Pervnado, Perv Nation, Pervnado, Perv Nation

Anyway, if you’ve been having a hard time keeping up with all the latest sexual harassment/assault allegations, New York City’s tabloid newspapers helpfully gave some of the key names associated with those allegations the front-page treatment over the weekend, as seen above. (Yes, folks, witness the tabloid editor’s eternal challenge: to draw eyeballs and sell papers with catchy, witty headlines even in an incredibly upsetting context. We salute you! Or something.)
Meanwhile, just to bring you fully(-ish) up to speed:
• “Gal Gadot will only be ‘Wonder Woman’ again if Brett Ratner is out,”per the New York Post’s Page Six.
• “Hundreds in Hollywood march against sexual harassment,” per ABC News.
• “Hollywood dreading awards season in wake of scandals,” per Page Six. (Seriously, let’s call the whole thing off for real, OK?)
Oh, and here’s today’s New York Daily News cover:
