Meghan McCain had an even worse weekend than Madison Cawthorn
How was your weekend? It was probably better than Meghan McCain‘s.Meghan–who is John McCain’s daughter, in case anyone forgot–was completely obliterated by Steve Schmidt on Twitter.It all started when the Washington Examiner reported that her new book “Bad Republican” has only sold 244 copies since its hardcover release last month.Related: Meghan McCain outdoes herself yet again in latest attempt at being basicWhen Schmidt pointed out this piece of factual information, Meghan responded in typical Meghan fashion… by liking a tweet someone wrote falsely accusing him being a pedophile.And that’s when John McCain’s 2008 campaign manager went off, declaring the former The View co-host a “spoiled rotten, entitled bully” and “fourth generation wannabe” who is wholly “unaccomplished” in life.“Everyone who has ever worked with Meghan McCain from ABC, The View, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and a thousand others have seen the unfiltered version of what the whole of America has seen,” Schmidt wrote, recalling the time he had her kicked off the McCain campaign’s plane in 2008 “because of her outrageous behavior.”But that was just the opening act.“I was the first adult that Meghan McCain ever encountered that she heard the word NO from,” he continued in a new thread about the then-24-year-old. “I told her she was unimportant and that the Presidential election wasn’t about her.”From there, Schmit detailed how Meghan’s own father “was appalled” by her behavior on the campaign trail.

Katie Piper speaks out on life after horror acid attack in Pride of Britain podcast
"We have all got it in our core, but we usually don’t tap into it until that’s the only choice we have left."At first Katie believed her ex-boyfriend had successfully sabotaged her modelling career, due to the impact the attack had on her appearance.However, she went on to have a successful career in the public eye, continuing to model and present on television, after harnessing her own self-belief."I do believe sometimes in life that the only answer is within you," she insisted."The only person that can make your life really bloody brilliant is yourself.”All of her self-belief paid off, as she was able to help those who had suffered similar incidents to make a physical and emotional recovery.Earlier this year, she received her honour from the Queen and issued a statement on her foundation website about the milestone and how far it meant she had come."This is without doubt, one of the happiest times of my life," she wrote after receiving it."I am so honoured to be recognised on the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list for services to charity and survivors of burns."She added: "I’m very proud to say that we’ve helped and rehabilitated thousands of survivors of burns and people with scars from traumatic incidents, with their physical and mental recovery."Funded purely by voluntary donations, we launched and founded the UK’s first and only live-in rehabilitation centre so that having a brighter future after burns can be for the majority, and not the minority of survivors.Offering a heart-rending message of support, Katie continued: "The charity and the honour is in my name, but so many survivors are at the heart of it all."This OBE is ALL of us.Thank you for following, supporting and joining my life’s journey.”Katie will now

JK Rowling accused of 'stirring hate' by Lesbian Visibility Week founder after tweet
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has faced backlash from LGBT+ campaigner and founder of Lesbian Visibility Week Linda Riley after sending out a tweet today.The writer has previously been criticised by LGBT+ groups and fans of her books about the wizarding world for her views on transgender rights. This morning, Rowling sent out a tweet to her 13.9 million followers, sharing a picture of her friend Allison Bailey marching for lesbian, gay and bisexual rights in San Fransisco back in 1991. She captioned the photo: “Lesbian Visibility Week starts today in the UK. “A good moment to salute the resilience and courage of my inspirational friend.”She then added the hashtag #IStandWithAllisonBailey in solidarity with the barrister.   Bailey is a divisive figure within the LGBT+ community due to her stance on trans issues.The lawyer describes herself as a “lifelong campaigner for racial equality, lesbian, gay, and bisexual rights”.She is currently suing the LGBT+ charity Stonewall on the grounds of discrimination, claiming the organisation is “policing free speech via its Diversity Champions scheme”.Soon after Rowling had tweeted out the image, Riley, founder of Lesbian Visibility Week, appeared to be angered by its contents.In view of her 76,600 Twitter followers she penned: “Wow! I certainly did not create #LesbianVisibilityWeek so that people like @jk_rowling could use it as a vehicle to stir up more hate within our community.  “This is a perfect example of #HowNotToBeAnAlly.”She also added the hashtags #IStandWithStonewall and #LWithTheT, which indicates the lesbian community standing in solidarity with the transgender community. The comments section under Riley’s post seemed to be split on her response to Rowling’s

Emma Watson and JK Rowling 'rift' claim 'rejected' by Harry Potter co-star amid trans row
Harry Potter creator JK Rowling and the cast, including Hermione Granger actress Emma Watson, following the author's vocal stance on trans issues. Additionally, Emma appeared to snub the author at the BAFTA Awards earlier this year, after she said that she is "here for all the witches" while presenting an award at the event, seemingly in reference to Rowling's criticism of Labour Leader Keir Starmer saying "trans women are women".It comes after Rowling faced backlash after taking to Twitter two years ago to mock an article which used the phrase, "people who menstruate" instead of "women".Additionally, last year celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter franchise's first installment.And while many cast and crew members were invited back to film scenes for the one-off taping, JK was nowhere to be seen.Instead, she appeared in archived clips taken from previous interviews as fans rushed to social media, under the impression JK had been snubbed from the reunion.Appearing on GB News earlier this year, Evanna attempted to dispel rumours of a rift between the cast and the creator of the wizarding world.The Luna Lovegood actress said: "I think there's things we don't all agree with and don't understand."The star went on to insist that despite a difference of opinion, they all respect each other.She continued: "I've talked to all the cast, they all have great respect for her even if they don't agree with her beliefs."I really strongly disagree with the narrative that there's a rift," she added.The star went on: "She has her beliefs and she's doing her thing.
