‘Stranger Things’ bar receives nerdy cease-and-desist letter from Netflix

When it comes to scary things in the Upside Down, it turns out that a Demogorgun is no match for intellectual property lawyers.

>> Read more trending news

“The Upside Down,” A “Stranger Things”-themed pop-up bar in Chicago, has been hit with a cease-and-desist letter from Netflix after it was found in violation of intellectual property laws because it never received Netflix’s blessing.

But Netflix didn’t sent just any cease-and-desist letter. No, they got in on the spirit of the show with a nerdy, yet firm, directive for the bar’s owners:

The bar, designed by the same folks that created the Windy City’s Emporium Arcade Bar, debuted on Aug. 18 in Logan Square. According to Eater Chicago, patrons of “The Upside Down” can order show-themed drinks, such as “Eleven’s Eggo’s,” served with a waffle wedge; and a drink named for the Demogorgun, the show’s big monster.

Fans of the show’s theme music from Austin band S U R V I V E can indulge in a few kegs of Goose Island’s GI5-5538, a red ale that was brewed specifically for the band. 

The bar is also decorated with a ton of “Stranger Things” memorabillia, including a huge mural of Eleven, the Byers family couch, Christmas lights (complete with the alphabet), an A/V rig and some props designed to look like the Hawkins Energy Department. Check out photos of the bar here.

As one might guess, having all of this out in the open without permission would be cause for some concern from Netflix. The bar was originally scheduled to close after a six-week run, with plans for an extension if it was profitable. As it stands now, the bar will close on Oct. 1.

Nevertheless, this looks like a win-win for the bar and the streaming service. The second season of “Stranger Things” debuts next month, and the letter does leave future pop-ups open to consideration, so both groups get publicity.

So, Chicago, start pedaling your bikes over to the bar before the portal to the Upside Down closes. And Austinites, you’ve got 10 days to get yourself a flight to Chicago.

When he rang the doorbell to return the wallet, no one answered, because Vang was afraid to go to the door, but surveillance video captured Opdyke holding up the wallet .

‘This is Halloween decoration, not dead body,’ police warn public

Sheriff’s deputies in Tennessee on Wednesday posted a friendly warning to county residents that, as Halloween approaches, not everything in their community is as it seems. 

Officials with the Greene County Sheriff’s Department posted a photo to the department’s Facebook page that shows a dummy dressed in men’s clothing lying on a driveway, positioned so it looks like the man’s head was chopped off by the home’s garage door. Red splatters and bloody-looking handprints mark the door above the dummy.

“Attention, everyone! For those of you driving on Chuckey Pike in Green County: THIS IS A HALLOWEEN DECORATION!” the warning reads. “Do NOT call 911 reporting a dead body. Instead, congratulate the homeowner on a great display.”

Many of the department’s followers got a chuckle out of both the display and the warning.

“The fact the police department had to make this announcement means more than enough people called,” one man wrote. 

Department officials responded to the man’s comment, as well as others’ questions asking if someone really did call 911.

“The call was given out as a ‘suspicious person lying in a driveway with bloody handprints on the garage,’” the response read. “Officers responded with lights/sirens until the first officer arrived to see this.”

Another of the department’s followers wrote that she and her family did a similar prank one year using the deck of their home.

“We dressed (a) dummy and had it looking like (it was) falling off the deck,” the woman wrote. “Got lots of response.”

Other commenters did not find the Halloween prank as funny.

“I might be a buzzkill, but I just don’t think this is a good idea,” one woman wrote. 

She wrote that pranks like the one pictured could result in someone truly injured being ignored and not getting the proper aid.

“I’m good with pumpkins and such, but I would leave the horror in Hollywood,” the woman wrote

Jada Pinkett Smith responds to Leah Remini’s claim that she’s a Scientologist

Jada Pinkett Smith is denying she is a Scientologist after former member Leah Remini claimed she was one.

Remini, whose reality show, “Scientology and the Aftermath” examines the experiences of former members leaving the controversial church, made the claim about Pinkett Smith in a Saturday interview with The Daily Beast.

“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time,” Remini said. “I never saw Will (Smith) there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”

According to The Daily Beast, Pinkett Smith did not return multiple comment requests.

By Tuesday, however, The Huffington Post reported that the actress responded to Remini’s claims on Twitter.

Although she acknowledged she has studied Dianetics, Scientology’s main text, and Study Technology, a teaching method developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, she also said she’s studied and participated in aspects of other religions as well.

Remini has not responded to Pinkett Smith’s rebuttal. Pinkett Smith ended her Twitter thread with what some may interpret as a direct response to Remini’s claim.

“I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not,” she tweeted, “NO ONE ELSE can hold that power.”

