harvey weinstein

  • Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was out to dinner in Arizona Tuesday night when he was allegedly assaulted by a man in the restaurant.
  • Video obtained by TMZ shows a man slapping Weinstein twice in the face while shouting profanities at the Weinstein Company co-founder.
  • Weinstein has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by numerous women since early October.
  • Police are aware of the video footage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Harvey Weinstein was allegedly attacked Tuesday night while out at a restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

TMZ reports the former Hollywood mogul was leaving Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort when he was approached by a man who slapped him twice in the face with the back of his hand.

Video of the incident shows the man telling Weinstein to "get the f--- out of here" and calling him "a piece of s---, f---ing with those women."

Since the publication of a bombshell report in The New York Times in early October, the Weinstein Company co-founder has been accused of sexual assault and intimidation by more than 50 women including Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, Salma Hayek, Minka Kelly, and Rose McGowan.

He has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex. 

Since October, the 65-year-old has been receiving treatment at a luxury resort in Arizona called The Meadows.

TMZ reports that the man who's seen slapping Weinstein in the video asked for a photo with a producer earlier in the night. He was turned down.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, police are aware of the video footage and will investigate the incident as a misdemeanor assault if Weinstein files a report.

Weinstein is currently under investigation by Los AngelesLondon, and New York City police for sexual assault allegations.

Taking to Instagram, Winfrey shared videos from her neighborhood, indicating the extent of the damage. The videos show a fire caused by a gas leak, mud that almost reached the top of her rain boots, and helicopters hovering above.

She captioned the post, "What a day! Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara. Woke up to this blazing gas fire. then swipe left to see how deep the mud is in my backyard. Helicopters rescuing my neighbors. Looking for missing persons. 13 lives lost. #Mudslides."

My beautiful home town of Montecito.... Where my roots were placed, where my mother raised me and my family. Completely under water. I really can't believe it.

The freeway to drive to school and where @mini_jk_imbig and I would walk after school.. under water. My heart is broken.... I remember when something similar happened in La Conchita about 12 years ago, so close to us and how much it took to rebuild... I can't imagine how Montecito feels now. I am so sorry.

kit harington

  • Footage published by TMZ showed Kit Harington getting kicked out of New York City bar Barfly during a drunken night out.
  • The bar owners told "Entertainment Tonight" that the actor actually returned to the bar to pay his tab and left a great tip.
  • They said he'd be welcomed back at any time.  

 

"Game of Thrones" actor Kit Harington sent the internet into a tizzy after TMZ published video showing him getting kicked out of a New York City bar. But the King in the North on HBO's hit show made sure to make amends for his behavior.

In a statement to "Entertainment Tonight," Barfly owners Aldo Parisi and Krystyn Shari said that Harington returned to the bar later that evening to pay his bill and leave an exceptional tip.

"He came back later that night to pay his check and left a 100% tip — $70 on a $70 check," they said.

Photographs and footage showed the actor playing pool at the NYC dive bar. According to the report from TMZ, Harington was being "drunk and disorderly" before eventually being dragged from the establishment. The footage was perfect meme inspiration and internet users made quick use of it.

The Barfly owners said that the footage didn't capture the moment correctly. They said Harington walked into the bar Friday night already drunk and was there for about 30 minutes.

"Harington bought one Jameson for himself, a drink for his friend and a round of drinks for all of the other customers at the bar," they said.

They clarified that the apparent "disagreement" between Harington and another pool player was that Harington didn't understand the rules of the game being played.

"A customer was letting him take his shot for him but he didn't understand the rules of the game," they said. "The game being played is called 'Killer,' where each person takes one shot, but Harington tried to continue shooting."

After realizing that Harington was drunk, staff members asked him to leave. Parisi and Shari added that they were disappointed someone filmed the incident.

"Our customers deserve their privacy no matter who they are," they said. "We've had plenty of famous people in here in the past and nothing like that has happened to them ... Barfly wants Harington to know he is welcome back anytime." 

"Game of Thrones" won't return until 2019, but it's good to know that the King in the North is still an honorable man.

james franco

  • James Franco appeared as a guest on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Tuesday night.
  • Colbert asked the 39-year-old actor about the accusations of sexual misconduct he faced on Twitter during and after his appearance at the awards show.
  • He responded to the various accusations.

 

James Franco faced questions from Stephen Colbert about recent sexual misconduct allegations against him during an appearance on "The Late Show" Tuesday night.

