking back their admiration. Why? Because one of the pretty officers is actually pretty anti-Semitic! Related: Chainsaw Nun Becomes Internet Icon Following Irma! According to The Sun, old posts from the personal Facebook page of Officer Hamill (the middle one with the beard) show he made some really messed up Jewish jokes a few years ago. In a screenshot of an April 2013 post, Hamill allegedly wrote: "Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well. Here is one for everybody, ‘What's the difference between boy scouts and jews?' Anybody know? Well it is because ‘Boy scouts come back from their camps.'" After a user replied to the post calling it "messed up," Hamill replied back, "u don't like it? don't read it then." Ugh... that shrunk us right up. Related: Twitter Is Horned Up Over CNN's Chris Cuomo In A T-Shirt! This wasn't the future officer's first offense, either. In another screenshot from a 2001 post: "so I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality it's YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha." Ick. This is just like that time the internet discovered Ken Bone's creepy Reddit posts last year... except Hamill's posts are, like, 6 million times worse. GPD spokesman Ben Tobias said the department is reviewing a complaint against Hamill, who was sworn in as an officer in October 2016, adding that the agency would not comment until it completes an investigation: "The Gainesville Police Department prides itself with our philosophy and mission of compassion, inclusion, and respect and will fully review the matter." Well, we guess we can cancel our pre-order of the "Hot Cops of Gainesville" calendar... [Image via Facebook.].....»»

On Wednesday, he published a letter on social media accusing authorities of "excessive use of force," and solely targeting him "for no other reason that I am black." Related: Video Shows Nurse Arrested For Refusing Illegal Blood Sample That same day, the Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. undersheriff Kevin McMahill held a press conference justifying their decision to confront the football player, and says there is "no evidence that race played any role in this incident." On Thursday, the president of the Las Vegas Police Protective Association -- Nevada's largest police interest group -- wrote an open letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell demanding they take action against the 31-year-old and his "false allegations." The letter read: "On behalf of the rank and file members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, I request that you conduct an investigation, and take appropriate action, into Michael Bennett's obvious false allegations against our officers... While the NFL may condone Bennett's disrespect for our American Flag, and everything it symbolizes, we hope the League will not ignore Bennett's false accusations against our police officers." Additionally, the organization says Michael's claims of racism are "offensive to the men and women of law enforcement."

Top 10 Stupidest Internet Challenges

Memes are a fantastic form of communication. A simple image that is reminiscent of a previous meme is usually instantly recognized and regarded as funny. The collective awareness involved in that is an incredible demonstration of how limitless human communication is. It’s all very nerdy and cool. But, if that is what memes have become, internet challenges are the embarrassing cousin no one likes to claim. Some internet challenges make kids look abundantly ridiculous, which is bad enough, but some of them put teens in legitimate danger. You can read about these dumb ghosts of internet challenges past below. There’s no reason anyone should ever try any of them. The Cinnamon Challenge It is tough to believe that more than a decade has passed since this took the internet by storm. It involved eating a teaspoon (or maybe just an ambiguous “spoonful” it was ten years ago give me a break) of cinnamon. Without drinking anything. Cinnamon is kind of spicy in high concentrations, but it’s also hydrophobic. As in afraid of moisture. This dried out throats and induced a lot of choking all over Youtube and for what? No one remembers you now. The Saltines Challenge Once upon a time, in a far-off decade called the 90’s, Peyton Manning was a nobody. For some strange reason, someone decided to bet him that he couldn’t eat six saltines in under 60 seconds. This story was shared a few times over the years, about how diligently he practice until he was able to accomplish such a majestic task. Eventually, it joined ranks with the cinnamon challenge. People young and old were once again choking for their share of 15 minutes. Had they learned nothing? The Milk Challenge This one is so utterly disgusting that I prefer not to acknowledge it as a real thing that happened. To my dismay, there is proof spread far and wide into the depths of 2012 Youtube. Why did the Mayans let us down? It’s physically impossible to drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour. Takeru Kobayashi, a man who literally eats for a living, published a video of him drinking an entire gallon of milk in just 20 seconds. This sparked a challenge across the internet in which young folks tried to repeat the gesture. As people realized how impossible it was for the untrained stomach to contain that volume, the timespan kept growing. A minute. Ten. An hour. Kids tried and subsequently puked milk everywhere without fail. The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge How Kylie Jenner has achieved her “iconic” lips is heavily discussed across the internet for whatever reason. Let her live. Teenagers in 2015 decided to attempt to emulate the look by literally vacuuming their lips in a glass. This challenge produced many injuries that were truly disturbing to have to look at. It got so bad that Kylie herself, and the director of dermatologic surgery at New York Medical College spoke out against it. Just 60 seconds of this type of pressure on such fragile blood [...] The post Top 10 Stupidest Internet Challenges appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»