Fergie said it was ‘weird’ pretending she was still with Josh Duhamel

While promoting her upcoming album, “Double Dutchess,” singer Fergie is addressing her split from husband Josh Duhamel.

The couple, who were married for eight years before separating, announced the separation long after they were actually apart. The timing meant Fergie, 42, and Duhamel, 44, had to respond to questions about each other when in public as though they were still together.

“Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions,” Fergie told People Tuesday while making the rounds promoting her album.

“We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird,” she said. “There’s no perfect time, so we just decided to do it. We just wanted to get adjusted in private.”

The parents to son Axl Jack, 4, announced the separation Sept. 14 in a joint statement.

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” the statement said. “To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

Fergie went on to say co-parenting with the actor is going well, and their son’s school has helped with the process.

“We have a co-op so Josh and I would walk there several times before the school season. I get to learn from the teachers and see how he reacts in a group of friends that he knows. And I get to help out and serve them snacks and clean the dishes. We have fun, we get down and dirty and read the stories with our costumes. You get down in the sand and get dirty -- I love it. I love that part of it all.”

“Double Dutchess,” the followup to Fergie’s 2006 debut album, “The Dutchess,” is set for release Sept. 22.

Officers’ ‘It’-themed photo takes ‘hot cop’ challenge to scary new level

As law enforcement agencies across the country continued to post “hot cop” photos this week in attempts to best one another, one California police department upped its game to a spooky level.

The Lincoln Police Department on Friday posted a photo to Facebook that meshed the “hot cop” challenge started by Gainesville, Florida, officers during Hurricane Irma and the wildly successful big screen version of novelist Stephen King’s “It.” 

The photo shows four of its officers standing on a street, one of the officers is reaching down to the pavement. On the asphalt is a line of tasty-looking doughnuts leading to a nearby drainage culvert.

In the culvert is someone dressed as the villain in “It,” Pennywise the Clown. Nearby floats one of Pennywise’s trademark red balloons. 

The photo caption reads, “Ok, Gainesville had the ‘hot cops’ and Loudon had the ‘cop on a bucket,’ so the Lincoln (CA) Police Department decided to join the fun.”

“Clown: ‘Hey guys, I have donuts down here!’”

As the officer reaches for the first in the line of doughnuts, a colleague tries to pull him to clown-free safety.

As of Wednesday, the photo had been shared nearly 200,000 times and garnered about 171,000 reactions, all positive. The image also earned some jokes from commenters.

“But, like, is the clown hot?” one woman asked.

“Looks like a trap,” another commenter said. 

“With sprinkles!” one man added. 

“But why did they put perfectly good donuts on the ground?” another woman asked.

“Donut go down there!” one commenter warned.

The photo from the Lincoln police officers is the latest in a string of pictures challenging a selfie posted by Gainesville officers earlier this month as they prepared for a 12-hour shift at the height of Hurricane Irma. The photo, posted on Facebook, had commenters praising the officers’ looks and offering to be arrested to get closer to the men. 

The Gainesville photo was removed from Facebook after one of the officers, Officer Michael Hamill, came under fire for alleged anti-Semitic posts on his personal Facebook page. He has been suspended while the department investigates the claims. 

In the days since the Gainesville photo went viral, however, departments across the country have offered their own photos of their finest. On Tuesday, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office in southeast Louisiana posted a photo of their finest looking K-9 officers.

“K-9s Hoss, Baretta and Mako wanted in on the #HotCop competition, but they hope to start a new hashtag: #HotDogs!” the caption read. 

In another post, Loudon, Tennessee, police officers pose for the camera. One particularly short officer stands on a bucket.

“Loudon Police Department Adam Squad. We ain’t pretty, but we get the job done,” the post reads.

The challenge has become so popular since the post by the Gainesville officers that it has spawned a Facebook page of its own, Hot Cop Challenge. The page had just over 1,000 followers as of Wednesday. 

Jennifer Lawrence responds to critics after movie gets 'F' grade

Jennifer Lawrence is typically a box-office draw, but not even she could save “Mother!”

But when asked by “Entertainment Weekly” about the lackluster response to “Mother!” the Academy Award-winning actress said:

“The people who love it, love it and want to see it another time. The people who don’t like it, absolutely despise it ... There is no middle ground. We knew that it was divided. That’s what’s so exciting -- everybody is going to feel something. It’s going to create a conversation. It’s going to create a controversy. Nobody is going to leave not getting something from it.”

Paramount Pictures, which distributed “Mother!” released an official statement that called the film “very audacious and brave.”

Popular movie critic site Rotten Tomatoes awarded the film a rating of 68 percent out of 100.