"In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I've done ... I do it whenever I know that there's something wrong or needs to be changed, I make a point to do it," the 39-year-old actor said when asked about the allegations that have emerged on Twitter since his Golden Globe win for "The Disaster Artist" during Sunday night's awards ceremony. 

The actor wore a Time's Up pin in support of the movement for the ceremony.

When Colbert asked him about wearing the pin, Franco said, "First, I want to say that I do support it. Look, I was so excited to win but being in that room that night was incredible. It was powerful. I support change." 

He then responded to now-deleted tweets from actress Ally Sheedy, whom he directed in a 2014 off-Broadway play, that suggested she had a "me too" story about him.  

In one tweet, she wrote, "James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/TV business."

Franco said he had "no idea" what Sheedy referred to.

"I have total respect for her," he said. "I have no idea why she was upset. She took the tweet down … I can't speak for her."

Among the accusations were alleged acts of inappropriate behavior toward actress Violet Paley and a friend. Paley took to her Twitter to describe her experience.

"Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis," she wrote. "[And] that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?"

The actor said the Twitter accusations were "not accurate," but added, "I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don't want to shut them down in any way, and I think it's a good thing and I support it."

"The Late Show" host later asked Franco how truth and reconciliation can come from discussions. 

"If I've done something wrong, I will fix it. I have to," Franco said. "I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen. I'm here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it's off. I'm completely willing and want to."

  • Lena Dunham is being criticized for appearing in a picture with the leaders of the Time's Up initiative, which aims to combat sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
  • The actress posted the picture on Instagram with a long caption: "Humbled to stand alongside these amazing women and say #TIMESUP on systemic oppression, underrepresentation, discrimination, abuse, and violence in all industries."
  • Dunham allegedly disabled the comments on her post because she was getting a lot of negative pushback.
  • Dunham recently defended "Girls" writer Murray Miller against rape allegations and insinuated that his alleged victim was lying.
  • Some people have criticized Dunham in the past for having a "problematic" brand of feminism.

Lena Dunham is in hot water for appearing in a picture with the leaders of the Time's Up initiative, which aims to combat sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Dunham posted a picture of herself alongside the women who are leading the charge on Monday and was swiftly met with backlash.

"Humbled to stand alongside these amazing women and say #TIMESUP on systemic oppression, underrepresentation, discrimination, abuse, and violence in all industries," she wrote in the caption of her post.

Dunham, who created HBO's "Girls" and co-founded feminist newsletter Lenny Letter, has since disabled the comments on the post.

People are being especially critical of Dunham's appearance in the photo because of what some people have called her "problematic" brand of feminism. In an apparent contradiction with the values of Time's Up initiative, Dunham recently defended girls writer Murray Millar against rape allegations and insinuated that the alleged victim, actress Aurora Perrineau, was lying. 

"While our first instinct is to listen to every woman's story, our insider knowledge of Murray's situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year," Dunham and her frequent collaborator Jenni Konner said in a joint statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

This statement, in particular, made people question Dunham's motives for appearing alongside the leaders of the Time's Up movement like Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera, and Brie Larson, among others.

Twitter user @xoprincess19 used a meme to sum up people's general reactions.

Freelance writer Maria Tallarico chimed in.

And @bbneda_stan also expressed concern about Dunham's intentions.

Tessa Thompson, who also appeared in the photo, spoke out about Dunham's involvement in a now-deleted statement on Instagram, according to Paper.

"Lena was not anywhere present in our group during the countless hours of work for the last two months. We hosted an open house for the actresses for red carpet messaging and Lena presence was a surprise to us all. This is a time of reckoning. And for many, a re-education. So many women also have real work to do. I'm afraid it's too nuanced a conversation to have on this platform. But I hear you, and know that your thoughts and words are not lost on me. It's been discussed," Thompson wrote, according to Paper, which published her deleted comment.

On Tuesday, Thomspon clarified her words in a post on Twitter.

"I, in no way, want to diminish Lena Dunham and her work, her voice, and her importance," Thomspon wrote.

The actress said that her words were taken out of context.

"I regret that my words were misinterpreted to distract from the most important thing: The Time's Up campaign is for everyone, in all capacities, contributions big and small. It doesn't belong to any one [sic]," she continued.

In another tweet, Thompson reiterated that she wasn't apologizing.

"This was not meant as an apology, as much as an attempt to re-center the conversation around the work. The truth remains: Many women, particularly women of color, don’t feel safe and seen. To those women, like Aurora Perrineau—I see you. I am with you. This must be clear," she wrote.

