Awesome Twitter Thread Of “Nice Allegations” About Celebrities Gives Us Hope

It's rough out there emotion-wise, as day after day seems to arrive with fresh allegations that expose many of our famous faves as awful abusive creeps. So this Twitter chain wherein people share happy stories of fun celebrity encounters and anecdotes feels like balm for our wounds.

Alleged Abuser Jeremy Piven Says We’re Entering “Dark Times” of Accusations. No, Piv, The Dark Times Are Ending

Piven posted a statement to Twitter yesterday in which he denies the many accusations against him. He also offers to take a (notoriously unreliable) polygraph test. And that probably should have been the end of the statement. Unfortunately for him, he kept writing.

Celebrities Who Stood Up for Feminism in 2016

2016 wasn't ALL bad.

As we say goodbye to 2016, there's a lot of negative stuff to look back on, and a lot of times women were told they were less-than, in politics, on the internet, and in the media. But there were some bright spots, too.

New Zealanders Who Clicked on Nude Hack Links Got Hit With Malware, Possibly Broke the Internet

Somebody call the Karma Police, cuz THIS IS WHAT YOU GET.

Here at The Mary Sue we're pretty firm believers that no one should be clicking on links that advertise nude pictures from the celebrity hack last week, because those pictures were all stolen and that's a shitty thing to do. But you know what else is a good deterrent, for people who don't care about being shitty? The possibility of your computer getting hacked next.

Celebrity Photo Subreddits Banned In The Wake Of Last Week’s Theft

Welcome to our continuing coverage of "The Worst Month On The Internet."

A brief refresher, for those of you just now tuning into this ugly mess: Last week, nearly two hundred personal photos (many of them nude) were stolen from dozens of celebrities' iCloud accounts. The photos made their way to Reddit, where they gained particular traction in a subreddit known as "The Fappening." Yesterday, this particular subreddit -- as well as a number of related subs -- was banned.

HAH-ha! You're still assholes!

This whole thing with nude photos of dozens of celebrities being stolen and distributed for any jackass with an Internet connection to ogle has been a wretched hive of scum and villainy from start to finish. But this is one update—just one—that makes me smile.

More Celebrities Reading Meaner Tweets Are Hurtful and Hilarious

If there's one thing we like more than saying mean things about people more successful than us -- and we're not saying there is, because that is, like, a top five pastime around these parts -- it's watching celebrities debase themselves by reading mean things that other people have said about them on Twitter. Of course, it's not really celebrities debasing themselves, because the joke is really "Look how impotent the best attack you can muster on this person is! It is a joke that they will repeat themselves on national television, because who cares what you think @some_asshole_on_twitter?" Still and all, we do get a kick out of watching folks like Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston reading people's ill-conceived Internet slams on them in entertaining and only occasionally threatening fashion.

Nick Offerman, AKA Ron Swanson, Reads Tweets From Young Female Celebrities While Doing Manly, Outside Work

If you weren't aware, Nick Offerman, who plays manliest of men Ron Swanson on the excellent Parks and Recreation, is actually the manliest of men in real life as well; Ron Swanson seems to be largely based on Nick Offerman himself. So, what's a funny thing that the manliest of men could do? Sternly recite tweets of young female celebrities while doing manly woodwork outdoors. I think Conan has a gem of a segment here.

Celebrities Hilariously Read Insulting Tweets Out Loud [Video]

This digital age makes it painfully easy to connect with others. Social networking can help you stay in touch with your family across the globe, hunt down old friends, make new ones, and tweet really insulting things at celebrities. I don't know about you, but that last one is my favorite by far. In celebration of Twitter's 6th birthday, Jimmy Kimmel arranged for a few celebrities to come on TV and read a few offending tweets aloud. I'll leave you to watch how it unfolds on your own, but let's just say those tweets get de-fanged pretty easily.

Certain Celebrities are Protected from Having .XXX Domains Named For Them

As you may or may not be aware, ICANN gave its blessing to the .xxx top-level domain a few months ago which means that before you know it, there are going to be a lot of .xxx domains out there. There will not, however, be a lot of domains out there because a whole bunch of our famous friends have been given protection in the form of permanently reserved domains. For the moment, details are scarce. Neither the list nor the criteria for protection have been publicized, but through some Whois mumbo-jumbo, it's possible to dig up a partial list. It's worth noting that, for the time being, businesses will have to shell out a few hundred bucks for the same protection, but no one seems to know if these celebrity protections are pro bono or the result of a similar insurance purchase. Either way, .xxx domains, while lucrative, have to potential to cause a lot of people a lot of headaches so any anti-cybersquatting measures are a good idea. Partial list of protected domains below.

The Best Spanish Alan Moore Impersonator Wearing a Blue Bowler Hat You Will See All Day

There's a Spanish comedy show called "Muchachada Nui" that has a recurring sketch featuring parodies of celebrities called, well, "Celebrities." Recently, the celebrity they chose to lampoon was none other than Alan Moore, the shamanic, thoroughly bearded scribe behind Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta, among other works.

Now, whereas an American parody of Alan Moore might use the obvious comedic device of making fun of his personal quirks -- say, his worship of a snake-deity, or his anarchistic philosophy -- the Spanish Alan Moore parody does 'em one better by spinning into all-out-surrealism: their Moore wears a blue bowler hat which he can move using telekinesis, at one point dons a Guy Fawkes mask, V for Vendetta style, and devours a copy of From Hell, for reasons unknown.

Mostly, we're just excited to hear Alan Moore referred to as a "celebrity."
