John Boyega Apologizes for Kelly Marie Tran Comments: ENDNOTES

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere

John Boyega has apologized for comments made to Variety that some readers construed as an attack on his Star Wars co-star Kelly Marie Tran.

Boyega took to Twitter on Thursday to clarify his remarks to Variety‘s Adam B. Vary that social media was a tough environment “for those who are not mentally strong” and that “you are weak to believe in every single thing that you read.” Some interpreted Boyega’s comments as a slam on Tran, who quit social media last year after months of harassment.

Boyega said Thursday that he was not speaking of his co-star, whose character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rose Tico, was the first woman of color in a lead role in the iconic franchise. [Variety]

Ryan Reynolds and Peloton Wife have met at last!

During Thursday’s episode of Today, Reynolds met Monica Ruiz, the actress who reached internet fame after starring in an ad for Peloton, which was criticized by some who viewed it as being sexist and elitist. Following the viral ad, Reynolds’ company, Aviation Gin, enlisted Ruiz to star in an ad of their own, which deftly poked fun at Ruiz’s Peloton Wife persona.

After surprising Ruiz by coming out during her interview with Hoda Kotb, Reynolds explained that at first, after seeing the Peloton ad, he simply wanted to send Ruiz some of his gin.

“I watched it. I went, ‘Oh wow. I see why there’s some backlash.’ And I said, ‘Can we just send her a year’s supply of gin? She doesn’t have to film herself,'” he recalled. “And then that sort of evolved from there.” [ET Online]