But Dunham isn't the only person with reported ties to sexual misconduct allegations who is involved with the Time's Up initiative, as Huffington Post's Zeba Blay pointed out.

For example, on Sunday, Portman put the Golden Globes on blast for only nominating men for the best director award. But in 2009, the actress signed a petition alongside 99 other celebrities in support of releasing convicted rapist and film director Roman Polanski from prison after he was arrested on a 1977 warrant tied to charges of rape, which he evaded for over 20 years by fleeing the US.

Natalie Portman

Additionally, many celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Emma Stone, Greta Gerwig, and Blake Lively have been criticized for working with alleged sexual abuser Woody Allen and wearing black to the Golden Globes in solidarity with sexual assault survivors.

Representatives for Time's Up and Lena Dunham didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

Read Thompson's full statement here:

I sometimes lack finesse in navigating social media. Hard to discuss issues with nuance there. A response I made to comments on an Instagram post became fodder for a piece that I believe was designed to create conflict where there isn't any. It's perhaps more complex than that. But I, in no way, want to diminish Lena Dunham and her work, her voice, and her importance. We have spoken and she knows my heart. I feel a responsibility to women that have sometimes felt ignored, dismissed and underrepresented. They are my beacons. I regret that my words were misinterpreted to distract from the most important thing: The Time's Up campaign is for everyone, in all capacities, contributions big and small. It doesn't belong to any one. It is for us all. The beauty of this huge collaboration has been a group of countless committed people who have come together for a shared purpose. To create change. And it is such a powerful thing. I stand, humbled, with everyone involved. Linked not ranked.

logan paul

  • Logan Paul has faced backlash since uploading a video to YouTube that featured a man's body hanging from a tree.
  • YouTube released a statement regarding the video on Tuesday, saying Paul's "channel violated our community guidelines."
  • The statement also said YouTube was "looking at further consequences" for Paul.
  • More than 400,000 people have signed a petition requesting Paul to be barred from YouTube.


YouTube has finally released a statement to the public regarding Logan Paul's video showing a dead body.

Early last week, Paul uploaded a video showing the body of a man hanging from a tree in Japan's Aokigahara forest, often called the "Suicide Forest" because people are known to have killed themselves there. Paul eventually removed the video, apologized, and said he was taking a break from vlogging.

More than 400,000 people have signed a Change.org petition asking YouTube to remove Paul's channel. As of this article's publishing, Paul has approximately 15.6 million subscribers on YouTube.

In a series of tweets Tuesday, YouTube made a public statement about Paul's video and the response from people around the world.

Here is YouTube's statement in full:

"An open letter to our community:

"Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You're right to be. You deserve to know what's going on.

"Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views.

"As Anna Akana put it perfectly: 'That body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness.'

"We expect more of the creators who build their community on YouTube, as we're sure you do too. The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences.

"It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying. We know that the actions of one creator can affect the entire community, so we'll have more to share soon on steps we're taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again."

The actress and comedian Anna Akana sent what has become a viral tweet to Paul about her family's experience with suicide.

"Dear @LoganPaul, When my brother found my sister's body, he screamed with horror & confusion & grief & tried to save her," Akana wrote. "That body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness."

The new statement from YouTube is the first time the site has said Paul's video violated its community guidelines. On January 2, two days after Paul first posted the video — and a day after he removed it — Polygon reported on a statement that YouTube had provided to another of its creators:

"Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video. YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner. If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated.

"We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center."

The updated statement from YouTube says the company "acted accordingly" when Paul uploaded the video, though it does not explicitly say it removed the video. According to Polygon's report, it's still unclear whether Paul was sanctioned by YouTube to take down the video or whether he removed it on his own.

Representatives for Paul didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

If you are having feelings of depression or thoughts of suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

NOW WATCH: This artist is the Lisa Frank of tattoos

james franco

  • James Franco won a Golden Globe award Sunday night for his performance in "The Disaster Artist."
  • Since his win, people on social media have described instances of alleged inappropriate behavior by the actor.
  • Among those is actress Ally Sheedy, who has since deleted her tweets. 

 

James Franco is under a cloud of sexual misconduct allegations following his Golden Globes win Sunday night.

The 39-year-old actor, who won best actor in a comedy or musical for "The Disaster Artist," was hit with some backlash on social media as women came forward about their experiences with the actor.

Actress Violet Paley took to her Twitter and described alleged acts of inappropriate behavior by the actor towards her and a friend.

"Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis," she wrote. "[And] that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?" 

