Top 5 Newsmakers of the Week You Don’t Want to Miss
1. Transgender Rights Activist Rose Montoya Goes Topless at White House
Transgender rights activist and American model Rose Montoya goes topless at the White House Pride event on 10th June 2023. Her socially unacceptable behavior led her to receive a ban from President Joe Biden.
The incident occurred when US President Joe Biden organized the Pride Event to celebrate the social acceptance, rights, and achievements of all LGBTQ members at the Grand White House on 10th June Saturday.
In a TikTok video shared by Rose Montoya from the Pride event, the American model and trans activist were seen shaking her breasts with fellow trans friends. As the video quickly went viral online, netizens were quick to express their outrage at Rose Montoya for disgracing the community and the White House.
Soon after the online trolls, Rose Montoya released another video to publicly apologize to her fellow trans friends, family, and others whose sentiments were hurt by her actions.
2. Megan Fox Replaces Charisma Carpenter in Expendables 4
Megan Fox, you all know, for appearing in the Transformers franchise, has replaced Charisma Carpenter’s Lacy in Expendables 4. The news was confirmed after Lionsgate released the first official trailer of Expendables 4 a few days ago.
In the exclusive trailer video, Megan Fox was seen sharing a wild cozy frame with co-star Jason Statham, which Lacy was supposed to share as did in the first two Expendables films.
Since Charisma Carpenter as Lacy was nowhere to be seen in the Expendables 4 trailer to take her relationship ahead with Jason’s character, it confirmed to fans that now Megan Fox is playing the paramour of Jason’s character, Lee Christmas. This further means Megan Fox has replaced Charisma Carpenter in Expendables 4 film.
3. DC’s The Flash Fails to Light Up the Box Office Collects $130 Million in the First Three Days Weekend
Despite the lightning speed of the Scarlet Speedster, The Flash has unfortunately stumbled at the box office, collecting $55 Million on its three-day weekend. The numbers are not only lesser than what the movie was predicted to collect in its opening days ($75-$85 M) but are also short of the $67 million debut record, a previous DC flick, Black Adam, made in October 2022.
The Flash has garnered $75 million from overseas to make a global debut collection of $130 Million. Including its marketing and distribution expenses, The Flash costs $330 million to makers, which now means the Ezra Miller starter needs around $650 million to call the film a GRAND SUCCESS!
However, looking at the ongoing mixed responses DC’s new risk flick is receiving, it’s hard to say if the multi-superhero studded film will live up to the Box Office predictions.
4. Marvel Delays its Phase 5 and Phase 6 Projects Amidst the WGA Strike
