The ‘Rude’ Amy Schumer Fan Strikes Back
Amy Schumer almost gave up taking pictures with fans because of one pushy guy in Greenville, South Carolina. Amy posted a picture of the man on Instagram, and explained what happened.
This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the shit out of me. Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said ” no it’s America and we paid for you” this was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville.
But she dialed it back after getting support from her fans:
Thanks for the kind words and support. I know there are bigger problems in the world. But this was not right pic.twitter.com/8fqoIm7sHC

Sinead O’Connor Says Arsenio Hall Was Prince’s Drug Dealer
Sinead O’Connor has a big lead for the investigators looking into Prince’s death. She says they should hit up his sort of famous drug dealer. In a Facebook post, she said, quote, “Two words for the DEA investigating where Prince got his drugs over the decades: Arsenio Hall. “Anyone imagining Prince was not a longtime hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio, I’ve reported you to the Carver County sheriff’s office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave.” Arsenio’s rep responded a few hours later, quote, “The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.” Eddie hasn’t commented. Now, Sinead isn’t the most reliable source on anything, but when it comes to providing an interesting rant on Facebook, Sinead, nothing compares 2 u.
Coincidentally, Arsenio talked to “Access Hollywood” just before Sinead’s Facebook rant, and he talked about how Prince dealt with hip pain. Get more here.

“Space Jam 2” with LeBron James is Happening
It’s not a rumor anymore: “Space Jam 2” with LeBron James is happening. There’s no word when it’ll hit theaters, but it’s going to be directed by Justin Lin, who did three of the “Fast and Furious” movies and the upcoming “Star Trek Beyond”. It’s hard to believe, but the original “Space Jam” is 20 years old. It was released in 1996, and had Michael Jordan teaming up with Bugs Bunny and the other Looney Tunes to take on a team of aliens on the basketball court.
