Jodie Comer faces being Twitter ‘cancelled’ for reportedly dating a Trump supporter
Cancel culture has struck again.Angry Killing Eve fans have unleashed on actress Jodie Comer following unfounded reports the star is dating a man who aligns himself with the US Republican party and President Trump.
Comer, 26, whose character Villanelle from Killing Eve has become an icon among the queer community, has been labelled a “false activist and ally” in a number of tweets in light of rumours she’s linked to a Trump supporter.
The pile-on began on Wednesday, and was seemingly fuelled by unsubstantiated claims that Comer is in a relationship a man named James Burke who is said to support US President Donald Trump.

Comer, who won an Emmy for her chilling portrayal of Villanelle in 2019, is yet to respond.
The star has long remained tight-lipped on her private life.
In a vicious response to the whispers, Comer’s name began trending as fans called her recent support the Black Lives Matter “performative activism”.
One user wrote, “Jodie comer after posting the blm hashtag on her story once and recording a video for pride then going back to her republican boyfriend.“
Another added, “Jodie Comer dating a Trump supporter, while she’s portraying an LGBT character and reading poetry as an ‘ally’ is not only wrong but disgusting. Also her posts about BLM now look like performance activism.”
Last month, the star read out letters written between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West in a moving performance as part of celebrations for Pride Month in the US.
Comer was involved in Pride Inside, an online festival set up by Amnesty International, UK Black Pride, ParaPride, Gendered Intelligence and Stonewall.
Amid the sea of backlash today, some fans threw their support behind the actress:
The Killing Eve star opened up to British Vogue in March about her romantic life, revealing that after having been single for “a while”, she is now “in love”.
“I’m very much in it,” she said.
“I think love’s the best. I’d been single for a while and just kind of going with the flow and doing my thing.
“That’s the thing, isn’t it? When you’re relaxed and letting the universe do what it’s doing, things kind of fall into place,” she added.
Big Brother 2020: Kalgoorlie local Casey Mazzucchelli gets tattoo to commemorate stint on reality show – PerthNow

Big Brother has left its mark on axed WA contestant Casey Mazzucchelli.
Locked in a house with 13 strangers, Mazzucchelli bore witness to savagery and strategy while vying for the $250,000 prize pool.
But theKalgoorlielocal found herself booted from the Seven reality show on Tuesday night in a shock hung eviction.
But while friendsDaniel Gorringe and Mat Garrick couldnt save the 25-year-old, their alliance lives on beyond the cameras and the State border in a very permanent way.
Me and the boys have a bit of a saying, we say its pretty good so I, as the crash test dummy, Ive gone and got a little (tattoo) on my arm, Mazzucchelli told AAA.
I hope they follow!
But while it might seem like a drastic way to commemorate a five-week stint on a reality game show, fans of Big Brother would have noticed that the 25-year-old is dotted with colourful scribbles.
I think its somewhere close to 50, I honestly dont keep count (of how many tattoos I have), she confessed.
I pick the spot and then, like, a lot of the times I will draw the design, sometimes I get a specific idea … not even a single one has meaning, a lot of them are just like little doodles Ive drawn up, she admitted.
With just two weeks left in the game and only six contestants remaining, Big Brother will return to Seven on Monday night.
The Veronicas reflect on 15 years of making music: ‘It’s so much more than we ever thought it could be’ – 9TheFIX
It’s been 16 years since identical twin sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso formed their band The Veronicas.
In 2005, they released their debut single, ‘4ever’ a timeless anthem, beloved by Australians, which was certified platinum status by the Australian Recording Industry Association.
Now, three albums, two ARIAs, three MTVAAs, a wedding and a short hiatus later, they’re preparing to release their next record: Human.

On July 3, much to the delight of their fans, they released the album’s first single ‘Biting My Tongue’.
“This one is really about saying ‘I need to declare my undying love for you. No regrets,” Jess tells 9Honey Celebrity.
“Vulnerability is fearlessness,” adds Lisa. “To embrace that and realise that vulnerability is strength, by embracing that nothing feels better. Jess and I tend to say it all. We’d rather have no regrets, than ever wonder. We’ve always followed our hearts in that regard. We’d rather say too much than say nothing at all.”
And they don’t have any regrets.
In 2018, Lisa married actor Logan Huffman after four years of dating. They wed in a stunning vintage-inspired ceremony on the Sunshine Coast.

And a wedding is on the horizon for Jess too.
In November 2018, she announced her engagement to Kai Carlton. However, due to COVID-19, the couple haven’t seen each other in five months and the future is a little uncertain.
“My partner is in America and we’ve been apart for five months with no idea when we will see each other again,” Jess says. Despite the distance, Jess is focused on “living our relationship like we would.”
“You still cultivate loyalty, your love, creating date nights and having fun,” she explains. “Continuing to deepen the relationship. It’s a different way of doing it but it gives you a chance to cultivate that trust. I’m lucky I found someone who has that same focus as me.”
And while the wedding plans are on hold, they’re not too worried.

“If we were to sit and be stressed about the fact that we can’t get married right now, or we don’t know when we will see each other again We already have enough pain in our life with our mum not being well, it puts everything else into a greater perspective. I feel blessed to have a loving partner that I love and loves me. We get to celebrate our love in a different way. It’s difficult but it’s not that difficult.”
“For better or worse, you don’t have to be married to have that commitment. When you find a soul mate, distance and time can’t keep you apart,” Lisa adds.
That’s not to say distance has been easy.
“I have days where I melt down. I melted down last night. I just want to come home and have someone cook me dinner,” Jess jokes. “You miss those things where you don’t have to be independent all the time, but at the end of the day I’m so blessed.”

The Veronicas have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
“I think we’ll make music forever,” says Lisa. “We’re celebrating 15 years, and that’s an incredible achievement as artists and siblings. The highs and the lows. We pride ourselves on sticking together and creating from the space we always have.”
Looking back at a career that’s seen them grow up in the public eye, the sisters could never have imagined how much they’d evolve together. They had to become adults quickly in order to survive.

“Early on, we were young women in a pop industry in the USA where it’s incredibly competitive and dictated by men in corporate positions,” Jess says. “You experience things, and you have to have each other’s back. You have to become business women real quick, find your voice real quick and have each other’s back. You have to grow up quickly.
“Sometimes I look at solo artists, and think, ‘Thank God I didn’t have to do it alone.’ When one of us is having a harder time, the other one steps up and brings the other up.”
The Veronicas hope that their new album provides some respite during difficult times.

“As far as what’s happening around the world, we’re trying to create music that impacts people in some way. It’s a personal relationship, and it’s a personal thing for Lisa and I,” Jess says. “I think now more than ever we need music to go internal and help cope. Either way music is so healing.”
“Creating an online space where fans can come together and listen and feel part of a community,” adds Lisa.
“It feels like a completion of something,” Jess said. “We’ll move on from that, but that will stay captured forever. That’s why it’s called Human, because it’s about being human.”
Human is slated to be released sometime this year.