Paley's reference brings up Franco's admitted attempts at getting a 17-year-old into his hotel room via Instagram and texts before. The actor reached out to Scottish tourist Lucy Clode after meeting her at his Broadway show "Of Mice and Men." Though Clode is a minor, the age of consent in New York is 17. The actor addressed the scandal on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" back in 2014. 

"I guess, you know, I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of, you know, how social media is tricky," he said of his contact with the teen. 

His final conclusion was that he "used bad judgment" and "learned [his] lesson."

james franco

Paley went on to say that she wasn't 17 when her personal experience occurred. In another tweet, she added that she and the actor had a "consensual" relationship and has more to tell about Franco.

"I wasn't 17, I was an adult," she wrote. "There are a lot more details that will be out soon. Working with people to do it in the best, safest way." 

Paley tweeted Tuesday morning that Franco reportedly reached out to her and a couple of other girls with an apology that she would not accept. 

"A couple weeks ago, James offered me [and] a few other girls an overdue, annoyed, convenient phone 'apology,'" she wrote. "I don't accept, but maybe some other people's lives would be made easier if he donated all of his earnings from 'The Disaster Artist' to @RAINN01."

Rainn is an anti-sexual violence organization that helps sexual assault victims. 

Another user to bring up inappropriate behavior was filmmaker and actress Sarah Tither-Kaplan. She alleged that Franco exploited her by having her strip down and do "full nudity" in two of his movies for $100 per day.

She described the struggles of young actors and the abuse of those in power to take advantage of them. 

"I rely on powerful people to help me, because I don't have access to opportunities without them," she wrote. "If they choose to abuse their power and take advantage of my need to work, that isn't my fault. It's the fault of the abuser."

Franco wore a Time's Up pin during the Golden Globes in support of the initiative, which aims to combat sexual harassment and sexism. People on Twitter were vocal about a perceived hypocrisy in how the Time’s Up message of the night coincided with Franco being given an award.

"The Breakfast Club" actress Ally Sheedy also shared a series of tweets, which have since been deleted, naming the actor. In screenshots taken by Vanity Fair, the actress tweeted three times about Franco. 

She first asked, "Why is Franco allowed in?"

In another tweet she said, "OK wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes. #MeToo."

In a final tweet she said, "James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/TV business." 

Sheedy starred in the off-broadway play "The Long Shrift" in 2014, which Franco directed. 

Franco's representatives didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

  • To take a stand against sexual misconduct in Hollywood, celebrities wore black to the Golden Globes over the weekend to show their solidarity with survivors as a part of the Time's Up initiative.
  • Just three women wore color: Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, model Barbra Meier, and actress Blanca Blanco. Amid criticism, each woman defended her choice.
  • Tatna told E! that her wardrobe choice was "a cultural thing."
  • Blanco responded to people who shamed her outfit on Twitter. "Shaming is part of the problem," she tweeted.
  • Meier spoke out on Instagram, "If we now restrict this because some men can't control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion."

To take a stand against sexual misconduct in Hollywood, celebrities wore black to the Golden Globes over the weekend to show their solidarity with survivors as a part of the Time's Up initiative. But amid the fashion blackout, three women wore color: Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, model Barbra Meier, and actor Blanca Blanco.

Each woman's outfit choice had personal, significant meaning. Here's what each of them said about their dresses.

Meher Tatna said her outfit had cultural significance. 

Meher Tatna

Tatna, who was born in Mumbai, India, explained to E! that her decision to wear red had cultural significance

"My mom and I planned this together a couple of months ago, it is a cultural thing," Tatna explained. "When you have a celebration, you don't wear black. So she would be appalled if I were to [have] worn black. And so this is for my mom."

Tatna also said that she wore a Time's Up pin in support of the movement.

"I do have my Time's Up button, so [I'm] standing in solidarity with all these other women," she said. "The HFPA is 60% women, we'll have our stories. We are also journalists, so anybody who expresses themselves, especially on this topic, we are in solidarity with."

CNN's Vice President of Programming S. Mitra Kalita defended Tatna's outfit on Twitter.

Blanca Blanco defended her outfit on Twitter after she was shamed for wearing a red dress with cutouts.

"I love red," Blanco said in a statement to Refinery29. "Wearing red does not means I am against [the Time's Up] movement."

"I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to brake [sic] the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice. It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the Time's Up movement because true change is long overdue," she continued.

But Blanco faced sharp criticism on Twitter, where people not only judged the shade of her dress but also its style. 

