Danielle Bregoli , the 18-year-old viral star turned rapper who goes by Bhad Bhabie, has come forward with allegations of physical and mental abuse at a teen residential facility where she was sent after appearing on Dr. Phil in 2016. In an eight-minute video posted to her YouTube channel on Friday under the hashtag #BreakingCodeSilence, Bregoli shared her support for Hannah Archuleta , a former teen resident of Turn-About Ranch in Escalante, Utah, who is now suing the facility for negligence after alleged sexual assault by a staff member in 2019. Archuleta, like Bregoli, was sent to Turn-About Ranch after appearing on Dr. Phil. Bregoli begins the video by imploring Dr. Phil to issue an apology, “not only to me but to Hannah and any other child that you sent to Turn-About or any other program like this.” Dr. Phil sent Archuleta to Turn-About Ranch after it had been the site of a publicized murder in 2017, while Bregoli was there, which she says was “traumatic” for the young residents. In the video, Bregoli gives testimony about how she was sent to the ranch by transporters “who come in in the middle of the night. They don’t tell them where they’re going. They just take them, they handcuff them, they put them in the car. It’s basically like kidnapping.” Bregoli says that at the ranch, “they take away necessity privileges, like sleeping on a bed, eating good food, not being cold.” Bregoli says she witnessed kids being forcefully restrained, “which is against the law, you’re not supposed to touch the kids,” and that “if you reported another kid getting bullied by their peers or something, they would just say, ‘well maybe that’s what they need,’ or something like that.” Punishments included being subjected to cold and menial labor. “You’re not even feeding them or letting them sleep in decent conditions. Just doing things that no one would ever want done to their child, and doing it to kids that are so helpless,” says Bregoli. “That’s the thing … [Read more...] about Bhad Bhabie Details ‘Abuse’ at Utah Ranch Where

January 30, 2019 - 16:10 GMT Emmy Griffiths There are some great shows coming to Netflix, NOW TV and Amazon Prime in February 2019 like The Handmaid's Tale and Nightflyers - we're only sorry we won't have time to watch them all! Oh, is it too cold to go outside still? We guess that means we'll have to stick on the telly and catch-up on some of our favourite shows. Luckily, there are some brilliant ones coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime and NOW TV in February in the UK. From dystopian dramas to wholesome comedies, take a look through our top picks of shows to stream… Netflix American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace - 1 February Finally tune in and watch the show that has made perhaps the biggest wave during awards season, with Darren Criss (who plays Andrew Cunanan) picking up all of the awards. The series follows the real life assassination of fashion icon Gianni Versace at the hands of the serial killer, Cunanan, and examines the murderer's other victims, and his motives. It's very creepy, and if you liked The People vs. OJ Simpson, this is definitely the one for you. The Umbrella Academy - 15 February Seven super powered children are adopted by a billionaire, in the hopes that his new army might save the world. However, once the youngsters become teenagers, everything changes. Now in their thirties, the dysfunctional family are forced to join together to solve the mystery of their estranged father's death. From the mind of Gerard Way (from My Chemical Romance), this one looks like it'll be a total winner, so get in there before everyone knows about it! Nightflyers - 1 February Game of Thrones but in space? George RR Martin has swapped dragons for spaceships for his first television project since being the mind behind the most popular TV show of all time.

Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie. Photo: Paul_Archuleta/FilmMagic Danielle Bregoli, who you probably know as the teen whose Dr. Phil segment, “ I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime ,” launched her to viral fame and a music career, would like you to download her new mobile game. More specifically, she’d like you to “ pick up yo damn phone and download this, it’s free !” The “cash me outside howbowdah” originator, known also by her stage name Bhad Bhabie, is right. The game, Ride or Die , is free. Technically. But, as with most free phone games, this just translates to a barrage of ads. Ads where an errant tap will pull you from the game you’re playing to a screen where you’ll be prompted to download something else. At one point I tapped the word “skip.” I did not get to skip the ad I was watching. The App Store opened automatically instead. There are also the usual in-app purchase options, like buying your way out of watching ads or buying extra lives or different outfits. Photo: BBTV Interactive You play as a tiny, animated Bregoli, complete with dyed-red ponytail and acrylics, jumping from car to car, collecting cash and avoiding obstacles while the cops chase you. It’s reminiscent of the iPhone game Subway Surfers , a personal favorite of mine, in that the road ahead of you is divided into lanes. The comparison ends there, though. The controls for Bregoli’s game are hard to maneuver, and not in a way that becomes more fun once you figure things out and get a feel for it. If you die, an ad, or two, awaits you. I think the idea is to rack up enough cash to eventually upgrade your stolen vehicle. I maxed out at a boring sedan, before an overlong ad caused my eyes to wander over to Twitter and forget about the game entirely. I’m all for diversifying revenue streams, but this just ain’t it. Bregoli’s music career was a pleasant surprise. (“ … [Read more...] about Bhad Bhabie’s New Phone Game Is a Cash (Me Outside) Grab
Martin Luther King Jr. and Justin Bieber. Photo-Illustration: by Vulture; Photos by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images and Will Heath/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images The first voice on Justin Bieber’s new album, JUSTICE , isn’t Bieber — it’s Martin Luther King Jr., delivering his oft-quoted line, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” The line introduces a song called “2 Much,” a love song with lines like “Two seconds without you’s like two months.” It’s one of two speeches by Dr. King excerpted on JUSTICE and turning heads, along with a 104-second interlude of a 1967 sermon. “I still can’t get over Justin Bieber naming his album ‘Justice’ and using that MLK audio clip before transitioning into a Fame Monster leftover,” TV writer Kirk A. Moore tweeted . “Also, no one at the label thought to tell him… this ain’t it.” Podcast host Alex Lewis joked about Bieber and the U.S. government both “giving Black people ‘Justice’ but it’s really just MLK quotes.” And early reviews also took issue with Bieber quoting King on an album that largely seemed to be about his wife, Hailey. (Following the interlude, in which King talks about dying for justice, is a song called “Die for You,” on which Bieber sings, “I would walk through burning fire / Even if your kiss could kill me.”) “If you’re wondering why anyone thought it was a good idea to conflate civil-right martyrdom with the thought of succumbing to a hot woman, keep wondering,” Variety wrote in its review. “Hot goings-on, not What’s Going On ,” the Guardian headlined its review , referencing Marvin Gaye’s 1971 protest album. Bieber did appear to get permission to use the clips from the King estate. “Thank you, @justinbieber, for your support,” Dr. King’s daughter, Bernice King, tweeted , in response to Bieber’s announcement that he would partner with the King Center, among other social justice organizations. But other artists have had trouble using King speeches in … [Read more...] about Yes, Justin Bieber Put Two MLK Speeches on
