Rohingya Refugees Sue Meta for $150 Billion, Citing Facebook’s “Negligence” in Myanmar Crisis

A combined lawsuit from Rohingya refugees in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world could make Facebook pay billions after hate speech proliferated on the platform and incited violence in Myanmar. According to the Associated Press, Rohingya refugees are suing Meta, Facebook’s parent company, for more than $150 billion, with lawyers filing a class-action suit in California on Dec. 6. Lawyers in the U.K, meanwhile, say they intend to file similar legal action.

What does the word “queer” mean to you? The Internet sounds off…

Certain website names notwithstanding, the word “queer” is polarizing. For some LGBTQ+ individuals, it’s a reclaimed badge of honor, a political statement, a declaration of attraction without binaries. For others, it’s still a homophobic slur, a weaponized word that can reopen years-old wounds. When one Reddit user asked others what “queer” means to them, he clarified he wasn’t referring to the derogatory sense of the term. But some commenters can’t see the word any other way.

Peng Shuai: Tennis Officials Still Concerned After Her Reappearance

Tennis star Peng Shuai—a Chinese athlete with a reported net worth of $1.5 million—reappeared in photos and video footage over the weekend following nearly three weeks out of public view. However, sports officials are still concerned for the 35-year-old athlete. “It was good to see Peng Shuai in recent videos, but they don’t alleviate or address the WTA’s concern about her well-being and ability to communicate without censorship or coercion,” a Women’s Tennis Association spokesperson said.

24 Behind-the-Scenes Facts About '24,' Now 20 Years Old

That ticking clock doesn’t lie: It’s been two decades since 24 debuted. And those 20 years have not always been kind on the Fox action drama. Premiering on November 6, 2001, just weeks after the September 11th attacks, 24 followed Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) as he and his colleagues at the fictional Counter Terrorism Unit saved the world from terrorist plots over the course of 24 hours, with the action playing out in real-time across 24 episodes a season.

The Ad-Libbed Humor of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Is “About the Spontaneity of the Moment”

For many television comedies, the laughs come from a roomful of comedians who obsess over every script to punch up each punchline. But the HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm is mostly improvised, believe it or not. For 10 seasons now, the HBO comedy has shown Larry get into one embarrassing situation after another as the Seinfeld co-creator rubs elbows with Hollywood elite. And because each episode’s storyline is only outlined in broad strokes, it’s up to the performers to bring the funny.
