Guess Which Snapchat Filter Allegedly Caused A Car Crash?

Snapchat on a smartphone
Snapchat filters are one of the signature pieces of the social network, but now one of them is part of a lawsuit.

The filter of concern is the one that shows how fast you are going.

It's fun when someone Snaps from an airplane and they're going 500+ miles per hour! But now a teen allegedly got into a car accident because they were trying to post a really high speed on Snapchat.

The lawsuit suggests that Snapchat should have known that people would drive too fast just to show a high speed. That's a big leap. Couldn't you just as easily snap a photo of the speedometer while you were driving that fast? Wouldn't that make the car manufacturer liable?

Don't get me wrong - I absolutely believe that people probably try and drive fast to get Snapchat to show the speed, but I don't think Snapchat is at fault for that.

The Unrated Version Of 'Batman V Superman' Is How Long!?!

Ben Affleck
In case the theatrical version wasn't long enough for you, the R-Rated home release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will make you very happy. It's going to be 181 minutes, which clocks in at just above 3 hours. It's also going to be a little more violent, hence the R-Rating.

I don't mind when they make movies for home viewing that long, but let's keep the theater versions at around 2 hours. I like to spend $28 on a giant soda, and I know you won't pause the movie just for me to go to the bathroom.

Kobe Bryant Makes First Appearance Since Retiring, And It's A Prank

Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant's first appearance since retiring came on Ellen, and as she often does she used her guest for a prank.

The idea was that Kobe meets with an Aesthetician about Botox because he was sweating too much - That's the "real" reason he retired. Watch:



It's pretty well done - Ellen tells him what to say including things like, "I'd stand up but I'm too tall." Then it gets even better - I'm impressived Kobe was able to keep a straight face!

Why #WomanCard Is Trending Today

Hillary Clinton
If you've seen #WomanCard trending anywhere today and wondered why, here's the story.

After his big wins on Tuesday, Donald Trump seems to be turning his attacks towards Hillary Clinton. He was quoted as saying that all Hillary has going for her is the "woman card." 

Hillary replied perfectly saying, "“If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!”

If Trump Wins, These Celebrities Might Flee The U.S.

Donald Trump

Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland and Delaware all voted for Trump over Cruz and Kasich yesterday, giving him an even bigger lead in the party’s delegate count.

But this post isn't about politics, it’s about Hollywood. 

Several celebrities have come out saying if Donald is elected President, they will move out of the country. What will we do?

Girls star Lena Dunham now says she’ll move to Vancouver. “I can get my work done from there.” 

Other stars who have pledged to relocate if Trump wins the White House include Miley Cyrus, Jon Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson and Cher.

If a celebrity endorsement matters to you in your voting process, which it shouldn't, Kerry Washington, Chris Brown, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Josh Groban, Demi Lovato, Common, America Ferrera, Jack Black, Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller, Jennifer Lawrence, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Sarah Silverman, Shakira, Richard Gere, Bette Midler and Louis C.K. have all publicly denounced Trump.

No word yet on if anyone on that list is house shopping in Canada in an effort to be Lena's neighbor.

Are You Ready To Share Your 'STD Status' On Tinder?

Consumer with an iPhone

This is not totally crazy. Mately, a subscription-based STD testing service, is planning to launch an Indiegogo campaign for a dating app. They want to change how we date online to include an STD status. 

The idea is that members can privately share their STD test results with people who they meet on dating apps like Tinder.  

The promo video below makes a good point, “When it comes to our sexual health, shouldn't we have information we can trust?" 



In the video they describe the system as being perfect, but anyone with half a brain could find ways to cheat the system. Creepy, huh?

Prince's Paisley Park Estate Will Become The 'Next Graceland'

Prince
According to Prince's family, his Paisley Park Estate will be turned into a museum in Prince's memory. They spoke about how he was a very private person, but that he would have wanted his music remembered.

Prince’s longtime collaborator, Sheila E., confirmed the plan in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “We’re hoping to make Paisley what [Prince wanted] it to be. [He] was working on it being a museum,” she said. “He’s been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle.”

Paisley Park reportedly has a recording studio, a private nightclub and a meditation space called the Galaxy Room. There’s also said to be “a lot of purple,” yet there’s much about the home that most people know nothing about. I wish I could go tour it right now - How cool would it be to see it untouched? Heck yeah I'm nosy!
  FOX5 Vegas - KVVU
How soon would you be able to see it? It took 5 years for Graceland to open after Elvis Presley's death. I'm guessing they could do this one a little faster.