Blanco said that shaming her is counterproductive. 

"The issue is bigger than my dress color #TIMESUP," she wrote.

Model Barbara Meier penned a touching Instagram post before hitting the red carpet.

"A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the Time Up movement! I think this is a great and extremely important initiative!" she began. "Nevertheless, I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight."

The model said that she sees fashion as a form of self-expression.

"If we want this to be the Golden Globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it's the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion," she continued.

To Meier, fashion is a form of protest.

"We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also OK, to dress up a little more sexy. If we now restrict this, because some men can't control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion," Meier wrote.

Viele Frauen werden heute im Zuge der Time‘s Up Bewegung auf dem Roten Teppich schwarz tragen. Ich finde diese Initiative im Allgemeinen super und extrem wichtig. Trotzdem habe ich mich entscheiden, heute ein buntes Kleid zu tragen. Wenn wir wollen, dass heute die Golden Globes der starken Frauen sind, die für ihre Rechte kämpfen, ist es in meinen Augen der falsche Weg, sich nicht mehr körperbetont anzuziehen und uns die Freude am Ausdruck unserer Persönlichkeit durch Mode zu nehmen. Wir haben uns diese Freiheit lange erkämpft, dass wir tragen können, was wir möchten und es auch in Ordnung ist, sich sexy zu kleiden. Wenn wir das einschränken, weil sich einige Männer nicht unter Kontrolle haben, ist das in meinen Augen ein Rückschritt. Wir sollten nicht schwarz tragen müssen, um ernstgenommen zu werden. Wir Frauen sollten strahlen, farbenfroh sein und funkeln. So wie es in unserer Natur liegt! Das symbolisiert in meinen Augen unsere Freiheit und neue Stärke. Um das aber dennoch nochmal klar zu sagen: Viele schreckliche Dinge sind passiert und dürfen sich nie wieder wiederholen! Und wir sollten das immer wieder und direkt ansprechen und aufklären! Ich freue mich auf starke und inspirierende Reden heute Abend! (c) @gettyentertainment --- A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the time‘s up movement! I think this is a great and extremely important initiative! Nevertheless I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight. If we want this to be the Golden globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it’s the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion. We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also ok, to dress up a little more sexy. If we now restrict this, because some men can’t control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion. We should not have to wear black to be taken serious. US women should shine, be colorful and sparkle. Just like it is our nature. In my opinion this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength. But to make clear: A lot of bad things happened and should never happen again!!!

"A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the time‘s up movement!
I think this is a great and extremely important initiative!
Nevertheless I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight. If we want this to be the Golden globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it's the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion.

We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also ok, to dress up a little more sexy.
If we now restrict this, because some men can't control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion.

We should not have to wear black to be taken serious. 
US women should shine, be colorful and sparkle. 
Just like it is our nature.
In my opinion this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength.

But to make clear:
A lot of bad things happened and should never happen again!!!"

  • "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland is facing backlash after posing in a video on Instagram from InStyle's Golden Globes after party.
  • In the video, Hyland is seen stumbling out of an elevator with a champagne glass and a bottle in her hands, with a bellhop alongside her. 
  • Hyland grabs the bellhop's hat and stumbles backwards, before he catches her and the elevator doors close.
  • Hyland captioned the video: "2018 starting off great. Tip #1: When you drink alone. Drink alone w/ #JohntheBellHop @instylemagazine#goldenglobes party"
  • People are slamming the video and calling it inappropriate given the award show's focus on combatting sexual harassment and sexual assault. 


Stars in attendance at the 2018 Golden Globes used the event to take a stand against sexual harassment — and many people are slamming actress Sarah Hyland for being inappropriate in a video she shared from InStyle's after party.

Hyland posted a video of herself exiting InStyle's elevator with the caption, "2018 starting off great. Tip #1: When you drink alone. Drink alone w/ #JohntheBellHop @instylemagazine#goldenglobes party."

In the video, Hyland stumbles out of the elevator with a champagne bottle in one hand and a glass in the other, accompanied by a bellhop. She grabs the bellhop's hat and stumbles backwards before he catches her and the elevator doors close.

Douglas Friedman, who directed the video, described Hyland as "getting smashed" in the InStyle Magazine elevator in his Instagram post.

Many users commented on the video, criticizing Hyland for posting something that they consider inappropriate given the recent focus on sexual harassment and efforts to combat it. People said the timing of the video was "in bad taste" and "controversial." 