“There's no denying that ‘Mother!’ is the thought-provoking product of a singularly ambitious artistic vision, though it may be too unwieldy for mainstream tastes,” the Rotten Tomatoes critic consensus reads.

Twitter users were divided about the movie.

Jimmy Kimmel: Senator ‘lied right to my face’ about healthcare

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had harsh words for a lawmaker who told him that he’d put all health care bills under what the senator called the “Jimmy Kimmel Test,” then announced his support that many believe goes against that pledge.

>> Read more trending news 

Kimmel , during Monday night’s show, said that Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) “lied right to my face” when the senator talked about his “test” on any health care bill proposed back in May. The test would make sure that “No family should be denied medical care, emergency or otherwise because they can’t afford it.”

Kimmel said that, “He [Cassidy] agreed to that. He said he would only support a health care bill that made sure a child like mine would get the health coverage he needs, no matter how much money his parents make.”

Cassidy teamed up with Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dean Heller (R-NV) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) for the bill that, according to Cassidy, repeals Obamacare and replaces it with grants that are given each year to states to help the population pay for health care, CNN reported.

The grants will be run through the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. 

Cassidy, during his appearance on the show in May, said that lifetime limits would not be set. But in the bill as it stands, itwill be up to individual states to run the health care programs as lawmakers in state capitals see fit, meaning that states can decide if there are caps or if someone with a preexisting condition will be charged more for their coverage, The Washington Post reported.

The Washington Post reported that the bill could lead to a per capita cap on Medicaid. Some states may turn to a single-payer system. Other states could eliminate coverage for some who need it or make it so expensive that some can’t afford it.

Kimmel announced in May that his son had to undergo open heart surgery shortly after he was born. Kimmel said that if a child has to have multiple open heart surgeries, the cost can be hundreds of thousands of dollars each. 

Kimmel has urged his viewers to call their senators and tell them their views on the proposed bill. He posted the number to the Capitol Hill switchboard to his Twitter page.

Despite Kimmel calling Cassidy a liar on his show, Cassidy has not responded directly to the monologue, CNN reported. Cassidy did release the following statement:

“We have a September 30th deadline on our promise. Let’s finish the job. We must because there is a mother and father whose child will have insurance because of Graham Cassidy Heller Johnson. There is someone whose pre-existing condition will be addressed because of GCHJ.”

These are the 'Most Dangerous' celebrities on the internet, according to a new survey

What do Avril Lavigne, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Katy Perry have in common? Besides fame, that is?

They’re “dangerous” online — at least according to McAfee, the cybersecurity company, who tracks and ranks celebrities based on the search results for their name. Using Google, Bing and Yahoo search results, the company checks how many sites list results for individual celebrities and how many of those sites are likely to infect your computer.

Celebrity news, the company says, is a common front for sites planning on installing malware or otherwise compromising your computer and/or information. McAfee has ranked celebrities this way since 2008; the first celebrity to hold the title of “most dangerous” was Brad Pitt.

This year, the top of the list is Canadian pop princess Avril Lavigne, according to the new rankings. Over 14 percent of pages with her name on it also contain a threat of some sort; that number comes closer to 25 percent when “free mp3” is added to the search.

Bruno Mars and Carly Rae Jepsen are No. 2 and No. 3, followed by Zayn Malik, Celine Dion, Calvin Harris, Justin Beiber, Sean Combs, Katy Perry and Beyonce.

‘Hot single female’ uses creative sign to get electricity back after Hurricane Irma

One Florida woman who lost electricity during Hurricane Irma decided to take an unusual route to get the attention of workers.

Yahoo Lifestyle WFTS reported that Kynse Angles of Fort Myers, Florida, took some pink spray paint and created a sign reading “Hot single female seeks sexy lineman to electrify her life.”

>> Read more trending news

Wearing a pink tank top, white shorts and heels, she posed next to the sign outside and posted the photo on Instagram and Facebook Sunday.

Angles, 37, who has lived with Type 1 diabetes since childhood, had a kidney and pancreas transplant Sept. 1 before the storm.

Angles told Yahoo Lifestyle she was discharged from a Tampa, Florida, hospital too early because of a rush to release patients before the storm. She said she had problems at a nearby hotel and had to spend the storm and several days afterward at the hospital.

“I said, ‘I want my bed. I’m single. It’s hot outside. I need electricity,’” she said.

Angles said she thought the sign would be funny.

“That was my idea. I like to be humorous,” she told Yahoo Life.

“I just thought maybe if a lineman got to my neighborhood they’ll laugh and hook me up first,” Angles told WFTS.

The photo of the sign received hundreds of shares and likes on Facebook.

As it gained traction online, a Fort Myers radio station had Angles on air, which she said also played a big role in regaining power quickly.

It all worked: Later that day, Angles’ power had been restored.
