When Joss Whedon took over directing duties on “Justice League”, he upset a lot of people. Especially RAY FISHER, who played Cyborg. Fisher has been very vocal about Whedon’s alleged abuses on the set. And a recent article about his allegations includes this new revelation: Whedon was also a jerk to GAL GADOT, after she objected to some of his script changes. A so-called “source” says, quote, “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.” Supposedly, Gal and “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins took their beef all the way to the head of Warner Brothers. Reached for comment, Gal would only say, quote, “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Brothers . . . handled it in a timely manner.”

Former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy thinks Charles Oakley’s jersey should be hanging in the rafters at Madison Square Garden. But Oakley wants no part of it. Oakley has said in the past that he doesn’t want his jersey to be retired at MSG and has declined the Knicks’ offer previously. He said QUOTE: “They came to me and said they were going to retire my jersey, do this and do that…And I’m like, ‘Nah, you can’t buy me that easy. If you retire the jersey, that benefits you, that ain’t benefitting me.'” Oakley says he prefers to have his jersey hanging outside MSG so all of New York can see it.
Former Giants and Florida State wide receiver Travis Rudolph was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder with a firearm. Palm Beach deputies showed up to a double shooting early Wednesday morning. When they arrived, they learned one male had been transported to the hospital while another was found dead near the area. After deputies identified Rudolph as a suspect, he was located, arrested and is being held without bond. Rudolph, 25, played college football at Florida State. After joining the Seminoles in 2014, Rudolph became the team’s leading receiver in 2015 and 2016. After his junior season, he declared for the 2017 NFL draft but wasn’t selected. He signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent. Rudolph caught eight passes for 101 yards in his seven games with the team. He also had short stints with the Dolphins and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.
Former Northeastern track and field coach Steve Waithe was arrested and charged on Wednesday for an alleged nude photo scheme involving female athletes. Waithe is formally being charged with one count of cyberstalking and one count of wire fraud. Waithe is accused of coming up with a scheme to “dupe female Northeastern University track and field athletes into sending him nude or semi-nude photos.” Waithe allegedly contacted athletes under the belief that they were conducting an athlete research or body development study, requesting photos with the athletes in a “uniform or bathing suit to show as much skin as possible.” Waithe also allegedly requested to use female athletes’ cellphones on multiple occasions, claiming he was filming their practices and meets. But rather than film, Waithe is accused of scrolling through photos and other documents on the athletes’ phones. Waithe used multiple different names as he continued the scheme and received “over 300 related nude and semi-nude images.” When some students started to figure things out, Waithe contacted victims with claims that he found compromising photos of them online. Waithe offered to help get the photos removed from the internet, though he then requested more naked photos he could use for “reverse image searches.”