Instagram user @lmpecks2 said, "A bit controversial in heightened awareness times of Hollywood's time's up, don't ya think?"

Another user, @tizzdafrizz, said, "Male or female, acting drunk isn't cute. Sound mind at all times."

Other fans came to the defense of Hyland, saying that the video was "harmless" and "cute," and meant only to be taken as a skit. 

Instagram user @skippy22j said, "Not sure what all the fuss is about. It's funny" and @dazeee310 said, "I see nothing wrong with this video, and I'm usually pretty conservative. If people are offended by this, then don't watch it. It's meant to be a cute joke. Don't read into it and take it so serious."

Hyland also took to Twitter in response to comments about the bellhop, writing, "#JohntheBellHop is a very nice old man. FYI. *completely sober*"

According to InStyle's post featuring Hyland's video, the "Modern Family" actress was the first celebrity of many to participate in this year's after party elevator videos. She wasn't the only celebrity who posed with alcohol in the video series.

Other videos from the elevator showed celebrities making fun entrances by posing with their award (like Allison Janney and Elisabeth Moss), while others highlighted Time magazine's "Time's Up" initiative (like Constance Wu, America Ferrara, and Natalie Portman).

Representatives for Sarah Hyland and InStyle magazine didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

The 60th Grammy Awards, held this year on January 28 at 7:30 p.m., are a time for music's biggest stars to show off their unique fashion sense on the red carpet.

In 1999, Missy Elliot wore this white jacket and hat combo with feathers dangling from the sleeves.

She's had a few amazing Grammy Award's looks throughout the years.



Perhaps the most unforgettable Grammy Awards outfit ever was Jennifer Lopez's plunging Versace dress in 2000.

JLo's dress caused a stir across the internet and in the fashion world. In a blog post, Google's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, even said her dress was the reason the company invented Google Image Search.

Lopez says she still has the dress, but still doesn't understand the craze behind her outfit: "It was a nice dress. I had no idea it was going to become such a big deal."



The next year, Christina Aguilera decided to go for a very revealing dress and cornrows in her hair.

"This was a point in my life when I wanted to have braids, when I wanted to be able to be unafraid to experiment," she told People.

Aguilera would likely be brought to task for cultural appropriation in this day and age. Actress and activist Amandla Stenberg has spoken about why white celebrities wearing cornrows is problematic, referencing Aguilera's look — watch it here.

  • In a hilarious video posted to Facebook on Monday, Jennifer Lawrence showed what it looks like when she's wearing formal makeup versus when she's bare-faced.
  • In the video, Lawrence that she was going to be Emma Stone's date to Golden Globes after-parties.
  • But things went awry when Stone canceled on her halfway through her "glam," which resulted in an incomplete makeup look.
  • "You just wanted to come over to my house. So I sent my hair and makeup team home and now this is what I look like," Lawrence said in the video, before turning to the camera to reveal her one smoky eye and her other bare eye.
  • The actors found the situation funny and couldn't stop laughing throughout the video.

In case you didn't already know, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are best friends. Further proving just how solid their friendship is, Lawrence completely laughed it off when Stone canceled their plans to go to the Golden Globes after-parties at the last minute.

In a hilarious video posted to Lawrence's official Facebook on Monday, Stone is heard offscreen asking Lawrence to recount the night's events.

"Hi, what happened tonight?" Stone, from offscreen, asks Lawrence.

"Well, you had told me you wanted me to be your date to the after-parties so I, you know, got us tickets to some after-parties, booked a car, and I was halfway through glam when you told me you didn’t wanna go," Lawrence said, dramatically turning to the camera to reveal that she only had makeup on half of her face.

The contrast between her expertly executed smoky eye and bare face caused the women to erupt in laughter.

"You just wanted to come over to my house, so I sent my hair and makeup team home and now this is what I look like," Lawrence continued.

People can't get enough of this beauty blunder. Lawrence's Facebook post has gone viral with 853,000 views at the time of this post, and the comments are full of love for the actress' quirky personality.

"She's so frickin adorable," one Facebook user commented on the video. "I love your sense of humor! You still look amazing," someone else added. "How is it that not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence?!? Down to earth, not afraid to be 'ugly', speaking her mind. What's not to love?" a third person wrote.

Lawrence and Stone seemed to find the situation funny, too.

This isn't the first wacky situation the dynamic duo has found themselves in. Earlier this year, the actresses revealed that they initially became friends because they had the same "stalker." And while some people would be mortified to be in that situation, Stone called it their "adorable love story."
