People are pissed!
Celebrities took to social media yesterday to take a stand, after President Trump revoked a bill Obama had put in place to protect transgender youth from discrimination in the education system. The federal law, known as Title IX, allowed transgender kids to use bathrooms and locker rooms that fit with their gender identity, regardless of the sex on their birth certificate, and the POTUS reversed that order on Wednesday.
Here are some of the celeb reactions:
Ellen Degeneres: "Just seeing the news about removing laws protecting trans people. This isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights, and it’s not okay.”
Ariana Grande: "Protect trans kids."
Brie Larson: "This is disgusting. This is unacceptable. I #StandWithGavin and every Trans person who deserve nothing less than protection and equality."
Lance Bass: "Right now, #LGBTQ students need to know we support them.Share a message of support and put #KindnessInAction."
Emmy Rossum: "THIS IS EVERYTHING WRONG WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION. @POTUS ACTS OUT OF FEAR AND HATRED OF EVERYTHING HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND. #RESIST."
Christina Applegate: "We are all humans having a human experience birthed the same way!to the communities affected,I stand with you. Always and forever."
Kathy Griffin: "Oh yeah! Because #trans students are the REAL threat. Jesus. #LGBT #LGBTQ #wtf @BetsyDeVosED @jeffsessions."
Interestingly enough, Caitlyn Jenner has said nothing! The transgender reality star is an outspoken Republican, despite the party's lack of support for LGBTQ rights. Time to wake up, Cait! The world isn't just coffee runs and girl time with your glam squad. Speak out for your community!

Kim Kardashian, sis Kourtney and her daughter Penelope and Kris Jenner honored their late father/husband Robert Kardashian's birthday Wednesday with a luncheon in Calabasas. But let's be honest ... we're less interested in the remembrance of Rob than we are the fashion!
Kim bundled up in a white Yeezy Season 5 puffer jacket, white track pants, a lace bodice bodysuit and Yeezy ankle boots. Kourtney chose a similar look, but she obviously prefers olive green to white -- she sported a Yeezy camo look on Monday.
Even little Penelope get into the game with her panda Adidas track suit. Adorbs!
Kim honored her dad on Twitter, with this sweet throwback ...
Kourtney posted this hilarious pic of her as a baby, with her very 70s parents ...
And the all-but-disappeared Rob Kardashian, posted this pic of his namesake ...
Gone but not forgotten!

We feel as if it's our duty to alert people!
Harrison Ford piloted a helicopter out of Santa Monica airport today, and he doesn't seem that concerned about the fact he could lose his license, pending an FAA investigation over his near-miss on the runway at John Wayne airport in Orange County last week. The actor almost collided with an airliner carrying 110 passengers, and thank God nothing happened, because it could have been bad!
The A-lister isn't just bad at flying in real life, take a look at his movies! He crashes in Air Force One
and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Perhaps he should call expert aviator Angelina Jolie for some lessons?

He's reporting for daddy duty once more!
Nick Cannon has welcomed a son with girlfriend Brittany Bell, the TV personality announced on Instagram. The little guy's name? Golden Sagon!
"Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning! No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappiness. Welcome to Earth Son!” he captioned a black and white snapshot of himself cradling the newborn.
The infant joins siblings Moroccan and Monroe, 5, from Cannon's marriage to Mariah Carey.
Congrats on the new addition!

She's no Kim K, but that's still pretty impressive!
Blac Chyna has dropped 40 pounds since giving birth to daughter Dream in November, and she celebrated by doing a naked photoshoot in bed. The former stripper says she wants to lose 20 more pounds to get down to her goal weight of 130 pounds by summer, and we have a feeling she'll do everything she can to make that happen, especially since she's back on the market following her split from Robert Kardashian.
Speaking of which, it sounds like the controversial couple is done for good this time around.
"Rob thinks it's the right decision. Chyna has disappeared for days at a time without communicating or providing any updates. This won't end well," a source dished to Us Weekly
. "[It's the same] with her yelling and screaming about how his family doesn’t like or support her, and his insecurities," the source added.
We wonder what her next move will be to stay in the headlines? We're guessing a hookup with French Montana is in the cards!

How did he afford his plane ticket? Just kidding... sort of.
Tyga caught a flight to London this morning, and we were shocked he didn't have Kylie Jenner in tow. They barely leave each other's side, and we think that's in large part because the rapper needs her to pay for everything. T-Raww is set to perform at the Electric Brixton festival while overseas, so at least he's making a little cash!
We love to poke fun at the hip hop star for being broke, but In Touch
claims we might be actually be wrong. The mag reports that the 27-year-old's net worth is $12 million, but we don't see how that's possible. His cars keep getting repossessed, he keeps being evicted from homes, and he's only had one real hit song with "Rack City."
We guess we're proud of him for getting out there and making some dough!

They're already getting Mama Madge's signature style!
Madonna is relishing in motherhood with newly adopted twin daughters Esther and Stella, and the singer shared this cute pic of the girls wearing matching track suits on Instagram. "Today's Blessing brought to you by Adidas! ⭐️🌟😂🌈🌈🎉🎉🌼🌼💝💝😂," she captioned the image.
The pop icon announced that she had officially added the 4-year-olds to her brood earlier this month.
"I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family. I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible, and I ask the media please to respect our privacy during this transitional time. 🙏🏻 Thank you also to my friends, family and my very large team for all your support and Love! 💘🦋🦋🌺🌼🌸🦋🦋🙏🏻🙏🏻✈️✈️😂🤣🦋🦋♥️🌺🎈♥️," she wrote on social media.
They had been living in an orphanage for two years before the 58-year-old filed to become their legal parent. Their father is still alive, but their mother died a week after child birth in 2012.
Now they're living large in a $40 million penthouse on the Upper East Side!

He got some new hardware!
Lamar Odom grabbed dinner with friends at Catch last night in LA, and the basketball star gave us a glimpse of his new gold tooth when he flashed us a grin on the way out. The athlete is looking happy and healthy following his rehab stint, and we're wondering if he's still hoping to win back Khloe Kardashian!
Rumor has it the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
star and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson are secretly planning a wedding, and she's worried that Lammy might cause a problem on her big day.
“[Khloe] is going to spend a small fortune on security for the wedding. But secretly, Kris [Jenner] thinks Lamar showing up could be great for ratings,” a source dished to Life & Style
"She and Tristan have talked a great deal about their wedding plans, and they can’t wait. They are totally in love, and a wedding is the next natural step. They’re willing to spend $2 million on a huge, extravagant event. Kris got dollar signs in her eyes when Khloé told her the news. She was up all night typing a wedding plan and ideas for a TV special,” the source added.
We're always going to be Team Lam Lam!
